The Bend in the Road

When we feel we have nothing left to give
And we are sure that the song has ended,
When our day seems over and the shadows fall
And the darkness of night has descended,
Where can we go to find the strength
To valiantly keep on trying?
Where can we find the hand that will dry
The tears that the heart is crying?

There’s but one place to go and that is to God,
 And dropping all pretence and pride,
We can pour out our problems without restraint
And gain strength with Him at our side.

And together we stand at life’s cross roads
And view what we think is the end,
But God has a much bigger vision,
And He tells us it’s only a bend.

For the road goes on and is smoother,
And the pause in the song is a rest,
And the part that’s unsung and unfinished
Is the sweetest and richest and best.

So rest and relax and grow stronger
Let go and let God share your load.
Your work is not finished or ended
You’ve just come to a bend in the road.

Bring On The Rain

Wow, winter over, Spring here & most definatly, it's Maine....April showers do bring May flowers, however we are predicted to have rain for this week, ever day!
I get it really I do.
Not most people do.
Ya can't fight the weather.
We had an extrmely mild winter & I say bring on the rain!

Another day has almost come and gone,
Can't imagine what else could go wrong.
Sometimes I'd like to hide away somewhere and lock the door.
A single battle lost but not the war.

'Cause tomorrow's another day
and I'm thirsty anyway
So bring on the rain.

It's almost like the hard times circle 'round.
A couple drops and they all start comin down.
Yeah, I might feel defeated,
I might hang my head,
I might be barely breathing, but I'm not dead.

No, cause tomorrow's another day,
and I'm thirsty anyway,
So bring on the rain.

No I'm not gonna let it get me down.
I'm not cry,
and I'm not gonna lose any sleep tonight.
'Cause tomorrow's another day,
and I am not afraid,

so bring on the rain.
tomorrow's another day,
and I'm thirsty anyway,

so bring on the rain.

No I'm not gonna let get me down,
I'm not gonna cry.

so bring on the rain.
Bring on the rain
Bring on the rain

Once again it's been awhile since I have written & I am finding peace in music, writing, pictures, books, and just being w/me.
Life just grabs ahold of you, but I am fighting back, getting healthy, following DR's orders & I know feel refreshed because we have a plan....after all these years, I have a plan & a path!

This is my path, relaxation, inner peace, and home.....I'll write more when I get a computer again & I am up & running.  yes that is a swim.....I have a great team of supporters & they said they'd be there w/me thru this all....EXCITED!

Happy Spring 2012
