When the Years Fade…

The echoes of long ago: laughter and beauty. Where have they gone? Faded into oblivion.
Loss of any beautiful thing is a sorrowful and miserable thing.

There is no bridge to the past,
just a wide open gap. A gorge; hungry for time.
You can stand at the edge and stare out, but you can never reach the other bank.
those voices become faraway echoes or taunting whispers, but their faces are too far away to see; their smile is burned in your mind, but you can’t remember all the flecks in their eyes.
…Time is a thief of all beautiful and good things.

The Affection of Jesus

He called her by name, meeting her where she stood weeping over her Lord. Oh to be Mary Magdalene and have the precious honor to weep over our Lord with such tenderness, and then to be met by him and hear his voice gently say your name to strengthen you and reassure you, “I am here.” βœπŸ’œπŸ’›πŸŒΌ

When Life Darkens

God is in the works behind the scenes with something more incredible than you could imagine… especially when all seems lost and hopeless.
When life feels like a tomb, and we are left to grieve our hopes, it’s God of the impossible’s turn to make an incredible miraculous way. Because everything is possible for him.

A God Love

It’s never-ending. It’s definite and infinite. It’s something you can count on time and time again. Something that sees you in your mess and still loves you.

He loves you like that πŸ’™β€

What Controls Today?

Not this fear. Not this mess. Not this world.
God writes today.
Every day I make a mess of my life, every day that fear strikes, every day that regret comes knocking, I remember that God is still the King.

The Ratchet House Series

I last worked on this series back in August of 2020, and the finish of this exact storyline may never see the light of day–and I’m just as sad as you are about that. It is a masterpiece (with a few typos πŸ˜…)
I really wish there was more to this story. Who knows, maybe I’ll write a similar version and the Ratchet House Series can live on 😊
This was my next “big idea” series that I planned on making huge; I could see it being a popular and possibly best-selling series, but I suppose time got away…
Nonetheless, enjoy this first teasing bit of it.
I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed rediscovering it πŸ™‚
