Always think that “everything will work out” When you allow yourself to be pessimistic, your thought and actions become sluggish. Approach everything optimistically without hesitating.

A HOME is a special place. A door welcomes you home. This picture tells a story, each one of you will discover it in your own way. The first time I walked through a door of such a “home”.. I was struck with the simplicity of the building, and overwhelmed by the “life” it contained.
I had peaked into the window.. and I saw right through to the yard out back. Simplicity, sturdy, provided the necessity, protection from the elements, and those who shared the insides, appreciated and enjoyed the comfort it provided. Gratitude for the essentials in life.
A heart felt thank you, to the wonderful friend who thought to send me this photo when it was found. She sent me a few.. which I will share with you in time.. this one was the gem that my eyes found and stayed on when the package arrived.
the body’s message loud and clear, STOP, don’t move, lie down,close your eyes, focus on your breathing. Let the swirling debris of sediment settle fill the cracks, and allow the mind time to regroup and fall where it may.
STOP trying to introduce brilliant, vibrant and chaotic energy into the reality of NOW. There is a world of discovery at your feet, stop looking into the distance, there is a whole world to be discovered and rediscovered.
With all the negativity of late in the press, media and being spoken and conversed about…. my brain needed a change of venue.
I have a very special friend, who in introducing me to the America he knows, sent me a video that stirred my emotions and left me wanting more. I searched YouTube and found this video by Ann M. Wolf. I would like to share it with you. please feel free to pass on having a look, if it is not of interest to you.
https://youtu.be/9-Lf9WTiawQ This is a video on the flag folding ceremony of the flag of the United States of America. It was done as a dedication to Honor Guards and the fallen from across America.
Church service today is at 10 a.m. and I believe that Reverend Eugene is going to try to send out a video of same.
There will always be a way. If you persist and be creative without giving up, you will find solutions that you had not considered before.
PL Precept #20 Live maintaining equilibrium between mind and matter.
Thanks Chris for permission to use this photo, it reminded me of the many places that I explored with my husband during the lazy summer days of June, July… we’d seek out these out of the way, off the main road little pieces of paradise.
Not one of the trees in the wilderness are the same, each finds its place in the sun and thrives the best it can. Together they present a unified front, against a backdrop of blues skies and fluffy sculptures of cloud.
The cooling waters and unique shoreline, all combine to welcome the visitor, with awe inspiring vistas. Crystal clear air, a melody of natures songs filter through the day. It is peaceful, and when we take time to simply BE in this environment, are inner smile expands.. Our cares, our concerns vanish..
PL Precept # 11 Always be with God.
It is only natural that you are different from others. Each of us has our own way of thinking and our own individual lifestyles. That’s what makes life interesting.
Same bed, different bed cover, same lazy laid back whippet …Nothing new goes down, without his checking it out, for comfort. Ceiling fan is over head, he is content.. I have permission to leave on my errands.
When something comes to mind, do it right away. The moment that you notice, something is the best time to take care of it. IF YOU REACT QUICKLY, YOUR LIFE WILL BE MORE EFFICIENT.
Where can I go to hide.. so lush, so mysterious. … what sights and sounds will I find, will my sense be overwhelmed… gosh.. this is somewhere to discover… Think I’ll start a bucket list.
What reason to hide..non really… but there are times.. when I want to disappear for awhile.. (from day to day) and explore another reality in this wonderful world of ours.
BC is a long way from home. I never knew such a wonderful place existed, have any of you ever been ? if so, can you tell me about it?
Lately it has been a time of discovery, new and old experiences, have taken on new meaning, new depth, and my analytical mind is processing it all. Since my health related problems seem to be rectifying themselves I am feeling the slow return of my “old” self.. the one that loved exploring and adding to my already plentiful life experience.
I want to relearn, quiet, meditation, and nature in all its many forms. Life is for living, life is for sharing, life is beautiful. Travel with me.. let’s share and grow in LOVE for life. Make it a commitment.
PL Precept # 7 Everything exists in relativity.
I don’t know where I got the picture it was in my files. I suspect Pinterest.
I’m usually easy going, I do have an opinion, when asked, I have always done my best to be honest with my reply, if I disagree, I tend to soften my stand, unless it is something that really is important.
Today I was asked about whether or not our church should open for Thanksgiving service on the 21st. Contrary to what was said by someone who does not come to the church at all, I feel it should be open for those who would like to attend, observing of course, social distancing, and the wearing of a face mask. Because our members are scattered all across Canada, the actual numbers who can or would physically attend has always been low in number.
Those of us who find comfort in being in the church, some have been with the church since it was built. (the new one).. It is our home, our sanctuary . PL has always been unique in how it offers personal guidance responding to problems of our every day lives.
It is through consultations given by PL ministers, the personal guidance tailored to the individual character and situation that makes PL such a bonding experience.
That the question even needed to be asked.. (.. WOW..) Needless to say, I disagreed with the statement that we stay closed, … and I spoke out. These past weeks have made me realize, that too often, doors are closed, and the support that should be available is withdrawn.
Ministers are front line care givers. Not only the physical body needs to be addressed, now more then ever, we need to feed, heal and nurture our spirits.
There are days when getting back under the covers seems to be the best course of action .. however, there is always someone in the “crowd” that has different ideas.
With the sun making its early morning appearance, comes the moment when the human decides its time to get up. Does that mean we have to do likewise? Guess it does. The promise is for very hot and humid weather today.. meaning. .. an early morning “walk/run”
Use things for what they are meant for. Everything has a purpose. Let’s use things to their fullest potential.

The reward is often in the taking of the risk, or stepping out into the day. Wake up and live each moment of your day.
As a diabetic I have learned to never take for granted that what works today, will work tomorrow. We, like the Universe are always changing. Recently, you all know that due to my meds. I had a few days/weeks of oops and wow, darn, and golly.
Changes were made, and the waves took on a more realistic ebb and flow. However, it is never that simple. All the other pieces of “me” then have to adjust to the new ripples in what can be a very calm environment. One drug was changed, to be replaced by two. Sounds simple enough, and it will be once the body adjust. Meanwhile..we practice patience and relearn to stand still while what needs to happen .. happens.
It is in these times, that we give thanks, for the blessings we have had, and the love and the friendships that we have had enrich our lives over the seasons.
Let’s find the joy in everything. Are you looking for things to complain about> Let’s change our perspective and live a cheerful and joyful life.

Can we disappear, yes from view maybe, but from ourselves.. no. never.
Today is another day in our lives. For some, you are still enjoying a long week-end. for others it is back to a work week. Whatever, where ever you are. May you be blessed with the Universal love that surrounds us all.
The above picture immediately reminded of a dream I had years ago. Yes the picture took me back to a hike that my Mother had organized when she was a leader in CGIT, (Canadian Girls in Training) My Dad had come with us to share in the experience and take pictures. Taking pictures was his passion, this picture is much like the interpretation of the moment, he would have shared,
Canadian Girls in Training, or CGIT, is a church-based program for girls and young women aged 11–17 throughout Canada. Girls who join the CGIT vow to “Cherish Health, Seek Truth, Know God, Serve Others and thus, with [Jesus’] help, become the girl God would have me be”. (Wikipedia)
My education began at an early age (to be of service, and dedicate my life to helping and being there for others) I don’t know why Dave chose to publish the photo in these muted tones, but he did and for me it was breath taking. I wanted to share this picture of his for two reason.. one because I found it to be so touching and poignant. And 2, I feel it will “talk” to others in a way, words can’t.
Good or Bad it is your mirror. Sincere expressions invite good results, but insincere expressions can lead to unexpected trouble.

The hike was in the Gatineau Hills, Quebec, Canada, the photo Dave took was in Pennsylvania. USA =^_^=
Yesterday, the back yard was glorious in bloom with the new buds from the magnolia. This morning I was out raking up all the fallen petals at 5 a.m. before the heat of the day. Nothing ever stays the same. Enjoy every moment of your day, you can only live it once.
When you put your whole heart into things, you will be able to notice the sincere acts of others in the subtle things they do, and appreciate them that much more.
