So there you have it friends, yet one more of those beautiful examples penned by our friend 'Author Unknown' that circulates the inboxes. I did a google search this morning trying to find this poem some place out there with an actual name, but came up empty handed.
When I first read this poem it felt as if it was written with me in mind, because it speaks so clearly of the way I have felt most of my life. Here I am 59 years old and I still feel as if there is something more that I need to do. My belief has always been that we are all put on this earth with a purpose to fulfill. It is just a matter of sitting quietly for a while and listening to the world around you. When it is your turn to contribute, you will just know. I have also long believed that when we have fulfilled our worldly purpose then we are permitted to move on to a higher plain. I have a feeling that the beauty that we are given a taste of in this world can not compare to what lays in store. So take some time, sit, listen and be generous with the gifts you have been given to share with others.
Please hold those that are in the path of Gustav in your prayers. We have family and friends in the Lake Charles, Louisiana area and are anxiously watching the news reports his morning. May your week be filled with blessings.
