I figure I’d show you all a gallery of images of the books I’m selling to raise money for the two charities I’ve mentioned previously here. They all will be up for bids at Chippy’s Auctions.
If you have any questions about any of the books, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with me! Until next post, take care!

I would like to wish all of my readers here a very happy Easter! May the joy of the Lord be with you and your loved ones today! Please remember that Jesus is the reason for the season!
I’m pleased to announce that Chippy’s Auctions is now open for registration, and that my first item, The Reader’s Digest Keyboard Course is now available to be bid upon. Here’s an image of it:
It is available to be bid upon for the next 4 weeks and 1 day from today. I will be adding more of the books I am selling to the site later on today, so keep an eye out on the site!
Please remember that I am giving away the money I make on these items to two charities: the CNIB and the local St. Mary’s Hospital. Also 10% of all money made by my company during the rest of April and the month of May will be donated to the Canadian Red Cross.
I got to leave for work soon, so until the next time I write, take care!;)

In this episode, I read the Easter story from the book of Matthew in the NIV Study Bible and share some good news with my listeners.

I am pleased to announce that Chippy’s Auctions is now live! You can now list your items for sale there, and pay the site fees by either Paypal or Skrill (formerly Moneybookers), and I am hoping to add both Payza and Bitpay as payment options in the near future.
I was going to list a few of the books I am planning on selling there last night, but I was unable to select a category for them (nothing came up when I clicked on the -Select- link), so I have filed a bug report with PHP Pro Software, the makers behind the script to see if they can help me out. Let me know if you run into the same issue, so that I can see if it’s an isolated incident or not.
Oh and the Lord told me yesterday while I was working that I no longer have to fear anything or worry as he brought to my mind 2 Timothy 1:7:
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
He also reminded me that He’s now walking beside me every step of life I take from now on. I know my Lord and Saviour won’t let me fall, and I’m determined every day to live my life the way Christ would want me to.
Now I have a poll for my readers of my fan fiction to answer:
If “Work on one of the rewrites” or “Start a new story” wins the poll, I will put up a new poll to decide which story gets rewritten or in which category you want my new story to come from.
Until next time, take care and God bless!

Anger is like a fire – a good servant when managed, but a remorseless destroyer of anything in it’s path when it’s the master.
When I was at work today, the Lord brought me that analogy, and told me that I need to work on my control of my anger and my temper. Right now, when I get mad, I lose control and become like the destroying fire, instead of controlling it and using it like a fire in a forge. Christ Himself experienced the emotion as well, but His anger was always controlled and righteous. It was always against something which wasn’t in accordance to the will and laws of God.
He also showed me that I need to rewrite my stories where I lemons in them and not write stories with more than one woman for each man, so I’ve edited the first chapter of “Guardian of the Indigo Plateau”, as well as changing the pairing for “Guardian Prince of Aura” to just Ash and Elesa. I’ve also pulled the following stories until I can rewrite them (unless I marked it as deleted):
I’ve decided to do something with Lance (who Ash will see as a very good friend) for “A Conference and A Double Wedding” instead of deleting it, as I have no lemons in the story to date. I can use it as a moral lesson why sex is a bad idea before marriage!

I’m pleased to say that Chippy’s Auctions is coming soon! I’ve got the script installed, and now it’s just a matter of me getting everything set up, so expect an announcement that it’s open by this weekend! Please remember that when I open this site for my company, ten percent of all money made will be donated to a charity of our choice each month!
When it opens, I’m planning on selling some books for two worthy charities – the local St. Mary’s Hospital and the CNIB. I want to support both because I believe in the local hospital and want to help it improve, and I suffer from keratoconus, which slowly destroyed my distance and reading vision. Thanks to a recent cornea transplant in my left eye and a future one in the right eye, I have been given my sight back. This wouldn’t have been possible without research which the CNIB helps fund. I will donate all proceeds (50% of the cash to each one) after I pay my company’s fees.
Also I have another reason for wanting to donate to charity: Yesterday, I re-accepted Christ as my Lord and Saviour, and I know want to live a life that is worthy of Him and gives Him praise. I have made some major changes to my life so far and they include:
I really want to live a life that pleases my Saviour, and that includes being obedient to those He has put in positions of authority of me – at my employer, in my city, my province, and my country. Clearly though if they ask me to do something with goes against what He has said in His word, I will not obey that order or law.
Got to go read some more, so take care until next time! May God bless your life!
