A Gratitude Attitude

A Life Of Love, Happiness and Joy

Fasting For Lent

( Pope Francis )

It would be wonderful to remember to be this this kind of person every day

Fast from hurting words, and say kind words.

Fast from sadness, and be filled with gratitude.

Fast from anger, and be filled with patience.

Fast from pessimism, and be filled with hope.

Fast from worries, and trust in God.

Fast from complaints, and contemplate simplicity.

Fast from pressure, and be prayerful.

Fast from bitterness, and fill our hearts with joy.

Fast from selfishness, and be compassionate towards others.

Fast from grudges, and be reconciled

Fast from words and be silent so we can HEAR.

In the words of Pope Francis Lent 2017.

Happy Hearts

Caring Christmas

Christmas isn’t all about candy canes,

nor about Christmas lights aglow.

Nor is it about Santa, ho! ho! ho!

It’s really about the Hearts we touch

and the care we show.


Wishing you a wonderful Christmas!

May you receive the gift of hope,

that this season brings;

May you celebrate faith

in whatever circumstance you are in;

Share joy with others

all of the time;

And live with love in your heart 

as Jesus did.

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!

Loving Life and Laughter

A loving Legend

Legends say that the hummingbirds float free.

They carry our hopes for love, joy, and celebration.

The hummingbird’s delicate grace reminds us that

life is rich, beauty is everywhere, and every 

personal connection has meaning,

and that laughter is life’s sweetest creation.

We need to find beauty in all things we see 

… most of all in nature and people we meet.

 We need to share the beauty in ourselves 

in every connection we make with others.

Life is definitely rich  and it’s ours for the taking.
