New suspense release asks hard questions such as “Is killing ever justified?”

Part 2 of an Interview with Andrew Huff, Author of A Cross to Kill In Andrew Huff’s A Cross to Kill (Kregel Publications) , John Cross is a small-town pastor, bent on leading his flock to follow God’s calling. He’s not the sort of man one would expect to have a checkered past. But the truth is that the man behind the pulpit preaching to his sheep was once a wolf—an assassin for the CIA. When John decided to follow Christ, he put that work behind him, determined to pay penance for all the lives he took. However, putting away his old life isn’t as easy as he would have liked. A Cross to Kill is not only a riveting story of suspense, it’s also a deep exploration of the moral quandaries that face those who choose to follow the Prince of Peace in a violent world. One of the biggest questions John must face is whether there is ever any legitimate justification for the taking of another person’s life. Is killing ever justified? “The Scripture could not be clearer that we are not

The Bachelor: Peter: Week 4: The producers were definitely to blame for that one

via GIPHY My Monday before blogging tonight: Woke up an hour early because I had a meeting at 8:30 AM and had something I needed to try to do before the meeting. Didn't get into office until 8:15 and could not get everything going to get graphic done that I needed to post. The two hours during the meeting was the most productive I was all day because I was emailing people and getting things done while listening in. Spent a good bit of time wrestling with my laptop before I finally restarted it. Also spent a good bit of time trying to get Adobe Creative Suite updated so I could update Photoshop on my laptop.  Last week my desktop crashed, and I did all my graphics on it, so this is why I am struggling with Photoshop. I had set out some popsicles that were iced over and I needed to throw away. Didn't have time to take them out to the trash can in the garage right that moment, so left them on the counter. I walked into the kitchen later and one (or more) melted. I he

I Want to Be Like Daniel, I Want to Be Like Ruth

This used to be a song that was sung all the time on Sunday nights. That was too long ago for these guys, evidently. I Want to be Like Daniel, I Want to be Like Ruth (Boys) I want to be like Daniel… (Girls) I want to be like Ruth… (Boys) I want to be like Daniel… (Girls) I want to be like Ruth… (Girls) For Ruth was so, so, sweet and kind (Boys) And Daniel was a mighty man (Boys) I want to be like Daniel. (Girls) I want to be like Ruth.

The Bachelor: Peter: Week 3 reveals the fakers

I would say there is something about Mondays and not being able to get my act together to start The Bachelor on time, but that's life every day of the week. It just is. So, I'm starting 15 minutes later than I intended. I'll be caught up in no time if I zoom through all the ridiculousness of the recap of the champagne from last week. The next day, Hannah Ann is distraught over being called a champagne stealer. Alayah figures Peter is so exhausted from dealing with it for two days. I know I am. Victoria P. is ready for her one-on-one date. We didn't see when her date card arrived. Peter is going to show him around his hometown, but first she has to look the part. He takes her to the western wear store. he and his friends like to line dance, so he gives her lessons in the store. via GIPHY I'm too old for this ooey gooeyness from her. He takes her to the local honky tonk. A group is already there line dancing to a band. They join in. They make out

I'll Fly Away

I find it a little odd that the kids are so into "I'll Fly Away." That statement would surprise you based on getting started, but it's true.

The Bachelor: Peter: Week 2 Confirms Whining Will Get You Everywhere

I made stew today so that I would be ready to eat dinner after work and ready to start blogging when the episode started. I sure should have turned it off long before I did (well before I took some to my parents) because I have burned my tongue multiple times and will have to finish during commercial breaks. Good intentions... But, typical Monday. That's kind of how the rest of my day has gone too. Now, onto our show! Picking up where we left off last week. Peter has asked Hannah Brown if she would say if he asked her back to the house. He can't believe she just thought he wanted to be the Bachelor instead of asking him to try again. Peter points out that Hannah said no to him, and he never said no to her. She is ugly crying and doesn't know what to do. Meanwhile, all the girls are growing bored making notes on their sordid dirty stories they are supposed to share. They are all wondering if he and Hannah are off somewhere. Peter and Hannah are boring me alread
