I have thought all day about what Jesus went through on this day 2,000 years ago, and it always brings me to thoughts of how I can try harder to be a better person.

He suffered so much..And I am going to try my hardest to think of others and not myself this year. I read a post that said if you are lonely reach out to others who are lonely. Good advice.

Sometimes I get trapped into wrong thinking when I just think of how lonely I am. Because there are so many lonely people who need to be loved and appreciated. And that is what God would want. For us to reach out to others. I send hope to everyone who needs it today.

Please never give up on yourself because God does have a plan for your life.

Observation from My Car..

( photo i took a few days ago titled: Winter's Remains)
I observed this from my car a few days ago..
They walked arm in arm across the parking lot supporting one another.
And I'm sure that through their long life together they had done the same thing.
Supported each other through the good times and the bad times.
Through trials they must have went through. I hadn't seen their trials, but knew that surely they had went through some. We all do..
They were barely able to walk. He had a cane and she held onto his arm as he led her to the car and helped her in. My heart went out to the them because old age is not often kind to the body nor to the mind.
She asked him if he had locked the door three times across the small parking lot. And he very patiently answered yes he had. And smiled so kindly at her.
She said, "I love you."
He said, "I love you too."

I threw some Sunflower seeds in my neighbors back yard
and they grew and grew and grew

They grew so much that they covered up the graffiti on their garage and covered up their trash

Well it made the neighbors mad that they couldn't see their crap

So they went and got an axe and cut the Sunflowers down
but some seeds fell out of the heads and the Sunflowers grew and grew and grew

And the neighbors tried to cut the Sunflowers down again but the axe refused and the neighbors tried to burn the axe and the fire wouldn't burn

And the Sunflowers grew and grew and grew until they covered up all that was bad and all that made people sad..

And the neighbors moved away. Ha!

The Monster in the Lake

Deep under the water was a silo where a monster lived.

He quietly swam out in Summer and ate tourists and locals on the lake. Not all of them, just enough.

And then he hibernated all Fall, Winter, and Spring...
Floating in his watery abode..

I sat by her grave today and threw bread crumbs out for the birds.

Her name was Gertrude and she was born on January 7, 1904 died February 19, 1916. Just a child..

I bring her flowers on holidays and on her birthday. I'm sure that all who loved her are gone.

I wonder silently to myself every time I am there, "How did she die? Does it have anything to do with the baby's grave next to hers? " Or is that a coincidence?

Even though we have never meet in life, I feel a connection to her.

Maybe it's because we are both alone.

I love beauty, whether it is in nature, literature or art. And I love music... My day feels incomplete if I haven't had a chance to listen to some good music.. I also love beautiful souls, and kind hearts.
