Prevailing over anxiety

Posted by angela.grout@comcast.net on January 23, 2022 at 7:00 PM Comments comments (320)

We must trust.

We must be trustful.

We must have faith.

We must be faith filled.

We must use our abilities to make a difference.

To fill the world with kind words, actions, and gestures.

This will prevail over any anxiety.

Rainbows

Some need rainbows.

Some need the signs.

Many need them to know me.

For I am the darkness that can see through the cloud.

My light shines even on the darkest of days.

In the darkest of nights, I find a way to lighten your heart... so that you may be light.

Do not fear me.

Fear only the fear of knowing life evolves at the right pace.

Peace be with you.

Fear be gone

If you have faith to move mountains, you must remember that this is what also removes our fear.

Let no fear hold you back from the truth.

Let no fear stop you from doing what is right.

Let no fear freeze you for your faith is strong.

When you remove the fear then the reality of the truth is all that remains.

The truth is love conquers.

The truth is love brings forth hope, guidance and peace.

The truth is love does not create fear.

Love shines like a flashlight in the dark when we most need light to calm the anxiety of our mind.

Know the light is always there, Breathe in.

Breathe out.

And release all doubt.

Accepting Yourself

Posted by angela.grout@comcast.net on January 23, 2022 at 7:00 PM Comments comments (8)

Did you know when you die your problems remain.

If you can't find peace on earth, know it is the same in heaven.

The truth is that being on good terms with people allows you the easiest transition to live your life fully in spirit and with spirit.

Yes, in heaven there is peace.

Peace comes as you melt into the oneness of creation.

Yet those that remember you will always remember if you had peace on earth, and peace with them,

Wishing you peace on earth this holiday season and always

. Now for the how: Getting peace on earth begins in your heart.

Accepting yourself, others and the world. And trusting acceptance doesn't always mean believing in certain values.

Acceptance gifts you peace. Peace to know you don't have to be judge, jury, or the change.

Peace allows you to follow your heart.

To know all are created with intention to be exactly who they are.

And that is perfect for them.

Maybe not perfect for you but know the grass is only greener when you care for your world.

Your world is the world.

Make it better by choosing to accept, love and be kind to all.

Retracting Hand

Posted by angela.grout@comcast.net on January 23, 2022 at 7:00 PM Comments comments (9)

Lives are lived. Stories told. Events unfold.

People grieve, people give, and friends share news that their life goes on and on.

Mistakes are not intentional.

No one is perfect.

Look in the mirror, and one should fall in love.

Even those that have violated you can love.

But forgiving them can only be done when they know they were wrong.

Hear the apologies from the sky.

The absence has only been to allow you to heal, to accept and to forgive.

People are genuinely good.

Friends only try and do what is right. Try to help.

Sometimes a helping hand goes too far, and sometimes not far enough.

So retracting the hand, there is a silent cry, waiting to know if you are alright.

Yet knowing everything will be right in the end.

Wash Away

Tears spill when words cannot, and sometimes they wash away the words that you would have rather not thought anyway.

A Reflection of Commitment~~Love honors as we love others~

Posted by angela.grout@comcast.net on January 23, 2022 at 7:00 PM Comments comments (12)

Did you know? Once you were just a snowflake.

A sight of wonder falling from the sky.

When you landed your beauty became one with the earth... And now, that snowflake has melted and left me with just a memory of awe.

I don't think about the cold as I stand by the fire.

I can't even feel the cold I close my eyes and feel every detail of you. Knowing that you have become a part of me.

That not only warms my heart but lights my path.

I will prepare.

I will help to heal you for you are in my soul and I cannot have any part of me broken. So I will love you.

I will forgive you.

I will accept we are where we are suppose to be.

I will only question if you know I too was a snowflake.

A Lemon Tree Delivery

Posted by angela.grout@comcast.net on February 24, 2020 at 2:00 AM Comments comments (1828)

I carried the lemon tree to her as if it were an olive branch. 

It wasn't from me, but I was a part of its journey,

The kitchen was large and the countertops shiny and new.

Inviting me in, my eyes filled with wonder.

Carefully I placed the gift on the counter nearest to me.

She smiled and asked, "What is that for?"

I smiled hello, and handed her a card.

It read: "Erma Bomback said that life is a bowl of cherries and if that is the case, then many believe it is the pits, but truth is life is like a lemon tree- Filled with Hope, Dreams, and Beauty for those willing to see. May you see the sweetness of lemonade as you watch this lemon tree grow."

Sunlight came through the window and illuminated one of the branches. It's leaf held a bud, which would one day bloom to grow into the fruit that norishes more than a soul.

She hugged me goodbye, I walked away and I began to cry.

For being a messenger is more than a job. It's a gift when the message is recieved.

The gift of the lemon tree has so much signaficance to see.


Do You Remember Your Dreams?

Do you remember your dreams?

Do you understand the lesson of which it brings?

Daniel could before he entered the Lion's den. 

And even then, he knew everyone has a purpose.

Every encounter has a reason, and every memory shares a lesson to find love meant to be shared.

Friends and Strangers

Meeting a stranger to share a thought, begins an act of friendship to which one may question whether they should have stopped.
