A Tribute to Nell

Posted on

Sue's Pen 2 Paper Blog

I love to crochet and had the brilliant idea that maybe all the lap afghans I had crocheted could be used by residents in a senior living facility. As I drove home one day from shopping I took a different route due to construction and noticed a large assisted living and memory care home that I didn’t know was there. I decided to stop in the next day to see if they would like a donation of hand crocheted lap afghans. Long story short, they did and I was asked if I’d be willing to teach crocheting to some of the residents. That’s how I met this beautiful 90 year old lady and she almost immediately wiggled her way right smack into my heart.

When I was writing short stories for my book titled, “I AM” I wrote this short story about my dear friend, Nell Dale. At the time…

In the Darkness of Night

Posted on

Sue's Pen 2 Paper Blog

It was a dark night with only the moon shining slightly through the darkness. The birds are quietly sleeping tucked way in their nests. The lions slink about through the brush waiting for a rabbit, a rodent, a stray dog or cat; anything that might wet their appetite.

Sitting at the foot of a tall tree a man sits munching quietly on an apple. He gazes up at the moon through the dark branches of the trees. Crunch, crunch can softly be heard as he chews the last of his apple.

Not far from him is another man. He leans against a tree trunk sucking the sweet nectar from the stem of a Honeysuckle flower, waiting. Waiting for what? He has no gun so he isn’t a hunter. He has no bow and arrow so he isn’t out to kill in the silence of the night. Or is he?

A Democratic member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives has introduced legislation to mandate vasectomies for men after they father three children or reach age 40, “whichever comes first.”

The bill — which refers to men as “inseminators” —empowers womento take civil action against those who “wrongfully conceive a child with them.” Further, the legislation from state Rep. Chris Rabb (D) would “codify ‘wrongful conception’ to include when a person has demonstrated negligence toward preventing conception during intercourse.”

Rabb’s bill would “also empower Pennsylvanians to enforce this new law by offering a $10,000 reward for reporting to the proper authorities those scofflaws who have not complied with this statute within the allotted timeframe.”

“As long as state legislatures continue to restrict the reproductive rights of cis women, trans men…

The Wake-up Call

Sue's Pen 2 Paper Blog

I heard a true story today and it hit me just how the Lord can knock us up side the head when we least expect it.

The sun has come up and is shining brightly through the open kitchen window. The birds are singing their good morning songs and the dew is still on the grass. A slight breeze rustles the window curtains as the woman stands at the stove flipping the bacon in the skillet.

The aroma of coffee and bacon fills the room as she softly hums Amazing Grace. Her husband slowly enters the room. He’s retired and the years of being in law enforcement have etched deep lines across his face. The years of sorrow he’s seen in the eyes of victims, the splattered blood on highways from car accidents, and the mean and ugly side of the underbelly of crime have taken their toll.

He reaches…

For 18 long years of being sexually, physically, emotionally, and psychologically abused that’s what my abuser told me.

God has proved him wrong!

INTO THE LIGHT MINISTRY is a brand new ministry that I am now a part of through Abundant Life Church in Cumming, Ga. and I hope you will join me in proving to these abused women that Jesus Christ not only knows their pain, but is ready and willing to give them hope and healing.

INTO THE LIGHT MINISTRY is purchasing a home to have available for those who have been rescued from sex traffic. It will be a safe harbor, a place to heal from the atrocities they have been forced to experience, and a place to get on their feet. A place where they can meet Jesus and learn about Him, experience His love, compassion, and healing.

Please help us to help these women. Your prayerful donations, even small amounts, will help to bring hope and healing. Every cent goes directly to provide this safe haven home. (There are very few of these homes available) Become a partner in God’s work and watch how He will bless you and these hurting souls.



Into The Light Ministry is a 501c3 tax deductible ministry.

Thank you so much and blessings to you.

Sue – a victor in Christ over sexual abuse.

“Just the facts, Joe, Just the Facts.”

For the past 2 years we have been inundated with false news, some news that has a speck of truth, and other news that will say it like it is.

There are those who believe this entire upheaval over the “Jab” (Covid 19 shot), wearing of masks, and social distancing, is the democrat administration wanting to control people and destroy the American economy in order to fulfill their socialism/communism agenda. They also believe Bill Gates admission to his goal in life is to drastically reduce the worlds population “to save the world” through the administration of this shot.

And there are those who believe the sun rises and sets in the democrats and they can do no wrong and “are doing what is best for humanity as a whole” so they accuse others of a different opinion to be spouting conspiracy theories and…

A Wonderful True Story

This is a wonderful true story. You will be glad that you read it, and I hope you will pass it on.

It happened every Friday evening, almost without fail, when the sun resembled a giant orange and was starting to dip into the blue ocean. Old Ed came strolling along the beach to his favorite pier. Clutched in his bony hand was a bucket of shrimp.

Ed walks out to the end of the pier, where it seems he almost has the world to himself. The glow of the sun is a golden bronze now.Everybody’s gone, except for a few joggers on the beach. Standing out on the end of the pier, Ed is alone with his thoughts…and his bucket of shrimp.Before long, however, he is no longer alone.

Up in the sky a thousand white dots come screeching and squawking, winging their way toward that lanky…

Don’t Love Yourself!

Posted on

'At last, true love!'Oh, all right, I admit my title is a ruse. But I really am tired of seeing motivational posts telling us to love ourselves. Why? Because we don’t need to learn to love ourselves.

We need to learn to like ourselves. In a sense, people who commit suicide love themselves too much–so much that they’re profoundly crushed when they fail at fulfilling their hopes. They can like and accept others, despite their failings, but not themselves.

Self-like is a hard-shelled nut. It doesn’t crack for motivational slogans: “You’re the greatest!” (“Oh, shut up, I’ve accomplished nothing today!”) Why? Because we’re born with an inner compass that relentlessly points true north, refusing to let us settle for cotton candy imitations.

I have a dear friend, Michelle, who grew up during the peak of the self-esteem movement. Her mother told her non-stop how “special” she was, praising even her most insignificant accomplishments. By the time she’d reached young adulthood, Michelle was hopelessly jaded. She was convinced that, 1) nothing she accomplished mattered because “special” had no real meaning, and, 2) she was incapable of actually accomplishing anything of real value. I have never met another person who disliked themselves as deeply as she does.

I struggled with serious anxiety as a young adult. Each night I would lie awake, terrified at the prospect of being alone with the one person I least trusted: myself. I loved myself (too much, really), but I didn’t like myself.

In the book of Genesis, God tells Cain, after the rage-filled young man has killed his brother, “If you do not do what is right, sin crouches at your door. Its desire is for you—but you must master it.” (Genesis 4:7) And then God does something remarkable: he places a mark on Cain’s forehead, not a mark of guilt (as some mistakenly believe), but a mark of protection. It’s God’s way of saying, “There’s a long journey ahead, but I am with you.”

The sweet nut of self-liking is hard to crack, but it’s worth the effort. And, perhaps surprisingly, unlike navel-gazing “love yourself” affirmations, the key to self-liking is others. No accomplishment brings such inner peace as service. The number one weapon against depression is service. Which is one of the reasons Jesus commanded us to love others “as yourself.” He knew we already loved ourselves. The key was to turn that love outward. To accomplish something worthy, something that might even cause us to…

Like ourselves!
