of things I’ve left behind.
the spirit still lives on,
the love is here to stay.
to restore what used to be,…
like footprints in the sand
they’ve left their mark on me.
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.
The Good Shepherd
This is such a beautiful story I took from last week’s church newsletter when we were celebrating the feast of ” The Good Shepherd”
The Knots prayer………
the can nots, and the do nots,
Release me from the could nots
should nots that obstruct my life.
I ask that you remove from my mind,
my heart, my life, all the am nots
that I have allowed to hold me back,
that”I am not good enough“.
The gifts I’d leave beneath your tree
Aren’t those that you could touch or see.
Not wrapped in Christmas paper gay
But…. gifts to bless you everyday.
The gift of friendship warm and true
Is one that I would leave for you.
Good health and happiness and cheer,
To keep you smiling all the year.
The gift of peace that comes from God,
With prayers to guide each path you trod.
And when your heart has lost it’s song
The gift of hope to cheer you on.
To Nurture a Garden:
is to not just to feed the body.……
…….but feed the soul as well.
