The will to hang on when all else fails
The stubborn refusal to give up and wail
That dogged determination to live and go on
Is found in the hearts of both weak and strong

That uncompromising drive to survive
When impossible is the only other thing to thrive
Yet still all is possible for those who believe
No sky is the limit when vision conceives

Amazing journeys and testimonies sing
When heart and mind and will take wing
The trumpet of God in death's shadow declares
Hope is ever present ever living to share

The peace you gave to save us from wrath
Has given the freedom to choose any path
T'was more than a gift you gave us this day
T'was life in abundance and love, our mainstay

Merry Christmas Everyone

Curious Kitten

 "Curious Kitten"
 Photos By: Adrielle R. Bollin

Mark 10:14b - 16 Let the little children come to me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God.  Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it.  And He took them up in His arms, laid His hands on them, and blessed them.

What can I say folks, my silver-tongue is quiet as a stone these days... All is well, I just can't seem to find a poem in me these days.  Forgive my absence... Here are some photos to hold your attention just a bit longer.  :)

"Cherished Notes"

"Cherished Notes"
By:  Adrielle R. Bollin
The way He loves with all He has
Is so inclusive and unabashed
Like a sudden rainfall or bright moon beam
He overwhelms and shines on me
That perfect love that has no bounds
No greater love will ever be found
He'll show it through a stranger's eyes
You'll see it too in prairie skies
The sacrifice that I recall 
Was just for me, was for us all
He gives me place, gives hope and life
He clothes with peace, removing strife
Like wind which blows but is not seen
Or air so crisp, so clear and clean
Like a sea of green Kentucky trees
Or the wash of blue Caribbean seas
I see His love and feel his grace
As I take it all in, in every place
Though I long for the day He'll come again
I'll cherish each note in nature's pen

Stepping out in the water, braving a new day
I'm having trouble moving, fear of failure in my way
I'm already on adventure but I've come to this crossroad
 I could take my leap of faith or take the road I know
Will I brave the great divide, have the experience of my life
Or will I take the way that's easy and and forever wonder why
Will I trust you where you lead me or go on my own way
Thinking I must know me better, like by your hands I was not made

Oh forgive my hesitation, I know not what I wait for
And please will you be patient, do not leave me at this door
Couldn't you just push me, It's like my feet are frozen
"Just go!" I say to myself, "You know it's the way you've chosen!"
Think of all that's waiting, all that's to be discovered!
Lend your hand to help another and live your life uncovered!
Drink in the open spaces and watch the mercy flow
Merge into your own calling, come on now, GO!

Arise, shine, for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. Isaiah 60:1

On The Edge Of Splendor

"On The Edge Of Splendor"
By:  Adrielle R. Bollin

I've traveled deserts, been lost at sea
To catch your secrets that were lost to me
I've searched among the highest trees
And ridden on the steady breeze
The words you've whispered in morning lights
Fed my soul as I caught each flight
I've sought you out in the valleys below
Saw your footprints in sands of gold
Always there yet I missed you somehow
The whirlwinds distracting, I crinkled my brow
Turned my head and lost you again
Yet e'er I will seek you my truest of friend
I'm right on the edge to see your splendor
A few more steps your direction to render
Continual presence to which I can surrender
To be in your arms, your favor forever

My Maker and I

My Maker and I
By: Adrielle R. Bollin
As I lift up my head to look gaze at the clouds
The beautiful scenery away from the crowds
A quiet place for just you and I
A time to reflect and soak up the sky
I bow my head in prayerful consideration
And see the flowers that are future generations
The trees beside me in unison sway
Offer shade and strength on the lowest days
Everywhere I look I see glimpses of you
Your promises etched in each sunset hue
Your warmth and your love in every scene
Your beauty and grace on the waters serene
You whisper through pines and weep with the rain
Your steady hand guides me round each winding lane
No matter my doubt nor trouble nor storm
I know I can always find you in the creations you form

Precious Pups

Ok, I think that these photos I took of our dogs deserve a post all their own, I am so proud of them!  These two handsome gents are our dogs.  The Chocolate Lab is Cody and the Chihuahua (mixed with a 1/4 Terrier) is named Tank.  :)

Pushing Through

"Pushing Through"
By:  Adrielle R. Bollin
Like clouds of a different nature ever changing their form
So too are my labors as I attempt to perform
Like chaos in a storm when the wind and rain swirl
So too are my thoughts as I  struggle to unfurl
Such longing to win but too weary to try
I must break this cycle of mediocrity's cry
I mustn't give up but push through this time
I can't fail again, like vapor left far behind
I must push to the end with a well done assured
Cannot keep wondering if I did my best and endured
Like the setting of the sun, I must become a vision
Cut through the sky with a brilliant incision 
So tired of scraping, it's time for the feast
Whatever I have left I'll aim to the rising east
Live out of this world like an eagle soaring high
Get to know the winds that move me and choose where to fly

Step Into the Light

"Step Into The Light"
By:  Adrielle R. Bollin

As light enters in and opens up the heavens
Bringing it's beauty our hearts it does beckon
Exposing the world one foot at a time
Sweetly it whispers and gently it shines
Yet in it's own time it shines with full force
Revealing the truth and obstacle course
Making things known which were hidden before
Allowing veracity and dispelling folklore 
It is then we can walk with steps well assured
When darkness is banned, dispelled and deterred
To see the light is more than a coined phrase
It's a dawning of the mind that can change your ways
Step into the light where the shadows can't play
Rest in the warm glow of the son's loving gaze
Feel the heat of all of heaven's stare
As you walk the fields and breath in earthy air

The Colors In Me

The Colors In Me
By:  Adrielle R. Bollin

Blue like the ocean
Like water rushing over me
Renewing my breath
Like the sky vast and free

Red like a rose
Like a roaring fire
Like a sunrise at dawn 
Like a fervent prayer

Yellow like the sun
Like energy stored
Bright and shining warmth
Like a joyful reward

Purple like lightening
Like strength next to beauty
A mystery to uncover
Like a sovereign duty
Green like a forest
Like an emerald gleam
A ticket to envy
Like prosperity's steam
Grey like a kitten
Like a soft winter mist
A sweet happy medium
Like an opening fist

 "Made To Rise"
By: Adrielle R. Bollin

Made to rise with a kingdom in mind
To find my way and my destiny to find
To sleep and wake with assured purpose
And find the treasure neath the heart's surface
 That seed which was planted so long ago
Burns like an ember ever warming my soul
Wanting to know more but not quite ablaze
Fear of my failure loosens my gaze
But rumbling deep a foreshadowing glow
Volcanic like pressure is building up slow
For soon it'll be time to burst into day
To live for much more than just for today

Hello friends and family :)  
I just had to say that these were such an immense pleasure to photograph!  This last one literally caused me to gasp out loud when I saw it waiting for me as I stepped out my front door!  The second one is also from this same day. Thank God for my wonderful husband who loves to spoil me with both my Nikon D3000 as well as my fancy cell phone so I can take these kinds of pics!!  I am so blessed and feel so privileged to be able to have the time to pause and capture these moments and am even happier to be able to share them with you!  May you have a glorious weekend and upcoming week!  Thanks again for all your support and comments, whether here or in person, they are so greatly appreciated  :)
