Is There Life After Death (Short Story) - 1/1/2012 7:20:41 PM
There is life after death and your story happens to many of us - and we cannot understand them but they do happen. I had the same experience with my brother and i know God had a purpose for giving him a second chance at life... to receive Jesus Christ in his heart before his 2nd death.
Why Does God Let bad Things Happen ? (Short Story) - 12/25/2011 6:14:09 PM
It is "only" my perceptions that something is "bad", at least i tell myself this. some "fear" i can not understand...where there is torture and/or extreme brutality, but it is fear all the same. the rest i still look to understand. i know in my persistence i will see the Light.
A Penny For Your Thoughts (Short Story) - 12/6/2011 4:34:03 PM
This true story is precious! I like to relax into the mystery, myself, and try to choose meaning and joy in each experience. You are right about having a message here from above I am sure! (But I'm not sold on the everything happens in three's idea :) )
A RAY OF HOPE (Short Story) - 11/19/2011 8:07:30 AM
a strong and fearless mind will always find away thru the tunnel of despair...to find the light of Hope...as possibly did this mind in hearing three knocks! good story.
Is There Life After Death (Short Story) - 11/3/2011 3:23:13 AM
I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOUR LAST LINE WHOLEHEARTLY! THERE ARE MYSTERIES THAT GOD, FOR HIS OWN SUPERIOR AND INFINITELY VERY WISE REASONS, HAS NOT REVEALED TO ANY MAN. THANKS FOR SHARING. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...

A Penny For Your Thoughts (Short Story) - 8/19/2011 1:57:06 PM
Yes i agree, for me...luck is the human answer to God's hand in our lives.
A Penny For Your Thoughts (Short Story) - 8/19/2011 6:45:17 AM
I enjoyed the thoughts you shared. It is a wonder how the Lord brings good things into our lives in most mysterious ways.
How Bunny Made The Grade (Short Story) - 6/6/2011 6:00:32 AM
lovely story. a wonderful children's story even. what a talent- to share a message within the confines of a delightful story.
Is There Life After Death (Short Story) - 5/30/2011 2:57:37 PM
There is a science of life. It is as evasive as life itself. Thank you for sharing this story, perhaps not an uncommon story, just a not-so commonly shared story.
Why Does God Let bad Things Happen ? (Short Story) - 5/6/2011 3:33:26 PM
God is not real because I believe in Him. I believe in God because He is real! "In the beginning, God....." Genesis 1:1
Is There Life After Death (Short Story) - 12/13/2010 12:14:53 AM
This is a GREAT story. I know some things - we cannot see hate and we cannot see love but we know that they are with us and these feelings profoundly influence our lives. Who are we to think that everything that is real must be seen? We have proof that this is NOT true but sometimes we are blind to see that God's real plan in our lives is truly invisible to our naked eyes! I guess that is why God provided us with a Bible to help us see truth in plain English. Still, some rather go though life being blind. Amen!

A RAY OF HOPE (Short Story) - 12/13/2009 6:05:29 PM
IT SEEMS GOD REACHED OUT TO YOU TO GIVE YOU WHAT A 'RAY OF HOPE'....AN ENCOURAGEMT TO GO ON. GOD IS JUST THAT WAY...HE DOES 'IMPOSSIBLE' THINGS THROUGH HIS 'MESSENGERS'...HIS ANGELS. THANKS FOR SHARING THIS INSPIRING STORY THAT I ENJOYED READING. GOD BLESS YOU AND YOURS. JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS

A RAY OF HOPE (Short Story) - 12/20/2008 9:10:44 AM
I just read your story and I got goose bumps and a lump in my throat. I will be reading more of your writings in the very near future and will track you as well. Hope.... faith, hope and charity, and the greatest of these! Charity/love. Joy comes in the morning and in your case at 6:00am.

I just read your story to my husband, Mike. Our heart is broken for you and your wife to suffer such losses. And yet, your faith has been proven and your hope is sure. We pray for better days in 2009.

Very nicely expressed words with due honor to the women.
I agree with the author, "Women and Men , so different yet so dependant on each other."

Seasons Come and Go an Unusal Comparison (Article) - 2/27/2012 9:35:14 AM
Indeed, I’ve enjoyed the reading of this lovely article; you’ve truly done a great job here, Larry! It has nudged my spirit to say this: We should all be leaving some sorts of legacy, in this world before we’ve departed, yet only by a legacy of righteousness shall souls find rest. Then most of all the other things could just be pure vanity. No wonder it is written in this way: “Fear God, and keep His commandments: for this is the whole duty of man” Seeing as, in the end, DEATH is sure just as LIFE is real!
Seasons Come and Go an Unusal Comparison (Article) - 2/26/2012 2:59:26 PM

The Women In Our Lives (Article) - 9/2/2011 12:25:03 PM
This is an incredibly great blog. In spite of the challenges with the women in our lives, they're all worth it. Better to have such challenges than not.
I'd like to quote something from a great author, writer, husband, and family man you may know: ".... God Bless the women in our lives who inspire us, encourage us, support us, comfort us ... and last, but not least ... ... love us." L.D. Matthews, Authors Den, 2011.

A Christmas Message (Article) - 4/13/2011 7:41:55 PM
I strongly recommend everyone who reads "A Christmas Message" to read the last paragraph two or more times. Jesus' teachings will give you the strength to be honest even if there is no one watching you. To tell the truth regardless of a negative consequence to you personally. To expect nothing in return because you did it because you are grateful to Jesus for dying in the cross in your place. His teaching will help you keep your sanity in an insane world, as Larry puts it bluntly.
I Love Selling Nova Scotia (Article) - 4/13/2011 7:30:53 AM
Thanks for sharing a bit of Nova Scotia with us. Enjoyed your thoughts, photos, and little paintings. I have not been to Nova Scotia in many years, since the days of my biblical studies in Canada. Nice to be reminded again of it's unspoiled beauty.

A Christmas Message (Article) - 11/29/2010 5:22:37 AM
Your sincerity in sharing a little of your life is touching. You have been "through" a lot, notice the emphasis on through. Thank God when so many difficult and heart breaking things are behind us. If Jesus had not come, so many of us could not have come through the things we have. Merry Christmas
Life You Have To Live It (Article) - 10/29/2010 8:18:17 AM
This was not for me to read at work! No "time" for tears, but sappy old me has found them falling! I am way toooo emotional for these writes of yours! Love you!!!!! :)
Life You Have To Live It (Article) - 10/29/2010 7:44:11 AM
Excellent insights and admonitions. But, as you wrote in the article,
these things we all should know to some extent at least, we must apply.
Life You Have To Live It (Article) - 10/29/2010 3:45:11 AM
Some words from a heart that has expressed just how life has impacted his life, and sharing the greatest of his talent, "TIME" wish we learn before its too late, thanks for your written thoughts..
Nova Scotia Farms (Article) - 10/23/2010 1:48:15 PM
I have to get used to calling you that. I enjoyed your article about Nova Scotia farms and the shifts in the farm based economy. It captured my attention because I spent some years in biblical studies in Canada, and had the privilige of traveling to Nova Scotia and speaking to a large convention of young people while I was a student
in Eastern Ontario. Glad to know that some re-grouping is taking place by local farmers and the demand for the farm setting by young people who want that kind of life style.

A lot of common sense, to know the precious gift of time is a special blessing from the Lord, and a reminder to treasure each moment. thanks for sharing an hopefully many will be touched by your wake up call.
Is The Internet Good or Bad (Article) - 3/9/2010 7:47:35 AM
Many of your words written make sense, there is always the good, and bad with the advantage of new ways to explore, but as always we must always heed the good, and hopefully those who visit evil, will be overcome with goodness

Talking About God (Poetry) - 7/9/2015 9:52:37 AM
No need to explain, Luke. We all need to do, work, invent, instruct, compose, sing, dance, show, tell, explore, sail, fly, opine, learn, and become. The rest will take care of itself.

In The Moment (Poetry) - 6/13/2015 11:29:16 AM
I often spend a lot of moments just thinking, doing nothing. Are those moments lost? I don't know.
In The Moment (Poetry) - 6/13/2015 4:53:49 AM
Reading your poem was "a moment". I am always amazed at how very little we are in the moment. Thanks for sharing.

A Man's Best Friend Jessie (Poetry) - 4/26/2013 5:57:21 PM
One of the hardest things to do, but sometimes the kindest, is what you did for your precious Jessie. I've had to say goodbye that way, and oh, it hurt me so bad! But not them, they are freed from their pain, and I know Jessie felt nothing but gratitude that you had the courage to do the right thing for her.
There Is No Magic Pill (Poetry) - 3/8/2013 6:11:19 AM
Wise words, well penned.

And I Read A Book (Poetry) - 2/17/2013 8:42:59 AM
When I was seven I couldn't wait to go to the library to read Dr. Seuss. One of the books contained a lesson about how consumption can destroy the earth through overproduction of a good thing. That reminds me of the admonition, “Go forth and multiply.”
And so, we are seven billion strong and destroying our earth because we believe in a book.

A Dreamer or A Floater (Poetry) - 12/3/2012 9:24:35 AM
Couldn't have written it better myself. That picture brings back memories of a half-mile ride through autumn trees on a calm, warm afternoon. That kind of floating sure is good for the soul.

And They Look At Me (Poetry) - 11/25/2012 11:10:02 AM
I just read my twin brother's auto-biography about his cars. When he wrote about the troubles I had with our cars in our teenage years, I had forgotten all the scrapes my father got us out of by being there as a strong figure to overcome the stuff we got into.
Having read that, I don't envy your position as the eldest (I am the eldest as the dominant twin) without a father to back you up. I know your mother stuck up for you whenever she could, but a father can have some real clout.
Your brothers are going to love this.

A SIMPLE POET (Poetry) - 5/20/2011 6:25:40 PM
Please feel my strength called faith
You have to seek to find your own
Amen! I look for the signs everyday and I have been blessed with ability, however slight, to see some things before they come. Of course it's always a series that I have to put together like a puzzle but the ultimate ending is how amazing God's message is and if you look closely, pay attention, you will find your signs. They are every where, not the media however. I liked this simple write from the soul, heart and your essence shines throughout. loved it.

You vividly portrayed the life of the fisherman. In particular the life of the lobster fisherman, I was right with you and visualizing what you were saying in this poem. I was reminded of some of the episodes of "The deadliest Catch" on TV. But you brought in the sacrifices that have been made and the sometimes sorrowful results of their trips at sea

SOMETIMES I WONDER (Poetry) - 8/26/2010 12:06:52 PM
I liked the poem, quite thoughtful in it's design. Obviously you took time to really think about this experience called "life". I was
struck by the line "faith becomes convincing as we fiddle with life's dials".
Unconditional Love (Poetry) - 8/26/2010 3:05:34 AM
love that express emotions, but true love is found in God who gives us His love when we do not know how to love....

Where Does God Go ? (Poetry) - 12/20/2009 12:07:19 AM
Dear Sir...I have held that same question close to my heart for near a year after my wife's passing from cancer. I wondered why GOD forgot me...I wondered why HE did not heed my suplications as I lay upon my face pleading that HE take me, and not her. I wondered whjere did GOD go? I wondered why did HE forsake me and leave me here alone without my love....and I wondered why if I/ we loved HIM as we did....why did HE no longer love me. Why did HE leave me heare all alone...but sir...HE never left, but was only shaping me...thank you for this beatiful pice...

Very peaceful and comforting write Larry. I know a man who had a heart attack at the age of 39 and was revived after a few minutes of "death". He told me not to fear death, as wherever it was he went, was so blissful it was beyond imagination! He said he felt deflated when he was brought back, but he knew he had no choice somehow.
