A Lemon Tree Delivery

Posted by angela.grout@comcast.net on February 24, 2020 at 2:00 AM Comments comments (5)

She asked me to bring a lemon tree over. I carried the lemon tree to give to her as if it were an olive branch. 

It wasnt fromme, but I felt a part of its journey,

The kitchen was large and the countertops clearn. So shiny and new.

Inviting me in, eyes filled with wonder.

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

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

I politely 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."

The sunlight came through the window and illuminated a branch. It's leaf held a bud which would one day bloom to grow into the fruit that norishes more than just the soul.

She hugged me goodbye, and I began to cry.

Being the 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.

Some people only watch their life through a lens.

Others witness their life through their own lens.

But all people live their life in a lens, only they forget...For God is watching us.

Did you know in heaven we all have a twin soul?


Every memory we make on earth is brought into the heavens so we can use them to make even more.

Everything we put our energy into remains on earth to resonate the love we use to create it.

Every life we meet on earth has a purpose greater than we will ever know.

Every loving wish we have ever made comes true inthe heavens.

Hands and Shoulders Help

Posted by angela.grout@comcast.net on December 12, 2019 at 2:40 AM Comments comments (0)

Will you lay your head on my shoulder?

Will you let me comfort you with my love?


Do you need a friend to have only an ear, or will a hand do?

Do you know how much another hand can do?


Some things unfold according to its time, and other things reveal in time.

Some words are better left inthe silence of the fog.


Sharing faith through an action rather than a word can make the world a better place.

Sharing space inthe present can bring hope to a wound that needs to heal.


Lay your head on my shoulder, and know it's not just you who needed a hand.

Lay your wonder and worry, and doubt, and together we will find a plan.

Karma

Wishing Karma on someone is not something anyone can do.


Karma is natural.

Karma reacts in the manner in which it is welcomed.


The golden rule states to treat others as you wish to be treated.


The test of the golden rule is to treat someon as they treated you with the orgins of the only golden rule ever made, and that is to STILL treat them as you would want to be treated.


The result is KARMA.

Be a Magiv Maker.


The memories of yesteryears can only be enhanced, repeated, or enshired by those who not only remember the music but are willing to carry a tune.


Are you a magic maker?
