Here’s to Life!

We can put whatever we want on a bucket list, but that doesn’t mean we’ll have the time, energy, ability, or finances to make them happen. We also can’t turn back the clock and do something we regret not having done when we were younger. We missed our chance, but if we so desire we can still experience everything we feel passed us by. However, it might be in unexpected ways.

Inherent In Suffering            An Hafiz poem interpreted by Daniel Landinksy

Inherent in most suffering, especially of the mind or heart, is feeling, is believing, that you can miss something in life.

But that is not true.  For on your wedding day with the Sun, one of His presents to you will be – if you want it – every experience that has ever been known or can be known.

Yes, a divine treasury awaits each soul.  It is the INFINITE, infinite possibilities, that you can really borrow from at any moment, right now.


John 14:1-3

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, so that where I am, there you may be also.


“Here’s To Life”

No complaints and no regrets

I still believe in chasing dreams and placing bets

And I have learned that all you give is all you get

So give it all you’ve got

I had my share, I drank my fill

And even though I’m satisfied, I’m hungry still

To see what’s down another road, beyond a hill

And do it all again

So here’s to life

And every joy it brings

Here’s to life

To dreamers and their dreams

Funny how the time just flies

How love can go from warm hellos to sad goodbyes

And leave you with the memories you’ve memorized

To keep your winters warm

But there’s no yes in yesterday

And who knows what tomorrow brings, or takes away

As long as I’m still in the game, I want to play

For laughs, for life, for love

So here’s to life

And every joy it brings

Here’s to life

To dreamers and their dreams

May all your storms be weathered

And all that’s good get better

Here’s to life

Here’s to love

And here’s to you
