Matthew 5:11-12

For those of us who don’t get it…I am never-endingly subjected to all kinds of abuses, especially sexual. They, the crucifiers tell me that I am nothing but a #$%*@!! Therefore, IN-RE or re-inning. They make my whole life revolve around sex…I am a sporting event. A baseball or football game…no respect for my humanity.

Matthew 5:11-12

11"Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you."

I need to be allowed to be human, which means my relationships are not their business, if I do or if I don’t is not their business, and my life, soul, mind, and most importantly my body and health belong to me, not to them. Not to mention my right to LOVE AND HAVE RELATIONSHIPS as everyone else is allowed to do…

A life, soul, mind, heart…they are all important. LOVE is beyond important, but WITHOUT YOUR BODY AND HEALTH, you cannot have any of these things…I have been kept in endless limbo…for fourteen years now….They tell me over and over again to JUST HANG IN THERE, with cruelty in their hearts. They have left me not put together right on purpose, and they have left an infection in my body on purpose. They have done terrible damage to my health on purpose, and it might very well cause my death. God sees into the hearts of men and women, God is everywhere, and God always knows the truth for God is the TRUTH.

The Power to Create

The power to create was given to me by God. There is energy in this world that we can use for the better or to harm. I choose to use to the fullest extent of my ability, the creative energy that God gave to me to make my world a better place, and to make the world a better place for others as well. Art is good, even when it reflects negative things because it lets us experience the negativity for the better, as in a learning experience and it beautifies our surroundings and the world. I will never let this flame in my soul expire no matter how much I am ever oppressed, hated or denied by others. It was God’s gift to give my soul artistic ability, and it is not their right to take it or any of the other things they continually try to take from me. I will continue into my death to hold art in the highest regard, as a wonderful gift to humanity from God. A quote from Gerhard Richter, ‘Art is the highest form of hope’. I will continue into my death to express my feelings on canvas, positive and negative, for all to see, experience and hopefully understand or relate to. Even if they only relate in the smallest measure I still have achieved something wonderful. A picture of my heart, mind, and soul in swirls of paint on canvas. Today God, I thank you for the gift of creativity and art. It has kept my hope alive during extremely trying and hard times in my life. I am very ill right now, and maybe I will never get better, but as long as I am able to create and be artistic any pain I feel will be lessened, and almost erased by the blessing of art. Wherever you find me, you will find also a painting in progress, for this is what I choose to do with my positive and negative energy, CREATE. This makes all positive. This is a positive thing to do, this is positive energy.
