a past due letter to my son/ you asked me to wait!
  • i was going to go Africa for permanent missionary assignment in 2006. my son was 16, living with his father in another state. i felt useless, unloved.
    when i asked him what he wanted from me, he said i was to wait. just be there when he needed me. i battled in my sadness but in the end i made the correct choice.

    Did I Take The Time?
  • did i take the time to tell what my heart was thinking?
  • or was i writing some rhyme to show off?
  • was i hurt because you didn'tt take time to read me,
  • or because some popular word jockey blew me off?
  • you are closer to your father and it causes me some pain.
  • that you fake sickness and roll your eyes everytime you see me name
  • on the the caller ID. i want to stop calling
  • minutes ain't always free.
  • but my eyes they won't sop bawling.
  • what is wrong with me/
  • why would i want to love another child better than my own?
  • when was the last time you dialed to see if i was home?
  • but i've said all this before.
    there's a new note on the door
    it used to say 'go turn your own knob'.
    now it's "Out of Patience" with the mommy job!
    it says ' In different ' on the other side.
    i have no shame i have no pride.
    i wasted it all when it was all you needed.
    now i've come and suceeded
    at making a waiting staion with a warm fire.
    ready to fill your hearts desire.
  • about the racing bike, your dad says i got played.
    it didn't matter if only you had stayed,
    and had a cup of coffee before you rode away.
    i got lost in the blizzard coming home that day.
    Randy stole the camera, i didn't get the pictures either.
    strike a point for the great deceiver!
    but if you were to call with that sound of wounded pain
    the fact you called would make me do it all again

i've learned something about loving you, i won't soon forget.
you take the good and the bad , whatever i can get.
i ain't no fool, so unconditionally
to forgive and be forgiven, that is my plea.
so when the day comes and my life is faded.
i did all i could,
i came and i waited.

    snowed in and loving it. just me, my husband and alex the dog. eating, singing and watching movies to our hearts content. many prayers came in between and all our prayers have been answered. the power has not gone out. Praise Him!!! New Years Eve we had a royal feast including black eyed peas. New Years day we started with fasting and prayer. now fasting is over and i have made a stew that commands even the dogs attention. Robert is finishing the pumpkin pie, i am pied out from Christmas's sweet potato binge. now for the next big day on the calendar, january 10th. my son will be 21. lookout Omaha. Blessings to all of you until next time. faith!

    i just saw a commentary on the 'invisible children' of Africa.
    how everyone started their attention in Dafur only to find a 20 year war of genocide and abduction in Uganda.
    i was horrified.
    the children slept in piles, body on body to keep from being abducted and made to fight.
