Monday Meditation...

I read this beautiful poem one of the blogs that I follow and I thought of it this morning during my meditation...I'd like to share it with you..

I Think I Shall Never See...
I think that I shall never see...
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prestAgainst the earth's sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in Summer wearA nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree...
i read this on fab fiber's blog...check it out...

Finding A New Home...

Well, here we are, into the Spring season...The birds singing, animals running around, grass growing, flowers budding and blooming and the earth is alive with movement and song...So my young son decided to paint a beautiful bird house so one of our frequent visitors can make a new home...
We don't know who is residing in this lovely house but we do know it is now a home...We hope to capture a snapshot soon...

Happiness...

"Tell everyone you know: "My happiness depends on me, so you're off the hook." And then demonstrate it. Be happy, no matter what they're doing. Practice feeling good, no matter what. And before you know it, you will not give anyone else responsibility for th e way you feel—and then, you'll love them all. Because the only reason you don't love them, is because you're using them as your excuse to not feel good."
