A Beautiful Corona

As you know, the word “corona” refers to a crown-like object or something roughly trumpet shaped. This spring, “corona” has acquired a very negative association that came with the name of a dangerous virus. However, I would like to take back the word and redeem it right now.

At about 11 pm last night, March 19, 2020, astronomical Spring officially came. The season has not changed that early for 124 years! All the harbingers of this wonderful season have arrived. Robins are headed north and can be found in almost every yard. Flowers can be seen everywhere. Trees, lawns, and gardens are covered with them!

One of my favorite flowers is among the earliest bloomers to trumpet the imminent arrival of Spring. That is the glorious daffodil. Daffodils come in many sizes, shapes, and color combinations. All of them are beautiful in my eyes, and they all have one thing in common. They all possess a colorful cup-shaped structure in the center. Did you know that structure is called the “corona”? Does that not save and redeem all the negative versions and nuances of the word? 


One day, in the fullness of time, all the ultimate harbingers will be in place for the arrival of the highest, most glorious “season” of all, when Jesus Christ arrives to accomplish our most complete rescue, our final redemption, and culmination of all His vows to us, His Bride, the body of believers. Amidst the heraldry of Heavenly trumpets, our King will come to sweep us up and whisk us away, that day. And upon His head will rest the Royal Diadem, the Holy Coronet of Coronation, the Crown of Glory, and He will be wrapped in a corona the likes of which has not yet been seen – the indescribably beautiful Corona of the Divine Light of the Highest Lord!

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.

The content here's not to be used,

But to only be read and perused.

If you copy it off,

My lawyer's not soft,

And your fortune is mine - you got sued!

Gloryteller :-)
