Precious Gift

I have a very precious gift
Don’t touch it
Until I give it to you
Don’t shake it
Until I give it to you
Don’t peek
Until I give it to you
Don’t unwrap it
Until I give it to you
Don’t squeeze it
Until I give it to you
It’s very special and it’s for your eyes only
I need you to take good care of it for the rest of your life
I will give it to you on your wedding day
My gift to you will be my daughter or son
I take good care of them
I pray for them
I feed them
I look after them
I protect them
I teach them
I love them
I do everything for them
I expect you to do the same
I will be coming after you!

Do not stir up nor awaken love Until it pleases.
Song of Solomon 8:4

Who Am I

I am a child of God
I am chosen
I am forgiven
I am covered by the blood of Jesus
I am a bride
I am called
I am justified
I am sanctified
I am redeemed
I am sealed
I am cleansed
I am complete
I am a daughter of a King
I am an ambassador
I am an heir
I am holy
I am blameless
I am righteous
I am above reproach
I am adopted
I am saved
I am loved
I am a saint
I am being conformed daily

 Jesus asks, “Who do you say I am?”

He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" Peter answered and said to Him, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."

I Bring Good Tiding

What great news to know that my Savior was born for me
To save me from my sins, He is one God in three
God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit,
The good news is that He’s alive, I believe it
 He made away for me to be with Him, that’s what I crave
All I need to do is believe in His name and I shall me saved
Jesus is LORD, let’s worship Him, and give Him Thanks
I have joy in Him, one day we will all bow down in ranks
Ten thousand times ten thousand and thousands of thousands,
Saying in a loud voice,
“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
To receive power and riches and wisdom,
And strength and honor and glory and blessing!”
Father, I come here expressing
My love to You, I worship You and only You
Because You are the one and only true
God, Christ the Lord, my Savior

"For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”
Luke 2:11

Born For a Reason

Jesus was born for a purpose, a reason
Some accused Him of high treason
He was born to be our Savior
Friend, Teacher, LORD, and Superior
He came to serve, not to be served
 Praise and worship He deserved
He gave His life for us
Satan attacked, nevertheless
He was obedient to death
 He took His last breath
And is sitting at God’s right hand  
I one day will be in that promise land
I have a purpose too
 Everyday I will pursue
To give my life to others
To glorified my King
To praise and worship Him In everything

 "Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him." 
Mathew 2:2

The Month Before Christmas

 The Christmas tree is up, Christmas list on the fridge
Shopping is next, I feel like I’m in bondage
I have to remind the kids that it’s not about a present
 Or about how much we spent
It’s about the birth of Jesus

When He was born, an angel appeared
The shepherds feared
“Don’t fear," the angel said, I bring you good news
There is a baby born, Jesus, the King of the Jews
A multitude of heavenly host came signing
Declaring glory to God and the Savior is bringing
Peace to all men, they were worshiping God the Son

The month before Christmas we can have fun
Buying things for each other, but remember the reason
For the season is the birth of Jesus and His love
Which we are unworthy of
May our gifts be to one another the love of Christ Jesus

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: "Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men. 
Luke 2:13-14

Thank You for Your ultimate good purpose for me

You are loving and powerful, well able to change me

To have patience and peace from above

I can trust You because Your sitting on the Throne
I call out to You and You hear my plea

I Come To Give You Thanks

Thank You, Father, for always keeping Your promises
You are a faithful lover of my soul
I’m sorry for not recognizing all You have done
Especially for making me whole

Thank You for loving me so
You chose me to be Your bride
When I was ugly and filthy
Full of myself and pride

Thank You for always providing
I’m never without shelter or food
No need for me to worry
I’m Your child, that’s how I’m viewed

Thank You for all my friends
Who always  pray
For me, I give You thanks
 For their love each and every day

Thank You for my family
Who love me so much
I’m so blessed by them
Through their love I can feel You touch

I come to You to give You thanks
I give You all the honor
You deserve all my praise

Praise the LORD! Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.

When You Are Thankful

When you are thankful,
 You will have peace
All your grumblings will soon cease

When you are thankful
You will have joy, not grief
Because of God and your belief

When you are thankful
You don’t remember the past
Remember God’s promises will always last

When you are thankful
For the trials that you don’t understand
Know that God is holding your hand

When I’m thankful
It helps me carry on
I will wake and worship and give You thanks
Each and every dawn.

Oh, give thanks to the LORD! Call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples!
 Psalms 105:1

Love All Around

If you look around your space
You will see love all over the place
If you look outside the box
You will see love right around the block
If you look and see a smiling face
Know that it’s God’s grace
There is love all around and  I think you will agree
That you need to open your eyes, look and see
There is love all around <3

I thank You, LORD, for all the love I see all around me <3

Inspired by Red,
"Our love (JESUS) always desires us, to keep us safe, and to cuddle us in His arms. Love all round <3"

We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is fitting, because your faith grows exceedingly, and the love of every one of you all abounds toward each other
2 Thessalonians 1:3

Yard Sale

I will sell
Clothes, books, and toys
Things I once enjoyed
I search the house for whatever I can sell
I will yell……YARD SALE!
Who wants an overstuffed blue whale?
This may seem funny
I need the extra money
 Christmas is coming fast
Someone please buy, I ask
New clothes, book, and toys
Things that will brings you some joys
Until next year
 When I yell in your ear

"Vanity of vanities," says the Preacher; "Vanity of vanities, all is vanity."
 Ecclesiastes 1:2

LORD God, You know how I feel
Help me to deal
With decisions that are going to be made
See LORD, I’m afraid
Show me the way
Each and everyday
What road I should take

LORD God, You know my body does ache
I cry out to You, King
I ask You to bring
Me comfort and peace
To help me to release
All my worries and cares
I cry out to You in prayers

LORD God, remind me
And I will agree
I can trust you, the Rock
You will show me where to walk
I give You thanks for what You're going to do
Because I’m going to make it through
You, I can trust
You, are holy and just

Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.
Proverbs 3: 5-6

Fly Away

When I’m tired and feel so weary
 When I’m sad and feel so teary
I want to fly
Up to the sky
Where I think everything is cheery

So many decisions for me to make
Time for the chains to break
I want to fly
Up to the sky
Where I think I won’t make a mistake

When I’m weary and feel so tired
I promise I will run and desire
To call out and wait
I will not faint
O LORD, It’s You that I admire

 LORD, I can’t do this all alone
This territory is not unknown
Please, no more strain
No more pain
The thought makes my heart groan

I will wait for You to answer
You are my true Master
Give me strength
 Don't be at arm’s length
I will worship and be called Your dancer

When I'm weary, I want wings to fly far, far away.....But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint. ~ Isaiah 40:31

Come Home soon

It’s so good to have my children here
Joking and laughing is sweet to my ear
Upstairs they play and sing
To our LORD Jesus the King
I sit downstairs listening to them
Hoping that it will never end
One day they will grow and leave
I pray they will always believe

I miss and love my husband so
Soon I hope we’ll say hello
A phone call here and there
Isn’t making it, my Dear
Come home real soon, Hun
So we can play in the sun
The children and I will pray
For you to come home right away


Let’s go dig and find some riches
 Find some treasure
Find some jewels
 Find some pleasures
Open up your Bible
You will soon see
That the Word of God
Will set you free

 Go dig and find
 He will speak
He has so much to say
Just open it up and seek
I promise you will hear
He truly loves you and care
 Go dig and find some treasures
 Then go out and share

That their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, and attaining to all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the knowledge of the mystery of God, both of the Father and of Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
Colossians 2:2-3

This Old House

I live in this old house
I swear there is a dead mouse
It smells so bad
It makes me so mad
I’ll blame my dear spouse

Flies swarming everywhere
The stench I really can’t bear
Outside for us
It would be a plus
If you can send a prayer

I live in this old house
Time for me and my spouse
To move, I don’t know where
To a place I smell fresh air
 But please, get rid of the dead mouse

In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
John 14:2


There are days when I have no feelings,
 My body is just numb
Not sure what to do or say
Just look at the floor at a crumb

I would love to be able to visit
I miss so many family and friends
 To show how much I love and care
All I can do is write and send

I wish you're all so near
 I miss the hug and kiss
 I’ll pray for you all
 And I'll sit and just reminisces

You know the desire of my heart 
I sit wondering and cry
 Please bring comfort and peace
I don’t want to ever say good bye

Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart
 Psalms 37:4

What is Grace

What is Grace?
Grace is giving someone something they don’t deserve
When someone wrongs you, you forgive and serve

What is Grace?
Grace is giving someone something they don’t deserve
We deserve hell, but for us, God has a place reserved

What is Grace?
Grace is a gift from God to us
God has also given us success

What is Grace?
Grace is a gift from God to us
He always loves bless

Grace, mercy, and peace will be with you from God the Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.
2 John 1:3
