time goes so quickly

love fiercely laugh frequently

make your moments count

 

 

Bless you for stopping by today, I always appreciate your visits.  I have decided to take a  summer break from blogging as my oldest daughter will be leaving for college in 6 weeks and I want to spend a lot more time away from my computer.  Time flies………don’t let it pass you by.

See you in September……..

 

Calling authors who live with a chronic illness!

One of my 2020 goals for simplychornicallyill is to review 6 books from WordPress bloggers who live with a chronic illness (or three).   Currently, I have two publications on my to-review list,  but I am searching for three more books to read this year.  My first review of 2020 was The Shadow Boxers by Kim Johnson & Karen Anderson and you can find my thoughts here.

So, if you are a chronically ill  and have published a book, or know of a WP blogger who is chronically ill, please send them a link to this post.  All I need is the title of your book and I will purchase it with my own funds, give you a review on this blog, and hopefully help bring more attention to your work.

Thank you in advance for the chance to assist another chronically ill author.

when the world seems stacked against you

and the wind is refusing to be at your back

 

lights appear to dim as you walk into a room

flowers wilt and die before your tired eyes

and those who are suppose to love you never seemed to care

 

these moments in life can overtake us

creating a sense of feeling unworthy, useless, spent

 

but you are so very beautiful and you are loved,

if not by those who fail to see your inherent worth,

 

remember you are cherished by the one who created you

and the beauty of life will reveal itself to you as

 

a new day will dawn

the fog will clear

and clouds will part

the rain will halt

the sun will shine

birds will sing

and flowers will bloom

Through the sounds of the seasons

Allowing us to hear His mighty roar through a storm

His gentle touch from the falling rain

His whispers through the wind

His guidance through the moon

His infinity through the heavens

See His beauty in the autumn landscape

His attention to detail within a butterfly

His peace through the face of a sleeping child

 

And His genius in creating the fascinating, stunning, genuinely original, and lovable YOU ~

 

sounds of the season

the rustling of leaves holding tightly to their branches

the crunching sounds of fallen leaves under your feet

the whirling of the leaves dancing in the wind

and geese honking their good-byes overhead

the lonely cry of an owl

the cool rains that fall down from heaven

 

the music of this magical season…………..

pitch darkness is a space where you are forced to discover what you are truly made of and how you were created

veils fall off those who surround you, and their souls reveil as they truly are

terror strikes in isolating darkness,  not knowing what or who is around the next corner,  taking each step with a movement of faith, yet questioning where your faith lies

only in true darkness can you see flickers of light, from yourself, or from others in your life

allow that flickering of light, no matter how weak, illuminate your path

you were not meant for the dark, yet only by trudging through the darkness can you truly appreciate the light.
