Down for a bit!

Hello out there just wanted t say hello and let you know that I’m currently having to sit on the sidelines for a little while. I just had surgery on my right shoulder, had my rotator cuff repaired, had my bicep muscle moved and reattached and finally had part of my shoulder bone shaved back. I’m having to do everything left handed which has been an adventure in itself. Never realized how hard it is putting on your socks with one hand. Writing this has been an adventure. I will try to keep on reading and following your blogs as best I can. Thank you and God bless you all.

Keeper of Her Heart (Love So True Version)

I was blessed to find a love so rare
She was an answer to all my prayers
Above all others she’s the one
Unfortunately, my actions almost made it come undone
An angel from heaven was she
Our love was always meant to be
So, entrusted from God from the start
I was to always be the keeper of her heart

Five Finger Death Punch – “Wash it All Away”

Lyrics;

I’ve given up
On society
Up on my family
Up on your social disease

I’ve given up
On the industry
Up on democracy
Done with all your hypocrisy

All of the chaos
And all of the lies
I hate it

I’m wasting here
Can anyone wash it all away
I’m waiting here
For anyone to wash it all away
Wash it all away

I’ve given up
On the media
Feeds my hysteria
Sick of living down on my knees
I’ve given up
On morality
Feeds my brutality
Fuck what you think about me

All of the chaos
And all of the lies
I hate it

I’m wasting here
Can anyone wash it all away
I’m waiting here
For anyone to wash it all away
Wash it all away

I won’t change for you
And I can’t take the pain
There’s nothing you can do
And there’s nothing you can say

I’ve given up
On everything
Up on everything
Up on everything

I’m wasting here
Can anyone wash it all away
I’m waiting here
For anyone to wash it all away
Wash it all away

I’m wasting here
With everyone just wash it all away
I’m waiting here
For anyone to wash it all away
Wash it all away
Wash it all away

Time

Time slips by slowly
Never going as fast as we wish
Or slowly when we need it to
Time together is to short
Time apart drags on and on
Slowly the seconds tick by
Making the minutes move on
With the hours passing into the past
The days mixing into each other
With the months feeling like eternity
Until that day I come home
Into your loving arms
Where I will pass the rest of my time
Until my time runs out
But I will make every second of it count
Because with you is where I belong always

Five Finger Death Punch – “Bad Company”

I spent 2 tours in Iraq from 2010 – 2011 and 2017 -2018.  I unfortunately didn’t get to see them when they were over there. Worked 12 – 15 hour days 7 days a week on average. Some where much longer. I think the hardest part is coming back home sometimes. I want to have a special shout out to all my brother’s and sisters who have held that line and for those who never came home and those still fighting.  God Bless  you all…

 

Stages

Stages of life pass us by
First, we are baby’s dependent on those around us
Then we are children learn to run, jump and have fun
Followed by those teen years between a child and adult
As we begin our adult years there comes new experiences                                       From marriage to parenthood
Watching our children grow as we go along in our own lives
Growing through those stages of life we once traipsed
Then they reach that time for marriage and starting their own families
Becoming in-laws then grandparents
Oh grandparents a stage I recently came into
How wonderful it has been to watch my baby grow up and have her own baby
As I held my grandson for the first time
The magic of seeing my own daughter as a baby returned
Such a small little person, but so incredible to behold
That love of a child raised tenfold
How fascinated I was just to watch him there
A miracle that started when I met such a beautiful person so long ago
How our love created our own family which now has grown larger you see
Being a grandparent is a badge I wear with pride
A name I love to hear told into my ear
Thank you, Lord, for another wonderful gift
So perfectly made by the hand who made us all

A Long Walk Back

boy-boyfriend-couple-couples-favim_com-4821985

Lost for so long

Two souls separated along a path

Two hearts meant to be together

Trying to find a safe way out

Looking, searching for the best way back

Slowly finding their way amongst the thorns

Pain along the way, but worth the run

Knowing that they are better together than apart

Seeing each other closer to that path

Meeting along that path they were supposed to journey as one

A long walk back, an odyssey prevailed

Combined, two hearts become one.

Now coming together to make a fresh start

Today, Tomorrow, Forever

I promise from the bottom to the top of my heart.


Dedicated to the love of my life, many of you know her as ~M.

Here is her blog.  https://puttingmyfeetinthedirt.com/

Love you Babe, you are my TTF.

 

Journey Back

should-you-get-back-together

There was a time you loved me with no doubt

Then one day that love ran out

The feelings you had for me where gone

You wanted nothing but to be left alone

A sad heart was what afflicted you

I had ignored your cries, I ignored your pleas

Abandoning your despair, you were prepared to leave

I became distraught I became bereaved

Crying out to God to change this blackened heart of mine

Running out of time

He heard my cries, He heard my pleas

A changed heart was His decree

My heart is yours wholly if you desire

Winning your love is what I aspire

This journey to join us back as one

A pilgrimage I will travel until I have won

A Love Story

Once upon a time
I know a bit cliché
There was a boy and a girl
At first sight it was anything but a delight
But a relationship did sprout
Soon distance between them seemed to put it all in pearl
Closer they grew and soon the two became one
Life was grand and their love did blossom
Bundles of joy soon did follow
Time went along and as always troubles did ensue
Eventually a breaking point did occur between these two
However the end was not to be
Perseverance was their way
A love that would not go away
Life continued on with bumps along the way
How they made it where others would falter
Then one day he made a decision that would put them to the test
A mistake it was looking back
What will become of these two is yet to be seen
But I believe that a love that once was can be again
To be continued…..


For the one I love……

Hope

Hope is such a small but exciting word
Even when things look bleakest
Hope is a knowledge that there is always light in the darkness
It allows you to continue on
And it shows you a path to go upon
Hope is just that an idea that things will get better
So when you feel like your life is down
Search for that word that will turn it around
Hope will find you when you least expect it
Providing you an idea of what life can be
So keep your chin up
And always look for the hope in the good
Because when you realize it
It is always darkest before the dawn
God gave us a hope in this world
Through his son who is the Light of this World
So find that hope and it will set you free.
As it has done for me
