The Strange Romance of Jacob and Rachel

Poor Leah. She really didn’t have much of a choice with things. But, we’ll get to that. After Jacob stole his brother’s blessing, Isaac commanded him to leave Canaan and search for a wife. The reasoning was the same as Abraham’s. It’s just interesting that Isaac didn’t send a servant to find his son a…

The story of Isaac and Rebekah Continues

Before we get to the romance of Jacob and Rachel… and Leah, we need to understand the situation that set all of this up. From my last post, it appears that Isaac and Rebekah are destined to live happily ever after. Well, the fairy tale part of their marriage is about to be over. Chapter…

The Romance of Isaac and Rebekah

Genesis 24: Now Abraham was old, well advanced in years. And the Lord had blessed Abraham in all things. 2 And Abraham said to his servant, the oldest of his household, who had charge of all that he had, “Put your hand under my thigh, 3 that I may make you swear by the Lord,…

The “Romance” of Abraham and Sarah

As we explore the romantic relationships of the bible I want you to keep this in mind: What are the little foxes (Song of Solomon 2:15) or problems in their marriage? Did they respond by resting or trusting in the Lord? (Spoiler alert… no) How did God respond to their sins of mistrust? Adam and…

Love Practical

The story of Troy is high in drama and excitement. Imagine a war fought over the love of a man and a woman! What passion! What wonder! What stupidity! It is a fun tale to say over the campfire. Who knows the real story behind it all. Maybe Helen had a role to play but…

Noir City 6

Yewna didn’t mean to grab Ninombir’s hand. It was a reflex, something that just felt right. Nin didn’t show any signs of it being out of the ordinary. Inside his head, to put it lightly, he was freaking out. She grabbed my hand! Never in a million years would I think that one such as…

Noir City 5

Ninombir had never been in an airship before. It was way more luxurious on the inside, at least for Ninombir’s mechanical tastes. He almost mentioned this to Yewna, but he knew what she’d say, “Wait until you see my father’s airship!” He’d heard the horror stories as a boy on daddy’s lap, airships from the…

Noir City 4

Yewna awoke to a far-off yell. Her eyes gazed about the nooks of the cave. Then they beheld Ninombir resting in his chair across from her. Was this the dream? She thought. There were blankets around her, they tumbled off as she sat up. Her dress shimmered from forest green to the brilliant green of…

Noir City 3

The noisy carriage crunched in the snow which made talking very difficult. They had both sensed something in that glance, like the lonely cry of a rent heart, a hope endured and finally met, a barren spring enclosed suddenly flowing with sweet water. They both felt this, yet, neither had the courage to express it.…

Noir City 2

Ninombir stood upon the wooden ramparts of teetering tower at the peak of Snowcrest. He looked over the icy tundra and the mountains about them. His goggles were designed to search for any heat, this meant an approaching army or a mechanical monstrosity. The only heat was seen way down below. The keep he was…
