United States

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!

Message from Writer

A message from me is not important. I wish only to be a mirror through which the light of Christ is reflected. Listen to His message, not mine:

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God’s power . . ." 1 Peter 1:3-5

Your Voice: Globalization

Dear America

Dear America,

Who are we?

I don't recognize us.

We are witnessing a swift descent in this land that cannot fully be blamed on our leaders. Tell me, are we "one nation under God" or are we "one nation without God"? We were founded on the unchanging principles we now seek to negate.

My dear America,

Who were we? What have we lost?

We were the land which a family toiled. We were the man who rose before dawn to work his land, to provide for his family. We were the children who knew the gender they belonged to, who didn't see need to riot in the streets because there was work to be done. We were the woman who worked beside her husband and took care of her family. We were the presidents who grew up on such a farm, and knew the value of a hard day's labor in one's own fields. We were the nation who fought...

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.
