The Game of Life
Life is a wonderful game
Game that has its rules
Rules to understand
Understand and follow
Follow each day of life
Life given to me and you
You are in control of the play
Play each move with care
Care from the heart
Heart that is full of love
Love the present moment
Moment that is precious and dear.
A Walk Along the Beach
Gazing down as I walk along the beach
Feeling the warmth of the sand upon my feet;
The sun rises out over the ocean waves
My body awakens to the feel of its radiant heat.
Each and every step I go I breathe the salty air
With glorious smells of seaweed that lay down beneath me;
The gentle waves wash ashore collections of debris and matter
So interesting I stop to take notice at the piles left by the sea.
Trying to hide from the dangers that are present
A lonely sand dollar quietly rests upon the sand;
An amazing creature created from the energy of the sea
Gently I lift it and place it upon the palm of my hand.
Perfectly formed yet so very delicate by nature
I smile sweetly as this was such a great find;
It makes me happy and brings positive thoughts to my brain
For God had given me this gift to enjoy on his dime.
Gently I lift the sand dollar placing it back in the sea
It has brought such happiness to the start of my day;
Watching its movement as it settles back into the sand
A wave flows in from yonder and washes it away.
Touch of Friendship
Heavenly is a soft touch.
Touch that reaches the inner being.
Being present with this moment in time.
Time so precious and special.
Special to be treated, so different than others.
Others remembered from the distant past.
Past has gone and can never come back.
Back to the present to engage in this friendship.
Friendship not to be taken for granted.
Granted are we for this moment of the day.
Day in life that blossoms.
Blossoms unfolding to this glorious beauty.
Reflections of Nature
Reflection of beauty that nature provides
Brings amazing energy to my soul;
How perfect the pallet of colors there are
I gaze at its pattern about to unfold.
Simplicity of the picture before my eyes
Such peaceful energy it creates in me;
There is nothing more pleasant in my life
Than the presented view I can see.
Nature’s brush and technique are truly unique
Stitched carefully together with fine thread;
Let the beauty of the moment open my heart
And speak to my thoughts in my head.
For I only seek what truly is good to discover
As I stay focused on the what is resilient;
Enjoying this time that has been given to me
Blessed I am for this present moment.
Blossoms of Beauty
Start your day with a prayer
Giving thanks to the morning light;
The gift of this moment
Should be your delight.
Wake up and be happy
Hum a tune to this glorious time;
Take a breath and smile
As you rise and shine.
Embrace each new moment today
Cherish it with your heart;
Blessings are upon you as always
Take notice of the day’s fine art.
Blossoms of Life
Spring blossoms with blessings of beauty.
Beauty that grows upon the limbs of a tree.
Tree that extends its branches to all.
All who welcome a vibrant life.
Life so sweet, it is a gift for today.
Today awaken to the morning light.
Light your soul with glory and grace.
Grace for this moment for you to enjoy.
Wonderful Beautiful Thoughts
Every minute of every day thoughts flow into your consciousness. Good thoughts that make you happy and those you wish could disappear. Sometimes the negative thinking just keeps repeating itself over and over again. You just want it gone forever. How? Did you know you can be in control of your thinking?
Recently I learned a technique that helps to dissolve unwanted thoughts. When an unwelcome message appears in my thinking, I label it “thought”. This creates a place holder for the message, allowing the negative thought to dissipate so that the mind can then process the next thought. Consequently, I do not dwell on the negative thought over and over again in my mind.
I encourage you to try this technique. I truly want positive thinking in my life. Don’t you?
