Words to our unborn child

When you feel a hand rest upon your Mom,
And you hear the sound of a low deep hum,
I hope you know, and to yourself think gladly,
This touch and voice is of my Daddy.

It's still early days but you've got my heart,
And I know that this is just the start,
Because from now on and forever more,
I will love you, cherish you and always adore.

Every day my love for you grows,
And I hope to you this already shows,
I will do everything I can to make you see,
That you will always mean the world to me.

And from today until the day you're born,
I swear to keep the oath I've sworn,
You and Mom will always be cared for,
Protection is the oath I swore.

Not just to protect, but to always love,
Because you were a gift from above,
I never thought I would feel this way,
But now I can't wait until November.

For when the day that you arrive,
I would have never before felt so alive,
You'll bring a tear straight to my eye,
And you'll look at me and you'll know why.

Because you will be the greatest gift,
And my heart and soul you will uplift,
That feeling there will be hard to beat,
From that moment on my life's complete.

But for now you sleep inside your Mommy,
Keep warm and snug inside her tummy,
And I'll look forward to the day you're here,
To take my heart when you appear.

So when you feel that hand on Mom,
And hear the sound of my low deep hum,
I know you'll know and for that I'm glad,
That here with Mom is your very proud Dad.

Humpty Dumpty

Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
all the kings horses
and all the kings men,
couldn't put Humpty together again...

 Men and brothers this one is for you. ~

You remember Humpty, the little well dressed egg, dressed in his Sunday best, as a man put up the image to be macho and tough, but the reality is, YOU TOO are fragile and can be easily broken. I don't know WHO dropped you, or even who was carrying or was with you.... but the damage is done! It could have been your baby mama, a bad drug rap, drunk driving, a divorce, a business deal that failed or could be just PURPOSE and this is the path you HAD to take, but, the damage is reversible. The fact that you had a GREAT fall, means you were on your WAY. Now get away from the horses and the men who cannot help you, and run to THE KING! He is the only one who can pick you up and put you back together again.

2 Samuel 4:4
And Jonathan, Saul's son, had a son that was lame of his feet. He was five years old when the tidings came of Saul and Jonathan out of Jezreel, and his nurse took him up, and fled: and it came to pass, as she made haste to flee, that he fell, and became lame. And his name was Mephibosheth

Think About God

THOUGHT: If you could see in a vision the person God meant you to be, never again would you be quiet. You would rise up and succeed. CHALLENGE: Don’t let anyone (especially yourself) tell you that you can’t accomplish great things. First, look to God to know the person He wants you to be, and then rely on Him for the strength to pursue His will. With God, all things are possible. REFERENCE: Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." Matthew 19:26

The unfaithful son

"And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son. But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet....For this my son...was lost, and is found."
 (Luke 15:21-22, 24)
 Prove yourself. In today's world, that's what you constantly feel you have to do, right? On the job, among friends, even at home you're always working to win the approval you need. Working to convince those around you that you deserve the salary, the friendship, and even the love they give you. Is there any escape?
You better believe there is! It's called grace. Unearned and undeserved favor and acceptance. And there's only one place you can find it--in the heart of God Himself.
There's no better picture of God's grace in action than in the story of the prodigal son. Few of us today can really feel the impact of that story like those first Jewish listeners Jesus told it to. You see, by their standards the prodigal son had committed some of the most despicable acts possible. He'd not only taken advantage of his father and spent his inheritance in riotous living, he'd left the nation of Israel and made covenant with a foreigner--a pig farmer! That was as low as you could get.
In their eyes, that boy's rebellion was so serious his father's only recourse was to disown him.
But that's not what this father did! He welcomed his repentant son home with open arms. He offered him grace--unmerited favor--that was based on the father's love rather than the son's performance.
Next time you catch yourself struggling to make up to God for something you've done wrong, working to win His approval, let the story of the prodigal son set you free. Let it remind you that, in spite of your sins, your Father has received you with open arms. He's put a robe of righteousness on your back and His signet ring on your hand. He's put the shoes of sonship on your feet!
Do you feel unworthy of all that? God hasn't based His relationship with you on your worthiness. He's based it on His love for you. You don't have to struggle to prove yourself to Him. As far as He's concerned, you're a proven success.
