The mug of cider simmered slow,
The apples sputtered in a row,
And, close at hand, the basket stood
With nuts from brown October’s wood.

  –John Greenleaf Whittier (1807–92)

Inspiring others towards happiness brings you happiness. 
Plain and simple.
The more you help others find their joy today,
the more you’re insured to experience a life worth living.

"What is the difference between an obstacle and an opportunity?
Our attitude toward it.
 Every opportunity has a difficulty, and every difficulty has an opportunity."
 ~J. Sidlow Baxter~

"A chip on the shoulder is too heavy a piece of baggage to carry through life."
~John Hancock~

Blessed In Aging

Blessed are they who understand
My faltering step and shaking hand
Blessed, who know my ears today
Must strain to hear the things they say.

Blessed are those who seem to know
My eyes are dim and my mind is slow
Blessed are those who look away
When I spilled tea that weary day.

Blessed are they who, with cheery smile
Stopped to chat for a little while
Blessed are they who know the way
To bring back memories of yesterday.

Blessed are those who never say
"You've told that story twice today"
Blessed are they who make it known
That I am loved, respected and not alone.

And blessed are they who will ease the days
Of my journey home, in loving ways.

~ ~ Esther Mary Walker ~ 

Life’s Raging Sea
The sea of life is raging,
with breakers all around
...trying, always trying,
to pull me from solid ground.
The waves lapping ‘round me,
...always moving, never still...
tugging at me always,
trying to change my will.
Whispering, shouting, screaming,
You can’t go on this way...
You can’t continue this struggle
day, after day, after day!
Then looking to the lighthouse,
I see the Answer there...
God’s Light is always with me
to handle my every care!
His Voice will calm the raging sea
...bringing it gently to the shore...
thus renewing my faith in Him,
...keeping me safe evermore!

I know some of you had problems viewing my page(s) yesterday. Getting blank images

and red X's. I have no clue what causes this and am not about to figure it out as it goes

away as fast as it arrives?? I do not do anything different daily when I insert various

things. So, in the future, try viewing in a different browser or return at a later time.

Sometimes this helps, sometimes not. Thank you.

Also, I will be making some nice changes now and then to my pages.

Not really eliminating, just good things. I want to let you know also that

in November I will be changing Internet provider and taking some time

away from making my pages to get organized. I will let you know soon

my intentions there. Thank you again.

Now, enjoy your day - it is almost the weekend. Very cool and windy here in Ohio

today. I think Winter is about to the door and is going to be knocking. Need to get

all the jackets and such out and ready to go! Be safe. Always be aware of everything

and everyone around you. Please do join me again tomorrow.
