My New Book … When A Child Sings

When A Child Sings

Dear family, friends and those who I have yet to know as friends,

It is with much joy that I share with you my new book … When A Child Sings.
For the young, young at heart and children of God.

When A Child Sings, in essence, follows on from where my last book, Sunrays and Lily Smiles finished.

More poetry/devotions/song lyrics/hymns, and as a special gift, a six part children’s story, based on a delightful bunny named Sherbert, and her friends.

Please take a look inside on the following link. E-book will be available very soon if that is your preferred method to read.

Reviews welcome.

A beautiful present for any age, any occasion.

To God be the glory.

Thank You

To my sweet friends, family and loyal supporters who have been continuing to visit my blog whilst I haven’t been posting, thank you so much.

I have been busy preparing material for my third book, soon to be released. It is basically volume 2 of Sunrays and Lily Smiles, a compilation of all I have written since it was published.

More to follow …

 

I LEFT MY HEART BEHIND (Song Lyrics)

colorful roses bouquest vector

All the years we’ve been together
I’ve been unable to love you
Love you as I truly should have
Love as only a loved heart can
Hard to do when it’s bound in time
Fighting hard against God’s best plan

Chorus
I’m so very sorry
I left my heart behind
I left it in the past
Each beat left to unwind
But this heart is thawing
Life’s sunshine spreads its rays
Each beat can now rejoice
Safe in His healed ways

Each time it hurt and joy suppressed
When those memories came to haunt
I’d hide so very deep inside
Not caring for who I now am
So when love, it came a-calling
It brought me forth as God’s own lamb

Chorus
I’m so very sorry
I left my heart behind
I left it in the past
Each beat left to unwind
But this heart is thawing
Life’s sunshine spreads its rays
Each beat can now rejoice
Safe in His healed ways

Tears, they can no longer threaten
To wash and diminish the pain
My new heart can now receive yours
Don’t emotionally pull away
Our two hearts bound eternally
’Cause this love’s heart is here to stay

Chorus
I’m so very sorry
I left my heart behind
I left it in the past
Each beat left to unwind
But this heart is thawing
Life’s sunshine spreads its rays
Each beat can now rejoice
Safe in His healed ways

The Everlasting Rose

vector beautiful red rose illustration
My love, My love, take a petal from the rose
Take a petal from the rose that I gave you

Each one holds a key to the secret gift
Oh! Let Love restore the brokenness in you

The petal of hope
It’s filled with new dreams
With all of My love
Deserts into streams

The petal of joy
It’s filled with new praise
New oil to anoint
And flow through your days

The petal of peace
It’s filled with comfort
Embrace all given
My arms will support

The petal of love
What more can I say
The petal of choice
Along life’s hard way

My love, My love, take a petal from the rose
Take a petal from the rose that I gave you

Each one holds a key to the secret gift
Oh! Let Love restore the brokenness in you

Yes, there’s a petal of encouragement
A petal, soft and grand
A petal for when discouragement
Leaves a heart sunk in grief’s sand

Petals, a petal
Purity, serene
Words cannot write words
To grasp a rose, so serene

So take what I’ve given you
It’s a balm for where it hurts
Let the fragrance of the perfect rose
The fragrance of the perfect rose
Fill you deep within, so very deep within
Each petal, a rose story, red covers every sin

My love, My love, take a petal from the rose
Take a petal from the rose that I gave you

Each one holds a key to the secret gift
Oh! Let Love restore all brokenness in you

Stones of Emptiness

rocky heart
For every stone of emptiness
That’s been placed within your heart
May pearls of love replace them
May joy mend all that’s torn apart

For every confusing moment
When your mind feels null and void
May songs sing their melody
May peace’s sweet notes fill all destroyed

For every time of painful loss
Where each breath is hard to breathe
May unconditional hope
Bind life to your past’s sorrow-wreath

For every tear stained memory
Traumas enclosed in sadness
With compassion I give you
A bouquet of roses’ gladness

© 2016 Liana Wendy Howarth

Inspired by Isaiah 34:11c “ … and he shall stretch out upon it the line of confusion, and the stones of emptiness”; Genesis 1:2a “And the earth was without form, and void …” and God’s deep love for us, not wanting us to hurt.

She Wears Her Red Today

Ellen Carr

red dress smaller image-864107_640

She wears her red today,
bias-cut and flouncy,
her hair let loose and wild,
a-tumbling and bouncy,
and scarlett lips,
bright fingertips.

She rides the train to town,
with chocolate bars for munching,
credit card at hand,
money spare for lunching,
meeting her friends,
for exuberant ends.

She stops to hear a busker
singing in the street,
empties coins into his hat,
and taps to his drum beat.
Her spirits are high;
she could virtually fly.

While waiting for her friends
her feet are almost dancing,
the rythmn of her heart,
her silent joy enhancing.
Life’s as it should be,
breezy, sweet and free.

The scars beneath her clothes,
clear but fading slowly,
are reminders of her days
of worry, feeling lowly.
Now that is the past;
she is free at last.

She celebrates her healing,
in food and wine and laughter,
rejoicing with her friends
for her happy ever…

A Mourning Revelation

sunflower

During sweet prayer time this morning the Lord revealed something beautiful to me:

In our GRIEVING there is no comfort.

His word says in Psalm 30:5b “ … weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning”.

In Matthew 5:4 “Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted”.

WEEPING (SOUNDS SO SIMILAR TO GRIEVING) MAY ENDURE FOR A NIGHT, BUT JOY COMETH IN THE MORNING (SOUNDS SO SIMILAR TO MOURNING).

Comfort comes when we mourn. There is joy in comfort.

Let’s take the Living Word deep into our heart. He is life and life eternal.

For any interested in understanding the difference between grief and mourning, please ask the Father to reveal His truth to you.

Please remember, should you wish to comment, that this is what He spoke gently to me. To all who love Him, He shows revelation personally. Your understanding may differ to mine.

God bless you all.

HOLY SPIRIT (A Prayer or Song Lyrics)

HOLY SPIRIT PRAYER OR SONG LYRICS

When You breathe in me
Thoughts once evil are banished
When You breathe in me
Unpure thoughts, they all but vanish

When You act in me
Actions tell of Your love
When You act in me
All actions are powered from above

When You draw my heart
I’m drawn away from me
When You draw my heart
God’s love is all I see

When You strengthen me
Holy Spirit, I am empowered
When You strengthen me
The enemy is devoured

When You, in love, guard me
In love, I am protected
When You, in love, guard me
Hope flourishes and is resurrected
