Open Your Mouth And Roar

Lion of Judah

Open your mouth, and                  ____


                Cause my love to glow


                Cause my dreams to soar

                                Please make my dreams come

                                True                                                                       ____


                                Please cause me to live like


                Show your strong teeth

                To my enemies


                Make them buckle, make

                Them shake at their knees

Lion of Judah,

Open your mouth, and                  ____

The Beauty of Our Friendship

Relationships like ours are rare
Living in moments, ready to share
What God has made for you and me
You see?
We are the product of God’s handiwork
With all our weird qualities, all of our quirks
Designed for each other
In a beauty that glows like amber
Our friendship is priceless
To others we don’t make sense
But that’s what beauty is all about
It’s taking an unfamiliar route
In pursuit of love and happiness
Trudging through the dark times and mess
It’s being present even through the tears
Working through each other’s fears
It’s loving with all that’s within
Checking each other’s sin
That’s the beauty of our friendship
It has survived through hardship
And it will continue to survive
It will continue to thrive
And as we take on the world
I quickly understand that I am a blessed girl
To have you in my life
To your future husband, you’ll make a great wife
In life, we’re in our prime
So cheers, here’s to better times.

This poem was written for my best friend in the whole world, besides Jesus…Ms. Erica Gray aka “E”.  Today is our friendaversary! We have been friends for 7 years and she has stuck by me through the good times and the bad times.  I can count my friends on my hand and out of all of the them, she has remained loyal, patient and has just been my ride–or-die chick.  She is awesome.  She’s more than my friend, she’s my sister and if she ever needed anything- I would be right there. So I encourage you to celebrate your friendships and to love those around you.  If you have an “Erica” in your life, you are one blessed person- acknowledge their importance every chance that you get.  Great friends are a gift from God and should be cherished!  I love you guys and happy celebrating!!!!

Until next time,

Mo 🙂

“One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.”Proverbs 18:24
