The Rose is a reflection
Of our Personal growth.
The thorns represent the
Challenges essential for
Our life's journey!
As we overcome each
Obstacle, we will,
Shine Your Light!
I am here to mend your broken heart~~
fix your eyes on me
The One who heals all hearts~~
I judge not, nor must you!
Step by step, you run the race…your eyes fixed on your goal
With aching muscles and labored breath
Your freedom is there for you!
Your crown will not be of gold or fame, but a new life
Filled with love, laughter and peace Obtainable only through forgiveness
Of all those who have wounded you, but more importantly,
Forgiveness of yourself!
There’s nothing I need from you
There is nothing that you can ever do,
That I cannot forgive
For your soul can never be tarnished~~love heals all!
I Am love and I Am in you,
Let my love guide you in all that you do
I need you to run the race before you
Strong and brave to face the future~~
regardless of your past
In spite of all your broken dreams,
You have the right to be here
Focus your eyes always forward
For you are my Light, let it shine for others to see
Press on, I AM with you—
you cannot fail me
I have lifted you out of the depths of despair
With a new desire to follow your path
Your faith in me will see you through
I AM Jesus, the One who ran before you!

We Are So Blessed!
If we wake up each morning with more health than illness
We are more blessed than the millions
Who won’t survive the week!
If we never experienced the danger of battle,
The loneliness of imprisonment,
The agony of torture or the pangs of starvation
We are ahead of twenty million people around the world
If we can attend church without fear of harassment,
Arrest, torture or death—we are more blessed
Than over three million people in the world
If we have food in the refrigerator,
Clothes on our back, a roof over our head
We are richer than 75% of the world’s population.
If we have money in the bank or in our wallet or
Change in a dish—we are amongst the
Top 8% of the wealthiest people in the world
If we can hold our head high
And have a smile on our face, we’re blessed
Because the majority can, but most do not!
If we can hold someone’s hand, or touch them—
We are blessed because we are offering
God’s healing touch!
