Birthday Blessings Bestowed

Me on my 76th birthday

Special days happen

Because people take time

To make them so

Senryu

I enjoyed a very special birthday today because so many people took the time to make it so for me. My family, friends, neighbors and acquaintances all shared their wishes in some way to make the day great, and for that I am feeling especially grateful and blessed!

He offers abundance

Living Stones

Painted Stone

Believers, we were

Not created to be pew sitters

We are Living Stones

Senryu

And you are living stones that God is building into his spiritual temple. What’s more, you are his holy priests. Through the mediation of Jesus Christ, you offer spiritual sacrifices that please God. 1 Peter 2:5 NLT

Think Positive

Positive Thinking Area sign and two paper birds

Wherever we awake

Everyday we have a choice

Look on the bright side

Senryu

I have the little saying “Positive Thinking Area” which I clipped it out of a magazine long ago, hanging in the hallway of my home, and often times my eyes just happen to fall upon it at exactly the right time that I need to refocus my thinking to be more positive.

I have little quotes, poems, pictures, scriptures, etc posted and scattered all about my home as reminders to me to keep thinking positive and to look on the bright side of life. For each day I awake is a blessing to me and I don’t want to waste a minute of it entertaining negative thoughts.

April 2020

Earth “stay home” inage

April’s thirty days

Filled with uncertainty

Are history

Senryu

Goodbye April 2020. You can claim you were the first full month of the pandemic.

Neath the Masks

Face masks

This new normal is

Filled with masks and 6 foot marks.

A world so surreal

Senryu

Since this Sheltering in Place took effect I have only been going out to the stores one day a week to get my groceries and necessary supplies.

Each week I see more and more changes taking affect. More control, more limiting, more distancing and this week, today it was more masks.

It seemed everyone was wearing masks today, where in previous week just a few were doing so.

It just seemed so surreal seeing everyone all around me in masks.

Looking forward to better days in April.
