Her soul is that of a Gypsy
Her heart is that of a flowing river
Her mind is never sleeps
She still believes
She still hopes
She is inwardly dying
As you can see by the title ,I am more than happy to say goodbye to 2014!! I can’t help but reflect what, I am leaving behind!! 2014 will be a year ,I will never forget!! I lost two of the greatest people in my life, my mother and brother!! I embrace every memory of them and I walk on with no regret at all!! I loved , honored and respected both with all my heart and all my soul as they did towards me!! What a great blessing it is to me,to be able to enter 2015 embracing the fondest ,most wonderful memories of these two amazing lives!! 2014 was a year of tears, mistakes and lessons well learned!! It was also a year of joy and pride in two of the most amazing people I am blessed to call ,my children!! Charley and Sarah have given me more joy than I ever thought possible..Two totally different people and yet both on the same page!! My kids are my rocks!! We have had much and we have had little ,but nevertheless,we have had!! To say the least and I am sure you have seen on my Face Book,I am a very proud mother and rightfully so!! I know the driving force behind me is ,My God!! If not for my faith,I wouldn’t be sitting here writing this letter to you,my friends!! It is the very reason for my existence and the very reason,I am able to keep on keeping on!! I thank God for His love towards me,His forgiveness towards me and for every breath He allows me to breath!! He is my savior,the lifter of my head,the great I am, the lover of my soul ,the prince of my peace! He truly is the name above all names!! As we enter into a new year ,I encourage all of us to above all ,love one another…I want to find myself busy in the things that will glorify ,edify ,build up and restore…at all cost we need to find ourselves far from what tears down and destroys… I encourage everyone to refrain from gossip, judging others ( less you judge yourself first) to be kind, giving ,forgiving and remember ,we all fall short and no one is exempt from making mistakes and having failures… Mistakes and failures are as vital to ones life as is, great choices and success!! Both serve a purpose!! Now ,I want to quote one of my favorite apostles (Paul) writings “
12 Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. 13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
The candy man,Oh yes that is his name !
A man and a boy one in the same
He has traveled the world near and far ,always carrying his candy jar
He like’s a good joke and a light of a smoke
His younger life was hard and trying ,but ya never heard my Brooklyn boy crying
He would always listen to all your stories and bring out all your glory
His yes is a yes and his no is a no and with Charlie ya can be sure ,he never puts on any show
What you see is what you get and if you are true blue,he is a sure bet
He never brings anyone down ,in fact he make s you smile and laugh better than a clown
He give’s to me without a thought and never frets over what I bought
Are you happy is what he’ll say ,not worrying he payed the way
I searched and searched all my life and till ,Charlie I went threw a little strife
I would do it again to know ,I would end up his wife
We had our time of sadness and still came out with great gladness
We made it through one of the toughest times and still came up partners in crime
There is nothing I wouldn’t do, to make his life a rainbow and never tinted blue
Games are for children to play ,we will live our live’s in a loving way
God protect us and keep us strong
When seeking you ,we can’t go wrong
I don’t know many people who have what we do
A love that is faithful through and through
Our house is a home and as long as ,we are together,we are never alone…
Candy Man ,you are my heart beat
written to my husband Charlie from me 1992
Why does she write in the 3rd person? Someone has to protect her!
LORD, you have probed me, you know me:
you know when I sit and stand;
you understand my thoughts from afar.
You sift through my travels and my rest;
with all my ways you are familiar.
Even before a word is on my tongue,
LORD, you know it all.
Behind and before you encircle me
and rest your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
far too lofty for me to reach.
Where can I go from your spirit?
From your presence, where can I flee?
If I ascend to the heavens, you are there;
if I lie down in Sheol, there you are.
If I take the wings of dawn*
and dwell beyond the sea,*
Even there your hand guides me,
your right hand holds me fast.
If I say, “Surely darkness shall hide me,
and night shall be my light”*—
Darkness is not dark for you,
and night shines as the day.
Darkness and light are but one.
You formed my inmost being;
you knit me in my mother’s womb.
I praise you, because I am wonderfully made;
wonderful are your works!
My very self you know.
Knowing this ,I know,I am known to an amazing God! Psalm 139
She is a girl,
She is a woman,
She is “The Girl Behind the Makeup”
