Love Affair


What do you do when you are miles apart

Without you what shall I do

When I feel that pain within my heart

Wishing I was next to you

Upon a star I wish at night

Upon a prayer I wish I was there

Hearing your voice my heart takes flight

This story of our love affair

Built over time

Washing off so much grime

Trials and tribulations we have endured

A relationship that has matured

Upon these journeys we have created

The love we have both awaited

Dandelion Dreams


Dreams of far off places

Wishes for adventures in exotic lands

Hoping for best friends

Praying that her daddies trip will soon end

Blowing upon a weed full of hope

She exhales upon her dandelion dreams

Spreading her dreams, hopes, wishes and prayers upon the wind

She watches them glide away into the sky

Watching then fly into the clouds with a tear in her eyes.

October Writing Prompts:

Scattered Rose Petals


A basket full of rose petals

Scattered colors of red and white

The colors of love and purity

Tiny steps lead the way of the bride to be

Dressed in white, step in step her father at her side

Tiny hands reach into the basket of petals so deep

Grasping a handful she tosses them about

Scattered rose petals fall gently to the ground

A smile so bright it radiates the sun

Cute little dimples she leads the way

Walking and tossing them all around

Leading the way as two becomes one

What I’ve Been Up To

IMG_2324.JPGHello all my Blogger friends out there. Just wanted to let you all know what has been going on with myself. Well I’m not sick or anything like that.  I have made that large change in my life. This journey over the past month has taken me to South Carolina and now to Fort Polk in Louisiana for now. Next month my journey will take me even farther away from my family for an extended amount of time. Once I can get myself settled in I will be back amongst you my friends. Please pray for my family during this time we are apart. Thank you for your time and understanding.

Time Rolls By

Time rolls by like a snail on the move

Unable to decide what to do

The clock ticks slowly by, like a drop of the morning dew

As the sun arrives and the night bids adieu

The hours slip by like a thief in the night

Stealing away everything within his sight

The days go by like the slow moving waters of a lazy stream

A quietness and solitude leaving such hazy dreams

My moments apart from you tears at my heart

Making me look forward to the day we make a fresh start



Even when we think we are at our loneliest God’s love shines through.

Her Writing Haven

Another angel is sent my way

And I’m deeply touched

By all they do and say

Just as I begin to think

I’m very much alone

God reminds me of how

He’s still sitting on his throne

For it’s only through him

That these blessings do occur

And with every passing day

I know in him I can be sure

For by faith I can always see

His light shining all around

And his daily mercies of love

Forever endure and surround

You Are

You are my past

Without you I wouldn’t last

You are my yesterday

Caught within your arms is a place I would love to stay

You are my today

My love for you will never go away

You are my tomorrow

Time apart brings upon sorrow

You are my future

Our dreams of then will be beyond super

You are my forever

Two hearts made into one is our endeavor

#TuesdayTunes – Toby Keith “American Soldier”

Today I begin my new journey and path in my life. I am going back into the Active Army to finish out my career. I don’t know all were this will take me, but I am ready to give it a go. Being older than most of the people I will be serving with should be interesting. I have enjoyed my last 10 years in the National Guard and have made many friends, but now I have a greater task and purpose in my life. Please pray for my family as we will be apart for some time. I am an American Soldier….
