Miscellaneous Writings

This is a collection of articles, poems, and stories that don’t match the “Why…Because” format.

Remember!

How would what Lazarus experienced affect his perspective on the events that followed?

God Knows

It’s easy to forget just how omniscient God really is.

A Special Weekend

What might it have been like to be a Roman soldier witnessing the events of that first Easter weekend?

You Are Special!

It seems that so much of the way people behave stems from a desire to feel significant. That’s not necessary: they are already infinitely valuable to God.

We Three Kings

I happened to really listen to the words of this Christmas carol on the radio. I was surprised at them, so I looked them up for more details.

Adam’s First Day

We grow up surrounded by God’s creation. Adam didn’t: As far as the Bible says, he was created already adult. How might he have reacted when awakening to so much beauty and diversity? What was his relationship with God like?

Missing Papaw

I wrote this over forty years ago, when my grandfather passed away. It was my first experience of death that close to me. At first, it seemed a bit personal to post on this site. But I decided that it’s real, and someone out there may identify with the feelings.

Still A Great Country

This Independence Day, let’s all thank God for our country and its Constitution. Let’s also commit to living within that framework that has made the United States a leader in freedom and innovation for 246 years.

From Despair to Joy

This Easter, imagine the difference between that Friday afternoon and that Sunday morning! The difference between “I am a sinner” and “Jesus saved me” is just as enormous.

A Day of Thanksgiving

For this Thanksgiving 2021 post, I decided to go through my day listing things for which to be thankful. It was a joyous exercise, one that could have gone on for much longer.

Incredible

I have always found it easier to accept God’s infinite power than His infinite love. Power is obvious in Creation. But love? That seems too good to be true, but the Bible insists that it IS true. This prayer is my response of praise to Him.

Pharoah’s Daughter

I was in a seminar on writing monologues to go along with worship services. We were instructed to choose an obscure Bible character, and write from their perspective. Pharoah’s daughter, who raised Moses, gets a whole five verses (Exodus 2:5-10). This is my take on what might have happened after those verses.

Woman Caught in Adultery

The Bible does not tell us why the woman was having an affair. It does seem suspicious, though, that she was being prosecuted while the man was not. This my imaginary explanation.

Welcome

Imagine the welcome that God’s children will receive when they get to Heaven!

Mary’s Testimony

I wrote this in Christmas of 2019 for no particular reason. I just kind of like writing monologues. Maybe this is something like how Mary felt before her first Christmas.

Not Me, But God

This is my prayer for this website, and for everything I do.

The Stone’s Story

This is a story I wrote for Easter, many years ago. It was fun thinking from the different perspective. It may be my favorite of everything I’ve written.

Remember!

God Knows

Blessed Nation?

America has been greatly blessed. Will it continue to be?
