I have been reading some of the posts on Ravens blog. Most of which I find very interesting. However I came across one entitled 'A Memoir Of Life After Death.'
As I began to read I thought, this sounds interesting. However the more I read, the more annoyed and uneasy I became, and like Raven I found the whole article very irritating.

I have to explain that I am a committed christian. Which I guess some will also find irritating. But that's their privilege, as it is mine to dislike this article that I am writing about.

The article was way too long for me to explain what it was all about.
But briefly the author is very sick and dies. He has an out of body experience and See's the proverbial white light, and hears a voice, which introduces itself as encompassed in all the major religions.
My faith teaches me that all roads do not lead to God, which is the prevalent teaching around today.

The Bible gives me some idea of what heaven is like and it sounds wonderful.
However hell is an awful place, that was not created for man, but for Satan and his demons. Whereas the authors understanding and description of hell is quite different. In fact his understanding of it, is that it's more to do with people than the enemy of mankind, Satan.
Suffice to say I found this article very disturbing and had to put pen to paper, so to speak.
And having done so , I feel a lot better.
But whether this post is of much help to any who read it, is debatable.

Dark Days

I suspect that the majority of us, are aware that the days we live in are getting darker by the minute.
I am grateful for my strong faith, it is where I find my peace. If a house is built on sand , when the rains come it will collapse and fall. But if the house is built on the rock, then it will withstand all that comes against it.
I do not profess to being a poet, so I hope the real ones out there, will not take offence at this amateur rendition. But it is something I wrote a number of years ago. It spoke to me then and still does.

I Turn To Him Who Loves Me

When the way ahead is hard
and the path I tread is lonely.
When the sky is grey, it's just another long lonely day.
When my mind is confused
and there's nothing I can say.
I turn to Him who loves me.

When I'm sad and old hurts rise up inside me.
I try my hardest not break
as Jesus gently loves me.
I feel His arm round shoulders
so stiff and bent so low.
Surounded by His gentle grace
tears begin to flow.
And I turn to Him who loves me.

No matter what I've done
how awful my past may be.
The blood of Jesus cleanses and sets me free.
Through Him I can forgive
He helps me to forget.
As I turn to Him who loves me.

A Nervous Intoduction

I suppose I should introduce myself first. My name is Yvonne Lee and I live in the Midlands. I am a writer. I have had one book published and am waiting for my latest to come back from the proof reader.
Creating and using a blog is a whole new ball game for me. However I am quite pleased with myself for getting this far without any help. I feel more nervous than when I used to wait in the wings before going on stage to sing.
This blog won't be very interesting at the moment as I have to learn how to use it and figure out how to put photoes and stuff on it. So I hope if anyone looks at this, you will be patient with me, as I am not very computer literate.
