It's a beautiful experience to observe these Digs. I love the way you had Jocelyn "overwhelmed with love," (and it sounds just like her) and Richard whispering "with trembling lips." Lena, you are a true artist painting a true-to-life picture of the birth of Christ and the majesty of His being. Thanks for letting me tag along. Love, Connie

Pssst! Lena, is it okay if I just kind of peek around the corner and watch what's going on here? I'm out of breath from searching through three digs in one night. Oh, by the way, if you think Constance sounds better for an epic such as this, feel free to call me by my given name. Hope I'm not too late Connie

As The Deer Pants - Dig #3 (Short Story) - 12/2/2006 9:38:20 PM
I could not help but smile at this original way of recounting the Nativity. Can't see myself on a camel though. Of course I have no trouble with the belief of the immaculate conception. Jesus could not live nine months in an unclean womb and surviving as a man on her blood too. It was a bit a of problem for her though, since being with child and not married carried almost a death sentence. But God was with her too. Victor

When Alzheimer Strikes (Short Story) - 11/27/2006 12:15:28 AM
Lena, I read this when you first posted it, but was not able to leave a review. It is a subject that breaks my heart. My mom was an Alzheimer victim. It truly is a heart wrenching disease. We used to call mom a "walking encyclopedia" because she read so much and could remember everything. She also designed clothes and sewed beautifully, and she wrote, her letters and journals were a hoot, such a wonderfully funny woman. I think that was the saddest part for her, losing those skills. She fought the disease tooth and nail for many years, and worked hard to hide it from her family. She kept sticky notes all over the place so she would remember where things were and what they were called. But then she lost the ability to read the notes. Anyway, from the comments it's obvious that this subject touches a lot of us very deeply. Your work is always full of kindness and love for your fellow man. Yours is a gentle spirit that is appreciated by many (and that includes me! :o)

When Alzheimer Strikes (Short Story) - 11/8/2006 10:34:42 PM
As an Alzheimer's caregiver, I found the story quite touching. I wish my wife could put sentences together as much as Mildred did in the story. On the other hand, Brunetta, my 65-year-old wife of 40 years is more lucid than Mildred, has a sense of humor, an infectious laugh, and can answer Yes or No questions. She no longer knows her name or mine, although she still knows close family members and recognizes the names when she hears them. We know the time may come when she'll need residential care or 24-hour home health care, but (like Derek) we hope to postpone that as long as possible. Our PCA congregation is wonderfully supportive -- like Derek, encouraging her to participate as much as possible, but not patronizing her. The kind of encouragement Derek gives in the story is critical for prolonging the number of "good days" that he talks about. My wife's normal social activities bring her joy, and seem to help with symptomatic relief. So Derek's interaction with Mildred is both accurate and medically sound. One of the reviewers mentioned faith, something Derek demonstrated in his prayers. Faith is also a major source of our strength. Music stays with dementia patients longer than speech does; and, Brunetta can still sing a number of her favorite hymns despite her limited speech. I tailor our evening devotionals to her, avoiding complex thoughts, and closing with the Lord's Prayer, which she can still recite pretty well along with me. Reading Lena's poignant account, I couldn't help viewing the Macbeth tale as performing the same function for Mildred as the Lord's Prayer and favorite hymns do for my wife. I doubt that Derek understands how engaging Mildred in conversation during her "good" moments not only shows his love for her, but is therapeutic as well. That, I suggest, is exactly the message conveyed by the best married Alzheimer's patient/caregiver couples: Motivated AND animated by their love, they inevitably bring about positive medical consequences. Love, after all, engages the mind and emotions rather thoroughly; and, researchers believe both attitude and mental activity are keys to how well an Alzheimer's patient does following diagnosis. I left the story believing that Derek's prayer for "tomorrow" will be granted, along with quite a few tomorrows to follow. The author shows great skill in the economical use of words, not to mention skill in choosing words with impact. She quickly draws the reader into the story, wins their sympathy, and helps them to understand both the joy and frustration of even a good day for the caregiver. She also painted a moving portrait of the tragedy engulfing Mildred, the Alzheimer's patient herself. Finally, like me, I suspect Derek would tell someone who praised him for his courage and patience, "When you love someone who has stood by you in sickness and in health, and has shown her love for you in countless ways over the years, it isn't courage that keeps you at her side. It's the thought that you could do nothing less, for she would do the same for you. It is, in other words, simply what people genuinely in love do for each other."

When Alzheimer Strikes (Short Story) - 9/27/2006 7:02:15 PM
What an extraordinary story Ms. Jones. There's no doubt that Alzheimers is one of the most terrifying epidemics of modern times. But your wisely crafted story illustrates how it can also be an opportunity to exercise greater love, strength, and compassion in our lives. Much gratitude for this beautiful gift of hope and grace.

When Alzheimer Strikes (Short Story) - 8/20/2006 8:36:27 PM
Hi Lena, I decided to read this story. I love the way you told it. The child within us is always there. My mother spent much of her childhood in Children homes. When she grew old and could no longer take care of herself, we placed her in a nursing home. One day she told me that they were mean to the children in the dining room. She had reverted back to the days of her childhood. I wished I could have taken her into my home, but we lived in a bi-level house which meant that we would have to carry her up and down stairs. We also had only one bathroom then. Best wishes.

The Conversation of Charles Darwin (Article) - 1/20/2007 4:48:30 PM
The real flaw in Darwin's Theory is that people seem to have made a "religion" out of it instead of treating it as the theory it was/is. It was Darwin's attempt to pidgeon-hole Creation. Humans, especially scientists, do like to contain everything in boxes (God will not be so contained). Ted

Calling All Worriers (Article) - 1/6/2007 5:07:43 PM
What a beautiful truth, and great read. I've enjoyed it, but God says Cast All your Fears unto HIM!! Why worry? Blessings always, Loretta

The Conversation of Charles Darwin (Article) - 10/3/2006 11:43:05 AM
I suppose it's possible that this little vignette actually took place, but it's more probable that it's a figment of over zealous imagination on the part of some with a supernatural axe to grind. In any case, I would believe the observational and predictive power of the principal Darwin uncovered with the strength of his unsullied younger mind more than I would any wishful anecdotes purporting his conversion from a beautiful scientific persuasion to that of an old man on his death bed fearful of an afterlife. His whole later life had been spent revelling in the discovery that there is no such thing as an afterlife except in the form of biogeneration of other lives. (Most failure to comprehend the elegant simplicity of evolution is a failure to comprehend the profound power of deep time.) I would tend to attribute any such story as that related above to the myopia of those around this brilliant man rather than to any breakdown of his mental and spiritual capacity and capability. However, if is true, we can safely assume the Bible reader was not the Darwin of evolutionary power, but a broken man due to the pressures of Lilliputian minds that at last found a way to drag him to their own level. Best regards, Leland

The Conversation of Charles Darwin (Article) - 10/1/2006 3:25:39 PM
Thanks for sharing this. I have always believed the evolutionary theory is possible if there is an engineer. Someone who could lead it step by step to the beginning. In short evolution needs God, not the other way around. Therefore, who cares how I know he did. God Bless, Lew

Change of Pace (Article) - 8/9/2006 9:41:01 AM
You didn't go far enough. There has been a “spin” going on in Christianity since the time of Christ. Matthew has the Magi visiting a house. Luke introduces the manger. Today’s farmland crèche scenes descend from the 13th century and the “spin genius” of St. Francis of Assisi to promote the “humble beginnings” of Christ for more emotional impact. Francis was upset that most crèche scenes of his day were elaborate and jewel encrusted. (Remember that Francis of Assisi came from wealth and renounced it. There is nothing worse than a reformed anything. They tend to pee on whatever they have left behind as not important or to be negated.) Francis borrowed some farm animals and straw, and when he gave his midnight mass on Christmas Eve1223, we have been repeating the “humble beginnings” theme for the Birth of Christ every since. The gold and the jewels from the encrusted crèche scenes were dismantled, the proceeds given to the Church to perpetuate the Churches message. Better that it had gone to buy food to feed the poor and hungry of the day, and maybe history would be a little kinder to that particular period in time. The ox and the donkey didn’t appear in artistic renderings until the 4th century, taking something from one of the many versions of the Book of Genesis and elaborating on it. (Yes, there are MANY versions of Genesis.) The donkey was the mode of transportation in Christ’s day. When it became a question as to how the Wise Men could make the journey from so far and so quickly on donkeys, the camel came into being as the mode of transportation. Camels can go three times the distance as a donkey… voil`a… the “spin”… and it negated any further questions in the minds of the thinking faithful of whether the “message” was inaccurate. If you did NOT believe, you were branded a heretic. Even the names of the wise men are in dispute, and whether it was three or four or half dozen that made the trip. And the spin goes on as we repeat the inaccuracies from generation to generation as truth. NOTE: For more background, there is an excellent article on the history of the story of the Nativity in Time Magazine, as to when certain things came into cultures and their religions as “truth”. (Secrets of the Nativity, by David Van Biema/Time Magazine, Dec. 13, 2004. His research is very good.) Elizabeth

DARN! I seemed to have flunked one more test. Oh dear, what will I do? I am always the runner-up but never the winner. Or did I just win and didn't know it. In either way, that would make me a loser, wouldn't it? I like your analogy. Why worry? It only makes things worth worrying about. Such a waste of energy. Trust God. He will take care of you, anyway if you will only let him. God Bless you, Lew Duffey

Oh my ... I thought I was a bit titched when my mother met me several times in my dreams and we smiled. Remembering that: "to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord" for those 'in' Christ, I find comfort in it now, even if it's only just a work of my own sub-conscious. I will admit, Lena, that everything that I've accomplished artistically, since my mother passed in 1998, I have secretly dedicated to her. Your write reminded me of all the good that we shared. Peace and abundant blessings to you friend ... richard

Oh no, I had no idea either! Lew was such a sweet man! Thank you for writing this beautiful and far-reaching tribute for our dear Lew. Blessings, Christine

Life (Poetry) - 7/14/2011 12:19:11 PM
It is a blessing and a comforting spiritual feeling to know that you know that Lew is with our Lord and Savior. Anyone who believes we are here for the toys and the high times only is missing the whole point of why God put us here in the first place. Love is forever and forever is a long time. God Is love. Jesus welcomed Lew with open arms. Now Lew will really start living the Angelic life that the good book gives us a taste of that place called Heaven. I am in the hospital myself today but I know where I am going and it will be our true home. No doubts here only comfort because the Lord gives us choices and I cannot see a better future anywhere else but with Him. Amen

Life (Poetry) - 7/14/2011 12:00:34 PM
Aww, so sorry to hear of Lew's passing! He will definitely be missed! Beautiful tribute to a gentle man who truly loved the Lord. Now he is with Jesus, but those who he left behind will never forget him. (((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Texas, Karen Lynn. :(

It is a unique relationship for sure, but sweet just the same. This tugs at the heart, Lena. How fitting to write such a tribute on your mother's birthday. God bless you and yours, and bring His healing touch to her. Love, Connie

Mother Dearest (Poetry) - 3/19/2011 12:22:36 PM
How tenderly you write of this, Lena, and instead of writing of it as a burden you honor your mother in such a beautiful way. I am facing the same role reversal now, and you articulate it perfectly. Blessings, Christine

My prayers to with you and your mom. I know the feeling. I say a thank you prayer every morning. By the way I am headed to the hospital myself for some same-day surgury. Shouldn't be a big deal but I thought I would tell you. Your prayers will be appreciated. God bless, Lew

Don't Take Life For Granted (Poetry) - 3/8/2011 11:47:07 AM
Wow- so scary- thank God she is still with us/you. Yes- you never know- anyone- in an instant- can be gone. What an adorable photo. I have several photos of my parents at the piano- and CDs of them playing. Awesome things to remember them by. John

God Makes No Mistakes (Poetry) - 2/24/2011 8:19:20 AM
Very well written and it reminds me of a dear friend who is now with God. He had arms and legs but was confined to a wheel chair yet he had one of the most positive attitudes ever and I don't have enough space to go into his many accomplishments. Thank you for this write. Indeed is food for thought. God bless, Lew

The Beggar at the Corner (Poetry) - 2/21/2011 10:11:02 PM
Words of truth and this write...a kind word...a helping heart...somethings sooth more than a hungry belly...the both sooth the heart with kindness and a reflection that they too are human beings...

The Beggar at the Corner (Poetry) - 2/21/2011 7:36:45 PM
AMEN! I've been that beggar on the corner for more years than I care to remember! But thanks be to God... He has redeemed me from that part of my past. And YES it was His way of maturing this old hard head! While I was,and still am maturing, He did teach me compassion along the way... as well as others. Truth seekers have no better teacher than hard luck or tough love! I appreaciate your stopping by my old postings. And yes,I shall return again. Been kinda bruised these last few years... And I miss all of you here too! Need all the prayers I can get! Love I leave with you... Peace I pray for you... Hope I have for you... God Bless, God Speed, Spirit Warrior

The Beggar at the Corner (Poetry) - 2/21/2011 12:12:23 PM
Oh yes, This is truly the word of God. Love is important. It is important that we realize that because he loves us he may even give us a spanking once in a while. You put this superbly. God bless, Lew

The Beggar at the Corner (Poetry) - 2/21/2011 9:58:53 AM
Truly inspiring, bless you! Now I can begin to glimpse the whole picture, to take a deep breath. Blessings, Christine

AMEN!! (((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Texas, Karen Lynn. :) They need to help our people HERE first, and NOT just the children!! Plenty of struggling or poor adults here in America (I know. I'm one of them)!

The Beggar at the Corner (Poetry) - 2/21/2011 7:34:54 AM
I had a dear old pastor who used to say, "Disappointment is God's appointment." This is precious, Lena. As we sometimes like to say here, "I believe it is one of your best." Love, Connie

Wise reflection! Blessings, Christine

Rein-in Those Thoughts (Poetry) - 2/14/2011 4:03:16 PM
Takes me right to the mantra on my bio page, Lena: "What I focus upon becomes reality. I have the power to choose." The devil loves it when I choose poorly or don't choose at all and let everything come flowing without discretion. If we don't censor our choices, it's a quick trip down the wrong road. A great reminder! Richard

Rein-in Those Thoughts (Poetry) - 2/14/2011 11:42:20 AM
Amen, Sister. Yes it is surprising what you see these days on light night TV. But each of us has a switch. God bless, Lew

The Empty Tomb (Poetry) - 1/26/2011 10:06:33 AM
Tremendous poem! You've reminded us that this was a historic place where the the first-fruits of the resurrection arose! When Christ returns, the rest of us who are sleeping in Him, will have new bodies like His. Your poem is a blessing because it fills our minds with thoughts of The Blessed One. ~In Christ, Z.B.McClure

The Way of the Cross (Poetry) - 1/24/2011 7:34:07 AM
But my mind focuses on the scene of Jesus dragging that heavy Cross Step by painful step. Indeed, Lena but my mind focuses on the empty cross as a reminder that death dead not hold my Lord. God bless you, Lew

"Gethsemane" as I read this poem of yours, H. Lena Jones. This I said: "Bless the Lord, oh my soul: and all that is me, bless His holy name." He died to save us. Thanks!!

Gethsemane (Poetry) - 1/21/2011 7:38:44 AM
Yes Lena it must have been an emotional time for you. I love the part when you wrote, He didn't, He couldn't, He wouldn't and he certainly will not abandon us now. God bless you, Lew

WELCOME BACK, DEAR LENA! You will be a blessing to all who visit your den, even as you were blessed in your visit to the Holy Land. Love, Connie

Capharnaum (Poetry) - 1/9/2011 6:39:45 PM
CAPHARNAUM reminded me of the faith I don't have. It would be great to believe like you--very comforting.

Capharnaum (Poetry) - 1/9/2011 2:53:15 PM
Oh beloved one. Welcome back. This was a beautifully written description of a place I have only read about. God bless you always, Lew

If Indeed I Must Compete (Poetry) - 12/1/2009 6:12:05 PM
Dear Lena, I promised to visit with each of my trackers, and that includes you. It seems so long since you posted anything on AD, but I'm sure you are busy about the Father's business. There is good advice in this poem; many reasons why we should look at Jesus, not at people. He is the gold standard! Love, Connie

A Baffling Situation Indeed (Poetry) - 11/6/2009 9:49:43 AM
I completely share your views here. I blame liberalism - it has made many people greedy and self-centred. They need protecting from themselves but intervention would 'breach their human rights' so we have to allow them to self-destruct. Madness!

Do It Anyway (Poetry) - 6/14/2009 9:24:18 PM
A beautiful composition.

Number one, number two, number three--where does it all begin--this chart--which friend? (I'm an organizer, too.)

Order! I Must Have Order! (Poetry) - 5/31/2007 4:02:11 AM
Lol! It is an honoe to be included in this "orderly" piece. Lives get busy and words often become stubborn so fear not fellow poet, your words ring true. Friendship is silent at times because it finds comfort in the positive flow of a smile!

Order! I Must Have Order! (Poetry) - 5/31/2007 12:18:02 AM
You are very precious! You have a big heart filled with joy and love.......Now relax! Be safe, Karen

Spare A Little Time (Poetry) - 5/30/2007 1:13:17 PM
Lena, how right you are, just a smile can make a difference in someone's life that has no one, or to lend a hand to someone in need lets them know people do care. I loved this!

Spare A Little Time (Poetry) - 5/30/2007 10:14:22 AM
I agree Lena. A fine exhortation! It's good that people spare a little time to communicate on this site with one another. There always seems to be a blessing in it. Light and Wisdom ... Richard

H., WOW! if only everyone lite just one little candle.

Spare A Little Time (Poetry) - 5/30/2007 3:27:43 AM
A very nice poem with a big generous thought. The smallest act of kindness might mean the difference in someone's day being miserable or happy. Yes, we all need to spread a little kindness and cheer wherever we can.

No Such Thing (Poetry) - 5/29/2007 7:58:00 AM
This is so, so true...I once had an enlightening experience while witnessing an old women who was cleaning out someone else's dirty tub...she was humming! I sat and thought...what would anyone find so soothing, and almost spiritual about cleaning out a tub? Well, many years went by, and I was working as an assistant to an Innkeeper...they had seven tubs to clean and I was their women! I had to do was my only income, so I thought about her, the old women...her name was Lucy Lee Earl. I started humming while cleaning out those tubs...I was thinking of her and how the Lord always gives us a choice to either soak into his spirit no matter what we do! or sulk with the enemy who always wants to bring us down......I hope I never stop humming! Miss Lucy obtained her mercy and I know she is reaping her rewards in heaven! the way...Thanks for sharing and sparking my memories... Love and Peace~ Kimmy~

No Such Thing (Poetry) - 5/28/2007 5:27:28 PM
A very spiritual write, your soul's delight. Lesson learned is to always be the best we can be not matter what the job..... Be safe, Karen

No Such Thing (Poetry) - 5/28/2007 3:09:56 PM
Lena, this is a thoughtful write, it seems that what has been lost in our society is the will to perform at the highest level regardless of wheather the job is menial or a high performance job. Today, many people do not take pride in their work performance and they do the lest amount possible to get by and to get out of the work place. I always strived to give the very best in all that I was assigned to do because I loved the knowing that I did my best; thus, leaving me feeling proud of the job I did. Maybe some of those people who don't take pride in their works will read this and decide to take an interest and to be proud of what they do. I enjoyed this alot!

Lena, Bless you I learned that if I want my job to mean anything I do not do it at the approval of others but i do it unto God. The Lord ministered t me not long ago if I want joy in my job then look not to them that gave me the job, nor for the paycheck from them nor approval of a good job done. Do it with Joy unto him for he owns all my job, the place of business, the paycheck as matter fact he is in charge of approval and raises and all my needs you have given me confirmation Glory to God... I love how he works and I know you do how he confrims through others of his Children the thoughts and intents of his ways. This is excellent.... < Respect Much Love, Always in Christ Jesus Your sister josie

I firmly agree with your poem. Even the most simplistic tasks can be enjoyable if we give them our positive best. I read a "Thank You" list once by a wife and mother---thank you for the dishes to wash, the laundry to do, the grocery shopping, the cooking I do, etc. The punch line was: You've given me a wonderful family to do these things for, the health and vitality to enable me to do them, etc. Putting love behind what one does is the key to enjoying it.

Great write Lena! This is a part of the stories I tell to include the significance of the waterboy in the escape of freed slaves. I believe in show and tell.

My mother always taught me that any job worth doing was worth doing well. She used the same example as you did about Jesus washing the disciples feet. I always tried and still do try to think of this if I feel like murmering or complaining about something I have to do at work. WWJD always good advice! A wonderful write my friend, one that is full of wisdom and heart, enjoyed this very much! Blessings, Joyce B.

What a beautiful write, a write penned from the heart! This is the best advice that one can take heed to. I have found it to be true, just when I feel that the world is closing in, and all hope seems gone, I can't find an answer for the situations, trials, troubles, or just overwhelmed with daily life...I find my comfort on my knees, by giving praises to God He lightens my load, gives me peace within, and restores my joy...reminds me of my purpose in serve Him! What a glorious reminder dear friend! Enjoyed this much! Blessings, Joyce Bowling

I would imagine that all friends start out ordinary, and after a bond of trust, and consistency, has been established, the trueness of what develops depends on how it's nurtured. Finding a "true" friend in this life is a miracle. Light and Wisdom ...

Be Still (Poetry) - 5/12/2007 7:00:06 PM
"Be still" is all we really have to do. There is only one unforgiveable sin, and that is the sin of not accepting God, in not having a loving relationship with God. It is God's first and greatest commandment. All we have to do is be still, and we will know that He is present. Be still and accept God. Be still and accept God and you will have a loving relationship with God. He makes it so simple for us. A powerful and moving message, Lena. Bless you. Richard

Many people in the world today are either sitting idle or are living as if there is no tomorrow, no heaven or hell...just living for the day. The sad thing is that as many are going on their own way the bible is unfolding before their very eyes! The war is only one more chapter being fulfilled...those that take lives with the beliefs of gaining eternal life are yet a prophesy coming to pass...someone made the comment the other day, "I don't know what the world is coming to!" I quickly added, "an end!" Several people left the room, they don't wont to hear about this...but the word tells us that they will run to the rocks to hide on that great day! It's coming and sooner I'm afraid than what many expect! I appreciate every us a little more praying time for those whom are still lost! Great write my friend, very thought provoking! God bless! Blessings, Joyce Bowling

Mommy, Dearest (Poetry) - 5/12/2007 11:30:25 AM
Beautiful tribute, you are right my dear friend...there is nothing like a mother's love, friendship and trust. My mother has always been there for me, supporting, encouraging, understanding, believing, laughing, worshiping with me, and loving me! I think it's kind of ironic but we once actually went out on a double date together...we went out with father and son! My friends all thought I was crazy, I just laughed at them...and later told them what a really good time we had. I look back and cherish this memory with those I harbor in my heart when she was by my side through sickness, stitches, salvation, wedding, childbirth and every step of my life...I count it all joy! Your tribute was wonderful and heartfelt! Enjoyed it my dear friend! Blessings, Joyce Bowling

Lena, I needed this today: "Let us consider how we may spur one another on towards love and good deeds." (Hebrews 10:24NIV) A powerful statement. Your poem "Follow Peace" reflects the floundering of our times. I've seen this world come from best to worst, and it doesn't seem to be getting better. HOW SAD IT IS FOR THE POOR CHILDREN WHO MUST SUFFER THE MISTAKES FROM THE SHAMBLES OTHERS HAVE MADE IN THIS COUNTRY.

Hatred Not LOVE Dominates And has turned our world Upside down. Amen to that. I sometimes think if my book were more about killing it would sell better. Our country is caught up in violence. Violence begets violence and this leads to destruction. Great write, Sister. God Bless, Lew
