I am filled with the unquenchable joy of Spirit! There is a joy I feel that comes and goes in response to what is happening around me. Yet I have a joy that is beyond what I feel as a response to people and circumstance. The spirit of God within me is my source of true joy.
In the presence of divine joy, I am encouraged to be aware of the love peace and strength that are in me, in others and throughout the world.Daily Word, 209, Psalm 92:4
Each person’s peace leads to world peace. First of all, you have to be happy. that happiness will spread and be the foundation of World Peace.Perfect Liberty 2021.1
Such is true in life also. When faced with a problem that seems to be a constant sadness and weighs heavy on your heart… what do you do. I pray. I pray for guidance that my actions will be the right ones..
Let’s respond clearly. giving a proper response shows consideration towards others.Perfect Liberty 2021.28

What a joy filled day. A friend came by, she drove, we went to Arnprior, I got to just sit, enjoy and take in the beautiful scenery along the way. There are no words for how much I enjoyed visiting the retreat we went to. There was a private beach that I got to visit and bask in the sunshine while she conducted her business. How far out fantastic was that! No one around, just me and the waves gently rolling into shore. Heavenly!
I will admit the climb back up from the beach to the retreat area.. tested my stamina. Going down was easy, the climb back up, LOL its called exercise….
The further you walk into the quiet of the woodlands, the more serene it gets. There are places along the way where one can sit a spell. I have found a fallen tree to sit on, where I can hear the sound of a babbling stream, as it merrily makes its way through the dense forest carpet, some days I m may hear another traveler off in the distance, but that is rare. (week-ends it might be different)
Each season brings a different decorated theme. Each passing day there is something new to discover. the landscape is forever changing.
Please let me explain that the quiet while in the woods is not without sound. There is a constant singing and chatter of the birds and other residents of the forest community. Their voices blend to create a soothing lullaby to the ears of an urban traveler.
In PL when we are faced with a problem, we work at resolving the “issue” by looking at how we, ourselves can change , what we need to do, to change our thinking to redirect negative energies towards more positive vibes. For me, my daily time spent in or near the woodlands helps me to focus, to listen to my inner voice. To replay and consider conversations with my friends. God (Nature) will always provide. We have to learn how to “hear” “be receptive” mostly, we have to “let go and let God”
There are 21 Precepts in the PL Philosophy, each one is a guide, or a “key” to help us through our journey. The first one, Life is Art.… is my mantra…. I am the artist, and life is my canvas.
PL Precept # 2… To live is to express one’s self.
I share my world with you, why, because, I see and feel love when I am in Nature, and we all need love.
Today was a day for reflection.
the quiet of the day, the slow walk along the path, the vegetation, the birds, the activity of the wee ones in the woods, a blessing.
This is a church that I’ve passed for years.. I’ve always wanted to take the side road to visit it. the other day I did. Isn’t it a beauty,

I was shown a book yesterday that someone crafted … I had never seen this done before.. its a book that someone has carefully folded (the pages) .. to say I LOVE YOU …
The time, the patience, my reaction was a genuine WOW.
Express your appreciation with enthusiasm. Appreciation is the driving force for progress and development.Perfect Liberty 2021.21
>> perhaps we make a lot of noise, because we don’t want to listen <<
>> happiness is a state of mind that I enjoy, I like being happy… <<
It’s okay! God is watching over you. Things turn out for the best. Don’t be captured by momentary troubles, but continue doing everything with sincerity.Perfect Liberty 2021.19
Each moment is a new beginning. ” this is where the changes take place, right here and right now, in your own mind!” Only YOU can heal your life!
Now is always the start of something new. Leave the past in the past. What is important is “What you are going to do now”. Using the present as a starting point, move forward on a path towards improvement and progress.Perfect Liberty 2014.24

Wandering the back roads with a friend is always so much more rewarding then when on my own. Today I made the trip to South Mountain with food for the food bank, after the “task” was done, we were free to wander where-ever the car took us
The quiet vistas we saw along the way, were soothing to the eyes. Living in the city where we are constantly being surrounded by the sounds of a vibrant growing urban sprawl, it was a delightful interlude. No sirens, no heavy traffic, tall buildings, over crowded streets, just the open roads, quaint little towns and wonderful farmland with acres of fields of soon to be table ready produce.
It was fun to discover new places of interest, and to learn more about our “selves” as we shared stories and memories of past adventures.
Remember today’s calendar ,PL day 12… “let’s begin today with a smile”.. I did and it continued through out the day. Friendships are so important. If you have not reached out in awhile to a friend you’ve missed.. now’s the time.. Most of us have had our vaccines, regulations are being relaxed, we still have to be prudent and take care. But… finally we can spend some quality time with a friend in person… What a joy!
How was your day? I was out door collecting today… can’t wait till Thursday!
We did stop at a fresh vegetable stand… we both took advantage of the freshly picked green beans! Yummy.. also got some young fresh garlic.. double yum!
