How we live

by Michelle Demeree

We live through each other.

We take moments in our lives

Then we give it to someone we love.

We give to those we love.

For then, when we have a need

They give to us.

In time, as we pray

Moments are given back to us

As we all pray in Christ.

My Story

by Michelle Demeree

My story begins with love.

                My story begins with prayers.

                                        My story begins with hope.

Through  hope, love and prayers,

                                                                     I found faith in the Lord,

                                                                            Finding faith in all I do.

God has put me here to make a difference.

             He has given me His heart of gold for others.

                       Now I love to pray for all people.

                                       Inside my heart, I feel God’s love.

Through hope, love and prayers,

                                                                    I found faith in the Lord,

                                                                       Finding faith in all I do.
