The room is too small for the people clapping for you,
My garden is definitely too small,
Come to think of it the park is small too,
We are too far apart to be in close proximity,
So let’s continue standing where we are to clap for each other,
Giving a standing ovation to all of us,
Because despite trials and tribulations,
We have come through to end of year,
Blogging through the year,
Where ever our starting line was,
We persevered as wordsmiths.
We encouraged and supported,
We pondered and questioned,
We disagreed and agreed,
We learnt and taught,
We met wonderful people,
Interesting ones too.
Authors, Guest Authors,
Change makers, Friends,
Here’s your Standing Ovation.
A retreat cleanses your body,
A retreat cleanses your mind,
Enables your soul to be cleansed,
Enables your spirit to be cleansed,
In the scheme of things it feels fresh,
In the bounty of life we start afresh,
Open your heart let your prayer flow,
Open your eyes and let your vision glow,
Unity of your senses awaken,
Unity of your purpose not to be taken.
How festive did you get?
Was it at the office party?
Did you need to drink to be festive?
What about the games and laughter?
Could they have been even more intoxicating?
Which of the two brought happy tears to your eyes?
Or tickled you into a doubled up laughter?
Charades, charades, charades.
What a bountiful precious gift,
To have the love of God Our Father,
We celebrate His immense generosity,
In the person of Our Lord Jesus Christ,
Who brought us the Good News.
Discover your gifts,
No one will search for them,
Discover your faults,
No one will know them,
The calm of the sea was deceiving because the currents underneath, where our eyes didn’t reach was very fast. As we struggled to swim to the shore a family of dolphins came by and helped us. Nudging us with their noses, it tickled but it was no time to laugh rather a time to be grateful and we truly were. What an act of love and caring and we can learn a lot from this.
My enthusiasm for reading knew no bounds, the teenage period especially was a time used to read lots and lots of novels. I have encouraged many family and friends to read. Sometimes I imagine my books still in my school trunk and wonder what state they are in. One day I’ll find out and tell you.
