The Straight And Narrow
To walk a straight line
is not an easy task.
In the long run,
you will, most likely,
run into bumps and dips
that will try to
throw you off your path -
and they will mostly succeed.
The best thing you can do?
March back to that line,
get back on it, and continue.
Continue without the holding of grudges
or the seething of rage inside you.
To walk a straight line
is not an easy task.
You will stumble, trip, and fall
and you will want to be angry,
angry at those who did it,
and, over all, just want to give up, to quit.
But don't do it.
Because while to walk a straight line
is not an easy task,
in the end, to see what you have accomplished,
to see where you have ended up
from where you have started -
it's all worth it.
Hannah Shier
Very interesting indeed -

The story of life as we all know it..

Like the song says.

Dust yourself off-
And
Start all over again)

I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced, but they
Out-did the sparkling leaves in glee;
A poet could not be but gay,
In such a jocund company!
I gazed—and gazed—but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

William Wordsworth(1770–1850)

Found this on the net wanted to share,hope you like it!!
Dear Lord every single evening as I'm lying here in bed,
this tiny little prayer keeps running through my head.
God bless all my family,wherever they maybe,keep them warm and safe from harm,for they're so close to me.
And God there is one more thing,I wish that you could do,hope you don't mind me asking ,please bless my computer too.
Now I know that its unusual to bless mother board,but listen just a second while I explain it to you Lord.
you see that little metal box,holds more then odds and ends.
Inside those small compartments,rest so many of my friends.
I know so much about them,by the kindness that they give,and this little scrap of metal takes me in to where they live.
By faith is how I know them,much the same as you,we share in what life brings us,and from that our friendships grew.
Please take an extra minute,from your duties up above,to bless those in my address book,that's filled with so much love.
where er else this prayer may reach,to each and every friend,bless each e-mail inbox,and each person who hits send.
when you update your heavenly list on your own C.D.Rom
Bless everyone who says this prayer.Sent up to God.Com Amen !!!!
WOW!! Thanx for sharing.

The Spider and the Ghost of the Fly

Once I loved a spider
When I was born a fly,
A velvet-footed spider
With a gown of rainbow-dye.
She ate my wings and gloated.
She bound me with a hair.
She drove me to her parlor
Above her winding stair.
To educate young spiders
She took me all apart.
My ghost came back to haunt her.
I saw her eat my heart.

If I could give a gift to you
that your heart could always hold
it wouldn't be made of precious jewels
or formed from purest gold.
The gift that I'd present to you
would be safe in every way
for Friendship is the kind of gift
no thief can steal away.
I'd share your happy moments
and help you bear your pain.
I'd be there if you stumbled
to pick you up again.
I'd always wish God's best for you
and do everything I could
To make your life a blessing
and see you dreams come true...

Where it Begins

"The world is with Me..."

The world is with me, and its many cares,
Its woes--its wants--the anxious hopes and fears
That wait on all terrestrial affairs--
The shades of former and of future years--
Forboding fancies and prophetic tears,
Quelling a spirit that was once elate.
Heavens! what a wilderness the world appears,
Where youth, and mirth, and health are out of date;
But no--a laugh of innocence and joy
Resounds, like music of the fairy race,
And, gladly turning from the world's annoy,
I gaze upon a little radiant face,
And bless, internally, the merry boy
Who "makes a son-shine in a shady place."

A PLACE

FINDING MY PEACEFUL PLACE ISN'T ALWAYS A FAIR RACE
MANY OBSTACLES,BARRIERS ARE PLACED ONTO THE PATH
SIMPLE WAYS OH SO COMPLICATED,NO EVEN STRIDE,OR SMOOTH PACE
UNBLOCKED MEMORIES,SEEING WITHIN,THEN FROZEN,AN UNFAIR WRATH

SPENDING THEIR ETERNITY SEEKING A REAL REASON FOR SOMETHING IMPENDING
WHY A LONG WAIT FOR AN UNKNOWN FANTASY,KNOWLEDGE IS POWER
GREATEST MASTER OR MILD & MEEK,TEACHER OR STUDENT THEY FOLLOW WHAT'S PENDING
TRUTHFUL BLISS,POSSIBLY HATED AND BURNING ,BELOW OR ABOVE A SHINING TOWER

FINDING A WAY IN WHICH WE ARE COMFORTABLE TO STAY
SEEMS TO BE THE HOLY GRAIL WITH NO LINES OR BLOCKADES
NOT ALLOWING MY OWN OPINION OF WHAT IS TRUTH OF THE WHOLE DOMINION,SETTLING IN SOLACE, NEVER CAUSING A FRAY
A SIMPLE TRUTHFUL PEACE IS BASIC WITH NO BARRIERS, IF ACCEPTED
WITHOUT A PRECISE RULE THERE IS NO FEAR OF A STOCKADE Rick Nov.20 2013

Why complicate Life...

Missing somebody...Call
Wanna Meet up...Invite
Wanna Be Understood..Explain
Have Questions..Ask
Don't Like Something..Say It
Like Something..State It
Want Something..Ask for it
Love Someone ..Tell It
We just have one life so keep it Simple...

As we walk our path of life
we meet people every day.
Most are simply met by chance
but some are sent our way.
These become the special friends
whose bond we can't explain.
The ones who understand us
and share our joy and pain.
Their love contains no boundaries
so even when apart
their presence still embrace us
with a warmth felt in the heart.
This love becomes a passageway
when even miles disappear
and so these friends life sends our way
remain forever near..

Hi..........Reaching out there on the edge is harder to express with clarity,positive annotations hold the fringe.Rick

STOIC THOUGHTS
Writing is useful,but does it come out as maniacal or insane,is hard to express a simple thought without showing the depths it was wrought. a gain is my own, almost selfish rarely ever shown. when all the cards are on the table it is difficult to be a magician.
The play with words & sounds become increasingly centered, a hope for focus, a wish to not be led astray ,to far away from the conscious edge while still seeking an epiphany .
That transition is easier to live as a lifestyle,rather than holding back ,better to know the truth than to hide from the present ,how many sit with it or are afraid or find it vile.
A corruption of thoughts & feelings or convoluted dreams can be dealt with stoically or possibly handled & fondled serving as a gift to the mind & soul that are willing to own them.

There's never a teardrop
that God doesn't see.
He knows when a sparrow
falls from a tree.
There is never a moment
when God doesn't care,
Never a time
when he wont hear our prayer...

LIFE AS A MASSAGE
It may come in on a mild warm wind ,if your listening for a message I want to send
Will you receive the happy & meager smile or be brought into a view of pain
a mind can play endless tricks of passion or glory,playing equal part when given consent
Living to perfection or appeasing hearts not our own,leaves an open gap without ever seeing a gain.

Life as a message or is it just for us,we go about the day,wonder on our way
A simple grain or profound & prolific,was it meant to be something or just to pass time
Starts with a breath a sudden flush & rush of life giving blood,it all begins an a clock that gets to stop whenever it sees fit
Making a way, some very restless others always stay,others stand by & only kneel & pray
A simple manner or a special appeal ,playing simple or with with great zeal
forever continuing in a wondrous path laughing under the covers never feeling anyone's wrath

Do we send a message now as we live & interact to make us easier to recognize in another's memory
Write it all down in a hidden diary ,showing one side to the world but another in the mirror
Will the flash back in their mind be real,bland or beige or possibly complimentary
One day to thousands then the presence builds , lasting past or just a blink & an error? Rick
