Love Is

badge-smLOVE 1Another one of those weeks where I racked my brain on what to do for Positive Sparks Monday then wouldn’t you know it, it came to me or should I say the words came to me little by little until they just poured out.

Then I thought would my poem Love Is be a good Positive Spark. My answer came to me right away and that little voice kept saying was of course your poem will work because how much more positive can you get than love.

So this week my Positive Spark is on Love. 

LOVE 1

Love Is

By: Crystal Stewart

Love is a Mother and/or Father telling their children things will be alright when they aren’t sure themselves~Love is a parent cleaning and putting a band-aid on their child’s scrapes and then they kiss them on the forehead making things all better~Love is helping the elderly in the wintertime~Love is helping someone without expecting anything in return~Love is helping someone not as fortunate as you~Love is respecting the flag~Love is the compassion of a cat or dog~Love is a true friend~Love is someone willing to die for you and I to give us our freedom~Love is a mentor~Love is a Grandma giving you chocolate chip cookies~Love is having someone to talk to who is willing to listen and understands your problem~Love is a hug~love is a stuffed animal that can’t talk back to you.

So when you come across someone who needs your help, give them some love by helping them and/or just listen to them instead of walking on by.  Why? Please read the Bible verses below. That’s right, I said Bible verses. Trust me they are very helpful. The passage below is sometimes used for weddings.  A passage that was on a bookmark for my sister and brother-in-law’s wedding when they were married in April of 1992. 

Love…

is patient and kind;

love is not jealous,

or conceited, or proud,

or provoked;

love does not keep

a record of wrongs;

love is not happy with evil,

but is pleased

with the truth.

Love never gives up;

its faith, hope

and patience

never fail.

A TRIBUTE TO SHANDAR

 

DSCN0382I wrote a short poem about my dog Shandar who died. I called it A TRIBUTE TO SHANDAR.

Shandar~You came into our lives as an Alaskan Malamute puppy dog~Your dad was a champion and a Kal-Kan dog~You were the runt of the litter~You were a possible show dog~And not Expected to get as big as you got. ~ You took us for walks~You pounced on our beds and Pillows ~Chewed blankets ~ But all in all~You were a dog with a good disposition.

Shandar~You will be sadly missed but not forgotten~ You are forever in our hearts and Always be.~ Thank you for the many years of love and being our pet.~They were not only joyous~But they were also a blessing.

 

Please forgive the yellowing around the edges of this picture. On 11-9-1989, I drew this picture of my dog who passed away. I thought it was a fitting tribute to her.

DEER

Deer like most animals~Like to eat~In Fact if you feed Deer, you will probably not only end up feeding the Deer~But you will end up~Feeding other animals too.~When you Feed Deer~The Deer will eventually get to know you~And become Friendly to the Place~Where you can almost walk up to them.~Always remember,~Deer are still wild Animals~And still have instincts~That were born right in them~So always be careful~No Matter what~And to make it more interesting~You might want to get a Game Camera to Watch the Deer~And what else might come along.

WHAT THE COLORS OF THE AMERICAN FLAG MEAN TO ME!

The Colors of the American Flag are Red, White and Blue with Stars in the Upper Left Hand Corner and with the Fourth OF July just around the corner I thought I would write a poem about the American Flag in which I respect a lot.

Red is for the blood that shed during wartime by the men and women who fight for our freedom~White is for comfort that God gives when a soldier is hurt or dies~Blue is what the Families and friends of the soldier feel when they’re not around ~And the stars stand for all 50 states and the privileges some of these soldiers gave their lives for.

WHAT HAPPENS IN THE DARKNESS(THE BEAR)

It’s Almost Midnight~Darkness Is All Around~There’s A Loud Noise~I Look Out My Bedroom Window~I Scream~It’s A Bear~Then The Bear Gets On His Hind Legs~He Reaches To The Top Of The Pole~The Bear Goes After The Frog Bird Feeder~Then The Bear Goes After The Finch Feeder~The Bear Tears The Finch Feeder Apart With His Teeth And Claws~The Bear Is So Strong~ He Pulls The Pole Out By The Roots~The Pole Falls Across The Sidewalk~Then I knock On The Window~The Bear Goes Back On All Four Legs~Then All The Bear Does Is Mosey Away~And Eventually Goes Up The Hill~To Our Campsite.~Oh What A Sight That Was!

PETS

Pets  are loving, responsible, adoptable, part of the family, caring, they understand you But the best thing about a pet is they won’t put you down or talk back to you. A pet Accepts you for who you are not what they want you to be.

DREAMS

Dreams.

Imaginative, far-fetched, inventive, where are desires come to light but when you’re sleeping, be careful because your dreams can also be scary, dark, sad and fearful like an Abandoned animal that’s not sure what’s going to happen next. So when you dream, make sure you not only dream big but make sure you dream good dreams not bad dreams because whatever you dream may turn out to be a goal that you may want to Desire to reach.

FEAR

Fear is like being bitten by a dog or snake,

Fear comes on first day of school,

Fear comes on your first day of a new job,

Fear comes when you’re unemployed

Fear comes when you Retire and

Fear comes when a loved one dies.

But when fear tries to invade our lives

Don’t let it torture you because if

You do, you’ll fall into the pit of

Darkness, Sadness and Loneliness.

Falling into fear is also like a ship that has

Been sunk at the bottom of the sea of darkness.

So when you feel fear, think of all the

Good memories and friendships that

You’ve made from childhood to adulthood.

JOSIE AS A PUPPY.

WHAT IS HAPPENING BEHIND THE LOCKED DOOR?

What is happening behind the locked door?

Is it a child playing?

Is it a child doing homework?

Is it a Married couple making love?

Is it a pet chewing everything it can find?

Is it a Mother taking care of a child’s cut?

Who knows what happens behind a locked door

But what we do know is that mystery and Intrigue

Will always lurk behind every locked door. So when

We come to a locked door, think of it as another

Challenge that needs solved and don’t fear the unknown.

Poem By: Crystal Stewart(2017)

WHAT CAN ANIMALS DO?

What Can Animals Do?

This is a question asked by some people

Because some people think that animals

Are just stupid. But animals are really

Smart, cute, furry, slimy, dirt lovers, like to eat,

Easy to talk to, likes the sun, doesn’t talk back

And relieves stress. But there are some

Animals that also help our Elderly, Police

Departments, Fire Departments and some

Animals even serve as service dogs to our

Military and to people who are disabled.

Poem By: Crystal Stewart(2017)

WHAT IS DEATH?

What is death ?

Death is dark,

Full of tears

Like the water

Fills the sea.

Death is a broken heart

That eventually is mended

With unconditional love

Not one-sided love.

So don’t fear death

Because death is a

Part of life and

Can’t be avoided.

So always remember,

There is always a

Silver lining when

You face death.

THE SEA

The sea. Sparkling, beautiful, rough,

Lonely but gives us a good perspective of

What life can be like. If you go down into the

Deep Blue sea you’ll find that it’s dark and gloomy

Just like Death is, so don’t be afraid of the

Darkness and gloominess of the sea because in

Life, we often will face death, fear, loneliness,

Darkness but the good news is it usually will

Not last long and it will give us a much

Better perspective of the situation

That we are facing.

🎈🎁🎁🎈BIRTHDAYS🎈🎁🎁🎈

Birthdays, Birthdays

They are great when you are a child but as

Soon as you become an adult, you don’t want to

Celebrate anymore. Why do we worry about

Birthdays when they’re here and gone like the

Breeze that whisks over the ocean. So

Instead of worrying about  how many

Birthdays we have, let us reflect back on the

Memories we’ve made over the years and

Just enjoy your birthday and think to

Yourself, now how many years young am I?
