“Those who bring sunshine into the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves.”
~ James M. Barrie
Beautiful music is the art of the prophets
that can calm the agitations of the soul;
it is one of the most magnificent
and delightful presents God has given us.
Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation,
and in sure dwellings and in quiet resting places
Great peace have those who love Your law,
And nothing causes them to stumble.
Above all else, know this:
Be prepared at all times for the gifts of God and be ready to give than we are to receive.
German Philosopher, Born 1260
His perfect plan!
Why not share with the world the way it is and tell them my feelings about my cat,
and how I played with my kids,
and how addicted to Christmas time I am,
and the smell of pine needles and hearing my kids laugh.
I wish I could write as mysterious as a cat.
~Edgar Allan Poe
An animal’s eyes have the power to speak a great language.
Life Is No Bed of Roses
Poet: John McLeod, © 2003
Life is no bed of roses
For roses have thorns, you see,
But handling with care and balance
Will protect from injury.
All gardens have seasons of beauty
Where the flowers of our living grow
With colours and shapes aplenty
Sweet fragrance to bestow.
Life’s flowers need careful tending
For all life needs sun and rain,
And Love and Faith unending
For Hope to flower again!
Happy New Year 2015!
