Anger

Proverbs 29:11

A fool gives full vent to his anger, but a wise man keeps himself under control.

I Corinthians 13:5

It (love) is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

Proverbs 29: 22-23

An angry man stirs up dissension, and a hot-tempered one commits many sins. A man’s pride brings him low, but a man of lowly spirit gains honor.

James 1: 19-20

My dear brothers, take note of this: everyone should  be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, for a man’s anger does not bring about a righteous life that God desires.

Psalms 4: 4-5

In your anger do not sin; when you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent. Offer right sacrifices and trust in the Lord.

Galatians 6:9

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

Psalms 13

How long, O Lord? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and everyday have sorrow in my heart? How long will my enemy triumph over me? Look on me and answer, O Lord my God. Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death; my enemy will say, “I have overcome him”, and my foes will rejoice when I fall. But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation. I will sing to the Lord, for he has been good to me.

Escape Artist

 

 Escape Artist

Manifestations of manipulation

A simple lock and key

Entangled in contemplation

Zealous to be free

Trapped, locked up tight in satanic devices

Taking God-given desires, shifting them to vices

But an escape artist am I

Slippery, silent and slick

No knot I can’t untie

No lock I cannot pick

Pinned, bound up fast in your misinterpretation

Trying to find my freedom from the exclusive alienation

Contortions of body, heart and mind

Flexing, bending my way loose

The exit not so hard to find

When you already know the ruse

I Started a Publishing Company

A huge step for a friend of mine. Very happy for Joshua.

Greetings.

It has been a very busy few months. Today, I took an epic step of achievement for myself and I wanted to share it with my WordPress friends.

This morning, I received my business license to begin my own publishing company! Whaaaa

Crimson Edge Publishing Companywill be specializing in Fantasy, Science Fiction, Dystopian Fiction, Historical Fiction, and Tabletop Game Guides. It will not be a vanity press or self-publishing company. I will be spending the next year focusing on promoting a handful of publications through Crimson Edge, while smoothing out the edges [see what I did there] to be prepared to provide the best service for upcoming authors. Starting January 2016, Crimson Edge will be accepting submissions from new authors. [So…start on your manuscripts now!!]

There is more but I am going to have to hold out for now. Please share the website, follow the

Brentwood

Brentwood

            I grew up in Gulfport, the second largest city in Mississippi. However, it was not so hard to find rural pockets in our day to day. Our neighborhood was surrounded by nature, woods in which we would built forts and hide from one another, ditches to discover pollywogs and crawfish, and a canal to master our swimming. These patches of trees and bramble were pockets of solace, tiny little havens where we could escape the monotony of our everyday. Here we could let our imaginations run rampant; we could hide from the world around us. My friends and I would play for hours in those woods, and then clean ourselves in the canal that ran alongside our neighborhood.

We were boys becoming young men, and it was not long before we felt the need to challenge ourselves. The canal was approximately one hundred yards in width, and we had never tried to swim across it. My parents had warned me of deadly undercurrents, and we had seen the alligators with our own eyes. However, there was some primal instinct that made us all believe that something would change if we could swim across that canal. There were five of us that decided to take the plunge that day.

I was the second of the group to stumble onto the sands of the opposite shore of the seaway. I was still on my hands and knees, trying to catch my breath, when I heard the cries for help. One of my friends was in the middle of the canal, and he was panicking. He was grabbing and pulling the two boys swimming next to him. I immediately dove back into the water. I got close enough to talk to him and calm him down. Together we bobbed back to our little haven. For nearly an hour, we were all too tired to even speak. The five of us sat on the sand in abject silence. Something had certainly changed for us that day; our pride had been eroded by the water of that canal, and we understood the fragility of our existence.
