๐Ÿ’•Por lo que el รกrbol tiene de florido…โœจ๐ŸŒณ

Standard

la vida comprendida
โœจSi para recobrar lo recobrado
debรญ perder primero lo perdido,
si para conseguir lo conseguido
tuve que soportar lo soportado,

si para estar ahora enamorado
fue menester haber estado herido,
tengo por bien sufrido lo sufrido,
tengo por bien llorado lo llorado.

Porque despuรฉs de todo he comprobado
que no se goza bien de lo gozado
sino despuรฉs de haberlo padecido.

Porque despuรฉs de todo he comprendido
por lo que el รกrbol tiene de florido
vive de lo que tiene sepultado.
Soneto de: Francisco Luis Bernรกrdez

A Trial Run…

Standard

Bless the Lord, all creatures,
everywhere in God’s domain.
Bless the Lord, my soul!
– Psalm 103:22

Marina del Rey 1112014

Our earthly journey
Is just a trial run.
Sometimes it’s hard
Sometimes it’s fun.

But whatever the case
Our God makes it plain.
The world is just part
Of His vast domain.

Each step we journey
Must focus on love
With thoughts of our God
Who reigns up above.

And on our journey
As we work and play,
It’s just a trial run
Toward Heaven someday.
~Edna Massimilla

Itโ€™s Fine Today…

Standard

Spring ends and Summerย begins on June 20, 21, 22 ย in the Northern Hemisphere.
Trees and shrubs are often at their freshest, and there are more flowers duringย June than at any other time.ย 

 

Itโ€™s Fine Today

Sure, this world is full of trouble-
I ainโ€™t said it ainโ€™t.
Lord, Iโ€™ve had enough and double
Reason for complaint;
Rain and storm have come to fret me,
Skies are often gray;
Thorns and brambles have beset me
On the road โ€“ but say,
Ainโ€™t it fine today?

Whatโ€™s the use of always weepinโ€™,
Making trouble last?
Whatโ€™s the use of always keepinโ€™
Thinkinโ€™ of the past?
Each must have his tribulation –
Water with his wine;
Life, it ainโ€™t no celebration,
Trouble? โ€“ Iโ€™ve had mine –
But today is fine!

Itโ€™s today that I am livinโ€™,
Not a month ago.
Havinโ€™; losinโ€™; takinโ€™; givinโ€™;
As time wills it so.
Yesterday a cloud of sorrow
Fell across the way,
It may rain again tomorrow,
It may rain โ€“ but say,
Ainโ€™t it fine today?
