My Child, My Heart
My children mean everything to me, and I know that I am blessed to be their mother. I want to leave them with love, my writings, and my faith. I pray for them every night; for protection, and for God to bless them in every way.
The Country Church
My paternal grandparents were strong Christians and lived in West Virginia. They went to a little country church in a single wide trailer, and the services were always beautiful. This poem is a result of my experiences there.
Window of Time
I spent many years raising my two children and being a wife. I enjoyed that time in my life, but due to past issues as a child, there were still days I felt depressed. It was during one of those days, that I chose to write this poem.
I wrote this poem after realizing that I have often missed God's messages to me. It is so easy to get caught up in life, and miss what is most important. This poem, I believe, reflects that.
