First Breath

   The pain began like exploding fireworks: Fierce, and relentless. There was no doubt you'd made up your mind and our world stood still, breathless. What if this was too soon?! One month before we expected, one whole month! Would the struggle of birth be too much for your tiny heart to bear? Questions swelled and surged like storm-tossed tides but you were...

The Wordless Chorus

Like fine jewels strewn over midnight velvet, Star dust scatters across endless galaxies in glittering array, A welcome committee for the King of Kings. He comes with the dawn, light flowing from his being like the graceful folds of a silk gown, cascading in pools about Him.   Elohim, Eternal One.   The train of his... Continue Reading →

The Graveyard

The graveyard entrance looms as I approach the top of the street in the steady summer heat. Silent and immovable, it is like a sentinel that's seen it all.  A few plant creepers stealthily make their way across its rugged surface, their wiry green vines spreading out like the veins on the back of my hands.

Walking worn corridors in dawn stillness, anticipating what is about to take place, My heart quickens at the thought: Two worlds set on course for collision are about to explode in display.   This place... If only walls could speak. For these ones have seen all manner of... Continue Reading →

“Who wants it?”

June. That was the name of the little old lady in our church by the sea, with its hopeful and humble congregation of thirty or forty believers. We met weekly in a small, modest bowling green at Waihi Beach in New Zealand. According to our bulletin sheets, we were supposed to begin our one Sunday... Continue Reading →

More Than Bread

"He did it to teach you that people do not live by bread alone; rather, we live by every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord." ~ Deuteronomy 8:3 ~ We live in a world crammed with endless information and blaring social media, to the point where the line between what is rumour and what is truth is...
