Easter Feaster

Alright, I'll admit it.  My thoughts are bizarre at times.  For example, when we have Easter dinner, does anyone find it strange that it's usually ham we eat?  It's about the first thing I can think of on the "Not Kosher" menu.  Is it intentional?  Did someone say, "Hey, let's eat pork and show the Old Testament folks we don't need their law anymore!" or what?
If you're thinking I mean this as an anti-Semitic rant, you're way off.  Jesus and the disciples were Jewish.  Being a Christian and being anti-Semitic is like loving lasagna and hating pasta.  You can't truly be both.  Sure you could eat no pasta lasagna, but that would mean you weren't eating the real thing.  In other words, a person can't be a genuine Christian and be anti-Semitic.  They can lay claim to it, but they would not be partaking in the real deal.
God is not about hate. God doesn't hate Jews, fags, people of color, foreign people, big people, little people, or even annoying people who post irritating things on Facebook. That's why God put a guy in the endzone at every football game- so we could be reminded that we're loved every time they kick a field goal (John 3:16, right?).

So, when you eat ham this Easter, remember:  A Jew died for you, rose for you, and intercedes for you.  Because he did, you can eat all the pork you want...until it clogs your arteries and you die, but that's another issue.

  1. Bon soir! Yes, my novel is waiting on some Navajo translations and the dear sweet translator is SLOW. Not, blue parking spot slow, just S-L-L-L-O-OOOOOOOOOOW. A Mohawk friend told me to gt comfortable with "Indian Time". Not a problem. Then the same friend told me that the translator took Indian Time to a whole new level.

    Are your novels out yet???

    1. Oh wow, it sounds like you have your hands full there. The only novels that are out are self-pubs that will be pulled off Amazon and re-edited soon. "Angel Blood: Family Secrets" and "From Chicago with Hope" are their names. If you have a Kindle or Kindle reader, I can send you copies of the current ones. Rachelle's Blog convinced me to pull them and work on my prose. (Pus I found some typos Shh :D)

      (By the way, I'm switching this Blog over to WordPress ever since I found out that Blogspot doesn't cue in Google by subect due to lack of tags.)

    2. Oh great. Is Wordpress complicated? Help! I'd switch to wherever the most traffic is, but alot of my friends are on Blogspot. Soon I hope to have my own website, but I'll have to get one of my kids to help me with that. My husband has a nuclear powered phone, but cannot texxt. So he's no help with a website.
      I *liked* you on Facebook, but if you want, I'll friend you. It's nice to meet other writers.
      I'd LOVE to read your stuff.No Kindle though, got a Word file?
      If you want, I could flip you a bit of my WIP, and you could critique it, if you'd like. No pressure. (readitreaditeadit)

    3. OK I sent them to you on Word. Cut much slack, please! :D

      Wordpress is not very complicated, although it's not as easy as Blogspot. I have noticed more traffic already, though. If you already have friends here, I'd say you could do both with some cut and paste. I'm transferring older stuff over there now, because I'm too wrap up in the latest book to blog much. GRIN

  3. Actually, I meant the book I'm writing, but I'm reading yours as well. I have two other books. One is the follow up to Angel Blood which is finished but not even edited the first time and the other is the YA book I'm working on at the moment.
