The Joy in Haiku

Today I join Meri for Share the Joy Thursday.   For I believe we need to find it in my life every day no matter the realities in which we live.  God is Good in so many ways even in times of trial.

Joy comes in many forms.
And this day has the potential of
being just as grand as
celebrating the beauty in words.
must be open to it!
For  Equilibrium

Like the joy of the sea coming home to shore,
May the relief of laughter rinse through your soul.

As the wind loves to call things to dance 
May your gravity be lightened by grace.

Like the dignity of moonlight restoring the earth,
May your thoughts incline with reverence and respect.

As water takes whatever shape it is in,
So free may you be about who you become.

As silence smiles on the other side of what's said,
May your mind stay clear of all it names.

May your prayer of listening deepen enough
To hear in the depths the laughter of God.

Joyful is the Word
Liltingly spoken in love
Lifts the soul higher


Thanks be to God!!!

Time Flies

Time flies, is flying, has flown.  I've not been here for a very long time.  Like the phases of the moon, life is just like that.  Every changing yet staying the same.  Since I last made an effort to write here that is what my life has been doing.

The Holidays spent with family and friends, treasured times.  The deaths of friends, the void left by their loss, yes, to be treasured, for they will always be there in some way.  The sorrow of those left behind, so real, palpable.

Yet through it all there are the miracles, oh so many, and too numerous to share at this time.  

It's like starting all over again here.  I will try to post as often as I can.  But time does fly and I must do my best to keep up with it.

Thanks be to God!
