Accept the Path You have Taken
Accept the path you have taken
For that is the road you have chosen;
The path may not be perfect
Accept that it may stir some emotion.
Accept the moment that is given
For that is all you can control;
The moment may not be as you expected
Accept it down deep in your soul.
Accept the body you live in
For that is what you have molded;
The look may not be what quite you wanted
Accept that your wonderful life has unfolded.
Accept all that has been given to you
For this is what you have unconsciously asked for;
Be thankful for all that has come your way
Accept these gifts as they should not be ignored.
Tis Christmas Day full of good memories
Of all the wonderful times that have past;
With the special gifts from loved ones
And thoughts that will forever last.
The tree is brilliantly lit with glow
With the wrapped presents down under;
Patiently awaiting to be opened
In awe of this Christmas season wonder.
A fire warms the chilly room
With dancing flames that endlessly glow;
Waiting for people to gather
To celebrate with laughter and a HOHO.
Snow gently falls from the sky
Blanketing the ground with white;
Nature’s gift to cleanse the soul
And offer this gift of light.
Blessings shine upon a glorious day
As we celebrate it with a loved one;
The future is bright in this warm winter light
For all the New Year days yet to come.
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.
Have you said a blessing today, for the beauty that surrounds you? Have you said a blessing today for the life you have been given? And, have you said a blessing today for the love that comes your way? Think about all those daily events that go unnoticed as we trudge through the day.
Stop and take a snapshot of this moment. Focus your eyes on your surroundings. Smell the air that flows into your nostrils. Listen to the sweet sounds that fall upon your ear. Taste the flavors that linger in your mouth. Hold your hand to your heart and feel its beat. Notice how you feel.
A blessing each day nourishes your soul. Focus your day with the gifts that surround you. It is a beautiful day in your life.
