Wednesday Writing Prompt Challenge… HOME

This is my story. My truth. I miss him.

It’s said you can’t go home again

How true that is for me

Cause home wasn’t a place

Home wasn’t a building

Home was You.

I resided in your heart

Your soul my blanket

When I close my eyes

I imagine my head

Still pillowed on your chest

I can still feel you……

In my dreams I can always go home…..

Thoughtful Tuesday..

Thankful for my NOW

“This instant—this one now—is always your life’s beginning, a fresh chance to start living your destiny.” ~Unknown~

This quote popped up in my memories so I decided to pair it with this photograph I took the other day while on my Soul Stroll. The Now of this leaf’s life was to share its autumnal color and beauty with me. It’s nearing its end, yet is this the leaf’s final destiny?! Nope, for through decomposition, it will continue to live on, giving its nutrients to the soil.

Which got me remembering how I’ve tried living and reliving the past, and then having to ask myself, how’s that working for you Linda? 🤷🏻‍♀️ and of course I’ve tried living for the future, waiting for that something better to come along, all the while life was passing me by…….

So, I choose to live my life Now, to embrace it and appreciate the moment. The ups, the downs, the curves and detours, because I know God has it mapped out, and with Faith, I follow 👣knowing exactly where my final destiny will be ✝️
