Don’t Waste Your Sorrows

Don't Waste Your SorrowsHere are some quotes from one of my favorite books “Don’t Waste Your Sorrows” by Paul Billheimer. This is a theology of suffering that every believer should read.

Not understanding God’s benevolent purpose, when sorrow and suffering come—whether as the result of conflict over moral choices, of pain and physical illness, or of disappointing circumstances—it is easy to fall into a spirit of resentment and self-pity which produces frustration and depression. When this occurs, one is defeated in his spiritual life, and character deteriorates. He has wasted his sorrow. What God permitted in order to wean him from self-love and self-worship, and therefore for his spiritual growth, has resulted in loss.

There is no way that Christlike character can be formed in man without suffering because he cannot be decentralized otherwise. If he will not suffer, if he determines to evade it, if he refuses to allow the life of nature and of self to go to the cross, to that extent he will remain hard, self-centered, unbroken, and therefore unChristlike.

In order to grow in character, it is necessary to understand that nothing that God permits to come to His child, whether “good” or “ill,” is accidental or without design. Everything is intended to drive him out of himself into God.

God cannot train one without mystifying him, without baffling him. Evidently God has objectives in us which cannot be achieved apart from frustration and bewildering pain.

Escape between the pages… Oris George

Along the Back Roads of YesterdayWhen I first met Oris, he was looking for a writer’s group to discuss publication, editing and defining his book. He’d already written it.

Inside the pages he’d written were roosters that smoked stogies, donkeys that nipped at the vine, and goats with top hats and tails. His characters brought life to the stories he told of yester-year, and then there was Anna who gave it all for the teams of mules and horses she dedicated her life to saving. Who could forget the blue calico bonnet so representative of Anna, sitting by the well?

Oris George is 80.

A man so bold as to ride in the rose bowl parade with his mules, so daunting as to travel the world degree in hand fulfilling his dreams, and return spirited enough to write the stories of his youth and market them on his own. His efforts carry over into the thrill he offers those both young and old who know him, greeted by a kindly slap upside the head, a handshake, or a tender hug. This man wages war on new fangled frivolity and declares the good times of days gone by in the same pages.

Oris George dares to live… again and again between the pages along the back roads.

Oris GeorgeWith a down-home drawl and gentle humor, Oris George transports the reader back in time Along the Back Roads of Yesterday, a new collection of tales drawn from his memories of growing up in the 30’s and 40’s. Suzanne Steil Retired Educator If you weren’t a farm kid in the 1940’s and 50’s, it is not too late to correct your education, and this is just the book that can do it. Follow Oris George and his contentious friend, Henry, as they journey through life in a world where the chores are as endless as the summers, the odor of fresh baked pies sweetens the air, and a smile from a teenage carhop can lead to serious heart palpitations. Ava Betz Prowers County Historian Oris George has a deft hand for capturing his characters so clearly you’ll feel you knew them for some time. Some stories will make you laugh and others may make you cry, but all of them will make you think and feel and you can’t ask for more than that from any author.

Did you ever wonder what ole mule writers do on Saturday night?

Sleep, silly! Of course, we sleep. We have to get up on Sunday morning and go to Sunday meeting.

Along the Back Roads of YesterdayThat’s the kind of thing you learn on a site where the every day events take center stage. You learn about the every day events of life, nostalgia they call it these days, that keep people out there being people.

you might find out what I had for dinner, or how to cook it. Or you might find that I know how to sew and weave, and write a book. You might even find out that Elmer Coyote has fleas and we don’t let him come around the house now because he might bring the plague up from the river bottom. Or I might even share that some folks believe cut onions left on saucers around your home gather up germs and save folks from the ravages of the plague, when nothing else worked. Because I lived a long time, and I know things like that…

That’s the kind of think ole mule writers write about…

What about you? What kinds of things do you like to think about?

and life comes back

and life comes backThe saga of death takes a toll on any relationship. No matter how firm a foundation you stand on, together, when one fades from life, the other must go on living.

The story that unfolds when one young mother becomes a widow three days before Christmas will scar your heart forever. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll die a little and then life comes back… slowly.

Ever so slowly the panic attacks will subside and each day, every single 24 hour period that passes, you’ll realize… it’s only a day. Life will come back and you’ll be complete. Not that you won’t always have a hole in your heart, a space where love leaks out, or a tiny spot that always and forever aches for that one person who is no longer part of your life, you will. But life, the living moment of existence sparked with joy that once held you captive will come back and the moment will surprise you. It will delight you. It will overcome you and you will know that your bright light is shining again…

So the story goes –

A young widow, madly in love with her husband, holds him in her arms as he takes his dying breath. This moment captures her, yet she fights her way to freedom, unapologetic asking questions, questioning God, and struggling to reclaim the portion of herself that commands each breath of life to be taken, even through the pain of losing the love of her life. She tells her story of reclaiming life in fresh, revealing quips and stories that allow the reader inside the secret world of pain, agony and desperation that she feels and shares best in her story.

From a parenting moment shared with her husband to the delicate story of his death and those moments after when she struggled back from the edge, the emotional pilgrimage in these pages will captivate your heart, bring tears to your eyes and encourage you to go one step further and care with all that is inside you. A non-fiction, reality brings you in so close you can taste the tears…

Doug Simpson Presents “The Soul of Jesus”

The Soul of JesusAs part of His preparations for the long-prophesied birth of our Savior, God selected a devout group of primarily Jewish Essene to oversee this monumental undertaking. The Soul of Jesus delves into numerous details surrounding these readily-available but little-known preparations which preceded the birth of Jesus, and then carries on to share delightful snippets concerning the birth and life of Jesus before the commencing of His Ministry, Jesus’ Healing and other Miracles, His Apostles, relatives, friends and the group of seventy disciples, the Crucifixion and Resurrection, His activities after the Resurrection, and Jesus’ Ascension, that are not recorded in the Scriptures.

The surprises do not stop there. The Soul of Jesus saves the block-buster news until the very end.

About Doug Simpson

Doug SimpsonAn author, Doug describes himself as curious. He knows there’s more going on in the world than meets the eye, and he’s determined to find it. Can you blame him? With a world to research, and all of history written in the memes of authors the world over, there must yet be more to reveal. Simpson says, “Rejections and criticism create opportunities for improvement. Never give up on your dream.” 

Simpson writes when inspired, because, “It does not make sense to me to write if one is not motivated, so I wait for motivation to resurface.” Which might explain why he waited until he was 65 to write his first book, or it might simply be that the first book he wrote required a lifetime of research.

Whatever the reason – as a refreshing read – revealing the good nature of all that is important, The Soul of Jesus offers insight and thought. Perhaps you’ll find something of value inside these pages. Please do visit Doug Simpson on Facebook, or on his Blog.
