"Artists Are The Breath of Creation"

By Daniel Lawrence Chesnut Sr 2007

 Artists Are More Than Notes Framed In The Structure of A Vibrated Wave, Creating Time Through Its Occupation Of Our Hearing,

Artists Are More Than The Stimulation To Our Eyes, Through The Birth Of Vision, Bringing In A Wave Of Color Or Lack Thereof, Creating Emotion And Excitement In Thought And Soul,

Artists Are More Than The Healing Brought To Our Temporal Soul And Bodies Through Touch,

Artists Are The Breath of Creation, Which We Behold And Receive Through Our Senses, In Life.

"The Gift From The Shallow Purse"

By Daniel Lawrence Chesnut Sr 2007

Count Not The Worth Of The gift, By Its Cost In Dollars And Cents,

From One Who Gave Out Of Their Abundance, From A Large Purse, Gifts For The Giving,

But Count The Cost To The One Who Gave, Out Of A Shallow Purse, Worn From Searching,

With A Trembling Hand To Reach Deep In And Find, And Gave Her Last Dollar, With A Smile.

"To You And To Your Gift"

By Daniel Lawrence Chesnut Sr 2007

Once you have been anointed and Have Indwelling Revelation of your gift,
Be Diligent to Prepare Yourself For Honor And Predetermined Plan For Dedication,
Your Daily Life Spent and Exhausted In Time Reserved For Exercise Of Your Gift,
Presenting Your Very Most Focused Effort To Document Your Vision,
For Indifference, Neglect, Ignorance, Lack of Perseverance, Ineffectual Self Control, Lack of Understanding, Loss Of Assurance, Unrewarded Effort, Lack Of Setting And Achieving Goals, Insecurity, Depression, Failure, And Unrealized Potential,
Are The Offspring of Inkept Unexpended Energy In The Pursuit Of Your Gift, That Gift Of Which You Possess, On Loan For Growth Or Loss, Knowing That When Motion and Change, Growth and Development, Are Testimony To Excellence Of Purpose,
And Exhaustion of Concentration And Exhaustion of Energy After The Pursuit of Artistic and Physical Expression Are The Mark of Diligence,
And That Mark Of Diligence, Method of Expression, Growth And Development Are Statute and Law, Which GOD Directed To Be Known By You As Catalyst For Your Carnal Earthly Achievement And Wealth of Person, When Thus Dedication Be Neglected,
Anything Less Is An Abomination To You and To Your Gift.
