5. A poem I wrote posted on my poetry blog on Jan 2, 2011

OBSTACLES

Inflated mind
dives as deep as it can
but never reaches the shores of the divine
reaching stretching to view a taste of light
to many blind spots
to many corners of darkness

Haughty heart
your just the same
raising to emotional heights
seeking and grasping the truths that be
to high a crest
to high that mantle of greatness

but for you spirit enlightened by Christ
NOTHING is IMPOSSIBLE to you.

6. This week I was invited by a friend of mine to join her for brunch at a Women’s Connection Meeting. These ladies are based in STONECROFT ministries. I had a great time.

Stonecroft offers a variety of brunch, luncheon, and dinner events for women and couples. These groups range from our Women’s Connections and Christian Women’s Clubs to the relaxed After 5 events when the workday is done. Each event includes an entertaining feature and an inspirational speaker who gives personal insight on coming to know God. Busy mothers get a welcome break with our Moms on the Run groups. Kids play under supervision nearby as these get-togethers work as much to stabilize mom’s sanity as they do to provide a Christian message. Thankfully, the two go hand-in-hand! 

Here is a link to find a meeting in your area: http://www.stonecroft.org/elithica2/visual_group_locator.php

7. If you like personality tests…try this one out. It is called a VISUAL DNA test —http://www.youniverse.com/

8. A great quote found by my BFF :

It’s amazing what you can do when you don’t seek all the credit. I find nothing is really one person’s idea. –Dan Tully

Mark Twain

~ lol..I think that quote is funny!!!

10.  A poem : Shames Evil Veil

The shame is based in Envy

for what another has done

when they fly like eagles

the heart sinks like the sun

It’s setting in the west

going down the wrong path

is it recognize it

or will you let it pass?

this time, this time

 see it exactly for what it is

when before shame was always

cloaking this envy’s ugly head

Love does not envy

 strive to be the one who LOVES TRUE-LY

like the Lord Jesus, the one who gave His life

so that you could.
