We are all Buds of life

As the buds of spring emerge.  We are reminded of a chance for new beginnings as we journey thru natures world of life, rebirth and death.



For many,  their essence lays deep within their roots.



   A Blackness may descend around them.



They feel only the coldness of the world.  So they curl into a ball and disappear for while.

But the warmth of God’s hand is always there to reach out.



Bringing new light pulling the essence back up from our roots.



We explode with the beauty of life around us .



But sometimes in the world exists a disease and the beauty of what was is taken from us.



We struggle…Some survive to awake each day trying to live again.

Some return from there dark time to live with the light of God in them.



Some can no longer live.



But are taken to where the warmth of Gods hand will enable them to live for all eternity.



We are all buds of life…. 

Weather Healthy, Diseased or Dyeing. 



Reach for the light of love and your lives will always bloom weather here or beyond.



The light of God’s love continues to bring new buds of life……

Hope your life is budding with love

Have a Happy Easter

Good Morning…    Good  Afternoon…  Good Night…

Whatever it is to you

Simply a Sunday Sunset 9 with the Fiery of a Saturday Sunrise


If you can sit at set of sun
And count the deeds you have done
And counting find
One self denial act, one word

That ease the heart of him that heard
One glance most kind,
Which fell like sunshine where he went,
then you may count that day well spent.
-Robert Browning-

Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.  Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can.  Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high spirit to be cumbered with you old nonsense.  This day is all that is good and fair.  It is too dear, with its hopes and invitations, to waste a moment on the yesterdays.
-Ralph Waldo Everson-

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

Hope is not the closing of your eyes to the difficulty,
the risk, or the failure. 
It is the trust that, if I fail now, I shall not fail forever; and if I am hurt, I shall be healed.
It is a trust that life is good, love is powerful, and the future if full of promise.
