Smile

Smile, tho your heart is breaking,
Smile, you are not forsaken.
God has a Plan,
and He can make a way.

Smile there’s no use in crying,
don’t ever give up trying.
You’ve come this far,
and you are made to Shine.

Life has a way of changing,
Miracles rearranging,
There’ll be a day, you can say
I know why.

Smile, this is just a hiccup,
don’t drag your feet, you’ll trip up.
Look right ahead,
and instead,
Wear a smile.

My Fathers Daughter

I am my Fathers daughter.
None shall lay me low,
Not life, nor stress, nor broken hearts,
Never letting go.

Never giving up on life
All the things I am,
and when it all comes crashing down,
Still, I will say I can.

My father taught me much I know
Life lessons all the rest,
Live and love with all your heart,
Give every day your best.

This storm has been a hard one,
still pounding on my heart.
Depression came and crushed my soul,
but here’s the winning part.

I am my Fathers daughter.
None shall lay me low,
Not life, nor stress, nor broken hearts,
Never letting go.

Sadness


Gotta get out of this pit Lord.
Gotta climb out of this part.
Some call it depression.
I call it repression.
Stuffing the hurt in my heart.

Gotta get out of this sadness,
Reclaim the joy in my soul.
Nothing so bad,
keeping me sad
Help me Dear Lord to feel whole.

Gotta find sunshine in rain Lord
Gotta hold onto me tight
Help me to see
All I can be,
and everything will be alright.

A Mothers Prayer

Jesus hold my children,
Encircled by Your arms.
Protect and guard their tender hearts,
Away from Worldly harm.
Keep them safe and healthy,
Walking by Your side.
Strong, but always humble,
Free from foolish pride.

Jesus hold my children,
Every minute, every day.
Fill them with Your Presence,
Teach them of Your Way.
To learn of Godly Value,
In everything they do.
Help me Lord, to raise them up,
To Love and Honor You.

Amen

Blessings to Moms everywhere!

Prayer

Giving it to You Lord,
every single part.
Every test, the worst , the best
not sure where to start.
I don’t have any answers
And I don’t have any plans
Faith is thin,
so caving in,
Could you please hold my heart.

Giving it to You Lord,
every single fear,
We’ve come a way, with more to go,
but could You meet me here.
the load is really heavy now,
Despite the best of me,
I get so lost along the way,
And sometimes cannot see.

So I’m giving it to You Lord.
There is no other way.
I am spent, and I am weak,
with trembling hands to pray.
Help me to be there for all,
even as it rains.
and know that You are with me still
To find my feet again.
