self talk

By Queen Anne’s gate I met my fate.
Would I thrive or simply survive?
Would I receive hope or simply cope?
Could I believe what I would receive?
In Queen Anne’s meadow I met a fellow.
He heard me pray and seemed to say;
“Do you want to remain or should you be slain?”
I could not decide since I had no pride.
On Queen Anne’s road I met a toad.
He knew my life had been one of strife.
He told me that to my prayer God gave a nod.
At Queen Anne’s gate keep walking straight.

life is full of lessons if we pay attention

The earth greens.
The skies clear.
My heart still weeps.
Families heal.
Friends linger.
My soul still cries out.
The sun shines.
The air freshens.
My spirit still cowers.
The words are present.
The world praises.
My mind still wanders.

Praise God from whom all blessings flow!

God abides
where love resides.
God's best
is my sweet rest
God's grace
I will never erase
God is always the source
along life's course

I can

I can hold it together
As long as God holds me
I can survive my own life expectancy
As long as God forgives me
I can do greater things
As long God blesses me
I can be of good cheer and gratitude
Because God lives in me

beauty and dreams



Dreams can come true.
Never stop.
Live today.
Not yesterday.
Not tomorrow.
Live today.

 recreate it
over and over...
you are the keeper of all your own memories
realize this
every moment
every breath
