Then Came the Morning

... The one that changed history forever.

Then Came the Morning

'Twas the night before the Cross as the sky turned to gloom;

broken bread and covenant wine filled the Upper Room.

"One of you will betray me," said the King of the Jews;

then to the garden where the inner circle began to snooze.

On his knees He prayed that the cup might not spill,

as the prophecies alas began to fulfill.

Then came the night, then came the morning.

Hung by a tree was Judas in the brume,

as the crowd relentlessly chanted with faulty presume.

Mocked and scourged and heavy-laden with bruise,

then Simon carried the weighty cross to no amuse.

Innocently annihilated and facing torture on Calvary's Hill,

He died for our sins and the earth was anything but still.

Then came the night, then came the mourning.

As Pilate ordered that the soldiers guard the tomb,

the Sabbath came and there was temporary doom.

Then came the night, then came the morning.

Soon it was Sunday and the angel paid his dues;

the soldiers trembled as was spoken the good news!

The faithful women intently listened with thrill

as the empty tomb played its role in the Father's will.

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

Overall I'd love to say I grew up a happy overly enthusiastic child that was taught to love herself and be loved by everyone else, but I can't say that and I never will. My smile wasn't always as bright as it is today, but this is the story behind my smile, the story about how I got here to the happiest place I'll ever be. I'll begin at freshman year of high school.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,
