Recently I sensed you were already here and I wrote this…

Believe In New Beginnings by Ann Marquette

Believe In New Beginnings by Ann Marquette

 

Oh My Love

Who are you

Where are you

Already I feel your tender kiss

And you holding me close

I know your love

Beyond ever imagined

Who are you my love

Where are you

I am here waiting

Today … sharing this poem I wrote in 2004.

________________________________________

JUST A DREAM

Were you real, or
Just a dream…
One moment in time…
Only my imagination…

Suddenly you were here
alive and real, almost
then just as suddenly
you are gone

There was…
for a moment in time
something very special
something beyond description
between you and me,
then you are gone

We were so very connected
so much one spirit
so creatively of one mind
the feeling was so strong
or was it…

Just a dream…
One moment in time…
Only my imagination…

I am grateful for the blessing of special quiet time with God.   

My Favorite Spot by Ann Marquette

 

I have a dream, which I believe God has placed in my heart.  It has been a long time already waiting for the right circumstances for the dream to be fulfilled.  In the meantime I pray I am walking the right steps to fulfill what I need to do while I am where I am, and prepare me for the time I can step into the path of my dream.

 There have been tough times before and He has brought me through each one with loving kindness.  Throughout the years He has also gifted me with wonderful surprises beyond my wildest dreams.  He has gifted me with special joys in my life.  When I struggle with the questions of when, what, and how…I remember that He is preparing the best for me and I look forward to His next surprise, His next blessed gift.

 Make a list of what brings you joy and post it somewhere you will see it often.  When times get you down, look at the list and remember those times.  Do what you can to help yourself, do your best, help others when you can; and leave the rest to God who loves you unconditionally.

P.S. Today I took my SUV in to Toyota for the oil and filter change.  The management had a Thanksgiving feast for all their employees.  After the staff ate, one of the managers came into the waiting room and invited those of us waiting on our vehicles to help ourselves to lunch 🙂  It was good and a nice unexpected treat.

This is almost hilarious…today’s suggested topic from Word Press. This is beyond timely for me since I found THE place where I feel at HOME 4-5 years ago.

I need my house to sell for more than I owe and have enough cash (about $6,000) to make the relocation to another state possible. A few years ago I found THE place which keeps calling me HOME. I have been unable to sell my house even when I had it listed with an agent. With the current housing market I cannot afford to pay an agent so I will sell it on my own. I know it is a yukky housing market, but when the time is right it will happen.

I don’t want to rent because I want a clean break from it, and renting would not give me the money I need to move. I don’t want to be a landlord. My goal is starting the rest of my life over fresh and clean and new.

My heart aches for the years I have waited, and now continue waiting to be able to move to the place – not where I am originally from – but, the place I found which keeps calling me HOME.

In some of my readings and musings today, my thoughts turned to experiences in my life and lessons learned.
I started jotting down my thoughts, and as I did, I realized that with each one the word BELIEVE came to mind.

 Letting go of control…BELIEVE
 Remembering some of the most amazing surprises in my life, which were beyond my wildest imaginings and still amaze me today…BELIEVE FOR MORE
 Allowing others to help me, and sometimes remembering to let them know how they can help me. Then Let Go and Let God guide the process…BELIEVE those who are meant to help will and in the right way.
 BELIEVE in the dreams of m heart, the ones that never let go.
 BELIEVE in myself that I can accomplish what needs to be done to follow the path to my dreams becoming reality.

Whenever I feel concerned about what is happening in our country and how it is affecting me, I remember my blessings and all I have to be grateful for. I also remember the other tough times in my life which I have come through, and the many wonderful surprises I have experienced. I know I am a child of God and that He loves me unconditionally, and all is well. What brings me extra joy is hearing good things happening for others, whether getting a job, their health getting better, among other things. I have been hearing good things since the beginning of the year. So no matter what there is hope for better times ahead.

Path over cherry trees. (Jerte's Valley)

Cherry trees

Ah, the blessings of spring
They bring renewed hope
A joyful new outlook on life
The heart’s dream of everlasting love
The trees are dressed in beautiful blossoms
Flowers emerging from a renewed earth
Birds singing in the trees
Bringing smiles to a winter weary heart A windy sunny afternoon
Sounds of rustling trees and wind chimes
Clears the cobwebs of the mind
Bringing joy to the soul
Yes, the blessings of spring
Fill my heart with hope
My soul with excitement of surprises to come
My spirit with everlasting love

A fairy offering wishes, illustration by John ...

A fairy offering wishes, illustration by John Bauer

Oh sure, I guess most of us would say money. Not me.

My magic tree grows various flowers and hidden within bunches of flowers are happy hearts, happy faces, and hugs.

As I move through the world and find those in need of a special bouquet of flowers with a happy heart, a happy face, and hug I take notes for when I get home.

Then I send my wee ambassadors out with just the right bouquet for each person. You see, my magic tree also has a special land underneath where my fairy friends live and they like helping me with the gifting.

What does your magic tree grow?

Malpe Beach

Ocean View

One of the PostADAy suggested topics: “What is your dream vacation?” Here is one of mine.

The first dream vacation which comes to mind would be staying in a lovely cottage a little up from the beach overlooking the ocean. Each morning I would have my coffee on the porch as I watch the sun come up. Later I would take a long walk along the beach, stopping occasionally to sit and look at the view. What a special delight when I see some dolphins, whales, and seals. I love hearing the water splashing the shore. After awhile I would continue my walk, sometimes collecting special sea shells.

What a beautiful and inspirational time to let my mind wander as it opens to whatever visions appear for the next poem or story. Then…

Back at the cottage I would again sit on the big rocking chair porch with a pad of paper and pen to write down the inspirations I collected during my walk. I stop long enough to have a little lunch, then back to writing again. A few hours later I stop writing for the day and make preparations for a light dinner, which will be enjoyed at the café table and chairs at one end of the porch, with a glass of wine.

As the afternoon turns to evening and the sun is heading slowly to the horizon I take a short stroll along the beach. I return to the cottage, put on some easy listening music. Since it gets pretty cool in the evening I start a fire in the fireplace and curl up in a big chair with a cup of hot chocolate. A wonderful end to a beautiful day.
