I am an aspiring writer who happens to live on a farm and love cats! So as it is said on my blog, I'm an author, farmer, and daughter of the King of Kings. I hope my writing leaves you with some kind of blessing today, big or little.

God bless!

Intentions and Invocations

Anthem, 2018

My hope, my prayer, for this new year, is that it be a year of hope. Of life. Of faith. Of blessing. Of inspiration. Of light. Of grace.

Let us be those things in the lives of people around us. Think of someone in your life. Now go out and be for them, hope. Life. Faith. A blessing. An inspiration. Light. Grace.

Compassion changes us. Take up this anthem with me.

Let compassion be our anthem in the year of 2018. Who is with me?

These Friends of Mine

Twilight descends upon the surface of the waters like a mother's kiss. It makes me think of the last time I saw her – my mother, her face alight as she bid farewell to my father and myself before we boarded the ship. She put a kiss on my cheek and said she would meet us there when we returned home.

Pulling me from these recollections is the dull roar of a wave. It bends over as if in pain, then slithers upon the sand, reaching to tickle my bare feet. I am reminded. We never returned.

The other side of this island is the unmarked grave – the shell of a ship that lies broken and bleeding, doomed to be washed by the ocean for eternity. In my recollections, I am forced to beg for the answer. Why am I alive? Alone?

So lonely . . .

One Light Shining - Chapter One

CADE WAS TRESPASSING. In his own home. Or, more correctly, the home he had been banished from.
He knew these halls and stairs, so the lack of candles did not hinder him. Some small, traitorous part of him wished it did. He tried hard to seal it off, but his conscience persisted until sweat tingled on his neck and his hands turned cold. His father would disapprove of such weakness, but could Cade actually help it? His intentions within this home tonight were so nefarious he could not allow the words to form in his mind. He prayed to the Ancient Ones for strength and withdrew his knife from its sheath.
The upstairs halls found him too quickly. He raised defenses against the barrage of memories, but the attack was one of vengeance and his walls were made of hurts and betrayals. The stairways up which he had run with the boy he had called his friend, the closets they...

One Light Shining - Chapter One


I am paralyzed by the eyes. His gaze is like steel cutting into my soul. I can't escape it. I can't escape him, not even when my body jolts into consciousness, leaving sweat soaking into my pillow and ragged gasps entering my lungs. Darkness peers down on me. I miss the lights of the city. They always made me feel safer at night. Here there is no light to combat the dark of my mind.
If there's any God out there, save me.
After several minutes more, I can breathe again. I won't close my eyes – every time I do, I see his. They're after me. They want me. I'm scared.
The bedside clock bleeds red for four am, and I resist the urge to smash it clean off the lampstand. It's bold, it's loud. I've been on edge like this a great deal lately. I can't let anyone see what's happening, especially Logan, though I know he...

Why I Write

With Pen in Hand

Fellow writer and wielder of the pen,

I write so as to journey to other worlds . . .

to tame dragons . . .

to fashion universes that never existed . . .

to save the world . . .

to praise God . . .

. . . with pen in hand . . .

. . . I write. Do you?

Flash Autobiography

This is the Miracle

I hold my breath, my heart rate quickening in anticipation. This is it.

The goat lying on the hay is wide-eyed, is breathing rapidly, and is only moments away from a new life entering the world on our farm. I silently urge her on as I pray for her and the baby, of whom I can see only the nose and two tiny hooves. The little one is in the right position. We have only to wait.

The goat gives it all she has once more and her infant is free. I stoop down beside them, hastily rubbing down the new kid with a towel. It's crucial to do this as quickly as possible, but so many goat kids have been born on our farm, it's second nature. This one is a little doeling, and she is beautiful. Magically colored, she sports strawberry roan, creamy white, and speckles of gray. I back away as her mother pushes in to lick clean...

The Nightwalker


He walks the streets like a ghost, but chuckles to himself at the irony. He is a ghost. He does not exist. He has no name.

Except to these, the flock, the redeemed, those to whom he comes tonight with a heavy, troubled heart.

He watches the streets, cautious and careful in his approach. Surveillance is quiet tonight. He makes his way first to the prisons. Crude, gunmetal shelters built near the edge of the city. The people here know what to do when he comes – take the food wrapped in cloth as he holds it through the bars, say nothing. He whispers a prayer at each window, surrendering piece by piece his broken heart. Father, save these people.

Nothing was the same after the bombings and the radiation that poisoned the country. Law meant nothing when the military took rogue control. The people suffer now, more, he believes, from the oppression of occupation and persecution than from nuclear...

Mercy

"Mercy," he cries in terror cold. "Have mercy!"

My sword jabs at his chest. My body sheds sweat as rain from these angry clouds. He dares ask for mercy? On his hands is my father's blood. My beloved's. Mercy. I was taught to not hate, but this? He is not man. He is beast.

With trembling, he pleads. Blood gathers on the stone beneath his knees. I can end this, but I hear my father's voice. My beloved's. They call for ceasefire. But how can I forgive?

I look into his eyes.

I tremble.

I drop my sword.
