ho ho hope!

Good morning everyone… the season is on us. Songs on the radio, a special channel devoted to the music of the season. On the telly we have the Hallmark channel already showing their “feel good” movies. What about us, you and me, the marketing departments, the promotions, adverts, they are all prepared. In the States I guess it will happen real quick like once their Thanksgiving is over. No I don’t usually speak this way, (real quick like) but I liked the sound. The keys flowed with a rhythm.

It is early, but the snow machines are out, I can hear them rolling down the sidewalk. In some way, form or another, we have started to think of how we will portion ourselves up to be with friends, family and loved ones. On a personal level, we are not companies that can delegate and assign different tasks to various departments to reach a goal, we have to do it for ourselves.

In a conversation recently it was suggest that I be the adult and this meant in the situation we were discussing, that I should be more responsible myself. and take action accordingly. Had me wondering just what it means to be an adult. We (as parents) were the ones rushing around getting gifts, hiding them all to make “others” (we hoped) happy an surprised on Xmas day. But……………………. what about us, the individual, what is it about being an adult that sets us apart, from the ones who have dreams and wishes. Why are we responsible for making others happy.

In PL we believe that each and everyone of us, is responsible for US. If I cannot make myself happy, how can I expect someone else to make me happy. Be true to one’s SELF. We live a moment and we move on. Also we want others to be happy and we do our best to open our hearts to them. That is why we pray for the guidance to enable us to be a “good person” and to do our best for others and society. Adult or otherwise*, these are the teachings of PL.

enthusiasm

A view of winter past

.. this view is from Michigan.. Friends of mine, who live in Michigan, shared this picture with me last year.

Yes, I could have gone out and shot a picture of the lovely snow on my tree branches and in my back yard.. but my skyline is a cold overcast gray. Choices.

My day starts with reading of PL’s reminder of the day. (From PL calendar*)

Your enthusiasm will pave the way. Your enthusiasm will fuel your efforts and creativity and will spread it to those around you, driving new developments.

Perfect Liberty 2019.7

When we start the day with a purpose, it helps us make choices throughout the day. Choices help us to grow. If we make one that doesn’t exactly work out as we had planned, than we simply learn from the experience, and move along. There are no bad days, busy days yes, living each moment with positive action, is always rewarding. Life is living, and living IS life.

In sickness and in health, till death do us part.

For those interested, the 2020 calendars are out, they make great gifts to friends, the cost will be the same as it was last year. If your purchasing a number of them and cannot pick them up at the church, there will likely be a postage cost …

alas Friday

Little flower look at you

bleached by the sun, with only rocks to protect you

how brave you are, standing there all alone

gosh I am so glad that I  came across you today

you’ve made me smile and given me pause

to reflect on how,  anything is possible*.

Thank you little flower,

thank you.

Q

Have a happy start to a week-end friends.  Enjoy all the moments presented to you

Value your Intuition !  When you suddenly have an A-ha! moment, or when a thought pops into your mind, it is God sending you a message.  As soon as you notice something, you should act upon it right away

oh hello, almost missed you

 I felt your stillness

it drew me back to you

sometimes in life,

this is something we need to do too

yet for reasons, beyond comprehension

we keep racing ahead

then wonder how in the world

we find ourselves in over our heads

thank you.. for reminding me

to stop and simply BE

Q

 

Welcome to PL where your environment and the things that happen in front of you are all materials for your self expression and learning =^_^=

Thursday doors

 

Some doors should just stay shut, and others should be explored.  A door opened yesterday, that gave vent for deep rooted anger and hurt to escape.  Fortunately I was able to close the door again.  But it is obviously one I will have to explore again, at another time.

My Mother passed away 2 years ago, my husband one year ago.  There is more processing to do. I give thanks for the blessing of friends.

PL Precept # 5  One’s self is lost by being emotional

PL Precept # 4  Being annoyed limits your expression.

Question, when your hurt is disrespected and tossed aside, my reaction is to withdraw, so that I can be respectful as much as I can of another persons stubbornness… Why is it so difficult for me to accept.  I am not a masochist .. I distance myself my preference to be to live in peace and be happy.  However, there are times, it isn’t that simple.  So by golly, shut that darn door, and leave it closed, in fact, bring the nails and hammer and I will nail it shut.

How serious am I.

Thanksgiving

Bom dia, good morning..

The 21st is drawing near. There is a long week-end coming up.  For those of you celebrating Easter, enjoy your time with family and friends.  It is a special week-end.  In PL we celebrate Thanksgiving on the 21st.

The Thanksgiving service is the 21st of each month.  It is the most important service of the month.  This Sunday will be a very positive and prayer filled day.  Our church here in Ottawa will hold service at 10 a.m. and again at 7 pm.  All are welcome.

Today – PL Calendar day 18

Things have a way of getting more complicated when you procrastinate.  Work on taking immediate action and you will discover many ways to tackle the situation.
