When Not Prescribed

.

“I believe in kindness.

Also in mischief.

Also in singing,

especially when singing

is not necessarily

prescribed.”

.

~ Mary Oliver

.

Who doesn’t have the imp in them that doesn’t

want to pull a harmless prank from time to time.

God bless those who can sing, those whose voice can

bring happiness into the heart of the listener,

even when it may not be at the prescribed time.

Today, at any time, sing a song that will

lift the spirits and make others happy.

Happiness is singing when singing is not necessarily prescribed.

Happiness is helping someone help themselves.

One’s Freedom

.

“To know how

to free oneself

is nothing:

the arduous thing is

to know what to do

with one’s freedom.”

.

~ Andre Gide

.

Happy, joyous and free; now what ? ? ?

The freedom to do nothing

will eventually lead to the starvation

of body, mind and soul.

Today, use your freedom to choose wisely

and the best choice is to fulfill the obligations

life has requested  of you.

Today, choose to do the will of a loving Higher Power,

and be the responsible soul that provides for

family and community.

Life is knowing what to do with one’s freedom.

Life is living and loving in the here and now.
