  1. Such a power story and testimony of God's presence in your life! It's awesome that you have those fond memories of your walks to school. He's still using those memories in your life as confirmation of His continual presence, and that He'll never leave you or forsake you. Thanks for sharing your story, Becky!
  2. Thanks for sharing this, Nikki! This really spoke to me: When we are in Christ, lies no longer can hold up. God breaks down that bondage as we come face to face with our individual truths. It’s a painful process that is life changing. Blessings!
  3. MaryKaithe, I love your story! Even though you posted it over one month ago, I only just now read it. You've certainly had a passion for God all of your life, and He's definitely not finished with you yet!! I love what you said about your poetry and stories being breadcrumbs of faith for others to follow! Thank you for sharing your breadcrumbs of faith for us to read! Although I missed your first Communion, I'm celebrating with you today!!
  4. That's a good question...I don't know how many poems are needed to make up an anthology.
  5. You are a true poet, MaryKaithe! I felt like I was reading the poem of one of the great poets of the past! Thanks for sharing!
  6. Hi MaryKaithe, It's nice to meet you. I've been writing for a long time - probably since the early 80s. That sounds like quite a challenge that you and your friend used to participate in! I'm super impressed that you know all of those different types of poetry!
  7. I'm coming back to the simplicity of Jesus - and me... returning to my first love - how it was at the beginning. Seeking You first - seeking Your face, Jesus... searching for Your heart, and finding it. Discovering that Your heart has always been entwined with mine. We are together - we two. You are in me, and I am in You. This is the simplicity of intimacy - with You, Jesus!
  8. Lord, this is such an intense time - a time for everything to come out a time to set the record straight a time to come clean. A time to let emotions vent a time to confess faults a time of hope - a time to assess where we are and where we're going. A time like no other - a time to set our heart's desires in motion... a time to do what we know we should be doing! We cannot wait...the time is now. Time is of the essence. From this time...our destiny will emerge! Time has changed...the times have changed. God is doing a new thing now is shall spring forth... we are aware of it!
  9. Thank you Erin and Sarah for your replies! I am glad that I found this community, and have enjoyed everything about it so far! With regard to what genre I write, I mostly enjoy poetry - rhyming and non-rhyming. My poems typically focus on the presence of God - His majesty/Glory/goodness, etc. I'll never run out of things to say, that's for sure!! Blessings, David
  10. Scribewriter, thank you so much for your wonderful encouragement...it was such a blessing to me! I'm thrilled that something I wrote to the LORD is able to bless others, too! Blessings to you, David
  11. Your creation is buzzing, O God as another dawn rolls up the bed where night slept. The only sounds are the birds - jubilant that light has fallen. Fresh in the newness of morn. The pines are standing ever so tall and not even a needle is disturbed by day's arrival. It will be business as usual today as each minute yields to the rising sun. But is any day just a normal day when we're confronted with such incredible beauty? When the very handiwork of God exudes praise to the Father? When the heart of man revels in the presence of the Almighty? God, You are so evident here - down to the smallest detail. From the dampness of the ground to the fog in the distance. It's all You, loving Creator - by You, and for Your Glory. God, as a part of Your creation I marvel at what You've done! But mostly, I marvel at what You've done in me! Good morning, Father!
  12. Thanks Nicola, carolinamtne and L. Wong for taking the time to respond, and for the great advice that each of you offered!! I very much appreciate it!
  13. Thank you Lynn and Accord64 for your publishing advice. I'm really new to all of this, so I definitely value everything both of you said. Lynn, thank you, too, for moving my thread. Blessings!
  14. Hello Christian writers! I joined Christian Writers last month after I realized that the information, support and resources in CW was top notch. I was taken aback by David Gaughran's Elm Hill Books: Another HarperCollins Vanity Press, to say the least. I was looking into using Elm Hill to publish a book I've written, but am so glad that I read Mr. Gaughran's article first! It sounds like WestBow and perhaps Xulon Publishers, which I've done some research on, are no better. I also just read about the guy (sorry...I don't remember his name) that sent his book to 57 different publishers!! I admire his effort, but have to ask if it's really even possible for a first-time author to get published in the traditional sense. I'd love any feedback that anyone has regarding book publishing for first-timers! Thank you, David Love
