Gratefulness

8 Jul

Now I am grateful for the rainy days as well as the bright ones
Because I know the rain brings growth

So I guess Im grateful for the not so good days and for the great ones
Because during the good times I may forget to thank the Lord for what he has brought me through

Im grateful for the boy and girl who occupy all my time
They’ve helped me to see the beauty in one moment

Im grateful for all the struggles
Without those I wouldn’t be here

I’m grateful for my heart which led me down some dark roads
If I hadn’t been there I would have thought I missed the world

Im grateful no one told me the things I wish they would have
Now I can tell my children from experience

Welcome

2 Jul

Welcome
I don’t want to stay but your so comforting I cant turn away
The day dawns on my eyes
Here I am lingering behind

If I move the moment will end
Vanish like a puff
Gone in the wind

Whose to say if I stay
What will happen
Today is another day

Hours we’ve spent on the phone
Falling asleep
Youre gone

When were together
There is no separation
As we watch the sunrise
I hope you don’t see the tears in my eyes

Im off now
But never with a goodbye
Its always see you later

Friday of Wonder

24 Jun

I wonder if there is a greater joy to be felt
Than what I feel when you smile at me
What Ive always wanted
Ive completed a piece of me

Isaiah a name I never knew
Until you came into my life
Now they call you Vida Blue
Or Zeeky

Whatever name you go by
The face will always be the same
The one who stole my heart
The one who wont give it away

You don’t have to be a kid for your dreams to come true
The more you live the more you’ll go through
My son don’t wonder I’ll always be there for you
And when I’m not your Father will never forsake you

Distance

15 Apr

On Distance

I wish I could Distance myself from the worries of this life
Place a huge space between myself and the hurt

I know that distance would cancel out some of my greatest memories
The births the loves the scars that all equal a lesson learned

Im thankful God hasn’t put distance between him and me
all I have to do is take the time to get on my knees

Im ready to go the distance in all aspects of my life
Today is a new day with distance from yesterdays mistakes

Only left is the distance we create
Love makes up all

Isaiah is what stands out for me this year. I have always wanted a son to dress up in those cute outfits and hats but when I found out I was pregnant I had mixed feelings. I knew I would love him, but I wanted to move before I had the baby. My fiance and I had talked about moving but the news of the baby pushed everything up. Where I am living my mother’s house there are 8 of us in a two bedroom. I was so worried and stressed trying to find a place, making sure the baby had everything he needed and just wondering how things would work out; that I ended up going into labor 3 weeks early. When he was born he was 4 lbs 10 oz. He was taken from my hospital room two days after he was born and placed into NICU. Then I learned what real worry was. He wasn’t eating enough, he had jaundice, I was trying to breast feed him. So on top of not having my newborn with me I also had to pump enough milk for him (that was no problem) but since I was discharged from the hospital and could only stay over one night (due to hospital regulations) I had to travel back and forth not only to deliver milk but more importantly to have the chance to hold my son. I just wanted him to be okay and to come home. When he did a week later realized it didn’t matter where home was as long as it was full of love. We are still looking for own home but in the meantime I am content and thankful. Thank you Lord

If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven: how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith? And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind. For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things. But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you. Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Luke 12:28-32

This passage reminds me to be at ease and to let God take care of things. I know he will provide. I need to focus on praising him for what he has done. Someone said praise him in the midst of the storm.
