    Tied To A Tree

    Job 19:10-14 10 He hath destroyed me on every side, and I am gone: and mine hope hath He removed like a tree. 11He hath also kindled his wrath against me, and He counteth me unto him as [one of] his enemies. 12 His troops come together, and raise up their way against me, and encamp round about my tabernacle. 13 He hath put my brethren far from me, and mine acquaintance are verily estranged from me. 14 My kinsfolk have failed, and my familiar friends have forgotten me. Job 19:22-27 22 Why do ye persecute me as God, and are not satisfied with my flesh? 23 Oh that my…

    Four Hours From Montrose

    “Coach Johnson, when will you be leaving?” He stopped and looked at the reporter. He wanted to frown and say “No comment.” Instead he smiled, “Haven’t made any travel plans yet Ron.” Then he waived to the reporters and headed for his office.  Jason “Jace” Johnson had been a high school star, SEC, and National champ. He was awarded the Heisman trophy.  He had three Super Bowl rings, two as quarterback,  and one as Head Coach.  That was three years ago.   For the last three seasons nothing had went right professionally.  He had lost his star quarterback to a richer team, more players followed the next year. Today he had…

    Cambridge’s: An Emporium?

    “Imagine it, an emporium? With all kinds of items as far as the eye can see. Cambridge’s will be the most important store in all of England.” Winston Jr. was absolutely beaming with excitement. His Father smiled at him. He let his son enjoy the adventure of his imagination for a few minutes, then sat him down. “Son, you have a bright and an exciting future ahead. I don’t doubt that you could make this the single most vital merchant location in all of Europe. If you choose to do that, I’ll back you one hundred and twenty percent. Before you do though, I’d like you to look around.” Winston…

    The Italian Hatmaker

    Guiseppe Cavallaro had a long history, and an adventurous life.  You wouldn’t think it to look at him, sewing leather in his hat shop.  You also wouldn’t expect that his house shop was not in Sicily, but in London. He had been there for twenty years, he and his wife Laurel.  They had added five children to the Cavallaro family.  Of course, no one knew them by that name. To the world, they were Joseph and Laura Cavalier. They hid their identity to secure a life together.  Guiseppe had not been famous or infamous.  His life began simply as a simple Italian hat maker in his native Italy.  Until the…

    My Partner

    Her name is Ashley Dawn Pruitt, she is my Wife, my Soulmate, my Partner, and my Friend. I love her so much! I wanted to take a few minutes and share how extra special that she is. While it will not surprise you to know that, next to God, she is my life, there’s something our readers may not know. Of course she is the inspiration to much of my writing, but she is also my first Editor. If she is within ear shot, before it goes on the page she hears it. When I can’t ask her first, she’s the first one I ask when I see her. If…

    Visionaries

    Since the beginning, God has selected very special people to be the Vision Carriers of His plan. They have been charged with communicating and casting that vision for God’s people. Men like Enoch, Noah, Moses, and Simon Peter both cast and carried God’s Message to man. Today we call them Pastors, in Revelation, God called them the Angels of the Church. The calling they fulfill is not easy, and can at times, be very lonely. Yet, in every generation, faithful Men Of God have stood unwavering sharing God’s love. Cherish the Man Of God that He has placed in our lives to guide, edify, and direct us toward the future.…

    The Flop: The Prime Minister Doesn’t Like Me

    I wondered how long it would take, a day, two, before he found it. Meyersmith was good, possibly the best I had ever faced. Jean Luc was in no danger, Meyersmith loved animals. He would know that the cat was a riddle, he would enjoy solving it. So I waited, I visited areas of Novia Scotia, enjoyed a little of a Christmas vacation, and planned my next move. He found me in a local book store that sold coffee. We both loved coffee, and I had developed a sweet tooth, one that I regretted every morning in the gym. When he set down with his crueler and his coffee, his…
