10. God worried that Adam would always be lost in the garden because He knew men would never ask directions.

9. God knew that Adam would one day need someone to hand him the TV remote because men don’t want to see what’s on television….they want to see WHAT ELSE is on television.

8. God knew that Adam would never buy a new fig leaf when the seat wore out and therefore would need Eve to get one for him.

7. God knew that Adam would never make a doctor’s appointment for himself.

6. God knew that Adam would never remember which night was garbage night.

5. God knew that if the world were to be populated, there would have to be someone to bear children, because men would never be able to handle it.

4. As “Keeper of the Garden”, Adam would never remember where he put his tools.

3. The scriptural account of Creation indicates that Adam needed someone to blame his troubles on when God caught him hiding in the garden.

2. As the Bible says, “It is not good for man to be alone”. He only ends up getting himself in trouble.

I just had to write and tell you how much I love you and care for you. Yesterday I saw you walking and with your friends. I hoped that soon you'd want Me to walk along with you too; so I painted a sunset to close your day and whispered a cool breeze to refresh you. I waited, you never called. I just kept on loving you.

As I watched you fall asleep last night, I wanted so much to touch you. I spilled moonlight onto your face trickling down your cheeks as so many tears have. You didn't even notice. My sky became cloudy and My tears were the rain.

I love you, oh, if you would only listen. I really love you. I try to say it in the quiet of the green meadows and in the blue sky. The wind whispers My love throughout the treetops and spills it into the vibrant colors of all the love songs for birds to sing to you. I warm you with the clothing of My sunshine and perfume the air with nature's sweet scent. My love for you is deeper than any ocean and greater than any need in your heart. If you'd only realize how I care.

My Father sends His Love. I want you to meet and know Him too. He cares. Fathers are just that way. So please call on Me soon. No matter how long it takes, I will wait. Because I Love You.

Your Friend

~*Angel Whisper*~

I heard a distant whisper come a echoing through the trees

I turned and looked west...then east...but nothing I did see.

I only felt the gentle touch of the midnight breeze.

Back to my book I turned when again I heard a sound

Come sailing on the breeze like an elegant feathered fowl

but still... I was unable to make the whisper out

I arose from my chair and turned around and stared

Scouting out the tree line expecting something there

When again I heard a whisper come floating through the air

Uncertain but quite sure a question is what I heard

Fleeing from the forest with the wings of a bird

Asking "What is it you search upon this earth?"

Silently there I stood unsure if I should speak

Uncertain if this question was even addressed to me

When again with the wind the echo returned to me

This time I spoke but in a whisper of my own

Still in a voice of confidence and authoritative tone

"I seek to fulfill the will of God...and that alone"

I stood there waiting for somekind of response or sign

Listening while looking towards the tree line of the pines

Yes waiting there I did for quite a length of time

I began thinking I'd imagined that this was taking place

or perhaps it was just another testing of my faith

Unsure of either I sat back down to contemplate

How I could grow stronger in my faith as the hour grew late.

i like this poem, but it seems to be incomplete. Iwant to know whats going to happen next. Was it the voice of God? the holy spirit? A friend?

Did you recieve guidance from this voice?

Maybe it was a dream, or maybe and out of body experience.

Fill me in, my curiousity is waiting.

Well I felt it was complete and accomplished how I wanted it to end, but your comments have inspired me to once again pick up my pen~

~*Angel Whisper*~ (Continuation)

While the final stroke of midnight resounded through the air

I stretched my arms and legs and pushed back in my chair

Ready to call it a night and make my way upstairs

To my feet I stood only to turn once more to view

The tree line of the pines that were lit dimly by the moon

when I saw a flickering light off in the distance loom

Several times I blinked my eyes to make sure something was there

For my vision was kind of blurry after dozing in my chair

And the light was nothing more than a smidget of a glare

Intently focused there I stood silent as I stared

Deep into the shadows of the forest before me there

Unsure if I was gazing upon something unknown and rare

For the light began to move with great speed erratically

To an fro it sank and rose changing every color one could dream

"It was unbelievable" I tell you, and unlike anything I've seen

Up and down and all around it fluttered without a sound

Traveling through the forest amongst the trees and along the ground

Surrounded by an aura that dazzled like a diamond crown

What on Earth was this presence that my eyes gazed upon

Was its intent to help and heal or misguide and harm

That's all I could ponder as I continued looking on

Further into the forest it began moving from my view

At a speed too fast to follow on a foot pursuit

And within a matter of moments it vanished into the midnight hue

Several minutes passed but I still stood there in amazement

Staring where I last glimpsed the beauty of its brilliance

But it never did reappear and head back in my direction

As I made my way inside I truly defined two steps forward and one step back

For I would move a little and then stop and turn in my tracks

Hoping again to see whatever it was, but it never did comeback

That night I laid awake for hours analyzing all I'd seen

Trying to comprehend the bigger picture of what it all did mean

Yes it was close to dawn before I finally drifted off in a dream~*

Posted : 14 Jan, 2009 02:06 PM are right. Now i want to know what the light was.Do you write anything else besides poems?

No i didn't post one of my poems. I didn't feel comfortable posting it that way, but i will share one with you:

From my belly flows

Stimulating Prose

Eye popping shots

Toe curling thoughts

Arousing points of view

Fragments you never knew


I hang out with big G

and he talks to me

Like rain talks to the currents of the sea

Cause i'm down with big G

Like the wind whistles in the ears of trees

Cause i'm down with big G

Like the dew sits on the lips of grass

and gravity holds me on this earth till i pass

My life here i know won't last

So i gotta stay CONNECTED, so i'm not AFFECTED by what my natural eyes can see

So i stay down with big G

Well, tell me what you think. I would love to hear someone else opinion, and please be honest.

"Midnight Poetry"

I thought I'd shell out a few words of peace tonight before I go to sleep

and what better way than in poetry to express my thoughts to thee

in a letter that saves a living tree, one that is older than both you and me

firmly rooted in grass of green right next to a peaceful flowing crystal stream

that winds its way through the valley, past the towns and trashcan alleys

until it finally reaches the salty sea with an appearance that no longer is desirable to least not to me

In a way we're just the same, we start out pure and then make mistakes

that either just direct our fate towards what we continue to make of life

or either turn us toward the righteous path traveled by Jesus Christ.

A road that is very much untraveled but well thought of and liked

in a world where sin and temptation are hurled at us left and right

as if to be the pollution a mountain stream has to battle with and fight

before it finally finishes out the course of its short lived life.

Yes I do sometimes feel like this comparison is very real and much alike

as I make my way through the day towards that final end of life

where I'll be old and gray much wiser than today in thought and sight

but thin and frail as slow as a snail having very little strength or might

to crawl out of bed and head outside into the mornings golden light

to watch the misty dew melt away or watch the baby birds take flight

only then to breathe my last and complete this course of life

purified by death from the blood shed by Christ

My Psalm;

My master has called me from the abundance of darkened shadows,

that lye only in the blanket of death. A road of turmoil has uprooted me and choked me out by the mast hand of its crippling vine and piercing thorn. Though I lay here, a corpse decayed to dust. My LORD has cried all the while into the echoing chambers of my heart. Awakened from my slumbering hollow I run with an anxious heart. Now filled to the brim and overflowing my cup. With an everlasting hope, joy, and peace above all that none can follow. And thus He hath said, "I am the Breadth of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger and he that believeth on me shall never thirst." John 6:35

Awe floods the furthest depths of my being

As I gaze hypnotically into the souls of the night

My body crippled by the weakening clutch of exhaustion

My eyes striving to emit consciousness

As the alluded reality of dream consumed my entirety

Here peace overwhelmed me

A peace so pure

My body trembled by its presence

I felt as the burden of time departed from me

Minutes faded into hours, hours into days, and days seemed to mold eternity

The horizon of lilies embraced my every footstep in there brilliance

Their radiance dances in perfect harmony with the cool summer breeze

The sweetest most elaborant scent misted from their mouths

The distance captured mast peaks, chinned with white skirts

Here is my peace

My eternal peace
