Divine Discovery


Leaves jaywalking across the street; only to hide from one another against the soul of a passerby.  

The raindrops race to their divine destination delivering a droplet of hope to smallest of seed.

A rumbling avalanche chases it's echo. A storm grumbles & complains as it is asked to leave that corner of the sky.
The leaves clap their hands & the meadows bow low.
It is the goodnight kiss of nature.
Trees submit to the calmness from within their branches
as the storm subsides.
The evening sun gives one last look upon the edge of the sky
as she slips out for a night on the town.
              The night's sky is dressed in her black dress that 
glistens with wonderment.
All eyes are upon her as she makes her entranceway to
 midnight's grandest ballroom.
 Nature has tucked her youth under the blanket of restfulness. 
           The sun silently enters through morning's open door
              then gently folds back the cover from another day.

Meanwhile the leaves are waiting for another breeze
               to escort them across a path.
The rain is preparing for another new life to begin.

                                                                                                                        The trees have stretched their arms;
                   the meadow awaits for her turn to
                                                      embrace the wind.

Your invitation to eternal life is now.
Look upon the grandeur of God's gift alive in His creation.

Behold, the Prince of Peace will return to escort His Bride home.
Will you attend?  Are you aware of His message in all of Nature?
He loves you.
The festivities begin the moment you accept His personal invite.  
RSVP         Eternity awaits.....

TLC for Jackie...

Today as I was driving to a client's home, I noticed a dog that had been recently struck by a car struggling to get up as it lay on the side of the road. My heart broke. I went passed & turned back to see how to best help this little creature. A female Jack Russell terrier, about 6 years old, looked up at me in desperation.  I was able to cradle her in my arms, spoke gentle reassuring words to her & noticed the dog's eyes were responsive as I held her;  it was like she understood that someone had come to help. I prayed that she would be ok. Although there was a little blood in the nose & eye, she appeared to be comfortable being held close.

As I approached the closest home's front door the person who open their door to me told me the dog belonged to the neighbor across the highway. She stated that she had helped them fix their fence so the dog would stop leaving the yard. Her words of disappointment in the lack of concern from the owners towards their pet was obvious. The owners could care less & what she feared would happen had.  I thanked her & went to see the owners who  took the dog inside with little intention of additional care to its wellbeing.  Now all I could do was pray for the little pup that could not speak for herself as to what hurt. ( My goodness people...take the little one to the vet. Be responsible.) I waited in my car for a while then went to inquire of the dog's name & condition. The woman who had taken the dog from my arms stated that the dog was eating ok & that her daughter was calling the vet.  My schedule meant I had to leave...there was nothing else I could do. 'God please take care of your little Jackie & thank You that I could give her a little TLC in her despair. '
At this time I do not know what happen to Jackie.  But in that brief moment when I lifted her from the road in my arms, I knew it was part of God's plan for our lives. God had me there for her.
When I returned home,  I immediately embraced my dog, Gizmo & I cried.  He knew my heart was tender at this time.  Everyone has a purpose.  Today God showed me one of mine...I had held her in my arms, close to my heart. For that time, she knew she was cared for. Feel better soon, Jackie.

The Joy of Being

When we stop and breathe in the air around us, we do more than just fill our lungs. We fill the areas of our lives that are not complete. This can be accomplished by appreciating the fragrance of fresh linens, or the aroma from a flowers first opening to the world. Truly, a breath of fresh air does one good.

Another a robin as it looks for a fresh worm. All the senses bestowed upon it are awake and alert. The focus is flawless; the goal set. Must find food. Simple, right? Yes, it is. Knowing what your purpose is in the moment is essential. Do you know yours?

When we simply set our minds 'on' enjoying the moment we begin being our true selves 'in' that moment. Take a deep breath. Exhale. Repeat. Not much thought in this on a regular basis but when given attention, it is noted as part of the Joys of Being. Find the next moment & exist to your highest level of you.
Nice, isn't it. :)

The Size Of Love

How big is your love?
How much value do you weigh towards the affections of your heart?
Is there a way to measure the value of true love that is unconditionally given? It’s true, when that love first enters your heart, you will never be the same.

I am a nature lover. I like the antics of little squirrels, chipmunks, you know- those who scamper across the ground in pursuit of happiness & maybe a little dinner.

And then there are the home pets…the puppies, kittens, bunnies & the like. Their nuzzlings of affection when snuggling against their very own human surely wiggles its way into the human hearts with very little effort.

When you need to experience the tenderness and the sensitivity of a heart, take a walk in the park, or embrace your pet in your arms. Be still. Watch the reaction they have to the attention you give. Whether you are an observer of their life or the shoulder they rest their head upon, you will discover unconditional affection.

How do you measure that? I don’t know. All I know is it’s a valuable shared visit of time to be respected, embraced & folded in to a beautiful page in your book of living. Enjoy.

Sticks & Stones...

Never attack or alienate someone because they don't view their life successes or failures as you do. It is their life- they are the only one with the ‘right’ to decide how they live it. No one has assigned you responsible for changing them to fit a preconceived expectation you have carried on their behalf.
Lay it down. Let it go!  

They have created their own levels of success, carry different values  of importance & dreamed dreams that you will never know; many that will forever elude you. Therefore, don't presume that you have the right to criticize them. Is this belittling attempt done with the purpose of justifying your own lack of pursuits?  Rather- build another up with the bricks of believing in their talents rather than trying to bury their ambitions under the dirt of demeaning. 
Remember-it’s not all about you.
For when people cast another stone upon those who they judge please be sure to not drop that ‘better than you’ boulder upon their own foot.   Be the difference.
Pray for those who judge your short-comings differently than they do their own.
