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 ( A POEM WITH PICTURES AND A SLIDESHOW)

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.

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.
