Like a Candle

O~ Please Let me be
Like a candle, dear Lord,
Quietly shedding a light;
Perhaps in a limited sphere

Unsung but making the pathway
But making the pathway bright
For someone who happens
To come my way
Needing a bit of cheer
Then letting them go
With a heart that is light
To quiet another’s fear
O` Let me be
Like a Candle dear Lord,
For all my earthly stay,
Just giving myself
That some body lost
May see you and find the way

Alice Hansche Mortenson

Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light for my path

I managed to sleep through most of the race today, went to Steve's and Mom's earlier, but didn't stay long in either place. Guess I really just wanted to be home alone. It has gotten to where I always want to be alone, with the peace and the quiet of the house.

"A life of reaction is a life of slavery, intellectually and spiritually. One must fight for a life of action, not reaction."
- Rita Mae Brown -

2004

it's funny when a person such as I let's go of the machine mode and becomes the human I am, I find I cry real tears, I find I want what I can never have, I find that I miss things that are gone from my life, I find that I have not the first clue on how to change any of this

life moves, in directions that only we as an individual understands within our own thoughts. the direction, the sway of the storm is our alone and only ours. Never forget that that whatever direction is taken you are responsible for each step you take.

2002

if my heart were allowed to feel, and to give the love I have to share, would I blossom or fail? if my heart were allowed to fly, would I sit and cry? if my heart were allowed to be, then who would I be?

2001

a month on my own and I am still surviving, this is a good thing

2000

At times I seem to be drifting and then again I find I have a direction, so often I'm uncertain of that direction, or what it may lead to. This frightens me, I search for guidance but yet I do not find it, I am so alone, lost in this world.

1999

Giving is a part of happiness
not the sharing but the knowing
Giving is something so easily done
Receiving the difficult task

1998

My creativeness has deserted me, I fear that as of late my thoughts have been so jumbled that the words are dead. I have so much emotion and turmoil rolling through my life right now, so many choices to make, so much work to accomplish that I'm going backwards instead of forward.

1997

When a thought is too weak to be expressed simply, simply drop it.
- Marquis de Vauvenargues -
