The Sands of Ebony Time ~By CordieB

The Sands of Ebony Time Shows on My Face
The bitter – sweetness of life and love leaves its trace
From whence an infant of purity and innocence
To timeless history and the beauty of woman’s essense

The lines shown around my deep brown eyes
Are lines of much laughter, joys and cries
My hands are wearing down like melten butter
From years of living love; caring for self and others

The expressions on my face reflect so clear
Wisdom and insight gained throughout the years
Living and loving through thick and thin
Embracing God’s grace and mercy of love within

Sharing my love with so many souls
Giving of self as time takes its toll
On body and mind as life’s novel reveals
More mysteries for the heart if life so wills

Reeping the blessing of so many souls
Gracious of the puzzle that made life whole
For me as the time passes so quickly it seems
Like only yesterday, I dreamth my very first dreams

As the sands of time harmonize with the winds of fate
that causes all living beings to disinigrate and dissipate
but love survives, energizes and recreates
And so life cycles and moves to invigorate


The newborne babe who starts life anew
And through his eyes reaches out to me and you
Then suddenly we realize life’s wonders starts again,
and were’re intricately part of a bigger plan . . .
To ensure that love for life continues on
By sharing wisdom, knowlege by passing on
the Hands of Ebony Time’s blessed seed
To all kindred spirits whose souls we feed.

Photo Friday! Clouds

Clouds on the Horizon By CordieB

Watching Clouds over the horizon at the end of the day;

Reminds me of watching the many scenes of my life fade away

The clouds are so beautiful, heavenly, and treasured so much

You feel you can reach out and behold; yet they remain out of touch

They fade in and out of the horizon so slow yet so fast

Like the scenes of our life move from present to past;

We never can regain this moment ever again-

The cloud will never formulate the very same pattern again

To bring us a bit of shade or perhaps a late evening rain;

But the beauty is such, we hold it ever so near in our minds

As such we should embrace our present moments in time;

For this moment will never again be ours to behold;

So breath in the present of nowness into your very soul!

Embrace each moment like the clouds in the sky

Embrace rain, shade and shelter, and you’ll seldom ask why.

Embrace the beauty of allness of God’s bountiful Creation

Embrace the allways of nowness with each passing cloud on the horizon.

The Storm Clouds Aways Give Way to the Sunshine! Courtesy of CordieB.

The storm was a bad storm; I questioned God as to why. . .

I had to endure this storm for so long; would it ever pass by?

I was scared and confused as the darkend thunder-clouds clasped so loud!

I cried out in fear as the rains down poured; you would not be proud!

But somehow I kept my faith; I knew in the back of my mind . . .

That soon this raging storm would be in the place called behind

me and I would see the beautiful sunshine once more in my sight. . .

I looked up the road and the sun suddenly peeked through the clouds with delight!

I knew that the end of the storm was a blessing

Thanks to my Creator for strength to endure another life lesson!

Photo Friday – Traditions!

This week’s photo Friday is entitled “Traditions.”  I do appologize for being late with my submission; I’ve been quite busy since Thursday.  Instead of doing pics, I decided to do a video, incorporating some pics on “tradition.”  I think the video and words will have a good idea on our traditions.  Have a great Sunday!

Valley of My Dolls

Valley of the Dolls ~Dionne Warwick

Gotta get off, gonna get
Have to get off from this ride
Gotta get hold, gonna get
Need to get hold of my pride

When did I get, where did I
How was I caught in this game
When will I know, where will I
How will I think of my name

When did I stop feeling sure, feeling safe
And start wondering why, wondering why
Is this a dream, am I here, where are you
What’s in back of the sky, why do we cry

Gotta get off, gonna get
Out of this merry-go-round
Gotta get off, gonna get
Need to get on where I’m bound

When did I get, where did I
Why am I lost as a lamb
When will I know, where will I
How will I learn who I am

When did I stop feeling sure, feeling safe
And start wondering why, wondering why
Is this a dream, am I here, where are you
What’s in back of the sky, why do we cry

Gotta get off, gonna get
Need to get off of this ride
Gonna get on, gonna get
Gotta get on where I’m bound

Dedicated to all the Dolls who might feel they are in the Valley today.  

Peace, Light and Love . . . CordieB
