A few sweet words, with lilting sounds has never moved me.                                   Sweet platitudes leave me feeling, the need for so very much more.
My heart seeks a passion, few have within them to give.
My love isn't wrapped in superficiality , in pleasantries , or shallow phrases. Nor can it be filled by frilly hearts given this time of year, in place of my passions boundless nature.
When I love, my love runs deep, deeper than maybe most, would be willing to dive!
I see my heart as all I am, all I have to give. There is nothing more of me, than what is contained in every beat, every pounding of blood that rushes through my veins...keeping who I am , alive. Alive in it's wanting for you to know how my love feels.

Deep because my love comes out of His love for me.

On Birth and Death  My cousin sent this to me, from her Facebook page

Its by a friend Sean Murphy..under the title "randoms"

I believe it's a random thought worth sharing:

 On Birth and Death...

In a mother's womb were two babies.
One asked the other: "Do you believe in life after delivery?”

The other replies, "why, of course. There has to be something after delivery. Maybe we are here to prepare ourselves for what we will be later.

"Nonsense," says the other. "There is no life after delivery. What would that life be?”

"I don't know, but there will be more light than here. Maybe we will walk with our legs and eat from our mouths.”

The other says "This is absurd! Walking is impossible. And eat with our mouths? Ridiculous. The umbilical cord supplies nutrition. Life after delivery is to be excluded. The umbilical cord is too short.”

"I think there is something and maybe it's different than it is here.”

The other replies, "No one has ever come back from there. Delivery is the end of life, and in the after-delivery it is nothing but darkness and anxiety and it takes us nowhere.”

"Well, I don't know," says the other, "but certainly we will see mother and she will take care of us.”

"Mother??" You believe in mother? Where is she now?

"She is all around us. It is in her that we live. Without her there would not be this world.”

"I don't see her, so it's only logical that she doesn't exist." To which the other replied, "sometimes when you're in silence you can hear her, you can perceive her.”
I believe there is a reality after delivery and we are here to prepare ourselves for that reality....

Is Our Faith Soley Ornimental ? Now that our Christmas gift giving is over, and we put or play with whatever we believe Christmas was supposed to mean, away. Do we also put Christ's purpose for living, back in the closet with the ornaments for the tree.
Is our faith soley ornamental or sentimental?
Is Christmas still in the form of our childhood? Related to the joy we wish to give our children, more, than the understanding of our purpose in Him?
Each of us has an unwrapped gift. A purpose He has gifted us ...with, that is held in waiting, in our Soul. Some will never open it, and it will remain as the untouched purpose He gave us. Him aware that the choice of course was our own.
For me, I wanted to be an artist all my life, I thought that was my unwrapped gift. So when I opened it, the creative energy I got, said...this is it! THANK YOU GOD FOR GIVING ME THE ABILITY TO REACH MY LIFE LONG DREAM!
It was of course a dream come true, but is was MY NEED fulfilled, and not the purpose HE WANTED FOR ME.
It's when that creativity slowly made a change. As it became less of a love for art, and more for His need in me.
It was than, that I began to do something I really never thought of, nor even believed I could be something for me. I began to write. And as I wrote of what I loved, slowly that love became His purpose in my being. It became the expression of love. Less of the love whose focus is outward, and more inward as His Hand grasped tightly onto the feeling of my heart. My love for Him became the reason for my being. And I will speak of that Love, for as long as He gives me the breath to write.

Bread feeds the Body, Beauty, the Soul One of my favorite quotes is: "Bread feeds the body, Beauty the Soul."
The beauty of which I speak, is a process by which a person is changed over time. It is part of the transformation that comes with Christ's preparing His Way, in us.
Of course we are good in how we see ourselves, but in Christ, beauty is a transforming element. It can change a complainer, into a supporter.
It can change a hater into a healer. It can change rage, into respect.
The Beauty of ones soul, can only be transformed, if we change the diet we have been fed on. It begins with listening to what we preach, and see if we follow our own message. It happens, when we choose to see life, not always from the perspective of pain, or our own past hurts. But rather in the growth that pain produced. Then that pain becomes beauty, and that beauty exudes gratitude. This transformational beauty produces a new being, who now can be fed by the truth and beauty of its Soul.
May this New Year usher in, the truth and beauty of your Soul

My New Years Poem Thank you for my Vet, my Pet and my TV set.
Thanks for laughter, and music that my ears have been allowed to hear.
I'm thankful for those few, who give me a thought, or click a " like" my way .
I'm grateful for the time I had with those taken from my life, and hope to fill that loss by giving that missing love, to others.
I'm hopeful for a year that brings more for me to be grateful for.
For friends who share their love, by writing on my blog.
Who care enough to read the feelings I need to share.
And whose purpose in my life, has helped fill in the blanks of a family lost , with whom I once shared.
I'm truly grateful for Facebook, and Beliefnet , for giving me a place to express my love of God. And a Country that allows that, without asking to have my head.
I'm grateful to have had a child, to know what it felt like to be a Mother.
To have a husband who I gave, almost every ounce of my love.
I'm grateful for the gift of sight. The gift of reason, something missing in much of my early life
I'm grateful for my car, my legs, and the nearest grocery store.
I'm grateful for perfume, powder and shampoo.
I'm grateful to have Sugar, and to have had 4 other furry friends to love.
Most of all, I'm grateful to my God, without whom, I would have nothing to be grateful for...Happy New Year...and may we all be Blessed by His Love and Truth.
