Stir Fry Friday

we never know just where a road will lead, even when there is a sign
who we will meet and what they will have to say
some mind their own business and really don’t care to interact at all

Free yourself from being overly attached. Overthinking hinders ideas and actions.

Perfect Liberty 2021.22

Do your best today, have a great day, smile a lot.. and always.. have caring kind thoughts for those around you.

imperfections are part of life – Q

crows, snow and a door

I started the day with the thought that I would go on a door expedition. However that thought was swept away by the constant shifting of the winds and drifting snow/rain. We see a lot of door exteriors, this is the interior view of a lonely door. It doesn’t get used much except to hold left over “this and that” from my creative moments.

This morning the crows dined on freshly baked, chicken hearts, giblets and liver. My babies (whippets) got to have the nutritious gravy with their kibble. During these times of restraints and “forced” isolation, I find that being in and with nature is very calming.

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

PL Principle # 2 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.

PL Principle # 3 I will live with a mind of appreciation towards others and things.

PL 21 Principles.

I am reminded every day of how blessed I am to have the wonderful friends that I have around me, and how when I meet strangers while in nature, they smile, and always have a sunny greeting to call out. Not only do the birds sing, and call out to each other, but there is children’s laughter, and the joy of people who have come to commune with nature. Everyone stays respectfully distant, and except for the odd person, all wear masks if they are going to be coming by or past you. It’s a new year. and a new way of BEING.

church on the 21st.!

but really? we are on lock down!

We all got the same e-mail last night.. I did late last night.. Read and re read the message, yes, there will be a service this Thursday on the 21st. We know it is last minute, and that most of us are simply unable to attend. Here is where we put into practice what we did the other night, when I held an evening service. If you are unable to attend, please join us at 7 pm EST. while Rev. E. performs the special service. It is called service of Appreciation.

Cast your mind to the church, find your seat, and sit quietly while others gather in their homes to join us. Service will start at 7, begin with your salutation, move on to reading your PL prayer, then sit in quiet reflection while Rev E performs the Appreciation ceremony. spending time with us, in quiet prayer is all we can ask for at this time.. The positive and healing energy of the group will surround you even if you are miles away from the physical church. God is with us everywhere, God is in the air we breathe and in all that we see, feel and do. Be mindful.

But we are here together, and we will support one an other. THERE IS ALWAYS A WAY!

Use any results, good or bad, as a stepping stone. All outcomes, whether positive or negative are important experiences. Let’s use them wisely for our our future progress.

Stay safe, be well, share a smile and a virtual hug with someone special today!

crow/raven

watchful, sharp powerful foresight- change, transformation, prophecy and good luck

I’ve never met a crow/raven that I have not fallen in love with. Today, I was in the right place at the right time, I saw one, and then another, it was kismet. For me they symbolize intelligence, flexibility and destiny.

Ebony feathered wonders. The are very vocal, usually having a lot to say. I saw them in the parking lot of a McDonalds… Yes I was picking up my black iced coffee, no cream, no sugar. (for those of you who know my need for cold coffee when driving) Then at Dewberry Trail, the sky was full of crows, they were in the tree branches .. my first time, in all my visits there to actually see them there.

Throughout history, these birds have been portrayed as spirits and divine messengers. I would like to think, they are letting me know// something good is going to happen! Crows are not afraid of dealing with something new (unknown). Entering into this new year, we can all take a page from their chapter on optimism.

It’s Okay, God is watching over you. Things turn out for the best. Don’t be captured by momentary troubles but continue doing everything with sincerity.

Everyone has a good side. Make effort to see everyone’s good side. You will become more open minded and your ability to see the good in others will increase.

Stuff happens

Look at it.. its already got the rust on it.. its perfect for my collection… OK… I left it there, it was too big to haul away anyway =^_^= Couldn’t help but think the driver couldn’t have been too happy …

Do everything willingly and joyfully. Your upbeat attitude will make things more cheerful and enjoyable.

Tomorrow, Monday 18th. we start a new week! Make it a good one!

gotcha!

Who knew. Not me, I’m a novice on what happens in the woods during a snow storm. I found out today, the heavy snow had blanketed most of the feeders. The cold, wet, thaw, freeze of the last 48 hours, also brought down weak limbs. To this end I found several of the feeders on the ground, one very damaged, and the other not so bad, but in need of attention.

I sent myself to clearing off the snow, and putting out fresh seed so that the now hovering birds could eat, while I righted the refilled the feeders that had suffered during the storm.

this heavy feeder was the one that had been on the limb that came down during the storm. I was fortunate that I was able to get a snowshoe enthusiast who came by with his young son to help me get it back up on a sturdier limb. The man had to put his son on his shoulders, so that we could hang the first S hook. Fortunately I had gone to the store a few days ago and stocked up on the larger S hooks. I had no idea at the time why I had a need to acquire them.. The Universe knew… they sure came in handy today.
I use a variety of containers, so that i can offer an assortment of food. The stump on the left had to be cleared of snow so that the black sunflower seeds and peanuts could be scattered there for the birds to drop down and gather up.

At the Mer Bleue site, I was thrilled to see a bird that till that moment I had not seen, a Hoary red poll. When I get a picture I will share it with you.

Now that the birds have been fed. It is my turn, home made beef bone soup with fresh veggies and dried Chinese mushrooms. Yum

special prayers 7:pm

10:12 and it is still snowing – Nikon doesn’t like being outside when it is snowing.

Good morning everyone. After reading my incoming this morning, and taking a few calls .. I have decided that this evening I will do special prayers at 7:pm EST. I will begin with the PL Prayer, and then do a short prayer, giving thanks and appreciation for all that we have experienced since the start of the new year. For the friends in the community that are dealing with extra “stress” challenges/opportunities, I will ask that the spirit of calm, and gentle goodness surround us while we pray for our loved ones and our concerns.

PL Precept # 11 Always be with God.

Please set aside a good twenty minutes. Find a place where you can sit comfortably , those of you with your own Omitama or Aramitama can do your usual salutation. Then sit quitely and gather your thoughts. We will begin with the PL Prayer, and then after a few seconds of quiet reflection, I will begin the special prayer … Before standing and returning to your normal activities, please take the time, to say “thank you” and to send your love/caring thoughts to those who have joined in our prayers.

Thank you everyone for sharing in this special evening of prayer.

PL Precept # 10 Love yourself and others.

PL Precept # 15 All is a mirror

Hospitals are crowded, people we know and don’t know are stressed and anxious. Let us join together in positive action. Let us Pray.

If you are reading this and can translate it for me in Portuguese for our members in Brazil, it will be much appreciated.

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.

Perfect Liberty 2021.16

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.
