A Tale of Two Kings – Introduction

Greetings, readers.  I promised all of you a story, didn’t I?  Well, I didn’t mean to be so long in getting back to you all.

It’s been quite the holiday vacation around here.  But I won’t bore you with details.  Suffice it to say, we’re finally back home, our older son is back in college, and our regular daily schedule has begun again.  So things are settling back down to a routine.  Of sorts.

Well, let’s begin.  Once upon a time…

… a long time ago…

there was this girl.

Yep, I know.  This is supposed to be a story about two kings.  Well, the girl came first.  And you need to know about the girl.

This girl became extremely passionate about two topics – medical conditions – during high school and college.  Well, one in high school, and the other in college.  She spent a lot of time reading about these two topics, and even wrote papers on each.  It was a curious thing, she mused, for her thoughts to be captivated by these two topics.  After all, she didn’t know anyone who suffered from either condition, so why did she think about them all the time?

Little did she know that both conditions would be a large part of her future.

Now, as a side note, I believe it’s a good thing God doesn’t allow us to know about our futures before they happen, you know?  If He did, we might make a lot of wrong choices, simply because we might run from what’s ahead of us.  (I’m wandering from my story, I know, but just think about it.  Everyone talks about running from the unknown, but think of how much you might run away from your future if you knew what was going to happen, say, ten or twenty years in advance?)

Have I whet your appetite enough to come back for the rest of the story?  Please do.  And in the mean time, think about your pasts, readers, and all the things that have happened to each of you.  What would you have done, if you had known about your future well in advance?  Would you have changed course, and would those changes have been better than what you actually did?

I’ll see you in a couple of days with more of the story.



  1. Michelle, sorry did I miss something? You said two topics but only mentioned medical conditions. But I do want to read more!!! 🙂

    • Oh, wow, Deborah, I didn’t make that clear! Sorry! It was two different medical conditions. One medical condition captured her thoughts during high school, and one medical condition captured her thoughts during college.

      • Okay thanks!!! Sometimes it just doesn’t click…..forgive me!
