Earnestine Smart is the author of Words of Inspiration from the Power of My Pen, which is a gift from the Lord. I grew up in a small town outside of Leesburg, Florida among four sisters and four brothers. As a young girl, I developed a love of writing poems. In 1981, while working as a domestic engineer, the words of inspiration flowed heavily on my mind for �A Highway Called Holiness.� I immediately wrote on a brown piece of paper until it could be rewritten; sometimes it goes and comes. I claim nothing of my own, but I�m greatly thankful to be able to receive something and put it on paper so that someone else can read it and get happiness from it. As a caregiver of health care, these poems have touched many hearts. As this book is being published, I�m in hope that it will bring continued joy. While now living in Sarasota, Florida, I can still share this inspiration within to others of a distance as well as family and friends. While working in a flower garden or walking on the beach or even in the contentment of my home, I can write about something that intrigues me. Four years before 9/11, the inspiration of �America the Beautiful, Sweet Liberty� was stirred while looking across the Manatee River at the flag�as its banner was waving in the wind. The results of what seems to have been a premonition. I sensed her crying in the wind as she called to me. I�m her true friend; I�m a soldier going to war. These are the gifts that stir the heart and set the mind to wonder.
