Missing You Dear Friend

cute cat and dog picture 2

When distance flies between us
When old time, it flutters by
When seasons choose to leave us
When hello becomes goodbye

When telephones stop ringing
When the letterbox seems sad
When emotions are silent
When relationships go bad

Oh! That’s the way of the stranger
Please don’t let our hearts disconnect
I’m here for you still, my dear friend
May our strong bond, sweet love, reflect

It doesn’t mean we have to speak daily
It doesn’t mean flowers have to be sent
It doesn’t mean we must know everything
Just having you in my life … I’m content

Are You Joyful Or Hurting This Mother’s Day?

I posted this two years ago … always relevant so have posted again today.

Boy with Flower for Mom

Wishing all Mother’s a very blessed day.

Girl with Flower for Mom

Thanking the Lord for the gift of our Mothers.

For their love.

Nuturing.

Presence.

Presents.

Understanding.

Tolerance.

Discipline.

Advice.

Willingness to listen.

Perception.

Hopes and dreams for us.

Encouragement.

Comfort.

Trust.

And for those who are truly blessed … their prayers.

Their ‘just being Mum’ and being there.

And I could go on and on and on.

But I wish to lift prayers for those who …

Sad Little BoySad Girl

Never knew their Mother.

Never felt loved by her.

Never felt they could tell her secrets.

Never felt safe in her presence.

Never felt her arms wrapped lovingly, protectively around them.

Never felt cherished.

Never felt secure.

Never felt trusted.

And not forgetting those who have lost their Mothers.

Or whose Mothers are very ill.

Or overseas.

Or out of touch.

And I could go on and on and on …

May the Lord wrap you in His arms and give you all the love, peace and joy that you so desperately need and continue to search for.

I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are Thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

 My substance was not hid from Thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.

 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

 How precious also are Thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!

 If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with Thee.’  Psalm 139:14-18 KJV

May there be much joy and forgiveness this day and from this day forth.

Cry. Forgive. God loves you.

Children, there are Mothers desperately waiting for your call.

Mothers, there are daughters desperately waiting for your call.

Mothers, there are sons desperately waiting for your call.

‘For with God nothing shall be impossible.’  Luke 1:37 KJV

… I MISS YOU SO MUCH MUM …

WHEN HURT CAN HURT NO MORE (A Song of Encouragement When a Relationship Ends)

WHEN HURT CAN HURT NO MORE

WHEN HURT CAN HURT NO MORE
Every time you leave, you leave
A thorn within my heart
But time and memories restore
What love has torn apart

Chorus
When hurt can hurt no more, no more
When hurt’s had its final say, go away
You cannot hurt me anymore, anymore
‘Cause this heart grows stronger every day

It used to be I’d hang on to
The sweetness of your words
But then I realized the truth
Reality was heard

Chorus
When hurt can hurt no more, no more
When hurt’s had its final say, go away
You cannot hurt me anymore, anymore
‘Cause this heart grows stronger every day

When you told me that you loved me
I saw it in your eyes
I had fallen deeply, so deep
Believed in all your lies

Chorus
When hurt can hurt no more, no more
When hurt’s had its final say, go away
You cannot hurt me anymore, anymore
‘Cause this heart grows stronger every day

And then you were gone, no goodbye
Another love worn crime
The thorn tore at my healed heart
Tore it for the last time

You may have left; but you’re not forgotten
You may have broken me once too often
You may have thought I was worthless, a game
But one day love’s hurt, your heart, will tame

Once I was defeated, so hurt
Ripped apart, so unsure
But now my heart’s free with new love
And hurt can hurt no more

Oh! Hurt can hurt no more, no more
Hurt can hurt no more

Joy-Drops (A Song of Encouragement)

JOY DROPSWhen one fine day, dark clouds appear
Upon the horizon of my mind
Change skies of sunswept blue
Into weeping memories of you
I cannot help but linger there
‘Cause the pain, it washes over
But He turns every little teardrop
Into a joy-drop for me

Yes, He turns every little sorrow
Every tear that goes unseen
Turns them inside out and cleanses them
With His power releases them
With the love of Love’s love He wept for me

Every little teardrop from never-ending fountain
Every little teardrop from deserts no longer blooming
Every stream of this facial valley that’s been marred
He’s turned into precious joy-drops for me

Yes, little golden dreams of sun-drops
He casts a rainbow over me
Casts a rainbow over me
Casts a rainbow over me
The flood has gone
And I have won
Because I’m kept
In the joy-light of His Son
