Be as 'I AM'

When I touch the world with JOY I reach out with the hand of God. When I touch the world with HOPE I reach out with the hand of God. When I touch the world with PEACE I reach out with the hand of God. But when I touch the world With sorrow and despair: Through bitterness,and hatred Intolerance and anger Selfishness and greed, The hand is all my own. And I have the power To negate and to destroy... Yet the desire is within To be as 'I AM'. So I touch the world with TRUST. I touch the world with COMPASSION. I touch the world with HUMILITY. With God's divine hand in mine I reach out with all His GOODNESS,BEAUTY and TRUTH, And I touch the world with LOVE.

    Smile ~ Although "Yes" again, as "Your Brightness" so wonderfully said, "Love," is definitely "The Answer!!!" ~ "Beautiful Poe 'Dear, Precious & Priceless Sylvia Coulstock;' Sweet & Lovely" ~ "Love & Warmth to You & Yours Always," John! ~ Smile, "Have A Very 'Blessed & Beautiful' Day Dear &, 'Keep Painting Those Pretty Canvas';'" Bye!:) ~

    Smile ~ I love the over-all essence of the message within this warmly created poe although, as "Christ" Himself once said (my own humbled faith & thought) & I am certain many other love filled religeous leaders throughout time believed that, to be a friend with the world is to be in part an enmity towards "God!?" ~ Smile, I am certain that this would be only in regards unto specific matters I believe ~ ....Cont:)

    We do have a choice as to how we "touch the world," Sylvia. I like your perspective -- kind-hearted and upbeat. Keeping touching the world this way and you'll reap the bounty. Congratulations on 45 years of wedded bliss. Now you may have the best of the two, but I'd still like to get to know that brother... Love, Carolyn
