What’s a guy to do when he’s between careers?

Have you ever had a time in your life when you’re in between careers? I don’t mean in between jobs, those are too frequent, I’m talking a foot in two different fields practically unrelated.

I can tell you from personal experience that it ain’t pretty. It’s draining. It’s mind numbing. It’s sleep depriving. And if I didn’t know I was on the winning side I’d probably explode.

There have been occasions when I’ve delivered books to stores or warehouses, so the two careers do temporarily coincide. But, since I’m not delivering MY books they don’t really join forces in a way I need them to–or, should I say, how I’d like to see them do.

I would have been disappointed if the lives of me and my illustrator didn’t get hectic and/or chaotic by now. The app we’re working on is going to introduce so many people to Jesus in such a fun way lives are going to be changed for eternity. So, spiritual warfare is inevitable.

I can’t go into detail, but through a strange series of events I’m currently unemployed with a strong chance of getting my job back this week. Sometimes working for a large company just makes me shake my head, and laugh, and cry, at the same time.

From about a thousand miles away I broke Dyann’s computer. I’m pretty sure I warned her I have that influence on electrical thinking machines. If I didn’t she knows now.

Apparently the paintings she’s working on for this are so high-resolution they’re eating up a lot of computer space. She emailed me Saturday in a panic because she needs a new tower to handle the overload on her old computer.

The good news is I now have her locked in on our next app. Yeah, I already have the follow-up app written. I realized that since there’s no Bible story category for apps at this point I would have a better chance of getting it made if I convince Apple I have more than one ready.

About a month ago the words came to me for Jesus Christ was a Man Who Also is God. It took a few days writing between deliveries to complete it, but I like the way it came out. There isn’t as much humor in it as Noah’s story with animals, but there is some.

I had to re-order my microphones from the river people. I never got a notice in my mailbox they came this time. I checked on a hunch at the office Saturday afternoon. There was my package with everything I ordered. Now I’m wondering if I got the first box I ordered or the second one. Time will tell.

I’ve never watched a movie three times in one day before Sunday. One of my friends from church thought I’d like to watch Miss Potter. It’s the story of Beatrix Potter–think Peter Rabbit and other such books. He obviously was right. Thanks Howard.

Beatrix was quite the woman. Oh yeah, I got choked up when they showed her seeing her first book on display in a bookstore window, all three times. My writing friends will understand why.

There’s a glimpse of my upside-down life. If I pulled the curtain all the way back you’d explode. So I’ll let you get back to your boring life while I attempt to put mine back together and right-side up with a lot of Spiritual assistance.

Keep smiling.   Wade


I’m a truck driver turned writer. My writing drives people to Jesus.
I love sunsets/sunrises, dark chocolate, coffee, cats and dogs (as long as their owners pick up after them) and solitude. My relationship with God through Jesus Christ is most important to me, not a religion. This writing gig is all God’s idea. I only wish to bring more attention to Jesus with it.
