Ripples of water
A mirror reflects beauty
Illuminating clear skies
Stalk cascading atop
Suddenly a pod opening slowly
Burst into sunlit skies
Soft petals gentle smile
Halo of leaves
Gently gliding on top
Inviting small insects
To gazed at the blooms'
Looming under mud
deep with in
And when the moonlight appears
It gazed up above the dark sky
And then the tears of heaven
Drowning and clinging
Waiting to be pick by a few...

"Though we may meet beyond the horizon
Though the twinkle in the stars are brighter
Than your smile
Though I ache in longing
Though I've felt belonging
Lost in the dark
Where you gave sweet promise
Light passes through me
Discerning your positive vibes
But, I'm reading it wrong
Am I cursed because I ache for you
Elusive nor decisive
Confused and lost through your words
Light passes through me
Clear as the skies
Now I'm cursed
Because my heart is broken."

I used to sing this song to my children, when they were small. Especially when we are driving and traveling a long road, my Mom sends it to me for a good smile.
Subject: "Senior" version of Jesus Loves Me
This is a "Senior" version of "Jesus Loves Me" from a 92 YEAR OLD PREACHER
While watching a little TV on Sunday instead of going to church, I watched a church in Atlanta honoring one of its senior pastors who had been retired many years. He was 92 at the time and I wondered why the church even bothered to ask the old gentleman to preach at that age. After a warm welcome, introduction of this speaker, and as the applause quieted down, he rose from his high back chair and walked slowly, with great effort and a sliding gait to the podium. Without a note or written paper of any kind he placed both hands on the pulpit steady himself and then quietly and slowly he began to speak . . . . . . .
"When I was asked to come here today and talk to you, your pastor asked me to tell you what was the greatest lesson ever learned in my 50-odd years of preaching. I thought about it for a few days and boiled it down to just one thing that made the most difference in my life and sustained me through all my trials.. The one thing that I could always rely on when tears and heartbreak and pain and fear and paralyzed me.... the only thing that would comfort me was this verse . . . . . . .
"Jesus loves me this I know.For the Bible tells me so.Little ones to Him belong, We are weak but He is strong. Yes, Jesus loves me, The Bible tells me so."
The old pastor stated, "I always noticed that it was the adults who chose the children's hymn 'Jesus Loves (for the children of course) during a hymn sing, and it was the adults who sang the loudest because I could see they knew that the best."
Here for you now is a Senior version of "Jesus Loves Me." Jesus loves me, this I know, Though my hair is white as snow. Though my sight is growing dim, Still He bids me trust in Him.
YES, JESUS LOVES ME, YES, JESUS LOVES ME.. YES, JESUS LOVES ME, THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO.
Though my steps are oh, so slow, With my hand in His I'll go. On through life, let come what may, He'll be there to lead the way.
When the nights are dark and long, In my heart He puts a song. Telling me in words so clear, "Have no fear, for I am near."
When my work on earth is done, And life's victories have been won. He will take me home above, Then I'll understand His love.
I love Jesus, does He know? Have I ever told Him so? Jesus loves to hear me say, That I love Him every day.
If you think this is neat, please pass it on to your friends. If you do not pass it on, nothing bad will happen, but you will have missed an opportunity to "reach out and touch" a friend or a loved one.
God Bless Us All!

Lets try something for fun to discuss today.
My best friend asks me this question last month; she said that one of her friend asks her what she thinks of friends with benefits. She told her that I'm not good at this thing but I will ask my best friend. She asks my own opinion of what I think about it.
But on her opinion sex with benefits has some questions of moral issue, but who are we to judge anyone about their morals? She also said, "It’s not a good arrangement and it ruined friendships ties."
Her friend is doing a Thesis about friends with benefits. So what is really a friend with benefit? A male or female friend who are good friends, who in trying time have each other to talk , listen, bent and a shoulder to cry. A close friend to pour out all your emotional frustrations or something that is joyous, a confidante. A friend you do things with, as a companion.
But what about sex benefit? Don’t you think there should be a boundary, where friendship is in question? Who would want to be in this arrangement?
First, I would suggest that in relationships no body is perfect-we are all human. We are bound to make mistakes.
Nowadays with the lifestyle of life is so complicating, staying in a committed relationship is hard. Not only hard it’s almost like a battle and a lot of people they choose not to be in it.
Some, women or men they prepared to have this idea to stay friends and with benefit. I never really knew what it meant until I was succumbing to it. I don’t have a clue that I was in a friend with benefit situation.
Let me remind you that although some prepares this arrangement but also a lot of people prepares to have a committed relationship.
This is my opinion:
Thesis or What? Her point is correct. We have regard ourselves with Honor, Dignity and Pride. Although in terms of relationship, sometimes you were conceive to a notion, that you enter a relationship in good Faith. It is an understanding, between two person- an Adult decision.
Let me explain myself:
As you enter a relationship, I guess, being friends first a good benefit.
Second: As the relationship grows, you step backward a little bit.
Third: Then you have to re-asses the situation. Is there Love? To me I couldn’t enter in a relationship with out it, this is the back bone of a relationship. Because when we love, everything is possible. Then you will conclude in compromise, loyalty, commitment, and self sacrifice.
Fifth: You came into a realization.
Sixth: His not for me and I was not what he is looking for...
Seventh: Lets just be friends.....
As we become older, and more experience in relationship, this is my opinion...let me remind you.
I was in a Friend with benefit relationship-It wasn't my choice, it was just laid down on my lap. Didn't realized that, it was all it is-Sex. I broke it off because I am still a woman and not just a toy. I am better and deserve better than being used that way. And where is the moral of these men nowadays.
You discern yourself, trying to seek answers, "Wow! That was all I am, sex. “Your Pride is hurt.
Then you look at yourself in front of a mirror, I deserve better...Your Honor is on the question.
Then, you have to preserve the Dignity; you have left as a Woman. It is not fun to be just a benefit....there is no reward, only losing faith to that very person you thought have a respect to your friendship.
Yes -it will hurt a lot....dignity, honor and pride, for a woman's perspective...

As the last petals of flowers slowly drop
Leaves falling onto ground
Bare branches of life
Swaying through the wind chill
Bare and naked
As the horizon swift with wind
Ice chill wind
The flock of Geese heading south
The ducks follows
And all the crane
That all dances through the Lake
The beauty of the skies
Was blanketed with snow
Snow flakes falling onto ground
Lake have frozen to ice
Frozen cold breeze
As the wind blew
Touches gently on my skin
I feel the chill of Winter

Life as it evolves around us in a spinning thread. Each day is new challenge. Each day is also unique. Life defines us in many ways, attributes of everyday struggle. Each day we faces summons us to a lot of questions.
It is kind of strange sometimes because life we follow it how the world turns. Just like going in circles a never ending problem. It could be sunny today, so you must be out there enjoying the sun and glorious of that day. We also tend to like to spend this glorious day with love one's, it is always more meaningful.
And there goes the rain down pouring; it’s like a monsoon river that is overflowing with tears. You also want to be around with your love ones, to help you with moral support and to ease your pain a little bet.
There is no such planning anymore about your future, I have spoken so many Elderly people-who for the whole time are saving for their retirement, they even put on hold of taking time to take vacations, just live a little. They will narrate each story differently, one example this woman her husband is an Engineer they wanted to take a cruise vacation, they needed to save at least10, 000 dollars for the whole trip.
But instead she is in front of me preaching me, don’t just work, work, make time to spend time with your kids. Then as she says that a tiny tear drop fell out of her eyes. She couldn't hold of the thought, they could have taken that vacation, instead her husband is in the hospital laying there, he might not make it.
She’s making an example of her life to me. But as I allow her to open up and allow her to voice her opinion, all I could tell her, I have. I don't plan, nor save any money. As a single mother, saving is out of the question. I have five children that three of them are in college. So I kindly told her that we do, even if we don't have any money or savings.
My children and I just take off and drive. We would just decide were heading that way. So many times we do this; we utilize nature as our playground. We visit state parks, river, and pond-to feed the ducks, and go visiting the lakes. This whole world for us a huge playground, we tend to visit different places, and we are like explorers, discovering a unique insects, rocks, plants, and caves.
My children enjoyed my company; we pack peanut butter sandwiches or pack chicken sandwiches and hams. When we hike we bring a bottle of water, each day is a new discovery for us. And it doesn't cost a lot of money. It is how you use it to spend time with your children.
As I have learned all my life I face so many challenges, there are times I’m feeling like giving up. But as I gaze at my children eyes they needed me to be strong for them. Even, I’m feeling weak inside I couldn't allow them to sense my failures.
Meaning I just tell my children we are not saving money or plan for a vacation...we will do it as we can.
I could be here all weeks typing my whole life but I could only share my experience. I take to do things day by day. I also learned to slow down.
In our lives sometimes the road we take is not all straight, but we must learn to jump over puddles and learning the curves of every turn. Then sometimes it feels, like you’re not going anywhere, but we must keep looking straight ahead. Life is full of clouds overhead, but this clouds when the storm downpour, all the damages it will caused will pass and the light will shine above us.
