Why Are we so Afraid?

This photo is from  Kindness Blog and if you are not following then I recommend you do .  The Words to this post are~

To those who attack ‘migrants’ online. Please take a few moments out of your day to really look at this photograph. And rethink.

Here is a father fleeing the war in Syria, crying whilst cradling his children.

Should he stop searching for a place of safety for his young family and take the children back into the war-zone?

What do you think he should do? What would you do in his situation?

Rethink!

I did.. And I wrote a Poem today as what I saw in the links below breaks my heart. 

syrian family feeling the war

Why are we afraid to share?

How is it we humans forgot to to Care

What would you do to protect your own

Wouldn’t you want to Flee a War zone.

~~

They gave up everything to seek a safe place

What is happening to the Human Race?

That we fear so much to give them a home

Didn’t our Nations escalate their War zone 

~~

What will it take to open our hearts

Imagine your Family ripped apart

These people have risked all in life and limb

Yet still we are afraid to let them in. 

~~

Why are we afraid to share?

We have to Change and Begin to CARE!

Revamping Garden Furniture~ Nature breaks

Making the most of Sunny days in between showers is what most of us in the UK are used to. I have to say this week has been topsy turvy weather-wise, with Sunshine and Showers at at times high winds. which reeked havoc in some coastal places such as Devon and Cornwall . 

So in-between the showers this week I have had a project on going. I decided to repaint the garden furniture, which must be at least 15 yrs old. It was looking very shabby and by the time I had scrapped yet more lose paint off it, it was looking even more worse for wear.

I have to say painting these three pieces look me longer than I thought. and by the time I finished my arm and hand knew about it :-) 

But the finished results were well worth the discomfort and aches for a few days.

We have been busy in the allotments and I took down the nets from the loganberries as they were about all finished and gathered in. I gave half a net to hubby who had ideas for the small fish pond

Subakin and Goldfish

 The wind meant the leaves were coming off our evergreen bushes fast and furious as old leaves died. So the pond was needing to be cleaned most days from the debris.

So Hubby made a frame using the fruit net to help as a barrier. The Fish also love the screen as they now no long submerge when they see our shadow. So we get to see them, and they don’t get a fright from us.

Hubby made this frame to stop the leaves from falling in the pond

All creatures great and small 

Spiders have been making their presence known to me all week. They no doubt have been prompting me in my creative skills,  And not only the spiders but I had a lovely long visit on my washing line from this lovely butterfly  The Red Admiral.

I have also had some time out to meditation and over several of them I kept seeing within them a face.. So yesterday I sat down with sketch pad and tried my best to capture the image of the face that kept popping into my meditations.. I have yet to find out his name.. but his smile was enough to reassure me all is well in my world.. I feel he is Tibetan .. So here he is

 Nature’s Colours

 

 

Colours are all around us, but do we really see.

We take every thing for granted, and act so seriously

Have you ever stopped to think, if the world was black and white.

Close your eyes for a minute think! What if you had no sight?

Never to see a tree full with shades of green.

Never to know the blues of skies and ocean seas.

 

 

Come with me on a journey, back to nature and discover

Open your eyes see afresh full of colour.

Collecting sacks of yellow is our busy bumblebee.

Making lots of honey in his hide amongst the trees.

Surrounded by the flowers, whose colours are so bold?

Colours of a rainbow, now there’s your pot of gold.

 

 

Rose red, primrose yellow, oranges and apples green.

Tell me, who created all these lovely scenes.

Dazzling bright, smoothly blending, colours of the spectrum.

Every colour you can imagine is Gods almighty emblem.

Eagles circling with effortless ease, around a snow capped mountain

Reflecting sunlight upon a lake. Cascading like a fountain.

 

Wildlife in our forests before they cut the trees,

Tiger, Bear, and Panda and swinging Chimpanzees

Icecaps snowy beauty of Seal and Polar Bear,

Icebergs that comes crashing in the warming sunny glare.

 

 

The fish deep in the ocean, the salmon in the stream.

All full of beauty, much better than any dream.

So when you next open up your eyes.

Look and SEE you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

At the beauty, which surrounds us, and it’s absolutely free.

For which I pray to thank our Lord, most gratefully.

Challenges~ We all face them.

We are so lucky, those of us here within the WordPress Community, we skip around our various friends posts, viewing and visiting far away places, as we share ideas, dreams, insights and visions.

Our lives may vary in culture, distance and ways of living, yet I am sure we count ourselves lucky to be free to choose among the variety of life gifts we are privileged in sharing in our everyday lives..  

I am also taking on a small challenge as I was listed in Ka’s post HERE in a 3 quote challenge While I have stopped receiving   awards, I am always up for a ‘challenge’ and my 3 quotes reflect people who overcame tremendous challenges in their lives and turned their lives around to make theirs and others better along their journey to Freedom..

I have long admired the man of this quote, and have read much about his life and his journey upon this Earth Life  While I was enjoying the Swinging 60’s this man was suffering his long prison sentence for daring to ‘challenge’ the establishment on its treatment of black people. And this is a Quote many of us throughout our lives can relate to.

“I have walked that long road to freedom. I have tried not to falter; I have made missteps along the way. But I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can only rest for a moment, for with freedom come responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not ended.”

Nelson Mandela

My next quote is from Nick Vujicic 

Nicks challenges have been huge, born without arms and legs it didn’t let it stop him from showing others there are No Limits to our capabilities.. What a recent Video here of Nick shows he Never gave up and now has a wonderful wife and child and he has inspired many to overcome their own personal challenges. 

So many of us allow Fear to stop us from striding forward into the unknown, we came here to experience LIFE!..  I hope we Live more in our Now moments and enjoy all Life has to offer.

Which is what I am doing this Summer as I embrace each brand new day. 

My Last quote is what I have had upon the bottom of me email for a few years and it says.. 

      “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” 
― Mahatma Gandhi

Mahatma Gandhi was another remarkable man, who brought Change to his world,

a few more facts about his life can be found HERE

The Challenge of creating a New World which holds more Peace and Love than Fear and Hate falls upon All of Us..

If we hold Anger, Hate, and judgements and let the few who hold terror and fear over us, then we allow them to win.

We need to alter our own ways of BEing to bring about Peace and stop our own Pettiness and squabbles. And show LOVE overcomes HATE and that PEACE begins in each of our Hearts..
