The Gods We Know

November 22nd, 2017 by G.

There is an object of wonder. It is vast, complex, and heart-stoppingly beautiful. It is miraculous. It was created by the very God of GodsHimself. It is ever in His thoughts.

But this creation, lovely and holy beyond words, now fades into the background. It now becomes the setting for even greater beings, so much greater that this ineffable object is only worthy, barely, to be their stage.

Two Grooms

November 09th, 2017 by G.

Sides heaving, a spent horse staggered into a stable with two grooms.  One groom sprang to the horse’s side to care for it.  He dried and brushed and watered the horse before going to turn it back out to graze.  Meanwhile the other groom was nowhere to be seen.  Suddenly a shot rang out.

The other groom had killed the wolf which had chased the horse to the stable.

The Shepherd’s Wolves

August 24th, 2017 by Patrick Henry

A shepherd was tired of chasing strays from his large flocks. Exemplary punishment was needed, he decided. He ordered his dogs to kill the next sheep who strayed. But his dogs had been raised from puppies with the flocks. They tucked their tails and slunk away and would not.
