Great shipwrecks

Great Shipwrecks Poster

How do you say what is on your heart
when what is on your heart is so hard to say?
How do you know what you know when no one else cares to know it?
but in silence.
"Abandon ship!"
 as cowards tip the life boats.
When life a vacuum pulls away for the very souls it is after.
When all you see is what you do not wish to happen.
Voices hollow scream out for mercy a drop of water a tent to sleep.
Voices of many failing at heart because of debt becoming the ruler their master.
Make light of life?
Seeing it a struggle compounded by denial.
Blog light of life or tend to distractions.
Passing out life vests.

I step aside silent.
Thoughts of light heart days
Offers of a smile seem distant now.
Sounds of the dark and gloomy  deeps folks are drowning
Appear a depressed soul?
Not really, just standing astonished at all happening in the world around me.
Visions of weeping families torn apart for want of a dollar.
Consequences of a nation greed gone wild.
Wild thing best left wild.
Mad men and women going for each others throat.

Suffering families simply for want.
Rent, food and clothing...
Seeing this all around sets to humble for the good things surround me
Full pantry and closets needs all that are met.
Suffering though taunts me with those empty souls hungry for the hole to be filled
Nothing can fill it.
Set your love upon God, not for expectation of his bounty but for love of a friend.
Wonder how a captain might feel at His ship going down.

Yes I may sound morose. 
Is any one out there even remotely sad?
Repentance a nation flushed by a government no longer "the people".
This is the inheritance of future generations.
Children in the White house playing fancy games with all resource.

Marriages, families children become foes.
Simply acceptance of this is what is expected
Who stands up to such basic deceptions.
In each given life is decision.

So pardon me then my deep silence for I think of all that I have to say...
Who wants to hear it?
Sufice it to say, unless a golly good moment get bigger than this it becomes hard to speak freely.

So many wonderful moments with my children, in my home with my mate.
Yet my heart is so saddened by lives that are shipwrecked and pretense leading so many astray.

You feel everything so deeply. Try not to let your empathy for others to shadow your joy.

Such powerful words sis, love you.

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"
