Soar

Soar

I wrote this poem for one of my best friends a couple of years back. I went looking for it because I felt that I really needed this reminder myself. The funny thing is that Chris and I have reversed roles. He is much happier and content than he was when we met. Wait a [...]

Abound in Hope

Abound in Hope

Don't be afraid to look ahead Don’t be afraid to dream There's still hope in the unseen. Maybe you can't see it with your eyes Maybe you're caught up in all of the lies But in hope we'll see We'll realize  The future bests the days behind.  Don't be afraid to take a chance There's [...]

We womenkind enjoy poking fun of the menfolk who stubbornly refuse to stop and [...]

This isn't what I was going to post today. I did it again. I really have to learn not to speak so soon (sigh), but the Lord will get through to me eventually.  Speaking of eventually... I was definitely in a good mood on Sunday. It's pretty clear that I'm in good spirits when my [...]
