Chapter One

A Gift Life is a gift, bottom line. Stop throwing it away. The easiest thing in the world, is to care. Coping out is selfish. Causing heartache is careless, if you can help, then help. We live in a great country. AND, Abuse of our constitution is ruining our freedom. Race, color, creed, all the same. People work for their needs. Those that won't work and want, inflict stupid upon themselves. A New Year A new year, a new beginning. How many, will go forward? Hopefully healthy, and happy. How many will enjoy this gift? How many will carry old baggage to hold themselves back, in doubt and unhappiness. Going forward means, you are alive. Thank heavens. You have choices, you have self. Look at a tree for a moment. It goes upward in growth, strength and beauty. Think of yourself as a tree. Sounds odd? Not really. For, if you see yourself as a beautiful flower, cut for impression, it's loss is in it's dying, being thrown away and forgotten. A new beginning is for you to grow with the knowledge you carry. Old baggage should be the cut flower that dies and is remembered for it's beauty. A Road The road to heaven, can be a bumpy ride. We make so many mistakes and, most of the time know it. We say we're sorry, we ask for forgiveness, knowing full well, we will be forgiven. We are so sure of this because, "He," never fails us. We, fail ourselves. A Sister's Love She went to her sisters grave site, she hadn't been there in a while. Love for her sister, who took care of her as a child. Thoughts overwhelm her," this is my sisters end of journey, her resting place." Remembering her beautiful face. Although it's been awhile since her sister passed, she knew her sister was an angel and, more than likely standing next to her as she did in life. The vessel used in life, lays beneath the soil in a chest, with honor, in peaceful rest. She reads her sisters name on the headstone, covered with flowers. Good memories flash across her mind, as sadness and longing flood tears that blind. That special bond forever in place, is locked in everlasting grace. A Must A must in respect, to navigate the soul, of the person who stands in front of me, in conversation. The seeming innocence, and yet, to convince me of a happening in their life. Am I the fixer? God help me, please! In life this question, comes to those who are helpers but, don't know it. Those who are not, and believe they are, could hurt and hinder. Question? if you feel the patience of our Lord, really feel it, you must not let it pass. Help! A Treasure Life, a treasure, to be treated as the precious gem it is. Chips of life are many facets, polished to reflect serious humanity who shine in goodness. Well earned, never again to be dulled by ignorance and stupidity. Who, among us hasn't one time or another been tempted to be other than who we are? Hand picked gems of humanity, with generous LOVE. And then. We allow, chips and dullness to take over, blindly. Selfishness, chips away this wondrous gem. Look into the polished facet, see the real gem, in pure reflection. Wake up to a serious human who shines, in the goodness of mankind. Life, the treasure, must be used wisely. About The Sea Many words are written about the Sea. The calm beauty it holds beneath, the waves above. The greatness of creatures, strong and bold. The wonder of things unknown. A strong wind whips at this wonder. Creating an angry movement of itself. Taking back land, that belongs to it. Age The heart and mind are stronger than age, and appearance. Years pass, time changes the way one looks. The heart knows but, sees what feels good. Reflection sets the mind back to real time. The heart helps one understand time, real, to go on. The best of life is that, goodness comes forth in honest souls. One doesn t have to dwell on appearance. Seek the eyes, listen to the voice, Life has many more gifts, with age and, appearance. All of Us "Christ," was given to us all. A gift from, "God," to live with and, to show us goodness, kindness, most of all, Love. "Christ," is all people. No color, no religion, no nationality. None of the things people make up, to complain about other people. And, not being satisfied with, who they are. The only one who is right is, "God." His gift to us, "Jesus," is so special, it scares those in self imposed desire. Sinful souls killed, "Jesus." Who then is free of sin, even today? "Jesus," is with us always, yet, He, suffers crucifixion each day. The continued sins in our world, never stop His suffering. Alone Sad happens when we least expect it. We get so caught up in the moment. We push aside, help needed. Our brain sits in confusion. We must wake up and get real, not easy Take the help. Trust in the Lord, so you don't sit in the bad side of, alone. Altered Sanity Alcoholics are alcoholics because it pleasures them. Alcohol in a manner of excess, alters thought. Sanity at times during this happening, gets crooked. Lashing out in a mean loud voice and, presenting pain, to those who care. By this measure, a loved one becomes, less human. Loved ones lost, forever. Always On the bright side of everything can be a dream awaken. The creative mind is so inclined, to appreciate life's fullness, of forward motion. Trust, the potion to fill emptiness, going forward. Procrastination melts or, holds tight, God, shares His light, with strength. Humanity always reaching upward, the Lord, always reaching down, never giving up. Hence, dream awakens. Angel's So many Angels, so many helpers. So much Love, with compassion. These are people who, do for those, that cannot do for themselves. Just talking to someone who is lonely, needing to he remembered. The warm feeling in touching words, comfort the soul. Every human deserves this warmth. Angels are all of us who care, and, without question can do, and help. Our helping, helps the Angels that guide us. We couldn't do it without them. That little voice within our head, lets us know, Who we are. Angry Angry mean people with fire on their tongue. Spilling out viciously. Using the F-word, The N word wanting to be heard. Only Fools thrive on useless words. No class, no dignity no real humanity. How about, Failing Nothingness? Classified as humans? Any Given Moment On any given day, and at no special time, living with someone who could face you in a good mood or bad! How do you gauge how to react or, do you react without thought, which most of us do? Say, you got up in a bad mood. Now, do you take it out on all those around you, or, are you strong enough or, wise enough to put your bad mood where you and no one else gets hurt? All shouldn't have a bad day or, evening, because you forgot who you are? Think about it, when you come home from work, does this same thing happen? Being physically or mentally exhausted, takes it's toll. It's for you to take control, so your loved ones continue to, Love you. Are We? Are we selfish with our Love? We must be, in a strong way. We Love those around us who we take care of and, blind ourselves to their bad tempers and, selfish ways. I choke on the thought of, unconditional Love. The word itself is abused by those, who express it, just to be heard. It gives these uncaring humans a tool to hurt. The use of meanness driven by selfishness, drugs and alcohol. They won't change, reason being, they may become human"? As Night Falls As night falls into forever sleep. Peace will be realized when awaken to the voice of Angels, greeting a once suffering soul. illness comes at times, when no attention is payed to a gift, once cherished. Or remembered, it was ours for awhile. Forgetting, caused this pure power of Life, to be lost in selfish euphoria. Born into Freedom Born into freedom, never knowing real fear, Blessings in abundance advantages are clear. Gracious Warriors, keep us safe, born to the same freedom, yet fighting for us, in an unsafe place. Their vision filled with war, hunger, blood shed and fire, seeming endlessness, they will not tire. Must end oppression, with aggression, to Peace. To finally see, Humanity expressing Freedom. To this end, many live's will live. Care When someone in a wheelchair is coming toward you, do you look at them, and step aside? Or, do you look down on them, and they have to go around? Nine chances out of ten, real people, accept and respect them. The importance to step aside. The courage and strength it takes for them to be out and about, taking care of their needs, is their life. After all, who would trade places with these souls, who would rather be up and walking around? Please, SEE the person in that chair, Really see them. Treat them as you want to be treated. It's so easy to care. Challenge The only word for those who wake up. Once awaken, the mind opens to great wonders. Challenge, the gift, takes care of many blunders. Working through challenge clears a path, to another. All set before us to succeed. Just to put ones shoes on each day is a challenge. Simple as this is for many, check the challenge of the handicapped. Every challenge before us, is there for a reason. Every challenge before us, each day, each season. Change Thought Laws are in place for people who make bad choices. They get caught, then want laws changed to suit their desires. Not everyone is a celebrity, or in an important position. They must wake up their thoughts and voice, to save them from themselves. Life is always good. It really depends on who is using it. One can turn around stupidity. They can learn with Love, that, each second of breath, "a Gift," each conscience thought, "a Gift." Child Lost Sitting in a corner thinking about a child lost because, of a careless parent. Praying for this beautiful little child. Knowing how little if any, will they Love this parent when they are twelve years old? The selfish uncaring parent is losing day by day, this gift A life given special, to save them from themselves. Blind, this parent is, giving their Love to someone who could care less, about this child. So many times when a parent changes partners, it's the child that pays, watching this parent give their Love to someone else, instead of them. The child will feel lost and in the way. So Sad. Parents need to think. See your Gift, "your Child." Choice God gave us EYES, to see. He gave us HANDS, to touch. God gave us HEART, to feel He gave us HOPE, that's real. God gave us THOUGHTS, With voice. He gave us a BRAIN, for CHOICE. Choice with Voice Those who die young have a different calling with God. Those who die young because of an unknown reality , not of God's plan, are not forgotten. His Love, has no measure. Life given at birth is the soul treasure of His Love. In a time when war leaves lasting scars and Peace seems really far. In a time frame that doesn't move, how many more live's will it take to prove? Only God knows when this war will end, it matters a great deal who leads the women and men. God gave us a choice, how then will we use our voice? Class The sum of a Woman is, that she is to be a Lady. A lady is always a classy person, who wear clothing with care and comfort. She speaks with dignity, intelligence and grace. if, she really cares, she does not dress to show her wares. One must mention, that profanity, when used to get attention, is just a game, in stupidity and shame. Clear Thought The life of a noble soul, mixed with confusion. Raised with many do's and don'ts, that sometime make little sense as one grows older. A quest of confusion that we all started out, as one color? Followed by a gift the many colors of, other souls. An open mind of the do's, comes to pass. To this end we learn with clear thought, that this gift is so special and, so blessed, to all real people. Clearly What is life without God's gift of Faith? Nothing for us, awaken too late. Prayer tells us all, of His great Love. It's waiting for us, in Heaven above. His son, our Lord, gave for us, happiness, Love, more than we deserve but, trust. There are those, who find it hard to give. Help and Love for each other, make it easier to live. Remembering our Lord, who Love's us dearly, Gave His Life for us, that we may see clearly. Clouds A gentle breeze blows down from mountains leaning against a powder blue sky. Sparkles of moisture glisten through cotton candy white clouds we wish to touch. Mother Nature peaks our imagination in the appearance of these wondrous puffs of purity. Around the gracious mountains stretching across it's blue canvas. Shapes of flowers and creatures, expressions of these God given white blossoms. For all, who pay attention, to an important part of our lives. Civility Civil respect is no longer used. It's been erased some time ago. Those who use this ancient habit of civility get lost? By those who speak, challenge and are faster with words, only they use. They catch a person off guard. Being civil wins, when we realize we may be taken advantage of. Being civil is the importance of being real. We will and can bring back civility. It's not lost, to Real People. Color We must stop using the color of our skin, as a crutch to cause ugly-ness. It takes good judgement, a good heart, a clear head, to make ignorance and violence, a nonexistent entity. We all are of color, and not meant to question the difference. This judgement, not, ours. We were given the knowledge, and, didn't pay attention. (Continues...)
