First and foremost, thank you to all who have read my past blog posts and my book, “Homey’s Adventures.”
As promised, I am writing this book as a sequel to the happy ending of my first book. I just started writing this book, but publishers frequently give the reader a taste of the coming book by including the first two chapters. So, without delay here is the prologue of my third book:
Honor Thy Father – A Homey’s Adventures– Prologue
At the end of my first book, we left Homey and Jim in the embraces of Andy the Colombian beauty. Andy is also the name of my father and brother. I try to always be honest with my reader and I want to tell you that I changed the ending of my first book because I had this third book rattling around in my head. It is not that anything is wrong with Andy. On the contrary, she is nearly perfect. I still occasionally talk to her on the Colombian website. She is one of the most beautiful and sweetest people that I have ever encountered.
This book is less about Homey’s desires and more about Jim’s desires to be closer to the father, the son, and the holy spirit. This 3-book series is about love and all kinds of love. In my mind, they all tie together, and I believed inspired by my love of God. I believe that honoring my father helps me get closer to God who is the everyone’s father.
In my second book, Homey’s Adventures Too, I started talking to Xena after I was robbed near St. Andrews church in Kiev. I do not believe in coincidence. I believe that these 3 books all fit together. The common themes are love, God, and my father Andrew.
The Bible is very clear as to what our purpose in life should be. Men in both the Old and New Testaments sought for and discovered life’s purpose. Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived, discovered the futility of life when it is lived only for this world. He gives these concluding remarks in the book of Ecclesiastes: “Here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil” (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14). Solomon says that life is all about honoring God with our thoughts and lives and thus keeping His commandments, for one day we will stand before Him in judgment. Part of our purpose in life is to fear God and obey Him.
There is no doubt in my mind that Solomon had his spiritual side (like my Jim) and his horny old man side (like my Homey). Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubines. God gave Solomon more wisdom than any other men. I do question the wisdom of having 700 wives.
Honor thy Father and Mother is God’s 5th commandment. I, Homey and Jim are like a butterfly drawn to a flower when it come to this topic. This book is my one of my flowers.
