There were several reasons, and events that took place in my life that gave me the inspiration to write this book. I discovered my ability to write Poetry at the age of fourteen. At that time it was just something to do. I never thought of it as something of value that could be used to inspire. I have always believed in God and I have always believed that he was a very loving and caring God. I also believe that he answers prayer. I believe that my ability to write Poetry is a special gift from God. I believe that it is a gift that God expects for me to use by writing about things that can inspire others. My inspiration comes from the bible and my experiences in life. I first got the idea to write a book while I was going through treatment in a drug Rehab Center, over ten years ago. There were times when I wanted to read something that would give me the inspiration that I needed to help me deal with my situation in life, as well as my addiction. I also needed something to read to take my mind off myself and my problems at hand. I could not find anything to read that was inspiring, except the Bible. I have always enjoyed reading the Bible; it is still today of great interest to me. I also enjoyed reading stories and Poetry as well. So in order to be able to read about things that were inspiring and of interest to me, I decided that I would write for myself. I began writing at that time, about things that pertained to my situation. As I continued to write, I found that my writing relieved a lot of the stress that I was experiencing at that time. When I write a poem, it seems to me as if someone else has written it. This book was written for me, as well as for others that may be dealing with some of the things that we as people go through in everyday life. It is also written to give Glory to God. It was written to give thought and consideration to things that happen in our lives and to shed some light on things that are sometimes overlooked when they need to be noticed. This book is written for men and woman. It is written in simple form, to be read by anyone, that they may gain the understanding and inspiration that it is intended to give. No book is of any value, unless the people for which it was written can read and understand it. I hope and pray that the events and things that I have written about, will give to someone inspiration and insight along with something to think about that may have a positive effect on a situation that they may be experiencing in their life today.
