“I love You, O Lord, my strength”

The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,

My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge;

   My shield and the horn of my salvation,

                      My stronghold.

I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised,

         And I am saved from my enemies.

Hate Burns Purity

hate burns purity

like a blood soaked kiss on snow

left stained until Spring

into the clouds love go

 La Belle Dame sans Merci (Sir Frank Dicksee, 1903)

La Belle Dame sans Merci (Sir Frank Dicksee, 1903)

I called on a king and horse for a ride

to whisk me away past every last cloud

in turn he asked when taking my hand if I’d be his new bride

and rule with him in a far off land where the whole of truth reigns


he mends and shelters my broken heart

until the disease of emptiness within it departs

til  my spirit spills over from the fullness of  loves power

the beast that is famine now  satisfied

his pure heart prevails, into the kind suns warmth we set sail

to a peaceful realm, in the kingdom of  blue and gold towers

a beautiful life we live in promised absolute happiness

entwined forever until the hour that steals our very last breath

Miss you and Thank you Paul Crouch

Now, on Trinity Broadcast Network, is the memorial to Paul Crouch Sr. creator of TBN broadcasting, where it has been for over 40 years reaching and touching the live, of hundreds of millions of people, one of them mine, through 5,000  television stations, 70 satellites, internet and 1,000’s of cable systems around the world, broadcasting into countries bringing the Good News, where no other technological innovations exist.  As of 2010 they are the 3rd largest over the air television group in the country -passing CBS, FOX and NBC. TBN is a relief aid mammouth, and the aid it had inspired  countless other  institutes to create for ..is massive!

He and his wife Jan have been such an inspiration to countless millions, sharing the Good News, bringing millions nothing but good News!!!  They have helped save millions and millions sharing the Gospel in all of its glory and simplicity .

They are very special to me! It has been through the programs they broadcast about the Bible that I learned the  truth! And everyday is a new learning experience with TBN. Watching TBN is like going to Bible College. There is no better a place to learn the Good News! I love Travel The Road ( a Christian reality experience) Drive Through History (Awesome!) with Dave Stotts, Billy Grahams Always Good News, Not a Fan with Kyle Idleman, Turning Point with Dr. David Jeremiah, In  Touch Ministries with Dr.Charles Stanley (love his NO Nonsense sermons!) Joel Osteen, Joyce Meyers, and soo many more shows to numerous to name, along with Music Video stations, and all of the awesome movies and other programs they broadcast!  This is the only feel-good-all of the time station, it is the only station that has what every human needs.

It has been very emotional for me, learning this news of last Saturday. It is emotional watching this tonight. He was a friend coming into your home every night with the daily news he shared with his son. It is very odd seeing Paul and knowing there won’t be any more broadcasts with him live.

Miss you and Thank You,

Dr. Paul Crouch Sr.


One Life To Lead


You Don’t Have To Let Yourself Be Terrorized By Other People’s

Expectations Of YOU.”

Sue Patton Thoele

Author of The Courage To Be Yourself

Waking Up

you pushed me so far

wanting me to end up right where you are

bloody and bleeding in absolute misery

I had no idea the game was so easy

broken, lost, flying high

I was dying just to feel alive

I was so blind and did not see

the One with the power

was always beside me

now here I am

reborn again

made new in Him

you all stabbed me

then  blamed me

played me in your seedy schemes

you left me with demons and laughed at the scene

deep in darkness heavy within pain

that is when I had everything to gain

I found His strength

the power of the only One

now what has started

can never be undone

now here I am

reborn again

made new in Him

He is everything you can never be

I see all  your foolishness

all the lies and deceit you reaped upon me

I’ve no more anger because I know what’s true

and  He, yes, will  even save you

wake up and see

and have courage enough to just beleive

Waiting within a Kiss

Your breath upon my neck
warms the chill settling within my bones
the universe quiets itself
wrapping all of its brilliance around us

A hundred years of living seem to be
pressed together within a single kiss
your smile stretches across
the millions of glistening stars above
fading into a comfortable velvet darkness

It’s here I wait for you

Daily prompt: Unconventional Love

Unconventional is defined as deviating from the norm. Something or someone that doesn’t fall in line with majority thought, act, belief or habit.
Unconventional love just may be the norm these days. When it comes to falling in love with another human, people have strayed so far from how that experience was defined for a millennium. Your born, you grow, you are paired with one person and you love them for eternity.
Love is no longer reserved for that one outstanding amazing moment when you give your heart to some one that will hold it and keep it safe until you both die. Now people give their most prize possession away over and over again to various kinds of dubious people each time receiving it back a little smaller than before.
And unless you are one of the few who were taught all about love and who have been lucky enough to find your true love right at the start….
I’d say love today, sadly, is very unconventional and that seems to be accepted as the norm.
