'Fairy Garden Pond'

It is the middle of the day and the sun is up, I am rocking in my Rocking Chair admiring my Fairy Garden Pond.

The Flowers and the bushes surround the pond filled with Koi which are my pride and joy.
The Hardy Hibiscus have bloomed in pinks, red, and white flowering lovely in the beautiful sunlight.

I sit still, listen and watch hoping to see a Fairy sitting on a Lilly Pad or even a little Frog would make me glad.
I have a Mommy Bunny that had babies in my Fairy Garden and I carefully sit still and watch them hopping under the bushes playing in the Sun.

The Ornamental Grasses stand at least seven foot tall and sway back and forth in the wind while the Finches eat the seeds so high above.

I love my time sitting in the Sun rocking gently in my old Rocking Chair thanking God above for the beauty he has bestowed upon me.

'A Meeting At the Dog Park'

I once met an unusual man full of love for animals and people. His name was Big Daddy Cash which I found quite different.
We met at a Park where people let their dogs play together. We sat and talked for a while about our lives and where it had led us. He told me of his unusual and descriptive past and I was fascinated listening to his story.
He had lived quite an unusual life compared to other people, he had many ups and downs, compared to other people more downs than ups until recently. He had started a business and he became someone that he didn't know he could be.
People began looking up to him and wanted to learn from him. He knew that his past had made him what he had become and was thankful for his past learning experiences althought not all of them were good.
We called our dogs to us and as he was walking away he said that he would meet me back at the Park and gave me a wink. I knew then that he was a good, happy man and a flirt to go with his personality.
I was anxious to meet him again and sit and talk about our past lives as we got to know one another. As we said our good-byes he walked away and turned around a gave me a wink as if to say, "I hope to see you another day."

'A Letter from Your Friend in Spirit, Eric Sumner'

Dear Rachel,

I loved your visit tonight. Friends mean everything, especially when you are growing up. Choose good friends and make good choices.

Be happy, take life minute by minute and you will be less stressed.
Be a lady, don’t follow in the footsteps of those that are bad influences.

Remember the things that we talked about when you were sitting in the chair
and I was on the couch. You have all the time in the world for boys, enjoy
life and love your family. Family means everything, be there for one another.
I love you and want to see you smile and be happy. I want to leave you with a poem for you to remember. Let your light shine.

I am in your heart,
I am in your eyes,
I am in your thoughts
there are no good-byes.

I will be watching over you as your Guide and best friend.

Eric Sumner

Eric Sumner was hit and killed by a drunk driver driving a large truck at a party. He became angry and drove through the crowd running down Eric in all his fury and drunkeness.

This letter was given to me from Eric Sumner through his thoughts to my daughter Rachel Farly who was one of his best friends along with Darrell Grafton.

'A Tribute to Donald Eugene Wilcox'

Who could find such a friendSo dear?
It would be an endless Journey I fear.

The one I'm speaking of has Many names.
He is known as Father, Brother, Uncle,
Teacher, and most of all Friend.

The one most of all on his love could depend.
His laughter, his joy, his pureness of heart
has blessed our lives right from the start.

He knows no selfishness, and glows From within.
He has shared his love without ever finding fault.
He has allowed us to find our way in life watching
carefully to give a helping hand.

Our love to you our dearest friend Can only be
measured from deep within.

We know you are leaving us to go to the Light,
but our love will follow you for the rest of our life.

Your shining example we'll never forget.
The kindness you've shown all through your life has
touched so many, You are the love of our lives.

We honor and praise you for the love you have shared.
May God bless you on your Journey to him.
I know He is waiting for his Best Friend.

As you look down from Heaven above, we'll feel the
warmth from your smile and if you see us in a mess,
send us your love and say "God Bless."

Dear Aunt Barbara, my Mother's Sister.

'Lifes Journey

As I journey through this life, I find it full of love and strife.
My outlook changes from day to day, rearranging the words I say.

If I am happy I spread cheer, love and light to all those who are near.
If I am down then I fear that my thoughts will drown those who are dear.

Looking upward to the sky, I look for that one star that catches my eye.
Winking in it’s golden light, I sense it’s connection through the night.
As the Universe and the moon ebbs the tide, I feel its closeness where I reside.

My feelings of love, despair and joy are controlled by my thoughts, if I allow
them to run amuck.

Life is made up of thoughts and wishes, and drives your heart to follow
where it must.

Think with love, compassion and joy. Listen to the vibration of the God
force within as it vibrates to the music that the Angels send.

On the wings of a dove oh so kind; our love could be wonderful if we would
listen not only to our mind, but to our heart that is so divine.

I must listen to the song within, cherishing each moment that the morning brings and see the light that makes my heart sing.

Quietly I look inside to feel a peace that will bring me cheer to share with others who are near praying that my love spreads peace, joy and happiness.

'Promise Me Love; Show Me No Lying Eyes'

At the alter you said, “I do,” meaning that you would be true to me, and I to you.

After years of love and fun you forgot, that I was that one with love in my eyes and would be true to you.

Rock me baby in your arms, rock me baby with all your charms.
The one who loves you with all her heart, the one who trusted you from the start.

Look into my eyes and tell me no lies, for I would rather die than see your lying eyes.
Love runs deep within my veins, I’d rather forgive than our marriage change.

Tell me you love me after all, and that your mistake was your downfall.
Broken hearted though I may be, my heart still holds it's love for thee.
Promise me there will be no more, and I will forgive you and cry no more.

Questions of why and how it could happen will always haunt me as I close
my eyes to try to sleep.
Broken promises please no more; or I will have to walk out the door.

Love can only stand one pain and then I will never forgive again.
Hold me in your arms and promise me no more harm and I will forgive you as I lie in your arms.

You rock my world when I am with you. You rock my world when I am feeling blue.
You rock my world with all of your charms.

As the Angels sigh of our love growing nigh, it is up to you to rekindle our closeness from on high.
Pray for forgiveness to the one above as he is the one to rekindle our love.
I love you my darling when you are nigh.

God bless us on our journey on Earth, for you are the one I want to be with.
Rock me baby in you arms, rock me baby with all your charms.
I am your Angel and long to be the one that holds your hand eternally.

If reincarnation is a fact, I would choose to come back.
I would prepare in my Mother's womb, an outlook on life
that would assume a life of love and inquisitiveness.

I would open my eyes wide at birth and then give the Doctor
a little smirk, a small cry at the lights so bright;
and then a smile to begin my life.

Knowing what lay ahead, I would plan a life so grand that
each life I touched would remember me;
and know how I had touched their life so tenderly.

Looking back one more time I knew in my heart that love was mine;
to share and cherish with others so dear, a blink of an eye
and a day of cheer.

Reincarnation is a fact, but proving it cannot be exact.
Each beginning is a new life to finish sharing love and light,
learning lessons and showing God that I share his light.

'Kisses of Love'

Whisper softly in my ear those sweet words I love to hear.
Hold me gently in your arms, so I can feel your love,
your heart beat, and all your charms.

Kiss my lips with all your love sending chills from Heaven above.
Say you love me and tell me I am yours, to love and cherish forever more.
Dance the dance of love with me, blending our Spirits as you feel me breathe.

My love for you has no end; it’s only your love upon which I depend.
I am sending you kisses of love to let you know what I am
trying to convey.

You are my lover, my best friend and the man in my life upon whom I depend.
I love you with all my heart sending you kisses of love until
you return home tonight.

'We the People; United We Stand'

We the people united we stand, shoulder to shoulder holding one another’s hand.
We the people the melting pot of the world are standing idly by as the War is unfurled.

We the people 'Big Brothers of all Countries' can not sit and watch as our young people, our fathers, mothers, brothers and sisters fall onto a foreign soil not to come home. Some are maimed by the War forever not to walk again, or even perhaps not to talk always watching their back afraid of what is to come.

How much hatred and violence must they experience before their minds become sick with a terrible fear that they can not bear.
How many loved ones do we need to lose until we stand up to the President and say, "Enough is enough."

End the War; bring our people home before we lose our most precious prize, 'Dignity and Pride' for the Love of our people.'

'Dignity and Pride,' our people whom we love so much are giving their lives for weapons not to be found. Oil wells to be burned despite our countries need; still
we stay and fight quite needlessly.

We the people want our 'Dignity and Pride' to step up and let the people of Iran run their own Democracy and stop playing Chess with one another’s men.
We the people must speak our mind and when it comes time to vote change our President's mind.

We the people are just as responsible for not forcing the President’s hand to sign an agreement to step out of Iran and Afghanistan.
Bring our soldiers home back to their jobs, back to their loved ones before one more Soldier falls on foreign soil only never to come home, and stand and tell all about the needless War.

Our soldiers have spoken; and want to come home, saying the War is not playing a game; spoken words of hatred and shame.
How can we win when Suicide bombers are at every turn waiting for us or their own people to be burned?

We the people must step up to the front and speak loudly and clearly saying, “Mr. President, admit that you are wrong. Your intentions to keep this War ongoing is so terribly wrong."

We the people must band together and sign petitions, and write to our Senators to end the siege that has befallen many of our very own men, who have children, wives and families left to make it on their own without their loved ones to come home.

We the people have a voice if we are brave enough to speak out; and not to sit back as we watch the War killing both women and children from Iran and Afghanistan; people who can’t stand and fight for themselves.

We the people owe it to our own men to stand and fight on our own land with words of shame and disdain against a War that needs ended this very day.
Stand up and clap if you agree that banded together we can bring our soldiers home and honor them with love and gentle care for all they have witnessed and had to bear.
Come together and help end this war so that our families can be together once more.

'That's My Da-a--ddy'

Yesterday my husband and I were driving
through the beautiful country side looking
for flowers in bloom and new leaves unfurled.

All of a sudden my husband stopped and
turned the car around and then parked.

With his mouth open as if he were surprised
and not saying a word he pointed his finger
at a man in a field standing in the midst of
some sheep. He said, "Look at that man!"

This man seemed to be concentrating
on one sheep and I watched in awe
not knowing if I should make a peep or
just look away.

We drove into the driveway where the
man must live and I knocked on the
door hoping that someone was inside.

Much to my surprise a young boy about
nine years old opened the door with
white curly hair and said, "Yes-s, what's the

I explained to him that there was
a man in his field with his sheep and
that perhaps he might want to tell
his Daddy.

He smiled with pride and said, "Oh,
that-t's okay, that-t's just my Da-a-ddy!"

'A True Friend'

A true friend is one whom you can rely on
when times are hard and you feel like crying.

Cherish your friendship for there is a bond that
none can claim.

'Playing In the Sand'

Still small with dark curly hair I loved to play in the sun.
Sitting in the sand box and building a castle, I dreamed one day
of living a life of lying in the Sun, soaking up the rays and having fun.

I grew older and understood that life was not about playing in the sand;
living in a castle and having fun in the sun.

Then one day I met a Prince who stood over me while lying in the sand.
I glanced up at the shadow above me, feeling my heart beating madly as he held
out his hand.

We looked into each other's eyes as I took his hand; then we laughed as we ran
remembering the days of playing in the Sun.

We instantly bonded and felt that feeling of love knowing that one day our
children would be playing in the Sun.

'Pearls In The Sand'

Universal thoughts transpire as you look at me not truly knowing how deep our feelings could be, as deep as the pearls in the ocean deep or lying in the sand and the heat.

Emotions of love and passion gamble among the reactions of what your heart shows and our actions to one another as our love grows.

Deep in our soul within and without lies the truth waiting for true love to find it’s way out.

Learning to live with one another’s faults, we wait to see if true love results.

Deep in the ocean there lies a pearl that has the wisdom for your answers to unfurl. The softness and the effervescent glow give way to your answer as you look within.

Our love will grow and shine as the pearl is waiting to be found.

Love is blind, yet you can see; you can feel and know that we are meant to be.

Time is precious and true friendship is hard to find as you look into my eyes and see what lies behind my smile and hopes to begin.

Day’s and nights blend as one, as our love unwinds we become one, your eyes smile at me, and my heart melts with love.

Emotions and reactions all come into play as we find our love grows stronger for one another each day.

Remember the pearl as it weathers the storm lying within its shell, waiting to be found and polished as well.

My love will never weaken with time, I am yours and you are mine.

Holding me close to your heart, I feel safe within and know that our love will never end.

Peace and harmony we have found just as the perfect pearl in the sand.

Touching is the secret of holding love in your hand, as precious as the pearl in the sand.

'Idle Chatter'


As you sit near, you hear me say,

"Did you forget to wash today?'

Dry the dishes and go to bed.

Put out the cat, you better obey!

I mutter and mumble, don't know

What I say.

Please utter a prayer for me today.

You look at me so feeble with age,

You shake your head and don't know

What to say.

Just touch my hand and share your light,

And then I know I'll be all right.

In my mind as I wander away, I long for

Things of yesterday.

'Memory of A Child'


Bring me a child so I can see her face

her eyes so bright and full of grace.

My arms reach out to feel her embrace,

bringing back memories of my daughter so dear,

whom I've out lived for many a year.

My dreams are of her, I can see her face,

the memory of her; age can never erase.

Though I grow feeble and dwindle away,

the light of my life in my heart she will stay.

I see her standing at the foot of my bed,

bathed in a white light shimmering away.

She smiles at me and holds out her hand,

I leave my body engulfed in the light;

such joy I feel I'm in heaven tonight.

I bid you farewell old friends of mine,

I'll see you soon when it is your time.

Such peace I feel, fear death no more.

I'll see you in heaven with no pain,

and hold you in my arms once again.

'Disaster 9-11'

'Disaster 9-11'

Watching the drama unfold of 911 on the dawn of a beautiful day, my heart filled with sorrow.

Tears flowed for the terror that may await us for tomorrow.

Sadness and horror gripped my heart as I watched in horror the start of a heart-breaking scene, knowing in my heart the terror of those who had been passengers and the occupants at the scene.

Firefighters, policemen and unknown hero's, entered willingly to risk their lives to save those so desperate to escape for their lives.

As we watched and prayed to God, our hearts sank for those who were lost.

The Attack on America shattered our belief, that hatred and War were mere thoughts of what happened to those in the War.

Having seen the horrendous acts of terrorism I must ask myself," Am I my brother's keeper, or his foe?"

Deep in your heart the answer you know.

'Dis-Ease of The Body'

Sitting in Church on Sunday morning we had a
guest Speaker talking about Disease.

He devided the word Disease into two syllables,
calling it Dis-Ease.

He described it as when we are ill, it is because
our Souls are at Dis-Ease with God.

I listened to him and my heart began questioning
his sermon.
How can this be if we are sick, yet close to God;
choosing to pray and live life as God tells us too?

Isn't our Soul just making it's home in an Earthly body
to experience life to teach us lessons of love and to
share our light?

When we pass over our Soul leaves it's body behind
to return to dust and our Soul goes back to whence
it came from.

No one is sick just because they are not right with God,
but simply because our bodies are weak.

Our bodies are just made of flesh and our Soul lives on
and on forever.

Why must we bring ourselves down by blaming Disease
on our selves, when believing in God has nothing to do
with it.

When our time is up, God calls us Home to share in all
his Glory, not because we are at Dis-Ease with him.

God loves us as his Children and does not make our
bodies sick just so that we may go Home to him.

When it is our time, we will pass away due to illness
or an accident; and God is waiting for us with his arms
wide open to receive us.

Never blame your self for being ill, these bodies are
sometimes in poor health, yet our Soul is strong.

So please believe in God and, if he isn't ready for
you to return Home then you will become well again.

Love your self for who you are and, take care of your
self knowing that you did not bring on any illness
because you were not right with God.

When the Sermon was over I questioned the Pastor
about his belief and he said, "It is your choice to believe
how you believe and, it is my choice to believe in my
thoughts of God and Dis-Ease.

I didn't change his mind right then, but I bet when he
sleeps on it and, prays about it then he will see things
my way.

The Bible says, "He who believeth in me shall enter into
the Kingdom of God."

If you are sick and depend on God in prayer; you can rest
assured that he will be there to catch you when you fall.

Trust in his Name and his will shall be done.

'A True Friend'

A true friend is one whom you can rely on
when times are hard and you feel like crying.
A true friend will walk through life with you
through laughter, sadness and denial.
A true friend will be truthful without causing
pain, only to be there to help you up once again.
Cherish your friendship for there is a bond that
none can claim.

I know I'm an old woman it's plain to see,

But that's not who I am when you're looking at me.

I am that little girl named Rosalee, with long brown hair dangling down my back.

People said I was quite a brat, but I don't think I was really all that.

I am strong-willed it's plain to see.

I know what you're thinking when you're looking at me.

I used to be pretty so I was told, but you'd never know it now that I'm old.

Though wrinkles march across my face,

Created With Love

Created with Love

Our Creator began by making a beautiful planet and named it Earth.
He saw beauty in the trees, the lakes, the mountains and the valleys.
He added a multitude of animals to inhabit this place called Earth and
saw his creation a piece of work.

He looked into the ocean and saw his reflection and thought he would
make man in his perfection and called him Adam; having done this he
created a woman named Eve, to be a partner to procreate his perfection.

He watched as they grew accustomed to their surroundings giving them
a gift of love which he gently called “choices.”
He made a tree that bare beautiful red fruit but forbade his likeness to
partake of it’s beauty with a warning of knowledge that they would soon
learn to regret.
He gave them a choice not to eat of the tree, or their punishment would
be for all of eternity.
Eve was wandering around and came upon the beautiful tree full of red
fruit; when a serpent dared her to partake of the shiny red apple and just
take a small taste of it.

Being a woman Eve couldn’t resist the beautiful color and the smell in the
beautiful morning Mist.
Breaking off a beautiful red apple from the tree she hid it behind her ;
as her Beloved had been searching for her in their beautiful space and had
come to find her.

She held the shiny red apple up to his face and lovingly bit into it just a
small bite.
Smiling she handed the apple to him, while he backed up knowing it was
wrong to partake of the beautiful fruit Eve was offering him.
Coyly, she smiled and took a bite and put the small piece into his mouth.

Our Creator grew sad because they failed the test of ‘choice,’ having been
warned of the consequences that came with remorse.
He opened their eyes to all they could see and bade them farewell with a
punishment of pain when giving birth to their offspring would become unbearable
for Eve to withstand.

Our Creator watched as they gave birth to two sons. He lovingly watched them as
they grew up quickly, not liking one another.
Later as they grew older one chose to take the life of the other one.
This broke God’s heart to see such hatred from the choice of Adam and Eve partaking
of the apple tree.

Sitting on high, he allowed Earth to grow and prosper as he watched how man
and woman developed in groups of people who would share in the mistake of
the choice of the pair he so lovingly prepared.
As the Earth filled with people our Creator shed a tear, and sent us Angels to
remind us he is near.

His love is never ending, yet he was surprised by his experiment of life and
how his likeness began to make many choices.
Choices of love, greed and gentleness were just a few that he tolerated with trust.

War began and he was sad how little man had learned from his dreams of a
perfect world full of love and light without ever thinking they would fight with
one another.

Now he watches and prays for our sins forgiving us lovingly, knowing the word
‘choices’ was a word that unknowingly would develop into lessons that we
must learn until we return home to the light to be with God the Father.

Rewards will be mighty, yet many will feel the pain that they caused others and
feel it as they are judging themselves as they lived their life.
Loving actions will fill the heart with joy knowing they shared their
light with the world.

Give of yourself freely and experience how love feels as you live
your life, until it is time for you to shed your body and become light and energy
once again when you return to God the Father.

Live For the Moment

Live for the Moment

I would say to you, to take life easy day to day.
If that is too difficult, live for the moment.

That is all that matters what is happening in
this time and space.

All of your worries and fears will be allayed if you will believe
in you.

For today is such a small spectrum of your time; which builds upon all other experiences in your journey through life.

What is important is the love that you give to you; to complete
the circle of unending love given to you from God above.
