bed lump

 

img_1722bedlumpA bed lump happens when your dog insists on helping make the bed.  Eventually I made it around and over her.  All I had was a lump, but then she got out, and left me with this. img_1721Before I could straighten up the mess.  Her brother took over her job of helping.  There he is calming cleaning himself up after his breakfast.  No hurry to move, and not concerned that he could be delaying my progress.  For my readers who share their homes with four-legged bundles of energy, you know that it is often such moments that can be endearing or…. trying on one’s patience.

Whether it is a loved one, a friend, a co-worker or total stranger, there is seldom a day that will go by when our “personal” agenda is not presented with a hiccup.

In PL, Principle #3…. I will live with a mind of appreciation towards others and things, and Principle # 5  .. I will not get angry at anyone or anything, are mantras I repeat during the day.

Precept # 15  All is a mirror.    How often in a day, does my behaviour, or something I say or do, cause someone else to pause.

My Mother used to say, ” it is not always about you”.  Over the years I have had many occasion to meditate on my actions, and the world around me, and how I react to it.  After all, Dad would say ” the choice is yours, you can let others dictate your mood/happiness, or your can know and appreciate your worth, let go and move on.’

A philosophical morning, you bet!.. to friends in Michigan, is deWitt, or Lansing somewhere that I can get to easily?

For those of you coming to church this morning, I will see you at church.  If you are unable to be with us in person, please say a silent prayer for World Peace.  Today is Feb. 1st.  the first day of the month.  Day of Peace service will begin at 10 a.m.

Have a grand day everyone, may it be a productive and rewarding day for you.

Hula Hamster JOY

hula hamster xyThis precious handmade hamster, makes my heart sing.  She puts a smile in my heart just by sitting there smiling back at me.

hula hamster xThe last few days have been difficult for me.  I have found myself drifting into a state of “low drive and little interest ”   When I could I retreated to my bed,  the quiet of a darkened room and the desire to sleep.  My sleep mates were only too happy to crawl under cover and enjoy time out from the weather that was raging outside.

Today I had to go out, there were errands that needed doing, so after a lazy start to the day, I took myself off to do what needed doing.  When I arrived at the church I was surprised with JOY, the adorable Hula Hamster.  Oh what a gift.  I melted and was totally taken in by her charm.

Loving caring friendships are priceless.  JOY lifted me out of the shadows , back into the sunshine.  Olinda weaved a magic spell,   I am blown away. Thank you.  I am reminded that in life,  in a split second, the sun can break through the clouds, and all is right again.

hula hamster joyI am so blessed.  The Universe always comes through for me, when I allow myself to stumble, my friends are there reminding me, that LOVE, is always with me.  God is Love, Love is GOD and we are all ONE

Hula Hamster is handmade and I love her.

snow day

img_1697It has been snowing now, all day.  At least it appears to have been snowing since early this morning, it could have even snowed over night.

img_1700Temperature has been nice.  The few times I went outside to let the dogs in or out, I found it to be very pleasant.

“we can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses ” Abraham Lincoln

The dogs have pointed me to a quote by  Ralph Waldo Emerson ” Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail”This is the back yard, their trails have all gone missing…

img_1699Some how I do believe they are hinting.  Will the human take the hint?  One of life’s mysteries.

hmmmm choices, choices..   Till next visit.. hope your day has been simply GRAND.

Hello, bonjour, bom dia, and jumping jack greetings to each and every one of you.  Another new year is just around the corner,  In China the airports, train stations, all methods of travel really, are homeward bound.  It is exciting, and alive time.  Seeing friends and family sharing huge family meals, and gatherings.

Since my Mother’s passing and for several years before she actually passed, the Chinese New Year  came and went with a happy conversation and a small sparkle.  She was unable to get to the various celebrations held around the city or at the Chinese Embassy. Since I can remember, Chinese New Year has been the BIG turning point for me.  I remember as a child the banquet and feasts, the dragon dances, fire crackers and the many many ritual tasks that were preformed to make sure we started the new year off with gratitude for the past year and much appreciation for the wonderful time ahead.  Good fortune, Prosperity wishes were everywhere.  Red envelopes, special candies,  Happy New Year greetings always included the wish that your life be blessed with good health.

With my husband’s passing last year I wanted more than ever for this transition into another year to be auspicious and filled with the many joys and encouragements we would share to be 100 fold.  I worked on a year of the pig mixed media piece so that I would be actively piecing together elements that would be like a visual firecracker for me.  The lunar new year depending on where you live, is o the 5th. of February.

Ps… my little wheel around the pig.  spins.

Reminder.. due to the storm and the broken water pipe, there will be no service today, but Thanksgiving service is still scheduled for tomorrow evening at 7 pm.

A stumbling block to the pessimist is a stepping stone to the optimist – Eleanor Roosevelt

PL calendar day 20

Find a good balance between your present and past experiences.  Without forgetting your original intent, continue to develop your own path by also relying on your knowledge and experience.

I came home today to find a beautiful floral piece with miniature fairy lights.  The lights  twinkle and dance merrily in their space.  The display is  magical. Even on the grayest of days, they will be an inspiration.  =^_^=

PL Precept #1  Life is Art

 

foo foo food

 

Bom dia, Good start to the day!  Breakfast? Lunch? Dinner?  What do you eat, when do you eat, do you skip meals, do you like vegetables.  Food is a topic that is talked about all over the world, day in and day out.

Gosh I had potatoes today when I really wanted rice.  I could have had spaghetti, I’ve been thinking about pasta for days.  We have to eat.  AND… we have to or should drink so many glasses of water a day.  Knowing this, we either have to come up with what we want to eat, then how we will go about getting the meal we want with or without a lot of effort on our part.  In some way, form or another.

Day 18  PL calendar – You will feel better when you take immediate action.

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.

My eating habits are nothing like they were when I was younger. Change is constant in my life.  But no matter how my tastes have changed, for better or worse, I have to eat,  Yet I dither, I procrastinate, then out of habit, I will see the time, and fix myself something to eat.  It may be nothing like what I had hoped for, or thought I would eat. Can anyone else relate?

Choices, we all have to make them.  How are you doling these days?  The week-end is here, do you change your meal choices for the week-end?  Just asking… =^_^=

Curry on the 21st at church after service, see you there?
