♥ To watch over your heart is like watching over a garden. Make sure you're planting good seeds and pulling out any weeds that may appear.

Background Information

Well there is a lot I could say, but I'd hate to bore you with my life's story.  I discovered that I loved writing early in life, about the age of 7. Having suffered abuse and neglect as a child, writing was my way of escape. I began with songs, then poems, later some articles and now quotes. I'm an amatuer compared to some writers, but the passion is there. God gave me the gift of writing to help me on my journey and others along the way.

My recent quotes:

When a poor man has a good wife he considers himself rich.

A woman who thinks she's ugly is a woman who believes her own lies.

The only muscle that truly attracts a woman is the heart.

Self-love is good as long as it doesn't interfere with you loving others. .

Selfishness is the beginning of loneliness.

Jealousy is a monster and envy is her sister.

I'm beautiful, not because you think so, but I do.

Though clothed, you're naked without love.

Acceptance is good when it comes from those who bring out the best in you.

Though living, I was dead without love.

 I didn't understand love until I understood God.

To truly love someone is to lose everything, even your pride.

Don't make an idol of the person you love. Only God is be worshipped.

Won a poetry contest in 2008 and author of the poem, The Heart of America, which to my surprise is very popular in remembrance to 9/11 and the 4th of July.

The Heart of America

America, land of the free
Home of the brave
Set off the fire works
Let your banners wave

From sea to shining sea
All across the land
Let people of all races
Come to together hand in hand

United we stand,
Divided we fall
Let's put aside our differences
Once and for all

Thanking God for our freedom
Letís make a joyful sound
In the heart of America
Let love always be found
