No one can take away the joy you get from putting by our whole heart into something. The joy you feel when you’ve put your all into something is your and yours alone. Nobody can take that away from you.

the Fence

The fence stood for years, aging with time,

taken for granted it stood outside, rain or shine

Finally someone took notice and made the time

To clean away the years grime and give it back

its sense of pride The fence is faithful in its duty

No one can come on the grounds without being greeted

and guided along the church grounds.

it does have a purpose, it wasn’t built just to be pretty.

Showing appreciation, is not a waste of time

our fence is now once more standing proud

always on guard, ready to serve for years to come

Please notice next time you come around

the church fence will bid you welcome and adieau.

the wood is smiling, it really is.. =^_^=

Q

Use things for what they are meant for. Everything has a purpose. Let’s use things to their fullest potential.

A shout out to Rev. Eugene, it was a lot of work!

Happiness is

nature’s natural beauty

It had started to rain, small droplets fell on my windshield, I was prepared for a downpour.. but.. no, the rain stopped.. I looked over to my right and saw the tall grass and the trees with their fall colour, and couldn’t resist.. I pulled over and got out. Traffic be darned. As if on cue, the traffic trickled to zero. I was able to stand there, admire the beauty… and take in the moment without the sound of tires on pavement.

Moodie is a busy road but I was blessed with a quiet few moments, and for that I was truly grateful… it was such a refreshing and rather intoxicating moment. I had been having a busy morning, productive, but busy .. the few moments of solitude, surrounded with natures beauty… was energizing.

Let’s find the joy in everything. Are you looking for things to complain about? Let’s change our perspective and live a cheerful and joyful life.

different angle

In life this is exactly how it IS. My picture earlier showed the above formation from a different angle. If you and I stand side by side, and look at the same pile of rocks.. we will each see something different. Yet we will be together, looking at the very same sculpture. We will share that moment in time, but our memories will be different. Our interpretation of the moment will be unique. You and I… being individuals, how we interact will determine our compatibility. That is why sharing and being open to another point of view or understanding is so important. We need not agree, but at least we “listen” and are open to “possibilities”

Live today filled with enthusiasm. Life is an accumulation of the efforts you make, day by day. Live keeping in mind that “today” only comes once and live your precious life to the fullest.

gratitude

Be thankful at the beginning and end of each day. Each and everyone of your actions can inspire peace within your family, your community and the world around you. This peace will eventually help lead to world peace.

Thanksgiving service is at 7 PM. this evening 21st. If unable to attend, please take a moment at that time, to say “thank you” for all the blessings in your life.

Love is…

cherishing all that touches our lives.

In celebrating life today, I give special thanks to all of my friends, family and people I meet everyday for making this world such a unique and wonderful place. Recently said goodbye to a very special woman, altho’ have /had never met her personally, I know her son. Knowing him has brought new dimension into my life. Our friends do this, they bring us face to face with our own vulnerability and our coping mechanisms.

They are there for us when we didn’t even realize that we so needed them. Life would be empty without the “family” of friends and acquaintances that touch our lives regularly. May all the richness and blessings you share with others, return to you 100 million fold.

my babies at the beach yesterday

Had the beach to ourselves, I made time to sit and pray. I reflected on my last year, and my coming year, my friends, how my life has changed, and where life is taking me. I am grateful to each and everyone of you. The interactions differ but the one constant is LOVE.

Love is endless… it is what will unify the world and bring PEACE

Give it your best

If you’re going to do it, give it your best effort. your actions will be dulled if you worry too much about the outcome. Once you decide on a course of action, don’t hesitate to complete your task.

A cheerful smile and expression makes everyone around you happy. When you do everything with a smile, not only you but the people around you will feel good. Always remember to put on a happy face.

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.

Shadows play a very important part in our lives.There is always a shadow to be seen lingering, =^_^=

shadow box by a creative and talented friend,

Sumac

Sumac is a beautiful plant, I tried to grow it once, it is hardy in our area, however it is also very aggressive. I thought it would be nice in an area of the property, but soon had to start digging it out. It grew and grew and grew.. all over… Everywhere!

In other areas of the world Sumac is cultivated and used as a herb, spice, tea, it is considered to have many health benefits as well. From my past experience with it.. I now enjoy it when I go on walks, or come across it in my travels while hiking.. The desire to have it in my personal space, has long gone.

My experience with the Sumac is much like some of my other “encounters/experiences” while progressing along on this road of “life” Some experiences I explored and moved on.. and others I have retained in my “memory bank” and bring out from time to time to reflect on how the experience enriched my life.

Begin your day with appreciation. Welcome each new day with renewed appreciation, and step forward with a feeling of World Peace in your heart.
