The New Year Awaits!


When the New Year sprouts
from its midnight roots...
like a gorgeous bloom,
it will open soon.
We leave behind doubts
while building new hopes...
aspiring for feats
in community and home.

Building Home and Community
based upon Divine Principles

        We are one.
        We are family.
        We are each individual sovereign aspects ...of the creator source.
        That which you give, you will receive.
        Intent facilitates creation.
        Energy flows where the mind goes.
        You reap what you sow.
        All life is sacred.
        Respect and honour the self and each other as aspects of self.
        Take only that which is freely given.
        Treat others as you would like to be treated.
        Cause no harm.
        There is only one love, and it exists whether anyone can see it at all.
        There is only one truth, and it exists whether anyone knows it or not.

(Compliments to Sherrie for these Divine Principles)

The foregoing are my “Pearls of Wisdom” to jump-start the New Year!

Picture a bluebird hunched on a branch, barren of leaves,
yet loaded with numerous red berries.
His feathers are fluffed, giving him protection of warmth 
on this cold wintry day,
while snow gently falls on his body, the branch and the berries.
He's complacent and happy as he ponders this quote by ... Oscar Wilde:

What is beautiful
is a joy
for all seasons!

  2. While away for a few days over New Year's...the new calendar was "hung by the kitchen with care".
    On each month this quote was given:
    "ENJOY 2012...Take in Every Moment!"

    You and the calendar think alike, Sherrie!!!

  3. Merle, thoroughly enjoyed reading your blogs on Family Humour and Business Humour. Thank you for writing wonderful stories to make me knowledgable as well as laugh at the wonderful way you post the humours. Pary

    1. Pary...I am so thrilled you enjoy reading my varied blogs that present "life situations". Humour IS a Part of Life and does much to balance our individual natures. Ever so grateful, also for the technical computer assistance you generously offered in my initial stages of initiating my blog. Without you and my son...this would have been a lost cause!
