Role Models

I have found that

role models that I’ve never met in real life

aren’t role models at all,

only people who I think are good at what they do

but no one I should model myself after

because they are good at what they do

and I should be good at what I do

not at what they do.

I have found that

role models that I see everyday

are the best role models

because they are not only role models

but they are people who care about me

and I care about them.

I can see their daily struggles

and not just the ones the camera catches.

I can talk to them and they can talk to me

So I want to thank you

all my role models,

but especially the ones

who know me and love me personally

because you have had a personal hand in making me, me

so thank you for being you, the real you

The Range of God’s Power

Thanks, God, for the little things

You hold up the heavens

and prevent endless dangers

that we don’t even know to thank you for

You are still in the miracle business

and heal cancer

You are still in the life changing business

and let little actions change lives

a random thought

a random meeting

a random cloud

all of these have changed my life

except they aren’t random

they are perfectly, lovingly placed

by You.

I wonder at Your creative power

in the sunset sky

I wonder at Your abounding love

washing dusty feet

I wonder at your wisdom

in Your Word

but I also wonder

at how you keep the stars aligned

and still listen to my small prayers

You answer my cries for peace

as well as my asking for wisdom on my english quiz

You answer my prayer for healing

as well as my prayer about not being late

The range of Your love

astounds me

I Thanked God for You Today

I thanked God for you today

I thanked Him for your smile

I thanked Him for your silliness

I thanked Him for your patience

I thanked Him for your understanding

I thanked Him for your spunk

I thanked Him for your optimism

I thanked Him for your funniness

I thanked Him for your excitement about life

I thanked Him for you being a Christian

I thanked Him for your support

I thanked Him for your wittiness

I thanked Him for you

I would want to say that I thank Him for you everyday

but gratitude is such a fickle emotion

And so now, in one of those surpluses of appreciation

I want to tell you that I care about you

and that I am so glad that you are in my life

You truly are sunshine to my rainy days

and stars in my night.

I thanked God for you today, my dearest and best friend.

A Little Drop of Joy

A little drop of joy is pink whipped cream

the shade ever so lost in today’s daily rainbow

A little drop of joy is an unexpected smile

the emotions dancing Quickstep across the mouth and eyes

A little drop of joy is taking a second to remember the people who I love

the small remembrance is like fresh spring air to the soul

A little drop of joy is a pleasant conversation

the lively words living on in the mind for days

A little drop of joy is a compliment

the notice of who I am and what I do

A little drop of joy is a new culture

the uniqueness of life rolls around the global and my mind

A little drop of joy is a perfectly timed song

the string of something more than sound, knows what my ears need

A little drop of joy is moments in blissful prayer

the Almighty Lord’s words flowing freely

A little drop of joy is a dog wagging it’s tail

the pure excitement of simply seeing me

A little drop of joy is a boy treating a girl nicely

the “old fashion” rules have not faded as so many believe

A little drop of joy is writing

the expression unique each time

A little drop of joy is blankets

the warm familiar fuzziness is comforting

A little drop of joy is recognizing all there is to be thankful for
