Tales from Middle Earth

On January 26, 1996 we landed in Middle Earth. We were continuing a journey that had began many years before and we had no idea where we were going or what we were going to do. This blog is an attempt to chronicle not only our story but hopefully the story that God is telling in Middle Earth. Middle Earth is not like the West and it is not like the East. It is a very different sort of place with a unique story. It can be a very sensitive place as well and as a result I will be referencing all people and place names to JRR Tolkien's the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. The people I will tell you about are real even if you have to hear about them with a fictional name. The estute will probably figure out who and where I am but I ask you to keep that information to yourself. What God is doing here is exciting and powerful and you deserve a better guide than I but since there are very few who know this story I will have to do. You can call me Strider.

Beautifully told - this runs "rings" around other field tales. During this special time Middle Earth, we are uplifting for you, and the fair maids in Strider's household. Please share the maiden's tales, too.
