O~n occasion, the mind accretes to, "the hurt," when facing
V~icissitudes; blinded by, "the better nature," causing to
E~fface the focus from the Architect while simultaneously
R~aising questions why. Impatience encourages the
C~ollaboration of misery to consult with those of the same mind.
O~nly then to find temporary pleasure due to humanly clocks power.
M~entally drained by dint of attacks upon attacks; seemingly to be
I~nsufferable and impregnable. Though the Architect,
N~ever vanishes and will never vanish from the scene. So,
G~ive and release all apprehension with entire trust.
S~torms will arise from daybreak to nightfall. It must be remembered the
A~rchitect of whom in total control oversees misery so
N~ever question the authority. Become courageous and
D~etermined that, "This Too Shall Pass." Be conscious of
S~trength, wisdom and knowledge evolving afterwards.
T~oday, focus on the size of the Architect and Not
O~n what the mind can't do. Always
R~emain prayerful and faith filled.
M~ust never ignore the Architect of whom created life's puzzle
S~hifting all elements of sand in place from day to day.

Contest Title: Build Your Own Sand
on this special day
I doest say
that thy mother is of graceful sort
it hath been said she is devine
and I do holdeth this to be true
now dearest mother may I be so bold
to tell you the sun still shinest on one so old
as true as this be
you still grasp your faith
like the roots of a tree
tis said you are wise
and this I have found true
the eye doeth grow deceived when it is drawn upon you
as your thoughts become known
only then your age is shown
Trinity refining me..'
If your burdens have you down and
You feel you’ve lost your way, you
Need not wander life along
A path that aimless, strays
Friend to friend, you’re not alone
I’m here, and will abide
Sailing through the storms of woe
Right beside you, I will guide
Behind you, in your sails I’ll blow
Like the wind that carries you on
A new horizon will be your map to
Bridge the great beyond
Over the side, in faith you’ll step on the
Troubled and shifting tide
Water will roil and fear may call, but
I am here, and will abide
Will you trust and walk with me?
Ease in and you may find
Your faith will grow upon each step and
Mind the test of time

You can sing praises and worship
You can tell all about what you have
Tell them that your lord as won.
The only rule you have to follow,
Is to love your god, for all with out
But for me at this moment in time.
I write this verse, for my lord and
The keeper of god’s love.
Being an Angel in the sky.
Watching you and I.
Sitting there on your cloud,
Playing cards, and hanging around.
Playing your harp.
Singing a song.
Hoping humans come along.
God says “ Angel go to earth, go find the person who spoke first
Bring him here bring him to me,
This is your mission you see. “
“Yes my lord.” The angel as gone to find the first person,
Who sang this song.
Amazing Grace, that super song.
Go find john, go find him, and bring along,
We need to know how he,
sung that song.
The slaves that have long gone,
The ships that carried this beautiful song,
Oh my gosh were as John gone?
He can’t go far, the planets so small,
Why his he not standing tall?
The tune for that song he did not create,
It was hummed by his cargo
A, dark mass of slaves in a horrid state.
John must of thought this was bad, and it made him so very sad .
G od's unmerited favor toward mankind
R esurrection of our Lord and Savior
A scension to the right hand of God the Father
C ross on which He suffered and died for our sins
E ternal life through the shedding of His blood
Yearning to be free from sin and self,
I bow before my Savior God and King.
Earnestly I seek Your tender mercies,
Laying down my life an offering.
Dying to my will I live for Yours.
How they see us from afar.
I saw a planet it was blue,
It had a white tip. and a bottom one too.
The people here are funny lot,
Some like to kill, and some do.
Others destroy, thinking properties a toy.
They can create, so much good.
But they also build killing type stuff.
Tanks, and Mortars, and torture chambers for you.
But hey all so build hospitals too,
What a strange bunch .we see from afar.
They fight and quarrel, for the common good.
Then take their wondered, to be loved.
Oh what miss understood, bunch these are,
I’m glad were looking from afar.
Life on the planet must be mad,
Not knowing, if your happy or sad.
Look at that place over there!
Stay away, stay clear!
Let god our lord, sort them out.
He’s the only one with such clout,
Maybe he can sort them out.
Admit you are a sinner in need of saving grace
Believe Christ died and rose again delivering you in faith
Commit your heart and soul to live Holy unto Him
C onsider how unique God made MAN
A dding vision and emotion, there IS
S o much man has invented and MADE,
T hose raw ingredients mixed IN.
N ever picture a big eye in the sky, GOD'S
E specially not a bloated brain, Love is his IMAGE
T ake care to nourish, preserve, AND
S ustain your body. It is his LIKENESS.
"There but for the grace of God go I",I heard them say,then they passed an addict begging on the streets and walked away,
They call themselves God's children and through Gods lands they roam,but the homeless don't get charity,cause charity begins at home,
There but for the grace of God go I and don't ya know,don't bother asking for thier help they'll only turn and go,
So much for christian values leave them stacked up in the shelf,they'll tell you God will only help the man who helps himself,
There but for the grace of God go I it's just a farce,so take your Christian values now and shove them up your arse,
It's nothing but hypocrisy it's flagrant and it's rife,ther quick enough to pass remarks on someone elses life,
So ther but for the grace of God go I 'n' aint it true,don't think that you're above it friend,one day it could be you.
Intoxication.....good or bad?
Not good if you're intoxicated or under the influence of alcohol. My
Future is important to me. Young ones,
Little ones, old ones. The
United States should be drug and alcohol free,
Even if it takes a lifetime.
No one should ever do drugs or become intoxicated.
Change can happen but it starts with you!
Everyone can make a difference.

Contest...Bridge Over Troubled Water
Love with all you heart
I need to forgive daily
Very few know him
Everyone can care for someone
If the days seem too long to bear
You should call on God, he is always there.
Need someone to talk to?
A person who you know will always be true?
Friend, talk to jesus, he will deliver you
I'm struggling with doubt and sorrow
Sailing through this world is harder than I thought it would be
Right in front of me lies tomorrow
Behind me are the mistakes, always taunting me
Like the seprent did to Eve
A woman was walking, searching for "The Healer"
Bridge after bridge she crossed, with no one there to help her
Over and over she fell, growing weaker with every step
Troubled with her sin, she wondered, will God's promise be kept
Water! She found water, and the Master was waiting, and into his arms, the woman lept.
I am the Lord your God, and I'm so glad you found me.
Will I heal you? Of course, my child.
Ease your mind, little one. Your soul is now set free
Your heart has been hurt and you've been sick for a while
Mind you, I'm your father. I've been with you, mile after mile.
J ust about ready to break through the clouds
E very eye shall see the Messiah in His glory
S ome will be taken up; others will remain behind
U need to read the Holy Book to understand this story
S o what will you do with this man named Jesus?
L earn to trust and obey his commandments
I s eternity in a lake of fire worth a short while of pleasure?
V ery soon we will all be standing before his book of life
E ach and every person upon the face of this earth
S o decide today; Will you choose Jesus or the ole serpent?

A-lpha and Omega
C-hrist is the head of my life
H-eaven is my home; I am
R-edeemed by His blood. He has
I-nstilled me with integrity. My
S-ins by grace are forgiven. I am
T-hankful for His grace, for
I-n His grace I am made whole
A-ll my needs are met. For
N-othing is too hard for my God
N-ow faith is the hope that I claim
O-mnipotent and omnipresent is He
T-rusting Him, always is the key
P-erfect in all of His ways
E-verlasting love, shared
R-epentance being available to all
F-ather alone, He is the
E-ver present God
C-hosen and crowned with glory
T-rinity, three in one; He is the
B-eginning and the end. I shall give
U-ltimate prayer and praise.
T-rials and tribulations are the tests
F-orgiveness is our reward. We know that
O-nly God is perfect. In
R-evelations God discloses Himself
G-od gives abundant provisions
I-mmanuel being God with us from the
V-irgin birth of Christ. He is the
E-vidence of good. I exalt His Holy
N-ame as forever I set at His feet.
Purpose of being
In His true will by witnessing to people through your life is
Nothing short of amazing.
His goodness and light can only be properly
Explained by His
Real children---the ones that listen and love Him
Praise Him for His Holy descent to earth
Revere his Virgin Mother giving birth
Annoint His head and feet with Oil of Myrrah
Illuminate His Mother Mary's care
Spiritually His soul was blessed
Extolling His Father at God's behest
Teacher He was to all who stopped and heard
Honour his forbearance of wrath incurred
Exemplary His traits for all to see
Lauded he was when died at Calvary
Obeisance His selfless sacrifice
Redeemer He is of man's wayward vice
Deliverer He's there at our demise
M oring Breaks
O n the day I awake
R ising to the morning sun
N ight has ended, the day has just begun
I n that moment in time
N ever again to look behind
G ood morning world, good morning, Dear Lord.
B right is the sun through the window shade
R eaches out to me to pray
E ager to see what lies ahead
A ngels surrounds me with a hedge
K eeping me from harm all day long
S afe am I, as Morning Breaks, to sing my song.
