“My passions were all gathered together like fingers that made a fist. Drive is considered aggression today; I knew it then as purpose.”

The Little Things
- by Cynthia

Realizing the things, that mean so much. Like a thought that puts a smile, on your face, or a simple loving touch.
The smell of fragrant flowers,
on a breezy Spring day.
The kind words of encouragement,
that are spoken your way.
The sweet sounds of children laughing,
as they play down the hall.
The feeling of accomplishment,
no matter how big or small.. The thought of loved ones, who have come and gone. Their pictures and the memories, that will forever live on. If we could take time out and focus less, on our financial state. We would realize it's the little things, that really make life so great.... 
My heart in deepest praise does rise
To soar in joy through bright blue skies.
My arms in humble thanks are raised
In gentle, loving, longing praise.
Without You, Lord, the day would be
Restricting, chaining, clogging me.
But Your release, Your power, Your grace
Make everything fall into place.
Your wisdom is so strong and true;
No need to wonder what to do.
One look into Your smiling face,
And I find strength to run the race....
