We are faced with choices every day.

Day 13 of PL Calendar   There will always be a way

As long as you are serious, there Is no reason for you to give up.  Move forward one step at a time and thing will always turn out for the best.

Life is Art

Mother Nature 4.27.17

I came, and went, laughed, cried, blossomed and flew away.

You missed that moment, didn’t you?

A moment comes, and vanishes, within seconds,

true intentions come from the heart

no day is like another

a moment lost in anger

is time not lived in happiness

with winter comes a calming bliss

purity and stillness

no matter the chaos around us

when we are present in every way

a moment is never missed

life is what we make of it

choices we make,

be happy today, make it a special day

why, because you can!

Thursday moment

 

IMG_1588 Ireland Belfast

A window that captures a moment in time

a moment long-lived, yet, now lost in time

Took a trip to Ireland, for this moment to happen

that was yesterday, this is today.

Today, when I saw the colours,  I thought of Brazil

two places I have never been

Life is “funny” that way

in an instant we can travel the globe

never leaving home,

why, because home is where your heart is.

mine is alive and well, still beating strong,

the window is till in Ireland,

 the moment has passed

but the thoughtful moment of inspiration,

a gift, long to be remembered

Q

past, present, they are all the same, to live in the now, we gather it all, so that today will be an even better day, for one and all.  You are truly loved, now and always.

PL Precept # 10   Love yourself and Others

Here we go.  Tim Horton’s in Ireland. No more can we say, “only in Canada” the world has changed so much over the years.  What hasn’t changed is the bond of friendship that is ongoing, and is built and groomed with unconditional love.  Acceptance, and respect.

Yesterday in PL, being the first of the month, we celebrated with the PL service of Peace.  Every month, on the 1st day of the month. at 10 a.m. all over the world where there is a church,  or a member of  PL, time is made to pray for world peace.  Through the service at the church we pray for World Peace and rededicate ourselves to live as a peaceful human being, in our own worlds, which includes, our home, school, work and communities.

When we love with makoto “sincerity” and dedication of purpose, we are blessed with love in our lives that continues to shine, forever and always.  It is not measured in earthly ways, days, months, years, it is, simply life itself. Like breathing in and out. we don’t count how often we breathe in and out during our days and nights, we just Breathe …. Love should be in our action, words and hearts.  Always.

Life is Art.  PL Precept #1

Harmony leads to world peace

reminder. Pick up your 2019 calendar at the church, if you are unable to get to the church and would like one, contact me  thank you, obrigada/o

 

Well well well

IMG_5174Well,well,well…

Bom dia, feliz sexta feira, happy Friday everyone.

What is with the well, well, well…  my reaction to a news story this morning, where one police officer shot another officer. Well, well, well, really, I can’t go beyond my reaction. It is  stunner, perhaps because in my past law enforcement was part of my life, I don’t know.  I have been away from this field for too many year, to know what the climate is like these days.  This is life isn’t it, we are calmly going about our daily business, when out of the blue, you hear something, or see something, that startles, or gives you cause for pause.

Life is happening all around us, some we hear about,, some we don’t, other times, it is right before us, and we never see it, or know that it is happening. But it is. A reminder that we don’t know what is around that corner, we know NOW. For myself, I know that I have to focus more on the now, be focused/aware, it is a fine art, and one that needs practicing every day.

PL calendar day 30     Use your results to make the next time even better

Whether things turn out perfectly or not, the important thing is to take what you’ve learned and apply it the net time.

ps. my sister did the above artwork, I had not seen it before, it was one of her first attempts at working with a new medium. It is so colourful and joyful.  It is giving me a smile, hope you catch it and pass it on.  *wink.*  Smile everyone, it is Friday.

Zen moments

image2Looking out at animals calmly enjoying their time in the pasture.

Their only thought is to BE.

Not feeling 100% I took to my bed early, I thought I would listen to my body, and simply lie down.

Life has a way of getting in the way.

PL calendar day 27

Put all of your effort into the NOW.

You can only do your absolute best right this moment; not in the past, not in the future, but NOW
