I'm a single mom with two great kids living near Dallas, Texas. This is my life; day to day things that are probably only important to me. This is my record of my ups, my downs and the road that I've taken along the way. For whatever reason YOU'RE here, I hope you find something you can enjoy and/or relate to. God bless.

Poetry Monday

(cause y'all really don't wanna hear about my learning all the innies and outties of Photoshop)

Turn Your Eyes Toward Heaven

When emptiness surrounds you
and you wonder what life is for...
When you hear a constant knocking
but there's no one at your door...
When all life's simple pleasures
only leave you wanting more...
Turn your eyes toward heaven
feel your spirit start to soar.

When heartache seems to follow
down every hopeful road...
When every minor task
turns into a heavy load...
When your days of hopes and promises
now resemble days of Job...
Turn your eyes toward heaven,
Someone's paid the debts you owed.

For there's Someone who is waiting
day and night to draw you near.
He calls your name continuously ,
if you'd but only hear.
He shines His light on darkness,
gives you joy and peace for fear.
If you'll turn your eyes toward heaven
you'll find Gods only Son is here.

He takes away the hopelessness
you've harbored for so long.
He turns your cries of loneliness
into a joyful song.
He forgives you of your weaknesses
and remembers not your wrongs.
Turn your eyes toward heaven,
you're headed home, where you belong.

by me, kfmb :)

Shy, me? No daring, just basking in the afterglow. This was an experiment in stress relief. That was the third painting I've ever done in my life and of course, I see all the flaws. I'm a little stunned that it was well received. Now what about that book?

Omigoodness Kathi. That poem is absolutely beautiful. I mean, wow. I am loving that poem. I am two seconds away from printing that out and framing it. I loved it. It is so uplifting. You need to add poetry to your photo blog. That way, we would have the best of both worlds and go and read it anytime. I love it.
