After a while you learn The subtle difference Between holding a hand And chaining a soul And you begin to learn That kisses aren’t contracts And presents aren’t promises And you begin to accept your defeats With your head up And your eyes open With the grace of a woman Not the grief of a child And you learn to build All your roads on today Because tomorrow’s ground Is too uncertain And futures have a way Of falling down in mid- flight After a while you learn That even sunshine burns If you get too much So you plant your own garden And decorate your own soul Instead of waiting For someone to bring you flowers And you learn That you really can endure That you really are strong That you really do have worth And you learn and learn With every goodbye you learn.
I'm a wife of 20 years to a husband that consistently chooses to love me despite my flaws and a mother of 3 wonderful, loving and giving children. I have 6 babies waiting for me up in Heaven. I'm imperfect, often broken and learning; you will see many aspects of what makes me the person I am throughout this blog. You will find no condemnation from me. I have my fair share of problems and battles, I win some and lose some but by God's grace I'm continuing in the good fight. I'm attempting to live life authentically and I enjoy the many blessings God has given both in happiness and pain. I don't have any formal education in Biblical Studies and I don't claim to be an expert. I'm just sharing experiences and lessons I am learning or trying to learn as I go through life.
