Stepping Aside For A Brighter Voice

 Sometimes you have to just doff your ballcap, in awe.

I will step aside today,
by my, and not by cancer's, choice,
in the hope that you will stay
to listen to a brighter voice
that speaks hard truth with love and grace,
and sings faith in angelic tone
that would bring tears to iron face
and rend a heart of granite-stone.
And so I ask you, stop awhile,
and hear these things that must be heard,
and at the end, perhaps you'll smile
as your heart holds every word
so simply offered as a plea,
Please don't turn away from me.”

Over now to Jane Marczweski, aka 'Nightbirde'. If the video doesn't come up on your device, please click here.

Thanks to Carol Ashby, Blessed Are The Pure Of Heart is back on Kindle, and will be available in paperback soon.

Friends are everything. I couldn't have done it.

Below are my recent releases on Kindle -please excuse their presence in the body of the blog. I haven't the energy to get them up as 'buttons' in the sidebar. You can click on the covers to go to the Amazon links.


  1. I saw this video a week or so ago and it is so pure and good. I pray Jane makes it.

  2. I am speechless. And it is okay. Andrew, it is okay. Thank you. It is okay. To be lost sometime. We lose our way. He never loses His way. He IS THE WAY. Blessings because it is okay.

  3. Wow, thank you for sharing that video. Beautiful.


  4. Crying my eyes out, thank you for this. Wow. As always, I am sending you much hope and joy today. <3 (Karen, FMF #24)

  5. It's such a powerful video. Her blog posts are too. She's beautiful. We won't turn away from you. I always read your posts but don't always post a response. Praying hope and strength for you, my friend. My closest cousin is now battling cancer. It breaks my heart. She has hope. We can handle almost anything if there is hope. Take care and God bless.

  6. thinking of you and Barbara as we head into this weekend ...

  7. I've seen this video posted several times over the last couple weeks, and I watch it every single time. And cry every single time. It is a heartbreaking joy to watch. God bless and keep you, Andrew. You are in my prayers. FMF#28
