The Power of “Positude”

May flowers bring a shower of colors and scents to our jaded lives.

The outdoors beckons us to come out and explore the wonders of Spring.

Winter has passed into our memories as we celebrate our survival of long dark days and cold nights.

We believe in the power of hope.

Hope that tomorrow will be a better day. Hope that life is worth living. Hope that Positude will be a lit candle, in the darkness of life.

Sitting in the warmth of the spring Sun I count my blessings with Gratitude and Thankfultude. Away with complaining. I embrace life with a Celebratetude.

Death, Disease and Destruction are a part of our reality.

With a Faithfultude we face the enemies of life without Feartude. May peace prevail in your soul!

Be well my beloved friends.

Always Agape,
