I heard a voice cry out in agony
" I'm so alone and so afraid
Can you help me see a light in this darkness?
Everyone else refused to show me the way."

I gave him my hand and brought him through
And found that he no more despaired
His fear and loneliness had also departed
For all he needed was someone who cared

Every soul is transformed by the heart
That possesses a Love that is genuine and real
A Love so powerful that its effect is everlasting
A Love that gives, A Love that bonds...
A Love That Heals

I've always believed that Constance Elizabeth was placed here on Earth for a special purpose.Throughout my 40+ years I've come to realize that My Purpose in Life is to Glorify God by serving others in every way possible. It's been a rough Journey,though;I've had my share of trials,tests,&tribulations:I was married to a very abusive husband for 22 years;my 1st born was diagnosed w/Autism at the age of 2;I struggled through my second College experience w/a mother who suffered horribly w/Diabetes.(The Lord took her Home in 2004,in my Junior year in Nursing School).I was very stressed during this time-trying to raise 3 children,work nights,&go to school to get my RN, all this while dying on the inside from a Loveless marriage.The stress effected me physically:my hair was falling out,my weight was out of control, & I had to have emergency surgery to remove a Necrotic Appendix when I was only 1 month away from Graduation.That was 6 years ago. My life has turned completely around:I became an RN in 2005,I remarried in 2009 to my true SoulMate,my hair grew back & I am getting rid of the "Stress Fat" once & for all!And I have never been happier!Yet now when I look back at all of those times that I felt pain,anguish, disappointment,& bathed my pillows with silent tears,I use these experiences as opportunities to encourage someone else who is living the same nightmare I once did. I also give God Praise that He gave me the strength to endure,& not allow any negative occurence to make me bitter, but better.I therefore embrace my Poem as MY LIFE MISSION: TO GIVE A LOVE THAT HEALS.

    Friends Are Angels

    Our friends are like angels
    Who brighten our days
    In all kinds of wonderful
    Magical ways

    Their thoughtfulness comes
    As a gift from above
    And we feel we're surrounded
    By warm, caring love

    Like upside-down rainbows
    Their smiles bring the sun
    And they fill ho-hum moments
    With laughter and fun

    Friends are like angels
    Without any wings
    Blessing our lives
    With the most precious things
    Have A Wonderful Weekend...
    Hugs, Teresa

    Just Because...

    Today is not a holiday
    It isn't even your birthday
    But I still thought I'd like to send
    A special message to my friend

    You make me laugh and make me smile
    You ease my troubles for a while
    When clouds are thick and skies are gray
    You put some sunshine in my day

    You're really thoughtful sweet and kind
    A friend like you is hard to find
    I know I've told you once or twice
    That I think you are very nice

    But someone who's as great as you
    Should be told more often than I do
    And so I send these words with love
    Why did I send them?.....just because
    You have brought so much joy into my life....
    I am Blessed to call you friend!
    Love, Teresa
