My sincere thank you to all who joined in last evening for 7 pm Evening Service. I admit that as I prepared, I asked myself, “why”… but … the moment passed and at 7, I began the service. I sat for some time after, allowing my emotions and thoughts to empty. I guess the events of the past many months has taken more of a toll on me, than I had imaged. The service and the prayer, were a balm .. I slept last night, with ease. I really do believe in the power of prayer. When this is shared, it is even more “powerful”
Ok so maybe I didn’t sleep quite as relaxed as Velcro, but I did sleep, it was a sound and restful sleep. First in a long while.
Make today a different day. Instead of doing the same old thing, be creative and do things to improve your day.

Always live with a kind and generous heart. Show love and embrace others good points, be willing to overlook their faults. One who has a generous heart can live a fulfilled life.
There are days when waking from a dream, we open our eyes to the reality of the day. Today was a day snuggling back under the duvet. It is lovely, mild but no sunshine, looks like it will be mostly overcast. when I saw this picture it drew me into another world, One of books, fantasy, wee folk, and magic. Picture the wee ones, going about their daily routines under the dense foliage. Oblivious to humans and their woes.
Some of you will have memories of hot summer days, when central air wasn’t the norm, Maybe your at the cottage, away from your landline, and certainly no cell phones. You hear the buzzing of the bees, and the birds flying over heard call out a greeting as they fly to their destination. Its a lazy day, you could be on holiday, or maybe you just prefer living where there is less “traffic and busy activity” ..just thinking of times when one could simple BE .. if you fish, that quiet on the lake in the early morning dawn. Take a moment to relive a memory that brings you back in touch with your inner quiet/calm. =^_^=
Today due to circumstances beyond our control, many of us are having to deal with “alone” time. We’ve been unceremoniously thrown back in time (on some levels) where we have to adjust to less outside intrusions on our thoughts. Getting lost in electronic devices/games, or watching endless television, does not soothe or alleviate the need for meaningful connections. Whether that be with others who share in this “situation” we find ourselves or with “nature/life” Our minds need to have time to heal from the constant borage of negativity that is or has been filling the “airwaves”

When I first saw this picture, I felt a calm, a quiet.. this is a lazy day in the Ottawa area…. today in the woods there was snow and it was cool, ok cold. Smiles. That is why I enjoy looking back at the memories collected either by myself or others. A moment captured can give so much to the viewer, every picture tells a story.
Feel the contrast of emotion, the moment shifts, it changes when you visit the trees covered with snow. Life is full of such moments, one minute we are sailing on high energy, and the next, we can be coasting over rocky ground. either way, we are alive to the changes. In each of these pictures there is a whole world of “wild life” that we are not seeing. I was in smack dab in the middle of the trees in the above picture, what you don’t hear is the chatter of the birds all around me. I had just put out seeds and peanuts, the Blue Jays were cawing and calling, the smaller birds were chirping, woodpeckers were pecking… it was busy.
Life is wonderful isn’t it. We are so blessed that in this world we live in, we are surrounded with light and love. I know sometimes it doesn’t feel so, especially if you are constantly being bombarded with news media. Put it aside, allow the natural wonders of the Universe to be present in your life. Allow all your sense to explore and delight in the discoveries that you will find, when you take the time to “stop” and be “present”.
In PL we practice being present, we want to radiate love of life, and show our appreciation for all that is part of the world we live in. Live each moment, it will never reoccur.
Listen carefully and speak clearly. A good relationship starts from truly understanding each other.

I really love the contrast of these two pictures. Each one, tells me a completely different story, and has a different feeling to it. (yin/yang)
Have a great day today, remember to smile… reach out and show appreciation =^_^=
the day would come when the opportunity would come again…
maybe then, the wait would not be in vain
You will find joy when you immerse yourself in your task. When you face your tasks with a can do attitude, you will be filled with enthusiasm and inspiration.

Words once said, are hard to take back. Think before you rush into speech. Listen to what is said, assimilate, take it in. Change is the only constant. the intensity of a moment, can change in a heart beat.
Turn your intuitions into actions. appreciate each intuition you receive and take action right away. By doing so will invite good fortune.
from the pictures, all looks stark and bare – however that is not what was, what could not be capture in the frame, were the sounds of children laughing, crying out in glee at their discoveries. The happy songs of the chickadees that were swooping and landing with graceful delight at the offered treats.
I captured the trees in the late autumn wardrobes, as they patiently waited for the forecasted snow. There were people all around, dressed for the November chill, colourful jackets and scarves could be seen dotting the skyline as they emerged from their cars in the parking lot some yards away.
It was a happy day, everyone knew what was coming this way. You could feel the icy fingers of the teasing taunting wind… oh yes… snow would be here later that day.*
One should never assume that what you see at first glance, is what IS.
It is easy to misinterpret the situation and jump to conclusions. Always have a humble attitude and double check to make sure.

Be easy going and live your life cheerfully and flexibly. Strong emotions can be the cause of various troubles. Always strive to have a cheerful and calm state of mind.
