The Wonderful Winter

The Wonderful Winter

Hail, all you awesome ones!

The temperatures fall.  It’s cold outside.  Time to pull out the woollies, change to thermals and warm, specialized fabrics.  Time to pull out the sleighs, toboggans, skates, skis, snowboards, snowmobiles and snowshoes.  Time for winter!  Time for that specialized season of cold!

The sidewalk is bare from constant shoveling, drifts pile high and the car won’t start.  The giddiness of the festive season is upon us.  Bright lights, holiday cheers, warm welcomes, smiles and gifts.  A fabulous start to the quiet of winter, as we spend our money, plan our holidays and wish each other well, as winter’s nasty colds poke their way in. The headiness of a bustling summer is behind us.  Time to take a break and relax by the fire, bake up a storm and be happy.  Happy to relax, to watch our favourite sport, to sing holiday carols and to play in the fantastic snow!  Our economic wonder, snow!  A blessing that we don’t pay for, brought to you by the great planet.  Enjoy your winter!

We head off to ice caves, ice water falls, frozen rivers and slippery surfaces.  We head off to natural wonder, to awesome delight in the planetary change.  We are tourists in our own town, visiting the sites, bragging about the awesome wonder of the scenery, drinking the local brew and listening to the home grown bands.  We know everyone. Every face is familiar.  Each store has it’s unique specialty and the restaurants offer discounts to us starving hoards, who savor the goodness of every bite.  Laughing and playing, we love this season.  It gives us time to visit.

As wonderful as life is in the carefree summer, winter brings it’s own delight.  For those of us here in this tiny, multicultural town, winter brings us time.  Time to refresh, time to enjoy, time to stay awhile, to visit and to reunite with each other.

The festive season is starting, preparations are being made.  Holiday parties, good friends, family and cheer.  The warmth of the season, when the cold is put at bay.  A change in season is good for us.  It lets us rejoice in a whole new splendor.  Indoor coziness, outdoor frigidness, harmony, balance and avoiding frostbite.  We love this cold winter weather, when the great outdoors turns on the lights early, and we can view the splendor of the stars, planets, even the northern lights in an early, after dinner hour show.

The moon shines a path of white and the glistening snow sparkles and shines our way.  The sun sets early and rises late and the dark is upon us.  We rise in the dark, go home in the dark, and are thankful for the blessings that inventors make.

Hot chocolate and ginger snaps, sweets and treats, this is the time of year to be happy.  A blessing to share, carols to sing, a jingling of jingle bells, rings and rings.

What the Angels Say

What the Angels Say

Hail Bravehearts
To the joy of this season. To the festivities, the parties, the songs and the sharing. To be a community of caring people, to give and to laugh and to work for a community, a country, all of society. To build a nation, to build dreams, hope, freedom and care. Nurture and care, all living things cherished.
The animals, so quiet, so peacefully keeping watch. The angels heralding the birth of a savior. The wisemen travelling so far to discover. The shepherd, so vigilant, as love becomes creation. The songs of most high are the songs of the angels and they sing the song of praises to all. Joy! Love! Peace everlasting! Goodwill to all of you, oh inspired mortal man! Sing with the angels the songs of triumph, the songs of gladness, the songs of joy. Sing with the angels, the spirit of giving, the love of your neighbour, the sharing and the awakening. The divine inspiration of something new.
Be brave, oh mortal human, the new thought, the new lord, the new world, revisited again. Unite, oh human, share common goals, reach for that treasure of wholesome ideas, the unity of thought for a better world, a better life, a better being.
Joy! sing the angels, to their lord most high, on a date of birth to remember.

Silently, silently, the world lies deep in wonder, the lord of lords will fill your lives with love and kindness. Peace, oh weary lives, peace, oh wise ones, the negotiation of this season is peace.
Hear the angels as they sing the praises. The wondrous birth of a savior. They sing the scripture in all of it’s meaning. Listen. It’s what the angels say.
For mortal man with mortal error, envy, boldness, contempt and power, hears a word that was not spoken, sees a deed that did not occur. Crafty plotting, crafty planning, bitter dispute of power and madness. Kill! Kill! and war some more.
Hate! It becomes us and cruelty reigns. But hark! The herald angels sing!
Glory from on high, oh blessed saviour. We hear the angelic voices of heaven most high. The will of the almighty, to cure the demon, to cast out the devil and to unite the faithful. Preach! For this is what the angels say and the scripture is their passion, a play out of a life of persistent devotion.
Hail, oh bravehearts, your duty calls you. Come! Join together, feast and enjoy. This is the season of plenty. Merriment and love, laughter and goodwill. Cast aside your wars, your anger, your doubt and sing together with the praises of creation. This season is about wondrous love, creation and gladness and peace to all of you. A mistake in interpretation is only a folly the season is warm with goodwill and joy.
Hail, all humans, do not despair, the angels know the scripture and sing it well.
Joy to the world.
Peace on Earth.
Goodwill to all of mankind.
Love one another.

To be Strong

Hail Bravehearts

To rise, to shine, to glory. Hear us all the world. Hear us as we shout our praises, shout our joy, our love of creation and the need for peace on Earth. Hear us oh great thinkers, oh great peacekeepers, oh great minds. The unity of the planet is dear to us and the salvation of the great planet Earth is our conquest and our care. There is a time for peace and it is now, now in the quiet of winters sleep, when the Earth breathes deeply and slumbers in rest. Rest also, for the weary need their sleep and the Earth needs peace.
Hail, oh bravehearts, you champions of humanity. The world sees your deeds of greatness and aspirations with awe. So daring, so much courage, so much strength. Oh brave human, whose feats are so amazing, bring us your strength in human caring. The strong, the brilliant, the minds of great people. Cast aside your evils, your devils and step forward. The world needs your mightiness in peace and friendship, in fellowship and goodwill.
Praises, oh great human, for you have built cities, countries, international ties and journeys into space. For what unites us as humans, is great aspirations, great achievement and superb skill. All of us join in the quest to advancement, a quest where competition is not a war.

Each day brings us forward, to hurdle our obstacles, to be champions of necessity, to overcome barriers. The need of the planet for diligence in environmentalism, for sound planning and community safety. The need to end the destruction of the forest, the over hungry and over population. Hail, great human for the listening skills that hear the call to rise above it and to end the misery of poverty and starvation.
Hear us, oh great people, of nations so wealthy, of slavery abolished and friendship so needed. Hear us, oh great land of productive harvests, of properly managed estates, of ending urban sprawl. Hear us as we praise you for the collective thinking that motivates us all and sends us to end the plunder of the planet, the plunder of the oceans and the great, marvelous forests. The forest creatures need their forest and the almighty human needs the air.
Praises! For in this time of winter sleep, of winter fun and winter play, the earth needs it’s quiet slumber and us, oh bravehearts need to plan. A life of conquest of yet another mountain, that trail that calls us, the skills of perfected training. The war on the planet kills all of us.
Our skills are of champions, our quest to conquer it all. The adventurer is a daring human, the skills to out manoeuver the competition, to compete at a level that excites us and to win a victory of unmatched achievement. Again and again, we rise to the challenge, to be the competitor, to be the victor, but oh great human, with lives so enduring, hail to all of you, for lives of great courage. For now, in the quiet of winters sleep, the planet calls your name and hails you. Peace, oh great ones, your wars are killing me.

Hail Bravehearts

Wonderful life, wonderful experiences, wonderful joy. A season of giving is awaiting us, full of joy, compassion for mankind, generosity and caring, wonder and glory, goodwill to all of the world.
Oh cherished hope, of life worth living, of kings and mightiness and power. Oh cherished love of all that’s human, all that’s created, all that’s living. Oh cherished wonder of God most high, of beings invincible, and power unconquerable. Live forever, in the hearts and minds and souls of mortal men, who know the logic and reasonability of peace and love and brotherhood. Live forever, oh dear one, and teach and preach forever.
Peace! The sound resonates and fills our ears.
Love! The emotion of all encompassing acceptance.
Brotherhood! And brothers all are we.
The dead of winter is upon us. The earth has covered it’s landscape for a cold winter’s sleep, the bears den and the rives and lakes freeze. The dead of winter, with renewed life, renewed hope. Joy, for in this time of sleep and slumber, precious new life is born!
Praises! Praises to the world! Praises all yea people! Praises all mankind! For new life, new love and new peace will be born to you and you will be filled with gladness! Praises!
Of kings and kings, glory on high, peace on earth and love to fellow man. Of joy and wonder and hearts filled with gladness, oh season of holiness, last all year long, and bring peace and kindness to all of us, on this great, good planet Earth.
The joy of giving, the joy of saving, the joy of creation. Oh wondrous life, oh happy life, for humanity calls us and we all share. Now, in this time, of quiet and darkness, we live in the dream time of eternal peace.
Oh brave new world, where poverty vanishes, where starvation ends, where loves reigns high. Oh brave new world, where peace and compassion and brotherly love are most dear to us. The joy of giving, the joy of living. Oh great wondrous love, to all of the world, peace. Peace. Oh brothers and sisters, peace.
The immortal souls of wondrous humans, of creativity and giving. A gift of love that lasts forever, an eternity of persuasion to be kind and caring. Nurture and care. For in that quiet moment of connected thinking, the world spins with hope for healing. Heal us, oh great masters, the world needs your focused minds and your great deeds. Heal us, oh great masters, your wisdom and knowledge will surround us and keep us whole.
In this quiet time of winter sleep, we wake to the works of the almighty and dream of glory of peace on Earth, of goodwill and hope and comfort. Heal us, oh great masters, your words and deeds comfort us, for we are all just humans here, with frailties and failings and need. Nurture and care. For all of the world needs kindness and giving, love and peace and compassion for all beings. The Earth astounds us with its beauty and grandure and we are so amazed.
Come, almighty ones, focus your brilliant minds and the souls of our ancestors call to us with wisdom and courage. Rejoice, oh brave humans, for all is not lost, the world gives us answers to the questions we ask and the answers to our questions lie in the quiet of the winters dark sleep, where the celestial calls us to rise to glory, to love and acceptance and to shout the words:
Peace on Earth! Goodwill to all men.

Kindness

Kindness

Hail Bravehearts

To the joy of your being, to the joy of living, to the energy in your body and the brilliance of your minds. Hail to the conquest of the journey of your life, to freedom and prosperity and the joy of close friends, connections and family. The journey of your life begins with birth and takes you through the time travel of your years on the planet. Years of hope, of nurture, of care, of intelligence and rewards, of sorrow and hardship, but still the life in your body and the intelligence in your mind, propels you onwards and forwards towards goals of endearing affection.
For who are we, without love? Love for each other, love for our passions, our home, our family, our friends.
The nurture and care that brings a child to the planet. Care and compassion, love and acceptance, kindness and support. The brilliant wonder of creation, yours to hold, to have and to cherish. Life from life, heart to heart, healing wounds and easing sorrow, joy and happiness and love.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h6VgNzJ04z8&spfreload=10 2013 Kindness Challenge winner – Hannah Brencher, More Love Letters

The gifts that we give to each other, companionship, support and friendship, heal wounds and nurture affection. Peace, brotherhood, brotherly love. A casual gift, smiles and acknowledgement, conversation and acceptance. Casual gifts, small and simple, life supporting and generous. The kindness of reaching out, of touching the heart, of being generous, selfless and worthy. The kindness of being human and humane. Mercy.
Greatness and miracles, good deeds and generosity, the healing of casual acts of kindness, one by one, over and over, again and again, until the soul is saved and the heart can sing once more.
Hail, bravehearts. To the awesome journey of your lives. Be brave. Save and be saved.
