That is so sweet RIck. Thank you guys. Hey, I need all the hugs I can get.
You bet'ch'ya bring'em on. Ahh, there we go, that's better now. Thank you. I still
get a little mixed up/ ok alot mixed up on everyones time. Right now it is 1:25 p.m.
So I have some time before I go get the young'ins, from school.
I want to take a minute, to holler, "Hooray!!!!" It's the last day of school. I finally get
to sleep in some. My son goes to his dad's for 6 weeks, sure am gonna miss that
little booger. But, at least i won't be hearing, the screamming and fighting between
them for a little while. In our house, you will hear, "You jerk!!", "Mom make him get
out of my room!!" "I outta just punch you!!" "Sissy, I had the remote first!!!" "MOM!!!!"
"I just wanted to ride my bike!!" "I said, No! You have homework." "Turn that t.v.
off right now mister" Don't we sound so like the perfect little family. Ha! No, You
guys we do have good sweet moments. We get along best when it's Christmas, Birthdays, Valentine's, Easter, Thanksgiving. Wait, that's when I buy things, them
little rascels. We usually on the holidays sit around and make crafts, for decorating
the house. When the money is available, I buy some things at Walmart. It's funner for me, when everything is on sale. naturally. Anyway here is my next poem, hope you
like it, or them, depending on how many I get posted for now. love you guys,Rick, Barbara. Jeannie

P.S. I forgot to say that everything went fine at the dentist. My daughter didn't get to be seen. Because I forgot to go and bring a certain release paper on her. So I had to reschedule. Their dentist is 50 miles away from here. But, it's a better quality dentist. My son, they did some fillings on him. I stopped at Burger King and got them 2 small Jr. Whoppers w/ cheese. And 1 med. Water, for us to share.

Here is my next poem:

(Maybe this title will work)

"You could've took me, And It's Not fair!"

(Sugg. on title?)



Lo, I am lonely

And feel no one cares,

I am afraid

Is there anyone out there?



My heart bleeds

My tears fall like rain,

Can someone please, please

Ease the pain.



I feel as though all

I can do is cry,

Dear Lord, why couldn't it

Have been me that had died?



Wait, Lord,

I'm not ready to die,

I'm sorry Lord, I take it back

It was a lie.



Oh, Lord, Please I don't want to die

What must I do?

"My child, ask for forgiveness & believe in me

And I will save you."



Oh,Lord, it's that simple?

That's all I must do?

"Yes, my child,

& I will save you."



Dear Lord, I'm sorry, please

Forgive me, for all I have done.

I know in my heart & believe

You are the Heavenly Father's Son.



Lord Jesus, I feel so wonderful

I can feel your presence near,

I have a peace & joy within me

That I will always hold dear.



Thank you Lord, for forgiving me

Before it was to late

For, Lord, if I wouldn't have asked for forgiveness,

I wouldn't have got to see anything beyond those pearly gates.



I wouldn't have

Gotten to see

The beautiful Kingdom

You've prepared for me.



I wouldn't have

Gotten to see

You, Jesus or

My friends and family.



Thank you Jesus

For coming into my heart

I should have made you #1

Right from the start.

"The Gift"

We take each moment for granted
God, could snatch it right away,
But we don't even realize it
As we rush through our day.

We have a beautiful world
If we could take time to listen & see
He gives us birds that chirp and music
And you see sunshine it's free.

He gives us the wind
And yet how mysteriously it blows,
For we know not which way it came
Or, which way it will go.

He gives us the rainbows
To remind us to have faith in Him,
So our faith will be strong
And not grow dim.

How beautiful the world
Can be,....
If we only turn to
Him and see.

He has so much to offer you
If only you would believe,
He offers you a gift
And it is for an eternity.

And this gift.....
It is completely free,
No strings attached
No papers to sign you see.

Won't you quit waiting
And accept Him today,
Please,...Please,...
Don't turn our Lord, away.

I over looked this one, so now they are out of order.

"Someday you will have to make a choice."
He loves you
Won't you invite Him in,
Do you really want
To live in this world of sin?

Do you want to go to Hell?
And burn in a lake of fire?
And live with the devil
Who is, and always has been a liar?

Or, do you want to go to Heaven
Where you can meet Jesus there.
Where there is love and happiness
And beauty to be shared?

Won't you talk to Jesus
Before it is to late
For when we get to Heaven
He will meet you at the gate.

"I'm Tired & I Don't Care!"



I am so tired,

I could really careless,

If the dishes are washed &

That the house is a mess.



It needs to be done,

As I debate in my head.

Do I do it all today?

Or tomorrow, instead?



Gee, I wished I could, close my eyes,

Open them, and it all be done.

That would be fabulous !!

Then I could go have some fun !!



It sometimes seems my chores,

Almost get me down.

I start having a pity-party.

Before I know it- I'm wearing a frown.



I decided to wait,

And get some rest.

For I know in the morning,

I will feel at my best.



I'll open the curtains,

And let the sunshine through,

Turn on some gospel music,

So that I don't get blue.



Before I know it, my chores

Will all be done.

And I can sit on my porch,

With a glass of iced tea, relax,...& soak up some sun.

"The Way I Used To Be."



Right now if my daughter

We're fast asleep,

One glass of sweet wine

I would love to seek.



But, I know how I am

I would not stop at 1 or 2,

I know I would possibly

Not be able to stop with just a few.



I know I don't need it

For I've not drank anything in 3 months,

Lord, Jesus, Please help me,

So, I'm not in the dumps.



I crave it so,

Help me get through this night,

I'm glad I don't have any here,

And none in sight.



I know this battle

Will be a hard fight,

But, with you Jesus

I can refuse it with all my might.



Sometimes I can drink, just 1 glass,

Go to sleep, & be fine.

Sometimes I get careless at home,

And drink to much wine.



I have battled with this, since I was 25,

On weither or not, it is a sin.

If you over drink, and you are not yourself,

I'm sorry, with alcohol, you can not win.



Weither or not it's a sin,

Is between you and God.

If our teenagers do it,

Well, we must not spare the rod.



When I crave my wine-

I get out my glass,

Make me an non-alcoholic Icee,

So my craving moments will pass.



My dear friends I ask you,

Please, please, tonight, pray for me,

As I get through this hard moment,

For, it, to pass, you see.



I almost became an alcoholic,

Just last year,

Jesus has been my protector, my guide,

My shelter of love & wiped away my tears.



My hands shake as I write this,

Because what I speak bravely, is true,

It's not because of withdraws,

But, because, ...I secretly, now tell you.



My Jesus, gets me through my weak moments,

He is my comforter & my true friend,

He is all the world to me,

And He will be 'till the end.

Jeannie 5-22-09 age:37..........



I bravely, boldly, and...

Scared, admit this today,

As I know Jesus,....

Will help me all the way.



I added 12 more lines to this,

So that you would know,....

What we reap,

Is what we sow.



I want to be a better christian,

As I want the whole world to see,

What I have, in life, come through,

Jesus, living... in... me.
