Merry Christmas

Christmas Blessings

As we commemorate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ in a manger in a lowly stable in Bethlehem, I would like to  wish everyone a wonderful Christmas and a year filled with many blessings. May you all truly experience the true "Joy to the World" just as did  His Blessed Mother and the shepherds and the Wise men on that day so long ago!

A Dream

My Dream

I dream of a world of plenty
I dream of a world of peace
I dream of love unbridled
I dream that wars will cease.

 I dream of a world of caring
For all of God’s creation
Of harmony and freedom
For each and every nation.

I dream of a world of sharing
All good fortunes we receive
I hope and pray that this old world
Will PEACE - someday - achieve.

That “color” will not matter
And religion will not divide
That “right” and “wrong” will triumph
As we all stand side by side!

Managing Stress and Impatience

What I feared did not happen
What I imagined did not come through
What I dreaded did not materialize
All my lists just followed queue.
 I suppose I should be grateful
I know more that I thought I knew
This time my apprehension
Failed to raise a coup!
It stressed me out for nothing
It frazzled me to no end
I could have stayed unruffled
But I failed to comprehend
Life is what we make it
We fear what we don’t know
If we face it with timidity
It’ll defeat us just to show
Fear cripples our capacity
To be the best that we can be
It limits our potential
And zaps our energy.
It makes us question everything
We used to think was right
It makes us fear the future
And makes us run in flight.
We multiply the negatives
The bad things that could go wrong
 We cripple that great spirit
That used to be so strong
We conjure up scenarios
Of catastrophic mayhem 
It cripples our potential
And serves as our REQUIM!
