Searching for Rainbows
Our pallet now filled
Brush seems to glide now
With magic that's spilled

Colors to warm you
That make you feel blest
Mixing or matching
This canvas your best

Always we're searching
For greatest array
Colors that compliment
Our life every day

There on my canvass
For all now to see
Pinks overflowing
With sweet harmony

Purples to compliment
Blues always dwell
Yellows for cheerfulness
It has certain spell

Use every color
Combined love to share
Each canvas created
Life's rainbow we wear.

LIFE IS A TEST
One of my favorite posters says,

"Life is a test.
It is only a test.
Had this been a real
life you would have been
instructed where to go and
what to do." Whenever I think
of this humorous bit of wisdom, it
reminds me to not take life so seriously.
When you look at life and its many challenges
as a test, or series of tests, you begin to see each
issue you face as an opportunity to grow, a chance to
roll with the punches. Whether you're being bombarded
with problems, responsibilities, even insurmountable
hurdles, when looked at as a test, you always have
a chance to succeed, in the sense of rising above
that which is challenging you. If, on the other
hand, you see each new issue you face as a
serious battle that must be won in order
to survive, you're probably in for a
very rocky journey. The only time
you are likely to be happy is
when everything is working
out just right. And we
all know how often
that happens.

and it's all small stuff"
