Drugs- Liquid or dry:
 DRUGS:Liquid or dry:
 I destroy homes, tear families apart, take your children, and that’s just the start. I’m more costly than diamonds, more costly than gold, the sorrow I bring is a sight to behold, and if you need me, remember I’m easily found. I live all around you, in schools and in town. I live with the rich, I live with the poor, I live down the street, and maybe next door. My power is awesome; try me on and u’ll see,… but if you do, you may never break free!!!
 Just try me once and I might let you go, but try me twice, and I’ll own your soul. When I possess you, you’ll steal and you’ll lie. You do what you have to just to get high. The crimes you’ll commit for my narcotic charms will be worth the pleasure you’ll feel in your arms if you do, you may never break free. Just try me once and I might let you go, but try me twice and Ill own your soul. When I possess you, you’ll steal and you’ll lie. You do what you have to just to get high. The crimes you’ll commit for my narcotic charms will be worth the pleasure you’ll feel in your arms. You’ll lie to your mom; you’ll steal from your dad. When you see their tears, you should feel sad. But you’ll forget your morals and how you were raised, I’ll be your conscience, I’ll teach you my ways. I take kids from parents, and parents from kids, I turn people from God, and separate from friends. I’ll take everything from you, your looks and your pride, I’ll be with you always, right by your side. You’ll give up everything, your family, your friends, your money, your home, and then you’ll be alone. I’ll take and take, till you have nothing more to give. When I’m finished with you you’ll be lucky to live. If you try me be warned this is no game. If given the chance, I’ll drive you insane. I’ll ravish your body; I’ll control your mind. I’ll own you completely; your soul will be mine. The nightmares I’ll give you while lying in bed, the voices you’ll hear from inside your head, the sweats, the shakes, the visions you’ll see; I want you to know, these are all gifts from me. But then it’s too late, and you’ll know in your heart, that you are mine, and we shall never part. You’ll regret that you tried me, they always do, but you came to me, not I to you. You knew this would happen. Many times you were told, but you challenged my power, and chose to be bold. You could have said no, and just walked away. If you could re-live that day, now what would you say? I’ll be your master; you will be my slave, I’ll even go with you, when you go to your grave. Now that you have met me, what will you do? Will you try me or not? Its all up to you. I can bring you more misery than words can tell. Come take my hand, let me lead you to hell… Re-post this and you might save a life or at least make someone think twice.

Matthew West - Strong Enough (by MatthewWestVEVO)
“Strong Enough”

You must
You must think I’m strong
To give me what I’m going through

Well, forgive me
Forgive me if I’m wrong
But this looks like more than I can do
On my own

I know I’m not strong enough to be
everything that I’m supposed to be
I give up
I’m not stong enough
Hands of mercy won’t you cover me
Lord right now I’m asking you to be
Strong enough
Strong enough
For the both of us

Well, maybe
Maybe that’s the point
To reach the point of giving up

Cause when I’m finally
Finally at rock bottom
Well, that’s when I start looking up
And reaching out

I know I’m not strong enough to be
Everything that I’m supposed to be
I give up
I’m not stong enough
Hands of mercy won’t you cover me
Lord right now I’m asking you to be
Strong enough
Strong enough

Cause I’m broken
Down to nothing
But I’m still holding on to the one thing
You are God
and you are strong
When I am weak

I can do all things
Through Christ who gives me strength
And I don’t have to be
Strong enough
Strong enough

I can do all things
Through Christ who gives me strength
And I don’t have to be
Strong enough
Strong enough

Oh, yeah

I know I’m not strong enough to be
Everything that I’m supposed to be
I give up
I’m not stong enough
Hands of mercy won’t you cover me
Lord right now I’m asking you to be
Strong enough
Strong enough
Strong enough

Matthew West - Family Tree (lyrics) (by rockabillychickee)

MY SONG!

"Family Tree"

You didn’t ask for this
Nobody ever would
Caught in the middle of this dysfunction
It’s yoursad reality
It’s your messed up family tree
And all your left with all these questions

Are you gonna be like your father was and his father was?
Do you have to carry what they’ve handed down?

No, this is not your legacy
This is not your destiny
Yesterday does not define you
No, this is not your legacy
This is not your meant to be
I can break the chains that bind you

I have a dream for you
It’s better than where you’ve been
It’s bigger than your imagination
You’re gonna find real love
And you’re gonna hold your kids
You’ll change the course of generations

No, this is not your legacy
This is not your destiny
Yesterday does not define you
No, this is not your legacy
This is not your meant to be
I can break the chains that bind you

Cause you’re my child
You’re my chosen
You are loved
You are loved

And I will restore
All that was broken
You are loved
You are loved

And just like the seasons change
Winter into spring
You’re brining new life to your family tree now
Yes you are
You are

No, this will be your legacy
This will be your destiny
Yesterday did not define you
No, this will be your legacy
This will be your meant to be
I can break the chains that bind you

And just like the seasons change
Winter into spring
You’re brining new life to your family tree now

The Healing Has Begun, Matthew West *lyrics!* (by 2emilyl)

"The Healing Has Begun"

You have carried the weight of your secret for way too long
Thinking if there is a place called forgiveness you don’t belong
Oh, but freedom can never be found behind those walls
So just let ‘em fall, just let ‘em fall
Oh, the healing has begun
Oh, the healing has begun

How long has been since you felt anything but shame
Child, lift up your eyes ‘cause mercy remembers your name
And those tears you’ve been holding back, let ‘em fall down like rain
‘Cause today is the day, yeah today is the day
Oh, the healing has begun [x4]

Halellujah, halellujah
Just lift your eyes
Lay it down
What once was lost
Has now been found, oh

There’s a world full of people dying from broken hearts
Holding on to the guilt, thinking they fell too far
So don’t be afraid to show ‘em your beautiful scars
‘Cause they’re the proof, yeah you’re the proof
Oh, the healing has begun [x6]

Broken Girl by Matthew West (by Mysafehaven88)


“Broken Girl”

Look what he’s done to you
It isn’t fair
Your light was bright and new
But he didn’t care
He took the heart of a little girl
And made it grow up too fast

Now words like “innocence”
Don’t mean a thing
You hear the music play
But you can’t sing
Those pictures in your mind
Keep you locked up inside your past

This is a song for the broken girl
The one pushed aside by the cold, cold world
You are
Hear me when I say
You’re not the worthless they made you feel
There is a Love they can never steal away
And you don’t have to stay the broken girl

Those damaged goods you see
In your reflection
Love sees them differently
Love sees perfection
A beautiful display
Of healing on the way tonight
Tonight

This is a song for the broken girl
The one pushed aside by the cold, cold world
You are
Hear me when I say
You’re not the worthless they made you feel
There is a Love they can never steal away
And you don’t have to stay the broken girl

Let your tears touch to the ground
Lay your shattered pieces down
And be amazed by how Grace can take a broken girl
And put her back together again

This is a song for the broken girl
The one pushed aside by the cold, cold world
You are
Hear me when I say
You’re not the worthless they made you feel
There is a Love they can never steal away
And you don’t have to stay the broken girl
You don’t have to stay the broken girl

Mom allegedly kills tot, goes back to sleep
Cops: Mom fakes son’s disappearance, claims her infant was snatched from his crib. She then confesses she beat the infant to death & dumped the body in a nearby cemetery. Do you have a question for Nancy or her guests? Call right now! 877-NANCY-01

NEED TO KNOW
  • Mom charged with 2nd-degree murder in 1-year-old’s death
  • Prosecutor says she admitted beating him to death because he wouldn’t stop crying
  • Prosecutor says the mother hid body in bushes, went back to sleep
Prosecutors say a Missouri woman admitted to beating her toddler to death because he would not stay quiet in his crib, then hid his body and went back to sleep.
St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch told reporters that his office was in the process of filing second-degree murder charges against 20-year-old Shelby Dasher for the death of her one-year-old son, Tyler. McCulloch said Dasher admitted to detectives that she repeatedly struck the child in the head and body early Tuesday morning because he would not stay quiet in his crib.
She then allegedly dumped his body in the bushes and went back to sleep. McCulloch said the difference between first-degree and second-degree murder would be a lack of evidence of premeditation.
Preliminary autopsy results indicated that Tyler died from blunt force trauma to the head, according to McCulloch. The medical examiner did not see any signs of prior injuries or abuse, he added.
Dasher was being held on $500,000 bond Wednesday night.
She told police that her son disappeared from her Affton home Tuesday morning, and said she last saw him when putting him to sleep around 10:30 p.m. Monday night. He was gone, Dasher said, when she woke up around 11:00 a.m.
Police said there were no signs of forced entry at the house. Nearly 100 officers joined the search for the one-year-old, according to St Louis County Police Chief Tim Fitch.
A few hours later, the body of a young boy was discovered by people walking a dog in a wooded area on the edge of a nearby cemetery, Fitch said Tuesday. Authorities eventually confirmed that it was Tyler.
Two friends of Shelby Dasher told KSDK that they could not believe she was accused of killing her son.
"She would have done anything for Tyler. If she had to go without, that that’s what it would have been. She wouldn’t have thought twice about it,” Holly Barton said.
After Tyler’s body was found on Tuesday, Chief Fitch said whoever was responsible for his death is “a pretty sick person … Anybody that would take a child and leave a child in that condition in a wooded area like this needs to be dealt with severely by the justice system.”
Friends and family planned to hold a vigil for Tyler Dasher at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday.

Everything happens for a reason…it somehow in the end all works out~
The Joyful Heart Foundation is a helpful Resources to survivors

When Mariska Hargitay
started playing Detective Olivia Benson on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit over a decade ago, the content of the scripts, as well as the work she did to prepare for the role, opened her eyes to the epidemics of sexual assault, domestic violence and child abuse. What she learned was staggering:
  • One in three women report being physically or sexually abused by a husband or boyfriend at some point in their lives.

  • Every two minutes in the United States, someone is sexually assaulted.
  • Nearly four children die every day in this country as a result of child abuse and neglect. And up to ten million children witness domestic violence each year.
  • But what really opened her eyes—and subsequently, her heart—was the fan mail she received. The letters didn’t say, “I love your show. Can you send me an autographed picture?” They said, “I was raped when I was fifteen. I’m forty now and I’ve never told anyone.” Victims were disclosing their stories to her, many for the first time.
    Mariska founded Joyful Heart in 2004 with the intention of helping survivors heal and reclaim their lives. Today, Joyful Heart’s mission is to heal, educate and empower survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence and child abuse, and to shed light into the darkness that surrounds these issues.
    Since 2004, over 2,000 survivors have participated in Joyful Heart’s pioneering retreat and wellness programs, thousands more have taken that first important step to get help through our website, and our participation in national educational and media awareness campaigns has planted the seeds of a changed awareness in the lives of millions. This year alone, the Foundation will directly serve over 2,000 survivors and the professionals who care for them.
    Our Vision
    Everybody knows that rape, sexual assault and child abuse happen. Society is willing to look at this reality from time to time, but is just as willing to forget the horrible truth about how many survivors are walking among us. The Joyful Heart Foundation is working to build a community that is strong enough not to push this reality away, a community that acknowledges the dark side of this issue, but endeavors to turn toward the light of healing, the path to possibility and the clarity of honest dialogue.
    We envision a community that says to a survivor "We hear you. We believe you. We feel for you. You are not alone. And your healing is our priority.

    Like Joyful Heart, there are organizations who care and who want to provide the assistance you are seeking and deserve.

    Joyful Heart is not a crisis center and does not provide emergency services including: crisis intervention, counseling, housing, legal or financial assistance. We are able, however, to connect you to information and resources where these services are available. We encourage you to take the next step and contact the appropriate resource.

    This is a great song!!! Love it!! Great band!!

    Fireflight - For Those Who Wait

    From the album For Those Who Wait
    This is for those who waitAnother day another waiting game
    A little different but it’s still the same
    I am here but where’s the One I’m longing for?
    I’m having trouble feeling all alone
    Will my heart ever find a home?
    I want to hope but sometimes 
    I just don’t know
    I know I’m not the only one

    (Chorus)
    So we sing a lullaby
    To the lonely hearts tonight
    Let it set Your heart on fire
    Let it set You free
    When you’re fighting to believe
    in a love that you can’t see
    Just know there is a purpose 
    For those who waitI want to open up my eyes
    I know that all I need is time
    I’m growing stronger every single day
    God, I’m gonna lean into You now
    Letting go of all my fear and doubt
    I can’t do this on my own so
    I’ll give You control
    I know I’m not the only one

    ChorusThe pressure makes us stronger
    The struggle makes us hunger
    The hard lessons make the difference
    The pressure makes us stronger
    The struggle makes us hunger
    The hard lessons make the difference
    And the difference makes it worth it

    ChorusLet it set your on fire
    This is for those that wait
