In Memory of Sarah a Dear Friend

An Ode To Sarah Thompson
Look for me in Rainbows

Time for me to go now, I won’t say goodbye;
Look for me in rainbows, way up in the sky.
In the morning sunrise when all the world is new,
Just look for me and love me, as you know I loved you.

Time for me to leave you, I won’t say goodbye;
Look for me in rainbows, high up in the sky.
In the evening sunset, when all the world is through,
Just look for me and love me, and I’ll be close to you.

It won’t be forever, the day will come and then
My loving arms will hold you, when we meet again.

Time for us to part now, we won’t say goodbye;
Look for me in rainbows, shining in the sky.
Every waking moment, and all your whole life through
Just look for me and love me, as you know I loved you.

Just wish me to be near you,
And I’ll be there with you.

Music and lyrics: Conn Bernard (1990). Vicki Brown

An Angel Poem

Slovenčina: Anjel English: Angel

This beautiful angel poem describes in a small way, how it feels to be guided by angels.

The Angels May angels rest beside your door,
May you hear their voices sing.
May you feel their loving care for you,
May you hear their peace bells ring.
May angels always care for you,
And not let you trip and fall,
May they bear you up on angel’s wings,
May they keep you standing tall.
May they whisper wisdom in your ear,
May they touch you when you need,
May they remove from you each trace of fear,
May they keep you from feeling greed.
May they fill you with their presence,
May they show you love untold,
May they always stand beside you
And make you ever bold.
May they teach you what you need to know
About life here and here-after.
May they fill you always with their love
And give you the gift of laughter

Recipe for Christmas All Year Long

Take a heap of child-like wonder
That opens up our eyes
To the unexpected gifts in life—
Each day a sweet surprise.Mix in fond appreciation
For the people whom we know;
Like festive Christmas candles,
Each one has a special glow.Add some giggles and some laughter,
A dash of Christmas food,
(Amazing how a piece of pie
Improves our attitude!)Stir it all with human kindness;
Wrap it up in love and peace,
Decorate with optimism, and
Our joy will never cease.If we use this healthy recipe,
We know we will remember
To be in the Christmas spirit,
Even when it’s not December.By Joanna Fuchs 

Heaven’s Grocery Store

17 11 2011

Heaven’s Grocery Store
As I walked down life’s highway, feeling weary and sore
I came upon a sign that said ‘Heaven’s Grocery Store’
When I drew a little closer, the doors opened wide
And before I knew it, I found myself inside

I saw a host of angels – they were standing everywhere
One handed me a basket and said “My child, shop with care
Everything you ever need is in this Grocery Store
And what you cannot carry, you can just come back for more”

First I got some Patience, then Love in the same row,
Further down the aisle, some Understanding and Inner Glow
I found a box of Wisdom, and Faith a bag or two
And Charity, of course, because that is needed too.

I couldn’t miss the Holy Spirit, which was all over the place
And then some Strength and Courage, to help me run this race
My basketful was growing, but there had to be some space
For that necessity of living, a large amount of Grace.

I then chose Salvation, for Salvation was for free.
I tried to get enough of it, for my friends and me.
Then I headed for the checkout, to settle up my bill
For I thought I’d got everything, to do the Master’s Will.

As I turned back up the aisle, I saw Prayer and put it in
For I knew that when I left here, that I’d soon need help again
Peace and Joy were plentiful, the last things on the shelf
Song and Praise were hanging near, and so I helped myself.

When I said to the Angel, “Tell me what I owe?”
He just smiled and said “Share them everywhere you go”
Again I asked, “Really now, how much do I owe?”
“My child” he said “God paid your bill a long long time ago”

Our Deepest Fear

17 10 2011
It Is Our Light

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant,
gorgeous, talented, fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God.

Your playing small does not serve the world.

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.

We are all meant to shine, as children do.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is
within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously
give other people permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.

Children of the earth hear our call
We are calling you to our aid
The time has come to stand and fight
and bring this earth back to the light

Darkness slowly covers the land
We ask you now to come and stand
United in our holy quest
and bring the earth back to the light

With your help and our guidance
the light will come and remain forever
Walk tall and be happy
Send light and love to all

With joy in your hearts
and friendship to all
we will be victorious
Just hear our call

A Thanksgiving Prayer

9 10 2011

A Thanksgiving Prayer

For forests tall and oceans deep
For canyons wide and mountains steep
For sunset skies of pink and gold
For every sunrise we behold

For Winter’s snow and springtime’s thaw
For Summer’s warmth and Autumn’s awe
For roofs that keep the rain away
For walls that hold it all at bay

For work that puts food on the table
For health and rest to keep us able
For friends and family around us
For years to come, may they surround us

For soldiers fighting for our peace
For days to come when wars may cease
For hope, so burdens won’t enslave us
For thy forgiveness which will save us

For feast, and those with whom we share it
For loving hands that did prepare it
For all that makes this life worth living
We take this time on this Thanksgiving

To bow our heads and bend a knee
And pause to look around and see
For all that was, is, and shall be
We have none to thank, Oh Lord, but thee.
