bed lump

 

img_1722bedlumpA bed lump happens when your dog insists on helping make the bed.  Eventually I made it around and over her.  All I had was a lump, but then she got out, and left me with this. img_1721Before I could straighten up the mess.  Her brother took over her job of helping.  There he is calming cleaning himself up after his breakfast.  No hurry to move, and not concerned that he could be delaying my progress.  For my readers who share their homes with four-legged bundles of energy, you know that it is often such moments that can be endearing or…. trying on one’s patience.

Whether it is a loved one, a friend, a co-worker or total stranger, there is seldom a day that will go by when our “personal” agenda is not presented with a hiccup.

In PL, Principle #3…. I will live with a mind of appreciation towards others and things, and Principle # 5  .. I will not get angry at anyone or anything, are mantras I repeat during the day.

Precept # 15  All is a mirror.    How often in a day, does my behaviour, or something I say or do, cause someone else to pause.

My Mother used to say, ” it is not always about you”.  Over the years I have had many occasion to meditate on my actions, and the world around me, and how I react to it.  After all, Dad would say ” the choice is yours, you can let others dictate your mood/happiness, or your can know and appreciate your worth, let go and move on.’

A philosophical morning, you bet!.. to friends in Michigan, is deWitt, or Lansing somewhere that I can get to easily?

For those of you coming to church this morning, I will see you at church.  If you are unable to be with us in person, please say a silent prayer for World Peace.  Today is Feb. 1st.  the first day of the month.  Day of Peace service will begin at 10 a.m.

Have a grand day everyone, may it be a productive and rewarding day for you.

Maravilhosa quarta-feira a todos!

banana's in PJs Feb.2017 AustraliaHey friend, are we nearly there

you said we were going somewhere

I don’t see anything ahead

My dearest friend, we are somewhere,

we are here

you and me

this is NOW

 

We are all unique, even though we are in the same boat, at the same time and place, there are no guarantees that we will each hold the same perspective on out situation.  Or enjoy the moment as it presents itself to us in the same way.

PL calendar, day 19  The moment you notice is the best timing

Procrastinating will only weigh you down.  The best time to do something is when you notice it.  You will feel lighter both physically and spiritually.

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 Doors

The beauty of discovery.  I have driven here many many times, yet for some unknown reason, I only  “saw” it earlier this week.  How I could have driven past and not seen it, is a mystery.

Someone once said… when you are ready.. you will know/or see. It was time!

 

I am not sure what appeals to me more, the colours, the peeling paint, the shuttered windows and/or the fresh looking paint on the door and little side shed.  Part of me thinks someone tried to paint over the old bricks with left over paint from discarded old cans.  Whatever, the overall look, works for me.

dreams

 

8.28_001Once more I saw the open doorway, showing me the path to the other side, this time I dared to wander closer.

8.28_003

There was a silence in the air, yet, there was a breeze and the bird (on the right) made a soft cooing sound as he flew by.  His bright feathers so fitting against the blue skies

8.28_004

As I walked my feet made no sound, yet the grass beneath my feet was soft and lush.

8.28_005

The pathway was inviting, I gladly let it lead the way.

8.28_010

Around each corner a new discovery.  Can you imagine my delight.

8.28_007

I felt rather than saw the light that seemed to guide me along through the growth that surrounded me on all side.  I knew no fear, I felt content and aware of the life around me.

8.28_009

There was much to see and take in. Such creativity, such vision.

8.28_011

When I entered a great hall, I felt small, I was one of many to stand  within the walls, I stood alone at that moment in time, yet in my heart I knew, I was not alone. I was surrounded by each and every one of you.  See you are here now. . Just not at the moment I was there. (smiles and winks)

8.28_014.png

There is much to see, enjoy, learn, and share as we grow as human beings and wandering souls.  Don’t be afraid to share and love the ALL that you are.  Dreams are part of our reality.  Whether you believe, or not.

blueberry day

 

cukes 4

you are right’

there is not a blueberry in sight

the cukes are fine

certainly not the same

is a nickel a dime?

oh gosh and darn

maybe a tomato, cucumber sandwich will do

nope, the thought does not appeal

Only blueberries will calm

so sound the alarm

I will be up at dawn

for that sweet, tantalizing taste

of fresh blueberries sold by the case

water colour 3.30

Sometimes we just have to make do

there are no blueberries, there is nothing to do, but wait.

tomorrow will be another day.               tomorrow will come and I will no longer want blueberries.. maybe?  What do you think?

Sweet dreams dear friends.  If your cloud floats near mine, please wave.

Smile as you pass by,  I will feel your vibe… and pass it on.

Agradecimento a todos,   Dia do Agradecimento

A Thankful Person will grow as an individual    PL Day 21

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 service is at 7 pm.  See you all then.


Picture was taken yesterday at beautiful Pansy park in Pembroke, Ontario. I have never seen so many black squirrels in one place.  A step back in time.

in the quiet stillness of the day, I found my way, to a very quiet moment in time. Q
