Angels with you  remain ,
Nothing you give goes in vain,
Your blessings and miracles start to rain ,
Your love and spirit , they all contain ,
You move with the flow of life
Again , again and again…

Deeply honored to share this beautiful poem written by our dear fellow blogger Kevin from What Words May Come. This is lovingly dedicated to his sweet daughter Tara.


Ever does the new moon rise

Yet black in the clearest autumn skies

Undaunted by earth’s rotation abound 

Creeping ever so slowly above the soft ground


As early the glory of morning sleeps tight

The day brings it refuge to open with light

But only to fall back to sleep once again

Brings closure to dream of a new morning’s grin


The heart on its journey can be quite the same

To open and close with emotional aim

While we wonder throughout our life in a daze

It’s a challenge we face walking through life’s maze


And doors have their hinges that swing to a stance

They’re open or closed as they move in the dance

We all are like doors if we look at our lives

We open and close like husbands and wives


While some of us never quite reach our crest

Like the moon we shine full when we are at our best

Relationships often take the same road

Making too much of one thing to carry a load


But when that load becomes too much to bare

We wane like the moon and start not to care

It happens as mortals for that’s what we do

We wax and we wane in relationships too


So, keep your heart light and look to the stars

For you never quite know what might create scars

Yet scars are a sign that you truly did live

And for that be thankful that your heart can still give

The Alphabet Game of Love

One of the most common things that happens in a relationship, once the newness wears off, is either not saying, “I love you” often enough or else saying it almost as an afterthought.  Couples do tend to say, “I love you” when they are parting for some reason…heading out the door to work, even going to sleep.  But using the words often becomes a matter of routine, and while the words are true, the value is lost in the routine.
A great way to keep this from happening is to play what is called, “The Alphabet Game of Love.”  It requires a little bit of pre-set-up, but the real challenge is in the gameplay.Using a calendar, label each day with a corresponding letter of the alphabet, omitting Q, X, and Z (these are always difficult letters).  On the day each letter is assigned, replace the word “love” with a word that starts with the assigned letter.For example, with the letter A, substitute adore, appreciate, accept.  For the letter B, try believe in, bask in. 
The challenge is that the phrase cannot be used if there is not a word to replace love with the corresponding letter.  And words can’t be used more than once. Be forewarned, this is not easy!  But what it accomplishes is that it makes each person in the couple stop and think about a true feeling, sentiment or value they place upon their partner, rather than stating their love in a rote way. 
It also provides a sense of competition, which couples enjoy when playing against each other.  And yet, there are no losers.  Each person gets to hear something true and meaningful from the other on a daily basis, and this sharing increases their bond as they honor the other. And don’t worry if you can’t think of a word, no matter how hard you try! 
As stated, this is not easy!  It’s okay to, once in a while, throw out a funny, off-the-wall word (imagine something like ‘peacock’ for the letter P!).  It will make you both laugh, and laughing together is also a great way to increase your bond! (For more difficulty, a cup/jar/basket filled with individual pieces of paper with a letter of the alphabet can be used instead of a calendar.  A random letter is pulled out the night before to be used the next day.  This gives the couple less time to prepare ahead to think of words to use.)
