Friday's Mad Mad World!


Greetings, precious warriors of the King!  Here's the latest and greatest shocking news.

Can I ask you a question? Is this Friday post beneficial to you? It takes me a couple hours to pull together, so I want to make sure it is useful. I could spend the time writing my novels, it that's more important to you all who follow me closely. Or I could just post on one or two items that drive me nuts!  Or I could post pictures of my reef aquarium or random thoughts or book news when I have it. If you don't mind taking the time to answer in the comments. I've been praying about continuing this and thought I'd ask you all.

  1. It's very informative, yet can be depressing at times. I'd love to see some beauty in the mix...share your aquarium, book news or just your thoughts. Don't completely do away with this information, because it is beneficial. Hope I've helped. Hugs! ❤

  4. I recommend that you focus on your books and then once every two or three weeks post something that you can hyper-focus on and scrutinize. Something that really grinds your gears.

  5. I find them informative and although they are sometimes overwhelming I am not fearful or depressed because we are watching prophecy fulfilled and this should give us hope of Christ returning soon. Plus I can follow the links and read for myself

  6. I look forward to them every Friday. You post stories that I have not read about. I do appreciate the work you do to pull this all together.

  7. It's interesting and unfortunately disheartening to read all of this news, but I appreciate you taking the time to post the items. I must admit here lately, I've been skimming the bad and scrolling to the good news. Not that the 'bad news' isn't important or relevant and I do thank you for mentioning it in a Christian perspective, but it just seems there is so much bad news EVERYWHERE, and the media derives pleasure in shocking us with graphic detail and refuse to be unbiased.

    Since it does take up so much of your time, maybe you could just post on one or two items that you feel led to share. I always enjoy an update on your reef aquarium, as well as family/grandbaby updates and random thoughts or book news.

    Whatever you decide I'll be checking your blog daily. Thank you for asking our input and hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  8. I agree with Amy M. All of the information you share is interesting but can be overwhelming at times.I too appreciate so much all of your effort to inform and reveal information we would not hear otherwise. But since you do spend a lot of time on it perhaps a little less would still be extremely helpful to keep us all alert and watching for the Lord's return. I am looking forward to your next books and will be continuing to read your blogs. Your gift of writing blesses me so much! Thank you for all you do.

  9. I enjoy hearing reports that the news seems to ignore in their political agenda rampages. Keep it up :)

  10. I look forward to this post each week. It is a strange place we are in when we see the reality of what God has told will happen before He returns actually unfolding before our eyes. It excites me, soon eternity, and scares me, as there are so many doomed for hell. I have been spurred to be more vocal to those who will listen about what I believe. thank you

  14. We read it every week. If it's not wearing you out, MaryLu, keep it up. Yes, so much of what's going on around us is depressing and discouraging, but being ignorant isn't the answer. Sadly, most news outlets don't share much about these issues. So very much to pray about.

  15. I agree with the commenter, Amy M. Maybe one or two items that really strike you and mix it up with book news and other news you want to share. I will still follow your blog whatever you end up doing :)

  16. I always enjoy your take on things. I just usually don't comment on it. Don't wear yourself out on it, but follow the Holy Spirit's prompting.
