Beautiful Moments of Joy and Peace
The inspiration for this collection of poetry comes from the beauty found in nature, people, music and all of life. These poems are overflowing with joy and express an inner peace that can be found in spite of difficulties and adversity. Connie Arnold has experienced the variety of the beauty of Godas creation in different places during her life, having lived in Texas, Louisiana, Nebraska and, currently, in North Carolina, where she lives with her husband Tom. Her first poetry was as text for music, which has always been important to her. There is music in poetry as well as beauty. She has learned the importance of words and how they can be used for encouraging and healing. Additional inspiration has come from the joys of a happy marriage, two children, their spouses, the recent addition of grandchildren, and other family and friends. These poems are meant to inspire and to offer moments of joy and peace through all circumstances of life. Connie has been dealing with lupus for several years. She has found strength and a sense of healing through the creation of these poems and hopes that, in your reading of them, you will find encouragement, inspiration, joy, and peace.
