In truth, beauty seeks goodness.. What is beautiful is good and what is good is beautiful

There was a pause when I stopped suddenly and kept thinking of God.
In religion lesson I asked the teacher about Being of God. Girls and teacher considered my thoughts as ways to atheism. But no, this is impossible. It is impossible that my thoughts lead me to be an atheist. I just adore God and love to think deeply and greatly of him. My thoughts lead me to love him more and more.
Teacher and girls said that we only believe in God and know that he makes everything, and we do never have to think of being of God.
I believe in that saying when somebody asked other " Can this hole have the capacity of that river?" .
" No" the second answered.
" So, How can your little mind have the capacity for thinking of God and his being?!!". the first replied.
Yes, God is something Great. The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful and The Greatest.
I don't only believe that God makes things and we have to believe in him, but also I believe that God causes the reasons of our happiness and great moments, the one who gives us the power to overcome the ordeals that we face in our lives, the one who gives us the strength to achieve our ambitions and dreams. God always sends angels to protect us wherever we go. God was there in the school, there in that spot where a great explosion happened and where I stood terrified and confused having no idea about what I can do in moments of suffer and despair. God is the one who made that great thing which fill our days with kind rays that lead us to reach what we like to reach, he made our beautiful Sun.
I think God hides something beyond the Sun, and I have to continue my way to reach beyond the sun.
Many feel afriad that they might see Sandybelle in the TV talking about God atheistly, I think that they feel afraid of thinking because their faith isn't like mine. My faith leads me to think and then to find. And when I thought for another while I " I can see God in my heart, in the mirror, in the river, in the sky, in my shadow, in the sun, in my mom's eyes, among my great memories, among my words and … and then I see him looking upon me with pity".
I realize how much God is great especially when I feel gloomy and when I shelter in prayers and how much comfortable and free after that.
God gives us the ability to learn the right form the wrong and to be forgiving with others. God taught us the right ways that lead us to live in our lives happily and with peace and love.
This is God for me. And I can't spend any day without thinking of him. And my faithful gives me the power to love, help, listen, read,.. and to do all things I love to do and all things I believe in.
Many girls ask me about my main ambitions in the life, what I love to be and how I love to be. Someone says" You are a bit obscure Sandybelle ,and I really love to ask you about you".
I smiled when she asked. I just told her:
" first of all, let me tell you that I believe in everything helps me to reach beyond the sun. In my life there is a great sight of hope as you see and know, also ambition.
My dreams are my life, because the life was past caused reasons for present and presents causes reasons for future, and every moment I spend waiting for future gives me the power and the confidence that there is nothing impossible.
For me the doctor is like an angel, especially when I look at him/her and how emotional he/she seems. When he/she treats the patient kindly and beautifully. Also diseases are the main reasons of many ones' problems and misery. This is why I love to be a doctor.
The poverty is another misery for the poor ones, poverty leads many people to think of stealing and killing to get money, and then this leads to find catastrophes in society. And this is why I love to do my best for paupers to lessen the criminals and to create the smile on faces lost it for a long time. I think the great crown of this dream is Noble Prize. And don't you forget that Being poor isn't a shame, but the shame is when you think that poverty is shame.
Singing and acting are nice ways to get money to give to paupers. I know that many artists make concerts and create movies to give the returns to the paupers in their country or any other place in the world. As well as I love acting and singing. I always in times of happiness at home I sing for the family with my sisters and everyone listens attentively.
Being an author is another dream, because I realize that words have power and power can make changes in the world towards the right direction.
….. in fact, I love every work leads to find happiness for the one his/her self or for others. But I believe that good ones in the world see that their benefit is hidden in work brings benefit for others. "
She said" But maybe you will not be able to achieve all of them!!"
" So What?!! I just realize that God helps ones who helps themselves and my ambitions color my life to continue the way. And gives me the ability to carry my message, and to do my best to achieve them. Hope, peace, love and spirit are in my heart and in your heart and the others' hearts and this is why we can stay alive" I answered.
" you are great, I hope I'll be like you, you are in my mind and my love increases especially when I remember that day when I was very sad and was ready to leave the life and then you came as a great care in moments of illness . your words helped me to re-arrange my sheets and stand again. I love to have a younger sister and friend like you" She said.
I just smiled and kissed her. Hehehehe many people wonder about my personality and ones try to discover me themselves and others ask me and others favor to make it as secret.
I have only Secret, secret that I learn from everything I face in my life..
Keep your secrets in your hearts,

And don't you forget that beyond the sun there is something needs to be found and this is why we do our best to find it..Free like the plume and clear like the sky,


P.S. This week was normal with the exception of the explosions that happened, you know explosions are normal, so much homework and many quizzes.Zuzu is doing well in her exams and study. I'm happy for her.

Hey Sandy!
You know, all that is required of us to become God's children is faith and belief. If you believe that God's Son Jesus died on the cross for the forgiveness of our sins and was raised to life to represent the eternal life that is ours, and you have total faith in what God can do in your life, then you are saved by his grace. God requires nothing else, no good works or long prayers. Of course, living one's life for God means you are kind and loving and caring towards other people, but don't consider those good deeds your ticket to heaven. Prayer is how we talk with God, and babbling off in prayer just so others will hear it is not really talking with God. May God bless you and open your eyes to his saving grace,

Faith is one of those issues that can hold so many different meanings to different people...but in the end, I think that all of those who adhere to a religious or spiritual faith want the same thing: happiness, prosperity, and peace...all of which are main points in Christianity, Islam, and Judaism.

When most people think of God, I think that a lot of them imagine some all-powerful being watching over us. While that could be the case, it seems there is more to it, in my view anyway. For one thing, if you are looking to accomplish something great, I think that God can help guide you there through people you meet, who in turn can help you. God can also provide opportunities to lead you on your way, and can help show you the right path by doing so.

I don't know if you believe in destiny or look at it in an "all things are meant to be approach", but I often do. I think that all things happen for a reason...good things at least. When there is evil in the world, it can be overcome with good.

Those who are critical of religion might say "if there is a God, why does he allow for things like Darfur to happen, where thousands of innocent people have died". Well, I think its because there are bad forces in the world, but they can be solved through action by good, caring people who want to help. God helps these people realize their goals, and then they can bring about action and change to make the world a better place. In the end, such horrific events bring people together to confront them.

Anyway, this is the way I see it. It's a complex issue, but I think its great that you think about it and analyze the true meaning. I recently read a book about the different religions in the world, and one main theme was that all of the faiths are paths leading up the same mountain.

Hi Sandy,
I really respect your thoughts, but i must tell you that ilearnt from my teachers, and school that when we have faith in God we never ever should ask what God is or what if I will be God..

We shoul only have faith in our only God and be faithful, honest, believer, and pray to God.
because woundering what if someone will be God it is not logical, it is something belongs to philosophy and ontology, which God nonexistence is one of its main thoughts. And that is not found in our religion "ISLAM".

I'm proud of you girl, Cuz you know how to express your thoughts and feelings in such a beautiful way.
keep on the good work girl, be save.

Hey Sandy,

Good post, you know what? It reminds me of Joan Osbourne, she is a singer who sings: If God was one of us.

Here is the lyrics:

If God had a name, what would it be
And would you call it to his face
If you were faced with him in all his glory
What would you ask if you had just one question

And yeah yeah God is great yeah yeah God is good
yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

What if God was one of us
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make his way home

If God had a face what would it look like
And would you want to see
If seeing meant that you would have to believe
In things like heaven and in jesus and the saints and all the prophets

And yeah yeah god is great yeah yeah god is good
yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

What if God was one of us
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make his way home
He's trying to make his way home
Back up to heaven all alone
Nobody calling on the phone
Except for the pope maybe in rome

And yeah yeah God is great yeah yeah God is good
yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

What if god was one of us
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make his way home
Just trying to make his way home
Like a holy rolling stone
Back up to heaven all alone
Just trying to make his way home
Nobody calling on the phone

Except for the pope maybe in rome


I think you asked a valid question. How do we know things if we don't ask? Outstanding post I believe more and more that we live near eachother we tend to hear the same explosions. I love to read your words especially long days of being out there. I love to watch the people play soccer in the field near us that we helped make for them, I wish we could do more to help. From talking to you and one of our Terps and a couple of other Iraqi's I know that the youth truely hold the future for you country and someday soon you will flourish and explosions will be a thing of the past. I love to drive by places where construction has taken place and what once was burned and broken is intact and painted and nice. Keep on keepin on Sandibelle!!!!!


Ps. If traffic is ever stopped don't get frustrated with me! Maybe you'll see me just wave!

I know I am following after the soldier (by the way sir, thank you for your service to your country...we can never thank you enough), but he is right--it is people like you, Sandybelle, who do hold the key to Iraq's future. Something tells me that when that future arrives and I myself have the opportunity to travel to your country, it will be people like you who will provide the uniting leadership Iraq needs.

Sandybelle, remember we are all in this together--in the fight against the people who are determined to sow chaos upon the people of Iraq...all to often they remind us of that by victimizing people in countries all over the world, from Algeria to Iraq, and from Iraq to Pakistan and as far off as the Phillipines. They think they can divide us, but it will never happen.

God bless you Sandy, and remember that God is looking out for you, and eventually, the efforts of brave Iraqis like you will prevail.

May God help you and all innocent Iraqis, Sandybelle. God bless all the good people of the world. There will be peace soon, insha Allah.

M.Mehdi al Jawahiri would be honoured to have such an incredibly talented fan of his poetry..

I don't want to repeat what everyone else has said, but seriously.. you have a lot to give to your country.. Inshallah one day we'll succeed, you and I and the many Iraqis who still believe in the secret beyond the sun, we'll succeed in bringing a smile back to our faces and proving to people that inhumanity will never defeat us.. because we have people like you amongst us.. :)
