HI, HOW ARE YA?

HI, HOW ARE YA?

When I turn to God and say “Hello” and He answers “Hi, How are ya?”

I  look a little closer; Who will he be tomorrow?

Today he may be Sandy, tomorrow perhaps Claude

The next day may be Betty; yesterday was Maude.

I really don’t know What or Who or even When or If God Is.

What I do know is that when I call on God I find Love.

When I Accept that Love I find Knowledge.

When I apply that Knowledge I find Friendship.

When I share that Friendship I discover more Love.

REMEMBER: FEAR-LOVE-HEAL

 

 

To love is to Heal.

To accept Love is to Be Healed.

Healing begins when Fear is vanquished.

(Perhaps it is the other way around.)

Fear returns to the shadows and birds begin to chirp.

Fear becomes itself at first light.

The Light of Love is felt with the decision to Accept.

Acceptance lights the Path.

The Path is Today.

This is the way,

To Heal,

To be Healed.

Love becomes the Lover.

And Fear becomes a fading memory.

 

A MAN OF FEW WORDS

A MAN OF FEW WORDS


He lived Love but never spoke of it.

He was impossibly complex, subtle yet obvious, impossible to describe due to what?

His peculiar sort of mediocrity ?

The aloof quality which was ever-present, whether shopping for a new automobile or when he in his most raggedy attire was on his hands and knees, all brown: I say all brown and dirty, playing marbles with his sons.

But one could always depend on him to use only whatever words were necessary to say whatever it was he had to say.

Oh yes.

His name was Dixie.

He was my Father.

I called him Lovey.

HI, HOW ARE YA?

When I turn to God and say “Hello” and He answers “Hi, How are ya?”

I  look a little closer; Who will he be tomorra?

Today he may be Clara, tomorra perhaps Claude

The next day may be Manny; yesterday was Maude.

 

I really don’t know What or Who or even When or If God Is.

What I do know is that when I call on God I find Love.

When I Accept that Love I find Knowledge.

When I apply that Knowledge I find Friendship.

When I share that Friendship I discover more Love.

Competitive spirit, the will of the weak
Line item listings
Of proof.
Wasted moments of life without purpose
Uncomfortably
Long of tooth.

So where are they now; What purpose was served
What evidence
Did survive?
(Arms out. Now walk. Now jump up and down.
Replicate
Signs of Life.)

Competitive spirit; no more to be seen.
Line item listings
Gone.
Service to Others; a life now with purpose
Confidence second to
None
Life again moving
Along.
