This Gratitude

A L O H A !
Thank You Lord by Bob Marley & The Wailers on Grooveshark

"For each new morning

 with its light, 

For rest and shelter of the night,

Battery Operated Sandwich

For health and food,

 for love and friends, 

For everything 

Thy goodness sends."

Ralph Waldo Emerson

  > < } } (°>

Gotta treat this Gratitude stuff 
with respect:
Handle it With Care.

It takes one's life quite over
morphs from 
"something you're doing"
to Something that's
 Doing YOU!

Powerful Evident Embracing
a life in the suburbs of Heaven.
Even 'deal breakers'
like loss, the feared,
and unexpected
are embraced, absorbed,
subsumed in this
 Powerful Truth.

That's my experience,
and I'm hanging on to it.
Why not?
Gives me more
than worry ever did.

What say YOU?

Why is there a battery in that piece of bread?

Love the Energy Bread in the midst of the suburbs of Heaven. Still using your bread maker? Please remove batteries before disposing the bread into your tummy! DrumMajor

When you can embrace the good and the bad of life, and accept it's just part of our journey, I'd say that makes you very enlightened, Cloudia.

I'm still laughing over the battery-operated sandwich! :)

Daryl said...

is that bread rechargeable?

Samantha said...

I laughed out loud at the sandwich! Now we know why bread sometimes has those holes...I wasn't making sandwiches right!

Battery operated sandwich is new to me.

Cloudia said...

Thanks ladies

Adam said...

I recognized the characters for wind and horse. Though I learned it through Japanese words "kaze", and "uma" as the characters mean the same in both Japanese and Chinese.
