I Am Your Daughter and You Know Me

By |June 9th, 2014|

Dear Lord, I am your daughter
You know my weaknesses, my strengths, my temptations
You know my fears, my concerns, my worries
You know my dreams, my needs, my desires

I ask you Lord to take me higher
I ask you Lord that in everything I do,
you’ll see me through

I come to you with an open heart
So it is […]

Did I Forget?

By |April 12th, 2013|

Did I forget

my kids are awesome

my husband is great

I am beautiful

if not too late

 

Still have my life

my life to live

so much to do

so much to give

 

Did I forget

the many ways I’m blessed

to focus on what’s good

and forget about the rest

 

Did I forget

I’ve got talent

there’s so much I could do

Lord, did I forget to look up

keep […]

Each Their Own Gift

By |April 12th, 2013|

I watched them in awe

the roles they play

making a difference in our lives,

day by day

 

Each playing a part

Their own puzzle piece

Without them things wouldn’t run as smoothly,

not in the least

 

But what they are doing

They’re just doing their due

without a single clue

to what it is they do

 

They play a special part

they just didn’t know

that without their […]

The Awful Truth

By |January 6th, 2012|

I wish it didn’t have to be me

I don’t want to say these things

Especially when I think of the heartache this brings

 

I know you trust me and love me

You’ll probably think I am cruel

Trust me; cruelty is not my intended route

Honestly, I think you are a jewel

 

A jewel that has lost her shine

and needs to […]

Overweight

By |January 4th, 2012|

I’m overweight

I know

And I hate it

 

My body

I can’t stand to look at it

 

I’m overweight

I know

And I just can’t take it

 

It drives me crazy

When in the mirror I see

My belly fat looking back at me

 

I’m getting older and my body looks the part

I need a change, but where to start?

 

It’s hard to change this lifestyle

Living the […]

Superwoman

She….

She is so beautiful and elegant

So fit and healthy

She is a wonderful wife

She always knows what to do in all situations

 

She is educated

And have brilliant conversations

She is not shy

She is confident and strong

She is wise

She is an inspiration

 

She is a leader

She stands up for […]

On Paper

By |January 3rd, 2012|

Technically on paper I’m not worth much

No college degree, no trophies to touch

No Gold medals, Bronze or Silver

Technically, I haven’t accomplished a great deal on paper

 

I’m not that qualified or rich for that matter

Not all that educated nor that celebrated

On paper qualifications and accomplishments are what matters

Thank goodness by God’s standards that is not how […]

I Have Changed the World

By |February 28th, 2010|

I have changed the world with my smile

My smile have made someone else smile

Whose smile made another person smile

And that other person’s smile has made even more people smile

My smile has created a ripple effect of many smiling people

I mean this world needs as many smiling people as it could get

to make it shine

 

I have […]

Already in love

Already in love

Already in love

Falling in love

With the breeze in the trees

Confidence

By |February 28th, 2010|

A little confidence can go a long way

It is amazing how a little bit of confidence

can change your whole day

 

I pray for more confidence

A stronger self esteem

I repeat positive words of affirmation

Now it seems

 

I’ve done the right thing to not let the devil,

past sins or my low self-esteem win

Now I know if I keep fighting […]
