LOVE IS IN THE AIR…..

Everywhere you go you can see signs that Valentine’s Day is tomorrow 2/14/2017. Today I began thinking about my favorite love songs and this one definitely popped in my mind. It is called “Unbreak My Heart” by Toni Braxton. As a matter of fact in my opinion this is the best song that she made. It is very laid back and has a real nice vibe.

WEDNESDAY’S WORDUP…

This one’s deep. Real deep. The video was posted initially in 2015 but… I didn’t see it until 2 days ago. I usually am moved by songs/videos, AND…things that are extremely poignant. This is definitely on that level. I’m not going to tell you what you’re going to see before you see it but trust me, you’ll like what you see. On a scale of 1-10 where ten is superior… THIS ONE’S THE BEST!!!

HAPPINESS… IS SO ELEMENTARY

Thanks Ann for sending this video that took me all the way back to kindergarten.  I haven’t heard this in years and when I did, I found myself singing along.  If you can’t appreciate this one, you may need to check your happiness meter.  Everyone deserves to be happy and more often than not, happiness begins with you.  As Charles Spurgeon puts it,  “It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness”.  Have a HAPPY MONDAY!!!

 

SLEEP ON…

Sleep On

So many times you’re thought about

So many times we mourn

Our hearts are still yet bleeding

Because they certainly have been torn

The time we had to see your face

Has come and gone exceptionally fast

And yet this love you’ve let us with

For a lifetime… It will last

This heart of gold is now laid to rest

Our memories we hold remarkably near

And though we reverently yield to God’s plan

We still…wish that you were here

Goodbyes are often difficult to declare

Their pain runs ever so deep

And so we’ll never bid you adieu

We’ll just see you…as sound asleep

Today is another day that I found out that someone that I know has died.  That now makes about six people in the last six or seven months.  Although death is inevitable, it is certainly surprising at times and overwhelming as well.  Right now I’m burning a candle for all of those families who are grieving their loved-ones.  I’m  also wishing eternal peace for the deceased.  Above is a poem that I wrote some time ago and I hope it speaks to the heart of those who are trying to cope with their loss.

 

 

BLOGGER RECOGNITION AWARD

 

 

It gives me great pleasure to pass on some of the love that I have been given…

Blogger recognition award

The Rules:

  1. Write a post to show your award.
  2. Give a brief story of how your blog started.
  3. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
  4. Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  5. Select 15 other blogs you want to give the award to.

I want to first thank David at https://chapeblog.wordpress.com for honoring studiotj with this award.  As I have mentioned before, his blog is centered on personal fitness and we all need to visit his site frequently…(I’m at least speaking for myself on that one).  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Studiotj got started as a way for me to put a positive spin on some of the topics that interests me.  I wanted to post various things and not always focus on the most negative aspect of everything.  Enough about me.  My advise to others who want to start a blog is to: 1.) Just get started and 2.) REMEMBER:  WORDS ARE POWERFUL!  3.)  Use that power wisely!  There are so many people that I want to give this to but these are the ones that come to mind.  MUCH LOVE!!!

And the nominees are:

LOVE ISN’T LOVE…

…”til you give it away!  I’ve always loved this quote and am posting it to remind others to give away some love to someone as soon as you can.  It can be as simple as a phone call, an email, a smile, a kind word, or some other simple kind gesture.  in my case, I will soon be giving away some love to a few of my wordpress friends.  Just yesterday, studiotj received another award and this one was from Chape Personal Trainer and is called the Blogger Recognition Award.  https://chapeblog.wordpress.com/2016/03/25/recognition-awards/

Chape’s blog is a great site that is always giving great tips on ways to workout.  Don’t we all need that?  I can speak for myself and say YES!!!

  I am ever so grateful for this and will be soon selecting some others to share the love.  If you’re reading this Xena, DaintyM, Virgobeauty, cjstorm, mopane, and others…LOVE………..is in the air!!!
