I really don’t listen to 9 Inch Nails because I am quite guarded as to the lyrics I allow into my head and am picky about the style of music, etc. Anyway, we were flipping through channels and on Paladia they came on singing this song with the lyrics, “I am a copy of a copy of a copy…”. And nothing else about that song mattered because my mind was going off on a tangent, so off the TV went and here I am thinking it out. Are we just a copy of a copy of a copy? And I think the reality answer is both yes and no. Yes, we are genetic copies of our parents and yes, we all are copies of sorts of our forefathers through that chromosomal line of nuclear information. However, I and you are much much more than the sum of our parts. We are each unique in this way: God used the tools from your mother and father’s cells as the basis for forming us in the womb of our mother and then adds unique abilities and thought processing beginnings and specific gifts of spiritual and/or physical basis. He designs us each just exactly the way He thinks is best for us and His kingdom, where everyone harmoniously has their part to play and work to do for everything to work best. Every person is vital, every person is unique and no gift is unimportant or insignificant by any stretch of the imagination. This is why abortion is horrific, ending a life created not by a mistake or misdeed but on purpose for a purpose. And even if you had/have a “bad” parent on one side does not determine the “fate” or destiny of the child. Genes are building blocks but not the final story and certainly not stronger than the Holy Spirit’s work in the redeemed soul. Each gift is different and a person’s unique gift has absolutely nothing to do with what gift your parents received. We are each different. Even identical twins differ in their spiritual and sometimes physical gifts from God. There is no mistake or hopeless case and on the flip side there is no one person more important than anyone else. We are vastly important individually because of Who created us. We are also incredibly powerful because of His Spirit living inside us when we are saved. And not one single person is more important or more powerful than any other person because we are all made uniquely by God and He is the focus, He is the Creator God, the Great One. When He is lifted up, He is right where He should be and we are all lifted with Him because He is generous and loving. This is truth. End of story.
So, I have just published 2 new books on Kindle (which is also available on any computer via their free Kindle Cloud Reader- my commercial). I have worked very hard on these books, as most authors do. One book is on my trade- a conversational and humorous clarification of hearing loss and hearing aids and how to know what to do, how much they should be, how not to be conned and swindled, etc. It is written to be very helpful. That book is called Huh? or Hearing Utterances and Humor or Clarification of Hearing Loss and Hearing Aids or A Hearing Doctor Talks Shop. You can find it here: http://www.amazon.com/Hearing-Utterances-Clarifying-Doctor-ebook/dp/B00DKC23FU/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1373169686&sr=8-4&keywords=Huh%3F+Kindle
My second book is completely different. It is a novel. More poignantly, it is a sort of autobiography set in a fictional novel set in pre-Victorian England. It is rather a fantasy and coming-of-age book that has a moral, a point. It isn’t mindless blather, but it will entertain all the same. It is called Lady Sarah Preston.

Thank you so much for letting me tell you about my newly published works. I hope that one or both may be helpful to you. I believe God gives us knowledge of topics to help other people and get it out to others rather than selfishly keep it all to ourselves. I hope this information finds those to whom it will be a blessing! God bless us all!! 🙂
