It’s been awhile since a poem has composed itself in my mind and with never knowing what the next day will bring in this world of uncertainty, here is Just For Today:
Just for today…
may your sun shine a little brighter,
may your pain be less severe
may your eyes behold the beautiful
may sweet sounds fill your ear
may your thoughts be full of gladness
may good things come your way
may your heart be filled with love and peace
just for today.
I can’t help thinking that this is a wee bit of sound advice. Those of us who have experienced the taking back will understand. Happy Monday.
It goes without saying that I am a hopeless romantic and always have been. Hearing about wedding anniversaries of fifty, sixty and even seventy years can turn my heart to mush. Likewise, stories of couples meeting, falling in love and marrying in their eighties and nineties makes my heart even mushier. I’ve been told that in both types of these relationships it’s the little things that matter. Here is a song from 1953 that says it all, but besides the romanticism of the song, it speaks of the need for the human touch which many of us are lacking at this time. Happy Saturday.
Look what I found while looking up more hugging images. These pictures suit the title of this post, don’t you think? Happy Wednesday.
This is an all time favorite song of mine because it gives joy, is uplifting, and speaks my mind. Happy Sunday.
Saturdays come and go. Some are really good and some, not so. Whatever you have planned for your Saturday, whether coming or going, I pray that your day will be pleasant, energizing and full of love. Happy Saturday.
The best part of caring is sharing. Here is one of my great-granddaughters sharing a cookie with me on a recent visit. What makes this picture so special is that I had done the same thing with her mother with a french fry thirty-six years ago. Do your share of sharing today. Happy Saturday.
There is always so much to be thankful for but do we always remember to give thanks? Today I am thankful for spending quality time with family for the past few days, seeing some of my precious great-grandchildren, good food, companionship, conversation, seeing selflessness in action and lots of hugs. I am renewed, restored and looking forward to worship and fellowship as I now head out to Sunday services and more opportunity for saying thank you. Happy Sunday.
This is a repeat of a 2015 post because there are some younger people who need to hear it today (maybe some older also).
Act in the way that is true to your intelligence and beliefs.
Remember that no one can rob you of your power unless you allow them to do so.
Stand tall and face indignity with dignity, and indecency with decency.
Look truth in the face and use it to overcome deceit.
Remember the respect you have for yourself and those you love, and let no one rob you of that respect.
Always use your inner strength to walk away from a bad situation, and where possible take someone with you who needs to lean on your strength until they discover their own.
Remember that you are loved dearly by those who matter. Love yourself just as dearly, always.
