Worldwide Sentiments

“Very best wishes, keep your beautiful smile,
Hope you live a happy life, stay healthy,
Keep the courage, and hope that you are fine.”

Sentiments were sent with pictures of flowers,
Roses, candy, dinner table décor with food, and
A lighted candle.

Ohh, such lovely pictures sent. This is so
Outstanding, You offered so much in return of
My work/writing…Thank you so much!

You know what I like…You’re a gentleman.

I’m often surprised how others simply know what
I like and also they seem to know me quite well!
This has to be one of my best moments in life, too.

Thank you for your gifts!

Gossip, Opinion, or Knowledge

  
I have been one to be curious about life; ever
Since I have been a child on the swing set.
I often did a lot of thinking back then.

And I still do!

And I have been one that didn’t care to hear
From others’ gossip and opinion.  That is just
Something that comes freely without thought.

I rather think!

And I was the one in science class that enjoyed
Discovering answers to the hypothesis; what happens
If you mix 2 parts hydrogen with 1 part oxygen?

Thinking brings knowledge.

The answer is WATER.

Christ is Born


Abandon
Persecution
Tormented
Crucified

In these words I understand fully how Christ felt.
These same words continue to abuse, threaten,
Terrorize, and/or murder people today in the world.

Christ came to teach all of us and to help save
A person’s soul (salvation.) Christ is born.

I understand people’s cries, especially a woman.

Dear God,

Bless my family and friends,
They are a part of my soul.

I have loved and also lived
To be in their life and moments.

Circumstances happen; things change
But one request of thanks and praise-

Keep them safe, valued, and loved
For they not know the hour of death.

Create the Life You Want Today


Social networker in quotes       Carol Kappes in ( ) summary

(This piece of artwork was sent to me by email; and I was excited as I had read this version of material. He is of Hindu faith, a young man in the thirty range)


You become what you do every day.

For example:
You smoke every day, and you become a smoker.
You drink every day, and you become an alcoholic.
You overeat every day, and you become obese.
You neglect your health every day, and you become sick.
You neglect your relationship every day, and it turns sour.
You spend beyond your limits every day, and you become poor.
You practice being unhappy every day, and you become depressed.


Likewise:
You exercise every day, and you become fit.
You sing every day, and you become a singer.
You run every day, and you become a runner.
You write every day, and you become a writer.
You eat moderately every day, and you maintain healthy weight.
You think business every day, and you become a businessman.
You work diligently every day, and become successful in your career.
You save and make your money grow every day, and you become wealthy.
You read a little every day, and you become knowledgeable on that subject.
You spend quality time in your relationship every day, and develop healthy relationships.
You practice being happy every day, and you become a happy person.
You strive for spiritual growth every day, and you grow spiritually.


Everything that is part of your life became so because you have been meditating upon it consistently.  People who are very good at what they do find a way to consistently do the things they are passionate about without taking long absences from it.  Thus, if there is something that does not serve you that you wish to eliminate from your life, simply find a way to do it infrequently until you completely stop doing it.

Conversely, if there is something you want to develop within yourself, find a way to do it every day, and one day it will become a natural part of you.

The day to take charge and create the life you want is thus today.”

(Then I said to him, “Wow!  Yes, you are right and tell me why you sent this to me?  I see a lot of qualities I carry in this piece of work.  Was this written only for me or many others as well?)

“Written to you only…”

(I do not know the origin of this article; but apparently he had seen it somewhere.)

(“Create the Life you want Today” will be a title for this.  I had given this a title.  And I will place this on my blog.  You have given me a VOICE that needs to be heard; and this will be in an interview style.)

“Thanks, and Gud luck for ur blog.  What u do?”

(I shared with him my website and then I told him my plan to place it on the blog soon.)

“Okay. You seems to be very interesting n knowledgeable person.  Would like to connect with you…”

(He was referring to connect via a chat service; and I didn’t realize it yet)

(We are 1st connections! But then why did you just send me that verse; if you seem that you had not known me before?)

“I follow u little bit on LinkedIn that’s y send u DAT msg…”

(Well, I was totally amazed by these words…and noticed it is written similar to the way that I write; and this knowledge in this piece is worth an interview on my blog.  Thanks a lot.)

“Thnk u.”


(This interview explains to us in great detail; that what is on our minds, is what we create in our life.  It could not have been said any better than this.  I am so honored to have this VOICE being sent to me and being heard to all of my Readers.  Many times I come up with surprises that not only has helped out one person; but also helped out me and many others’ lives.  We are essentially the choices that we make in our lives, and how we create them to happen.  I thank each one of you, as we all have a purpose to live for. Many times it is in our talents that we are born to do and make it a part of our life.)

All Dressed Up for the Date…


And he called at the last minute to cancel
And said he couldn’t get out of the meeting
And said he couldn’t make it that evening.

Yes, things like this we sometimes get!
At least we hadn’t been stood up.
At least he gave the last minute call.

We girls wonder if this is really true?
Or if he got the jitters this first time?
And decided to hold it off awhile.

Often for a date; it’s decided what to wear
So that we’d both feel comfortable.
Complimenting styles helps so much!

Oh well; another one happened today.
And it’s not the first time neither.
Life is so unpredictable and immeasurable!

What’s a girl to do when he made the date?

The Interview

(I knew he was seeing my profile, took an interest to it, and we began an email conversation.  This had been on a “social networking site.” Will not mention what type or which one. He said to me, “I’m curious, what kind of blog do you write?” So then I just sent him my website. I did not mention anything more. He came back to me with these words.)

“Good morning Carol,
I’ve read some of your blog entries.  Quite interesting I must say especially your verse. (Carol’s Corner website) I’ve never quite come across such a writing style before and it’s pretty unique.  Says a lot about you as a person.”

(This had amazed me in what he just said. Another person can again describe my personality by just reading words that are written. This is actually my own creative writing style. I am an emotional/expressive writer.)

“I also enjoy your almost daily photo blog as well. (Google plus posts) Seems like I’ve been with you all along looking at the pictures and reading your words.  I especially LOVE your August 24 entry.  Do you know which one it is?

"Well, it was the one where you said, “A great pair of legs in “off white” or “creamy ivory” hosiery!  Yes, they’re mine.”  I’m a great admirer of women who love wearing hosiery.  I’m definitely the classic kind.  I love lace top stocking pair with lace garter belt and matching panties.  Panty hose?  Well, it obscures the “aesthetic” if you wear it over the panties!  I’m done teasing you!”

“Have a wonderful day.”

(When I had read “Seems like I’ve been with you all along…; yes, this is how I try to captivate my audience.  I do this so that these messages are not forgotten, that they perhaps will help a person in their own life.  Thus, my spirit lives on in them. And another point in the classy dressing is this; we should maintain our best looks in any career we hold.  In the style we live, we also should dress that part.)

My Only Hope…


It is my only hope that my VOICE which
Has been heard from the east to the west
Will resonate to what I believe will come.

This world can’t continue as it has been.
We need the faith of God, our Maker to
Bring reconciliation back to our people.

I have lived long enough, throughout all
Of my heartaches as well, to know that
Mankind recognizes these atrocities.

How much more do you want to disobey
God that brought you into the world?
It’s ridiculous to think any other way.

Man was to take care what God had once
Created; beautiful, magnificent, and awesome.
Our responsibility is ours to tend to his flock.

It is the ones that bear strength, courage and
Bravery; the ones that see this to the very end;
Within repercussions of a war to destroy evil.

To the Middle East Leaders

We all want love, we all want peace
Is this too much to ask?
Uniting together to make this happen
Is the only choice we have left.

By the grace of God; and humanity
We need to stop the evil ways.
Like fire in full air of the wind
It will consume more then we care.

Terrorists cause so much turmoil
It’s unjust and completely wrong.
How can the new generations live
When fear is upon their land?

I ask for your brilliance and mercy
To end the beheadings and killings.
To start in pointing to God’s direction
And bring salvation to all mankind.

Guys Fun Without the Gals…

Drinking with the guys; guys night out
Going to sports games or watching sports
Enjoying the single lifestyle
Having no one directing their life
Doing what they only want to be doing
Taking less responsibility of errands or demands
Single life is less expensive
Being able to have luxury items
Being able to go on your own trip
Isn't on too many budget restraints
Having a mind of their own
Arriving and leaving when they want
Less obligations that must be met

Israel-Palestine Conflict


I began to read about the news
I could only reach ¾ of the article
I began to read about the death toll
I also read about the wounded
I then seen the total of people fled.

I just had to stop reading more
I can’t believe this tragedy
I hear these people’s cries
I understand their moment of pain
I know of the anger they feel.

I see so much loss in their life
I feel empathy to their hurt
I know sorrow fills their minds
I understand tears fall easily
I know the heart is aching.

I know you are struck in terror
I realize you witnessed evil
I wish this battle ceased fire
I know deterrents were in the way
I pray for it to end soon.

The Art of Spiritual Sexuality

(Social Networker in quotes, Carol Kappes in unquotes, edited)

PREVIEW

As we are born into the image and likeness of God; this interview describes the nature of
bringing in the most profound depth to the humans’ desire of intimacy and love for each other.
Also as when the world was created, God created man and then created woman from his rib.

THE INTERVIEW

This networker viewed my blog, and seen photos of me; and he described that it was subtle yet
beautiful cleavage and very sexy legs in a short skirt…that I actually bring in respect for real
men to be attracted to me.

There had been many connections that essentially made the comments of beauty, that I have a
perfect body and legs (men in fashion retail) and that I need to develop it into my style and into
my writing. My intention is to bring wholesome thoughts into the mainstream…and it seems to
be working. And yes, I stay within the American businesswoman dress code.

“I’m glad you recognize the truth of what I am saying and that it is confirmed by others who
know you well. When reading your (A Woman is Like an Egg) aroused a feeling of wanting to
hold you and make love to you. Your connections are absolutely right…you have a gorgeous
body, beautiful natural full breasts and legs that I would challenge any man to deny he would not
want to be between. Your mind and the way you can get into the heart and mind of a man are far
more sexy then the woman who flaunts it.”

Thank you and you have described me so well! Oh my gosh. I’m so surprised how men know
me better than I can ever know a man and that is so true.

I then talked on the divorce, dated not the first year due to personal reasons, but after that and
then talked on how the lawyer didn’t want me to hurry into a relationship due to the effect I
might marry the wrong man or the same type of a man.

“You have a way about you…ironically, when you spoke earlier about women not being
respected (theme for another verse), I sense that you have almost a spiritual power to draw men
to you and in part control them in the sense of removing their power over you and replacing it
with a desire in them for you if that makes sense. Not just the obvious desire to satisfy you
sexually but to care for you, protect you; not necessarily be subservient to you but certainly to
put your needs above their own…does this sound true with you?...have you realized this yourself
yet?”

It is interesting for you to say this!!! Yes, men come back to me in that sort of sense…many
times I meet men and it seems that I want to work on them mentally first; so that they have this
desire and need for me.

“I am sure they do…do you find yourself tempted to satisfy your own desires when you
recognize the power you have with one who quite clearly has been drawn to you perhaps even
spiritually?”

Thus the reason I have not found the one; because I have this strong desire to find the man that
would satisfy me sexually and spiritual inclined like a soul mate would. Very close in intellect
and those types of abilities. Yes, you are RIGHT!
How do you know all this? I find this amazing how you know me; just like this other fellow did
when he described my personality like on my verse titled “When Others Can Describe your
Personality.”

I had known about my power of doing God’s will since high school years, due to all of my life
experiences and also now when I place all the pieces of my life together like a puzzle.

“Perhaps because I recognized a similar spirit and sexuality…more than that really in the sense
that recognition suggests it being a mental process whereas this was much more powerful-and
also whilst not looking but merely chatting suddenly realize that it is as if you have thrown out a
hook that has buried itself into me and enabled you to reel me helplessly in towards you.
I sense that you not only have a desire to be loved, held, cuddled, kissed and cared for but that
you also have a very high sex drive/appetite that you may not have shared with another but you
know only a certain man could satisfy and would want to…add to that the need to connect
spiritually and you have a narrow field to choose from!”

OMG! I can’t believe what you just wrote. Yes, I have had a few dates, I find some with less
sexual knowledge and thus I don’t stay with them long…and they have missed me.

“Perhaps your male mirror image knows only too well how you feel, who you are, and why it is
impossible for anyone else to satisfy you. You know the answer to your questions already
because you know that sexually it would almost anywhere, or anyhow until both are totally
drained…it’s not always younger you need; it’s maturity with experience, ability to last all night
and desire to explore everything about you. Do you feel the excitement?”

Wow, I can’t believe what I am reading from you!! Just waiting for the day to arrive…you are
right; very far and between is the one for you; but God must know where he is? He created man
to have a woman, is this right?

The desires of man and woman are pretty much the same. It is within the continuing love and
passion that keeps the momentum and moment just right, a desire within the heart and mind!

POST INTERVIEW

All of this brings to mind the relationship between the man and woman; and to be there for one
another. We are to know yourself well and to know your life partner; along with understanding
God and all of his blessings bestowed upon them. I know that the art of spiritual sexuality can be
reached within the height of the intense emotional moment of desire. It does exist.

I have spoken with two connections in this subject; and they were very similar.
