Christmas, The Reason for the Season

                                     Christmas, The Reason For The Season

What a beautiful sight as the snow falls on all the brightly lighted homes, people rushing from store to store looking for that perfect gift that will bring joy to their loved one.  The bell ringers collecting for the less fortunate and  you witness a amazing thing, that almost every person stops and places money in the kettle.  Generally everyone you pass says how are you today and have a great day.  There is a…

Remembering the Jersey Shore

I grew up in New Jersey. I lived there until 2007 when I moved to Florida and reinvented myself as a writer. This past week has brought out emotions in me about my home state that I didn't even realize were there. Hurricane Sandy, which had only a slight impact on Florida with tropical storm conditions from its outer bands, slammed into New Jersey with unprecedented force, causing monumental damage to its famed beaches. Lives were lost. People were left homeless, their houses turned into a…

The ‘ah ha’ moment!

If you read my blog you know I’ve been dealing with some family health issues related to the dreaded C. Doing my final read for IMAGINATION has helped ease the boredom of fifteen-hour hospital room waits. Of course, waiting is nothing compared to what the patient must endure. It was during one of these interminable waits that I had my sudden, ‘ah ha’ moment. I realized, as my wrist and fingers grew sore from typing on my laptop sitting literally on my lap, that I’ve spent my life…

Poem: Faith!

Help me Lord to focus solely on Thee!

Issues and challenges of Life come and go,

defining me with my soul’s scarred essence.

Yet I remain, beneath Your heavenly flow!

Allow Your Presence to wash over me,

removing all evidence of sins’ stains.

Continue breaking the ungodly links of…

the remnant of shackling, prisoner chains.

Open my eyes fully that I may see

the way You view me within Your Kingdom.

Let this divine, flooding…

Poem: Silent Tears (II)

Have you envisioned

  our Lord upon The Cross?

Have you seen

  those considered lost?

Did you notice

  the absence of Grace?

Did you observe

  tears staining His face?

Can you imagine

  the agony of His pain?

Have you accepted the Gift

  of the Lamb that was slain?

On that day of crucifixion

  Love was brokenhearted

and divine reconciliation

Faith in the Fire

“I am going to give you one more chance, to deny this one you call Lord.” These were the words of an evil tyrant, who threatened them with his sword.

They kept the faith and trusted God, even knowing that they would die. One by one, they would to lay down their lives, never stopping to ask, God why.

Some were thrown to the lions, while others were ran thru with the spear. Yet in their darkest moments, they believed that God was near.

They were burned at the stake while…

This day and age could not be explained, and the people then could not understand.
