Positive Vibes For Monday Morning

Posted by mcm0704 on November 30, 2020 |

Well, my family and I got through the Thanksgiving Holiday, each of us celebrating as best we could. There was so much talk on our Zoom gathering, and in texts back and forth, about pumpkin pie and how some of us were suffering from pie depravation that one of my sons came to my house on Saturday; and we made pies. He took some home and also played Pie-Santa for two of his sibs.

Of course, we had to test the pies before he left.

Yes, it was as good as our taste buds were anticipating.

 

A friend sends me daily prayers and inspirational posts that most often really touch my heart and my soul. One of the things I particularly like about them is that they are not strident messages of judgment and damnation if you don’t believe the way the sender does, and they are very ecumenical in spirit.

In these times as we all deal with the effects of the pandemic and the social unrest around the world, perhaps we could all benefit from messages that lift our spirits. So here’s a snippet from one of those posts.

Some sentiments from a very wise woman:

“Keep praying, but be thankful God’s answers are wiser than our prayers.”

“I am not afraid of tomorrow for I have seen yesterday and I love today.”

“God does not send suffering. He sends help.”

This is another post sent to me by the same friend. It has been making the rounds on the Internet, but nobody seems to know the original author of the piece. It is another message worth sharing. 

Barely the day started and… it’s already six in the evening.

Barely arrived on Monday and it’s already Friday.

… and the month is already over.

… and the year is almost over.

… and already 40, 50 or 60 years of our lives have passed.

… and we realize that we lost our parents, friends.

and we realize it’s too late to go back…

So… Let’s try, despite everything, to enjoy the remaining time…

Let’s keep looking for activities that we like…

Let’s put some color in our grey…

Let’s smile at the little things in life that put balm in our hearts.

And despite everything, we must continue to enjoy with serenity this time we have left. Let’s try to eliminate the afters…

I’m doing it after…

I’ll say after…

I’ll think about it after…

We leave everything for later like ′′ after ′′ is ours.

Because what we don’t understand is that:

Afterwards, the coffee gets cold…

Afterwards, priorities change…

Afterwards, the charm is broken…

Afterwards, health passes…

Afterwards, the kids grow up…

Afterwards parents get old…

Afterwards, promises are forgotten…

Afterwards, the day becomes the night…

Afterwards life ends…

And then it’s often too late….

So… Let’s leave nothing for later…

Because still waiting see you later, we can lose the best moments,

the best experiences, best friends, the best family…

The day is today… The moment is now…

Before I close, I do want to mention a cool feature over at TopShelf Magazine, where my book Evelyn Evolving, is showcased with a number of other books. There are a number of genres listed, so there’s something for every reading taste, and they’re all bargain books. So, if you are in a book-buying mood, you might want to check them out. 

That all from me for today. I do hope you are managing to stay safe and well.
