In honor of Jim's American Indian heritage here is a Lakota Prayer: Teach me how to trust my heart, my mind, my intuition, my inner knowing, the senses of my body, the blessings of my spirit. Teach me to trust these things so that I may enter my sacred space and love beyond my fear and thus walk in balance with the passing of each glorious sun.

For this Christmas here is a message from St. Francis de Sales: Make yourself familiar with the angels, and behold them frequently in spirit; for without being seen, they are present with you.

For Jim's Birthday, here is a favorite song: "Knights in White Satin" by the Moody Blues Nights in white satin never reaching the end letters I've written never meaning to send Beauty I'd always missed with these eyes before just what the truth is I can't say anymore, 'cause I love you, yes I love you, I love you. Gazing at people some hand in hand just what I'm going through they can't understand Some try to tell me thoughts they cannot defend just what you want to be you will be in the end 'cause I love you, yes I love you, I love you. God Bless Jim in Heaven, Amen

This Christmas I have a prayer and two quotes. God Bless Jim. A Christmas Prayer Lord, creator of all things wonderful, in the cold and darkness of winter, You bring light and life to us all with your gift of the newborn baby Jesus, He is a bright star in the sky. He is hope. Amen. Our task must be to free ourselves...by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty --Albert Einstein The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. --Mohandas Gandhi

For Jim's birthday I thought I would write down the song lyrics we used to sing together. It seems appropriate at this time. "Old Time Rock n' Roll" by Bob Seger" Just take those old records off the shelf I'll sit and listen to them by myself Today's music ain't got the same soul I like that old time rock n' roll. Don't try to take me to a disco You'll never even get me out on the floor In ten minutes, I'll be late for the door I like that old time rock n' roll. Still like that old time rock n' roll That kind of music just soothes the soul I reminisce about the days of old With that old time rock n' roll. Won't go to hear them play a tango I'd rather hear some blues or funky old soul There's only one sure way to get me to go Start playing old time rock n' roll. Call me a relic, call me what you will Say I'm old-fashioned, say I'm over the hill Today's music ain't got the same soul I like that old time rock n' roll. Still like that old time rock n' roll That kind of music just soothes the soul I reminisce about the days of old With that old time rock n' roll. God Bless You Jim

This Christmas I want to put one of Jim's poems here that I recently found in a small notebook at the back of a shelf. It's not social commentary as he usually wrote about, but a lighter side of him. Love Is Love is for the lucky few Love will rule everything you do Without it you will turn to sand With it you will always take a stand Some will be jealous of you Some will cheer your heart so true True love means you passed the test Those who lust are lost at best As soul mates we know all this is true Love is forever for me and you Be thankful each day for what you've got Never say why to things that are not Always be willing to lend a hand Help mankind to take a stand Be humble now, take the narrow path The wide road always makes us crash Little things in life mean the most Telling me your deeds don't come close A smile, a call, or concern if you are all right May save someone and make life right Share your gift with all everyday Loving all who are ready to receive it It's the only way by James H Pidgeon

On Jim's Birthday here are some quotes: I feel my fate in what I cannot fear I learn by going where I have to go... Theodore Roethke Teach us... To give and not to count the cost; To fight and not to heed the wounds; To toil and not to seek for rest... St. Ignatius The only wisdom we can hope to acquire Is the wisdom of humility... T. S. Eliot I wanted to put a couple of Jim's poems here but I put them in the "stories" section instead. His words are provocative and heartfelt. God Bless His Soul....

Oh Holy Night! The stars are brightly shining It is the night of the dear Savior's birth! Long lay the world in sin and error pining Till He appear'd and the soul felt its worth. A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn! Fall on your knees Oh hear the angel voices Oh night divine Oh night when Christ was born Oh night divine Oh night divine Led by the light of Faith serenely beaming With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming Here come the wise men from Orient land. The King of Kings lay thus in lowly manger In all our trials born to be our friend Truly He taught us to love one another His law is love and His gospel is peace Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother And in His name all oppression shall cease. Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we, Let all within us praise His holy name Christ is the Lord! Oh praise His Name forever, His power and glory evermore proclaim Oh night divine, Oh night, Oh night divine

On Jim's birthday I selected some favorite quotes to share. This Self is never born, nor does It die, nor after once having been, does It go into non-being. This Self is unborn, eternal, changeless, ancient. It is never destroyed even when the body is destroyed. Bhagavad Gita Life is given to us on the definite understanding that we boldly defend it to the last. Charles Dickens Man stands in his own shadow and wonders why it's dark. Zen Proverb All strength, all healing of every nature is the changing of the vibrations from within, the attuning of the divine within the living tissue of a body to Creative Energies. This alone is healing. Edgar Cayce The wise man is as a guest-house, and he admits all the thoughts that occur to him, whether of joy or of sorrow, with the same welcome, knowing that like Abraham, he may entertain angels unawares. Rumi

On this Christmas Day, I found a poem: Those we love don't go away, They walk beside us every day, Unseen, unheard but always near, Still loved, still missed and very dear. If you pay attention, just as you are waking, you may see a brief vision of your loved one and hear their voice as clear as day, or see them in your dream to let you know they are alive and well on the other side of the veil. Robert Frost said: " In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on." And so, we must live our lives here on earth to the best of our ability with the help of God and our loved ones who have passed over to guide us. God Bless us all. I have seen Jim in a brief vision, heard his voice. Another time I dreamed that Jim came to say "Hi" and then I woke up. This gives me comfort that he's ok in Heaven and is looking out for me here on earth. God Bless Jim on this Christmas Day. Amen

I live in gratitude to all my family, friends and especially Jim for the time we shared together on this earth. It has not only enriched my soul but has taught me valuable lessons in the emotional expression of the human heart. Love celebrates life. I thank you for celebrating the fullness of what we were, what we are, and what we are yet to become in Heaven. Amen

I had so much to to tell you and I had so many questions to ask you. I wanted you to know and meet your grandchildren. I always thought about you and prayed you would come back to see us one day. I wish things would have turned out different. I want you to know you had three children who loved you so very much. Rest In Peace Dad!! I have alway missed you!!

We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone; for part of us went with you, the day God called you home. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same; but as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again. God bless Jim and us all, Amen

We give thanks that Jim lived sixty-one years by God's Grace on this earth. We give thanks that Jim touched so many people's lives in a positive way. And we give thanks that when our time comes, Jim will be on the other side of the pearly gates welcoming us home. Amen
