Continuing 1000 Thanks

I've been keeping a bit of a list since not being able to be updating too regularly... among them are:

Faith has helped me through some really tough times lately, and I am so thankful for all God has done, and Who He is, generally speaking. {28} He's given me a couple or three really intense visions, including one that was not too long ago that really changed my viewpoint on a lot of things. {29-31} He's kept a roof over my head, kept me fed, warm, and brought some loved ones back into my life that I am quite thankful for. {32-37} He's given me hope in 11 different areas of my life, each of which I am very thankful for.... {38-49}

I've met a few new people, begun a volunteer position that is finally morphing to include some of the things I'd like to do, and am learning to crochet from someone in my Growth Group. {50-54} My Growth Group's gone through Revelation, which was fun, and my ladies' ministry group just began the Experiencing God booklet and video series. {55-56} LM, one of my prayer ladies and most endeared friends, has been a God send lately, as have been several other people. {57-62} It's been quite a month and a half... lol

Anyway, hope to be back soon!

Three Men, Kings of Talent

 The following poem is in honor of Axl Rose, who, on February 6th, will be celebrating his 50th birthday. :)

Three men,
Kings of talent.
same angel.
Music cries out from their souls to the world.
Words explode into history
And drastically change it.

Prophetic, poetic gifts...
Three men,
Kings of talent.
The very same angel
Hovered over, watched, guarded and assisted.

Three men
Kings of talent.
same angel.
Same demons.
Same Jesus Who wills them set free.

Three men,
Kings of talent.
Musical geniuses,
Prophetically, poetically gifted.

Terrorized by the same demons
Calling for the same Jesus
Called by this Jesus
To spread fire and light
In musical form -
Fire and light bright like the sun
Through the revelation of their words.

Three men,
Kings of talent,
Elvis, Michael, Axl...
Each with their own voice
Sharing what the Great Voice
Shared in their dreams and visions.

Three men,
One angel,
One talent,
One Jesus,
One gift to share...
Elvis, Michael, Axl.

One left...

How will you make the world a better place?
Nothing is impossible to those who believe.
You can move mountains,
When you step into the river,
Getting out of the boat.

Fly like the eagle,
walk across water,
Sing what he's given you,
Be daring and authentic-
You know where you're holding back,
Afraid of what the world may think,
But rest assured, if it's from Him,
It doesn't matter anyway anyone's opine.

Three men,
One angel,
Kings of talent,
One left.

How will you decide to change the world?
