A Husbands Wedding Vows

My husband's cousin is extremely talented and she write poetry. She is praying for the opportunity to be able to publish her book of poetry.

A Husbands Wedding Vows

I look in the skies every night,
watching the stars in Heaven shine bright.
Each star represents the love of my life.
The depths of love, I have for my wife.
This love I have is an infinite amount,
love with no boundaries, unable to count.
To love and to cherish, to honor and obey.
In my heart you will live, my love will never fade.
God saw my life, my empty vessel, my heart withdrew.
Therefore he kissed my ribs, and with my heart, he sent me right to you.
You are what I pray for, yes you have blessed my life,
God knew exactly what he was doing when he made you my wife.
As we continue to pray together,
so that in Christ we can stay together.
We will Thank God for our union.
And know I will love you until the day I die,
because until you my life had never began.
My love is forever yours,
so for you scream Thank you Lord!

The Meaning of Peace

There was once a king who offered a prize to the artist who could paint the best picture of peace. Many artists tried. The king looked at all the pictures, but there were only two that he really liked, and he had to choose between them.

One picture was of a calm lake. The lake was a perfect mirror for the peaceful towering mountains all around it. Overhead was a blue sky with fluffy white clouds. All who saw this picture thought that it was a perfect picture of peace.

The second picture had mountains, too. But these were rugged and bare. Above was an angry sky from which rain fell, and in which lightening played. Down the side of the mountain tumbled a foaming waterfall. This did not look peaceful at all.

But when the king looked, he saw behind the waterfall a tiny bush growing in a crack in the rock. In the bush a mother bird had built her nest.... a perfect picture of peace.

Which of the pictures won the prize?

The king chose the second picture.

Do you know why?

"Because," explained the king, "peace does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. Peace means to be in the midst of all those things and still be calm in your heart. That is the real meaning of peace."

That is the REAL meaning of peace.

Where the Wild Things Are

Growing up one of my favorite books was Where the Wild Things Are. My sister is a fanatic when it comes to this book – she can’t get enough. So when we found out that they were coming out with a movie we were too excited! Unfortunately due to our busy schedules and all of our children we haven’t had the opportunity to watch the movie yet. So we are patiently waiting for the DVD to come out.

In the meantime I thought I’d shop Etsy and see what I could find that was related to this movie. It’s amazing the amount of talented people that are out there. I had to narrow my choices down to just a few…. and believe me it was hard!!

All of the can be found at just put in the shop name.
