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!

Not an everyday occurrence

Last week as I passed by Coolabunia School I spied this Gigantic Koala taking pride of place near the  front entrance to this cute education facility It caught my eye and I hopped out of my car with my trusty phone and snapped his picture. I thought some enterprising farmer was using this unusual idea to sell his hay. I shared the picture with not a thought of any other reason for having this giant on display.

Then we had lunch at our favourite eatery and— lo and behold we came across the same picture in the local newspaper.

 

Some enterprising parents and past students had  constructed this eye catching fellow to draw attention to the up- and- coming celebrations in May 2016 for the school’s 125th anniversary.

it’s to be a community event with activities throughout the day which will include a hay maze, a maypole (I remember doing this as a little girl), a working machinery display, old fashioned activities such as egg and spoon race(which was fun if you didn’t drop the egg- they didn’t cook them in those days),a recorder band (horrible tinny old noise, but everyone could play one).

Education has changed but community spirit is still alive.

 It looks like an event not to miss out on.

And what a great way to inform everyone that a great Australian icon EDUCATION is still alive and kicking- don’t you think?

See you there on Saturday May 25th 2016 

Where Coolabunia State School, D’Aguilar Highway Coolabunia.

 

Congratulations to the creators. I’m sure everybody has seen it!

Wishful Wanting

Dear Santa,

 This year I don’t want any material gifts delivered under my tree. I have so many wonderful things in my life- most of all good health and happiness. Could you please send me the things that I am requesting below  …….

I would like :

 No more lives torn apart,

That wars would NEVER begin….

 …. and the wars raging now would cease.

And that time would heal all hearts.

 Everyone would have a caring friend,

And RIGHT would always win.

And LOVE would never end.

              Shut Up I’m Still Talking ( via our nephew Philip)

Thank you Santa in anticipation of a “HOPE FILLED” Christmas for myself and 

everybody else on earth.

Your Friend

                   Take Time……. to LOVE!

I found this poem in”Splashes of Joy in the the cesspool of life by Barbara Johnson. It’s is an oldie which I have read many times and it still manages to bring a tear to my eyes.

The Old Violin

‘Twas battered and scarred, and the auctioneer

Thought it scarcely worth his while

To waste much time on the old violin,

 But held it up with a smile.

“What am I bidden, good folks ?” he cried,

Who’ll start the bidding for me?

A dollar, a dollar-now two, only two –

Two dollars, and who’ll make it three?

Three dollars once, three dollars twice,

Going for three” – but no!

From the room far back a grey – haired man

Came forward and picked up the bow;

Then wiping the dust from the old violin,

And tightening up all the strings,

He played a melody pure and sweet,

As sweet as an angel sings.

The music ceased, and the auctioneer,

With a voice that was quiet and low,

Said,” what am I bid for the old violin?”

And he held up the bow,

“A thousand dollars- who’ll make it two?

Two thousand – and who’ll make it three?

Three thousand once and three thousand twice –

 And going and gone, ” said he.

 

The people cheered and some of them cried,

“We do not understand

What changed its worth ?” The man replied:

“The touch of a master’s hand.

 And many a man with a life out of tune,

 

And battered and torn with sin,

 

Is auctioned cheap to a thoughtless crowd,

 Much like the old violin…….

But the Master comes, and the foolish crowd

Never can quite understand

The worth of a soul and the change that’s wrought

By the touch of the Master’s hand.

Myra Brooks Welch 5

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

And no matter how battered and old, the “Master” is not finished yet.

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.

                   Carol Young 2015

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

Purposeful Prayer

The Knots prayer………

Dear God

Please untie the knots

that are in my mind,

my heart, and my life.

Remove the have nots,

the can nots, and the do nots,

that I have in my mind.

Erase the will nots,

may nots,

might nots that may find

a home in my heart.

Release me from the could nots

would nots and 

should nots that obstruct my life.

And most of all

 Dear God

I ask that you remove from my mind,

my heart, my life, all the am nots 

that I have allowed to hold me back,

especially the thoughts

that”I am not good enough“.

Amen.
