There really is a section at Barnes & Noble entitled Christian Fiction.  I chuckle every time I see it.  LOL

The Story

She couldn’t read another word,
each sentence cut closer to the bone,
each paragraph a dagger in her heart.

Yet she turned another page,
bracing for the next new assault,
tormented by her need to know.

Page after page,
 each chapter after the last,
anguish and travail,
agonies and lamentations,
until at last the story ends.

Then she puts pen to paper,
adding a new line,
a new chapter,
a new pint of blood,
to the story that is hers.

Write it Down - Let it Go

She couldn’t write them down fast enough,
the damnable words swirling through her head,
vestiges of life lived.

The cacophony of mentation churning in her brain,
each raw inkling struggling for attention,
each open canker aching for release
from her stricken mind.

Overwhelmed by her own bitter frustration,
tears of exasperation stream down her cheeks,
each a salty memory of a moment or event,
staining the ink on the hastily written pages.

Get them out! Make a record!
Of the celebrations,
Of the tragedies,
Of life.
Free yourself from the torment that is roiling,
dare I say, ravaging, in your soul.

Write it down – let it go.

President Obama awarded Vice President Joe Biden the Presidential Medal of Freedom. The highest award given to a civilian brought tears to Biden. 

That's my kind of president!!!
For the "Game of Thrones" fans out there.

"Great service don't tip black people" is written on the bottom of the receipt.  Anita's New Mexico Style restaurants in the state of Virginia, according to the website shown on the receipt. But we're past racism in this country.  Yup
He must have said that if it's on the internet.

Kaley Cuoco, aka "Penny" from the "Big Bang Theory," at the Golden Globe Awards.  There were lots of "golden globes" in attendance.  LOL
