Thursday Doors

The road was like a ribbon hugging the landscape .. the river on one side and the base of the Laurentians off to the North… It was breathtaking, I often wanted to stop, but due to the narrow old highway, with only the two lanes.. it was impossible, the solid no passing lines were very prominent. When I did dare stop, it was with emergency flashers and a quick scuttle out of the car .. off to the side of the road, and then back in to move out of the way of the endless parade of cars and trucks.

The clear sky held out for me.. the forecast had called for clouds, but Mother Nature was generous with her sunny disposition. Click on the pictures to get a better view of the scenery. =^_^=… The array of fall colour is well on its way… especially when I was well into the Laurentian tourist areas.

Good or Bad it is your mirror. Sincere expressions invite good results, but insincere expressions can lead to unexpected trouble.

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

growing wild in abundance!

Not all plants are exotic beauties, or graceful ballerinas….Some simply grow happily in the sunshine, drinking up the rain, and enjoying life because it is such a joy to do so. They provide diversity for all the woodland creatures, and to those of us who visit, they are there to welcome us as we arrive, and bid us adieu as we leave.

Open up Opportunities by being proactive. Opportunities don’t just come knocking on the foot. Use your enthusiasm and energy to bring good fortune your way.

When you think “I’ve got it” think again, It is so easy to misinterpret the situation and jump to conclusions. Always have a humble attitude and double check to make sure.

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.

Always be cheerful, happy and good humored. When you make an effort to be cheerful and happy, you will naturally begin to feel that way.

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.

Ancestors Day service is tomorrow, September 11. at 10 a.m.

Rocks

I have a soft spot for rocks. There is something about a rock that seems to be so attractive and mysterious at the same time. I have never come across a rock that I have not enjoyed meeting. They come in all shapes and sizes, for sure some are more valuable than others.. depending on their composition… For me.. they are story tellers. Each one has its very own unique story line. This group with the water as a backdrop appealed to me, I studied it for some time. There was a seating area near by…

is this not inviting?

I dared not sit .. I wanted to badly, but I was not dressed for the brisk freshness of the early morning. It will be my “destination” on another day. the above rocks are just off to the left of this wonderful chair. I picture myself there on one of our famous “indian summer” days lazily allowing the day to wash over me.

Treat today as if it your first time around. Just because you succeeded in the past ti doesn’t guarantee that things will go as smoothly this time around. Every day, each moment, there is a new challenge to face.

I will get to see the rocks in a different light, I will be curious to see if the same images appear. Enjoy the coming week… Sleep sweet dreams this evening, and if it is morning when you read this.. have a stunning day!

hidden gem

play of shadows and sunlight bring natural beauty to light

Having a clear image is the first step towards accomplishing your goals. What do you want to accomplish and by when? The more concrete your thoughts, the easier it is to make it a reality.

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.

Perfect Liberty 2020.2

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