My dad raised his children as he only knew how... A man that worked to support his family, raise his children and love his wife. Raised us to do what is right, and when we did wrong, take ownership, learn from it and move forward.
I have made many mistakes, bad choices in my life, and I have repented for all of it. Now that I have been made clean through ONLY the Grace of God. I choose to live my every day according to God's word. I may still stumble, but I know that I will never look back on my life and ask "Why". Everything in my life has made me who I am today and I can only praise God for holding me and carrying me through every dark step and the bright days that I have seen in my life.
I now live for my family, my children, my grandsons and to those that God calls me to reach out to. I am a survivor... I will make my dad and mom proud until the day I take my last breath.
This is the place and this is the time To Clear the heart and open the mind.
When you're weary with the world And the storms in which you're whilred You can reach out, feel the love, the joy Feel the breeze and smell the grass Hear the birds sing as they pass Thru the branches of the trees, the joy
The world gives us love we can share Replacing the woe and the care with joy.
