“Like a Bridge Over Troubled Water”

Lillie Mae a post by Loman. It’s been one week since our Lillie passed and there is not a day that goes by when I don’t think about her.  As an only child, I have always found true friendship in my animals.  Their innocence and unconditional love has always given me strength as well as…

Lillie Mae / “Constant”

This past week was one of the most trying times of my life. Full of interviews, Teacher Work Sampling and Placement, I spent my Spring Break in Chattanooga. It truly was a great week for us, although we were both incredibly stressed. I had an interview at my dream school on Thursday and while I…

“The Dog Days Are Over”

Life’s been a bit of a whirlwind lately with placement, Dance Marathon, job interviews and everything else that’s been going on. Hence, the lack of blog posting. However, in the midst of all this chaos and craziness, there have definitely been celebratory moments, times, and people I wish I could put in a bottle to…

“After the Storm”

Simply Beautiful. There are NO words other than these today. “After the Storm” And after the storm, I run and run as the rains come And I look up, I look up, on my knees and out of luck, I look up. Night has always pushed up day You must know life to see decay…

You Are For Me

This week has been a pretty trying one. I go to placement. Go home for 30 minutes to an hour. Then, I go to work. The current state of events have made me feel so cut off from my life as I once knew it, and such drastic change never sits too well with me….

“Iris”

I don’t recall what I was watching tonight but I heard the song “Iris” by the Goo Goo Dolls, an “oldie but goodie” as Joanna would call it. Its such a powerful song and for reason I’ve been really drawn to it tonight. It seems the closer things get to being the way I want…

“To Make You Feel My Love”

To Make You Feel My Love When the rain is blowing in your face And the whole world is on your case I could offer you a warm embrace To make you feel my love When the evening shadows and the stars appear And there is no one to dry your tears I could hold…

Change

I’ve never enjoyed not knowing. It drives the obsessive compulsive nature in me crazy. Not knowing also equates to not being in control-yet another thing I strongly abhor. However, at this point in my life, I’m plagued with unanswered questions and doubts about the future. I’ve found myself on edge and apprehensive about everything lately…

“Joseph’s Lullaby”

Belinda’s favorite Christmas song of 2010 Joseph’s Lullaby Go to sleep my Son This manger for your bed You have a long road before You Rest Your little head Can You feel the weight of Your glory? Do You understand the price? Does the Father guard Your heart for now So You can sleep tonight?…

“Born in Bethlehem”

Loman’s favorite Christmas song of 2010. Born in Bethlehem Baby Jesus, born in a stable, humble Savior’s birth. You left your throne in Heaven above, to live here on the Earth. Baby Jesus, lying in a manger, crying for the world. The Angels told the Shepherds of the Good News for us all. Hallelujah, the…
