The Football Game

To say that I was excited about seeing Jully would be a huge understatement. I hardly slept last night and this morning, I was anxious for the hours to go by quickly and for the time to come when I would head out to meet her in front of French Quarter restaurant. On the way, …

Ede Meets Hank

It had been several weeks since Father Desjardins left. She missed him very much, especially their talks about the Bible and religion in general. There were times when she walked through the fields, half expecting to see him or him sitting down at the picnic table at the back of her grandmother's house. She went …

Father Desjardins’ Announcement

"Good morning, Ede." "Good morning, Father Desjardins." "Ede, I have news which I wanted to share with you before it is announced in church on Sunday." She looked at him. "I hope it isn't bad news." "No, it isn't bad news. I've been called to minister to Catholics in a parish in Ireland." For several …

Jolene/Stark #writephoto

"Y'all gonna be okay while I'm gone?" Darlene asked her husband, Mick and her daughter, Jolene.  She was heading off for the weekend to a Women's Ministry retreat in Atlanta. They both looked at her before Mick answered, "Yes, we gonna be okay.  Don't fuss so.  It's not like you ain't been away before.  We …

His Muse

The painting was almost complete.  He just had to add a few touches.  Painting landscapes was never his thing but he had been forced to paint them since...He tossed the paintbrush down and got up.  He walked over to the window and stared out into the street below.  It was quiet now.  It was Sunday.  …

The Barbecue

"You're not his type." If that smile were meant to take the sting out of her words it didn’t work.  Kay was smarting from it.  “I don’t mean to upset you, Kay, but I thought I would warn you because I have seen the way you look at Quinn every time you see him.  I …

The Move to Paris

It took a lot of moxie to get her here to Paris but it is her faith in God that keeps her going. Leaving Toronto with its familiar haunts, a job she loved, family and friends to settle in a city she had only visited once wasn`t an easy thing to do at all.  She …

The Attention

Rose could feel the townspeople watching her and Victor Ashdown as they left the local church.  It was raining and Victor was holding the umbrella over her. The tongues had been wagging since they showed up for the Sunday morning service.   No doubt they were wondering why Victor Ashdown was there with Rose instead …

Women’s Fellowship

Years ago, I was part of the Women's Ministry at my church and one of the things I really liked about it was the fellowship.  We would hold programs like "Lunch and Learn" where women would come together at someone's home and a pastor or a speaker is invited to share a profound message with …

God Provides

Psalm 104 Last week Sunday my family and I watched The Great Migration, part of BBC's Nature's Great Events series narrated by David Attenborough. It was set in the Serengeti.  Each year the Serengeti grasslands are teeming with wildebeest and zebra, making it a paradise for the predators that live there.  As long as these animals were around, …
