a good friend doesn't wait to be asked what they can do to help. they just do it. Mercia Tapping

Real friends do not wait for others to shout out in times of need. They ask if they can help and just do it.

Even The Smallest Of Milestones

Filed in Courage, Friends, Hope, Inspirational, Life by on April 29, 2016

even the smallest of milestones in a dark journey should be celebrated. Mercia Tapping

Sometimes whether we like it or not, we have to travel through some dark passages in life. We know rationally and logically that the darkness will not last forever and we bravely trudge on.

I have been in that place. But the greatest gift that friends gave me along the way, was to remind me that I was indeed making progress, even when it was hard to see it myself. They would insist that we celebrate the milestones, rather than fixing on some far off goal.

Suddenly, imperceptibly at first, you will find those milestones build up, until you are in the light once more having slain the dragons of darkness.

Everyday Bring Joy

Filed in Happiness, Inspirational, Joy, Life by on April 28, 2016

every day bring joy into another life and it will bring joy into yours. Mercia Tapping

There is a selfish part to bringing joy into others lives on a daily basis, because the joy that it will bring into yours in return is priceless. Do not think this has to be grand, noble gestures. For most of us, it can be as simple a heartfelt expression of appreciation of another, a small thoughtful good deed, or just smiling at a stranger.

For those who bring joy into the world, it is a way of being, and it radiates outwards from them.

The Beauty Of The Inner Soul

the beauty of the inner soul is like a flower. you have to wait for the petals to unfold. Mercia Tapping

Be patient with yourselves and others. As you wait and watch closely, you will eventually see the true inner beauty of yourself and others. And it is the inner soul rather than the outer shell which is the most important and to be admired.

The River Of Life

the river of life may have choppy waters but you will find calm downstream. Mercia Tapping

As we emerge from the protected cocoon of early childhood, it doesn’t take long to figure out that life doesn’t always turn out the way we want it. But it takes many years of enduring the repetition of scrapes, bruises and deep scars of life, that you also realize that nothing bad or for that matter even the good, last forever.

Life has its cycles. That knowledge has sustained me and through the bad times of more recent years. It has given me hope when all seemed very dark, that if only I can exercise patience, that this too shall pass. And yes, it passed

sunday is a day of peace for the soul. Mercia Tapping

Each week can rush by with the clatter of demands from work, family and chores to be done. But the 7th day was created as a day of rest for a good reason. We need to take a break from that cacophony of noise that engulfs us each week, and have a day of peace and enjoy the gift of contemplation.

Be sure that you put time aside to restore yourself tor what lies ahead next week.

As Widows We Have Loved

Filed in God, Happiness, Hope, Inspirational, Widow by on April 23, 2016

as widows we have loved well in the past and can love again in the future. Mercia Tapping

Nobody, including myself likes being widowed. Somehow that wasn’t in the game plan, and I for one had envisaged a very different life than the one I am leading now. But there is one thing for which I am deeply grateful.

I have had the privilege of being loved unconditionally and knowing the happiness which that can bring to a couple relationship. Nobody can take that away from me. Therefore, I am secure in that love, and know God willing, I will find another great love in my life.

Forget Looking Back

Filed in God, Hope, Inspirational, Life by on April 22, 2016

forget looking back at the path not taken. for us on the path of the future. Mercia Tapping

Please do not look back on your life with regrets about the decisions or paths you could have taken, but chose not to at the time. I believe that most of us are doing the best we can at any given moment.

Sure, some of the things we have done or said, didn’t turn out so good. But I think it is important to accept the forgiveness of God, and forgive ourselves, and move forward. It is only the path of the future over which we have a modest amount control.

So focus on where you are going next and pray for guidance.

So do not be afraid of silence. It is your friend.

My Life Has Been Turned Upside Down

my life has been turned updside down, so i think i will just hang out here for awhile. Mercia Tapping

I realize that for many of us, something has happened that has made our world topsy turvy and turned it upside down. It is fine to hang out in that space for a while. It is part of the process with no timetable attached. Just remember in the end to turn yourself right side up again.

So do not be afraid of silence. It is your friend.

Silence Is The Time

Filed in God, Inspirational, Life by on April 20, 2016

silence is the time to listen to your inner voice. Mercia Tapping

I think all of us need some alone time and a place to listen to that inner voice, which will guide you to the right place and put you back on your path. When our world is full of clatter and noise it is hard to listen and discern what is true for you.

So do not be afraid of silence. It is your friend.
