The Tears Unseen

Because my tears are unseen

does that make them any less real?

What does it matter the worry I carry;

all for you – for your life, your existence

when your so unaware.

For now I will tuck them all in,

prayers in a box

as each day passes I hope they sprout wings and reach heaven.

My arms will never be able to reach the depth of heaven,

where healing is found

and place them at feet of Jesus.

My arms can only reach around your small frame,

in each of these moments there is no where else Id rather be.

And that is all I want for you.


As you probably didn’t in fact notice I’ve been absent with posting.  I completely breezed by last week with nothing said.  This week has brought on many changes.  One of those changes is a brand new puppy.  His name is Scooter Joe and he came all the way out to Colorado from Dodge City, Kansas.  He’s a handsome fellow and is going to fit right in.  This week I would like to begin by saying how thankful I am for patience.  Without it, I wouldn’t be here today. I wouldn’t be married to my husband, I assume one of the kids would have been sold to the highest bidder and we definitely wouldn’t be making a home for a new furry friend.

I hope that as February draws to an end you are able to think back at the last few weeks and realize many of the days were filled with love.  Love from family, friends, your significant other, even strangers.  As March rolls in and we get to enjoy all the green beer and corned beef we can handle let us try and also enjoy how lucky we are.  It isn’t the luck of the Irish, it is the luck of life that sustains mankind.  The ability wake up each morning with breathe in our lungs, and with the hope of spring and warm sunshine on the horizon, take a moment each day to find a reason why you are indeed a lucky lad.  Oh and please remember to count your lucky pennies too. 

Now to the best part- follow the links, smile and find five things you love today.

Your first assignment is easy: Step 1. Get green cardstock, Step 2. Print out a few cards, Step 3. Insert pennies, Step 4. Give your creation to strangers, co workers, friends, anyone!

Next, Sock It To Me with a Chai on the side!

Then, in another life lets play dress up, just like her, sit in pretty chairs and sip tea from lovely cups .  All while looking out the window onto a beautiful piece of French countryside.

Please tell me you have something that resembles a smile on your face by now…

okay good!

Now go listen, or make that read these words.

Decide to be a reporter so you can say things like this.

Use that marketing degree to come up with clever advertising.

Not quite as red neck as say your deep fried Twinkie but looks amazing.

Are you quickly becoming a grown up and spending more time in the kitchen, actually cooking?  Remember this perfect food art helps ease the wickedness!

That is all for now lovelies.  I love you all and am so lucky to have you as friends!

Obtain wisdom from the family dog regularly

Always remember to take a moment for oneself

Create beauty, like these chairs that got a great makeover

Pictures of love are everywhere

All of my love to you today!
