[Gamaliel, a teacher of the Law, said,] “So my advice is, leave these men alone. If they are teaching and doing these things merely on their own, it will soon be overthrown. But if it is of God, you will not be able to stop them. You may even find yourselves fighting against God.” (Acts 5:38-39, NLT]
Wise man, that Gamaliel. Not a good thing to find yourself fighting against God. He wins every time. (And see. Here’s proof that not all lawyers are bad, I say while winking at my lawyer friends.)
Okay, despite pain in my right shoulder (a trouble spot with me) and my allergies flaring up so that my head is stuffed and I’m sneezing like mad, I’m determined to make major headway on LL today. I want to get this book done and out of my office ASAP. I’m feeling a ton of creative pressure regarding my next book (still clueless what it will be), and my brain feels like mush right now.
I heard from a friend this week who was checking on my mailing address because she was working on her Christmas cards!!!!! I can’t tell you the panic that started in my heart. It can’t possibly be time for Christmas cards already!!! I have a sneaking suspicion that this will be the second year in a row when I send few cards and do little decorating. I was supposed to host a writers’ group Christmas party but had to pass that pleasure along to someone else because of a speaking/PR trip to the Midwest next month. Without that party, I just don’t feel a pressing need to decorate in the all-out manner I usually do. Daughter #1 and her family moved into a new home this fall, and I think we’ll just go to her house for Christmas. (Think I should tell her we’re coming?)
Okay, enough blog blather. Time to refill my coffee cup and get to work.
