A Lemon Tree Delivery

Posted by angela.grout@comcast.net on February 24, 2020 at 2:00 AM Comments comments (1748)

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.

Life in a Lens

Do you watch your life through a lens?

Do you witness your life through your own lens?

Do you remember that all life is in a lens?

Lest we forget, God is watching.

Twin Soul

A twin soul lives above and every memory on earth is carried to the heavens to create balance.

Everything we put our energy into remains on earth radiating our spirit.

On earth, every life we meet has a purpose greater than we will ever know.

Every loving wish comes true in the heavenly places wich our love goes.

Hands and Shoulders Help

Will you lay your head on my shoulder?

Will you let me comfort you with my love?


Do you need a friend to have an ear?

Do you know how much another hand can do?


Things unfold at the right time, and other things reveal in time.

Often words are better left in the silence of the fog.


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

Sharing space in the present does bring hope to heal a wound..


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.

What a difference a decade makes...not the years...the Prayers!

Karma

Posted by angela.grout@comcast.net on December 7, 2019 at 2:50 AM Comments comments (3)

Wishing Karma on someone is not something anyone can do.

Karma is natural.

Karma reacts in the manner in which it is welcomed.

Obeying the golden rule to treat others as you wish to be treated.

Testing that rule often creates someone to treat you with the orgins of the only gold rule ever made.

And that is STILL, to treat them as you would want to be treated.

Tha is the result is KARMA.

Be a Magic Maker

Allow the beautiful memories of yesteryears to be enhanced, repeated, or enshired for those who wish to remember the music, and are willing to carry a tune.

Are you a magic maker?

Alignment

There is a time when the universe aligns and you know everything will be just fine.

That moment occurs when you live in the moment without hesitation and embrace the flow.
