The Wounded find Ricky Belisle and Marie-Jeanne Charbonneau have left their remote Lake Superior village, a world circumscribed by Life Magazine and the Saturday Evening Post, the radio, stories told around a kitchen table during winter storms, and such news as an occasional visitor might bring from the city. Marie-Jeanne, younger by months than Ricky, wiser by years, understood that two created such meaning as vague words––love; respect, sharing, kindness––conveyed through shared experience; a cup of coffee, a sunset, a birth. M.J. saw the world built in this order: man and wife, immediate and extended family, community, nation. Richard, however, would be judged worthy by ´´them,´´ the men in his clan, his tribe, his nation. Yet, truth be told, that wasn't the complete calculation, if calculation there were. In the eyes of most, Ricky had proven himself worthy. It wasn't enough. He would prove himself worthy of his childhood friend by clearing the debt his parents took on for his sin. And, had his priest been wiser or better read, he might have introduced the young man to the teachings of St. Augustine, ´´Lord, make me chaste, but not yet.´´ Ricky Belisle makes his way across the American south seeking redemption and adventure. Soldiering, the family profession, is no longer available; it is the nuclear age. He plays baseball, is jailed, injured, laid low. M.J. finds him on a Colorado mountain recovering from injuries to body and soul. Indifferent nature tests them yet again.
From the afterword:In the ´´it can now be told” department, we may now reveal that the mysterious ´´Commander X” was none other than the enlightened Venusian sage Commander Valiant Thor. Unfortunately, this sleight of hand was necessary during most of the 20th century due to heightened Cold War tensions and various threats that had been made against Thor and his family, who were working hard to end warfare and nuclear bomb testing on Earth. Since conspiracy researchers like Jim Keith, William Cooper, and Gray Barker had the ear of the public, it was crucial they be among the first Earthlings contacted. Thor worked closely with Barker, in particular, contacting many UFO witnesses and convincing them to write books and articles about their experiences, thus keeping flying saucers and the machinations of the deep state at the forefront of alternative news. Thor was not appreciated at all in the Soviet Union and was constantly under surveillance by Eastern Bloc agents. Today, he remains a staunch opponent of dictatorial regimes and their attempts to control Pres. Donald Trump. (Thor has even claimed that Trump is the Antichrist, penning a book on the subject called Oh, Hear Ye! The Trump of the Super-Deceiver: Mystery Man of Darkness, 666.) Thor even went undercover as a US military trainer and intelligence official, working with Air Force and Navy officers such as Dan Fry, Calvin C. Girvin, Albert K. Bender, William F. Hamilton, William Mills Tompkins, and Mel Noel. Many of these contacts came before Thor’s forced internment in the Pentagon between 1957 and 1960, after which the Thor family became more circumspect about working with citizens of our planet. At one time, Thor worked closely with Nikola Tesla, sharing all the knowledge he could with that advanced human, even though some of it may have skirted the fringes of galaxial law (which states that we should merely observe underdeveloped species rather than a 1.

Welcome to Life After Divorce. We´re proud of you for taking the necessary steps in caring for yourself. This is no time to feel guilty about making sure you´re okay. We want you to know that you´ll be better than okay because you´ll be making tough decisions based on timeless advice. Dr. Scott and Leah Silverii have both survived the soul-shattering effects of divorce. They also know the beauty of restoration. Walk with them through the process and into the light of recovery Surviving divorce, reclaiming your worth, and rebuilding life is as challenging as it is a wonderful opportunity to see God´s will at work. Leah and I know what it feels like to hit the dark and bumpy patches of life, but we thank God for being a redeeming God of second chances.Divorce is a difficult topic, and it´s possible you´re still going through the process or struggling with the aftermath. We felt led to reach out in these times because we´ve not only been there, but we both wish there´d been someone or something like this book to offer us straight truths in turbulent times. We´re not going to sugarcoat it, or encourage you to say sweet things about yourself in a mirror. Is divorce God´s plan for family? Of course not. A healthy, nuclear family is what He wants for us. But there have been many families in the bible that didn´t meet God´s plan, still He extended grace and blessed them because they sought His heart. And better yet, God used these ´´less than ideal´´ families like theirs and ours to build His kingdom. We want to encourage you that through God´s love and your faithfulness, it is possible to find healing, hope, and happiness post-divorce. Our F-A-I-T-H model for recovery to romance provides practical steps and biblical truths for the season of transitioning from defeat to victory. Although you may feel like it, you´re not alone. The next time you´re in church, look around and you´ll see many believers who have been divorced or who are remarried with blended families. While most churches have a heart for the hurting, few provide the direct support to the divorced, or those remarrying and blending families. The effects of those divorces extend beyond single parents, as studies show thirty-five percent of children from divorced parents leave the church all together. We´re not theologians. We´re people just like you, who love God, but who make mistakes. We´ve endured the tragedy of divorce and know without fail that Christ has blessed us with each other. Now, we want to help and encourage others by sharing our journey. There is always hope, Scott and Leah Silverii
