ONCE UPON A TIME

"Good morning world... What do you think about when I say Once Upon Time? And asking you that Once Upon Time question of mine, as you know, yesterday I was writing about the sights and sounds of summertime.

So, realizing whether it be the sounds and sights of our sunrises.... or the disappointments found in our sunsets.... you too need to know.... that everything in our life, has all  started out with.... Once-Upon-a-Time......

And stating that beginning fact I  also know you will agree with me, that in our story's life line...… Once Upon A time..... will always be intriguing, exciting,  and yet a little bit scary! 

That's why,  changing things up again before we shut summers before and after door....I thought I would write a little bit more about, beginnings and ends.... sunsets and sunrises....also our story's Once Upon A time.

Happily this new change of mind will be falling right in line with my continuing thoughts about summertime.

Because being a Professional Author who writes children's books, and who has another NEW one coming out soon.....just like good old summertime..... Once Upon A time..... will always be a friend of mine.

So with my mind preoccupied with my new children's book, while realizing that all of my original stories will always begin with Once Upon A Time and end with Happily Ever After too.....in that familiar writing line, I thought I would switch my blogs theme to something that means a lot to me, and you.
 
Because...… Once Upon A Time in the beginning of everything ….whether that be the opening line for a new fairy tale of mine, or the Once Upon A Time for your life..... that’s how every delightful Story-of-the-Heart starts! 
 
So saying…. that the Start-of-the-Heart….. is where it all begins….. as we are heading to the end of a lot of things…. Once Upon A Time will forever be very important to you and me day and night.
 
Because everybody believes..... that Once-Upon-a-Time makes everything alright! 
 
Bottom line. We all know for us to have a Happy-Ending to our Happily-Ever-After….that everybody must first have a Once-Upon-a-Time in your life!
 
Therefore closing realities door, while temporarily leaving the pain and sunburn of my summertime's theme behind, today I thought I would do something different once more, one more time again. 
 
That means, still thinking about summertime, as a professional author (who loves to write fairy tales for young and the younger) I thought I would tell you another kind of new and old story this morning as we are gathering together, while listening to a new tale being told. 
 
So, changing my summertime theme to something that means a lot to you and me.... like all good stories will do in their in-between lines that are mixed in with secret clues and hidden truth…. this post of mine will also be starting off with..... Once-Upon-a-Time….
 
So, starting this Story-of-the-Heart off…. living somewhere in a land of amazing fantasy and conjoined reality….while searching for its Happily-Ever-After going along its way, as this tale is also trying to find destiny…I thought I would write you a different kind of a short story today.
 
That's why being a children's book author...…writing under the pen name of JOSLIN FITZGERALD  I thought I would change my post up a little bit and write you a short story that goes like this…in it opening line.... 
 
Once-upon-a-Time.....
 
There was a little girl in buttons, bows, and playful curls, who spent all of her summertime’s living at a magical place called Cake-Lake. 
 
Merrily from the second the last school bell finished ringing, and the house in town was shut down, her memories circled around moving back to the lake on summer break. 
 
Therefore closing one door in reality, while opening up a window into fantasy….. everyday living somewhere in-between everything for the little girl was great.
 
And as she was having picnics everyday, while making sand castles on the ground,  running around after fireflies, daily she  enjoyed the enchanted waterfall sounds. 
 
Absolutely living in cabin number 3 playing, living, and eating home made ice cream, and amazing sweet cakes her life was delightful indeed .
 
That's why, every hour chasing fairies and fireflies she loved the sights she viewed, and the peace and quiet that she found there too. 
 
She furthermore adored the delightful sounds she heard, as the ducks squeaked and the singing crickets played peek-a-boo in the leaves of the old tall oak trees. 
 
Magically every summer hour searching for rainbows and day dreaming on the piers ledge, while making memories that kept her off of reality’s cliff’s edge....., was a mystic escape.
 
And  as she dreamed of what was yet to be....without her knowing what she was doing, she was searching for her Happily-Ever-After in her minds Secret Place.
 
So living in her fantasy she was patiently waiting every-day for her Dreams-to-Come-True after she left Cake-Lake. 
 
Yes Indeed that was a special story book time in her life, as the little girl was serenaded by bull frogs at night, while she spent her days making Water Lilly pad hats, fishing, and drinking milkshakes with her friends in her special place!

Sweetly day dreaming sitting next to the frogs on the log, while playing in the rain, walking barefoot feeling no pain, was just great! 
 
But sadly in her Summertime-Story everything changed. 
 
Because like everybody else in their life.....the nice, upset girl was forced to grow up.... as her Heart aged. 
 
That means, after seeing many things leaving, including her mother flying away, her daddy dying, and her sister lying.....the little girl had to say Goodbye to her great summer days. 
 
And as her childhood evaporated she likewise had to leave her great memories behind. Because like everybody else who watched childhood evaporate....lost in time she forgot how to play....
 
And as she forgot how to have fun underneath the sun, sadly her Happily-Ever-After seemed extremely far away…..
 
Bottom line. Once-Upon-a-Time….while crying her days away.....her peace of mind seemed like it was going to be very hard to find after she left Cake Lake's summertime waves ....
 
To be continued
 
So, now I am going to leave you cliff hanging waiting for more of the tale.
 
And tomorrow I will finish this Summertime-Story.
 
But in the meantime....I wonder. 
 
Have you ever felt the same way?
 
Have you ever had a perfect summer tale, connected to your sweet, flawless summer days evaporate? 
 
Have you ever wished that you had Not grown up and your childhood had Not been taken away? 
 
Then in making youthful memories and losing the same….have you ever sometimes prayed shore to shore that you could once more hunt fairies, chase fireflies and walk barefoot in the rain without pain? 
 
And here is another question for you as you wait for that answer today. 
 
Remembering as a child...... how you felt......Once-Upon-a-Time.... when you danced wild and happy in the wind…. are you constantly wondering....

Is it possible to ever be young and free again?
 
Well stay tuned, because in that new clue finding out how you can stay Eternally young forever....tomorrow finishing my brewing summertime story, I have some  more great news for you! 
 
Because Once-Upon-A-time… happens to everybody who has been and who still is looking to find their Happy-Ending underneath the sky of blue. 
 
That means, your Happily-Ever-After’s…. Start-of-the-Heart… has to begin with a Once-Upon-A-Time found with Jesus Christ..... before your dreams can come true  …..” Joslin Fitzgerald

Your Prayer of Salvation
 
Dear Jesus, I know I have done bad things in the past, and that I have done bad things today, and that I will continue to do bad things tomorrow as I am going along my way.  Yes that makes me a sinner, just like everyone else in the world every day, with all of the bad things I am doing and saying.
 
So, because I am a sinner I know I need a Savior....
 
Therefore my sins and my unhappiness are why I have come to you today, as I am silently praying, because I want to be eternally happy, and I need to be forever saved.
 
In saying that Jesus, I believe that you were born on Christmas Day.  I believe Jesus, that you lived a perfect life that is written down in the Bible to teach me what is wrong, and show me what is right. And I believe Jesus, in your love for me that you died on the Cross to save me from all of my sins day and night. Yes Jesus I believe you died, and defeated the grave as you arose from the dead on the third day. Yes I believe you are Alive forevermore and that you are living inside my heart and soul eternally night and day!
 
Thus in believing Jesus, you are the Son of God I am asking for your forgiveness for all my sins that I know, and those I do not know that I have committed, including the ones that I will continue to daily wallow in, as I claim in Your Eternal scriptural promise in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit that I am now going to heaven.
 
Yes I claim in my new faith this very Minute that I am saved, because you died for me on the Cross, and in your arising on the third day, I know I  will not go to my endless grave. In that statement that just saved my life Thank you Jesus, I am now whole since the Holy Spirit lives within my soul!
 
Therefore in this prayer I believe that I am born again into heavens sight, and in your Biblical Promise of salvation written in the scriptures I have received everlasting life! Thus as I am asking you to change my blind darkness to guiding light you are forever my Savior, Jesus Christ.
 
Amen
 
Absolutely I pray that you have accepted Jesus Christ as your eternal guiding light, and your Savior today. I know I may never meet you here on earth as we are roaming, but if you truly prayed your prayer, to Jesus requesting forgiveness of your sins, and asking for your salvation you are right now this second saved. And I will see you when we go Away back home!
