What a lovely start to the new year! Happy thoughts of health, joy and compassion. I am so grateful to welcome in another year to help me fulfil my oh-so many hopes, dreams and aspirations. Thank You!

Indeed, yes, a wonderful way to kick in 2017… Sparkle! Bloom!

As we celebrate, let us remember family, friends, strangers, children, babies – all citizens of the world, no matter where they reside, regardless of race, colour and creed. Extend a warm, loving handshake of peace and kindness. For we are all God’s children.

Send a prayer out to those who are battling inner demons…may they find the calmness they are searching for.

Pray for….

…strength for those struggling with health issues…may they discover comfort and ease.

…courage for youngsters who are troubled by peer pressure…may they gain the confidence to stand tall.

Amen.

Here, I would like to include my special thoughts … Being sent out to everyone…

May God embrace you with His love and mercy.

May you enjoy good health and success.

May happiness be yours.

May your dreams be realised,

And your hopes and wishes too.

May His light shine upon your home,

To keep you and your loved ones safe.

Amen.

‘Tis the time for reconciliation,

A warm embrace and forgiveness too.

Treasure old acquaintances,

Welcome warmly new friends.

Cherish memories of the past!

Enjoy new experiences.

Have fun and celebrate!

Life is like a tapestry of magnificence..

That is interwoven with precious family and friends.

Allow compassion for everyone, young and old alike

Be strong in sorrow and steadfast in trials,

Let not setbacks discourage, but rather stir up fierce determination.

Value health, it’s His greatest gift.

Breathe the air and be thankful;

Thankful for the sense of sight, smell, taste, touch

And listen to the sound of the Joy of Life!

Accept the challenges,

Shoulder new responsibilities.

Dare to be remarkable!

Dare to be positive!

And, above all… Dare to be good!

May 2017 be your best new year.

Thank you for being a part of my life.

Peace. Love. Light.

God bless.

My “Happy Tree”

Life is wonderful, indeed; ’tis fantastic fun;
Glorious, cheery blessings…yes, for everyone.

Indoor, my cup, O Lord, it runneth over
Gushing with Your loving grace and power.

So, there I go, outdoor, and in the garden
I plant my happy “Happy Tree” – Amen!

This tree I have, for all to see,
I call it mine, the “Happy Tree”.

And on its branches twining,
I hang my blessings swirling, twirling.

The love that dwells inside my heart,
I drape around the tree, to start.

Countless “thank You’s” from my mind
Around the boughs I gently wind.

Like bright, shiny tinsel strands
My eyes place rainbow beauty bands.

The good I hear, and wise advice,
I display with pride, my bumper prize.

I feel a feel, a blissful feel
About my tree, my “Happy Tree”.

Life’s all about love, light and joy,
Peace, contentment, for us to enjoy.

So, thank You, Lord, I wish to express..
Deep gratitude for all You bless!

Grateful for the blessings

Grateful I am for the blessings! Life is packed with them, look around you. Certainly, His grace surrounds us. Pause. Reflect. Observe.

I am grateful for the sunshine in my garden. The flowers are blooming and prove His wondrous ways by which He blesses us.

This flower is just one of my many, many blessings. Note its beauty, its magnificence and its shape.

Blessings come in different ways. Think about it. Ponder a while. Become aware. And be thankful.

I am grateful for even the ups and downs for they have made me the person I am. The lows have strengthened my faith and made me a better person. The highs have made me humble and I bow in gratitude to the Almighty.

Yes, I am grateful. Grateful for…

my parents

my sister

my brother

my aunts

my uncles

my nephews

my nieces

my cousins

my friends

and last but not least, I am so, so very grateful for my children…my darling daughter and my darling son. May God forever bless you and keep you safe.

I am indeed blessed!

Thank You, God.

12.12.12

Today is 12.12.12 –  the last of the repeating dates this century. People the world over are celebrating this significant date, and commemorating it with special events. But one boy has something extra special to celebrate.

Corey Smith will celebrate a momentous coincidence as he turns 12 at 12 today – 12.12.12. Born in 2000 at 12 noon, this young boy awaits the incredulous moment. Wow.

As we make note of this day, let us take a minute to reflect on life. Young or old, we are happy to be alive. We are thankful to Him for this day…for all the blessings we have enjoyed. Certainly, we are grateful for even the ups and downs because they have made our journey all the more interesting.

Adversities make us stronger. The knocks and tumbles are there to steer us and direct us in the right direction. Friends and family give us the love and support to help us overcome such obstacles. We give gratitude for our parents…God bless them for their unconditional love.

With strong faith and deep trust in Him, hurdles are cleared and barriers broken down. We need not worry for an answer to our prayers. Just have patience and always remember He is near: “Trust in My timing for My timing is perfect. Just let Me do My job.” When the moment is right, it will happen.

Agreed, the climb can be tough; the tumble, rough. All the waiting and being patient is too trying. But getting through it all is reason enough to celebrate the new YOU – the more confident, capable and compassionate YOU. Compassionate? Yes. Since after having experienced similar trials and tribulations, one becomes more understanding and caring of others’ feelings.

On this day, let the universal spirit of togetherness unite everyone, irrespective of caste, colour or creed and let there be more tolerance, patience and forgiveness in the world.

Today, may you have luck and laughter on your side; may health and happiness be yours, and, if it snows, go out and build yourself a merry little snowman – Happy 12.12.12!

Beneath the Boughs

Beneath the Boughs

Beneath the boughs here I sit,

Watching the waters stream by

Jagged rocks dot yon river bed,

Yet the waters ripple on.

Winding, meandering, undeterred,

Directly on their way, they go.

Discouraged not, nor wearied,

As o’er stony hurdles, they flow.

For, like us, these waters do move onward,

Celebrate YOU!

Standard

Covered with fluff and dust upon a shelf rests the list of New Year resolutions, its page yellowing with age. It is a stark reminder of all our hopes and dreams for the new year. Ah, how we aspired to achieve them!

‘The year is half over now,’ you sadly state. Wistfully, together with a tinge of guilt, you whisper ‘if only…’ and ‘I wish I had…’

Time has a way of moving swiftly and catching you unawares. But fear not, it’s not too late. You can still accomplish what you set out to do. All you need is perseverance, determination and a deep faith in yourself. Keep this important point in mind—you are a GIFT to the world.

So forget the regret, and, today, begin anew.

Firstly, take a stock of yourself. Look in the mirror. What do you see?

The Path of Life 

May your Path of Life be happy and merry,

may it be smooth, straight and enjoyable.

May the sun shine ever so brightly,

may you glow with radiance along the way.

May the morning dew shimmer and sparkle

like precious jewels of good fortune.

The powerful date of 11.11.11

Positive Thoughts

Today, no matter where I went or what I read, the figures 11.11.11 stood out. There they were, standing there most predominantly, as if screaming blue murder, demanding to be noticed. Yes, they got me, well and proper.

Furthermore, a beautiful photograph beckoned my attention. The butterfly. The flower. Put together, they formed a poetic image of life. Ah, very lovely indeed!

11.11.11. I am mesmerized by this number. According to Positive Thoughts, they numerically indicate that it is a time where the energies of the planets are aligning us to connect with the Divinity within…to connect into our heart and soul’s longing.

It symbolises the time for us to rid ourselves of all negative emotions, such as greed, control, fear and judgment, etc. We must let go of them, set them free.
