Be Still
by Charles L Mashburn

Charles L Mashburn, author of BE STILL

I am a born again Christian whose ever increasing love for God and insatiable hunger for His knowledge inspires me to share those things and the love for others God has placed within me with all who care to seek Him.

I am recently retired from a career as a construction superintendent and can now devote my time to my first love--writing. I have been writing daily devotionals for two years, and have a list of approximately 150 friends, relatives and new acquaintances that I email them to each morning.

I also write poetry, short stories and novels, and as I learn my way around this website business, I will be posting some of my stories and poems.

My wife of 15 years, Sherry, and I currently reside in College Station, Texas. My hobbies include golf and gardening, but as I said, my love is writing and I spend most of my time pounding this keyboard and learning more about God as I go.

The most exciting thing He has taught me is that His love is unconditional and He wants me to love Him. I don't know if I will ever be able to adequately return His love, but I am inspired to give it my best effort.

You will learn more about me as you read each daily encouragement, and the main thing you will discover, is I'm just an ordinary guy, who needs the encouragement each day as much, or more, than you do. It's a wild and wooly world we live in, and if I didn't have a loving God to help me along, it would be pretty scary. But I hope you will join me and read along each day as I attempt to encourage you and help you to know that God is a loving God and He wants only the best for us.
