"Keep the Faith, Baby!"

Pheralyn Dove Haiku & Photo
Unwavering faith
allows me to know my prayers
are being answered.


I took this photo and wrote this poem today while on my daily walk. I was surrounded by nature, thinking about how grateful I am to be alive, how much I am thankful for, aware of all of my awesome blessings. Spirit reminded me to stay the course and expect great things to happen. Sometimes when we are in the valley, when things don't seem to be going as we planned, we have a tendency to get discouraged. Sometimes we go so deep into a funk that we actually let go of our dreams and give up on our convictions. But if something is worth having, it is worth working for. And if it is worth working for, it is also worth waiting for. Know that your true destiny will unfold itself in divine right order. As the late Congressman Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. used to say, "Keep the faith, Baby!"

"Take Heart"

"Take Heart" by Pheralyn Dove
Take heart, my friend. Step
into each day expecting
great things to happen.

We have this day. Each of us has the same 24 hours. How will you make yours count? Why not be grateful? Why not make an agreement with the universe to experience the best of all possibilities? When you open your eyes, ease your heavy heart by beginning to give thanks for what is right in your world. Gratitude is the gateway to miracles. What are you grateful for today? How will you make the best of what you've got? What great things are you expecting to happen?
