Time Never Cares

Time never cares what we do it just marches ever forward. There is no turning back when you realize what you regret. #LiveIntentionally #ChooseWisely #BeKind

Each day and each moment offers us an opportunity to make a difference. To touch a life and help even one person breath easier, even for a single moment. How often do we allow those moments of opportunity just slip away as time moves on?

In these times we find ourselves in, it has been said we should never waste a crisis. Well, now is the time to be intentional in how we treat others. Especially those closest to us, those we may find ourselves sequestered with day after day.

  1. BE KIND
  2. SPEAK LIFE
  3. LOVE FREELY
  4. FORGIVE OFTEN
  5. GIVE GRACE

Pick one thing from the list today and extend that to others and especially to yourself. Remember you matter too, and time will march on whether we act or not.

Now what will you do today?

A Happy Place

Where is your happy place?

That place where the moments linger and time melts into eternity. Where all seems right and the cares of this world seem to float away. Our lives are racked with pain and worry.

The world is crazy and evil exists, steadily creeping into our doubts and fears. I believe it is the simple things, those small acts of kindness. Which are often great acts of courage that just might save us. So, I ask again:

Where is your happy place?

Melting Hearts

wpid-1442100933579.jpgShe so easily goes about;
melting hearts,
with soft blue eyes
that will pierce
straight into your soul.

A gentle spirit she carries;
of unspoken grace,
her calm demeanor
belies the strength
she holds in reserve.

Tenderly she holds you;
in mercy’s embrace,
and quietly whispers
of promises to come
and hope in tomorrow.
