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!

On this week’s podcast, I talk about Swagnilla Ice, my websites, and some other stuff I have to tell you.

I’ve read a lot of great fan fiction lately in my three favorite categories (Pokemon, Stargate SG-1, and Percy Jackson and the Olympians), so I thought I would share a few of my favorites here today, and maybe you’ll enjoy them as well. Stories are varied in rating from Fiction K+ to Fiction M.
Author: pokedawnheart Category: Pokemon
Summary: Set during and after ‘For Ho-Oh the Bells Toll’. After Suicune decided to go with Ash and his friends, how will Ash change? How will Ash react when things start to go really weird for him and his friends? And just what is Ash’s destiny that Suicune speaks of? Pokeshipping. From late Johto to Unova.
Story: The Wanderer
Author: xoxOVERLORDxox Category: Pokemon
Summary: AU. Instead of receiving a Pikachu as his starter, Ash Ketchum is only given an empty pokeball and a sheepish grin from Professor Oak. Anger and spite clouding his soul, he sets out only to find a ray of hope in the form of a small, injured Bagon. It’s funny how a tiny twist of fate can change one’s destiny forever. Dark, prodigy Ash – shipping included.
Story: Perseus Son of Chaos
Author: TC.ya27135 Category: Percy Jackson and the Olympians
Summary: After the Second Gigantomachy, Percy was betrayed, exiled and hunted. After losing one last friend who stood by him, he decided to end it all. Before that, he was visited by the creator himself and offered a deal. To go back to the past and bring down Olympus after defeating Kronos and Gaea once again. Only this time, he will be son of Chaos and champion of the primordial. Perlia!
Story: The Boy in Silver
Author: Anti-Social-Catterpillar Category: Percy Jackson and the Olympians
Summary: Artemis and the Hunters come across a child that was left in the woods beaten and bruised to die. They take him in and the boy finds a family among the man-hating hunters. Percy being raised in the Hunt, no pairings as of yet. I’m hoping to put my own sort of twist in this! Rated T for language and abuse in early chaps. First Fanfic. CHB will probably start around TTC.
Story: Ra’s Domain
Author: Nadie2 Category: Stargate SG-1
Summary: In this timeline there was never a rebellion in Egypt. Earth has always been under control of the Goa’uld. Women are property, and technology is limited. A resistance fighter, Jack O’Neill, buys a young scientist so she won’t suffer a worse fate. A young Samantha Carter is less than thrilled. Janet, Jacob, and Sha’re have their own stories to tell in this world.
I hope that you enjoy these fan fiction stories that I am following and enjoying. I should go and do some other stuff to get ready for work, so take care!

It’s under three days now until I can purchase a second VPS to run Chippy’s Auctions and IntimateClick on. On Friday, I go see my eye specialist in Edmonton for a one month post-op checkup, so I’m looking forward to that. After that, I’ll be seeing my specialist every three months for checkups. Of course, in about a year’s time, I go for my second cornea transplant for my right eye.
Tomorrow I have to wash my dishes, and clean my bathroom before I can do any writing. I would do some tonight, but I’m tired now and I don’t write that well when I’m tired. Tomorrow I’m going to try and complete the next chapter of “Soaring to Victory” so I can get it off to my Beta-reader and I can begin working on one of my other stories.
Speaking of my stories, I’m still looking for OCs (original characters) for many of my stories including the following:
I’ve also got plans for quite a few more stories, in fact my story projects file in Writer is now five or six pages long, each idea on it’s own line, with ideas taking up a maximum of four lines! Not all my ideas are for fan fiction stories, but they are my ideas and I will eventually turn them into stories one day sooner or later. (I think I’ll finish up a few of my current works-in-progress before I start any new stories!)
I should go rest my eyes now, so take care!
