Thoughts from Beyond the Rim...

"The meanderings of a heart and mind searching for faith and truth in a lying world"

"...the spirit of wickedness in high places is now so powerful and many-headed in its incarnations that there seems nothing more to do than personally refuse to worship any of the hydras' heads." - J.R.R. Tolkien

My ruminations 
You have found my little corner of the web. I am a writer, making my living with technical writing and online information systems, but I also write creatively and to facilitate my and others religious journey. You are welcome to explore my online domicile, to read, and if you desire, comment, either using my blog site (Beyond The Rim...) or by emailing me.

Our Daily Prayer
Dear Lord, so far today, I am doing all right. I have not gossiped, lost my temper, been greedy, grumpy, nasty, selfish, or overindulgent. However, I am going to get out of bed in a few minutes, and I will need a lot more help after that. Amen. (source unknown)

May God grant you grace and peace as you go about your day.

My first novel, Beginnings: Book One of the Lawgiver Chronicles is now available for purchase on Amazon in both print and Kindle. This link allows you to preview the book.

Book CoverThe year is 1292 B.C. and Egypt has almost recovered from more than a generation of turmoil. Begun by the “Pharaoh who is not named,” the nation was plunged into social and religious chaos by a leader who overthrew the historic gods of the Two Lands in his desire to follow a single supreme and all-powerful deity, which he named Aten.

The powerful priesthood of Amun-Ra blamed and sought destruction of the Hebrews for corrupting the forgotten pharaoh with their heretical religious ideas. However, they sought to accomplish their annihilation in a way that would not destroy the economy of Egypt since the Two Lands had become dependent on Hebrew labor. By killing all newborn males, the blight would gradually be removed from the land within one generation.

Now, during the fourth year of a fledgling dynasty, a new threat is taken from the waters of the Nile by the sister of Pharaoh: a Hebrew child who should rightfully be put death as an offering to Sobek, the crocodile-headed god. However, the princess is childless and abundant signs and portents signal the gods have an opinion in the matter.

Let the Saga begin.

Weblog/Blogging efforts
- For my current and past musings check out my blog, Beyond the Rim... For those of you unfamiliar with blogs, they are basically postings that take the form of a journal, but on the web. Updating a blog is called "blogging" and the person who writes the blog is called a "blogger." Most blogs are updated daily. The postings on a blog are generally arranged in chronological order with the current entries at the top of the blog's home page. It takes discipline to write a blog and keep it even reasonably current. That is the reason I am blogging; I want that kind of discipline.

Quotes of Note
-  "Any loss, especially when deep, opens the heart to the memory of loss itself. Our greatest loss has always been eternal, our natural born separation from God. Even becoming a born again Christian does not remove the deep memory of that loss." - William Meisheid
