My shield is God Most High, who saves the upright in heart.
I only wanted you
They say memories are golden well maybe that is true I never wanted memories I only wanted you.
A million times I needed you A million times I cried if love alone could have saved you you would have never died.
In life I loved you dearly In death I love you still In my heart you hold a place no one could ever fill.
If tears could build a stairway and heartache make a lane I'd walk the path to heaven and bring you back again.
Our family chain is broken and nothing seems the same But as God calls us one by one the chain will link again.
With every breeze that caresses your hair;
With every sun-ray, that shows I care;
With every memory, that takes you there;
To all the years, that we have shared;
Remember children, I'll be there.
As Angel's watch you each day;
I am among them, in work and play.
With every breath that you breath,
I'm your Angel, you will see.
Every time you are alone;
Every time you want to phone;
Every time you remember me;
I'll be there, you will see.
For now dear ones, for awhile;
Please be strong, and remember to smile.
When Angels sense you need them, And Angels always do They come, unseen, from everywhere To help and comfort you.
They hover close beside you 'Till all your cares are gone, 'Till they can see you're ready Once again to carry on.
Then some of them may fly away And take their gentle touch To other hearts that need the love Of Angels very much.
But one, at least, stays with you As your constant friend and guide, For Guardian Angels never leave, They're always at your side.
The mention of my mother's name
May bring tears to my eyes
But it never fails to bring
Music to my ears.
If you are really my friend,
Let me hear the beautiful music of her name.
It soothes my broken heart
And sings to my soul."
As I look into the Heavens Piercing through a cloud Sometimes I think I see you Laughing There out loud
I know it's just a dream But it helps to get me through Nothing seems the same Since I said goodbye to you
I know that you are happy And watching over me From the pain and the sadness You have been set free
In my heart I have an album Especially of you With pictures and memories And times shared by two.
You've always been my angel Now you have your wings Walking through the heavens Where the choir of Angels sing
As I walk along the road That life brings each day I know that you are with me In each and every way
With all that you have taught me Stored within my heart You're so in my memories We'll never be apart
You've always been my angel Now you have your wings Walking through the heavens Where the choir of Angels sing.
Tender smiles and warm embraces, Soothing words for tear-stained faces. Gentle hands to guide the way, Through the trials of every day. Always there to show and share, The years have passed in loving care. Sun-filled days of work and play, Dream-filled nights all tucked away. And though I walked up childhood's hill Mother's love surrounds me still.
"God Sends His Angels "
When life's trials come near God sends his angels down They'll wipe away each tear and make smiles out of frowns
He will not forsake you Nor will He ever leave His Word will guide you through If on him you believe
Lean on his loving arms Trust in his son alone He'll keep you from all harm Until life's setting sun
God will return your joy and give you cause to shout Your faith you must employ to remove every doubt
God sends his angels down To love and care for you Yes, He will send them down He'll send them just for you.
Thank you, dear God, for today,
It’s been great in every way.
I don’t know what’s tomorrow’s store
But knowing you’re in charge makes my heart soar.
I know you love me and you’ll provide--
From life I don’t ever need to hide.
What’s best for time and eternity
Is the very thing you’ll bring to me.
You saved my soul, you set me free—
You heard and answered this sinner’s plea.
Serving you is always the best way,
Thank you, dear God, for today.

Your birthstone is Ruby
The Mystical properties of Ruby
Ruby is said to open one's heart to love. Some lists consider these stones to be your birthstone. (Birthstone lists come from Jewelers, Tibet, Ayurvedic Indian medicine, and other sources)
The name Mary Bates means: There are 9 letters in your name. Those 9 letters total to 32 There are 3 vowels and 6 consonants in your name.
What your first name means:Hebrew Female Wished-for child; rebellion; bitter. Famous Bearers: the Virgin Mary; Mary Magdalene; Mary, Queen of Scots (1542-87). English Female Bitter.

Your number is: 5
The characteristics of #5 are: Expansiveness, visionary, adventure, the constructive use of freedom.
The expression or destiny for #5: The number 5 Expression endows with the wonderful characteristic of multi-talents and versatility. You can do so many things well. The tone of the number 5 is constructive freedom, and in your drive to attain this freedom, you will likely be the master of adaptability and change. You are good at presenting ideas and knowing how to approach people to get what you want. Naturally, this gives you an edge in any sort of selling game and spells easy success when it comes to working with people in most jobs. Your popularity may lead you toward some form of entertainment or amusement. Whatever you do, you are clever, analytical, and a very quick thinker.
If there is too much of the 5 energy in your makeup, you may express some the negative attitudes of the number. Your restless and impatient attitude may keep you from staying with any project for too long. Sometimes you can be rather erratic and scatter yourself and your energies. You have a hard time keeping regular office hours and maintaining any sort of a routine. You tend to react strongly if you sense that your freedom of speech or action is being impaired or restricted in any way. As clever as you are, you may have a tendency to make the same mistakes over and over again because much of your response is glib reaction rather that thoughtful application. You are in a continuous state of flux brought by constantly changing interests.
Everything my grandma did was something special made with love. She took time to add the extra touch That says, "I love you very much!" She fixed hurts with a kiss and smile And told good stores Grandma-style. It was warm and cozy on her lap For secret-telling or a nap. And When I say my prayers at night, I ask God to bless and hold her tight. 'Cause when it comes to giving hugs, My Grandma's arms were filled with love!
A Salute To Mothers
Mothers come in all sizes and descriptions it's true, But please know we're thankful for each one of you. Some have many children, some have only one, But each mother gave life to a daughter or son.
You may feel neglected and you may be, it's true, But at least for today we want to thank you. You not only gave birth but you guided and led, And you saw that your children were clothed and were fed.
You taught us each night to kneel down and pray, And things that you told us we remember today. You may not always be "with it" or dressed all in style, But my you are lovely when at us you smile.
Some of you mothers are grandmothers too, So your days for teaching children are certainly not through. Grandchildren love grandmothers and need them you see, To love them and teach them and their friend to be.
Thank God you're a mother and enjoy today, And know that we mean all the good things we say. We love you and need you every day of the year, And we're glad to express it when Mother's Day is here.
We tell God we're thankful for each one of you, But so often we're neglectful and forget to tell you. So as children or grandchildren or as husbands too, We say and we mean, "Mother We Need You"

To every thing there is a season, and
a time to every purpose under heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to
plant, and a time to pluck up that which is
A time to kill and a time to heal; a time to break
down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to
mourn, and a time to dance;
A tome to cast away stones, and a time to gather
stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to
refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep,
and a time to cast away'
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep
silence, and a time to speck;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war,
and a time of peace.
Their marriage was good, their dreams focused. Their best friends lived barely a wave away. I can see them now, Dad in trousers, work shirt and a hat; and Mom in a house dress, lawn mower in one hand, and dish-towel in the other. It was the time for fixing things: a curtain rod, the kitchen radio, screen door, the oven door, the hem in a dress. Things we keep.
It was a way of life, and sometimes it made me crazy. All that re-fixing, re-heating leftovers, renewing; I wanted just once to be wasteful.
Waste meant affluence. Throwing things away meant you knew there'd always be more.
But when my mother died, and I was standing in that clear morning light in the warmth of the hospital room, I was struck with the pain of learning that sometimes there isn't any more.
Sometimes, what we care about most gets all used up and goes away...never to return. So... While we have it, it's best we love it... And care for it... And fix it when it's broken... And heal it when it's sick. This is true: For marriage... And old cars... And children with bad report cards... Dogs and cats with bad hips... And aging parents... And grandparents. We keep them because they are worth it, because we are worth it. Some things we keep, like a best friend that moved away or a classmate we grew up with. There are just some things that make life important, like people we know who are special... And so, we keep them close!

Your Soul Urge number is: 7
A Soul Urge number of 7 means: With a number 7 Soul Urge you are very fond of reading, and retreating to periods of being alone and away from the disruptions of the outer world. You like to dream and develop you idealistic understandings, to study and analyze, to gain knowledge and wisdom. You may be too laid back and withdrawn to really succeed in the business world, and you will be much more comfortable in circumstances that are tolerant of your reserve, your analytical approach, and your desire to use your mind rather than your physical being.
You are very timid around people that you don't know very well, so much so at times that casual conversation and social situations can be strained. You tend to repress your emotions to the extend that some people have a good bit of difficult understanding you. You tend to be very selective with friends and you don't easily adapt to new environments or to new people very quickly.
The negative traits of the 7 include becoming too much the introvert and isolated from others.
Your Inner Dream number is: 7
An Inner Dream number of 7 means: You dream of having the opportunity to read, study, and shut yourself off from worldly distractions. You can see yourself as a teacher, mystic, or ecclesiastic, spending your life in the pursuit of knowledge and learning.

God Showed His Love
God showed his love to mankind one day, By sending his son to take our sin away. In his wisdom he knew we were wicked and weak, And did not know it was him we should seek.
The time was right that we should know, That god is kind and he loves us so. In Jesus we see his compassion and grace, And his desire to free us from sin's embrace.
The shepherds saw angel proclaiming the story, That Jesus was born without pomp and glory. He humbly began his life in a stable, So that entering Heaven we would be able.
He lived on this earth and sinless was he, A perfect sacrifice his death would be. Undeservedly and willingly he died in our place, Our minds can't comprehend such love and such grace.
By the power of God he arose from the grave, He went through all that our souls to save. He wants us to trust him and accept him today, So that with him in Heaven through eternity we'll stay.
A Heavenly Home
A world beyond this earthly home There dwells another place A point beyond the moon and stars And somewhere lost in space.
A place where heavenly angels sing With flowing robes of white A place amongst the rainbows And radiant beams of light.
A place where peace and love is found Before the throne of God A place where heavenly streets are paved And saintly prophets trod.
A place where darkness never comes Where everything is new A place that glows with holy light And shines the whole day through.
A place that has no tears to dry There is no hurt or pain A place for us to praise our Lord And never die again.
A place that boasts of mansions high Mine eyes will soon behold A place where Jesus calls to me And waits on streets of gold.
Please stop by again.
