Musings of a Soul
About the Book
Within each human, regardless of ethnicity and life experiences lies our spirit. Within it, lie our beliefs, dreams, and the capacity to soar. This gift of spirit, a bequest of our Creator, contains our dreams, beliefs, encounters with our God, the power to achieve lasting relationships, and weave memories. With all of its powers, it remains our own. Within these pages, may you find your own “musings,” find peace within the stanzas, recall a joyful experience, or grow in your spiritual life, awakening a contact with your Creator.
About the Author
I began nearly age 7, getting frequent ideas for poems or stories. In my Spirit, I knew, even then that I was a writer. I would often get up at night, while everyone else slept and sneak into my closet which had a pull down string light, trying not to awaken my sleeping sister, who shared my room, began to write down many creations in my little head. I knew then that I had the skill to become a writer. Later in High School, I won an essay contest, sponsored by the American Legion, on "Why I love America". My dreams of becoming a published writer. Burned within me. "Writer's Starve!". was the mantra I heard from parents, professors, and society, in general. I finished my education, and became proficient as a business owner consultant. Writing had never left my passion. Through may years of working, marriage and health challenges, my passion to write professionally only grew. I made several admissions, without success. My deep commited love of the lord, and his love for all of us, through all our trials, joys and sorrows became a "fire" which is unquenchable. I have in these pages released this lifelong passion to share readers. I hope to touch their spirits, inspire and enkindle their hearts and minds, elevating them to soar above the mundane.
