My Life Is My Masterpiece ~ Lessons Learned

My theme ~ Lessons Learned.  I’ll be posting a word that begins with each letter of the alphabet that fits my theme.   This blog/website has become one way to share about myself to my children, my grandchildren and my extended family who are scattered all over the country and the world.  Hopefully, anyone who reads this will be in some way blessed by my throwing my words out onto the World Wide Web and into the Universe.  

 My About Page gives me the focus so that, as I age, I don’t forget what I worked so hard to learn.  It’s going to be fun and challenging!   I hope you’ll stick with me as I strive to meet my goal!!

Masterpiece and Work in Progress

ARRIVAL ~ I’ve arrived at a place where looking back on the good and the bad along the way brings me a sense of peace and contentment.  I recognize the girl, daughter, sister, woman, wife, mother, aunt, grandmother and friend who traveled down these paths to be a strong human being who had her own sense of self always at the core of her life.  A human being who decided to face life’s challenges with an attitude of hope and perseverance.  It’s good to look back and to see that you’ve arrived at a good place in spite of those times of self-doubt and wavering.

As you grow older
You become wiser
You mature and realize your potential
The greatest gift of time, however, is that you discover your true inner strength and beauty which was
always within you but hidden before.
Look back on your life as the story of you.
Look forward to new adventures.
You’ve worked hard and prepared the way for some of the best days of your life.

A Modern Psalm By Melodie Elaine Estes

Another sunless cloudy day in Virginia. I’m so grateful to be connected in so many ways with people who lift my spirits and center me in the calming awareness of Love.

I think most everyone who knows me knows that I am a Christian. I have never been one to push my faith on anyone. I believe that the Creator, God, Spirit or however you know Spirit loves his creation, whatever method was used to create it. I believe our mission is to spread that love and try to help others as the Creator wants us to.

I have seen people change when they are sick, scared, and hurt, but I also have seen people change when they are loved and accepted for who they are by another person. We have so much more power to change the world than we realize but more importantly we have to change ourselves or others will not change.

This blank verse was written when I taught a Sunday School class on what a psalm is. I doubt very seriously that God cares about form…

I’d like to add these words by Thich Nhat Hanh:

“In a time of anger or despair, even if we feel overwhelmed, our love is still there. Our capacity to communicate, to forgive, to be compassionate is still there. You have to believe this. We are more than our anger, we are more than our suffering. We must recognize that we do have within us the capacity to love, to understand, to be compassionate, always.”

I read a BBC News article about how Canadians are coming together in FaceBook groups for “caremongering” instead of scaremongering. People are reaching out to help and support those in need and also to connect with old friends, distant relatives and neighbors.

There is a movement of kindness evolving and growing. I lifts my…

A huge thank you

So many people who are stepping up so we can carry on. Pied Type’s another blog I’ve been following since 2015. The message of the cartoon ~ Don’t judge a person that you see with two carts filled with toilet paper. Their intention might be way different than you’re labeling them with.
Hang in there! Stay well!

Consider this a note of deep respect and appreciation to all those on the front lines fighting this coronavirus threat:

And an equally big note of appreciation to thoughtful neighbors everywhere who are sharing their supplies with others, offering to shop for them, and checking on them to make sure they are okay.
