Illustration of the mercy of GOD, by Gloria Poole of Missouri and Georgia.

I, Gloria Poole, am adding here an illustration I drew and painted and signed and photographed and uploaded today to make a point. If you remember on another blog of mine at I put an illustration of the straight and narrow path to heaven. This sketch I am adding here today is for those who didn't stay on the straight and narrow path to heaven, who ran amuck and directly into the path of THE LIVING GOD. I have good news for you: GOD forgives when you repent; and He shows mercy. The illustration here is one I had to think on a bit to think how to illustrate the concept of mercy. If you look at this sketch, it is a winding road with all sorts of living plants along it, to represent the prickly and thorny way for those who jump the fence of GOD's commandments> straight and narrow path, and run wild. If you look again, you will see to the right, a bench that is sort of unobtrusive at first glance. It represents the mercy seat. The Bible says clearly that GOD has a mercy seat; and I will include some of those scriptures below the sketch. The mercy seat in this sketch is not as the Bible described it [made of gold when GOD sits on it]; but I painted it to resemble painted wrought iron to be sturdy and weather-proof to endure for all time. It is there for the wayward too, to give them time to sit down, reflect on where they are going and turn around and go in the opposite direction [back to GOD]. And it is there for those who are so far from GOD that they have no clue where they are going. And it is there for those who are merely stubborn and disobedient temporarily to the Commandments of GOD; to give them rest from the wayward broad path that leads to destruction. You see that the broad path to destruction is not visually unattractive at first. It's only when you climb through thorny plants and get scratched and bitten by insects, and encounter things like snakes, [also in the human form] that you stop to think, is this the right way?

I admit is not a perfect sketch. When I started it, my idea for it was very vague and it sort of developed as I kept drawing. The sketch itself is not the object of this--it is only to illustrate mercy.

Scriptures on this topic:

It is written:

"Thou shalt have no other gods before Me. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them; for I, THE LORD, thy GOD am a jealous GOD, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; and shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love Me, and keep My commandments. " Exodus 20: 3-6, KJV.

"And thou shalt put the mercy seat upon the ark of the testimony in the most holy place. " Exodus 26:34, KJV.

"And THE LORD said unto Moses, "I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken; for thou hast found grace in My sight, and I know thee by name. "And he said, "I beseech Thee, shew me Thy glory." And he said, " I will make all My goodness pass before Thee, and I will proclaim The Name of THE LORD before thee; and I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious; and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy. " Exodus 33: 17-19, KJV

"THE LORD is long suffering and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgress, and by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation. " Numbers 14: 18, KJV

"Know therefore that THE LORD thy GOD , HE IS GOD, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love Him and keep His commandments to a thousand generations. And repayeth them that hate Him to their face, to destroy them; He will not be slack to him that hateth Him; He will repay him to his face. " Deuteronomy 7: 9-10, KJV

"THE LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and exalted be THE GOD of my salvation. It is GOD that avengeth me, and that bringeth down the people under me, and that bringeth me forth from my enemies. Thou also hast lifted me up on high above them that rose up against me. Thou hast delivered me from the violent man. Therefore, I will give thanks unto Thee, O LORD, among the heathen, and will sing praises unto Thy Name. HE IS the tower of salvation for His king; and sheweth mercy to His anointed, unto David and his seed forevermore." II Samuel 22:47-51, KJV

JESUS said, "blessed are the merciful. for they shall obtain mercy. " Matthew 5:7, KJV

"As He spake by the mouth of His holy prophets, which have been since the world began, that we should be saved from our enemies; and from the hand of all that hate us; to perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember His holy covenant; the oath which He sware to our father Abraham, that He would grant unto us , that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies, might serve Him without fear, in holiness and righteousness before Him, all the days of our life And thou, child, shall be called the prophet of The Highest; for thou shalt go before the face of THE LORD to prepare His ways, to give knowledge of salvation unto his people by the remission of their sins. through the tender mercy of our GOD; whereby the Dayspring from on High hath visited us, to give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace." Luke 1: 70-79. KJV

Copyright Notice: I, Gloria Poole, residing in Missouri but born in state of Georgia, own this blog and all rights to it. I created it to begin with, years ago [but modified last year] , and have continued it after I moved to Missouri Oct 31, 2009. I own all rights to this blog and to all content of it. I created the art and signed it, that I put on it,and photographed it;and uploaded it to this blog. I have the original paintings and sketches. I also own all rights to any art, words, graphics I have created or do create in any place, for any reason or no reason, with any tool or method or brush on any surface, at any time. I have never assigned my copyrights to any one and I do not have an artist's rep or a literary agent at this time and have never had either [in the past]. I sign my name on art as Gloria, and on some sketches as Gloria Poole. Gloria Poole is my real, born with, legal name since I resumed it legally after my 2nd divorce which was in Arapahoe County Colorado. I removed the Pappas name from my name forevermore by order of District Court Judge at time of final decree of divorce from male DBP in Oct 2007 who lives in Colorado; and I resumed my maiden name including my surname of Poole. I moved to Missouri on Oct 31, 2009. I am also known on the web as; gloriapoole; Gloria as on art such as this which I signed when I completed it; gloria.poole; gloria-poole; gloria0817; gpoole817; gloria_poole; gloriapoole1749; gloriapoole.RN; gloriapooleRN at yahoo in which the RN means standard abbreviation for Registered Nurse; and as artist-gloria; artist-gloriapoole; gloriapoole-paintings; Poole, Gloria; Ms. Gloria Poole; Gloria Poole creator of words that WORK and Tapestry of LIFE; and as other variations of my real, born with, legal name of Gloria Poole. And I am known as G-L-O-R-I-A on and I had three domains with much art I created with my name written that way, for about 6 yrs until they were stolen from me by cyberthugs. I also had many domains and many with my very name written as gloriapoole in them from years 2004-2011 when criminals broke into my web-hosting accounts and ripped my domains and content right out-of-admin-panel. I have not bought domains since , because there is no security on web-hosting 'packages" because they do not honor business law or contract laws or any laws that I can tell since web-hosting companies do not try to stop cyber-criminals. I have other blogs that I put art I draw, paint, sign, photograph and upload too; and other blogs for the prolife cause. The copyright on this blog covers all words and art I create and I, Gloria Poole,of Missouri and Georgia, own the copyrights to all art and words I write AND to Tapestry of LIFE.

For the record: I am white, single again [divorced twice], woman with brown hair, Southern Baptist Christian, and the mother of two grown "children" who are daughters named Jennifer and Leigh. I am also a Registered Nurse licensed in Missouri; and an artist in all artists' mediums; and a blogger, tweeter, poet, author of children's book, and citizen journo; and photographer. I was born in the state of Georgia and am a US citizen by birth so I have all Constitutional protections including the First Amendment right to publish, speak, write, protest and the right not to associate with ungodly in general and atheist perverts in particular, or with violent murderous people or with alcoholics or with d-r-ug-a-d-d-ic-t-s [spelled to try avoid being labeled as wrong sort of person by political censorship on the prowl].

Also, for the record [for purposes of copyright and law enforcement {because several facets of my identity such as state of Georgia issued ID were stolen from me more than once and they were in tangible form}], I am not an employee of anyone, and Gloria Poole is my real, born with, legal name {but I have a middle Christian, given name at birth also that I never write as part of my signature}; and I draw, paint, sketch, photograph, tweet, blog , write from my own private apartment in Missouri, which is NOT shared with anyone. I work for myself in other words from my home studio-office which is a dedicated room for that purpose. I think the criminal who stole my GA ID and my Holy Bible with my name printed on it, cut my photo out of the ID and inserted his accomplice's photo which is how it was used to access bank and credit union accounts of mine that began in Colorado. I lived in Colorado only a few yrs and was married a second time there for only 4 yrs and ten months before final decree of divorce from male DBP there. both divorces of mine are public record--one in Georgia and one in Colorado. I moved to Missouri on Oct 31, 2009 to the same apt I am creating this blog from, which is my only residence.

I have NEVER had blond hair even as a tiny child. Both of my daughters were very blond up until college, but their hair is also darker more like mine now. But I know for certain that one of the accomplices of DBP who lives in Colorado dyes her hair a platinum [false looking] blond because she's old and gray- headed if hair not dyed blond. That is a statement of fact relevant to an on-going investigation into who is using my name and identity. I have been reported as blond yet I have NEVER been blond and NEVER dyed my hair. If you see my selfie from 15-March-2014 on about me page on and on and other blogs of mine including, you see the slight grey tendrils at my temples in my hair. I reason I earned them! And I'm keeping them. Gloria Poole; at my apt in Missouri, 6-April-2014; at 12:49pm
