Valentine Flowers from my brother photo by Ann Marquette

I am grateful for my brother in my life, and it was so sweet of him to get me flowers for Valentine’s Day last week.  His thoughtfulness brought a smile to my heart and joy to my spirit.

Today is Ash Wednesday, the first of 40 days of Lent.  To think about the purpose of this time and where it takes us is a reminder that Jesus died willingly to save us.  I am so thankful for his personal sacrifice for us, and I will continue to strive to become a better, kinder, more loving person.

Today was a lovely, quiet, peaceful, and prayerful day.  My gratitude for all the many blessings in my life could never be big enough, but I try.  I am especially grateful and joyful for all the wonderful people who have been in my life, those currently in my life, and all those yet to come in and sit awhile…or stay forever.

Blessings to all of you.  May you enjoy the photos of the flowers my brother gave me.

With Valentine’s Day coming I want to share this poem I wrote in 2005. I hope you will enjoy it.

You sit in this quiet place
Playing quiet beautiful music
A peace comes over you

You feel a joy you never knew
You look up to see her
There a short distance away

Her smile comes from deep within
She walks very slowly
She is coming to you

You are still playing
Yet you have stopped breathing
You feel you are in a dream

She is beside you now
She holds out her hand to you
You take her hand and rise

The music goes on in your souls
You hold each other
Softly, slowly you glide around the floor

The dance begins
To the quiet song within your hearts
