Earth Angel

Dear Inner Child,

         Hi honey!  Do you have any clue how special you are?  No, of course you don’t.  Your “lovability” quotient, your worth, has nothing, zero, zilch to do with the people around you. The Universe adores you, precious angel, and is gifting you this very instant with even just your breath.  

         Angels are breathing air into your nostrils to fill your lungs.  And they are hovering around you like “helicopter angels,” making sure everything is functioning properly for you to survive.  Little Aunties and Grandma and Poppy angels too.  You mean the world to them!  Why?  Well because only you are you.  There’s never been and never will be another.  You are something utterly new, fascinating even. Their gaze fixed lovingly upon you, they are smiling and just so happy you got up today!  They gave you a gentle nudge, you just didn’t feel it, but it got you going.  

          They need you to do what you will, this day.  Your guardian angels think so highly of you! They have no human eyes, ears, arms, legs or bodies.  The world is a place they will never inhabit.  They need you to live, and pray you will live well and long.  So be an angel on earth for them!  They find you heavenly and love you truly.

                                                                   Love from, Future You.

Freedom for Rainbows

If we could, would we…

 Tell a star,

Not to shoot across the sky?

Not invite all their friends,

To  come out after dark?

Prevent a rainbow from stretching,

Arm long,

Through firmament…

 Instead, stealing pot of gold?

 

Unfair as,

Clipping child’s angel wings,

Curbing sweet dreams…

Only biting words,

And unbroken silence,

Swallowing their mirth…

 

JUST BECAUSE CAN.

 

Thankfully God fortifies children,

Rainbows and shooting stars,

With splendid and resilient spirits;

Colorful and glorious,

When unmuted.

 

We can’t stop rain clouds  from crying…

But if rainbows and shooting stars,

Have full license to shine,

Would not God’s children,

Most adored and protected,

Also get their time?

 

Rainbows of joy, love and freedom,

For all God’s children,

To come… 

After the rain.

Forever God’s Children

Children are born,

With what lessons to learn,

We may never know?

These are their lessons to learn from and grow.

 

These are their struggles,

This is their pain,

Their triumphs,

Their victories and gains.

 

This is their path they must walk,

Often alone,

From their fresh clean start,

Till their old, worn out soles.

 

From innocent beginnings,

With knowledge may they grow,

In compassion, wisdom and faith,

The whole world to show.

 

So don’t be afraid you can’t love them enough,

To take away their every pain.

Remember, most loving Ma and Pa,

In pain there is gain.

 

With confidence and compassion,

May they grow up strong yet soft of heart,

For one without the other,

Is a miserable lot.

 

Fighting past their demons,

And mastering their shadow,

With brave steps, false steps, back steps,

And small steps.

 

At the end of the day,

Life will not leave them high and dry,

God’s love is right there,

 

 

However far off,  wide or high, deep or steep,

Or solid the brick wall,

Placed firmly at their feet…

 

Their success in assured.

God’s love, direction and protection,

Is for your precious child,

Forever theirs to keep.
