What I have learned through a long suffering
“The bird with a broken pinion never soared so high again, but its song is sweeter!
“We can do anything we want if we stick to it long enough.”
“He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.”
“There is no failure save in giving up.”
“Trying times are times for trying.”
“It isn’t the load that weighs us down – it’s the way we carry it.”
“God neve makes us conscious of our weakness except to give us of His strength.”
“The world is not interested in the storms you encountered — but did you bring in the ship?”
–Anonymous Author of the book “Apples of Gold”

“If in bed I say, “When shall I arise? then the nights drag on.”
–Job, Chapter 7:4
Today I am Jubilant! Finally, can I glance behind the past 7 months afflicted with leg pain. Again, able to do everything I used to, especially my daily walk. Through patient perseverance, I’ve been recreated in humble Joy. The Lord has restored my prosperity.
“The Lord restored the prosperity of Job.” Chapter 42:10
Heaven came to me in tribulation. Angels decluttered remaining strongholds not part of my destiny and deposited more of God’s unfathomable Love. This cleansing is irreplaceable. It is done.
Whatever August brings I receive it.
Gladly there’s still more summer to enjoy. Get out and be happy!

“Creating a mandala can bring healing during moments of intense personal growth.”
A mandala is a diagram of geometric design likely showing the cosmos. Eastern religions create mandalas as a sacred place of worship. Christian mandalas depict the cross, stained glass and the rosary.
Carl Young introduced the mandala to the West to explore the unconscious mind when he stated:
“I sketch every morning in a notebook a small circular drawing. Only gradually did I discover what the mandala really is — the self, wholeness of the personality, which if all goes well is harmonious.”
Only at low tide
Colored sand forms a design
And washed at high tide

“Have a “Haiku moment” when your mind stops and your heart moves.”
–Margaret D. McGee
Writing Haiku begins a sacred form of worship. You capture a place in nature and reveal the honor of everyday living.
The world speaks itself
Constant convergence of change
My life is sacred
How I love being moved by Haiku.
