Like I'm gonna lose you (cover/accompaniment)

Played by Jen Caouette


Like I'm Gonna Lose You
Meghan Trainor
I found myself dreaming
In silver and gold
Like a scene from a movie
That every broken heart knows we were walking on moonlight
And you pulled me close
Split second and you disappeared and then I was all alone
I woke up in tears
With you by my side
A breath of relief
And I realized
No, we're not promised tomorrow
So I'm gonna love you
Like I'm gonna lose you
I'm gonna hold you
Like I'm saying goodbye wherever we're standing
I won't take you for granted 'cause we'll never know when
When we'll run out of time so I'm gonna love you
Like I'm gonna lose you
I'm gonna love you like I'm gonna lose you
In the blink of an eye
Just a whisper of smoke
You could lose everything
The truth is you never know
So I'll kiss you longer baby
Any chance that I get
I'll make the most of the minutes and love with no regrets
Let's take our time
To say what we want
Use what we got
Before it's all gone
'Cause no, we're not promised tomorrow
So I'm gonna love you
Like I'm gonna lose you
I'm gonna hold you
Like I'm saying goodbye wherever we're standing
I won't take you for granted 'cause we'll never know when
When we'll run out of time so I'm gonna love you
Like I'm gonna lose you
I'm gonna love you like I'm gonna lose you
I'm gonna love you
Like I'm gonna lose you
I'm gonna hold you
Like I'm saying goodbye wherever we're standing
I won't take you for granted 'cause we'll never know when
When we'll run out of time so I'm gonna love you
Like I'm gonna lose you
I'm gonna love you like I'm gonna lose you

Reading from Dr. Kenneth E. Hagin of blessed memory is invigorating and faith fortifying. I have decided to bless your life today with a few of his words which will give you the power to walk in victory.
  1. People that think wrong believe wrong, and when they believe wrong, they act wrong.
  2. Our confession will either imprison us or set us free. Our confession is the result of our believing, and our believing is the result of our right or wrong thinking.
  3. The Holy Spirit knows what’s coming even if you don’t.
  4. Believe it in your heart; say it with your mouth. That is the principle of faith. You can have what you say.
  5. Success is always the result of following the leading of the Holy Spirit.
  6. Faith changes hope into reality.
  7. Feeling is the voice of the body; reasoning is the voice of the mind; conscience is the voice of the spirit.
  8. Central Truth: Prayer is successful only when it is based on the promises in God’s Word!
  9. Today is not as dark as some men would have you to believe. Today is not as desolate and desperate as the media so often portray. Today is the day of the Lord – a day of deliverance, a day of blessing, a day of visitation.
  10. Praying in tongues charges your spirit like a battery charger charges a battery.
  11. Be quick to repent and quick to forgive and you’ll never be far from God.
  12. If what you hear preached doesn’t cause faith to come and build faith in your spirit, then it either isn’t the Word of God or else you’re not hearing it
  13. Thoughts may come and persist in staying. But thoughts that are not put into word or action die unborn!
  14. Believers should never deal with doubts and fears because they are the devil’s narcotics.
  15. Jesus, in His earth walk, was the will of God in action. If you want to know what God thinks about sickness – look at Jesus! He went about healing the sick!
  16. Thinking faith thoughts, and speaking faith words, will lead the heart out of defeat and into victory.
  17. Stay put in the hard places, and you’ll eventually rest upon the mountaintop
  18. God’s richest blessings await those who follow after His Spirit, instead of being directed only by their senses and circumstances.
  19. God is glorified through healing and deliverance, not through sickness and suffering.
  20. Do not have any anxiety about anything.
  21. The bible, from Genesis to Revelation, is God’s I Will” to every seeker for full salvation of spirit, soul and body.
  22. God wants us to prosper. Our need, however, is to evaluate things as they should be evaluated – to esteem earthly things lightly – to put first things first.
  23. If you are not satisfied with what you have then check up on what you are saying.
  24. When God moves, everybody will be blessed. If something is of the flesh, everybody will have a sick feeling. And if something is of the devil, it seems like the hair will stand up on your neck. That’s a simple way everyone can judge, whether they’ve got any spiritual discernment or not.
  25.  Yes, sin, sickness and disease, spiritual death, poverty and everything else that’s of the devil once ruled us. But now, bless God, we rule them – for this is the Day of Dominion!

Spring 2016 updates, it has been a while...

Since my last blog entry, several months ago, a few things have happened.
The most exciting news is that I am now the proud grandmom of a beautiful baby girl! My oldest daughter had her in March 2016 and both are doing great! I may put some of her on occasion :) She is such a cutie, and yes,I know I am biased as her grandma, but really- she is adorable!
I was not really excited about the thought of being a grandmother, mostly because it confirms that I am, indeed, getting older.. no matter how badly I want to ignore it.
The other smaller event was my turning fifty. woohoo..yippee :/ whatever. It was a long year from 49-50. I was and may still be somewhat depressed. My hormones are up and down, hot flashes occur at any given time and my mood swings are lots of fun(Not)!
Since it was such a big turning point for me,  I was really hoping my family would have a celebration of some sort, as most of my friends' did.I was expecting my family would do a small party or dinner, at least a cake.😟. They did say happy birthday, and a few friends posted facebook greetings. I guess it should have been enough, but I felt greatly let down.
 Anyway, turning fifty and becoming a grand parent are enough, but my middle child graduated from college and now my baby boy is finishing elementary school and going into middle school! Geez!😲 They sure are growing old ;)  My son is not very enthused about it because he will be attending a smaller,private school in town and not public with most of his friends. It is going to be good once he settles in, but he isn't so sure just yet.
 My middle kid is moving from our home to her sister and brother in law's house.She babysits for them, so maybe now she will be on time in the morning ;) They were all living here from October 2015 til the baby was born. They just bought a house and are settling in to the every day task of keeping their head above the red- line water, known as homeownership. I wish them the best and they know we are right down the road if they need anything <3
 One thing my husband went through is having an eye stroke. I never even heard of such a thing until it happened to him. He has been having extremely bad headaches for several years, no known cause at this time, but they have been wicked bad for him to live through. He was sleeping and woke up to literally a blinding pain in his left eye. In the morning he realized he couldn't see in his left eye. He went to have it checked out and was told he had an eye stroke. He has peripheral vision but not central. They gave him steroid injections right into the eye ball,which helped minimally, but not a lot. His headaches are currently being held under control mainly by Excedrin migraine pills and indemethicin.  If he forgets them he knows by the slamming pain in his head.😥
 My worst ailment is being allergic to things, such as menthol, mint, latex, coconut, tree nuts, cats and a few other things. I will be having allergy testing to find out more, just what I need..more of life to avoid. sheesh.
 Thanks for keeping with this post the whole way through, and as a special treat for continuing on, I will post a photo of me holding my grand baby =D

She is so adorable! <3
Love and blessings,

"90 Minutes in Heaven" Book/movie review

   90 Minutes in Heaven is a captivating story about a man who died in a car crash, yet lived to tell about it.
 Don Piper gives an account of his ordeal when he was in a terrible car wreck with a semi, got crushed to death, and found himself at Heaven’s gate.
He tells of the brilliance and beauty he saw while there, then the agonizing return when he was told it was not him time to be there, yet.
The story centers on his recovery, the family and friends who help him through it all, and his growing faith in the God who he realizes has never left his side.
  I recommend the book and movie to anyone who wonders what a near death experience was like, as well as those who love a good story.
 The informational links and movie trailer are also listed below.
 Have a blessed day!
 Love, Lori LC

Happy Spring has arrived!

I have been enjoying the last week's weather of warmer temps and more sunshine. Nearly all the snow has melted from our yard and I am able to get out and take walks after dinner, which is also my favorite time to photograph landscapes. I have been taking an online photography class and learning to shoot almost completely o manual mode, except for some auto focusing because wearing glasses is difficult when using the view finder.
 Here are a few pics taken this week while walking to the park in the neighborhood. I hope you enjoy them, and keep in mind that I am not a professional just a hobbyist who loves photography :)
I also posted some of the same on my photo blog,but added a few more here that are more recent.

In the movie, GLEN CAMPBELL…I’LL BE ME, we follow the story of music legend Glen Campbell and his final fare well concert series in 2012. Glen Campbell has been widely known for both country and contemporary music entertainment and has won  multiple Grammy Awards, Academy of Country Music awards, a Pioneer Award recognition, American Music Awards, Country Music Association Awards and Gospel Music Association Dove Awards.
 When he was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in 2011, he wanted people to know why he was slowly fading from the music scene. He went on a“Goodbye Tour,”with his family and put on quite a show. We see the behind the scenes look of how the love and support of his family helps him continue forward. It shows Glen and his wife, Kim, and their story of love, resilience and the power of song.
  The movie is coming out this month . You will  not be disappointed!

Here is a link to more info about Glen Campbell's...I'll Be Me:

There are also many videos of Glen Campbell, which I recommend to all who enjoy fine music!
Love and Blessings,

A Day at Hampton Beach

 I recently spent a day at Hampton Beach with a friend and her family. It was my first time there, which may be surprising since I live in NH and love being at the ocean. We left her house around 8:30 am. After nearly three hours of driving, we finally got our first glimpse of Hampton beach. I smiled and shouted hooray! We’re almost there!
Parking was not too difficult, it cost ten dollars for the day.
We unloaded and found a place on the sand, not far from the beach, near lifeguard chair 11.
Before the blanket and items were set out the kids were ready to run to the water. We applied sunscreen on the kids; I considered putting on sunscreen but decided to take my chances in hopes of getting some color since it was probably the last chance of sitting in the warm sun before fall set in.
Then they all ran down to the water. I wanted to run, too, but tried to act cool and moseyed down with the smaller children, who were hooting and hollering in excitement!  Seagulls and voices of happy beach goers added to the cacophony.
The waves and salty air welcomed me.When my feet reached the water i was prepared for chilly water but it was not too frigid. It was warmer than anticipated, so i strode out to nearly my knees.
The wind caused waves to blow salty water over me.There was an impending storm for the next day and the yellow flag by the lifeguard chair indicated rip tides.As I stood by the shore feeling the surf scoop sand away from my feet,  it reminded me of how life can be unpredictable and you could lose your footing if not cautious. 
 I watched the kids play as the waves pushed them farther away from where i stood. i kept waving for them to get closer to where i was but they were often too busy to even look up at me.
Yelling their name was almost useless because the wind and waves were too loud.
There were sailboats in the distance and I wondered how they were faring in the tumultuous wind.
Since my friends were watching the kids, I decided to go back to the blanket to relax.
I sat on my low beach chair and dug my feet in the sand, smiled and felt happy and at peace. :)

I later realized how much the wind and sun reddened my skin and should have put on sunscreen after all..
We all had a great time and are looking forward to our next day at the beach! :)

Week Two,still reeling from giving up,8/1/14

  I do not intend for this to be a place to air our marital problems, but more of a confirmation for others to know there are other couples who are going through tough times, and are trying to work through them. Giving up our self-centered lives and focusing more on being a couple.
  A few weeks ago, my husband and I had a huge blow out. I had decided at that point that I had had enough of putting up with verbal and emotional bashing, and said I was leaving.
I did not feel upset or scared.Just peace and relief from finally choosing to be free after all the years of battling over every little thing. He, on the other hand, was absolutely stunned that I felt that way. After all, all the other times I just put up with it and we went on like there was nothing wrong. I could not put that mask on any more. I started packing my clothes and items in boxes and moved into the spare room while looking for a place to move into. My emotions were completely turned off, as though a plug came loose and drained all my feelings except peace. He was frantic in trying to understand how I could change so quickly after being together for 25 years. I realized this has been building for a while, and cannot even pin point when I stopped feeling emotionally close.
  There were times in the past when we reached a similar point, but we talked things out rather quickly and I stayed. Some changes were made, but after a while,we ended up in the same behavior patterns. We would start irritating each other and resentments would build up for our next battle. I do not want to continue in that cycle. He says he also wants to change, for good this time. He sought counseling and has been reaching out to people who are helping him make the changes. We have been reading The Love Dare,by Alex and Stephen Kendrick. I was not really interested in this at first because I was not sure if I even wanted to reconcile again. Talking about things over and over again has been frustrating because he wants to know how long it is going to take for me to feel emotionally close to him again. well, do you have the answer to that? because I sure do not.
  He has been showing me more kindnesses and acts of love in the past weeks than he had in a year. I do not know how to react to them except to say thank you and wonder who he is. When we were at odds I knew what to do or say because it was our norm, but now my standard answers have become dry and caustic and I see how my actions continued the cycle of our resentments and arguments. I also need to make changes in my attitude, but am not sure what or how to change.
  I want to feel more but am not ready to open my heart because it has been hurt too many times. I want to return his loving gaze and tell him the same sentiments he whispers, but am feeling confused. I did intend to move out, and even looked at apartments, but I decided to try working it out one more time. That reminds me of another book we are reading by Gary Chapman, called One More Try.  It focuses mainly on couples forgetting about splitting up and just stay together for the sake of staying a couple and working out problems instead of separating. I do not necessarily agree with that,because I still need time apart to think things through,but do not have that time or space. He hovers close to me, expecting me to change in front of his eyes.Waiting to see me smile or open my arms for a loving embrace. it may be a while longer before that happens, but he is watching me,constantly..
  I am taking steps to being kinder and open to our reconciling. I spend time talking together, reading from the Love Dare, When I do the laundry, I now allow our clothes to touch and not put his in a separate pile. I am even sleeping back in our bed,with a pillow between us. As he watches me sleep..
  I am still selfish and self-centered in some ways, but it is taking time for my heart and emotions to heal. I do appreciate his willingness to be kinder and thoughtful, even attending church together and shopping together. I have been accustomed to doing them alone,so it is an adjustment to have him there. It is not a bad thing, just different. I do not have any alone time because he wants to be with me so much. I am not seeing any one else, as he asked me early on. And he said he is not, either.
  I do hope we continue to grow closer and to start feeling closer emotionally. Focusing on the positive is most helpful and forgiveness has helped the process. The echoes of his hurtful words still resonate, but they are getting more faint as we move on.
 I hope something I said has helped you in some way, even to comsider making a positive change in your own life.
There are people who care, especially God.  And me :)
 Have a blessed day!
