PL Calendar #5

A cheerful greeting brings people closer to one another

Interactions between people start with greeting one another.

Take the initiative and be the first to open your heart.


A quilt is made by piecing pieces together, each quilt is different.  Even a quilt done using the same pattern, when done by another person, will end up looking very different.  Choices in size, material, colours used, textiles selected, like people, no two are alike.

A smile, a friendly word, listening with an open heart, make today another special day. Share an invisible hug, smile and say hi!

Day 26 PL Calendar

Maintain a Positive attitude and wisdom will come to you

Worrying will prevent you from having good ideas.  Stay positive and you will find a solution.


Good morning everyone.  I was working on a canvas last night, when I found myself writing, LOVE IS AN ART……… ETCHED FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS

I started to correct it.. I read it and thought, oh it should be said this way, or what does it mean this way … of if I change this it will read better.  All of us who write, know this little editor in our heads.  Then I had a little flutter whisper… leave it.. look at it tomorrow.

So I did.  I have decided to leave it.  Love is an Art, and for me, it is etched forever in my heart, so… see waiting sometimes, is “good”

Appreciation

golden-chalice-flower-5s

Yesterday was the 21st, in PL, that is the day we do a special service of “Thanksgiving” and expressing our appreciation for the blessings we have received.

Yesterday my husband was taken to the hospital, I had called 911, and the situation warranted he go into hospital, and he was admitted.  The events started at least 24/48  hours prior to the 911 call.  Come last night I was tired, exhausted, and what I call blotto, I didn’t have the energy to really eat, but knew I had to eat.

In PL, we have a Precept, #7  Everything exists in Relativity, and Precept #11 Always be with God. I believe with all my “Being” that “God” is always with me.  When I prayed the night before on what to do, I was given a sign loud and clear, something happened that everything in me knew, I had to call 911.

When I sat depleted at the end of the day, too drained to do much else but sit and let my mind sort itself out… friends came through for me, my sister gave me a steadying voice and the church sent over   Japanese curry and rice (one of my favourites) this is a meal we all share after service on the 21st. Another friend had made homemade baked beans. The angel that brought the over is a dear and long time friend, who just sat with me and shared the quiet moments with me.  I fell asleep with the joyful love of friendship lulling me into a fitful sleep.

This morning my husband texted me.. his message warming my heart and a new day begins.  In PL we are taught to never lose faith, believe and live every moment of your life.  If there is pain, sadness, it is there because you have known true happiness, and you are feeling the other side of life.. but it reality it is all ONE.

There is no right with out left.  No yin, without yang.  When we live each day, with truth in our hearts.. there are no regrets… memories and lessons yes.. but no regrets.

Time to start another day.  All the best to you, and to all of my wonderful and thoughtful friends, near and far. I love you … each and every one of you.

Be creative, today is a fresh canvas.

Lucky is a happy clip, I grew up being entertained, we appreciated talent, we laughed shows were designed to delight and musicals were her favourites.  She loved music that told stories of life, love, heartbreak, hope and more love.

Believe.. life is good.  and it will be.

PL Calendar day 7

Day 7

Don’t Strain, Don’t Rush, and Don’t be Greedy

When you are doing something, my may rush things to get good results quickly.  Instead relax and enjoy the process (PL, Perfect Liberty)

origami 3.4.18Remember this from yesterday.  I loved the simplicity of it, I wanted to do it.  To make it easier on myself, I asked the minister’s wife if she could please show me how to do it. Being a visual person, I do better when I see something done  (when it is totally foreign to me and origami is)  Her patience at folding the paper, and refolding to ensure that I was seeing where I had to turn the paper, how to fold a crease etc. was calming.

I didn’t know that I was so  hesitant to do it wrong, that I wouldn’t even try until I saw her do it.  The she patiently led me through the steps, one by one.

Me, “miss get it done” was learning something new,  I doubt it is something I will ever excel in, but I did it.  I have an artistic bent as you all know.  The mediums I do best in, are media that work WITH me, for example, my “style” of work, and my need to watch the process develop (I am getting better) finds me working with acrylic and water paints. Oils and I have not clicked over the years.  Yet I do work with mediums that require over night drying…I’ve never taken to oils.

This lesson has a lot to “say” to me. I know that I will do my best to apply myself to practicing the wisdom in this lesson.

I will do my best.. that is all any of us can do.

Have a good day everyone.. LOVE and Blessings.

Jackass Penguins

Africa -jackass penguins

February in South Africa and the Jackass Penguins are enjoying a day on the beach.  Isn’t that always the way, someone is enjoying sunshine while we are experiencing gray skies and rain.  No matter, what is important that in our day-to-day living, no matter the weather, or situation, we do our best.

PL Calendar #16   Don’t hold anything back; Give it your all

“Always approach things with full enthusiasm and energy.  Then, things will develop in a new direction.

Every day is a new day, a new canvas, a new beginning.  Let us celebrate today, share a smile, wave hello, and send love!
