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.

Endless

Eternal life,

Eternal life awaits

Everyone who will

Express true faith in Christ

Each one has a chance

Extend your your heart and

Embrace God’s free gift

Embodied in Jesus

Pleiades

This titled form was invented in 1999 by Craig Tigerman, Sol Magazine’s Lead Editor. Only one word is allowed in the title followed by a single seven-line stanza. The first word in each line begins with the same letter as the title. Hortensia Anderson, a popular haiku and tanka poet, added her own requirement of restricting the line length to six syllables.

Which Gate?

Sky
Wide gate

Opens to pleasures,

Worldly fun,

Care-free,

Yet it ends in destruction,

And utter darkness.

Narrow gate

Is chosen by few

Difficult ,

Obstacles,

Yet leads to everlasting life.

Which gate to choose?

Double Shadorma

Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Matthew 7:13-14

Opportunity

 OpportunityOpportunity won’t wait

As the hand of time extends

Act and don’t procrastinate 

Opportunity won’t wait

Grab it before it’s too late 

Seek before the chance ends

Opportunity won’t wait

As the hand of time extends

Triolet

In 2011 I was offered the opportunity to attend College part time. I was in my elder years and had never had the chance previously to attend college. Seeing this as a once in a lifetime opportunity for me , I took the chance and enrolled as a part-time student in Web Design. It has been a challenge and a long road but yesterday I graduated with Honors! I am very happy to have had the opportunity to do this!
