Happy Fourth Friends and Family!


Happy Fourth Friends and Family! 

I always feel a little thrill over the words independence and freedom, because I know they’re more than nice-sounding words. In 1776, we Americans wanted freedom enough to fight and die for it. We didn’t want to be under England’s oppressive taxation or have rules imposed on us without our agreement or representation.
WOW! In some ways have we come under our own government’s oppression? Senselessly piling up debt upon us by foolish spending? Being tantalizingly close to repressing freedom of speech by telling us what “hate” words we can’t say???
Just a few thoughts. I like to be free.

On a personal note: Thanks to those who sent Anniversary wishes. We enjoyed special days in Spring Green, WI and Devil’s Lake hiking, biking and golfing. Great news. We both re-upped for another year.

I’m thrilled how graciously you’ve received my new mystery novel, Never Tomorrow, with amazing reviews and by telling your friends about it. I’m humbled. 

Two Timely Scriptures You May Wish To  Ponder:
“Therefore the law is slackened and justice and a righteous sentence never go forth for the wicked surrounds the righteous; therefore justice goes forth perverted.” From Habakkuk 1:4 Old Testament Book of the Bible Written between 612 B.C. and 585 B.C.

“For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.” Galatians 5:1

I’m looking forward being at the Lake Geneva Authorfest next weekend at Library Park, Lake Geneva (along the lake path – one of my favorite places in the whole world) from 10-4. It’s always fun to meet other authors and readers.
