I'm Having A Give-Away!!

One of my passions is music, so I thought I would give away an i-tunes gift card to one of my fellow bloggers. Just leave me a comment and I will enter your name in the random drawing. I will draw the name on Monday, Jan. 23, so leave me a comment before that date. In your comment, tell me one of your passions in life.

Have a blessed week everybody!

What Are You Reading?

This is what I am reading right now. It's by Laura Hillenbrand. She is the author of "Seabiscuit" - which is another good read. I'm about half way through. It's the story of Louie Zampirini. He was an olympic track and field hopeful but then was sent off to fight in WWII. I haven't finished it yet, but it's pretty good so far.

In your opinion, what's a good read?

A Borrowed Prayer

Dear God,
Please untie the knots that are in my mind, my heart, and my life.
Remove the have nots, cannots, and do nots.
Erase the will nots, may nots, and might nots that may find a home in my heart.
Release me from the could nots, would nots, and should nots that obstruct my life...and most of all, Dear God, I ask that you remove from my mind, my heart, and my life all of the “am nots.” that I have allowed to hold me back.

A Letter to Father Time

Why are you moving so fast? 2012? Are you kidding me? It seems like just yesterday I was rocking babies and kissing boo boo's. And now my "babies" are 26, 24 and 17? And I'm a grandmother?? When did that happen??
Please slow down!! There are a few things I still have left to do:
There's a song in my heart I have yet to sing.
There's an especially kind word I have yet to utter.
There's a warm embrace I have yet to deliver.
There's a laugh in my belly that has yet to escape.
There's a dream in my life that has yet to become a reality.
A woman who doesn't want to take you for granted!
