200 Words Poem of Thanks
may you the breath of life flow through you and in me.
may you greet each days joys and sorrows with openness and courage.
I offer deep gratitude for our lives connecting through words, and may
my words speak to the inner rooms of your heart.
may the connecting of heart to heart stir within you the deep divine wisdom
everyday is a day, we can discard and uncover the mystery hidden within.
may your experiences open your heart to keep reaching out, despite life’s sorrows.
each moment of joy and each moment of suffering is a great teacher,
if we have hearts open to receive that gift.
though we be strangers, I am grateful for life weaving our lives together through the gift of sharing our stories.
word are sometimes used so carelessly, but they have so much power.
words have the power to name, shape, and form our thoughts and feelings.
words have the power to create and to destroy, so may we use them wisely.
I hope my words speak into the heart of at least one person, and help them discover, uncover, and discard; a process that is ongoing till we take our last breath.
Grateful for getting through first year of post divorce; walking through litigation over custody; retaining my sanity through it all…relatively; being a dad to my little girl and putting her first; spiritual principles that guide my life; laughter, tears and all the things in between; for family and friends that trudged with me through the lows and highs of this year.
I am grateful for the breath of life coursing through me, and grateful I can wake up and be grateful. There was a time where I woke up hating life, and glad those dark days are behind me.
Poem: New Year
another year come and gone
new year to embrace change
The day before something special is also special, so I wanted to wish all of you Merry Christmas for those of you that celebrate Christmas. For those of you who do not celebrate Christmas, I hope you still enjoy the day off as a holiday. I want to thank fellow bloggers on word press, who have been reading and supporting my writing this past year, and I also want to thank new readers who have been liking and commenting these past few months. I am grateful that I chose to keep writing and sharing, and that all of you have taken the time to share with me. May God bless you and keep you safe this holiday season. Peace be with you.
Each moment is a gift
a promise of another day
