Strength Surfaces in Times of Unheaval. Be the Catalyst!

Dare to be more each day!

Sometimes we have to go to the depths of despair to find the core of our being. This has been just such a year for everyone on a global scale. We have to regroup and become the CATALYST!

How do we go on? By believing in each other!

Dwelling on the past, however, has never helped anyone. The future cannot change, redeem, or soften the past. It is what it is, and we all must accept it. Acceptance, though, is not in hiding from the past, but rather in learning from the past. That is how all of us, one at a time, can look to a greater tomorrow. One small act of kindness is the CATALYST!

Everyone was touched by the virus. We have all looked death in the eye and watched strong, remarkable people succumb to its ghastly demise: wives, husbands, lovers, family members, friends, co-workers, celebrities, world leaders, politicians, doctors, nurses, police officers, first responders, the military, the old, the young, children.

All races, ethnicities, countries, cities, towns, villages, etc., have been touched and reminded of our own humanity. It does no good to get caught up in statistics and numbers and what groups of people are more vulnerable than others because we have seen it change, augment, mutate, expand, decline, and then rise its ugly head again to devour another  statistic. So, find a drop of strength to become the CATALYST!

No one is immune!

Whether you reflect in sadness or fantasize about happier times returning, let go! Live your life! But do so safely and responsibly, thinking not only of self or country, but of the entire planet which is home to all. We who remain must be strong enough to be the CATALYST!

Love and respect our home.

These are the hardest words I have ever penned. I may not be much of a CATALYST, but I know my strength is in my writing. I choose to use my strength to face the future. Wish me luck and life! The same to all of you! 

Blessings and love to all the CATALYSTS out there whose STRENGTH and DETERMINATION will give every one of us a new tomorrow. I am writing to every soul upon this planet in memory of every soul we have loved and lost.

Summer’s End

Where did the days go?

So quickly and so silently

Stealing swiftly to-and-fro

I lost a season

Without a reason.

But the beauty of autumn

Beckons us all

Ease the heat and humidity from

Every locale and lull

Us blessedly into the harvest

So that the earth’s bounty may rest.

Really Very Miracle …Tumblr.com

True to form, I’m learning social media as I use it. So Tumblr is new for me, but it’s interesting. Please, go take a quick peek at my new site. It’s called “Really Very Miracle”.

We all are unique, beautiful, and outstanding individuals. We need to use our love and intuition to connect, discuss, and aid our societies. Each tormented soul or mind must be touched by love and healed. There is plenty of love to go around if we but search within ourselves to seek the quiet pleas of haunted eyes, crying out for help.

You will be astounded by the glory and miracles we possess that are never released and allowed to grow. Find your inner peace and we can change the world….one silenced, fearful being at a time. It is so worth the effort to watch someone blossom before your very eyes …It is “Really Very Miracle” to touch another soul’s heart when you act as a vessel of The Creator who gave you life. Life is for abundance, joy, and love. Let’s pass it around and share the manifestation of heaven on earth.

Blessings, Deborah A. Bowman

New Year’s Eve Message

earth

2016 was a year of firsts and lasts. Hello to new events and occurrences, not all of them good; goodbye to many familiar faces and loved ones. Heaven has many shining lights that once graced this earth. Topsy-turzy news and weather kept us in a state of imbalance, which can produce a giggle at times or plummet our spirits. We take the sad and the glad, the strong and the wrong, and the glow with the show … all in stride, anticipating the ride. I believe we all long for a little peace and subdued quiet in 2017. The erratic and didactic have become a little cumbersome.
Yet, blessings came to us as well in this 16th year of a century …
To strengthen our faith and sustain our venturing ….
For all those joys of spirit and laughter …
I thank our Lord, Who lovingly gives us all the Hereafter.
Deborah

Hello World!

I’ve been under-the-weather for weeks! The flu can be very dangerous for those of us with compromised immune systems. I have Lupus/Rheumatoid Arthritis–20 years +. The flu shot didn’t include all the mutated strains out there this year. I don’t mean to complain. In fact, I want to say, Thank you, God, for getting me through upper respiratory infection/pneumonia once again.

IT’S GREAT TO BE ALIVE! Blessing to all my followers. Stay well and happy!

Deborah
