Row Your Boat

Row Your Boat

Row, row your boat gently down the stream..
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily.. life is but a dream –Nursery Rhyme-

I love this song, I have used it so many times to connect or remind myself of how life can be. The song says to row your boat…row “your” boat not someone else’s. If you are going on your boat and you have a paddle on the left and a paddle on the right and try to paddle someone else’s boat at the same time, you will go around in circles.

When we start to row someone else’s boat we lose momentum in our own. We also need to tell people not to row our boat. You can say now row your own boat and stay out of mine.

Gently down the stream tells us to go with the flow of life. Life always meets us halfway. Go with it! Go with the stream, the flow of traffic…the way things are…goes with it and you will be so happy where it eventually takes you.

Merrily, Merrily… Life is too short not to be happy…and if you are so happy, don’t forget to tell your face to (smile). As children we had so many different faces: the awe look, the joy look, the amazed look, the sad look, the funny look. As adults we have to be careful to not get the one serious look with a tight face and no joy written on it.

Put humor in your lives everyday..a joke, a story, a smile at the traffic light.. there is always time.

Life is but a dream.. Did you ever lie down for an afternoon nap and wake up and it was “dark thirty”? There you are and you don’t know if it is the same day or the next day or where you are supposed to be. Well life is like that at time.. you wake up and you are 30.. then what happened to them.. and now the 40’s, etc..

Life is but a dream enjoy the journey!

It is in our nature to find our way

It is in our nature to find our way

It is in the nature of a way to reveal itself. A way does not wish to hide or be undiscovered. Until it is discovered, its purpose for existing is not realized. If you do not see it clearly, ask it to show itself to you. Do not be afraid to call out, “Brother Way!…

Struggle is Necessary

A man found a cocoon of an emperor moth. He took it home so that he could watch the moth come out of the cocoon. On the day a small opening appeared, he sat and watched the moth for several hours as the moth struggled to force the body through that little hole. The moth…

Prosperity

Prosperity

I believe that prosperity is your birthright, as a child of God. I believe that I it is your divine inheritance, bequeathed to you by divine right.

An intentional family is formed when a group of people choose to re-create a family, whether official or not, by choosing people to surround themselves with in familial support of each other.
