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

Dear Heavenly Father,

Happy Father’s Day!

It may seem silly to some that I chose to include You in the celebration of this national holiday. The world has gotten so good at trying to exclude You from all things, please for give us for allowing even the discussion of Your exclusion to occur. Thank You for Your grace and Mercy; Your love; Your generosity; Your Word and it’s interpretation through the Bible; Your Holy Spirit dwelling in me and anyone who believes.

You have lifted me out of dark places so many times, given me hope when it seemed like all was lost, comforted me, made me laugh, and filled my heart with unspeakable joy. You have shown me that what is Yours is mine, if I believe.

Help me Lord, show me how to make You smile, show me how to fill Your heart with joy.

I love You so very much.

Amen

No Obligation

You are under no obligation

To be the person you were

Five minutes ago

This is your life

The footprint you leave

On this world

Is yours to impart

The entire universe is impacted By the choices you make

Your belief can move mountains

Your thoughts

Create your experience

What will you create

What mountain will you move

How will you impact the universe

Do you like who you are

Yes, great

No, change yourself

Stop waiting for “when”

When is NOW

Grab hold of your thoughts

Grab hold of life

And

Wring the living daylights

Out of it

Bright

Shift your energy

Smile at yourself

Sing a happy song

Skip around the room

Pray for a friend

Think of God’s light

Filling your heart

Cleansing your thoughts

And before you know it

You will be feeling

Uplifted and bright
