Bill & Vivian

 

“Bill & Vivian”

 

I know an amazing couple that have been married for 63 years.

 

They’ve seen people come and people go, history pass, and children too.

 

Their love is as evident as the silver white hair upon their heads.

 

And with the open and close of each day comes a new hope in tomorrow.

 

Another refilling of the pill box means yet another day to volunteer and make a difference.

 

With every turning of the calendar another chance to love again.

 

So the canes and the hearing aides are not burdens to bare, but fuel for another mile on this long journey of life that they share.

Slightly slower maybe but non-the less eager

When I grow up I want to be just like you!

 

With Love, Wynema

“Breathe”

Breathe, when darkness settles in,

and you’ve heard the rhetoric and spin.

Breathe when war hits home

and you can’t watch the news or pick up a telephone.

Breathe when your mind wants to focus on the dark,

and everything you know seems to look empty and stark.

Life is there or you wouldn’t have breath,

Light is still there to replace the darkness in death.

It’s always darkest just before the dawn,

And when the Son comes up just breath and move on!

Authenticity

What is real,

Would you take

What you know,

If it was fake?

Would you take it

In a sack

And bring it home

Or take it back?

Can you stand

In those shoes,

If they are different

Than what you choose.

Open wide your arms

to real,

No matter what

it is you feel!

It is your gift

To be authentic,

So be proudly

Photogenic!

Poetry

“Just To Think”

Do you ever do anything, just to think?

Shut out the world and let your mind and spirit sync.

Do you ever take a walk in the cool of the day,

And stop to smell the aroma of a wild bouquet?

If you treasured the moment that’s here and now,

If you opened your mind to what your heart would allow,

You would see beauty in ordinary things,

Realize a peace that only God brings.

The anxiety the rush and the stresses of existence,

Would be but a memory way off in the distance.
