At the end of the year itís important to reflect on who we are thankful for. This poem is a reflective tribute to some of the best writers I have encountered on Authors Den in 2011. I hope you will read each one of these poems and short stories and I pray they bless you as well.


 

 

Authors Den - A Reflection of Writings from 2011 

 

If you want to read more about these writings you can click on the Author and just follow the link to the right spot on Authors Den. Amen!

 MaryGrace Patterson wrote an exceptional Thanksgiving Prayer.” This poem wisely suggest that "Thanksgiving" should be an everyday affair.

 

There is a man who has compassion and a heart of Gold for all of God’s precious pets.He goes by Mr. Ed; his poem titled: “So This Is Christmas” is the best one yet!

 

Then Deborah Ann Tornillo wrote “A New Day of Hope” about our four legged friends.  She cares about the fate of God’s animals with a Christ-like love that never ends.

 

You may have had the privilege of reading the lyrics to poems by Christine Tsen In her heartfelt poem Jingle!” she yearns to hear her mother’s voice again.

 

Dr. James E Martin wrote a touching poem titled, “Remembering The Storm.” Read it soon, if you want to learn how to stay safe, secure and warm.

 

“By the frozen pond The wind is playing a harp” can you picture this poem in your mind? These words are from, “Autumn Tearsby Regis Auffray; It’s great to read anytime!  

 

Zach, Z B McClure wrote “The Purpose of Poetry” and we all need to read this write. Why was Noah Webster’s words changed without Noah’s approval? It’s just not right!

 

There are folks like Cindy Tuttle who show their faith in Jesus, in poems and short stories. Her poem, “Where is Christmas” exudes strong love for our Savoir; giving Him all the glory!

 

Authors Dens’ Christine Alwin knows very well how to conjure up a creative haiku. Just check out “Cold Blanket” to experience a special message for me and for you!

 

It was great to read the stories from Michelle R Kidwell Power In The Pen.One of my favorites is titled: “With Broken Wings Made Whole Again

 

Phanuel Muverengwi believes that with God’s joy, we can solve many problems in life. "Don't Worry; Be Happy!" reveals people can’t sleep due to worry and strife.

The Bible is “Food for the hungry soul to feed. Water for the thirsty- A blessing for those who take time to read.” With her poems Patricia Bankhead plants many spiritual seeds.

 

Karla Dorman, The StormSpinner is a blessing to folks who read her writing, one and all. Her poem “Not Enoughis about thanking the Veteran’s who answered the ultimate call.

We all need to read more poetry and stories from Karen Lynn Vidra, The Texas Tornado. In “Waiting For The Other Shoe To Drop: Special Needs Parenting 101” she sets hearts aglow.

Connie Faust wrote: “As the bells tolled out the good news, My heart joined in to sing their song; A Visit to The Stable will draw us closer to our Savior, where we belong!”

 

The Power of Prevailing Prayers” by Inspire Hope offers positive words about prayer,  Margaret Mullings explains how our prayers can make a difference with Christ loving care.

Our Sure …Light! An inspirational Christ-filled extravaganza! Thank you Joyce M Bell! Her poetry helps to draw us near our Savior and the Bible. She does this so well.

 

The Boat By Michael Hollingsworth is about celebrating life before it’s too late.This story about how precious life is, how to enjoy it and how not to wait. 

“Thanks for being with me. In everything I do. I’ll try another day. To be more like you.” This is from Kathryn Neff Perry’s poem the “Setting of The Sun”. Her poems are all so new!

It's important to remember every day, the folks who served in the military. Many served in WWII and did not come home again. Donna Hale Chandler provides a tribute  in “My Military Men.” Amen!

Paul D Berube wrote, “Celebrate the Miracle” and said, “Be a friend to one and all.”He boldly added, “Should you see someone stumble, offer a hand to break their fall.”

 

I thank all you again my dear friends, from MaryGrace Patterson to my dear friend PaulI wish you continued writing success,Merry Christmas and “Happy New Year” Much love tone anall!

Note: I wrote this poem as a tribute to each person who touched my life through Christ this past year. We all have different levels of faith but we can ALL learn from one another through our stories and poetic language. The ultimate goal is that we strengthen and encourage one another through our Savior Jesus Christ. There were many others who touched my life that are not mentioned here. Perhaps you are one of them. If so, please don’t hesitate to communicate through Authors Den. God willing, we can continue to share and learn from one another once again. Love and Peace be with you! Shalom!

 Reference: Proverbs 27:17 (NIV) As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.”

This is very good of you, John.
What fascinates me about being here on the Den is the diversity of writing. Some poems make you catch your breath, for others, tears come to my eyes, and some just leave you with a wonderful sense of well-being. Then there are those that require that wonderful perceptual shift that stretches the mind.
Merry Christmas and Blessings,
Christine

John, thank you for noting the story - The Boat. I look forward to reading the works of every person you listed. Thank you also for this timely list of inspirations - just in time for Christmas and the start of a new year. When it comes right down to it, I'm convinced that no one should enjoy Christmas as much as a person with faith. They not only love it because of the jingles and jangles, the sled bells, the presents and the wrappings, the holiday movies, the music, but they love it because the Savior's birth is being celebrated. What a huge bundle of love people of faith enjoy over and above the commercialization of the holidays. Your sentence, "The ultimate goal is that we strengthen and encourage one another through our Savior Jesus Christ" nails it. The Love of Christ. Pay-it-Forward. Thanks again for sharing and God Bless.

Thanks for the mention, my friend. And you've pointed out a few A.D. members that I haven't read, and will definitely check out.

And Merry, Merry Christmas and Happy, Happy New Year to You and Yours.
Reviewed by Paul Berube 12/22/2011
Thank you, John. Yet I have to agree 100% with what Joyce wrote. The inspirations and the words come from God. I simply consider myself one of his many, many instruments and humbly thank Him for the opportunity to serve. I pray you have a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year and may God bless.

JOHN...I HARDLY KNOW WHAT TO SAY, FOR, IT IS NOT ME...I AM MERELY AN 'INSTRUMENT', BUT GOD...HE DOES IT ALL. THERE ARE TIMES WHEN I WILL RE-READ WHAT'S BEEN WRITTEN AND I 'KNOW' IT WASN'T ME. SO, I GIVE GOD ALL THE GLORY AND THE PRAISE AND I THANK YOU FOR YOUR KIND APPRECIATION OF 'HIS INSPIRATIONS'. I HAVE SOME OF YOUR SHARINGS SAVED, JOHN; 'OUR DAILY BREAD', 'WHO?', AND 'OUR HOPE'...GOD HAS USED YOU TO TOUCH MY HEART MORE THAN ONCE AND I THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING HIM TO DO SO. GOD BLESS YOU AND MUCH LOVE & FAITH TO YOU AND YOURS.
JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS
