These poems and the scriptures that inspired them are a collection of works written to provide both inspiration and direction for a vast myriad of life occasions. It is my most fond hope that you will enjoy and use them for what ever purpose you choose: journaling, meditation, inspiration and simply the settling of your soul. My prayer is that you will be blessed in the midst of the storm and refreshed through disquieting experiences. The many scriptures listed have been especially helpful to me during my lifetime and I am sure they are already some of your favorites. Favorite verses Comfort in Distress: Peace returns as the Son does shine through to all mankind. Once again hope turns faith to completeness amidst the stormy skies. Each dark cloud helps fill the void as faith takes its course growing to perfect love. Expressions of joy now fill the emptiness left behind in wake of the hurricane's demise as the tears now flow this time indicating the kindest love received from the Master above gently sweeps over my soul. Patience, the virtue is but learned after such agony overcome. Autumn: Rustling leaves crackle as the tumble to the ground; they make a crashing, crunching, thrashing sort of sound. Biting, blustering winds burnish natural blush-tones upon the many exposed faces. Dazzling arrays of rustic, coronation colors majestically display themselves. Sweet aromas cleave to the adjacent airwaves occasionally spilling out enticingly appealing odors. Sensory perceptions are frantically tweaked to frantically intense levels. It is harvest time; it is fall. Wisdom: Wisdom is an in-depth, divinely inspired insight in to an other wise unknown perception. Wisdom defies definition: it stands immeasurable, limitless and most assuredly without ownership. Wisdom appears to be a gift readily obtainable, never unavailable and mostly left unfulfilled.
