A Fresh Start

a fresh start
a new beginning
a new outlook
today i start anew
God i ask for strength
but most of all
i ask that you continue
to be patient with me
as i learn to trust you
depend on you
wait on you
and Lord i ask for patience

Hold Firm

as the tree branch grows
it grows in strength
nurtured by sun and rain
its strength is tested by the winds that blow
forces of nature that combine to build
up and destroy
grow in strength and be pliable
so that when the wind blows
you can bend and not break
embrace the test
hold firm
and continue to grow

Lord, please give me strength to endure all that comes my way.

Tree Branches

deeply planted into the ground
a trunk with roots spread wide
above many branches
some bring balance and are healthy
some are filled with rot
and are in need of pruning
today a new branch has begun to sprout
with leaves vibrantly green
i hope this branch remains healthy
bringing balance
bringing life
and though through the years
the leaves from this branch may fall
others will replace them
but the branch i pray will never need pruning

He Carried Me Posted by Hello
today is a new day
new thoughts
new ideas
a new beginning

today i will remain positive
and uplift and encourage
those i encounter

i will pass on my smile
my good nature
and i will thank God
for it is him and him alone
that has brought me where
i am today

your constant trying to get a reaction out of me is going to back fire on you one day. you say you have this need to see just how much you mean to me...well let me tell you now...YES I LOVE YOU...but if you keep doing things to get a rise out of me, things that put me through an emotional roller-coaster ride, one day baby, the ride will stop and i will get off and not look back. now tell me, will you be able to handle that?
