Coal Trucks on the Mountain and Other Lies U Told  / Your Greatest Fan.


Bottled up inside

Are the words I never said

The feelings that I hide

The lines you never read.


You can see it in my eyes,

Read it on my face;

Trapped inside are lies

Of the past I can't replace


With memories that linger-

Won't seem to go away,

Why can't I be happy?

Today's a brand new day.


Yesterday's are over

Even though the hurting's not

Nothing lasts forever

I must cherish what I've got.


Don't take my love for granted,

For soon it will be gone-

All you ever wanted

Of the love you thought you'd won.

I Sure Miss You  / Momma

 If life could only bring again,

the days I took for granted when

To hear your voice was

 just a call away

Oh what I'd give for just some time,

to say the things that slipped my mind

There's so much now I'd really like to say

 But I can never go back when

we did the things we did back then

I'll store those precious memories in my mind

I'll take what you've instilled in me;

I'll try to be all I can be

And walk the path that you have left behind

I sure miss you;

life will never be the same with you not here

Each passing day has brought much pain

But with God's grace my strength remains

I sure miss you, but heaven's sweeter with you there

The little things that seemed so small

are now gold in a memory vault

I cherish every one I have of you

Now I can see and recognize

]the part you played to shape my life

I often see you in the things I do

In God's design and master plan

 He saw the hurting hearts of man

As we would say goodbye to those so dear

So with our family and friends

we'll be together once again

We'll view all heaven's splendor hand in hand

In Memory of Ellen Thomas  / Marilyn

I lost a friend today. We met nine years ago when both our children were in the hospital being treated for cancer. We instantly became friends. We visted with each other in the hospital. We talked on the phone and wrote letters to each other. When her son died, my daughter and I went to her and her husband. When my daughter died, she and her husband came to us. Through the years we kept in touch. About two years ago, my dear friend emailed me and told me she had cancer and that she thought it wouldn't be long until she went to Heaven to be with her son, my daughter, and Jesus. Still she fought, never giving up hope. She never lost her trust in God. Today my friend died.

One by one we close our eyes in death.

In twenty years which ones of us will be gone?

In fifty years?

In a hundred?

Think about it. Really stop and think about it.

In a hundred years from now, most everyone who is alive now will probably be only a memory. Many of those won't even be a memory, only just a name on a family tree.

Life on this earth is fleeting. The Bible says it is like a vapor. James 4:14 Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.

This may sound depressing, but it is a fact. We are all going to die. There is no magical or scientific miracle that is going to keep us alive forever. Sounds pretty hopeless, doesn't it?

But there is hope. It is not found in material things, nor in science, nor in man. This hope is a living hope. This hope is in Christ Jesus. 1 Peter 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

We know that each day, each minute, each second brings us closer to death. We know that as time goes by that our bodies begin to wear out. Our bodies will fail. Our eyes will grow dim. And finally we will take that last breath.

But we should not become disheartened by this. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

Yes, death is sad, but there is something so wonderful beyond the veil. We can't even imagine how glorious Heaven is.It is a land of perfect peace, where there is no more trouble or heartache or cancer. There is no more death. It is a land where we can live eternally with our Lord.

It sounds almost too wonderful to be true. But Heaven is a real place, and I want to go there someday. My body wasn't meant to live here forever. This is just my dressing room. I'm getting ready to meet my Lord and make Heaven my home. Have you ever felt a restfulness deep inside, a yearning to go somewhere, but you don't know where it is that you want to go. I think God puts that in our hearts, so that we know that this is not the end.

So do you want to go there? The Bible says there is only one way and that is through the Lord Jesus Christ. He loves you with a love that is perfect and He is waiting for you. He died for our sins that we might have eternal life in Heaven with Him. It isn't something you need to wonder about. You will never figure it out. It's simple if you just believe!

Why am I writing this you might ask? Because I love you and want you to be with me in Heaven.

My friend died today. She will live on in the hearts of those who loved her. Most importantly she will live on through eternity in that great land called Heaven.

I have found in the years that have passed that I am most vulnerable at times of remembrance. The word "anniversary" no longer holds a promise of celebration. Instead, holidays and birthdays, family gatherings and otherwise joyous occasions contain an undertow of sorry. If I get caught up in it, I quickly get pulled under and wind up gasping for breath. It is ironic that the presence of an absence can be so emotionally devastating. -Bill Jenkins Deb Moore- "I clearly recall a gentle question, posed by a very kind woman...one Sunday morning after worship, "do you feel his presence?" Just as gently, with tears welling up and escaping..I replied, after thinking, and weighing my words first... " no. It's his absence that I feel. His absence is always present with me, especially so at events and occasions he would've been at....his absence is heavy in my private thoughts, my heart. " 8 years have passed. How can it be? So much to say, but it's all been said and done. So I'll just say- My sweet, angel girl, I love you so much, and I miss you with everything that is in me. Be waiting. It won't be long. -Mom Close

"IF" / Mom
"If" for Daughters If you can value truth above approval, and friendship over bueaty, wealth,or fame, If you can share your gifts and talents wisely, leaving someone better off than when you came... If you find happiness in simple pleasures If you have faith to keep right on believing in miracles that no one can explain, If you look until you see the good in others and keep your spirit honest, true, and free, Then you'll be, not just happy and successful, but the woman only you were meant yo be. If you could see all the flowers in the world, if you could hear all the laughter in the universe, if you could make all the dreams that ever were wished come true, then you would know a little part of the joy of having and loving a daughter like you..

Smile though your heart is aching Smile even though its breaking When there are clouds in the sky, youll get by If you smile through your fear and sorrow Smile and maybe tomorrow Youll see the sun come shining through for you Light up your face with gladness Hide every trace of sadness Although a tear may be ever so near Thats the time you must keep on trying Smile, whats the use of crying? Youll find that life is still worthwhile If you just smile. Thats the time you must keep on trying Smile, whats the use of crying? Youll find that life is still worthwhile Thinking so much of you today. So many memories of our precious little family and the good times we had. Through bittersweet tears, I remember you asking me about this song and how, no matter how difficult life got to be, you almost always wore a smile.I love you so much, baby girl! Close

I saw your group tonight. And you were there-in my heart! I love you, my sweet Rach!

Can I, Lord?  / Mom   Read >>
Can I, Lord?  / Mom
Can I Lord?

Can I rest here awhile Lord?

Can I lay my head upon your lap?

Will you brush aside the strands of my hair and whisper, I love you?

Can I worship you in silence and not feel like I have to perform?

Will your love still abound if I say nothing?

I long to know that being with you, in your presence, is enough.

Can I lay my armor down for awhile Lord?

The armor of defense I often wear to survive in this uncertain world.

Shall I rest in silence knowing you will take care of me tonight?

You are the Vine, the core, the strength.

I am merely a branch weak and frail, though you say I am vital.

Am I vital enough to be grafted into your heart tonight Lord?

Are you strong enough to hold me, let me rest and give me peace?

Yes...I believe you are.

"For all the promises of God are yes and amen" - 2 Corinthians 1:20

Weeping willow with your tears running down,

why do you always weep and frown?

Is it because he left you one day?

is it because he could not stay?

On your branches he would swing,

do you long for the happiness that day would bring?

He found shelter in your shade.

You thought his laughter would never fade.

Weeping willow, stop your tears.

There is something to calm you fears.

You think death has ripped you forever apart.

But I know he'll always be in your heart.
