A TRAIL OF TEARS

© Vickey Stamps 3/4/14

Her parents had wanted her to be a boy child. Obviously that hadn’t happened, so the Matthew they’d thought for a Matthew, Sr. had become Mattie instead, and they’d grown to love this only child, with all their hearts.

She stood now, in front of the closet she had shared with her husband all these long years. Two ‘Sunday go to meeting’ shirts hung there that they had indulged in for Mark, at the local mercantile. The rest of the shirts…

Life's Greater Purpose

There is a Greater Purpose to Life. If One is here to learn from past mistakes, it is to teach others of how One's poor decisions has hurt others; then One's here to teach other how to avoid such poor decisions. Thereby making those poor decisions spiritually beneficial to others.

To understand life's Greater Purpose, One must remember that thee body is but an earthly shell, it sometimes lives in fear, sadness, or is troubled believing it is somehow separate from the Creator because…

When I only owned myself..

Sometimes when the house is silent..my wife and cats asleep

I sit at the computer playing old songs and thinking,

about days and times of long ago..when all I had was me

and when all of me was mine.

I was fine with that.

Being able to change direction at will, sometimes in the middle of a highway

deciding to go North to Montana while on the way to Arizona

from Florida seemed normal..then.

After all I only had myself and all of me was…

Are we a point?

What would it be like to be a point, with no dimension in space, time, energy or matter? Dimensions would exist but would be agencies we use, not what we are.

If you ever have the chance Take It

Well having a Old Fashioned Christmas was the greatest thing to happen in quite awhile...

No phones were used, no computers were available and our only form of communication was to Talk, Hug and Hold... Games were played with the children, walks and snowball fights were lots of fun and everyone survived not having a electronic device in their hand...

Three days and I will miss them all hearing their voices instead of receiving email updates.

But we all agreed (even the young…

The Weather

The Weather

We live in an ocean of literary devices such as simile, metaphor and allegory to name a few. We accept them because we hunger for reasons, something that satisfies.

We do this in times of personal loss, physical disability, old age, something seems wrong with us and God only knows what.…

The Perfect Woman

A woman who loves herself (and so life itself)

Grateful for ALL that she experiences (and so how life unfolds)

Able to laugh, cry, think and feel easily (and so commune with life fully)

Respects herself as she is (and so the wisdom of events as they be)…

Alignment.  This is a short list of my angels and heroes who not only accepted who I was but who encouraged me to do so.  Their visit may have been a just a moment or a lifetime.  After they did their job, not always seen as positive, they moved on.  Thank you…

Native P.T.S.syndrome

After strong encouragement from The Native Nations leaders, Spiritual help was allowed at Veterans Hospitals, Salt Lake City VA Hospital for one. The V.A. provided space and materials to build a Sweat Lodge for Native American Vets to heal Spiritually the way they have for many generations. Eventually the Lodge had to be enlarged due to strong interest from the Native Vets as well as any other vets who were interested. I was invited to join a friend who did 3 tours in Nam. This was the…

It's becoming alive so we can see, feel and respond to life, knowing that responsibility is the ability to respond (not the same as accepting or placing blame)

My Theory on Life

My Theory on Life. We're in it for the experience. So each has merit --- the good and the bad -- the first class and the cheap. We experience (remember) things we've forgotten, like going on a forgotten journey. We like to do this. We don't have to evolve 'cause we're perfect already (because…
