These are the things I hold divine:

A trusting child's hand laid in mine,

Rich brown earth and wind-tossed trees,

The taste of grapes and the drone of bees,

A rhythmic gallop, long June days,

A rose-hedged lane and lovers' lays,

The welcome smile on neighbors' faces,

Cool, wide hills and open places,

Breeze-blown fields of silver rye,

The wild, sweet note of the plover's cry,

Fresh spring showers and scent of box,

The soft, pale tint of the garden phlox,

Lilacs blooming, a drowsy noon,

A flight of geese and an autumn moon,

Rolling meadows and storm-washed heights,

A fountain murmur on summer nights,

A dappled fawn in the forest hush,

Simple words and the song of a thrush,

Rose-red dawns and a mate to share

With comrade soul my gypsy fare,

A waiting fire when the twilight ends,

A gallant heart and the voice of friends.

- Jean Brooks Burt

Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. 

See, I am doing a new thing!  Now it springs up;

do you not perceive it?  I am making a way in the

wilderness and streams in the wasteland. 

Isaiah 43:18-19

Live for today, love for tomorrow, and laugh

at all your yesterdays. Never ever regret

anything in the past, always keep hope in your

heart until your time to close your life's

book. Cherish every moment you have.

You took the time, thank you!

Be safe today and enjoy.

And now till another time, be safe in

all you do. Be aware of everything and

everyone around you at all times. A

very good habit .... take care!
