Dear God, please bless my grandparents.

Thank You for the life they gave my parents and for the life they give me.
For the ways they helped me and made me strong, I give thanks.
For the ways they love me no matter what, I rejoice.
For the ways they have paved the road that leads me here, I am grateful.
Let them grow in wisdom and joy in life.
Let them find peace and rest from their work.
Let them be healed of every sickness and pain.
And let them see with their own eyes the glory of your Son, Jesus, in the love of their children and grandchildren.
Bless them always until they come to rest in you.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen

stress causes tension
Tension causes pain
pain cries for comfort
Comfort never comes

2002

I have seemed to have lost control of myself, for I find I am slipping into a world of fantasy and make believe where reality is a blur and the here is life

2001

walk with me in my dreams
sing with me and the birds
laugh at my ways

2000

A day wasted on sleep, and work
dreams filled the hours of the voided silence
hope and pleasure warred within
trying to find the equation that would allow me more time

Completion by deletion
Laughter finally
tears again

Again I find myself tired and worn, struggling to do all that is right, fighting inside my self to not be selfish. To give until I have no more to give. To forget my happiness and my peace.

If granted three wishes today what would they be?

To hold the one I Love Most
To protect the ones I Love
To see the color blue, dancing in your eyes

Be noble minded! Our own heart, and not other men's opinions of us, forms our true honor.
