Thursday, April 10, 2014

OK, I am back. I managed to get about 95% of my paper work and drawer straightening done. I found this amongst (spell check does not like this but it's MY choice!) my papers and wanted to share it with all my Spark friends who visit my blogs.

Too slow for those who wait
Too swift for those who fear
Too long for those who grieve
Too short for those who rejoice
But for those who love,
Time is Eternity

    Too bitter for the cruel,
So sweet for the kind ...

Too precious to be wasted
Too free to be coveted ...

I agree, the spell checker needs to learn "amongst." Any program that cannot distinguish between Baseline and Vaseline is just plain shoddy.

On being childlike

Saturday, April 05, 2014

During my looking through and sorting papers, I found this poem written to me by my oldest son. It was either for Mother's Day or my birthday.

Life can be tough
With problems we face
So many decisions
Filling our space.

There's not enough time
To accomplish our goals
We fight for some meaning
To replenish our souls.

People around us
Scurry on by
We forget to be human
And then wonder why.

Yet simplicity and focus
Being true to ourselves
Is all that really matters
Like when we were twelve.

    Guess I will leave a word here. No, he is not a writer, but has a way with words. He is semi-retired from a business in which he helped people build their own homes. Gave me two beautiful grandchildren, daughter not married but engaged (what ever that means these days) our grandson (married to a beautiful young lady he went to school with) is an assistant basketball coach at Cal State College in San Francisco, a job he no doubt got because when he was in high school he and my son went at 7 am each morning to shoot baskets. That led to his being a high scorer during high school and college. He spent three seasons in Australia playing for a team there. I hated his being so far away, but he loved Australia and the people. OK, can't a grandma (nana) brag a little???? Night, hugs, Betty emoticon

    I love the thoughts your son expressed. At 60 I am once again discovering the joys in life that I enjoyed as a teenager. Once again I dance and go for long walks daily. It's great finding the child inside the old lady.

Valuable Lessons That We Learned from Noah’s Ark

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

Everything we need to know about life, we learned from Noah’s Ark…

1. Don't miss the boat.

2. Remember that we are all in the same boat.

3. Plan ahead! It wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark.

4. Stay fit. When you're 600 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big.

5. Don't listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done.

6. Build your future on high ground.

7. For safety's sake, travel in pairs.

8. Speed isn't always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs.

9. When you're stressed, float a while.

10. Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals.

11. No matter the storm, when you are with God, there's always a rainbow waiting.

Genesis 9:12-15
Then God said, “I am giving you a sign of my covenant with you and with all living creatures, for all generations to come. I have placed my rainbow in the clouds. It is the sign of my covenant with you and with all the earth. When I send clouds over the earth, the rainbow will appear in the clouds, and I will remember my covenant with you and with all living creatures. Never again will the floodwaters destroy all life.

God's hands

Friday, March 21, 2014

Sorry, the Friends second part would not allow me to print it. This is another part sent with that message:

The nicest place to be is in someone’s THOUGHTS!
The safest place to be is in someone’s PRAYERS!
And the best place to be is in GOD’S HANDS!

Friends ... They love you,
But they're not your lover

They care for you,
But they're not from your family

They're ready to share your pain,
But they're not your blood relation.

They are ... FRIENDS! !!!!

A True friend...
Scolds like a DAD...
Cares like a MOM...
Teases like a SISTER...
Irritates like a BROTHER...
And finally loves you more than a LOVER.

2nd. part next time, friends.
