So I’m not hugely Christian - kinda shaken in my beliefs. But something happened today that is just inexplicable.
I have a coworker who, to all appearances, has been out for me ever since he became friends with another certain coworker (who is now employed elsewhere). Whenever he says something to me, it tends to be negative. So he greeted me when I walked in today, and instantly I was like, in my head, ‘so what did I do wrong now?’
But instead, he pulled out a $20 and offered it to me, telling me that God told him I needed that money and that he should give it to me.
This is astounding because, being at odds as we were, not being friends on Facebook or anything, there is no possible way he could have known how much I am in need of money right now. It might have been a lucky guess, but if so, he better play the lotto too, because he’s on the ball.
Also, it was a random act of kindness that I was not expecting, so I’m still kind of floored by it.
So, kind of looking at God in a more serious light now.christian random acts of kindness faith-restoring acts mind blown
Fortnight will be a series of fourteen short stories centering around a dangerous setup and its fallout. It’s going to precede Sovereign in publishing in hopes of raising enough money to get the novel published. I’m expecting it to be a great deal of fun to write - and to read!
I’ll try to post snippets of it as I write it day by day. Any character sketches I do will also wind up here, most likely. It’s going to be a very open project, and I hope I’ll get some feedback on it as I go.
In case I haven’t introduced it yet, this is my official writing blog - and I have a new project in the works!writing deboracracy fortnight: a darkness fortnight
Lightning struck a tree just behind the rafters at a high school football game in Florida. Then, as Deadspin writes, "The football team scurries for cover. The band plays on."
"The football team scurries for cover. The band plays on."
"THE BAND PLAYS ON."
sports teams are weak.
band stops for nothing
They just don’t know, man.
