Winter is Here the Synopsis

Eva, a 64 year old woman working an office job as an official of the environment squadron of the Government is challenged to write a forbidden book under cover. The setting is 2064, in a climate controlled city. Eva lives in one of the rare 150 year old homes that has been grandfathered into the new technology apartment complexes. One of her co-workers, Mango is a spy after Eva’s job trying to catch Eva in illegal action. The government controls Christian activity so Eva needs to make sure all of her known Christian activity is approved by the government and all of her unknown Christian activity is well hidden. Eva has an old friend that lives in a self contained guarded Christian Community located on the outskirts of the city called the Eagles Nest. Her friend, Eily owns this community and has opened it to all Christians wanting to hide away from the government. Eily was able to be grandfathered in by owning all the property when the government took over the banks. Eagles Nest seems nonthreatening to the government at this time. But if the government were to find out that the community had it’s own guard that secretly scanned for marked individuals it would be shut down and taken over immediately. Eily gives Eva a challenge to write a biography book about five women who were involved in the ministry Eily started over 50 years earlier. One of the five women happens to be Eva’s mother. These journals explain a real time ministry networking with CWJC and other community helps to bring women and then children close to God and a help to their family and community. Each journal, although fiction, explains each phase and action of JVR, a networking ministry.

Eva accepts the book challenge and confides in a Book clerk named Eddie who owns the antique book store. This is a very rare store that sells old books, journals, pens, and other writing accessories. He also helps people who still write illegal books and sells them under ground. He is not a Christian, but does not believe in the government ways. The people he works with are a mixture of rebels and Christians. Eva takes her chances getting involved with Eddie, but feels he’s her only hope to accomplishing her feat. Eva confronts several close calls and decides to finish her book while on vacation under the protection of Eagles nest. But when she goes home after her vacation Eva finds her apartment ransacked and is scanned by a robogaurd.

Panicked, Eva runs back to the Eagles nest barely getting in the gate before being locked down. Margo tries to get in only to sound the alarm which shuts Eagles nest down by activating the overhead armor cover and surrounding gates. Sounds of the old 1940 air raid sirens filled the air along with zombie like people by the thousands trying to enter Eagles Nest. After a week of activity the nest went back to its peaceful quiet fortress. After several weeks of solitude, the Eagles Nest alarm sounds off while being broke into by the government, All the residents of Eagles nest run underground to meet with other groups from around the world. They are in pursuit by the government, and always seem to be only a few steps ahead.

Lose 55 by 55 self challenge

Lose 55 by 55 self challenge didn't go over very well. My 55th birthday is less than a week away and all I accomplished was to relocate the weight to my mid section. So frustrating. I even started a challenge at work to drink 50 oz of water a day and walk 15 minutes a day. I can't even do that! I get so frustrated with myself. I can go on and on with excuses and I use to's, and the why's of the need for health. But it doesn't change the facts. It's been three months since I've even blogged. Well, life goes on with or without us. I'm still here blessed as ever. God is still using me even though I'm not the easiest person to use. So I'm thinking if I do what I need to do, post my food and exercise diary like I said I was going to do, maybe it would help. If I knew I was being accountable to somebody and saw my choices good and bad on paper maybe I would make better choices. The apps are nice but I think if I stick to simple journaling I would be more apt to stick with it. We'll see. Today is Saturday July 4 2015 and I will start now.

My mentor. Every Christian should have one.

Every Christian should have a mentor and every Christian should be a mentor. My mentor was my mother-in-law who passed away Sept 8, 2014. The thing was, she didn't even know it. What a sweet Christian woman! She wasn't perfect, but that's what made her the perfect mentor. She showed me how to be a loving mother and wife. She also showed me what it is like to live for Jesus, no matter what. She hardly made it to church, yet she was faithful in her bible study. Her eyes lit up whenever the subject of God came up. She voiced her opinion which most of the time was quite comical! She was a quiet spoken person and when something riled her up everybody listened and took to heart what she was saying. She always thought of others before herself and hardly ever complained, about anything. She didn't think she was anything special! I guess that's what made her so special. Even though she is in Heaven with our Heavenly Father, she still lives within me and still mentors me. I only hope I can be half the mentor to somebody else, as she's been to me. I need to find a new mentor; I know God will bring one. I need to find someone to mentor, and I don't feel qualified at all. But one thing is for sure, being a mentor keeps you accountable, for if you know somebody is looking to you for direction, it makes you think twice before making foolish choices. Titus 2:3-5

When it rains it pours but God is the only umbrella you need

I posted this little quote God gave me on September 8, 2014 that day was quite a day. I'd be lying if I said I was strong and had courage through it all, I wasn't. Oh I know God doesn't give you more than you can handle. And I know God is in control. And I know all things work out for good for those whose trust in him. Yes I know this and more and I believe all of it. My human heart still weighs heavy. The tears still flow freely. My brain still goes blank. I'm so so happy God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit lives in me! My husband got news that morning that he had to have a heart cath that following Friday. It was suspected that he had a possible blockage. And with still a heart valve leak from a major heart valve repair only 18 months earlier, it was a possibility he could go into an open heart surgery again. Then as the day progressed he found out that is job of 19 years is being dissolved as of the end of the year. Then we ended the day with the passing of his sweet Mother. His mom Went peacefully and is out of pain in Heaven, singing and laughing with the angles and all the loved ones who went before her. My husbands heart cath went smoothly and his heart is good, leak is very small, and no blockage. Now we wait on the job situation. I know all will be okay, even better than okay. We are actually excited waiting to see what God has for us. God is Holy! God is Awesome!  Am I weird? Some might argue that. But, no I am blessed! Thank you Heavenly Father!

The above was written on September 14, 2014. I drafted the above blog until it was okay to post.

Now, five months later... My quote last September 8, 2014 ‘when it rains it pours’ as my dear mother-in-law passed away, my husband found out his open heart surgery the year before of a heart valve repair didn’t fully repair the leak, and word his current job of 19 years was to end within a few months…here are some other quotes that tag along.. “When storms come, just grab an umbrella."  "We cannot change the weather, but we can adjust our attitude about it."  “The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain,” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.  "Rain will come and go in a day, but our outlook lasts a lifetime.”  To add to this last quote, our outlook and reaction to ‘life’ last in others life times as well. We are being watched…We say we have a mighty God! A God who is in control of ALL things! We are being watched…Our God is being Watched…What are others seeing? Praise our HOLY Father! HE IS IN CONTROL!

The Book of Revelation has always inspired and allured my interest. The History Channel on Comcast aired a two part show on Revelation at the end of December of 2014. While these types of shows are very interesting to me, they seem to bring up more questions than they answer. One of my many confusion topics is the 144 thousand. At one time I thought I had it all figured out, but HA! No, not at all. In fact I'm more confused now that before. However, while reading one of my devotion plans from YouVerson named, you got it, Revelation, God spoke to me through chapter 7. Still not completely clear, but so very interesting to me. Verse 3 "hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we shall have sealed the servant of our God on their Foreheads." V4 144 thousand. Out of every tribe of Juda. I understand these are God's chosen but I ask in my mind, what about us non-Jewish Christians? Go down to v 13 and 14. I still have more questions than answers, but this chapter had a healing, comforting, peaceful effect on me. Of course God is in Control! My wondering, curious mind enjoys figuring out mysteries. In fact, as I've said before, that's what led me to read the Bible before I was even a Christian. The Mystery of the book of Revelation and the end times.

Currently I'm using YouVerson app on my phone for my daily devotions. A very handy tool. There are so many plans to choose from. Oh, and yes, I finally did finish reading the Bible all the way through. Not in 90 days, not in a year, but in 3 years. And I'm thinking of doing it again. I like to read it slow and let it speak to me. Reading anything fast just doesn't sink into my brain. Everybody is different and I'm so not saying this is the only or even the best way to read the Bible. In fact I would be more correct to say, I'm the exception not the rule. I do have a hard time comprehending. Sometimes I have to read the same section of the Bible over several days just to really get what it's saying. Or should I say what God is saying to me. But that's Okay! I now know God made me, He knows how I work better than I do. And it's really OKAY! :) Isn’t our Heavenly Father the BEST!!!!
