Recovering from complete knee replacement has become longer and more difficult than expected. I find working at the computer AND being able to concentrate a rough combination. However, my brain keeps working, and I have four chapters for my work in progress, Burnt Offering, ready to be typed. The words are "loaded" on my mental hard drive. I simply need to put my fingers to work, my lazy fingers.

     Burnt Offering became an obsession when I read about King Ahaz worshiping the idol Moluck and giving his own son as a burnt offering, burning the child alive. I had read the scriptures before, but this time (about a year ago) struck an emotional chord, and I had to write.
