SHOT - his song

I've lost track of time
I forget it's been years
I never wanna feel that pain
How do I take another chance
I try to fool myself
Into this empty place

If I roll the dice
Will I get the same results
It's too much to risk
Can I get a guarantee
Don't abandon me
Don't ever leave

Give me somebody that can show me love
Show me somebody that will give me love
Cuz my heart can't take another shot

Everyone leaves, it's just a matter of time...

So give me somebody that can show me love
Show me somebody that will give me love
Cuz I only have, one shot left,
One shot left 

The fear I cling onto
Is what drives me away
Why should I give you the part of me
I turned to stone
Can you soften this place inside
Fill me with your soul

Allow love to come in
I still wanna believe
Soak it up
Fill the missing piece
It has to be here
I can feel it's close

Give me somebody that can show me love
Show me somebody that will give me love
Cuz my heart can't take another shot

Everyone leaves, it's just a matter of time...

So give me somebody that can show me love
Show me somebody that will give me love
Cuz I only have, one shot left,
One shot left

I can't keep running
Life is passing... passing me by
I wanna be the father, I never had 
I wanna know, I'm worth staying
Allow it to flow
Loyal is your eyes

One more shot, 
Do I pull the trigger
Is it real... real... real...
I'm starting to feel again
Hunger for you
Risking it all for you
I need you, I need your


Michele Zarillo ~ Una Rosa Blu

The chorus you play and sing, over and over... in my dreams.

The rest is taken from your notes (scattered on scratch paper), that I found throughout your place and pieced them together.

I'm sure you would do a much better job. ;)

Be Still

Sometimes you need to drown out the NOISE of the world,
in order to hear the SOUND of Heaven.

Autumn is my favorite time of year.  There is so much art in the scenery, outside.  You can smell the freshness of the season, in the air.  It's cozy time! ;)

I love to cook, bake, and entertain, this time of year, more than any other season.

But lately, I have felt cluttered in my mind.  Am I too busy?  Over committing myself?  Talking too much, or just involved in more than I should?

I don't want to miss out on this season and have it pass by, without enjoying it.  I need to spend some quality time with friends and family, but most of all... some QUIET time with God.

I started thinking...

What if, all of us turned off our TV's, cell phones, and computers, and we were just quiet, for awhile?

What if we took some time, to get outside and listen to the ocean, the birds, the wind, the rain, and the snow fall?

Are we missing out on the BEAUTY of this season, that was given to us and what it may GIVE back to us?

Thank you Pastor Jay!

There's a place I like to go, on Tuesday's (for one hour), to pray and just listen.  I can't believe how much I have heard, how much I have seen, and how much I have felt, during this short period of time.

I am so thankful for THIS Sanctuary!  It IS so refreshing and my soul feels REVIVED.

I wonder what ideas, dreams, and music, may spark inside all of us, if we took just one hour, to Be Still.

And know, that He IS...


Tim McGraw ~ Still

"There's a place I need to go
Where the stain glass windows glow
Every part of me is known
Thank God I can go there
Thank God I can go there, still"

Symphony of DOVES

I've always been enamored by the Beauty of Doves.  I guess it started when I was a little girl and I went to Venice, Italy, for the first time.  The beauty in the city alone is breathtaking, but to see all of the Doves and feathers at San Marco Square, was fascinating to me.  There IS something so graceful about Doves, not to mention what they symbolize... The Holy Spirit, Prophecy, Peace, and Love!

After I had studied the different types of Doves, I found out that Doves BOND together for life.  Doves stay together until one of them dies, unlike other birds.  It's no wonder, that they are attracted to the most Romantic city in Europe. Truly beautiful and amazing.

To me... Doves are the Graceful Ballet Dancers, in the Bird Kingdom.  ;)

My Dove LOVE Story:

It was early one Spring morning, when I was startled by the oddest sound coming from outside my bedroom window.  I thought it was a cat or a baby crying?!  As I awoke, I knew that it couldn't be a baby, because my bedroom is on the third floor.  I looked outside my window but I didn't see anything.

After my morning coffee, I took King Mufasa (my dog), out for a walk.  My neighbor stopped me and he said, "Hey, did you hear the two doves this morning... Looks like they built a nest right outside of your window... Love is in the air." he joked.  WOW!!!  Doves outside of my window???  I couldn't believe it.

Every morning, I would hear my Morning Doves make this 'cooing' sound and I eventually became accustomed to hearing it.  They became my rooster in the morning. hehe  If you've never heard the sound, I will post a link at the end of this blog.

One evening before I went to sleep, I started thinking about my Morning Doves.  I then began asking God questions, as I always do.

"What are the doves saying to each other?... They must speak a language, that keeps them together forever... I want to know what it is... I want to be able to communicate like the Doves!"

That night as I slept, I had a dream... There were two white doves sitting on a log in the middle of the ocean.  I know it sounds like a joke, right?  haha

It was a dream straight out of Disney, with the two doves talking to one another.  I call these type of dreams my "Heavenly Disney Dreams." ;)

Anyway, this is what the Doves said to each other...

MALE:  I am Honor, You are Dignity
FEMALE:  You are Favor, I am Grace

I awoke and wrote these four words down, on the notepad on top of my nightstand.  WOW!  Think about how POWERFUL these four words are.

I thanked God, for sharing the 'Language of Dove' with me and I looked up the definition for each word and wrote them down.

Now every time I hear my Morning Doves, I think about these four words.  I also think about how I may be able to implicate them in my daily life, whenever I am speaking of or to someone.

I believe, if all of us treated each other with a little more HONOR, DIGNITY, FAVOR, and GRACE, we too will be able to communicate better and have relationships like the Doves!  ;)

Goodnight and may all of you have "Heavenly Disney Dreams," tonight!

Lenny Kravitz ~ Calling all Angels

"Calling all angels
I need you near to the ground
I have been kneeling
and praying to hear a sound
all of my life
I've been waiting for someone to love"

This I Love
