  1. Another lovely poem. Thanks once again for sharing! I sense a lot of me and my own attitudes and reflections in this one.
  2. I didn't know there was a movie! I'll have to check it out!
  3. Ah yes, anything by Agatha Christie is usually pretty amazing. Poirot is great, though I've only read one novel which features him (the final one), and several short stories. Her stand alone novels, the ones which do not feature any recurring characters, are the ones which have astounded me. And Then There Were None is excellent, and one of the scariest things I've ever read, and Crooked House was intriguing as well - starts out kinda slow, but the pay-off is at the end, and totally worth it. The Queen of Mystery is one of my all-time favorite authors.
  4. Sorry I'm late to the guessing game, but hey! You're just a couple inches taller than me!! I am so abnormally small for being 15. And you're half Filipino? Crazy, I am too!!
  5. This is lovely. Thank you.
  6. I can relate, Ky! Just know that we (and others) are here for you, and you are loved. I'll be praying!
  7. May God bless you and keep you, and I'll be praying for you!
  8. Thanks, @Wes B! From what you said, I would be happy to give it a read. I don't necessarily approve of using cuss words, (and don't use them myself) but I do read some books and watch some movies with them. While I don't like them, as long as they are not rampant throughout, I'm okay. From what you said, it sounds like they are used very judiciously. Plus, my parents are of the same mind and know that I don't talk like that, and they know exposure to that kind of language is inevitable. When I was younger, and I came across a cuss in a book, I would mentally substitute a "clean" word ins
  9. Hello Bradley, and welcome to Christianwriters! It's a pleasure to meet you! Incidentally, you mentioned Tennessee in your main post. I gotta say, it's one of my favorite states, and I would love to live there one day!
  10. Thank you so much for the further information! I appreciate your taking the time to explain, and I look forward with great interest to reading both books. Out of curiosity, would you say Go Set a Watchman is age-appropriate for teens?
  11. @Ky_GirlatHeart Please don't take this rudely, but wow, I'm surprised that you have never heard of him! Rush Limbaugh was a hugely popular Conservative radio talk show host. He kinda started the whole Conservative radio show thing, and dozens of others have followed him, but he's the original and the best. He had millions of listeners, and he was smart and funny, and talked about current politics and stuff in a way that was understandable and entertaining. He also authored several books. He's a man I have major respect for, and I earnestly hope he was a born again Christian.
  12. Everyone's been having a literary/philosophical discussion on To Kill a Mockingbird, and I missed the party! I love the story. The movie is one of my favorites, but I'll admit I'm also a sucker for Gregory Peck. I embarrassingly admit that I have yet to read the book, though I have tried about two or three times to get I to it. And yet I still love the story! I honestly think part of my difficulty in reading the book is that I don't have a good copy. The one I have is an old paperback from the basement, that makes me feel like it's gonna fall apart if I try to read it for to
  13. I love this excerpt from Madeline L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time, probably because I relate to it. This was the moment that meant that now and forever everything would be alright. As she pressed against her father all was forgotten except joy. There was only the peace and comfort of leaning against him, the wonder of the protecting circle of his arms, the feeling of complete reassurance and safety that his presence always gave her. Her voice broke on a happy sob. "Oh, Father! Oh, Father!" And I also love this excerpt from the same book, several pages later. W
  14. I've been listening to him since I was a little kid. Both my parents loved listening to his show, and he was a talented, witty, and highly intelligent man. I'm ... not really sure how I feel right now. This is just really sad. As a side note, I personally totally agreed with his politics, but I only share that to show where I stand. I even tried calling into his show a few times, but I never got through the busy lines. I did send him a couple emails at some point. Wish I had had the chance to speak to him personally, as I greatly admired him. Rush will be sorely missed, and
