Keeping Dreams Alive

White and yellow turn mellow
before fading to gray
How to keep a dream alive
from day to day
If I find the secret
I will surely let you know
There is hope all around
if you never let it go-----
this cloud was in the shape of a perfect star but by the time I grabbed the camera it had changed slightly.

Life is certainly interesting. Her first day of school and she lost her first tooth. Bless her heart.

There is still much goodness around

people who care

to take the time

to help someone

they haven't met

to help lift

others up

to help them gain

confidence and feel


to help break through

past barriers

so they can

rise to their potential

What lies ahead

I'm peaceful

but curious

as to what the road

will show

the way I need to go

I'll wait until

I know

please let it be clear

so my heart will hear

I'm listening

Ice Cream and Love

Okay, Cara must think like I write. Is that a good thing???

Yesterday, I took her to McDonalds for a sundae and she said "Mama, icecream is like sprinkling a little love on your heart"...

embracing change

change is scary because

it is uncertain

we don't know

what lies ahead

all we can do is

stay true

try to follow

the peace path

and trust

trust that God

put the steps

in our hearts

before we could

even walk

Things look good today
alternate between the before and after
Is there something more
waiting is the lesson
patience with time
follow the pathway
stay in line
Keep focused

Conversation with God

I know I am blessed but I also am picking up that I am missing something that I should be listening to......this is my poem to God

but what is the path

you say it is there

and you say I'll know it

but I can't see

what is blocking my vision

why can't I sense what is ahead

it's there

but the distance blocks

the view

a Sign

I was in the van alone yesterday.

I was feeling a sad feeling.

I asked God to give me some peace

and I looked up

in the sky was

a cloud in the shape

of a white dove

the picture doesn't do it

justice because by the

time I got home

the shape had changed

a little

God will provide signs of peace

for us all

I still try to figure things out

things that don't seem

to have a logical answer

things that makes some feel helpless

like a leaf being carried by a current

what can one grasp

what is real enough

to grab hold and hang on

I don't know

She is

the angel of healing hearts....

Saturday, July 5, 2008


Sometimes you have to imagine

yourself out of your box

before you can actually

get there

you have to feel it in your heart

then you will have

the courage to

make a change

Happy 4th of July!!!

We are very blessed here in the USA!!

Listen with your heart

Listen to the quiet

there is always a voice

it can be

heard in your heart

God will use it

to show you the way

the quiet brings the wisdom

use your gifts

share the peace

with those who

need it
