Im a star in a much crowded sky
some might shine brighter but I am still here,
my heart breaks when I have to say goodbye
to the fallen sparkles I once held near,

soft light I shed is a lantern in darkness
though some do glitter golden in daytime,
and dusty I might hide a fractured mess
while others bathe away their outer grime,

alas I hide like a diamond stone rough
awaiting to be found by those whom seek,
special saved souls rugged but not too tough
that have much to say but little to speak,

as my facets have been molded with love
carefully cut with kindness from above~

When it rains it pours as they say...

My eldest daughter is in need of prayer for someplace affordable and safe to live in Omaha. She is disabled and is in an abusive household on limited social security. Its a bad situation and Im giving it to God.

My youngest has an infection, and they are preforming surgery again tomorrow due to the wound site not healing (from the attachment of a ligament in her ankle). She is in need of healing prayer.

Im not working right now due to the two eye surgeries. My central heat/air unit is taking a crap, and will need to be replaced. Prayer for me to find a good job once my eyes heal so I can help myself and my daughters.

Thank you Father for all your many blessings, as I should never feel this over whelmed and helpless even though I do. Forgive me.
Ive been single for so long it BITES not to at least have someone to hold my hand. Thank you for all the beautiful simple things. Amen.

Yanno its a beautiful thing when our Father in heaven, in the name of his Son Jesus Christ, can connect strangers in prayer via technology. He has brought us all together on this site for his glory. That's so beautiful to me right now, I find great comfort in it.

Thank you all, and thank you LORD in the name of your Son Jesus Christ for this group, all the prayer, and everything beautiful in this world.

might we wear our helmet of salvation boldly
fashioned with the truth in YOUR word,
give us strength to share the gospel of Christ
to quench those fiery darts where ever heard,

may the sword of the spirit protect us well
in daily battles against the rulers of darkness,
as we dress ourselves modestly with righteous peace
remembering to be thankful for tribulation's mess~

better days are coming Father, with a swiftness only you can bring
through your great love, mercy, glory, grace, compassion, and will

Love and blessings to all, Amen.

dont awaken me from a mid summer's nap
you will find my mind was spinning away
weaving a spider's web of deepest contemplation
trying to resolve every mystery known to mankind
in a block buster movie not recorded on film
that struggles to still vibrate deep within my soul
don't make it slowly melt away the wax of illusion

raging free from the bondage of my tired eyes
as it breaks through boundaries of silent slumber
smashed like a hollow vessel into thousands of pieces
no one can hear but me and heart which does know
the sound of those suddenly shattering dreams
now faded away like sun bleached hair in the day light

...just let me sleep

Father in the name of your Son Jesus Christ thank you for your great love and kindness
praise your holy name for getting S.K.L. someplace safe where she may find happiness
thank you for the lessons the doctors must learn and others watching as R.B.L. endures this tribulation
that life and healing is in your hands not theirs and may this become a great testimony for you
two surgeries and now a suture abscess that doesnt look so great as A.S. is fighting against her flesh
but you are the ultimate healer and physician of all mankind, Blessings to YOU Father!
Father may you find great happiness, and peace in all things, we are truly blessed to experience
a small fraction of your mercy in this world~ Glory to YOUR name! Amen.

we could never create our own beginning
nor choose the families we were born into
but we can choose how we write our pages
as adults with decisions based in scripture

we have freedom of will to carve out a life
might we do so forging our written destiny
dedicated to YOU first than all believers
in the name of our savior Jesus Christ, Amen

"You cant go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending"
-C.S. Lewis

you know life will throw curve balls
when we least expect them to soar
at multiple speeds in different sizes
as we try to catch a few to repurpose
for the greater good as we relax
resting upon the foundations of Christ

knowing our altitude of attitude
through HIS truth and generosity
turns our first reactions around
so we may rejoice building character
for those times when we may strike
and hit a home run out of the park

:)

while driving my Jeep home yesterday
it started to down pour big hard drops
like out of nowhere in the daylight
and I could see a rainbow forming

it was faintly visible as I wondered
quietly to myself hey God why is it
that we can see beautiful rainbows
but not where they end?

as I continued to view the road
behold GOD heard my question
and answered me right on the spot
while I could see his magnificence

shine a rainbow through my windshield
like it was a brief gift just for me
with a quickness it disappeared
reminding me of his greatness

when I got home another sweet gift
a little bird from its nesting area
up in my front porch said hello
hanging out by a pair of work boots

...its really the little things I am in awe of :)
they are all around us when we take the time
to stop the world long enough to see
how slow it is really moving...

Father in the name of your Son Jesus Christ thank you for the rainbows in life, including on this site
for they might not know how much multicolored light they shine into the darkness of deep despair
through one simple prayer sent out across the planet into the hopes of another in pain
so they can rest upon the answers you give through your love mercy grace and greatness,
in the name of your Son Jesus Christ, Amen.

just thought I would share this with y'all- love to everyone reading...

my daughter had an appointment today for her ankle
and they are going to see how it continues to heal
before they make any decisions on another surgery
so thank you Father in the name of your Son Jesus Christ
for the prayer warriors on this sight reading these pages
thank you for all miracles big or small and hearing us

may you bless them each according to their needs
and answer their most secret prayers which only you know---
(as they shine so boldly it confounds the wise in this world
into hearing and taking heed to the message of salvation
through Jesus Christ your Son whom died for the sins of man)
---according to your love kindness mercy compassion
and greatness of your will not ours, Amen.

their hands are as numb as thoughts
frozen still inside empty pockets
reaching for full nothingness
not even a shred of leftover lint

bill board back rests plastic bag pillows
slow stale urine stained alley ways
litter scattered with yesterdays sorrows
now made moldy in memories of madness

there's no Calgon to take them away
nor men in white coats providing a bath
only cold concrete left to soothe silently
aches only a forgotten soul could know

now dumpsters have locks on them
so they cannot even scrounge a tossed meal
hungry for compassion's ear to lend
the symphony of safe clean warm shelter

so they lean upon asphalt America
land of the free home of the brave
which they once served ever so proudly
now thankful for your pocket change

(reality is disheartening when illegals
get more government benefits than
a homeless veteran on the brink of suicide)

honor thy LORD with all thy substance
for he shall deliver us from this world
we shall not perish but be born again
never to abide in this darkness at hand

we shall be cast out of this evil land
and will not die in vain grievously
but rejoice with our Father in heaven
with his Son Jesus at his right hand

what a beautiful day it will be
for we are his children his holy flock
and have the repentance of sins
as a free gift through His shed blood

watch therefore for we know not
the day nor the hour the Son of man
shall come to take us into heaven
where we shall rest in peace forever

Amen

there is no disturbance inside my soul
as I find a quality of calmness,
the holy spirit guides me to this peace
when life tribulations do create stress,

it only takes a moment to reflect
upon solitude with introspection,
to plead from a place deep inside my heart
and come to this needed destination,

armor has been gifted the tools are near
what I need is prayer for the LORD to hear!

...giving it to God in the name of his Son Jesus Christ on a daily basis
