Roses and rose petals on ground at the Rose Garden in Portland, OR—June 2012
We count our life in years,
But what about the days?
All the seconds of life?
Cherish all the minutes.
It’s in those moments,
Memories are made,
Chances are taken,
Changes often happen.
Treasure every breath.
Celebrate each day.
Give thanks for your life.
My grand-daughter messaged me today to tell me I have lived 27,365 days so far! Where did all those days go?
It seems a lot longer when you view your life as days rather than years!
It’s pretty amazing to think about, and so inspired the thoughts for this poem.
A vibrant sound.
Its ins and outs,
Dreams arise and,
Hush over the land
Humanity and Nature
Seeming to be on hold
Flag hangs silently waiting
Who? Will our next leader be?
I am feeling a heavy stillness in the air today. No wind at all. Our Flag hangs silently. It’s eerie. It’s almost like nature and mankind are holding their breath awaiting this Election Day outcome. I shall pray and trust in God for His will to be done on earth as it is in heaven.
