Before we met Bob wrote a poem called I AM.
A beautiful limited edition print of this poem was created with artwork by Margaret Nixon and Calligraphy by Jane Van Milligan. It comes with the printed words with scripture reference on a separate page.
We are conducting a drawing to give a copy of this print to one of our readers. Please enter the rafflecopter drawing by clicking here. The drawing ends at 12: AM on June 30 and the winner will announced on Monday July 2. But first take a minute to read the words.
The one who was, and is, and is to come, I AM. Alpha, the beginning, the creator, I AM.
I speak, and the earth is formed, and the light is there; the waters are divided from the dry land, and the light from the darkness.
Energy, time, light, darkness, all of these , I AM.
The father of man, of creatures, of life, I AM>.
I speak and grass, and herbs, and trees do grow; and animals, and birds, and insects and serpents do present themselves; even man.
Creation, life imaged, grantor of gifts, I AM.
The word, the spirit, the fact of all things, I AM.
I speak and the angels are; and authority is given; and Satan is given freedom, or bound; also testing allowed.
Strength, hope, happiness, the everlasting, I AM.
I AM Love, but was unloved, alone.
I AM needed my friends, my sons, my servants to love, to me love.
I AM offering perfect peace, trust, tranquility, and love.
I AM not selfish, and allow you another one to love.
I AM perfect, when he is punished so shall you be with your love.
I AM your Lord, your God, Christ;
I AM perfect Agape Love.
The one who was, and is, and is to come, I AM. Omga, the conclusion, the justice, I AM.
I speak and my voice brings down tyrants, dictators, bad masters, demons and Satan, and those not rused in my son’s book of life.
Truth, understanding, logic, honesty, I AM. Fit, undergirding, and absolute fact, I AM.
I speak and the present heaven and earth disappear, and a new heaven and a new earth appear, and there to rule is my son.
Beauty, loveliness, true life conceptions, I AM. Abraham’s , Jacob’s, and Moses’ God I AM.
I speak and the universe reacts as I think, all creation reacts as I think; but you I have freed to react.
Either love, hope, happiness and peace I AM.
Or hatred, confusion, sadness, and fear, he is.

As a part of our Grand Opening for the Expansion of the Espirational Online Family we have refreshments. Okay so this is an online event so you have to make them yourself. But we have recipes.
Please go over to the Kindle Store, grab yourself a free copy of Frozen Fun and enjoy a smoothie or a dish of ice cream or dairy free fruit cream. But don’t wait this free offer ends on June 11.
Oh, if you enjoy the refreshments, please consider leaving an honest review on Kindle. Don’t forget to mention you received a free copy in your review.
All this month we are celebrating the Grand Opening of our Espirational Gallery. I will be talking about my creative process for a few of my works throughout the month. I decided to start with The World’s Gone Crazy, but I’m Okay.
The Story Behind The World’s Gone Crazy, But I’m Okay.
I consider all of my work spiritual even if it may not have an overtly spiritual theme. But The World’s Gone Crazy is definitely and obviously spiritual.
While living in the city, before we moved to the lake I was world weary. Waking up every morning to the news of more violence and death I was becoming overwhelmed and afraid. I was saying “The Prayer for Protection a lot during those days and finally decided to try to put my feelings into art.
What I came up with was the world going crazy (the background is loosely a “crazy quilt”) while I was in the middle of it all surrounded by the White Light of God’s Presence knowing that
“The LIght of God Surrounds me.
The Love of God Enfolds me.
The Power of God Protects me.
The presence of God Watches Over me.
Wherever I am God is.”
— James Dillet Freeman
This piece is available for sale in the Espirational Gallery. Proceeds from the sale of my work help support the Espirational online ministry.
As you may already know, we have expanded the Espirational family online with the opening of All Things Espirational. The new part of the site has been open awhile, but during the month of June we’re having a big celebration to kick this off. You won’t want to miss it!:
Please tell you friends! We need your help in making this event the success we know it can be.
Don’t worry, my blog (where you are now) and Bob’s will continue with regular posts. You may notice the navigation bar has changed. From here you can go directly to Espirational Faith (where Bob hangs out) and Everything Espirational where you will find lots of cool new stuff including an art gallery, bookstore and new monthly newsletter/blog post with Espirational Happenings from our work as well as around the web. Once you get to All Things Espirational please use the pull down menu to explore a bit.
We have big plans and high hopes for this to help expand our outreach. Did I say please tell your friends? 🙂
