They Can Take Many Things

They can take many
things away
from me,
but they can't
take away
the nature around me.



 
Or the song in
my heart.
 
 
Or my heritage.


Or my precious time.

 
They can't take away
my church.
The doors are
always open to me.
 
 
Or the clouds that
look like
angel wings.

 
Or my dreams
and imagination.

 
They can't take
away from me
my faith and beliefs.

 
And they can't
take away from me my
love.
That is mine. 
 

They can't take
away these
from you either,
friends. :)

Sheri, Love this. You look so pretty. When I was young, I felt that my happiness came from others...it took me a long time to realize it came from within my own heart. So even when things seem so bad...we can look for just a bit of happiness to bring forward from our hearts. Blessings, xoxo, Susie
p.s. Hormones have a lot to do with moods when we are young.

I believe you. Oh do I believe. The things that can be taken away don't matter. The devil (yes, I said it) or evil in general, cannot take away what God has or IS: LOVE. Thank you Jesus, thank you for being our beginning, our end, our eternity.

And thank you, Sheri, for believing. Love you!

How beautiful, Sheri. Nothing is more important than appreciating what you have. I hope 'they' don't try to take even the things that can be taken :-)

Good Afternoon Pretty Lady,
I just love this sweet and pretty picture of you and oh your good heart and tender soul.
You are one in a million and knowing you is a delight.
Your are so right Sheri, the things you mentioned are not of this material world, they are of the spirit and gifts from God.
You are a dear!
Love,
