Found you

I dreamt of you
I danced all night long in your strong embrace
I have fought and worked for this 
Tomorrow we will walk hand in hand together into the sunset
You won't let me go and I know that now
We laugh and smile
We are one 
I won't give up on this 
It gives me the rush 
The desire for your love 
Keeps me on the move
This is a dream 
I'm just waiting to wake up
I finally found you

desert fire

I am eaten
Its a flesh eating disease
I've been on fire
I have tried
to understand

I see the blood on my hands
in my mind in my dreams
her eyes haunt me
they are on fire, brilliant
and beautiful

Its all a beautiful song
like a Hollywood drama
the sandstorm is almost done
and a thorny red rose will appear

The good comes from the bad
and the thorns will present
Forgiving freedom
and beautiful glass

Some of you will rebuild the deserted ruins of your cities. Then you will be known as a rebuilder of walls and restorer of homes. Isaiah 58:12

My world has been broken and destroyed. My children's lives shattered, a family torn, and images of horror every night. Daily I struggle to allow these things to harbour in my heart and soul. Im trying to pick up the peices to confront, forgive, extend grace, and heal. Jesus restore my heart, rebuild my family, help me overcome hurts, and help me rebuild a beautiful life for my children. Help me to be strong so I can be what you want me to be.

You lied to me,
I trusted you,
I never asked,
I opened up,
You took control,
Took advantage,
I loved you for you,

Now I walk away,
Confused and torn,
I'm a fighter,
I will not look back,
I'll take the good and cherish it,
And throw away the bad and burn it,
You lied,
When all I asked for...
Was love and honesty.

Believe none of what you hear,
I should not have believed you,

Half of what you see,
I loved all of what I saw,
But now you look like that,

Rotten banana peel...
That was falling off the wall.

Worth fighting for?

Love is what makes anything worth fighting for. If Love is not in the equation then forget the battle. It is a waste of time. Love is the reason to live or die. Sacrificing for another is what has made all the positive difference in the world. Giving your best effort to figure problems out and to make dreams real, standing up for the weak, setting a good example of bravery and trust in the Good, thinking of others and the future more than mere comfort today--these are gifts humans can give each other. If you are talking about a relationship, it comes down to Love as well. Even though we are imperfect, fighting for the Love we share is still valid. Love is an action as well as a feeling. It means acting unselfishly for another's best interest and the best interest of the relationship. It means defending both against who and/or whatever would destroy it. It is digging deep, even during times of doubt, to be true to a worthy partner. It is clarifying that the relationship is a priority. If you don't fight, what are you left with? Physical fighting may not be what is required or recommended but there needs to be one's best effort shown to give meaning to one's vow of loyalty.

mom day

Training has taught me to be numb to most emotions Most relationships end due to my coldness I have always retreated from touch Tonight I stare at my babies They need my touch my love and protection For the first time I realize that I might need that too Who is strong enough to take that on? We will see or maybe I should conform? I love you mom, you are my hero... Happy Mothers Day Mom

I slept His arm held me close I was sleeping in a hammock rocking in the breeze cool and sweet Aroma of musk and sweet pine I was sailing on the open water I could see innocent children skipping rocks on the beach the sun glistening off of their blond hair Everything at peace I sleep Knowing his arms are around me no matter where I go I am at peace Smelling and tasting his love Sailing with faith and happiness
