The new year began with a bang and so much is still happening. I am blessed beyond measure and owe a great deal to my Dad, Leon Elliott Lyles, Sr. Our talks and discussions guide me through much of my life. We had an agreement for dialouge, based on three points; 1. Confidentiality: a promise that whatever we spoke on, was between us, 2. we had to agree to disagree, no arguments, period, and 3. we could talk about anything, including the big three:sex, relidion, and politics. Today is Daddy's Bearthday. He was born January 31, 1917. He would be 99 years old were he to be alive today. He was one of the first African American Naval officers, opening the door for other to follow. He passed on into the next realm over ten years ago. I can't say I miss him because he is always with me, always. I speak with him, to him and of him so often, others think he is still alive. I love you Daddy, Happy Bearthday.
This week's theme from the ORACLE Cards:
Your strength is not determined by your ability to love others. It lies in your ability to allow others to love you. Open your heart to the possibilities for love. Then your capacity to love others increases tenfold.
The ORACLE Speaks ...
"all-ways remember to love yourself"
