|"Make a joyful noise" sketch by Gloria Poole of Missouri and Georgia; 22-Feb-2014 in mixed media of graphite, watercolors and acrylics. Celebrate pregnancies as the blessings of GOD in accordance with Holy Scripture.|
I, Gloria Poole, drew this sketch during the nite last night or actually early am, about 4am, because I could not sleep. And then painted it in watercolors and acrylics when I got up later. It is my way of illustrating making a joyful noise. I draw any time I cannot sleep, sometimes with an idea on my mind. Artists are that way--an idea for a painting sort of haunts them til they get it done. Sometimes, I am not sure why I can't sleep, and other times I know exactly why. Oh, yea; before I forget: I signed this twice. At about 5 am after drawing it, and then after I had decided to paint it and did paint it in acrylics and watercolors at about 11 am today. And the zero in the 2014 is not unusual for business school alums [me] but I usually do not write it that way on paintings. I was tired and sleepy. Also, I put circles in the star to represent men's you know what that is necessary to produce living babies., hopefully, as a way of drawing men into this debate.
So, ok, here's the thing: there is so much controversy back and forth about pregnancy, which is a very natural, GOD-created event. Why it is so controversial can be explained by the attempt of the devil to defy every word GOD ever spoke. In Genesis 1: 28, KJV, it is written, "And GOD blessed them, and GOD said unto them, 'be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth, and subdue it..." . But in the natural realm [as opposed to the supernatural realm of heaven] humans often try to defy GOD, and they try to take control and by doing so, often ruin their lives.
Anyone, who has ever read any words of mine, knows I am a Registered Nurse of career postitions [before, not now] and that I blog on the #prolife cause often. This blog is a PROLIFE blog to encourage women and men not to kill their offspring in the womb [or any where else].
The appropriate response to a pregnancy is to make a joyful noise unto the Lord, and celebrate the blessing of GOD. It is written, "make a joyful noise unto THE LORD, all ye lands. " Psalms 100:1l; KJV. Also, Psalms 103:1-5 is written, "bless THE LORD , o my soul, and all that is within me, bless HIS HOLY NAME. Bless THE LORD, o my soul and forget not all HIS benefits; who forgiveth all thine iniquities and healeth all thy diseases; who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with loving kindness and tender mercies; who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's. " I am adding these passage of scripture because it is also a PROLIFE scripture--it tells WHO gives healing. And how to get it [by repenting of your sin and asking GOD for mercy]. Repentance is an important element before forgiveness is given by GOD. I don't think humans ever forgive as GOD does. And it tells how to "renew your youth"[ by blessing and praising GOD].

In other words, no one should be logging into this from remote to my apartment! I have other blogs that are for #prolife, and other blogs that I put art on. You can see the list of those on my blog at: https://gloriapoole.blogspot.com.
Also, for the record, I am a white, woman, single again [divorced twice, and a Southern Baptist [Christian] , prolife activist and a republican, a blogger, photographer, poet, an author of a children's book. I am also a Registered Nurse licensed in Missouri; and an artist in all mediums. And I am the natural mother [conceived the usual way and delivered the usual way] mother of two grown daughters who are Jennifer and Leigh. I wrote that sentence because I heard a 30-something woman say something like all professionals have C-sections. That is not true. All professionals who know the risk of that to themselves and their babies, do not decide to have elective c-sections. Also, for legal matters and purposes of copyright: I removed the Pappas name from my name forevermore after second divorce, in Arapahoe County District Court in Colorado in Oct 2007; and resumed my maiden name by Court order at time of final decree in Oct 2007. I moved to Missouri Oct 31, 2009; and have continued my prolife activism and creating art. I sign my paintings as simply Gloria in my hand-writing and in paint or inks; and usually sign pencil drawings and some sketches in my full name. I own the copyrights to all art I create, and words I write in any location, for any reason, with any medium; or tool; at any time, whether or not I was married at the time; and even when I worked in hospitals as RN[ especially then to relieve stress!].. I have created art intermittently since I learned mechanical drawing in high school, including during both marriages and then both divorces. I am also known on web as: gloriapoole; Gloria as seen on art I create and sign' Gloria Poole, RN; gloriapoole.RN; gloria-poole; gloria.poole; gloria_poole; gloriapoole1749; artist-gloria; Artist Gloria Poole; gloriapoole-paintings; gloriapooleRN at yahoo; and other variations of my real, born with, legal name of Gloria Poole. It is necessary to write all of this because someone tried to hijack a cell phone of mine 2 days ago, and I had to do a password reset that was very complicated today, to get back into my account. I am trying to provide internet providers and law enforcement enough info to know who I am and where I am, to get their help when I need it. I am law -abiding and a U S citizen by birth.
