Iggy the Bold Bunny..and Babies

By melanie jean juneau, published on Sep 26, 2013

...Iggy was there in a flash, standing up to get a better view of the veggies.

If one of my children tried to sleep in, Iggy would hop on the bed, jumping right beside their head, until they woke up!

Iggy was definitely not a cowering rabbit.

I think that Iggy benefited psychologically from our kid filled home. Perhaps this intelligent rabbit sensed our love and delight in who she was, setting her free to become even more animated and fearless.

If a loved bunny is able to defy typical expectations, how much more might a baby take flight on the wings of love?

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

The Search for Freedom

By Ely North, published on Jun 16, 2013

“I know but one freedom, and that is the freedom of the mind.” ~Antoine de Saint-Exupery

I used to be thoroughly pissed off a good proportion of the time. I was supposed to be living in “the land of the free,” but everywhere I looked I saw infringements on my freedom. Most of my anger was directed at the Government, that nameless, faceless, nebulous menace which I saw as responsible for most of these infringements. The Government passes laws requiring me to do certain things (e.g. pay taxes, wear a seat belt) and not to do other things (e.g. punch nuns, murder morons). All... (more)

Freely Received and Freely Passed On

By melanie jean juneau, published on May 15, 2013

... thought in mind I introduce the innovative Fantabulous and Awesome Blossom Awards, straight from my heart to yours. Bally Bin, author of The Good, Bad and Ludicrous, created these badges a couple of days ago.

I mounted these memes on the side column of my blogs with pride and with joy. Bally Bin and I extend the invitation for you to do the same. You are also free to give these no-strings attached Awards to others as you see fit. These images are free to use as long as you and others don’t pretend they are your own. Simply put a link back to The Good, Bad and Ludicrous.

Give Me Purple Everyday!!!

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Feb 3, 2013

Give me purple everyday

Make me smile as I play

Let's run here

Let's run there

Forgive me dear if

You think I'm square...

See that puddle on the ground

I refuse to walk around

Jumping in with hands held high

Taking a trip up to the sky

Smiling as I feel so free

Next I want to climb that tree...

Once a man

Twice a child

Now I will be just that

Even if you call me brat

It's okay if you stare

Kindly keep me in your prayers...

My Ceiling Is My Children's Floor

By melanie jean juneau, published on Nov 24, 2012

...another sibling making a committed choice in their lives.

They will dance in a circle, facing each other, laughing and enjoying each other as well as other people young and old who will get caught up in my kids' exuberance.

To their father and I, my adult children radiate freedom and joy. Thank God that our ceiling is our children's floor. I could weep with relief because they are not starting their lives back at the same point as we did.

Each time my husband and I bear witness to another child taking a committed plunge into their adult lives we are surprised... (more)

Storms

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Jul 19, 2012

Standing firmly on

the jagged edge of

stained boulder ...Contemplating the

eye of the storm

churn the mouth of oceanic neptunium

in front of me...I am like that

rain drenched

humming-bird...

Dauntlessly

rising to touch the stars

I will not wait

for rainbows...

I will love the rain...

" A poet is someone who stands outside in the rain hoping to be struck by lightning."

Giving it away for free. Why?

By Shane Joseph, published on May 11, 2012

I am inundated by new writers offering me free e-content these days. “Download my book for free!” And this has led me to realize why the traditional world of publishing, that is, those who try to make a living out of this business, have circled the wagons on their industry.

It is almost a given these days that a new writer has to self-publish his book and give away the e-book version for free. Some say that you have to give away three free for every one sold at $0.99. That is less than 25 cents per copy. How long will that take before you amass the minimum required to receive your first... (more)

Real Is Beautiful

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Apr 9, 2012

Being tender, open and "real" is beautiful...I do question why many people are unable to live with this part of their soul...instead living to be what others expect them to be... It is our most sacred gift from God. When your heart and soul are open, you leave your ego behind. It no longer matters what insignificant "should be, should not be, probably was, probably wasn't" ...is entering into your thoughts. If we are aware, we will always redirect our thoughts and heart to a higher place...And yes, I pray everyday to be able to live my life in this way...Sometimes I am successful... (more)

It takes my breath away!

By Betty B., published on Dec 17, 2011

The way you move when I pray, It just takes my breath away.

Little prayers sent up to your throne, no more for them to roam, brings relief when whispered in my ear, It takes my breath away.

Your arms around me is all I need, I realize when I see, that your embrace just takes my breath away.

Nobody can show their love the way you do, It just takes my breath away.

When I think your far and I wait to hear Your voice, You reply in such away, that it takes my breath away.

So long I wait, but when I'm still, You come and take my breath away.

Your Majesty... (more)
