all things are posiible, if you have God..

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” The above speech by Nelson Mandela was orignally written by Marianne Williamson who is the author of other similar material.”

The above speech by Nelson Mandela [ED: See footer note regarding speech origins] indicates a man who over nearly 40 years in prison, thought deeply, read much and tried his best to understand human nature. In the course of that journey he developed a firm belief in God and by doing so, learned love for man followed by sensitivity, compassion and an attempt at understanding all as well as the roles they played in his life.

  2. If There's...

    If there's one face I want to see,
    so beautiful, so true,
    one smile that makes a difference,
    to everything I do.

    If there's one touch I long to feel,
    one voice I long to hear,
    whenever I am happy,
    or just needing someone near.

    If there's one joy, one love,
    from which I never want to part,
    it's you, my very special love,
    my world, my life, my heart.

  4. If I could have just one wish,
    I would wish to wake up everyday
    to the sound of your breath on my neck,
    the warmth of your lips on my cheek,
    the touch of your fingers on my skin,
    and the feel of your heart beating with mine...
    Knowing that I could never find that feeling
    with anyone other than you.

  5. Dance Me To The End Of Love

    Dance with me in love
    Dance with me in life
    When did enduring love begin?
    The day we became man and wife

    There is patience and understanding
    We try to be unselfish and kind
    Though not a fairy-tale romance
    No greater love will we find

    Sharing dreams, passions, and desires
    Building each other up when we fall
    We've learned to say I'm sorry
    And I love you through it all

    Our two hearts beat as one
    Cherishing what we have from above
    Dance with me forever
    Dance me to the end of love

  6. For My Angel Chris

    The day you came into my life will be cherished always.
    An angel sent from heaven above for my lonely heart to hold.
    My heart is no longer lonely, but instead
    filled with the wonder of a love like I’ve never known.

    When you first held me, it was magical!
    A touch no other but my soulmate could provide.
    Truly the passion needed no words.

    Your kiss on my lips is something I long for each day.
    With a single kiss the intensity of your love so incredibly clear!

    Your eyes melt me with emotion so intense it is beyond belief.
    A caring and unconditional love that shines from them
    that makes me shiver with excitement for our life to come.

    Each day your smile fills my heart with a joy like no other.
    Oh but to have you in my life is truly a blessing!

    On the day we wed...
    I promise to you yet again my unconditional love and devotion.
    For I will cherish each day that God gives me with you,
    our own little piece of heaven on earth.

    I will love you always.

  7. Regret flows from the depths of my soul
    With the strength of a flood
    I have held these gates shut for too long
    And though tormenting, they should not be stopped.

    The thought of your anguish
    Even as I write to you now
    Stops my heart cold
    As well it should

    What I see in front of me
    Is a painting of our love
    Its most thoughtful brushstrokes
    Mottled by hurried abstraction and inattention

    A person who had not seen this masterpiece created
    Might think it to be refuse and pass it by unknowingly
    Letting be obscured the deep beauty of its many scenes
    By layers of the tarnish of mistreatment

    But as the painter
    I see beyond the dark smears
    To recall the hours that I attended to the details
    And wonder how I could let it become so discolored

    The painting that took me my life to create
    Has lost its divinity in my careless treatment
    And even if I were to refine it
    I fear you would always see it as it is today

    So today I paint a new masterpiece
    One inspired by the muse of respect
    A work that you can love through our old age
    One that you will look to each day for inspiration

    This one will take some time
    As I want my brushstrokes to be carefully placed
    I need to move steadily to ensure that this time,
    My art represents my dream

    This is my opus
    Don't judge me on my past works
    As I have never before had so much skill and inspiration
    And never before have I wanted to please you as I do today

    With you and my children as my muse
    I will paint for you a lifetime
    A portrait of devotion and friendship
    A panorama of passion and admiration

    All I ask is that you gaze upon it with an open heart
    And you shall unquestionably love me again

  8. Balloon

    I think that I might fly away, in my hot air balloon,
    And hide from worldly worries on the dark side of the moon;
    There’s but one thing I need before I float into the blue:
    I need a sky companion and I want it to be you.

    We’ll fly beyond the storm clouds and we’ll watch from up above,
    I’ll cover you in rainbows as we feel each others’ love;
    You’ll shower in the stars at midnight in our special place,
    I’ll dry you with a comet’s tail and kiss your beaming face.

    Dreamy drifting panorama, changing every day,
    Every night your loving smile will be my milky way,
    The moon will wane before us, sailing there in heaven’s height,
    For nothing else can challenge our love’s everlasting light.

    Venus shining on us, glowing soft at our devotion,
    Our daily drifting dalliance in love’s celestial ocean,
    I’ll write you lovers’ poetry, and you will be my muse,
    Orion and Andromeda will oversee our cruise.

    We’ll sleep with clouds as pillows, maybe steal an angel’s wings,
    Then fly as magic lovebirds, or slide round Saturn’s rings,
    And should we tire of drifting and the stars all floating by,
    We’ll hook onto a meteor and soar across the sky.

    Will you consent to be my mate on our celestial ship?
    I’m ready, heart all packed with love, to last us for the trip,
    Take my hand and step aboard, we’re heading for the sun,
    We’re flying till we find the place where our two souls are one.
