3.The writer must avoid the two essential faults of creative writinga€”those that touch its essence and those that are accidental. 4.The plot should have a beginning, middle, and end, and thus resemble a living organism in all its unity. 5.The beginning and end of the story must be capable of being brought within a single view or theme. 6.Plot should be arranged on the complex plan, one in which change of fortune takes place through reversal of situation, recognition, or both and includes scenes of suffering. 8.Plot can consist of either a single thread or double thread in which an opposite ending occurs for the good and bad characters.
10.Plot should imitate actions that incite pity and feara€”pity as aroused by unmerited misfortune, and fear by witnessing the misfortune of a character like ourselves. 11.This character must be someone who brings misfortune on himself or herself, not through vice or depravity, but by some error or frailty.
13.The writer must focus on the action in the story and the part taken by the characters, and not drift off in several lines of action carried on at the same time. 14.The writer should put the scene before his or her eyes, as if he or she is an actual eyewitness to an event happening while writing.
Hero or heroine faces jeopardy that incites in reader emotions of sympathetic fear and anxiety as to the outcome of the situation. Plant the idea or action early, then develop readera€™s understanding by returning to idea or action later in story. Description is the attempt to represent reality by using language to present as directly as possible the qualities of a person, place, object, or event.
1)The Eye of Insight sheds new light by examining inscape, viewing the interior, the shape within the shape of a thing. 2)The All-Accepting Eye examines things that we might rather not see, discards the labels, and searches for the beauty in a flaw, beginning discovery with the thing and not its label.
3)The Gliding Eye observes things in movement through time or space or both, picks up details of the passage, recording birth and decay of sensation at the center of a spinning mind. 4)The Childa€™s Eye observes a thing with the seriousness of a child at play, in a focused, highly concentrated way, without hurrya€”like watching an ant crawl across the ground or observing a dung beetle move a mass five times its size and weight. 5)The Dream Eye fragments reality and reshapes it, perhaps using symbols to penetrate below surface appearances. The Naked Eye merges with the Imaginative Eye to create effective descriptiona€”The Big Picturea€”by making things from, not making things up. New idea built from comparison between two unlike things; tension between two actualities creates possibility, or new meaning. An Allusion measures a thing against a known cultural or memory tweak by referencing something the reader will know (Allegory, Conceit, direct or indirect reference to other texts (intertextuality), music, movies, etc.
Respond to each othera€™s work with respect, depth and thoughtfulness, in a manner that is civil and constructive. Over the Top a€“ material is presented in such a way that reader has a hard time believing the story.
Greenfield, Tennessee, a farm and factory town of twenty-two hundred in the statea€™s rural northwest corner, has never been more than a place between places, one in a long list of towns to be passed through along kudzu-choked U.S. It was in fact the railroad, and not the nearby Mississippi River, which was the prime mover in the delta land where I grew up. On September 2, 1979, two members of the Weakley County rescue squad found the raped and murdered body of eight year-old Cary Ann Medlin in one of the communitya€™s namesake green fields, not far from the Illinois Central tracks. I remember hearing news of her murder and running to find my first grade yearbook, hoping to fix her school days photo in my mind so I wouldna€™t lose it. It wasna€™t until twenty-one years later, long after Ia€™d left Tennessee, after Martin and Greenfield had became only places in my mind and that Lovera€™s Lane a Memory Lane that I began to consider the murdera€™s place in a childhood which I now see as violent in so many other ways. That first grade photo of Cary appeared over and over in the news in the months leading up to the Coe execution, along with another I found printed years before in the Nashville Tennessean and now reprinted as the newspaper re-capped the story: a shot of those rescue workers bent over the soybean plants, long-haired and t-shirted, hunting the girla€™s body.
Bob Cowser, Jr.'s first book, Dream Season, was a New York Times Book Review a€?Editor's Choicea€? and a€?Paperback Rowa€? selection and was listed among the Chronicle of Higher Education's best-ever college sports books. Above our heads, a banner of the eartha€™s children: an African boy with corduroy hair, a fur-muffled Eskimo, a golden girl from Holland. Six years later my first stockings were seamed and I thought of Miss Ranney while I sat on the edge of the bathtub shaving the pale brown hairs. Rebecca McClanahan has published nine books, most recently Deep Light: New and Selected Poems 1987-2007 and The Riddle Song and Other Rememberings, which won the 2005 Glasgow prize in nonfiction. There was a woman who died while I was in Daffiama; she was young and eight months pregnant.
Jillian Schedneck taught Literature and Creative Writing at the American University in Dubai for the 2007-2008 academic year. Sitting on the edge of her bed, with legs dangling and shoulders slumped, my six-year-old stares at the wall in a trance. She moves to the beat of her own drum, but once in the car, I settle into the morning routine. As the overburdened stretch of I-95 south of the Capitol extends before me, with cars packed in every lane as we creep toward our northbound destinations, I cannot stop the seething anger and indignation that boils within me. Our passage onto the base is slowed at the gate by the forklift placing barriers in front of the gate shack. I look at her, and though I answer a€?yes,a€? I realize that I was late because I forgot to leave. Being a mother is not just something I do; it is who I am, who I should have been, and who I always want to be. On the way to work, I listen to the news, but then I turn it off and just listen to the sound of my breathing. During my first sixth months of recruiting duty, workdays lasted from 0700 to 2300 Monday thru Friday, and from 0800 to 1800 on Sunday.
Making all those a€?numbersa€? was occasionally impossible, especially the a€?three appointments for the next day.a€? The recruiter had to contact the staff non-commissioned officer in charge and report his numbers before securing. Create Scene, driving home, reflecting on the hours spent on the road as a recruiter and the nastiness of the bars carried on Na€™s clothing into the cara€”describe car: At the end of that night, I went home exhausted, sweaty, and smelling like the smoke from the bars, an odor I despise.
Create Scene: Pulling into the driveway at 0200 all I could think of was getting a shower and going to sleep. Deodorant soap replaced the smell of sweat and cigarette smoke from my body, but the taste in my mouth was getting worse.
A recruiting SNCOIC doesna€™t want his recruiters getting caught with their integrity down but he is willing to risk it to make mission.
This is a separate story inside this storya€”N is avoiding the real story by ending with this: Anyway, rumor had it the old man had assaulted a recruiter in Georgia and the Colonel just moved him to a new duty-station, in Daytona Beach, Florida. Like I said before, you have real talent, so dona€™t think badly of your writing when you see my comments. One of the most important things you can do, is to take this piece and determine what is summary and what is scene.
When you create your timeline, start with placing the major events in this piece on the line first. Being assigned to recruiting from my usual job as a criminal investigator was both good and bad. Getting back to those tasks based on statistics, stay with me now as I get through how the numbers worked out. I talked to those people either on the telephone or in person, what we called daily activities.
When I returned to my desk from the bathroom, the old sergeant was heading out the door with his Bible. This was the guy I had to call every night and get approval to secure, to leave work and go home at night. After almost five hours of talking to people on the phone and going out and talking to people at malls, stores and various other public places, I felt done for the day.
Dragging ass, I continued to approach people around 7-eleven stores and such, acting like I just happened to be stopping by on my way home from work.
After ironing out the details and writing down his contact information, I finally left the musty tavern and drove home, exhausted and sweaty. The glowing numbers on the clock said it was a short night before I had to get back up and start another recruiting day. Born and raised in a small town in the South, David Charles joined the US Marine Corps as a teenager during the Cold War period.
In an effort to deal with this confusion, this record relies heavily on the Genealogies of Connecticut Families from the New England Historical and Genealogical Register, Vol. It seems quite probable that the son, Richard II, who inherited the tenement lands at Cholesbury, would be the father of Richard III, of Cholesbury, whose three sons migrated to Milford, Conn. John, the son of Richard I, remained on the farm at Dungrove long enough to be the the executor of his Mother's will in 1565, and as the overseer of his brother, Henry's, will dated January 2, 1599.
Still there were other Baldwins, from the same area in Buckinghamshire, England, who came to Milford, Connecticut at about the same time. There was at least one other Richard Baldwin born in Milford at about the same time as the one listed above, and who was a nephew to the above Richard. It is possible there were other Richard Baldwins in Milford at this time, but no others can be found in the records who would be anywhere close to the age of Ann Warrups. Ann Warrups resided with her Father, Chicken Warrups, at Greenfarms, between Westport and Fairfield and about 12 miles southwest of Milford. The Indians continued to move farther inland and set up new settlements only to have white settlers follow them and either buy, or take, their lands. This couple had at least three daughters: Mary, Caroline and Rebecca, and one son, John Baldwin II. Josiah Bearce II, probably died in New Milford, Connecticut, in late 1787, at almost 67 years of age. Before the colonial period, Connecticut had a large Indian population but most of the tribes were small, autonomous villages and not well organized into federations.
The Mahican Nation, was a large group of Algonquian tribes living in the area of western Massachusetts and Vermont, and into New York as far west as the Hudson River. Being the reigning overlords of the area, the Pequots fought any group that tried to exercise any control over their newly claimed territory. Another point of confusion is the personage of Tatobam (Totobam, Tatobem) often given as another name for Sassacus. Sassacus ruled over 26 lesser sachems, some of which included the Mohegans (a subdivision of the Pequots, not to be confused with the Mahicans, from whom they had earlier descended, just east of the Hudson River), the Western Niantics, the River tribes and, at various times, some Long Island tribes. Among Woipequand's children was a daughter named Meekenump who married a Pequot War Sagamore named Oweneko. Prior to 1631, Europeans had spent little time in the Connecticut area, other than to sail along its coast. By 1634, the Pequots had still almost no direct contact with the English but were known by them to be at war with almost every surrounding tribe, and most especially with the Narragansetts and the Dutch.
In 1634, a Captain John Stone of Virginia, who had sailed up the coast causing trouble everywhere he landed, was fined 100 pounds and banished from Massachusetts. In July, John Gallop, while sailing his small ship by Block Island, came across Oldham's vessel crowded with Indians and no white men to be seen.
In late August, Massachusetts sent John Endicott, with ninety volunteers, to Block Island to avenge the murder of Oldham.
Sassacus's main village was at Pequot Harbor, (the present towns of New London and Groton, Conn.), with a second large village about seven miles east at Mystic. The colonists were aware of the reputation the Pequots had for cruelty and knew they were in for some rough times. Various stories are told of one Englishman, John Tilley, who was ambushed and tortured over a three day period, which included cutting off his fingers, toes, hands and feet, flaying his skin off and putting hot embers between the flesh and skin.
By this time, the English were outraged by the aggressive acts of the Pequots and all three colonies agreed to unite in a war against them. Connecticut decided not to wait for the troops from the other colonies and raised an army of ninety men under Captain John Mason of Windsor.
On Friday, May 19, 1637, Mason put his army on board ship and sailed east along the coast line. The next day, the ship approached Narragansett Bay, in Rhode Island, and three days later, the soldiers arrived at Miantonomoa€™s village.
After the death of Wequash, his younger brother, Cushawashet, took a form of his deceased brother's name and was thereafter known as Wequashcook (Wequashcuk.) In addition, he also took on the Christian name of Harmon Garret, (Herman Garret) by which name he is most often known in the histories.
After the conquest of the Pequots, Harmon Garret (Wequashcook), was appointed by the English to be one of the two governors over the residue of this tribe. Returning now to the Pequot War, the original goal of the army had been Sassacusa€™s main village but, coming from the east, they first approached the fortress at Mystic and Mason felt they should attack rather than risk being detected by the enemy before the battle began. The undetected English army surrounded the fort and at dawn, on May 26th, they marched up the hill to begin the battle. Shortly after the battle was ended, Sassacus, with his main body of warriors, arrived on the scene.
Munitions were low so Mason armed a strong rear guard to hold off the pursuing Indians and they headed for the ship. The invasion had been so unexpected and so devastating that the Pequots were completely demoralized. The Connecticut troops were allowed to return home as replacements arrived from the other colonies. To avoid being captured and killed by their Indian enemies, some of the remaining Pequots, who were still in hiding, sent messengers to Hartford to ask for leniency if they surrendered. Following the total destruction of the Pequot Nation, other New England tribes, even those which had assisted the English in this campaign, were so shocked at the total annihilation of their enemy, that many sachems, including Massasoit, sent delegations to Boston to assure the English of their friendship and to renew old treaties.
Uncas, who had been the most aggressive Indian in the pursuit of his own fellow Pequots, now got his wish of becoming the Great Sachem of what was left of that people.
Along the Connecticut River, and particularly in the area of present day Windsor, Hartford, Wethersfield and Middletown, were numerous, small, independent tribes referred to as the a€?River Tribesa€?.
Not wanting to alienate the English, the Mohawks would not barge into a colonista€™s home uninvited. The treatment the River Indians received from the Pequots was not much better and they were compelled to pay heavy monetary tribute to both nations or suffer severe destruction.


Rather than fight, Sowheag moved his people south to Middletown, where he built a fort, or castle, on the bank overlooking the River. Early in the morning of April 23rd, 1637, a small group of Wethersfield settlers was attacked by two hundred Pequot warriors, while working in a meadow on the edge of town.
Not wanting to open up more fronts in the Indian war, the colonists left Sowheag alone until the Pequot Nation was destroyed. Friendship with the English had not proven too valuable in the past and Sowheag could not see where their offer of friendship would help much now. As time past, some Pequots began to feel that the old hostilities must have been forgotten.
The only known children of Sowheag are: Montowese, Sequasson, Turramuggus, and a daughter, Sepannamaw. In 1675, the court provided a 300 acre tract of land on the east side of the Connecticut River near Middletown, for the heirs of Sowheag and the Mattabeseck Indians. Sowheag's son, Montowese, was a Sachem of a smaller tribe, just north of the Quinnipiac tribe, who resided around New Haven Harbor.
During the Pequot War, some of the Massachusetts Colonists marched along the Connecticut shore pursuing Sassacus.
Montowese, and his wife, spent the remainder of their days farming on the small parcel of land which still bears his name. It is logical to assume that Noh-took-saet may well have been the son of Epenow, although there is no proof of it. The fact that the Aquiniuh Tribe either sent to the mainland for Noh-took-saet to come and be their Sachem, or that he came on his own to claim the title, seems to be good evidence that he was the rightful heir to the sachemship after the passing of Epenow. In 1675, Metaark was "challenged in his rights by the person called Omphannut, who claimed he was the eldest son of the deceased sachem. The above described court case, between Metaark and his brother, (most likely a half-brother) occurred less than three months after the start of the King Philip War.
Over the next few years, Metaark saw the selling off of Indian lands to settlers and was quick to realize this would be devastating to the tribes. Following the sale of their lands, the local Indians were unhappy to find themselves as tenent farmers on what had always been their own lands. This still did not satisfy the local Indians who were convinced the document was valid and not a forgery. According to Franklin Ele-wath-thum Bearce (9), Isaac Siem was a Sachem at She-co-me-co, NY., perhaps as early as the late 1600's but at least very early in the 1700a€™s.
On the skeptical side one must ask: Why would the son of a Marthas Vineyard Island sachem travel all the way to She-ko-me-ko, NY to make a new home for himself? Probably the greatest indication of a tie between Siem and Marthas Vineyard Island is in the name of his two known sons, Gideon and Joshua Mauweehu (or Mauwee). In a list of his ancestors, Bearce also lists Noh-took-saet, although he does not say where, or how, he fits into the pedigree.
It may be supposed that, after marrying a Pequot and a Mohegan, Isaac Siem spent much of his life in south-central Connecticut. Gideon Mauweehu (Mauwehu, Mauwee, Ma-hu-wee-hu, Mayhew) was first known to lead a small following of Indians on the lower Housatonic River and held land around Derby.
As the English began filling up this part of the valley, Gideon first moved to Newtown and then to New Milford.
In 1744, the English were again at war with the French, and the conflict was extended to this side of the ocean.
Colonial laws at this time forbade the purchase of Indian lands without the authorization of the colonial government. For a short time all seemed well, with the English staying on the east side of the Housatonic and the Indians on the west. Land disputes continued between the two societies for the next five years, and in 1757 Jabez Smith was chosen overseer of the tribe. In 1764 Eunice Mauwee, daughter of Joseph Mauwee, and granddaughter of Gideon Mauweehu, was born. Gideon reached an advanced age and, after serving his people well all of his life, past away sometime before 1767, probably at Scatacook. Although the band of Scatacooks continued to dwindle and move away until by 1774 there were only sixty-two remaining in Kent, it was reported that during the Revolutionary War one hundred Scatacook warriors assisted the American army by sending military messages up and down the River by means of Indian message fires and drum beats. There is another theory, however, about the origin of Chuse's name that this author would like to propose. Joseph was married to Ann Warrups (called the 2nd, to differentiate her from her aunt, Ann Warrups 1st, the daughter of Old Chicken Warrups.) Ann II was the daughter of Captain Thomas Chicken Warrups, who was a son of Old Chicken Warrups. Joseph and his family lived on the most amicable terms with the white settlers for forty-eight years in Chusetown, during which time more and more settlers took up residence in the area. At the time when Joseph travelled to Scatacook, the Indians in that area were poor, hungry, and sick.
Not long after this Joseph Mauwee arrived at Scatacook and took up his residence in his father's tribe.
The petition lists the number of males in the tribe at thirty-six, females at thirty-five, and twenty of their numbers being children of an age suitable for attending school. Sarah Mauwee, daughter of Joseph Mauwee and Ann Warrups II, was born at Chusetown (Humphreysville), Connecticut, about 1730-40. As a young woman, probably living in the Canfield home, she had a baby fathered by Oliver Canfield.
As we’ve said around these parts many times before, we are truly living in television’s golden age.
By Myndi Weinraub On December 31, 2015 · Add Comment As we’ve said around these parts many times before, we are truly living in television’s golden age.
There are also four shows I can’t legitimately put on my list, because I haven’t yet watched them, but they’re in the queue and will be seen by yours truly very soon: Mr. If this was a list I’d made in the middle of 2015, FOX sensation Empire would have been near the top of it, but season two has fallen so far in terms of both quality and plausibility (even in soap opera terms) from season one, that the last three episodes that aired are still sitting on my DVR, awaiting my attention.
I’d like to dedicate the rest of my list to a compilation of the shows that consistently gave me joy in 2015, even though one is about prison and another focuses on a zombie apocalypse.
Answer: A Jesus loves us all with an indescribable, unfailing love that passes understanding. Answer: A We should love Him because He loved us enough to die for us--while we were yet His enemies.
Answer: A In a good marriage certain things are imperative, such as faithfulness to one's spouse. Answer: A The devil claims that to follow Christian principles is drab, dull, demeaning, and legalistic. Answer: A Christians must separate themselves from all things that are not true, honest, just, pure, lovely, and of good report.

My slightly larger hometown of Martin, ten miles north up Highway 45, took its name from tobacco plantation owner Colonel William Martin who donated land for the railroad bed. Cary had gone on a bike ride with her little brother twenty hours earlier, gotten into a strangera€™s Grand Torino and disappeared. Her stepfather worked in those days on the assembly line at the Goodyear tire plant in Union City, her mother as a nurse at a Jackson hospital, and before moving to Greenfield in the summer of a€?79 the family had lived for a time in Martin. As the state of Tennessee prepared to execute Coe for the Medlin murder (its first execution in forty years), I began to understand Bean Switch Road as a rutted track in memory which might run between me and many people I loved and respected, separating me from them.
Both Medlin and Coe are as dead as they could bea€”Coe for almost five years at this writing, Cary Ann for nearly a quarter century.
He is also the author of Scorekeeping, a collection of coming-of-age essays, and his essays and reviews have appeared widely in American literary magazines, including Missouri Review, Prairie Schooner, American Literary Review, Sycamore Review, Brevity, Sonora Review, Fourth Genre, and Creative Nonfiction. I checked the seams each morning as we stood facing the chalkboard, my hand across a place I called a pocket but she called your heart, and I pledged allegiance to a flag no bigger than my brother's diaper flapping on the line.
I fingered my Brownie badge and renewed my oath to help other people at all times, especially those at home. She has also authored four previous books of poetry and two books of writing instruction, including Word Painting: A Guide to Writing More Descriptively.
I didna€™t go to the funeral, but those who did said you could see the baby circling around inside of her, like a hand moving under a sheet. The first one fell with the Twin Towers, and as the clots of blood dripped into the toilet, I said goodbye almost thankfully, glad not to bring a child into such a world. Something is different, something has changed, and I search my body for signs that my baby is still therea€”check my breasts, my belly, the fluid in the toilet, and back again to the breasts, wondering if the life inside me has died. Not just any brown, but the kind you make with paint or too many layers of crayon when youa€™re a little kid.
I would have gone to the funeral and made them cut the baby out while it was still alive, instead of after it had died. Her essay a€?Circling,a€? which first appeared in Brevity, will be anthologized in Online Writing: The Best of the First Ten Years (Snowvigate Press, 2009). As she rifled through the box of pencils, Alejandra must have also been watching my backside as I bent over Todda€™s desk, pondering the thin line of flower-print elastic that clings to my waistline.

While we don't know his birthdate, he was old enough to have a daughter, Catherine, who married a German immigrant, John Rau, in 1721, and his oldest son, Gideon Mauweehu, was probably born about 1680-90. The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Netflix) — I’m so glad this weird and wonderful gem ended up on Netflix instead of NBC so it could thrive. BoJack Horseman (Netflix) — How can anyone really explain the strange and hysterical BoJack Horseman? Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (The CW) — When I saw the previews for this show, I was intrigued, but I never could have imagined what an absolute delight star Rachel Bloom would be in the role of Rebecca Bunch.
The Walking Dead (AMC) — Looking at TWD annually is always a little strange, since the winter episodes and fall episodes are part of two different seasons. The Goldbergs (ABC) — This show can be a bit formulaic, but it hits the right buttons for me.
Orange is the New Black (Netflix) — Once again, it’s hard to believe that a show about a women’s prison has become one of my favorite ways to spend some time each summer, but it’s the truth. Master of None (Netflix) — This one appeared this fall and vaulted to the top of my list for its creativity, instant likeability and the way it took only a few episodes to make me fall in actual love with Aziz Ansari. For instance, a young lady was reading a large book for her university's English literature course. If a family should ban all TV programs that exhibit or condone any of the above sins, there would be very little to watch. But in today's world, we are often disillusioned at the repugnant and irresponsible actions of prominent individuals. The fact of the matter is that unless one's lifestyle changes after conversion, the conversion most likely was not genuine.
At its close (1 John 5:21), Jesus warns us through His servant John to keep ourselves from idols.
Jesus said that the things of God are foolishness to the natural man because they are not spiritually discerned (1 Corinthians 2:14).
He would complain that there were no nightclubs, no liquor, no pornographic material, no prostitutes, no sensual music, no lewd books, no profanity, and no gambling. However, following Jesus means one thing to one person and something quite different to another.
Every principle, rule, law, or command of Jesus provides unbelievably outstanding blessings. Many Christians have two loves that divide the heart: love for Jesus, and love for the world and its sinful practices and pleasures. David leaped and danced before the Lord as an expression of praise for His blessings (2 Samuel 6:14-16).

More than a century ago now a conductor on a southbound Illinois Central Gulf train offered the town its name, noting the fields of winter wheat still green late in the year. Engineer Casey Jones lived 50 miles south in Jackson, Tennessee at the time of his legendary 1903 wreck, his modest house there now a museum.
By the time they found her tiny body atop a trampled swath of soybean plants just off Bean Switch Road, a notorious Lovera€™s Lane, the corpse had begun to turn in the late summer heat.
I was as sad as a nine year-old boy could be about the business I suppose, but Cary had violated that cardinal rule of childhood about talking to strangers, and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation had Robert Glen Coe in custody just three days later.
I sensed with a kind of strange excitement how the photo was an emblem of my childhooda€”the unmistakable heat, those men, something awful hidden just out of sight. We sang of mountains and amber grain, our voices always a beat or two behind the warped '45 spinning on the phonograph beside the globe on Miss Ranney's desk. Later that year, I was in Home Ec tracing my face shape with soap onto a mirror when the intercom crackled the news. McClanahana€™s work has appeared in The Best American Poetry, The Best American Essays, Kenyon Review, Georgia Review, Gettysburg Review, and numerous other publications.


Later I felt bad that I hadna€™t gone to the funeral, but I was never sure if my motivation was guilt or disappointment over missing such a spectacle. This one is taking its time, and I have nothing more than my intuition to tell me that ita€™s gone. Ia€™m still not completely sure, so I survey again, trying to find the feeling that was once there, that still comes back in little wisps, but seems mostly gone. You mix all the colors togethera€”the good colors and the bad colors too, just to see what will happen, and you come up with a muddy, greenish, sickly version of the color brown, a sort of chaos and confusion of life and lifelessness all blended into one, never to be separated into sky blue, tangerine, and sea foam again. I would have taken the dead womana€™s baby for my own, as a guard against the possibility that either of us would ever be alone, as a stone thrown in the face of death, as protection against this circling, this looking for something we both need desperately that is no longer there.
I consider asking him what the correct spelling might be, imagine him looking up at me with big, brown eyes, searching the details of my face for the correct letter, but decide to just tell him what he needs instead.
I nod solemnly, mentally adding another dress code violation to my long list of teaching errors.
Traffic is finally moving, and this idiot thinks the left lane is for pacing instead of passing. On the way to work, I listened to the news, but sometimes I turned it off and just listened to the sound of my breathing. Looking at my watch, I realize that the few minutes that I have been delayed will cost me many more. With my simple math skills, I conclude that including weekends, they rob me of at least ten hours a week.
My thoughts are focused on security, contingency operations, alternate network operations, and the myriad of requirements to overcome the obstacles presented by this occurrence. She knows something terrible has happened today and I dona€™t know how to explain it to her. Being a Marine is not something I do; it is who I am, who I have been, and who I will always be. The hands of time are moving again, but now I hear the slow, steady tick tock of each moment. She is also married to a Marine and has two daughters, ages 13 and 8.A She has served in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, and her husband has served in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. Once he cut his teeth guarding gates and on patrol, David became a Marine criminal investigator. Goodwin were appointed to resolve all differences and to demand that he turn over the Pequot murderers he was harboring. As much junk as there is produced by broadcast, cable and streaming outlets, there is just as much in the way of high quality, worthwhile programming. Between the nostalgia, the wit and the family friendly humor that manages not to pander, I look forward to this one each week. As good parents teach good principles to their children, so Jesus teaches good principles to His children.a€?B. Dishonesty of every kinda€”cheating, lying, stealing, being unfair, intent to deceive, slander, and betrayal.a€?B. When the daughter of wicked Herodias danced before King Herod, John the Baptist was beheaded (Matthew 14:2-12).
If Jesus came to visit you, what TV shows would you feel comfortable asking Him to view with you?
Jesus clearly states in Romans 1:14 that Christians, who represent Him and His kingdom, do indeed owe something to others. A converted person will find his greatest joy in discovering Jesus' will in everything and in joyously following where He leads. The Master is referring to anything that interferes with or lessens my love for Him--such as music, fashion, possessions, adornment, evil forms of entertainment, etc. When Jesus refers to conduct, He is laying down principles for those who are seeking to be led by His Spirit. And the apostle Paul said that if his eating of flesh foods offended somebody, he'd never touch those foods again (1 Corinthians 8:13). The only safe way to know what following Jesus means is to discover what Jesus says in the Bible on any question regarding right doing. The biggest lottery win in history pales into insignificance when compared to God's rich blessings to His obedient children.
When our lifestyle is as it should be, our example serves as a silent witness and we don't need to lecture anyone. Too many, it seems, wish to see how closely they can follow the world and still be considered Christians. As good parents teach good principles to their children, so Jesus teaches good principles to His children.B. Dishonesty of every kinda€”cheating, lying, stealing, being unfair, intent to deceive, slander, and betrayal.B.
After all, something has drawn you here, readera€”you want to know what it is the searchers seek among the soybean plants. Lawrence University, where he teaches courses in nonfiction writing and later American literature, and an adjunct member of the faculty of Ashland Universitya€™s Low-Residency MFA program. Our world was the Weekly Reader, hopscotch and jump rope, the only war the Cold One which America of course was winning. They lived only for my welfare, wrote notes about my progress and pinned them to my shirt, exchanged report card signatures.
McClanahan, who lives in New York, has received the Wood Prize from POETRY, a Pushcart Prize in fiction, and (twice) the Carter prize for the essay from Shenendoah. There is something about the way the breasts suddenly deflate, the way the body stops gurgling and humming, that lets me know I will continue to chase after the symptoms of another life in my body without ever finding what I am looking for.
This brown, this color I am, it sucks in the colors of crocuses, bananas, my husbanda€™s eyes, and it holds them tight, keeping them for its own but never changing, never brightening to a rich mahogany or surrendering to black. As my bitten fingernail zigzags over his sentences, I realize that even my fingers dona€™t match my image of a fourth grade teacher, who should be neat and composed, with a rosy complexion and trimmed, polished nails.
He grins back at me, but there is something about his expression, the penetrating, hooded brown eyes, that tells me he knows Ia€™m overlooking his other mistakes. She is currently working on a travel memoir about her experiences in the United Arab Emirates titled a€?Abu Dhabi Days, Dubai Nights.a€? Her creative work has been published in literary journals such as The Common Review, Brevity, and Fourth River.
Adding lanes in both directions just wouldna€™t have been right a€“ all that grass dividing the highway looks so much better!
Most of his career was in military law enforcement minus some out of specialty assignments, including three years on recruiting duty. She has a chance meeting on a New York street with onetime camp boyfriend Josh Chan, and feels inspired.
While the season had a definite story arc, there were several episodes that stood completely on their own. Notice these shocking statistics: A Catholic priest in New York said that three-fourths of the girls who have confessed adultery to him put the blame on dancing. In our day even secularists and non-Christians are speaking out against many of the TV and film productions. All other shows are probably unfit for Christian viewing.a€?a€?*(C) The Delegates of the Oxford University Press and the Syndics of the Cambridge University Press, 1961, 1970. And He solemnly warns that Christians who disregard their influence and example, and thereby lead people astray, will not enter His kingdom.
Remember that the world is brought into our lives through the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life (1 John 2:16). The natural fruit, or result, of a true conversion is to follow Jesus happily and adopt His lifestyle.
He also said that if he ignored the offended person's feelings and continued eating flesh foods, he would be sinning. Those who lovingly follow Jesus' commands will one day soon enter His kingdom (Revelation 22:14). Of course, parents do have a special responsibility to help their children understand how to follow Jesus. However, following Jesus' standards of conduct because I have been saved and love Him is never legalism. David's dance was similar to that of the lame man who leaped for joy after being healed by Jesus (Acts 3:8-10). All other shows are probably unfit for Christian viewing.*(C) The Delegates of the Oxford University Press and the Syndics of the Cambridge University Press, 1961, 1970.
She is not someone who must ask repeatedly for attention and good behavior, whose voice gets muffled in the chatter of children, who anxiously picks at her nails and tears at her cuticles until tiny red bumps appear. I finally allow myself to smile as I imagine the opportunity to place a full handed slap across the face of the Neanderthal that came up with that brilliant idea.
The central region was occupied by a large number of small individual tribes referred to as the River Tribes (sometimes called Mattabesecks, because that was the name of the most dominant subtribe.) The Housatonic River Tribes (as described in Chapter 12) lived in the western part of Connecticut.
He presses his sights and sounds upon us all and, unless we consistently refuse to look at or listen to what he offers, he will direct us into the broad way that leads to destruction.
This includes fornication, adultery, incest, homosexuality, perversion of all types, pornography, profanity, filthy conversation, off-color jokes, social dancing, degenerate songs or music, and most of what is shown on television and in movie theaters.a€?C. Satan has captured the eyes and ears of billions and, as a result, is rapidly turning the world into a cesspool of immorality, crime, terror, and hopelessness. Those who follow man-made rules will go astray and could be led away from His kingdom (Matthew 15:3-9).
People will see a Christian's light shine by his conduct, dress, diet, conversation, attitude, sympathy, purity, kindness, and honesty (Jesus' standards). We are not to bring the church down to erring human standards, but rather, up to Jesus' standards. Such dancing, or leaping, is recommended by Jesus to those who are being persecuted (Luke 6:22, 23).
This includes fornication, adultery, incest, homosexuality, perversion of all types, pornography, profanity, filthy conversation, off-color jokes, social dancing, degenerate songs or music, and most of what is shown on television and in movie theaters.C. And now these paragraphs lie before you like stands of trees, a deep forest of wonder and darkness whose mystery beckons. Each morning Mother locked my thermos and only Miss Ranney could loosen it, leaning over me in her ivory crepe blouse until the cap sighed once, then was free.
The rest of the orbit swirls out from there: King murdered the week of my senior prom, then Bobby in a hotel just miles from my school while I marched to Pomp and Circumstance, not knowing that within a year on a July night in the back seat of a Volkswagen, I would pledge what was left of my heart to a boy leaving for Vietnam while above us the tired moon finally gave in to a tiny man in gravity boots, planting an American flag. Shea€™s probably doodling on the desk, her long, dark lashes cast down as she tries to escape the demands of the classroom and enter into the world of her drawing. She is no longer a manipulative ten year old who pouts when she wants permission to draw hearts on the chalkboard or be excused to the lavatory for the third time in an hour. The show then unspools a mix of broad and witty comedy and musical numbers each week, as Rebecca settles in to a new job at a small law firm, fields questions about why on earth she moved there and tries to get close to Josh, despite his spitfire girlfriend. The heart that seeps through each comedy outing takes me back to the best family sitcoms of my youth, the style of which faded when kids got their own dedicated networks and writers were free from having to do much to entertain the parents. That night she stayed up and devoured the entire book exclaiming, "This is the best book I have ever read!" What changed her perspective? Christian behaviour is not to be decided by the feelings and conduct of the majority, but by Jesus' words from Scripture.a€?a€?*Reprinted with the permission of Macmillan Publishing Company from The New Testament in Modern English, Revised Edition by J. Many will feel saved at Jesus' second advent, but they will, instead, be lost (Matthew 7:21-23).
When a church lives, speaks, looks, and behaves like the world, who would ever go to it for help?
Dancing with those of the opposite sex (which leads to immorality and broken homes) and lewd dancing (such as strippers) are the kinds condemned by the Bible. Christian behaviour is not to be decided by the feelings and conduct of the majority, but by Jesus' words from Scripture.*Reprinted with the permission of Macmillan Publishing Company from The New Testament in Modern English, Revised Edition by J. Places where we would never invite Jesus to accompany us, such as nightclubs, taverns, gambling casinos, racetracks, etc.Let's take a few minutes to enlarge upon the dangers of popular music, dancing, television, videos, and the theatre. Ia€™m trying to ignore her insubordinationa€”she should be writing a paragraph like the rest of the six students in my after school reading classa€”but clearly another one of my tactics has failed.
In a moment, Alejandra has become a young woman learning how to manage the intimate details of our gender. Amy (Amey) Oviatt (who was born 10 Feb 1667 as the dau of Thomas Oviatt and Frances Bryan.) Richard was a cordwainer (shoe maker). Peanutbutter (the incomparable Paul F, Tompkins) is a dog whose also a famous actor and married to Diane. As in a good marriage, a Christian finds it sheer joy to do the things that make Jesus, the One he loves, happy.
When I am truly in love with Jesus, I will give Him the benefit of the doubt and do His will even if I do not always understand why. When I pass judgment on others, I usurp Christ's position as judge and become a miniature Antichrist (1 John 2:18)--a solemn thought, indeed! Converted pagans from overseas tell us that our modern secular band music is the same kind they used in witchcraft and devil worship! I turn around, ready to demand she sit back in her seat, prepared to be heard and heeded this time, but she is looking at me, wide eyed.
1st Hannah Bruen 3 (30) Oct 1663, daughter of Obadiah Bruen [and a niece to his step-mother, Mary (Marie) Bruen. The few who participated in the war usually did so on the side of the English, against their own people. The Bible says when I am truly born again, overcoming the world will not be a problem because a converted person will have the faith and trust to happily follow Jesus in everything (1 John 5:4). Refusing to follow Him because I am not clear on His reasons displays a lack of trust in my Saviour. God has provided for His people plenty of good music that inspires, refreshes, elevates, and strengthens the Christian experience.
When Jacob and his family rededicated their lives to the Lord, they buried their jewelry in the earth (Genesis 35:1, 2, 4). Those who cling to the world and its lifestyle will be slowly moulded by Satan to adopt his feelings and desires and, thus, be programmed to be lost.
The church must stand tall and with a gracious but firm voice call people to listen to Jesus and come up to His standards. Those who accept the devil's degrading music as a substitute are missing one of life's choicest blessings. When the Israelites were about to enter the promised land, the Lord commanded them to remove their ornaments (Exodus 33:5, 6). Those who follow Jesus' principles for Christian conduct will be changed into His image and prepared for heaven. When a hearer falls in love with Jesus and asks Him to control his life, the Saviour will work the miracles needed to change him and safely escort him to God's eternal kingdom. In Isaiah chapter 3, God clearly says that in wearing jewelry (bracelets, rings, earrings, etc.
The true Christian receives benefits from his heavenly Father that even the richest people on earth can never purchase. God asks His people to separate from Babylon (Revelation 18:2-4) and all it stands for--including the jewels that draw attention to self--and instead clothe themselves with the righteousness of Jesus. The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Netflix) -- I’m so glad this weird and wonderful gem ended up on Netflix instead of NBC so it could thrive. BoJack Horseman (Netflix) -- How can anyone really explain the strange and hysterical BoJack Horseman? There’s also three kids in a trenchcoat passing themselves off as an adult--a perfectly subtle Muppets callback--who are dating Princess Carolyn. The Goldbergs (ABC) -- This show can be a bit formulaic, but it hits the right buttons for me.
