In Case You Don’t Win…

The books in the Bell Mountain series are the most exciting books I have read in my life! I highly recommend them for you to read!

If by some statistical misfortune you don’t win the comment contest, there’s always this.

For less money than you’d pay for an order of steamed pork dumplings at the Pink Lotus–and they’re very nice dumplings, I hasten to add–you can get a Kindle copy of my new Bell Mountain novel, The Temptation. And if you’re really feeling like a sport, you can get it in paperback.

What would happen if all thousand of this blog’s subscribers bought the book, all at once?

Well, I would run outside and do a cartwheel, at risk of splitting my pants, my publishers would jump for joy, and leftids would feel downhearted. And a thousand people would have a nice book to read.

So much for the commercial.

Comment Contest: Unbearable Excitement

Come on, everybody! Hop aboard the comment contest!

Byron the quokka is about ready to jump out of his skin with excitement. Well, he does take these things to heart. Ever since I made him in charge of the comment contest, he can hardly sit still.

There are a mere 127 comments left to go before someone posts No. 44,000 and wins the contest–and an autographed copy of The Temptation. Byron keeps checking because he wants to make the announcement. Unfortunately, the bicycle he wanted to give away as a prize belonged to someone else who has since gone home with it.

Everyone can play and all comments are eligible, with only these exceptions: comments abusive of anybody on this site; comments containing blasphemy or f-bombs; commercials disguised as comments; and, of course, comments too blindingly stupid to be published. Other than that, anything goes!

Comment Contest: Less than 500 to Go

Hopefully this will bring more comments to the contest!

Byron the Quokka is concerned that the comments aren’t coming in as fast as he anticipated. So he has decided to up the ante.

Now the prize will be that wonderful bicycle you see in the picture behind him. I don’t know how a quokka goes about obtaining a bicycle. I don’t see how Byron’s feet can reach the pedals.

But whoever posts Comment No. 44,000 will win either an autographed copy of my new book, The Temptation, or that really nifty bike that somehow fell into Byron the Quokka’s opportunistic little paws. “The wheels actually turn!” he claims. We currently have 43,539 comments, so that leaves a mere 461 to go.

So come on, out there–think of something witty, pithy, or unforgettable to say and post it as a comment!

Just hurry up and do it before whoever that bike really belongs to shows up and takes it…

By Request, ‘I am the God that Healeth Thee’

Amen!

Lee Duigon

Requested by Erlene–I am the God that Healeth Thee, by Don Moen.

We cannot count the people who were healed by Our Savior Jesus Christ, healed of every conceivable disease, while He was present in the flesh, on earth: and those healings were the evidence that God Himself had sent Him. They bore witness that He was the Son of God.

God has promised that when He restores His creation, in the fullness of time, sin and death will be cast out. There will be no need for any more healings, because we will all be whole, forever.

But in the meantime, all healing still comes from Him and we are instructed to pray for our loved ones, or for ourselves, when we need healing. God knows that we are weak; but He is strong. We pray in hope.

‘The Temptation’ Update

Right now I’m reading The Temptation by Lee Duigon!

Lee Duigon

Bell Mountain No. 11, The Temptation, is now available from amazon.com in paperback as well as Kindle. It looks like no one’s bought it yet, so one of you can make literary history by being the first to order it. The book is also waiting (if I may use a personification) for its first customer review.

Meanwhile, I have received the first little whisper of a Book No. 13–just the tiniest of hints, I don’t have a title. But it’s a good, solid hint–thank you, Lord.

But for the time being, The Temptation is where it’s at. If you want to catch up with Jack and Ellayne, Wytt and Martis, Lord Orth, Ysbott the Snake, and all the rest of the characters–and believe me, they’ve all been quite busy, hair-raising adventures and all that–the best way to do it is to read the book!

Mary Magdalene, on Easter Morning

From Lee Duigon’s blog. Something very important to think about all year round.

Lee Duigon

Try to imagine that morning.

The Passover is finished. It’s the day after the Sabbath, very, very early in the morning. Jerusalem is quiet, seeming almost eerily quiet after all the recent uproar.

Mary, from the town of Magdala, has followed Jesus Christ everywhere. She has seen him crucified, taken down, dead, from the cross, and placed in a tomb. She is numb with grief. Almost automatically, she proceeds to the tomb–donated by Joseph of Arimathea–to minister to Jesus’ body. That work could not have been done yesterday, on the Sabbath. There are wounds to wash, spices to apply.The Bible says two other women came with her to do this.

Try to imagine this: the Sanhedrin put a guard at the tomb, claiming they didn’t want Jesus’ followers to steal the body and then claim He was risen. But when Mary and the others arrive, in the grey dawn, the…

An Easter Prayer

Christ the Lord rose from the dead three days after He died on the cross for the sins of His chosen people. This is a prayer by Lee Duigon for this Easter Sunday.

This is Christ Pantokrator, “Christ the Ruler of All,” as portrayed in an ancient church in Sicily. Today on Easter Sunday we celebrate His resurrection from the dead.

Or Lord our God, and Father of All: grant this Easter day of 2019 power to work all throughout the year, every day, to draw our hearts to Jesus Christ–by whose blood we are saved, by whose wounds we are healed; Jesus Christ, our rightful King and only Savior.

Do as thou has said, O Lord! Make His enemies His footstool, put all things under Him, make all things new and wash away all tears: we pray for the restitution of all things, under the Lordship of Jesus Christ the King of kings. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
