Publisher's notes --- Mar 2000
I had a God-experience this morning while I was finishing up the
final touches for this month's edition of Next-Wave. I was editing
and reading Leslie Ramusack's article, Real
Life @ 2318 N. High St., when I got the unmistakable feeling I
identify as God speaking.
You may not understand what I am about to say unless you read
Leslie's article, but for the last six months I have been having a
difficult time as the "pages of my life" have been
"downloading". My wife and I have separated and our
marriage appears to be irretrievably broken. I can tell you
first-hand that mid-life crises are no fun. But, I can tell you
with hope and faith, that they are survivable.
So, what does this have to do
with Next-Wave? And what did God say to me this morning? He
whispered gently, Charlie, isn't it fun to be part of what I am
doing in the world today? Isn't it great that all of these
excellent writers are sharing the thoughts that I have inspired
them with? And then He said, and I am right here beside you....
The tears that filled my eyes and
the emotions that flooded my soul, prompted my silent whisper,
Thank you Lord.
