I AM the Alpha and the Omega
I Am the Alpha and the Omega
The Beginning and the End
The First and the Last
The Author and Finisher of your faith
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. (John 1:1-4)
He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead. (Colossians 1:18b)
And He placed His right hand on me, saying, “Do not be afraid; I am the first and the last and the living One; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore.” (Revelation 1:17-18)
And He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new. Write, for these words are faithful and true.” Then He said, “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life without cost.” (Revelation 21:5-6)
Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us… let us run with endurance the race that is set before us fixing our eyes on Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. (Hebrews 12:1-2)
For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will bring it to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Philippians 1:6)
For Thou hast enclosed me behind and before and laid Thy hand upon me. (Psalm 139:5)

Welcome to Shale Fragments, a collection of writings and art for individual and group use!
Teaching God’s truth and the beauty of His Word is my greatest delight! My art card company, Flower Girl Greetings, was launched in 2012 with this purpose. In April 2020, ShaleFragments.com became the gathering place for the writings.
As I have studied the rich meanings of the original Greek and Hebrew languages of the Bible, I continue to see beautiful progressions and connections that compel me to organize and convey their life-changing beauty!
