I am Usually a person of many words, inside or out.
Well today is different, Yet I speak wisely.
This is my Soul, and my Lord Jesus Christs' Grace.
I will not fall into the fiery pits of hell,
and lose all those whom I love, salvation says so.
In Him do I always trust, to return and save us all,
Praise always to God completely by Grace of Jesus Christ
never forsaking the Holy Ghost.
Olny after much prayer do i understand that when you ask God to take your burdens away,then i should never take them back.Moving forward and praising Him for directing us in our lifes each day to make it in glorifying Him.
I express myself through my artwork.
I feel that art and music are to areas that transcend all languages. You hear a melody or see an image and it does something to you. It can make you happy, or bring back a memory, it can touch your soul.
I'm honored that I've been able to hone my gift so that I can paint for the world and bring happiness to many through this medium.
Hello. I am new to beliefnet and new to this group. I am a writer, artist and Stephen Minister. On my website, www.inspiredreflections.info , I share "Reflections" on Life and Marriage. I am working on my first book, "Your Life, Your Choice" which gives 5 simple steps for harnessing the power of your choices to bring more Love, Joy and Peace into your life. I look forward to getting to know you!
Peace be with you,

It’s one but not at the same time.
One believing in trying it again, but not at the same time.
Its two two hearts singing solo
Its two hearts living in separate lives
Remembering when one believed in the two
Its three regrets and not ever enough time to repair the hurt
Its never forgetting the bad
Its four times that the same hill has been climbed only to find a cliff that neither one is brave enough to jump off of.
Its five days since the last time I believed we could try again.
Its one more try to find another steep place that neither one has enough energy to tackle.
Its one too many tries on a brick wall that has mortar too thick to crack.
Two hearts broken and another love gone bad.
When will the numbers add up and when will what I try make a difference.

Four Worms and a Lesson
A minister decided that a visual demonstration would add emphasis to his Sunday sermon. Four worms were placed into four separate jars. The first worm was put into a container of alcohol. The second worm was put into a container of cigarette smoke. The third worm was put into a container of chocolate syrup. The fourth worm was put into a container of good clean soil. At the conclusion of the sermon, the Minister reported the following results:
The first worm in alcohol - Dead.
The second worm in cigarette smoke - Dead
Third worm in chocolate syrup - Dead
Fourth worm in good clean soil - Alive.
So the Minister asked the congregation, "What can you learn from this demonstration?" Maxine was sitting in the back, quickly raised her hand and said,
"As long as you drink, smoke and eat chocolate, you won't have worms!"
That pretty much ended the service...
How can you love Me
When you don't see Me?
Through the hustle and the bustle
Of your every day life
You don't take the time out to see
My masterpiece on the sky
Or the simple dewdrop on the rose.
You are too busy to notice Me
Who formed thee out of the dirt and My breath
Who gave thee your freedom and your life,
Who cut you from your bonds of sin
And raised you to the status
Of My Son's dear Friends.
How can you love Me,
When you don't know Me.
When you don't listen to My whisper
In the quiet of the night?
I whisper to you of the promises
I will give you if you only will turn to Me.
I whisper to you of the wonders we will do,
But you refuse to notice Me.
It's such a shame too.
I had such plans for us, My Dearest One.
What plans I had!
The joy we would have shared!
But, alas! You cling to the world's idols
But not to Me.
