KINDNESS AND FORGIVENESS

KINDNESS AND FORGIVENESS

Kindness is not holding a grudge 

Over someone who has hurt you

In some way and/or betrayed you.

Kindness is forgiving that so-called

Friend or enemy when you don’t 

Want to. Kindness and forgiveness

Gives you many benefits you and lets

You smile more so people will

Want to be around you more.

Holding a grudge and not

Forgiving someone will make you

Miserable and other people won’t 

Want to be around you. So instead of

Holding a grudge over someone

Forgive, Forgive, Forgive them and

You’ll find that you’ll be so happy 

About being happy that you’ll 

Never want to hold a grudge again.

 

What Is LOVE…

What Is LOVE?

LOVE Is Loving A Person Or

Animal Unconditionally And 

Not Expecting Anything In Return.

LOVE Is Having Compassion.

LOVE Is Patience.

LOVE Is Kindness.

LOVE Is Not Losing Your Temper

With Someone When They Make 

You Angry And Frustrated.

LOVE Is Not Resentful.

LOVE Is Not Boastful.

LOVE Rejoices In

Truth Not Wrongdoing.

LOVE Endures All Things.

The Secret To LOVE 

Is Compromising And

Saying Yes Dear a lot.

A MOTHER’S DAY POEM

POEM BY: CRYSTAL STEWART

WRITTEN ON: 5-08-2018

My loving Mother

You’ve loved me and took care of me

From the time I was conceived

And you continued to love me

Even into adulthood despite all my faults.

My loving Mother, you’re my personal

Daily angel that the Lord sent me so

You would bring me happiness and encouragement 

Daily and I love you so much for that.

On this Mother’s Day Mother,

I want to tell you how much 

I love you and how grateful I am

You are my Mother and

I want you to know I love you for it too.

 

To All The Mother’s Out There And To Everyone Else, I Want To Wish You A Very Happy Mother’s Day.

3 Seasons In One Day

COLOURS OF A RAINBOW ON MEMORIAL DAY IN THE EVENING OF 5-29-2017.

Friday was an interesting day weather wise. Here in my little town in the country here in Pennsylvania you can have anywhere from 3 to 4 seasons in one day if conditions are right.  Guess What? the conditions were right to get 3 seasons in one day.

First, we had spring weather where the sunshine was out and warming things then we had Summer where we got thunderstorms and wind and finally we had our third season of the day which was Fall where we got garden style rain. But that’s not all we got. We were blessed with a rainbow and partial double rainbow. I thought I would write a poem about yesterday’s seasonal events. Sorry about the pictures being so dark but I took them in the rain. The rainbow and start of the other rainbow were much brighter and more beautiful than the pictures show.

Enjoy The Poem I Wrote.

 

THREE SEASONS IN ONE DAY

POEM BY: CRYSTAL STEWART

WRITTEN ON: 4-28-2018

Friday we got three seasons in one day.

Our first season started when I awoke to

Birds singing and the sunshine providing a

Nice orange glow warming the sky so

I could work outside. Then in the

Early evening came our second season which

Was Summer, we got wind and thunderstorms

Then soon after the second season,

We had our third season which was Fall.

Our Fall season brought us wind and a

Garden style rain. However, while staying

Inside and off the computer due to  thunder,

I noticed something bright and beautiful outside. 

It was a beautiful rainbow but at closer look,

I noticed another rainbow started over the

Full rainbow I saw. It was a double rainbow.

We were blessed with a beautiful double rainbow.

It was absolutely beautiful.

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.

Happiness(A Poem)

I wasn’t sure what to do for Sparks on this wonderful Monday. Then it came to me, I would write an encouraging poem. As soon as I started writing the poem the words just came to me like I was writing a song. Have an encouraging Monday and rest of the week my blogging friends.

HAPPINESS

BY: CRYSTAL STEWART

Happiness is a smile~Happiness is a wave of the hand~Happiness is the sun shining~Happiness is no snow~Happiness is going to a Lady “A” concert~Happiness is mentoring someone~Happiness is shoveling snow for your neighbor~Happiness is doing something nice for someone who hates you~Happiness is a cat laying on your lap~Happiness is marrying the one you love~Happiness is having a cat or dog as a pet~Happiness is a rainbow~Happiness is a beautiful pink sunset~Happiness is knowing you have done something for someone without expecting anything in return.

Daisy Mae All Stretched Out And Showing Off Her Grey And White Belly.

Hi and Welcome to WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING). I Daisy Mae have been busy getting my picture taken for my updated selfies. I worked so hard that I just had to stretch out the length of myself. Then I find out Sister Crystal is goofing off by dabbling in poetry. That didn’t really make me happy when she could be doing more worthwhile things than trying to write poetry.

DSCN0404
NOT QUITE.

OK, maybe I’m being a little hard on  Sister Crystal but poetry really? I forgave her when I found out the poem she was writing was about me that’s right she was writing a poem about me. What could I do but forgive her. I also have a new appreciation for poetry.

MY BEAUTIFUL STORY:

I was in college and one of my professors took the class to hear Maya Angelou speak. After we listened to her speak we had the opportunity to ask questions and meet her. She was quite a lady. I learned a lot from her. I wrote a post called WHAT MEETING MAYA ANGELOU DID FOR ME .

I not only got to hear Maya Angelou speak but I got to meet her too. Boy was I excited. I learned lots just by listening to her.

One of the main things I learned from her and learned growing up is when someone puts you down smile at them and tell them you hope they have a great day. You will not only surprise them but you’ll find it’ll make your day better too. Also, remember that a good attitude is always better than a poor attitude.

Have a great day everyone.

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.

Poem By: Crystal Stewart(2017)
