the Little Seed

Once there was a dream

planted in the heart of a child.

Through the years it would

start to grow and someone

would step on it with negative

words over and over, until it

quit looking for new springs.

Then ONE person took the time

to look inside the heart and with kind words

and encouragement the dream

began to grow....

until it became REALITY!!!

Random Post

I have learned a few random things today.
1) Fried BUTTER is the most popular treat at the Texas State Fair.
2) There are people who actually believe in gnomes and trolls...and I mean "adult" people.
3) People can fry coke.
4) People in France are gaining weight since adding several McDonalds.
5) give Cara fake teeth and a princess crown and she is happy.

Okay, this is my random post of the week.

Where Does Your Path Lead

Keep following or make a new one?
Whatever is best without forcing it.
Forcing the path will ruin the destiny.
What happens happens for a reason
always a lesson
I don't have the answer to the question...
Just contemplating and wondering

The Creative Energy

I was talking to a friend the other day. She is a song writer. She gave up writing songs because of fear she wasn't "good enough". She expressed to me that she felt "dried up" because she wasn't using her creativity.

How many of us have felt like this? We feel all "dried up" because of lack of creativity. Let's try to change this. I have felt this way many times. I want to challenge everyone to do something creative everyday. It can be small like jotting down a sentence or listening to music and singing. I am going to do this myself. I know it will help everyone get the creative energy flowing.

My friend has been doing a creative exercise a day. She already has more of a "pep" to her voice. I know she will be writing amazing inspiring songs soon. :)

Back in 2007

I wrote this post on Babysoup about 2 years it a flower, celebrate your uniqueness...

Well, I have been praying about what to write. Last night God kept showing me a picture of people. People as flowers. He was weeding the people. He would reach down and pull a weed out of my arm. The great thing was this.... God was concentrating on the flowers!!! He wasn't dwelling on the weeds. He was admiring the beautiful flowers.
So many times we dwell on the mistakes we have made. God at our growth and our beauty!!!

The Mirror

to look is to

feel for me

to feel is to see

to see is to notice

to notice is to care

rain is just a drizzle

like a constant drip...

getting weather

as a chance to rest but

I am looking at the rain

and hoping for a rainbow

I want to see a rainbow soon. :)

Take the time to get to know who your kids really will be blessed. :)
