With This Ring

Way before the ring was bought
and before the question was asked
God brought forth a man and woman
And then began a task

The roads were paved to lead the way
So a marriage could take place
God knew every detail
He could see her smiling face

He put her path before the man
And said that they shall wed
He knew what He was doing
Before the vows were even read

The ring may symbolize their love
When placed upon her hand
But God must be the center
To carry out His plan

And what God has put together
Let no man tear apart
For seeds were planted long ago
In this man and woman’s heart

A lifetime of new memories
Are starting on this day
New dreams of Chris and Brandi
As they follow in God’s way

For with this ring placed on her hand
A promise has been made
A road to life planned out by God
A foundation has been laid

And with the vow and “I do’s” said
And a kiss to seal the day
The two are united now as one
As they follow in His way

And as the days turn into years
May they know their in God’s plan
For He was there long before
The ring was placed upon her hand

Written by Diania for her niece, Brandi, and her husband, Chris, who were wed on April 15th, 2012

When A Mother Prays

When a mother starts praying
You better step aside
Heaven’s gates will open and
Angels will sing inside

There’s no greater power
Than a mother on her knees
God sees her tears
He will answer her pleas

A child in need of prayer
Is God’s biggest concern
And offering up a prayer
Should be the first lesson we learn

It’s not His desire
To turn us away
He says seek me early
You’ll find me when you pray

A troubled child
Who has gone astray
Will find His way back
And thank you someday

A sick child waiting
For a miracle healing
Will covet your prayers through
The path they’ve been living

What other power
Do you hold in your hands
Anything short of prayer
Simply won’t stand

So fall on your knees
For the sake of your child
Your greatest reward
Will be their smile

You’re holding a gift
Clasped tight in your hand
God gave it to you
Now follow His plan

Memory Bouquet

It’s the little memories
That make a bouquet
The refreshing fragrance
You think of each day

The one’s that remind you
Of how you’ve been blessed
Can simply helps you forget
All the rest

A smile that comes
From out of nowhere
Is simply a gift
That God chose to share

A picture of yesterday
A thought of the past
Is now a memory
That will forever last

Thoughts of tomorrow
will soon be long gone
a memory will be all
that’s carries on

So hold onto all
life has to give
just a take a deep
breath and go out and live

Take each memory
you make everyday
share with someone
and make a memory bouquet

My Child

While working one day, I stopped to pray
Cause things were bringing me down
As I bowed my head, thought of things I dread
I felt my knees hit the ground

As time went by, I started to cry
The Holy Spirit filled the air
He said, “My child, let go”
I felt the tears flow
And my sins I started to share

As He held my hand, He said I understand
My child, you’ve been forgiven
The weight you carry is why I tarry
And now you can go on living

There’s a reason I’m here, to dry your tear
There’s joy to restore in your heart
You’re part of my plan
I hope you understand
You have been from the start

All you go through is planned out for you
It’s a season for you to grow
I won’t walk away or let you stray
But there are things you need to know

My Word is your light, so you need to fight
Stay strong in all that you do
Never give up, just lift your cup
And know I’ll see you through

If you need to see where I might be
My child, just open your eyes
I’ve told you before that I love you more
That should come as no surprise

After all my child
What more do you need
Then a Father who gives His best
If you come to me first and seek my face
I’m sure I can handle the rest

Nothing you do can turn me away
I’m the maker of the air you breathe
Till you take your last breath
And I carry you home
I have no reason to leave

So hold on my Child, till I call you home
And remember I’m always near
There’s no reason to worry
If your prayers reach home
I assure you I’m always here

All that you’ve done I keep in my heart
You’re a treasure in Heaven above
So open your life and allow me back in
And I’ll fill your heart with love
