These monsters that we preach Disguised as advertisements and fun TV shows They lead to this hate that we have now reached Guns passing faster than silly love notes during boring track meets A generation fast fading in neighborhoods unseen Their backs turned to themselves and their dying consciences Hate is glorified in the most lavish of ways Who can curse faster and better? Be the bully to that freckled fatty with redhead Love now larger and farther than a once four letter word Still a heavy burden on the hearts of those who seek to live it Monsters are disguised in the most beautiful of ways Thousand dollar purses on Robertson Boulevard Katherine’s growing baby bump the obsession of many dawns Youths in disdain adults in disarray Corrupt economies on the rise as the chocolate cookies crumble Grease stained fingers pointed in diverse directions Yet those monsters we continue to preach have nothing to do With the hate that we have now reached
Happy birthday to ME!!!
I am a year older, with the hopes of becoming a little wise, so the days leading up to my birthday; I am excited, reflective, giddy, and downright grateful. So many blessings in my life, and today I take time to appreciate and take them all in. I won’t get another birthday until next year Lord willing, so the plan is to soak in all the love, and joy this day brings. (My almond coconut cake with white chocolate filling and finish should play a HUGE role in the joy).
I often try to ponder on thoughts as I grow, although the delivery guy asked me yesterday; if I was at least 21 and old enough to sign for a package…I thought I am at least 16… (Even if for the 100th time.)
This year I am pondering on Psalm 90 verse 12, I especially like the New English Translation; it reads “So teach us to consider our mortality, so that we might live wisely” I pray it comes true for me going forward. I pray I open my eyes to the limitless possibilities around me however short life is…I pray more than ever that I fulfill destiny…it is the cry of my heart… it is the deepest desire of my soul.
Today as I mark another year in my blessed life, I ponder on the bible verse shared above, and joyfully celebrate this moment. Thank you all so much for the calls, messages, and outpour of love. I am one loved girl.
Happy birthday to ME!!!
So many names He carries This God To some he is father Faithful, lover, comfort, peace Friend, all of these in one Today In the chaos of my paralyzing faith Doubts and questions about any and everything I ask That he be to me Comfort, Savior, answer and I AM *Happy new month dear friends. May it be for you and yours a wonderful one :).*
I kneel bedside as is custom Each late evening to pray Tonight’s prayer a tad unusual Fatigue laying claim to a major part of me I asked the Savior to come into my heart Make whole this cold heart of stone Selfish and fleshy on its best days I asked that he make it holy Genuinely kind and good Deep slumber and snores overtaking me I asked wearily That He make my heart see & beat truth Now and always Amen
Mother Nature weeps Her eyes of comfort and compassion growing dim Her beloved and children from all corners turning on themselves Turning on her and her beauty Trees cut down Built bridges and bushes burning deep wild and free Devastation and war in the most innocent of places Death on the rise as greed and lust flow free With heavy blood now easily shed Childhood has lost its innocence Old age knows now only disdain Hate is now on the rise as war strides high as power The need to see and hear overcome by guns and drugs Peace now on the back burner Evil and anger Rape and malice Roaming as lords and kings among trees and leaves Whispering deceit blaspheme and incurable incest Humanity is fast dying Love lost in the heart of mankind
Hope is found In these days of anxious doubts In the healing place of prayers My weary soul taking flight Heart and knees bent, Lord in your sight
These flutters Pink and blue butterflies I think they are Lodged between my throat, my gut And my beating soul Begging to be freed At the captivating sight Of you *Hugs and love for a swell weekend*
