Friendship’s sweet embrace.

The touch of those we love

Knowing someone cares.


Friendship’s sweet embrace

The melody of friendship’s song.

A beautiful melody.


Friendship’s sweet embrace.

He Will Nestle You In His Arms

For Karen Vidra and Karla Dorman



He will nestle you in his arms

Lord knows that you are strong.

He gives you that strength

Cause the battle is hard and long

But he will get you through

He will carry you on

When the battle makes you so weak

You can’t stand on your own.

He will nestle you in his arms

Cause Lord knows that you are strong.

He gives you the strength you need

Although the battle leaves you weak.

I see the strength in you

As you fight

Keep fighting

Be strong

I believe you will

Find the Victory in this battle.

With the Gentleness of a Friend

* For my bestest friend and the Sister of My Heart

You reached out

With the gentleness of a friend

When I was hurting you reached out to me

Forgetting your own battle

So hard, so strong.

I spent several weeks with you

The summer of 2002

You opened your home

Because we had been planning this trip

For so long

We were determined to finally

Meet face to face

You were already

The Sister of my Heart

And My Bestest Friend

We wrote letters

Twelve pages long

That first year

I was blessed with the sister

I had been praying a lifetime for

And when I was there with you

That bond grew.

Even then your health was

Rocky to see the least

And we never knew when

You would go into the hospital

And still I hear from you

And you tell me that you

Have had more visits in and out of the hospital

Several this year alone

And I pray for you

Long and hard

Wondering how much more you can go through

But you have never been one

To go poor me, poor me

That’s just not you

You live your life

For your husband and Son

And offer words of kindness

When I am down.

You tell me not to worry

That you are getting through

But you know that’s hard for me

And I often find myself crying out to the Lord

For your healing

I believe in the power of prayer

And so I pray everyday

Believing fully that one day

You will be touched

By our Lord and Savior

Our Healer.

Precious Person

For Sister Ruth

Photograph taken Sunday. March.18.07 . Living Waters Assembly of God In Jamestown…

It so touches me

When the Precious person

You are

Takes the time

To be with you.

It so touches me

When even in your own pain

You were able to reach out

To the Lord above.

I thank the Lord


For the precious person you

Rest In Him

For Karla Dorman

Psalms 62:5: “My soul, wait in silence for God only, for my hope is from Him. He only is my rock and my salvation, my stronghold, I shall not be shaken. On God my salvation and my glory rest. The rock of my strength, my refuge is in God. I trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before Him; God is refuge for us.”

Rest in Him

When you’re feeling blue

He wants to give

That arm of comfort

To you.

Rest in Him

When you feel alone

His love for you

Is real and trie.

Rest in Him

And find comfort

In his presence.

You Help Define Friendship

For Karen, Karla and Sarah

You help define


And all it’s beauty

That selfless gift

Of unconditional love

You have given me.

You help define friendship

And all it’s beauty.

You help define


In all it’s glory

And I thank God daily

For the gifts

You’ve given me.

Friendships Built

Friendships built

On a foundation of faith

Shared joys and sorrows

Moments built

Together yet


Friendships built

A gap between

Space and time

Linked together.

For Sarah D, Sarah T, Karen and Karla, those friendships old and new, what a blessing it is getting to know each and everyone of you…

I Want to Be That Comforting Arm

I want to be that

Comforting arm

The one you can turn


Knowing that I am here

Reaching out

Trying to help you.

I want to be that

Tender friend

The one you know

Is always there

Even when miles seperate


I want to be that

Forever friend

The one you can turn to

When you are feeling down.

This is truly the desire of my heart…

It’s Okay To Laugh, To Cry, To Lean

It’s okay to laugh

To cry

To lean

To dream

To fall

To pick yourself up again.

It’s okay to seek

To find

To be that friend

For all times.

It’s okay

To have those moments

When you need to lean

When you need a shoulder

I am that shoulder

Feel free to lean on me.

Sarah Davis and Sarah Tagert are in need of prayers, the Lord knows there need so I don’t need to repeat it, just please pray for both of them…

God Bless

The Kind of Friend

I want to be the kind of friend

Who you know you can lean


The kind of friend

Who loves unconditionally.

I want to be the kind of friend

Whose not afraid to tell you

As it is

And know that you understand

That I love you just the same.

I want to be the kind of friend

Who gives unconditionally.
