Sending Warm Holiday Wishes ♥

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

It’s been three months since I’ve blogged
and I’ve missed you all! 
This acrostic poem is from last year,
but the meaning is just as sincere.
Some of you know why I’ve been absent and for now,
things are stable, but I’m still unsure about returning
to blogland. However, I couldn’t let this year end
without sending my sincere holiday wishes.
So, I wish for you Love, Peace, Hope and Miracles
this Christmas season and not only in the New Year to come,
but for forever~

Hugs and Blessings,
Lauren

May this holiday find you smiling

Enjoying priceless times with loved ones

Rejoicing in the birth of our Dear Savior

Realizing your blessings and finding peace

Yearning for the Holy birthday of the year

Caring for others who need their spirits lifted

Hosting family and friends in cozy gatherings

Remembering, a small act of kindness is a big gift

Imagining the festive spirit throughout the New Year

Seeing the delight and wonder through a child’s eyes

Taking time and letting God’s loving light shine through you

Making magical moments that will turn into precious memories

Allowing yourself tranquility in the midst of the seasonal chaos

Silently saying a prayer for those who are in need of God’s healing grace

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

MEMORIAL DAY MEMORIES AND WISHES XO

Hello Everyone,

I’ll be away this weekend spending
time with my Dad and Sisters,
so I’ll lose blogging momentum,
once again.
If I’m unable to catch up,
I hope your understanding continues
and I’ll see you next week.

Additionally, along with all
the bbqs, gatherings with family
and friends, I sincerley hope
we all remember what this
holiday is genuinely all about…

“OUR MILITARY GAVE UP THEIR TOMORROWS
SO WE COULD HAVE OURS”

It is the 
VETERAN
,
 not the preacher,
 who has given us freedom of religion.

  
It is
the
VETERAN,
not the campus organizer,
who has given us freedom to assemble.

   

It is
the
 VETERAN,
 
not the lawyer,
who has given us the right to a fair trial.

  It is
the
VETERAN,
 not the politician,
Who has given us the right to vote.

It is the
VETERAN
who
salutes the Flag,
 


 
It is
the

VETERAN
who serves
under the Flag,
 

 

ETERNAL REST GRANT THEM O LORD,

AND LET PERPETUAL LIGHT SHINE UPON THEM~

“THESE ARE TRUE AMERICAN IDOLS

BLESSINGS FOR A SAFE AND COMPASSIONATE

MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND~

A Tribute to Moms ♥

Making everything perfect with her loving care

She’s an unselfish soul and always “there”

Under her wing is abundant warmth and comfort

She shelters with grace to avoid any hurt

Like a rose, her beauty shines forever

Unlike its lifespan, her love never withers

She exemplifies a rainbow, beauty of many colors

Bold for self confidence, pastel for helping others

She cares for people, before putting herself first

Her heart’s full of kindness, joyfully eager to burst

With a butterfly’s elegance, she floats from task to task

Her smile continues from early dawn to dusk

She’s a daughter, sister, lover and friend

A gentle spirit and shoulder unto the end

She’s an angel on earth; her spirit is divine

She’s a lovely blessing and truly one of a kind

This is in loving memory of my Mom,
who passed away in February, to
my Mother-in-Law, who has
been missed for 20 years now,
a tribute to my sisters,
as they are wonderful Moms,

and to all the beautiful, hard-working Mothers
in the world~

Wishing you all a very Happy Mother’s Day!

Lauren ♥

 

Easter Blessings

“May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand”
(Irish Blessing)

Here are some cute Easter quotes; I hope you enjoy!

Everyone is entitled to a bad hare day.
Let happy thoughts multiply like rabbits.
Some body parts should be floppy.
Keep your paws off of other people’s jelly beans.
Good things come in small, sugar coated packages.
The grass is always greener in someone else’s basket.
To show your true colors, you have to come out of the shell.
The best things in life are still sweet and gooey.
My Father is visiting for a few days,
which is wonderful for all of us,
however, blogging will have to take a back seat.
I’ll do my best to catch up when I return,
but until then,
May the joy of the season fill your heart.
AND MAY GOD BLESS YOU! 
Happy Easter!
Lauren xx

A Valentine’s Day to Remember

May we hold close those in our lives
Who touch our hearts
Our husbands, our wives,
Our girlfriends and boyfriends
Our daughters, our sons
and our very best friends
Our sisters and brothers
Our fathers and mothers
Even the furry companions
Who add joy to our days
To those who have passed
We give God praise
for the love they gave
To anyone unmentioned
in this Valentine greeting
We give thanks for your love
For your presence and hugs
Let the Valentine banner be unfurled
And if we could, we’d give them the world

I will be slowly responding to your wonderful,
supportive comments, and then I’ll get
back into the blogging routine…
I wish you all a loving Valentine’s Day♥

FREEWAY MADNESS HOLIDAY HAIKU TRILOGY

These were written for fun, but, honestly,
holiday travel can be a bit daunting,
even though we love road trips!
Hope you enjoy! 🙂

I. OBSERVATION

Driving or flying?
Benefit of tailgating?
Reckless road traveled

II. CONSTRUCTIVE CHANGES

More Innovation
Eco friendly progression
Helping Mother Earth

III. NIGHT ROLLING

Black sky surrounding
Red eyes watching us closely
Keeping our distance

Ringing in 2012!

It’s no surprise 365 days
have come and gone
in the blink of an eye
We wonder and ponder over time spent
and how it went so fast
Some days passed at a snail’s pace
but we seem to race the clock
on the good ‘ol days

If you believe in resolutions,
though, this is no substitution,
Let’s write a new creed…
Enjoy each day to its fullest
not thinking about tomorrow
Don’t borrow the future
Embrace the present
and repent, if you must
Learn to trust more often
Allow a new door to open
and relationships to deepen

Of course, this is a recurring creed,
yet, it fits for each year,
Don’t you agree?
So, let’s try again, My Friends,
with champagne, clinking glasses
and celebrations in the masses
No matter your new goal
Let the New Year roll in
with Smiles, Aspirations,
Hope and Inspiration~

Cheers and Happy New Year, Everyone!

Final Post for 2011…Happy Holidays and Happy New Year! :)

Hello Everyone,

It’s time to say “farewell” for only a short time,
as the holiday festivities begin.
We are hosting, then visiting family out of town,
so computer time will be limited.
After the new year, I will do my best to play “catch up” with
posts and awards, but please have patience~  🙂

So…here’s another Christmas, Holiday wish to each and every one of you.
May your holidays be filled with peace, love and joy!
I can’t say “farewell” without saying “thank you” for all your comments, likes and recognitions.
This poetry blog has become more than I ever thought it would be,

all because of you!

Warm wishes, hugs and a safe, Happy New Year
and I’ll see you in 2012!

Lauren
