WHAT IF TODAY WAS YOUR LAST DAY? WOULD YOU BE A BETTER PERSON?

If we all tried to live like every day was our last day, would the world be a better place? Just a thought!

LAST DAY

Last Day!

If this was your last day on earth
How would you want to live?
Would you stop taking all you could
And only try to give?

If this was your last day on earth
Would you forgive your foes?
Would you drop meanness from your heart
And see how far love goes?

If this was your last day on earth
Do you think you would speak?
Would you help others who are down
And save them from their weak?

If this was your last day on earth
Would you make your wrongs right?
Would you let other people know
That love is God’s true light?

This could be your last day on earth
So why waste it on hate?
Do good and when you’re called above
You’ll find an opened gate!

LET THE SEASON BEGIN!

This time of year is magical. It gives us hope and renews our faith. However, for some, it also brings on a deep inner sadness. I think that most of us experience the highs and lows of the holiday season. I also think that for some, the sadness is overwhelming. It is important for us to be aware of those around us and to try and reach out to help those in need. It is just as important to be aware of how you are feeling, and if you need help, let those around you know. After all, we are in this together and together, we can do anything.

Stockings & Bows

As we begin to decorate
Hang stockings and red bows,
Please keep in mind that many folks
Are dealing with some lows!

Though Christmastime is filled with joy
It’s also filled with tears,
For in our mind, it brings about
The changes of past years!

The couple you saw buying toys
Two children by their side,
Are barely hanging on right now
Last year, their baby died!

The man who asked you for some help
So he can make ends meet,
Does not want presents for his kids
He just wants them to eat!

The woman you saw in the store
Whose actions made you mad,
Is dealing with her husband’s death
And kids, that have no dad!

The family who sat down to eat
And chose to say a prayer,
Now fill a plate with memories
To set by grandma’s chair!

The child you saw throw a fit
And thought, “He is not right,”
Is dealing with his first real loss
His puppy died last night!

So as we start to decorate
Hang stockings and red bows,
We need to say a loving prayer
To help folks through their lows!

For Christmas is a wondrous time
That’s filled with love and light,
A time to honor His great gift
And do all that is right!

With joyous hope and Yuletide cheer
Let this great season start,
But keep in mind that some folks need
A blessing from our heart!

Bullies Kill!

The new school year is upon us. Unfortunately, for some children, it brings nothing but fear and shame. They know that they will, once again, have to deal with being bullied. We need to be on high alert and make sure that our children are safe! Please, if you suspect that your child is being bullied, or that your child is a bully, do something about it! They need our help! This is the only way to put an end to bullycide!

My Last Goodbye

Today I had to say goodbye
And close his casket door,
His bully got the best of him
And he could take no more!

He really tried to stay around
And make it through this year,
But every day was just the same
He tired of the fear!

My child was a special kid
Who had so much to give,
He would have helped to make the world
A better place to live!

I hope his bully feels the pain
That now lives in my soul,
If murder was his game of choice
Then he has reached his goal!

I hope he knows just what he did
And how he took a life,
I hope he knows his words were cruel
And acted like a knife!

I know he was not present when
My child’s life was done,
But still, he’s guilty just the same
As if he shot the gun!

On earth he’ll get away with this
It’s fact, most bullies do,
But in the end he’ll have to pay
Because He knows what’s true!

I’m bitter now and full of grief
But for this boy I’ll pray,
“Dear God please make his meanness end
So more don’t come your way!”

My Angel Dad!

My dad died when I was nineteen. His death almost destroyed me. However, as the years went by, I realized how blessed I was, and still am, because my dad is my Guardian Angel. He watches over me and protects me. There have been instances in my life that I could feel his presence, of this I am sure. These words came from my heart because of my Angel dad. In my heart, he has spoken these words to me.

ME & DAD

When Heaven Called

When Heaven called to take me home
You cried sweet tears for me,
I was so sick, without a cure
So He helped set me free!

Though life was short, it was quite sweet
And yes, some times were bad,
But better times meant so much more
Because I lived some sad!

I know my death has caused you grief
But please just think of this,
When you arrive at Heaven’s door
I’ll greet you with a kiss!

For now you have to keep the faith
And know within your heart,
That even though you can’t see me
We’re never far apart!

With angel wings my soul flies high
I keep watch over you,
And deep within your loving heart
You know this to be true!

You’re never far away from me
I’m with you when you cry,
And when you go to sleep at night
I wipe your teardrops dry!

On certain days you feel a sense
A warmth just known by few,
It’s something that is Heaven sent
A hug from me to you!

When Heaven called to take me home
Please know the time was right,
At peace, I went to be with Him
My darkness turned to light!

Suicide Is Devastating!

When a person chooses suicide, they feel as if they have no other way out. To them, they are ending the pain they have, whether it be physical or emotional. The people left behind are the ones who now suffer. Please remember, their goal was not to hurt their loved ones, but rather to put an end to the darkness they felt deep within their soul.

In Your Heart

Please understand what I have done
And don’t be mad at me,
Although I love you all so much
On Earth, I could not be!

I could not cope with all the pain
It was too much to bear,
And though I felt my choice was right
For you, it was not fair!

I left you with so many thoughts
And questions as to why,
There are no answers and no blame
It was my choice to die!

Please do not cry or carry guilt
You had no way to know,
That for some time this was my plan
I knew I had to go!

There’s nothing that you could have done
Deep down you know it’s true,
I wanted to leave pain behind
Not thinking I’d leave you!

Right now I really need your help
Please let go of your sad,
And know that God is here with me
He does not think I’m bad!

For sometimes we get lost in life
And darkness blocks our view,
Though now I’m here and see the light
My death I can’t undo!

So wipe your tears and celebrate
Remember me with glee,
And when you miss me, hold your heart
For that is where I’ll be!
