Watch Your Tongue

Photo by Ketut Subiyanto on Pexels.com Not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly.  We all stumble in many ways. Anyone who is never at fault in what they say is perfect, able to keep their whole body in check. When we put bits into the mouths …

Boris On the Rebound

"Boris?" I glanced up and was startled to see my neighbor, Tulia standing there. I hadn't heard her because I was so deep in thought. I was still reeling from the shock of Cate breaking off our engagement. The ring was in my pants pocket. I longed to throw it away but it was expensive. …

Our Strength

Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, Whose heart is set on pilgrimage.  As they pass through the Valley of Baca, They make it a spring; The rain also covers it with pools. They go from strength to strength; Each one appears before God in Zion (Psalm 84:5-7, NKJV). Photo by YURI MANEI from Pexels Our strength lies in the power of God's Word and His Spirit. Our …

Intoxicated

It was spring and I was at a party.  I was bored out of my mind and then, she walked in, a vision of incomparable beauty.   Our eyes met across the room and then she was making her way over to me. In a soft, lilted voice, she introduced herself.  "Nora."  Her lips parted …

The Meeting

She watched Mr. Falconer as he sat there, proud upon the magnificent steed, her heart pounding against her ribs.  Face flushed, she waited with bated breath to see if he would even notice that she was there.  It was by no accident that she was walking through this part of the forest.  She had come …

A Misunderstanding

“Is your uncle at home?” Ashley asked casually as they walked the grounds on a beautiful, sunny spring afternoon.  She was wearing a denim jacket because it was still a bit cool.  They were at Eastwell Manor where Bradley was staying with his uncle until he found his own flat.  It was a magnificent place …

Family Affairs

“You’re the most infuriating, insufferable, arrogant man I have ever met,” she fumed. He looked unperturbed.  “Is this what you came all the way over here to tell me?” he asked.  “You could have just as easily phoned me and save yourself an hour’s drive.” “I wanted to tell you what I think of you …

The Match Maker

Christina was sitting on the porch, enjoying a late spring afternoon when Logan joined her.   "So how is Pemberton's self appointed matchmaker?"   "Don't you have anything else to do beside annoy me?"   He leaned against the door frame, his eyes intent on her. "Whose life have you decided to meddle with this time?" …
