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

Today this moment

Treasure each moment in time. Life is a continuation of “NOW” Treasure each and every moment as it comes, so that you can live your life as fully as possible without regrets.

I stood on an old solid wood bridge that spanned this little gurgling waterway.

One direction led past the old homestead, and the other, wandered down into the countryside.

In the moment of my being there, I got to experience both sides, of the ONE body of water as it moved along.. gurgling happily as it tripped over the rocks and valleys of its bed.

Each moment of our lives, we too are captured by the Universe in our daily execution of our daily “living”.

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.

walk with me..

Welcome another day

walk with me, stay by my side

for I am here for you

a silent whisper of energy

traveling by your side

there is no right or wrong way

together we will stay, always side by side

like the pine and the oak

we share the “WAY”

it is in our togetherness

that the Universe will be sowed with love

and a lasting JOY of PEACE.

Love begins within

Our roots entwined

bound forever in time.

I Love YOU

Q

Live today with LOVE in your heart, it is a HAPPY day! Live the PL WAY!

a smile a day!

makes for a happier healthier day

Good morning everyone. Came across this picture of my Porti*, Canaille was my little heart throb. I miss her every day. She was one of these personalities that could always bring on a smile Even on the grumpiest of days, she had a winning way. (* Portuguese Water Dog)

We are starting a new month. Let’s make sure we bring our happy face to share with others, every single day.

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

Greet everyone with a smile. The basic building block of human relationships is greeting one another. Be the first to greet others cheerfully.

dirt pile

Actually it was the dirt pile that first caught my attention. It just seemed to be interesting, as I got closer I found out why =^_^=

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

Friday 21st.

Here we are, another Friday, today tho’ is not just another Friday it is the 21st. for PL members this is the day we attend church for a special Thanksgiving day service. Reminder this evening 7 pm. Eastern Daylight Time.

Your feelings of appreciation become real when you express them. Express your feelings of appreciation by actually saying, “Thank you” out loud or by doing something to show how you feel. Not only will the person you are thanking feel good, but you will too, leading to better things in the future.

In life, the changes we live don’t always show up, like it did in the above pictures. (of my avatar China) But the happenings around us, can impact us, emotionally, and mentally in ways that do leave us with a profound sense of change, and we are left to struggle and relearn to find our “balance”

I used China as an example today, because, it took months, weeks and days, for me to realize that visually she needed a make-over. Then it took hours and hours of trials and redos.. for me to get this far. I have to give a huge shout out to Truth Wizardly who when I asked for help in the chat group came to my rescue. (Truth is a blogger for various designers in SL Glam affaire and Lelutka being two of them)(see him Flickr)

When we make a change in our lives or have one thrust on us, the adjustments take time, and they require patience. In the case of upgrading my avatar, like buying a new car, everything is new and technology has moved on from what you had previously. there is a learning curve.

If we live with appreciation in our hearts, and accept that some of our “realities” will incur deep emotion and require “letting go” With acceptance, and the desire to move on.. We will grow with the changes in our lives… to become even more of the “person” we hope/strive to be.

Ian’s picture is pure “magic” … thank you Ian!

stump sculpture.

I love you Babe!

The back of the stump appealed to me the most. I walked around several times, taking my time, wanting to experience every dimension of what I was seeing. It sat on a vacant lot that had been for sale, I saw a sold sign on the real estate sign I hope that doesn’t mean that the stump will disappear.

I hope in clicking on it, you can see how much darker the backside is. Does it look like man had a hand in shaping it.. or was it cut down, and then left for nature to do her thing. ???

There are times in life when I think I feel like that stump. I have no reason for being where I am, except it is where I have ended up… and while life goes on around me.. my physical appearance changes, but inside, I’m like a piece of wood. 1000 stories to tell, and no way to have them heard.

I pulled out a calendar .. like I would the I Ching, closed my eyes and flipped to a page.

Always live with a kind and generous heart. Show love and embrace others’ good points, and be willing to overlook their faults. One who has a generous heart can live a fulfilled life.

Thunder and tornado warnings here.. gosh.. excitement never ends. Make the twilight hours count… re-energize… absorb the silver moonbeams as they criss cross the skies. the galaxy is alive…

anyone else see the “lovers”

a meditation in green

I started out for one place, was in the wrong lane, ended up in a totally different direction, and smack dab to the entrance (parking lot) for the Larose Forest.

Was I dressed for a hike through the forest trails, no. Being the trouper I am, I decided to hike down one of the trails to get some pictures. Hot, was it hot… yes, but walking along under the canopy of the trees, there was a breeze.

My day was planned out for me by a higher being. I would not have started out to visit the Larose Forest on a day when temperatures were going to give us a scorching heat, with a high humidity factor thrown in. But I end the day with gratitude in my heart. I had a lovely day, it was a productive day, the myriads of greens, and earthy tones, was a palette that not only pleased the eye, but soothed a weary “soul”

Live in the moment. Whether you are walking, having a conversation, or having a good time, it is important to be fully engaged. Remember to live in the “now”

Perfect Liberty 2017.10

I will live with a mind of appreciation toward others and things.

Perfect Liberty Principle #3

Good night everyone. May your night and dreams be filled with a heartfelt joy that has you drifting into a peaceful sleep with a smile on your face, and gratitude in your heart.
