The rain is falling gently and the beauty is leaving its mark on the fragrance on the earth; in the smells of the grasses,
the drops on the hibiscus,
the air is wet.
I’m reminded of the ripples
once a pepple is cast into the water
as I look at the pool with each drop hitting the water and the many rings that it leaves moving outward on the waters.
Skies are gray today,
storms have been brewing in the hearts and souls of so many for days now,
as hearts are heavy,
perhaps Creator is crying
or preparing others or showing their is great release in tears?
Or beauty in times of great pain and journey being walked or struggle?
Ah so many questions
and struggles in life
often not within our control,
not even within our sight
or first hand knowing.
Days of wondering, of hoping, of questioning; of having to rely on instinct and experience to be the greatest teacher
and using our Creator within to guide us to our truth, when truth is hard to find
or experience allows us to know that not is all what it seems.
Shadows play games sometimes
and rain can wash it all away when questions and hazy vision make for inability to see clearly.
We sometimes have to work the plan through the storms to see the signs that we are doing all that we can; and along the way we may even get a sign that spirit is with us, the the Creator knows we are doing our part, the the storm may be there but there is always the rainbow
and although we may not understand it,
life is waiting of for our gratitude
and for us to pay it forward
and be appreciative of all that is
during the good times, the stressful times,
the hard and pain filled times
is precious and filled with amazing grace.
To step out of self
and into service for another by thoughts
and compassion allows us to see beyond the rains and storms of life
into the great possibilites
of truth, honor, integrity
and value this very moment.
To extend a hand that makes a lasting imprint
on anothers’ heart.
Just as Kamryn’s hand as he left his
on a stone of remembrance for our beloved 4 legged Magic
when he was able to work through grief
and yet remember all those times
of great love, laughter
That hand, little yet powerful
extended and still does
in ways that fill the heart.
Extend your hand today.
Extend you heart,
your joy, your laughter!
Let your words be your truth
STand through the rains, the storms, and even the rainbow of life.
there may be times you have to stand with warpaint on;
have to stand in strength
and have to throw out some tough love on the way!
Other times you may need boots to wade through the B.S. in order to not get your feet dirty
as you sort through the crap of life
to get to the real of it,
and believe me when I tell you
it can be tiresome, heart wretching
But one thing I do know,
the truth will always come out,
the storms of life will always pass
if you choose to stand,
to keep walking
to not get trapped in the story; yours that of others, or the worlds!
Now with that said,
enjoy each moment,
and today is your moment!
Tonight at 7pm I will again light candles and ask all to join in lighting theirs for
Thomas O’Brien who is still at MD Anderson out there in Texas with his Mom Debbie at his side.
Debbie is donating platelets for him today; and if anyone is reading this out near MD Anderson and wants to donate; please contact them.
Well truth be told, I am burning the candles round the clock,
yet I’m asking all to join in around the world at 7p your time zone,
to light the night for
strength, compassion, love and to light the way on this painful journey that Thomas is on and his mom
to feel the Universal Love
of the world.
We’re with you Thomas.
Prayers and thoughts are surrounding you by those 5,001 facebook warriors and so many more around the world.
We will light up the skies again tonight and surround you in its warm lights…
