This web site will reveal some of the chapters of my life at the
time when I was going through the wilderness with a new chapter
every week. I'll also post some children's stories that I have
written as well as some other articles. The sole purpose of this
web site is to be a blessing to you.
are some of the "highlights"
(if you can call
them that) of the 24 year saga of my time on the Potter's wheel, hereafter referred to as the "wheel" and equivalent to a
root canal without anesthetic or perhaps having quintuplets by
that wonderfully (sadistic) "natural " childbirth experience. I'm
sure we could all write a book by now. That time or place in your
life where God gives you an attitude adjustment and your faith is
really tested. I didn't think I
needed any adjusting, but one of us had to be wrong, and God
picked me. I still haven't figured out why.............
Everyone I knew thought they were perfect and went into
ecstasy when I started spinning around ("It's about time she got
it! She must have done some heavy duty sinning!") I can't speak for my husband (and I won't let him
speak for me or the list would go on for ever) but I can tell you
some of the wrong things I did (it took me 24 years on the "wheel"
to learn to say "I was wrong"), and some of the lessons I learned.
This was an extremely painful time in my life but
something good came out of it (I learned how to cook cheap
hamburger at least a thousand ways, and eat it without gagging). I
had no intention of writing a book (this is my first). I was just
going to make a list of a couple of tips for my daughter, drawn
from my own experiences, to help her through the fiery furnace
faster and with less pain than I
had (maybe that's impossible). Anyways, that's when the Lord
spoke the word "Fireproofing" to me (hence the title)
and as I
started writing the list down, he started giving me recall
that I'd tried so hard to forget!) and with a little humor, no
less. So I'm passing them on. Hope they will be helpful. If not,
maybe worth a chuckle. I believe this is of the Lord, for
This book is not meant to be a new Theological discovery, nor am I
called to be a Preacher. It is simply meant to be a
tongue-in-cheek account of the experiences we went through from my
point of view. I was unable to tell you all the juicy parts
for my own safety.....Even if I changed their names they'd do me
in....It's too horrible to mention anyway. I want you to
smile not faint. The chapters are short because you need to
be spending your time in the Word of God, The Bible. Anyway,
who feels like reading, "War and Peace" when you're taking a spin
on the "wheel", or enjoying a bask in the fiery furnace? So,
kick back, put on a happy face, (if you don't
have one, borrow someone else's) toss your cares at
Jesus feet and dance a jig on the devils face with football shoes
on! HAH! TAKE THAT DEVIL! Remember, I cried my way through this so
someone may as well enjoy my suffering besides old slew foot.
And best of all, we can see the light at the end of the tunnel!
So will you....... THANK YOU, JESUS!!!
