    Showcase: Poem by Pattieanne51

    God's Greatest Gift Forgivness

    God bestows upon us all many gifts for us to share

    And the gift of forgivness is the way we show we care

    He calls to us to forgive all those who caused us pain

    Because forgivness is His way and His great love we'll gain

    If you forgive men for the things they've done to you

    God will always be there to forgive all of your sins too

    We should not judge each other for that's not ours to do

    For that is in the hands of God, He is the judge over me and you

    Be always kind and passionate to those who pass by your way

    You will then recieve from Him great blessings everyday

    Forgive with all your brothers any grievances that you hold

    Then the Lord will give to you great rewards to behold

    So whenever you stand praying forgive with all your heart

    For then our Lord to us all will great affection to impart

    Praise the Lord and never forget the things that he has done

    For it is Him we will face when our time has come

    Journal as Showcase

    Hello, Beyond Blue Friends!


    It seems like in the Great Switch of 2009, the last journal entry was lost that contained the idea for having the Beyond Blue Journal be a showcase for the talents of those who contribute to Group Beyond Blue.


    One of the very neat things about this new layout is how easy it is to upload photos, so now we can showcase our jewelry makers, artists, painters, mandala makers, as well as writers and poets and prayer keepers.  Some other suggestions have been to include inspirational quotes written by our members and maybe a few journal entries now and then with resources and references for mental health issues.


    If you would like to enter a photo or submit a piece of writing, just email me (Melzoom) and let me know.  We will never publish anything on the journal without the author/creator's permission.  


    Love and light!
