Hiya!

Did you know I write poems?  If you read my blog back when it was on blogspot, then you can just skip all this and read the new poem.  But since some of you haven’t, I… wait a second… oh… ok… I’ll save some time and just copy my post from there… cool.  Um… wow… ok thats a long post… I’ll just post some of it.

Taken from Lioness-lamb.blogspot.com.

I don’t know if mama has told you, But I like poetry, I write it to, And everyone has asked me to post them. So I’m a gona’ post ’em! But first! How I became interested in poetry. As I recall it was one afternoon in 2005 we were watching "reading rainbow" and it was about…Um…What WAS it about? Anyway I tried and tried to think of a poem. Then one day I was sitting at the "desk" in our bedroom looking out the window at the sunflowers we had planted (that’s probably the only thing we planted from seed or otherwise that matter that did not die. But then we found out that we had planted them in the wrong place). And, somehow and I don’t know how, but I wrote down on the paper on the paper. And then I was on a ROLL, and by the end of the day I had written 3 poems. Now I will publish them for the first time!!!!!!

PIXIE DUST 8/9/05

Pixie dust and faries wings,
these are little girls dreams.
Swords clang and dragons flare,
little boys dreams are everywhere.

yah not so good but I got others.
And now the one that started it ALL.

THE (or my) WINDOW 8/9/05

the window is a place, where I can sit and think,
where I watch the birds sing,
where I can listen to the wind blow through the window

A SONG (who knows when I wrote this one)

life is a song ment to be sung,
by all the little ones.
but some are quite and some are loud,
but all of them sing.

 OK, The End (If you skiped all that, start reading again).  My old ones are really short.  Now my new poem.  I wrote it yesterday, that makes it new.  I went a long time without writing one, but thats how I do it. One realy good one, long time, ‘nother really good one.  And they get better as I get older (Who’d a "Thunk"!).

Some say it’s "where the heart is".

Others say it’s "sweet".

Where love begins,

Where family is,

where company you greet.

A place, to come back to.

A haven, in the storm.

A plae, where people love you.

In winter, to be warm.

Some say it’s "where the heart is".

Others say it’s "sweet".

Where love begins,

Where family is,

Where company you greet.

ST Patrick and a tag

In Uncategorized on March 18, 2008 at 12:57 pm

Hidee,

Do you know the true story of St. Patrick?  Well… ok, I don’t either.  But I do know how to search on google.  I found it!  So… here is the true story of St Patrick (as told by HERE)

St. Patrick, who lived from 385 AD until 461 AD, was one of the first successful people to spread Christianity into Ireland. He was also the first to attempt to teach the gospel to the Celts without bloodshed occurring. Although the exact date of St. Patrick’s birth is unknown, he was likely born under the name Patricius around the year 385 in Roman Britain. During his teenage years, he was captured and brought as a slave into Ireland where he was forced to work as a shepherd for six years. He then escaped and returned to the land he was born in.

When captured, Patrick did not have a strong faith in the Lord. As he later noted in his Confessions, “I was taken into captivity to Ireland with many thousands of people—and deservedly so, because we turned away from God, and did not keep His commandments, and did not obey our priests, who used to remind us of our salvation. And the Lord brought over us the wrath of his anger and scattered us among many nations, even unto the utmost part of the earth, where now my littleness is placed among strangers.” Patrick, the grandson of a priest, realized then that by his enslavement, God might be trying to send a message to him and his people. Prayer played a large part in Patrick’s life of enslavement in Ireland. He prayed several times daily at first, but was soon so moved by the power of God that he prayed almost constantly. Through his strength of faith in God, the Lord helped him to escape his life in Ireland. Following his escape, God gave Patrick a strong desire to spread his faith throughout the country of Ireland. Although part of Patrick longed to live in his native country and see his family, his faith helped him to overcome those feelings and go forth to spread the word of God.

Between the time of his escape and return to Ireland, Patrick studied at the monastery in Gaul under St. Germain, the bishop of Auxerre. He studied here for approximately 12 years. It is here that God touched his heart for the ministry of Ireland. However, for the conversion of the Celtic Pagans, the church chose St. Palladius instead. Two years after being appointed to Ireland, St. Palladius was moved to Scotland. Patrick then became second bishop to Ireland.

It is unkown when his return to Ireland occurred. Considering he had been enslaved in the country for six years, St. Patrick had a much better understanding of the Celtic people than those who had previously attempted to bring Christianity to Ireland. This understanding allowed Patrick to teach the Celts in ways that were familiar to them, making Christianity seem easier to understand and something they would be interested in pursuing more knowledge of. Patrick mixed his Christian beliefs with a few of the pagan beliefs in order to make what is now called “Celtic Christianity.” He was careful to point on the similarities between the Celts pagan religion and his Christian beliefs, but to always acknowledge the Christian beliefs as the correct ones when he reached the point where the two religions separated in their beliefs. For thirty years, Patrick successfully converted an astonishing number of pagans to Christianity. Aside from ministering to them, Patrick also helped to set up monasteries, schools, and churches for the people of Ireland. All of his success upset the Celtic Druids and, several times, they arrested him. Each time, though, God showed his miraculous power and Patrick was able to escape.

Following an exhausting evangelical mission, Patrick realized that he was growing to weak to continue his ministry. He spent his last few days praying in Armagh. It is likely he died on March 17th, the day he is currently celebrated, 461. Several lessons can be learned from St. Patrick: the power of prayer and remembering to give all the glory back to God. During his capture, St. Patrick, who was then a pagan, realized the power of God. He then prayed night and day and gathered strength and wisdom from the Lord. After his escape, Patrick did not cease praying and God guided him throughout his life to do mission work. Although Patrick did astonishing deeds during his life, he was always quick to say that they were not his works, but God’s. St. Patrick was truly one of the most successful missionaries of his time and still serves as an example to modern missionaries.

In Uncategorized on March 12, 2008 at 3:54 pm

I think I’ll start a thing. Like Wordless Wednesday, but kind’a, the opposite… no, not the opposite, just different.  Anyway… post three quotes, by one person, and a picture that has to do with all three.  Ok, here go’s.

>>Milk Run>>

In Pictures on March 10, 2008 at 12:01 pm

Ahoy,

Yesterday we went to a local farm and got milk.  Thus, the title.  Milk

 Run.  It comes straight from the cow.

Raw.  Raw milk.  Yummy:q.  We don’t skim it :q. Yum… <sigh>. 

Anyway, back to the subject.  Bunny, the sweet, cutie that she is,

YELLS THE WHOLE TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  And the only way to make

her stop, is to listen to her Happy Music.  You know what I’m

talking about.  Those little kids who all sing so high that you think

they MUST have edited it that way, and is on a 10 year old

tape…  Ugh.   Well, I got an idea.  We sing.  Not in the

van, into "the can".  I thought "We have the makings of a mini

recording studio in our basement. I just have to… and… Hey,

this might work.".  And that’s true.  We have a mic. and all that

stuff.  We’ve done somthing like it before, but it sounds

AWFUL.  We didn’t know what we where doing!  Daddy

just made up some songs.  Great songs, but we kids were

all yelling and stuff.  Now we are better singers, we sing

at once, and we don’t make them up as we go.  We do that

part in Maywin (St. Pat’s name before he was St. Pat.

It’s our Green 15 Pass van.).  This could work.  We

could call it Roadtrip with the *****.

I took this picture.  I did a good job editing out the

rear veiw miror, didn’t I?

I did it again!

This time I took out the antenna.  Not as good.

The first picture Bunny ever took.

Oh, lunch time.
