Stripping away the rose colored glasses of denial concerning my reality. Getting in touch with truth. Reaching out to others in empathy concerning their reality and their walk to truth.

As We Are ~

We are strong.
We are beauty.
We glide through the sky,
touching the clouds,
tasting the rain, 
that waits to fall.

We tease the sky.
We sculpt ourselves.
We choose the colors,
of dazzling hues,
from all seasons,
and are born on the wind.

We are glowing.
We are dreaming.
Our tendons sing, 
of a universal design,
a most grand design, 
mythical and elusive.

Loved ~ as we are.

I love this blog hop!

Each Friday, we post what we're celebrating - those small achievements for our week!  It can be about writing, family, school or general life.  Then we hop to other blogs, offering congratulations to other people. To be part of this blog hop, all you have to do is put your name on the linky list on Lexa Cain's Blog.

Thank you to our co-hosts:

What am I celebrating?

1 ~  My Japanese Magnolia (Tulip) Tree is full of buds. By Monday I'll have big blooms!

2 ~ Yesterday was so pretty, I trimmed back all the bushes in the yard.

3 ~ I'm reading John Eldredge's book, The Way of the Wild Heart. It's about the six stages of a man's life.  If I learn any secrets, don't worry, I'll share them.

Have a fun celebration day! Thank you for hopping over here.  I'll hop over to see you (smile). 

And now ~  the linky vehicle we travel on... hop forth and celebrate!

oh ship of sound

By the shore, in the foam
She stood as she played
Deep notes
Harmony touching the waves ~

A single wing, floating
Stroking each string
While waters wash the sand ~

Coming round the coastline, a ship
Soft sounds from her bow
Her heart to replay her song ~

a little help... please!

"Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends..."

The on-going saga of my friend who has given up her diet is puzzling. She hadn't lost any weight in over three months, so she gave up her New Year's Diet Resolution? She now claims she has lost 4 pounds!! She says her, "eat a special dessert once a week," is the key to her success. Could that be true? 

The first week she made chocolate cake.
The second week she made coconut pies.

We are now into the third week and there's a dilemma! She can't decide between Pecan pie or hot fudge sundaes? I'm at a loss, because I like both equally well. Maybe... if she tops the pie with vanilla ice cream... slathered in chocolate? You see? I simply cannot help her choose. Would someone help us?

Rain ~ poem and song

The rain will start to fall,
On every day ~ on me.
I know just who to call,
And where I want to be.

I'll call up Mr. Sun,
And tell him I will scream.
I've got to have some fun,
If only in my dream.

So keep on pouring rain.
You can't make me sad.
My dream will keep me sane.
My flowers will be glad.

~ How about a rain song?

Results of the Coconut Cream Pie Marathon

A week ago one of my friends decided she'd had enough of her 2015 New Year's Diet Resolution. You remember. She brought over a chocolate cake, vanilla ice cream, and Hershey's chocolate syrup. (Uh-huh.) 

This week she declared a coconut cream pie marathon. I thought it was just a joke. (Uh-huh.) But when I arrived at her home, there were three pies... three!!! I was so happy to see her two sisters and a couple of co-workers. It was surreal.

Let me be brief. Six women and three coconut cream pies. 

I'm hoping my body will shed the huge amount of coffee I've consumed. As it is, I'm looking at being awake when the 2 a.m. Daylight Savings Time hits.

So what's for this coming week? I thought you'd never ask. Pecan pie - because she got some wonderful pie shells on sale. No, wait! She may do chocolate fudge brownies, with vanilla ice cream. 

I'm pretty sure I have an out of town appointment. If not, I'll make one - somewhere. (Uh-huh.)
