you are not the lies that tattle and rattle inside a beauty will rise when you tell those lies to slip away and die in the Light of your Maker oh the song of your life is greater than those failures want you to believe because we’re all a crazy remix and mash up of brilliant stars and tattered rags of bumps and dents that’s who we are so don’t do anything just stand in the Light of your Maker oh the song of your life is greater than shame and blame want you to believe breathe just be and breathe and see the Light inside you breathe just be and breathe and see the Light inside you you are more than all you do just breathe your identity is more than all you do you are here a masterpiece just breathe and be at peace and receive His love His light receive
so i think that we should sing about the sad sad shadows why do i keep remembering their darkened glance it seems that they want to dance into the story and at any moment the sad sad shadows fall on me so about those sad sad shadows inside those weathered picture frames a broken promise here something undone there framed fractures and failures each one calls my name and the struggle starts again with one word oh the shadow of shame falls on me so listen sad sad shadows i remembered today that you don’t have to stay you’re not the whole story Light and Glory can rewrite your songs mend all the wrongs and scatter the darkness not just for a moment but for eternity all these parts of me will be restored once more oh sad sad shadow the final say will not be yours the Light will end the night and all the sad sad shadows will go away and there will be only Light
One of our rest days took us on a road trip to a children’s home located on the Bay of Santiago Atitlan. Our journey took us over twisty mountain roads that had spectacular views. Unfortunately, there were few places to stop and pull over to enjoy the views, or take some pics. As we got closer to our destination we passed through a small town that afforded us a wonderful view of the lake. The four lake view images in this post were taken from that spot.
Once we arrived at the home some of our team stayed and played with the kids, while others took a steep hike to get to the top of a ridge behind the home. The two images without water were taken as we ascended the ridge. The beauty of this country is truly stunning. Stay tuned for the next post where we will see what I saw at the top of the ridge. Thanks for stopping by.
Back to our hike at Pacaya for this post. Pacaya erupted in early 2021. The black, cooled lava fields were spectacular to see, as were the hiking paths through the those fields. In the center of the large image in this gallery you can see a small eruption from Fuego, an active volcano in Guatemala. Thanks for stopping by.
another day to cry so many whys we can weep together another day to dance its okay take a chance we can hold each other another day to dream close your eyes and see the light come to chase away all the darkness in our hearts can we just start again on this new day its okay don’t say a word we can just be another day to take a breath and rest we can see each other we can hear each other and be together another day
so can we talk about clouds today it seems they took the sun away and i’m in my overcast life there’s something different about this light so can we talk about clouds today my head tells me that it’s okay the Light is here and not far away but it just doesn’t feel that way cause in those cloudy skies i think i see some dreams that cry and dense dark memories why did i say those things or why didn’t i say anything at all i wish those clouds would fall in rain and storms of healing let it rain let it rain so can we talk about clouds today i suppose if they never came i might lose the love of Light and forget that those clouds do give me sight i see you and me and the story that only can be told if there are clouds so dreary is not the end you’ll see i choose to sing to sing out loud so hello clouds

the last goodbye is coming soon at least sooner than i every knew trusting that the Light behind me will be above me beneath me before me all around me still walking on this road with you still leaving shadows behind don’t want to be swallowed up by all the wrong the things i said the things i’ve done in Your love those shadows flee they are gone in the Light of Your love this life is long and yet we know the yesterdays are longer still a line called life stretches behind me so i'm making a new yesterday today looking before me along the way faith and hope and love will stay so let me walk along this road to the Light in the Light this burden is light with You behind me above me beneath me before me inside me all around me
March is usually malcontent in the Midwest, which means a moody, sometimes malicious maze of temperatures and a minefield of uncertainty. So! I mounted my trusty motorcycle and meandered through a magnificent field of wind catchers marvelously moving their blades on this most beautiful of spring days. That is all.
it’s not going to be okay at least not in the way we want it to be okay won’t do today longing for so much more it’s not going to be okay at least not in the way we want it to be the sorrow stays my heart is sure there is a place where tears will end okay then when will that day be it’s not going to be okay at least not in the way we want it to be there’s a promise for you and for me surrender will be all on our knees finally light will be all we see light will be all we see
