A Quiet Day


From Start To Finish

As the world spins

I just float

People are going from place to place

I sleep

They are dealing with all the things that come into play

I eat

They come home after eight hours of work exhausted

I am refreshed

They scramble to complete what they started the day before

Squeezing in a little of the news and some t.v.

I dream

They get a shower and get ready for bed

I had a full day of relaxation and rest

I let my thoughts come and go

My day off from work

So there was no where to be at any special time

I enjoyed the sun and it's warm rays

Nature brings out the best in me

I was carefree and calm

Now redirecting each thought as a prayer

Thanking God many times through out the day

So happy to be alive and well

How blessed I am to have met so many people during my life

What a wonderful life that I live

Words and actions light up my life

I wish you all a day of good old fashion rest

Where you also can enjoy the peace and quiet

The love around you from every direction

Your body finding harmony

So simple and nice

Some things are worth repeating

Thank God for this wonderful Life

Michael-Milec To feel and appreciate this magnificent life is all I want to do. Thoughts enter my mind and fill my body with so many beautiful sensations at any given time. They don't show any pattern or design that I can understand. Always pleasant sometimes mild and other times very powerful. I look for key ideas that lead my ideas in one direction or another. There seem to be none. As I sit here on this cool day on the outside but very warm and comfortable in the inside. I enjoy both sensations. The desire to eat and sleep are very strong. I keep both at a minimum. Watching when my simplest needs are met everything else feels more wonderful. I am always learning and finding more about myself that I never knew. Thank you for reading and sharing. May todays good thoughts create more happiness throughout the world.

In agreement with you on every point. When the heart speaks, the heart flows with it. I do understand you fully. It is the same spirit of the Creator speaking to us when in prayer and meditation, free of all daily duties we spend quality time focusing on things which matters most. You have made that choice to live wonderful life putting actions and words in harmony the way where the blessings dwells.

The Lord is the one who helps me go from day to day. From my morning prayer to the Lord's Prayer at night.

Dora Weithers I am blessed. Now it doesn't mean I don't have my struggles and problems. When I have more days like today my troubles seem so far away. Giving thanks makes me understand that everything is temporary. What I have today I might not have tomorrow. What I can do appreciate every moment and see and enjoy it for what it is. I like to think of it as a slice of pie. Hot apple pie out of the oven with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream on it. It tastes so good. Now I got to enjoy just one slice and the rest of the pie is for everyone else. Will the next pie be as good ? I hope so. We will just have to wait and see. For now I can run the memory of the apple pie through my head over and over again. Each time the memory comes out delicious. Thank you for reading and sharing. Have a relaxing night.

You have found the secret of a happy life, which is contentment, which could also be called gratitude. Thank you for sharing your very positive attitude.
