Time to reflect on all that has been happening in our lives. How far we have come since the year began. In PL, we give special thanks for all of life’s lessons, each moment is a new experience and a new awareness.
We, members, humbly express our appreciation to God and to Oshieoya-sama for the blessings of the past month and sincerely ask to be guided and protected by the grace of Oyashikiri in the coming month. We renew our determination to follow and practice our individual Miosie (Divine instructions) and to wholeheartedly share our faith with others.
Perfect Liberty -Thanksgiving service 21st each month.
My earlier wordless blog, was a fun snapshot I had, that simply had me smiling at the funny things we do when we are young and not caught up in being “prim” “proper” “lady like” and all the other wordings adults have to reign in the innocent playfulness we have as children.
As we mature, and develop, we soon discover that part of us needs to be held back, or kept in the shadows, because “it” may not be appreciated by others. However, we are who we are, and it is not healthy to always try to supress our “child” or “drama”.. drama is not always negative, it is about emoting and expressing feelings.
When we live doing our best not to hurt or slight others taking care to be mindful, avoiding arrogance and conceit, then the simple pleasure of pure expression, can be fun… silly, and inane. When was the last time you made a silly face? Just for fun
To see the snapshot, you will have to visit the first blog of the day =^_^=
Yes there were better pictures, but I wanted to share my special friends (family) from yesterday. These two little girls, are such a joy and Eartha, well she and I have been friends for years.. we are like simply “sisters” from start to finish.
I can’t recall the last time I did a siss boom bah and a chika latta, chika latta chika latta Boom, cheer in a public parking lot before. It was great fun, I didn’t even remember that I knew the cheer. But here I was out in the parking lot showing little A, the footwork, jump and cheer in the parking lot. My older niece is grade A gymnast, she had gone on with her Mother to another location, or she would have outshone our jumps for sure.
Letting go, enjoying the day, and today still enjoying the glow. there is something very special about sharing time with those we love. don’t squander your days, include your family and friends when you can.. Thanksgiving is for everyday.
Good morning everyone… the season is on us. Songs on the radio, a special channel devoted to the music of the season. On the telly we have the Hallmark channel already showing their “feel good” movies. What about us, you and me, the marketing departments, the promotions, adverts, they are all prepared. In the States I guess it will happen real quick like once their Thanksgiving is over. No I don’t usually speak this way, (real quick like) but I liked the sound. The keys flowed with a rhythm.
It is early, but the snow machines are out, I can hear them rolling down the sidewalk. In some way, form or another, we have started to think of how we will portion ourselves up to be with friends, family and loved ones. On a personal level, we are not companies that can delegate and assign different tasks to various departments to reach a goal, we have to do it for ourselves.
In a conversation recently it was suggest that I be the adult and this meant in the situation we were discussing, that I should be more responsible myself. and take action accordingly. Had me wondering just what it means to be an adult. We (as parents) were the ones rushing around getting gifts, hiding them all to make “others” (we hoped) happy an surprised on Xmas day. But……………………. what about us, the individual, what is it about being an adult that sets us apart, from the ones who have dreams and wishes. Why are we responsible for making others happy.
In PL we believe that each and everyone of us, is responsible for US. If I cannot make myself happy, how can I expect someone else to make me happy. Be true to one’s SELF. We live a moment and we move on. Also we want others to be happy and we do our best to open our hearts to them. That is why we pray for the guidance to enable us to be a “good person” and to do our best for others and society. Adult or otherwise*, these are the teachings of PL.
PL Principle 1 (of of 21) I will live paying careful attention, putting Makoto (sincerity) into all I say and do.
Good Thursday morning all. Three of the pictures were taken by a friend in Michigan, he is a very kind and talented individual, he knows of my “passion” for old buildings and doors”. The bright Xmas door is my latest find from the Dollar Tree (stores located here and in the States)
We had a great meeting yesterday at the Doll Club, even managed to raise some money for the House of Lazarus in Mountain. (food bank) Remember to give when you can.
Always live life with a smile, life is no longer a trial when we believe.
Being considerate of others is just as important as what works for you. Always be mindful of the situations of others not just your own. To have a good relationship with those around you always think of what is important to them too.
The early morning light, was not going to get any brighter, yet I found the sight of the single tree still standing with its crisp mantle of dusty orange leaves, appealing.
I found today to be beautiful, it was moody, it was stirring, most of all it was full of expressions waiting to be discovered.
Appreciate the Makoto (sincerity) of the people who came before you. Everything we have today was built upon the hard work of our ancestors and the people who came before us. Always remember to be thankful and humble and continue to build on their past successes.

The 11th. Ancestors day ceremony, is one of my favourites, today’s service was powerful
Voices in unison we prayed, heads bent in reverence and respect for our loved ones, and those who came forward and went into battle to keep us all free from those who would do us harm.
Where-ever you are in the world, please continue to pray for world peace.
