Thank you to my wonderful caring friends who have been helping me while I heal. Friendships are treasures that one can’t find with a credit card, they are priceless.

Today in PL is Appreciation Day (formerly Thanksgiving) it is celebrated on the 21st of each month. We gather for a special ceremony at the church, services are held at 7 pm.

I have much to be thankful for, I have been unable to do to much for myself these past days, i.e a simple glass of water if it was out of my reach, was a total effort to attain if I had to get up out of bed and be mobile. Time heals, and with the help of my friends, I have managed, I am so blessed. I can now move around with the crutches in a much easier fashion, at times, I manage with one if the distance is short and there is furniture I can hold on to. A stool was placed in the kitchen so once I get there I can sit, reach the fridge, micro, toaster etc. and at least manage to get something to eat on my own.

It is easy to take for granted the mobility we have, I will certainly be more aware and remember to give thanks for all of my abilities and not take them for granted from now on. Appreciation is sometimes something we give lip service to, IT IS IMPORTANT.. our abilities, talents and skills are earned and when one is taken away even for a short time, “life” changes. In PL we ask that prayers start our day and end the day.

Service tonight is at 7 pm. if you cannot attend in person, please pray from home, Give thanks for the blessings received the past month, and ask for guidance for the coming weeks.

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

PS- if I lived closer I would want to get a cloth and polish the chrome on the old truck.. isn’t it a beauty!

elusive

In the cold gray of the morning light, I got myself ready to find the elusive wild turkeys… Nope, not a one did I see, but I did get some good shots in before the pending rain would start. I used the time to try different settings on this new camera of mine, and to get used to holding it, its big and I have small hands. I like “doing” .. used to enjoy getting up everyday to go to work too. Yup I’m “one of those” It is not “work” when you love what you do ..

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

Cuteness in spades

Friends!

True love transcends all boundaries.

Be careful about saying “It’s probably good enough. Wholeheartedly do what you notice, when and how you notice it.

Smiles

Energy springs from your smile. A smile makes you and others cheerful and energetic.

Whoever would be a teacher of men let him begin by teaching himself before teaching others; and let him teach by example before teaching by word. for he who teaches himself and rectifies his own ways is more deserving of respect and reverence than he who would teach others and rectify their ways.

Kahlil Gibran

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.

run a mile, share a smile!!

Changes

Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Those who improve with age embrace the power of personal growth and personal achievement and begin to replace youth with wisdom, innocence with understanding, and lack of purpose with self actualization.

In PL we strive to live in the present, to be in the moment. When I arrived to find the thrasher had been by to clear the overgrown brush .. it was a bit of a shock at first. All the lush vegetation had been cut back, and most of it taken off to where-ever … I know it is important to maintain a balance, especially we have had such dry hot weather, lots of humidity and little rain. Still it was an adjustment. But.. in life, adjust we must.

Be careful about saying “It’s probably good enough” Wholeheartedly do what you notice, when and how you notice it.

The thrasher is ruthless, it begins its journey and removes and takes down anything that is in its path. What was, is no longer, it is pulled out by the roots, or simply shredded into pieces. Nature will regroup, simply pause to asses and then rebuild. It began to rain, halfway up the road, so I turned back, but not before I got some wonderful wood pieces for my “collection” There is always a positive, we cannot have one without the other.

that’s life folks!
Till soon

woody woodpecker

My first glimpse of a woodpecker at the feeders. I did my best to be patient, to wait, be ready, but he/she was having none of it.

I’m happy to report that I’ve started to see the crows again, not many, but one here and there.. I have missed them and look forward to their return.

different scenery

a Trans Alpine Trip by train from Christchurch NZ to Greymouth. – Photos Shirley Keen

Everything here is soooo green, lush and over grown, when I saw Shirley’s photos from her trip she was just on, I asked to share a few with you. Isn’t the world a wonderful place, the geography is so different .. depending on where you are on the “globe”

Life is what we make it.

Don’t think overly about people. Instead of being excessively concerned about others, focus on what you should do.

I had wonderful “ladies day” outing, we had lunch at a cafe/restaurant on the canal, ate out by the water. I didn’t intend for it to happen but I have a golden glow that wasn’t there earlier. The sun was out, there was a breeze, company was exceptional, food was good.. hey.. Life is Good!

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.

Perfect Liberty 2016.16

Reality is, we are all in this together

love, compassion, understanding and respect

ingredients important to making a positive change

focus, prayer and or meditations

on loving, sharing and caring moments

we can do this, our ambition, our goal, world peace

PL Precept #11 – always be with God.
