You are more

There's a girl in the corner
with tear stains on her eyes
from the places she's wandered
and the shame she can't hide

She says, "How did I get there?
I'm not who I once was
and I'm crippled by the fear
that I've fallen too far to love"

But don't you know who you are,
what's been done for you?
Yeah, don't you know who you are?

You are more than the choices that you've made,
You are more than the sum of your past mistakes,
You are more than the problems you create,
You've been remade

Well she tries to believe it
that she's been given new life
but she can't shake the feeling
that it's not true tonight

She knows all the answers
and she's rehearsed all the lines
and so she'll try do to better
but then she's too weak to try

But don't you know who you are?

You are more than the choices that you've made,
You are more than the sum of your past mistakes,
You are more than the problems you create,
You've been remade

Jesus please tell my Mother...

Jesus there are so many unspoken words in my heart… if I put them all together, they would form a story. A beautiful story of a mother, my mother whom I deeply-deeply loved.

But I never spoke those words Jesus. I never did.
I kept them all for one day, a special occasion…that never came.

I would have loved one more day with her…to say the words that burns in my heart, the love I had for her from the start. I would buy her lilies, tulips and roses and tell her how I see her perfect reflection in them.
I would tell her I wish I could carry all her many burdens
I would tell her I never meant to cause her any heartaches or pain
I would tell her I wished she never knew illness, sorrows or shame  
that she taught me well, that I am so proud to call her ‘mother’
...that she was the best thing that ever happened to me!
I would tell her I love her with my whole heart, over and over again.
I would love her in a way she deserved to be loved…

I never did any of the above.  I just loved her ordinary. Spoke t…

Beloved mother of mine

You passed away so suddenly
Without any warning or sign What am I to do Without your motherly love? You were always just there Patiently waiting for a phone call or me stopping to say hi Oh why have I taken u 4 granted!
I have known you all my life Have loved you for as long as I can remember And hoped you would live forever O how I wish with my whole heart You didn’t die!
We have been through so many heartaches You were my refuge during my younger years You soothed my scary heart through raging storms And answered the many questions I always seemed 2 have
You held my hand when I gave birth To bravely go through the unknown You taught me how to dance, love and care how to be fare
Together we have grieved over loved ones’ graves Encouraging each other 2 b brave You stood beside me through every wrong decision I have ever made And not once said “but I have told you so”
You have taught me right from wrong You showed me how to burb a baby, change a nappy and be strong You told me how to behave like a lady, be a mo…
