What would you do?

What would you do when confronted with your own mortality?

I know some of you have wondered where I’ve been. And why my blogs suddenly stopped. I urge you to go to my blog at http://klorraine.com and read my story.

I also want to thank you for moving the blog number counter forward. Maybe I will see it reach 10,000 visits with this blog.

Today, the number was 9,325 viewers. It’s possible. It’s doable.

It’s said that before you die, your entire life flashes before your eyes.

“There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.” 1 John 4:18 ESV

I’ve enjoyed my time with my world-wide fans. I’ve loved entertaining you with my written words. And I look forward to finishing three books that are still in the hopper.

Until we meet again,

Happy reading.

Hugs, K. Lorraine

There’s a change in the weather

Lyrics from an old Benny Goodman song

“For there’s a change in the weather
There’s a change in the sea
So from now on there’ll be a change in me.”

We woke up this morning to thunder, lightning and a lot of rain. Moisture is something we don’t often get in the desert. But, when we do get rain, the results are breath taking.

So like the lyrics of the song, say… “There’ll be some changes made.”

Enjoy your day wherever you may be…

From rain to sunshine,

And my poem, ‘Mother, A Queen of Heaven,’ (Exceptional Contest Win) from the 2016 book ‘Poetry in Motion,’ is topping the chart.            abstract-sails

 

 

In memory of my mother, Rita.      mothers

‘Mother, A Queen of Heaven,’

A mother of nine children.
She gave us life.
She taught us to be strong.
She taught us the Love of God.
She taught us to pray.
She expected us to value the Ten Commandments.
She was a young widow who sacrificed for her brood.
She taught us to be independent.
She taught us the love of family.
She taught us to love one another as we love our self.
She taught us to respect our elders.
She taught us the value of hard work.
She taught us to act upon random acts of charity.
She taught us the value of education.
She taught us to follow our dreams.
She had a heart of gold.
She had a wonderful sense of humor.
She was loved by many.
She died happy…
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY Mom.

Thank you K. Lorraine fans from around the world. You never disappoint me. I appreciate your loyalty and support.

Keep it up! I love you,
K. Lorraine

March Wind

 

MARCH WINDS

AUTHOR UNKOWN

March wind is a jolly fellow;

He likes to joke and play.

He turns umbrellas inside out

And blows men’s hats away.

 

He calls the pussy willows

And whispers in each ear,

“Wake up you lazy little seeds;

Don’t you know that spring is here?”

 

I thought it might be fun to write a story using bits & pieces of quotes about the March wind. There were too many authors who penned the quotes. So, I chose to just paraphrase them.

Did March come in like a lion and go out as a lamb? In the desert of New Mexico, the answer is YES and NO. you see, the March winds are upon us here in the desert. The temperature is a gorgeous 88 degrees. But, the wind gusts range from 45 MPH and up to around 55-65 MPH.

What makes the March winds blow? Botanists say that trees need the powerful winds to flex their trunks and main branches. There is a wonderful mythical law of nature.

In the Sprig, the green leaves sprout from the buds. The Spring wind draws the sap up to nourish the budding leaves. And we enjoy watching them as they flutter and shake about.

When one has faith that the spring thaw will arrive, the winter winds seem to lose some of their punch.

And the rough winds do shake the darling buds of May. The Daffodiles, Lilies and an array of other flowers are in bloom. The sun shines bright with a warmth that rises with a glorious hallelujah.

The wind is differences in atmospheric pressure. If it weren’t for this rising and sinking motion in the atmosphere, we would have no wind. But we’d not have something we call weather.

Make the most of today. Our passions are the winds that propel us. Nothing will stop the truth from marching on. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into the trees.

Poems are one of the best ways to connect oneself with the imaginative world. We all know that May comes after April. And April is a month of a wild ride of alternating snow and sun. We all know that the flowers start to bloom in May, except for a few warm states where they show off every day of the year.

They say April showers bring May flowers to tell you that it’s okay when it rains. A daffodil clings amongst the downpour. April says she’s tired of it being cold. And  the showers stirred up the soil. May thought that was pretty nice.

On that rainy April day. Would all the flowers turn to showers in the sunny month of May?

Life is a splendid thing, for sure. Wasn’t God so nice to make the cloudy skies? He planted all the flowers. I want to thank God for His daily blessings. And for the softest of April showers too. If it wasn’t for the gentle April showers, there wouldn’t be the loveliest of May flowers.

So, my advice is, always look on the sunny side of things. And give thanks for a fresh new Spring.
