This week as I was driving to my daughter’s home to help with the grandbabies; I thought of the “Smile”.

index

What is it that a smile really does for humanity?
We shall never know the good and to the extent the smile actually does for someone especially in their hour of need.

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
Leo Buscaglia

Who knew that a simple curve and partial parenthesis on keyboard was so wonderful and it truly has no barriers and applies to all languages.

Maybe it’s the saving grace candle in the window sorta speak or maybe the bridge between two worlds.

Whenever I smile at my grandbaby who is only 4 months – he responds with a smile and a giggle.

An untrained child responds to a smile.
So many of us at times need Just a Smile.

Smile

wow your smile
must be
the bestest
most wonderful smile
make a baby giggle
spread warmth of the sun
forces all the bad thoughts to flee
make me change my mind
mix it up it’s free
smiles give life
brightens my day
yup yipper yes sir ree
love that beautiful smile
makes everything right and puree..©

In a time
That oft is toxic
Depressing –
Surrounded by
So much Tragedy
And violence –
Negative vibes and words
Bombard
Our Thoughts
That
Affect us on every level
Of our existence –
Naturally weighs heavily
On our psyche, Our spirit,
Our soul.

This Toxic corrosive weed- similar to an unwanted weed in a garden-
Unexpectedly changes you
Like a virus and makes one sick.

If you take control you will gain the upper hand and regain your balance.

balance

The taking control or
Detoxification Process:

A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.

A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.

This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you.

Don’t worry about the toothpick in a brother’s eye concentrate on removing the telephone pole in your own eye.

Choose – We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.

Take total responsibility for our attitudes. Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude.

Purposely think and utilize Positive emotions – like joy, contentment, inspiration.

Nurture Gratitude – takes nothing for granted and you will constantly awaken to new wonder.

Recognize the Love of The creator God in everything He has given us – and He has given us everything.
Every breath we draw is a gift of Love.

Offer the Grace card
I promise to pray for you every day
Ask for forgiveness
Grant you the Same
And be your friend always.

Be kind – with zero zip zilch non naught nil agenda –  just cause.

Giving Spirit –
To all, charity.
To every child, a good example.
To yourself, respect.

Happy New Year

Deana Hoyles – “Kindness”

 

christmas tree couple

**

We know that we ought to be thankful for the good things and use the not so great things to teach us to count our blessings.

touching-hands

One of the greatest blessing in our lives is to love and know love.

It is far too easy to camouflage the very people we love that make life worthwhile, with the business and busyness of life.

Tis the Season-
It’s Christmas, it’s a miracle, it’s love, it’s a gift –
To fall in love is a precious gift, a miracle.

Would you like to fall in love all over again?

To fall in love all over again brings tears to my heart and rain to my eyes.

Would you like to fall in love again this Christmas season?

To look into the eyes of creator God afresh and see the miracles of his love for you. To once again have hope because of the Man whose birth we celebrate on Christmas Day. To fall in love with the creator not just his creation.

To look into the eyes of your spouse as once you did and caused that head over heels butterfly feeling. The commitment in your heart of your youth to never take him/her for granted.

As a youth or young adult in love it is so natural to want to explore, to touch, to feel that warm body of another human being. To immerse in that sensual electrifying experience. The desire to be in love came so naturally; could that happen again?

I believe that one of the biggest reasons that people are miserable especially at Christmas is because they refuse to let go of the hurts, disappointment, and offenses of others. They justify their pain and keep themselves and others locked in a prison of unforgiveness. Believe me It isn’t easy making the choice to forgive But living with unforgiveness can be deadly! There is a great need to forgive.

A need to rekindle, refresh, fan the flame of love.

To make a date every day. Re-establish connection with your life-companion the forever friendship. There’s a good man in there- there’s a good woman in there.
In sickness and in health. To be captivated once again.

To look into the eyes of your now grown child/ren and remember the naivety of that new mom feeling. To remember your heart swell with love for the little one. The smell, the touch of his/her silky newborn skin of this little human who needs you every second of every day. The promise you made to nurture and keep them safe all wrapped in the warmth of your love. To disrespect or allow harm near your child would be unthinkable. Remember – you would never let anyone or anything interfere with that sweet baby smile. Honor your children.

As we fall in love with God, spouse and child remember those who suffer. For those who are ill, forgotten, lonely; for those who are homeless and are huddled on dark winter nights in the unseen corners of cities all over the world.

Don’t let this season be the greatest regret of your life.
Let it be the greatest love’s rebirth of your Existence. Let it bring you back to life.
To feel, to touch, to hug, to forgive, to kiss, to recommit, bringing joy thought lost.

No it doesn’t have to be a fairy tale but true life.

Thanks for reading my blog!

Merry Christmas

 

????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

One

One last look

heart heavy
thoughts of pain and tragedy
could not see while viewing
burden of yesteryear
all i could carry
ways and means to continue thus
only misery
darkness
laborious journey
almost to eternity
weary to marrow of my bones
threatening twist
to face malignant demons
each tentacle
eclipsed light, love, happiness
to lift the shrouded darkness
major transform turn around
face haunting past
examine stepping stones
understand let it go
in front, many heaps of ashes lay
pierced my heart to see
the ashes and debris of the past
collective heartbreak
feel dreams, wishes, desires
search for love, slip
through my fingers
burned in ashes lay
to be swept away
as dust
trail laden stench
daunting debris
sat in it’s wake
puddle of despair de’bauchery
unfixable mess
i heard shrieks and screams
god help me see beyond
thickening black
brilliant electrical illuminacity
in twinkling twinning
of love and enlightenment
clarity of thought
transfixed in joy
alien to me
path ahead darkness still
one last look of the past
deep breath
facing new path in faith
suddenly an ambient light
gentle cascade
looking up tril-lions
of wonder and might
shimmering across the sky
to brighten my path
shackels dissipate
ready to move on
lifting my hands t’ward
‘stars’ …

Power of Words

Words

 

You can get quite good at using them
A Heated argument
Using words to hurt
Actually You can get quite good at hurting as well
But what if the relationship or the person dies. Such pain inflicted.
What then?

 

The alternative
Spend the rest of one’s life
For good
To heal
To encourage
 To lift the broken hearted
To bind and heal wounds
To make amends

Good words is therapy
Change is necessary

It takes practice
One word at a time!©

Words Don’t Come Easy

See HIs Love

 

Love Me Do

 

While I do not aspire to all of Will’s beliefs; these words are great.

Every day children die from long drawn out painful debilitating diseases [cancer is one].
This poem is just my reminder to love our family and those that come in our path As if it was their last day. Make it count!

too many today
are holding
their little one
with all their might
soft touch
hoping
to save their life,
pain too much
disease too strong
as they sing
one last song,
earth’s thistles
and weed
extreme fight
tears
cannot hide
the tragedies,
no reason
for sickness
for grieving,
the pain
spur
to pray
hope
strength
reason
stir,
love
release
of life
is hardest easy
to learn…©.

EnCourage Others by your ATTITUDE.

Positive-Attitude

The famous question almost redundant but I will ask anyway. When you see half a glass of water sitting on the counter – is the glass half empty or is it half full? Those who have a positive outlook on life see the glass as half full. Some people see life full of problems – others see life full of challenges. What is your outlook on life? We encourage one another by our attitudes.

I am reminded of the story of two shoe salesmen who went to a tropical island where no one wore shoes. The first shoe salesman came back with a negative attitude and was somewhat depressed. He said, “It was so discouraging – NO ONE WORE SHOES! I’ll never sell shoes there.” The second salesman came back and he was all excited. He said, “What great potential! What great opportunity! NO ONE WORE SHOES! I gave away a pair of shoes to the tribal leader and he loved them. All the other tribal members want shoes now. We have a wide open market! NO ONE WORE SHOES!”

What is your outlook on life? Do you need an attitude check?

Yes there are moments when we flail and get a negative attitude but when we allow a positive attitude to dominate our life everything looks so much better.

I start fresh every day.

  • Be thankful
  • Be kind
  • Be at ease and have fun
  • Be good to yourself and think good thoughts about yourself
  • Be a good detective and find positive things

Our attitudes can affect our behaviors.

Let me encourage you – to be an encourager. Encourage others with the words you speak to them.

Encourage others by having a positive outlook on life.
“We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.”
Abraham Lincoln

“We cannot change our past… we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you… we are in charge of our Attitudes.”
Charles R. Swindoll

I love jokes so here’s one…..

The Good Deed

A lady lost her handbag in the bustle of Christmas shopping.
It was found by an honest little boy and returned to her. Looking
in her purse, she commented, “That’s funny. When I lost my
bag there was a $100 bill in it. Now there are 100 $1 bills.” The
boy quickly replied, “That’s right, lady. The last time I found
a lady’s purse, she didn’t have any change for a reward.”
 

Thanks for reading my bLoG!

You can encourage one another with your ACTIONS.

Remember to listen to the video at the end of the post; Bruno Mars is fabulous.

Who was it that said Actions speak louder than – WORDS?
The values you/I have in life are judged more by how you/I live y/our life than by what you say.

People notice what you DO.

By our actions – we are setting an example for others to follow.

James a well known guy said to be Be doers not hearers only.

Love is more than emotion/s.
“Love is patient; love is kind. Love does not envy; is not boastful; is not conceited; does not act improperly; is not selfish; is not provoked; does not keep a record of wrongs; finds no joy in unrighteousness, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”

Love is “ACTION”

I can choose to show kindness or not to show kindness.

I can choose to be compassionate or not.

I can choose to brag or not to brag.

I can choose to hold a grudge or to let it go.

I can choose..

Just the other day I was talking to a government official at the pardons Canada dept. Before I go any further I was talking to pardons Canada as a liaison for someone else.  We talked about giving people second chances.  People may have taken many wrong paths but there comes a time when someone needs to give them a chance.  Who knows we could be the very person whose act of kindness- a giver of second chances – could give someone back their life.

ACTIONS

It is wise to have good role models.  We all need them.  We all need someone to cheer us onward.
I have a few good earthly flesh and blood role models. I also have the creator; I am safe to follow the creator.

In a world with such negativity and trash;There are so many people that are in need of encouragement so then it is required of me whenever possible to do just that. Actions speak louder than words

Touch of Love

AT the touch of love
adoration abounds
clarity in change
fragrance of delight
cry together
touch the wounds
share the pain
healing rain
of heaven
who touches
my soul
inside cradle
of comfort
as a lullaby song
I’m
not alone..©

When it’s all said and done…just keep spreading the love.
 

Well done is better than well said.  ~Benjamin Franklin

Talk doesn’t cook rice.  ~Chinese Proverb

Your beliefs become your thoughts,
Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your destiny.
Mahatma Gandhi

“Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.”
William James

I know you can be a great person of action.  I have faith in you.

Love and keep loving.  Remember you make the world a better place.

Blessings to you.

Words

Encouragement means: “to add courage to”.

I’ll go out on a limb and say that A person who gives words of encouragement is helping another person become bolder and braver and blessed.

By giving encouragement I believe you are adding courage to that person- helping a person stand firmer and go farther.  Often give them meaning in their life.

I remember [many years ago as a youth] my friend and I would run races; she usually came in first and I usually the last. Believe me It doesn’t matter if you are coming in first place or last place – if people are there cheering you on – it gives you the added boost to finish the race.

A wise saying: Encourage each other daily, while it is still called today and keep each other on your toes.

You CAN encourage one another with your WORDS.

This is probably the most common way that we encourage one another – we tell people how much we appreciate them.

A word spoken at the right time is like golden apples on a silver tray.

or better yet

The right word at the right time is like a custom-made piece of jewelry.

or

The right word is music to my ears. 😀

But of course; Even when we don’t really mean to, we say dumb things and foul things up. Even when we have high hopes and honorable intentions – words sometimes get all backwards and twisted around.

But please don’t give up trying to encourage.

For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body.

Just think about all the things you said or wanted to say and the effect it did or would have if you would only encourage.

  • The effect the words of a parent have on a child.
  • The effect the husband’s words have on a wife and vice versa.
  • The impact the boss’s words have on an employee.
  • Words said in love to a family member or stranger.
  • Words said in anger.
  • The last words on a death bed.
  • Words help shape y/our lives – just as we have shaped the lives of others.
  • Words that impact a child with self esteem.

 The right word at the right time is like a Priceless Piece of Jewellery.

Thanks for visiting my bLoG!

power of words

It’s been a difficult few weeks..No signs of drastic improvement but there is change so for that I am most grateful.  This lull that I have felt has pulled me in once again with reflection.

What is it I really need in this life?

Whom shall I talk to to unload this burden?

Where shall I run for solace?

 

Where shall I Run

*

Where should I run?

 

In that moment

of encumbrance

when faith would wane

grapple with grace

and wonderment

i want to run away,

where too should i run?

i shall run to you

to silence

near the fountain of all being

at the fane

where wizards of wonderment

and wisdom are free

grand graces grow

transfigured

by a-mazing voyage

i run to the centre

of who i am –

the Eye of the Universe….©
