Once in a blue moon . . .
I lay on my back on the grass and watch for shooting stars.
I put brown sugar on toast and drink hot chocolate.
I make the hula hoop spin.
I blow rainbow bubbles in the sunshine.
I sing with gusto in the middle of the field.

Once in a blue moon . . .
I write a real letter on paper and send it snail mail.
I say “thank you” or “I love you” or “good job”.
I pay a surprise visit to a shut in friend.
I give without counting the cost.
I take a chance on love.

Once in a blue moon . . .
Miracles happen.
Dreams come true.
Time heals.
Prayers are answered.
All’s right with the world.

Once in a blue moon . . .
I bask in the warmth of the sun shining through the leaves of a tree.
I stop to really listen to the song of a bird.
I giggle with delight at the fluttery kiss of a butterfly’s wings.
I cry real tears at the miracle of a new life.
I stand in awe of the delicate beauty of a flower.

Once in a blue moon . . .
I stop to listen.
I open my heart.
I hear God speak.
I trust and obey.
I feel His love.

Oh to live in a blue moon world!

This gives one a real feeling of what is truly important in our hustle/bustle world. Taking the time to enjoy what God created is enjoying the best of life.

Wow, what a powerful piece. Your honesty comes through so clearly.So many times in life we spend time searching for happiness when it is right there before us, When we stop asking God to send us a sign and open our eyes, the signs are right here.
