My buddy Don Regier agreed to write a guest blog for me today in honor of National Pig Day! Don has good reason to celebrate since he has a brand-new book out (see below) that reimagines the story of the prodigal son from Luke 15:11-32. It meets two of my criteria for reading: 1) it’s about animals; 2) it has pictures. If you value a well-written story that will delight and encourage you and your kids, be sure to click on the link below and order Prodigal Pig Tale!
Today, March 1, we celebrate at least three significant holidays.
Share a Smile Day. It will keep you grinning from ear to ear today.
National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day. Did you know that one serving is two tablespoons?
National Pig Day. It’s not clear whether we celebrate pigs for their character or for their contribution. Aren’t you glad they have extra ribs to spare?
For me personally, I admire pigs because of the McSwine family—friends of mine. They live on a miniature pig farm in my art studio.
I’ve told their story in an e-book, Prodigal Pig Tale, available from iBooks. It’s about forgiveness, and is a great sit-down-and-read experience for you and your kids or grandkids. As an interactive book for iPads and IOS devices, it includes videos and fun things to click on.
I’m excited to tell you that in the next few days I hope to publish a Kindle edition that you can read on any computer, smart phone or digital device.
And to commemorate National Pig Day I’m posting the first in a series of weekly YouTube videos, McSwine Flu. We’ll be watching what happens when a classic car falls into the hands of Decker McSwine. You may cringe at some of his escapades, but get ready for a redemptive ending on down the road.
