A Purple Tulip

Looking at this beautiful flower transports my thoughts to anything and everything that makes me smile. The color signifies nothing less than royalty. The richness of its stature speaks volumes, which goes in unison with its true nature.

The origin of this treasure has been cultivated for centuries and the name is derived from the Persian word for turban. Tulips come in a variety of colors, including different shades of purple.

I am envisioning a nice vase of different shades of purple tulips placed at the center of my dining table. The sight brings such joy and happiness. Its mere presence lightens the entire quarters. The faintest of hearts would be enlightened at such sight.

This particular color is a favorite springtime choice for many people. Their presence can symbolize nobility, stability, sentiments and love.

A Passion to Live

To be counted amongst the living is a blessing.
To be amongst the living gives you one more chance to be…
It’s another chance to bring that dream into existence.
That dream is worth pursuing.
Pursue it as though there is only today.
Yes, there is today because yesterday is gone.
Yesterday is gone therefore today is in the present.
The present is what you should pursue.
You should pursue it as if it was your last.
Make it count and leave a lasting legacy behind.
A lasting legacy that tells the world
You possess a passion to live.

Caught in the Rain

My dream was finally becoming a reality
Without having to plan it.
The perfect opportunity was present.
I looked up and opened my arms.
It was raining hard.
A dream come true.
My hair was perfect.
Dressed for an outing.
Crossed body purse and all.
It rained as if there was no tomorrow.
Such a joy, a moment filled with peace.
A needed refresher to my soul.
I walked a mile and back.
No need to rush.
This was my moment to smell the roses.
This was a personal moment between me and God.
I envisioned He was there with me.
It was a wonderful time to let go
Of any cumbersome thing.
That day I felt as an eagle soaring high.
Breaking through what holds the mind takes courage.
What an exhilarating feeling it was?
I promise myself this would not be my last.

God is in the Midst of All

As I look around me this 4th day of June, 2020, I believe that God is in the Midst of All. Through all the sorrow and pain we have all gone through, we are still standing as tall as our Statue of Liberty. I am filled with gratitude though also in pain. I choose to see through my pain and reach towards love, hope, peace and joy. Join hands with me in this venture. May we never let go of God’s unfailing Love in spite of….

Life is Rosy

Pink as a rose is life in which I live in.
I’m surrounded by beautiful nature.
I bring recognition to The Creator of all others.
Life would be otherwise had it not been for Him.
As I look upon a rose I see His face.
The smell of fresh air reminds me of His fragrance.
I am blessed to be among the living.
Making every day count is my personal endeavor.
I can’t help but see the bright side in all things.
As I sow profitable seeds I expect a profitable return.
My words create my world whether good or bad.
Life is as I see it, Pink as a rose.
