Breathe

There’s a pounding in my ears that won’t go away
My face, it aches from these tears today
But I need the release. I need the cleansing
That comes from this water. A salty rinsing.

Tears streaming down my face
Can’t hold them back
They won’t go back
I’m so alone and out of place
I can’t hear you
I can’t feel you

I could shed, a thousand tears
But they won’t wash away a thousand years
Every strained and gasping breath
A wet heart cry for some rest

Tears streaming down my face
I need you, Lord
I need your grace
I can’t go on, I’m so afraid
I must hear you
I must feel you

My lungs do burn, gasping for the air
I want to heal but I can’t go there
I’m addicted to my aching heart
Pain owns my mind right from the start

Tears streaming down my face
I hurt myself
To my disgrace
Heal me God, oh heal my pain!
I need to hear you!
I need to feel you!

Please!
Help me learn to
Breathe!
I’m down here on my
Knees!
Oh dear God, please take me!
Save me!

Tears streaming down my face
I’ve felt your love
I’ve felt your grace
You’ve given me your breath today
I can hear you
I can feel you
Breathe

Photocopier

I want to be your photocopy
I want us to have lines of symmetry
I want us to be exactly the same
That is what I work for everyday

Come on, come on let us be the same
Come on, come on let me follow your steps
Come on, come on I want to live this way
Living life to the very best

I want to be your photocopy
I want to know that you love me
I want us to be together always
Living in love for the rest of my days

Come on, come on let us be the same
Come on, come on let me follow your steps
Come on, come on I want to live this way
Living life to the very best

Photocopying is the way to go
It gives me purpose when I’m feeling low
I’ll continue copying till my time is through
Then I’ll be perfect like you

Come on, come on let us be the same
Come on, come on let me follow your steps
Come on, come on I want to live this way
Living life to the very best

I’m not perfect, but you are
Photocopying will get us far
I want to copy you and no one else
So I can live my life to its very best

Come on, come on let us be the same
Come on, come on let me follow your steps
Come on, come on I want to live this way
Living life to the very best
Living life to the very best
Living life
To the very best

Chosen Child (A special song for Katie)

A little girl sings
Just a daydream
An imagination
Of who she wants to be
When she’s grown
She will dance
She will fly
She will soar, by and by
Her future’s open
God’s chosen child

She can move mountains
With her life in His hands
She is so special
Chosen, loved and beautiful

A young lady sings
Just a daydream
An imagination
Of who she’s gonna be
When she’s grown
She has a purpose
And she will go
She will change the whole world
She is called as
God’s chosen child

She can move mountains
With her life in His hands
She is so special
Chosen, loved and beautiful

A grown woman sings
Just a daydream
An imagination
Of who she wants to be
Now she’s grown
She has memories
And she’ll make more
There’s a world to be loved
For they can be
God’s chosen child

She can move mountains
With her life in His hands
She is so special
Chosen, loved and beautiful

A gray maiden sings
Just a daydream
An imagination
Of who you can be
Before you’re grown
You have a purpose
You are unique
You can change the whole world
You are called
God’s chosen child

You can move mountains
With your life in His hands
You are so special
Chosen, loved and beautiful

You can move mountains
With your life in His hands
You are so special
Chosen, loved and beautiful

Quotes and Recipes

I love posting all of these quotes and kinda want to make those image quotes with the random backgrounds. Maybe with instagram photos???

In other news, I’m making a cookbook of all our family recipes. That’s mostly why my posting has diminished in the last week. I had no idea we had so many recipes!!! I’ll have to share some with you (: Or maybe just link you to the eBook when I get it finished!

To conclude this extremely short post, here’s a random fact:

Accordion to a recent survey, replacing words with the names of musical instruments in a sentence often goes undetected.

Have a wonderful day!!!

Seriously stifled laughter occurred

I told you the other day that I had found some of my old stories. The Case of the Missing Tap Shoe is one of them. Oh my goodness. I had forgotten how funny I could be. It’s like college ruined something in my creativity and I’m just now rediscovering it. It’s been long enough that I couldn’t remember what happened in the story. SO very many of them have been like this. I’ve found plot lines that were sketched out, just waiting for enough words to be added to call them chapters or stories.

The laughter came while reading this story. There is a character called Elinor (one of my favoritest names in the world, by the way) and she is so real and familiar. And she is funny. I love her frankness and way of speaking. Is that strange to say??? I mean, I know she doesn’t really exist, but part of me wonders what kid I was babysitting at the time to inspire such a character. Then again, it may just be my strange sense of humor causing me to crack up. Who knows? It probably didn’t help that I was reading this at around 3am last night. Nearly everything in existence is hilarious to me at 3am. It’s just a fact. It’s also the reason I had to hold my mouth shut as tears streamed down my face. Yes, I was laughing that hard. However, since one brother was still on the xbox and the other was at the Hobbit, the odds of me waking anyone up were 50% lower than normal. The odds were in my favor.

Dissection

Analyze my work! This is a dare!
Go ahead! Scavenge and tear!
Taste and devour! It is your own choice.
You can destroy my work, but not silence my voice!
I can say what I want, but that’s not my goal.
It is instead to express heart and soul,
To say my emotions in words if I can,
To state my morals, and explain where I stand.
It matters not if you disagree
Opinions were, are, and always will be
Open to discussion; firm, yet not fact;
Able to persuade when stated with tact,
And they cause fights and bond us together.
I’ll stop here, but I could go on forever!
The point is, what I’m trying to say
For once would you please, just keep away!
Let my work speak for itself
It can, you know, without all your help.
Don’t give depth where none was before
And skip over meaning you wish to ignore.
My message in this is really quite plain
Adding to my words would drive us both insane.

Learning to Write

Learning to write. It might sound odd, but this is what I’m learning to do. No, not write as in stories, posts, papers, essays or letters. I mean physically learning to write. My right hand is my dominant hand or my “writing” hand. My left hand does other things. It types, washes dishes, paints nails, holds stuff… but it doesn’t write.

Today I began the process of teaching my left hand to write. It is severely more painful than I originally expected. Not pain as in self esteem, but physically painful. My hand is cramping like nobody’s business!!! But it’s worth it. At least I hope so. Does being able to write consistently well with both hands ever come in handy?? (Get it? “Hand”y? haha! Cheesy, but admit it, you giggled.) One day it will be. I feel sure of it!

Here’s my “A” page from today :)

Does anyone else decide to learn something new, even when that new thing sounds odd to be learning?? I can’t be the only one who does this!
