Beauty is to look to

the reflection in the mirror

if one is wise

can be the reflection of the eyes

looking back to say

your lovely,

too many people

look to others and say…

I’m not good enough for him

I’m not good enough for her

what could they see in me?

Discover the worth in you

others will then see it too.

seems very tasty

Changing My Destiny


…now on to the good stuff…


CrockPot Apple Butter

I adapted this easy recipe from Cake Student because I had everything on hand and it worked out beautifully. I used a little more water than the recipe called for, and I did add slightly more brown sugar and spices. By slightly more, I mean rounded teaspoons instead of being specific with my measurements. I mean can a few extra pinches of brown sugar really hurt?

Crock Pot Apple Butter

Makes a little more than 1 pint

1 dozen apples, peeled, cored, cubed

1/2 Cup Water

1/4 Cup Brown Sugar

1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon All Spice

Step 1:

Peel, Core, and Chop a dozen apples. I used apples from our trip to the Apple Orchard. I’m no apple expert, but these apples were more dense than the apples I typically buy in the grocery store. The flavor was great, but…

 The rain falls on me

weather I am or not

good or bad…

life has more to do with today, 

than all our yesterdays,

memory grows dim…

the future is unclear

starlight, is the hope that fantasy may bring,

our fairytale grow dim,

childhood is gone

what is the burden of memory?

Moonlight is seen

year after year,

is more and more the same

timeless, here and now

reality, indeed more than we can bear.

figure it out? :)

your hands, do more than labor in the soil

they show people, your life

your heart shows people more than just your love

its hard for us to figure out, open it up and show what its all about

a life is much more than desire and good health,

friendship, virtue, and figuring out what its all about

its about practicing living them out

whats it really all about?


young one

don’t be afraid,

of testing life

don’t be too bold,

don’t be afraid to compromise,

your much to young, to know just now

your life is going places

so don’t just smile at friendly faces

live life for a little while

so you can tell about it

live the life others dream about

your little more than a child

in years

yet so much wisdom is comming your way

handle it in stride

don’t look to be too wise

thus are fools perceived

talk enough, don’t talk too much

for you to express yourself

don’t try to grow up too fast

its not worth the life you would be missing.

remember to remember this, wonder seldom matches this, in what we see in others be they man or beast, a reflection seldom noticed can be the greatest peace.

I would like to talk about the difference between opposites

they are not opposing one another, as a rule they go hand in hand, more like two sides to the same coin

not as the maney diffrences people make for each other, black and white, salt and pepper, dark and light, such are only artifical and rather shallow shades of meaning. discuss?

bright life

Your life, shines brighter than you know

I’m sure your told this often

I want you to know

from me, I realize this anew every morning

when I see understanding, sympathy, empathy, virtue

and yes, love I know these things come from inside me,

am reminded of the many ways you live these words

esp how you taught them to others,

what a privilege to have you in my memory

what a blessing to have you in my heart

what a joyfulness it is to see you,

your life is too great for one place

and your legacy, for this time

our deeds are older than we know

our faith is grounded in mystery

the world in harmony, whether we see it,

outside our lifetime, we play our part.
