Bom Dia,  A happy greeting to you..

Today, while picking up a newspaper for my husband, I spied this colourful book. Bring Back the Bees by Paulette Bourgeois and Josee Bisaillon.  It was so eye catching that I asked to see it. Hello, it is a give away at Chapters Indigo.  It is Produced by Kids Can Press, and sponsored by Honey Nut Cheerios.

It has beautiful illustrations, rendered in watercolour, collage and digital

I am very interested in saving the bee population, and believe that more awareness is needed … therefore I am sharing this information with you.for more info. bringbackthe bees.ca

domingo, segunda feira

water colour 3.30

Sunday Monday – Happy start of the week everyone….

Bom dia…thought to start the week off with some colour.  this was a water-colour I started, it has advanced several steps since the picture, but.. that was the beginning or part of it anyway.  Blending, and marrying of different colours, adding texture, and different strokes applied with changing the brush. Sometimes it works, sometimes it is a surprise.

Life is Art, (PL Precept #1) how we decide on what steps we will take, to address challenges/opportunities, will dictate the outcome.  We can either accept what we “see” or take creative measures to embellish or completely change what “was”

PL Calendar -day 2- Be Forever Young and Seek New Challenges

The world is constantly in motion and never rests.  Keep your senses sharp and be ready to adapt to the ever-changing world.

HI. =^_^=   Wanted to show you a page from one of my art journals.  This picture so delighted me at the time, I couldn’t pass along the magazine or get rid of it.  Finally I started an Art Journal, or a Junk Journal… in it, I put in the various  ” art pieces” that have caught my attention.  This is one I wanted to use today, but… didn’t fit.  So adding it in a post script.

Life offers us so much that challengers our creativity, it is staggering.  I love it.

I accept that life isn’t always “fun” but it is powerful, it is an emotion that transcends words, happiness is LOVE  and LOVE is GOD.

Listen **    See **  Accept ***

PL calendar #24    Focus your “eyes” and “ears” towards the expression of others without any preconceived notions.  Then you will be able to see their true intentions.

Listen and See with Careful attention and Accept Each Other

PL Calendar #23   Appreciate Our Differences

Appreciate the colourful personalities of the people around you and enjoy their uniqueness to the fullest


Life’s journey is never a super highway, it is full of unexpected stops, and detours along the way.  Remember it is not the destination, but the journey itself that is rewarding.  When we are faced with the unexpected, stop and appreciate the diversion, it is  happening for a reason.  The details might not be clear to you at the time, but if we believe, and have faith, God/Universe will see us through. Love is unconditional.  Love sometimes is having to be different.  Let Go… Let God.

Appreciation

golden-chalice-flower-5s

Yesterday was the 21st, in PL, that is the day we do a special service of “Thanksgiving” and expressing our appreciation for the blessings we have received.

Yesterday my husband was taken to the hospital, I had called 911, and the situation warranted he go into hospital, and he was admitted.  The events started at least 24/48  hours prior to the 911 call.  Come last night I was tired, exhausted, and what I call blotto, I didn’t have the energy to really eat, but knew I had to eat.

In PL, we have a Precept, #7  Everything exists in Relativity, and Precept #11 Always be with God. I believe with all my “Being” that “God” is always with me.  When I prayed the night before on what to do, I was given a sign loud and clear, something happened that everything in me knew, I had to call 911.

When I sat depleted at the end of the day, too drained to do much else but sit and let my mind sort itself out… friends came through for me, my sister gave me a steadying voice and the church sent over   Japanese curry and rice (one of my favourites) this is a meal we all share after service on the 21st. Another friend had made homemade baked beans. The angel that brought the over is a dear and long time friend, who just sat with me and shared the quiet moments with me.  I fell asleep with the joyful love of friendship lulling me into a fitful sleep.

This morning my husband texted me.. his message warming my heart and a new day begins.  In PL we are taught to never lose faith, believe and live every moment of your life.  If there is pain, sadness, it is there because you have known true happiness, and you are feeling the other side of life.. but it reality it is all ONE.

There is no right with out left.  No yin, without yang.  When we live each day, with truth in our hearts.. there are no regrets… memories and lessons yes.. but no regrets.

Time to start another day.  All the best to you, and to all of my wonderful and thoughtful friends, near and far. I love you … each and every one of you.

Be creative, today is a fresh canvas.

being attentive

O estado de alerta entusiasma       Calendario PL  #15

Being attentive makes life more enjoyable

Seja algo trivial ou grandioso, viva dando atencao a todos os detalhes.  Isso gera bem-estar.

Live life paying careful attention to every detail, be it big or small.  By doing so, you will be able to experience the subtle joy of things.

Some dreams never get completed

others fade into distant memories

when we live in the now

every moment is a dream come true
