In A Nutshell…

It is said that patience is a virtue and that a patient dog eats the fattest bone. Unfortunately, these days, a patient dog barely finds any bone, not to talk of eating a fat one.

Look at those eyes, dogs

Crossing The Bridge

bridge, crossing, poetry

When crossing the bridge of difficulties

don’t forget your knapsack of determination

wear your best boots of hope

and your favourite pullover of faith

toss on a scarf of good attitude

cinch your belt of positive thoughts

with a compass of patience

you are set to go.

You start with you and end with you.

Tuesday Trickles – My Thinking Corner

picsart_11-08-05-13-451

It takes a lot of patience with yourself to recognize your faults and to own them.

It equally takes twice the humility to resolve that you’ll do better in the future.

Ultimately, it takes patience to master and improve on who you are and whatever it is that you are doing. Anticipating instant success in changes that concerns us only opens up our thoughts and attitude towards impatience and frustration.

May you not tire in running your race.

Think of those things that are currently troubling you and write them down.

Don’t try to focus on immediate solutions; just focus on getting those thoughts out of your mind and onto a paper.

Close your writing, go and do something rejuvenating, like taking a walk, calling a friend and having a bit of laughter, whatever works for you.

Give it a day or two, then pick up what you wrote and read it.

You will observe that writing it down helped to declutter your mind.

Secondly, putting it in writing brings clarity and possibly simplifies the matter and finally reading it gives your mind an opportunity to look at possible solutions from a more mind-liberated position.

Some short words of wisdom are sent in by Deb. Do take a peek. You learn something new every day.

Be happy.

Please bear with me if I’ve been tardy in responding to your comments or even visiting your site. This girl’s life has been on the fast track for several weeks now and with children back in school – the demands grew a bit more.

I’ll do my best to respond to your comments and to come visit asap.

Thank you, remain blessed and eat some cake 😉

Peace Be Still

Just wait it out
with the Lord
for the storm will pass
and after the storm
comes great calm

Below is my first just published Poetry Book “Out of the silent breath” which is available on Amazon and Smashwords.

When you buy my book, you support me in an invaluable manner.

 

Jacqueline writes from her heart on passion, pain, suffering, loss and LIFE. I have been incredibly moved by her poetry and I know I will return to “Out of the Silent Breath” again and again.

Out of the silent breath

If you enjoy my works and would like to do so, you can fuel my creativity with a slice of cake or coffee😉

Tuesdays Trickles….My thinking corner # 21

Every Tuesday, I share snippets of thoughts that I call ‘My Thinking Corner.’

I would like to invite you to participate. The challenge is quite simple.

Each Tuesday, share your very short snippets of positive, inspiring, motivating, health, spiritual, writing advice, clips, posts etc, that can serve as a prop to motivate others and simply add my link to your post.

I call it my thinking corner because, I actually take out a bit of time just to think through things, encapsulate my thoughts as much as possible and detoxify my mind. It helps give me clarity of vision and might help you too.

It might work for you in a different way, but the idea is to get the positive thoughts flowing.

Please send in your little thoughts. You never know whose life you might inspire.

♦ Until you start, you don’t know how far you’ll go.

♦ High expectations from yourself is the secret to achieving great results.

♦ Heed to inner counsel before flying off the hook. React in haste, regret at leisure.

♦ Everyone has the power to excel as long as they don’t give up.

♦ You can look at defeat in the eye, but don’t embrace it.

Today’s thoughts came in from beautiful thinkers:

Today’s nuggets: Wise counsel for those who seek.

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” – Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

Patience The virtues and value of patience can’t be enunciated enough. Are we able to wait through it without complaining?

Positive: Beautiful, positive vibes all the way. At our low moments, the Grace of God always comes through. Annette’s post is uplifting.

Cinderella Blessing How hot are your cinders? I so love the way my friend Noirfifre turned this classic into a beautiful poetic message. Take a look 🙂

I hope that you find these little drops useful now and again. Do check them out and please share snippets of your thoughts with us.

Thanks and blessed be.

Out of the silent breath

Brand me whole as only you can

That the entire score of me

Knows nothing but the fullness of you.

Blogging Like Nature #1…

Blogging can be likened to fishing.

You cast your line with a bait and hope.

Patiently you sit and wait, praying to catch a fry.

I’ll suggest you take some music and a flask of warm drink.

It will make the waiting period pass more pleasurably 🙂

Through His Iris…

1450170180681[1]

Dearly beloved,

We are gathered here…

And the rest of the word floated…

…Over my head

The thrum of blood in my veins slowed down to a sludge,

My heartbeats changing it’s tandem,

So as to echo yours,

A splash of fruity yet full bodied wine into the glinting flutes,

The clinking of cheers at the tips,

We imbibed our first sips,

Now bound together at the hips.

My eyes beheld and clung to yours,

In deep search for the echo of my thoughts.

In there a mirror of myself, I found,

Caught up in the warmth of your iris.

Days have come and gone,

The years have rolled on by,

Yet every time I gaze into those eyes,

They have stayed the same.

With the mirror of me,

Held in the warmth of your iris.
