That day we walked back to the car, after being told that we had an aggressive cancer in our lives. I remember looking into the darkness of the floor of the wooded area, near where our truck was parked.

For some reason, this  patch of land was a place that I revisited often over the months that followed.  No, not physically, but in my mind’s eye.  I didn’t see flowers if they were blooming, it was the greenery, the trees, the open spaces between  them.

The shadows that danced across the snow-covered floor between the trees, always I saw how nature blended and intermingled.  I didn’t know it at the time, but I feel it now.  As time passes, I miss my husband’s physical presence more and more, I feel him and hear his words in the strangest of places, or in the  landscapes I see that I pass along the way to “wherever”.

The memory of our “togetherness” is intertwined with the nature that I see all around me.  Like the seasons, and the changing skies.  We are no longer as we were, but always, we will BE…  Unconditional love, is happiness, tears, joy and sorrow.  What a blessing to have been granted the experience of a love that while of this earth,  blossomed into forever.

A Thankful Person will Grow as an Individual

When you are able to have a thankful attitude, you will be blessed with good intuition and more enthusiasm, which will continue to move things in a positive direction.

Thanksgiving -Month of May

23c365f6af44dd8272a6b5fd1d1f9938

Good Morning on May 21st, which to those of us practicing living in Perfect Liberty is the day we celebrate with a special service that offers up our thanks for the blessings we received during the month.

A thankful heart, is one that will enjoy happiness and the vibrant world around us.

I must say from the number of e-mails I received on yesterday’s post, many of  you have not heard or had necessarily favourable encounters with personnel from the agency that was mentioned in yesterday’s blog.

After reading some of your comments and responses, I reflected back, and honestly I can find no negatives with our experience. LOL would I do it again, no, but  everyone we met was helpful, and in no way gave us any reason to change our “day off”  happy feeling.  It is like… you are going to head out on an excursion with a friend, you need some cash,  you stop in at a bank, find their machine is down and you have to go inside to deal with a teller.  there is a line up, so you have to slow down and just wait your turn.  You deal with it.

The problem in our society is we want things to work like they always do, and we want to hurry up and get on our way, or get  on with what we are doing.  Distractions can be annoying, but they need not be.. if we are presented with a challenge, it is an opportunity to discover why the Universe brought our frenetic pace to a stop.  I was on a holiday, these young men/women working were stuck in that building working a shift. The sunshine and fresh air that was beckoning was not in their reach till after their shift, and dear knows what responsibilities they had once their work day was over.

Life can be colourful or it can be bleak.  It is after all art of our making.  We create the thoughts, it is our decision to  enjoy a moment or to be dragged down by circumstances.   During the PL Thanksgiving Services, we, members humbly express our appreciation to God for all 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 the teachings of PL. and to share this love/faith  wholeheartedly with others.

Why is it that we are so often wanting things to be just right all the time, as an artist I know that some of my best pieces came about because I made mistakes that meant I had to pause, reflect and review, then action .. usually always in a different direction, giving what I was doing greater depth.

Service this evening at 7 pm. in all PL churches everywhere.

being thankful

easter IslandI remember being totally fascinated and captivated by the story of Easter Island.  I was lost in the mystery of it all.  I dreamed of travelling there to see the giants for myself.  I never did, instead as i made my way in life, I found that my life itself was full of mysteries , my own wonders at the complexities in life, How I could love so much and enjoy so much yet seem to always be “odd person out”

Even when I hurt, or feeling sad and down, they were feelings that I seemed to revel in, I basked in the emotions that engulfed me and  examined how they made me feel and  how I got there. They were lessons,  I went through the heartbreak of wanting so much for someone to care, and not recognizing that a relationship is based on BOTH parties being of the same mind.

It takes living the experience to learn the value of the lesson taught.  I have been blessed with many lessons in life. Each lesson has made me a much stronger and independent woman.  It is in paying attention to each and every moment of our lives that we grow, that we blossom, unfold and mature into the person we become.  In a lifetime, we continue to experience the many changes and lessons until it is time for us to quietly transition to another state of BEING.

When we truly appreciate all that we have lived, and what IS, Then and only then will we find true happiness.  Give thanks every day for the wonders in life that have blessed you during your lifetime.  To every negative there is a positive. Kindness and love for another are gifts to be treasured.  I give thanks for each and everyone of you, you are so very appreciated.
