Seeds of Greatness

Greatness happens at the moment, the very instant, we decide to be great.

Each of us has a seed of greatness in us and the power to grow it. Circumstances, environment, relationships are all results of our thoughts.

Thoughts create feelings. Joy, sadness, anger, happiness, overwhelm, excitement, hate, love, etc.

Feelings create actions. Forward movement, backward movement, standing still.

Actions create results. Good, bad, or indifferent.

Results are confirmation of our thoughts.

We control our thoughts. They are a choice. For different results we must choose different thoughts.

What size footprint will we leave in the forrest of life today?

Let’s make it a big one 👣🌲🌳🌴

Fly in your own Direction

Be brave with your life

Fly in your own direction

Swim in waters of distant places

Listen to the wind

Chase it where ever it blows

Take rest in the arms of nature

Renew your mind

Walk barefoot along

Moss covered trails

Breath in wild flowers

Dance in the fresh dew

Sleep under the stars

Find out who you really are

Mountains as far as the eye can see

My soul longs to be

Where there are mountains

As far as the eye can see

And sometimes it longs

For sand between my toes

And sunsets along the coast

When I retire I will become

A full blown wanderer

Who experiences the world

In total wonder

Unencumbered by schedule dates

And deadlines

I will take advantage of time

Trekking through the mountains

Camping by a stream

Walking along the coastline

Living my full blown dreams

Cast Your Light

We are made of energy

Formed by the Master Creator

The ancient I AM

The only living God

He has given us freedom of will

To choose how we impact

The space we occupy

And our choices

Can impact the universe

We have the power to

Direct, mold, bend

Send and receive energy

This power exists

Whether we understand it

Or not

Choose to try and understand it

Draw closer to God

Accept Christ

Follow His example

Learn how to cast your light

Toss out bright stars

From the basket

Of abundant energy

Flowing out of your soul

Waterfalls Renew

Good decisions

Some bad

Bad choices

Teach lessons

Lessons learned

Bring wisdom

Wisdom hides

Evasive, elusive

Elusive dreams

Come alive

Alive, flowing

Like waterfalls

Waterfalls renew

Positive energy

Energy exists

In everything

Everything impacts

Our lives

Lives change

For good

Good decisions

Some bad

Make you

Pirates We Be

Come sail with me

Pirates we be

Riding the high sea

Looking for treasure

The kind that can’t be measured

It lurks in the invisible mist

On the winds of imagination

It will grant our every wish

Whatever our minds can conjure

If our hearts can endure

It’s a treasure for sure

Riding the high sea

Pirates we be

Come sail with me

Small Town Talk

Small-town talk

Has a way of

Getting back around

To the person

Who has been being

Talked about

Your words made it all the way

From SW Florida to Texas

I heard what you said

I know what you did

So I’m sending you

This friendly little message

You better hope Texas

Remains my position

Because

If I come back home to Florida

I’m coming back

As your competition

Damn Hard

Life ain’t always beautiful

Sometimes

It’s damn hard

There are moments

I may feel like giving up

But

It’s just not in my blood

So

I give myself a swift kick

In the keister

Jerk my attitude

Back into the right shape

And

Determine to do

Whatever it takes

Waiting for a Flight

Flying during major holidays

Is not the wisest choice

Advised my all too familiar

Still small voice

But it’s my dad’s birthday

And my mother’s too

I haven’t been home in months

It seemed like the thing to do

Now flight delays

Causing airport stays

Has me thinking

There has to be a better way

I was supposed to land

In Florida last night

But here I sit in Georgia

Still waiting for a flight
