I have no problem with Shakespearean English, so long as it is enunciated clearly. In fact, I rather enjoy it.

That's probably because you have more brain-power than 9/10 of the population of the Earth..

Lean on me, let our hearts beat in time,
Feel strength from the hands that have held you so long.
Who cares where we go on this rugged old road
In a world that may say that we're wrong.

...Cause I know - A love that will never grow old.

A Meditation (Author Unknown)

You are mine, and I love you.
Before you could even think or breathe,
I knew you and I love you.
You mean that much to me
That I know you and call you by your name.
If you remember only one thing, let it be this:
I will never forget you.
I will never abandon you
Because you are mine, and I love you.
I am always faithful, even when you are unfaithful
And when you are unfaithful,
I forgive you — again, and again, and again.

I accept you as you are right now.
I accept you, not despite, but with your past.
But I also want you to be more.
It makes me sad when you're not your real self-
When you choose to compromise, or be phoney, or play games
or be a pleaser.

So I challenge you to accept yourself —
Your real self with all its Strength and weakness,
With all its holiness and sinfulness,
With all its joy and sadness.
Accept it all as I accept you.
But strive to be your best self,
Your real self,
Your free self.

And if you find yourself hating your brother, pause and ask,
"Why do I hate myself?"
And if you find yourself being intolerant of those around you,
Pause and try to be a little more tolerant of yourself.
And if you find it hard to forgive those around you,
Why can't you forgive yourself?

Please realize that struggle and pain
Are the only real avenues to growth.
Be patient and hopeful in your struggle
And try to understand the struggle of your brother.

That good Samaritan, you know? That's you.
That story my Son, Jesus, told you
Means that you have to get outside of yourself
And respond to the needs of others.
And you have to care enough about yourself
So that you can really care for others.

You know, there'll be times when
Everything seems to be crumbling down before you.
At those times, remember this:
Is there someone in your life who really loves you?
I love you more!

Is there someone who really listens to you?
I live in your heart!
Is there someone who really understands you?
I understand better than you understand yourself!

So don't ever give up.
Rather, give in!
Give in to me!
I promise I will do so much for you.
Please, please, let me in.
Let me love.
Let me set you free.

Engineer my circumstances, O Lord, according to Your Will
Lean on me, let our hearts beat in time,
Feel strength from the hands that have held you so long.
Who cares where we go on this rugged old road
In a world that may say that we're wrong.

...Cause I know - A love that will never grow old.

Hey Brother Patrick, I was thinking it had been a year since your near death experence. I should go for another hike to mark the ocassion. How is Polly by the way?

Thank kew for sharing your experences with us, I say your prayer from time to time, saying the words helps me accept the reality of situations.

Hope your health is good and you get to spend lots of time out doors.

I'm doing all sorts of celebrating this week!  On June 23, while in prayer, I was told a SECRET which will be shared with you all once it happens.   Polly is really busy but we keep in touch with email.  How nice of you to ask!  I DO get outside, often to walk down to the beach and photograph sunrises.

Some Basic Truths:

Seen it.  Done it.  Can't remember most of it.

Everyone has a photographic memory.  Some don't have film.

Save the whales.  Collect a whole set.

A day without sunshine is ..like....night.

On the other hand, you have different fingers.

Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.

I just got lost in thought.  It was unfamiliar territory.

Sometimes I feel like I'm diagonally parked in a parallel universe.

He's not dead; he's electroencephalographically challenged.

She's always late.  Her ancestors arrived on the Juneflower.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say will be misquoted, then used against you.

I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be without sponges.

Honk if you love peace & quiet.

Despite the cost of living, have you noticed how it remains so popular?

Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

Atheism is a non-profit organization.

Sign in an office:
"This job is only a test
had it been an actual job,
you would have received
raises, bonuses and promotions."

Looking for a helping hand? There's one on your arm.
