Oh Lord this day why am I here?
In words full of contentment
I plead to you this day
gave me hope on this lonely way
to have faith to believe
what my eyes cannot see
What a surprise, my eyes behold
you are so full
of beauty and grace
Arise you, dry your wet eyes
He stretches his hand
deep into your soul
Come ye my servant
and sweetly repose
by Phoebe C.
As I studied my Fern plant
I’ve concluded that
A great life is not always benefited
By the survival of the fittest
What an interesting plant
That teaches us life lessons
Of how to live & grow
Inspite of our differences and intellectual flow
The Fern is made up of many different varieties
Yet they perfectly cohabit together, all in one place
In fact, all they need besides personal care
Is organically rich soil in order to conserve its beauty
And to produce its fair share
Like all living creatures, special care is necessary
Depending upon that unique variety
And its will to grow
But the need to dominate
Is just tearing us apart
Creating an environment
Unfit to soon be called earth
Getting back to the source
Is perhaps what we all need
We have gone way too far
Trying to feed that desire called greed
Why do you pretend?
To be something you’re not?
Insisting on losing
The uniqueness of your thoughts
It’s costing you, your will to please
Can’t you see?
There’re making a fool
Of all your good deeds
I understand your game
And I feel your pain
But it’s time
You create your own time frame
I was told there’s a God
From the time I was born
He’s the everlasting savior
Who was born to save the world?
Without a doubt I believe
I’m convinced it’s true
That he died for you
He’s preparing a place
For all those who choose
Some say, get real it makes no sense
As far as we know it’s all a bunch of mess
How could you believe?
Can’t you see this world is full of hate?
And lack such faith
I’d say, what have you to lose
Though this world is so confused?
Have faith & wait
And believe he will shine through your face
Put your trust in him
All things unique will come out of thee
15 years of living in FRANCE has definitely altered my perception of life.
Moving back to the U.S. has been a bit difficult for our family, but we have grown to appreciate our new life. Living in the States has definitely become the better option for us.
As always, there are positive and negative aspects to all cultures, but for the most part, both countries are awesome.
France’s art of dining and its beautiful architectural landscapes are overpowering.
For this reason, a yearly visit to France has become a way of life for us.
We’re just enjoying the best of both cultures.
What’s not to enjoy! Great foods, wines, cheeses and visits to the South of France, so much to be appreciated… I am thankful.
Thes are just a few of our favorite monuments in Paris
Good food… Good time…
