Blood On The Moon ~ the story

This is a short story and poem I wrote when I first started writing. It’s one of my personal favorites. Read it if you have time. I think you’ll find it very interesting.

001 Blood On the MoonBlood On the Moon was the first short story I wrote when I decided I wanted to try and write. This is the 2015 rewritten version (I hope it’s better than the original). It’s 2170 words long (5 single spaced pages), so print it and read it later if you want. I’ll even email it to you, if you can’t print it off the blog. Click the picture to enlarge and read the poem by the same title.

Memories

just us kids 2 (2) quote

There are times when it seems so easy, natural even, to look back on our past and ask, “What if?” But I’ve come to the realization that we are where we are because of, maybe in spite of, the things, the people, and the circumstances, of our past. Every look, touch, word, and happening helped shape us into who we are and place us where we are today. Me, I love where I am, and I’m at peace with who I am. I have no doubt or fear regarding the future, because it seems the farther I go… the more brightly the path before me is lit. Faith is my light.

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12

Please check out my two latest books, JUST A BOY (about my past) and, JUST A MAN (good news and encouragement about the past, present, and future).

The Sound of Love

sunrise-12-2-2016-quoteTime with God is like drinking coffee. We sip from the cup of hot brew, and when it begins to cool, we refill it so the heat returns. In the mornings, I refill my heart with the warmth of God’s love. This rekindles the fires within me—the desire to know Him and be a part of His world and His plan.

It’s just me and God in the morning. We talk and we listen—I to Him and He to me. I read, and I write; He watches and smiles. I’m like a child in my search for His knowledge.

I lay my requests before Him each morning, then wait expectantly as I go about my day. Sometimes… I can feel His loving gaze.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13

A Little Help Here, Please

I say I’m fearless and strong, and I try to encourage others to be fearless and strong, too. But when someone I love is hurting—whether it is spiritually, mentally, physically, or a combination of any/all of those—it’s hard for me to tell them to be fearless and strong. I often wish I could take their pain upon myself, but then I wonder if I could even handle it.

Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16
