The six is not only for the message but for the courage to say all this on a site not known for a lot of...empathy (?) for spirituality. I loved the words and the message and the rhymes were beautiful, as usual. A beautiful package!

    You're absolutely right about that, Robyn.
    There's not much empathy at all here where professing one's spirituality and faith is concerned.
    Still, I do feel the need to do so every now and then as we have a lot of new members coming in who may not know me or where I stand. And, I just enjoy praising God too, quite franlky, LOL.
    Sorry for my lengthy delay in responding.
    With the holiday coming up it's been really crazy arfound here as I'm sure it is there for you as well.
    Thanks so much for the support, the six-stars, and all of the nice things you said in your review.
    Oh, and before I forget, thank you for the member sent pumpsa you placed on this as well. That was very kind, and I do appreciate it.
    I hope you and your family have a happy Thanksgiving.
    Thanks so much again.
    ~Dean

This is a change, sure enough. But just because you write horror, doesn't mean you live it. That would mean no horror writers could be Christians either. You are right about writing as a gift for God that we should always be thankful for. Also, that writing is as much a gift of gab as talking is.

Good luck and keep writing anything you feel.

I've known you are one of Gods own for a long time now, since you told me of that terrible experience you had. This poem, it's incredible, Dean. The words so simple, yet so heartfelt. I read it aloud, it truly is an awesome poem, my friend. :) Sandra xx

I had noticed many times
Your strong in faith and love
Your poems I enjoy so much
They are always full of art

The horror tales I like in many ways
I love the thrill and skill
Mostly because they show the truth
Satan is very real

Glimpses of your strong Faith
That I have seen as well
For that I know you are true to art
With a soul filled with Divine Love

Thank you for this poem
It shows more your heart
Still as you say the first step
To write that is the reason for FanStory

God bless your skills
Give many more the chills
From stories of horror
But never forget your heart

I've seen nothing on your site which I would expect God to find offensive, and I had a feeling you were a man of faith. Respect to you, Dean. This post certainly doesn't shove your faith down the throats of others. It's a testimony to your saviour. What's more, it's a work of art, as are all of your poems.

Thank you for sharing this part of your life today.

All the best,
Jane.

Hi Dean!

This is a tremendous piece. You've employed internal and external rhyme in a way to enhance your heartfelt convictions and showcase the gift you've been given. I imagine this one will be hard to beat in the Faith contest!

Good luck!

Kim

Beautiful, Dean.
That's all I can say.
Just beautiful
in every way.

You think I'm just "that horror guy?" then you had best think twice.

Now I know better, and I won't forget. :)

    Thanks, Phyllis. I really appreciate that.
    What we write doesn't always define who we are, merely our tastes in literary genres.
    "Write what you know, and do it well," that's what I was always told. I've read horror and science fiction my entire life, so that's what I know.
    Thanks again for your time and wonderful comments.
    All the best.
    ~Dean
