Happy Father’s Day

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY

Put your heart into your words. Do you tend to speak in just a matter of fact tone? It is important to put your heart into your words

And I wish you joy and happiness. But above all of this, I wish you love.

mindfulness

quiet reflection

You can be with God by having a prayerful mind. Let’s pray for World Peace. We are all one big family. Let’s start by praying for the happiness of those around us.

Perfect Liberty 2022.11

Find compassion with others by thinking of things you have in common: ” Just like me, this person wishes to be well and happy” Then take a moment to send them some kind wishes.

a quide to mindfulness 3..22.

the night is dark, my thoughts simple

In the quiet as I sit in the evening shadow

I know the light in the room is You

I need only close my eyes to feel your presence

with gratitude and appreciation I allow the night to draw me in

There is a calm that wrapes like a balm around my restless heart

When I allow my mind to clear of all that is shallow/unnecessary

and simply listen

fresh green of new growth

It’s easier to adapt to something when we find it interesting. No matter how enjoyable a situation is, a slight change in our attitude can make it boring. Let’s face any situation with curiosity and enthusiasm.

Perfect Liberty 2022.10

Welcome to new readers, I would be remiss in not biding you a good day! It is such a warm rush of pleasure when I see that we have new members in our “community”.. When I read today’s calendar I asked myself the question.. “how am I adapting with the many changes that have happened in my life over the month of May.”

May was painful in many ways.. the anniversaries of my Mother’s passing, my husbands passing the major storm that left me without power for a week plus. I felt at times like a rubber ball being bounced over large sharp edged boulders.

if I was one of my warriors – this would be a selfie

Nature will continue to flourish and grow around the warrior … soon he won’t be seen the vegetation will become so dense. Time will work on the fresh wounds and soften the jagged edges. Reality – there is o going back.

Many of you have experienced simliar aches, even if the causes are comletely different – you know what it is to feel sadness that overwhelms. It is important to not overlook or try to diminsh that “fact”… The rebuilding is slow, and I now know can take not days and weeks, but months and maybe even years … to move comfortably into “now”.

Research has shown that there is a reason we love a sad movie. (sad film paradox) They talked and asked questions of hundreds and thousands plus people…. we like to be moved, to feel connected to what it is to be human, to be reminded of our inextricable connection to one another. Their study revealed a highly significant positibve correlation between sadness and enjoyment. This association is sequential. Sadness leads to feeling moved, which in turn leads to enjoyment.

Grief does not obey your plans, or our wishes. Grief will do whatever it wants to you, whenever it wants to. In that regard, Grief.. had a lot in common with love.

Thursday fun…

The best timing is when you notice. When you notice something, it is God sending you a message. Act right away so you don’t miss good timing.

One never knows what will catch your attention when you are out wandering.

reflections

I love this time of year. Today I actually heard the buzzing sound of mosquitos .. we are experiencing warm weather and the next 5, 6, days will be more of the same, actually it is said that this year we will have an unusually warm summer.

Always be cheerful, happy and good humoured. When you make effort to be cheerful and happy, you will naturally begin to feel that way.

lying in the sun

I admit to being a lazy one today. I got to the beaver pond, and decided to sit down for awhile and wait to see if the beaver(s)would come out. The sun was warm, there was no one around, the wooden planks were so inviting, I took off my padded vest folded it to make a headrest.. and… yup. I lay down right there. Stayed over to the side of the boardwalk so others could get by.. but made myself comfortable, stretched out.. and just let the sun work its magic.

The quiet of the day was soothing. Birds calling, even saw my first butterfly of the season, Today in PL, we celebrated the Day of Peace. Welcome a new month.

Every day is a new beginning. PL Precept # 18 Each moment is a turning Point.

Thanks Dan for reminding me about the beavers.. photo by Dan Cadieux (link to his site is below)

Till soon everyone..

bramble

Finding my way through bramble, brush,& fallen trees, was a challenge I gave myself today See the small opening, once the vegetation gets going, this is barely visible. I thought I could follow the animal trails and explore beyond the initial growth. forgetting that the animals using the trails are on all fours and much shorter than my human 5.3″ frame. I had to push aside the branches with thorns and duck under the bigger branches that wouldn’t push aside.. Curiosity drove me forward.

I did come across a small clearing that at one time someone or persons had tried to put up some kind of shelter. the picture on the right, you can see there is a shelf of some kind.. not sure if someone perched on it, or it was used for ??. There was no clear access to this area, not now anyway… so how long ago this area was used and what it was used for, is unknown to me. I spent time rummaging around looking for clues, but if there were any, they eluded me.

When I finally headed out back to the more “civilized” part of the woods, I found I was not where I thought I was, and had wandered off course, I could only get to the main “path/road” by crossing over or through water. and then making my way up a rather steep incline. How About that.. I had wanted to explore, well… hello unexpected…. I tried going one way, following the water’s edge.. looking for a place but I was blocked by really dense branches, shrubs etc. I turned to retrace my steps.. and saw a lone figure coming along the upper road (the one I was trying to get to).. hello I called.. and surprise, the voice that answered was a friend…(who had just texted me, cuz she saw my car in the parking lot)

When there is a need, the Universe “answers” – sometimes two heads are better than 1…. I made it out, and then went on to walk with her for awhile… There is always yin/yang it was a wonderful experience but all the hacking through brush and hiking over rough terrain jarred my ribs again.. – smile you are on camera!!!!!! tsk tsk some people just never learn……would I do it again… yes….. life is G O O D, dragons appear everywhere.

Praying before taking action changes the outcome. Have clear wishes and do your best. Then something new will open up for you.

Be cheerful and friendly with those around you. Other people can sense how you are feeling. So, be cheerful.

Perfect Liberty 2022..24

Today was my husband’s birthday. When my iPad reminded me (I had not removed it after he passed) I was jarred from a sound sleep to one of sadness. He would have loved walking the path (shown above) somehow I know he’s found peace…

A minute of thought/prayer is worth more than an hour of talk. Psalm 141:3

Never shy away from letting someone know you care.

I love you now, forever and always

Wonderful Wednesday

an early morning by the water

Good Morning… ordinarily I would have cropped this picture,, I was interested in the fallen tree when i stopped to grab the picture – but when I saw it on the screen I was loath to cut away the quiet flowing water.. it was so beckoning. stretching its shimmer across to the distant shoreline. I left it. LOL my choice.

You can only change yourself. Before you start telling people how they should do things, think of how you can be more flexible.

winter white

Snow has melted, leaving the trees waiting patiently for the sun to warm the ground around them, and to release the awakening sap so that their new buds will begin to appear. Perhaps not as awe inspiring as the fall when they are wearing their autumn colours, but it is peaceful, quiet and there is an anticipation in the air. See the sign, I first showed it to you a couple of years back. By the end of this growing season, it will be interesting to see how much more it will be hidden by the growth around it.

When you face difficulties start with anything you can do. When you are able to grasp the situation, you will surely be able to notice something that you can do.

It looks so quiet, but it was anything but.. the woodlands was alive with sound and activity – yet in its own way, it is the “eternally quiet – that never is…_ https://youtu.be/1jFwdGho1IA my first time to notice and be aware of the grouse… I’d heard the sounds before, but never knew what it was.. Yesterday I was with someone who knew… what a Wow moment.
