Heaven on Earth...

"You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth."

- William W. Purkey

I was first introduced to this quote by my son... in the photo is his daughter (my "Grand little girl"), who was lost in her own world of wonder, and living the words as she danced with her shadow. Indeed...heaven on earth.

As you celebrate Easter, may you be filled with the joy of your own heaven on earth.

God bless you...

Karen, I didn't know you had a grandchild. This picture is beautiful, and it is very peaceful and simple to me. I have always loved that quote, and I want to remember that one always, so I will write it down. Thank you for reminding me to dance and sing and love. Happy Easter to you, my beloved friend, and I hope you have a blessed day.

Such joy and focus the little ones have in life. If only we could hold on to that throughout our lives, we would be the happiest of people. Loved seeing the picture of your "Grand little girl".
Peace to you today and always.

About Me

My photo
I have always been inspired by my Grandfather's particular generosity and encouragement, along with his love for others and nature. His spirit lives on, and the influence is quietly with me as I write and share. This is my small offering that I pray will bless others and allow them to become Simply Inspired. warmly, karen -xok.
Each day provides its own gifts.
