“It was a match arranged by angels in Heaven but wrecked by demons from Hades.”
H. Melvin James, Tares among the Wheat

“Sorrow for your loss: When someone has been a blessing to you in your life, you will miss them as much when they have passed. Take comfort in realizing that the more they were a blessing, a love, and a reward to you, the more their passing makes you mourn. So let every tear be met with a smile, a missing realized as a blessing.”
H. Melvin James

“One can only hope, as his life comes to end, there were more prayers in his favor, than curses lacking amend. "Tares among the Wheat" H. Melvin James, c. 2019”

“It is amazing that some art or prose of magnificent beauty is not identifiable to the artist. But in the final analysis, the artist or poet must know that they created an exceptional work, and God must be pleased, and if it pleases us too, then the artist’s name on this planet and in this life, is not important.”
H. Melvin James

“Love is the most divine, mysterious and unruly phenomenon of God’s creations, and therein lies love’s glory. -- H. Melvin James, "Tares among the Wheat" c. 2019.”

“Consistent winning breeds arrogance; perpetual losing destroys hope and confidence; but occasional losses of games well played are the makings of good and noble character. "Tares among the Wheat" by H. Melvin James, c. 2019”
