Spent Shells

Ethiopian farmers find them all the time. Spent shells. Bomb casings from past wars and conflicts litter their fields like plastic water bottles on a busy roadside. This left-over battle waste must be cleared or it serves as a hazard to the farmer’s meager equipment. Question is, “What do you do with spent shells?” These […]

The Garden

It started in a garden. Creation. Worlds erupted to life. Stars flung through skies. Planets spun into orbits. Mountains sculpted. Seas filled. Chaos took shape as order was formed. The void animated with the energies of new life. Out of dust man was created. From his body, a perfect match forged. In place of nothing, a beautiful, flourishing Garden called Eden burst forth full of life […]

It wasn’t his best day. Not even close. After a very long obedience in the right direction, he let down his guard, had a bit too much to drink and wound up in a highly compromising situation. Had he been able to stay awake, he would have been embarrassed and humiliated. But he was in […]

In the fast-paced frenzy of life as we know it, such moments seem fewer and farther between than ever before. The frenetic energy of everyday living and the white noise of technology’s incessant intrusion routinely drown out the voices of those we most long […]

What Do I See?

She was well-known to men. Hated by their wives. Easy on the eyes and available for a price. To say the least, her reputation had preceded her and it was not pretty. It had been so long since she had been treated with respect she had forgotten what it felt like. Being embraced in love was such […]

This Father’s Heart

It burst out of him spontaneously. He literally couldn’t help himself. When our oldest grandson, Gabe, was little and something really good happened to him, he would look up with an ecstatic smile and squeal, “Happy birthday to me!” It made no difference that it wasn’t even close to his birthday, he could think of no better […]
