Leaves of Life

metal leaves

As leaves of life are pages turned

each sunrise and each setting eve,

so Time requires accounting earned

of heart, and what heart has achieved;

what ink was etched in living light

upon those souls within arm’s reach;

what words with honey sweetened plight,

or actions wrote with keener speech?

*

What one thing can you do this day to make the world around you a better place?  We need to stand together against evil, or peace on earth will remain a distant dream…

    Love that image! A snow covered forefront & still some color from nature in the background.

    What to do? Today we will find out which two kids we are adopting for this holiday season. So exciting!

      I so need these life lessons myself – I am far from actually accomplishing what I ‘preach’! 😦 But I am becoming slowly more aware, and little by little, can put some of my lessons into practice…
