Walking with out fear in God's guiding light
Poem by: Tracy Jo

She lightly walks down the moonlit path.
The star's above allows her spirit to shine.
She wanders along the waters edge and hears the call of God's sweet voice.
Knowing with out doubt that her path is set, she shows no fear in the starlit night.
Not knowing where exactly she goes, yet sure in her heart that God's grace knows...
Stopping, to silently listen and wait. The wind blows lightly against her face.
Looking up she sees God's sweet face.
The moon and stars are all smiling down, knowing that angels are here to guide her now.
She walks with out fear for God's love is near.
Her path is set, her destiny clear.

Story behind the poem and painting.

One night I woke from having a dream. The dream was so vivid, and so very real, I decided to get up and jot down what I was doing in the dream and what I was feeling. The next morning I took that dream and wrote a poem. The dream stuck with me for days. I decided that I should paint that very dream. I tried to express not only the images on canvas, but also show the deep feelings of the dream. I printed out the poem and now include the poem along with the painting. I taped the poem on to the back of the painting.

***Unfortunately I was not as smart when I painted Fallen Angel. That painting was also from a dream and a poem I wrote out. I had written it on the computer, and can not seem to find it. I think I lost the poem when my computer broke way back in Feb. I will continue looking. Now I know I need to print out any poems I might write and add them to the back of the painting!

It is always a good Idea to back up everything that you want to be sure to keep. I usually download everything to a disc.

Wonderful poem and picture Tracy.

Awwww thanks everyone! I shall tell my son he was right! Grins.

Mike i did try the whole search deal. I came up blank. Ty for the idea.

Jo you are so right! I can not believe i did not do a back up. Then again my computer had been giving me so many problems at the time, that i was rather frustrated, and not thinking to much. lol
