Goodbye to an Icon…Whitney Houston

‎’GOD did not plan for any of Us to Live Forever. Death is a part of the process and HE allows Us to see or hear of it Daily. It’s a Sad day and a Shock when anyone passes on. And, One that was an Icon or Celebrity Saddens and Shocks so many because of their influence and reach that was so widespread…

A few hours ago We learned of the passing of a Beloved Celebrity and Talent, Whitney Houston and We ALL shared in a Moment of Pain learning of her Passing. She will be Greatly Missed by many and Always remembered…

Death will come to Us ALL in due time so, Live the BEST Life You can Right Now and do ALL that You can in Your Power to not press upon Your Life anything that could possibly shorten it.

To You, Whitney…We’ll Miss You and like You sang in Your song and like I Always say…’LOVE…It’s the GREATEST of ALL!’

DIG by INCUBUS

(This is My post for Today while I wait for INSPIRATION to tap Me on the shoulder and She tells Me what to Write next…Read the Words and Think about them…They are Truly Deep…)
DIG  by INCUBUS
We all have a weakness
But some of ours are easy to identify.
Look me in the eye
And ask for forgiveness;
We’ll make a pact to never speak that word again.
Yes, you are my friend.
We all have something that digs at us, At least we dig each other. So when weakness turns my ego up
I know you’ll count on the me from yesterday.
If I turn into another…
Dig me up from under what is covering
The better part of me.
Sing this song Remind me that we’ll always have each other
When everything else is gone.
We all have a sickness
That cleverly attaches and multiplies
No matter how we try. We all have someone that digs at us,
At least we dig each other. So when sickness turns my ego up
I know you’ll act as a clever medicine.
If I turn into another
Dig me up from under what is covering
The better part of me.
Sing this song!
Remind me that we’ll always have each other
When everything else is gone.
Oh! each other when everything else is goneIf I turn into another
Dig me up from under what is covering
The better part of me.
Sing this song
Remind me that we’ll always have each other
When everything else is gone.
Oh! Each other when everything else is gone
Oh! Each other when everything else is gone
Oh! Each other when everything else is gone
My Friend…If You are in a relationship that is Important to You and You LOVE the individual that You  are involved with, I TRULY Hope that when Everything else is Gone the Two of You will…’Still Have Each Other…’ Because, that is ALLL that Truly Matters…

Your Sky…Is It Limited?

Your Sky…Is It Limited?

“Ellie, where do we go Now?”

                                                -Mr. Fredrickson ‘UP’

 

“The Skkkyyyyyyyyyy is the Limit…”

                                                -Tony, Toni, Tone

If we look up at the Sky we notice that it goes on and on and that it is never-ending. The more Sky you look at, the more Sky you see. Whether we look straight up, whether we look to the Right, whether we look to the Left or whether we look forward or behind us, the Sky goes on and on. The Daytime Sky, with its Azure backdrop, dotted with white clouds. The Nighttime Sky, with its Onyx veil, Stars flung across it like Diamonds. The Sky is never-ending whether it’s Day or Night.

As human beings we know the Sky to be unlimited with its shear expanse and size and we look overhead and marvel at it daily, its Beauty and Majesty but do we really take note of its limits when we utter the words, ‘The Sky is the Limit,’ when we speak of setting out on endeavors or goals that we have set for ourselves. All of us, have at one time or another, spoken these words to ourselves or to others to express that there are no limits to the things we can accomplish in our lives but how many of us truly believe this?

I feel that this statement is made in the present day with little thought of its TRUE power and the strength within it. Many people set out on tasks or endeavors saying that ‘The Sky is the Limit’ but as time goes on and things don’t seem to pan out or happen in the time that they want it to happen, they forget the size of the Sky and the power in the statement.

If we would only remember that the Sky is unlimited and that it never ends, we would remember that when saying that ‘The Sky is the Limit,’ the limits to where we can go and the things we can do…Never End. The statement, ‘The Sky is the Limit’ truly means that there is no limit to where we can go or the things we can do because the Sky has no limits but we tend to get a case of amnesia and forget the fact that the Sky’s end is unreachable and we give up on our being UNLIMITED.

‘The Sky is the Limit’ is a Mantra that everyone should live by and always remember because when it comes to our lives and what we can do, there truly is No Limit. It takes Courage, Confidence, Heart, Bravery, Perseverance, Endurance, Patience, the Ability to ‘Look like a Fool,’ BIG Faith, Prayer and Belief that GOD is at work in our lives but if we can do this and run the race without ‘fainting,’ ‘The Sky…Truly is the Limit!’

My Friend…Look up…’Your Sky…Is It Limited?’

That Childhood Magic…

That Childhood Magic…

“All My Friends…Are longing for the Warmth of Childhood to bring ‘em Home again…”

                                                                        -Amos Lee  ‘All My Friends’

 

I have pondered this for quite a while now and during Great conversation with that Special Woman in My Life on yesterday the topic came up once again. We were discussing the ‘heat’ and ‘humidity’ of the Summer and wondering why as Children we were able to play outside ALL day long and never give any thought to how HOT or humid it was. As children, we were ALL too Happy to be outside, able to run free and be with our friends doing what we LOVED most, PLAYING but as we grew older, from children to teens to adults the ‘heat’ and the ‘humidity’ became more apparent to us and we somehow lost that ‘magic’ of being a Child, playing and being totally free and began to realize how HOT it was outside and simply gave up on having Fun and really enjoying life.

I think about the above and I notice that it is not only the ‘Magic of Playing’ that we as adults have lost in our ADULTNESS but a lot of us have lost the ‘Magic of Childhood’ in every area of our lives. We have become adults and we feel that we have had to put ALL child-like things behind, bury them in the ground as if they are deceased but we should hold on to as much of our ‘CHILDLIKENESS’ as we can so as not to forget how to play, how to live free, how to enjoy life with no worries of what others will think of Us, so as not to live in FEAR.

If we sit back and watch children and how they operate we would learn so much from them and also be reminded of what we gave up or left behind to become Adults. I watch how children play and use their imaginations, becoming anything that they want to be in their minds, having FUN the entire time, having no thoughts of what others think about them or how foolish they may look, it’s ALL about the moment and enjoying it to the fullest extent. I watch how children interact with one another when they meet or come into contact with each other. There is no sizing up of the other. There is no wondering of what the other child’s motives are. There is no stand-offish attitude. There is only, ‘Let’s be friends! Let’s play! Let’s have FUN together!’ And after their play is done they continue to be Friends.

I feel that we as adults should re-adopt these ‘CHILD-LIKE’ ways or ideals and allow ourselves to be open enough to enjoy life and be free again. Whether we admit it or not, most of what we do as adults is only a seeking for that ‘Childhood Magic’ that we left behind. All of the ‘things’ that we gather for ourselves to be accepted by others, all of the accolades that we garner to be acknowledged by others, all of the intelligence or ‘smarts’ that we gain, are ALL a seeking for that ‘Childhood Magic.’

If we look back, as children we did not need any of those things to be accepted or feel like we would be accepted or to accept others. All we needed or had to offer was the ability or the freedom to want to ‘play’ and have ‘fun’ with other children and life was GREAT!

GOD is sending messages through the children for us to pick up on so that we as adults will remember the way we are supposed to enjoy and live our lives and remind us of what we were placed here for in the first place, to remind us of how we should not take life so seriously, how we should always take time to PLAY, use our Imaginations, DREAM huge DREAMS, LOVE openly and definitely have ‘CHILD-LIKE FAITH!’

Adults…Let’s be Adults but let’s not lose the ‘Magic of Childhood’ in the process. The Children have the Magic and they know the Secret…Watch them. You will learn…

SERENDIPIDOUS…

SERENDIPIDOUS

ser·en·dip·i·ty    (s r n-d p -t )NOUN:
pl.
ser·en·dip·i·ties

  1. The faculty of making fortunate discoveries by accident.
  2. The fact or occurrence of such discoveries.
  3. An instance of making such a discovery.

I LOVE the idea of ‘Making fortunate discoveries by accident,’ those discoveries or Amazing Happenings that we seem to ‘happen’ upon by ‘accident’ or by CHANCE. I myself do not believe that these occurrences of SERENDIPTY are accidents, I feel that they are Divine steps in our journeys, lead by GOD. I believe that GOD places these SERENDIPIDOUS occurrences in our lives for us to take account of and share with others to open their minds to the things that they miss as they move through life.

Being a Writer/Poet, I feel that GOD guides me to SERENDIPIDOUS occurrences or happenings daily because, with this, I am able to write about or remind others about the Beauty and Amazing things of our World and ALL of the Great things that HE has provided for us. It’s Great!

When you ‘happen’ upon Amazing, Unimaginable things by ‘accident,’ things that move you beyond your imagination, whether it be a Sunrise, a Sunset, a Smile, a Night Sky filled with a brilliant Moon and bright Stars… Whether it be a Word of enlightenment, a gesture of LOVE, lyrics in a Song or Poem, that look of admiration from another or the feeling of the presence of GOD… Know that it is not an ACCIDENT….It is SERENDIPITY…Divine guidance by GOD that HE meant for you to experience and share with others.

My Friend, its SERENDIPITY…
