Peace

Unlike what most people think, peace doesn’t vegetate at MacDonald, Burger King, Wendy’s or Chic-fil-A. You won’t find it at a German diner, a French Cafe or at an Italian restaurant. Neither does it reside at your most favorite steakhouse, nor is its habitat found at your nearest bar.  Like a kernel as small as …

The Champions Who Walked Among Us – Article 11 – The Ice Breaker

          It was three years before the ending of the nineteenth century, as this young infant opened her eyes, to see the light of the world, outside of her mother’s womb.  The month, the day, the year,  February 27, 1897, and her birth herald something new, something, which had not happened …

Four months and two days had already passed as she entered into the world. The year was 1898, and on the third day of the month of May, she let out the first cry highlighting her existence.  Unknowing to her parents, the cry she expelled would ring throughout her entire life and cause her to …

The year 1868, the month, September, and the newborn infant had chosen the twenty-second day of the month to make her entry into the world.

July 28, 1914, World War I had just begun, and one month later, the eyes of one of the most famous writers of Christian literature would open to see the bright lights of the world.  As her eyes slowly glanced  at her surroundings, at people, places, and at things, she registered them in her mind, …

The Champions Who Walked Among Us – Article 7 – The Ambassador

    She was twelve years of age as she was forcefully separated from her family. Before her capture, she had awoken and, looking toward the heavens, had admired the clearness of the sky, and the beauty of the clouds.  There was no place as beautiful as where she was born––a dreamer, still living in …

The Champions Who Walked Among Us – Article 6 – The Bumblebee

    Looking out of her window, the streets were filled with children playing, at the age of seven that was the highest priority for most children. They were having fun, and her heart yearned to be among them. As she turned to look at the kitchen clock, the hand of the clock moved to …

The Champions Who Walked Among Us – Article 5 – The Banker

Work for the night is coming, Work through the morning hours; Work while the dew is sparkling, Work mid springing flowers; Work when the day grows brighter, Work in the glowing sun; Work, for the night is coming, When man’s work is done.[1] 1934, the Black Tuesday that had ushered in the Great Depression of …

The Champions Who Walked Among Us – Article 2 – The Forerunner

Her body wrecked with illness was robbed of its energy––a young, frail, and tiny little thing, her mother had worried about her existence.  Her weakness and her frailty had people thinking she would never be able to marry and start her own family.  Marriage would happen to the others was a sentiment, which circulated among …

The Champions Who Walked Among Us – Article 1 – The Washerwoman

The war had been over two years when she was born. It was a cold day, perhaps raining down on the Delta in Louisiana, two days before Christmas.  Even though the people knew they were free citizens, the terror had already begun, and by the time, her eyes had opened, and she had begun to …
