HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHASTA II

Sunday, August 05, 2012

Today is the birthday of one of my best Spark friends, SHASTA 11. She's been a wonderful friend ever since I joined SP!

As my friend, you are...

B - Benevolent
E - Entertaining
S - Soulful
T - Talented
B - Blessed
U - Unique
D - Dashing
D - Determined
Y - Youthful

In your birthday cake, I want to dedicate one slice to love, one slice to courage, one slice to determination, one slice to peace of mind and one slice to fortune. My all these slices come together to form a life for you which is sweeter than any cake in this world.

As my friend, you have converted my sorrows into joys, fears into hope, questions into answers and doubts into results. Could I possibly ask for anything more? Wishing you a very Happy Birthday!

Humbly, Joan

    You're a pretty sweet and special friend also. What a wonderful tribute to your friend for her birthday and well said, my dear. I hope you gain those things as well. Hugs to you and have a beautiful day in spite of the rain. I got a walk in and the raindrops on the trees and grass and puddles were very lovely. Take care.

Never Quit Pledge...It's time to get serious fellow Sparkers!

Saturday, April 28, 2012

Today, I promise I will not quit.
I pledge that no matter, how many ups and
downs I pass through,
I will continue on my journey.
I pledge to make a NEW START today,
and forgive myself for my past,
and to stop being so critical of myself.
I pledge to take control of myself,
To Stop making excuses,
And stop blaming other people or situations.
I pledge to treat myself as I would my Best
Friend,
Because that is who I am.
I pledge to stay in the race
and to be a WINNER!

Happy Easter!

Saturday, April 07, 2012

I know it's Easter time again,
I feel it in the air.
The breath of spring with woodsy tang,
And new life everywhere.
And spring glides on with magic touch
O'er mountain side and glen;
And wakens all the sleeping plants
For Easter time again.

The brooklets leap from rock to rock,
As if in joyful play;
The flowers peep from darkened tombs
To welcome Easter Day.
The birds are swinging on the boughs,
And trill in ecstasy;
They seem to show the world's great joy
Of Easter mystery.

Why should we dread
the thing called death?
It's just an open door,
Where all within is love and peace
And joy forever more.
"Because I live, you too shall live,"
We hear the Savior say.
Let's consecrate our lives anew,
On this glad Easter Day.
(unknown to me)

Red is for the blood He gave
Green is for the grass He made
Yellow is for the sun so bright
Orange is for the edge of night
Black is for the sins that were made
White is for the grace He gave
Purple is for the hour of sorrow
Pink is for the new tomorrow

Blessed Easter, Willow
