A Ghost's Retribution (Short Story) - 5/26/2015 6:57:30 AM
I sat down an did the word count on this one as my grandfather who is a 1st generation born in the United States from Italian Family; this me thinking about this part of the word. I did a word count on this and surprised you're not published with this -- would it be okay for me to publish this as I have published a few writers from over the years. Matt if you're reading this I am often the goto when writers on the Den want to be in an anthology or two. I had been published for a true ghost story myself. Christians don't like to openly talk about ghosts but I had done so since writing fictional ghost stories in real haunted places. Shoot me a message when you see this because is too good not to publish.

Ichabod - A Story of Discontent (Short Story) - 5/26/2015 6:51:27 AM
I've written a Gothic Horror story called The Ichabod as in no revival is the term for it; the term for Ichabod came from Washington Irving's character Ichabod Crane from The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow. So I do wonder how much did Washington Irving drew from Christianity in some parts. Have you tried your hand at doing a short story where you speak freely? Interesting though I don't venture in this era often.

Ichabod - A Story of Discontent (Short Story) - 3/29/2015 8:03:19 AM
Cynthia...well written and I liked the way you proposed the outcome... "Man being greedy ends up as a needy " God didn't really forsake him, God just rearranged own priorities...hehehhe.. enjoy your day

A Letter to My Father (Short Story) - 6/27/2012 6:43:23 AM
Beautiful letter, Cynthia! Well done! (((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Texas, Karen Lynn. :D

A Ghost's Retribution (Short Story) - 12/10/2011 6:18:23 PM
Thank you for this interesting historical writing Cynthia. You have inspired me to release a short story about "Reflections of The Great Depression." John Michael

A Ghost's Retribution (Short Story) - 7/4/2011 8:41:42 AM
Cynthia, A long time ago I spent four wonderful days in Manila. I was only able to take one side trip to Pagsanjan Falls, but enjoyed it immensely. Your story is so immense (like a great historic novel) that perhaps it should be turned into a book. It is so sad to see how war affects us all and turns some of us into people we should not be. I was expecting one of those hokey ghost stories, but I find your honesty in this story very believable. Thanks for sharing your heritage with us. Ron

A Letter to My Father (Short Story) - 5/6/2009 5:18:39 AM
Happy Belated Birthday to your Dad and thank you for sharing his birthday with all of us. May your family find strength through God's love and grace and know that in the midst of darkness love is like a shadow guiding you to where you need be. When you find that place, the darkness behind you ceases to exist. All the best to you and your family and I hope that your Dad will have the peace he so deserves. Regards, Mableine

A Letter to My Father (Short Story) - 5/6/2009 4:14:22 AM
Pretended joy on the surface, unbearable sadness beneath. A letter to a father from a daughter that says, "I forgive you" and says, "You should forgive yourself". Possibly the last contact before death, or dementia overtakes the father. very well written, Cynthia. Mark Lichterman

Ichabod - A Story of Discontent (Short Story) - 5/3/2009 4:09:51 PM

Ichabod - A Story of Discontent (Short Story) - 5/3/2009 2:30:20 AM
Wasn't there a preacher that told his congregation that God had told him to ask for is own chauffeured-limousine? How gullible we are? Georg

Ichabod - A Story of Discontent (Short Story) - 5/2/2009 10:56:52 PM
Good story Cynthia. All too true in too many congregations also. God bless.

This is a wonderful present for your father Cynthia. Very well done indeed. God bless.

Corpuz (Short Story) - 4/2/2009 7:24:24 PM
Cynthia, This was a most heartrending story well told. While it is hard for us, especially mothers to forgive this man for what he did, it is easy for God. May we all be more God-like toward others, who have done horrific things, yet are still the children of God. Thanks for writing this for him. and for letting me read it. Micki Peluso

Corpuz (Short Story) - 3/30/2009 9:26:58 PM
Cynthia I believe that Gods forgivenes can reach behind prison walls . Your here story has a brilliant way of bringing that throug . Paul .

Corpuz (Short Story) - 3/11/2009 11:33:04 AM
Thanks for reviewing my poem. I read your story about Corpus as well as some poems but what struck me was that one of my daughter-in-laws has a jail ministry here in Rapid City and see just loves it. Some of her story's (though not quit as vivid as yours) are still very touching. God bless, Don

Corpuz (Short Story) - 3/6/2009 12:37:24 AM
Thank you Cynthia For asking me to read this amazing short story your writing is Heartfelt and saddens the reader's soul Crimes of such nature occur more often among the poor that are forced to sleep in close quarters, for those lucky enopugh To have a roof over their heads then the addiction of drugs adds to the insanity they are living through... Peace be with you William

Corpuz (Short Story) - 3/6/2009 12:26:06 AM
Cynthia, The story of Corpuz, is very stiring. I can see the compassion you have for souls. I pray that God deals kindly with Corpuz.we must indeed repent of our sins. and ask Gods forgiveness. and He will forgive. I know that God is dealing with your heart, for the souls of men. God will reward you for your faithfulness. great story. Your friend in Christ, Randy

Corpuz (Short Story) - 3/5/2009 11:32:18 AM
What a gut wrenching story! I'm sure you ministered to him and may be go to a better rest.

Corpuz (Short Story) - 3/5/2009 9:09:06 AM
Heartrending write, Cynthia; powerful in its content! Well done! (((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in America, Karen Lynn in Texas. :(

A Form of Arrogance (Article) - 8/14/2012 3:23:28 AM
Thank you for this wake up call Cynthia. I will send this out to others. Sometimes we don't know how people in other lands see us. We need a better representative. One we can feel good about and be proud of. A person who lets a "yes" be "Yes" and a "no" be a "No" and not change with the political wind. God bless you! You are in my prayers and you have been healed in the name of Jesus! Peace, love and multiple blessing in Christ, Amen John Michael Domino

Originality and Creativity are Gifts/Talents (Article) - 12/23/2009 10:56:38 AM
Exceptionally well done, Ms. Buhain. Your article should be used as a manifesto for all aspiring writers. Because of it ... I have had to stop, look, and think twice ... about stealing ideas from George Mateos (lol!). Regards ... Reginald V. Johnson

The Drug Addict Comes Home (Article) - 8/20/2009 12:58:46 AM
Hi Cynthia, Illegal drugs are by far the greatest threat to western civilisation today. It's almost as if Pandora's Box was somehow opened in the sixties, and we've never been able to put the lid on it again. Unless authorities get a lot tougher with drug pushers, this is a scenario that will be around for a long time. When you consider how many lives are destroyed or ruined by this evil trade, the death penalty is the only answer. Thou shalt not kill, but otherwise, where does it end? David Lewis Paget

Originality and Creativity are Gifts/Talents (Article) - 5/17/2009 6:08:42 AM

Thank you po for appreciating my work. So Filipino rin po pala kayo. At taga-Tarlac rin po. Thanks again. I pray for the success of your book.

Originality and Creativity are Gifts/Talents (Article) - 5/16/2009 3:28:56 AM
Excellent as always Cynthia. May I ask you why you chose to use "he" rather than "she?" Just curious! Your article reminds me of some of the charges thrown at Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Supposedly, he plagerized some material for his doctorial thesis, if Iremember correctly.

Originality and Creativity are Gifts/Talents (Article) - 5/14/2009 3:53:11 AM
If anyone plagiarize any of my works it wold mean to me that I am writing something good and worth to plagiarize, now...if I catch the SOB it will be another can of worms he/she will be opening! Georg

The Drug Addict Comes Home (Article) - 5/13/2009 4:41:51 PM
They spend the rest of their lives chasing the elusive dragon. Thanks for this Cynthia. Hugs, J'nia

The Drug Addict Comes Home (Article) - 5/9/2009 3:39:07 AM
Addicts, junkies, drugs depending, they have many names. When asked some time ago about the same theme I responded, "Drug-addicts are like when you ring a bell, once you do you can't unring it" Something happens in their brain, many billions of cells are destroyed and there is no repair to depression, violence bouts and hallucinations. Sorry is to say that once abused drugs will be not like a monkey on your shoulder but a golden dragon eating you guts. Georg

But Where's the Victory? (Article) - 5/5/2009 7:16:20 AM
Well said. I think George is quoting a maxim which happens every day and in many ways; it is easier to kill the messenger than it is to hear the truth. IH, J'nia

Thank You Friends at Authors' Den (Article) - 5/5/2009 5:13:23 AM
Cyntha, You will be in my prayers. I hadn't know of what happened, but our Lord will strenghthen you. Elizabeth

Thank You Friends at Authors' Den (Article) - 5/5/2009 4:22:33 AM
On this time of grief one shouldn't be alone, tears in solitude are the most bitter there is, a tear shared is a tear of blessing. Georg

Cynthia thank you for sharing this, we need to read more articles like this In Christs Love Michelle~

But Where's the Victory? (Article) - 5/2/2009 1:13:24 AM
I knew, long ago, of a preacher. He hadn't a temple, a church or a house of God, he simply when from town to town telling the people where was the good road and what His Father expected from them. They killed Him, because it was more easy than hearing the truth. Georg

Transubstantiation: From Wafer to a God (Article) - 4/27/2009 7:23:31 AM
Very good cynthia. Very informative. I have understood for some time now that the Catholic church is just the hidden cult of Dianna, and Dianna is named Mary, just to keep it hidden to this day. I thought as I read this that if the church maintains that it is Christ's actual body, wouldn't it hurt him "Christ?", being so literal and all. I was raised Protestant and though we were not taught against the Catholic church, many of us knew that it was demonic in origin. Enjoyed this read. blessings, J'nia

Transubstantiation: From Wafer to a God (Article) - 4/27/2009 4:16:17 AM
the good lord has given you a feast to eat. You can't eat it in one go it is to big, just eat it one day at a time. God bless, keep posting.

Transubstantiation: From Wafer to a God (Article) - 4/22/2009 5:54:45 AM
A religion, any religion, that caters in misconceptions and falsehood cannot proclaim to represent God. The bread and wine of the last super was symbolic and Jesus never said that it should be copied, reenact or for that matter...mimic! The Vatican are against divorce, but for a lump of money they can be persuaded to see the other way(most recently? see Monaco's divorce, and, if Henry VIII had given money to the Pope he would have been divorced from Catarina de Aragon and the protestants in England never happened) Pass the wine.

He Said He Wants to Be a Woman (Poetry) - 9/16/2012 11:12:13 AM
Cynthia, thanks for reviewing my poem "Your Burden." I thought I'd see if you wrote anything lately, but it's been a long time. Your voice was powerful in what you wrote. This one is so sad, but it does happen. It's sad that people obey their own thoughts and desires, disregarding what our Creator-God has said so emphatically!.

Inner Peace from God (Zechariah 2:5) (Poetry) - 8/15/2012 3:14:16 AM

Good work, Cynthia

My Island Far Away (Poetry) - 6/22/2011 8:52:31 AM
Your poem is lovely. I feel as if I have been on a wonderful escape vacation, enjoying the soft breezes, the hammock... the complete peace and relaxation one feels when lulled by the sea. Uh, oh... I guess it's time to return home to the humdrum again; may I visit your island once again soon? A wonderful, soothing and excellent read. Joy L. Hale

His Word Is Alive (Poetry) - 6/21/2011 6:39:54 AM

If I Knew The Cure For Cancer (Poetry) - 11/4/2010 5:47:49 PM
This is an excellent way that you explain the compulsion to share Jesus with others in spite of possible criticism. Down-to-earth, real Christianity! Connie

Change (Poetry) - 3/11/2010 2:54:09 PM
Dear Cynthia, you've written a simple yet beautiful piece of poetry which captured the reality of constant change. You're right, the past is our teacher to strengthen us for today and prepare us for tommorow. Peace and love in Christ. Kabayan too, (-: Sheri

The Pastor's Letter (Poetry) - 12/6/2009 6:23:05 PM
What a sad, sad story. It is true that satan knows how to lead us astray. Those in the ministry, I think, are especially vulnerable. We need to remember to pray for them, and they need to remember to avoid even the appearance of evil. Wise pastors will not meet alone with a woman. Connie

They Can Count (Poetry) - 12/6/2009 6:15:54 PM
Like Zach, I love to read about animals. Your menagerie has some special animals in it, and you obviously appreciate their intelligence and their hearts. You are probably the only one I know who has named a spider Sammy (or anything). Fortunate is the animal who lives with you. Connie

What Love Is (Poetry) - 10/15/2009 11:20:54 AM
Indictive in how one person goes about writing the word "Love", but in all aspects the tone is very much the same... only the reflection is carried out differently with each their findings of the meaning... Thanks for comenting on my work... or better said in our native tongue saying, "Salamat"... My aunt is from the same region as you... Good day...

His Word Is Alive (Poetry) - 9/27/2009 8:49:36 PM

The Pastor's Letter (Poetry) - 7/14/2009 1:51:55 PM
Malicious gossip ruins people's lives and far too many don't care to know the truth and shouldn't be judging anyway. Where is love? Where is there hope for those who have been married more than once, and not by choice. No one knows what goes on behind closed doors and no one should be pointing a finger. Blessings, Holly

Cynthia, A fine piece indeed, and as others have said the final stanza is so positive and so right. John

Memories (Poetry) - 5/22/2009 12:29:54 PM
Amen! Your last stanza says it all so well, Cynthia! Nothing comes from resentment and non forgiveness,the only one who hurts is the person who can't forgive. Love, Eileen

Excellent write Cynthia.

Not a Man (Poetry) - 5/20/2009 1:02:30 PM
Excellent poem Cynthia, you tell it like it is! Love, Eileen

Just Being Nothing (Poetry) - 5/20/2009 8:12:33 AM
This is great stuff here! Very powerful and well written. People really have been trained to endure in their bondage of self. They willfully ignore events around them thinking "just look out for myself, that's all that counts!" Until one day when the system moves against them, and there's no one left to care.

When We Close Our Eyes (Poetry) - 5/20/2009 8:06:26 AM
Very good poem indeed. It has been said that in order for tyranny to flourish, all that is required is for good people to do nothing!

Not a Man (Poetry) - 5/20/2009 3:04:05 AM
The value of a man is what is in his heart - I think that's very true.

Not a Man (Poetry) - 5/20/2009 2:00:39 AM
"...your words make our race cheap..." nothing more harsh could be said to a man, not a slap on his face, not a snort of contempt can go so deep into the two faces viper, scorned womans have a two edge vocal daggers. Georg

Not a Man (Poetry) - 5/19/2009 7:48:49 PM
Cynthia I love your writings and your boldness, a man is not a man just because he happens to be a male, a real man steps up to the plate In Christs Love Michelle~

Powerfully done, Cynthia. Your closing leaves much food for thought.

Wonderful prayer and such great words of wisdom. Liz

When We Close Our Eyes (Poetry) - 5/19/2009 7:25:38 AM
To be sure one never should close one's eyes, then the surprises will be not so horrendous as they are. People with closed eyes can pretend being blind, the blind can say they never saw it coming! Georg

When We Close Our Eyes (Poetry) - 5/19/2009 3:52:49 AM
well written--much to consider and to think about

Just Being Nothing (Poetry) - 5/18/2009 11:24:22 PM

When We Close Our Eyes (Poetry) - 5/18/2009 3:35:43 PM
"We pray Good will rise, In whatever we write; When we close our eyes, And know we have done right." Amen, Cynthia. Just one thing tho. Don't call them "our leaders." They are nothing but greedy a-- dictators in disguise. Our real leader is God. Well said, my friend. God bless.

Let My People Go! (Poetry) - 5/17/2009 7:25:39 PM

Yes I'm A Christian - Does it Bother You? (Poetry) - 5/17/2009 9:03:06 AM
Amen - don't still your pen, Cynthia. Doesn't bother me in the least - wish there were more of us willing to speak out for our faith. Others can, and it seems none condemns them - why is that, I wonder?!? Makes them uncomfortable?!? Well, their problem, not ours. :) (((HUGS))) and love, and KEEP WRITING, Karla.

Just Being Nothing (Poetry) - 5/17/2009 5:36:54 AM
Oh it is so wonderful not to be part of the herd. So well said. Thank you, J'nia

interesting write--it speaks of frustration with those ostritch types-well expressed

Let My People Go! (Poetry) - 5/16/2009 2:44:58 AM
Like that swain-flu the corrupted politics are expanding to cover the planet. That scourge, using to be just on a few far away and forgotten places, are now with us, like gangrene. Georg

Just Being Nothing (Poetry) - 5/16/2009 2:15:32 AM
"...superficial stands..." how many of those we see and hear every day, every hour? castigating with words the ones that have deserted from the herd. Georg

Yes I'm A Christian - Does it Bother You? (Poetry) - 5/16/2009 2:12:18 AM
Those that have firm convictions don't need to be aware of those that don't, God created jumping rabbits but man not necessarily need to be one, jumping from faith to faith. Georg

Yes I'm A Christian - Does it Bother You? (Poetry) - 5/15/2009 7:42:24 PM
aMEN, SISTA!! PREACH it, LOUDLY and BOLDLY! I'm with ya; I'm a CHRISTian, too, and am NOT ashamed of my faith!!

Wow, Cynthia! I'm not much into poetry, other than every now and then some words come to me, but this is strong! Very strongly worded and exceedingly well written. Your point certainly does come across. Mark Lichterman

Stubborn Love (Poetry) - 5/14/2009 3:47:45 PM
Cynthia, Great approach and point of view, the change of heart, the mind-altering experience when oneself is 'afflicted' and all the attendant feelings, hopes and desires. John

Lots of people loose their lives in war, for a worthy cause.Luckily i have never experienced war. A thoughtful poem milton

Fragging (Poetry) - 5/12/2009 12:31:58 PM
*tears* We have met the enemy, and it is us ... I've heard that quote, often, especially in "friendly fire" incidents like this - why those in charge should be on the front lines, but no, they hide like the cowards they are. :( (((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Words Like Pebbles (Poetry) - 5/12/2009 7:00:00 AM
So, so true! Funny that so many people wrote about words and the power that they can do this week... Maybe it is the theme of the week or something. hee, hee... Cryssa

Music Heals (Poetry) - 5/12/2009 6:58:11 AM
This has a melodic cadence that also soothes the heart and soul. My oldest daughter is away at college, majoring in voice. I miss her near constant singing... :~) You can hear her sing on youtube... Thanks for this beautiful reminder of the power music holds. Cryssa

The Eyes Are Windows (Poetry) - 5/12/2009 6:52:16 AM

The war's been on too long Far, far too long, with too many multiple deployments and far too many valiant soldiers suffering from PTSD, and I truly hope and pray they all return home soon.

Fragging (Poetry) - 5/12/2009 1:07:02 AM
So sad what happened. Having served as recently as 2004, I can't understand what would prompt a soldier into doing such a horrible thing.

Fragging (Poetry) - 5/12/2009 12:40:44 AM
Powerful poem here Cynthia, you packed quite a punch in a few words In Christs Love Michelle~

Words Like Pebbles (Poetry) - 5/11/2009 7:46:49 PM
This is so true....once released words cannot be taken back...for even words spoken in secret take wings and find the ear of those of whom they are spoken....James puts it best when he said that the power of life and death is in the tounge...we can choose to speak words of life and blessings or we can speak words of death....wonderful piece Cynthia. Allen

Words Like Pebbles (Poetry) - 5/11/2009 6:38:01 AM
I was told growing up "If you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all" If we would all just think before we speak! Enjoyed this uplifting and educational poem, Cynthia Doug

Words Like Pebbles (Poetry) - 5/11/2009 6:17:51 AM
True. They often cause a ripple which lasts a life time. People said awful things about my nose when growing up. It hurt so badly that I have my nose made smaller. I like it but wish I had kept the old one. Hugs, J'nia

Love truly is a most powerful thing, and it can truly do both good and bad.

Denying Love Can Make You Sick (Poetry) - 5/9/2009 3:31:14 AM
People react different to different feelings, some are kind, and some are selfish considering not to get hurt when hurting others. Love is a four letters word, four letters like "warm" or four letters like "jinx" depend on how much love is on the scales. Georg

Denying Love Can Make You Sick (Poetry) - 5/9/2009 3:20:17 AM
Thought provoking, Cynthia, and beautiful too.

This took me to Romans 1:32 - same destination. Truthful and real - poetry. Doug

The Death of Innocence (Poetry) - 5/8/2009 6:50:50 AM
Well said. It is interesting to me that humans have the ability to endorse something so inhuman by merely changing the name of it. eg: War= Peace Keeping Mission. Genocide= ethnic cleansing: murder=euthanasia: murder of an unborn child=abortion of product of conception: pedophilia=prostitution. etc., etc., etc.
