Seasons Of Life

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Jul 19, 2013

Searching, seeking, wondering, looking, curious, acute observation....After so many years , at last I do accept who I am. The journey has been incredible, piercing my heart and soul at times. Throwing me into the pits of Hell on earth , wanting me to learn wisdom inside this evil. I have strove to grow with each tear. Sometimes with success, other times simply buried in unknowing. I have danced in the purest joy in abundance. Surrendered myself to living through eternal loving grace. When I thought all was lost, I found a new destiny to lift me. Opening my heart, I move on. Once again... (more)

A Prayer For All The Innocent Suffering

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Jul 8, 2013

Do you see them?

Are your eyes truly open?

Or do you pretend

Walking blindly among

What hurts your heart

To look at....?

I have never been able to close my eyes to those in need. I pray I never do. Yes, at times I have cursed and wondered the purpose of being blessed with seeing what is not on the surface. That somehow, my vision needs to go deeper. Why do I read such pain in eyes I do not know? What am I being directed to see?

Years ago, I realized that through my own pains and traumas, I was given a gift. The gift... (more)

Still I Hold On To Hope....

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Jul 1, 2013

I am a dreamer of bountiful dreams

Many never coming to fruition

I've watched them silently flying

Into the vast unknown chasm ***

Still I have dreams I realized and they bless me

So I dream on...

I am a prayer of endless prayers

Quietly I wait looking for this

Sweet redemption to bless my heart

They go unanswered***

Still many prayers were heard and justified

So I pray on...

Often I have trusted a friend

To be betrayed and left weeping

A betrayal to my heart

Scarred... (more)

Looking Within...

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Jun 28, 2013

Within this serenity Listening to the echosOf many choices and voicesSpeaking to my essence ***The rhythm of life drummingLoudly singing it's refrainPainting a masterpieceBreathed into existence***Bathed in purity of heartA holy chalice of graceShining it's magnificent Abundance of harmony***Floating to a quiet nestJust me and the moonAnd the blue sky of hopeListening to the voice of truth***In this place I hear God whisperReminding me to breatheTo fold on firmlyKnowing everything will be okay*** Copyright © 2012 Barbara MacDonald

Trouble Comes To Pass, Not To Stay

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Jun 24, 2013

Today a lady came into my life in a new way which I was not at all expecting. I had organized a class in my building to help some of the people dealing with chronic illness. It is through a program called the Wellness Program which I am helping implement . Two wonderful women are presenting this. Today while going through an exercise the one lady broke down in tears and excused herself and went outside for a few minutes. She came back after and apologized and said she is going through some personal things right now. The class continued on, and again she had started crying and left to go sit... (more)

The Awakening

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Jun 15, 2013

Years ago I found this and it had such wisdom that I made it a point to share this with every new client I had from that point onward....

The AwakeningSonny Carroll

There comes a time in your life when you finally get it ... When in the midst of all your fears and insanity you stop dead in your tracks and somewhere the voice inside your head cries out "ENOUGH! Enough fighting and crying or struggling to hold on." And, like a child quieting down after a blind tantrum, your sobs begin to subside, you shudder once or twice, you blink back your tears and through a mantle... (more)

Before It'sToo Late

By Barbara MacDonald , published on May 31, 2013

There are times when you want to get away

Running away from the beeping of your mind

You foster the pain in your heart

Letting it nourish the raw wound of betrayal ***

This world needs a giant sweep

Clearing away all the dust

Of hate and ignorance

Washing clean this intolerance***

Lifting a hand to hurt a fellow being

Inscrutable disregarded darkness

Oblivion to values of the soul

Creating incomprehensible anguish... (more)

From Storms To Sunlight

By Barbara MacDonald , published on May 24, 2013

Storms tempestuous raging the lakes cresting with exertion of life*** After the storm the sun broke through warming my soul beckoning me with hope the river banks serene majestic harmony Quiescent serenity*** Storms will come Tears cascade with endlessness insinuated lament seemingly eternal whimpers of longing*** For the avidity of the sun the caress of purity and innocence lost turning our tears to mist*** Rising within to be no more...to erase forever with rebirth Of faith and hope rejuvenated strength grace undeserved*** Dancing and sparkling in our hearts... breaking forth... (more)

Painted Picture

By Barbara MacDonald , published on May 7, 2013

Today I paint a picture Longings on a canvas My lips leaving their colors My hands their caress... Woven on this masterpiece The warmth of your sweet skin Only just beginning Never wanting it to end... With each stroke sweet emotion Leaving us wanting more Tell me what is hidden Behind this open door... Exploring sweet surrender Lost in this embrace The portrait of fascination Written on our face... Our hearts fill with desire I see it in your eyes Motivating us both higher Who knew we could fly... A portrait painted freely Each movement meant to be Etched into a snapshot Everlasting... (more)

Wandering...

By Barbara MacDonald , published on May 1, 2013

Wandering in the miasma of fog

My conscience scanning

Inquisitive brilliance shining ...

What have I lost?

What is my soul crying for?

To no avail I hunger for the answers...

This universe of humans

Heavy on my mind

Neither a match for my soul...

I see the door within my sight

It does not open with the key I have

Until the time is in perfect harmony...
