On The Wings Of Peace

My friend, Sue, shared this post from Teri in Ireland, and hopefully many are spreading the ripples of peace. This is my turn and may you find it in your heart to do the same. With love and blessings, Lauren ♥

Mike's card for world peace0002

During the 1980’s, Mike Bryant created a Peace card. He hoped that by sending it to friends and relatives, they would sign it and re-post, and a chain of Peace would spread around the world. I have to admit that I never got around to sending on the card. I wish I had, but as Mother Earth heaves with sadness, and her people are drowning in sorrow and grief, I offer this Peace chain, to join with other Peace chains along the way. With today’s technology words travel further and faster. Taking up the sword is not the answer. Peace is the answer.

Voices

They are in control of
Their content and volume

They can spread love universally
Their intent can increase cruelty
They are powerful to a higher degree
Their gift is not to be taken in vain
They are us, they are you, and they are we
Their capability can beautify our world
They are counting on us to nurture
Their ability to mend what. has. been. broken.

Someone Like You

Here’s another musical intermission featuring Adele…
It’s a tearjerker, so make sure you have tissue nearby.
For those of us who have had our hearts broken,
this is one song we can relate to.
What amazes me is this performance is only her and the piano.
The ending is honest and emotional.
I hope you enjoy and as always,
thanks so much for stopping by! ♥

Laugh Lines – Haiku

as the mirror meets

her gaze, she sees them, clearly –

wisdom or old age?

(Of course, “she” is used in general terms,
as this can be for men, too.
Just some simple thoughts on aging,
our reactions and what we’ll do about it,
if anything.
Me? I won’t do anything; no desire,
but I will pray (really hard) to age gracefully.

It’s time to step out

of my comfort zone and back

onto a campus –

new goal is exciting, but

my nerves are doing dances

I began working full-time after high school,
married in my late twenties,
had children and here I am.

I’ve just been inspired by my daughter graduating
from community college.
A
dditionally, there were many older adults
who graduated, as well,
some in their fifties and
the oldest was 73!
I’m 52, so I think I fit in, don’t you? 🙂

My goal is to return and work towards an AA in English;
a great opportunity to refresh my brain in many aspects.
Can I do it?  Of course I can…
but I’m a little nervous, too.

I feel good about this; something new for me,
as my kids are now moving on, too.
My hubby has also encouraged me,
so the timing feels right…
to satisfy a hunger to learn more
and to keep my brain young.

If any of you can relate to this new chapter in life,
I’d love to hear your story.
Wish me luck!
🙂
