Sunday Solace

 

Well, my friends, what a week it has been!  I pray that our world can come together and I pray that peace, love and kindness may prevail - for all of us. 

Sometimes we may feel helpless and forsaken, and, yes, even angry, with events that happen around us, but we must each keep our own little candle burning,  to spread the light to others. Otherwise the haters will surely win. 

As a gentle reminder to us all, here is my Sunday Solace feature for today ...

"Dust if you must, but wouldn't it be better, to paint a picture, or write a letter,
bake a cake, or plant a seed - ponder the difference between want and need.

Dust if you must, but there's not much time, with rivers to swim and mountains to climb,
music to hear, and books to read - friends to cherish and life to lead. 

Dust if you must, but the world is out there, with sun in your eyes and the wind in your hair.  A flutter of snow, a shower of rain - 
this day will not come round again.

Dust if you must, but bear in mind, old age will come, and it's not kind, and when you go, and go you must, you, yourself, will make more dust."

I'll leave you today with these words by Mother Teresa...

"Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless."

I took an Autumn walk this week - not by the sea this time!  The last pic I found on Pinterest and I hope you like it as much as I did 🍁🍂

Thank you Odie. I just feel the world needs peace and kindness at the moment. There seems to be so much hate around at the moment. We have to get a grip on that. Hope you have a good week ahead, my friend.
