Distance

aircraft-1836360_960_720

The thought of us being apart

Wears upon my fragile heart

But I know no matter how hard it may be

It will always be you and me

Our hearts will always be mended as one

Until our days on earth are done

The flame within our hearts will burn bright

Whatever the distance between us two

My heart will only beat for you

When loneliness becomes overbearing

Look upon the skies and stars we are sharing

Call my name upon the wind

With our souls intertwined

Answering back with a whisper between our souls

Sending my love back to you

Putting My Feet in the Dirt

Well, as many of you know, I have been participating in the Whole30 program over the last month.  For those of you who don’t know what this is, it’s a diet program which mainly consists of eating fruits, vegetables, and meat for 30 days.

It worked so well for my family and I that we have decided to continue eating this way on a regular basis.  We all feel so much healthier and have a lot more energy.  My husband had been dealing with skin rashes for over a year now, and those have been completely eliminated.  And I had been suffering from lifelong digestive issues, and have found that I am free of the issues I used to have.  But just to give you a little more in-depth knowledge before you go and jump on the bandwagon, I wanted to give you some pros and cons for this diet…

Upon A Cloud

hayden-valley-63564_960_720

Tell me what the sound a cloud makes

Let me know what it takes

To find where it begins and where it ends

What that journey they make intends

As I watch them pass me by

Wishing to myself I could fly

Free as they float across the sky

Seeing all that lies below

Oh how I wish I could go

Over the trees and above the mountains

A soul set free to see all of God’s creation below

Tuesday Tunes – Def Leppard “Rock of Ages”

Being a teenager in the 80’s when music Videos were making their start. MTv was actually showing music videos. My first really favorite band from this time was Def Leppard. They were the first concert I got to see when I was 13 with my best friend Dan. Hope you enjoy this look back at my music I grew up with. #TuesdayTunes

 

Far Away

beutiful-boy-dad-father-hero-favim_com-448329

Darkness as black as coal

Stars shimmer as the only light

A lonely outpost in the vast mountains

All around the enemy lurks in the dark

Plotting and planning to kill and destroy

Inside thoughts are thousands of miles away

Restless sleep as dreams of loved ones abound

Thinking of a wife, child or parents back home

Fear is a feeling that they hold down deep

Brothers in arms they must trust each other to survive

While outside the enemy plots to lay waste to their lives

A flash of light, an explosion rocks the night

Gunfire, rockets, bombs all around

The thoughts of country and home go away

Only thing that matters now is your brother on your left and right

The enemy comes wave after wave

Those dreams of home drift so far away

Seconds become minutes, minutes become hours

Fear and adrenaline rush through their veins

Explosions and shots all around

The fight for survival rules this ground

Silent prayers to God abound

Lord keep me safe and let me see my loved ones again

The enemy comes closer and closer, rage and hate in their hearts

The battle goes on through the night

Waiting for the vestiges of first light

Men cry out in anguish and pain

Unknown who will live and who will die

Loved ones back home awake from their dreams

Feeling an anguish at the gasp of a last breathe

Hearts once attached awake

Broken apart sensing their loss

Tears fall and bodies give out knowing their soldiers light has gone out.


Re-posted in honor of those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in duty to their country and the families who have dealt with that sacrifice. May God bring you peace.

Remembrance to all who have fallen in duty to our country on this Memorial Day.

 

Hand in Hand

affection-2178174_960_720

The future is an uncertain mystery

We want to be able to control every aspect

Thinking we know all that comes next

But one day we are here and the next we are not

So as our future together is full of fright

Wishing we will always walk in the light

I know that there will be days full of rain

As long as I’m with you I will not be strained

For my future is with you that is all I know

Wherever that journey takes us we will go

With God as our guide

And you by my side

Hand in hand we will go forth

Whether it by East, West, North or South

The Absence of Motivation

Putting My Feet in the Dirt

girl-in-bed-1280x720

Oh motivation where have you gone?
Will you come back soon to where you belong?

Oh motivation where can you be?
Are you lost in the vastness of the wide open sea?

Oh motivation do you really exist?
I honestly need to know, I must insist!

Oh motivation will you give me a sign?
Can you please help me to free my mind?

Oh motivation what is your goal?
Are you lost in the mind of a tired old soul?

Oh motivation can you please tell me the truth?
Are you ever coming back to me, or have you moved to Duluth?

Oh motivation am I being too impatient?
What should I do, wait until I’m ancient?

Oh motivation are you really as important as you seem?
Are you really of any value, or just a fanciful dream?

Oh motivation are you really gone?
Don’t you know that without you…
