Dandelions

We are like dandelions blowing in the wind

Breaking free, scattered

Drifting but never really knowing our

True purpose in life

We settle wherever the wind blows

To a life of contentment

With fragments of light in the darkness

Which brings hope joy and happiness

Wishing for dreams that will come true

Where the fragments of light will

Overcome the darkness

Grow stronger like the dandelions

Firmly holding on refusing to be swept up

Wherever the wind blows

But rooted with a sense of purpose.

Free to LIVE

Live your lives like there are no

Tommorrows

Instead of drowning in your sorrows

Find the time 

Enjoy your passion

It’s more than time to take action

Life is short you never know

When we all will have to go

To a place we’ve never been

Live, Love, Laugh

Let’s all begin

 

 

Finding Pleasure

joshua-earle-252222Live your dreams

Change your reality

Heighten your senses

Find solace in hidden sanctuaries

of beauty and love

Gaze on the countless stars above

Get lost in the mysteries of our universe

Daydream of new life that exist beyond this world

Untold secrets and unspoken words

Pause

Find pleasure in everyday life

no matter how small the moments

Focus on what matters

Eliminate that which seeks to steal

your inner joy and prevent you from really

living the life you deserve.

 

Wake up!

Wake up!  It’s more than time to give thanks and praise

to our God who helps us in all our ways.

The season of giving and receiving unfolds,

so let us relax, go forth and be bold.

This holiday comes at the end of each year

So let us shout for joy and be clear

Wake up

Remember it’s all about our Lord and those

really in need,

so let’s forget about ourselves, there’s

no time for greed.

We keep giving to people who have more

than enough, come on look around

do you really need all that stuff?

Shopping for presents is a yearly tradition

Wake up

It’s time to change this compulsive condition

Stressing and frustrated from all the rush

Spending money we don’t have

until we’re crushed

Wake up

Living paycheck to paycheck to pay all the bills,

believe me when I tell you this is no thrill.

At the end of the year when you think

you’re ahead, the Santa syndrome

Hits you hard on the head

Christmas music entices you to

shop till you drop

As you shop for the season and you

Just want to stop.

Our lives are not defined by how much

we have, but how much one gives to those

who are sad.

Wake up

It’s time to change our obvious response

to a life filled with desires and wants

time to change our conclusion

Get out of this illusion

Place a limit on your family and friend giving

So you can really start living

Stay alert find the charities who are truly

Reaching out

Make a switch, change your life

Remember what life is really about.
