Remembering When and Why: Being Wy and Well

IMG_2121I prepare to attend the funeral (Celebration of Life) of a beautiful 39 year old lady and I am feeling lonely for her family. In my role as a minister , I have attended and participated in many funerals but this one has given me some pausing and remembering. It may be the fact that I have seen the pain of a mother and father up close and personal finding out about the death of their baby girl. This was my niece, Merceda and every year we honor her memory. This year we even dedicated a portion of my online radio program to her memory. I believe that the process of wellness for grief is laced with grace and mercy. I sit here at 01:40 knowing it would be good if I was able to sleep but instead I choose to write. I sometimes remember the “When” I am most affected by life and death situations but not the “Why.”  These time, places and spaces escape my finite self. soul, and spirit. I believe it will be necessary for me to help others who are hurting by being Wy and Well. Maybe this will help me get to my short sleep session on this cold March Saturday. Morning as I struggle with this wellness concept.

WWOW: I Will Surthrive!

I woke up at 03:00, looked out the window and found four inches and I really need you to understand that I will not be complaining and crying on your shoulders of heavy snows persons who look down on our barely iced streets.

Well I have already looked at every neighborhood in my city with all these facebook twitterings so you get no snow pictures from me today. Instead since it is a throw back Thursday and I have failed with the reblog Wednesday crowd. I will just rehash a poem that was published in Senior Magazine in 2005. I am going to tag it with everyone of the tags so if you get this message on a butterfly , write back and tell me how to do reblog Wednesday effectively. http://www.wyswoods.wordspress.com. Yet if I do not hear from anyone, I will “Surthrive” In the voice of my own self !

WysButterfliesonIcepoem2005 with simplicitycardThe Poem is “Butterflies on Ice”

I see your wings through the ice

I dream of the time when you are free

The spirit of freedom has a price But God will shine a light to see

Yes I know that butterflies will emerge

And we will watch them move through the air

so that it will soon just be a memory to share

of the winter season when butterflies were on ice.IMG_1618

WWOW: BeWOW and The Ways of Wy and Wellness

FOTE047MarcwyatlobbydaywithSenHarris030315h 3, 2015 was my #BeWoW day as I stood in the Senate Library in Tennessee State Capitol Senate Room. Yes, we took the picture after everyone had left but it still was a great feeling to stand there. I was in town to talk to my Legislators about cancer Care and Cure. (note I do not cap cancer) It really is what gives me the feeling of Being a Wow Volunteer.

Wy’s Five for this Fellowship and Wellness Focus.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Circle of Five.” I just decided to share a picture from our holiday 2014 where we had Family Blends and Friends which included Children Grandchildren and Great Grandchild. I have five multiplied!IMG_0007
