Precious Gift

There is so much I want you to know, young girl…

About your precious babe…

How she looks up at you

with outstretched arms

and loving gaze.

Do you notice?

Why do you ignore her needs?

Distract yourself with so many other things?

When she is needing love, direction and care

You are truly blessed to have this little life

to mold, love and care for….

I am saying this to you

because my lovely has grown

and time has moved on

so very fast…

I was you, though long ago…

not aware of my precious gift.

However, with Gods love for me…

I came to realize…

that my love for her is

the reason I exist.

Unity

💜Inspired by the strength and faith of the people of First Emmanuel in South Carolina.💜

How do we define struggle for another?

for select people?

for our country?

struggle against hate…

struggle against evil…

struggle against violence…

struggle for peace…

struggle for UNITY…

Impossible to “intellectually” know

the struggles of another…

Yet, we ALL struggle…

Struggle is temporary through Gods eyes…

if we build Our Strength on the presence of Him.

Only then, can hate be extinguished,

Conflict be squelched,

Evil vanquished,

And Peace be restored.

These Lines Women- Odd Walking Thoughts

Was suggested to read this blog by a fellow blogger. Eloquently and concisely written. Sometimes as a writer, I am looking for the perfect word, perfect phrasing etc.. As an artist, to be “true” all you have to do is express, nothing else. Love this. Thanks M. Taggart😃

I’m nothing. Take a large pull from your glass of wine and write. Write your exact thought. Do not ask forgiveness. Mountains do not ask whom to step over. Men do not ask to take a drink. Nor’ to ask permission to live. If this is how you feel- write it. Say it exactly and do not describe. Then, ask nothing.

Femme

This post is inspired by a friend who passed away in her early thirties, leaving beautiful children behind. I think about her and her children from time to time.💜

She’s the beautiful daughter whose mother’s life ended too quickly…

Her mother won’t be there to take pictures of her in her prom dress and
ponder of her child dearly…

She won’t have her mom stand with her in pride as she walks down
the graduation aisle…

She will not have her mom hold her newborn baby with love and care

She will just miss her mom “being there”…

Everyone believes differently about what comes after we live life..

But I say thank goodness there is a Heaven…

And many angels all around us…

And Mothers watching and protecting us from afar…

She’s the beautiful daughter whose mother’s life ended too quickly…

But she has treasured times with her own daughter…

And knows after she has left this world…

There will be more…

Summer Breeze

Warm summer breeze…
making the weeping willows dance…
and the grass move with such ease…

You and I sitting by the tree…
Silent, hand in hand,
Gazing at the silvery creek..

Hearing nothing but the tall grass moving
Birds chirping, sounds of nature
And we are stealing kisses from time to time

Feeling as though this day could forever be
frozen in this moment in time…

My Father

You have been my biggest supporter
My encourager when I needed encouragement
Even though there were times I wanted to do things my way

You were there when no one else was
Ready and willing to give me a second chance
Believing in me and my ability
To turn things around

I am so glad to have you as my father, my friend
To have my back, to be with me during the highs and lows
Loving me and being proud of who I am..

Happy Birthday Dad!”
