I can be found in a poor man's house
I can found in a person waiting on his/her spouse

Personally i generally agree with the fact that a couple can work hard to keep it together, but
some times we need to think of domestic violence, adultery, and other things. Situations come
up that places women in positions to determine me or him. In this case i will support divorce.

comments = Great work, Arene!
Someone I respect once said that God told him He was very pleased with me, which
spontaneously brought me to tears because I felt I didn't do all the things I know He expects of
me. I've since learned that we've ALL sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. There's a
song by Mary Mary titled, "So Close" that affected me the same way when I first heard it, but the
message of the song comforted me and taught me not to feel unworthy because the Lord is still
waiting for me to give my life to Him ... just as I am. Your poetry gives me the same type of hope
that the word of God has been teaching me since I can remember. I thank you so much for
sharing the gift He has given you. Please continue to spread His word and His will.

broadens their expectations of what we should expect from eachother as Christian people.  
The problem is there are so many different belief systems and the enemy has clouded our
minds to really see what's going on. and it's as though you go behind the scenes and expose
the darkness for what it is. God bless you in your endeavor to help us all the way to  heaven.

........ THE BIBLE SAY`S FOLLOW THE LAWS OF THE LAND, AND IT ALSO SAY`S " BEAT THE
DEVIL OUT OF YOUR CHILD... IT WILL NOT KILL HIM". AND I SAID THAT TO SAY THIS....YOU
CAN LET THE GOVERNMENT RAISE YOUR KIDS OR YOU CAN RAISE THEM. WE JUST NEED
TO PRAY MORE THAT THEY DO WHATS RIGHT IN THE LONG RUN. REMEMBER THE OLD
SAYING....." IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO RAISE A CHILD". AND WHEN I WAS GROWING UP, YOUR
NEIGHBIOR OR MS. JOHNSON FROM DOWN THE STREET MADE SURE WE ALL DID WHAT
WAS RIGHT IN AND OUT OF SIGHT OF OUR HOMES. AND IF WE DID NOT..... WE GOT IN
TROUBLE WITH THE PEOPLE THAT SEEN IT AND WHEN WE GOT HOME. BUT NOW THE
VILLAGE IS NO MORE. SO AS PARENTS WE MUST FOLLOW THE LAWS OF THE LAND.......
BUT..... NOT WHEN THEY CONFLICK WITH GODS LAW.

LOVE PEACE AND SOUL, STAY BLACK, STAY STRONG,STAY PRAYERFULL, AND ABOVE
ALL ELSE STAY BLESSED

Anger is only one letter short of danger
If someone betrays you once, it is his fault;
If he betrays you twice, it is your fault.

Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.


He, who loses money, loses much;
He, who loses a friend, loses much more;
He, who loses faith, loses all.

Beautiful young people are accidents of nature,
But beautiful old people are works of art.

Learn from the mistakes of others
You can't live long enough to make them all
yourself.

Friends, you and me...
You brought another friend...
And then there were 3...
We started our group...
Our circle of friends...
And like that circle...
There is no beginning or end...

Your words are truly inspirational and need to be heard. I also grew up
during a time of accountability when the womman down that street could
scold you, without your mama going down there, looking to kill her. I
remember sassing a older woman 3 blocks down and around the corner,
telling her she didn't know my mama, only to get home and find out not only
did you know my mama, she knew the phone number, I can almost still
feel the belt's sting today. Taking prayer out of school was truly the
beginning of the end. God bless

comments = Greetings to you,

I am amazed on your quality of work.  Of course you've been
complimented on your expressions through poetry many of times.  Well here is
another compliment to you; of course many of us have experienced trials in
every step of our walk in life and through those trials Satan made the
problem look so big when it wasn’t big at all. If I just would have
been looking towards the hills from which my strength comes from it would
have been alright all along.  

Being born a son of a preacher and a mother of a strong Christian
background, I feel that Satan is after me even more because he do not want
me to follow in there footsteps when it comes to calling on the Lord
when I need him most.  Well before I even met you or read your poetry I
already to decided to make a transition in my life.  And this transition
comprise of doing things differently than before, I really enjoyed your
piece on “Label” how true the words are in that piece.  So I
really want to thank you for posting such a site as this and reaching out to
people like me with your loving words and to reiterate what God has
done for you, me and many others.

Thank you

Having trouble hearing the Holy Spirit?

"Hear and Obey"

Our Holy God is not so pleased
When we neglect to get on our knees
This message is for you
And only for you to receive

Perhaps the Holy Spirit have been grieved
Or is it you really do not believe
What ever the case may be
Please do not be deceived

To Gods word, you better heed
For a clear meaning to be perceived
So that you will not be lost
The Comforter is who it is you need
"Peace Be Still/Clean Heart"

Give me a clean heart Lord so that I may do your will
When my life is stormy, you will keep me still

Let me be the one who serves you in spite of what is done to me
When evil is perpetrated against me, let it be you that I see

Allow me to hold you dear to me when I feel no love from those here
When love is perfected, it is unconditionally, without threats or fear

Please stay with me Lord as you have promised to do
Know that although I make mistakes, Lord I still need you

Take me in your arms Lord and comfort me each day
When I am lost in earthly burdens, lead me Lord to pray

Give me a clean heart Lord so that I may do your will
When my life is stormy, you will keep me still

Grant me permission Lord to escape to a place of peace
When I try to do my will, my burdens seem to increase

May I remain your child Lord and never turn away your love
If I had waited, there is nothing I would have been deprived of

Treat me to your compassion Lord and I will remain your servant
When a cloud comes before me, only to your will I will be observant

Feed me your spirit Lord, so my spirit will glow and I may be as you are
Loving, committed, peaceful, and giving -brighter than the morning star

Stay within my heart Lord so that you go with me where I go
When others see my spirit it will be you they seek to know

Give me a clean heart Lord so that I may do your will
When my life is stormy, you will keep me still

Peace be still

Daniel 3


Earlier today a co-worker started out on a topic of discussing how a mother and father
could seemingly not be there for their child. He thought the parents were being awful
parents and I thought they may have been operating on faith as they had done all they
could do and the best thing was to not be an enabler/co-dependent as well as not
compromise on their Christianity.

The conversation some how turned to the faith of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego as
they refused King Nebuchadnezzar after he had demanded that they worship the god he
had fashioned. Although they were threatened with the punishment of a blazing furnace,
these three men continued to refuse to worship the image:

Daniel 3:16-30
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar,
we are not careful to answer thee in this matter.
If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace,
and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king.
But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the
golden image which thou hast set up.
Like Abraham, these men trusted in God enough to allow Him complete control over their
life even unto death-if God chose!
How can this apply to us today? When we are faced with trials and tribulations, do we
practice faith to have trust in God enough to say it is well? Or do we bow down and
worship the image before us, kids, man, woman, material possessions, status, or religion.
How far are we willing to go to trust in a God who is consistent and love?

"When I first met my wife, I knew she was sent by God because I fought it all the way"!



A child said:
"Mommy and Daddy, can we stay in church every day in the week since you are so much nicer to
each other when we come here?"



A wife said to another wife:
"I am so sorry that my husband treats your husband so bad. I do not see how your husband has
continued to work with my husband as he is so dogmatic and demanding. The other wife
answered: " because they are just alike".

An older gentleman made
statement to a young lady:
"You dropped me like a bad habit"
Her response:
"No, I dropped you before you became one!"
Thank you,
Arene

"Religious vs. Christian"

Religion is a habit practiced just because
Christianity is a life style practice because of love

Religious people think their action does it all
Christians know Christ lifts them if they fall

If you have trouble deciphering between the two
Ask an independent person if Christ is seen in you

Do you feel we benefited or hurt
future generations by taking prayer
and or corporal punishment out of
the schools?
"Generation Used to Be"

It used to be your friend was really your friend when I was young
Mothers taught their daughters and fathers taught their sons

It used to be o.k. to walk to school and stop to tell a stranger the directions
Now when we vote we are confused and we even question the elections

It used to be that sitting down at dinner as a family was valued time
together
Nowadays days it is a rarity if the original family unit has survived the
stormy weather

It used to be that our elderly were taken care of and treasured by the
family unit
Nowadays it is seen at as a burden and the nursing homes and paid help
are left to do it

It used to be that someone would stay home to raise our treasured future
Nowadays better luck getting with an older mate because young is not
necessarily pure

It used to be that a man took pride in being a man by taking care of his
flesh
Nowadays he will fool around although married but stay because he’ll pay
less

It used to be that teachers were held in high respect and their life was a
good example
Nowadays some are not qualified and when sex is needed they use our
kids as samples

It used to be that people were kind and nice to their neighbors and we all
did get along
Nowadays it is hard even for the choir members in a church to agree to
sing a song

It used to be that when a girl got pregnant while in school, she married or
was sent away
Nowadays she’ll stay put because of all the lawsuits filed up to this day

It used to be that a man was excused for his infidelity as boys will just be
boys
Nowadays some die like flies trying to stay hard and women still resort to
their toys

It used to be that you could retire from a job and be able to live a life of
peace
Nowadays consider it a blessing if you earn a pension before you are
deceased

It used to be a Christian could get a Christian from the church and not
consider what each other was
Nowadays it is a gamble because of the down low factor so some may do
better at the club

One thing remains constant: God is God yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
He is still He.
Yea, I may be considered a “youngin” by some of them, but I am still part of
the “Generation Used to Be”

I think of all that i read what stays with me is at the end of your site
stating that the lack of discipline is probably the most relevant part of our
society falling apart.  No accountability for our actions and no
punishment for our bad choices.  I truly agree with you that those things
that kept us on a straight and narrow path to success are now missing
and so many are choosing the wrong road.  Having no firm guidance to
fall back on, no spirituality to rely on, and no corrections along the way to
keep us on track have pushed them into chaos.  
..
Thank you for your words of wisdom and hopefully they will spread to
those seeking them.
Include your state in e-mail if you would like it posted with your

I wasn't able to post a comment on your page without getting an error
message.  I think it's something on my end...not your website
However, I honestly and very strongly feel that we definitely hurt our
future generations by taking prayer and corporal punishment out of
schools.  And I am from SC if you need to post that quote for me, along
with my state
God bless you!
Your World, My World, His Word!
Many Christians find themselves in a situation they did not expect (a
failed relationship or marriage).  A young co-worker asked the
questions "Are people who say they are in a happy marriage, really
happy?"
To have the idea that there is total sunshine is not realistic to me,but
to be in a situation where there is no sunshine is unacceptable.
If we truly follow Gods plan-even the basic principle of doing unto to
others as we would have done to us and being kind to each other  
more than not will result in a beautiful union.
I believe that some people just can not be happy and they drain
others who are. Women have God given intuition,but sometimes
dispel the Holy Spirit by what they feel they want and
think is "love"
as opposed to what God says and men are guided by God but get
misdirected by the craftiness of cunning women with outward
appearances of beauty.
It is so important that we have a personal relationship with God.
See Ephesian 4:32
And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another,
even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
I disobeyed God and married a man in April, 1999 and by October
2000, I was fasting for deliverance. I share with others some of the
personal details to help them see they can overcome all through
Christ. Someone going through her own hell said the other day, "you
seem so strong". If I can help someone else overcome, then what I
went through was not in vain.
My second spouse was so much worst than the first that I actually
wished I had stayed married to the first because it would have
prevented what I got to see the second one do.

Dorthy from O"Fallon , Illinois on July 26, 2008
I think prayer should be used everywhere and corporal punishment
should not be used anywhere.  One should have no need to use
corporal punishment on a "normal" child and using it on a child that is
not "normal" will only make the behavior worst.  I still cringe when I
think of the corporal I received in school.  It was not a pleasant thing.  
That's my story and I am sticking to it
“I See Nothing”

I once thought the opposite of love was hate
Until many years of disrespect and much debate,
Resulted in my solid stance since-
Of the opposite of love being indifference

When I see him, I see nothing

There is no hatred: there is no love
Nothing sacred, nothing was

There is no passion: there is no thought
Nothing lasted, nothing sought

There is no wealth: there is no commitment
Nothing felt, nothing affluent

There is no place: there is no help
Nothing faced, nothing felt

There is no sharing: there is no giving
Nothing caring, nothing living

I once thought the opposite of love was hate
Until many years of disrespect and much debate,
Resulted in my solid stance since-
Of the opposite of love being indifference

When I see him, I see nothing

There is no knowledge: there is no power
Nothing alleged, nothing sour

There is no family: there is no future
Nothing free, nothing sure

There is no pretended: there is no hoped
Nothing recommended, nothing scoped

There is no lasting: there is no forever
Nothing passing, nothing together

There is no bye: there is no us
Nothing why, nothing discussed

I once thought the opposite of love was hate
Until many years of disrespect and much debate,
Resulted in my solid stance since-
Of the opposite of love being indifference

Because when I see him, I see absolutely nothing

Corporal punishment should be started when a child learns right
from wrong and if administered propertly spanking should stop at a
very young age.
Some Rules for Spanking:
Use open hand
Do not break skin
Do not discolor skin
Make sure child knows why they are getting a spanking
Alternate with other punishments
Educate children rewards and punishments
Pray to God for guidance.
Oluseyi (Nurse) on July 31, 2008

I really enjoyed the website, and I honestly believe you put
a lot of work into it.
I also enjoyed the testimonies that you told...
God will take care of the world and our children because the fear of
God is the beginning of wisdom. He will also put us in a position to
always sing praises unto Him. Amen.
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!
This is touchy ,but we can discuss our interpretation
without losing it-please.
Should a man and woman stay married no matter what
since they have vowed?

I believe that if the man and woman still love each other
and are willing to forgive, then there may be hope. I also believe that
couples today are so quick to give up on marriage. It takes hard work!
Arene on August 2, 2008
Arenels@yahoo.com
Hi Gloria,
I agree with you- A man and woman should work it out if they love each
other. I know I stayed married at least seven years longer to be sure
that I had exhausted all I knew to save my marriage. This even included
a particular fast. A couple is a couple and it is up to them to make it
work. Thanks so much for your input. I feel you are right on the money!
I saw a really cute commercial:
The camera was zoomed in on a tall robust man cheering with much
enthusiasm as if he was trying out for the lead cheer leader. As the
camera panned out, he was standing next to his young daughter who
probably was trying out for cheer leading or practicing her cheer leading
routine.
Turns out, it was a commercial expressing the importance of time spent
with children.
I thought of the time when  I was about seven and my dad stomped the
ground all the way walking me back to the fair because I thought I had
seen a snake. " That snake better not mess with my baby" he said as he
periodically stomped the ground.
One night after a  business meeting, I thought I had seen a rat! Actually,
what I had seen was a possum ;non the less, my friend stomped at the
animal to get it to go away.  For a moment, it reminded me of my dad
stomping the ground nearly 40 years prior.
I just thought I would take time to mention some wonderful men. I know so
many- even those who are the single father figure raising their children in
their home.
If you have not heard it lately-You are appreciated!
Thanks and much love, Arene

"God Does Not Lie"
Walk in Love-


Numbers 23:19
God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son
of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall
he not do it? Or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

Matthew 22:14
For many are called, but few are chosen

When we are called to the ministry, it takes a certain person to be our mates.
Improprieties are magnified and rarely forgiven. Sometimes the love of money
overrides the labor of ministry.
Some prophets in the Bible had difficult times given them by their spouses who were
not supportive or did not understand their call.
Sarah told Abraham to take the maiden women.
How did Sarah feel to think that her husband was willing to offer their only son as a
sacrifice because God said so?
How did Moses wife feel when he met God on the mountain top and was there for quite
a while?
What about Jobs wife “curse God and die”?
What would it have done to David for a woman to choose death as opposed to obey him
or his wish to satisfy his flesh?
Although many women are self supportive, they still appear more apt to be supportive
of their husbands call to ministry.
Many take the Bible out of context when they
only report " wives are to be under
subjection to their husbands", but here is what the Bible says:

Ephesians 5

1 Follow God's example, therefore, as dearly loved children
2 and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a
fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
3 But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of
impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for the Lord's people.
4 Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place,
but rather thanksgiving.
5 For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person-such a person is an
idolater--has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God's wrath
comes on those who are disobedient.
7 Therefore do not be partners with them.
8 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light
9 (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth)
10 and find out what pleases the Lord.
11 Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.
12 It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret.
13 But everything exposed by the light becomes visible-and everything that is
illuminated becomes a light.
14 This is why it is said: "Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on
you."
15 Be very careful, then, how you live--not as unwise but as wise,
16 making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.
17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord's will is.
18 Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the
Spirit,
19 speaking to one another with psalms, hymns and songs from the Spirit. Sing and
make music from your heart to the Lord,
20 always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus
Christ.
21 Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.
22 Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord.
23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body,
of which he is the Savior.
24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands
in everything.
25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for
her
26 to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word,
27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any
other blemish, but holy and blameless.
28 In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who
loves his wife loves himself.
29 After all, people have never hated their own bodies, but they feed and care for them,
just as Christ does the church
30 for we are members of his body.
31 "For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and
the two will become one flesh."
32 This is a profound mystery-but I am talking about Christ and the church.
33 However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife
must respect her husband.

Please note verse # 32:
Many times someone who is not Christian will pick up the Bible and attempt to get
someone else to believe in something they do not believe.
Why open up a math book if you do not have any interest in math? Is it not hard
to get someone else interested in a topic in which you have no interest? There is
an order in things and when a man and a woman are practicing Christians: the
man is expected to be the leader in following Christ! (not the deciever, the
cheater, the beater, or the mistreater). See "To the Men" on Poetic Passages Page!

Luke 19:39-40
39
And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy
disciples.
40
And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace,
the stones would immediately cry out.

Aarona from Ca, on August 23, 2008

I believe we do our children an injustice when we do not have prayer
in schools and no corporate punishment in the homes.  In the cruel
world of today it is more difficult to find people who really have your
children's best interest in their heart.  Leaving punishment up to
them can be dangerous.  But I would appreciate someone looking
out for my son.

On the other hand, if children were getting what they needed in the
homes (prayer, guidance and punishment) we would not have to
worry about schools or neighbors having to step in.
QUITA from Illinois, on September 1, 2008

MY THOUGHTS ON PRAYER BEING
TAKEN OUT OF THE SCHOOLS IS THAT ITS VERY
UNFORTUNATE AND SAD AND
SINCE THIS HAS TAKEN PLACE WE'VE HAD UNGODLY THINGS
HAPPEN THAT WAS UNHEARD
OF LIKE SCHOOL SHOOTINGS, KIDS HAVE BEEN TEASED AND
PICKED ON FOR
DECADES BUT NOBODY EVER SHOT UP THE
SCHOOL.PRAYER SHOULD START AT HOME, WE
NEED TO PRAY OVER OUR CHILDREN AND ASK THAT GOD
WOULD TOUCH THEIR
MINDS. PROVERBS 22;6 TELLS US TO TRAIN UP A CHILD IN
THE WAY HE SHOULD
G0:AND WHEN HE IS OLD, HE WILL NOT DEPART FROM IT.
ALTHOUGH THEY MAY STRAY
AT TIMES, THERE IS A SEED THAT HAS BEEN PLANTED THAT
WILL NOT ALLOW THEM
TO DEPART FROM IT, AND WITH PRAYER THEY ARE ABLE GET
BACK ON TRACK.
Tony from Milwaukee on September 21, 2008

Loved  your site, will be doing something similar, and
promote my upcomming book on it, as well as my line of
religous t-shirts.
Your words are truly inspirational and need to be heard. I also
grew up
during a time of accountability when the womman down that
street could
scold you, without your mama going down there, looking to
kill her. I remember sassing a older woman 3 blocks down
and around the corner, telling her she didn't know my mama,
only to get home and find out not only did you know my mama,
she knew the phone number, I can almost still feel the belt's
sting today. Taking prayer out of school was truly the
beginning of the end. God bless
Please support Brother Tony when his book comes out!
"Appreciated"
Romans 8:31 What shall we then say to these things,
if God be for us who can be against us
I would rather be a step behind God- keeping with his plan than go before Him and hoping later that
He will fix mine.
