A Life to Live

I am retired and enjoying life. My hobbies are my 5 grandchildren, son and daughter, and my loving husband. I am a photographer and extreme nature lover. I love spending time in my garden or in the wilderness connected to God my Creator.

Stressed Out? Try Humor

From the Heart

Humor is good medicine;

It has the power to heal.

You can’t laugh and remain sad;

Good endorphins you will reveal.


The Lord is our Heavenly Physician-

He advised “Be of good cheer”

“Lord, I can endure all things

As long as You are near.”


I have learned to accept myself

with all of my limitations and flaws-

“When I raise my sights to you, Lord,

My inner self is filled with “awes”.


(   A  laugh-at-myself analysis )


I was born a duck,

so I quack like a duck.

Yes, that “quack” came  out of me..

No matter how I envision myself a swan-

A duck I will always be!

From the Heart

Today is the “tomorrow” that I thought about yesterday-

Then, why is it said, “Tomorrow never comes”-

When it came today!!?

I have so much to do today-

I’ll have to think this through.

If I can’t complete it all,

Here’s what I’ll have to do.

I’ll set myself free from stress-

More time I’ll have to borrow.

I’ll reschedule today’s events-

Thank God for “tomorrow”.

P.S.  I’m going to stop procrastinating-

(Once I get around to it.)
