C is for Courage

1:00 AM

I am hoping this summer to write and edit Courage and Corruption. I have the basic outline already made up and I even have written the prologue, which I would like to share with you today.

The young have always played an important part in the history of Taelis. It was never truer than in this, my third tale: a tale of five siblings who were sent to hide from a war, and ended up leading a nation.

It starts many years after my last tale; yet, the two are very much intertwined. Brianna and her husband, John (formally known as The Archer) had ruled the country well and in peace. Yet, providence did not see fit to bless them with children. As they grew older, people began to fear that the kingdom would descend into war and mayhem, as it had in its early days.

God, who is the author of our lives, orchestrated everything so that even the dark days of fear were used to bring about his purpose for young Christopher, his family, and the country of Taelis. There is no lesson I need to be reminded of more on the days when I long to return to my homeland. I must remember that God is working all out for good, even my exile. I will complete the task set before me, to set these stories down on paper for all to read.

For all those who are in your youth and reading these words, remember that you are never too young to start following God’s plans for your life. Follow the example of the siblings in this tale who overcame great obstacles to do the tasks God had prepared for you, before the creation of the world.
