Beggar who gives alms

Beggar who gives alms by Downhere
"There are no mystic jewels, embedded in my prose,

No moonlit haloed cherubs, perched on my piano,

No lyrics laced with pixie dust, no angels sings along.

I am just a beggar who gives alms


Gold and silver have I none, but such I have give thee,

Borrowed words from the one, who gave the gift to me,

The pearl that I could never buy, this life, this dream, this song,

And I am just a beggar who gives alms

I am not the creator, but a scribe with a pen,

I'm recreating visions, through a cracked and broken lens,

Only one has ever seen the home for which we long,

And I am just a beggar who gives alms."

If I Never Knew You

"I'd rather die tomorrow than live a hundred years without knowing you" John Smith- Disney's Pcoahontas <--- watch this!

"If I never knew you

If i never felt this love

I would have no inkling of

How precious life can be

And if I never held you

I would never have a clue

How at last I'd find in you

The missing part of me.

In this world so full of fear

Full of rage and lies

I can see the truth so clear

In your eyes

So dry your eyes

And I'm so grateful to you

I'd hve lived my whole life through

Lost forever

If I never knew you"

Cheesy time!

" When you are in Love you can't fall asleep because reality is better than your dreams. "

-- Dr Suess

No I am not in love with anyone! haha
I just thought it was a cute cheesy quote. It reminded me of that other quote about dreams I posted the other day...

Irish Blessing

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face;

The rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,

May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

~traditional gaelic blessing

Men and Women Part II

Oliver Wendell Holmes

So true, no?

"If you love me only in my dreams, let me be asleep forever."


Okay okay, super cheesy quote today! I just thought it was so cute. I have felt that way. I don't know about you but I struggle with facing reality. Sometime life seems too hard and in your dreams everything goes right. There was a time when I would lie in bed trying to dream or sleep, just to get away from it all. I realize now that I have to face the world and my life, I can't hide from it. The best thing is I'm not doing it alone. I have the Sovereign God of the universe behind me, leading me if only I would allow Him. Think about that today. Are you hiding from your life? Do you just want to pretend and dream all day or will you face your destiny?

Do you hear the people sing...

All the forces in the world are not so powerful as an idea whose time has come.

Those three little words...

"It's so easy, To think about Love, To Talk about Love, To wish for Love, But it's not always easy, To recognize Love, Even when we hold it.... In our hands."

Isn't the phrase "I love you" so overused yet underused in it's true meaning. Let's remember today not only of human love but of the divine love of our Father in heaven. John 3:16, th most profound verse (to me anyway) in the whole Bible. Everytime I read it or remember it I can help but wonder why He did it. Why would He allow His Son to die for the world? It blows my mind but I am so eternally grateful for it. <3

It's worth fighting for

Frodo: I can't do this, Sam.

Sam: I know. It's all wrong. By rights we shouldn't even be here. But we are. It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn't. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something.

Frodo: What are we holding onto, Sam?

Sam: That there's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo... and it's worth fighting for.
^--- favorite quote from the entire LOTR trilogy. <3
We watched Twin Towers last night! Such an awesome movie!
