Jeremiah Bible Study

I started the Jeremiah research yesterday. I thought the study would be boring as Jeremiah is known as the 'weeping prophet'. I have not found that to be true. Jeremiah was sad over the fate of Jerusalem. The country was in a time of crisis. Does that sound familiar? Jeremiah knew if the people of Jerusalem did not turn again to worshiping the one true God, the country would be destroyed. Perhaps Jeremiah has words for the USA today. Stay tuned. I'll let you know.

I'm Baaaak!

Did you think I got lost searching for Sallie Bluejacket? I didn't realize it had been so long since I posted on the blog. I've been traveling, visiting children and grandchildren. When I'm with the children, all thoughts of blogging goes right out the window.

I've also had company visiting so that meant house cleaning. Ugh! I hate to clean house. I would rather be in my office communing with my computer.

Now I have little piles of work all over my workspace that must be done before I can get back to writing Murder on Tour. I need to write book reviews for The Fifteenth Letter, Romantic Notions, and Piercing the Veil. Hopefully those reviews will be up on Bookloons.com this week. I am reading The Prosecution Rests for review with Earlene Fowler's new book Love Mercy waiting in the wings. I have an opportunity to interview Ms. Fowler also for posting on Bookloon.com. That will be a first for me. I will inquire if I can also post it on this blog also. I have long admired Earlene Fowler's work.

Oh yes, way back on the corner of my desk is my taxes. I must do them but keep putting it off.

I must start writing Bible Study lessons for LifeWay in April. They will take some time to research. I will be blogging about the lessons as I write them. Then way, way back there somewhere is the genealogy that I need to enter into my computer program. All those elusive notes that must be corraled and put together like a puzzle. I often wonder if any of my children will appreciate the effort I've put into recording their geneology or if it will all be thrown out with the trash.

On a brighter note, my ornamental pear trees are blooming and the dandelions are making headway in the yard. Is spring here or do we have more cold weather coming?
