The world and what is important from Deni's perspective

Tuesday, November 21, 2006


It's been a very long time since I regularly posted to this blog. I'm having a bit of insomnia tonight and I just reread every word I wrote on here. On my original entry, I mentioned something about cooking, recipe tips. Well, stay tuned for those. I should be able to share something I've been working on with you all before June. As far as the Scriptural writing, I should be able to share some of it before February. More original writing should also be in the works before the end of next year. Other than that, I plan to start posting again at least every month or two. I'm glad I reviewed this, because I'd forgotten how much I'd grown through writing for it. :)

Everyone, have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Thought for the Day in the form of poetry

A good friend recently made me aware of this poem. While it doesn't totally exemplify all of my beliefs, I love the meaning of it. I find it both inspiring and challenging.

by William Ernest Henley

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

Out of the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced or cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
