Undescribable Love

Distractions are abundant,
my mind is lead astray.
Yearning for a happy life,
to live another day.

Attention directed elsewhere,
my focus pulled away.
Help me Lord I’m begging You,
to push these thoughts away.

To love You Lord is not enough,
I know You understand.
I need You to consume my life,
as no other can.

In love with You I want to be,
consumed by all You are.
To feel You in the air I breathe,
let the seconds become hours.

A life for You I long to live,
my heart so filled with love.
So thankful for Your loving grace,
my omniscient God above.

Dedicated to my friend Zach. May you find peace in your journey. 

To Find My Way


Take my thoughts and harness them,
in Your loving hands.
Allowing those against Your will,
to fall into the sand.

My flesh is aching for Your love,
I know how much You care.
Distractions of this earthly place,
my solace isn’t there.

A joy inside my heart,
I long to feel once more.
Fill me with Your spirit Lord,
as You have before.

Apologies I send Your way,
I hang my head in shame.
Help me Lord to find the path,
Your will be filled again.

Why Not Both?

Feeling pulled in many ways,
a struggle deep within.
I need Your help to guide my path,
where do I begin?

No time to stop and feel the sun,
or see the flowers bloom.
To hear the birds in song so sweet,
Your beauty to consume.

Excuses made at why to stay,
a job I know so well.
An obligation to so many,
disappointment overwhelms.

A volunteer with good intentions,
excited at the start.
As time goes by I feel the stress,
it fills my aching heart.

I long to find a mountain stream,
enjoy the steady flow.
Or find a beach to watch the waves,
and feel the warm winds blow.

Taking time for others,
is not the problem here.
Making time for me,
I shed a selfish tear.

When I meet you face to face,
will I look You in the eye?
Or bow my head in the shame,
a life I can’t deny.

Pulled

The inner battle rages,
swaying to and fro.
My mind and body aching,
tired of fighting so.

My strength is in my weakness,
of this to be reminded.
He holds me in His hands,
yet I remain blinded.

Soon it will be clear,
the path which I should take.
With His gentle guidance,
a decision I must make.

Everyday Valentine

Valentine’s is here again,
expectations are set high.
In my home another day,
let me tell you why.

Instead of buying flowers,
he goes to work each day.
Providing for his family,
who he prays for every day.

He also cleans the house,
the yard stays nice and neat.
Mending leaky faucets,
no dish left in the sink.

The weekend rolls around,
exhausted from the week.
Still he takes the time,
to make the day so sweet.

So keep your store bought flowers,
the candy I don’t need.
I wouldn’t trade a single day,
so thankful you chose me.

Dedicated to the man I know will always be there for me no matter what.
I love you Kevin Pritt ♡

Would We Be Different? 

​If Jesus were standing beside us every second of every day, would we:

  1. Say things differently?
  2. Do things differently?
  3. React differently?

I think we would.

Some children have imaginary friends.
As children of Christ, He is our friend and lives within us.

Challenge:

Imagine Him standing beside you every second of every day and see how your life changes.

A Young Legacy

We’ve mourned as a dear friend has ascended to Heaven beginning his life anew.  While happy he no longer suffers, our hearts ache in his absence. 

As he walks with Jesus, we think about how he touched our lives in the brief time we knew him. 

Although my family knew him for only a few short years, he left an impression of a lifetime. 

We knew him as a father figure. He was the person to know in the nursing home. As we sat around the table last Sunday night sharing memories, we laughed,  we cried, and our hearts were warmed.

Marion Young was a vital part of strangers becoming friends. He greeted new residents and made them feel at home. He got them out of their rooms and participating in activities. 

He was laid to rest today in full military honor. He would have been so proud. Now his memory will continue in our hearts and our minds. He now knows first hand “How Great Thou Art”.
