I, Gloria Poole, drew, painted, signed; and photographed several times and uploaded this sketch of an eagle swooping down to scoop up a fish from the sea, today 16 August, 2014 to illustrate a verse in the Bible. It is acrylics over watercolor and yes, the paper was probably not intended for watercolor [but dry media only] and so I almost ruined it] and is 8 x 11 inches in size.
It is written: "Doth the hawk fly by thy wisdom and stretch her wings toward the south? Doth the eagle mount up at thy command, and make her nest on high? She dwelleth and abideth on the rock, upon the crag of the rock, and the strong place. From thence she seeketh the prey, and her eyes behold afar off. Her young ones also suck up blood and where the slain are, there she is. " Job 39: 26-30, KJV
This scripture verse is one of the many in Job chapters 38 to chapter 41 all verses in which THE ALMIGHTY GOD calls on human Job to repent of his attitude and accusations about GOD; and in which GOD describes all the things only HE can do. I love those scriptures! When you read them you will feel teeny-tiny small HUMAN, finite, very aware of just how-not-powerful you or any other human is, compared to GOD. When you are tempted to accuse GOD or rail against HIM with rantings about how you think GOD owes you something, I urge you to read those chapters in Job.

For the record [because there are many imposters of words that WORK and of me personally]: I am the Gloria Poole who began words that WORK and coined the term and registered it as an LLC in the state of Georgia in early 1990s; and wrote for it always, and who registered it as an LLP in the state of Colorado and then changed the status to a sole proprietor when I moved to Missouri Oct 2009. words that WORK has never had IRS designation of not-for-profit and never applied for that status because after I got the paperwork [as owner. managing partner for always] to apply for that status and read the terms and conditions, I realized that not-for-profit status had too many conditions and too much government control of it to be of much use to me. So, I never applied for not-for-profit status at any time in any capacity for my name or any LLC or LLP and decided that writing under the auspices of the First Amendment as U S citizen is more powerful. I am also the Gloria Poole who is a Registered Nurse licensed in Missouri [and before that in state of Georgia for about 26 years] and an artist in all mediums, a poet, writer, blogger, photographer, natural mother of two grown daughters who are Jennifer and Leigh, republican, citizen journo, prolife activist, personhood amendment promoter, University of Georgia alumnus; and U S citizen born in the state of Georgia. I, Gloria Poole, am also a Southern Baptist Christian WOMAN, single again , twice-divorced. Gloria Poole is my real, born with, legal name. I divorced a second time in Arapahoe County Colorado from male DBP and removed the Pappas surname of his from my name forevermore and resumed my full maiden name including my surname of Poole in Oct 2007 by order of Arapahoe County Colorado District Court Judge at Centennial, CO. You can read some of the events that led up to that in the blog that is mine still that I began when I was married that four years at https://gloriapoolepappas.blogspot.com and also on my blog in my born with, legal name at https://gloriapoole.blogspot.com.I have brown hair and you can see my this year's selfie on my about me page on https://gloriapoole.blogspot.com and maybe on the about me page on this blog. I wrote maybe because my accounts are hacked often by criminals at remote so I document that and continue. Also, I moved to Missouri on Oct 31, 2009 with all the art I had created in Colorado with exception of about ten items of art I created that were stolen by exhusband DBP.
