Never Give Up

I have words today. My heart is heavy while my soul still sings of hope for all. I pray you are all well and stay that way. If you stop over please leave some words of encouragement for others in the comments. I love and appreciate you all..

Don’t worry….

Love Is All Around

My thoughts today over at the new place. I hope you have a moment to follow me there. Love is All Around

Why Can’t It Be So…

This has been my favorite holiday song for many years. While not a traditional hymn, I feel it speaks to the Spirit of Christmas and the message of the Messiah in the most profound sense. Most people are filled with a sense of wonder, forgiveness, generosity and hope at this time of year. Why should our hearts and minds abandon such truths once the music stops, the decorations come down and the world returns to its spinning, busy, hectic routine? Elvis sang it best…

 

Why can’t every day be like Christmas? Peace and Love be with you today and every day in the coming year. If you can’t find such peace, then be that peace.

Love and Light always,

Cheryl

Reflections of My Life

DE24BC76-34D7-4AD6-AB49-E2963E018C2C

Will I, when faced with life’s review,

be content to watch my passage?

Will I be proud, ashamed

to see my name

on that eternal movie screen?

Life, indeed a stage, and each must

play a role with no script in hand.

Do we follow our cues

for the paths we choose

or boldly improvise?

I hope with constant vigilance

to owe such little recompense

that I may revel in the rest

as I lay aside my script

with its pages worn and ripped

to bask in brilliant Light

in sweet repose.

I shall return the key

until it’s time for me

to succumb to the seduction

of another huge production

that will give me second chances

and with no backward glances,

find new glory in the spotlight-

Center stage.

This song was a favorite of mine in Jr High School. I still love it though it is almost never played in oldies venues.
Love and Light and happy #Free48 to everyone!

You put your right foot in, you take your right foot out…

(We used to go to the roller rink every Friday night when I was in Jr High and High School. This little ditty was on a cycle about every hour or so during our rink sessions. It’s so much more fun trying to do it on roller skates! 😂)

Old man, take a look at my life,

I’m a lot like you were…..

Seeing these moss- bearded ancient trees brought to mind an old favorite song of mine. You are amazing, Mr Young.
