PL calendar day 10

When you are not having fun, could it be because you are being lazy?

Sometime you feel blue or can’t seem to find the joy in doing anything.  

At times like this, just get up and move your body or work your mind to the fullest extent.


A rainbow caught yesterday afternoon… someone was at the right place at the right time.  Thank you Ms California for sharing. =^_^=

Another reader gave me a big fat smile with this sharing 

click on the  above link  =^_^=         are they not adorable?

Today’s service will be at 10 a.m   See you there.

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.

will I go back and tidy up the bed…. maybe.

Hula Hamster JOY

hula hamster xyThis precious handmade hamster, makes my heart sing.  She puts a smile in my heart just by sitting there smiling back at me.

hula hamster xThe last few days have been difficult for me.  I have found myself drifting into a state of “low drive and little interest ”   When I could I retreated to my bed,  the quiet of a darkened room and the desire to sleep.  My sleep mates were only too happy to crawl under cover and enjoy time out from the weather that was raging outside.

Today I had to go out, there were errands that needed doing, so after a lazy start to the day, I took myself off to do what needed doing.  When I arrived at the church I was surprised with JOY, the adorable Hula Hamster.  Oh what a gift.  I melted and was totally taken in by her charm.

Loving caring friendships are priceless.  JOY lifted me out of the shadows , back into the sunshine.  Olinda weaved a magic spell,   I am blown away. Thank you.  I am reminded that in life,  in a split second, the sun can break through the clouds, and all is right again.

hula hamster joyI am so blessed.  The Universe always comes through for me, when I allow myself to stumble, my friends are there reminding me, that LOVE, is always with me.  God is Love, Love is GOD and we are all ONE

Is there an inconsistency here?  Is something out-of-place?  Are the visuals harmonizing?

This is a visual post.  For sure, when I selected today’s visual, I FOUND  for me the collection lacked congruency,  Can you see it?  Let us have some fun.


Day 20 PL Calendar –  You are YOU others are Others.

You have your own way of doing things, and others have their way of doing thing.  Don’t worry about what other people will say.  Simply take care of the task at hand.


PL Precept 4  Being annoyed limits your expression

We are all blessed with an ability to see life in our own way, to take positives and use them to cope with the possible challenges/opportunities that come our way.  Make today special, share a smile.  It is yours to give.

Maravilhos quinta-feira a todos!  Have a wonderful day!

haunting beauty

IMG_7392walks in forgotten places

the whisper of the leaves

as they are temporarily displaced

by intruding footsteps

on the well-worn path

the memory haunts me

the path remains, but you are gone

no longer will we explore the unknown

for you have gone into the unknown

You have found peace forever more.

While I wait on the shore

listening for signs, that on earth, one day

peace and happiness will be found around the world

Till then, the haunting beauty will remind me of home

and the comfort of unconditional love, beyond here and into the unknown.

Quiet Sunday

IMG_1144

Good morning, bom Domingo   I’ve pulled up this picture again, because when I look at it, I feel a calm. It reminds me of something that I just can’t put  my finger on. *magic*  I imagine small dainty  like figures in white flowing chiffon gowns, garlands in their hair, twinkling laughter floating through the air, while they whirl and twirl to some imaginary music, that is unheard with my earth-bound hearing.  Is it an enchanted circle, could be,.

I will be doing special prayers today, for members, their families and you my friends, near and far.  When sharing with you, the enchanted circle is within reach,  we will bid farewell to the summer that was, and fly happily into the next chapter of our lives.

Love, appreciation & gratitude that is shared, is a true blessing indeed.

Go in peace today, feel the spirits of the Universe carry you forward in a halo of light.

inner travels

IMG_1362

I lay watching the slow rotation of the ceiling fan, a very lazy start to the day indeed. Keeper (female whippet) lay sprawled out beside me.  She was showing her nurturing side, concerned that today might be a repeat of yesterday.

IMG_1358She gets very concerned when I cry and wail.  Velcro (male whippet) her older brother, takes it in stride, he saw and lived through my display of raw emotion, when my husband was in his final days, and Keeper got out and ran away.  Yesterday he simply got up from his favourite chair in another part of the house, to come  lie beside me, to lend me his support and quietly wait it out.

IMG_1360My son the other day, looked at me, and said, ” Mom, its OK to cry”  and of course it is, but for me, I can’t just cry, I have to be  totally shaken and depleted, the body has to over-ride my happiness and stubborn mind that tells me, that there is just so much to be thankful for.  And of course there always is, I am so blessed.

However sometimes, the sadness, and discontent of others is too much for me to bear. I feel their pain, frustrations and disillusion.  And I have learned that I cannot be happy for someone else.  You can not lift the happiness from your life, like a shawl and put it around someone else. You can be kind, listen, share in their “present state” and lend what-ever support you can.

IMG_1363

In the end, the choice belongs to them.  Yesterday I cried, all the sadness, the disappointments that I have listened to for the last many days and months, welled up and demanded to be released. I wanted escape, and freedom from the continuous onslaught of negative news, the vicious nature that is surfacing in the world around us.  The curiosity we seem to have for the gossip tabloids, that thrive by reporting or should I say offering up gossip about cheating, lying and fornication.  Where we lust instead of love.

IMG_1365Time for some time out.  Quality time without a cell phone,  computer, laptop, or tablet. There is a reason, dogs (pets) are the best of friends.  They offer unconditional love. Nothing more, nothing less.

Cherish your family and friends, offer kindness and understanding to those around you, when there is unkindness, or dishonesty aimed in your direction. Deflect it, or let it pass you by.  Life is too short.

PL Calendar, day 26        Maintain a Positive Attitude and Wisdom will                                                   come to you.
