People come and people go

Posted by Mary Ramsis on July 31, 2014 / 455 views

People come and people go Some like leaves that winds blow Others know their way and flow Some have days to spend on earth Others have plans they follow since birth Some are guided by the earthly seduction Others work hard on the evil’s destruction Those living with no plan will perish Others follow a promise and flourish With no plan yourself is your master and your lord You’re driven by your...

Believing in Life

Posted by Mary Ramsis on July 30, 2014 / 1,509 views

Believing in life… He was driving on a highway. Thinking of nothing, just driving. Then he started daydreaming, started to watch his life as if watching a movie in front of him. He saw himself as a child playing with his two brothers. He was always smiling, happy and excited to see more and to experience more. He saw himself turning into an adolescent, searching for independence and freedom, searching for love...

Your Light

Posted by Joseph J. Mazzella on July 29, 2014 / 1,793 views

The heat of the July afternoon had finally passed as I took my dogs out for their last walk of the day. The cooler air of the Summer evening felt so refreshing on my face. I breathed it in deep and gazed up at the magnificent full moon sitting alone, smiling down on me from the still blue sky. It was a moment of pure peace that was only made more perfect when I saw my old friends the fireflies in my backyard, doing...

The Road to Finding Myself

Posted by Desyrette on July 27, 2014 / 2,075 views

A lot of times, i have thought of several ways to express my self, understand myself, feel accomplish with my inner self, love myself, have self confidence, use myself to touch lives in a positive way , I thought i could do this on my own but i came to realize that there is no other door to be knocked on but Gods. I was raised by a single parent ( my mom) to whom i owe much love and respect to. She tried her best in...

Car Empty on Gas, Driver Full on Faith

Posted by Mary Nella McLaughlin on July 25, 2014 / 4,499 views

I noticed a man walking away from a car parked along the side of the freeway. He seemed a bit distraught. It took me awhile but I managed to make my way back to the exit where it happened. I couldn’t find him on the road into town and gave up the search. Just as I was getting back on the freeway, he walked right by me. I rolled down my window and yelled over to him. “Excuse me, did you just have car problem...

For the Love of Folly

Posted by SirWilho aka Bill Stolberg on July 25, 2014 / 1,002 views

"Deeeelish, MMMM, Delisssssshhhhh," says Mel in his appraisal of the chocolate bar I brought to him the day before. A normal day would have prompted me to smile or even chuckle to myself since its kinda cute or quaint when he says that, (that being said if a man should use such words for description). Today was different. I was mad, irate and irritable and had just told Mel the story about how I left...

Grand Adventure

Posted by Joseph J. Mazzella on July 24, 2014 / 2,074 views

You can see a lot of life in a small town grocery store. All you have to do is stand back, open your eyes, and watch it go by in all of its wonderful diversity. Just the other day I saw a young couple holding hands while they walked down the aisles. I saw two little girls begging their Mom for the more sugary cereal instead of the plain one to no avail. And I saw a serene, smiling, old man with more cans of dog food...

Death took him

Posted by Sunshine on July 22, 2014 / 6,024 views

Few years back, I had thought I found everything I wanted in life; I had a healthy family, a good job and the perfect guy, we had been dating for 2 years already, I was head over heels in love with him and nothing else mattered… One Sunday, we were back from a long road trip in the mountains, I was sleeping in the car, he was driving, singing out loud as usual trying to wake me up, when suddenly I heard a huge...

The Power of the Spirit

Posted by Anea Johnson on July 19, 2014 / 4,236 views

It was a cloudy Friday afternoon in Roswell, a suburb north of Atlanta. I had just picked up my three children ages 5, 7, and 11 from their summer camp program and we were headed over to my mothers house for our usually "Friday night take out dinners." I always take Riverside Dr to get to my mothers house because the traffic on Holcomb Bridge Rd. is a beast after 5PM. But I actually like taking Riverside Dr. because...

Miracles From Generous Strangers

Posted by Yvonne Conte on July 19, 2014 / 2,518 views

(I have lots more pictures and a video if you want) The Shore Vineyard in Toms River New Jersey was flooded during Storm Sandy and I went with my church on a mission to help the church and the families in Tom's River. While there working, I met Mr. & Mrs. Edwards who had lost their home and two vehicles in the storm. They had two small children and one on the way. They were one family and there were thousands...

Honesty!

Posted by Rosemerry on July 18, 2014 / 2,856 views

This is a cute, and not so cute story about a life that retired. I am the mother of two grown sons I raised alone. I had a little child support help, under constant protest, alcoholic father in the picture that abused through words and striking, angry at mother, expressed anger to young boys who loved both of their parents. These boys grew up, saying they loved their mother, but when she retired, they turned into...

Try Again Tomorrow

Posted by Joseph J. Mazzella on July 17, 2014 / 4,059 views

I have been driving for over 30 years now but I can still remember my first time behind the wheel like it was yesterday. My Mom had driven our big, blue Plymouth to a narrow, deserted back road and parked it. The road was only one lane and had a wall built with old, river rocks along the side of it, but Mom knew there was little chance of meeting any traffic on it that day. With a smile she gave me the keys and...

The God Behind the Sunrise

Posted by Mary Nella McLaughlin on July 16, 2014 / 4,257 views

If someone points to the sunrise, point to the God behind the sunrise. I had a conversation with someone I had just met in the corner of a kitchen at a family gathering. Tom shared a little of his life. I asked some questions based on his story and he opened up more about his struggles. He finally blurted out, “To tell you the truth, the only time I feel good is when I go out to the bluff behind my house. I get...

Do You Remember When...

Posted by Kathy Redford on July 15, 2014 / 2,934 views

Do remember when... Your mother was a young woman, wearing long dresses below her knees, dangling earrings, heels, and holding your hand; when your father wore white t-shirts, blue jeans, and drove a chevy truck, and held you up in his arms against his chest, white t-shirt, and you loved them and felt safe with them. Do you remember the tears that seemed to last a lifetime when he left, the ache in your heart...

We Just Keep Ridin'

Posted by Jared Hicks on July 15, 2014 / 1,441 views

Jeremiah Brinkley, the man I met a few days ago in parking lot who has traveled all over 30,000 miles on one horse to fulfill his dream of swimming in the ocean and living life as being a "simple man" As I sit here tonight I'm trying to find all the right words. I don't claim to be a writer or anywhere near close to that. I'm just a girl with a camera that happened to meet an amazing man a few days ago, and at...

LET GO.

Posted by Ruu on July 14, 2014 / 3,740 views

So I fought for it! And soon got through it. Just then I realized I'm right in front of my goal. All I ever wanted. And finally I get out there and explore a new world. But what next? Wanting to have a lifetime experience meeting new people, seeing new culture and having the time of my life. Much as some of us fight for it, my dream turned into reality. Thousand thought running in my mind. But then what...

She Couldn't Wait To Show Me

Posted by Dawn on July 14, 2014 / 1,571 views

I work at a library and one of my patrons just won a gold medal at the Special Olympics for softball. She is very sweet and probably about 40 but acts like she's only 12. She's the one with her arms up in the picture. She could not wait to show me her medal...
