USA soldiers pulled out,
Take care of yourselves.

Find peace and comfort
After this long, enduring war.

Your road will begin for
Recovery to your nation.

Your people must be strong
And look forward to a future;

For progress, education and
Law-abiding citizens’ welfare.

Handle With Love

Relationships resemble a rubber band;
They stretch in ways we don’t understand!

At times they’re strong and reliable,
Sometimes they’re weak and very pliable.

When they break, we try to mend them;
As a tailor would finish a hem.

When they are no longer in use,
We always find an excuse.

Always handle each one with proper care;
So they remain firm, avoiding a tear!

I Come to Realize:

That your life is planned out! I knew it since high school—I predicted something that would happen when I reached near a certain age and it did—In fact, I was so ill that my doctor couldn’t sleep for his concern in me. (I had been in intensive care unit for a number of days with heart racing, collapsed lung) As I was healing, he asked, “What keeps me going?”

I told him thru prayers and faith. I was so sick, even watching TV was far from my mind—I only concentrated on getting better—

As I went thru the doorstep of my home, tears rushed down my face—knowing that I just about didn’t have this chance. I realized I had more to do in life. (I had a home health care nurse take care of me for a week or two).

When I went to the surgeon’s office for the health check, my doctor went straight to the waiting area to see my two children (unexpected).  I knew then one reason why I had to live.

Ever since then, I view life at a different angle; for one reason it’s because I’m still here and another reason is that I felt HIS presence and peace during my struggles in this life.

There are signs of his presence to this day; some are able to feel and see it and some cannot see.  But HE does work in our lives; through our heart, mind, and soul if we only allow, notice or pay close attention to it—because He planned it out for us!

Life’s Beauty

Everything in life has its place
      Just as noticeable as a trace.
When we follow along each pace
      We often wonder what we’ll face.
Continuing on as if we’re in a race
      We should take the time to say grace.
Every moment, in any particular case
      Reflects beauty; as flowers in a vase.

Hate is a Strong Word-

I hate you
I hate what you did
I hate what you said
I hate what you have
I hate doing this job
I hate that I have been chosen
I hate that I have a busy day
I hate the weather today
I hate that some are lucky
I hate that some have it easier
I hate this assignment
I hate that person for some reason
I hate to wear this outfit
I hate to go to the party
I hate to hear your side
I hate to ……………

Try Not to Use It!

Warfare Takes a Toll on Nations—It Must Be Stopped!

Conflicts—Talk about the conflict, find the solution, make a change.  Every Nation
           Must be accountable--Make a compromise and stick to it—And very soon!

Economy--Weakens the system of government and society. Money is not moving
           And distribution of produce and goods limited and in chaotic state.

People---They often wonder, What is happening? When will it end?  How can a
         Person live in peace with tension? Are they confused, angry, and bitter?

Destruction-It was built and destroyed in seconds.  Progress and development has
         Been stopped and delayed.  Lives lost and tremendous pain once again.

Emotions—Are the people immune to violence?  Is it a lifestyle for them?
           Does their behavior coincide with the war’s effects? Think on this!

Protection—Are the nation’s police, armed forces protecting the citizens? Do they target 
            The groups that cause violence as terrorists, gangs, crime & hate groups, etc?

Civilized—Are we becoming strong, educated and lawful abiding citizens?  Or is the
           Damages done to our character, our responsibilities and our conscience?

Atmosphere-Nuclear particles leaking in the air.  What will it do to the human
           Body and our future generations?  Will it cause fear and birth defects? 

Weaponry—Is this a cause of power or hatred?  Whatever the use; why cause bloodshed
           To human life?  It’s use was for hunting and protection of citizen’s well-being.

A Sip of Wine

I just took that sip
Of Italian red wine
From a beautiful glass.

My, how tasteful, it
Was on my palate today;
It quenched my thirst.

It gives me a joy after
A long days’ hard work,
Perfect for the evening.

Makes the day complete
When you share it with
The one you truly love!

What Makes Your Life Cloudy?

Is it that you aren’t busy enough?  Maybe you need to work on something?
Find an interest that you can do.  Start small and work up from there.

Is it that you want to improve yourself?  Maybe you need a style that’s you?
Find the clothes and products to enhance.  Start personalizing yourself well.

Is it that you want some character?  Try honesty, trust, and reputation-
Find the traits, status, and morals in you. Develop these qualities to reach it.

Is it that you rely on others?  Try to volunteer for something-
Find the act of helping instead.  Start seeing yourself with strength.

Is it that you don’t understand?  Maybe you need advice from others-
Find someone to answer your question.  Start entries to your bank of knowledge.

Is it that you are in the wrong crowd?  Maybe you need different new friends-
Find people that are similar to you.  Start promoting yourself higher.

Is it that you are anxious or nervous?  Maybe you need more confidence
Find someone with encouragement to help.  Develop abilities within yourself.

Is it that you don’t feel well?  Try walking and being outdoors, too
Find the sun and atmosphere.  Develop healthy eating and lifestyle skills.

Is it that you feel so sad right now?  Try talking it out to someone
Find a support group or person.  Start seeing the sun thru others view.

Bring Back the Sunshine Soon!

Why Does He Blame Me?

I’m living in the life of hate
He feels as though it’s my fault
He lives a self-centered life
When he’s married to a wife.

She feels so sad a lot of times
Thinking there will be a turn-around
A miracle to help things out
But this can’t seem to; no doubt.

It came to pass with this mess
Conflicts became strong with anger
No way can I continue on with this
I have to move away for some bliss.

Living with someone who craves
His drink of alcohol to get his high
Was never pleasant anymore so
He said it was time for me to go.

When He Should Blame Himself—

Why Do You Play With My Heart?

You glanced and stole my heart,
Then your words just filled me-
I became overwhelmed by them.

Feelings of love were enhanced
At each moment of your touch
As your kindness overflowed.

I hear and see you in my mind
When I awake with each morn-
My heart aches for your love.

Tell me why you tug at my heart?
I’m afraid to fall in love with you.
This could be just a lover’s game.

It’s filled with fun and excitement
That lasts for just a brief moment-
And it happens once in a lifetime.
