Novel Teaser – Fallen Angel

The following is a brief excerpt from one of my earlier novellas, Fallen Angel.   The morning was unseasonably warm for early spring. Too warm for this damn suit, the young man mused silently as he entered the air conditioned highrise downtown. Ahead of him walked his boss, Anthony Cappelli. The pair had been silent since … Continue reading Novel Teaser – Fallen Angel

Possession – part 4

Matthew 12: 43-46 “When an impure spirit comes out of a person, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then it says, ‘I will return to the house I left.’ When it arrives, it finds the house unoccupied, swept clean and put in order. Then it goes and takes with it seven … Continue reading Possession – part 4

Possession – part 3

To be more clear, when speaking of possession in general and my friend Mary in particular - there can be periods, long periods even, when the person who's possessed might seem completely normal. This is all part of Satan's ruse, his game to make you doubt what's going on. Such is the case that I … Continue reading Possession – part 3

Tales from the Parkside 6 – Are You Litter Trained?

I really wish Microsoft would come up with a way for people to click the above picture and have the smell waft out of the speakers.  The aroma that went with this one was truly something remarkable. What do you think that is in the tub? I'll give you a hint; they had cats. The … Continue reading Tales from the Parkside 6 – Are You Litter Trained?

Tales from the Parkside 4 – Crystal Cutthroat

About twenty five years ago I was living in a little coastal New England town called Rowayton. Set on a peninsula it started out as a fishing village with tiny seasonal cottages constructed primarily by the fishermen themselves. But, as all things in Connecticut go... "the money" found it and now the cottages are gone. … Continue reading Tales from the Parkside 4 – Crystal Cutthroat

Tales from the Parkside 3 – Vengeance in the Bathroom

The bathroom is our friend. It's there for us in our deepest time of need. It's there for us when we're at our lowest, at times in our lives when no one else would want to be near us. So why are people so mean to their bathrooms when they're moving out of a home? Why did … Continue reading Tales from the Parkside 3 – Vengeance in the Bathroom

Reflections on a Marriage

Marriage and the Sabbath - two things that God instituted right at Creation.  They are both all about love relationships; with each other and with our Creator.  Curiously enough they are both things that are becoming less and less important to the world. Practically everyone lives together before getting married now. Marty and I did … Continue reading Reflections on a Marriage
