“FEELINGS FOR YOU!”Β πŸ€—

“FEELINGS FOR YOU!” a poem January 28, 2019

WE’RE BORN! to-eat-&-work-&-s – – – w,
And-we-drive-and-we-talk – and we’re told what to do,
By well-meaning folks(?) who-know “The Score(?),”
And we “go-to-the-church” to-listen to MORE,
Folks that advise us, and-they’re-“helping”-us-through?
Qs-find-“the-‘right’-way!” ALL-are-asking: “We’re-WHO?”
Well-we’re: good sons – and daughters – of Good God above,
And, IF you-don’t like-IT, there’re-are-therapists – of,
The-finest-persuasions – and-philosophies-to-boot:
Like-Jung-Freud-&-Adler – and-they-all-want-your-loot,
To advise you, quite kindly, what-we’re-doing-this-for:
TO GO TO A “BETTER” PLACE,* and, yes, there is more!
There are “law makers,” and police! to enforce their “good laws!”
So-we-can BEHAVE-“properly,” the reason?: JUST-BECA’SE,
And we grow – and we age – and “doctors” tell us how,
To “LIVE OUT ‘GOOD’ LIVES!” and-I-just-say: “Oh, wow!”
So! All-this-be-“leading” -to-SOME-BETTER-PLACE?!
BECAUSE-THIS-AIN’T! (any-good?) So-(let’s) put-on our-best-happy-face,
Smile! Behave! Yeah!-“mind-your p’s & q’s,”
And – FOR HEAVEN’S SAKE – never! Never accuse,
ANYONE! of-being-kinda-CRAZY, as we-all-hide in these bodies,
Composed-of SUBATOMIC PARTICLES, which-“eliminate” in-potties!!
So, eat, work – and s – – t – Sc – – w, Worship – & Obey,
And, with THAT – we’ll “get through” – about 30,000+ of-the-same-ol’-day?!
With NO REAL PROOF – of-any-hopeful-afterlife,
Except-weird-people-with-VISIONS! So, embrace-all-this-strife!
My question is: WHY people just keep on going!
For FEAR? laziness? or-to-drink** -ramble, UNknowing?
Flying to The Moon! Listening to “tunes!”
Talking pretty much non-stop – on phones, just-like-loons!
Drooling-around-shopping – and-traveling-for “FUN,”
And this-is-life-HERE! Have-I-missed-much?-Am-I-done,
With another useless poem? Go-on! DO-“view”-your-“tellie,”
Or-engage in “social media,” or (again) fill up your belly?
And-be-concerned – that-what-you-eat will-be-poisonous, yes, sir!?
SO!-THE-QUESTION! “WHY CONTINUE?” Entertainment? Life’s-a-“whir,”
Of thoughts – and scenery – and plans for next Week,
Month, Year, Forever – and-we seek, seek, seek, seek –
FOR SOMETHING TO FILL TIME – and do some of this:
Birthdays – and Holidays – and conjugal bliss!
Well, we-re seemingly “trapped here,” unless-you-jump-off,
The next bridge “up there!” Breathe your last? &-then, COUGH!
A cough you-got-FROM-LIVING? – or smoking too much?
Dang!-now-you’ve (got) disease – from “a lover” you-did-touch,
With “the wrong part” of your body; oh, how sad! Time to die;
Laugh-sing-eat-poo-study – travel – and cry,
And we all sit-around bedazzled – in some hypnotic trance,
And pay money to “The Studio” – to learn how to dance!
So, have-you-ever-asked-too?! THE-REASON-to-live? or-why-you’re-so-blue?
Well, The Reason MIGHT BE: Well! (pause)
It’s-ALWAYS-been-YOU!
Seeing-YOU; hearing-YOU; touching-you TOO!
YOU-YOU! LOVE-FOR-YOU!! It’s REMARKABLY TRUE! πŸ™‚ -oo!

Relationship Breakdown πŸ‘±

There are a million reasons relationships go through difficulties. There may be external factors the put pressures on your relationship – such as money, problems at work, a new baby, difficulties with family and friends.
Infidelity could be another reason. There may not be one incident in itself, but the gradual buildup of resentment and bitterness over the years caused by smaller disagreements that have taken their toll on the relationship. Little things that you always saw as Cute and adorable when you first got together now great on you intensely.
It interest to note that traditionally infidelity has number one reason cited in divorce cases.
Accordingly, according to statics ” falling out of love” – ” growing apart ” are the most common reasons cited for divorce.
It is important to take some time really to identify what the issues or problems are in the relationship.
It is not a blame game, it’s about being totally honest and both parties accepting responsibility on both sides. This can be a difficult situation for both parties. Emotions may be charged and some things are painfully to consider and indeed to talk about.
Yes, Professional Counseling is available but this path doesn’t have great success. Both of you will overspend money creating more angst between you. Friends, the family should never be consulted as you well know sides have already confirmed who on whose side they are and advice is in favor of their Opinion!?.

“THE MIRACLE (OR MURMUR) OF YOU[R VOICE]!”🌼

“THE MIRACLE (OR MURMUR) OF YOU[R VOICE]!” a poem written after singing: “Like the Murmur of the Dove’s Song,” p. 285, Presbyterian Hymnal! a.k.a.: “Like The Murmur Of The Dove’s (I Mean) Pheasant’s Song, Since I Couldn’t Get A Good Rhyme For DOVE, Except: Above, Love, Glove, Shove And Of! Sorry!” Sunday (01/20/19)

{“The Holy Spirit”* evidently provides both GIFTS & FRUITS! Miracles are, I think, considered “gifts!” When asked to specify a gift in his life, one young disciple replied: “ME;” another said: “Petting my dogs,” and a third: “Being able to open doors for people who can’t! Or – is that a FRUIT?” A better “trinity” of answers, I can not imagine!!}

One-gift-of-The(HOLY)Spirit – is a miracle!
“Do-you-do-miracles?”** “Well, I’m lyrical,
For, when a few nice words escape my lips,
It-seems-like-a-miracle – and words can launch ships,
And stay executions – and make children laugh,
And ENDEAR ME – to- my-BETTER-HALF!
My-body is a miracle; it HOUSES my voice!”
EVERYONE’S A MIRACLE – just-like-a-Rolls-Royce,
Which-is-a-miracle-to-behold, with its nifty horn!
It’s always a miracle, when a vehicle is born!
Every-voice-is-a-miracle, declaring:-“HE- I S-(the)-LORD!”
By The Holy Spirit,
salvation’s-always-poured,
Just like water – turning to wine;
Ev-er-y VOICE (pause) can-be so DIVINE;
IT-doesn’t-always-please – all-the-people-present,
Just-like-a-dead – or-dis-eased pheasant!!
But you can take the damaged pheasant home,
And, maybe, heal it – with – a healing poem,
And, if you can save the sweet bird’s life,
It might sing so beautifully – and-become your wife!
It’ll be A MIRACLE — if-(a charge of)-sodomy-you-can-avoid,
With your beautiful bird! Has The Spirit – toyed,
With-miracles (transformations) to-make all things “right?!”
SLEEP! WITH-YOUR-PHEASANT – EV-ER-Y NIGHT;
Whisper in-her-beak, with your (miraculous) voice, so soft,
And-by-a-miracle-she’ll-soon-join-you – in-The-Choir-Loft!
You-both-will-sing!-with-pretty-voice(s), as-she-is-now-a-(pretty)-dame,
But, of-course-to-GOD – it’s really all the same!
FOR GOD MANAGES TO-DO-MIRACLES -EVEN-WITH VOICES THAT HOWL!
So, it’s-really-not-a-big-thing – to-marry-you-off- to-a-beautiful-fowl!

* – Whatever YOU think IT is!
– another question asked by The Pastor, directed to The Congregation
*** – or sink them!!

Jesus

Jesus, shine through me and be so in me that every person I come in contact with may feel your presence in my soul.
My God, send me thy Holy Spirit to teach me what I am and what thou art!
May the Passion of Christ be ever in our heart.
And to be more with Him, more with Him, not merely with oneself.

Father, my heart is heavy. I feel like I have to carry the burden alone. Words like “overwhelmed,” “distraught,” “exhausted” seem to describe where I am. I am not sure how to let you carry my heavy load, so please show me how. Take it from me. Let me rest and be refreshed so that my heart won’t be so heavy in the morning. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Dear Lord, help me remember what a difference it makes when I make time with You a priority in my morning. Awaken me in body and spirit each day with a desire to meet with You and to hear You speak words of affirmation, assurance and wisdom over my heart as I prepare to go into my day. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Dear My Darling Husband, ❀

Dear My Darling Husband,

Health is the greatest gift, contentment the most enormous wealth, faithfulness the best relationship & I wish you all these three in abundance on this special day.

I am wishing you a day that is specially designed by your deeds for you.

May you find happiness in the simple things of life.

Have a meaningful Birthday every day of your life ❀

Happy Birthday

“Joe Hill”
-Joan Baez

“I dreamed, I saw Joe Hill last night
Alive as you and me
Says I “But Joe, you’re ten years dead”
“I never died” says he
“I never died” says he

“The copper bosses killed you, Joe”
“They shot you Joe” says I
“Takes more than guns to kill a man”
Says Joe “I didn’t die”
Says Joe “I didn’t die”

And standing there, as big as life
And smiling with his eyes
Says Joe “What they can never kill
Went on to organize
Went on to organize”

From San Diego up to Maine
In every mine and mill
Where working folks defend their rights
It’s there you find Joe Hill
It’s there you find Joe Hill

I dreamed I saw, I dreamed I saw, Joe Hill last night
Alive as you and me
Says I “But Joe, you’re ten years dead”
“I never died” says he, “I never died” says he
“I never died” says he.”

Contemporary Art + Quote

β€œWe have lived our lives by the assumption that what was good for us would be good for the world. We have been wrong. We must change our lives so that it will be possible to live by the contrary assumption, that what is good for the world will be good for us. And that requires that we make the effort to know the world and learn what is good for it.” ― Wendell Berry

Australia Day Victoria 🌼

But all my words come back to me in shades of mediocrity, Like emptiness in harmony I need someone to comfort me
Homeward bound – Simon & Garfunkel

Australia Day evening delivered a spectacular sunset across Victoria and as I look at all the fantastic stories on Instagram of the shots people were getting I downloaded my photos taken minutes from home at Point Roadknight and thought…I wouldn’t have wanted to be anywhere else to witness that awesome event.
