It’s OK! God is watching over you. Things turn out for the best. Don’t be captured by momentary troubles but continue doing everything with sincerity.

First I want to thank everyone for their prayers and good wishes.. I certainly appreciated hearing from you knowing my well being was being assisted by your prayers .. I can’t promise that I won’t try to take down another dead tree on my own… but I will exercise more awareness when I hear my knee snap and my leg give a whimper to PAY ATTENTION… and not try to “finish up what I started”
This will be a quickie since I can’t sit for any length of time.. the affected muscles etc. run up into my buttock.. I’ve been provided with a set of crutches which I need to even get off the bed. And friends are coming by to ensure that I “behave”, eat, etc. the dogs are being wonderful.. carefully staying out of the way when I try to manoeuvre from the bedroom to the bathroom. I’m afraid I might have to spent more time reclining with the leg up.. for another 24 hours. (sigh I’m a terrible patient, I want to find a way to get back into the woods to finish what I started!) (Ducks as Awen readies to whop me with a fish)
OK OK I promise I’ll be good (for this morning anyway ) All the medication yesterday is still making its way through my system. Later I’ll catch up on your adventures and drink in the wonderful visual presentations.
Take care everyone! Enjoy the crisp fall weather..
btw. anyone else, have WP change the font etc. on them?
Depending on where you are in the city and surrounding areas, the colours are beginning to deepen .. In some areas, there is a rainbow of colour, yet you drive out west of the downtown core and the greens are still dominant. Change is on its way, you can feel it in the air, smell it on the breeze that brings a chill and hovers before drifting off. The Robins are being social, coming out and being more present around us when we are on the trails. Every day I hear the sound of the crows as they inspect and search out their winter “resorts”… yesterday another photographer was patiently waiting for a “big” as she called it, wood pecker that had been frequenting the feeder area.

Today being the 1st, in PL it is when the PL ceremony for Peace is performed – today at 10 a.m. if you can’t make it to church, please take a moment to pray for world peace. Remember to show appreciation and give thanks for yesterday, and NOW.
Each person’s peace leads to world peace. First of all, you have to be happy. That happiness will spread and be the foundation of World Peace.

You have the opportunity every day to start a new canvas..
Everywhere one looks today, you can visually see that the seasons are changing. Summer has begun its departure, the colours of fall are slowly taking over. The air is fresher and cooler especially in the mornings and evenings.
Let’s respond clearly. Giving a proper response shows consideration towards others.
May you always walk in sunshine. May you never want for more.
Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom
My evening meditation that came in from Japan last night, was something I very much needed to read, and contemplate on. I will share it with you.
It is about Listening. To be honest with others is not to do as they say, but to try to understand their feelings with a blank mind. Don’t listen to the other person’s story on the surface, but listen to the other person’s heart.
Good Morning everyone.. I have a thought I’d like to share with you, I am open to your input. For years now I have been doing special prayers. Seldom does a day go by where I don’t meet up with someone, and/or get asked to pray for someone who is going through, or having a difficult time with .. whatever… Certainly in these times of multiple tragedies, whether due to climate change, or day to day circumstances, there is a need for prayer.
In PL, we, as members are encouraged to pray everyday, and yes there are days, set aside for special ceremonies and prayers that are led officially by a minister or Hokyoshi. Through this site, I often will get a personal request for spiritual help, for someone who just needs a “helping hand” I have taken to doing silent prayers for individuals at a time I set aside, just for the purpose of doing what I call a power prayer.. Would anyone out there be willing to add their voice to this power prayer? It is simply a matter or putting aside a few minutes a day, to pray for those who have asked for help, who need a special prayer in their lives. It is the act of dedication, the sincerity of the request that is important.
Do you think it would interest you? It would take only a few minutes of your time… but it would be a time that would be of great service to others. Thank you for considering this request for input. There is a by-product, you get to spend a minute on yourself too =^_^=
Improve yourself to have a kinder heart. Do what you can to be caring and considerate to make others happy.
These BJD (ball jointed dolls) have been patiently sitting now for over 3 years waiting for me to “get to them” I have not gotten names for them yet.. they are just “there”… The one on the left that I have been aging, is definitely going to reflect fall (big smile) my fav time of year for “creative expression” The green is a paste I’m trying that works for getting the moss effect, then I have the crypt paste which has a grit in it, and the texture grave paste I want to try. Fun time ahead. =^_^=
Each Person’s peace leads to world peace. First of all, you have to be happy. that happiness will spread and be the foundation of World Peace.

First day of September everyone! Whoooo hoooo cachoooo!!!
When I saw this picture that Michel took I knew I had to share it, (he said OK) isn’t it a heart-breaker. Michel is a wildlife photographer here in the Ottawa area, many of his pictures are stunning, but this one… it had a WOW factor I couldn’t resist. Especially as you all know a family of racoons has been trying to redo the feeders at one location, and doing a rather good job of it… I arrived at the feeders yesterday to find that the bicycle is now in two pieces.. sigh.
This is why I began to research early what will work over the coming winter season. These past weeks I have seen possibilities, but of course, the birds who will spend most of the winter months in the area, have not started to arrive. Presently there is a different clientele =^_^=
Don’t think overly about people. Instead of being excessively concerned about others, focus on what you should do.

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.

This last quote is one that I try hard to practice daily, To do so, I have to also practice, “stillness” “listening” and “patience”. It is a habit to rush, to be busy, to be on the go. I am much better now, but at one time I had a day timer and it was used every day, I scheduled, planned and wrote in it every day.. Now, I seldom use one at all. Every day is a new beginning, every day we get a chance to start a new canvas or revisit an old one.. but it is a day of possibilities. My husband’s motto was always “seize the day” =^_^= He did his best to do so till the day he passed on…
No one ever said life would be easy.. but it is always interesting and AND.. FULL OF LOVE!
When we live with love in our hearts, it spreads into the world around us… =^_^=
What happens, is I don’t get to walk, and the birds and the wee animals …they all take time to visit other places in the woods.
Strive to overcome obstacles by changing your mind-frame. things don’t always go as planned. When that happens, try changing how you look at the situation or how you are doing things. The outcome is in your hands.

Its Okay to think “This is where it starts” There is always a turning point. It’s important what you do from now.

It actually worked out.. with the filming crew at the site, it gave me time to come back early and do work that needed doing here at the house. I did catch up with a friend, and we did get to work on a project that needed doing. We hadn’t planned it, but life just presented us with the right ingredients. And had my day not been rescheduled for me, I wouldn’t have had time to have a “coffee break” with another friend. There you go! life is good! Not at all what I had planned and expected, but worked out even better, because I got to share it with friends.
