My Friend...

I see the clouds rolling in and oh how it looks like rain
And it is always I fight for the welcome change
When it rains it pours on this heart of mine
So, I take the storms I feel to her each time.
But I know she has lived under her own pouring rain
Yet under her water her heart still doesn't change
She can walk away from what hangs overhead
And, not in her storm, are words left unsaid.
Not in her storm have I ever felt alone
Her storm ends, so I, may find my way home
It's for me that she pushes away her own rain
So, that I may find comfort in calling her name.
She lives in this world for the sake of another's heart
God, how she eases the miles when worlds apart
And she never wanders when your world falls through
Not ever in her storm would she do this to you.
She has wings that I know not only I can see
Cause only an angel could find strength to carry me
It's the way that the eyes can surely view
How her heart's written so clearly in what an angel can do.
Not in her storm is her work ever done
And even in her storm she hands me the sun
When her world is dark - I always have light
And now how I hold the new color of night.
She takes then she gives to an unhappy face
So that many can find a healing place
I have been able to love her more every day
And with her hand in mine the clouds roll away.
Not in any storm that I will ever live beneath
Could ever change what I hold here inside of me
Not in any of her storms have I lost my angels touch
To that angel out there, I love you so much!

My Baby Sis and Her Perfect Match

My Little Sister, Leah, (she is 7 years my junior; I'm 25, so you can do the math) in the past year has fallen in love and is planning to get married next year. She is a lot more determined than I was about marriage. She wants to finish her training as an esthetician first. She leaves for school in Prince George the end of June. Her man is Ryan Wiebe. His family has been close friends of our family for years and Leah has loved Ryan for a long time. We're so excited to be able to witness first hand the bond that God is growing between them as they grow closer together. It reminds me of the beginning of my relationship with Mark. Its so new and exciting. Its really hard but what an adventure. I wouldn't trade this journey for anything!

Little Miracle

I just wanted to share this great little bit of info.
My great friend and cousin, Jenny and my other great friend/brother and cousin in law, Jeremy are expecting their first little one. We are all very excited for them. God is so good! He is faithful and knows our hearts desires!
<----This is their beautiful little baby!
We Love You & are praying for you

My Garden

I am afraid to plant this seed.
The sun is warm,
The earth is rich and ready,
But the days go by, And still no planting.
The springtime of my life is passing, too.
And five years' planting in a willing soil have borne no living fruit.
So many times I've waited, Hoped, Believed, That God and nature Would perform a miracle incredible but common.

Nothing grew. And often times I feel the mystery of life and growth is known to all but me, or that reality is not as it appears to be.
I have a choice:To put aside this seed, leaving the planting to the proven growers, pretending not to care for gardening, and knowing if I do not try I cannot fail.Or plant, And risk again the well known pain of watching for the first brave green and seeing only barren ground.He also spoke about a seed, the mustard's tiny grain, almost too small to see, But, oh - the possibilities!Those who doubt, who fear, are not inclined to cultivate it.But it was to them He spoke.And God remembered Sarah...Rachel...Hannah...Elizabeth...The seed is in my hand, The trowel in the other; I am going to the garden and the Gardener,
Once More.
