Life on Pause: Where there’s a will…


They all say – “Where there’s a will – there’s a way.”  I also say, “If one has faith, anything is possible.”

It is amazing how faith can turn things around…And when you think you see chaos,selfishness and evil in the world- generosity is still alive in this world.

I like to believe I have spent most of my life being kind and trying to do the best I can. Throughout childhood, I befriended many kids who were on the “other side” of popularity- Just like myself…. I was kind to all of my teachers and tried to make their job easier.

I know there were a few times, I may not have been the easiest teenager – but I don’t feel that I was too bad of a kid…

I’ve tried to be nice to everyone who enters my corner my entire life…I have been a counselor, a friend, a teacher, mother and wife (although that one failed-not by my own accord).

So somebody told me-“If someone is offering you help – take it. You deserve it. You’ve spent your life being nice to others. Let someone be nice to you…”

And I feel – that when things happen in our lives -sometimes they are meant to happen. While we do have control of our destiny-There are “God” things that happen. And I believe,this time, it was a God thing….

Someone is watching over me….

I think, with a little added strength mixed with my own type of class, I will be able to do round 2.

and I was given  a message in a simple way last night….I was counting some cash, and on a dollar bill – two messages were hand written – “Jesus loves you” & “God loves you.”  When I question that-it seems that I always get an answer…

…..Where there’s a will, there’s a way. Especially with faith.

“Within the depths of our mind, we are battling the duel of light and darkness…good and evil…love and hate…” Between Light and Darkness is Ariana’s most recent collection of poetry… Cherry’s frequent message she delivers throughout her work is, “The journey through the darkness, back into the light.” Her hope is to let others know that they won’t be in that place of darkness for long – that they indeed can reach the light once again…She also wants her readers to know – that – it is okay if they find themselves in that bleak blackness…Sometimes we feel guilty for going to that dark place – but it is necessary to conquer the demons that battle our souls…. Other books that Cherry has written include "Only If" and "Twisted Paths Poetry." Her epic tale, “Only If,” won the “Reader’s Favorite Award” and a 5 star review…and her collection, “Twisted Paths Poetry,” received a 5 star review from Realistic Poetry International. She has been writing ever since she was a child. Some of her inspirations include Edgar Allen Poe, Robert Frost, Stephen King, Emily Dickinson, Christopher Pike and Shel Silverstein. Ariana writes a variety of genres: inspirational, humorous and horror – although writing horror is one of her favorites…. She was 12 years old when she read Poe for the very first time – which inspired her epic poetry tale, “Only If.“ During other parts of her free time, she enjoys taking photos and creating art. Her “day-jobs” include working as a church administrative aide and reporting for a local newspaper.
