Chapter One

Inspirational

A change has occurred Deep down inside of me I feel the Lord's presence Growing deeper inside of me I love him and profess it To all who will listen to me It seems very simple To live this life to me For Jesus is the one And only savior to me Some days they are trying That is to say the least But take some time to bow your head And troubles will be released I know we all are guilty Of taking on to much But with the Lord's presence Its all just dust to dust Can you feel the presence Of the Lord in your heart He loves us when we praise him And surrender all our hearts The tingling of your body And the deep thudding in your heart His anointing is upon you So you might as well surrender your heart These words they keep on flowing Sometimes I'm not sure from where But deep down in my soul I haven't released them all yet So please bear with me While I can't control the flow But if I don't release these words My little mind will blow The wind was blowing fiercely The boat about to flip The sailors were down on their Knees begging forgiveness The lightening flashed across the sky The rain in buckets fell The airplane landed softly The pilot whispered a prayer Can you guess the moral to this story? Get down on your knees I love my Lord And practice it Be it day or night The little children Sing and praise him Sometimes in their sleep all night Jesus is our savior Spread the news its true For all who come to serve him Heavens gates await you Can you touch it Can you feel it I don't know but I've been told It grabs you and then releases you You become a different person Both from out and in So who wouldn't want the spirit Jesus is knocking Let him in Can you feel your heart beating It rings a tune sometimes Thump thump or God loves Sometimes it sounds the same Our God and savior loves us So when we hear this tune We should rejoice and praise him For God loves us this is true Here I sit so all alone But wait am I still For you can feel a presence Of peace and love about the room Just close your eyes And whisper his name You see Jesus is always near God has a special plan For all of us to fill But we have to listen For him to whisper in our ear Then we must obey him And carry out his plan For in God's plan: If I listen and obey I am heaven bound I feel a longing Spirit It calls to me I hear Its warmth and gentle kindness Are present when I'm near The voice is filled with sweetness Listen do you hear

Chapter Two

My Children

I have a brown eyed daughter She is beautiful and warm She has a personality That spreads her warmth and charm I know God wants to use her He tells me every day So father please fall upon her And bless her in your way Mommy and Daddy love you This is simple and very true If you really can't believe it Then let me tell you with some words Let's start at the beginning 26 years ago You were such a pleasant baby And what a loving little girl Then came your teens with all the tears Now you are a beautiful woman With a warm and welcoming smile Who loves her little babies The same way Mommy and Daddy love you Today it starts All will be new Don't look behind you And you won't be blue So this is day 2 Can you feel it all new The sky is clear Your big day is near You can not dwell On things in the past Hold your shoulders back And a weight is soon cast Hurray Hurray I feel it at last My day is coming Here lays a clear path Your 30 today And I know how it feels A bad day down deep But wait here it is Your family loves you Your path is so clear Who is this beautiful woman With her heart oh so pure You're a knock out its true And I love you my dear My family has grown today What a blessing to bestow For we are all God's children And you know what we are told Be fruitful and to multiply But wait no hurry yet For you need time to be alone And we all need time to rest You both will be happy For this I am told Continue to walk in God's way And the rest shall unfold To: Bobbi and Jeremy Today it begins your life as man and wife So breath in and out One step at a time The music has played The vows have been spoken Hugs and kisses all around More toast ring aloud Out the door you both go To make your new way The circle is complete All my love to my Baby Girl I will tell you this And you know it is true Are you listening baby I sure do love you I will hold you in my arms And squeeze you so tight Are you listening baby I sure do love you And when you get big Not to much for me Are you listening baby I sure do love you And when I am old Not to much for you Are you listening baby Tee Tee sure does love you Degan is our pride and joy He is a special little boy He makes our hearts go pitter pat His eyes so bright and yet so dark His laughter loud and echoing His dimples deep and wide He waves and says come on in And listen to me sing To Degan Look at you Your already 2 Eyes so big and bright Like a star shining in the night You touch me to my core I love you forever more Your three today This special day When all around Our hearts pound I love you baby No way maybe Really I love you baby Look at your smile It won't take a while I can see you're so sweet Those dimples in your cheeks I love you so much Seems like yesterday God blessed us with your face When you laugh out loud We are all so proud I love you so much Hugs and kisses and a whole bunch There is a new little baby in town He really has made a big splash all over town There are bottles and diapers and powder everywhere A really funny smell and red face real tears and so much noise Now there is much love from big brother it's true So you're his new toy he will give you a squeeze The rocking chair never stops or so it seems With big brother and new baby there is so much love to receive There was a little boy Jace Levi was his name Playing with all his toys Was really all his game He gives you hugs and kisses When he wants to: you know But he will melt your heart Without trying this is so Hurray you are three And now I can see What the world will soon be That bright smile you light up Your so little and hold so much Someone loves you its true Can you feel it I know I will squeeze you some more I have two baby boys I love them with all my soul The oldest one Degan will Win you over no joke The youngest one Jace takes A little to warm up But when they smile and hug you The battle has been won For the love you feel will Wash over you and all your soul My baby's gone and left me She sees her way quite clear She knows her mommy loves her So she has nothing ever to fear Ashley Renee has a sweet spirit That Jesus has instilled She shows great love and tenderness To those below her knees The children have her heart Along with Jesus Christ Thank you God for giving me A gentle soul with such a big heart Mothers have a special place In God's eyes I read We love our babies and nurture them It is God's way you see A special place awaits you He promised this you know So all the love you have given Is waiting to be returned Another year has passed Were does the time go I have a special place In my heart for you it is so Your are a gift from heaven God told me this is so Your gentleness and kindness Shine from within So God says to tell you Let it glow again The Lord gave me a gift On my own special day He told me to guard you And treasure you everyday Your smile is oh so bright It makes your whole face smile Your are my special day baby Your heart is oh so pure You have become a beautiful woman Way down deep in your soul Today is the day Your 25 okay Life can be so good It really really should Can you believe what you were told That you would start to feel so old Live every moment to the fullest And enjoy being the youngest I love you don't forget it Your present well you will get it I know you will love this book As only the bride can feel Do you realize you're getting married And everything will soon change You know how much I love you Your happiness is for sure You love the Lord with all your heart And because he is first with you still To Ashley on her wedding day I remember when you were only two And look at you now Can you believe you're all grown up And look it's your wedding day You are a beautiful bride On the inside and beaming out Your heart is made of gold And those who know you are sold I love you my little baby Even though you're married and a big girl today You'll always be mommy's baby My heart is so full and I love you too Ashley and Brad's wedding Here I stand to make this toast I really want to make it the most I am suppose to say nice things And make it all so welcoming For all of you who know me well It isn't far off for me to yell So I'll say this once to both of you Love and respect each other And all will be well Here is a little money Just a drop in the bucket for sure But with it can bring happiness Or even several tears You see it really is a true thing That money can't buy love But if you use it wisely It can bring lots of joy I know you have been together Long enough to know You both have to smile Even when you want to run I have a new little Baby My love just over flows He gives me a wonderful feeling From my head down to my toes So soft and warm and cuddly Babies just have a certain glow So hug them kiss them and love them The don't stay Babies for long And I will let him know That Tee Tee loves Braxtyn so BRAXTYN ELI: My little man With a big grin You're so loving I am still discovering The warmth of your touch I love you so much Your eyes are so blue Only the sky will match them too Just so you'll know and remember it I'll whisper in your ear You are a gift from God To be loved by us all And then there were three Do you see what I mean? Can it really be true? That I have three little boys To love and forever hold I'll watch as they grow It gives me much hope Soon their spirits will soar Those three little boys And I do so adore May the Lord's blessing be bestowed On my three little boys My children are all raised But no time for empty nest I rush and rush to fill the needs Of every one but myself I admit I do grow weary But time for this no more For the grandbabies are knocking On the glass of the back door

Chapter Three

All about ME Will anyone remember me When I am gone from here It's really not that important When I realize what the Lord Has done for me But still I wonder you see My favorite color The way I laugh Or even the way I smell You see it's not important For I shall be in heaven Some day and I know this to be true For if you remember nothing else He died for me and you This is my story Simple it may be Can you follow the teardrops For they will lead you through I will try not to bore you Or bring you down with fear Although with my family Either one is near I will start in the beginning For there was only one And then there came another So the story doest begun I love them for we need to Some others need it more For when we are around them To us they show more Have you ever heard a story And forgot the words to tell That happened to me today And I wondered did I just forget This could be a funny story If it wasn't so so true -oops Did I forget and write so times two I'm sure this story has an end I haven't come up with it yet Or wait did I forget I have so much to say Where does one really start I guess my best bet is Straight from my own true heart I can't always find the words Because somewhere they lost their meaning Just know I love you true And always forever with so much feeling I have a gift This is true A God given talent To be used The words I hear Whispered in my ear He wants to spread His word about Of his great love Offered up to us all He says close your eyes And you will feel His warmth and kindness Will surround you for real I have a purpose in life A job I need to fulfill The Lord has guided me gently Now it's time I can tell He says LET'S GO MY CHILD DO YOUR JOB AND WELL For I love the Father And pray to please him so Smelling sweet and looking chic What more could a girl want Her heart is pure and she knows to smile This covers up what's really down deep Relationships have come and gone But near a tear was shed For she's searching still For the one true love to keep I know this girl I have walked in her shoes Everyone who knows her says it is true you see She found her true love it's very clear That her heart skipped a beat The spirit it comes over me I feel it down to my toes The warmth and loving feeling Washes over all my soul I love to sing his praises He hears us all you know So raise your voice to Heaven The love is there it's so My Lord makes it so easy To reach and touch him for real He is waiting there in Heaven With arms open wide I see him - he is there Today I close my eyes And hope fills my heart I pray for a healing Of spiritual revealing I feel it come upon me The chills just flow and flow My breath becomes rapid And yet calmness is bestowed The praises flow from my mouth My body shivers all about The Spirit has fallen upon me And the Lord has sealed my fate The love I feel no word can tell But trust him and you will receive him As well I have to tell you This is so great I am a Christian Can you relate The peace and love From deep within To know my father What joy it has been What do you think about me But wait do I care The Lord beamed down around me And whispered in my ear He tells me to be calm For my loved ones are drawn near I can feel his loving spirit Around me his arms ever clear He spreads his warmth to all Who open up their hearts So lift our voice up to the Lord And Heaven is your reward

Chapter Four

My Husband To you: who has no clue What it's like to be wanted From my point of view I remember your wink Even from afar To tingle from a brush of your touch To feel your fingers touch my hair My body went limp from your touch I have serious issues you see with insecurity I've had a lifetime to deal with them And still they haunt me You see my daddy left me And boyfriends came and went But then came you And down on my knees I fell I didn't even care that you Didn't love me for real Anything just to be near you I swear And you were with me sometimes So I must be important to someone right And as it goes you will see My hiding from this man and the truth I chose to stay with you Through all the drinking years Even believed you when you said You weren't with anyone else Even when you told me you were and All the bad details The phone calls at all hours The girls at all the bars I still chose to be with you Because you wanted me right You see when I hide I don't Have to face this man and the truth So see when we argue I have real issues at hand I need to work them out But it gets to out of hand So I'll keep it bottled up inside Because I'm afraid you'll leave me again So do I want to know the truth I don't know if I can You see when I hide I don't Have to face this man and the truth You keep things from me You even said it was so And this much I know is true They will take you from me again You see the trouble lies deep within But when I try to talk You turn it all from me And back to yourself I have to work this out I know For you see it's killing me I even have daydreams of my family without me You see when I hide I don't Have to face this man and the truth I need for someone to love me For real and forever true You know here's an idea I have What if you said you do I can't let my guard down ever Because I know what then Even when you look them in the eye They leave you again and again
