“Christmas—Reflections and Symmetry” Cloyd Taylor

12/7/2014 for Summit Assisted Living

Christmas—Reflections and Symmetry


The eternal Word

         ever God and ever with God

became a helpless babe, a mere child

         that he could be ever with us and for us

         that we could be children of God.


There is an exchange of gifts—

Jesus came to earth

         to take us to heaven.

He descended

         so we can ascend,

he stooped down

                 (oh so far)

         to lift us up

                 (to the heights).

Jesus became a child of a woman

         that we may be children of God.

Jesus taught on earth

         that we may learn of heaven,

         the home God planned for us.

Jesus taught of death

         that we may learn life

         —the way is death

         his for us and others

         ours for him and others.

Jesus healed

         to make us well,


         so we could follow,


         to give us life—

         forgiven and loved,

         loving and forgiving,

         now and into eternity.


There is an exchange of gifts—

        what do we give him?

He needs nothing.

He wants only our good

         that we stand firm, erect, mature, loving.

He wants to train us

         to walk and live in love,

         to live and breathe with gratitude and by blessing others,

         to die daily to self,

         to become co-creators with him,

                 to grow a new self,

                 to become a new and glorious self,

                 to reflect his glory,

                 to put on his glory,

                 to follow him to glory,

         to become like him in glory—goodness—love.

He wants for us, from us, to grant us

         that we can be a glorious gift to him.

Canada, how beautiful! I'm from California. I think we all know where that is. I've been living here since I could say California, lol! I would love to visit other countries like Canada, especially Victoria :-)

Wow, it's been a minute since I've been here. I feel like I need to introduce myself, lol! I've been receiving your emails and your consent words of encouragement and love, so thanks. I've started a business for moms, I have a book coming out next year, it's more like a daily devotional, and I'm expecting my third March so it's been a busy time for me. I would love to keep up with you all and keep you all in my prayers, as you do the same. Poetry and writing has been my passion, and I feel like I have a lot to share with my generation.

Where I Find My Peace of Mind

Each morning as I wake up in a peaceful cozy warm bed at home or anywhere
Peace is each time I find myself enjoying silence of my mind
Silence without the annoying worrying noise when my tapes would run like on auto pilot in my mind
The relaxing feeling even as I have no job yet
I pray and wonder what Jesus with God’s plans is for me
I light up when I see a sunny day any day or anytime it feels warmer weather will be soon
Glad for the peaceful walks I can enjoy at nearby parks or even across the city
Just when I have my stressful moments when my mood drops to almost depressed out of the blue
I am able to share my feelings with God and my husband Joe and enjoy an evening of singing karaoke
Peace of Mind enjoyment watching movies with singing, dancing uplifting music
Enjoyment of spring flowers at the conservatory violets, daffodils, pansies, tulips, orchids, and goldfish swimming brought me peace yesterday.
Most of all the peace I feel within me took me a long time to experience and appreciate with the entire noisy atmosphere the annoying anxiety tapes continuous in my mind are now seldom
Thanks to Emotions Anonymous I have learned a better way to enjoy peace even with unsolved problems and a better way of thinking sometimes I welcome just blank mind enjoy my moment
As peace of mind as I embrace the simple loving world God with nature has helped me as I reach my fifty fifth birthdays.
I among my good health and Joe’s I am so glad I found a good new Job July twenty ninth 2013 Thank you for all your Prayers you responded to Dear God, Jesus, my Father and others!

Afraid To Say "I Love You" was created after a telephone conversation when I first met my partner Joseph-2009; now my husband to date.  So often we are afraid to share or say how we feel in Fear of past hurts or scaring someone off.  I found this in my collection of poems worth sharing!  God loves Unconditionally doesn't want us to run from genuine feelings of love!

So much time has gone by since we met
I haven't had a bad time with you yet
The more we are together the closer we get

Twice shy, fear of speaking my mind from my heart
Too often I've shared my feelings
So honest and open yet too shy to say what I feel

Not wanting you to turn on your heal
Too many past experiences So I am open
By surprise you were glad what you feel

When I said tonight on the phone
I want to be with you, care for you, what you Feel is the same
Finally told you how I feel-Three easy little words -'I love you!'

Surprised by Singing in the Trees


A Sunny Morning mid spring as I walk along my quiet neighborhood

Enjoying the blue-sky warmer morning almost all the snow melted

I walked along ended up near my niece’s house

All is quiet except I hear the delightful sound a thrill to my ears

I hear a familiar sound caught my attention not heard all winter!

Like the joy of hearing the First flock of geese in the sky on first day of Spring!


Suddenly I am entertained by the Beautiful sound of the American Robins

High above in the big old elm oak trees on the street greeting me!

At first I heard and saw  a couple of brilliant Red Breasted Robins looked like mostly male by

Singing in harmony their famous Trumpet-flutelike, sound like practiced drills; like the practicing for a choir!


I stood listening under the big trees no camera, just what I saw and heard.

Sounded so lovely as I stood watched was unforgettable as more Robins flew into the same tree

More joined with the first couple of Robins I heard singing first!

A triumphant easy to recognize pleasant sounds of a Chorus

Robins high in the Tree while singing for their mate like lovers of Spring!


Now the glory of spring followed by Fresh Spring Rain and warmer lovely weather

Let me remember the unforgettable American Robin, Bees shows us about nature love!

The Mating Season is now as more sound of Song that is Beautiful birds if you listen!

 I hope to enjoy more soon!

April showers will bring joyful spring flowers and warmth of our hearts.

A new day I am thankful for the blessings from God, Jesus, nature late spring!

For this gifted moment, I share the Symphony of Robins on Good Friday!

Good Friends help each other no matter how Big or Awkward the Shape or Size!

The Best Gift to give besides possessions,

Is the Gift of Time you spend with someone

Laughing, sharing, or updating each other on events in your life

Time can be a phone call, a visit, go out to lunch, or just a Winter Wonderland walk in the snow or whatever quality time I hope to share

The Old Fashioned way--sing Carols, and appreciate good Company--

Will last longer Year round!

A Nice gift idea & possessions is nice Time Is More affordable! 


Seasons Greetings To All!
