end of a perfect day!

along the Ottawa river – going towards Petawawa, Ontario, CA

When something comes to mind, do it right away, the moment that you notice something is the best time to take care of it. If you react quickly, your life will be more efficient.

Had a wonderful “SPECIAL DAY”. my wonderful friend Eartha spoiled me, doing all the driving. We headed towards the Military base, taking side trips along the way…. all the while keeping the Ottawa river in our sights.

A “time out” day.. perfect in every way. Thank you for all the well wishes, and the birthday greetings.. I feel very blessed.. without you all … life would not be the same… Thank YOU.

PL PRECEPT # 1 LIFE IS ART…

Strive to Overcome Obstacles by changing your mind-frame. Things don’t always go as planned When that happens, try changing how you look at the situation of how you are doing things. The outcome is in your hands.

Yesterday was a day trip to Montreal to pick up supplies had ordered. Yes I could have had it shipped, but then I would have missed a wonderful long visit with a cherished friend I had not visited with these past months, due to “circumstances” Plus in Montreal at the shop itself, I got to see the owner and friend, who has been working very hard to keep us (her clients and friends) all in the loop of her activities in the stores, She just never stopped, bringing in the supplies we need and want. Even taping little workshops and showing us all the goodies that were there for us to ponder on.

She looked out for us, and now we are ensuring that she gets our support with the reopening of her shop .. still in a limited phase.. BUT people, Scrapbook Centrale is open, 7 days a week. check with Natalie for hours.. and appointments are still best. The doorbell kept ringing the whole time we were there. Her shop is a goldmine of paper art supplies that we can find no where else within miles.. Not under one roof.

English and French, check out her website …..

In the same plaza there is a pasta restaurant that you might want to try, if you like fresh pasta, homemade there, the pasta and their sauces. it is an unassuming plaza restaurant. We almost passed it by when we first saw it, now we drive anywhere near, and that is our choice place to eat. To the right of the Jean Coutu (pharmacy)

Every day is special, but when you get to spend time with a friend, it makes for an extra special day. I was one tired fortune cookie when I got home. my little fortune read.. Time for sleep.

Today, is another day… I welcome whatever comes my way. Have a grand day everyone… I send you all the warmest and brightest wishes -filled with love and colourful butterflies of hope.

a meditation in green

I started out for one place, was in the wrong lane, ended up in a totally different direction, and smack dab to the entrance (parking lot) for the Larose Forest.

Was I dressed for a hike through the forest trails, no. Being the trouper I am, I decided to hike down one of the trails to get some pictures. Hot, was it hot… yes, but walking along under the canopy of the trees, there was a breeze.

My day was planned out for me by a higher being. I would not have started out to visit the Larose Forest on a day when temperatures were going to give us a scorching heat, with a high humidity factor thrown in. But I end the day with gratitude in my heart. I had a lovely day, it was a productive day, the myriads of greens, and earthy tones, was a palette that not only pleased the eye, but soothed a weary “soul”

Live in the moment. Whether you are walking, having a conversation, or having a good time, it is important to be fully engaged. Remember to live in the “now”

xmas in July

what a party Sandie was really rocking, her theme was Xmas in July.

Quality time with good friends is a very special way to enhance our daily living during these “challenging ” times. My heartfelt thanks to Eclair the owner and creative force behind this very enjoyable venue. Behind every avatar is a human being with a heart and soul … the warmth and glow of friendship that was shared last night was truly a real “xmas” in July.

Silver and I had a great time .. Cheers to everyone, and Sandie thanks again for the great set!

Power of Prayer

Faith can move mountains

I recently did special prayers for someone in my life. I knew how important it was for him to connect with a family member. Due to circumstances, this was an impossibility. The thought had been in my heart, and on my mind for some time, but I had not action-ed my thought.

Sunday after service, I asked to do special prayers with the Sr. Minister. I prayed with faith in my heart, and let it go.

Today in speaking with my friend, I heard the joy in his voice, the opportunity to speak with his loved one had taken place. I was moved to tears. The emotion of the experience was so great.

In my lifetime, I have seen and felt many beautiful happenings. This particular blessing has reaffirmed for me the power of prayer. I have so much gratitude in my heart this evening.

In PL, we can receive personal consultations, or prayers tailored to our individual characters and situation. In this instances I prayed for my friend and his happiness.. In his happiness, I found contentment.

I will live with a mind of appreciation towards others and things. #4

I will live with the spirit of Misasage (Devotion) working for the happiness of others. #4

Wordless Wednesday

are you?

running or standing still

Good morning =^_^= if you have been with me along this journey for some time, you may recall this photo. It was taken around the time my husband passed away. The car was totaled. Ask me today, anything about that time, if I was hurt, what happened.. it will be two years in the spring, yet I can only give you a vague recollection. I would have to stop, and think back, focus on that time. I won’t do it. Why, because the Universe saw me through that time period. Now, I am living the experiences and adventures of today. “be in the now” (PL)

Outside the hospital after we knew it was terminal

What I hold dear is the memory of the many years we had, the blessings that our togetherness was strong, that we held on to the Oneness that was US.

We loved most the moments we could share in tranquil places we found along the way.

Are you running or standing still, are you dreaming or living your precious moments here on earth. ?? When you are faced with the turmoil and challenges of outside elements that want nothing better but to cause destruction. Are you able to say.. I have my quiet place. There is genuine love in this world, and step by step, inch by inch, those who believe in love and the UNIVERSE in and around us… will live in PEACE .

You have a choice…

Sands of Time

Sands of Time

Be a person who can recognize the sincerity of others, When you put your whole heart into things you will be able to notice the sincere acts of others in the subtle things they do and appreciate them that much more.

Cleo Jan 21

Cleo is Hermit’s sister

Both Hermit and Cleo have had very similar life experiences, however, both handle their reactions to the journeys in a different way. Cleo likes to surround herself with golden jewels, precious stone, some more dazzling than others. While Cleo likes beds of woven wool from the softest fleece, and dresses in custom designs.. Hermit likes the simplicity of just BEING. They look very different, but they both have suffered the various experiences only living LIFE can give us.

We all deal with having our hopes dashed, a day of bitter disappointments, a thoughtless cutting word or sentence that is aimed at us. In the end, they are only moments in time. Once lived, we move on. Each person copes in his/her own way. But cope we do, it is built in to our DNA. Have faith, God is always with us, tomorrow is another day. ( PL Precept #11 )

Be thankful at the beginning and end of each day. Each and everyone 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.
