Wake Up Call

Sriklan Islands were swamped with helicopters, sea planes, and search boats. A literal army, a swarm of military personnel had flooded the restricted island territories.

"These Islands are strictly off limits, no official maps even contain their presence... The President of the United States isn't even permitted to know of the location of these islands Jim... So tell me how two of my best operatives simply disappeared? ...I don't want excuses I want answers! Call me when you actually know something!" General Akbar nearly broke the com phone as he slammed it into its receiver in his quarters aboard the USS Silence. "The CIA is worthless...", he muttered to himself.

General Akbar looked down at his watch. 2313. It had been just over 21 days since they had each disappeared from their pick up points… at the same time. Both had reported in, ready for evac. Now, both were Missing In Action (MIA) upon extraction. What was most disturbing was the total lack of any other presence having come or gone. No signs of struggle; no blood or missing items; it's as though they'd simply vanished. The worst possibility was that they are defected, but he knew these two, like his own kids, better than his own kids. It wasn't possible. The other possibility, nearly as bad possibility was that they had been taken, which was a more likely scenario. The preferred possibility is that they were playing some massive practical joke on him, which would warrant a severe reprimand and was totally contrary to their character. Option 2 had the most merit, but that's leaves more questions than answers. How can two people disappear from the most top secrete set of Islands in the world?

The door swung open, and in ran a younger man, half heaving, holding a piece of paper.

"Sir."

"What is it Sargent?"

"Motion sensors detect movement on one of the south islands."

"We haven't trained down there in months. Are you sure it's not those stupid Monkey's again?"

"We checked sir, camera footage is rough from the distance, but we captured this image."

"Well I'll be... Get a unit down there now, and go in armed, we don't know what to expect."

"Yes sir"

With that the door closed and left the General alone. "Where have those two been?!"

***********

Ash came to himself blinded by a terrible light, which hurt his eyes. He rolled over onto his belly, and planted his face into his pillow... No, this wasn't a pillow, it was... sand? He accidentally breathed some in and began coughing uncontrollably. He would have to get his bearings, but first he'd have to get his senses. He rose to his hands and knees and calmed his mind, slowed his heart rate. Focus. That's what he needed right now. His eyes still hurt too much to open, but he didn't need them just yet.

Birds. Sand. Wind in trees. Water washing ashore in a quiet steady cadence. He was on the island? The sand between his fingers was cold to the touch, but the sun on his back and face was quite warm. These had to be white sand islands. He was back to the training center? Had he ever left? What happened.... wait... What is that? As his vision came back, he could make out the silhouette of someone thrashing about on the sand. "Eta…", of course.

***********

Eta was thrashing around, blindly looking for something or someone to attack. It was only after she ran out of breath that she realized she was alone. Her eyesight was coming back, but it was still much too bright to fully open her eyes, even with the clothe that she'd tied around her face to block the sun.

All she could see was trees, water, sand. Now that she was too tired to fight.... nothing... she could hear the sounds of the island. There was one sound that was not familiar... A rustling in the trees, less than half a klick away. Someone was headed this way,

"Eta…" the voice called.

"Ash?"

"Yep, it's me."

"Where are we? I can't see a thing out here."

"I have no idea, I was hoping you could tell me."

She could hear helicopters and speed boats headed their way…. "We have to move quickly, sounds like a whole bunch of bogies are coming our way."

"Eta, their friendlies. It's the General's team." They stood together, waiting for the evac team to come on to the beach. She gave him a friendly punch on the shoulder. He was like her big brother, always looking out for her. Even when she didn't want him to.

***********

General Akbar waiting until they had been checked by doctors, before taking them straight into the briefing room with his top staff.

"Where have you two been?"

"What do you mean sir?" Ash replied.

"What do I mean?" General Akbar looked to his staff with a questioning glance. "I mean, you've been missing for 15 days, and I need to know why, and where you were?"

"21 days?" Eta stated, dumfounded. "I figured 15 minutes… maybe. I completed the mission, called for an evac…"

"Me too." Ash interrupted. Then there was this bright light, and I woke up on the beach a few minutes later."

"That's right. Are you saying we've been missing for 21days?" Eta was incredulous.

"These two need to be checked again. Get them to the infirmary, now!"

Two months later:

General Akbar walked into a meeting room and slid two files in front of Ash and Eta. "It is with a heavy heart I have to inform you, that you are being retired. We just can't keep two of our most valuable assets in the field, if you cannot account for missing 21 days of your life. Even with all your training, if you have been programed… You'll be under surveillance, and required to report in to me directly four times a year. Maybe, in time, this will pass. For now you are being honorably discharged, with cover stories to account for the last 20 years of your respective careers. You will report any new memory you have to me, personally, immediately. Is that clear?"

"Yes Sir."

"Yes Sir."

I Collect Churches

So I have a confession... I have a strange hobby. Some people collect toys, cars, stamps. Some people visit museums, zoos, arboretums.



I... collect church experiences. I visit churches and collect insights on the differences between them, leadership styles, music styles, facility choices, and the overall experience. I collect pastoral teaching and teaching styles. I collect theology and theological differences.
I didn't know it was a hobby at first. I thought I was just "looking for a home church", or looking for something I hadn't found yet. I thought I just hadn't found my place...

Some of that is true. But really, I somewhat accidentally turned studying church into a hobby. Maybe it's because I was a pastor's kid and saw some of the inside workings from a unique perspective. Maybe it's because I secretly, and not so secretly, feel I am supposed to be a pastor but I'm still trying desperately to be anything else.

Maybe it's because Church, …

Writing Prompt | Room and Bored

At the Heart Writers group meeting tonight, led by Lauren Stinton, we did a short writing prompt.

You have seven minutes to write (fiction or nonfiction) and it must include these three items/themes:

Jesus is Lord of allPrincessCat
Here is my result, with a bit of post-meeting editing and addition. Keep in mind, I wrote it in OneNote on my phone...

*** Room and Bored The light amplified through the double glass window pane, despite the clawed dusty drapes, warming Princess' furry belly. She was Queen of this castle and she held the honor with dignity.

Her human was a good servant. He brought her food at the appointed time. He changed her box. He performed his part admirably.

Then her life shattered.

Her human walked in the front door and laid a box on the table. "Princess, I have a surprise for you, " He said.

She rolled off the couch back and sauntered over. The pawed the box. It moved. She jumped back, "Moew," she cried.

A soft rumble came from the box.

Her hu…

TEMAN


te'-man (teman, "on the right," i.e. "south"; Thaiman): The name of a district and town in the land of Edom, named after Teman the grandson of Esau, the son of his firstborn, Eliphaz (Genesis 36:11 1 Chronicles 1:36). A duke Teman is named among the chiefs or clans of Edom (Genesis 36:42 1 Chronicles 1:53). He does not however appear first, in the place of the firstborn. Husham of the land of the Temanites was one of the ancient kings of Edom (Genesis 36:34 1 Chronicles 1:45). From Obad 1:9 we gather that Teman was in the land of Esau (Edom). In Amos 1:12 it is named along with Bozrah, the capital of Edom. In Ezekiel 25:13 desolation is denounced upon Edom: "From Teman even unto Dedan shall they fall by the sword." Dedan being in the South, Teman must be sought in the North Eusebius, Onomasticon knows a district in the Gebalene region called Theman, and also a town with the same name, occupied by a Roman garrison, 1…

Have you died yet today?

Recently, I said I wasn't religious but I did have a relationship with Jesus. The person replied that is a "textbook" response for a Christian; therefore, I am a Christian; therefore, I am religious.

I have to laugh because "religion" is the dead following of dead traditions. The difference between my two-way relationship with a real living person (Jesus) and a religious person is the difference between a Tree and a Motorcycle. They have nothing to do with one-another.

Yet, I can see how they get it. Religious people would read this passage and see something totally different than I see, yet we read the same passage.
...anyone who has died has been set free from sin... In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus... Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey—whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?
