Taking Risks & Living Life Fully

Posted by angela.grout@comcast.net on January 24, 2023 at 11:30 PM Comments comments (22)

Steve Jobs reminds me to "Have the Courage to Follow your Heart & Intuition." -His words.

Oprah says the words that resognates with me most..."Every event in life happens as an opportunity to choose love over fear."

and St. Theresa of Lisieux tells me "You must trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to me."


So many great quotes from great people. 

I remind myself daily that "Loving the moment you are in is the most precious way to experience the present of life."

For we are what we experience. so I shall continue to live life energically as possible..and remember the words of Amy Poehler, comedian & actress; "Great People do things before they are ready. they do things before they know they can do it. Doing what you're afraid of, getting out of your comfort zone, taking risks-that's what life is." :-:)

Story Development- The teacher & the ideas

Posted by angela.grout@comcast.net on October 22, 2022 at 3:15 PM Comments comments (0)

In the Middle of the Night, I awake and Write.

The nudge of my Dream becomea real yet unseen.

Then ink stains a page, magically bringing thoughts to be seen.


A science class.

A chalkboard.

Trimesters divided and explained.

 A Pregnancy...


What could happen when the carrier dies....will the idea survive?

Do we bury our ideas...or can we gift them?

Birthing a Book, Business. Birthing a Song, a new Venture; or simply a dream.

Do we bury within?

Will we bury it below?

Shall we gift it?


The footprints in the snow leave more blood than answers.

Oh a dream.

Oh a thought.

Revealing a story, a message, an inspiration as the ink dries on pages.

A teacher dies.

A flower exploded.

But...I repair it. I repair the flower, I kow the teacher.

The stain on the rug dries, and the truth of the lessons learned bring me guidance.

Looking at me with her fluffy hair...I know. I know.


"Listen to me" she says softly,

I cannot fathom her request...so I drive away.

The dogs are barking.

The snow is fresh.

He looks somber as I make a request.


"Open the Casket." I whisper to him.

She echos in my ear, "I am beautiful. Too beautiful for you."

I pull away from the embrace, learning he never did look her in the face.


In the middle of the night, I understand her fate.

Innocent yet guilty of a secret she had to face.


Hiding evidence, he plants what he must.

Knowing the truth of why he came home so late.


Now she is dead. 

A bullet to the head.


And I am faced with ink stains on my bed. 

Dreaming, Writing, Living, Breathing.


The visit of a dream, brings so much inspiration and yet so many questions.


Writing the answers is a process. Knowing the answer is a guess.

Sharing the story is a gift.

Jessica Briggs and Roe vs. Wade

Posted by angela.grout@comcast.net on July 8, 2022 at 11:30 PM Comments comments (0)

Jessica Briggs didn't take Plan B, but what happens to her has happened when proper medical care is overlooked. The reversal of Roe vs. Wade is demonstrated in Jessica's story...unplanned and preventable.

It is frightening to think there are girls like Jessica who may have to find medical attention/professionals on the sidelines to help.

Yes two lives are at stake with a pregnancy however saving a septic mother shouldn't be a question. 

Jessica Briggs's death puts more lives at stake than an unborn baby. Want more???  

Jessica's story is available on Amazon!  Purchase and Read AM Grout's APRIL RAiN, Innocent Motives and Guitly Secrets

Prevailing over anxiety

Posted by angela.grout@comcast.net on January 23, 2022 at 7:00 PM Comments comments (1423)

We must trust.

We must be trustful.

We must have faith.

We must be faith filled.

We must use our abilities to make a difference.

To fill the world with kind words, actions, and gestures.

This will prevail over any anxiety.

Rainbows

Some need rainbows.

Some need the signs.

Many need them to know me.

For I am the darkness that can see through the cloud.

My light shines even on the darkest of days.

In the darkest of nights, I find a way to lighten your heart... so that you may be light.

Do not fear me.

Fear only the fear of knowing life evolves at the right pace.

Peace be with you.
