Today in PL, we celebrate (the 1st of every month) with a special ceremony with a Day of Peace ceremony. Through the world peace ceremony, we pray for World Peace and dedicate ourselves to live as peaceful human beings in our own worlds, which include our home, school, work and community.
Service is at 10 a.m. for those unable to join us at the church, please say a silent prayer wherever you are focused on peace for all.
World peace starts from Peace at Home. Your life is a part of the bigger world beyond you. Start with your surroundings and spread peace in the world around you.

Tomorrow, December 2nd, there will be an evening ceremony as we joyfully celebrate Oshieoya-sama’s birthday. 7 PM.
we sometimes don’t realize just how “busy” we are… or how “noisy” our mind can be.
I awoke to the white sounds around me, gentle, steady, familiar, yet constant and comforting. Still, only in sleep do they disappear from my conscious awareness, to be replaced by the chatter of unknown voices, electronic media, and traffic during the day when I am away from home.
Every man takes the limits of his own field of vision for the limits of the word
The search for God is the riding around on an ox, hunting for the ox.
Today I will think about what is important in my life. Beginning with gratitude for now. YOU are part of my now, for this I am so blessed.
There will always be a way. if you persist and be creative without giving up, you will find solutions that you had not considered before.

I have gone many times to Merrickville, but it was only on my last visit there that I came across this giraffe. I stood for some time looking at it, before I walked down the street to get a better look. Years ago I had attempted to do some sculptures with chicken wire, I know the effort and time I had to put in to accomplish what results I did get.
This tall imposing giraffe was a marvel to me. There were not that many people about that day, so I was able to stand and enjoy him/her for some time. The posture, the face, the use of the stones all came together so beautifully. I’m sorry now that I did not attempt to find the owner and perhaps the creator…. (note to self.. a revisit soon or when weather permits and the season is right.)
Begin each day with a renewed sense of appreciation. Always remember that you are here today thanks to God, and thanks to the many people around you. Let’s make each day meaningful by starting out with a feeling of gratitude.
Be a person who can recognize the sincerity of others. When you put your whole heart into things you will be able to notice the sincere acts of others in the subtle things they do, and appreciate them that much more.

Last night when I was clearing the deck it was light and fluffy. This morning, you can see it is heavy and wet. I also note the difference, top picture taken with my Canon (Power shot SX730HS) and this morning’s offerings were taken with my Huawei P20… I love my Huawei =^_^=
Have a splendid day everyone! Whatever comes your way.. I know you will shine through it all.
Life presents us with challenges/opportunities every day. Sometimes we hear the call, when we do, we can take it on, or do our best to ignore it. However, the top photo is what happens to the clutter in our minds, when we try to push aside, or put off, something that needs our attention.
What are we back to….. choices.. yup.. somethings won’t go away on their own, WE have to take a hard look, and put an action plan in place. Or it will become overwhelming.
Strive to overcome obstacles by changing your mind-frame. Things don’t always go as planned. When that happens, try changing how you look at the situation or how you are doing things. The outcome is in your hands.
It is important to be assertive, but maintaining harmony is just as important. Say what is on your mind clearly, but don’t be overly attached to your views. Respect the points of view of others and always seek to find a happy medium,

I see personalities in each tree I meet. Depending on the time of day, where the sun is, how the shadows play on their textured bark…I’ve never come across a tree that I haven’t liked. Humans are the same. =^_^= some are easier to spend time with then others…. but everyone has the potential of being someone you can learn from, share with, and yes, even be friends with.
Learn to be a person who welcomes change, appreciate the journey you’ve been on. Life is to be lived.
