Sometimes I tell stories. Most of the time I rattle my soul until I break and my heart spills out onto the page.

"I cannot jump the distance. You'll have to toss me!"--Gimli, LOTR

I am a complete nerd. I got the Ring of Power for my birthday.

Book recommendations:
The Oath--Frank E. Peretti
Lord of the Rings--J.R.R. Tolkien

Song recommendation: "Awake" by Beckah Shae

I'm going to meet the King someday!
And I'm super pumped!

things i do not fear

i do not fear the darkness; i fear the pain that
may come if an unseen hand reaches out of
the dark while i sleep, but i do not fear the
darkness, for my Lord is light, and He has
vanquished those who reside in the dark
of night, and so i do not fear them.

i do not fear the depths of the sea; i fear the pain
of drowning, of sinking to a watery grave, of
fighting to stay above the surface but
i do not fear the depths of the sea, for even
they, so vast, so great, cannot separate me
from the love of my Savior.

i do not fear loneliness; i fear the pain of
fresh heartache, but i know even if i never have
another human companion, i can never be
lonely, not now. my Father is always with me,
and He will always love me, no matter
what happens, and nothing can separate us.

i do not fear death; i fear the pain that may
bring me to the moment when my body is
no longer living anymore, no longer breathing,
no heart beating, but i do not fear death, for
my King has conquered death, and when my
time comes He will be waiting for me.

i do not fear pain; no, i do not fear pain.
i do not fear sword or bullets or broken
bones. i need not fear anything, for my
Prince has suffered pain and he has
conquered it, and when i suffer pain
He will hold my hand and carry me.
