About The Author
There once was woman who was diagnosed with cancer. She stood at the mirror and looked at herself with despair. Her beauty was gone and she no longer knew who she was inside. She tried to look into her eyes to find some answers. All she found was tears of sorrow that kept streaming down her face. She felt no love from anyone and she didn’t even like herself. She wanted to die but she was afraid of death. She withered away a little everyday as she lost her hair and lost so much weight from not eating. She never told anyone how she felt because she didn’t think that anyone cared. She wasn’t sure if there was anything out in the world that was listening to her cries at night. She didn’t really know how to pray but thought she would try it. Every time she felt the pain of living inside and every time she felt sick from all the medications for her illness, she would pray to a God that she didn’t understand. Then one day when she was sick and didn’t care if she died, she prayed for peace and said to herself that she cannot live this way any longer. She had heard about a God that was suppose to help when asked. So she cried with all of her desperation for something to give her the strength to get through her days. Then one day as she helped someone get a picture in a store, she saw the words that she had been praying for so long. She heard a voice that told her to write everything down that she thought from that day forward. As she wrote the words that came, they were like none ever before. Now she never spoke before about how bad she was feeling and as she wrote the words that came to her, they were how to find Something Greater. She was scared and all alone but knew the words were special. She wanted to write all the time to make sure she didn’t miss anything she thought about. She started out writing about thoughts and emotions. As she wrote, she realized that when she was at her desperation, she recognized the painting’s words as a message for herself. She wasn’t sure what it meant, but she had nothing else to try. Her mind was in such turmoil that she began to write. The words became messages from Something Greater. Some of it she did not understand, but knew that they were important. As she worked with such determination to write the thoughts that now were messages, her life began to change. All the despair and all of the pain began to leave her. When she looked in the mirror she saw the light behind her eyes that seemed to speak back to her. She wanted to share this new found strength to anyone who would listen. As she spoke and told her story, she began to heal. The scars were now battle wounds that were left upon her body and she knew that the war for her life lied within herself. All her life she had let someone else tell her what to do. All her life she lived in fear and never thought of herself. As she wrote, she started out wanting to spread this message that Something Greater was at work and she knew how to find it. As she told her story to others, people began to want to know how she went from being so sad to so happy. Then one day, as she looked in the mirror, she realized that she was different. She was not sick anymore and she was full of love. She wanted to share this knowledge with anyone who would listen. She found Something Greater and she wants to tell others that they can too.
