The below written prose is also on my poetry blog. I loved it so much, I wanted you to enjoy it here as well. Please, make this year count with everything that you have!

With God's grace and mercy a new year unfolds. Resolve to resolve the resolutions and just live. Be in the moment. Aware of the earth and everything it holds. The moment when the clouds appear as pink as a rose and as soft as cotton. When the sun makes its daily appearance as quiet and as gentle as a newborn sleeps. The moment when a bird sits perched on a nearby ledge unaware of your presence. When the raindrops are falling, replenishing our crops. When Spring flowers first bloom with no help from the human hand. When the Monarch flutters by in the midst of rush hour. When God whispers your name so sweet and lovingly. His promises revealed one after the other.

Be in the moment of a life so overflowing with blessings we often take them for granted. Be aware of the hungry, the sick, the hurting and the poverished. The death and destruction won't last for too long. Be in the moment when Jesus returns and takes hold of your hand. Eyes wide, heart pounding and tears flowing. Your journey on earth will all be worth it, if you live in the moment of worshiping our Lord.

Hi!Again. Thanks for your comment.
I think nature really nurtures the mind and spirit.
I always think about having garden that speaks to me the way the oak does.

To live in the moment is a good thing to aspire. Happy New Year!

Thanks so much for your wonderful encouragement on my last post. It has been a bit scary just taking this next step and I want to thank you for your heart and how much you have spurred me on to dream and trust God for them to come to pass.

I will share more with you as the process goes.

God bless you sis.
