A Farmer of Words


I want to be a farmer of words
I want to nurture words
I want to plant them in good soil
Cultivate them
Grow them until mature
Make them fruitful
Pick them and harvest them
Squeeze out their nutritious juices
Prepare them deliciously
Give them to those in need of
A good word

I want to begin a culture of
Word husbandry.

      Old friend! The amazing transformations that have occurred in the past year or so are evident in your new photo. I see joy renewed in your eyes! If I may be so outspoken, I rejoice with you!
      He makes all things new, even from moment to moment! He gives us new life and second chances aplenty! Thank you, Lord!
      And thank you, Carol Ann, for your ever-uplifting words. I’m ecstatic. 🙂
      May all the blessings you have wished me return to you multiplied!
      Friend Len, Gloryteller.

    Words of wisdom indeed. You can grow words on my farm any time brother….ron 
    If you clear off the tumbleweeds, we will plant together. 🙂
    Thanks, Bro!

    That was awesome! Word husbandry. Wow. What a clear picture that paints of the importance of words. I am actually in the middle of writing a section of devotionals on James Chapter 3 concerning the taming of the tongue. If i find an appropriate spot, may I use that poem as an illustration? I will link back to you if you say ok.

About The Music Links Below

I don't own, and have no claim on, these music videos. The following are simply links inside my website pointing back to the original locations of the videos. The names of the creators of these videos are cited wherever possible, and only "embedding-enabled" selections are used.

The Basic Christian Library

"Mere Christianity" by C.S. Lewis. This is fundamentally what Christianity is all about.

"The Case for Christ" by Lee Strobel. Another converted atheist presents His compelling case for believing in Jesus.

"Left To Tell" by Imaculee Ilibagiza. This profound work is her own extraordinary story of endurance, discovery of the Holy Spirit, grace, healing, and an astonishingly compelling account of the necessity for forgiveness.

Compelling Christian Fiction Reads

"The Circle" 4-book series by Ted Dekker.
A man is the bridge between two very different worlds. Sound familiar? Can he save both? This T.D. work is brilliant in my book.

"This Present Darkness" and "Piercing the Darkness" by Frank E. Peretti. Tales of spiritual warfare from a unique perspective. Stirred a small controversy, but sold millions. What are we Christians afraid of? Hey, it's fiction!

My Signature Story

"I AM NOT MY OWN" is the piece that inspired the building of this site. It is the story that this site, as well as my life, is centered around. This letter to you is the one i would most like for you to read out of all the ones you will find here, because it describes how profoundly the works of Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit can change one human life.

For Your Reading Enjoyment, This Is Like A Park, Use It, Enjoy It, and Leave Everything Where You Found It.

But to only be read and perused.
