AUTHENTICITY

April 20, 2018

To repeat another’s words

rather than my own

is the same

as wearing a borrowed hat,

or chasing someone else’s dream.

In order to change the world

for the better

I must be authentic

to do my part.

I am a unique creation of the Most High!

His plan .. . His gifts . . .are best.

Among Weeds and Thorns

January 10, 2018

Digital Camera

When the garden is filled with weeds

Yet one stubborn flower

Finds the strength to grow,

Am I to frown

Because it is the only one?

Is it not a very welcomed blessing?

Surely its beauty

Nourishes my hungry soul

Giving me the strength

To tackle the overgrowth

Of opposition

Not unlike the single

Blooming rose

Basking in the midst

Of thorns;

Hope

Of a coming new season!

STAND AGAINST SAVAGE BEHAVIOR!

July 9, 2017

We live in a world where savage behavior is considered cool and songs, books, movies, Ebooks, posters, plays, and more make the message clear and the performers wealthy for displaying acts of savagery while acts of kindness have ACTUALLY been known to inspire it!  KIND FOLKS ARE FREQUENT VICTIMS!

 

THIS MUST CHANGE!  LET’S BEGIN TODAY!  

WORLD PEACE BEGINS WITH YOU!  SHARE THIS MESSAGE!

My mind can only know so much.

It is only when my heart and soul are fed

that I am forever changed.

Blessed By Indifference

March 3, 2017

Warm thoughts

on a frigid day

do not raise the temperature.

But instead,

make me indifferent to it!
