“Easter spells out beauty, the rare beauty of new life.”
Happy Easter everybody! For me, it’s a lovely season commemorating the resurrection of Jesus Christ following his greatest sacrifice, his crucifixion. I loved seeing all the communities’ photos of cute bunnies, delicious meals, blooming gardens, adorable children, smiling selfies, decorative eggs, dancing, singing, beautiful spring fashions, hugs, and absolute pure joy flooding my morning!
This past Holy Week has been unlike any other. It’s been a period of reflection, finding the light within as darkness looms. Pope Francis shares, “Creativity of love can overcome isolation”. An outpouring of love from people of all backgrounds has been shared around the world despite social distancing.
Cybersecurity doesn’t take a break. Thankful for my new raise during my 6-month evaluation at work, I decided to give back by donating Doctors Without Borders as my time to volunteer has been limited. Health systems all around the world are taking a battering, and healthcare workers are working tirelessly around the clock. Thank you health heroes. Thank you supermarket employees, food service & utility workers, first responders, delivery drivers, who are also on front lines.
“May we be a people who learn to grieve deeply from within our souls and find comfort in knowing that of one thing I am perfectly sure, God’s story never ends with ashes.” – Elisabeth Elliot
Have a wonderful Easter! Enjoy the precious moments!
A resplendent goddess, becoming in a lovely white dress Feels the cold stone cooling her tired bare feet Radiant and filled with jubilation Anticipation and expectation Bringing hope and blessings Nurtures a special life Flutters in the womb Magical time An ascent Glowing Joy 🙂
My life before simple A linear path filled with a fairly predictable routine Then, one hot summer day… The library presented an irresistible challenge Itching with anticipation! Waited for what seemed like eternity! The mission was to read 20 books! The reward? A yo-yo! The latest spinning craze Allowing gravity to unwind the string Lighting up the world of so many participating children Embarking the reading journey while “walking the dog around the world” 😉
Years later Just when I think the yo-yo has disappeared into the locked vault of yesteryear’s fads My serious concentration questioning employers at a cyber job fair was broken!
Genuinely smiling Filled with overwhelming nostalgia A blue yo-yo! Gleaming against the black tablecloth Idaho National Laboratory “You made my day!” Your motto? The energy of innovation! Indeed! 🙂
Moments within sitting down The ground absorbed her tension brought about from her mental prison Refocusing her energy from the disenchantment of cynicism to the spontaneity of curiosity Gazing out in theendless sea ahead Reaching for a new ideal One that sparks a more joyous life Basking in the healing rays of the sunset Dreaming of the next adventure Relishing the breeze Enriched by tranquil surroundings Delighting in the grains of sand between her fingers that soothes her soul Serenity in abundance Unseen until now Instinctively understanding the momentum of each precious moment in the spectrum of time
A rose’s fragrance fills the air uniting the space between us As the sun sets leaving nothing more to discuss My inamorato’s warm kisses ignites a fire of deep desire Filling my life with joy and making it brighter Illuminating a connection that is passionate and sizzling Sharing with each other all that is interesting As I close my eyes, his fingers dance across my chest To reach my own on an adventurous quest Accompanied by a spicy personality I absolutely adore A banter of witty humor helps my spirit soar Relishing in his tender touch and gentle caresses I appreciate his faithfulness Mi Amor, I feel so well cared for!
