Love, Love, Love

Do you know you are
Love, Love, Love from somewhere,
Not here, but above?
Everyone you are becomes
Instrumental bringing light.
Quit hiding in fear –
Stand up, be yourself, always,
The Love you hold is
World-changing, a beacon, guide to
Bring others into happiness.
Stand firm and believe
You are a gift from eternity,
Sent with a purpose
You are meant to transmit to
People you touch, Love for everyone!
Love never ends; it transcends
All the differences, if allowed
Love will work, changing all lives
It touches, so be quick to move
Into wherever, companioned, however,
Carrying Dreams, Faith, Hope, Love
To those who stumble, where darkness,
Despair reign because you are a transform
Sent to revive hearts, minds, souls
And call each life to love shared
From beginning to unknown forever.
Stop criticizing who God made you,
Stop letting doubt, fear, insecurity
Destroy you; negative thoughts
Are lies sent to cage you,
Because with belief, courage, you may
Help set the wounded captives free:
You are a precious agent of Love.

The cat is Goobi, Alex’s cat, who has returned here after about three weeks lost.

Alex has introduced me to the Amazon Original show called The Expanse. I enjoy watching it with him. He chose to stay a few more days, which I love.

There were several hours spent in copy editing today.

Prompt:
Take a photo, or write a scene that under some circumstances is common, but in an instant, is very special.

Proofing the magazine.
Seeing my poem on one of the pages.

Nothing lasts forever
But the things we do with love,
Those are never erased
And they are reason enough
To stay in the fight for life
Until the very end.

Enlist Bliss

What we never guess,
What we always hope to be,
Is reality
In a space and time believed –
Breathed by creativity.


Heart, mind, soul, spirit,
Joined within us together
With the greatest love,
We are the dauntless elements –
Whom God created for good.


Walking the sunshine
Feeling all that is clear, fair,
Like Heaven compares.

Partaken For Good

Positive interaction is a significant boost to the confidence and well-being of those around us. Kind words and gestures help prevent depression and despair.

As we communicate through creative means, we are gifting with elements of our hearts. When there is trouble, the most effective remedy is love. Comfort is conveyed by hugs, generosity, extending help, confirming personal value, and many other kindnesses.

While contact is severely limited for our safety, we should still be close to those we consider our tribe. Family and friends we trust to take adequate precautions should be our continuing connections to some normalcy.

We can never express our love too often. Saying, “I love you” becomes essential because life is a limited engagement without firm guarantees. We are sturdy but also fragile.

We need one another and require emotional support in our relationships. Doubt and fear are widespread. We combat these by investing ourselves in others in any way possible. Creative expression is an excellent outlet we use to encourage, inspire, and lift the spirits of people we value. Being considerate and providing uplifting communication is fundamental to acting out our creativity and making the world a better place.

Creating is like
Diving deep in icy water.
It wakes us up
Revives our will to love,
Give everything to our efforts,
Stake a claim for the life we live,
Encourage, inspire, aspire,
To lives that possess joy,
Reach for happiness.
Let us come out of the depths,
To bear witness to a present,
Future pursuing continual progress.

Prompt: Consider how creativity can make the situation all of us are facing with masks, distancing, quarantine, fear, into a better experience. Create something that brings that to the surface.

Gratitude Today
Alex and I went out for lunch.
I got new brushes since mine was misplaced.
Alex’s cat, who had been missing since before Christmas, appeared today and is now inside as she should be.
I am using a copy stand that dates back to 1981.
Even when I think there is nothing in the well, the well bubbles up with unexpected gifts.
