My [Non-Offensive] “Grocer and Writer” Pieces

I am a Christian and I made some wrong choices when writing these stories, especially by allowing my two main characters to commit the sins of fornication and cohabitation.

There were other forms of sin in these stories besides that and The Good Lord had gotten a hold of me for writing these.

These stories are pretty much an observation of what I see going on in the Post Modern world. After all, in the words of Oscar Wilde, “Art imitates life and life imitates art.”

What I had observed dates back to about 2006, but I didn’t begin writing these until June 30, 2014.

I know there are sinful and offensive happenings that occur in these stories, but more than anything else I was trying to teach that everyone deserves to love and be loved when I decided to write these stories.

There were countless inspirations that caused me to write these stories, many of them occurring only on the sub conscious level. I frequently find myself hearing a song, seeing a piece of artwork, visiting a certain place or a personal memory resurfaces and I find myself realizing that they all inspired these stories.

On a personal note, my ex wife hated and probably still hates these stories with a hot passion. Several people in her family would have been totally angered if they knew I had written something like this as well. They would have been so angered because it is in complete conflict with the narrative of the agenda they subscribe to.

There is too much sinning in these stories and The Good Lord started to withold blessings from my life for making them public.  When I asked Him why my blessings were being witheld, He told me because of the cohabitation, fornication and racial hatred that take place in here.  Because such themes do not honor God, I took it down in order to make it right.  My walk with God is more important to me than what my readers think of me, believe it or not…Sorry not sorry.

UPDATE:

Because these are broken down into pieces, I feel it is okay to show the pieces where there are no sins occuring.

Here are the pieces that show the good values I was trying to teach:

The Prequel

A Meeting in the Park

A Telephone Conversation on Black Friday

A Date at The Riverwalk

I cannot show any other pieces other than these with a good conscience and, actually me showing these is pushing my conscience, mostly because I know the whole series from beginning to end.
