Another Side – Pt. 2

L.T. Garvin

This is an old story that I wrote approximately 200 years ago, otherwise known as the 1990s, for a creative writing class that I was taking for credit hours in English lit. Professor I Don’t Remember His Name said that this story “did not bother him that much” but that I leaned much too heavily upon The Yellow Wallpaper.  Well, why have us read it, then?  Anyway, he gave me a C- proving that indeed, there is only one Yellow Wallpaper and there is only one Charlotte Perkins Gilman.  Later on, I submitted it once for publishing and was thoroughly rebuked as the editor remarked, “stories like the Yellow Wallpaper are very, very difficult to write.”  So I guess they are, and I haven’t veered into wallpaper territory since.

Move in day came upon us. The weather was pleasant that morning, but the afternoon turned to rain. We watched and…

JUST A PRAYER AWAY…by Carl Gooch

By the Mighty Mumford

Just A Prayer Away
Life’s storms are threatening
Will I stand the day?
Lord, I need your shelter
Please come to me and stay.
Lord, my help… Is just a pray away
It’s just a prayer away
Lord, my help… Is just a pray away
It’s just a prayer away
Yes, I see the Devil creeping
Stand guard today
Don’t get caught a sleeping
It is now time to pray
Lord, my help… Is just a pray away
It’s just a prayer away
Lord, my help… Is just a pray away
It’s just a prayer away
Anger and pain
Pray it goes away
Pray it goes away
Old Satan is threatening
Our very lives today
Lord, I need your shelter
More than ever today
Lord, our help… Is just a pray away
It’s just a prayer away
Lord, our help… Is just a pray…

Once Again Reborn ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Today,  I was feeling,
quite weary and down
I needed something
to turn my thoughts around.

So, I took out my Bible,
and I began to read
God’s every promise
to supply all I need.

Today, I was thinking,
I needed a faith lift
for mine seem to be
in some kind of drift.

So, I read the Scriptures,
about Jesus in the storm
and soon my every thought
He began to transform.

Today I was feeling,
spiritually forlorn . . .
but, as I read the Good News
I felt once again reborn!

~~~~~~

1 Peter 1:23

“Being born again,
not of corruptible seed,
but of incorruptible,
by the word of God,
which liveth and abideth
for ever.”

WHILE I’M HERE…by Carl Gooch

By the Mighty Mumford

While I’m Here
Holy Spirit come and fill me with desire,
My Lord guides me in times of strife.
Let His act of mercy and love now inspire,
And give the dead and dying new life.
Lord, rid me of all my doubts and fears,
Comfort me in your loving embrace.
Quiet my sobbing and dry my bitter tears,
Let my heart overflow with your grace.
Holy Spirit keep me strong in this day
Remind me the source of my salvation.
Although the world may not see the way,
You are the only hope for this nation.
God did create me and give me birth.
Christ died for me and gave me worth.
His Spirit guides me while here on earth.

Upon these Wings,
Fearlessly Welcome whatever Life Brings!
