Wild Roses

20160602_161538

In a way we are like wild roses, never perfect, frayed

around the edges, appearing out of nowhere yet always filled

with a beauty that belongs uniquely to us – making our world

incredibly beautiful, and often encouraging people

we don’t even know.

       

Did you ever wonder why we were all made so different, and yet the same?

Loving Mercy

There’s never been a better time to care about people

to love mercy, to help the poor, to walk

in peace, being a reflection

of the One

who made us.

            

Now is the time.

Give a Blessing This Week!

Now you might wonder, did I read that right? You want me to give a blessing??? Yes, there are many ways we can be a positive force. Of course, there may be friends that are going through a tough time, and we can speak encouraging words! Donating funds can be another way of giving.

But we can also create positive, and life giving beauty. With our poetry, our paintings, and our photography, we can actually lift each other’s spirits.

So be blessed, have fun, and share the light! Have a great week!

One Single Rose

If one single rose has the power to confirm our calling

to draw us in, towards the love we were intended to share

then the power of a bouquet has the strength

to seal the kiss – of eternity

in our hearts.

The Cup of Encouragement

In ancient times, angels offered a cup of water to weary travelers

in desert mountains, to quench their thirst.

Today we have many deserts draining us

places and times desperate,

needing an angel to give us

just a glimpse

of hope.

     

And we can offer the cup.

Who will you

encourage

today?

The Dawning

As the light of compassion dawns in our hearts

filling us with light, we realize

loving nature is only half

the mission.

     

The far greater calling, is loving the people of earth

showing them, in tangible ways

they are accepted.

      

Have you shared your light?
