    Shepherds Coast

    Zephaniah 2:6 And the sea coast shall be dwellings and cottages for shepherds, and folds for flocks. The wonderful thing about this verse is the promise that, the land in question, after years of being an oppressive enemy to Israel, would have an entirely new purpose. God used a word for coast, that I feel, helps to illustrate this. The word coast, also means a noose of cords.   I remembered today, that a noose and a lifeline have the same shape. One goes around the neck of the accused, and the other around the waste of the one in trouble. Whether stuck on the side of a cliff, or…

    Alaskan Silver Surprised 

    They just stared at each other for a moment, calculating the other’s possible moves. Strand had walked out, his security around him. Edward spoke first. “Why does somebody with as many arms as you have in everything suddenly need security?” First a laugh, then a small barely detectable sneer, masked by another smile was the response. Instead of answering, Strand addressed Mayor Lafayette. “I suppose this means our association is at an end Mayor. I did have such illustrious plans for your eventual demise, now they’ll have to be accelerated.” Carl was enough of a politician to control hisself enough not to do what he wanted. His first idea had…

    Alaskan Silver The Park

    Edward Mallory sat on a park bench. Those who knew him felt sorry for him, although they couldn’t risk admitting it. At least not now, after what had happened. Edward had been up against two of the shrewdest operators in the country, three if you count the ghost of Thorn Piper.   He knew it all now, or at least, believed that he did. It seemed they always had another card to play. He asked himself if he should have tried at all, but then, he knew the answer to that. His Uncle had taught him that, while politics is a hard life, if your ethics and motives dictated your…

    Light Invades The Shadows 

    God walks the dark hills The ways, the by waysHe walks through the billows Of life’s troubled sea He walks through the cold dark night The shadows of midnight God walks the dark hills Just to guide you and me I love the lyrics to this old song, as well as, Standing In The Shadows You’ll See Jesus. He who is Light, and in Him is no darkness at all, goes into the dark areas that trouble our lives so we can see. He goes into darkness, something completely opposite of Him, just for us, and transforms it, without it ever altering Him in any way. To cap it off…

    The farmer is glad for his field. It is a place where he sees the result of his labor. Whether tilling, sowing, or reaping, this is the place where investment meets return.

    Alaskan Silver Wolf Rescue

    The meeting had been coming for a long time. One was glad it was finally happening, the other, didn’t care for the timing. He was sat in a chair, and tied up, under the threat of a gun. Only it wasn’t Ralph Hearns, it was Pin, and he wasn’t in great condition just now. His face and body had been beaten, and now, he was looking at one of the men he had sacrificed his future to put away. “Why here cop, why now?” “If I knew I’d be meeting you here, I would have brought a friend or two.” “Pals with bullets no doubt.” “No, teeth.” A few hours…
