PostSubject: By way of an introduction (Ahem) ...   Sun Aug 19, 2012 1:16 am

Hello,
I have done quite a bit of writing in the past, but not so much in the last number of years. I have been in a couple of poetry anthologies, and helped to edit one of them. I have written devotionals and would love to do a book of them (I have published two short devotions); taught adult bible studies as well as to the very young, plus done a lot of newlsetter-type writing. I tend to under-rate myself; not in the 'true humility' sense, but, I think, in a 'stinking thinking' sense. I am looking forward to the fellowship that I feel is offered here, and the honest critiques. I would really like to get writing again.

I have recently experienced profound grief at the sudden death of my dear old dad. Among other things, I would like to explore how we may draw nearer to God in our grief, and come to know his true love for us better (perhaps better than ever). Above all, I desire to know the love of God, that passes all earthly understanding (as it is not earthly given), and express it well to others, that they may grow in Him, too, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, who came to take away the sin of the world.

I live in Ontario, am married and we have 2 daughters, one in her teens and the other now 20, both still at home.

I would like to close with this quote from The Pilgrim's Progress. It is the closing remark after the Pilgrim has conversation in the home of Piety, Prudence and Charity, where he then stays the night. It has become somewhat of a "theme" for me, and I think so beautifully expresses the hope of our journey:

"The pilgrim they laid in a large upper chamber, whose window opened towards the sun-rising. The name of that chamber was Peace, where he slept till break of day, and then he awoke and sang." Amen.

Every blessing to you all!

Hello Emjay,
Welcome to Christian Creative Writers. I'm so glad you joined us and that you are taking up your pen again to write. Praise God! It sounds like you have a lot to offer to others with your experiences. I know you will be a tremendous blessing. I love your reason for editing your post. It made me giggle. Isn't it just like a writer to let one little misspelling drive them batty like that?
