If one wants to be in the light one has to go through the dark first.
If you want to be in the light (heaven) then you have to go through the darkness first (sin). As we are all born in sin and the devil has many tricks on this earth. We want to be in the light (God, Heaven) but the Darkness (Devil, evil) is always there trying to pull us in. However, through that darkness could be a bigger moral of understanding worth its weight in gold. Something that other's would cherish to know and up to the one who experienced it to pass that moral on. To beat the devil doesn't it make sense to understand his strategies (all of them). Such as a cop who goes undercover as a "lawbreaker" in order to get the bad person. One can go undercover into the dark in order to understand the dark ways to help those in the dark come out.
To define how we are using the word Dark/Darkness/Dark side doesn't have to mean only sin. It can mean the bad things that are happening in your life or that you have done in you life (sin).
To define how we are using the word Light means not only heaven but the also good things that happen in your life and the good things that you've done.
The phrase you have to make it to Heaven by going through Hell doesn't mean that when you die you go to Hell first to get to Heaven. It means that in order to h've good happen to you or to be good sometimes you have to go through bad things to get there.
Everybody in this world has been in the darkness (sinned, bad things happened, evil getting to them, etc.) and through the dark only to arrive in the light. Such as a black tunnel with a glimmer of light at the end.
When your in the dark and trying to get to the light sometimes you have to stay in the dark and listen to what it has to say before you get to the light. Meaning if your thriving to do good and walk with the Lord but the Devil is trying to pull you in perhaps you should take the time out to listen to him. Before you know it you will be walking with God. No matter how hard the Devil is pulling God is pulling just as hard (perhaps harder). This doesn't mean that you should, while in the dark, become a Satanist or anything along those lines. It only means that morals and good lessons can come in disguise. Such as if somebody loses their job a better one could be on its way and in order to appreciate the good things in life you have to understand and experience the bad things as well. Without suffering there would be no compassion.
This all is not that much different then being in the darkness to appreciate the light.
If one wants to be in the light one has to go through the dark first, you have to make it to Heaven by going through Hell, to live is to suffer but to survive is to find meaning within the suffering. All these phrases basically mean that bad things usually happen before good things. Ultimately you cannot appreciate the good without suffering and understanding the bad. Everybody appreciates the good but there would be no good without the bad.
Such as that dark tunnel that seems never ending. When you are in there it may seem like you want to give up and cannot understand how you got into the dark. But you can't give up because with every step you take it makes you that much closer to the light. Always remember that a journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step.

Psalms 55:22 ~ Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall.
Friends are one of God's way of taking care of us.
This was written by a Metro Denver Hospice Physician:
I was driving home from a meeting this evening about 5, stuck in traffic on Colorado Blvd., and the car started to choke and splutter and die - I barely managed to coast into a gas station, glad only that I would not be blocking traffic and would have a somewhat warm spot to wait for the tow truck. It wouldn't even turn over... Before I could make the call, I saw a woman walking out of the quickie mart building, and it looked like she slipped on some ice and fell into a gas pump, so I got out to see if she was okay.
When I got there, it looked more like she had been overcome by sobs than that she had fallen; she was a young woman who looked really haggard with dark circles under her eyes. She dropped something as I helped her up, and I picked it up to give it to her.. It was a nickel.
At that moment, everything came into focus for me: the crying woman, the ancient Suburban crammed full of stuff with 3 kids in the back (1 in a car seat), and the gas pump reading $4.95..
I asked her if she was okay and if she needed help, and she just kept saying 'I don't want my kids to see me crying! ,'so we stood on the other side of the pump from her car.. She said she was driving to California and that things were very hard for her right now. So I asked, 'And you were praying?' That made her back aw ay from me a little, but I assured her I was not a crazy person and said, 'He heard you, and He sent me.'
I took out my card and swiped it through the card reader on the pump so she could fill up her car completely, and while it was fueling, walked to the next door McDonald's and bought 2 big bags of food, some gift certificates for more, and a big cup of coffee. She gave the food to the kids in the car, who attacked it like wolves, and we stood by the pump eating fries and talking a little.
She told me her name, and that she lived in Kansas City Her boyfriend left 2 months ago and she had not been able to make ends meet. She knew she wouldn't have money to pay rent Jan. 1, and finally, in desperation, had called her parents, with whom she had not spoken in about 5 years. They lived in California and said she could come live with them and try to get on her feet there.
So she packed up everything she owned in the car. She told the kids they were going to California for Christmas, but not that they were going to live there.
I gave her my gloves, a little hug and said a quick prayer with her for safety on the road. As I was walking over to my car, she said, 'So, are you like an angel or something?'
This definitely made me cry. I said, 'Sweetie, at this time of year angels are really busy, so sometimes God uses regular people.'
It was so incredible to be a part of someone else's miracle. And of course, you guessed it, when I got in my car it started right away and got me home with no problem. I'll put it in the shop tomorrow to check, but I suspect the mechanic won't find anything wrong.
Sometimes the angels fly close enough to you that you can hear the flutter of their wings...
Psalms 55:22 ' Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall.
Please show this to anybody you think may need some help. Here is a prayer to help you pray for them.
'Father, I ask You to bless all of my loved ones, co-workers, neighbors, strangers and anybody reading this right now. Show them a new revelation of your love and power. Holy Spirit, I ask You to minister to their spirit this very moment.. Where there is pain, give them Your peace and mercy. Where there is self doubt, release a renewed confidence through Your grace, In Jesus' precious name. Amen.'
When The Devil is knocking at the door, simply say... Jesus could you get that for me?
I hope everyone enjoyed this. I recieved the story in an email and I thought that it was worth posting here. I hope it touched your heart like it did mine.

Hello all, I really wanted to express to everyone the importance of The Lord in our lives. He is everywhere and you can seek him at anytime within your own heart. If only you open it to him. One quote that I think everyone should here is this....
"I would rather believe in God and die finding out that it all wasn't real. Rather then not believe in God and die finding out that it all was real!"
I stress the fact that God is seeking everyone who ignore or do not hear his call. He wants to be in your life and change it. Some people just let the devil confuse them into thinking that other wrong things are true and real. Of coarse you may know I am a Christian. Of coarse you may also know that not everyone who calls themselves Christians act like it. But don't let that discourage into thinking all is like that.
Can you imagine what your paradise is? What would it look like? More importantly what would you feel when you go there? Ok now double that feeling by a thousand. That's what heaven is like.
I've heard a lot of people say that hell is on earth. Lets be real, nobody knows 100%. But I think its more like earth is the middle and there is much worse things in hell then here.
Whoever reads this please don't be angry if you disagree. I am merely a messenger. When it comes down to it is your own choice.
I've came across a part in the bible that reads...
"The Lord is my light and my salvation;
whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength
of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?"
This is saying that if you choose God you shall not be afraid anymore because good always defeats evil in the end. Its like if your in a battle with one of your own personal demons and you feel like you have nothing else to lean on and nobody cares. You are about to fall without the strength to stand. If you come to The Lord and ask for forgiveness of all your sins and if you mean it sincerely.... Then you will have an army of Angels following you with The Lord as the King.
Thank you all for taking the time out for reading this. Please feel free to add any comments you may have. Remember though, be respectful.

A fairytale without a happy ending is like a world without mystery. What is so special about a fairytale anyway? Is it because everything seems so perfect? Or no matter how bad things get you know that in the end it will all be ok... What happened to all the beliefs? Children aren't as adventurous as they once were. Also why do adults loose the ability to believe in the unknown? Maybe its all the bad in life gets to us after a while and a harsh and possibly unreal reality settles in. However what if everyone did believe? How many things would change? What would be different? These are probably the many questions of life that could possibly never be answered.

When I heard I almost couldn't believe it. It was like an Uncle dieing. I remember when I was in elementary kids would ask me who my favorite singer was. I would always say Michael Jackson! Sometimes I would even get laughed at but it didn't change my mind. When somebody is on TV and in the public eye as a star over time people get close to them. Almost as if they are a part of your own family. I honestly feel like I lost a member of my own family or a very dear friend. Its so sad. I really want to write something about this man that is moving... So hopefully this is good because its not in me right now. I can hardly think. Watching Tv, searching the web. Michael is everywhere right now. He was working on a come back album which was going to be his last one. He was going to collaborate with some other singers and it was going to be great. I was really looking forward to it. I hope that people remember him for the loving, special, caring guy that he was and not for anything bad. I pray for him and sincerely hope that he is in Heaven with our Lord looking down at us. I am sure that he wouldn't want us to be sad but its very hard. Michael if you can see this right now you will be missed and like you hopefully knew your fans were like friends. We love you so and won't forget.
In remembrance of The King Of Pop, an icon and a special man.
<3<3 Michael Jackson <3<3
Love, Melody *(SecretMae)*

I can't stand to look at my pictures. They are just a figment of me that is I feel never real. Every time I strive to express a happier Melody I fall short. It always creeps up and I am lost in the fog. This dark cloud is corrupting all my thoughts. What is the reality? Which way is up or down? My emotions switch in an instant. My loved one?s I don?t want to hurt so some of the time I am quiet or in a lie. Smiling when I know all I want to do is cry. Will this ever be ok? Can I fight the demon taking over my mind? Shall I be normally me in time or is this version correct? Connect me to my thoughts. The girl who I use to be was so bright and carefree. Outside I am a woman who is strong and happy. I love my world and it will all be ok. On the inside I am a child crying for hope and attention. I need help with nearly everything and when I am alone what little happiness within seeps away. Yes that?s right I do get happy. Although it never lasts for to long the cloud always comes back around. I hate that damn cloud...

I was watching the movie RENT when I realized that they have a good moral to the story. Its a story of a group of people struggling to survive in such a fast paced world. They all have dreams that keep them going. However as its not as hard as it sounds to stay on that path. We all come to this point in our lives where we want to follow our dreams yet they seem so far away. But what keeps the one's who don't give up going? The fact that we know tomorrow will shine another day. Another chance to prove ourselves. So whenever you feel like your dream is to far away remember this...
When a baby is first born its dream is to speak. It tries with all its might and finally the words come.
We all have different ambitions... add yours into the comment box below.
Mine is to be happily married and also become a famous writer. A New York Times best seller!!

This picture is from the Delaware coast. My boyfriend and I was driving along and looked up in the sky. We seen the biggest rainbow that you could ever imagine. This photo was took by my phone so its not that great and doesn't capture the true essence of its beauty. However you can see that there is two rainbows back to back. They both stretched accross the whole sky. It was an amazing sight to see. I have not seen one that big since I was about 2 or 3 years old. Times in life like this make you think. As I was standing with him next to the beach with only a few others around... I wondered, is this what life is for? Living for the high moments rather then the lows. It really made me think about my life and how much of an advantage I have. Thats what some don't do. They look at the bad things in their own life and don't give an account to the good things they have going for them. Pay more attention, its hard but worth it.

Sometimes in life you have to do things that you aren't really sure of. I have experienced one of those things recently. It was so scary because it was an unknown terriory but in the end now everything is ok. Have you ever thought about this? Time is like water and water is constantly moving. It never stops. ALTHOUGH Time can be moved in another direction. We all know that. Also time can be frozen. When its frozen it doesn't move. Can we do that with time? If we found out how to what would happen? What things might we change if we could have ourselves remain moving? I don't know what I would change. But I might go around spying on people lol.

This is quite annoying... I haven't been knowing what to write about. However the urge for writing is there. I look at my sheet of paper or on my computer wordpad and I want to fill it up with wonderous words. Words that spell out a meaning of some sort. Nothing though... I am getting a laptop soon though. So I will be able to go outside and take my older creations with me. Maybe then I might find a spark of creativity that will get me into having waves of beautiful ideas again. Don't get me wrong, I have thousands of ideas. But its just getting them down and keeping them going thats the problem.

Right now its about 2:31pm and I am waiting for the Mediacom people to come and hook us up with some cable. They are taking forever and its so ridiculous. Anyway its raining outside and has been all day. But the rain is so pretty. I was watching it earlier while laying down on the couch. Its so peicefull. I called up some job that I applied for again today and the dag on manager told me to call back Monday... more waiting. If they tell me to call back again then I am going to say nevermind with that job. But my older brother might be letting my younger brother work with him. It would be good for Matt (younger brother) to get out and earn some moola. I would work with them to but whatever...

I was getting ready to lay down in my bed last night and I got an urge to write. So I got one of my many notebooks and a pencil. I turned on my blacklight and layed down and began. Thoughts were flooding into my mind. I wanted to get them all down but it seems that there is never enough time. My hand doesn't go that fast. But it calmed me down a lot. I went to sleep feeling refreshed. So I am going to make that an everynight thing I think. But anyway today I got up wanting to write again. I have always wanted to write a book and I have so many thoughts and idea's in my mind. One of them is bound to be a hit... But I think that I am going to start on one of those idea's. Since I have been wanting to write so much and I have so much time on my hands right now I might as well make good use out of it.

If I could explain my life right now in so many words to you or anyone who is willing to listen what would I say?
My life is boring right now. I don't have a job so that means I don't have a car nor do I have money to spend a lot. But I am looking for one and I suppose that counts. Although I should have already got off my butt and had one. I don't know why I didn't though... to scared to face reality I guess. You know its easier to live in your own seperate world then to be in this one and face the chances of getting hurt. I quit highschool about 4 or so years ago. It is something I regret everyday and if I had it to do over I would! But to live in the past is like living in my own little world and we already covered that part. Although I do have some good parts of my life also. I adore nature and whenever I am in it, it makes me a bit more happy. I am in a G.E.D. class with my cousin who quit also. That makes me feel a lot better! I won't go into why right now though. But I have fantastic friends that I think would stick by me no matter what; at least they have this far. Well in a nut shell thats my life right now. I wish it were a bit better but it could be a lot worse.
