Memories Remain

Making Memories

Memories remain

Within my heart and mind

of things so long ago

of things I’ve left behind.

Of people I have loved

and lost along the way….

the spirit still lives on,

the love is here to stay.

It only takes a moment,

 

to restore what used to be,…

like footprints in the sand

they’ve left their mark on me.

Memories remain

forever they will be….

ingrained upon my heart,

where love resides in me.

I devote these words to special people who have touched my life and moved on,who have grown up and made a new life for themselves, who have died but still live in my memory.

A Recipe for Happiness

Published February 21, 2017 by Healthy Living with nature

 

 A Philosophy towards life.

Thinking of my loved ones is my recipe for happiness

Happiness is something 

we create in our mind

It’s not something we search for

 but can’t seem to find.

It’s not something that’s

 purchased with silver or gold

not something that force

 can capture and hold.

It’s just waking up

                                                           and beginning each new day,

by counting our blessings

 and kneeling to pray.

It’s giving up thoughts

that breed discontent,

and accepting what comes

as a gift heaven sent.

It’s giving up wishing 

for things we have not,

and making the best

whatever we’ve got.

It’s knowing that life

is determined and planned,

and that God holds the world

in the palm of his hand.

And it’s by completing

what God gives us to do,

that we find our contentment

and happiness, too.

  Joan Hiscock

May peace and happiness find their way from your heart. 

Let There be Light

Light changes everything

Have you ever sat in the quietness of the dawn watching the scene unfolding before you and everything gradually comes into focus as the sun rises into the heavens?

 Breathtaking!

Or…. have you noticed the light that filters through the tree tops, on a warm summer’s day, casting flickering shadows on the cool grass surrounding you?

Bliss!

Or…. have you observed how clouds can part and allow rays of light hit bodies of water and transform them into shimmering jewels?

 Sensational!

Light can set mood, facilitate direction and promote growth.

It’s uncanny how problems always seem bigger on cold, dark wintry or wet overcast days. And yet we can find comfort in lifting our face skywards, eyes shut, towards the warmth and light of the sun. Worries seem to diminish in the light of day.

Photographers can create masterpieces with their abilities to capture light in their photographs and make them extraordinary. Their understanding of light is important to transform the quality of the picture they are presenting.

Awe-inspiring!

Jesus, as the light of the world, offers us HOPE for miraculous change —- as light miraculously transforms the landscape and mood around us —- no matter how complex our situations are.

Inspirational!

No matter what our circumstances, Jesus in our darkest moments is a constant source of LOVE, HOPE and COMFORT. He’s the light to help us in the way ahead and He is a means to letting our personal potential

Revealing Revelation

Reflective Revelation

What you are

is revealed by what you do…..

What you do

reveals what you truly believe.

If you cherish every moment

all the beauty of each day,

if you treasure simple pleasures

little joys life brings your way,

If you inspire love and friendship

because you’re warm and dear….

You’re a special kind of person

 who grows nicer with each year.

Take time to smell the roses. It’s well worth finding out what the things are we miss out on if we don’t take the time to look.

I WILL live with JOY in my heart.

Purposeful Positivity

I love being positive. It’s good for the soul. Today I was looking for birthday verses and found this nifty little gem of positivity I’d love to share with you:

How could one not be positive with this little bit of nonsense to lead the way?

Naturally…. my word for today is… “POSITIVE!”

I WILL live in joy!

Love and Nature

Nurturing Nature

 My attempt at poetry…. if the words don’t rhyme it’s not poetry for me.

Nature Love

I love fluffy clouds

As they float on by.

 I love the azure blue

Of the day lit sky.

My love is for wildflowers,

Beauty of my dreams,

My love is for the musical babble

Of fast moving streams.

I so love the birdsong

In mornings so cool.

I so love the coldness

Of a deep mountain pool.

Scudding cloud beauty,

Wildflower spread,

Running water babble,

Brings peace to my head.

Stopping to smell the flowers sometimes makes one focus on other beautiful things around and about.
