“There is someone that I love even though I don’t approve of what he does. There is someone I accept though some of his thoughts and actions revolt me. There is someone I forgive though he hurts the people I love the most. That person is……me.”

“We can do no great things, just small things with great love. It is not how much you do, but how much love you put into doing it.”

Slow down young lady
This is getting crazy
When you see him you flutter
And your heart melts like butter
You act really stupid
Cause you’ve been hit by cupid
You’ve got a big crush
So bad that you blush
When you hear his name
You’re almost insane
What I’m saying is true
And because I love you
I’m butting into your business
And saying get over this sickness
He’s ruining your life
And you won’t even fight
Your world is messed up and when you asked why
You wouldn’t believe when we said it’s that guy
Why can’t you see what he’s done to you girl?
When I find that you’re with him I’m ready to hurl
All that jerk gives is pain, guilt, and rejection
He’s a user, you see, he just drains your affection
Break up, lose him, and get rid of him please
Save yourself, I’m begging, down on my knees
I’m praying you listen this time through my poem
Forget him, come back, you’re loved here at home
God loves you more than any guy ever could
He made you special and knows that you should
Be treated with respect, loved and adored
You know it’s the truth so believe what you’ve heard.

Giving. It’s the new black.

This post is dedicated to Sevenly. I love Sevenly. I love what they do. I love the causes they support. I love what they stand for. I love that they are changing the world. I love that they let me (and you if you want) change the world with them.

Sevenly is all about giving. AND I love that. So give. Not for praise, adoration, recognition, or acceptance. Give because it’s right. Give because that is something that binds us together. Everyone can give. I give time a lot because it is more readily available. I don’t have much money to give, but I still give it too. Give love. Give hope. Give grace. Give peace. Give laughter. Just GIVE!!! You might just change the world.

The greatest of these is…

LOVE. That’s the answer. Love is the greatest.

Back in December of last year, I found out about Art Journaling. Basically, it’s taking a day, word, time of life, question, etc and making art from it. (If you want to see other people’s journal pictures/inspirations my Blogged and Paper boards on pinterest have links to them.) I used the word “love.” AND with my art journal, some paint, colored pencils, homemade modge podge, some oil pastels, and a couple of pages ripped from an old stinky book (no way I was gonna read a smell that bad. GROSS!) this is what happened :)

This page (and post) was inspired by Continue reading


light and dark
contrast, compare
evil and good
they are always there

dry and wet
different, the same
cold and hot
there is always pain

empty and full
opposites, alike
peace and war
there is always some spite

birth and death
below, above
joy and sorrow
there is always love
