It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and admire nature such as a beautiful butterfly or a fresh breeze that can do wonders for the soul .
To me one of the most relaxing things is to sit outside when there is a breeze. I’ll even close my eyes and just focus on it. There is something about it that is so comforting, not only to provide coolness when it’s hot out, but comfort for the soul.
Today is the second anniversary of my sister’s death and I remember when a breeze (and a butterfly) comforted me when I was grieving the loss. I wrote a poem about it.
The Butterfly and the Breeze
Their beautiful and colorful wings
Take them high and low, they are free
Fluttering all around us
It is not an uncommon thing to see
But I know on this one day
It was not just a butterfly
In my confusion and dismay
It was my sister stopping by
It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and let our imaginations run free.
Imagining is not just about make believe. It can also be about experiencing something that is yet to happen.
We can imagine while we’re driving to a restaurant a big juicy veggie burger (ha! gotcha there with the “veggie” part, didn’t I?). By imagining it we can see it, get excited about it, and even just about taste it.
If we have a speech to make we can imagine ourselves sweating in front of the group and forgetting most of the words.
It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and just be.
In the United States people are celebrating Memorial Day this weekend. My family was going to celebrate some birthdays but now it looks like we’ll be waiting until next weekend. So instead I think we’ll hang out, go for a walk, enjoy the beautiful weather, and take time to…just be.
It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, read a little poem and meet Cino as dun, dun, dun, dun…Animal Paladin!
(In case you don’t know, because I didn’t, Paladin means leading champion of a cause, hero, devoted to kindness.)
TRYING TO SAVE THE DAY
Animals of all sizes and shapes,
The dogs, cats, lions, and apes
Intended by God to be blessed,
And instead are being oppressed
Listen up, don’t you fear,
The AAFBT team is here
With Super Animal Paladin,
Doing a lot of the battling
It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and listen to a story by me. 🙂
Yesterday was good old Dr. Seuss’s birthday! So I made my own online little rhyming book in honor of him.
This is my first attempt at making something like this where I use my voice and my own images. I found out I still have a lot to learn. The images don’t seem to view very clearly on all screens sizes. But never fear, I am sharing each story page first so you can see them clearly.
So presenting the short rhyming story…The Cat In The Hat (my version).
