Be cleansed by the rains of refreshing,
That brings forth re-birth…

I love beautiful things. The flowers & trees, birds singing in the breeze. I can really get caught up in the vastness of nature & all its splendor…when I take the time to just sit & wonder.
Life can sometimes get so busy & crazy, it can be rather difficult to slow down & just be lazy.
But I challenge you today, take some time to refresh…slow down & just take a breath. Breathe in the freshness of life…you’re still here, so there are many reasons to fight…
Fight for your peace, your joy, to maintain your sanity. Don’t just do it for you, it will benefit ALL of humanity.
So pray for strength to rebel against life’s stress, & slow down & demand your rest.
Look up at the sky, the birds, the trees…& be thankful to be free to just…breathe ©2016 J. L. Hunt

Sometimes, I feel as if my imperfections dominate my entire being. Questioning every decision, every action. (Sigh) It can be quite exhausting. I also, often get weary with the taunting of waiting. Waiting for change, waiting for the sun to shine, for the silver lining to make sense of it all. So, I decided to share this poem in case others can relate.
Cracked & flawed am I, not by any means perfect
I fall & stumble…I ache when wounded.
I bellow out my worrisome woes,
My hurts, disappointments & fears…
The numerous sleepless nights, drowned in a pillow of tears
How long, how long I plea…
Must I endure the stress & strain of my agony
Like a bird with tattered wings I fly,
Lost in the sea of clouds that have overtaken the sky
Longing for the peace & rest that has gone askew…
The solace, strength & safety, that I once knew
Like shattered glass, I’m broken, jagged, distressed…
Surrounded by fractals & fragments of mess
Is there any hope? Am I a lost cause?
During this time of questioning & ranting, I was reminded of the truth…
