ANGELS AMONG US                                                      

 Image result for image of a guardian angel
We each hav a guardian angel
Here to guide us every day
and to guard us from the dangers
That we meet along the way.

You may not ever see your angel
But you'll know you're in his care
When you turn and see the pitall
That you didn't know were there.

Some time when it is quiet
An the light is growing dim,
You may lift your eyes up quickly
And just get a glimpse of him.

He sends an angel frequency
That only you can hear.
If you keep your ear tuned to it,
He will come in loud and clear.

That voice of caution you had thought
Was only in your head
Is from the angel God has sent you
So you'll never be misled

By false voices all around you
That would make you lose your way
Thank God for your guardian angel
Every time you kneel to pray.

Smile It Is Free

Published on July 2008
A smile is cheer from you to me,
the cost is nothing, it's given for free.
They console the weary and gladden the sad.
And can make someone happy when they are mad.
Unlike blessings in which we pray
it's the only thing you keep when you give it away.

SMILE IT IS FREE

A SMILE IS CHEER FROM YOU TO ME,
THE COST IS NOTHING, IT'S GIVEN FOR FREE.
THEY CONSOLE THE WEARY AND GLADDEN THE SAD.
AND CAN MAKE SOMEONE HAPPY WHEN THEY ARE MAD.
UNLIKE BLESSINGS WHICH WE PRAY
IT'S THE ONLY THING YOU KEEP WHEN YOU GIVE IT AWAY.

THE MANY FACES OF THE OKANAGAN VALLEY


MAY IN BLOOM May is so beautiful:
Orchards are fair;
Branches of fruit trees
Make gardens of air.

Flowers of fragrance
Bloom in the light;
Fall like the snowflakes
Showering white.

Orchards of heaven
Grow with a grace,
And like a blessing
Perfume the place.

Each tree in blossom,
Each lovely spray,
In this month of Our Lady,
Bring glory to May.

                                                                      Helen Maring

May Day by Sara Teasdale
             
A delicate fabric of bird song         

Floats in the air,                           Image result for images for may day
The smell of wet wild earth 
Is everywhere. 

Red small leaves of the maple 
Are clenched like a hand, 
Like girls at their first communion 
The pear trees stand. 

Oh I must pass nothing by 
Without loving it much, 
The raindrop try with my lips, 
The grass with my touch; 

For how can I be sure 
I shall see again 
The world on the first of May 
Shining after the rain?
