Thank you Oshieoya-sama for teaching me to love, to see God within me  and everywhere around.

*Excerpts from God and Nature, sung in church Sunday, (page)

I can harmonize with you with nature and humankind.  I am happy living like this, a rich feeling hard to find.  Harmonizo-me contigo, com os homens e a natureza.  Viendo assim sou feliz E nao ha maior riqueza

With love and blessings, great the world with your smile and presence.

Greetings on Sunday

 

fright drucillaMay the day shine brightly for you.  Sunday and we are not having a service this morning, because of the service last evening. What does one do on a Sunday morning, when there is no service.  I to Drucilla’s displeasure, decided to play with my paint and other supplies to start on a  makeover for her.  I have told her that this is therapeutic for both of us, but her silence tells me, …. it is all in my head.

Tomorrow begins another month.  October.  The leaves have started to change, when driving the back roads yesterday, I saw more sights of reds peaking through the evergreens.  Actually not only the various shades of red, but the yellow orange hue were also taking over the fresh greens of the summer.  The camera buffs who have been slumbering through the sweltering summer, will be polishing off their lenses to take full advantage of the fall display that will soon be in full bloom.  I confess, I love, LOVE the autumn season, here in Canada where we get four different seasons, the fall months tantalize and delight me.

With that in mind I will be on the watch this morning, for “something” to catch my “eye” while I am out driving along the river, into rural Ontario. Some time, when you are inclined to do so, you must tell me how you mange to drive and “catch” that perfect moment, when there is other traffic on the road… =^_^=

PL Calendar day 30

Use your results to make the next time even better

Whether things turn out perfectly or not, the important thing is to take what you’ve learned and apply it to the next time.

If I could make this lesson, flash with neon lights, I would do so,  I think the mice are back, or trying to come back in  As you know, it took a long time to rid this house of the little “devils”…. So! mon ami, it looks like we will again, take on the capturing of mice.

I have spent my evenings with Poirot (Agatha Christie} audio books, so delightful!

Wednesday again

fright group pic 9 26

bom dia, este e um costume?  no no, the dolls are coming home for the October festivities. Are they ready, they have been jabbering all night about their experiences and the stories they want to tell.  The acts of kindness they have been able to participate in, now, with October just days away, they have made their way home to celebrate the month of the year, reserved for them.

They are aware that they are not like the rest, and stand out in a crowd.  But each one is unique and has his/her own story … Here they are not judged by their “look” LOL or lack of, they simply can enjoy letting down their hair, not replacing an eye, wearing what they want, and and and, the list goes on.  Who knows maybe one will have a story to tell that I can share with you. rubs hands with glee and gives a crackling chuckle.. “time will tell dearies”

Day 26  PL Calendar     Maintain a positive attitude and wisdom will come to you

Worrying will prevent you from having good ideas.  Stay positive and you will find a solution.

Quiet

The other day, this pond was quiet, still.

Yesterday it was populated with a gaggle of ducks happily enjoying the sunshine of an early fall day.

same location,   except in this picture I am on the other side of the little pond.

The only constant in life is change.   Life goes on.  Eliza’s post that I reposted to you just before writing this, caught my “mood” perfectly’.

As one life ends, another begins  ——— one door closes, another opens.  This is what life is all about. new beginnings.

skull floral 2Bom dia, Happy Friday dear my dears

Whooooo is getting ready for the witching month.

Whooooo has gathered her friends to discuss the possibilities

Me, that’s whoooooo!

The possibilities are endless of course, and I have changed my mind 1000 times at least.  Think about it, isn’t one of the joys in life, anticipation.  When we were children the excitement of special holidays, or time away from routine was always so exciting. Some included gifts, others trips, time for getting together with friends, and just plain old. play time.

As an adult, yes, now I can really say I am an adult…LOL  no questions asked… for sure I am seen by many as something very different from how I see myself.  That is something we call come face to face with.  Life has it is seen by the different generations.

However .. the fall is the time of year where my creative juices really get charged. I know I am not alone, just visit any shop in any town, city or  hollow, and you will see a different palette than the one earlier in the year. Colours are vibrant with jewel tones, the air is crisp, the apples crackle, pumpkins spill out everywhere.

If you haven’t had the small pie pumpkin as a veggie,you are missing a treat.

Today being the 21st. of the month, in PL, we are celebrating Thanksgiving, where we pay special attention, to giving thanks for our blessings of the past weeks, and pray for the continued blessings of the Universe.  Recognizing that we, and we alone are responsisble for our actions.  Love/peace begins in our hearts.

Being happy within ourSelves makes for a much more fulfilling life, don’t just exist, have the passion to BE.  Share a smile!

Service will be at 7pm.

 

Thursday Doors – 9.20

 

Charm of days gone by.  There is so much to take in when you travel a back road. You have to know that you will not get anywhere fast, you simply accept the moments of discovery.  This was the scene that beckoned loud enough for me to stop and actually get out.  It is aged, tired and worn, but yet it is standing proud. Wind, snow, ice, rain, yes they have left their mark, but the place, for me , still had a quiet dignity.  It stood, just off a paved road, but the surrounding land, was rich and bore the remnants of a bountiful crop.

I left today, open to the possibilities, and the Universe  provided  “seek and you shall find”  PL Precept #1   Life is Art

The day was a happy one, and totally productive in a very creative way.  I hope you enjoyed the same.

had a good co-pilot that helped..

shared adventure, doubles the fun!

 

Moments

IMG_0908

good morning, bom dia, buen dia    The moment you notice is the best timing

El momento en que perciba es la oportunidad

A chance esta no momento em que e percebe

I am the little yellow flower in the picture above.  I was out being spoiled with another special outing.  One of my  dearest friends had arranged with me weeks ago, for us to celebrate yesterday.  Celebrate we did.  It was a full day of shopping and exploring, ending with a fabulous dinner at the Mandarin, (Asian buffet)

Yesterday, Eartha drove, she was my hostess with the mostess.  Then last night as I lay basking in the events of the day, I imagined this picture, and  my being the yellow flower, surrounded by people, events with the world going on all around me. I had a feeling that I  had missed something, and it nagged me.  So much so that this morning, I sat down to meditate on “it”

The rest of todays calendar message says…  Procrastinating will only weigh you down.  The best time to do something is when you notice it.  You will feel lighter both physically and spiritually.

Whatever is niggling at me, took place yesterday, obviously I was too surrounded by outside energies and activities.  It was a special day, and thanks to Eartha sneaking in a surprise on me, I have a memento of our time, that I am able to put on the fridge (a picture of us that the Mandarin presents to us in the form of a magnet)   A cherished souvenir!

Sometimes in life, we are so busy living, we miss something else, that moment is gone, so begin TODAY with Makoto (sincerity and focus).
