You walk in while I’m in the midst of yoga
“Sorry to interrupt”
but you have nothing to be sorry for
that’s what love is:
an interruption of the self
and expansion of the mind,
my world shaken like a mixed drink
Interrupt me again and always
my ways, my days
because I love you dearly
If you’ve made it this far,
You’ve made it this far
It’s not easy
I’m sure there were times
Maybe you wanted out
to give up to give in to say it’s not worth it
I’m better off gone
but you’re not gone, you’re here
Thank God for you!
You are wonderful!
There’s no time like the present
Start making a difference
You are the pebble in the pond the endless ripple
Go out and touch the lives of many
who will benefit from your light
Expel the darkness
It’s a new day
Live it to the full
The other day I bought a homeless man a guitar.
He promised he’d do all kinds of good things with it,
you know, to sell his worthiness to me.
But I didn’t buy it for that reason,
I bought it cuz he wanted a guitar.
I haven’t heard from him since the transaction,
but a pastor friend tells me he plays it all the time.
DO what is good, not because of the outcome
but because it is good.
Sometimes, it pays off in ways
you could never have imagined.
We are all like the waves,
we ebb and flow,
all our sandcastles are swept to sea,
yet there is peace in the coming and the going
of the waters
Sometimes, you gotta play it safe.
Those are healing times, necessary periods of rejuvenation.
Other times, you gotta go balls-to-the-wall,
growth spurts and missteps and unexpected victories.
Both are necessary.
Enjoy your healing;
Celebrate your victories;
Go for the glory.
Be eternally blessed!
