First blog post

“only the beginning”

This is my first and only blog site which I started to explore my own creative writing interests while connecting with others of like mind who are using this platform to develop creatively while making invaluable connection with others wherever they may be.

I’ve had a few screenplays collecting dust and a novel only in developmental stage for some time but this hopefully will serve as the catapult and pathway to producing completed works for final publication or production.

Feel free to contact me with any thoughts or suggestions you may have and even just to become acquainted, or if I might be able to help you in some way please let me know and I will be more than glad to try my best to do that!

All the best to you!

The main Mission is to seek God’s will in order to better serve our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

On bent knee as humble as I can be, I say; the one thing I yearn and hope for above everything is at the end of my trial on earth to hear God Almighty upon my judgment tell me face to face, “Well done my good and faithful servant.”

I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me” (John14:1-6).

Matthew 25:21  “His master replied, ‘Well done my good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things.  Come and share your master’s happiness!”

“Therefore, being always of good courage, and knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord–for we walk by faith, not by sight–we are of good courage, I say, and prefer rather to be absent from the body and to be at home with the Lord.” 2 Corinthians 5:6-8.   Amen.

I actually found that I wasn’t interested in books or any fame whatsoever, no not any such ego boosting activity. But rather the opposite was of the greatest importance, and to actually become more “humbled” is my motivation, to the point of being what I truly am, a child of God’s who “needs to be saved” and is in jeopardy of becoming lost in this chaotic sick world of  disgusting human sin, selfishness and filth!

So just as I knew wisely in my heart many years ago that when I turned my back on Hollywood and left it behind me that was the right thing to do; but now I recognize and know that I only wish I had left the Devil along with all corruption; the wicked Ways of the World in the dust too!  I did thankfully escape that horrible Hollywood trap!

My actual journey has been and is one of “Revelation” or of finding the “Truth; about this world and namely myself,” so that I can truly see who and what I am in the scheme of things, in this “Ways of the Crooked World” that I actually want nothing to do with, and like all humans, which I need to escape from; “hopefully worthy enough in the end to be able to enter through Heaven’s Gate!”

Wake Up!

Isaiah 40:3-5 “A voice of one calling: “Prepare the way for the LORD in the wilderness; make a straight highway for our God in the desert. 4Every valley shall be lifted up, and every mountain and hill made low; the uneven ground will become smooth, and the rugged land a plain. 5And the glory of the LORD will be revealed, and all humanity together will see it. For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.”

  2. Way after the start of my blog an interesting point about perspective came up in another bloggers post which I being a photographer and having experience with perspective or points of view thought this comment of mine to him should be placed here in the beginning as a sort of retrospective perspective to contemplate!

    Hi John sir, and good evening to you as well. I do agree completely here and that fact that we were born without choice to then go on into a life filled with twists and turns that could never be imagined in all of their abundance and complexity is proof to me that the great power and truth is out there beckoning us to make those choices carefully; as we each are free agents with these reasoning minds that are capable of asking the bigger questions or contemplating in the least what might be best for each of us to do with our time here good, bad or indifferent the choice is solely our own to work out with I believe a sense of urgency and deliberation that addresses the concept of living a worthwhile or hopefully respectful life; because with this grand gift of design as I see it, this all comes coupled with the burden of responsibility for our own actions. Therefore, conscience comes into play whereby we must ask for any given action we take, is this a right thing to do or is it wrong in the larger sense; the big picture. I’m thinking that we should consider as individuals, if our lives as viewed from any perspective would be seen as worthwhile or appreciative of the opportunity!
    Take care and all the best. Lawrence


      1. Thank you! I tend to see that we agree that our core interests as human beings who care and search, do go hand in hand with passion or a yearning for the truth; in my case I prefer to hope it’s God’s truth imparted to us by His word and living in His graces; as I see from your background and experience is your strongest motivation, is it not?

    1. Mio caro paisano italiano grazie per questo gentile pensiero e interesse sei così dolce! Immagino che tu sia così meravigliosa una signora e se non così lontano apprezzerei l’opportunità e la grazia della tua presenza per avere una grande conversazione in qualsiasi momento! Per ora possiamo provare a conoscerci in questo modo, ed è un piacere anche per me! Non esitate a dire o chiedere qualcosa che ti piace di me qui e anche e-mail che elenco sulla homepage qui.
