Amazing Happiness

I am so happy......
Arising prematurely in the morning to be, walking beside the glistening sea.
Greeting the dawns colour spectrum display, reminiscing with the sunset at the end of the day.

I am so happy....
Watching  as folks merrily make their way, to a cruise ship anchored out in the bay.
Watching the pelicans floating with the tide, eager eyes seeking fish that frustratingly hide.

I am so happy......
With Gods Creation, ...the simplicity of life,  the loving companionship of husband and wife.
Families picnicking as laughing children play ball.
Palm trees gently swaying, yet still standing tall.

I am so happy....
For all that I have,...the good and the bad, as the comparison makes me appreciative and glad.
So put on a happy hat of POSITIVE THINKING...
Subsequently all will be brighter, and God will be winking....C.M.L

Romans 15:13
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.


  1. Good post. Is that your boat in the background?

  2. Oh Crystal Mary,
    Isn't this just a most glorious post? I love the boat and the water and most of all, seeing both of you! I can see that your favorite place is the beach--mine too! Have a beautiful weekend. And also, hope you're feeling better.

  3. Your words are both sweet and wise.

  4. Oh, I wanted to tell you something else...the poem is so lovely AND I just read your post about your daughter-in-law winning the talent contest...she must have a beautiful voice because that is a difficult song to sing!!

  5. Hello Georges, No...not our boat, it is much smaller..LOL
    This one tours out on the Great Barrier Reef.
    What a fantastic place to see...Hug to you.

    Hiya Cindy, I wrote this poem a few years back..I lived and worked at Redcliffe Penisulla then. Its a beautiful place.You can see the blue Pacific Ocean from every window of the local hospital.The pier and shops along the ocean front are so pretty and gay. Do a google search and see.
    Yes my daughter-in-law has a gifted voice, the judges said she sang it perfectly.. she has a beautiful soul also. I love her very much. Bless you. xxxx

    Hello Terra, My heart lived in the place I wrote about. I moved further north when my daughter came to live in Queensland and wanted me closer to her. Hugs xxx

  6. This place is so welcoming, I had a lovely visit!
    thank you for your nice comments on my blog, there's no place like home!
    the friends I have met through I Owe It All To Him are such treasures!

  7. Hello! :) I love your blog! It's so loving and inspirational with so much information to boot. My husbands mother's family lives in the mountains of Tenn which is so full of history and beauty. I love it there. I love your country for what ever reason and have wanted to visit there one day for sure. I have met so many wonderful women from there. I'm so glad you visited with us at our blog so I could meet you! I'll be back later to explore some more in your fabulous world here. Thanks again for visiting me. It is a pleasure meeting you and I hope a friendship grows with us. I became a new follower here too. :)

    TaTa for Now!
    Many Blessings,

  8. Good morning dear Crystal Mary!
    I just love coming to visit you. I hope you are feeling better too. I loved your poem and the photograph of you and your husband is gorgeous.
    It's lovely being able to put a face to a name when you think about someone and I often think of you. Thank you for your many visits to me, you are always so kind and loving.
    Blessings and Hugs
    June xx

  9. You guys look so happy and I love your scripture!

  10. Wow, what a wonderful poem, Crystal Mary. I love the picture of you and your husband. I agree with June. It is very nice to put a face and name together. Thanks for your visit to my blog. I appreciate all my visitors.

  11. It's a beautiful poem and it makes me so happy and grateful when I read it. sandie

  12. Thank you for visiting my blog's so nice to "meet" you.

    What a beautiful poem!! And a beautiful photo. All that glorious ocean water just thrills me to no end. I think Australia would be a beautiful place to visit; unfortunately, I hate to fly, so it's doubtful that I'll ever get there. I will have to visit there vicariously through people like you.
