Do You Believe It?


In Soul Stories, a book by Gary Zuvak, he wrote, among other things, “Believe that when you ask a question you always get an answer.” I don’t know why, but the question I asked was, “Where am I from?”

I was led to a meditation site online from a note I had taken on a television program a few nights earlier. The meditation that day was titled “Home”. It suggested that I am from another dimension, one of peace, and light, and silence. This explains my love of silence…I bask in it when stillness seems to envelop me from time to time.

At different times in prior years I had written poems, one titled,” A New Dimension” where becoming aware of the things we usually ignore opens our eyes to what’s around us. “The Journey” depicts a life of love and serenity.

To my mind, heaven is another dimension and perfectly fits the description above…love and serenity.

If I had ignored the prompting to take a note from a television program, I would not have been aware of the online meditation that gave me a fairly apt description of “where I am from”.

I attribute the inspiration for “The Journey” to a surgeon who many years ago released me from hospital with these words, “Live, love, and be happy.” And this is precisely my life today.

My Smile Room


On Wednesday I acquired a new wall hanging. It was displayed on the doorstep of a lovely shop in Bowmanville, On. and I was drawn to it immediately. It made me smile.

In the room where I hung it are photos of me with each of my daughters and sons. There is also a musical angel figurine which my youngest daughter gave me for Christmas many years ago. Along with these favorite items is an angel clock, (there is a different angel at every hour).

This newest acquisition is already a favorite and I have named it The Painted Pony. It will be my new focus for meditation.

This room is my favorite in the whole house as it’s where all my writing occurs, where keepsakes are kept, where nature beckons just outside sliding doors and where my daily quiet time with God takes place.  In other words it’s my smile room. Do you have one?

Though Your Heart is Breaking


Here is a song that carried me through some very difficult times in my life and I know of many people at this very moment who are living this song right now including myself. Smile was composed by Charlie Chaplin in 1936 with lyrics added in 1954 when Nat King Cole recorded it. It’s a beautiful song with a beautiful message…another lesson in life.

She asks too little and labors too long, but I can’t help thinking…

in the eyes of God, she’s doing just fine.

~

Her hospice background and the loss of a son enable her to talk with others about this death and dying that we so often fear. She holds others in her heart, talks to them on the phone, crying with them as they share their grieving heart and somehow, helps them to cope.

She is the last of her family for her brothers and parents are all gone. She has her mountain of grief, yet reaches out to others to share their grief with her…she listens, she understands. She offers an understanding heart and a memory bear to hold and hug as they remember, through their tears, their loved one.

Maybe, she asks too little and labors too long, but I can’t help thinking…

in the eyes…
