Dreams from the Meadow -by Lois Macdonald

Dream of sweetness, it’s all around
While in the meadow, hear every sound
From brown-feathered larks singing
Notes played, heart-strings ringing
With all the charm nature brings.

A scurrying little grey velvet mouse
Runs round and round and round about
He perks his ears and watches me
Lay ever so still, and you will see
He will quickly vanish, one, two, three.

The tall grass parts and out he pops
With a bushy tail, it’s a coy red fox
He studies me with his golden eyes
Standing timidly, for he’s awfully shy
Soon he’ll disappear, with no goodbye.

Watching bumblebees while they dance
From flower to flower, not by chance
Monarch butterflies join in, to enhance
This vision of beauty and romance
Now charms me into, a dreamy trance.

I Tossed My Veggies -by Lois Macdonald

I tossed my veggies
Counting 1,2,3
First came the broccoli
Next came the peas
And counting 4,5,6
I threw in celery sticks
Until the whole concoction
Made me feel quite sick!

Counting on to 7
With an 8 and 9
Mixing in green lettuce
Made it look like slime
But when I finally reached 10
Mother brought the dressing
And with sweet relief
I cried out “What a blessing!”

So, the moral of this story
Is those veggies are good
While most are delicious
Only one tastes like wood
Don’t feed it to your dog
Nor your cat or canary
And never take a bite of
A veggie that turns hairy!

Now please put on a smile
Wipe away that frown
When you chew real hard
They usually go down so

Just plug up your nose
Close your eyes real tight
Toss those veggies back
Until they’re out of sight!

Happy Endings -by Lois Macdonald

I adore “happy endings.” Those stories that begin with you riveted to your seat hoping the damsel in distress will be carried off into the sunset, by the undefeated white knight. Or films that capture your breath holding it suspended in mid-air while the underdog claws his way to the top of the very last obstacle, and escapes from a dull, tedious life of complacency, and propels into an ocean filled with grand adventures. Those epic movies from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s set the stage for “happy endings” by believing that audiences would leave their theaters with a smile on their faces and a song in their hearts. They transformed ordinary days by weaving us into their colorful world of endless possibilities. Leading roles were built on the premise that integrity and high standards would be the necessary ingredients for good to gain victory over the villain, evil. Evidence that “Father,” did know best, “Lassie” always found her way back home, and “Happy Days” found a home in everyone’s heart across North America. These “happy endings” were morally bound, and while life wasn’t perfect, hope was their inspiration. It was quite natural that I would eventually find myself immersed in the unrivaled stories of the Bible. They were based on overcoming hurdles, filled with hope and endless possibilities, rescuing those needing a white knight and written by the Creator of all good things. “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” James 1:17 (NIV).

“The Bible. The greatest love story of all times. Its pages are filled with promises that have never been broken, hope for today and tomorrow, and best of all, it has a happy ending.”-by Lois Macdonald.
