You Are The #Blessing – #Poetry of #Inspiration


You are the Blessing

Blessings of Peace and Joy
Of Life and Truth
Of Love and Hope
Of the Sweetest Gifts
Which E’er can be Bestowed
Rest Upon Your Shoulders,
Touch You with their Smiling Presence,
Guide You in Dark Moments
And Steer You towards the Path Chosen Only for You.

Know with Certainty
You Do Not Walk Alone,
You Do Not Breathe in Solitude,
You Are Not Singled out, Isolated and Lost,
You Are Blessed, Sweetest Soul of the Beloved,
You are the Greatest Joy Love Knows,
You Stand in the Shadow of Protective Wings,
You Walk with the Hand of Love Ever Near.

Receive These Blessing
With a Thankful and Certain Hope,
Brave in the Face of Doubt and Fear,
Strong in Love’s Greater Strength,
And BE the Best YOU You CAN Be,
For YOU are the Blessing that Walks and Talks,
Touches Lives and Shares the Bright Light
Of This Love

A Creative Way Around The Technology Of Your Blog

a cooking pot and twisted tales

The more outlets creative individuals have, the better. We all have our niche, of course, be it writing, painting, or making music. But, we don’t need to stick to our specialty. In fact, it’s better to branch out. One creative outlet feeds another, and the more you use, the more complete your creative satisfaction will be.

Picture Credit

Some alternatives can even help your primary pursuit. Blogging, for example, provides you with a new way to share what you love doing. If you write fiction, you could post pieces or speak about your writing process. If you love painting, you could develop a blog reviewing your favourite methods.

But, many creative individuals avoid the blogging world. Why? Because the idea of all that technology gives a lot of us a headache. Far from being an inspiration, it seems like a sure way to kill creativity. In truth, though, you may…

WordPress, Free or Self-hosted?

Story Empire

Hi, Story Empire fans. Craig here to kick off this point/counter-point post. This is something new for us, and we hope to have more posts like this. Some of that depends upon the success of this post. We invite all of you to join our discussion in the comments area. Maybe you can add something to this discussion.

I think WordPress is the best blogging system out there. They are bigger, simpler, and have more interaction going than competing systems. There is one question that bloggers have to answer when they get started: Free or Self-Hosted?

I’m on the side of free. My own blog, Entertaining Stories, is a free WordPress blog. WordPress provides me with multiple theme options, and those are highly customizable. They also provide widgets that allow me to add things like a slideshow of my covers, linked covers that go to the Amazon store, and…

Grilled Romaine Caesar Salad with Steak

What's for Dinner Moms?

I loved this meal because it was one of our cook once, eat twice meals. Since we were already grilling it is super simple to add an extra steak (or two) to the grill for a second meal. That is generally how I get two meals out of one. Cooking extra meat is generally easy and to make it into a second dish a night or two later that is completely different from the meal before doesn’t make your family tired of eating “leftovers.”


This was a super simple meal on a busy night. When I first mentioned what I wanted to make for dinner I got the frown from my entire family. They thought we were grilling each individual lettuce leaf. No! You grill the Romaine hearts whole. It takes 2-3 minutes and is so easy and add a new flavor to the salad.

The best part of…
