‘beg me (please) to stay’ // R A R M S T * R

Hope you like the pop-punk-y vibes of this one – kept it short and sweet! (:

Lyrics:
“Take your time watching me go
Do you want us both to be alone?
Oh won’t you beg me please to stay?
Am I just wasting my time?
Should I just call it a night?
But oh won’t you beg me please to stay?

‘Cause I know I’ll do everything to make you happy
And I’ll be there through every storm that tries to sweep us off course
‘Cause I know I’ll do everything to make you happy
And I’ll be there through every storm that tries to sweep us off course

Take your time watching me go
Do you want us both to be alone?
Oh won’t you beg me please to stay?
Am I just wasting my time?
Should I just call it a night?
But oh won’t you beg me please to stay?”

‘keep (pray)’ // R A R M S T * R

 

Really, really been enjoying making these little songs/pieces of music over the last month or two.  Posted this one on YT last week, and got another one today which I’ll post on here too!

Hope you like this one called ‘keep (pray)’.  Like the almost chant-like nature of it, and its message of holding onto faith and hope.

Lyrics:
“I’ll keep walking (going)
Though it feels I’m stumbling
Though it feels I’m falling
O, I’ll keep walking
Though my heart is breaking
Though my soul is tired
O, I’ll keep praying…”

I Just Watched… The Pacific! (Thinking about WWII)

This week’s episode of ‘I Just Watched…’ looks at ‘The Pacific’, a mini-series from HBO which tells the story of a groups of marines during WWII who fought in the Pacific Ocean.

The tone is a bit more serious for me – it’s only natural when talking about a series topic like war – but hope you enjoy it all the same.

Have a great weekend.  You are loved.  You are awesome!! (:

Pokémon Drawing Challenge

PDC: #149 – ‘Toothless the Dragonite’

Really, really thankful for my mum and dad – for a whole lot of things – but feeling it especially this week because they got me a ‘Wacom’ drawing tablet for my bday!!! ☺️

Seemed fitting to christen it with a Pokémon drawing — and who better than the OG dragon: Dragonite!  I’ve got a LvL 100 one in my Pokémon Bank called ‘Toothless’, and he’s one of my absolute favourites (also got another one called ‘LeBron’!)

Hope you like the drawing — really enjoying getting to grips with the tablet! (:

(Featuring: #149 Dragonite🐲 + some flowers! 🌸🌺🌼)

Who said the road would be easy?

Found this old painting I did a good few years at ‘Imagine’ when I was tidying up my bedroom yesterday.  I’d totally forgotten about it! Guess it was the first time I really painted or drew just for my own enjoyment.

Seems like a lifetime ago.

The painting is pretty explicit in its theme: it’s about how the road might be difficult, but we’ll get there in the end…

A Letter from God…

My child,

I love you.

You don’t need to compare yourself to other people.  You are unique, unique for a reason.  I made you.

Your worth is not found in what you do, who you’re with, where you are, or how much that person likes you: it is found in who you are, and who your Father is.

Don’t believe the lie that it’s good to never feel happy: that is not my purpose.  I am the joy-giver, the River of Life.  I am hope.

Give away more than you get.

Don’t forget about your family.  They love you, and you are together for a reason.

You don’t have to do this alone.  I am here.

Trust me.

Don’t believe the lies the enemy puts on you: they don’t even make sense anyway.  Listen to my voice.  I am leading you to green pastures and quiet waters.

You can do all things with me by your side.  Don’t put limits on what I can do.  I made the world.  I made the universe.

Be who I made you, not the imitation of someone else.  Be you.

I love you.

I.  Love.  You.
