by Renee Collins
Life is beautiful. There is love, laughter, and an array of surprises. But life is also tough. There is hurt and loss, trouble, and disappointment. How will you react when facing such negative situations?
Renee Collins puts the answer straight in her poem Time Heals All Wounds: My center focusto heal, to define who I am and to never compromise that again. She adds in Me: The opinion of others is no indication that you are in need of self-examination/Be who you are, with God in the mist/Know that the others are on His list.
These very short but inspiring poems are just part of the collection of poetry by Collins in Alabaster Box. Her innermost thought and feelings are vividly described in each verse that moves us to see the positive side in every sorrow and pain. In everyday life, God will always show us the way to true happiness and fulfillment.
