shades of white

Bet I didn't fool you  at all, I snuck in a picture of rust.  I know.  Sometimes after a sleep, the marbles don't always nestle back into their beds right side up. =^_^=

Yes for those of us living where we have distinct seasons, the coming months will give us many varieties of ways to show off our whites. Let’s make it fun, journal or capture the special whites.. after all, white does come in many shades, and each one of us will have a different appreciation of the hues and vistas we come across.

Even if you have done it many times before, put your full heart into it. (Makoto) When we are doing something, especially if it’s a small or easy task, we tend to get sloppy. Let’s put our whole heart into everything we do, even if its something as simple as pushing a button.

Peace day

Always live with World Peace in your Heart. Each and every one of your actions can inspire peace within your family, your community and the world around you. This peace will eventually help lead to World Peace.

Perfect Liberty 2019,1

Today we will begin the Day of Peace ceremony at 10: a.m. followed by our regular Sunday service. Through the Day of Peace ceremony, we pray for World Peace and dedicate ourselves to live as peaceful human beings in our own worlds which include our home, school, work and community.

Everyone is welcome, not everyone can come to the church itself, if there is no church near you, we invite you to join us in prayer at 10: a.m. with a moment of silence and prayer of your own, committing to helping in the attaining of world peace. Love begins at home. within ourselves.

disappointments

Disappointments happen. Often, a lot, no matter, they happen, and when they do, you feel a certain loss. The dictionary defines it ” sadness or displeasure caused by the non fulfillment of one’s hopes or expectations” “a disappointing person or thing”

It happens, and we can either shut ourselves away from the human race and try to avoid any other such moments, or we move on. In PL we learn to move on, we accept it happened, and learn from the experience.

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

Perfect Liberty Principle # 2

See, it is my decision to let it ruin my otherwise happy day, or to change direction, move on, and share time and space with “happy” moments/friends, and or, create new interests, there is a whole world to discover.

Always, the ball is ours, we own the results of our choices,

I will live with a mind of appreciation toward others and things.

PL Principle #3

It is early in the day, there are so many possibilities before us, enjoy your day, may it be productive and happy.

Thanksgiving

Time to reflect on all that has been happening in our lives. How far we have come since the year began. In PL, we give special thanks for all of life’s lessons, each moment is a new experience and a new awareness.

We, members, humbly express our appreciation to God and to Oshieoya-sama for the blessings of the past month and sincerely ask to be guided and protected by the grace of Oyashikiri in the coming month. We renew our determination to follow and practice our individual Miosie (Divine instructions) and to wholeheartedly share our faith with others.

Thursday doors

Good Thursday morning all. Three of the pictures were taken by a friend in Michigan, he is a very kind and talented individual, he knows of my “passion” for old buildings and doors”. The bright Xmas door is my latest find from the Dollar Tree (stores located here and in the States)

For more pictures of doors, and to follow https://miscellaneousmusingsofamiddleagedmind.wordpress.com/2019/11/14/thursday-doors-november-14-2019/ Norm has a feature every Thursday, he is the brain child of Thursday Doors.

We had a great meeting yesterday at the Doll Club, even managed to raise some money for the House of Lazarus in Mountain. (food bank) Remember to give when you can.

Always live life with a smile, life is no longer a trial when we believe.

Being considerate of others is just as important as what works for you. Always be mindful of the situations of others not just your own. To have a good relationship with those around you always think of what is important to them too.

11.11.19

The early morning light, was not going to get any brighter, yet I found the sight of the single tree still standing with its crisp mantle of dusty orange leaves, appealing.

falling snow invites the visitor to linger

I found today to be beautiful, it was moody, it was stirring, most of all it was full of expressions waiting to be discovered.

Appreciate the Makoto (sincerity) of the people who came before you. Everything we have today was built upon the hard work of our ancestors and the people who came before us. Always remember to be thankful and humble and continue to build on their past successes.

Perfect Liberty 2019,11

The 11th. Ancestors day ceremony, is one of my favourites, today’s service was powerful

Voices in unison we prayed, heads bent in reverence and respect for our loved ones, and those who came forward and went into battle to keep us all free from those who would do us harm.

Where-ever you are in the world, please continue to pray for world peace.

Please note that tomorrow, I am taking my “unreliable” “malfunctioning” PC back to the store for a check up. I will be back asap.

enthusiasm

A view of winter past

.. this view is from Michigan.. Friends of mine, who live in Michigan, shared this picture with me last year.

Yes, I could have gone out and shot a picture of the lovely snow on my tree branches and in my back yard.. but my skyline is a cold overcast gray. Choices.

My day starts with reading of PL’s reminder of the day. (From PL calendar*)

Your enthusiasm will pave the way. Your enthusiasm will fuel your efforts and creativity and will spread it to those around you, driving new developments.

Perfect Liberty 2019.7

When we start the day with a purpose, it helps us make choices throughout the day. Choices help us to grow. If we make one that doesn’t exactly work out as we had planned, than we simply learn from the experience, and move along. There are no bad days, busy days yes, living each moment with positive action, is always rewarding. Life is living, and living IS life.

In sickness and in health, till death do us part.

Oyashikiri

For those interested, the 2020 calendars are out, they make great gifts to friends, the cost will be the same as it was last year. If your purchasing a number of them and cannot pick them up at the church, there will likely be a postage cost …
