Sitting and Thinking
As I sit here thinking what does life mean?
I know everyone goes over this question all the time.
But I do know this…..
God gives us Life……
God gave us the best thing ever, Jesus!
I have my husband, children, grandchildren and my wonderful adopted children.
My family and friends!
Lord, please help my dreaming…..
But none of that means anything unless I have Jesus in my life.
He brings peace and love. He has given me life!
I look around me and realize how bless I am but none of this means anything to me and or doesn’t make me happy if I don’t have peace and love.
I can write all the poems in the world about love and longing for love, about broken hearts and I can be called the Love Poet. But it is still not true love.
Flowers of my dreams
So you ask, what is important to me?
Well, all the above means the world to me, some more than others.
Although, my love for my husband my adoring children and my grandchildren never leaves me empty. But just knowing as a responsible adult that I must always do the right thing, although sometimes I want to run a muck, throw caution to the wind, do something wild. Then God throws reality in my face.
I am getting old I am not the young person I used to be, but you know what? I wouldn’t have it any other way. God knows what he is doing.
Sitting here looking out the window on this sunny peaceful day. Talking to my son on Facebook knowing a new baby will be here in seven months, I sign with relief.
I am happy. I am relieved. God knows what He is doing.
I want to thank Joseph De Cross aka Lord De Cross….
For writing that wonderful hub on being a Grandmother!
If you haven’t read it here is the link. You will love it.
Reading his hub made me realize where my loyalties lay…..
My Jesus and my family!
There are so many caring, God fearing and loving people here on the Hub. Thank you all for being my friends.
Teaches on the hub, wrote this hub on being a long distance grandparent… I agree, it is so hard to be away from my grandchildren.
I love her hub……
Plus, the hubbers, my friends, that might not think like I do but love me anyway, you know that really amazes me…… We do not have to think alike to be friends.
I am learning
I am becoming
I am loved
I am loved
I am so loved
For the one that knows me best
For the one who knows my secrets loves me most!
We are free to love each other.
I am loved.
I am releasing these words on this page, the battles in my soul are easing, and I am accepting and loving…… I am loved….
I can risk loving you!
For one person battle of death is over, but for the rest of us, the war rages on, at what point does the cost of survival become too high a price for us to pay and for us to live on?
I think we need to fight for survival and keep believing we can win, I really believe this is so!
God Bless you all far and wide……
