"Only fear the LORD, and serve him in truth with all your heart; for consider how great things he hath done for you."
- 1 Samuel 12:24 -


I write my words for me to recall
   but yet I find there are others who saw
I write my words for me to express
   all that is held within my breast
I write my words for me to see
   what I am and what I might be
I write my words to set me free
   these words are for me.


"See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ."
- Colossians 2:8 -


well I finally decided it's time to give up the diet Pepsi well maybe not totally but reducing the amount of consumption by 1/2 maybe more


today I did
today I didn't
today I will
today I won't
today I should
today I would
today if only I could


the eastbound train rumbles through town
the midnight hour has just passed and
the day is new time spins but yet stands still
the week is nay done


A painting in a museum hears more ridiculous opinions than anything else in the world.

Ahhh. A man with a sharp wit. Someone ought to take it away from him before he cuts himself.

Summer falls upon us
beating sun
water breezes
No more Freezes


Carry me away
To sweet passion and bliss
Anything other than this

Make things look brighter
Remove my sorrow
Give me tomorrow

Hold me close
Never let go
For I would not go so low

Let me reach out to touch
To feel the real
Not some artificial deal

Love me as I am
Not what you perceive
In this way will you only receive

Make my tomorrow
A day not soon forgotten
Replace all of those that have been so rotten

Share in the beauty
One of life's everlasting joy
Remember that I'm no toy

Forget yesterday
With all of those who lie
Letting it pass by

Do not haunt my dreams
For you were not there
Only I can say that I cared

Give me hope for the future
Where I shall feel Heaven
Even if it's only at Eleven

Come forward, out of the dark
Show me your face
So I can know you in another place


I not only use all the brains that I have, but all that I can borrow.
- Woodrow Wilson -
