my attempt this evening at tea biscuits

raw white honey? butter? crab meat with garlic mayo? creamy almond butter? First time to use my made in Italy pan I found at the thrift the other day. You can’t see it, but the outer pan is lazy baby blue.

Be thankful at the beginning and end of each day. Each and every one 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.

I disagreed

hello there.. =^_^=

I’m usually easy going, I do have an opinion, when asked, I have always done my best to be honest with my reply, if I disagree, I tend to soften my stand, unless it is something that really is important.

Today I was asked about whether or not our church should open for Thanksgiving service on the 21st. Contrary to what was said by someone who does not come to the church at all, I feel it should be open for those who would like to attend, observing of course, social distancing, and the wearing of a face mask. Because our members are scattered all across Canada, the actual numbers who can or would physically attend has always been low in number.

Those of us who find comfort in being in the church, some have been with the church since it was built. (the new one).. It is our home, our sanctuary . PL has always been unique in how it offers personal guidance responding to problems of our every day lives.

It is through consultations given by PL ministers, the personal guidance tailored to the individual character and situation that makes PL such a bonding experience.

That the question even needed to be asked.. (.. WOW..) Needless to say, I disagreed with the statement that we stay closed, … and I spoke out. These past weeks have made me realize, that too often, doors are closed, and the support that should be available is withdrawn.

Ministers are front line care givers. Not only the physical body needs to be addressed, now more then ever, we need to feed, heal and nurture our spirits.

tapestry of textures

off a busy road going east and west
natural textures seen along the highway

It is only natural that you are different from others. Each of us has our own way of thinking and our own individual lifestyle. That is what makes life interesting.

Life is Art – Oyashikiri

will the circle be

broken, or … roll into eternity
once there was a strong bond
that with years of wear and tear compressed into
a band of steel so tight,so unyielding that
when time began to erode the composition
the reason for its existence started to fade
only the inner knowledge that once the fire that had forged that band
was slipping away. Soon when the dust returns to dust
the band of gold that once shone with meaning
will disappear .. into the eternity of time and space
and we will no longer be, you will be free
you always were you know
cages are created by the human mind
sadly when love is caged, it dies.
be free, love again
this time .. it will be forever. Q

Be thankful to your parents and to your ancestors. You are here today because the “torch of life” has been continuously passed down. always remember to be thankful.

Stick with it

Don’t give up! Stick with it, as many times as it takes

Sometimes you want to just throw in the towel and say, “I give up” but that’s the time for you to dig deep and push through. Your sincere effort will invite a good outcome.

there are many paths we can take, choose wisely

We must not, in trying to think about how we can make a big difference, ignore the small daily differences we can make which, over time, add up to big differences that we often cannot foresee.

May 2

The early morning sunlight was just out of reach as we rounded the bend. The soothing sound of the spring run off making its way to the river is a melody I hope will never end.

With the morning stretching into noon, I thought of turning around, but somehow, I found myself lingering. You’ve fed my need for make believe & replaced my dreams with reality. This has opened up my senses to the awakening energies in the earth, the life force in the trees, and the texture and shapes of all of nature’s bounty.

We met and simply never parted, it was forever from the start. This is written in the wind, and sung by the sparkling waters of the stream.. Harmonizing in the background, is the sweet songs of the many birds who live in this little bit of paradise.

Here on planet earth is an oasis of love that is repeated over and over again in different vignettes all over the world. -Q-

Always think that “everything will work out” When you allow yourself to be pessimistic, your thought and actions become sluggish. Approach everything optimistically without hesitating.

looking for birds

Trekking through an area of land that until very recently was unknown to me, it is only some 15 minutes from me.. Yes I’ve been driving by for years, and never knew his gem existed. Took a serious world ” happening” to get me to actually get out of my car and explore the area. Also.. to give credit where it is due, it took my dog taking off on me out of the car .. and heading down one of the trails with an urgent need to explore.

I took him back there today, but on a leash. He was not impressed. The little missy, balked at going out, so .. guess what.. she got left at home. Too bad so sad, was not going to insist. When Velcro and I came home, we were both full of the most wonderful tantalizing smells. Don’t know how they communicate, but they certainly seemed to be having a good exchange of information ..

About the birds, I saw flashes of colour here and there, and birds darting from one tree to another.. but was unable to get one to light long enough for me to grab a picture. What I can tell you is that right now the woods are filled with the chirping and singing of the many species that are taking temporary accommodation in the area as they migrate through Ontario.

Life is really an adventure, some chapters are easy reading, and others are jam packed with excitement, tension, and the unknown.. Whatever chapter you are in, you have to know.. that the next page will bring something new into your awareness, it will be forever unfolding.

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.
