Yesterday was a beautiful Saturday for me and today is a wonderful Sunday.
Saturday morning I set out to get a children's Bible that the one year old daughter of my neighbour insisted that she wanted when the one belonging to another neighbour's child was taken from her. I gave her other publications, but she rejected them and insisted on having the children's Bible. Janet is really a special child of a faithful Christian couple and even as little as she is, she makes sure that she stops at my office to greet me whenever she is passing by with her young parents. And Janet already knows how to bow to greet elders at one year old! So, I made sure I got her the children's Bible and her parents were really glad and grateful. The fully illustrated colourful hardcover children's Bible is exactly the same kind she wanted too. It was not cheap, but Janet deserves the gift that I know she will treasure for long.
Afterwards, I returned to my office to update my popular news and entertainment blogs and work on the book cover design for one of my new books, The Prophet Lied. Then I stumbled upon Derek Murphy of http://bookcovers.creativindie.com who has done some fantastic book covers for successful authors including Joanna Penn, author of the bestselling action-adventure thriller novels Pentecost and Prophecy in the ARKANE series. And Derek has just offered to do the book cover of The Prophet Lied FREE!
For Pentecost, my first novel, I wanted to rank as an Amazon bestseller and make more than a standard advance for a first novel (around $5,000 USD). I achieved both of those goals within six months of publishing. If you don’t know your goals, how will you be able to tell whether you are successful? So that’s my advice; work out what you want and then you have something to aim for.

I am so glad and grateful to God for answering my prayers to send me divine helpers and He has always done so and in most cases JEHOVAH God uses complete strangers I have never known or met before to help me.
WOW! Great is His faithfulness, loving kindnesses, goodness, mercies, awesome favours and miracles in my life. Please, join me to give Him praise. Will someone join me to shout Hallelujah!
7 You love righteousness and hate wickedness;
therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions
by anointing you with the oil of joy.8 All your robes are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
from palaces adorned with ivory
the music of the strings makes you glad.9 Daughters of kings are among your honored women;
at your right hand is the royal bride in gold of Ophir.
~ From Psalm 45.
7 Then I said, “Here I am, I have come—
it is written about me in the scroll.
8 I desire to do your will, my God;
your law is within my heart.
~ Psalm 40:7-8.
