Living Life

Robot sculpture in field McMinnville,OR 2019

Living in an imperfect world

With imperfect people

As we struggle to survive

Searching for answers

With imperfect people

We walk, talk and dwell

Searching for answers

Only God can help us achieve

We walk, talk and dwell

Climbing mountains

Only God can help us achieve

Are we willing to trust Him?

Climbing mountains

Living in an imperfect world

Are we willing to trust Him?

As we struggle to survive

Realization

The word Happiness

Diligently I was

On a quest for happiness

Had to make my own

Senryu

The other evening I was creating a collage using some torn paper and I wanted to title the balloon in the picture with the word “Happiness”. I did not want to write or print the word but hoped to find it in a magazine that I could cut out and paste in. I looked in magazine after magazine to no avail. The best thing I could find was the word “Happy”—no Happiness.

I decided then that I would just have to find some letters to cut and paste in order to make the word myself.

That is when the realization came to me that in life we often search and search for Happiness and never find it, because we really need to create it ourselves
