Explore, Dream, Discover.

“Twenty years from now

you will be more disappointed

by the things that you didn’t do

than by the ones you did do. So,

throw off the bowlines, sail away

from safe harbor, catch the

trade winds in your sails.

Explore, Dream, Discover.”

God blessed the love birds
always and ever happy
thoughts of each other

sharing and caring as one
God met their needs, not their wants

.

Poem:
.

the one who held the family together
always there despite the weather
feast or famine, healthy or sick
she was there through thin and thick

clinging to her apron strings
she was an angel earning her wings
year after year as we grew
she always did what a mother should do

us from the world she did protect
and when we did wrong she did correct
many good times stored in memory
events supplied by her boundless energy

sadly celebrated only one day a year
I see her reflection in every tear
kudos to mothers everywhere
the world would cease without their care

eyes that sparkle

a very happy heart

peace and happiness

joyful bliss

by doing God’s will

Poem:

.

a hot muggy summers night
air so thick it hazes the moonlight
crickets and frogs don’t seem to mind
what a wonderful world God has designed

man’s so vain he thinks he can affect the weather
it’s Mother Nature who puts things together
evolution caused by the Earth’s wobble
man is but one percent of the climate bobble

the earth’s crust is constantly shifting
the tectonic plates are always drifting
man’s existence is but a blip on the Earth’s timeline
for what little we know we can thank Einstein

who cares if New York City sinks under the sea
that Saint Andreas fault sets California free
is there an Orwellian world in our future
or will civilization flush itself down the sewer

will man’s ego still reign supreme
or will we wake up and learn that it was all a dream
