Editing a Book

10/14/2018:  I am finishing editing a book I started several years ago; “Things My Fathers Have Told Me”.  I have two fathers; one natural and one supernatural, my Heavenly Father.  My motive for writing this was to be able to share my lessons in life with my children and grandchildren.  It is in a sense, my spiritual autobiography.  I am really enjoying this venture.

This is a good one from my Heavenly Father.

CHRISTIANTIY is based upon

CHRIST’S PERFECTION, and

HIS FORGIVING NATURE and our willingness to receive both.

Here are a couple of my father’s sayings.  He called my Lan.

“Lan, The first liar never has a chance”.   I do not think this requires an explanation.  He often referred to this about fishermen, who tell stories (lies) about how big a fish they caught or the one that got away.  Once the size is established, the next story teller knows the bench mark to be exceeded.

“Lan, Poor people never go bankrupt.”  This was to say that poor people could not borrow, go greatly in debt and therefore could not go bankrupt.  The poor might be broke or live pay check to pay check, but never have a large debt they could not cover.  The implication was also not to borrow great sums of money.
