A Friend is “You”

A friend gives hope when life is low,
A friend is a place where you can go,
A friend if honest & is true,
A friend is precious..
A friend is “You”.

Patient endurance attends to all things.

Out of suffering comes the serious mind; out of salvation, the grateful heart; out of endurance, fortitude; out of deliverance faith. Patient endurance attends to all things.

Teresa of Avila

Good morning with . . . “odd but pretty” Lily

This very unusual Lily holds its flowers upright along the stem, so that they really show off their unfurling peachy apricot petals and rich chocolate brown anthers. Often compared to roses, ‘Apricot Fudge’ has all the form of a hybrid tea with the staying power and easy care of a vigorous shrub rose.

#FridayFantasy . . . The Horse 🐎

No other animal in history
has contributed to our modern era more than the horse.
This natural bond speaks to us
of the ability of man and animal to commit to work together
and care for each other in the spirit of love.

The Great Silence!

In the great silence
the flowers seeded and grew,
the rain fell, the land took a breath,
The sun turned on its wheel
heedless to the forecast doom.

In the great silence
the leaves folded, took their queue
and detached from the branch,
to become the first fruit
of a fallen carpet
destined for mulch.

In the great silence, north and south,
the seasons changed,
exchanged batons.
The earth, on its axis, followed a path
long trodden,
defined by millennia past.

And in the great silence
the people burrowed in,
appeared on occasion for air,
and breathed secure for knowing the earth
carried on its resolve,
resolute in purpose.

And in the great silence
the planet rested,
the people rethought their focus
and slowed,
unfolded from the weight of lament and fear,
and returned as a world newly formed.

And in the great silence,
the people rebuilt their altars,
with the memory of the lost
freshly engraved,
and with the lessons of the earth
and their treasures preserved

the people conceived of a new way.
