Gratitude for even the most minute and simplest things in our lives, will open up our understanding to just how blessed we truly are!

A Grateful Heart is a Joyful Heart!

Shining Star - Earth, Wind, and Fire

The Star

A Grateful Heart is a Joyful Heart!


I looked up into the midnight sky,

and there I saw a falling-star,

and this falling-star

just kept falling!

This falling-star fell right out

of the midnight sky,

and directly into my hands!



A Grateful Heart is a Joyful Heart!

Blue Night
Blue Night

The Question


My friend, who was beside me,

asked me in a trembling voice,

"What are y-y-you going to do

w-w-with that s-s-star?"


A Grateful Heart is a Joyful Heart!

Purple Night
Purple Night

The Answer


I looked down at the breathing,

twinkling, star that I held

within my hands,

and after only a short moment

of very deep thought,

I carefully, and deliberately,

replied back to my friend,

"I am going to give this star away!

I will give it to someone

who has an important

and beautiful wish

that they need fulfilled."


A Grateful Heart is a Joyful Heart!

Red Night

The Joy


And, I found this

to be a very easy decision

for me because, you see,

I had all that I

had ever wished for already:

My family's health;

Shelter from the elements;

Daily food;

Clean water to drink;

Air to breathe;

Legs to walk; and,

Peace in my heart

from the Great Love

of our Heavenly Father!

Therefore, what more

could I possibly wish for?


A Grateful Heart is a Joyful Heart!

Orange Night
Orange Night

The Need


I ended up giving the star away

to my friend who was beside me,

because he had an important

and beautiful wish to be fulfilled!

He wanted his heart to be made

whole, again!


A Grateful Heart is a Joyful Heart!

Sapphire Night
Sapphire Night

The Living Star


You see, upon the sight

of my holding a breathing,

twinkling, living star

within my very hands,

(that fell from the midnight sky),

my dear friend had a massive heart-attack!

A Grateful Heart is a Joyful Heart!


A Grateful Heart is a Joyful Heart!

Blessed Night!
Blessed Night!

A Grateful Heart is a Joyful Heart!

Desert Night

A Grateful Heart is a Joyful Heart!

Sometimes it’s the simplest joys that are the necessities of life! For one week, would you rather go without:

      We all need a star in our life. Yours keeps giving long after the day is over. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Everywhere I look I see incredible love. You share that in all your writings. Have a fun filled afternoon.

      During the holidays, I have taken some time off from writing as things have been busy. I will be back hopefully soon.

      I hope your friend is doing well. I think that star you have in your hands has split in two. That means you both get to have the wishes you both need and want. Very beautiful writings. Thank you for being my friend.

      Well, Tamara, you ask the question, "what more could I possibly wish for?" When you tie gratefulness and joy together, I guess there really isn't much else, except the giver of both - Jesus!

      Ryan,

      Wow, that was fast! I just barely submitted it for publication, and then “Bam!, a comment from you..lol.

      This is the first time I’ve ever received a comment in such lightening-like speed! (LOL)

      Thank you so much; it means a lot to me.
