Chapter 9, Page 7, Book 16


Life is mostly froth and bubble,
Two things stand like stone,
Kindness in another's trouble,
Courage in your own.
Adam Lindsay Gordon


September 7th - taking a bubble break

I'm forever blowing bubbles,
Pretty bubbles in the air,
They fly so high,
Nearly reach the sky,
Then like my dreams,
They fade and die.
Fortune's always hiding,
I've looked everywhere,
I'm forever blowing bubbles,
Pretty bubbles in the air.

Music was written by John Kellette. The lyrics are credited to writers James Kendis, James Brockman and Nat Vincent. 

I love to blow bubbles and keep a bottle here at home to use whenever I need the smile of a bubble break. 

If there's one certainty about bubbles, it's that eventually, they burst. I try to remember that it doesn't take very much to burst someones bubble either.  Bubbles are very fragile and delicate. You can burst a bubble very easily. Sometimes two bubbles can hit each other and not pop but then again they can just pop all by themselves.

If it doesn't take much to burst a bubble then it stands to reason that it shouldn't take much to steal your joy or rob you of your peace right? 

WRONG.

The trick is not to create a bigger problem by blaming yourself for what is happening or allowing someone else to blame you. Don't buy into someone else's anger and don't let someone else's obsession or problem become your own. 

Try not to let others steal your joy or peace that the dear Lord gives without measure. Never let anyone burst your bubbles any more. Remember that there are always more bubbles to blow…

Happiness isn't a place in time, happiness is a state of mind. Don't let your bubble of happiness be burst because of anything that occurs in your life.

You are right about bubbles. Is there anyone in the world that does not like bubbles? And I have never thought about it too much, but they do lighten the soul.

Good one, this is neat! I'm smiling thinking of our great grand daughter, and blowing bubbles!

I like your advice not to have others burst our bubbles or disturb our peace. Very timely words. I remember working in the nursery at church and we had bubbles there to blow when the kids were a little upset. They sure turned their frowns to smiles when they saw the bubbles :)

This one hits the nail on the head, "it doesn't take very much to burst someones bubble . " And when it happens recovering from the disappointment can take fortitude.
