The Teresa I am

I am a woman who loves with passion. For without passion there is nothing. I love the simple things in life like the sun kissing my skin with it's warmth,the smell of fresh air as it stirs in my hair,the richness of the cool freshly tilted earth beneath my bare feet or the smell after a rain when the earthiness rises in the air hitting my nostrils stirrup the passion within me to the very depths of my soul calling me to plant some seeds or plants to watch God's magnificence in what I've planted reaching it's maturity,producing its fruits, flowers or both.

I love the look of amazement and wonderment of a child as it chases a butterfly trying to touch it’s beautiful wings or the sound of spring when nature comes alive with the birds singing their praise unto God or the night bugs creating their chorus as the sun begins to low continuing their sounds until daybreak.

I desire to be at peace with myself and those around me, for love is the most perfect gift to be given or received.

Animals and children naturally process the true love of God until life and adults teach them both to hate.

I enjoy living my life to the fullest wherever and whatever that may be,whether eating an icecream cone before it melts and running down my elbow, to a wet slimy fish swinging from my pole, spitting watermelon seeds to see how far I can get them or lifting my hands in praise to the Most High God, The Great I Am being lost in His presence… That’s where I love to be most often,in God’s presence. I love creating things.

I’m a crafter one who isn’t happy until I’ve created something or many things. I cook with the same love and passion cooking to me is creating and showing love.

I’ve enjoyed writing since my teenage years. Poetry was my first love in writing, I then saw I could tell those around me how much I loved them in written words that touched them to their soul. I put my writing on hold for many years because there didn’t seem to be enough time or energy between being married,raising children,the home and those everything entailed. Now with the empty nest I find more time to do all the things I love.
