Bom dia!!!!

I turned a corner and voila! The contrasts and the beauty of the sky above were too much.  I pulled over and dug out “old faithful” (Huawei)

A new day, a new month, how wonderful !  Sunday too, service at 10:00  see you all in prayer.

PL calendar day 1      Always live with world peace in your heart

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.

Love and blessings in my heart for each and every one of you.  To you with cameras who share “captures”, a special thank you of appreciation to your talents and the cameras you use.  Appreciate all in life.

lessons – PEACE

lakeshore nick

Growing up, I remember my Mother collecting the tools she would need when she retired.  She was determined she would weave.  She also sewed, growing up in the early years before Father passed away, Mother made our clothes, pretty dresses, frocks with smocking, we were little charmers.

Upstairs she stowed her treasures, materials for sewing, wool for knitting, and the materials she would weave with.  We had boxes and boxes stored for that time when she would retire and spend her time lazily doing the things she loved.  Did I tell you she painted too.   Was a creative lady my Mother was.

When she finally did retire from her years in a Government office, away from her officer, desk and responsibilities there, guess what, she dove into her volunteering with a non profit group managing their business affairs.  She was part of a group of ladies who felt more needed to be done for seniors on low income,  They did what needed doing to have an apartment built to meet their goals.

Mother managed the building, did all that needed doing to keep it afloat. Went to meetings, volunteered with other groups, for other needs she felt were not being fully addressed.  Drove seniors for appointments, opened a tuck shop in the building she and the others in her group had now enlarged on ….She was part of Meals on Wheels.

All this to say, she never did her weaving, her sewing interested faded away, She did knit and crochet at night while she rested in front of the telly, but that was for babies in the home for unwed Mothers, blankets for the hospitals, you name it.. Mother had her hand in it.  If it was to help others, she was there with a helping hand.

She outlived most of her friends, (close ones) and others who she had know  over the years, were now, like her, too frail, age had slowed them all down.

We all do our best to live each day as best we can. If my Mother had any regrets, she never spoke of them.  My Mother and her friends were of a generation that grow up with World wars 1 and 2, they knew about scrimping, saving, and making do.  They also knew how fragile a life can be.

PL calendar day 31    Someone who is mentally prepared is strong.

Even when things look grim, if you take on the situation with determination, you will be able to make a fresh start with a positive outlook.

World peace is essential if we are to give hope to the next generation.  Love, caring, and understanding, begin within ourSelves.

contentment

leon aug 16

A day at the beach with your favourite people.  Then a sound sleep at the end of the sofa while your human takes a nap.

In PL we learn to appreciate life, not only humans in the world with us, all living beings, and  the material objects that make our lives more comfortable.  Appreciation, respect  are the natural fibres of/in our lives that bring contentment.

PL Principle #3  I will live with a mind of appreciation towards others and things.

Happy Saturday, may it be a productive one for you.

Finally she gets to rest, and the boys want to play.  Will she give in, or chase them away? Choices, there is no getting away, they are part of every day!

PL Calendar day  27    Let’s interact proactively with an every changing society.

Society is always rapidly changing with the times.  Keep your eyes and mind in tune with these changes and learn to deal with them proactively.

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.

what happens when

pl parking lot

you are being careless or overconfident ..

Even though you may have put your best effort into doing something you still may have made mistakes.  that is why it is important to always work with a prayerful mind.

Good morning dear friends,

Our surroundings play such an important part in our lives, yet, too often we put off what needs attention, or doing, till ????

I admit to having done just that thee past months, and now.. guess what.. aaaghghgh I have to clean up.  It would have been so much simpler had I done it as the days went along, but no…. aghhhhhh hands to the heavens…. “will I ever get this right”

Have a grand day my lovelies, rain or shine, we are ONE.  You and me… travelers on this road of life.  You make it much more interesting. You do!

Life is to be lived, life is to be shared.  Never fear saying, you care. Your smile is worth barrels of sunshine that will last for miles.

Oyashikiri
