" Be Kind To The Young...the Ill...and the Elderly



Because In Your Lifetime ...You Will Be All Of These"


EARLY MORNING

Early morning my heart awakens to write
Total silence is alive
I enjoy many Pita Bites and peace
The sound of our fish tank is a waterfall overflowing is my heart and soul
I thank God everyday for all He gives and takes away
I peek in on our son sleeping
His beautiful face is an Angel's shiny and full of light in the dark of night
I feel and know the meaning of a smile coming from somewhere deep within it is natural and free
God bless you I say touching our son without thinking
It comes easily and he is a blessing so pure radiant as life
Amazing beauty is his pure child's heart forever free and meant to be

One

he gazes into my eyes and heart
i into his
we are
One
forever blessed
to have each other
he is our son
and he is deep as the quiet early morning hours
his love endures and captivates us daily
in little ways
and surprises
his eyes match the sky
his spirit and energy make us feel alive
he is with us
a teacher a leader
an old soul wise as the moon light
he was born with a light near his heart
pure mystery and hope
he gives us all we
ever need
we are free
his hugs balance us to trust life
Be a child daily, that’s the secret
Mind over matter is about being at peace daily, in spite of circumstance. Being a child of God creates and sustains a peace deep within. With innocence and honesty, children know how to live, eat, love, pray and just simply be themselves. If I decide I will be a child today, I am free. At almost 50, my heart stays young as I work at peace daily through prayer and positive thoughts. With a racing creative mind, and the speed of modern culture, life is far too fast. But when I make my mind still, I truly feel and see life as it is-simple. As a traditional woman, I am the heart of my home. Thanks to my faith in God, I affirm mind over matter daily, knowing I can create a warm and loving home no matter what challenges my family and  I face. Each morning I wake up ahead of my family to pray, trusting in God that I will make each day the best I can. To show my son every day is worth celebrating.  I do special things to bring creativity and wonder to life. Yesterday was a butterfly -themed day, I made all kinds of butterflies. I also make an effort to do good deeds  whenever I can, to teach our son to be a giver-not just a taker-in life. I know my prayers  are not for naught when I recently saw my son give a homeless man a homemade pack he put together with all the essentials, a bible, a toothbrush, a granola bar and soap. The man smiled widely when our son handed him the special pack, and I could see our son felt the happiness of helping others inside his heart. Him practicing “love thy neighbor” made our day. To me, this is mind over matter. In spite of living in a time when the news reports nothing but frightening stories of a world gone mad, I refuse to let fear control my days and I choose to focus on the things I can do to live with the heart of a child, and the random acts of kindness we are all capable of, like helping the homeless or simply choosing to smile. Life can be so simple really, if we stop and slow down like turtles and stay steady on the path to being good people    LOove Paula

My hero is my son whose going on 8 years old. He inspires me to be my best. He is a spirited child who challenges me and when he does I find I grow in leaps and bounds to become a better Mom.
He has always loved to pick me flowers and his manners are wonderful most times. He is appreciative. He is my Hero because he is a good sport at school where he has been bullied. In life his open heart is special. He tries most things and is open to new foods .He isn't afraid to be himself climb high in trees and show his enthusiasm for life. He reminds me of why I love my husband and when I see him with my parents memories are made that will last forever. He is a hero because he
makes me feel good about being a Mother. It is all worth it when I see his bright happy blue eyes and his sense of wonder inspires my Poetry and my life and all of those around him. At school he has received an award for Courage and for Caring and this year for Honesty. When I step back and look at him even if he weren't my son I'd be proud of a boy who is doing so well in his life. His heart is very big and good.He prays for others especially for those who have hurt him. He reminds me to do
what's right and just. At almost 8 he is my hero!

Always remembering our late friend  Kaylee  who passed into heaven at Jimmy's age ( 7) and the joy of being a child of God

butterflies fly by sharing her true joy from heaven everyday

it is fun to eat ice cream in the early morning

trusting in moments of the unknown

believing in Simplicity

needing nothing but a heart full of Love

loving a child with everything

feeling that love returned unconditionally

surprises of God arrive that go beyond all understanding

It is wonderful being a seagull flying high fearlessly truly free

growing beyond this world striving always for the next

giving away things practicing non ~attachment becoming attached to purity of heart

listening in to silence unafraid to really hear messages of truth

Living one's passion is

not wasting time

Money or fame  cannot bring security or confidence but what have we done to make another rich in spirit can and truly does

Resting easy in Gods arms

taking moments to breathe

deep

air

remembering the elderly who need us too

we shine

real glory

not made

but born

believing in miracles

Heaven is seeing rainbows

often and morning sparkles of dew

a child's laughter is medicine for the soul

Revelations come in the wee hours of the morning

be thankful for the gift

of the Holy Spirit

Forgiveness

To simply, ‘be’;
Is to sit within,
Finding
Compassion
For the way things are
Today~
To place another upon the cross,
Is to believe in their goodness~
Forgive yourself
For what you have done
That is gone
Tomorrow is open and new
As morning
And stars awake,
Laughing and dreaming~
“Kiss today goodbye and point me toward tomorrow’;
A familiar song I hear, even now, from my fifth grade play at school~
Teaches us to
Dare live in the moment ,
where everything is well and is happiness…;
Salty tears share oceans of Hope
Crosses in skies of virgin blue
Leave imprints on our hearts as we remember
And forgive~
Praying and thanking God for all the blessings
He has forgiven us~
Forgiveness is
Truth inside,
Having a child’s pure heart,
Trusting in faith
Letting go as a
Waterfall
Bathes us clean~
Love, Paula
