The hidden door

If not for the little touch of red on the latch, I would have missed this door. I did include this door in another blog it was among other doors, and thought it deserved a feature of its own.

There are days when I want to blend in and disappear. Yes it happens to me, and I suspect each one of us at some time has had that feeling.. Where you just want the world to keep rolling along, so you can catch your breath, or simply veg.

Instead of worrying do something about it. It doesn’t help to over think situations such as “what if this happens?” or “Things might up that way” Instead be proactive and change how you see and do things in each situation.

Perfect Liberty 3 2019

Sine my husband’s passing have found it very difficult to do some of the things that need doing. example. Going upstairs to his offices and going through paperwork. Clearing out furniture and objects has not been a problem, yet for some reason, the filing cabinets have been like the door above, I don’t seem them. If I do, I walk right by.

There are times in life, when we have to “see” the issue, and then do something about it. In my case I have asked for help. And today, I will go to church and pray, giving thanks for my blessings, and express my gratitude that I have friends to turn to, and of course, I KNOW that PL Precept # 11 Always be with God. God is always with me.

A friend passed on the other day, massive stroke, one day he was walking in the sunshine between tall trees on one of his favourite walking trails with a friend, the next day he was gone. He was liked by his friends because he always said, he was poor in material things, but had an abundance of riches spiritually and in his friendships. Caring, gentle and understanding, he will be missed by all who knew him.

Another Saturday =^_^=

How many Saturdays can one have in a week. Obviously I can. When you are retired anything is possible.

Look at the marvelous day we had. The colour palette was subtle and vibrant at the same time. Truly amazing to be out in the majesty of the day.

Today being the 21st of the month we will be celebrating Thanksgiving with our PL service at 7 PM. Today’s calendar message..

Let’s be thankful for everything we have right now “Now” is an accumulation of every moment leading up to it, and everything that continues to progress and develop to become”now”. Be Thankful for everything.

Please take a moment in silent prayer today for loved ones who have done their time on earth, and are now going “home”…. Thank you.

prepping

Before working in a journal, the pages have to be prepped.  Especially since I am a mixed media artist.  I use different medium to work on the pages.  I have had so many projects to work on the past while that I have lost track of time.  I simply spend hours in the studio.  This meant, pushing the Xmas cards to the back of the burner, while I prep* pages to work on them.

*work on the pages – doing backgrounds and then priming them with a Gesso that seals the page so the inks or paints won’t bleed when I begin working on them.

Life is the same. We commit to something then before we are done, something else comes up and we juggle. Choices pop up and we have to decide what is the best way to proceed.  I reasoned that Xmas isn’t till December, BUT. I need to turn them in before the fall, so that the agencies can do what they need to do.

Am I procrastinating when I start something else before I finish another project?  The PL Calendar for day 23 ( I know we are not where near the 23rd) ” Once you have set out to do something, it is your job. ” Job? I am retired !!! Then it goes on to say, Once you have accepted a task, don’t make any excuses, continue the job until the very end and make sure the outcome is something you can truly be proud of.

Written words and philosophies can be so confusing at times.  anyone want to put in some ideas.views, give me something to ponder???

Winks at all her readers/friends…..honestly, I really am interested.  Yes doing this blog this evening is a stalling tactic. =^_^=

Reminder  Sunday, (August 11) service is at 10 a.m.  we will be doing the Ancestors’ Day ceremony.  See you all there!

Spaces, there is always a place, just right for meditation

find a space, where you can sit, reflect and contemplate,

BE your own best friend, LOVE will never end.

The Universe is everywhere,

there is no where you can BE without being part of the Universe

.. find a place, …. meditate

start today, make time for YOU every day.

Thursday doors

Good Morning, these are the doors I found yesterday in my travels. No concrete cement sidewalks, no asphalt driveways, open space and  blue skies were the order of the day.

PL Calendar day 25 –   Pay Careful Attention without Overly Straining yourself or Taking things too lightly

Having the right amount of tension in your life allows you to notice many things, and that will help you to better express yourself.
