Endurance

Don't like your friends.

Of course I want to be with you,

But as long as it is just us two,

Sorry, but I don't like your friends,

And yes I know I don't even know them,

But I know you and that's all I'll need,

So I'll ask you once, cause I'm not one to plead,

Requirements: you're hormones and my novice hands,

And strong wrists, to rip up our big plans,

We'll be join at the hip,

And I'll make sure you never slip,

Trust me darling you won't need them,

Your pushy friends.

Just me just you,

Just us two.

As The Days Go By

Candidly blended,

Carefully sifted,

To a sea change

Only the winds know where to blow.



Splendidly crafted,

Thoughtfully lifted,

Our hearts starved for love,

We get closer as the days go by.



Beautifully made,

Genuinely embedded,

Emotions of blissful state

Keep us closely intimate.



We don’t need to doubt;

We get to quench the drought,

Of loveless years, alone and forlorn.

Shall we drench it in joyful tears?



We are blessed after the long wait;

We reaped the blessing of hope.

We are rewarded by our endurance;

Happiness is ours to the end.



(Dodavah, gbraigh, Melita)

I'm Here

My life almost ended the other night

by my own hand.

I just couldn't seem to find

anymore strength left to stand.

When I felt this I told a friend,

and this is what he said to me...



I'm here to help you stand

you can lean on me.

Don't you see Jesus reachin' out his hand

just like he did for me.



When you left I thought my life ended

it came crashing to a stop.

Now a broken heart needs to be mended

because I fell from the top.

And then I see Jesus there standing

reminding me what my friend told me...



I'm here to help you stand

you can lean on me.

Don't you see Jesus reachin' out his hand

just like he did for me.

Man you have to remember how it felt for you

when you saw me there.

God sent me to help you remember

that someone does care...



So now when I think of it

I think of how I felt

as I stood there watching my brother

face his own death.

Now I look at him and I see

the strength he has left...



I'm here to help you stand

you can lean on me.

Don't you see Jesus reachin' out his hand

just like he did for me.



I see Jesus standing here

ready to carry me as I take his hand

I realize I'm just a man...

and he says



I'm here to help you stand

you can lean on me.

Don't you see I'm holdin' out my hand

like the Father did for me.

I'm never gonna let you go,

so come and rest in me.

I'm here to help you man,

so please believe in me...

Starting Over

Starting Over



by Peggikaye Eagler



Starting over is very hard, if it was easy, everyone would do it without hesitation. If it was easy, the Bible wouldn't be full of people who had to start over. God had to give us example after example after example of people who started over.



Adam and Eve had to start over after the Garden.

Moses had to start over after he slayed the Egyptian.

Moses had to start over when God called him back to free his people from slavery.

Abraham had to start over in a new land.

Abraham had to start over being a father after decades.

Abraham had to start over after messing up and having ason through his wife's handmaiden.

Ruth & Naomi had to start over after their husband's died.

Job had to start over after he lost everything.

David had to start over after he'd been a simple shephard boy.

David had to start over when he was being chased by King Saul.

David had to start over again when he became King.

Jonah had to start over after being eaten by a whale.

The Disciples had to start over after their Lord was crucified.

Paul had to start over after he'd been persecuting the Christians.

Paul had to start over after he'd been in prison.

Paul had to start over after he'd been in prison.

Paul had to ..ok, you get that point.



We look at starting over and we all know everyone has to start over and that God understands it ...but do we really know that GOD UNDERSTANDS IT!!????????

So much so that he filled his Word to us showing us example after example after example of people who are starting over time and time and time again?



One thing remains constant in all those start overs ...God remains the same. His love for us is first last and always.

His mercy is new every morning ... for every new start, his mercy is there.

The Will To Endure, The Strength To Go On

Folder: 
2006

Endurance.



The will, the need to go on. To keep going.



Walk on,

rather than be walked on



Know your Strength



feel it in every muscle



feel it in every bone



In every thought that goes unchecked

by some

overlord



the self control to



not let



your self

and others



down.



That is Strength.

Test of Faith

I am so close to the edge, I can feel myself starting to fall. Everyone and everything has backed me up into a corner and there is no escape. No time to think, no time to breathe, no time to heal. It's like a wall of frustration is crumbling down on me and I am trapped. I am scratching, and pawing, and kicking and screaming to get out but to no prevail. I look up and ask WHY? Why choose me to suffer when I have done nothing but good? Why choose to burden me when I have enough to deal with already? I know this is a test. A test of faith. Let's see if I will break. Let's see if I can climb over that wall of the devil. But unfortunately Lord, I feel I can't make it. I don't believe I can overcome these obstacles. They are winning and I am slowly falling to my defeat. I hear your voice but just can't seem to follow and make my way through. Please help me because I am no longer able to make it in this battlefield. Hear my cries and and take my hand. Pull me through Lord, pull me through.  

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Sometimes God does things that you may not understand. But what we have to realize is that it's not made for us to understand, it's made for us to embrace and learn it. That is a test of our faith and commitment to the Lord. Yea, it may seem like the world is against you, but like the Bible says, "If you kneel to God, you can stand up to anything". Remember, God works in mysterious ways...

Can't Take That Away

Folder: 
Inspiration

Mariah Carey-



They can say,

Anything they want to say,

Try to bring me down,

But I will not allow,

Anyone to succeed hanging clouds over me,

And they can try,

Hard to make me feel that I,

Don't matter at all,

But I refuse to falter in what I believe or loose faith in my dreams



Cause there's,

There's a light in me,

That shines brightly,

They can try,

But they can't take that away from me

From me



Oh they,

They can do,

Anything they want to you,

If you let them in,

But they won't ever win,

If you cling to you pride, and just push them aside,

See I, I have learned,

There's an inner peace I own,

Something in my soul that they cannot possess

So I won't be afraid and the darkness will fade



Cause there's,

There's light in me me,

That shines brightly, yes

They can try,

But they can't take that away from me



No, no

They can't take this,

Precious love I'll always have inside me,

Certainly the Lord will guide me where I need to go



They can say,

Anything they want to say,

Try to bring me down,

But I won't face the ground,

I will rise steadily sailing out of their reach,

Oh Lord they do try,

Hard to make me feel that I,

Don't matter at all,

But I refuse to falter,

In what I believe or loose faith in my dreams,

Cause there's a light in me,

That shines brightly



They can try

But they can't take that away from me...

Author's Notes/Comments: 

This is Mariah Carey's anthem and it certainly has become mines.

Sisyphean

The earth turns to mud underneath my feet

Without footing I slide further down the hill

It’s a hike that I am destined to repeat

While futilely grasping at a blue and white pill



I dig my heels deep hoping for traction

Fighting to regain true satisfaction

I spit on helping hands reaching out from the dark

Returning to my goal alone I embark



An impossible dream awaits at the summit

Again I slip and my body plummets

Why do I subject myself to disgrace?

I know I'm in love but I can’t see her face

TILL DEATH DO US PART

Folder: 
aglow with love

You were filled to overwhelmingness

You never considered for a moment

All I want is to be with him ,

You muttered

Lost you were in that love, blinded as well

Then the yeaars began to roll

And the changes took their toll

He will change was your empathy

To sympathise with yourself

No not him today orr never

In agony worn and thin

You sought a split

But he wouldn't budge

Stuck to you thicker than leech

You're lost

Hope's newrising for him

And you wanted out

What's happening to me

LOST in the ponder

You're left in the wonder

Till death do us part

Brings inot your life.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Marriage is a life long affair that goes up and down the hill. It springs surprises sometimes living a distasteful fragrance on you.
