Dandelions

dandelion-1931080_1280

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.

Tomorrow

732861-1

We don’t know what tomorrow will bring

whether sunshine or rain.

Holding our breath, consumed and concerned, silently.

Our world is moving faster and faster where technology reigns.

We look ahead trying to grasp all the changes yet

running trying to keep up, slipping, existing and moving at a slower pace.

 

 

 

 

It’s easier said than done

anna-dziubinska-348It’s easier said than done,

Life is not always easy when you’re constantly on the run.

There are people who are extremely successful living their dreams

Making millions of dollars, it’s hard so it seems

But as you know, it’s easier said than done

As you search for answers, you must understand

Nothing will ever happen if you don’t have a plan

So reach for the sky if that is your wish

But realize in life there is always a twist

It’s easier said than done

Believe and get what you want out of life and know in your heart it’s going to take time

However just be careful where you step it’s a serious climb

It’s easier said than done

So what don’t you worry of the challenges that may come your way

Life is hard and sometimes stormy but there is coming a day

Regardless of the problems that you’ll leave behind

Guess what things will change bare that in mind

It’s easier said than done

You have to know what you want out of life even if it’s hard to explore

That’s the only way you’ll soar

Have the ability to put things into perspective

Search and reach for the stars and go introspective

It’s easier said than done

Ask yourself the most serious question when you contemplate your life’s direction

It takes faith and belief as you get to that intersection

I know and understand it’s easier said than done

Acknowledge God is your strength, you can’t do it alone

Our God in Heaven who sits on His thrown

That’s the answer that you can’t ignore

Otherwise life would be a terrible bore

Because when you focus on this life, it’s never easier said than done.

Picking Pockets

 

picking pockets

We are all dependent to some degree

There are some people struggling to break free

Picking other people’s pockets to support their lifestyle

Using their money rather than your own meanwhile

You got paid, now you’re broke

Using every penny while you joked

Now you will continue to use other folks

You’re robbing Peter to pay Paul

And you will continue to fall

The things in life which really mattered, you ignored

While living on the edge because you were bored

Now the debt collector is ringing and knocking at your door

But guess what, now you’re poor

Simply put, it’s time to pay up

But now you’re holding an empty cup

Picking other people’s pockets

It’s a crying shame

If you keep up this lifestyle, you’ve lost the game

You see the game of life is a complicated one

So you can’t live your whole life, living on the run.

Learn to be independent so you can be free

It’s a fact of life that will help you to live more carefree.
