Things Great

The line in the sky where the rain ends

A lost memory taken back

A warm embrace

Sadness that evaporates without a trace

The freshness of the spring scent

Camping in a tent

Toasting marshmallows

Reminiscing about the places you went

The smell of fresh cut grass &

Filling a Glass

Filling someone’s glass

Knowing someone is at home

After spending too many years alone

Soaking in a hot tub

Hearing melodies from above

Running a Race

Slowing your pace

After being worked like it was a race

Things Great

A baby’s little coos

                        Getting good news

                        A hug from a stranger

Living life without danger!


Many friends in the end

Even if they did not believe

                        Things they could not see

Sights meant only for me

An afternoon nap on a couch

An afternoon nap on a couch

                        With the boy that you lost

                        who turned into a man,

and comes through in the end

Take away:

I often force myself to think about great things because sometimes, it improves my overall mood. Fond memories can literally transform a bad day into a good one. Try it out.

Genesis 7

11 In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, on the seventeenth day of the second month—on that day all the springs of the great deep burst forth, and the floodgates of the heavens were opened. 12 And rain fell on the earth forty days and forty nights.

13 On that very day Noah and his sons, Shem, Ham and Japheth, together with his wife and the wives of his three sons, entered the ark.

Genesis 1

14 And God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years, 15 and let them be lights in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth.” And it was so.
