Pink baby, Pearls and Lace, & Heartfelt, a POEM

I saw this somewhere on my surfing and it is so pretty, it didn't have a copyright but I give credit to the artist, it fills my heart with PINKNESS and welcoming love formy new grandniece born this week in Germany!

Lillian Grace Marie, a beautiful daughter entered the world at 8lbs.02 oz. at 8:30AM Germany time!Blessings to her and her family!Rosy Pink cheeks!


My heart is filled with love and  yet also saddness...
The days drag out it seems as the one I love, hurts -
Soon the days his father ceases to breathe draws near,
How do I console him, the love he holds, I now of...

Questions I ask of Thee, why do we suffer so?
How can we move on without letting go, we cannot...
Is it our fate to never know the reasons why?
Must we always endure such heavy burdens?

The sorrows of the heart rule our minds,
And what in turn rules yours? Is it a game played?
Does it pleasure you to see suffering, what is it?
Why do you hold back the power to heal?

I love Thee Lord, but am troubled as I speak
The words of my feathered pen to YOU!
I do not know how myself to let go, less comfort him,
Will you Lord, will mend his broken heart this year?

I can only ask for Your guidance, your love,
I give you in return my faith, wavering but here...
Do as you will with me Lord, but spare the man I love,
For he too suffers in silence and yearns for another life.

Poems My Way Valrie 01/9/2011

In honor of  my Bob and his father Robert...a leagcy of life and love!

I am on the hunt for lace and pearls for an upcoming mother of the groom dress and ensemble. This is delicate but the colors of the wedding party are blue and yellow. Oh how I wish I had a wedding to plan in the PINK colors.

 Now my daughter and her significant other have yet to set a date and even announce a formal engagement... but her favorite color is HOT PINK, this fuschia lace is perfect for that one...
I am also in the final stages of my poetry book galley before publishing and need to have an outfit made in period dress for the picture on the front cover; at $89 a yard this would be an  extravagance, BUT.... I might just have to splurge for once on just little old me. The pearls on the top won my heart! What do you think? It comes at half the price without the pearls at about $49 per yard. I would compliment it with soft blues and lacy white cuffs. Any period dress designers out there?

 Now wouldn't this little pale pink and blace lace make a lovely wedding peignore? (sp?) no time to check!

    it is a struggle, yes. but you've directed it so rightly to the One who hears, listens & cares! may i suggest Is 46.3? 'I have borne you from birth, carried you since the womb. Till your old age I will be the same- I will carry you until your hair is white, I have made you, and I will bear you: yes, I will carry and save you."
    God bless & be your ever present help thruout this time...
