Train Of Life


Train Tracks ... Looking Foreward



Train Of Life

          Some folks ride the train of life
          Looking out the rear,
          Watching miles of life roll by,
          And marking every year.
          They sit in sad remembrance,
          Of wasted days gone by,
          And curse their life for what it was,
          And hang their head and cry.
          But I don't concern myself with that,
          I took a different vent,
          I look forward to what life holds,
          And not what has been spent.
          So strap me to the engine,
          As securely as I can be,
          I want to be out on the front,
          To see what I can see.
          I want to feel the winds of change,
          Blowing in my face,
          I want to see what life unfolds,
          As I move from place to place.
          I want to see what's coming up,
          Not looking at the past,
          Life's too short for yesterdays,
          It moves along too fast.
          So if the ride gets bumpy,
          While you are looking back,
          Go up front, and you may find,
          Your life has jumped the track.
          It's all right to remember,
          That's part of history,
          But up front's where it's happening,
          There's so much mystery.
          The enjoyment of living,
          Is not where we have been,
          It's looking ever forward,
          To another year and ten.
          It's searching all the byways,
          Never should you refrain,
          For if you want to live your life,
          You gotta drive the train.

          Shadows Of Yesterdays .... Looking Back



          I was riding my bike one day, and I stopped dead in my tacks,or should I say train tracks.

          It was a late summer afternoon, and I had gone for a ride on the waterfront trail, and was on my way back home.

          Out of the corner of my eye I looked in both directions, and this is what I saw. This is a little moment in history. I am looking forward to what lies ahead, but since I haven’t been out with my camera in awhile this is from my archives. :)



          I have had a lot going on in my life, and that of my family. I would ask that you remember my Daughter-In Law (Sandra) and my little granddaughter who as of yet hasn’t been born. They are in the hospital in a NICU, because the baby is only 33 weeks old at this time. She is expected to have a premature arrival. I would appreciate your prayers for them, and that the baby would have a safe, and healthy arrival.

          The last few weeks have been very unsettling for all of us, and stressful as well.

          I know they are both in God’s Hands, as we all are.

          The Medical Team is hoping that the baby can stay safely in the womb until the 34th week, and then if need be they will induce her labor . This is the short version of what has been happening without going into too much detail. Please remember my son who is the daddy, and Tesa, Jenna, and Courtney who are missing mom, and looking so foreword to having another little sister to be part of their family.


          My other son and daughter-in-law are also expecting a little baby boy in August. :)

          I had the pleasure of watching a 3D ultrasound, live broadcasting on my computer, yesterday. I got to watch my not yet born little grandson, in his mom’s womb. He was blowing bubbles , and was quite active. It brought me to happy tears as I watched the miracle of life before my very eyes. I only wish I could have seen the expression on my son’s and daughter-in-laws face as they watched their son. I am so very happy and excited for the both of them.

          Life is good, and so very Precious!

          Well there are other things going on in my life also, but this is more than enough for one day.

          God Bless and be with you all. Have a good week.

          Sincerely Dianne :)
