“A message of hope from the Angels” – by Brenda

.
.

Recently, the Angels channeled to me an inspirational quote about HOPE, which is one of the quotes that will be found in my new inspirational/spiritual quote book, soon to be published through Balboa Press: Hope is positive encouragement, a promise that something better will unfold, an unspoken anticipation and unexplained excitement that goodness is coming, that a possibility is emerging from something we thought was not possible

Hope Is… – by Marie Pollnow

..
Hope can give you love when you don’t feel it
.
She can give you comfort when things feel tough
.
Hope sometimes imposes when you don’t want her around
.
Yet she’s always there when you need her
.
.
Hope has a part in history
.
She grows when attention is received
.
.
Hope is there when someone you love transitions
.
Hope is there when you’ve lost your job and
.
She can bring you new life
.
And lessen the heartache
.
When you’re ready
.
.
Sometimes you do not feel her
.
Yet she remains in each breath you take
.
If she is forgotten you may
.
See her in a baby’s giggle
.
Or a bird hopping on the grass
.
And you remember she was always there
.
You only have to call on her
.
For she resides in your heart, the stars,
.
And anything you choose

Hope? – by David Franklin Farkas

No matter… We do live in interesting and alarming times. It seems the world has gone crazy, or at least crazier. Issues and people are polarized and people are doing horrible violent things in the name of their interpretation of religion and politics.
May you live in interesting times…
A time honored story says that phrase is a Chinese curse, but historical investigation say it’s not.

Hope’s Clad in April Green – by Andreas N. Bjørndal

“Hope’s Clad in April Green
.
This is the title of a novel by the Norwegian author Alexander Kielland (1849-1906). And I completely agree green is the colour of hope.
.
Nothing can bring more hope than the spring!
.
Seemingly dead trees, brown yellow soil and dry grass are magically turned into greens of all shades in spring. The dead mineralized earth wakes up from its winter sleep.
.
All of nature is springing forth with hope. Hope of new life among the animals in the forest, hope of a nice summer with the dropping of the winter clothes in cold climate areas. GreenHope of soon seeing all the beautiful flowers again, of barbeque, or sleeping outdoors, walking bare feet in the grass, of hiking in nature or swimming in warm water, or just lying in the sand as the sun embraces you with light, warmth and life.

Ripening – By Lee Pryke

The theme word this month is Develop. I’m excited to read the other writers take on this word, as it conjures up lots of things for me. Looking up the meaning there were plenty. …advance, establish, evolve, expand, flourish, grow, progress, promote, age, foster, maturate, mature, mellow, ripen, thrive, enroot, grow up…the words that jumped out at me in all of these was maturate, expand, and, ripen. So let’s go with that.

The Stages Of Life That Advance With Time by K.C.

When I think of life and how it develops as time goes on. I think of my children and how they have grown up from little tiny babies into beautiful young people. The process of life is an amazing development that we tend not to look at so deeply until we grow up into mature adults ourselves. We then ponder on what different stages are available for each individual and how we were a part of that process.

A Healthy Dose of Risk – by Mindy A. Early

We all have personal development goals.  Maybe you want to adopt a new habit, a new outlook, or a new skill?  How about moving to a new career or a new location?  Within the infinite possibilities of our lives, there are any number of next steps we can take.  What’s more, there’s no question that we want to achieve these goals; they come up in conversation, in our nightly dreams, and even in the things we see and hear around us.  When a desire won’t leave our minds, no matter how far-fetched it may seem, that’s confirmation that we do truly want it.

A Zen Hoof Print – by Bob Rush

Its been kind of a weird month. At my job, it’s foaling season and with that we wait with anticipation for the arrival of four foals. Been a busy time, with checks of the mares every couple of hours. My boss and mentor takes the lion’s share of the watch  and has us novices assist as needed. Very exciting time.

Develop Into A Better Person – by Frank

When I was a youth (pronounced “yoot” which rhymes with shoot or hoot) I used to begin scholastic writing assignments with the definition of the subject I was writing about. I mean the definitions make it sound like “develop” is a good thing, but then they use it in a sentence and it doesn’t sound so good. “The cancer developed over a three year period.” “As a result of the ruling, animosity between the two groups developed almost immediately.”

Feel and Become – by Kristine Grün

.

This months dual theme Feel/Become made me think of a very true statement: ‘Not until we are lost, do we begin to find ourselves’.
.
Being consiously ‘Lost’ is a feeling. We have to feel to begin to find ourselves. Tragicly this makes sense to me!
.
Do we have to be broken to build ourselves up again, by realistic measures, which we are now able to see? We have to be lost enough to bother..

ANI-SMILES – The : )’s Have It! – by Michelle

 

 

Have you ever noticed some animals seem to be smiling? Ani-Smiles are contagious—unless of course the onlooker is in an intensely pernicious snit, or an otherwise deeply dark disposition–otherwise smiles bounce blithely from one face to another. Smiles are akin to laughter that way, evoking a lighthearted response in all but the most sullen of people. And sometimes perhaps even them.
