Loving Arms

I wrote this song in 2012. My mom had called me to talk to me about one of my aunt’s, who was struggling with her mental health, to consult with me on what to do. Mom and I have worked on my own mental health through various means over the years. After the phone call I…

The Measure of My Creation

Finding You

  Sometimes, lying in my bed at night I long for that gentle touch That will guide me to the light. I often wish I could see your gentle face, Hear your sweet, loving voice Speaking to my trembling heart. I long for that warm embrace Taking all the pain away. I sometimes long to…

Faith’s Promise Child

Prelude: Promise Child O my little Promise Child From Heaven. Faith’s little Promise Child, Faith’s little Promise Child, From Heaven.   Verse One: One day you came to tell me That you wanted to come. I knew that could not happen At the time you chose to ask. A little frustrated I told you so,…

Ashes

I look at these things, Symbols of the ashes of the past— Even some a few days old. Old comforts, Longings, hopes and dreams. Fresh heartaches, Seeping, bleeding heartbreaks Still steaming and sizzling In the fire’s flames. They haunt me round the room, From under the bed they speak to me, Reminding me of what…

Will You Still Love Me?

Will you still love me If my ears are pierced And I have tattoos and a toe ring, Shiney and smooth? Will you still love me If I drink and cuss On occasions when life is hard And I don’t know how to cope. Will you still love me Even though I’m so lost, Though…

Love Divine

Prelude: I have faith like a river. I have hope like a river. I have love like a river Flowing in through me. May we endure forever. May we all praise together. May we help one another Build Celestial home here on earth. Together, together, May we be One in Him.   First Refrain: You…

The True Love Dares: Dare 21

Dare 21: Express praise and gratitude for each step of progress. Encourage the excavation process by your love and prayer of praise for the work of God your life and the lives of others. Acts 16:16-40 As I read through this scripture, do you know what went through my mind? What if Paul and Silas…

The True Love Dares: Dare 20

Dare Twenty: Your utmost patience is imperative amidst excavation, as it can get quite messy. Read Acts 8:1; 9:1-31 In an earlier Dare we talked about how sometimes when things look the worst on the outside, God is doing his best work on the inside. Remember? Well, today we are going to expand on that….

Sisters With You

  “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched–they must be felt with the heart.” ~Helen Keller   (Refrain) Sisters, I wanna be Sisters With you! We’ll have our trying times, Our tears and our laughs, Oh, I wanna be Sisters With you!   Verse One: I don’t…

If

If a word were worth a million kisses I’d speak a billion words. If a kiss were worth a billion “fall-into-you” embraces I’d give you a trillion kisses. If a trillion “fall-into-you” embraces were worth a Love that had no end I’d never stop “falling-into-you”. And since I have already a love that never ends…

The True Love Dares: Dare 19

Dare Nineteen: Be the Lord’s servant; if you can’t do it for this person, do it for Him. Read Alma 8:8-18 You know, sometimes we have a relationship that is toxic, flat out toxic and honestly, you do still love this toxic person. But the reality is, this person isn’t interested in change at this point, or they…

The Loving Thing To Do

Sometimes the loving thing to do Is the very thing you don’t want to do. It’s as painful to you As to the one you love. Why is that? Sometimes the loving thing to do Is to let go When everything in you wants to hold on tight. Sometimes the loving thing is to hold…
