Author has written 10 stories for Big Valley, Rawhide, and Chicago Fire.

I'm a teenage Christian country hick. I'm from the USA. I'm home schooled and I love to read and write. I spend my days riding horses, playing the piano and writing.

My favorite shows are- Rawhide, Bonanza, Dukes of Hazzard, Gunsmoke and Big Valley.

In my Big Valley fanfic I tend to write more about Heath because he is easier for me to write. Nick mostly comes wiith Heath in my stories. I don't do Jarrod stories because I can't write about him very well. I guess Heath is easier for me too relate to. Not that my family or situation is anything like his. Personality wise I can relate.

I hope to write more Rawhide fanfics. I even have a few in progress.

I also hope to post a few Dukes of Hazzard fics too. But I won't be doing any for awhile. Those at the Dukes of Hazzard archive are kind of hard to please from what I've seen.

Please feel free to criticize any stories I post. I will listen to any suggestion to make the story better, but I do have my own opinion so I may not always agree with yours. I'm very honest and being honest tends to cause a few disagreements. But since I'm honest I have to except others honest opinion.

Thanks for visiting,

Deck of Cards

It was quiet that day, the guns and the mortars, and land mines for some reason hadn't been heard.

The young soldier knew it was Sunday, the holiest day of the week.

As he was sitting there, he got out an old deck of cards and laid them out across his bunk.

Just then an army sergeant came in and said, 'Why aren't you with the rest of the platoon?'

The soldier replied, 'I thought I would stay behind and spend some time with the Lord.'

The sergeant said, 'Looks to me like you're going to play cards.'

The soldier said, 'No, sir. You see, since we are not allowed to have Bibles or other spiritual books in this country,

I've decided to talk to the Lord by studying this deck of cards.'

The sergeant asked in disbelief, 'How will you do that?'

'You see the Ace, Sergeant? It reminds me that there is only one God.

The Two represents the two parts of the Bible, Old and New Testaments

The Three represents the Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost.

The Four stands for the Four Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John .

The Five is for the five virgins, there were ten, but only five of them were glorified.

The Six is for the six days it took God to create the Heavens and Earth.

The Seven is for the day God rested after making His Creation.

The Eight is for the family of Noah and his wife, their three sons and their wives -- the eight people God spared from the flood that destroyed the Earth.

The Nine is for the lepers that Jesus cleansed of leprosy. He cleansed ten, but nine never thanked Him.

The Ten represents the Ten Commandments that God handed down to Moses on tablets made of stone.

The Jack is a reminder of Satan, one of God's first angels, but he got kicked out of heaven for his sly and wicked ways and is now the joker of eternal hell.

The Queen stands for the Virgin Mary.

The King stands for Jesus, for he is the King of all kings.

When I count the dots on all the cards, I come up with 365 total, one for every day of the year.

There are a total of 52 cards in a deck; each is a week - 52 weeks in a year.

The four suits represent the four seasons: Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter.

Each suit has thirteen cards -- there are exactly thirteen weeks in a quarter.

So when I want to talk to God and thank Him, I just pull out this old deck of cards and they remind me of all that I have to be thankful for.' The sergeant just stood there. After a minute, with tears in his eyes and pain in his heart, he said, 'Soldier, can I borrow that deck of cards?'

Please let this be a reminder and take time to pray for all of our soldiers who are being sent away, putting their lives on the line fighting for US.

Prayer for the Military.

Please keep the wheel rolling. It will only take a few seconds of your time, but it'll be worth it to read on...

Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands.

Protect them.

Bless them and their families.

I ask this in the name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.

Amen.

When you read this, please stop for a moment and say a prayer for our servicemen and women all around the world.

There is nothing attached, but this can be very powerful.

Of all the gifts you could give a Soldier, prayer is the very best one.

Do not stop the wheel, please -- just send this on.


There are dark circles under my eyes,

A frown on my lips,

And tears on my cheeks.

Why do we judge what we don't understand?

Why do we fear the unknow?
