How does one make peace with those who want you dead!

It seems everyone is screaming for peace´
Peace peace peace

I want what you have and if you give it to me we will
have peace

If you don't give me what I want (land, food, water, clothes, etcetera)
I will fight you for it till one of us is dead

The elite are blamed for the poor being poor
you say they have all the money thus are oppressors of the poor

You say I want your money if you give it to me we have peace
If not I will take it because you have too much I am entitled to some of yours

Everyone blames everyone else for their shortcomings
Look in the mirror and see you are the one looking back

That face in the mirror is your biggest problem
You are responsible for what you do and how you do it

You can bring peace by being accountable for
what YOU have worked to earn

Most of those you think are GREEDY ELITE
have worked very hard to get what they have

Now you say I want what you have and I will take it
you scream peace peace but do you work for peace

You say the elite are greedy * I say you are the greedy ones
You want everything without working for it

You are not entitled to it * you did not work for it * it is not yours
Are you not the ones who are hypocrites

Do you protect your children and family to keep them safe
You are willing to make them an instrument of war

If you wanted peace you would allow others to live in peace
How does one make peace with those who want you dead!

´Kathy Collier 7 * 2014

Micah 3:5 Holy Bible
This is what the LORD says:
"As for the prophets who lead my people astray,
they proclaim 'peace' if they have something to eat,
but prepare to wage war against anyone who refuses to feed them.


Music: Andre Rieu * Exodus
Music composed by Ernest Gold: Lyrics by Pat Boone

Lyrics to The Exodus Song :

This land is mine, God gave this land to me
This brave and ancient land to me
And when the morning sun reveals her hills and plain
Then I see a land where children can run free

So take my hand and walk this land with me
And walk this lovely land with me
Though I am just a man, when you are by my side
With the help of God, I know I can be strong

Though I am just a man, when you are by my side
With the help of God, I know I can be strong

To make this land our home
If I must fight, I'll fight to make this land our own
Until I die, this land is mine

´Pat Boone

The movie Exodus was about the Jewish people resettling Israel
The Land God gave to them


Joshua 21:43 King James Bible

And the LORD gave unto Israel
all the land which he swore to give unto their fathers;
and they possessed it, and dwelt therein.


God Bless America and God Bless Israel


Psalm 34:14

Turn away from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.





Knowing Your Place In The World And Taking It

A Series of Extracts by Cisslyn Ramdeo

The universe was designed by the Almighty; a meticulous design.

Everything therein was placed methodically and systematically.

Almighty God did not create heaven and earth by guess, a whim or a fancy.

He created it in a particular way to serve a particular purpose.

In His ingenious creation of the earth

He designated and allotted a place for everyone;

In the air, water and on the earth for animals and on the earth for people.

This is why there will always be rank, status, standard and inevitably sub*standard.

Whether we like it or not, this is the design of the world;

this is how the world is designed.

There is a place for everyone in the world;

There is a particular place for everyone in this world.

Strong Love

Be alert and be firm,
Be courageous and strong;
With love in the long term,
And nothing will go wrong.

Be solid as a rock,
In your faith stand fast;
Stay on time like a clock,
God forgives for your past.

Devote to family,
Urge sisters and brothers;
In helping happily,
Their fathers and mothers.

Follow the example,
Anyone else who shares;
Showing other people,
Merely how the Lord cares.

Their hard work they labor,
Show them without a doubt;
Give help to your neighbor,
Regardless time or amount.

Then they will feel consoled,
Feeling jubilation;
Humbled rather than bold,
In appreciation.

You must watch and stand fast,
In your faith never quit;
So it will ever last,
Having not to forfeit.

Do all as done in love.
For first fruits of labor;
God blesses from above,
Comforting in slumber.

So refresh your spirit,
As lacking in supply;
What you do in merit,
God fills to multiply.

What I'm to give?

Never before have the walls felt confining
yet these days I feel each wall closing in
the shadows once small now covering my body
clawing away at my will to win´
strength once my mentor fighting life´s battles
now only mocks me as I struggle to rise
fortune was never a card I could call on
hate was the enemy I always despised´
yet here I am choking on all that confines me
gasping for air but still fighting to live
wondering what more this life has to offer?
but wondering more of what I´m to give?



Heartless Love

Heartless Love

In a heartbeat I have fallen from your grace,
All I want now is to leave this lonely place.
You took my heart into your cold hands,
Then crushed and buried it somewhere in the sands.
All I had hoped and wished for, was in vain,
Because by my side you never wanted to remain.
You held me close and told me beautiful lies,
Then sent me a message with a heartless goodbye.
I was blinded by what was not really real,
And you never gave a damn bout how you made me feel.
All the pain I hold inside is because of you,
Never again will I believe love's whispers to be true.
The darkness hovers over my mind,
And a way to ease the pain I cannot find.
A burning love with broken promises,
Haunt my dreams til' the sun finally rises.
When I remember the times we used to share,
It hurts to know your love was never really there.
Your face too beautiful to forget, so painful to recall,
But I vow I shall never again be forced to fall.
Your life had no place for me or our love story.
For i wasnt your third or fourth, but your last priority.
I wish I had never met you all those years ago,
The friendship's gone and now emptiness is all I know.
This pain may subside someday but I dont know when,
Faith and hope now dead, my heart will never love again.



Heaven's Gain Is Earth's Great Loss

The passing of Mrs. John Nelson has affected many people.
She had a demeanor of something wonderful about her that never stopped.
Miss Jane, as I would love to address her, is a treasure to so many people.
It is grievous that we had to lose her a few short days ago.
The Lord is always right in everything He does without fail.
He needed her to be with Him; in Him, there is life everlasting.
I praise the Lord for the privilege of having known her for forty*nine years.

Tim McGraw on the stereo
Have a headache
It can go
Wearing my youngest son's
Pair of old worn out
Cut off pants
Sitting outside writing these rants

Neighbor through mowing his lawn
While I still need to get to
Getting mine on
Justin and his dog, Bella
Left in a Chevy pickup
Hear some pounding of another neighbor
Getting some shingles up

Cool breeze blowing through
This little Hell*Town
Just glad to live another day
Where no one really minds
If I live alone
With this music
I call divine

Wanted to make it to the
Church today
But I felt too sick
At Nine A.M.
There's always other Sundays
Out here on the back lawn
With my stinky little dog
She's laying on he grass
Getting her guard on
To bark at any little thing
Please don't bark yet
Until this headache leaves
This old brain

Saw Levi Friday night
Buying beer at the
Pendleton Store
He was going to the mountains
Shouting out youth
From his fountain of fountains
Right through his eyes
A kid, but a nice guy of guys
That I am glad to know
It's the kind of thing I have let go

But I can love him anyway
Just like his momma does today
A couple blocks over
He'll find some sweet young lover
That he never has to be embarrassed
That he caressed
But he gave me hope
When he was drunk
And said I was hot enough to grope

You may think what I write
Is silly
You may think I am a little
You may think this town's nothing
With a poet writing like lazy
On a perfect Sunday morning
Let me give you a warning
It's my town now
And I keep coming back
So don't think there's anything
It lacks
On a perfect day

And if you do
Head on out
Be on your way
Long gone
While I play these songs
And write these poems
Where my heart longs
For the people here
And to know them
And to learn to love them
As much as I do my own children
Because a town can grow on you
As the garden I planted in
This Helix ground

So you come visit here
As Sunday morning's
Coming up and around
The bend
Where the breeze, the mud
The weeds, the sun
Won't leave you bummed
If you stay here long
They'll become your
Best friends
Make you tough
Penatrate your heart
As you are a part
Of this Sunday morning's
And somehow
This town
Will save you from

A country kind of wealth
Worth the weight of
A ton of gold
When you're 16 in
Your mind doing fine
To the Sunday morning shine
Of here
Wishing your Sunday is going as dear.
