Picture It & Write, October 21, 2012

A brand new beginning. The book of Revelations had been more than a book. More than someone’s view, more than someone’s faith. It had happened. Everything that was told would happen did.

The Christians arose from the grave and went to sit beside the almighty God. The floors opened up and everyone that had ever doubted, or had turned their backs on God, having been told about him, and still refused, were thrown in the pit of hell, to fight it out with the devil.

The beast showed his horns and made all kinds of promises to the ones left behind, that he would take care of them. He promised them a better life than they had ever lived. He promised them fame and fortune, if they would only follow him.

These left behind, had a choice still. They could pick God or choose the devil. If you wanted to choose God, you had to work for it very hard. You may starve almost to death, you may lose your home, your families, your job, and almost your life.

The price was high, but the end reward was living side by side with the almighty one. If you made it to heaven, the gates were made of gold and opened up into a kingdom, like no other that you could possibly even begin to dream of. Diamonds, and gems and stars that twinkled ever so brightly. Light that never disappeared behind a cloud, or lay down to rest.

No more pain, no sickness, cancers, jealousies, cheating, hurting, nothing to feel but happiness and peace. You walked in contentment. You wanted for nothing. Food was rich by hearing the word spoken from the lips of God.

The battles had been played and the chosen ones were now seated, and below in hell were the ones that were left behind or chose to not believe. The screams and tortures could be heard as you could see the devil and all of his followers behind steel bars, that would hold them forever and ever.

A new earth, a new dawn, a new life. The world was good, and it would once again begin to build itself all over again.


These thoughts and opinions are my own beliefs. I did not write anything to anger or hurt anyone in this writing exercise. As for myself, I am a believer of the almighty God. I am working as faithfully as I am able to at this point to walk the path to heaven. Although the works here on earth are difficult and sometimes hard, I will walk forth with faith  a little more each day. I believe with all of my heart, that the work I have endured here on this earth, is nothing in comparison to the work that I would have to do to battle between God and Satan.

I am tired and I carry stress. I have many christian friends, and I have three children, and many grandchildren that I love dearly. My prayer for today, is that not one face turns away from God, that not one human passes from this earth not hearing the word of God, found in the Bible. I pray that we lean unto the Lord who has all the answers and perfect timing.

This has been a joy to write for this week’s writing exercise, given to me by Ermilia. It is a chance to let you know what I am made up inside of my heart and soul. No one can judge me on what clothes I wear, or how heavy I am, how much or little money I have, or what car I drive. I will be judged by one and only one on judgement day, and this is all that matters. My day is coming as quickly as in a blink of an eye. Am I ready?  I hope so.

  1. Beautifully written, Terry!

    “I am tired and I carry stress.” Here are a couple of statements about stress I found on the same site as the pumpkin recipes that I thought might help reduce your stress level.

    ” Laughter helps optimize the hormones in the endocrine system, including decreasing the levels of cortisol and epinephrine, which lead to stress reduction (studies have even shown that repetitious laughter causes the body to respond in a way similar to moderate exercise).”

    “Whether it’s a babbling brook, waves breaking onshore, the steady rush of a waterfall, or the drumming of a rain shower, the sound of water helps you regulate your breathing and quiet your mind…and can even help lull you to sleep! And research has shown that listening to music like jazz and bluegrass for 30 minutes, particularly during stress, increases immunoglobulin A (IgA) production, an immune-boosting protein that will help keep you from getting sick.”

    Do you have any of the music tapes with sounds of nature in the background?

    I hope you have another good night’s sleep tonight. God bless.


    • I used to have big time panic attacks and the doctors put me on meds. I learned about the thunderstorm music and slowly got myself off of the meds while listening to the CD while going to sleep. Wish I still had that CD, but I wore it out. Laughter is something that is not in this house at all. I have just started listening to the stations on the Sirrus radio on TV. The escape which is real nice and soothing


  2. A very passionate piece. Although I am not religious, I appreciate your strong belief in something that helps you. Thanks for sharing such a personal piece, Terry, for Picture it & write this week.

  3. How very beautiful, Terry! In these modern times, it is often difficult to openly state one’s beliefs, but I believe everybody is entitled to their personal beliefs, and nobody should judge them. I admire your openness, and your conviction that you are doing what you have to do. You have a difficult path to walk at the moment, but you do it with love. I believe that you are an angel – without wings, maybe, but that’s just for now! 🙂


    • oh Zelmare, this is a wonderful comment you have given to me. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I don’t know if I am an angel, but I am trying my best to do what is right for my brother, and to help him feel loved.
      I would never lash out at anyone for what they carry their faith in. It is not for me to judge, I just hope that we all believe in something. Thank you so much for your kindness

    You are so right! Lord bless you and those who read your posting.


  5. Awesome, Terry!! I realize that I use that word alot in my comments on your writings, but it is the one that fits the most!! You are one ve God bless and keep you in His care always.ry inspiring lady. You are truly my hero(ine)!


  6. For some reason, with October in the title, and Christians coming out of graves, I wasn’t sure where this was going… I did a couple of Bible studies on Revelation and this feels funny to me scripturally. Of course, I’m no expert and I believe in liberty in literature. I do like the the image being a a new beginning, and your declaration of faith is incontrovertible.


    • I love your comment Anne. There are so many religions and so many beliefs. First of all, I was writing for a writing exercise by a photo given to me. I do believe that when God comes back, all Christians will be raised from the grave, and there will be turmoil for years if you are not a christian. Non believers will pay a terrible price to then find their way to heave, after all, they had their chance when they were alive. I did not go into great details, since it was a prompt, and maybe I should have. I did not quote from verses, I quoted from my own beliefs. Most of everything I said is from Revelations, and the seven years of tribulations. From the bible it states that a person will possibly want to sell his soul to the devil just for a piece of bread, so I take that as terrible. For me personally, I want to be ready now. These are my own opinions from the way I was raised about God. Thanks for giving me your honest thoughts Anne!!!!!
