A poem with no name.

I wrote this poem the other night and I have no title for it, so I need some suggestions. Any help at all would be great!

When I was really little,
About the age of three or four,
I would get really scared,
When I'd hear a slamming door.

Mom and Dad would yell a lot,
Us kids never understood,
We knew that there were problems,
And we'd have fixed them if we could.

They never got along you see,
It's God's love that they did lack,
So when they did split up,
Dad said I won't be back.

My mom worked with a Christian,
Who asked her to come to church,
My mom said I'll try it,
Since nothing else has worked.

When my mom went that day,
And she fully realized,
That she was a rotten sinner,
She let that old man die.

Now that she was saved,
She began to really pray,
That God would bring her husband home,
For good and there to stay.

One day when my Daddy called,
About a few weeks later,
He said that he was on his way,
To file a divorcement paper.

Mom then went into her room,
To pray to God in Heaven,
About what Daddy said,
And about the situation.

The next thing that we knew,
Dad was walking through the door,
He said that he was home,
They needed to talk some more.

He said I don't love you,
I'm just here for the kids,
We'll put a month on trial,
We'll try this out again.

She'd pray to God every day,
That He would let this work,
Please God save my husband,
And let him get in church.

After weeks of asking,
Daddy finally agreed,
He said that he would go,
So his wife would no more plead.

Daddy had gone in the garage,
To get alone and think,
He'd knew he'd been convicted,
His soul was tired and weak.

So there that day my dad got saved,
His life forever changed,
Then he told his wife,
My life is rearranged.

It's been twelve years since all this happend,
All of us kids are saved,
My parents are still married,
And dad preaches the Word today.

So next time you say it's impossible,
I've got a different story,
God put our family back together,
I give Him the praise and glory.

This poem is the story of how my mom and dad got saved and how God restored their marriage. I am so glad for what God did!!! Isn't He just awesome!!

Changes again...

Okay, okay...I know. I changed it again, but there is a good reason for it!! It hurt my eyes to look at that pink background. My lens in my glasses fell out the other day and ever since I have been having problems adjusting to things, and the pink was not helping. So that is the reason for a color change again.

Things have been so, so busy for the past two weeks. I am ready for it to slow down again, but with my and Michelle's graduation coming up that is probably not going to happen until that is over with. I am so excited about graduation, yesterday we went and got the invitations and two autograph posters for people to sign at the get together that we are having. We aren't having a ceremony, we are having a "Graduation Celebration" and that is when we will be handed our deploma's. Our next big thing to do for the graduation is our graduation pictures. We have yet to get that scheduled. Wow.....we have a lot left to do, get the the invitations done and sent out (we are making them ourselves)....and, umm....I think that is it. These things take a lot more work than I thought they would take!!! :)

Well....I guess I'd better get off of here and get to practicing my piano, I have a lot to do before my next lesson!! Like learn how to use that dumb pedal!! That thing is a pain, did you know that??? Hehe! Oh well....Toodles!

We're Home!!

We arrived home Saturday at about 9:30 pm. It was a very long and tiresome trip! I am so glad to be home. Everything went really well with the funeral, all the family did really, really well. I want to say thanks to all that prayed for us while we traveled!
One thing I got really excited about while we were traveling in Ohio was that on the side of the interstate there are all kinds of farms and such. I got to see a few Amish farms as we passed them. I enjoyed getting to see those. Other than that it was a really boring trip to take! :)
We had a good time getting to meet all kinds of family and spending time with them. I would have gotten a huge family picture taken, but we have such a big family that it was really hard to get people together to do it. So I will post some later that I did take of family. Once again, thanks for the prayers!!!
