I have been writing most of my life. I wrote a column called, 'Inspiration Point' that ran in several newspapers for 15 years.  Today I publish a free christian magazing.  Would enjoy hearing from you.

Such faith LL ..... the gift of the story teller ...... I don't know about god and the whole religion thing ..... I feel I have faith of a sort .... just don't need to label it .... <br />
understand ? Why is it only this God that can make us happy ?

The reason for me to write is to encourage someone else. When I know that I have done that, I feel good.

<br />
When our dreams aren't coming true and our prayers seem to go unanswered, it may seem easier to give up than to keep going. Many great men and women of our past have walked this same lonely road. Yet, they continued to hope and pray in difficult times.<br />
<br />
In a poem by an unknown author, we are encouraged to keep praying, dreaming and planting seeds of goodness in difficult times.<br />
<br />
I've dreamed many dreams that never came true,<br />
I've seen them vanish at dawn;<br />
But I've realized enough of my dreams, thank God,<br />
To make me dream on.<br />
<br />
I've prayed many prayers when no answer came,<br />
I've waited patient and long,<br />
But answers have come to enough of my prayers,<br />
To make me keep praying on.<br />
<br />
I've trusted many a friend who failed,<br />
And left me to weep alone;<br />
But I've found enough of my friends true,<br />
To make me keep trusting on.<br />
<br />
I've sown many seeds that fell by the way,<br />
For the birds to feed upon,<br />
But I've held enough golden sheaves in my hand,<br />
To make me keep sowing on.<br />
<br />
I've drained the cup of disappointment and pain,<br />
I've gone many days without song,<br />
But I've sipped enough nectar from the rose of life,<br />
To make me want to live on.<br />
<br />
When friends fail us, prayers go unanswered and our lives seem to be filled with disappointment and pain, we may think there is no hope. The night is it's darkest just before the dawn. When a storm covers the sky, we forget how beautiful the sun can be. With each night, the dawn does come and after each storm, the sun does shine, reflecting a rainbow of new hope.<br />
<br />
Don't give up, God does love you. He is with you and He will turn your tears to joy, just as he brings the dawn after the darkest night.

Was this your Inspiration Point and why ............
