"...When hopes soar, and thoughts flutter...
.....sometimes they land on a blog..."

A Scarrie View....

The mind is a mighty force that can change what our eyes see
it can lock open doors and keep our hearts from truly being free
yet the most frightening place we can ever stand
is where hope has been utterly abandoned.

Hope is like milk...you gotta have it to be strong and deal with the spooky things we face in this world.
Hope everyone has a wonderful Halloween.

Somethings Gotta Give Or I Wanna Refund!

I have two life long friends that are the world's worst givers of the lot!
One is Time he takes back too quickly what little that I got!
The other one is Gravity she keeps trying to give me more to carry!
Between the two, things are looking a little scary!

This poem is dedicated to my other old friend Metabolism.  We used to run the streets together, but now days she is feeling a little sluggish and down.  I think she needs a doctor.  I am hoping she has a quick recovery.

P.S. I have another friend named Menopause, but that is another poem all together.

Someone Elses Shoes

We travel the streets heading to our different destinations too many times unaware of the many conveniences and blessings that help us make the trip.  Like blinking,and breathing, we never take a second thought to it, we just blindly go on our busy way.  But we should be taking a second thought, and a third, fourth, and fifth, for there are many that do not have the same means that we do to get were they are going. They may not have a car,a home, or even a pair of shoes to protect their feet.
Recently, my church had a shoe drive for the homeless. We gathered together many shoes from different members of the congregation to provide for the homeless of Houston.  I could not help but think about the saying "walk 10 miles in someone else's shoes".  My grandmother had a plaque that hung from her livingroom wall that had that saying, and it always stuck with me.  We are always so quick to judge others without truly understanding their circumstance or background.  We would be giving our shoes and they would be walking 10 miles in our shoes, litteraly, yet we needed to be spiritually walking in theirs.  I just could not get that our of my heart and mind after that.  All I can really do is appreciate the many blessings that I do have in my life, and hope that when there is someone in need, I will be able to fill the shoes for what is needed in their life.
