1. Doubt is not the absence of faith, Certainty is! therefore 2. It is impossible to be a true Christian and not have doubts.
1.Karen Armstrong 2. Brian Johnston
For love is not about just getting needs met by another, No, love is more like a laser's coherent beam…. For in reflecting back a portion of what is given, The power of what is being created grows Until it can cut through the hardest steel And span the gulf between galaxies.
From the poem 'Driving Alone Through The Sand Hills of Nebraska' by Brian Johnston.
I remember - were there coyotes? Howls that laced peyote nights. Desert air stirred pastel high notes Cliffs that danced with ghostly lights.
From the poem 'A Late Note of Appreciation' by Brian Johnston

since my PH friend Brier Johnston suggested/ordered me to look (again) at his bio, after i had made some mention of it to him, i did, EVEN THOUGH I HAD BETTER THINGS TO DO [pick my toenails; scrape-chalk-irritatingly over chalk boards (maybe only 'old' people will understand that): sort through my underwear drawer to find a CLEAN pair], i dropped what i was doing (ouch!) and hurried to his BIO (HE used capitals for 'bio' in HIS message/order) . now, i didn't mind skimming over what i just read lately, but when i came to the new stuff he had added, i was somewhat shocked to find he had added the following: 12. OK, Brier Edwards complained that I'm a whinny K*** A** when people say they are going to put one of my poems in the 'Most Favorite Poem' category and then don't do it. well, I MAY BE OLD [not as old though as HE claims to be; also i don't mention that i have short-term memory problems (as he mentions about himself) since i think whatever problems i have are minor and probably due to reading too much of what Brian has written], but i TRULY believe the 'brain' has a self-preservation element which allows/forces it to forget some things that are better forgotten! ! ! ! now what was i going to say? oh, yeah, it is about brian's bio add-on about Brier Edwards (i assume that is supposed to be ME, his PH 'friend') . THE ITEM ABOUT me IS TOTALLY FABRICATED! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! 1. i never complained of any such thing as BJ being a whinny[sic] K***A**. actually he may well be a whiny kiss ass (whinny is a sound made by a horse, you dumb farmer! ! !) , BUT, be that as it may, i never called him that. you can open my head and look at my memory bank; then look at his (if he has one) . maybe the NSA has proof that i never said it? 2. i don't recall ever discussing the subject with him which he mentions. by the way i believe he means MyPoemList, not Most Favorite Poem category. i KNOW brian is out for fun, among other things, on PoemHunter, but sometimes he goes TOO FAR. i shall, regretfully, be contacting my lawyerS in the morning! ! ! ! (August 11,2014) Bri (not Brier) Edwards aka bri : ( P.S. don't think your lawyer can get you off just 'cause you misspelled my name!
