I'm falling in love....

...with words.

I am not a writer....never have been - that's why I struggle with
posting here.  (and I've often wondered what ever possessed me
to start this blog.)

But lately, I have been finding writings on the www that have
rocked my world.  First on Pinterest, I saw this.....

Seduce my mind and you can have my body,
Find my soul and I'm yours forever.
~ by Anonymous ~


And then I regularly read Mel here and Debbie here.   And this is just 
a little snippet from Rachel Snyder 
...look in your mirror!
you are the river of love’s tenderness
from your mouth springs the breath
you never know, you may be holding
the heart of the world in your very hand
offering sustenance everlasting
in a single crumb of sweet compassion
 

All of these women (and too many more to list) are pure magic....to
be able to take everyday thoughts, spin them in to gold and send them
out to touch our hearts.  Such a gift to share with the world....

I will keep reading and taking notes....perhaps one day, I too will be
able to share such magic!

Exactly!

Capricorn

December 22 - January 19

It’s likely that you’re feeling ready for a change, Capricorn. It isn’t that you’re dissatisfied with your job or environment, rather that your mind is hungry for new challenges. You may be able to satisfy this hunger by taking on more responsibility at work or signing up to attend some evening classes after work. Any new and different activity will give your mind the stimulation it craves.

Choose Joy!


Yesterday was not a good day....I guess I was feeling the weather:
wet, dreary and cold.  So, when I read that the daily prompt for our
Book of Days was "What brings you joy?"  I had a hard time getting
to that place. 

But, in the interest of playing along, in the hopes of changing my mood,
I thought about joy.....what it is and where I find it.   My joy springs from
love....mostly for my family and friends.  Those who have my heart are
more precious than gold to me  They are truly my life's blood.

I also love Nature.  It is where my soul connects to God...and where I find the
answers to my questions.    Nature brings me peace, where I find my truth
about who I truly am. 

I am a simple woman - I don't need a lot of flash in my life.  I love the natural,
the real.....and knowing that brings me tremendous joy!!
