Too soon

This world has become so desensitized of violence…

until it strikes home.

This week this hit home yet again for our family…

It breaks my heart to say that this past weekend we lost a beautiful young lady to an act of violence.

A beautiful young soul in the brink of living a full life, has been taken from this world.

Lord we know not your ways, but our hearts know that the sadness and void that is left by a loved one cannot be replaced or healed, but only you can provide the peace and comfort to sustain the days ahead.

Violence in any form, in this world should not be deemed acceptable, what are we teaching our kids, are we teaching them love, kindness, gentility, or are we too busy to care?

Because I cannot imagine that when you see your little 4 year old child, you can imagine them committing some crime and ending another’s life and being ok with it. Would you wish that upon your child, that another decides their fate?

We must make a point to show, teach and learn love, kindness, gentility, peace, we must instill this in our lives, so that it may radiate and touch those around us. Can we change everyone, everywhere it is unlikely, but WHAT if we made a bigger impact than they made on us.

Shouldn’t Good still conquer evil, shouldn’t Love conquer hate, and peace overcome War.

Lord let us bring forth change.

To love.

When you find someone special, you hold onto them, because finding someone we see as special is a very rare gift.
When you find this, you cherish it, you protect it, you guard it.
When things come Along to bring change, when you have found love, you find yourself being brave in light of impacts to your own gains. In times when the easy answer is don’t do it, but where the right answer is go for it, you find sacrificing your selfish regards and pushing for the interest of the one you love. Because in love we have to give and take, we have to learn to break our comfort zones and, we learn to be free together. Life brings decisions and often fear controls our thoughts, but sometimes courage from one of us can cover both of us.be courageous take a leap and jump.

To my love.
I may not always be  courageous,I may be too rational,but if there is anything I’ve learned from being in love with you, its that taking chances sometimes brings us to our greatest joys and successes. You are a special person, I love and believe in you a hundred percent. Great things will come this year for us, may this be a first step

Go for it baby, everything that’s meant to be will work for good.

Swept away…

Once upon a time….
There lived a simple girl…
She did not live material things,
She sought out more than diamond rings.
She didn’t need gold or flashy jewels,
She didn’t need getaways at five star spots…
The only desire in her heart was to find love…
To be swept away by the goodness and the beauty that love bestows.
To find joy in the small free pleasures of life…
To be loved unlike anything she’d ever felt in her life….

To dream of being swept away in her heart… To deeply feel loved, appreciated, valued, cherished.

A dream I still dream today, when will I again be swept away.

To have someone who knows not only the bad side, but lives to bring out the good.someone to support me and push me to face myself and move to new challenges. When will I again feel swept away by love and beauty….
