That’s it, nothing else to report on for now. I’ve started working on the next few pages, and I’m thinking I’ll eventually have to add some sort of characters-section to the website. Eventually.

It reminds me of 2 Chron. 32:31, the subject of which had escaped my memory for a long time until earlier this year. I had read all through the Bible before, but that bit was unfamiliar; it was like a passing mention of God leaving us to our own devices, and I suddenly didn't know where the actual story was. For looking it up, I also got to read the sermon "Hezekiah and the Ambassadors, or Vainglory Rebuked" by C. H. Spurgeon, which for me was a proper introduction to the author. While it's somewhat less related to this prologue, perhaps the most personally relevant and now painfully obvious point is the line, "Pride will grow on a dunghill, as well as in the king’s garden." Have you ever read Petunia by Roger Duvoisin? I can't remember how young I was, but I never forgot it. It seems that I failed to take away the lesson, back when there was still time to not ruin everything. *sigh*
This is rather nicely done, and I hope all that is ahead will come and go at least as well for you. Thanks again!
Awesome transition to the main characters, I am so happy to see the reference to scripture near the end of the account. Can't wait to see how the story develops!
