"Its gonna be a bright, bright, sunshiny day." :)

"As long as there is love and faith thriving in your heart ...there will be company in times when your alone. There will be strength to overcome all obstacles. There will be wellness to heal all ills. There will be peace to relieve all doubts and ease your soul. " ~ May blessings of comfort always be yours. Rhonda Redbird cherokee/choctaw

The warrior does not always have Faith. There are times when she believes in absolutely nothing. She asks her heart: “Is all this effort really worth it?” And her heart remains silent. But The Warrior continues despite her lack of faith. She goes forward, and in the end, Faith Returns.

I walk in Peace ƸӜƷ˜”*°•♥ Adversity melts away as I remember the spiritual reality underlying all things. I claim my right to divine comfort, divine harmony, divine health, divine wealth. I release all apparent discord into the healing care of the universe, trusting completely in the larger good that is unfolding. Divine calm centers my heart in its loving presence. I relax. Remembering I am sourced in divine protection. I breathe in contentment and well-being. I am held in the heart of God. All things work toward the good. As I embrace my part in a larger and holier whole, that whole embraces me. This unity is a great blessing which brings peace and comfort to my heart. ~ Loana Morgan

NO matter what, I AM a SURVIVOR !!! WHO chooses to THRIVE !!! ♥♥♥♥

Morning has broken, like the first morning Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird Praise for the singing, praise for the morning Praise for them springing fresh from the Word Sweet the rain's new fall, sunlit from heaven Like the first dewfall, on the first grass Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden Sprung in completeness where His feet pass Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning Born of the one light, Eden saw play Praise with elation, praise every morning God's recreation of the new day Morning has broken like the first morning Blackbird has spoken like the first bird Praise for the singing, praise for the morning Praise for them springing fresh from the Word ~ Cat Stevens

The Nectar of Life Love is like a humming bird. If you try to cage the humming bird it will die. Love can not be ordered around. Love can not be one way. Love can not be trapped behind a door. Love can not be force fed the nectar of life. True love must be given and received freely, purely from the heart and spirit. You can not put a price on true love. There is nothing you can do to force any living thing to love you. True love will always have the door open as doors are made to swing both ways. True love will be secure and humble enough to say hello and good bye when the humming bird passes through to enjoy the nectar of life. A love rooted in falseness and insecurity can not say good bye to the humming bird so it resorts to caging this beautiful free spirited animal. In reality and in truth, Creator created all living things with a free spirit. Can you think of one creature that enjoys life in a cage? Of course not! So why is it then that the humming bird will always return to where it finds it's sweet nectar? Yes, you know it. There is no price on the nectar, no conditions, no expectations, it is free and is sweet. It has been said by our ancestors that we two leggeds learn from the animals, these teachings we call medicine. So what is the teaching of this story? The love we keep in our house must be sweet, unconditional, fresh and pure, it must be free in any way of entrapping the other. Otherwise, at the first sign of a locked gate or a closed mind, the humming bird is in distress and will flee the cage or home the moment the door is left open, no matter how sweet the nectar. Love is a spiritual medicine and we are spiritual beings who need love. Love can heal us in our mind, body, spirit and soul. Love is like a continuity between us as spiritual beings and Great Spirit, it keeps us all connected. If love is removed from the circle of life it is like removing the Sun from the Earth. Growth stops and life struggles to live in the darkness and bitter cold. It is taught by the elders that darkness can never remove light but light will always remove darkness. It is also taught by the elders that love is slow to anger, love is forgiveness, love does not remember wrongs. Love is quick to listen and slow to speak, love is not forced or taken physically but given spiritually and divinely. Love is the nurturing medicine that thrives in our mind, body, spirit and soul. Love is the life force running through our spirit and our blood that Creator has given us, it is a true and divine gift from Creator. Love is like the Sun in how it helps a tree to grow up strong and be deep rooted to with stand any storm. Love is the nurturing force that helps all life to grow strong and be stable, to be balanced. Without the Sun a tree will wither away and without love a relative will do the same. So I pray with Great Spirit, let your love shine like the Sun and enjoy the love it creates in your circle of life. ƸӜƷ˜”*♥
