Home alone with me, myself and I

Standard

Personal collection of M.A.Q.

 

Well, here I am. Staying at home. Like a good little girl.

Travelling from room to room, noticing things that I never actually ‘noticed’ before. Such as…


… That there are blah-blah tiles in the kitchen.

… That no matter how many times I open the fridge, fairy godmother isn’t going to gift me chocolates and ice cream.

… That the painting in the lounge is hanging crooked.

… That sweeping rooms is backbreaking. Totally.

… That when I am hungry, I, myself, must cook as ordering outside food is a big No-No.

… That I am playing Scrabble and Boggle most of the time. By myself.

… That I tend to video call my friends at odd times…. one chum was even in the shower. OMG.

… That dusting rooms is a daily task.

… That I mostly forward humorous posts on WhatsApp… basically to make myself laugh and smile.

… That I am becoming rather sick of receiving videos about the Coronavirus.

… That I love my family and friends. Most of all, I absolutely adore my grandchildren.

… That I endeavour to be positive, tossing aside negativity, and thus raising my spirits.

… That I am constantly thinking of the Almighty, while reciting His prayers.

… That I feel I have become a better person, by strengthening my faith.

… That I never take anything or anyone for granted anymore, but display enormous Gratitude.

… That I realise that what He really wants is for mankind to be more patient, tolerant, kind and compassionate.


“Enough is enough!” He declared;

“I am much greater than your arrogance, evilness and greed!” He thundered.


And, then…

He showed us all … by unleashing His almightiness, His supremacy, His invincibility.

… And man proved powerless, frail and weak.

Auld Lange Syne – 2018

Standard

 

What a lovely start to the new year! Happy thoughts of health, joy and compassion.

I am so grateful to welcome in yet another year to help me fulfil my oh-so-many hopes, dreams and aspirations. Thank You, O Lord.

Yes, indeed, a wonderful way to kick in 2018!

Whilst we celebrate this auspicious occasion, let us not forget family, friends, elderly, strangers, refugees, orphans, children, babies – every citizen of the world….no matter where they reside, and, regardless of their race, colour and creed.

Do extend a warm, loving handshake of peace and kindness. Embrace their hurt and shower them with love and affection. Remember, we are all God’s children, and, therefore, equal in His presence.

Pray!

Send a prayer out to those who are battling inner demons….may they feel the calm they so yearn for.

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

Pray for courage for those youngsters that are troubled by peer pressure…may they gain the confidence to stand tall and strong.

Amen!

Here, I would like to include my special thoughts….for you and the people of the world:

May God embrace you with His love and mercy;

May you enjoy good health and success;

May happiness be yours;

May all your dreams be realised;

And your hopes and wishes too;

May His light shine upon your home;

And keep you and your loved ones safe;

‘Tis the time for reconciliation;

A warm embrace; forgiveness, too;

Treasure old acquaintances;

Welcome new friends;

Cherish memories of the past;

Enjoy new experiences;

Have fun and celebrate your life;

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 in you a fierce determination.

Value health, it’s His greatest gift.

Breathe the air and be grateful;

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

And listen to the sound of the Joy of Life!

Accept bright challenges!

Welcome new responsibilities!

Dare to be remarkable!

Dare to be outstanding!

Dare to be positive!

And, above all..

Dare to be good!

May this year be your best one!

Thank you for being a part of my life.

Peace. God bless. Love and Light.

When the soul speaks, the heart listens

Standard

“The most painful tears are not the ones that fall from your eyes and cover your face. It’s the ones that fall from your heart and cover your soul.” ~ Author Unknown

When you are unable to open a new jar of jam. And you burst into tears. That’s okay.

When that beautiful bone china teacup slips from your hand and shatters into smithereens. And those tears pop up again. That’s okay.

When someone you wholeheartedly trust, wickedly betrays you. And you sob, bitterly, the tears just gushing out. That is, also, perfectly okay.

When, one day, feeling totally distraught, you happen to find yourself, all alone. And having to bear new responsibilities, both financially and emotionally, single-handedly – raising children, guiding them, advising them, being their rock – then weep if you must, but hang in there, tight.

Cry, oh, do cry! Oodles and oodles. Let the tears just flow. They are a part of the healing process.

Most importantly, tears are a language only God understands. He has heard the silent screams of your heart and soul. Indeed, you are not alone for He comprehends and, He is there beside you…always is and always will be.

Therefore, no matter what, do not despair!

For, once the tears have dried, and your vision is crystal clear, look above you. There’s that wonderful rainbow, beaming bright and cheerily, in all its glory. Yes! Just as He promised.

So, persevere and have faith. Keep that hope going strong. And… Trust in His timing, for His timing is perfect. Just let Him do His job!

And, believe me, do, when I tell you all this – for, I too, have been down that road. Yes, with my big bagful of tears. But I waited, though, I must confess, a wee bit impatiently, for that promised rainbow.

Today, with His grace, I stand before you, a much better, stronger, wiser, tolerant, and a more loving and compassionate human being.

So…

When the soul speaks, the heart listens. Keep peace in your soul, love in your heart and grace on your lips.

Love and Light. God bless.
