To My Daughter

Posted by:

Sometimes when I’m sleeping my children are the pictures in my dreams. And I truly don’t think that a parent ever stops balancing their lives within their own no matter how many years have gone by. Last night I was rereading the chapters in my Little Girl’s life and I knew sometimes my importance was not always a magnificent one, if I could I would rewrite her book.

As I write these words there will be some that cling ...

Love is kind

Posted by:

There is so much babble that is rampant in our world today and it’s getting increasingly difficult not to be discouraged by it. We absolutely cannot let ourselves be measured by the worth in the messages that this world sends out, there just clanging cymbals of noise! Never have I heard the word love thrown around so easily and without a price. Real love serves and costs you everything! Measure the power of your words by this truth and then ...

Are You Ready?

Posted by:

Today I’ve been thinking about Daniel’s last words the night before he died. That he said he “was ready to meet Jesus” and I guarantee he never knew it would be the next day, nonetheless he was ready! And if we look at the outward condition of our lives we are left disappointed for we judge by things, but God looks at the heart and not the shortcomings of our best efforts! I can barely comprehend why I do the ...

I Thessalonians 5: 17-18

Posted by:

Does it ever feel like you’re just spinning your wheels and the path your on is not to your liking? I have been feeling like that lately. I have been off work for 3 months now and anxious to return to some kind of semblance of normalcy. I just might be a routine kind of girl as I want to be back to what I was doing before I started having back issues, however it is becoming apparent that I ...

Our hope is in Him

Posted by:

It still seems so unconceivable that you’re just not here on this earth anymore and that you are never going to walk through Mom’s door again. It’s been 6 years today but it feels like yesterday I was pleading with God to let you stay. I miss your unmistakeable joy and your beautiful smile. I miss every second that you were here with me for I carry within me the incredible cost of your absence and just how undeniably missed ...

Friend’s Poem

Posted by:

Have you, like me, ever postulated the age old question, where is God?

Have you tried in vain, to explain, a possible answer when tragedy strikes?

Or did you refrain from words of comfort you thought might not

How do you tell the one who knows our Lord above, about His love?

Explain if you can why He heals some, but not others

Tell me now if you can explain why some must live in horrific pain?

Or tell if you can the reason why ...

Until we meet again

Posted by:

Right now it’s so easy to see this life through broken eyes, lost moments and powerful regrets but even that perspective is a choice. My Friend left us today and started on a new journey, a journey into forever!

He wasn’t a perfect man but he was an absolute friend. He wasn’t one to express his love in words but was quick to lay down a good deed your way. His greatest wealth was the people he shared his life ...

Redeemer

Posted by:

I just left my friend’s house and I don’t really expect to see him alive again. I know that’s downright honest and it’s so real! I hate that he has cancer and I hate that we are left to feel the magnitude of his loss.

But you know what I hate more is the wife who won’t have the support of her husband and the children that will miss the guidance of their Father. Life on this planet can really ...

Romans 3:23

Posted by:

I was taking to my Friend today and we were reminiscing on our earlier days together when within me I started to weep. My Friend has cancer and I cannot fathom my earthly journey without his input. Yes that’s my Friend he always has a response to my unending, trivial chatter and I wonder if he knows that in my life he cannot be repeated! My Friend has always been there for me and though he acts so unaffected by ...

Hebrews 9:27

Posted by:

I went to visit a friend yesterday that has been living with cancer. As I was talking with him the factuality of how undeniably one-sided life can be at times grasped my heart and I could not contain my tears for I barely can fathom life without him. But the bible says “it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.’ We are all going to leave this world and most people say the only ...
