Who are you
husband or friend?
Does it matter
in the end?
Are you spouse
or soul mate?
Either way’s fine
I won’t debate
Who do I
tell secrets to?
Well my dear
it’s only you
Who holds me
when I cry?
Who knows when
I don’t try?
Who’s the one
that sees me
for what I am
and can be?
Who loves me
just the way
that I am
on any day?
I can make
no good excuse
for my past
there’s no use
But the present’s
yours and mine
may our lives
be forever entwined
I love you Mark
’til death does part
what no man could
right from the start!

This is a little long guys but well worth the time and effort. My post:
is gaining speed and has been read almost 700 times. These veterans that this story is about are the ones who fought and saw their buddies die for our freedom and rights as a nation. If you love America, read this post please.
White House will not do Christmas!
Thought you might be interested in this information from the White House..
This isn’t a rumor; this is a fact.
A very talented artist for several years has painted ornaments to be hung
on the various White House Christmas trees. The WH sends out an
invitation to send an ornament and informs the artists of the theme for the year.
She got her letter from the WH recently. It said that they would not be
called Christmas trees this year. They will be called Holiday trees.. And, to
please not send any ornaments painted with a religious theme. She was
very upset at this development and sent back a reply telling them that she
painted the ornaments for Christmas trees and would not be sending any
for display that left Christ out of Christmas.
Just thought you should know what the new residents in the WH plan for
the future of America . If you missed his statement that “we do not consider
ourselves a Christian Nation” this should confirm that he plans to take
us away from our religious foundation as quickly as possible.
Just another step toward turning America away from Christianity!
We should shout to the highest hills that the White House is ours – not
the Obama‘s, and 85% of Americans believe in Christ (Christmas)..
You have two choices, delete or pass it on.*
As I sit here swinging away
all my thoughts turn to gray
How my heart you did betray
when you threw my love away
I have no word to say
and my hopes are in decay
This life has begun to fray
all to my broken heart’s dismay
How can I to you convey
what you’ve done to me today?
So I sit here swinging away
in attempt the pain to delay
As the damage I do assay
and dream of a better day!

“I have great beauty
people see it too
and everywhere I go
I know they do!”
All I can say
is vanity, oh vanity
how I do think
you are complete insanity
For all that beauty
is only skin deep
you’ll never have it
very long to keep
It always will fade
over time and years
in the culmination of
a vain person’s fears
What is great beauty
with a heart of stone
when it is yourself
that you love alone?
I would rather have
the love of everyone
than a faded beauty
when my life is done!

When I saw my angel, I felt a warm rush run through me and I reached out my hand to her. She grasped hold of it and instantly I was out of that hell and enveloped within her light.
She was the most beautiful thing that I had ever seen. When I say her light, it’s not like any light that you would see here on earth. It shimmered and sparkled like millions of tiny diamonds but at the same time was also pearl like in color, truly it was indescribable but that’s the closest that I can get.
My heart, mind, body and soul seemed to be transfused with it and contained therein was the greatest of love, joy, and peace that I will never again see the likes of until I go back and along with that an understanding of what life is all about.
“This is what you will be giving up if you fall into your old ways again,” she said to me. “When I return you to your mortal body, you won’t be able to take the wisdom of life back with you but your soul will remember it for a while. I will still be with you to help you and guide you too, if you will listen!”
“I will, I will, I promise. Thank you so much for coming to get me!”
“Don’t thank me, I didn’t do it on my own. I was told that I would be allowed to do it this one time after the Son pleaded your case to the Father. You need to thank Him and never forget what He has done for you!”
“I won’t!” I said and the instant that I did, I was back in my body and the hospital.
I heard someone saying, “He’s back again! Good job doc’, you saved another one. What’s that make it today, three?”
“Yeah, something like that I don’t keep count. Somebody up there must be on this kid’s side ’cause I was about to give it up and mark the time but let’s get him into intensive care for now and pray he doesn’t crash on us again! I don’t think I could get him back if he did.”
I felt myself being moved onto a gurney and rolled out of the emergency room. All at once my father and step-mother were there at my side. My throat hurt from the aspiration tube that had been down it but I manage to croak out, “I’m so sorry for everything, will you both please forgive me?!”
My parents looked at each other with tears streaming down their face and turned their gaze towards me, “I think we’re all gonna do a lot better when you get home, son,” my father sobbed.
“John, I’m sorry for how mean I’ve been to you lately. Will you forgive me too, please?” My step-mother’s face said it all, she meant every word of it.
“Yes,” I said as loudly as I could and then silently added, ” thank You, Jesus, for everything too! I’ll never forget what I’ve learned nor the second chance that You gave me!! By the way, can You do something to help Bahalize too? Does she really deserve to be down in hell forever? I hope You will ’cause she helped me a lot while I was there.” Then I fell asleep peacefully for the first time ever and I just knew that life would be a whole lot better from now on.

All His glory and beauty come from within, and there He delights to dwell. His visits there are frequent, His conversation sweet, His comforts refreshing: His peace passing all understanding.
Then, knowing what lies ahead for you, you won’t become bored with being a Christian, nor become spiritually dull and indifferent, but you will be anxious to follow the example of those who receive all that God has promised them because of their strong faith and patience.
The Living Bible
“And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.”
