Heather_ 25: RACE of GRACE.... an analogy
Watching the Olympics, 400 meter hurdles.
The woman that won, broke the world record. As I watched I'm thinking what a achievement. Then it came to me. You've run that race You've done it !!! I remembered how it went. There it was the track of Life, Who can tell me how to run it. I can run, I can jump. Turn me loose, Mother Goose. I'm off full speed ahead. So fast the hurdles became automatic there were many. The first one coming out to my parents that I was lesbian . next was my first girlfriend leaving me for a guy. the next was my second girlfriend leaving me for another girl. The last being out of work because of covid. Having no proper prep each hurdle took it's toll. Feeling the wear, What now? Is this the end ? The answer came, as it will if you seek it. NO it is not the end you must finish the race of Life.
Come rise to your feet. I have watched over you from the beginning. Through others I have tried to tell you, but you would not listen. I am here now so you know how to go forward . I hope to see you finish strong.. Listen and trust me and you will. But LORD . I am worn from the rest of the course. Don't worry I will ease your pain. There will be no running, pace yourself. There will be still obstacles you must get past There will be others, some which I have chosen cheering you on and assisting you when needed. If you should fall I will help you up. There will some difficult hurdles to much for you but not for me I will remove them. If it takes a while, This is your time to rest .I will be with you all the way, as long as you need me. With new found confidence I know I shall finish. To think crossing the finish line it's the BIGGEST miracle
of the many I have had in Life. Oh the finale, As a testimonial of GOD'S LOVE and to HIS glory. I shall stand at the Podium of Grace
with the Ribbon of Salvation around my neck. AMEN.
Heather_ 25: CUDDLE CUPCAKES
Not traditional. But as long they're yours
what's in them is alright. Some fabulously friendly flour, Your the ONE oil, Your sooo elegant eggs, A little YOURSELF sugar. A lot of LOVE. Blend them all till well mingled. Nuzzle into an oven. Start low, things will heat up. Leave snuggled there till the LOVE expands and they become warm all over. The aroma of amour will say when they're ready. Rescue them and proudly display. Let them, just like YOU casually cool. Top with magical moment marshmallow. All that's missing is a glass of milk. Prepare your passion you are about to have a delicious experience. ENJOY !
Heather_ 25: IT'S A GOOD THING
Sun popped it's head out from the trees ,
eye level from where I sit. At this time on my front porch I see a little boy blowing bubbles His puppy catching each as it's blown.
With each catch, a heart warming outburst of laughter from the boy. Picture it a sunrise and a child's happiness .As though on cue suddenly background mind music What a wonderful world loud and clear. Good Morning!!!
KarenBigRed: Happy 4th, you most beautiful lady

They did well, they have a most wonderful daughter
Heather_ 25: SEE SAW
An up and down conversation I had with a woman while shopping. I tried to keep things calm as to lift her spirit up. You'll see what I mean. First I am not a clergyperson, therapist, or guru. Just a woman of experience speaking from her heart. I come upon this woman eyeing the hamburger as was I. She looks over and pleasantly says You believe the prices ? Please don't get me started
they're like vampires in this place but worse they use straws so they don't miss a drop. She must have agreed. The conversation continued. Look at the sizes it's hard to shop for one person.
I know what you mean exactly, even harder to cook for one . My freezer gets a lot of use. Are you alone ? she asked. Me too. I sensed a bit of uneasy in her. How long?? she asked as though she was looking for an answer to her situation. It's been a long time I said. You know when I hear a voice I become a chatterbox.. Don't be silly you're fine. I enjoy chatting with you I thought gee another me. Are you in a hurry ? We can talk outside . Really ? I go out and there she is putting stuff in her car. Bye it was nice talking to you. Wait ! wait a minute can I ask you something ? I'm thinking , What's this all about? You said you lived alone for a long time. Yea the last 5 yrs. Not me I'm kind of new at this. Do you like it being alone ?
I don't think she was happy . There's a fine line between serenity
and loneliness. It depends on if it's forced or chosen that your alone. Some people look at being alone as Feeling Really Extra Excited. Some look at it like Always Left Out Non Existent.
Well Bye sorry I talked your ears off. No No I really enjoyed it
Maybe we'll talk again She seemed relieved. As I drove away I couldn't believe I just had that conversation???
I felt it was a positive thing for both of us. I don't even know her name too busy blabbing for introductions. Just as well, not to have her think I was trying to flirt with her. Strictly talk, All I know is she left with a little smile on her face and I felt good inside.
It is amazing, of all places the grocery store could create happiness.
