DIALOGUE WITH THE MOST HIGH
In the midst of the immeasurable expanse called the City of Light, seated upon a pure-gold throne, his hair white as snow, eyes glowing torches and the Deity’s electrified voice echoes into space cracking a whip giving salutation to the opening of the day. The Eternal Father, who makes all things new, powerfully vocalizes his intensity, releasing justified energy. Only the Holy Spirit heard God speak. Judgment was…Continue

I dialed Steve and left a voicemail. Disappointed, I dropped the phone on the bed and fell into a deep sleep. The camera rolled. I not only acted out the script but I narrated the talking points of the cinemascope footage.
My sister and I were standing in a pizza parlor in Brentwood, New York. The contours of Janie’s face changed. My older sibling’s lips…Continue

Feeling a bit buzzed, drinking the last drop, I indubitably guzzled the entire three-dollar bottle of red wine. This was a monumental undertaking because I’m not a drinker. Socially, I do imbibe at quarterly business functions but everyday survival; booze has never been a consideration or consolation. My life supports are…

Where were they she thought, the voices, they were supposed to join me after breakfast. Something small flying about near the ceiling high above caught her eye, she’d not expected to see flies in a place like this. She fixed her gaze on it there was something strange about it, that shimmer... As it got…Continue

Sometimes, we are faced with the inexplicable. Sometimes, things do not go as we planned.
That does not mean that there is not something better waiting on the other side.
In "An Amish Home Volume 7 – The Fall", one of those things happens.
Young Ruth and her brother venture off into the woods for some innocent and much needed play time. What happens next is almost a tragedy and Ruth receives an ominous message from the mysterious figure that some have called her…

1 Corinthians 10:1-13

And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; And did all eat the same spiritual meat;
And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.
But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they…

From Matthew 1: 18-25
Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.
Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.
But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to…

It took more than a year, but finally we have. Olivia and I started this project when she was 8 years old. Next week, she turns 10. What a wonderful journey! I have loved sharing every minute of it with her. Who knows what comes next?
