Meet Felicity

2017-05-025

On this very fine day

a tiny flower blossomed

from where she came

there was no longer room

her stay was complete

loved ones longed to see her face

with their arms they would embrace

the flower they were given

on this very fine day in May…

                                         r gould

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;

your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in that secret place.

When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,

your eyes saw my unformed body.

All the days ordained for me

were written in your book

before one of them came to be

Psalm 139:13-16

My Roots

I have previously shared that I like to collect postcards. It is not an obsessive hobby and there have been times in life that I did not bother with them. I will call it a casual hobby. I do participate with Postcrossing and it is so much fun to receive postcards from other countries. Along with this I also have a deep appreciation for vintage postcards. Life for me began in the community of Palm Springs, California, the year of 1951. I am a vintage along with the cards… Here and there I have picked up  postcards of Palm Springs.

On Christmas Day it will be a year that we have lived in Oregon. Yesterday, we had a new experience in a large city. The hustle and bustle of city life is not for me, but I can appreciate sight-seeing and capturing what I can with my camera.

life

Seasons

seasons come and go

we wish for them to end

and move on..

anxiously waiting for coolness, for warmth,

for color, for change

are we ever content?

life, new life, death, new death, lives forever changed

we are seasonal beings,

we get tested

we get irritable

we procrastinate

we want and we want and we want, What?

season’s will groom us, prepare us for change

embrace change, embrace the season’s…of life…

The change of season’s can bring out the best in us or not. Today I look at it as the season’s of our lives. Youth and aging. I want to embrace what comes my way with gratitude.Do I always..no, but I strive for a better outlook. This free write spurns from hearing about the passing of two young men.. It happens each and every day. Their season on earth is complete but not gone in our hearts. There is an appointed time for every event under heaven.. Ecclesiastes
