Magic of Love

 

Life And All Of Its Beauty

The future is too far away to dream of.
The past is too far behind to dwell on.Image result for life and its beauty
The world is too big to go unnoticed.
Nature is too beautiful to be passed by.

The present was meant to be lived in.
The world was meant to be cared for.
Nature was meant to be appreciated.
Life was meant to be enjoyed.

Love the present,
Love the world,
Love nature,
Love life.

A Golden Chain

Friendship is a Golden Chain,
The links are friends so dear,
And like a rare and precious jewel
It’s treasured more each year…

It’s clasped together firmly
With a love that’s deep and true,
And it’s rich with happy memories
and fond recollections, too…

Time can’t destroy its beauty
For, as long as memory lives,
Years can’t erase the pleasure
That the joy of friendship gives…

For friendship is a priceless gift
That can’t be bought or sold,
But to have an understanding friend
Is worth far more than gold…

And the Golden Chain of Friendship
Is a strong and blessed tie
Binding kindred hearts together
As the years go passing by.

God’s Greatness

 

God is beauty and splendour,
Awesome and magnificentuntitled
He’s fill of awesome wonder
And is wholly omnipotent

 

But despite God’s greatness,
He always has time for us,
Nothing is too great or small
That He won’t want to touch

 

So praise Him for His greatness
And everything He is,
But also for the little things
That we so often miss.

The Day I Fell in Love

The day my eyes opened I realized the sun shone everyday
The beauty of the sunrise in the morning filled my heart with joy
The magnificent sunset moments in the evening, lifted my spirit
The fresh breath of falling waters, made me smile inwardly6359525320671471051216021347_love
Birds humming sweetly took my heart afar to Sweetland and I rejoiced

I looked then I saw, the beauty I never realized as each day passed
Moments with the nature bonded me with the Creator
I comprehended the one who created for He is greater than I
I laughed joyfully as I walked on the grass and mingled with the nature
Fresh drops of water touched my feet, the feeling made me cry of joy
How could I have not seen and known all this beauty before?

Days became sweet to me, nothing else mattered so much except You
The times we shared together in our secret place built me
I took heed of Your Word and kept your statutes in my heart so I may not depart from You

I keep the Word   from you so I may do things your way and be successful
When I opened up to You, You gave me the reason to live
Life with you is good, so good, I just have to share it with others around

Waking up and listening to sweet hymns from the birds makes my day
Waking up and smelling the fresh breath of the day, makes me spread my arms and fly

Waking up and knowing that You have granted me yet another day, blesses my soul

Take my hand and let me not depart from You oh Lord
When I gave my heart to You , all things opened up for me
That’s the day I fell in love with You

After Suffering comes…

Scripture Text: John 16: 17-33  Hebrews 12:2

As we approach  and prepare for the most glorious day of Easter.  Many will be decorating Easter eggs, baskets, and buying new dresses and suits.  Yes, this is most definitely a time to celebrate our Savior. For He has done great and marvelous things for us!

Yet, with all of the preparations, I am reminded of why we celebrate.  The awful pain that Jesus endured for us on that hill at Golgotha, and the pain that we as followers oftentimes endure too.

Just before Jesus went to the cross, He told His followers they were about to go through a time of great pain and sorrow.  The Lord compared their coming experience to that of a woman during childbirth when her anguish turns to joy after her child is born. michael journal

With me giving birth to beautiful children myself, I can most assuredly relate to the pain that accompanies natural childbirth and the joy that follows.

With that in mind, we can all expect that sorrow will come to us all along the road of life.   Jesus endured the cross for us, and in return those who open their hearts to Him, receive forgiveness, redemption and freedom.

His grueling sacrifice accomplished God’s eternal purpose of opening the way to fellowship and friendship with Him, that could not have been obtained any other way. The joy of our Savior outweighed His suffering, just as the joy He gives to us overshadows our pain. No, when we are going thru the pain, we don’t see the joys being produced in and through us.

So as we prepare for this most holy day, may we be mindful that the pain that our Savior endured and the pain that we at times will endure too, won’t last always.

Joy returns after the process, and the sun will shine again!

Love is……

Love is like magic
And it always will be.
For love still remains
Life’s sweet mystery!!
Love works in ways
That are wondrous and strange
And there’s nothing in life
That love cannot change!!
Love can transform
The most commonplace
Into beauty and splendor
And sweetness and grace.
Love is unselfish,
Understanding and kind,
For it sees with it’s heart
And not with it’s mind!!
Love is the answer
That everyone seeks….
Love is the language,
That every heart speaks.
Love can’t be bought,
It is priceless and free,
Love, like pure magic,
Is life’s sweet mystery!!

Sunshine In A Smile

imagesKW069SJ9.jpgLife is a mixture of sunshine and rain,
Laughter and pleasure, tear-drops and pain;
All days can’t be bright, but it’s certainly true,
There was never a cloud the sun didn’t shine through.
So just keep on smiling whatever betide you,
Secure in the knowledge God is always beside you.
And you’ll find when you smile your day will be brighter
and all your burdens will seem so much lighter.
For each time you smile you will find it is true
SOMEBODY, SOMEWHERE will smile back at YOU!
And nothing on earth Can make life more worthwhile
than the sunshine and warmth of a BEAUTIFUL SMILE
