The Train

Sue's Pen 2 Paper Blog

Les Birr 9-24-2020

At birth we boarded the train and met our parents, and we believe they will always travel by our side. As time goes by, other people will board the train; and they will be significant ie; our siblings, friends, children, strangers, and even the love of your life. However, at some station our parents will step down from the train, leaving us on this journey alone. Others will step down over time and leave a permanent vacuum. Some, however, will go so unnoticed that we don’t realize they vacated their seats. This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos, goodbyes, and farewells. Success consists of having a good relationship with all passengers requiring that we give the best of ourselves.

The mystery to everyone is: We do not know at which station we ourselves will step down. So, we must live in the…

Press Releases

I just received the Press Release for my latest suspense novel, Amy’s Quest and thought you may like to see what one looks like for those who have not gotten their book published as yet.

Press releases should be a part of your contract and is important because they are sent to hundreds of stores, outlets, media, etc. This is the one I received just this morning so it can give you an idea as to what to expect. Various publishers may do them a bit differently but they should contain your important information about your book and hopefully entice merchants to purchase them.

I hope this is helpful.

Thanks for stopping by.

Phew – I Did It!

I have used this picture for a very good reason as my header for this blog because that is exactly how I feel most of the time on this computer and the last couple of weeks have been no different, in fact the computer is lucky I didn’t shoot it!

I decided it was time to change my Elah Ministries, Inc website. KUDO’S TO WORDPRESS TECH GUYS AND GALS! It is not easy working with someone who is as dumb as a rock, well maybe just ignorant of how to do things on a computer, and I have probably used half of their helpers in this endeavor. They have ALL been so very helpful, patient, and courteous during my hours of having them walk me through step by step in recreating my website. THANK YOU WORD PRESS HELPERS!



If a website is not easy for me to use – I won’t use it! So I’m hoping my new and improved is user friendly and very easy to use. There are four categories and very easy to click on. I hope you like it and like the “stuff” I have on it. I still have a little more to deal with but I will.

Let me know what you think. Please be nice. 🙂


Thank You

It is the soldier, not the reporter,

who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the soldier, not the poet,

who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the soldier, not the organizer,

who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.

It is the soldier, who salutes the flag,

who serves beneath the flag,

and whose coffin is draped by the flag,

who allows the protestor to burn the flag.

―Fr. Dennis Edward O’Brian, USMC

Special Announcement!


Hello Friends!

I have a special announcement to the world–the Lord has indicated to me that it is time to send the books!

Please let me explain . . .

You may have read previously, when I wrote about the Lord asking me to compile a book of His messages. As I began to do that, ‘prisoners’, arose in my heart so strong that I began to sort messages for an additional book for them as well. It was soon clear that one book was to be two; and ‘His Voice in My Heart Volume II’ has now been written and scheduled to be printed in the spring.

All along it has been strong on my heart to send the books to prisoners.

So when the Lord indicated it was time, I spent an excited and near sleepless night, culling over blog posts on “Inmate Blogger.” A special website, hosted…

Amy’s Quest: A Novel

Amy sucks in a breath and curiosity steps in. “Tom Adkins? What in the world?” She opens the door and standing there, leaning against the wall sucking on a blade of grass, stands Tom with his tanned muscular arms and slender body. Suddenly, memories from years gone by, flood Amy’s mind. She can’t talk. No words will come as she stares at the now man that once was a devil in disguise.

Amy Preston has a quest to fulfill in her young life after facing many challenges throughout her younger years. Follow Amy’s story of rejection, abandonment, perseverance, and determination to find hope and love in a world that seems to have rejected her. Will her deep heart desired quest ever be fulfilled? Will her dreams come true? Find out in the suspense filled pages of Amy’s Quest.

Sue’s new novel is a heartwarming story of a young girl determined to overcome all that she has faced. Her story shows us that hope is never lost completely regardless of the challenges or circumstances we may have faced in the past or in the present. God is always present when we have hope in Him.

God’s Handiwork

I decided since we are 20+ degrees warmer than usual to take a stroll through the neighborhood and around the area to take a few pictures of the beauty God creates. He did good!

Helen, Ga.
Heading down the highway
North Georgia mountains
In the neighborhood
The Lord really did good with this tree.
My street
The Lord had His paint pallet out.
Lake Lanier
One boat on the biggest lake in Ga. and it just “happened” to pass by my lens.

How anyone can gaze upon the beauty that God creates and say there is no God is beyond my comprehension!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my afternoon meandering.
