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.

Reality is, we are all in this together

on loving, sharing and caring moments

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

The past

The past was not that long ago. Yet in many ways, it is a very distant past. How we communicated, and how relationships, friendships/work related, were formed, was also very different from how it is today. Who knew back then, that our means of communicating would be so drastically changed.

Today is the 11th day of January. Each 11th of every month, we in PL have a monthly service/ceremony Ancestors’ Day . Through this ceremony we express our gratitude for the love and virtues of our ancestors. When I first was told about Ancestors’ day and asked for more of an explanation, .. I was told it is not just family, but anyone who has influenced or been part of your life, contributed to who you are today.

It is only as I have progressed along this “road” that I have realized just how much certain people have touched my life. People that at the time, I did not (I thought) cared for or had any impact on me. Now I do see I was influenced, something in my behaviour or way of seeing “life” was introduced or became part of “me” .. imprinted if you will.. in my subconscious.

When I first learned to use a PBX, that switchboard you see above (picture upper left) I didn’t realize how it enabled me to learn to multi task, and gave me in-depth hands on knowledge that would serve me so well in later life situations. The Underwood typewriter, which was the typewriter that I learned to type on, taught me how to use a keyboard so that as the technologies changed, the basic finger skills I learned enabled me to fit in, in almost any office environment.

It is in accumulating new skills, & learning to use these applications in different environments that round off our skill sets. Every time we step into a new “situation”, embrace the opportunity for learning, we grow. Our Ancestors did the same, they lived, learned, and passed on their “‘gifts” for us to learn from, so we could live more fruitful and fulfilling lives.

Treasure each moment in time. Life is a continuation of “Now”. Treasure each and every moment as it comes, so that you can live your life as fully as possible without regrets.

Perfect Liberty 2016.10

The past leads to Now, and Now leads to the future. Life is an accumulation of moments. Cherish each one.

Did you learn to type 65 wpm? Were you introduced to a dictaphone? Imagine the days when multiple copies meant “carbon paper” =^_^=

I spent a good part of yesterday looking for something. I really looked everywhere, walked around outside to see if it had fallen from my pocket. Checked my coat pockets many times, emptied my purse, I was determined. No dog muzzle. So after another search this morning, I gave in and ordered another one for curb side pick up. I wanted to take something out to the car, so had to grab my purse which I had emptied twice, to find my keys.. …. … guess what was hanging from the purse strap. Like Duh! SMILE everyone.. today we SMILE, and SMILE some more. =^_^=

As Pooh would say.. “have some honey” =^_^=

choices

In life we are often faced with having to make a decision, take the turn to the left, follow the road straight ahead or turn right. When faced with such a decision, do you ponder what road to take, or let your instincts guide you? In the wooded area that I was in this morning, when I saw people heading out on their adventure, I noticed that many of them seemed to know just where they wanted to go, what direction to head out on.

Myself, I didn’t venture past where I was tending the feeders. I was intent on waiting for and watching for the blue jays. During my time there, I noticed that when there was little to no activity in the parking lot, the birds would somehow know that there would be no “traffic” and they would dive down, swooping in from the tall tree tops. To experience this I had to practice, standing still. Each time I go, and the more times I practice being still, the easier it is getting for me.

Right now, in many of the churches we can only visit by appointment to ensure social distancing can be maintained. Standing still in the middle of a woodland “space”… is much like the quiet stillness that can envelope you when you are in church. Something magical happens. our sense are fine tuned.

Improve yourself to have a kinder heart. Do what you can to be caring and considerate to make others happy.

breakfast meeting place

Good morning. I thought I’d share with you my breakfast nook. When I arrive and park, I enter the woodlands where you see the big rock, and the path divides. My feeder tables are down the trail on the right. When families come, they stop there to watch and/or feed the birds.
With the forecast for heavy rains, starting up this afternoon and lasting into tomorrow.. warnings are of record rain, and possible flooding! I took myself off there this morning to top up the feeders. As many of you know, being out in nature, listening to the birds, and basically just being with them.. is very therapeutic.

Good or bad it is our mirror. Sincere expressions invite good results, but insincere expressions can lead to unexpected trouble.

Our prayers, one by one, can lead to world peace. A sincere prayer will always be answered. Let’s continue to pray for World Peace from the bottom of our hearts.

Perfect Liberty 2016.1.

Best wishes to each and everyone of you. Whatever your celebration, or time you spend over the next while, be happy, life is good, we have each other! Near or far, I send love to each and every one of YOU. Now and Always. Q

What’s up?

The faces one must deal with, when planning on going out without them

Put your whole heart into everything and express your individuality. When you put your whole heart into expressing yourself your true beauty will shine through.

expressions

It is important to be assertive, but maintaining harmony is just as important. Say what is on your mind clearly, but don’t be overly attached to your views. Respect the points of view of others and always seek to find a happy medium,

I see personalities in each tree I meet. Depending on the time of day, where the sun is, how the shadows play on their textured bark…I’ve never come across a tree that I haven’t liked. Humans are the same. =^_^= some are easier to spend time with then others…. but everyone has the potential of being someone you can learn from, share with, and yes, even be friends with.

Learn to be a person who welcomes change, appreciate the journey you’ve been on. Life is to be lived.

Love is the elixir of life.

Happy Oct. 30th.

lanterns from the garden

Years ago I saw this plant and knew I had to have some in my garden. Now I have a wonderful bed of lanterns, so pleasing to the eye. It was my friend Eartha tho’ who took the initiative to actually get a picture before the frost comes and puts them all to bed for the winter. Thank you Eartha.

We all have good intentions, we all have creative ideas, and we all have at times missed out on our opportunities to follow through. That is why I have such an appreciation for the difference and the uniqueness of my friends. Life is so much richer and fuller when we embrace “new” encounters/situations. I give thanks everyday for my friends, I am so blessed,

New encounters can help you change Be up for anything even if its out of your comfort zone. This is a chance for you to improve yourself as a human being.

We are all facing the challenge this year on how we will celebrate (Hallows Eve) Halloween. A time when many enjoy the crazy silly ways we can welcome the coming season, and say good-bye to the summer. In Canada we already have had Thanksgiving, but our neighbours in the States, are preparing for theirs. Pumpkins, and all the trimmings of that holiday are bountiful in the shops and outlets. Fall is a brilliant season!!

However you decide to spend this week-end.. be safe, be careful and stay well.
