Animal Photography

A friend sent me an e-mail with the most amazing photographs of animals. It did not have a photographer’s name credited to the pictures. I wish I knew who was behind the lense for each of these. If you recognize any, let me know, okay?

They are too beautiful to keep to myself and to a few FB followers. Photography such as this is the trademark of true artists!

I need you, my dear WP friends,
to see these.
Sit back and enjoy!!

Google Your Symptoms


I sniffle and sneeze –
I cover cough and hide my wheeze;
No one needs these bugs.

My husband had it.
He generously shared it.
Thanks a lot, dear Bob!


Told my FaceBook friends-
They offered lots of advice:
Gargle. Honey. Rest.

I have tried them all.
The drippy nose continues.
Please pass the Kleenex!

Friends offer to help.
Invitations are declined.
Don’t want to spread this.

Snuggle up in bed
With the friend who doesn’t care
If you sneeze on him.

My TazE loves me
Whether I am sick or not.
Her kisses are free.

Sometimes I wonder
Where my dog gets all of them.
Wonder who’s kissing her now…

Hah!

Let your best friend comfort you.

Hang in there!!
Send prayers and flowers!
See ya later.

Hackers Waste Our Time

Hackers waste our time;
Don’t they have more productive
Ways to spend their time?

Today a scammer
Hacked my Facebook page and sent
Garbage to my friends.

S/He wasted my time
And the time of my friends, too.
Why not send out love?

If you have the brains
To figure out how to scam,
Why not do some good?

Use your brains for cheer.
Publish ways to improve life.
Reap Heavenly Gold!

Spend quality time
Enjoying celebrations!
Create joy instead.

Happy Birthday, Janet!

Exchange misery
For chances to increase joy.
Hackers are dead wood!

Grow in love and integrity!

Exchange your dead wood
For sweet natural beauty.
Honor your great brain!

Take a tip from Snoopy

Don’t waste precious life
Sending misery on-line.
Spread kindness instead.

Make Someone’s Day Better

Have you had trouble with scammers
or hackers on your computer?
How do you handle it?

It can be very disconcerting!

See ya tomorrow

You’re Responsible


You’re Responsible

Healing with Art is a Facebook page I follow. Often, like today, they post something so noteworthy that I cannot help but copy and share it. Here is my inspiration for today.

If I were still teaching, I would create a place in my classroom with a mirror and signs using this idea. And I would add “Contentment” under “Behavior.”

You're Responsible - Healing with Art-FB

Don’t you love it?
What word would you add to the list?

Don’t Keep It!


Here’s some very sound advice for today
and everyday:

I have a friend on FaceBook
Whose name is SassyLady
She posts some funny stuff,
But sometimes her posts are shady

But I love her sense of humor
And her posts of wise advice
Some are so very good
That I log into them twice.

Some are extra funny
Some are worth a listen
The one on top I took to heart
It’s an area I am remiss in.

I have stuff in my closet
That should be tossed, I know.
Heaven only knows why I keep it.
Today that stuff just has to go.

So, take a clue from this cutie:
If fabulous is not what you feel,
Get rid of it today…
Keep the terrific stuff – Get real!

Have a fun-filled, groovy day!

See ya tomorrow!

Tender Touch


Tender Touch

There’s nothing like a tender touch

To chase away the blues.

You need someone who really cares

Friends and family who choose

To stick by you through thick and thin –

To be there when you’re hurting –

To hold your hand and hug your heart

To lend a listening ear instead of skirting

Past the issues that weigh you down.

There’s nothing like a tender touch

To lift you up and bring you love

And show you that they care so much.

 

Love in Action

I used the wonderful photo below by¬†Kristin De Soto last weekend when writing about Being Pretty on the inside… and showing it with loving actions. I love the intergenerational nature of it … and the evidence of hard working DOING. Action… not just talking about it. TOUCH that lifts and supports.

The Need for Touch

In this month’s In Touch Magazine (Daily Readings for Devoted Living by Charles Stanley), on June 27th, the title was “The Touch That Transforms.” The devotional began with a reference to Matthew 8:1-4, the scripture that tells about Jesus’ touch healing the leper.

Charles Stanley wrote, “The need for touch from a fellow human being has not disappeared in the 2,000 years since Jesus walked the earth.”

And yet, the author continues, “Physical touch is being replaced with ‘likes’ on Facebook. And when we do think of touch, it’s often associated with scandal, impropriety, or immorality.” He asks us, “How did this wonderful word become so maligned?”

Operative Word: Tender

As I suggested in my Tender Touch poem above, it doesn’t have to be that way! The word “touch” does not need to bring shivers of fear or shadows of doubt. The operative word is TENDER!¬†

As followers of God, people who know and try to live by the Golden Rule, we have the opportunity to “touch” people in a variety of ways. We can use our hands, our talents, our time through service to exhibit compassion and encouragement. Our sincere hugs and our gentle pats on the back are signs that we truly care … and the recipients can feel it!

Keep it Simple

The touch of love doesn’t need to be expensive. Give the gift of caring. Keep it simple!

As bloggers, we can use our words to touch people’s hearts. Face-to-face is best, but sometimes that’s not possible. So, a card of sympathy, encouragement or inspiration, an e-mail to reach out, a phone call to just say “Hello, I was thinking of you. How are you?” or a text to show you’re thinking of them all are great ways to “touch” the loved ones we can’t reach physically.

Be a Part of the Solution

Here are some don’ts:

  • Don’t let physical touch be replaced with FaceBook “likes.”
  • Don’t let the word TOUCH become maligned and only associated with abuse.
  • Don’t shy away from reaching out to others in positive ways with the gift of touch.

And here are some do’s:

  • Tenderly reach out to those around you.
  • Touch others through prayer, knowing that God hears, and your loved ones will feel it!
  • Write or call those who are out of physical reach and let them know you care.

 

There’s nothing like a tender touch

To chase away the blues.

Bee the one who lifts and supports!

I’ve Been Thinking


Life is fragile!

On this day when another mass shooting occurred,
and 12 people were innocently shot down
in Thousand Oaks, CA,
we need this book,
“I’ve Been Thinking” by Maria Shriver.

A friend of mine, Gloria Wilson, shared a few pages from it on FaceBook.

The prayer below is one that resonated with me.
I hope it speaks to you,, too.

I am grateful for my faith
which helps me know for sure,
my future is in God’s hands.

God help us as a nation… as a world.

Help us to JUST LOVE ONE ANOTHER.
