The Hypocritical Christian

I am the hypocritical Christian.
I say I follow Christ,
But I'm still consumed by my demons.
I go to church on Sunday,
But I refuse to invite someone back.
I want to serve on mission,
But I'm too afraid to act.
They think I read The Bible,
But I just fall asleep in it.
They think I'm positivity and smiles,
But underneath I'm death and addictions.
They think I'm clean and pure,
But I'm broken and mistaken.
I say I'm not worthy of His love,
But Jesus will never let me be forsaken.
I pray long prayers,
But inside they're empty repetition.
It might look as if my faith is strong,
But my core is too easily shaken.
I say the things I'm supposed to say,
But don't follow His actions or obey.
I speak the truth the church wants to hear,
But deep inside on matters I don't know what to believe.
I walk in shame as if I'm not good enough
To be loved by God and saved through Christ,
But there is nothing I could ever do to earn His peace;
It's a free gift.
I accept;
Now forgiven, changed, and released.
Thank You God,
Thank You Jesus,
Thank You Holy Spirit!
In Jesus' Holy Name,
We pray,
Amen!

Lonely Dreams

I never knew following dreams could be this lonely,
But up on the hill, looking back, thank God I'm not the old me.
If the tears will fall, let them be;
I believe this is God's plan, follow your dreams.

MY LOVE

As I lay at night, across my bed,
Thoughts roaming back to you.
I dream about what lies ahead,
Your smile, your eyes, sea blue....

Thoughts roaming back to you,
My love grows deeper still.
Your smile, your eyes, sea blue,
Brighten up my world so real....

My love grows deeper still,
With words you choose so sweet.
Brighten up my world so real,
You make my life complete...

With words you choose so sweet,
How could I deny your love?
You make my life complete,
Your a gift from God above....

How could I deny your love?
After all that we have shared.
Your a gift from God above,
Even though, we are so scared....

After all that we have shared,
Each day I love you more.
Even though, we are so scared,
These feelings we can't ignore....

Each day I love you more,
Recalling sweet words you've said.
These feelings we can't ignore,
As I lay at night, across my bed....

Pursue Love

Pursue love,
the love that has no meaning,
the silver ports of the moon,
shine so bright,
that it blinds you in the twilight
she is beautiful and she is divine
she is the song sang by the sweet nightingales
in the gardens of worthy, overgrowning and blooming roses,
like wildfire grow tall and the thornes of the vines
tangle around her feet and drag her ever so slightly
throughout the garden of beauty.
As the roses lay along a table,
as she sits at the table
and she waits for me, the wordman
to come to the dinner table at the stroke of nine
and sit with her,
start a scene or two of romantic setting,
to pursue love in her name.
Love is around us,
the candlelight shines and reflects in her silk hair,
as her evening dress glitters and shines
and her bossom shows itself in the nightsky
as we lay together,
we pursue a dream together,
forever we live together forever,
as we stand upon the belcony of Romeo and Juliet's love scene
we swim in a pool of sweet divine care and love,
we swallow grapes and drink wine
hand and hand on Persian rugs and virgin white cloth sheets,
we dance to a simple, yet sweet Chopin's masterpiece
of his beautiful nocturnes,
which make such a sweet and romantic song in our heads.

We stomp out the flames
as we dance the night away,
and you lay in my arms,
and I kiss you upon your lovely head,
and you hold my hand,
and I hold you tight
never thinking of letting your love go away from me,
I would take my own life,
before I lose your love.
See us together,
it is a painting that lasts lifetimes,
that needs no touch-ups.
I care for you and love you!
Love me, I know you will.

My sweet and loving portrait lady,
who in reality is more beautiful than a fully bloomed rose
that sits on its green stem,
in the garden of beauty that sits outside my window.
Come up to my chambers
as I picked roses for you and pettles litter the atmosphere
as love's tension grows
and suspence brings us together,
let us make love tonight
seal the passion
and pursue love once and for all.

Then shall we wake with the first rays of the blazing of the morning sun,
I shall wake next to your beauty and glory,
and I shall point my attention to the heavens
and thank the Gods for sending you on the open road,
toward my chamber door, I call my heart.
Then we shall dress, and walk the pathways
in the garden of beauty
and I shall pick a bauquet of roses
and we shall sit by the lake and pursue our love
for one another
and nothing, not one earthquake shall shake us apart.

A Christmas Conversation

Daddy, were you alive when Jesus was born?

No honey, he was born a long time ago, over 2000 years ago.

Where was he born Daddy?

In Bethlehem, a small town in the desert in a manger,

Whats a manger Daddy?

It's a place where they kept animals to feed them.

You see when Jesus was born the Inn was full, so 
they had to get Mary to a warm place to give birth to Jesus.
that was the only place they could go.

Daddy who is Jesus' Daddy?

God is his Father honey?

But who is Joseph?

The Chosen Father, who God chose to raise him, Mary's Husband

I don't understand Daddy!

God wanted a son, he could not have a son without Mary and Joseph's
help. God asked them both if they would help him, without even thinking
they said yes. God gave to them a great gift, God gave them Jesus.

At that moment God gave us all a great gift, He gave us the Son of Man.

The Son of Man Daddy?

Yes honey, you see God is not Man, not one you can touch, Jesus
was, he healed people who were sick, He showed people how to love God 
and how God loves them. There is one more important thing
I want to tell you honey.

What's that Daddy? Jesus did a coupla more things I think are 
important, there are many of course but two I like.

Go on Daddy!

Jesus taught us how to love without conditions, like the way I love you 
and you love me and your Mom and Brother. But how to love everybody
like that.  The most important thing is, is that he died because we humans
broke God's laws, which means we sinned. He died so God would
forgive us.


Wow Jesus really did love us didn't he Daddy...?

Yes he did baby, and the really good thing is he still does and always will.

Come on it's time for bed!

Not until I say my prayers Daddy!

How bout we Pray together tonight?

I'd like that Daddy!

So would I baby, so would I .

Jump up on my back and I'll give you piggy back ride!

I love you Daddy!

I love you too baby, I love you too.........





My Christmas wish is you all have Conversations like this with your 
kids. Trust me they bring tears of joy!

May God Bless you all this Christmas Season as he has Blessed me.

    From Mary, Josh, Shay and myself  MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR


                             With Love.....Taz

The Reflection

I stare in the mirror, my tears fall in vain
Can’t see my reflection through the veil of this pain.

Who is this person I struggle to see?
I don’t want to judge her but it’s surely not me.

This stranger I cast looks so tired and weak,
I wish I could help her but I’m frightened to speak.

Cause it’s dark and lonely in this shell where I’m bound
Where once there was laughter, is now void of sound.

and the beauty I knew in just yesterday’s time,
seems gone in an an instant with life’s rythym and rhyme…..

Then GOD he spoke child…What do you mean?
You’re more beautiful than anything that I’ve ever seen!

The reflection you cast it don’t matter to me,
What matters is that you can see what I see.

That your spirit is filled with a breath that is true.
And a beauty so deep that this world can’t undo.

I know that your journey seems to heavy to bear.
But I’ve given you family that love and who care.

So hold on tight through the dips and the turns,
For the ones who believe are the precious who learns.

And wether your journey is to stay here or go,
Please know I love you so much more than you know.

I wish I could tell you the beauty that awaits…
But you will know only, when you see heavens gates.

How I Need Jesus


Dear Jesus…  I realize
how much I really need you!
  I want to honor, 
love and trust you!

I  know that others will
disappoint me…
I know that you’re here….  
And will take care of me!

  Your principles of holy
living is what you taught!
Love, Joy and peace…
is what you brought!

 May I bring honor 
 to your name!
Your message of salvation,
I need to proclaim!

Dear Jesus…  You’re all I need!
 And so much more!
It’s you that my life 
was meant for!

 I offer to you, my lord, 
praise and thanksgiving!
For all you’ve done,
 And the life you’re giving!

You all I’ll ever need!  
The anointed one!
There’s victory in YOU!
Life’s battles are won!

Inside the Mind of a Teenager

My head is held high
Despite what I'm going thru
I won't cry
Because it doesn't solve anything
I like to look at life
And say things will get better
Like to tell myself
That I can face the stormy weather
I know that God has my back
And my smile will soon return
Wondering is anyone listening
And does anybody know who I really am
A lot of people would say
She just another teenager
But come to find out
That things are quite different 
Despite my situation
I laugh and not cry
My head is held high
My God only know why
I sat awake at night
Crying silent tears
And just why I have so many fears
And he comforts me in the midst
God I love you 
And through this I say
I trust you through my circumstance

A Childs Prayer - God We Need To Talk

Tonight as my baby girl started to pray
She said God it's 8 O'Clock, 
And God We need to talk.
She said daddy help me pray, 
And daddy bow your head,
As we knelt beside her bed. 
she said God can you hear me?
Mommy always said you'd hear me,
If I would learn to pray, 
And that you would show me the way.

Well God I don't understand. 
Why you took my mommy away.
Daddy always says i'll understand, 
When I grow up some day.
She said God, you need your son. 
Well I need my mommy to,
And I know that my daddy, 
Would be happier with mommy. 
Cause daddy talks to her, 
And mommy's not even there.

God can you please,
Give my mommy wings, 
So she can come to see us.
She always kept our house clean, 
And God I know, 
She keeps your house clean to.
And God I miss mommy's big hugs, 
Daddy says your son gives hugs to.
So I know if my mommy had wings, 
She could hug me and daddy.

Well God I want to thank you,
For being there to listen, 
And God think about what I said.
And tell mommy that I love her, 
And God I love you to.
Oh just one more thing God, 
Help my daddy stop crying.
Thank you God, Amen, 
Then she turned to me and said,
Goodnight daddy, I love you.

I was still on my knees, 
Beside my little girls bed, 
With tears running from my eyes.
I gave my baby a goodnight kiss, 
And said sweet dreams baby girl.
Then I went to my room, 
And kissed my wife's picture, 
And with tears in my eyes,
I knelt down to pray, 
I said God, We need to talk.

Oh Syria

Reality is lost and I fear…
That someday…somewhere so near…
I will fall amongst the people so dear…
I fear…that I’ll just be another one…
Another one lost…

I wonder what the cost of my life is
not to get too political…
But I want to know what the cost of my life is
Is it money…is it land
I do not own any of them…I’m just a simple man

I remember…When I ran across your land…
I remember when I kissed my grandmother’s hands…
But you ripped my away from her…From my home
you ripped my away from my heart…you ripped me away from my soul

I feel helpless…I feel low…
It’s hard to play along when I know…I have no role
I have become a slave.
After all the love I gave.

When I look at my country…people I want to save
When I look around me…people I need to change
It seems like a hard thing to do…
when the range of people is way bigger than you

Freedom…oh how much I’ve heard that word
Freedom…oh how this idea has become absurd
when God gave us life…
He warned us only he can take our lives…

Oh Syria…my home
Oh Syria…my all
Oh Syria…what did they hurt you for?
Oh Syria…I’m here…I won’t let them hurt you anymore…
I am Proud to be your son…

The Family That God Gave to Me

The Family That God Gave to Me I think about the family, that God gave to me... And think about where they'll spend eternity! I think about the good times, that we've had. And the trials we've faced... Both good and bad! God helped us to overcome adversity together! And proved his faithfulness... Today and forever! He showed us the Godly path, that we should follow... And promised to be with us! Today and tomorrow! He's proven how much he loves us! And how much that he cares for us! Thank you my lord, for all you do! Where would we be? If not for you? You've proven yourself over and over again! Thank you so much, for being our friend! By Jim Pemberton

Love

Oblivion mind,
wandering in thoughts.
Idiotic smile,
promises and hopes.
Hand in hand,
tumbling on slopes.
This is love

Running away from this world.
Warm bodies sliding in sheets,
to find another world.
Burning in cold flames.
No fear ... no shame ... no games
This is love

BABY

written 28th oct 2012

You were never seen by us, that privilege sadly was not for us 
  an extravagance we were overwhelmed by, the thought of your embrace  
The entire twelve weeks you were a joy to have known, even 'without' being seen 
 hearing about you're arrival, was a blessing at the time you were conceived
For life hadn't been easy and we had all asked God, we even plea'd 

We wait upon the day, you will finally meet us 
 having the honour to love and learn with you, saddly not for us
It brakes my heart as you part, you had already embeded love into my heart
 Just knowing we will now...forever be kept apart

God has other plans for your love that's so strong, blessing us from the start
 we continually pray, maybe he'll deside to let you stay around
But the intense pain of tears and loss, are constantly falling all around
 just let it be known, we all desperately wanted you to become part of us
 
We all will love you for eternity, you are now forever one of us,
 although it was only for a very slight second, it was better than never
You are from this day on, embedded into our hearts forever...
   the impact you have left 'unborn young one'' my beloved grandchild....
                                  "Angel" 2012

We Are There With You

You do not stand alone in your Battle
Your battle is our Battle
We may not be there in body
But we are there with you in Spirit

We are there in every beat of your Heart
In every whisper of the wind
In every thought and every touch
Every breath and every sound
We are there with you

You are wrapped in an Endless chain of Love
In every link we each send you a part of us
We send you some of our Strength
Some of our will to Fight
Some of our Courage
The most important of them all
We send you all of our Love

If you feel you need more
Just give that Endless chain a little tug
And we'll be there
Tug til you need us no more
Then we'll know you've gone Home

A Prayer For Strength To Be Yourself

It's hard doing something different.
It's difficult staying yourself.
In a world so accustomed to conformity,
It feels nearly impossible to be unique
As the one He created you to be.
How do we find the strength?
How do we find the courage?
How do we find the bravery?
Where do we defeat fear?
Well, He's hanging on The Cross
Giving life to you and me.
Thank You Jesus!
Let us not forget
With Christ,
Nothing is impossible,
For with God,
All things are possible!
Thank You Father!
Thank You!
We give our lives to You!
We are Yours!
Praise You forever
And forevermore!
In Jesus' Name,
We pray,
Amen!

Thirsty Feeling about Nature and love

A small poem “Thirsty Feeling about Nature and love” wrote by Mrs. Madhavi. Suyog. Pagare

 “Thirsty Feeling about Nature and love” 

Seating nearby valley side,
Astonished by seeing a nature's serene beauty. 
Amidst Grassy hills,
zigzagically mounted on the stupefying homeland.
Pristine Water, Sliding from the highest peak,
Flowing in its own way,
Wondering about its challenging destiny.
Love the way you are.
I owe you for myself!!

Wind's whispered, Cheering in its ain way.
Chanting of music beats,
Recited with a soothing intonation.
Birds speaking eloquently..
Dazzling due to marvellous rainbow..
Love the way you are,
I owe you for myself!!

Amazing and enamoured environment aroused my emotions,
Feeling Shy to express.
Missing my dream person,my Mr.Adam.
Versatile persona where are you?
Come here and hug me.
Fuel me up with spirit.
Gift me a smile.
Until forever fades away, Endure me.
Love the way you are..
I owe you for myself!!

Finished dropping stones in water.
Gladly waiting for your arrival.
Testing patience is all enough now.
Wanted to feel the gist of love.
Desire to fulfil wish with pure heart and soul.
Auspicious moments provoking to capture 
Love the way you are, 
I owe you for myself

Everything Will Be Alright

In His Arms, He holds me tight

Bravery

It's not a lesson to be taught
Or a skill to be acquired
It's the nudge to move forward
Open when the time is right
It's the spirit inside
God leading on the way
On the journey to discover
He is all you need
It's the courage to let go
Say yes instead of no
Reveal what you've been holding back
As Jesus takes the wheel
It's the realization that it doesn't matter
What others think of you
God leads you where you're meant to be
Just allow you to be you
It's the standing up to fear
Proclaiming "fear's not gonna win!"
The battle has been fought too long
Time to let the stalemate end
It's the inspiration you've been holding
For others and for yourself
The light we've been dimming
Rather than shining on His behalf
It's the spontaneity in the decision
To follow His call all the way
Discovering peace in being you
Wide open as the perfect creation you are
The world out there is brutal
But there's a Holy Man holding out His Hand
His bravery now is all we have
But His bravery of love is all we need
May God bless you!

What Does Marriage Mean to YOU

What Does Marriage Mean to YOU?

What all hear various definitions
 of what marriage means.
Not realizing the consequences
 this often brings!

There’s often a lack of commitment and faithfulness.
Many still looking for a true source of happiness!

This institution, that God set up as a husband and wife.
Needs to have his spirit,
 to guide our life!

It’s no wonder why, there’s many falling apart!
It’s causing heartache and many broken hearts!

No court in the land can wash away sin’s dark stain.
When adultery happens, things aren’t the same!

May we all seek to ask God
 to strengthen our home!
He’s there to help us!
 When we feel all alone!

We need the blood of Jesus to daily cleanse us!
He wants to do this!  Because he loves us!

Jesus remains committed, faithful and strong!
His word will teach us what’s right and wrong!

May we seek HIS guidance and council!
You’ll find, that he is always most helpful!

Please Jesus… Heal the broken families
 across this nation!
For only you can provide
 a much needed foundation!

Now I See

 I remember when i was younger
shortly after the age of six,
both my heart and spirit were broken
to the point that God could never fix.
 It was the first time i felt resentment
it was the first time i ever truelly cried,
It was the last time i ever spoke with God
it was on the day my father died.
 I felt God had wrongfully punished me
so i got down on my knees and prayed,
I begged God to " Please " bring back my dad
i promissed him i'd do anything he'd say.
 As the days went by; along with the weeks
so did the months just like the years,
slowly i excepted my fathers death 
but only after the shedding; of atleast a thousand tears.
 I learned early on in my childhood
that God does'nt answer heart felt prayers,
so never again would i look up to him
i could'nt speak to a God that did'nt care.
It was'nt until 34 years later
again i was down on bending knee's,
I looked to the sky and began to cry
please don't take my step dad away from me.
He taught me my morals and values
he's shown me how to be a man,
he instilled in me survival
like only a father truly can.
 It was right then and there at that moment
as a child;I saw how god answered my prayer,
he could not bring me back my dad
so he sent me another one;  one who twice as much has cared.
              I Love You Dad!

                frosty breath brings a warmth to your cheeks


                Anticipating that very first date 
                first glance the color lightens your way 
                
          
                as if Cupid decided this will be a day like no other
                celebrating in stars above Valentine days Forever

             It is the day God took hold of your heart and beat it for you ~

Aviated parachute

A short poetry of Parascending by Mrs.Madhavi.Suyog.Pagare

                                                Aviated parachute

 Parachute parachute you flying so high.
 Like an eagle you swing in the sky.
 Flourishingly Waving in an air.
 Your skill astonished me, Take me away !

 A play of lustrous rainbow colour.
 Cascaded by a Blushing rain.
 Sensing the rhythm, flower‘s crimsoned.
 Making me feel excited, Take me away !

 Inspiring me as you without wings swiftly aviate.
 Fortunately you have a flying glance at this amazed beauty of the earth.
 Give me one chance some another day.
 Move me away, Take me away !

 People will greet me, when myself Joe will be lime lighting in the sky.
 Viewing the artistic magnifying creativity, beautified by arduous earthborn 
 mortalizing persona‘s.
 my itchy feet, move me away, Take me away !

 screaking high, conveying regards to almighty and pray for celestial peace.
 Ohhh my spice jet please take me high.
 For the god‘s sake make me fly.
 Take me away or else I will die !

 By,
 Madhavi. Suyog. Pagare

Healing Can Only Happen When the Pain Is Gone

Healing Can Only happen,
 When the Pain is Gone!

Healing can only happen, when the pain
 and damage are gone!
It can only come about, when there’s
 no “lists” of wrongs!

People need to move ahead, and put all
 of the past behind them!
And seek God’s forgiveness, 
so his grace can find ‘em!

Too many carry a load of sorrow
 and grief that they can’t afford!
They need to bring everything to Jesus,
 and make him their LORD!

How can we experience healing,
 if the suffering is still there?
How will we ever be able to love others,
 and truly care?

May we all seek the kind of healing,
 that only Christ can bring!
May we allow him to remove
 all pain and suffering!

Jesus…  We need your healing now!  More than ever before!
It is your love that we must learn
 to treasure and adore!

Please come now and refresh us with your awesome love!
The sweetness of your Holy Spirit, is a gift from above!

Thank you God!  The pain is gone and the healing has come!
All praise, glory and honor to Jesus!
 God’s anointed son!

Satan HATES Everything That God LOVES


Satan HATES everything that God loves! He tries to counterfeit everything he does! He goes about as a lion, seeking whom to devour! He comes after us! But God alone has the power! Satan will twist God’s truth, into a corruptible lie! He has one mission! And that is to see you die! He wants to enslave you into deep addictions! And bring into your life, unneeded afflictions! He has one purpose, ambition and goal… Is to seek eternal damnation of your very soul! Jesus has come! His TRUTH can set you free! He has come that you may have life abundantly! Won’t you accept him? You can overcome! Through the shed blood, and power of God’s son! All glory to Jesus! All praise to HIM on high! He is your protector! He is El-Shaddai! Won’t you allow God’s love to bring you salvation? He offers it to right now! A heavenly invitation! God’s love is stronger than Satan! HE reigns supreme! He can help you to overcome, the lies the devil brings! By Jim Pemberton

Jesus Has Given So Much

What Shall I Do? For the One Who Gave So Much? What shall I do? For the one who gave so much? God reached down, and blessed me, with his touch! What shall I do? To my lord who bled and died?

For the many who’ve “lost their way?” Please dear Jesus… Give me the right words to say! What shall I do? As my way of, expressing my gratitude? May God help me to have a Christ’ like attitude! What will YOU do? In this time that God’s given to you? He’s here right now! And is patiently waiting for you! What will YOU do? Will you give God a chance ? Won’t you accept his salvation? Whatever the circumstance? What Christ will do… Is to do, what he does best! Simply give him your life! He’ll take care of the rest! What Christ has done…. Is to give life everlasting! Everything you need… Is right here, for the asking! By Jim Pemberton

REAL LOVE

Symphony is playing softly in the background.
He seems to be out more now.
He calls me regularly telling me his whereabouts.
Then he comes home after his workout.
Our relationship is on the up and up.
The heights we reach states we are a perfect couple.
     Our talk about the day brings a closeness.
     As the clock chimes late, we both sigh for a mental release.
We find each night of intimacy to be quite fulfilling.
This time we have together, we cherish.
Our wedding vows were written by each.
We rejoice.
We both play our part.
Our happiness is based on love and trust.

Porn No More

I've watched the war from behind closed doors;
Eyes too glued to close.
And now knowing what's in store, there's porn no more.
God's love is the only hope we know.
We are forgiven because of the love that is Jesus.
We are saved because of the love that is Jesus.
We give our lives to the Father for we are His children and He loves us.
We are loved!
No matter what we've done, we are loved!
Confess and ask for forgiveness;
This is such a beautiful gift!
Thank You God!
Thank You Jesus!
You forgive me!
You save me!
You change me!
I am changed!
I am new!
I am renewed!
I am forgiven!
I am saved!
I am changed!
There's porn no more
For God's hope is in store!
There's porn no more
For God's love is the hope of the world!

Move On

So you sinned?
Well, that's done and over with!
Keep it in the past
'Cause that's where it belongs.
But ask Jesus for forgiveness;
Don't dwell on mistakes any longer
Because He makes you new again:
Renewed.
Love is the outcome;
Forget the wrongs,
Love and move on!

Jesus Is the Best Thing That Happened to Me

Jesus Is the Best Thing That Happened to Me! Jesus is the best thing that happened to me! He loves me so much! It’s plain to see! Jesus has provided everything I need, to get tough! If it wasn’t for him… I don’t know what I’d do! Jesus has come, that I might life so abundantly! He’s given me all I need… Most assuredly! He does for me, what nothing in this world, could ever do! And completely understands, everything I go through! He brings his peace, hope and a blessed satisfaction! I can have fellowship with him! A “heavenly interaction!” He can restore what the enemy has stolen and taken away! He brings a true meaning! And has changed me today! I’m very thankful! For all that he’s provided! I’m going to live for him! This has already been decided! Thank you Jesus! My lord and my best friend! You’ve done so much for me! Over and over again! I praise your name! And want you to know… I’ll tell others of your goodness… Wherever I go! By Jim Pemberton

Jesus, Please Take Over Me

You've fallen down again;

You just scraped your knee,

Brush it off, my child;
Come and take my hand.
Let me help you up again;
You will be okay.

And I always will be.
I am by your side,

The Truth About Love

Love is not easy
Love is hard
Love is time apart
Trying not to drown
Praying to stay loyal
Holding on to lover's promises
Dreaming of reuniting
Crying tears of hurt and joy
Thinking of you constantly
Asking God for all the best
Love is difficult
Love is not easy
Love is hard
Love is faith
Love is hope
Love is trust
But love is beautiful
Oh, so beautiful
And love is worth it
Oh, so worth it
Love is in God's Hands
Love is protected
Love will come back again
Reunion again
For God is love
In Jesus' Name
We pray
Amen!

Defined by Love

The way you feel
about me doesn't
define me. You will
not cause me to
re-think my
priorities or
examine my virtues.
You may love, like,
hate or be neutral
towards me, that is
your prerogative. Of
course I would
prefer to be looked
upon as good,
inspiring, or any of
the positive human
characteristics we
know of... but it's
not essential to me
if I am not. I
respect your opinion
either way. More
importantly, I
respect mine. In my
eyes I AM worthy of
love, friendship,
forgiveness,
empathy,
understanding,
praise, blessings,
God's Love and love
for myself and I can
only hope for
"genuine" to precede
all of these words
and their meaning. I
understand that
these things I need
in my life, and they
are also the essence
of me, my gift to
those who really
know me and love me,
who truly desire to
be a part me, not
just tolerate me or
see an opportunity
for achievement at
my expense. I have
come this far on a
road paved of my
blood, sweat and
tears and the
admission of my
faults that made it
so. Many lessons I
learned were harsh
but I managed to
proceed in the right
direction and it was
I who suffered and
bowed my head with
shame and it was I
who rose, anew,
forgiving and
forgiven, humbled
and eager to forge
ahead. And the few
that were with me
all the while, will
forever be a part of
me, we are one and I
acknowledge I would
not be where I am,
who I am this day,
without you. And I
will always love
you. It is my
ambition and honor
to give to you the
same beautiful,
selfless gift. I
walk with God, in
good company of
those that chose to
walk with me in this
amazing life's
journey. And that,
is all I need to
know as to what
defines me, as a
person, a blessed,
cherished soul,
grateful for every
single moment.

I Know of An Old Fashioned Family


There’s a family I know,  that may seem old fashioned.
But they serve others from a heart of compassion!

They don’t have much in the scope
 of entertainment.
But they have each other,
 and much contentment.

They have a love for God that comes from within!
And are thankful to the Lord
 for being their friend!

They don’t get too involved with that the world brings.
They have each others love.  
They have everything!

This family has been an inspiration to others too!
By their giving hearts, in much of what they do!

This family has a commitment to serve God above.
And have asked Jesus to fill them with his love!

This may seem old fashioned, 
not to have a lot of things…
But they know their Lord 
and the love that he brings!

I’m thankful to know them and their Godly inspiration…
I extend to them a heart of thanks  and appreciation!

Please dear Lord, bless and keep them in your arms!
Be with them Jesus, and protect them from harm!

May the blessings of God keep 
flowing through them!
And may the peace and joy of God continue to be with them!

The Light

They praise me like a saint,
But I am a sinner;
They don't know the man they see.
I am an addict.
Broken eyes to pornography,
Only Jesus can set me free.
Only by His death on the cross
And the grace of His Father's love
Am I able to be set free.
With God as The Light,
The One and Only Light,
The Only Hope in sight,
Will I be set free.
I am free.

Forbidden Love

Forbidden Love

He does not love you else why would he stray
Do you still love him? Your body says No
Oh come to my arms for I love you so
Come to my arms and let us away.

Kiss me. Please touch me. Oh touch me just there.
Oh God! We must not. We cannot go there
God help me! To another I am bound
I have to be true, my conscience does hound

Do you still love him? Your body says No
Our spouses don’t love us, and I am now free
Come to my arms and let us away.
Come to my arms now and I’ll marry thee

Oh God! We must not. We cannot go there
I cannot for better for worse I said
I have to be true, my conscience does hound
Oh Love. Sometimes I have wished I were dead

Our spouses don’t love us, and I am now free
Come leave him, just leave him. Make yourself free
Come to my arms now and I’ll marry thee
Come to my arms and let us away

He cannot love you else why would he stray
Think! Not once not twice, God knows how many
Oh come to my arms for I love you so
Come to my arms and let us away.

Kiss me. Please touch me. Oh touch me just there.
I can and I must and we shall go there
Oh you are right so why was I stupid
I’ll come to your arms.  A cloud has been lifted

Do I still love him? My body says No
I’ll come to your arms for I love you so
He cannot love me else why would he stray
Think! Not once not twice God knows how many

The Soldiers Wife

I came back to tell you I love you so
I was appalled. Is it mine, this baby?
You broke my heart you said who knows? Maybe
How could you treat me thus? I’ll never know.

I had no choice. You were at war, away
You could be killed and might not come again
If you do, Only God knows if and when
I was so alone and yes I did stray

I could not help myself. I needed you
I could not bear it. I was so lonely
But you, I really I loved so truly
Despite my stray Oh God and I still do

You see I knew an awful lot of chaps
Without you I had to find some comfort
One of them, Oh dear he was so expert
You ask me is this baby yours? Perhaps

Just a sequence, another one nightstand
Can you forgive me please? I could have lied
To be true to you well I really tried
I know I’m wrong but can’t you understand

I raised my hand to strike, I in distress
But no I could not harm you, even you
Because I never stopped loving you
And why should I kill? The child is guiltless

You had no choice. I was at war, away
I could be killed and might not come again
If I did, Only God knows if and when
You were so alone and yes you did stray.

I shall forgive, not as as cold as ice
You say it might be mine but are you wrong?
I want to trust you well but is it on?
So many men, you’ve strayed not once but twice.

God Knows Why We Need HIM

God knows why we really need him!
He has put the enemy beneath him!

He knows that without him, we shall fail!
We’re like the blind following life’s trail!

He also knows, that his son bled and died…
That day on the cross, he was crucified!

He knows that his son arose from the dead!
He’s alive now!  And is our daily bread!

Do you know how much God loves you?
How much he wants fellowship with you?

Do you even think about for just one moment..
Of Christ’ love?  And his blood’s atonement?

He did all of this with one purpose in mind.
To offer his salvation to all of mankind!

No matter what you may say, 
or think of him…
It’s all of us, that need him!

Won’t you join with me,
 before God, in prayer?
Wherever we are…
  He’s already there!

Won’t you join with me, and receive him in?
To cleanse us, and take away our sin?

Won’t you begin today?  And feel his power?
You can be a new person! This very hour!

Built forever in each other's love.

EVERY BREATH IS FOR YOU

Jesus you keep me breathing
You are my reason for living
Every breath I take to you I’m giving
Thanks to you I’m still surviving
I have very subtle moments between the inhale and the exhale
But I won’t let stress provoke me to scream and yell
My every breath has become like the metronome that centers my gravity, it gives me a beat
That metronome I have is giving my spirit rhythm now I’m moving my feet
In my breathing I sometimes find internal rhythm
Lately my vision has given my pen wisdom
So every word I write from my insightful vision I will inspire
From the words I recite that I write, to uplift you and spark that fire
Let me catch my breath because I have so much to say
I cannot seem to stop because I keep penning it every day
Every breath I take is very valuable to me
When I breathe my body feels free
So every breath I take is words that I say
But with those words I rather say I love you to Jesus when I pray

"JESUS I LOVE YOU SO MUCH FOR ALWAYS LOVING ME!"

Who Will STAND UP For Jesus


I've heard of those who say they're "happy and gay." Where are those who proclaim; "Jesus is the only Way?" I've heard of many who discuss creation vs. evolution. Where are those who proclaim Jesus is the solution? I've heard of many who chose an "alternate lifestyle." Where are those...who for Jesus... will go "the extra mile?" There are those who say; "Jesus isn't real!" Where are those who'll confess HIM with a passion and a zeal? There’s so many who sit in their church's pew. Where are those... Whom to Christ… Will say; ‘I LOVE YOU!” There’s too many who are on their way to hell. Where are those who truly love Jesus? Can you tell??? I know of a redeeming savior's mercy and grace. His love has been extended to the human race. Jesus speaks a loving call and merciful plea... He says; "take up your cross and follow me!" Jesus brings true gladness and overflowing joy! This is freely offered to every man, woman, girl and boy! NOW is the day of salvation & the accepted time! Christ can change us! And renew our mind! I know that very soon.. Jesus is coming again! Where are those who desire to be cleansed within? I know that an abundant life is what Jesus will freely give! Where one can find eternal life! And a true meaning to live! By Jim Pemberton

 Let the whole earth proclaim!
The majestic wonder and glory,
 there is in HIS name!

Jesus is alive today!  He reigns in resurrection power!

Through the Years

I know I had to let you go
To be with God above
But one thing I will always have, forever 
Is your love
It’s been there through our ups and downs
Through smiles and laughter too
Through good and bad, through tears and fears
Our love remained so true
Through the years when things were tough
Or anything went wrong
Together we would work it out
Together we stood strong
Through the years you cared for me
You loved me every day
Through the years when I got lost
You helped me find my way 
Through the years when I was sad
You held me while I cried
Through the years, you’ve been my love
My strength, my rock, my guide
Sometimes when I'm all alone
I close my eyes and pray
That God will give you back to me
Just for one more day
So I could tell you one more time
How much I love you so
So I could hold you just once more
Before I let you go
I miss you every morning
Every night and every day
I’d give all my tomorrows
For just one more yesterday
I always knew how blessed I was
To have you in my life
Always I will wear your ring
I’ll always be your wife
I know I must be strong now 
For this mountain I must climb
To face a world without the man
Who always will be mine
I know you’re always here with us 
Our children feel it too
And no one else will ever have 
The love we gave to you
I know you're up in Heaven 
And to God, you now belong
But part of you stays here..
For in your sons…you still live on..

Christ Stepped Down From His Heavenly Throne

Christ Stepped Down From His Heavenly Throne! Christ stepped down, from his heavenly throne. He came to earth… For 33 years, he called it his home! His mission had one purpose and desire in mind! He was to one day, be a sacrifice for mankind! He taught and gave us his words, powerfully spoken! He knew that one day, his body would be broken! He desired that all, would one day, come to know him! Because of his resurrection, all can receive him! He’s alive today! And reigns from heaven above! And desires to touch us, with his endless love! Won’t you humbly come, and accept what he’s given? And experience the power, of being forgiven! This can be your moment! This can be YOUR day! He loves you much more, than words can say! All honor and praise, to Christ Jesus, our king! You are our righteousness! Our everything! By Jim Pemberton

God of My Heart

O dearest of dears, the god of my heart, flee.
Yesterday thou withstand with me
And tomorrow I shall wait for the time to fetch
My empty secret thoughts, no one knows how I love you so much.
I plead, O god of distress during sunrise,
To desist the punishment you befell on my frailty;
Dissolve the clouds of tears present in my skies
And unchain the pain; hasten, O god of uncertainty!
Worry not for I shall live but with pieces shattered
Like death, someday but already mourned.

Love the Lord Your God

Love the Lord Your God!

 “Love your God with your 
body, soul and mind.”
The is the greatest
 commandment you’ll find.

“Love your neighbor as yourself,”
 is number two .
These commands are what
 is asked of you.

The law, the prophets hang
 on these commands.
God loves you!  He makes no
 harsh demands.

His death on the cross—
the life that he gave.
He wants your love for him and
 your neighbor, in how you behave.

He created you to have a
 special relationship with him!
He desires your fellowship,
 so you can know him!

Reading his word, will give you
 wisdom in every task...
This will give you a desire to 
obey him that will last.

Confess all sins to him now!
Your life… He will restore!
Living for Jesus…  Who could ask
 for anything more?

Behold the Love of God


I’ll never fully understand, 
or comprehend.
The power of God’s love
in the cleansing of sin!

From where I was,
 to where I am today…
I appreciate God!
 More than words can say.

I shall give him 
 glory and praise!
And seek to worship him!
  All of my days!

He’s more precious to me
 than ever before!
His precious love…
I need so much more!

His marvelous love,
 shall bless me to the end…
For this, I say, “Hallelujah!” 
And “Amen!”

GOD HELPS ME

I can do anything threw Christ , by his stripes i am healed
His shield protect me , and if they don't yield when they see my shield they don't respect me
I would give someone the shirt off my back 
All i want is the truth off your tongue 
i was Running my  mouth telling lies until thy
tripped over a tree stump in the garden of Eden
Looked away from the fruit and started praying & grieving
Demons in disguised we slaved for these men
Just to escape my fears and insecurities i'm going to build 2 underground railroads
Put my pride on my sail boat 
and go who the hell knows
You don't know your strength when your facing a lion
You didn't realize you where David when you seen that your obstacles where giants
JUST DON'T STOP TRYING
Am i crazy for dreaming
Its either keep my day job or be paid to become a demon 
I kept my day job day dreaming 
Just giving god his glory why Lucifer stay scheming
My equilibrium aint even 
God is on my team so I let the messiah take a peek in , 
and he told me keep moving forward like i'm putting pressure on the defense  
let the light from justice shine in my face i see a brighter future
I can control my anger now like lighter fluid 
You ask me how i do it 
I had a pilot by the name of jesus christ and he guides me threw it

Refusing To Listen

Everyone telling me where to go:
Turn left,
Turn right.
I don't even know who to listen to anymore;

And tell me where to go
And show me what to do
Because Your voice is drowning out in the madness
Or maybe I am just refusing to listen.

Do We Share the Hope Christ Gave to Us

Do We Share the Hope Christ Gave Us?

The Bible says to “give reason of the hope within us.”
But too often, we drag a lot of weight beneath us!

Christ wants us freely to share his hope with others!
We need to willingly share his love with another!

How will others have hope?  Unless we share it?
Christ told us to pick up our cross, and bear it!

We need to be his example, in the world’s madness!
We need to do it from a heart of joy and gladness!

We needn’t be ashamed of the work God has done!
All glory and honor should be given to his son!

He gives joy unspeakable!  
And the half hasn’t been told!
May we be an expression of his joy!  
Both young an old!

Let’s bless the lord! In what we say and how we live!
He’s patient with us!  And so willing to forgive!

Please come Lord Jesus!  And take self pride away!
Bring your holy conviction, 
and give us the words to say!

This may seem odd!  And to many…  Old fashioned!
Stir our hearts to share 
with a godly compassion!

Please come Jesus! And stir our hearts,
 from within!
That we would love to tell others about YOU! 
Our best friend!

I Owe Everything to Jesus

I Owe Everything to Jesus!

Jesus’ death paid it all!
What have I given in return?
His death on the cross… 
Was from love and concern!

His life for mine… On Calvary… 
 Has been paid!
His offer of eternal life,
 has been made!

Through God’s word,
 he’s been talking!
And stands at my hearts door… 
 knocking!

I’ll invite him in?  As my guest!
Then, your life will be totally blessed!

He brings health and
 healing to my bones!
He can bring his love to
 my family and home!

“Come unto me.” Is the 
  the master’s call.
Living for him
 is worth it all!

He’s here right now! 
 In this very place…
And extends his 
mercy and grace.

I accept and receive him today!
I love him more, than words can say!

Transition (for A. I. Smalling on her 18th birthday).

While your mother slept I held you
Thanking God for her, and for you
And thanking God again and again 
For everything make joy from pain.
                      ...
My darling dearest daughter dream
If you could walk my linger stream
Awhile, and understand my ripple now
An old man under thoughts' full bough.
                      ...
Seeds become flowers and flowers bring
Fruits again after the fair of fiddled spring
Dark clouds bring silver showers of rain
And swallows drunk with joy weave insane
Pictures on the eye. I watched you grow
Out of the mud of my nurturing, and I glow
In the shade with butterflies brimming me
With a rainbow of memories, O little tree!

You are transformed into a prayer today
A beautiful thing, God's purpose on display
And I love you more than you can tell
The best pat of us must defy all our hell
And cross that bridge on which you stand
Right now, a young woman with some sand
Still in the eyes of desire, but fruit laden
And longing to know the mysteries of heaven.

You are my chrysalis, and hope's budding wing
I can no longer hold you, I let go for you to sing
Because I cannot hold again this transition
This marvelous change edging my premonition.
You are the change that makes me beautiful
The love that fruiting in me feels so wonderful
And the butterflies and swallows here today
Celebrate your transition and your birthday.      
                        ...
So here under the bough of thoughts I bring
My knees to prayer suckling the sweet spring
Returning to the map that gave me direction
Through the years, and nurtured my affection.
                         ...
O we tumbled words and passion making truth
Bound by self the old man and the bright youth
And swallows weave their patterns here still
And I leave you joyously to God's sweet will

Tears Running Down Your Face

I saw you cry today,
I can't tell you that I feel your pain,
You're his daughter,
this time God couldn't get any wronger,
he shouldn't ever taken your father,
I swear that in my head my screams couldn't get any louder,
I screamed to God and reminded him of his daughters,
but mostly of you, because i knew you would take the news harder.

I couldn't even give you a hug and tell you that everything's going to be okay,
I don't know what happened I just froze when I saw tears running down your face,
I know you're going to miss him every single day,
I just want you to know that I love you and that I'm always here for when ever you need a 
friend,
I've been trying to make you laugh today,
I've done it a couple of times and that makes me feel great,
because for two seconds I took the pain away,
but I know that your pain will always stay,
I'm sorry I know nothing will ever take away that pain,
but you got friends and family that will help you along the way.

Temptaion will always make me stronger in Jesus name.
I know that God will always be there for me.
That will never change

Stay stong.Keep fighting. Never give up.
Jesus is right there for you. I love you and God does too.

Goodbye Mom

As i sit here writing my goodbye to you the tears are building in my eyes. 
The last eight months of your life here on earth was hell for you. 
Now god has taken you home with him. 
We have gotten closer then we ever was. 
But seein you in so much agony it was like you were a prisioner in your own body. 
Oh how you wanted to get up  and go  where just any where would have been great for you. 
Mom i love you with all my heart and soul. 
You gave me life only a mother could give. 
There were good times and lord knows there were bad times too. 
But we  all loved each other and it got us through the tough struggles that life  has placed upon us. 
we have all mended our differences and tried to give the care you so needed the last few  months of your life. 
I am going to miss calling you. 
Even when we disagreed you were always there. 
Mom i will go on  and i will meet  you there  someday when it is my time. 
But until then i will be thinking of you each and every  day. of my life. 
OH GOD I AM GOING TO MISS YOU SO1 
LOVE YOU ALWAYS

RIP

I thought you were immortal, 
a childish fantasy,
But when god took you to heaven,
he also took a part of me.

You watched me grow up, 
I watched you grow old,
i loved being at your house, 
and listening to the stories that you told.

You were a wise woman, 
someone non-judgmental and sweet, 
until some one called you granny,
then someone was going to get their butt beat! 

I miss our long talks,
staying up late into the night, 
all the "unwanted" advice, 
was somehow always right. 

I know you are proud of me, 
but i wish i had listened more, 
you tried to help me so much, 
and now my heart is sore.


I wish I could have been there, 
to spend a little more time with you, 
But i love you grandma, 
and i know you love me too.


I thought you were immortal, 
a childish fantasy,
But even though god took you to heaven, 
I know somehow, your still here with me.

but yet she still chooses me above all the rest.
all i ask is please let this be I love you Brittany,

TOGETHER: Waking

Utter silence fills our room
except for your breathing.
I can’t tell if you’re in a dream
or just deeply asleep,
but I love your sounds
in my ears
and feeling your body
next to mine.

Do I love you too much?
Is that why I’m pinching myself
to make sure I’m not stuck
in a dream world of my own creation.

You don’t think too highly
of yourself and would be saying
“You are silly.”
When it comes to how I feel
about feeling you next to me.

I want to live in this moment forever
knowing you are ok and here,
not 60 miles away
which always felt like 600.

The first ray of sunlight
slips through the blinds
and I make too much noise
so that your sleepy eyes now
crack open enough
to stare me down
as I say “Good morning my lady.”

You stretch, yawn and move around
such that your body awakens mine more
and reminds me of the sweet loving
we shared last night.

But, I’ll be good and let you
awaken fully before
I attack you with hugs and kisses,
please God never let me get tired of those –
don’t want to break my promise of endless affection.
As you roll over onto me
your beautiful smile lifts my spirit,
your eyes light mine with their twinkling
and your arms curve around me
in our first big hug of the day.

Soon our legs are locked
followed by tender kisses
and loving stares
at each other,
and we realize
that waking up together
is still amazing,
still a blessing
and still wonderful.

We talk a bit
about yesterday
and plan today
then take deep breaths
part our bodies 
and continue
this new day
that God has granted us
together.

My valentine

If I had never meet you
I wouldn’t know what true love meant
I didn’t know the meaning of happiness
For my lonely life was just content

Never knowing the magic of romance
And to hear some one say I love you
To me these were just illusions
A dream that will never come true

Some times on a cold lonely night
My only companion was bottle of wine
Saying god did you make a love for me?
To love and hold and call my valentine

And just when I was about to wake up
And accept that the hope of love is gone
And I was going to bury my heart
In a deep forest at the break of dawn

Then that same night by under the full moon
We meet by chance and our hearts agree
I was looking for you all my life
And you had also been looking for me

God do have ways of working
And who god bless no one can take apart
He bring us both together
Ands planted love so deep in each others hearts

And the day you said yes to marry me
The heaven opens and the sun shines
For one of its angels are standing before me
As my wife and my lovely valentines

The beautiful sound of your voice
The way you smiles, the way you look at me
The curves and every details of your face
My love becomes deeper than big blue sea

And when you hug me in close your arms
There’s nothing else in the worlds matter tonight
And all the stars in the skies shine on us
Making our future forever be so bright

To sleep and wake next to you every morning
Spending time in the kitchen cooking, baking cakes
And taking long drives with picnic baskets
Sitting a under a tree over looking the lakes

Going to the parks playing basket ball
Then having tofu for dinner with red wine
Telling each other I love you forever
My love, my life, my wife, my valentine

You'll Find True Enjoyment In Jesus


You’ll Find True Enjoyment In Jesus! Are you looking for something to give “fulfillment?” Have you tried many types of “enjoyment?” Perhaps you’ve tried to do something “cool?” Even if it meant, “bending the rules?” But you don’t have the satisfaction you crave? No matter how much of yourself, you gave? The fulfillment you want. You won’t find it No matter how many times, you’ve tried it! Only Jesus can bring the answers you seek! He can bring true love, each day of the week! He alone can bring faithfulness and commitment! And bring to your soul, an eternal enrichment! Won’t you give him your life? And allow him to lead? Only he knows and can meet your every need! Jesus is the answer to everything! And much more! He truly is what life is about, and was meant for! He is and shall always be your very best friend!

God's Eternity

" God's Eternity "

We now must share our angel, with God up in Heaven above
he was calling out your precious name, he wants you there to love
our young child on life support, with a faint glimmer of hope
we place our faith in you dear God, please won’t you help us cope
its too early to let our angel go, and it hurts so much inside
we pray dear God please help us now, these heartfelt tears we’ve cried.
We place our faith in your great hands, to help us get through each day
God was calling your precious name, he wants you there to say
“ I love you my precious child, you have lived a meaningful life
all the loved ones that you leave behind, I’ll help to remove their strife
I’ve not called them here with you and me, they still have some things to do
one important thing that you need to know, they will be here with you.
Your mom and dad have so much love, they shared it through your birth
their wonderful faith and heartfelt love, I still need them upon the earth
Your mom and dad God bless their soul, they watched their family grow
I need them on earth to share my love, this is something you need to know
the precious lives that you have touched, through your parent’s warm love
have all been noted in your families book, by dear God above.
I was calling out your precious name, I want you here with me
I promise to you my precious child, God’s Eternity!!!!!”

LOOKING INTO GOD EYES

Father God, as I look into your beautiful eyes
They are so brilliant, loving, kind, peaceful, faithful, and forever wise
There in your pupils are so many shades of blue
My heart and soul aches for you
I see the world begging and pleading for your return
I also see the hands of times turn
Lost souls and forgiving spirits craving your attention
Through your eyes I marvel and I can’t grasp the beauty of all your creations
As my tears roll down my face, that stare you give me such an inviting embrace
No one in ten gazillion life times can ever take your place
Unconsciously, I feel all my worries, pains, grief, stress, and anxiety suddenly leave me
I never felt so safe and free
Joy just came over my whole body, mind, and spirit
That look into your eyes I not only see it, I feel it, I can also hear it
As I drop to my knees to give you praise
Father God I love you forever and all of my days


The eye through which I see God is the same eye through which God sees me; my eye and God's eye are one eye, one seeing, one knowing, one love.

Now my little angel is in GOD's place and I know in heaven is where you'll always be safe.
Throughout all the grief, it's still hard for mommy to believe.
I guess GOD took you for a reason, but it hurt me to know that I can't feel your pain or even hear your cry or even see the tears in your beautiful eyes.
I just want I got a chance to tell you how much I love you and that mommy will always be there, but I wasn't there.
It was like you was crying out for me, but I couldn't reach you and mommy's really sorry for what you had to go through.
Day and night I cry and I'll always cry because you are the precious baby I never got a chance to hold, kiss, or comfort, but mommy have to build the strength to let you go, but until then I'm torn because I didn't get a chance to see you born. You'll be in mommy's heart and me and daddy will always love you. GOD has you now and don't worry because you'll always have me and daddy's love.

                              For my child whose with GOD

Please Take A Moment For Jesus

Please Take A Moment For Jesus!

Please take a moment for Jesus!  Why not today?
Isn’t this a good time to kneel down and pray?

In this “crazy and busy” world, that we all live in…
Isn’t this a good time to honor Jesus and thank him?

Thanking him for his all that he’s done for us!
He’s given us his life, because he loves us!

Many have the time to make a lot of choices.
So much to choose from...  
And many voices!

Spending time with HIM, is a good way to live!
He has so much to offer! And much to give!

I think if we could listen to HIS voice, and be stirred…
We would realize how important it is,
 to read his word!

Living by his word, and the truth that can be applied…
Will help you to know, that your needs, 
Jesus has supplied!

Won’t you take a moment, to spend alone with him?
Simply reach out him now,
 and let your heart touch him!

You can be blessed, encouraged,
 and be made whole!
HE wants to strengthen
 and bring love to your soul!

He patiently waits for you to call out to his name!
By the blood of Jesus…  
You can be forever CHANGED!

Fill This Bed

Will you be the one to fill this bed?
Lay down at night and rest your head?
Stay here forever and love me the same?
Even through the darkness, even through the pain?
Take my hand in the middle of the night?
Calm my waters in the depth of the fright?
Make me laugh with your beautiful snoring?
Wake me up with I love you's in the perfect good morning?
Be my soulmate in a love unexplainable?
A gift from Heaven for others unimaginable?
A partner for God in prayer we will serve in unity?
As you touch my heart for eternity you love me.

Jesus Love Is Overflowing

Jesus love is abundant 
and overflowing!
His love, in my life,
 I’m now enjoying!

Jesus’ abundance of mercy is sweet!
It’s changed me!  I’m now complete!

Jesus’ blood has washed away 
sin’s stains
It set me free! 
 And broke life’s chains!

Jesus has brought his awesome
 redemption!
He loves me so much! 
 There’s no exception!

Jesus can do the same for you! 
 Won’t you let him!
Remember he cares for you!  
Don’t forget him!

Thanks be to Jesus!  
And his majesty displayed.
Through him, a way to heaven,
 has been made!

Outstanding Mother by Kenny Davis

“Outstanding Mother” by Kenny Davis

Outstanding Mother
A woman like no other
Who is willing to give hugs and snuggles
To help you pull through the struggles

An Outstanding Mom
So gentle and calm
Who makes all the pain go away
With just a touch of her palm

An Outstanding Mama
Through all the trauma
Is willing to love and guide me
Despite all of my drama

No matter what I call her
She is still a mother to me
She is still outstanding
Beyond understanding

Mother, dear Mother
Speaking for me
Thank you for giving me wings
And setting me free

Wings to fly
And the strength to survive on my own
For keeping a means of sanctuary
One I can gladly call home

You are an angel in your child’s eyes
That’s why you don’t use your arms when we hug
You use the feathery wings God gave you
So warm and snug

You tightly wrap them around me
And gently wipe away all the tears
With the overwhelming blanket of security
You do away with all my fears.

For all you’ve done for me, I know of your love
And I love you too
It’s so obvious God loves me
Because he richly blessed me with a mother like you.

The Road

I see the hurt and the pain you feel inside.
Your eyes are opening as each day passes by!
The thing about God is that He makes no mistakes.
You must take care of yourself, do everything it takes!!
You are a child of God and He loves you so much.
Sometimes the roads are rocky, and they tend to be tough!
The Lord is here to guide you through.
You're one of my angels, and I love you too.
So when things seem to be more than you can bare,
Lift up your voice and raise your hands in the air!!!
Give it All to the Man up above.
When it all boils down, He's our Real True Love!!!!!

tiny baby

Tiny flutters like tiny unfelt yet kicks
Little baby, a sweet mother’s bliss
A mother who can't wait to give the tiny you
Hugs and lots of kisses too 

I dreamed last night of your tiny face
An angel indeed, made from God’s sweet embrace 
A miracle that has come about 
Ment as a gift from God too daddy and I no doubt

When everyone else thought it would never happen again
When our tear drops were falling like rain 
We got the joyful news that you were due to come 
I could feel my heart beating in my ears like a drum

I know that somehow you can now hear
Oh, what a thrill you will bring us here!
Now hush my baby, it’s time to rest
Inside my womb, your own calm nest

May God help me to keep you safe
And always keep you strong, I pray
I loved you before you were even conceived 
And I love you more now that I have you

love your mommy

Just Loving Jesus

Just Loving Jesus!

Just loving Jesus...
Have you missed out?
On what being child of God is all about!
Some think true love comes from
laughter or a “funny feeling.”
Getting involved with things not of God,
but are appealing.

Twisting the true joy of God,
with the empty joy of man.
Forgetting what God’s word says—
failing to understand.
LISTEN! Godly love is not based on
an “overnight experience.”
Nor based on what may have a
“Godly appearance.”

It comes from falling in love with
Jesus and his precious word too.
Simply enjoying Jesus, and his life
that he gave for you!
Don’t forget… Everything you have…
from Jesus it came.
Be careful not to reject 
the love in his precious name!

The Transition

The darkness was my Savior,
The blood was my wine,
Wings chained down and painted
Black, I couldn't fly.

I couldn't breathe, a hollowness
Lay in my chest, cold, unfeeling, I
Lashed out in anger, wanting to feel
More than pain.

Scars shadowed my heart and
Blinded my eyes, thought it didn't matter
So I reached for the blade and
Scarred my wrist.

But still I kept on, still I held
Hope there was more than this,
More than the pain of the Past and Present,
Still I searched.

My heart finally broke one too
Many times and I was about to
Give up on finding real Love,
When I met you.

I spent my life praying to a God
Who showed me the waiting and 
The tears were worth it, the heartbreaks 
And disappointments.

I've been afraid, not because I'm
Afraid you're like the others but afraid
I won't be good enough, afraid this is a dream and
I'll wake without you.

But I don't want to be afraid anymore,
So unlock my chains and help me fly,
I'll carry you with me, I promise you, I'm here to stay,
Always and Forever...

Jesus Is Concerned About YOU

	
Jesus Is Concerned About YOU!


 Jesus is concerned about YOU!
The struggles you face…
 the trials you’re
 going through!

When trials in 
life begin to arise…
Think about the love 
in your father’s eyes.

With every trial…  
Jesus makes a way to escape
He’s here to help you!
Never a moment too late!

When life’s problems seem so
 difficult to solve…
Give them to him!
He’s there to resolve…

The future may be uncertain
 in the days ahead.
But Jesus is the river of life…
And your daily bread!

Falling For You

Falling for You
I made a wish to God one night
I prayed with all my may, I wished with all my might
That my first falling star to be seen with whomever
Would be the “one” I was to be with forever
That night came with you and I couldn’t believe  
Surely God was mistaken on what we agreed
For that night whom I was with was my best friend
Could this really someday be my husband?
Never again did I see falling stars around anyone but you
Surely by the third one I knew, god was trying to give me a clue
I started this relationship to see if it was worthwhile
And can’t believe here today we’re walking down the aisle 
All we have now starting from a wish and a prayer
All our love we have for each other cannot compare
Forever and always we’ll be together, I love you with all of my heart
I’ll prove that to you today as we say… till death do us part.
Thank you god for hearing my prayers and coming through
I’ll vow my love to him forever and say I Do.

Love on the Cross

I
See
The cross.
Does it hurt?
What brought you up there?
A sweet and effervescent scent?
Life’s reverie with a beloved full of roses?
Or you were urged with that passion to be the knight of a damsel in severe 
distress?  

I
See 
Jesus.
God's fierce love.
Like a dove fighting,
Beak and wings, to the cross' extent. 
You were not fired with rapture of  fleeting emotions, 
Nor swayed by tempting gains and earthy fame, but of pure sweet love like 
honey from the comb! 

I
See
True love.
The greatest!
It is redemptive;
Merciful like a mother's love,
That flows into the soul and makes all things good and sweet;
That gazes at the lowly as lovely, and knows that the poor one as worthy of 
love. 

You
Have
Loved Me!
Do I, too!
I may mouth of love,
I may muse on it every day,
If I will not give my life to the unlovable – 
It is not love!! But then, the cross brings hope that love will tame the lion in 
my heart.

The Love I Have For You

Love doesn't describe what I feel for You
Its deeper than the deepest ocean
stronger than any metal
what can come between us "nothing"
Not money, Not family, noting that revolves around me
so how can i let you go
see you float in the wind as it blows
my love refuses to hurt you
my heart cant stand to see you cry
You deserve so much better than me
someone that will make you complete
Even though I love you like God loves us
I cant let you stay to go through pain
It seems like rain only comes from my dark clouds
And I have no umbrella to keep you safe
And when you go you will take my heart 
And I prey to God that my soul doesn't follow
I love you so much, that I just want to see you happy
Even if that means living your life without me

What Will You Do With God's Love


What will you do with the love
 that God has given?
His love can transform
and change how you're livin'!

What will you do with the sacrifice
 that Jesus paid?
A way to everlasting life,
 has already been made!

Who will you listen to, when the roll
 is called "up yonder?"
With God's will, you will
 stumble and wander!

When will you spend some time
 with the Lord in prayer?
He'll always listen to you!
 And is always there!

Why not come to Jesus?
 You can know him tonight!
He'll bring hope and make
 the darkness bright!

Why not give Jesus a chance
 in your life this hour?
So you too can experience
 his resurrection power!

HALLELUJAH I'm On the Winning Side

Hallelujah!  I’m on
 the winning side!
Jesus is victorious!  
And pushed back the evil tide!

Hallelujah!  Jesus has given
 me an assurance.
Living for him…  Is the best
 “life insurance!”

HIS policy is FREE!  It asks 
that you serve him!
Won’t you come?  
And take time to know him?

His eternal insurance is life
 that’s everlasting!
“Come follow me!” 
 Is what he’s asking!

I’m thankful to know of the choice
 I’ve made!
A way to eternity, through Christ,
 has been paid!

Faith Moves

cherishing the days i've learned to say,
it doesn't matter what you say or do i love you anyway,
we all say prove your love...prove it! prove it!,
while we ignore the heart unless we can move it,
show me, and if you can't it must not be real,
a misconception of the heart that needs proof to reveal,
some can run a race with full strength and full speed,
while others were meant to be on the side to plant the seed,
just because you cannot see, doesn't mean their hearts not in action,
but because our society needs proof to believe...this is their reaction,
behind closed doors, their service is mindful, a heart only God can see,
their heartful prayers resignate to the throne of God with tears of love and compassionate pleas,
an excuse not to move,,,,,No! not at all,
in HIS season, we answer HIS call,
HIS que, HIS spirit riding us through,
all of a sudden, HIS wind passes through,
with faith to believe,,,this is no dream,
the love of HIS faith is a reality!

God has a reason for everything

When we cry because we’re hurt,                                                                         
there’s a reason for that.                                                                                            
When life is moving too fast and we don’t get to say I love you                                
to the people we love,                                                                                           
there’s a reason for that. 
                                                                                                                                     
We cannot be mad at God for things that happened,                                                         
left undone or don’t exist.                                                                                             
God moves with us, he loves us                                                                                
and that’s just the beginning of the list. 
                                                                                                                                
When we lose a loved one,                                                                                     
when faith disappears on us                                                                                     
and we find there is no more hope for anything.                                                       
Just remember to trust in God

An Empty Heart Full of Hope

I've found someone I can't live without
Pitiful, I've only discovered that after they've left 
Now I can't live. 
I've descended on both knees 
A face flooded with tears, 
Which bled from my broken insides 
To repent, to pray to a God 
In which I did not believe existed 
A God in which I only turned to 
In times of need
A God in which I believed would avail me, even if I wasn't the most 
Faithful of followers 
I believed if I was baptized in his name, he'd perform divine miracles 
Before my eyes, even if I did not practice his teachings 
Am I selfish for doing so? 

Set aside my failure to practice 
My own congenital beliefs, 
My heart still aches 
My body, still empty 
Legs shaking, weak from the lack 
Of his presence 
He is my pillar 
He is my wings 
He arises me above all that is evil 
He makes me feel whole, 
He makes me feel divine, 
He makes me feel like I can climb mountains, 
Slay the devil, himself 
I am a fool for this man 
He is my King 
And I would walk through hellfire to be able to hold him once more...

My Friend

A friend looks around the room.
She's not here again,
She said she would be well soon,
How's Little Ginger One- my little friend?

          I'm okay...well, I'm not.
          What I am doing,
          Where I am going
          I know not.

          I'm failing my subjects,
          Feeling shunned by my tutors.
          I try and be happy- Look, laters!
          Today I hide under my blankets.

          I bet you wish that you'd never asked.
No. I'm very glad that I asked.

Remember that God has a plan for you,
No matter how bad it seems.
Remember, too, that we are here for you,
Through all, wether nightmare or dreams.

Amazing people in this world,
Did pants at school and all.
You're an amazing, unique, special person,
And worrying won't help you at all.

With God on your side, who can stand against you?
          No one can! Oh my friend, thank you!

          What a great feat it is for any,
          To cause some one to weep and cry,
          Yet cause them to laugh laughter not dry,
          My friend, know that I love you plenty.

Bookending Part One:

I feel that I have bared the darker moments of my life of late, and it is time to redress the balance 
a little, I am in truth, like most, a complex creature capable of deep dark moments and thoughts, I 
am also a cheeky little sod !

But there is another side of me too, the side of me that sees beauty in many things, from my 
children, to a cloud in the sky

So as a kind of Bookend to I Loved You


Bookending:

Wrapped in your arms and listening to your breathing
Lying on your sweet breasts feeling them move under my head as you breathe 
With my arm across your belly and my hand curled around your hip
I can feel your breath in my hair as you talk 
I will wallow in the wonderful moment of being with you 
Feeling each other just being there
Listening to your voice in your chest and in my ears

Running my hand gently across your stomach and tracing every sweet contour
Moving it lower and just brushing the edges of your hair 
Sliding my hand gently into the sweet little crease between groin and thigh
And still the aroma of our lovemaking fills the air 
Feeling the warmth of you on my fingers the tenderness of your touch
Kissing you gently where my head rests on your chest

Feeling your warm breasts give as my head turns to let me kiss your sweet soft skin

Your leg on mine touching all the way along our bodies
Oh dear god to feel you on every inch of me
To feel your warmth
Your love

Oh dear god to feel you on every inch of me
To feel your soft skin on my face
On my lips
On my tongue

Your warmth and tenderness and caring and sweetness
I want you now, to be safe where you belong in my arms, 
In my bed curled up warm and comfortable

With my hands on you stroking and caressing your tired body 
And relaxing you into peace and calm
Where you and I can love each other without hurry

Knowing that when we are done we can begin again 
With our deep seated desire for each other

Just a touch here, 
A caress there
A breathy kiss here
A whispered I love you against your skin
Even though tired, making love in such a gentle way with each other

Just to be joined
Just to be as one
Just to share each other

To surrender wholeheartedly to the joy of being in each others arms
To give it all up
No more walls
No more barriers to hide behind

To be completely free and open
To let you deep inside of me to where the real “I” is
To let you wrap the real “I” in your love and nurture it

to be continued

your love is something I've never known before, with passion, it grows each day

 facing facts, you've made me who I am,

A Trampled Life

Do you hear your bones break, feel your mangled heart? The desire for pain has ripped you apart Your soul has been tortured, bludgeoned and maimed Those dark eyes cannot disguise the heartache and pain You are filled with hatred, greed, and insidious lies Manipulated, you thought yourself to be wise A prisoner with shackles of anger and fear You lost every thing your heart once held dear Tempted by poison cloaked as nectar so sweet The body craves more while your essence depletes An evil captor stole your heart, taking it far from me You know how I love you but you are too blind to see Satan has gripped you in a tormenting vise Your soul suffocates yet he still does entice The wicked disguises as an angel winged with light While he keeps you in bondage and steals your sight Death on the horizon, you cannot get enough You are willing to bury yourself under the rough Deeper and deeper, trampled into the heavy earth Like an elephant stampeding, you feel crushed with no worth Yes, your soul has been trampled by Satan's cloven hoof But to God who is greater, beg for strength and for truth Desires of the flesh cannot fill the desires of the soul I pray for you, God take a trampled life and make it whole

God you my God

You know I never thought I would ever see 22 years of age
and see the many thing I have seen in my life so far
And go though all the things i have went though in life 
and from being a lil girl to a young lady and now becoming a women
I just want to say thank you
you are my God 
my lord
you are the one who give me will power when I am feeling helpless
you are the one who wipe away my tears on my raining days
you are the one who keep me warm at night in your arm on the really really cold night 
you are the one who stop me from doing the wrong thing 
you are the one who brought me back to life when someone almost took mines
you are the one who told me to not give up when life took the best of me and I felt like giving up
You are the one who was my side when i lost my love ones
You are the one who told me Im going to make it though all of the crazy things I am going though
You are the one who told me to get out that car that night 
You are the one who kelp my mother alive 
You are the one who save here many times from the one thing that killing her

You know in my heart and I love you more then anything 
You help me though alot and still is 
you are the reason I am still here

free cee GOD CRAM IT

          GOD CRAM IT
There is nothing your god can conceive of
To explain my adoration and love
It can’t be your generosity or concern
Because this is what I’ve come to learn

I’ve learned that you couldn’t care less about what I need
And your whole life is constructed on a foundation of greed
Anything you want suddenly you can afford
While what I want and need is totally ignored

My love can’t be based on what you are willing to give
Because you say I use as an excuse the fact that I don't have long to live 
And you’ll never admit that you really wont' give a sh*t after I’ve died
and your beauty, by selfishness is belied

It cannot possibly be because you care
Because what you do to me is so unfair
It’s all about you and what you demand
And I’m so in love with you I follow every f*cking command

You are a horrid example of what love shouldn’t be
So it can’t be the reason you put up with me
There must me an agenda of which I’ll never be aware
Because you do so many things I cannot bear

You are a lesson in how to lessen one’s love and desire
While you have the nerve to name me the liar
I ask for the smallest of favors and your response is no’
So my reason for loving you is something even your god doesn’t know

All I know is that I love you and will until I die
Yet and still I’ll never know why
You do nothing to demonstrate your desire to please me
And there’s certainly nothing your god can do appease me

 I waste my money trying in earnest to prove how I feel
But nothing you say or do seems honest or real
I can’t understand why you even want us to be a pair
When you don’t even know the meaning of the word “share”

The Marriage of Ruth

How she loves so deeply. Sadden from too many losses. Loss of her husband, brother-in-law, father-in-law, biological family, homeland, etc… Her dramatic point was her love for Boaz. However, Ruth was obligated to someone else. A kinsman had first priority. He was closer to Ruth then Boaz was. He has the right of the kinsman-redeemer. Boaz informed Ruth that there was someone closer than he was. He went to the gate of the City of Bethlehem. He sat there with esteem and honor. At the gate, he approached the closer kin. He said to him, “Come aside, friend, sit down here.” Ruth was not present. Mr. So-and-So, name not given, sat and declined to redeem his obligations to Ruth. Just punishment was upon him. No lack of honor was involved. Boaz became honorable. Ruth became his wife. The marriage of Ruth was done in truth. All is well in Israel. ___________________________________/ Sponsor: Isaiah Zerbst Contest Name: Ruth Entry Date: March 11, 2013 ~Please read About This Poem~

CONFESSION



When my words touched your soul

Sincerely I could understand how much you 
Appreciate me and accept me wholeheartedly. 
Frankly I have betrayed my Conscience, 
I have deceived you 
And I have denied my words before you 

Due to my lustful desire about you
I chose not to make up my mind 
To flee your presence, but 
Saw it as an avenue to fulfill my proposed intention 
As I lust after you yesterday night. 

The desire was there since I met you, 
Yet I denied it until now. 
I care about you and 
I am confident that we are still that best of friend. 

But it is virtually uncomfortable and inconvenience for me 
To keep encouraging such affair 
As a way of expressing my desires and sensual feelings. 
I ought to have fled last night at that point I realized that, 
I could not contain myself again 
Instead I was so carried away by my conflicting desires. 
When I engaged myself by that kiss and more kisses.

After you left my soul was filled 
With shame of deceiving you 
I am sorry for all I had made you experience. 
Remember I love you and I do not think, 
That is how to express love. 
Since, love protects, love endures, love hope, 
Love perseveres and love is self control. 

Just have a place in your heart to forgive me. 
I felt remorseful of myself 
And I do not know how to face you and tell you
I felt so stupid before God 
When God came calling...ME
Because HE was there when the drama happened
As he came calling ADAM 
After eaten the forbidden fruit with EVE

I never meant to ignite and arouse your emotions 
By the content of my words to you
I was only concern about disclosing my love for you 
Which you understand was not meant for such affair 
Nor kisses but for the sake of friendship
 
I was overwhelmed by your response and 
I could not resist your advances but to accept you
As you walked into me in your Nudity
I was to blame for that act of kisses 
This resulted to such sexual exploration. 

I am remorseful and seeking forgiveness 
And I believe you have forgiving me
I can understand my inability as a man
When with a woman In close door
I admit that I cannot predict my emotion or action 
When I am too close and in closed door with you

Just accept me the way I am and 
Please turn your thoughts to God at moment
He only can comfort you and fill the VOID
Since, I do not want to awaken your love 
Until it so desire and wish to be loved
Just know you are Unique
Just know that your Words touched my Soul 
Just know you are Special

Fertilizer

The wrath of God doesn’t have to be
the size of a hurricane
nor a major flood or forest fire
to leave us all in pain.

It can be an itch or an annoying twitch
a big black hair on your nose
painfully shy or one crossed eye
it’s terrible to have one of those.

Ugly or clumsy or not very smart
we all have our cross to bear
mismatch your socks get chicken pox
or forget your underwear.

Cowlicks birthmarks and knobby knees
all conspire to bring us down,
crooked teeth big ears and zits
are here to make us frown.

With a squeaky voice you don’t rejoice
and bad breath is problematic
as is hobbling on a cane
when you have a sore sciatic.

Oh Dear Lord just look at me!
a melting pot of woes!
As a kid I made a face
and wouldn’t you know…it froze!

What will we do with these gifts from you
bestowed on us in your wrath?
As we complain down here in our shame
do you sit on a cloud and laugh?

But then God said as he shook his head;
“My child I love you so..
these minor things that set you apart
are here to help you grow.”

I'm Sorry

I’m sorry I didn’t cry when you lost your dad
I’m sorry that I always made you mad
I’m sorry that I couldn’t hold you tight
And tell you that I love you with all my might
I’m sorry that I always called you names 
Sorry I was mean and caused you pain
Saying bad things that I regret
I hope that one day you will forgive.

I’m sorry that I didn’t see your hurt
I’m sorry I was once a stupid girl
I’m sorry that I didn’t love and respect
Turning our marriage into a wreck
Please forgive me for being wrong
And all those nights I cried all night long
I knew that you really cared for me
I was just blind and I couldn’t see.

I’m sorry that your life has been so hard
Tryin’ your best but not gettin’ very far
Life’s punching you from left and right
You just want to quit and give up the fight
And I know that you’re still hurting inside
You married again so you wouldn’t have to cry
With your heart still broken from before
You try to hide that you’re still unsure.

I’m sorry that your brother took the easy way out
I’m sorry you couldn’t help him when he was in doubt
I’m sorry that your life has been so cruel
Nothing but an ugly joke to you
And so from time to time I continue to pray
I hope that you’ll call on HIM someday
So you’ll be filled with His grace and love
And be protected from the Lord God above.

And now that your left here all alone
Empty inside tryin’ to fill the hole
Goin’ down the wrong path and through the wrong door
Your soul’s left empty and you’re wanting more
Thinking to yourself will things ever change
Wondering why God had made you this way
Cause you’re not livin’ your just here
Goin’ through the motions of life in fear.

And so you try to keep movin’ on
Survivin’ and tryin’ to keep yourself strong
But you rely on others to hold you up
And you keep on passin your sufferin’ cup
“Why does it have to be this way
Why can’t I have peace and live happily”
Let me tell you this to your lost soul
Surrender to God and then you will know.

Letter To My Baby

So loved you came into my life
And I hoped you would stay
To hear all the important things
That I’ll never get to say
That you were mommy’s precious gift
And I loved you like no other
And I dreamt about the day
I could give you a sister or a brother
That while you were in my belly
I sang to you your own lullaby
And that I still haven’t found the voice
To tell you goodbye
That I wanted so badly
To hold you to my chest
And tell you God gave me you
Because I would love you the best
That sometimes I think about
What you would look like today
If fate had decided
That you would be born that day
That I wanted so badly to know
Your sweet baby smell
And I wanted to count each perfect
Little baby fingernail
I wanted to teach you to ride a bike
And how to bake a pie
How to love with all your heart
And to never cheat or lie
I wanted to read you a fairytale
Every single night
And tell you that God is the magic
That makes our souls take flight
I wanted to show you so many things
That a little kid should know
But now I’ll never even have the chance
To say I love you and hello
That even though you’re gone
You still mean the world to me
And that forever you’ll remain
My precious little baby.

Jew #14

Like cheap market cloth in dirt-stained cheap hands
Love's been abused, narrowly defined, broken
Like a cistern into selfish small strands
Until its only a silly token
Of our greed. But I see God image still
In you, a high and vaulted beauty bright
Like Judean star top a quiet hill
And I drink the inner peace of your light
And let your wisdom teach my anxious soul
To trust, and patience in they realm of joy
Improves my faith, frees me of dross alloy
And stand me before the ancient promise gold
Jew, you are ever love to me, my eyes
Await you like tides wait the moon to rise.
                          ii
O that God dilate the heart of men like dreams
That bring them face to face with fantasies
They mistake for love. O that sense redeems
Them from their faults and inaccuracies
By which they compare my truth to their claims
And cheapen my passion with fleshly needs
For my love all worth of cold earth exceeds
And she who claims it above mortal flames
Another sun that galaxies do chase
Without satisfaction of her embrace

For we created once, redeemed again
Incubate forever his image new
Become the purpose for sunshine and rain
Sacred vessels among the chosen few
                          iii
So gift from God I exalt you above
The sun, the moon, the stars as my true love
We sensible beyond skin and flesh proclaim
A richer treasure in our clay carved frame
The place from which all joy exults, the core
Of songs eternity. I love you more
Than palace troves of wealth, more than sweet time
Seducing still my heart, and your smiles chime
The hours of my happiness, the tower
Of my care. And yet, you but a flower,

Sweeter than a silly girl's tear, you are
The jewel of my heart's garden, my dear
Rare in earth's botany, fresher by far
For youth in you cannot the seasons sear.
                         iv
Love is the blending of our two hearts, when
You are rose then I am soil, feeding you
The substance of my heart. If a song, then
I am every sweet note that rapture you
And if only human, then, Adam again
I yield myself, and rib, and all I am
Even against your wrong I be your lamb
For to be so our life is long ordain ...
Kiss me then like wild comet's fire, I will
Supply your breath like atmosphere. Hold me
Close in the tide of your desire, and still
We will move to life sweetest symphony
For we are blended, love, like salt and sea
And find in each love's true identity

I knew you in my heart while you were growing

I knew you in my heart while you were growing
in your mother's womb. I prayed for you every
day. I never knew such a sense of love and terror
in the same breath but would grow to be accustomed
to this state of existence for the rest of my
life. 
Each day I think about you and wish for you all the
good things that God will Grant you in your life
and all the desires of your heart that are good for
you and those you choose to care about.
You are my Olympian. My Champion and the Love of
my Life. I Bless God and Thank Him everyday that you
are in my life. 
I would die for you, step into the pits of Hell and
burn forever for you, if it would save you in a trade
for you. Without hesitation if that is the only deal
I can get directly and only from God.
I would pursue you to the ends of the Earth to retrieve you. 
I would fight anyone and any thing for your protection and well-being. 
No one in the world inspires me to this much and more.  I love you with all my 
heart.

Counting time

13 Weeks, 2 Days, 11 Hours & 21 Minuets,
That's how long you've been gone,
and today I thought about you non-stop,
Its like that everyday
So hard to forget all of the things I loved about you, but didn't see
You're life was long & happy, yet I only see your pain
I wish I could see you smiling,
But my memory plays like a broken record since you passed,
Its like I have a broken heart, broken for the first time
An unexplainable heartache, I wish I could see you one last time,
Id tell you I love you - again
Because today I mean it more than ever,
You were like a Mother to me, and I never told you that,
I hope you know how loved you were,
Time is passing slowly, life hurts
Soon I hope to look back with acceptance and look back with pride,
That god needed an angel, and that it was your time,
Your memory is burned within me, and I will never forget
You were more special to me than both of us ever knew
Good night, God Bless darling, I love you
xxxxxx

Where Do I Begin

Where do i begin.Where do i start.Where do i shatter and fall apart.In the moment of Triumph what will i lack.Support,Strength,Or the ability to attack.Do i pick up my Helmet or do i put it down.This is the moment i could take the crown.

What shall i take.When i get to the battlefield i start to shake.I have nothing but my word's.To keep me intact.But i messed up.There was something that i have lacked.Nobody at my side to help me fight the battle.Now my World,Life,and Home is all Shattered.

I guess it never really mattered.But i stand up and put my head high.Cause i know i will never have to say bye.You are always there for me no matter what i did.Even when i Fought, Lied, and Hid.I guess.I might not of ever said this but i think i did. Youw ill always be my Dawg but i just gotta say i love you god

Know one told me

   The day you left me no one told me that you were gone, I did not know till I got on 
a social site and there it was some one saying goodbye to you! I wanted to be 
there with you and hold you while god took you and told you to go home and no 
more pain would come to you again. I miss you like crazy and all I can think of is you 
saying how much you love me and my family and how one day you would be able to 
come stay with us and we would laugh and be happy always but I guess that was 
never to be cause god had other plans for you grandma and they were to be with 
him and that I would have to now live with out you and to never again here you tell 
me that you love me and I don't ever get to say I love you too you again.

My God and Your God

Abdul, Moshe, Patrick and John
Listen real close before its all gone
Akiro, Singh, Gonzales, and Lee
Listen real close listen to me

My God and your God is one and the same
Even though he sends different thoughts to our brain
You know thats really not our affair
As long as we all know he's really there

He's far to complex for us to comprehend
However thats no excuse why we can't be friend
I can tell you this without fear of an error
We can all love him fine  because he is fair

It's my job to worry greatly about me
I must leave his work to he who all sees
Into my heart I must constantly peek
To insure darkness of evil doesn't insidiously leak

It's not our job to judge or condemn
We are meant to love and be true to him
So to you I wish a glorious day
May we all get along as we go on our way

So being our God is one and the same
Don't you think we should start using our brain
We should stop being mean and infliciting such pain
Befor on us his hellfire does rain

We act like we ain't got common sense
For that kind of behavior there ain't no defense
He looks down upon us shaking his head
Says you better get it right before you are dead

Reflect on his message, it's peace and goodwill
Then we cn be friends and know his love with a thrill
I look forward to that kind of a life
I truly believe we can stop all this strife

So the next time you stop for you to pray 
Remeber these words to you I do say
I don't know you well but it would be swell
And I tell you I love you to stay out of hell

Being our God is one and the same
Don't you think we should start using our brain
Being our God is one and the same
Don't you think we should start using our brain

when its time to say goodbye


              when its time to say goodbye"

"He was only 14 born with a hole in his heart but it seemed like he lived ten lives of all
the hurt and pain.
On this earth for a very short time god only knows the pain he felt inside he put on a
smile and had fun
for a while  laughed and played,showing he was normal , he was brave,  he  passed one day
when god came
took his pain away, Leaving his friends and families with happy memories to share filled
with sunshine and laughter
and tears of memories of his smile now i know one thing he is our angel looking down on us
I say this to everyone
say" I love you "  to those you love  because you never know when its your time too say
Goodbye"

Cause God Don't Want Me Here Forever

someday I'm going to leave this place
going to say all of my Godly good grace
for I know I'm going to a better place


Cause God don't want me here forever


Going to say goodbye to some good friends
kiss and hug my child till the very end
say I love you to Mom and Dad once again


Cause God don't want me here forever


Say I'm sorry for all I've done
Still go out and have some great fun
keep reaching for that burning sun


Cause God don't want me here forever


Going to lay in a garden of lace
where the sun shines upon my face
pluck a flower and put it to taste


Cause God don't want me here forever


Going to spread a little love
To the man up above
going to wait for his white doves


Cause God don't want me here forever

Her Love

When I think about the love that she has given me, it makes me think of how one 
could love so deeply, how could one have a love so pure.  I love this women for 
just who she was, she has left me gifts that I cherish, she has been my 
inspiration, my best friend, my mother.  

When she called daughter, I listened with my ears, but her words went depper 
than the ears could hear.  Now that your gone, I can truly hear those words, those 
scriptures that wer given that my heart has hidden within.  The signs you gave I 
can now see, thank God I am no longer blinded to what you always could see. 

I miss you so much, but I know the only way for me to see you again is to live my 
life according to God's will.  I thank God for allowing me to know someone as 
great as you, to be in your presence was not by chance but predistined to what 
soon lies ahead.  I can't stop thinking about all that we been through  and how I 
met you.  I can't stop remembering how much I love you.

I cry not because your not with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, I cry because I 
miss you here on earth.  I feel like a piece of me is gone, I feel like no one will 
ever understand the depth of our relationship or our love, I love you so very 
much.  I wish that I could have been there with you to see you go home to glory. 

I am hurt but I know that God has my back in everything I do.  I promise you I will 
always put God first in all that I do. I pray that when your watching over us, you will 
smile and continue to pray for us.  Your love is very much undescribable, but 
when I think again it's nothing but that Agape love!  The same love that Jesus has 
for me.  I love you Willie, and I going to press on Mommy until God calls me 
home.

While You Are Asleep

I love to see you resting
I pray while you slumber
I talk to God about you
I ask Him to help me to help
You, and to help you
To help me. I give thanks
For you and Him, mostly
Because I believe for you
He made me and for me He 
Made you. I love you so much
So soon. I know that it is God
And not man that is in the middle
Of this romance. God loves you
And I do too. He is the only one
Who makes our lives complete,
And caused us to meet. I love you
So much that is why I pray for you
While you are asleep.

TAKING THE TIME TO READ THE SIGNS

How can we tell when our loved ones is in pain? What do we look for in times of 
their need?I ask my self time and time again and what could I have done 
different. I also ask my self why does someone end their life in such a short time. 
Was the pain so real that they went away. What was it that they  were trying to 
gain or trying to say. Was I so blind to see for myself. Why do they leave us and 
not want to stay. Were they hurting so deep down inside .Or did they look up to 
God or felt to lonley to pray. When you lose a loved one in such a tragic way. Do 
you blame yourself and ask God to bring them back because you did not want 
them to leave and wished they could of stayed. Do you feel like you wish you 
could  turn back the clock .And plead with God  and say why is my loved one gone 
please bring them back today so you can spend a different moment with them 
and  tell them you love them and not brush them off and not be in a hurry 
because you have too many things to do and why not treat that special time with 
pleasure letting them know With love, caring and concern, reach out your hand 
do not look at them with displeasure instead replace it with a smile on your face 
and a special glow. When they look in your eyes they will see pleasure and they 
will know when you say I love you and I want to enjoy  the special moments you 
have with them for someday when it is our calling when we are all old and gray 
they would not take their own life they would die when God calls them in his time 
so when their life here on earth is  ending it  would end a more natural way. 
Please take this moment in time and when your loved one is hurting don't look 
the other way tell them that they are ok. Then love with all your heart spend more 
time to listen when they are hurting so deep down inside. Don't think the pain 
they are having  will go away for they are trying to tell so something. Dont look the 
other way. Open up your heart and believe what I am saying for this is true. For I 
have lost a loved one and have not taking the time to read the signs.

My Lady

My dearest beloved sweetheart. As I sit here all alone, I ponder what will be my destiny. 
Then, thru the mist, a bright light appeared for god had sent me an angel. 
Oh my darling, when god created you he had in mind perfection. What more could any mortal man ask. You make my life complete, you are the very essence of my being, my heart beats for you, and you alone. 
Oh how my soul soars high above, like the majestic eagle, entwined with yours to rejoice in such a wondrous union. I have to say this, for I truly love you like no other woman has ever been loved before. 
I am humbled before you, I bow at you feet, my heart held out to you, my gift of life for you. It has been written that I will love you for all eternal time. 
You give unto me yourself as a rare and beautiful gift, one that has such tenderness, soft to touch, so warm to hold, and mine alone to love forever. Who am I you ask ? 
I am whom god made, A Man! To love the most incredible creature he has ever created. 
You, my darling, you are that person. So full of love and understanding how could any man not love you. But I am indeed a lucky man, for it is I you have chosen to love. 
For you bring out the very best of me. 
Indeed, it was a wonderful and proud day when we met. Little did I know then what joy was in store for me. 
My love, you have fulfilled all my wildest dreams, you have exceeded all that a man could ever want of a woman. 
You are my life. 
Oh my lady, I speak only truth, for you, and you alone have set my heart on fire. The passions burn out of control and yet, can be tamed by your touch, your softness. 
You have captured my soul and it rejoices, for you have made my life whole again. Your touch has healed the scars of time, you are indeed my lady for all eternal time. And I love you so. 
This is my promise to you, to love you, to honor and cherish you, to keep you safe so that non other can ever hurt you again. 
You will always be my love, now and always. For it has been written, and god will have his way.

Not Destined To Be Apart

Sincerely Yours,

it's me...

the man who loves you like no other could attempt.

the man who's heart yearns for your call each passing day..

the man who know's God will send you back my way.

Days are long and nights are sad, I miss you in every way possible.

My heart is always with you can you hear it when it calls?

Can you hear my voice softly calling your name?

Can you still see my face when you close your eyes?

and do you still dream of me in the wee ours of the night?

I know I do..I also long to hold you tight.

Even at night I can hear your heart call.

Even though your near...it seems that your far.

I hope you still think of me, cause I often think of you.

My strawberry, my sweetie, do you desire to stare in my eyes?

I desire to look at you the way I always do, in your eyes into your heart and soul.

I hope me saying I love you doesn't get too old.

Hopefully for me your heart hasn't gone cold, hopefully it still burns even more as days gone by.

SG1 my dearest love, I can't wait for God to have you to return.

"Space" my love hear my voice, hear my heart.

Know that were not destined to be apart...

A GIFT OF LOVE AND A PRAYER OF THANKS

 In the days since we first met I have only this one regret, that day and night I am 
not by your side. For this I do pray and let God be my guide.
 Our love is strong, yet I am so weak. This life with you is all that I seek. Nothing
more from God would I ask, but grant me lord this one small task.
 Our love is pure, simple and true, want to spend every moment just being with you.
In your arms I long to be, you seem to know my every need.
 Just know that I love you mind, heart and soul, it is with you that I want to grow 
old.
 So lord as I pray that this dream will come true, for this gift of love I am 
grateful to you.

A VOID

 My life is everything that I feel, some parts doesn't even seem real. Days go by 
were I am starting to feel old. Therefore, parts of my life effects my soul. It feels 
like I have a big void in my life, no matter what I say or do it just doesn't seem 
right.  At times I am by myself  with nothing to do. People tell me it just takes one 
and not  two.
 My blessing has come and gone, now I feel like I can not hang on. Tell me what 
is that void missing out of my life. It feels like it's not having a complete family or 
being a wife. I pray and ask God to give me strength, because I can't take 
anymore. I didn't think part of my life required me having to pick you up off the 
floor.
 Lonely, scared, sad and many more feelings in between. However, this is one 
picture I did not want to be seen. Tell me why do I have this hole in my heart. I 
hope it will leave and not take a part of my soul. My soul was giving to me by God 
and I want to give it back. It's hard at times, because it's something in my life that 
I lack.
  All my feelings life and soul was giving to you. In your hand you are giving it 
back, because you don't  know what to do. I remember your exact words. "GET 
OUT AND TAKE YOUR THINGS". I guess you forgot, I worked hard and all those 
things I did bring. I know you told me you were trying to make it day by day, but I 
know without me you will forget your way.
 I know you were not perfect and neither am I,  but all you did was tear out my 
heart and made me cry. I love you with all my heart and always will, but my soul I 
will not let you keep or steal. I am finally saying good-bye and walking out  the 
door and this part of my life will not cause a void anymore.

Mother

Mother, Mother how I wonder how you made it this far.
Going through trials and tribulations and having a wreck in a car.
You are such a diamond in my eyes and even when you cry.
I want to tell you it will be alright.
But I know God is holding you tight.
I know your heart is so big and you have love for everyone.
Giving you your flowers right now for what you have done.
So don't think no one cares.
I don't get even when you mess up your hair!
Everyone that comes around appreciates a word from you.
Some hearts are broken, but a word helped them through.
You hand out poems, bibles and all kinds of sorts.
Just to show them God will hold down the fort.
So Mother, Mother I love you so dear.
Mother, Mother can you hear me so clear?
Mother, Mother you are God's child.
Mother, Mother I thank you for being there when I ran wild.
So Mother, Mother I wondered how you made it this far you know!
Praying and shouting was the only way to go.
So may God bless you everyday!
These are just a few words I had to say.

Goodbye Baby

I was the highlight of your life Mommy but just for a while.
Daddy promised me we’d play catch when I grew up a bit.
But then that day came, Mommy.
God came for me while I slept,
He said not to worry Mommy.
He said I was sick it was something that the doctors missed.
Please tell Daddy we’ll play catch when God comes for him too.
And Mommy I promise when you come we’ll bake our cookies,
The ones that Daddy loves so much.
Tell Grandma, Grandpa, and Auntie too that I miss them and I’ll always be with 
you.
The angels said that I’ll grow up real quick up here,
But I told them No I’ll wait until the year when my Mommy and Daddy come to stay.
But we all still play.
Its fun up here Mommy.
But I know that down on Earth you are crying because God came to take me away.
But don’t worry Mommy God said that I was really sick.
I know you love me Mommy and I love you too.
But please Mommy don’t look so blue,
God said that instead of him, I can come and get you and Daddy.
But God said I must wait until the time is right and trust me that time is nowhere 
in sight.
So please don’t look all upset Mommy, Daddy you too,
Just remember that I am always watching over you.
I must go now mommy the Angels are giving me my wings.
Then they told me I could come and watch over you and Daddy,
Forever if I want
