I possess powerful qualities
Most people want the benefits
yet are unwilling to make the sacrifice.

I have the power to heal
But I can’t be found
in hospitals or medical buildings.

Most doctors refuse to tell you about me
But you can find me
in most homes throughout the country.

I come with a price
But money’s not my game.

I'm not expensive
And I cleanse deep within.

I have purifying and redeeming powers
And strengthen every human body.

I have the power to destroy
And the power to heal.

Do you know what I am?
Do you know my name?

What's My Name?

If you send me the answer to the poetic riddle, you will be entitled to receive 10% off the purchase of any book through our online store (

My inspiration came by way of a sermon heard today. It was not the title or subject of the sermon, just some words used during the pastor's message.



What’s My Name?

I’m a small-size rectangle
But I come in many sizes
I’m often used for exchange
But I’m flat and exciting.

If I were your friend
You’d want plenty more
No matter how many you had
You’d always want more.

Some people will harm others to get me
I have the power to bring great distress
Some people will give me away freely
But wise men know the value I possess.

I cause suicidal tendencies
Because of the power within
I’ve been known to rescue many
But I have the power to make you sin.

If you make a wise choice
You’re sure to be a winner
God will sing and rejoice
If you share me with others.

A New Beginning

Another blog account!  My first poetry book was printed in 2004.  A new color poetry book was published in 2010, and I'm working on a third!

Here's a brief bio:
Kathleen Schubitz is a living testimony of God’s love and His power to save to the uttermost! As one of six children raised in a dysfunctional, alcoholic home, she left home at the age of 18 to survive, searching for love and acceptance she craved. Instead, she found more abuse and intense pain. In desperation, she turned to the very thing she hated, alcohol and drugs, to escape a world of dark sorrows.

Searching for an answer, Jesus, the True Lover of her soul, entered in and captured her heart forever! She experienced first hand His redeeming love and restorative power and total forgiveness. With a desire to love her Creator without limitations, she expresses her overwhelming gratitude through poetry, music, writing, and dance. Her fervent hope is to see others healed, whole, and complete in Christ. Her writing is the vehicle that will inspire others to seek the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

Now with a constant flow of words coming forth, revised editions of books have been and will continue to be published.  In the meantime, I thought some of the poetry could be enjoyed by other readers (and poets).

God's creativity for writing comes through many experiences. My prayer is that sharing them with those who enjoy poetry will be inspired.
