a daily breath...

A thought du jour, my daily breath includes collected and conceived observations, questions of life, fortune cookie philosophies, reminders, messages of peace and simplicity, unsolicited advice, inspirations, quotes and words that got me thinking. They may get you thinking too . . .

I'm like a pencil;
sometimes sharp,
most days
other times
dull or
Still I write.

to yours.

Oh, Come, All Ye Faithful
Posted on December 24, 2017 by j.g.lewisLeave a comment

I am going to church tonight. It’s not something I often do.
I haven’t been in a while; I’m not what you would call one of the faithful.
I am not even what you would call religious… but I am spiritual.
I believe in humanity, and tonight I want to hear voices.
I want to listen to the choir.
I want to listen to the congregation.
I want to listen to the memories that come with the music, on this night of all nights.
I want to feel at peace.
I want to feel the peace.
I want to believe that peace is possible.
I want to wish you peace on earth, in your world and mine.

Get In The Habit
Posted on December 23, 2017 by j.g.lewisLeave a comment

With everything that is going on, day in and day out, it can be difficult to take the time to catch up with yourself.
We are all busy. We all have things to tend to, people to care for, and other places to be.
It seems next to impossible to do something for your self.
It’s not always easy, but it is necessary.
Get in the habit.
