This is my novel synopsis. Tell me what you think.

Okay, this isn't exactly a spiritual topic, but I want to know if this would spark your attention and if you would read it. lol Just so you know. I detest writing a synopsis and I do it dreadfully. There is something about summing it up that I can't do properly.

Augussria: The Yet Unnamed Novel (EPIC I KNOW!!!! lol)
Elaine Keller was a flaw in her perfect family. The only comfort she found was in her brother. But after his death, she had no one. Scorned by the only family she had left she made her home on the streets.

When her country is attacked by pirates and her only friend is kidnapped, Elaine boards a warship and embarks on an adventure that will change her life. She finds herself fighting and taking risks, something her quiet life had never demanded. Can she overcome her fears and the horrors of her past? Will she be the one to stop the villain and reveal long buried secrets of history? Will she be the one to defeat the love of power with the power of love?

Really awesome poem one of my forum friends wrote!

Don't Tread On Me
By Alex Philip Lain

I’ll pay my own Healthcare, I’ll have my own guns,
I’ll drive my own truck, I’ll teach my own sons.
So hands off my life, ‘cause I like to be free,
And Mr. don’t you ever, tread on me!

You promise greater social safety, if guns are controlled,
Well, I agree, which is why I always employ a firm hold.
You see, what you’re saying is offending my sensibility,
So Mr. you just scram, you’re treading on me!

Don’t tread on me!
‘cause I’ll have my liberty!
The Founding Father’s said I have the right to be free!
So don’t you ever, tread on me!

Now what about this business with government spending?
Well you’ll pardon me but I find it to be rather offending.
I earn my own money, proud and free,
So hands out of my pockets, your treading on me!

What about welfare, you say, feeding the poor?
Well if a man gets his food free, he won’t work anymore.
You see, that is a job for the church, not for federal EBT,
So get your nose out of it, your treading on me!

Don’t tread on me!
‘Cause I will stand up to be free!
The Constitution assures me liberty!
So don’t you dare, tread on me!

Now back to guns and ammo, I think there is something you should know,
I’ll have as many and as much of both as possible, but no worries, I’ll spend my own dough.
I don’t care if you don’t like it, because to be armed is to be free!
So hands off my gun rights, you’re treading on me!

So hands out of my pockets, hands out of my rights,
Hands out of my business, hands off of my life!
I will maintain my rights, I will be free,
So Mr. you had better stop, treading on me!

Don’t tread on me!
I love my country, and love to be free!
What could be better than Godly liberty?
I would have it, so never tread on me!

So what things can the government do?
What is allowed that is honest and true?
What programs can there be,
That are constitutional, and don’t tread on me?

How about the establishment of justice, or the promotion of common welfare?
Providing for the common defense? This would all be fair.
How about securing the blessings of liberty, or insuring domestic tranquility?
Those are all right and good, but one ounce more and you’ll be treading on me.

So never tread on me!
I’ll have my liberty!
I’ve been given the right to be free!
So never tread on me!

Chew Your Cud!

I read something interesting today and I'm going to share it with you. About a cow chewing it's cud. Did you know a cow has 7 stomachs?

7 Stomachs???

And when they eat, they chew, then swallow.....then....*gag*...bring it back up, chew, swallow, bring back, chew, swallow, bring back, chew, swallow, bring back.....repeat this several times then it finally nourishes then.

Ew! Sick as it is we have an important lesson to learn from the cow. We need to be like that with the word of God. After reading a scripture we need to keep meditating on it...bringing it to our minds and remembering it, applying it to our lives. What good is it if we read a scripture/sermon and then forget it in no time?

Psalms 119:15 "I meditate on your precepts and consider your ways."

Chew your Cud!
