THE BEVERAGE OF LIFE
THE BEVERAGE OF LIFE

Drink it in, taste it, savor the beverage of life... 
 It is a wine that quenches the everyday... 
  
 Do not dilute it with worry, sour it with unhappiness, 
 or poison it with depression. 
  
 The fiery color of an Autumn in full bloom, 
 The look of a freshly mown lawn in summer, 
 Or a soft, and silent snowfall, and peace of the stars, 
 on a cold winters night. 
 Like  holes in the floor of  Heaven. 
  
 Listen to the wind, 
 And the music that it plays, as it grasps, 
 at the strings of nature, 
 The drums of thunder, and the pure energy of lightning, 
 that cause the flowers of spring to reveal their faces. 
  
 Have patience, sip the intoxicating liquor of life, 
 The roses are in no hurry, in the darkest of Decembers, 
 for they know the sun will shine soon enough, 
 so they wait to show they're beauty, 
 to open when the time arrives. 
  
 Show the beauty in your life, 
 in the pleasure of helping another,from loneliness, 
 anguish, or sorrow. 
 Share your glass, and find that it remains full. 
  
 Be generous with the gift, 
 drink it with your loved ones, friends, 
 and all who come in contact with your joy, 
 will be replenished with the love of life. 
  
 Allow yourself , 
 to be as the break of a new dawn, 
 come slowly, silently, and see the glow of the days ahead, 
 Look not back into the darkness. 
  
 And the light of God will shine, 
 on the faces of the people you touch, 
 Drink it in, taste it, 
  
 Savor the beverage of life.......

..."and the light of God will shine on the faces of the people you touch"...each line was an inspiration and a joy to read...so solidly fixed on the positive!  this is one I wish I had written...one that will become a favorite of mine.

If only people would listen and see.....


Listen to the wind, 
 And the music that it plays, as it grasps, 
 at the strings of nature, 
 The drums of thunder, and the pure energy of lightning, 
 that cause the flowers of spring to reveal their faces.
