Love drama, art, photography, writing, music, and so much more, but most of all I love my Jesus, my family, my friends, and serving in His Kingdom anyway I can. Been married to Alan since August 2, 1975. Have 2 wonderful, godly, talented sons, and 6 beautiful grandchildren. I am a Survivor. I have had 88 surgeries and death has been at my door. I was on ventilators and feeding tubes part of summer 2012. All the doctors said it was a miracle I survived

It's so cold here without you,
No sun to warm my face
My heart is so heavy
It beats with unsyncappated pace.

This wilderness through which I travel
Is desolate, dark and bare
I search for a glimmer of hope
But no light can I find there.

I've been in this place before
Somewhere between night and dawn's light
A Twilight zone of the soul
That steals your will to fight.

The darkness overwhelms me.
Imprisoning my heart and mind
I search for a way to escape
Unsure of what I might find.

As I seek, there in the distance
A sliver of light begins to glow
My soul hungers for it
The closer I get it, the brighter it grows.

And then I see you there standing
The same place where I left you behind
You were there patiently waiting
For me to return to your side.

Now you dispell the darkness around me
Your love shines warmth upon my cheeks
Your light brings color to the grayness
Your presence deeply to my soul now speaks.

Thank you Lord, for leading me from the abyss
Waiting for me with loving arms to embrace
Being the light in my soul's darkness
Shining your love upon my face.

Keep me now close beside you
Help to wander from you no more
Till eternity calls me home
To be with you on heaven's golden shore.

Lately I've been dwelling on unfulfilled dreams
Things not accomplished, goals not yet achieved
Bucket list: not one crossed off, insurmountable debt
My mind in constant turmoil, it never seems to rest
And now my heart feels heavy, I'm restless and discontent
Emotional, angry, anxious, discouraged, depressed


God, this is not how that I want to be
Reach way down in my heart
Graft your peace in me
Pour your healing oil to soothe and calm my soul
Let your effervescent Spirit heal and make me whole
Rebuild the walls of my mind the Enemy has broken through
Mortar it with Your Word and with the Character of You
Repair the gaps where the Deceiver planted thoughts of dissatisfaction and resent
Replace it with a hunger and thirst for righteousness 
For everything the Devourer has taken from me 
Forgive me that I let him, please restore it tenfold back to me.
Make me more aware that complacent I won't be
Fill me now with strength and power to daily fight the Enemy
There is a war in the heavenlies that affects my heart and mind 
And the Enemy is raging because he's running out of time
This Spiritual fight I'm in may  sometimes wear on me
And I may lose a battle but I've already won the final victory 
So burn your Word on my heart, set my soul afire
Let my love for You and Yours be my main desire

Life's not like a box of chocolates, but more like a tin of hard candies: some broken, crushed, or stuck together yet so good you don't care
