Night sky with moon and clouds, in Thailand (f...

Night sky

Interesting to look back at some of my writings from a few years ago. Sometimes I wonder where my mind was then 🙂

I leave the world in my room to feel the soft fresh breeze of night, under the stars and in the light of the full moon. I walk the path through the trees and find my way to the water’s edge. There is an almost quiet flow of the river tonight. The reflection of the moon over the water creates a magical, peaceful, reflective mood. There is no one here but me and the night, and the trees whispering sweet nothings to the rippling river flowing by, and the fireflies flicker their messages to each other.

I am at peace with myself, and my thoughts scatter on the wind to flow through the universe. They call to you, to tell you that my heart is waiting patiently for you. They tell you that my arms are lonely for you, that I long to see your face, to hear your voice, to touch you. Yet, though I wish so deeply for you to be here by my side, to share our lives together, I know it will be worth the waiting.

Why is it the good things, happy times, magic moments come and go so quickly and the times in between seem so very long. I thank God for my nature friends to share these times with. What would I do without them.

I will walk a ways along the river’s edge, in the direction the river is flowing and imagine I am one with her, yet floating just barely above her soft cool water. I meld my soul with the river for a time, to understand, to feel. I spend some time this way.

Once back on land and resting against a great oak tree I feel refreshed and renewed. My tree holds me and enjoys the comfort of my peacefulness. I look up at the night sky with the stars twinkling, and watch the moon watching me.

Moonlight becomes you
Moonlight becomes you

Another beautiful day of sunshine
Another lovely moonlit night

I feel like fine aged wine
Beside my loving Knight

A carnival glass vase.

Empty Vase

I give it all to you, Lord Jesus
This mind
This soul
This heart
The spirit within
I am letting go

Letting it all go
All the muddled thoughts
All the mixed emotions
All the confused feelings
Too much, too many
Have scarred the very essence
Of this being

I give to you
This empty vessel
This blank slate
For you to make it new
For you to fill it up
Fill it to overflowing
With Your goodness
Your grace
Your light
Your love

Write what you will
On this blank slate
That is me
Waiting to be cleansed
And renewed
With Your Spirit, Lord Jesus

Where has it gone
My inspiration
Where are they now
The words

It’s like the heart
The soul and spirit
Have been put to rest
Gone into hibernation

Holy Spirit stir my being
From this slumber awaken me
Fill my heart with song
My soul with your love

Infuse my spirit
With your inspiration
Guide my hand
In the writing of the words

May the writings shared
Encourage and inspire
Bring joy and cleansing tears
Healing to mind, heart, and spirit.

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.

The Gates photo by Ann Marquette taken in Ireland 1982

These are the Gates to my Home,
and my Heart…
You are welcome to enter, both
as Family and/or Friend.
The keys to unlocking the gates
are kindness, peacefulness,
and love…within yourself.
Once you enter…let us always
be gentle with, considerate of,
and loving to each other. These
will allow us to feel at Home
in our hearts and in
God’s presence.
Upon departing, or retiring for
the night…let us always do so
in peace with each other, with
a hug, and a prayer in our
hearts that all mankind may
someday feel the same.
May God Bless and Protect all
who enter These Gates.

I decided to follow-up on my Thursday post My Heart Hurts…
https://amarquette333.wordpress.com/2011/05/12/my-heart-hurts-and-cries-out%e2%80%a6/
Friday morning in one of my readings “Never Judge” where the last paragraph says “How can one judge of another? ……………… Bring each heart to Me, its Maker, and leave it with Me. Secure in the certainty that all that is wrong I can set right.”

How many times each day do we judge each other, even in small ways. We forget that we do not know where the other person has been in their lives, what they have been through, how their lives and environments have affected them. Even those people we think we know, we don’t REALLY know what is going through their minds, emotions, spirit, their HEARTS. It takes time to truly get to KNOW another person’s background and their heart.

How does your heart feel…about life these days?
What is your dream for our country, and your personal dream?

I would love to hear from you. In the meantime, let your heart light shine.

House key

House Key Image via Wikipedia

I wrote this a couple of years ago for a friend.

You have been gone so long
I have been empty without you
I have been waiting for you.

I sense you are on the way
I stand strong and eager
I await your return.

I know the moment
Your feet step onto my porch
Your hand puts the key in my door
Your hand turns the knob
And then the moment
You step inside the heart of me
I know you are home.

You are my soul
Your loving hands made me
The way I am today
Your heart loves and cares for me.

I have missed you
Missed your footsteps
As you walk my floors
I waited to hold you
Safe and warm
Within my walls.

And now
You are Home.

Signed ~
Your house, Your Home

Each new day ~ even if it is raining
I wish you to see sunshine and flowers

Every night ~ even if cloudy skies
I wish you see only star light and moon glow

Each day ~ especially if you feel down
I wish you a special visitor
A humming-bird, a butterfly to make your
Heart Smile

Anytime ~ if you feel alone
I wish you the unmistakable feeling
Of a hug from Jesus

Always I wish you unlimited Heart Smiles

New Start by Ann Marquette

A great day began with blue skies and sunshine, when it was expected we would have rain this morning.

A friend who recently had two stints put in her heart’s clogged artery was told by her cardiologist, after doing an echocardiogram, he didn’t think her heart doing as well as it should and that she needed to have a defibrillator implanted. He referred her to a specialist surgeon who does these implants at Emory Hospital. I took her this morning and after meeting with him she came out smiling. He advised that she may not need one of these devices. It has not been three months yet since her stints were put in, and apparently it takes that long for the heart to start doing much better. He will see her again the end of April and do another echocardiogram to see how she is doing then. Ah thank you God for this hopeful good news.

While waiting at the doctor’s office for this friend, I did some reading of the inspirational kind. Hope and joy fills my heart when I read the stories of other’s coincidence experiences which changed their lives for the better.

Great time to rekindle A Blank Slate within myself to begin anew with hope, confidence, faith, and excitement for surprises to come https://amarquette333.wordpress.com/2010/09/17/a-blank-slate/  

Happiness is ~ Heart Smiles, and I have one right now. Do you?
I wish you many Heart Smiles https://amarquette333.wordpress.com/2011/02/20/what-made-your-heart-smile-today-or-any-day/
