crows, snow and a door

I started the day with the thought that I would go on a door expedition. However that thought was swept away by the constant shifting of the winds and drifting snow/rain. We see a lot of door exteriors, this is the interior view of a lonely door. It doesn’t get used much except to hold left over “this and that” from my creative moments.

This morning the crows dined on freshly baked, chicken hearts, giblets and liver. My babies (whippets) got to have the nutritious gravy with their kibble. During these times of restraints and “forced” isolation, I find that being in and with nature is very calming.

Express your appreciation with enthusiasm. Appreciation is the driving force for progress and development.

PL Principle # 2 I will not have complaints about others, matters, nor the weather. Rather I will always be creative and will look for shortcomings in my own thinking and actions.

PL Principle # 3 I will live with a mind of appreciation towards others and things.

PL 21 Principles.

I am reminded every day of how blessed I am to have the wonderful friends that I have around me, and how when I meet strangers while in nature, they smile, and always have a sunny greeting to call out. Not only do the birds sing, and call out to each other, but there is children’s laughter, and the joy of people who have come to commune with nature. Everyone stays respectfully distant, and except for the odd person, all wear masks if they are going to be coming by or past you. It’s a new year. and a new way of BEING.


Everything exists in relativity

church on the 21st.!

but really? we are on lock down!

We all got the same e-mail last night.. I did late last night.. Read and re read the message, yes, there will be a service this Thursday on the 21st. We know it is last minute, and that most of us are simply unable to attend. Here is where we put into practice what we did the other night, when I held an evening service. If you are unable to attend, please join us at 7 pm EST. while Rev. E. performs the special service. It is called service of Appreciation.

Cast your mind to the church, find your seat, and sit quietly while others gather in their homes to join us. Service will start at 7, begin with your salutation, move on to reading your PL prayer, then sit in quiet reflection while Rev E performs the Appreciation ceremony. spending time with us, in quiet prayer is all we can ask for at this time.. The positive and healing energy of the group will surround you even if you are miles away from the physical church. God is with us everywhere, God is in the air we breathe and in all that we see, feel and do. Be mindful.

But we are here together, and we will support one an other. THERE IS ALWAYS A WAY!

Use any results, good or bad, as a stepping stone. All outcomes, whether positive or negative are important experiences. Let’s use them wisely for our our future progress.

crow/raven

watchful, sharp powerful foresight- change, transformation, prophecy and good luck

I’ve never met a crow/raven that I have not fallen in love with. Today, I was in the right place at the right time, I saw one, and then another, it was kismet. For me they symbolize intelligence, flexibility and destiny.

Ebony feathered wonders. The are very vocal, usually having a lot to say. I saw them in the parking lot of a McDonalds… Yes I was picking up my black iced coffee, no cream, no sugar. (for those of you who know my need for cold coffee when driving) Then at Dewberry Trail, the sky was full of crows, they were in the tree branches .. my first time, in all my visits there to actually see them there.

Throughout history, these birds have been portrayed as spirits and divine messengers. I would like to think, they are letting me know// something good is going to happen! Crows are not afraid of dealing with something new (unknown). Entering into this new year, we can all take a page from their chapter on optimism.

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

Stuff happens

Look at it.. its already got the rust on it.. its perfect for my collection… OK… I left it there, it was too big to haul away anyway =^_^= Couldn’t help but think the driver couldn’t have been too happy …

Do everything willingly and joyfully. Your upbeat attitude will make things more cheerful and enjoyable.

new beginnings

Golden Bay, NZ by Shirley Keen

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”

a relaxed whippet

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.

snow Saturday

outside my bedroom window at 7:30 a.m YES it is still snowing.
guess my little Garden spirit will be smoothened under the snow. (see PS below)

What is “Normal” is different for each individual. Everyone has a different way of thinking and doing. It is important to understand others’ feelings.

Value those who are nearest to you. It is especially easy to overlook how wonderful your spouse or other family members really are. Always remember to respect and value one another.

silent Friday

at the start of a new day

I close my eyes and sit quietly

my thoughts, come and go

I let them happen, follow the flow

I acknowledge and accept that my mind is restless

Perceiving equals doing. each time you notice something, it is a gift from God. don’t miss this opportunity to act.

There is too much being said these days

too many words spoken without honest intent

more than ever, it is important to know one’s SELF

Always express yourself with a bright smile. Strive to always be cheerful. A cheerful and open hearted person has the power to spread their positive energy to others.

God &Nature -deus Natureza

I know you can only see the back, but do you know what kind of bird this is, she was such a pretty colour.

Try putting yourself in the other person’s shoes. pus aside your own convenience for a moment and think about what would make the other person happy, or what would best serve their needs.

Perfect Liberty 2016.27

I give thanks to the teachings of PL, for teaching me to love, to see God within me, and everywhere around (por me ensinar amar assim por ver d eus dentro de mim E em qualquer lugar.) In the pattern of colours, in the buzzing of bees, in the joy of the flowers, and gently swaying trees. Na harmonia das cores, Na musica a tocar, Na alegria das flores E no sol a brilhar.

In the singing of the birds, clouds dancing a cross the sky, in the leaves floating down, in a full moon on high. No canto dos passaros, Na folhas a goterjar, no verde das florestas, no murmurio do mar.

taken from PL song, Deus Natureza by Maria Aldiniria M Martins (God and Nature)

Today more than ever, we need to regroup and find our way back to Nature.

nature is a healing balm

Thursday doors revisited

Doors come in many sizes and colours, some are from the past, some are still being used today. Like the people who conceived them, used them, doors are all unique. When the shut down period is over I hope to get out to acquire more pictures. 🐱

Have a “let’s do it” attitude. Even if a t ask is difficult, keep in mind it is given by God and accomplish it.

morning visitors

What beauties, when I arrived this morning, I was delighted to find that the Grosebeaks were all gathered for their morning buffet. Having come to fill the feeders before heading to the dentist I did not have my camera, fortunately for me Kevin came by mid day and got these pictures for us to enjoy.

Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If in our heart, we still cling to anything – anger, anxiety, or possessions – we cannot be free.

Thich Nhat Hanh

Let’s begin today with a smile. Let’s start the day with a positive outlook, looking forward to what we can discover.
