introduction cards

Remember when the calling card was the way we introduced ourselves to people we met. Especially when making our way in the business world, your calling card was a way of saying, hi, this is who I am.

Tonight, I have been cleaning out again, this led me to opening a box that had an old card holder in it. Wow, each and every card held a memory or story of an encounter made years ago. Some contacts, I remember very clearly, and others not so much, yet each were part of that particular phase of my adventure here on earth.

While working I took advantage of my home time to listen to old gospel songs, by Ernie Haase & signature Sound https://youtu.be/cqTPok10HqQ

The bass singer Tim Duncan was an amazing singer. The quartet was always upbeat and made music in a way that to me was toe tapping and joyful. They made their performances so “fun”, to do that they had to apply a dedicated talent to their craft.

This reminds me that so much of what we do, daily, is live our lives as best we can, PL calendar day 15 – A cheerful Smile and expression makes everyone around you happy.

When you do everything with a smile, not only you but the the people around you will feel good. Always remember to put on a happy face.

Godmother of Rock and roll, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, guitarist,singer,songwriter, she was the first artist to chart with spiritual recordings due to her signature blend of gospel with secular rhythms.  she was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 2007. (pbs.org)

History is what designed today, our acceptance  and appreciation for what was, will help balance how we progress in handling the challenges of living in the world we are in right now.  Reflect on what was considered then, to be very modern, or the norm, and the adversity and struggles of our ancestors….  In 24 hours, today will be history.

Happy start of a new week

Good Morning Everyone….

Time to hit the road, time to travel along a  route not followed before. Finding the secondary roads that will lead past delightful vistas that will please the visual senses.  There was a time when cars did not have air conditioning, we drove with the windows down.  We could smell the various odours our climate brings to our faculties that carry the “notes” to the brain. The heat on the dusty roads, the vegetation parched waiting for rain, or the moisture from the lake wafting   up so that for the seconds we pass, we smell the algae, hear the frogs, even see fish leaping out of the water, depending on how close we were to t he water’s edge.  How different our rides were, we seldom went by water on a hot day without seeing boats, and people near or on the water participating in water activities.  Enjoying the outdoors was what the summer days were all about.

Now it just isn’t the same, super highways and main roads take us away from the populated areas, and when we do pass playgrounds, picnic areas, and lakes, often they are  void of people.  Where is everyone, and what are they doing?  Not only that often when we drive by farmland, I’m saddened to see bare grazing land, and often scenes like this.

and this, I can’t help but wonder at what the building was like in another time, and how full of laughter,tears and sorrows must have transpired for it to now be but a memory.

Let us start today dear friends, to live with our best intentions to make this a week a time to remember. Lets say thank you and show appreciation for the people who are close to us. Give thanks for the moments shared as we make our way on this road of life.  It is our journey and we are never alone.

In response to your requests, here are a couple of toe tappers =^_^=  and I do agree with you all, no matter your personal beliefs, the words and feelings of these tunes leave you JOYFUL ..

R your convictions being tested

winding road

There are days when the way ahead is just so darn daunting.  You know you need to continue and persevere, yet you seem to be encountering one challenge after another.  Stand still for a moment, and quiet the mind.  Allow moments to pass without thinking about what needs to be done, or how to do something. Then readdress the situation with an appreciation for what needs to be done.  Take initiative in tackling the work or task with makoto (sincerity).  Let your strong resolve carry you to the next  bend or fork in the road.

winding road 2

We are all on the same journey, only we have each our own landscapes to discover. Life is never dull and it never stands still. Often we travel parts of the journey on our own, but, we are never ever alone, THE LIFE FORCE OF THE UNIVERSE (GOD) is always with us.  I heard a wonderful gospel song yesterday that I hope you enjoy, no matter what philosophy you follow it has a positive message ….

Intuition – Awareness

COPD  3

Good Morning Everyone….

For days I have been grappling with my own awareness of a disease called COPD.-  As a member of the ministry I see and speak with a lot of different people from all walks of life.  As a Health Care Professional, I am faced with a lot of anxiety and stress issues over one form of illness or another.  Recently I have had to brush up on my “knowledge” of just what COPD is.  I use the term, I hear the acronym  I even use it.  BUT, not that long ago when asked exactly what the full wording was , I drew a blank.  COPD    Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. 

COPD 4

I have no excuse for not remembering, over the year I have met enough people who live with and manage this challenge.  Being retired, the occassions are less,  Unless we are face to face withe the disease, or have someone in our immediate circle suffering with the disease, it fades into the background.  In the Church of Perfect Liberty, PL ministers are set up to offer personal guidance that respond to problems in our daily lives.  Through consultations you receive personal guidance tailored to your individual character and situation.  Each of us has our own unique personality, lifestyle and challenges, therefore, it is different how each of us will practice the true way, or seek happiness.

COPD 5

If you want more on COPD you can search on Google, there is a ton of information on the disease out there, most importantly IF you think you have any  symptoms of COPD, talk about it with your doctor.  Don’t delay, there is no  known cure, but it can be managed.  Intuition awareness of our own bodies, how we feel, the personal challenges, they are real, we need to speak out, share, and work with health care professionals to overcome the frustrations of dealing with challenges on our own.  Let family know, and friends, so they can share the challenge with you.  Sometimes life becomes restrictive, redirect your energy, find other ways to occupy your time that are as rewarding and fun as your other pastimes were.  Value your intuition.

Music brought COPD back into my life.  A performer whose daily life with COPD has given him the strength and dedication to share music with his friends and followers.  I hear how the disease is affecting  him when he speaks, it isn’t easy for him, yet the music he brings to the world with his genius for pulling together various artists and sounds into a symphony of good vibrations is awesome.  I have no idea what personal pain and challenges he deals with on a daily basis, but I do know his positive energy, it comes out during his sets, he weaves a spell of love through everyone who attends his shows.  This doesn’t happen .. just because… it happens because the man has connected with God, his body gives him “grief” but his soul is flying high with  a Divine love that he wants to share with the world.  To hear and appreciate his artist creations, you can contact his partner  Maryrosella (Butterflyrose) for his schedule inworld, Or for that matter  DJ Sky himself (SkyRider Sicling)

For those of you interested in Gospel, DJ Sky plays gospel for an hour on Sundays, from 11- noon SL time. (Pacific Time)  You want Blues, you want Gospel DJ Sky will serve it up to you big time.

Stroll gently through your day, breathe in the fresh air, and drink in the sweetness of life, no matter the challenges.  Love is all around us. Smile and give the love back twofold.         Oyashikiri
