INFORMATION
-------------------------------------------------------------------------.

Through the many years of my life
I have learned many skills and love to share those things God has given me.

I love to write poetry, do computer art, knit and reading.
I live in a beautiful part of the country with mountains to the east of my home and I love to watch the sunrises.
After being on Fanstory now for almost two years I have learned some valuable lessons.
Am trying new poetry formats. I recently have written a cinquain, acrostics, non-fiction essays about wildlife, limericks and even created what I call a word acrostic. Word acrostics are where the first word of each line become a special message to the poem. I also created a format called spaceship, which is syllable based. the line are 1,3,6,8,12,9,6,3,1 centered and the words look like spaceships.

I'm not on this site to become a published author or poet. I am here to write and hopefully write things that will encourage others to do their best and not feel alone in this crazy world.
To learn all the poetic rules at this point in my life is not something I am wanting to do. So please consider that when you review my work. I do enjoy trying new forms of poetry and if what I write is only worthy of a C grade, then you can know I at least tried something new, and challenging.
----------------------------------
My life story is the subject of a radio drama, below is a story of how it all came about.

I live in America, the radio drama was produced in America at the Pacific Garden Mission located in Chicago IL. Pacific Garden Mission is the largest and oldest mission for the homeless and down trodden in the world, it has been running since 1887 or there about. The way my story came about is I sent about 100 pages of stories about my life to the Mission, they in turn passed the stories to a script writer, who took the facts of my story and made it into a drama. There were actors and actresses who played the roles of the various people in my story.

To access my story google Patricia Lawrence unshackled
Go to listen then to the archives for OCT 2014
Name Patricia Lawrence
My program #'s are 3325 and 3326
------------------------------------------------------------------
Here is a message I got from the producer of the Unshackled program where my testimony has been produced as a radio drama.

Hello Patricia,

Thanks for the enormous time that you have given to this amazing
endeavor. All that you have shared will be used by the Lord
to assist our script writer with His story in your life.

Have a great day.
Flossie McNeil

---------------------------------
Each time I have listened to it, at points it brings me to tears even though I know the story.
For folks who know me, they may or may not hear me as I sound, but I don't know if we really know how we sound to others. The story is true and the events were painful in spots, for me to tell. But I am so glad I did it and pray there will be hearts and minds changed when they hear my story.

Here is a message I received from the director of the unshackled programs about how my story is touching people around the world.

Thanks Patricia!

Your story greatly impacted many listeners around the world.

Blessings, Flossie

When I was 19 years old I was the victim of a date rape and became pregnant as a result. When I went home to my family, I was told that I was to have an abortion. I didn't know what that word meant. I asked my family to explain it to me. When they told me what the word meant, I said, "If there is a God I will not have an abortion, as I do not want to answer for taking the life of my child."
Therefore it was my decision to have my child and to relinquish him for adoption. This was without a doubt the hardest thing I have ever done in my life.

Here is a link to a blog that features a part of my life story.

My motto would be: If you want to try something, go for it, you will either learn or you will achieve the desired.

Thanks for your concern and prayers, I had upper chest, neck and jaw pain so had to be put in the hospital, The did and angiogram and found the stents in my hear working well and no more plaque build up in the arteries than was there two years ago. It was determined that the pain was heart related, but was found quickly enough that it did not cause heart damage. The pain could have been caused from stress related to the severe back pain I have endured for the past 2 1/2 years. I was given a light dose of morphine and it relieved the back pain enough that I can get some of my strength back.
After the eighteen days I may again have back pain, and not be able to get more morphine, until I have moved to Phoenix in May, then have to find a doctor there who will prescribe me morphine.

patcelaw: It is heartbreaking to me that we have become
a society where we have to be vulgar to make
a point. I say, if you must be vulgar to make
a point you are seriously lacking in
education. A lot of the words used today,
I would have gotten my mouth washed
out with soap, had I used them. Think smart, write smart and speak smart,
then you will be thought to be smart.
January 14 at 6:55PM
    damommy: Good for you to come out and say what a lot of others are thinking. I agree whole-heartedly. I've always heard that using profanity indicated a weak vocabulary.
    January 14 at 9:24PM
    CD Richards: In principle, I agree. But language changes with time. When I was young, I got my mouth washed out with soap for saying "bum". I also tend to think of people who use expletives every second word as lacking in the ability to express themselves. That said, the occasional f-bomb doesn't bother me. Also, how do you feel about a story where a particularly unsavory fellow is a main character? Surely this depends to some extent on genre. What if I'm writing a gangster novel? Not that I would, they don't appeal to me.
    January 15 at 2:32AM
    patcelaw: I understand that there are story lines where the expletives language may be called for But, making it a common practice may be done for shock value or because the writer has a hate relationship with someone. I have always had the ability to roundly put someone in their place and never use a vulgar word in the process.

patcelaw: Do you have to be a Senior to understand the English language?


Last year I replaced all the windows in my house with those expensive, double-pane, energy-efficient kind.

Today, I got a call from Home Depot who installed them. The caller complained that the work had been completed a year ago and I still hadn't paid for them.

Helloooo!!!???.... Just because I'm a Senior Citizen doesn't mean that I am automatically mentally challenged.

So, I told him just what his fast-talking sales guy told me last year!
These windows would pay for themselves in a year.

Hellooooo!!!???... I told him that It's been a year, so now they are paid for.
There was only silence at the other end of the line, so I finally hung up.

He never called back?!. I bet he felt like an idiot.

October 26 at 10:31PM
    Irish Rain: I need some of those windows Miss Patricia!!

patcelaw: This is a message from my dear friend about the poetry I write. Her words actually brought me to tears, just know how I have touched her life, when it was her touching my life in the way she has over the almost four years we have know each other that bring me to tears.
------------------------------------------------

Thank you, Patricia. Your poetry has been a balm to my soul this summer as I've gone through a period of self-examination and condemnation. This new Bible study I'm in is also helping.

    Irish Rain: Your words are ALWAYS a blessing Miss Patricia.

Why is it that people who predict the end, not sell all their possessions?
September 20 at 8:37AM
    damommy: Very good question!
    September 21 at 2:16PM
    pipersfancy: Ah - but they usually do expect their followers to give up their creature comforts... (maybe a touch hypocritical?)
