THESE POEMS ARE A COLLECTION OF EMOTIONS I WAS FEELING WHILE GOING THOUGH THE LOST OF MY ONLY BROTHER, TO A BRUTAL MURDER, HE WAS THE YOUNGEST OF MY MOTHER'S CHILDREN;  MY SEPARATION THEN DIVORCE FROM MY BEST FRIEND OF 21 YEARS;  AND THE SEPARATION FROM MY BIOLOGICAL FAMILY . I WAS HURTING FEELING LOST BUT STILL FELT A STRONG PRESENCE OF GOD, WHEN MY OLDEST DAUGHTER WAS SHOT IN THE HEAD AND LEFT IN HER CLOSET IN A HOME INVASION, MY THOUGHTS WERE, MY GOD! " BUT ONLY GOD!" COULD SUSTAIN ME THOUGH SUCH TRIALS, AND THESE WERE ONLY MY VALLEY HIGHS, THERE WERE MANY LOWS WHERE I HELD ON TO HIS UNCHANGING HAND, HIS WORD PROMISED ME THAT HE WOULD NOT BUT MORE ON ME THAN I COULD BARE, AND THOUGH IT ALL, WHEN I FELT I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND THE HAND OF GOD, I CONTINUED IN MY FAITH, BECAUSE I TRULY TRUST THE HEART OF MY FATHER! I KNOW TODAY only MY LORD AND SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST IS THE REASON I AM STILL STANDING AND SANE. MY HEAVENLY FATHER KEPT ME SOUND AND MY HEART PURE THOUGH IT ALL; AND MY CHILDREN WHO WAS AND STILL ARE MY STRONGEST SUPPORTERS PRAISE GOD!I THANK GOD FOR MY SPIRITUAL FAMILY FOR SUPPORTING ME IN PRAYER THOUGH MY MANY TRIAL STAGES....ALSO A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO MINISTER LADONNA JOHNSON, FOR WITHOUT HER I WOULD NOT BE PUBLISHED THIS DAY.
