• The Writer


    Hello! My name is Laura, welcome to my blog! I write weird stories, collect dragon plushies and stay up too late with my nose in a book. I am a wife, mom and child saved by grace. My hope is that you find encouragement here or at least a smile or too.
    God bless!

    We have come from God, and inevitably the myths woven by us, though they contain error, will also reflect a splintered fragment of the true light, the eternal truth that is with God. Indeed only by myth-making, only by becoming 'sub-creator' and inventing stories, can Man aspire to the state of perfection that he knew before the Fall. Our myths may be misguided, but they steer however shakily towards the true harbour, while materialistic 'progress' leads only to a yawning abyss and the Iron Crown of the power of evil.
    ~J.R.R. Tolkien

    "The only just literary critic," he concluded, "is Christ, who admires more than does any man the gifts He Himself has bestowed."
    ~J.R.R. Tolkien

    “Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory. If a soldier is imprisioned by the enemy, don't we consider it his duty to escape?. . .If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we're partisans of liberty, then it's our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as we can!”
    ~J.R.R. Tolkien

    "Writers who see by the light of their Christian faith will have, in these times, the sharpest eye for the grotesque, for the perverse, and for the unacceptable. To the hard of hearing you shout, and for the almost-blind you draw large and startling figures."
    ~Flannery O'Connor

    You write to communicate to the hearts and minds of others what’s burning inside you. And we edit to let the fire show through the smoke.
    ~Arthur Polotnik

    Words - so innocent and powerless as they are, as standing in a dictionary, how potent for good and evil they become in the hands of one who knows how to combine them.
    ~Nathaniel Hawthorne

    "There are forms of insanity that condemn people to hear voices against their will, but as writers we invite ourselves to hear voices without relinquishing our hold on reality or our right to control."
    ~Writing Fiction by Janet Burroway

    Christians have sometimes been suspicious of stories, because they really can influence you. If you read the Twilight novels once a month for a year, I think you'd be a different human afterward—and not a sparkly one.
    ~Nate Wilson

Rediscover (day 26): Take No Thought

Matthew 6

Verse 25: There for I say unto you, take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for you body, what ye shall put on.  Is not the life more than meat, and the body than food.

Verse 27:  What of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

Verse 32: …for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.

Philippians 4    

Verse 6: Be careful for nothing: but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to unto God.  

1 Peter 5

Verse 7: Casting all your cares of him; for he careth for you.

 

I think the verses speak for themselves. 

Don’t worry about tomorrow. 

Don’t worry about anything.  Instead, pray about it, lift it up to God.

Everything is in the Lord’s hands. 

He knows our every need and He will take care of them all.

Even though He knows what we need, He still wants us to cast our cares and needs on Him because He loves us. 

In everything, no matter what, give thanks.

If we worry about everything, do we truly believe that God is in control?  Do we really trust Him with everything? 

I’m still learning to completely give Him everything.  Every dream, every thought, every desire.  And trust me, it isn’t easy.  I have to do it each day, and sometimes each hour. 

By God’s grace, as a good friend reminded me, He is strong through my weakness.

Let’s give God our everything, and take no thought for tomorrow, because He’s got it taken care of.

God bless,
~Laura
