Heartsong's  Thoughts

These are my thoughts they were written as the thoughts come to mind. The date and time is when certain ones were written. These writings are an unbroken chain of my thoughts.

I have been writing since 1973. I have never and will never sale my writings or my drawing.

They are all a piece of who I am. Because God has never failed me and without Him I would not have these gifts I share my writings and my art with all people worldwide. love and peace  - Jan Tetstone  Sept 2, 2017




With time sometimes
come uncertainty
because people have
a tendency to forget.

A day is never wasted
when one does the best
they can in it.

Never look negatively
at life
a positive mindset
can save one a lot
of strife.

An active mind
holds back time
on the mind. jt

Memories are made
to be remembered .jt

Faults are in the
best of people. jt

A mistake can't be
undone but one can
remember not to make
the same mistake. jt

have its way. jt

Follow your heart in all things you do
When faced with hard times
Love will get you through.


Smile !
Never think things can't be worse
when you are tired and weary
the brightest day can turn to gray.
Don't give in to self pity.
Think positive everyday.

Without help not everything falls into place
Sometimes a helping hand is all it takes.
Do what you can to create beauty
And be thankful for the peace that
warms you in the day. jt

Don't ever doubt your ability to succeed
at anything you choose to do....
Falling down sometimes happens
But getting up is up to you.
Believe in yourself-
Dreams do come true. jt

Smiles are catching.....Here's a smile for you.  jt



I thought you'd like to know
I didn't desert you
the internet wouldn't let my
messages go through.
May the day hold for you
good thoughts and kind deeds
and may the eyes of the angels
rest upon you. and guide you
with love in a world
we are all just passing through

For a lifetime of failure and success
For friend and foe I've met along the way
For all the things that made my life worth living
Thank you God on this Thanksgiving Day..

Everyday is a day to be thankful
May God bless your house to be a home filled
with warmth, laughter and peace....
May your heart be filled with love
for friend and foe...
and may the angels watch over you
wherever you are- and wherever you go. jt

 It's the wee hours of the morning
Every thing around me is still asleep
as the warmth from the heater
warms my feet.
God bless the one reading this
keep them safe in the day
fill their heart and home with love
In Jesus' name I pray.

Life isn't about who will or will not love you
Life is about you and how much you love
Your happiness begins and ends with you
Regardless of all else
to yourself be true.


Love is the people who
touch your life
and move your heart.
Not all one loves will
forever be a part of their life
but the memories of the ones we love
will stay always in our heart
safely locked away.
jt 6:34pm Nov 20, 2017

Time has a way of slipping away
Love, and be happy
in the day.

Don't let yesterday's
hinder your dreams
and rob you of your hope
for a better tomorrow
Keep faith, always
with you in the day.

The Light

Lord, the day has began so cold
Tho the sun stands bright and bold
The animals stand still in the light
beneath the faded sky
QUITE oh quite o world of mine
waiting for the warmth from the sunshine.

Lord, you control nature and the way
things are done....when you get the time
will you warm the standing sun?
The animals are standing so still
they need to run and play in the
warmth of the sun on a beautiful day.

Lord, while you're warming the sun
please, warm the hearts of men
Let them see your shinning light
You are the beginning and the end.

Love and light go together
where you find one
you will find the other.

You're  special because
my heart tells me so. 


Love is the gift one gives from the heart
A wholeness a peace in knowing
our loves keeps
us together
Together or apart.

Smile because the person who is typing this loves you.

When you get sad and you are lonely too
When your world is gray and you are blue
Remember you're
loved near and far
and Jesus can light up your world for you
no matter where you are.
Keep faith in the day-God will make a way. jt

The beauty in the day rests in you jt Nov 7, 2017


It's ok to think about good things
that was - is - or maybe...

Not thinking about the bad things
Gives one a sense of peace.

Be thankful in the day
for the things that were, are
and will be. jt

Butterfly Butterfly

Your colorful beauty
caught my eye.

Oh, how I love
your outstretched wings
and the peace your
presents always brings.

Take that first step
toward your dream today
don't let disappointments
take your dream away. jt


Let your heartaches teach others
the importance of love.
Every heart that has been broken
has a story to tell.

It's a new day to be
A new day to breathe
A new day to
follow your dreams
reach for your star
and keep faith wherever
you are.

It's your life no one
can live it for you but you

The clouds in the sky
hide the sunshine
The water in the sea
hides unseen beauty
Still the sun is in the sky
and the beauty is in the sea.
Don't think on darker things
think of the beauty yet to be.

Never make plans
to do something days ahead
Life doesn't work that way
Live and do in the day.

No one is perfect
Tho, some think they are
Those closest to perfect
are those who follow
their dreams...to reach
their star. jt

Stop, and look around
Count the blessings

Our state of mind
shows in everything we do
It's okay to leave some things
 undone- take some time off-
and have some fun.


This is for my son (Billy) and his wife (Tonya).....Their baby boy is about an hour old  (July 22. 2017)..... WOW


Just a thought
can bring a smile
or bring a tear
Just a few words
can push one away
or draw one near.
May good thoughts
fill your day....
And all your tears
fade away. jt
9:29pm July 21, 2017

It's easy to settle for things
If there is no desire for change.

A thought has been thought before...

Don't settle for a half-dream come true
as long as there's a breathe in you.
Nothing happens on its own.......

Look at things around you
if there be need for change
it's your everyday world....
Your life to rearrange.

Love is untouchable, yet,
The heart FEELS love....
when love touches you.

Have a loved filled day. jt
2:07pm July 21, 2017

The day may not be all sunny and bright

but it holds the promise

of a brighter future......  jt


Change is good ,when change is good for all...

Never change the things that put a smile on your face...

The things that touch our life doesn't always bring smiles...
But the things that touch our heart can cheer us on our darkest day.

Receiving love is good for heart and soul----

Giving love draws two hearts together, under loves blanket of love and peace.

Be happy ......
 1:18am July 18, 2017

Lonely-is a thing of the mind
Love-is a thing of the heart
Happiness-is a way of life
all seek.. some find, and
Some still seek.
May happiness find you
in the day....
Where love and beauty meet.
Never let uncertainty make you
weak in your faith.
Strive to be worthy of each
new day.

Life goes by fast enough- without any help.

Sometimes we  rush through a day at full speed

without taking the time to count our blessings

then we wonder why the day seem like a repeat

of the day before.

Take time to be thankful.......

May your heart be filled with love and

each moment of your day

be filled with joy and peace.... jt 1:26am July 9, 2017


Money  buys temporary things  that ,with time, will crumble and fade away.... Faith, in unseen things, must be practiced everyday...... Happiness is a thing of the heart. Love cannot be brought-nor, once received, Love cannot be taken away. jt

9:40am July 6, 2017


When times get you down and the sun is hiding behind a cloud of gray..

It's time to count your blessing and take some time for you.

We sometimes forget, it gets dark before the sun shines.... and that

every dark cloud has a silver lining...if only we can, stop feeling

sorry for our self.... long enough to find it.

Trying to talk one's self out of  the darkness of some emotions

Is  like talking to a wall..... But believe me, I've been there...... That's why,

my heart finds it so easy to care.

You are worth more than you may know....  Love yourself, and

never give up on reaching the pot of gold-at the end of  your rainbow. jt July 5, 2017    5:13pm


Some things just need to be shared-because of their power to bring smiles..............SMILES FOR YOU


Time takes away what time gives

nothing in this world lasts forever

cling not to worldly things

that have not the power

to save your soul.

Hold close to your heart the

things you love.....always prepared

to let them go. jt 11:32pm June 30, 2017


Never doubt the good that presents itself

in a day.....be thankful for the bits of

happiness that  some ones kind deed

sends your way.

We all have the power to make the world

a better place. jt 


At my age (68) I know the importance of not

losing sight of who I am. I try never to forget

It's not the outer beauty that shows one's true

beauty. From time to time God let's my inner

self be seen in some of the pictures I take.

My God is my strength....Live

faithfully each day...and no matter

how hard life treats you- your inner

beauty will never fade a way. jt  8:14pm June 27, 2017


It's a beautiful day, when one can open a happy memory, on a stormy day...

Today, is the first day of the rest of your life......May you be blessed with all good things and your life be spared the tears of strife. Smile. It's a new day. A new beginning. May love and peace abide with you your whole life through.  jt  June 27, 2017


Friends may not see each other everyday

but they never lose sight of each other

in their hearts......

Friends are forever......Thank you for

being my friend..... thank you for being you.


Words that have no real meaning when spoken

is like a beautiful dress hanging in a closet  that

never gets worn.

Think of how empty  life would be

if we kept everything bottled up inside.

Never worry about finding words to express

to another your feelings...feelings and emotions

are a big part of what makes us who we are.

Never be a shame to be...to feel, to say what's

in your heart...or reach for your shooting star. jt 6/25/2017.


Time flies by so fast...Much to fast, much to fast..

That's why it's so important

never to forget the memories from years past. that

you want to last......

A memory of a blue bird singing you a song

A child's little hands, filled with flowers ,

reaching out to you...

All the sweetest memories you will ever need

as in life you journey through.

Make a beautiful memory today

for those you love and those who love you.

Smile........we are all in this world together

and we are all just passing through. jt  6/25/2017


The beauty we search for in the world stems from the beauty we carry within.

Look around and you will find..

The beauty you search for has been there all the time.

Look beyond the things the eye can see

to the inner things of beauty...that have the power to

fill your world with love and peace.

Be always thankful for the things  you cherish in the day...For, in the blink of an eye, they can be taken away.

Search for beauty of the lasting kind: love, beauty, and peace of mind. jt   10:00am June 20, 2017


May Love and Peace

abide with thee.....As

you live each day and

 sow love's seed.


Being positive.......goes a long way in overcoming ones bad luck. ...Never want for more than you need. The good luck one finds in the day was placed there to give a heavy heart a little peace. Believe with your heart and God will fill your every need. jt   8:41pm June 19, 2017


Live each day the way it comes to you
and be thankful for all things in it....
So many waste the moments worrying
about things that haven't happened yet.
Live the moments wisely
give your love wings and set love free
to touch other with a degree of peace.
10:12pm June 16, 2017

To all who were born on this day

may the day be blessed with

making happy memories that

never fade away.  jt

Don't judge harshly those who serve money instead of God....  Like all, the rich are journeying through God's testing ground. God don't judge the haves and haves nots differently; God will judge individually the deeds each of us have done from our heart. Do something because you truly care- Not because you want others to give you praise. Live and love in the day. jt  3:38pm June 14, 2017


Look beyond the doubt and gloom that finds its way into your day~

To the beauty that awaits your approval and bids your eyes to stay. 6-13-2017


Don't let my looks fool you ...my heart you cannot see.......but what matters the outer if love lives inside of thee.....May your day be blessed with all good things and your heart love freely. jt 6-8-2017

Let your light shine for the world to see
As each day you strive to find your way.
Among the flowers and the weeds....

DID YOU MISS ME? I sure did miss you.

Sometimes it's better to disappear and reappear, as long as when YOU COME BACK you bring a smile back with you... and a heart full of love....to share with someone in your world 11:36pm June 4, 2017


If we never take the time to get to know our self  we may never know how special we are and what power we process. The power to bring moments of peace to those who need to smile more. jt 


All our lives we seek to find the end of the Rainbow . . . and occasionally we get close enough to finding it... that we feel the wonderful warmth from the rainbow's pot of gold.

Like the stars we wish on as they fall toward earth... it is those things we seek to find that give our life its worth.

How many a three leaf clover has been sacrificed ... in the name of luck?

Our dreams sometimes are the only things in life that comfort our soul.

There is much to see beyond life's' every day scene.

When things are stormy and life feeds on your spirit... reach down into the deepest part and raise the shield of faith that faithfully awaits you in your heart


The power to overcome the  wickedness the world sends your way abides in you night and day.

No one can destroy your spirit unless the destroyer is yourself.

Life will always hold mysteries that none but the heart can know.

If in your life you carry God in life, heart and mind...you have found the pot of gold at the end of life's rainbow.

May peace touch you in the day and love touch you with its heart.    [written 11:15am, September 24, 2012]


Not yesterday or tomorrow can touch me, as long as I live in the moment.

I am not perfect---imperfection is the price we pay for being born.

Peace must enter the world through caring hearts.

The harder something hurts-the longer remembered the lesson learnt. [written 8:27pm September 26, 2012]




The day God has set you in.

Love and be happy for none are promised a tomorrow.



It is not the pain of yesterday one should remember. . .It is the joy! Both walk with us.

Each heart has a voice of its own.

Never let another's short comings weaken your ability to succeed. There will always be some who will hinder the paths another walks. [written 7:49 am  September 27, 2012]

In life, we may not choose all the roads we will travel but we choose how high the bumps.


God is my rock when I need to be strong; my pillow when I need to rest my weary soul. . . and my friend when all others turn their backs  on me.

Love is the key to eternal peace.

Falling down is easy . . . It's getting back up that's sometimes the hardest.

When things are looking there worst, clutch tighter to your shield of faith.

Love, when your heart is breaking.

Sometimes, happiness is formed through another's tears. 

A good cry is good for the soul.

We always feel better after the last tear is dried.

Smile! God loves you---and so do I.


The best way to brighten the day is to look for things that

 make you smile.... These are a couple of things I thought

might bring some smiles:


   May your day be filled with sunshine and your night peaceful sleep.

Life is not always gonna be an easy road to travel - I know of no one who hasn't stumbled at least once....

Keep your heart focused on the Rainbow that awaits at the end of life's storm.

Faith in itself is a powerful thing... It allows us to walk closer to God and empowers us to overcome the evil in the world.

Walk in the Light that lay always before you.

The heart never tires of loving.....

The ability to care we are born with; then we struggle through life trying to grasp some understanding of how some can lose their ability to care for others.

Never look for the bad before you look for the good, in others.


Strive to be the best that you can be- setting examples for those who follow.

The best part of your life is you.

   Have a HAPPY day!!!!!!!



When the day is done, be done with it. . . Tomorrow will bring enough worry in itself.

When you know in your heart you have done the best you knew how to do, to correct a bad situation, leave it to God.


Never look for bad-it will find you soon enough.

A minute spent thinking negative things is a minute wasted.

Beauty can be found every where~ even a rose has thorns.


This day was given to you ~what you do with it is up to you.

Take time to count your blessings and hug the ones you love.  

If  you need someone to hug -and no one is around-I'm here!


We are all strangers passing through
Let us in passing set the best of examples
for those who follow us.

We each make a difference in the world, just by being in it.

There will always be someone worst off  than you.

Look for the worst and Hope for the best. It's always better to be prepared for the worst and have things turn out good... then to look for the best in a situation and have things turn out bad.

Spread some sunshine today- Smile!

Never wait on others-if you want something done - do it yourself.

I am one of those people who wants everything done yesterday.....

Living alone is not so bad once you have learned to get along with yourself.

We each choose the paths we travel in life .... we create our own little world

We are either satisfied with it or we change it.

Some people could have everything one could ever ask for-and still ask for more......

Any day is a good day to stop and smell the flowers.


It's more fun to get high off of life....


Tell someone you love them today! Those three little words are very important to say, and hear, every day....... God loves you and so do I.


Let this day bring what it will~ my faith will stand.

Yesterday's tears belong to yesterday.....

Follow your heart in all things and love will always make a way


I am not a perfect person, therefore, not everything I do in life will be done to perfection.

May the sun shine in your day and love reign in your heart. . .


Miracles happen everyday- Faith works miracles.
Believe with your heart. Miracles are not done by faith alone.
May God work miracles ~ for all in need of one-this day.

There is always room in the day for another smile.
One can never have enough sunshine in their life -----


Often the smallest gift is better than the biggest gift.....

Never look for anything but good in the day ......


Love never leaves us
or it wouldn't be love. jt


Never miss a chance to put a smile on someone's face..... Smiles are catching..... Give a smile to someone today....


I have a love for flowers but have a hard time getting some flowers to bloom so I decided to go flower shopping on the web. Look what I found!!!! There is nothing as special as the person who receives flowers. These flowers  are for you.


The day is never long enough and the night is always much to short.....

The sun may hide behind a cloud
butsthe sun will shine again.

There is no room in faith for doubt......

Live in the day-don't waste the day thinking about tomorrow.....

Love is the life's blood of life......


Everything beautiful makes me smile but sometimes some things not so beautiful can get a laugh or two from me....

Be who you are-That's the only way anyone can get to know the real you.....


There is beauty to be found in the smallest of things -I find beauty in drops of rain quenching the thirst  of everything.

Smile !Someone loves you sight unseen!


Rain or shine ~take time out of the day for yourself............

The lady in pink has a mug of lemonade........

Never say I can't ~ say I will try.....

     I know not what today will bring....

Let it bring what it  will -

I will raise high my faith's sweet shield....

Love  is the gift one gives from the heart

Love cannot be taken away!

Love can only be given......

If peace can be found in the day...
Peace can be found in tomorrow.
What good is peace at the expense
of another's sorrow.
May we all find peace in our day.

Keep Faith in all that you do..
Nothing is lost if we seal its memory in our heart.


I'm here night or day!
