Welcome to my Author’s Website. As a child, and through my early adult life, I possessed a profound shyness that kept me from freely sharing in many group conversations. Because of this tendency, I became great at listening, but avoided most situations that required me to hone my skills of being a conversationalist. I loved to listen in on conversations, but I seldom shared any thoughts. This gift of listening created an ability to ponder and reflect on topics, leading to my own, thoughtfully derived  conclusions. In order to have a voice and to share my unique considerations, I began to write. Writing became the means to share contemplations from the deepest recesses of my soul. My inspiration for writing flows from the well-spring of life experience and the faith that has carried me through it all. I write in order to share the hope, grace and mercy God has for His creation. It is Jesus Christ to whom all credit flows.

"Easter 2021" A Poem by Lanny's mother, Clarice Cook

 

"What Will Your Answer Be?"

 

 

This is a poem that my mom wrote over fifty years ago. It's been an inspirational reality that has guided me through my own journey of sharing the faith in Jesus Christ through the written prose. 

 

“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ 37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ 40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’             Matthew 25:34-40 NIV

Just Sayin'!

 

"C'mon Man!"

 

 

Back in the day when I was teaching high school, I heard this phrase a lot. Especially after report cards had been sent home. This quaint little idiom was always thrown out in the midst of many an interaction with a student as they pled their case for a better grade. From the hallowed hallways of the little high school where I spent nearly three decades of my adult life, I learned the true definition and application behind the phrase, "C'mon Man!" Now that this small idiom has taken center stage on the presidential debate platform, I felt the need to share insight into the true intent and definition of this trivial, rhetorical expression.

The Hired Hand! 

"I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. The hired hand is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep. So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away. Then the wolf attacks the flock and scatters it. The man runs away because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep."   

                                            John 10:11-13 NIV

 

Andy Stanley shared a message regarding a troubling reality found within much of the modern church. It's heart wrenching to realize that too many church bodies have inflicted great harm on individuals who have sought inspiration, encouragement and support from a local fellowship. Have you ever experienced anything like this? Maybe you know somebody that feels this way.
