that delicious moment
when you don’t know how it’ll happen
and have no idea how things will play out
as you realize you can do nothing about it
you know who does
and your soul is filled with peace!

How do you define compassionate living? It just may be broader
than you have considered . . .
– Terry Tempest Williams –
Weight, measure, value . . . simple concepts? Not really!
When I was very young, my dad offered me a dollar at the fair. I was disappointed. I heard coins jingling in his pocket! Why would I want a piece of paper, I thought, coins were heavier so that must be more . . and better! Silly little me! Not always! How do we decide value throughout our daily lives?
What do you value the most? Being an adult, I know 25 pennies weigh more than a dollar but have less value, but this doesn’t mean I always get the right answer when I answer the question just posed here.
WHAT DO YOU VALUE MOST? The answer lies in your HEART!
Your love fills my soul
And your peace
Is like nothing I could imagine.
This morning I woke with a start,
I stopped to think
And stumbled off the path.
My fear-frozen heart beat too fast
And my mind drew me
In another direction
But not a good one.
I breathed deeply,
I called out to you,
And you showed me the map
Leading me back to you.
The peace in my soul
Softly comforted me.
Ready for a new day
Filled with wonder,
Filled with you.
