Victory

Waking a bit melancholy isn't abnormal for me, but I've been surprised a few times to wake up and smile at the day. Last Saturday was a bit of a melancholy start, but Jesus gave me something to smile about right away.  Next, I spent quite a bit of time with Him meditating on His [...]

Evening Light

Evening Light

Evening Light  So lovely a night Warm through and through Let me bask in this sight. Can't I stay outside? Can't I capture the moon? I could sleep under the stars Till I'm bit by a racoon.  Tina S.W.

Seek (Search)

Seek (Search)

I don’t normally post on Thursday's but this was heavy on my heart. Seek I know that you're hurting I feel your pain But one day these tears will be wiped away Then everything will change Nothing will be the same Until then we must pray And encourage one another To seek God's face.*  Tina [...]

Rescue Me

Rescue Me

I have a poem for you! First, let's take a look at what yesterday brought. I woke up at around 4AM and couldn't get back to sleep. Very grey thoughts churned around in my head until the alarm went off at 7AM. By then I was in tears. Early in the afternoon Andrew and I [...]

But oh the sound of falling rain  To me it's still a sweet refrain Maybe you're caught in the deluge And it's a struggle to hear the sweet song I understand the pain there  When [...]

Lovingkindness

Lovingkindness

It's no big deal? She wishes this were true Tell this to her battle When she's lost and she's confused Tell this to her mountains  When the rocks keep coming loose Tell this to her heart When it's battered and abused. It's no big deal? She wishes it were so Tell this to her giants [...]

Hot Stuff

Hot Stuff

I considered sparing you this last bit of romance, but then I thought, Hey, why not ?When you're hot you're hot. Well... the tea is always hot anyways. Me: Would you like some tea? Andrew:  Yes. My cup is over here. Me: Oh, where's the lid?  Andrew:  I don't know. It didn't have one. That's [...]

Type Cast

Type Cast

I'm not an entertainer For me there's little appeal I'd rather not to be type cast I prefer to keep it real.  Sometimes I like to contemplate  And drink in something deep There are times I have a lot to say Other times I barely speak. I can surely be filled with excitement  But at [...]

So stop falling into that pit just because love was on your lips.  "Do everything [...]
