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.

absence, animal, christian, death, encouraging, sympathy, uplifting,
Though my stall here is empty now
If you listen close...
You can hear me running through a greener pasture
Your sorrow opens the gate and releases me free
Thank you for rescuing me from worldly darkness
And giving me love unsurpassed
So that I may now run with others so loved...
But never forgotten
I am a child again young and lean my spirit afire
And oh how our spirits thrive here
Never again to feel the pain of the earth
Hear me running!
For your tears have watered the grasses for me
In God's Greener Pasture

christian, jesus, love,
The Rose of Sharon bled holy red
with a crown of thorns upon His head
His blood flowed through time and space
pleasing the Father, covering our disgrace.
How great Thou art, oh spotless Lamb
to suffer for the souls of man
innocent, beaten, torn and scarred
healed by Your stripes from eternal harm.
Believe in the power of the blood
shed freely upon that cross above
for by it we're forgiven if we truly believe
new life to be given if we truly receive.
The Rose of Sharon bled holy red
with a crown of thorns upon His head.

blessing, christian, devotion, emotions,
An iridescent sapphire cuts into the night’s sky clearly
a gift unasked for and predestined appears solidity
love is the luster smelted inside the eastern chambers afar
Hooked upon the waxing moon’s burgeoning smile that shines
mesmerizing silver shadows dance under your bloodstained beams
beckoning freedom in an heavenly escape reflects back unconditionally
A tantalising call nurtured on the precarious wind surrounds the soul
shaded Sacred Heart images dance beckoning inside chorographic unison
never imagined acceptance of grace awaits in your tender loving embrace

christian, good morning, morning,
Stepping into the morning sunrise,
I leave behind the veil of night.
The sun greets my sleepy eyes,
as the world unfolds before my sight.
The dew freshly coats the waiting ground
with kisses from the loving sky.
As the orchestra of creation sounds,
it's choir of birds sings their lullaby.
What gifts does this morning bring,
will love win the day?
Closer to the Lord I will tightly cling,
till we meet again to pray.
Every day leaves it's footprints
on the heart and on the mind.
And every man his dreams spent,
searching for the treasures the day has left behind.

christian, faith, god, heaven, hope, love, pets,
Blessed are those that before already knew
the living ark for in him they
found Heaven one day Boo.
His light casts no shadows — it goes right thru,
all tears will be wiped away in
God’s Heaven one day Boo.
Angelic songs comfort animals too,
nothing will ever die again
in Heaven one day Boo.
Find sweet Smudges among the flowers blue
and tell her mother is coming
to Heaven one day Boo.
I have already started to miss you,
tomorrow always comes too soon,
til Heaven one day Boo.

blessing, care, christian, cute love, friend, friendship, giving,
Love is the wine of life
It intoxicates beyond all
Love is a pollination agent
It spreads far above all
Races and tongues
Love is an endless river
That flows to all land
The song of love rules
All ears and ages
Our body and soul is tied
Together by love
Love is the best language
In the universe because
Love melts mountains of obstacles

TEACH YOUR CHILDREN
Teach your children right from wrong
Help them sing a happy song
Always love them for who they are
Don’t try to make them into a star
Children are sent from heaven above
To be taught,cherished and loved
And soon we will all understand
All a child needs is a guiding hand
They’ll always remember the days of old
And it will be forever engraved in gold
That their parents helped through it all
And picked them up when they would fall

absence, age, cheer up, christian, family, giving, miss you,
I prayed today for the elderly
They long to hear for you to say
Words of love and words of praise
With acts of kindness they once gave.
And if you’re going by their way
They’d like for you to stop and pay
A visit where you both can play
Disregard what you may.
Before their heads they shall lay
At night before the sun and it’s ray
When they bow their heads as they pray
Praying you and everyone will be okay.

All's not about Darfur
I've seen it, eerie winds
Moonlight through our thatch
We kissed round, one *palmie gourd
Kigali was but a miss
Waist-beads - beats to love
Have you heard the talk-drum,
*Fela's horns of brass,
Or the *Aladuras' joy of Alleluia?
My grandmother still walks miles
Just because her forbears did,
And shame on malaria
For the dearth of men
Oh, on Mandela's earth
Of Soyinka's nobel ideas
Africa - a big breast,
the good, the bad, the ugly. . .
all, as sucklings!
*palmie - palm wine
*Fela - Celebrated afrobeat musician
*Aladura - a popular african instituted christian sect noted for heavy prayers

age, beauty, birthday, celebration, christian, mom, mother daughter,
on this special day
I doest say
that thy mother is of graceful sort
it hath been said she is devine
and I do holdeth this to be true
now dearest mother may I be so bold
to tell you the sun still shinest on one so old
as true as this be
you still grasp your faith
like the roots of a tree
tis said you are wise
and this I have found true
the eye doeth grow deceived when it is drawn upon you
as your thoughts become known
only then your age is shown

christian, husband, inspirational, love, marriage, romantic, true love, uplifting,
With the beginning of each new day.
When I look at you I say,
"How could have I been so blessed?"
As I take you in my arms and caress.
It's only the beginning for us,
With a life time of love and trust.
We have family and friends,
That we count on and depend.
They share with us their love,
That only comes from God above.
Because of You, Lord, our love holds true.
This I know will see us through.
For richer or poorer,
In sickness and health,
For better or worse,
Till death do us part.
Our new beginning, a new start...

beautiful, beauty, dream, heart, love, metaphor, romantic,
The center of a star reflects just like a diamond...
Returning a pearl within each silver breath that one treasures...
With faceted panels, I promised I'd never...
Sweep over a deep sea of blue waves unmeasured...
There is a pattern woven inside golden petals that kiss the inside of my heart...
Parts of my heart that I've thus' failed to start...
With soft fingers dancing, you're forever entrancing...
My star that's eternally far...

christian, death, goodbye, love, metaphor, religious, symbolism,
Scattered on the ground,
Out of their element.
Deprived of its origin.
Clarity no longer visible.
In the purest snow,
Frozen to the core.
Stripped away so rash.
Trampled into dust.
Stolen without knowledge.
Endless death fighting to prevail.

bible, christian, faith, god, heartbroken, hope, inspiration, inspirational, prayer, religious,
Soft, still, the silence heaves
I inhale, the Spirit breathes;
Flowing, growing Christ bestowing
Life and strength surpassing knowing.
Scented, soothing, respiration
Taking in His inspiration;
Filling, feeling Christ exalted
Love and Grace supremely vaulted.
Sure, secure the Spirit wind
Where flows the Sovereign;
God revealing Christ resplendent
Hope and purpose codependent.
When He breathes upon the morn
Hope has dawned and life is born;
He my all in all shall be
From now unto eternity.

bible, christian, jesus, love, sea, truth, water,
Find me in the sea full of empty shells.
They are bones over Noah’s burnt vessel,
ashes of gopher, Calvary’s wood the
timeless ark and rungs on Jacob’s ladder.
Moor your might to my truth and blink your eye.
Before you’re adrift in Luke’s gulf, find me.

christian, god, jesus, love,
Looking at His world here below
Feel His love fall down on us
So much goodness he bestows
Through Him we're so bless!
Look up at the starlight
Each special light designed
Showing to us as bright
With all His love so fine
In each new day a reason
See the points that shine
In every life there's a season
His LOVE is perfect and divine!

In My Brokenness
It is in my brokenness that I seek
Your face Lord as never before,
it is in my brokenness that I find You
as I open every door in my life to You as never before.
It is through my pain that I see my God that
You allow things to happen in my life not to hurt me,
but You allow them in my life
to bring me to my knees.
And when I call upon You and Your answer comes
and You hold me now so close,
it’s in my brokenness my Wonderful Lord
that You reveal to me Your personage and love for me the most.

Snow sprinkles the ground
as delicate as sugar
crystallizing the exterior with a romantic heritage
only found in the heart of a child's imagination.
Like happiness it can melt in your hands,
and like happiness it can grow bitter like the ice you slip on
Forming miraculously to the curves of the earth
hugging till the land soaks in it's providence
white like the pages I battle with
Falling so passionately you'd think it was falling in love with the ground
And when it lands,
A blanket of perfection
glistening the season to a crisp
gently the sun arises
"there's no where to go today,
I'm just going to sit and enjoy the magic."

Lord., I've Been Hurting!
This one thing I am
Lately I’ve been really hurtin’.
I trying to do right, but it
turns out “wrong.”
Where, in life,
do I really belong?
So many people
pass me by.
may say; “hi!”
I don’t know if this message is
I feel so confused and
A message of “help” has my
prayer and plea…
For God to reach out to me!
He reached down and
made me whole!
HIS love and compassion
filled my soul!
Spending time with Jesus
is time well spent!
It was for you and me that
Jesus was sent!

bible, blessing, christian, inspirational, religion, religious, spiritual,
I love u Jesus for what you've done for me
You died on the cross of Calvary
You didn't think about your self
Coz you wanted me to be saved from hell
The crown of thorns upon your head
And the fact that for my sin you bled
When I think about the pain that u bore
I start to love u more and more
Words can't express my love for you
You've changed my life made it brand new
So now I have a place secured in Paradise
I'll reach there when I close my eyes
I want to live to please you Lord
Coz you are the maker, the One true God

bible, christian, dedication, devotion, jesus, joy, true love,
Yes, all to Him, I owe!
He paid the price,
the debt that I had owed.
No greater gift He gave, His "life!"
How precious is the blood!
of the lamb that was slain.
For He rose "Jesus," after that faithful Third day alive!
with all power over hell, death and the grave!
How lovely and excellent is the name.
For it is the name, that is above all other names.
"Jesus," "God is Salvation."
He is the resurrected glorified one.
The commencement and the end to all things created.
Also, coming back again!
