It is new to me too, I love Robert Frost and thought I had read all his poetry so this was a pleasant surprise.

A Prayer for Australia this morning.


“Our hearts cry out to you for those who have lost loved ones,
and those who have lost properties in the wake of these ravaging fires.

Father we pray, in your mercy, restrain the forces of nature from creating catastrophic damage;
in your mercy protect human life.”

“Guard those volunteers, rural fire service personnel and
emergency services who selflessly step into the breach to
fight these fires. Guide police and authorities who help evacuate
and shelter those who are displaced.

Bring comfort and healing to all who suffer loss.”

From my treasures...



Little Boy kneels at the foot of the bed,
Droops on the little hands little gold head.
Hush! Hush! Whisper who dares!
Christopher Robin is saying his prayers.

God bless Mummy. I know that's right.
Wasn't it fun in the bath tonight?
The cold's so cold, and the hot's so hot.
Oh! God bless Daddy - I quite forgot.

If I open my fingers a little bit more,
I can see Nanny's dressing gown on the door.
It's a beautiful blue, but it hasn't a hood.
Oh! God bless Nanny and make her good.

Mine has a hood and if I lie in bed,
And put the hood right over my head,
And I shut my eyes, and I curl up small,
And nobody knows that I'm there at all.

Oh! Thank you God, for a lovely day.
And what was the other I had to say?
I said "Bless Daddy," so what can it be?
Oh! Now I remember. God bless Me.

Little boy kneels at the foot of the bed,
Droops on the little hands little gold head,
Hush! Hush! Whisper who dares!
Christopher Robin is saying his prayers.

That brought back memories, Ann.

Daisy - I've started saying 'thank you' more often, rather than just asking for things.

There is no way to happiness,
happiness is the way.

You should be happy right in the here and now.
There is no way to enlightenment.
Enlightenment should be right here and right now.
The moment when you come back to yourself, mind and body together,
fully present, fully alive, that is already enlightenment.
You are no longer a sleepwalker.
You are no longer in a dream.
You are fully alive.
You are awake.
Enlightenment is there.

And if you continue each moment like that,
enlightenment becomes deeper.
More powerful.

There is no way to enlightenment,
enlightenment is the way.

From my treasures, I really love this one...

If Only We Believe

To believe is to know that every day
is a new beginning.
It is to trust that miracles happen,
and dreams really do come true.
To believe is to see angels
dancing among the clouds
To know the wonder of a stardust sky
and the wisdom of the man in the moon.

To believe is to know the value of a nurturing heart,
The innocence of a child's eyes
and the beauty of an aging hand,
for it is through their teachings we learn to love.
To believe is to find the strength
and courage that lies within us.
When it is time to pick up
the pieces and begin again.

To believe is to know we are not alone,
That life is a gift and this is our time to cherish it.
To believe is to know
that wonderful surprises
are just waiting to happen,
And all our hopes and dreams are within reach.
"If only we believe"!

~Unknown~

Yes, when it is time to begin again, not if. At almost 60 years old, I've finally begun to understand that coming to the end of a particular path doesn't mean you chose the wrong road; it's just the way life is.
