    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

Caught In a Cave In

I wrote this poem this afternoon.  I had a burst of inspiration and I quite like the outcome.


Went for a walk through the caves of my life,

Found rocks and webs of madness and strife.

A lake filled with memories I’ve tried to forget,

Moments in time I wished to reset.


Caught in a cave in, no light up ahead,

Life becomes stagnate, gloomy and dead,

Caught in a land slide, the walls closing in,

The war raged with chaos, a fight I can’t win.


Trapped in a cave of bitterness and suspicions,

Locked in by fear and my own lost ambitions.

Hands bloodied from digging, a futile attempt,

Do dig myself free of life’s strife and contempt.


Caught in a cave in, is there light up ahead?

Life bound in shackles, misery and dread,

Caught in a land slide, walls built high by sin,

The chaos advances, regret tumbles in.


Hope becomes despair, the darkness devours,

The dreams I once had tuned to misuse filled hours.

I cry out for mercy as chains bind my life,

My heart stabbed by hurt, I clutch at the knife.


Caught in a cave in, the void looms ahead,

Cries echo around from the past and the dead,

Caught in a land slide, the walls hem me in,

The laughter of chaos cries out, “We shall win!”


A glint of light sets the darkness a fire,

Illuminates my form stuck tight in the mire.

I voice calls my name in love and compassion,

My soul fills with hope, joy and new passion.


Freed from a cave in, now light’s up ahead,

My life, reborn shouts and mocks at the dead.

Freed from a land slide, the walls turn and run,

Chaos defeated the fight He has won.


Pulled from the caves of regret and lost time,

Pulled from the muck, on an up slope I climb.

Fears swept away by His almighty hand,

Heart healed from pain in triumph I stand.


Freed from a cave in, light leads me ahead,

My life is restored no more will I dread.

Freed from a land slide, no walls keep me now,

Covered by grace at His high throne I bow.
