Enthusiasm

From the Heart

When we wake up in the morning
there is promise in the air.
We don’t know what the day will bring,
but the expectancy is there.

The time to be happy is now.
We have this day to explore.
Every day is a special occasion.
What are you waiting for?

Avoid premature aging with one word.
Enthusiasm would be my choice.
Get excited about each day.
Give your heart a voice!

 

Don’t let your age determine your dream!

How Old is Old?
Your mind is not controlled by a
calendar page.
Let your dream be bold
There are blessings as we age.

 

People don’t expect as much from us.
That’s actually a blessing, you know.
When you do come up with “wisdom
from above”
You can stand back and glow.

 

“When we do the best we can,
we never know what miracle is
wrought in our life. or in the life
of another”

Helen Keller

Choose your words carefully
for they are powerful. you’ll agree.
They can encourage one’s heart
and turn sadness into glee.

How does one express love?
How do you define it?
It stems from the heart.
There is hope and promise in it.

 

“Colors fade, temples crumble,
empires fall.
but wise words endure”.
Edward Thorndike

 

Words of love
“Therefore comfort one another with these words”
1 Thesalonians 4:18

God gave you a gift of of 86,400 seconds today.
Have you used one to say “Thank you”?

Every day is a blessing from above.
Thank God for His promises.
We thrive on His love!

 

Keep looking up, dear friend.
That’s where your future lies.
I am always spellbound
when I gaze up at the skies.

 

I can hear God whisper,
“I did all this for you.”
The clouds are white and billowy
floating in a sky so blue.

 

Just stand still and listen.
God’s promises have no end.
“I wish you a Merry Christmas
and a Happy New Year my friend.”

 

What gives you a sense of Security? I would have to answer “The Promises of God”

Keep looking up – that’s where your future lies.
It is so inspiring
when you gaze up to the skies.

 

Listen to your heart
It whispers softly to you.
“God created all of this
tho not all within your view.”

 

If what I see is so awesome,
I can only imagine what is in store.
God has prizes waiting
All from the Lord we adore!

 

PS God honors His word even above His name.

 

 

 

 

Remove Stress

The holidays can be stressful.
There is so much to do.
Be kind to yourself, dear friend.
This message is meant for you.

 

Do yourself a favor.
Smiling is good for you.
It slows down your heart beat and reduces
stress, and lowers your blood pressure, too.

 

A smile can delight your heart.
and is great at lighting a soul.
Lift someone’s spirit today.
Make smiling a top priority goal.

 

A smile is infectious-
It will always remove a frown.
Facial muscles will be raised up.
It’s the best “face lift” in town.

 

I put my theory to the test.
The woman in the mirror was frowning at me.
I gave her the brightest smile I could muster-
and she smiled right back at me!

Numbers 6:25
“The Lord make His face shine upon you.
and be gracious to you.”

Your smile could be a message of cheer
from God to a needy soul.

 

Reach Out

Lord, thank you for friends.
They warm our heart and lift our spirit every day
Our thoughts are lifted to you, Lord
You are The Truth, The Light, The Way

 

The joy of creating, of touching another soul.
That is the reward of reaching out.
Lord, in You we are all made whole.

 

Knowing God has a plan for our life
is important, don’t you see-
Faith in God’s plan allows us to trust
that the events in our life are meant to be.

 

The joy of creativity,
of touching another’s soul
That is the reward of “reaching out”
The reward will make you whole.

 

Somewhere

6 Oct

From the Heart

Louise GIbson

 

 

Somewhere there is a place for me.
A place I have a need to be.
A new plateau, a goal to meet.
Purpose, direction, without defeat.

 

Oh, God, give me strength to greet each day
with a cheerful countenance. Don’t let me sway.
Please let me focus on the issues of life
that bring joy to others to relieve their strife.

 

To have victory over the enemy called Fear-
the energy and stamina to persevere.

 

Keep Your Eyes On The One Who Is Invisible

4 Aug

From the Heart

Louise Gibson

 

 

 

 

 

As a child, who did you go to for answers?
As a teenager, who was your “go to” friend?
As an adult, do you have a mentor who helps
you find answers you seek?
You can engage the wisest person in the
universe as your councilor to the end.

 

(Without council, plans go awry,
but in the multitude of councilors,
they are established. Proverbs 15:22)

 

Move in the direction of life, not fear.
Stand on the promises of God, our Savior.
He promised to always be near.

 

If you are feeling “in the dark”,
look up to “The Light.”
Keep your eyes on the one who is invisible.
He will guide you safely through the night.

 

Life Demands Mindfulness

From the Heart

Louise Gibson

Water the seed of optimism.
Have a love affair with life.
Think positive thoughts and
you will drive away the strife.

 

Pay attention to the moment.
You’ll find you will learn a lot.
When you tackle the impossible
you will find it’s not as difficult as you thought.

 

Mindfulness is being aware of the present.
Listen to your heart.
Your life matters.
Live it fully from the start.

 

How will being mindful
help you deal with your pain?
Being aware of God’s presence
will bring serenity to your heart again.

 

Knowing God has a plan for your life
should bring assurance to your heart.
Trust Him even in the small things.
Faith is a healthy start.
