Okay, I’ve sent the manuscript and cover to the publisher, and now I’m waiting for the proof copy of the book. I’ve already looked at the PDF proof, but a printed version is necessary to really know how it turns out. Once it arrives and I give it a good check, I’ll make “The GlymyreScape Player’s Manual” available for purchase. Years ago (when we were playing this game from scribbled notes in a binder), I never thought it would turn into a book as polished as this. Heh, the advice I got from a gaming (and comic book) shop, was to make it as detailed as possible. Well, at 290 pages, I’d say it was detailed well enough. Still, it’s only the basic guidelines for “GlymyreScape”, and there’s quite a bit more to put in my next volume, “The GlymyreScape Game Master’s Guide”. Here’s hoping it takes less time to write, but for now I’ll take a short break and maybe do a few pages of “Glymyre Tales”. I haven’t forgotten you, my readers. And thanks for visitin’. Hey, leave a comment or two. I like hearing from you.

“Guard your heart…for it determines the course of your life.” Pr 4:23 NLT When Satan sets out to destroy you, he starts by planting wrong thoughts in your mind. Jesus illustrated this when He said, “The law of Moses said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say: Anyone who even looks at a woman with lust in his eye has already committed adultery with her in his heart” (Mt 5:27-28 TLB). Before you surrender to sin in reality, you entertain it as fantasy. Evil thoughts aren’t really yours until you allow them to “move in and rearrange the furniture.” Left unchecked to ramble through your mind, a thought can attach itself to an incident in your past or a proclivity in your present and feed on it until it’s like a tumor growing inside you. Paul warns, “Take captive every thought…make it obedient to Christ” (2Co 10:5 NIV). And Solomon writes, “Guard your heart…for it determines the course of your life.” Don’t give wrong thoughts an inch or they will take a mile. Evict them before they weaken your commitment to Christ and leave you in the place of regret . Generally speaking, when we clean house we focus on what others can see and inspect. Imagine how much mental junk we collect because we think nobody sits in our heads examining our thoughts. But God does! David said, “Lord…you know all about me” (Ps 139:1 CEV). Knowing that should lead you to pray: “Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord” (Ps 19:14).

A very thought provoking post, Jim! Physical beauty seems to be such a subjective subject these days. On the other hand, the moral compass of America has taken such a beating, I’m not sure secular society fully understands what ‘good works’ are either…
