"We cannot stop the winter or the summer from coming. We cannot stop the spring or the fall or make them other than they are. They are gifts from the universe that we cannot refuse. But we can choose what we will contribute to life when each arrives."
"I am still amazed at how big, how enormous a love and mystery God is - and how small are the minds that attempt to corral this life force into rules and taboos, cults and sects." ~Bono
Winter echoed to the cold, “I’m old enough to meet my soul’s deepest glow.”
As age greets us, so, too, does the soul’s depth. Time and experience teach us along the way what matters, and this truth glimmers through loving words and deeds.
Owning our soul’s deepest glow is a gift, and sharing it with the world is a treasure.
Winter knits her forest with frost, as the wind chimes of dreams once lost.
Winter is an old storyteller, and every aspect of her landscape is a piece of her. As she knits the fabric of her life, she knows that there have been dreams lost along the way. Never has she greeted summer—an impossible feat.
We all have dreams that go to the wayside. It’s okay to remember, and still know you did your best. Life is a journey, salted with successes and peppered with failures. They have grown you into your unique soul. So when the wind chimes of dreams once lost, listen. Then, believe in your path.
“That’s what winter is: an exercise in remembering how to still yourself then how to come pliantly back to life again.” ~Ali Smith
"I hold it true that thoughts are things...Endowed with bodies, breath and wings, And that we send them forth to fill, Our world with good results-or ill." ~Ella Wheeler Wilcox
"Words are instruments of music; an ignorant man uses them for jargon; but when a master touches them they have unexpected life and soul. Some words sound out like drums; some breathe memories sweet as flutes; some call like a clarionet; some show a charge like trumpets; some are sweet as children's talk; others rich as a mother's answering back."
Family, friends and home are the treasures that bring me the most pleasure. Through my blog, I wish to share part of my life and heart with readers.
