Wednesday’s moment

hydrangea McDonald

Happy Wednesday everyone…. I was driving through a McDonald’s drive through for my ice coffee when I found myself beside a flowering hydrangea.  Now I’ve gone past it often, but that day, it was changing into it’s fall colours.  The summer white was giving way to the burnt peach/rust that will follow.

To remind you, this is what they look like in bloom early summer.  This picture is from the bush on my front lawn.  Hydrangea’s remind me of my Mother, she passed away last March, she was fond of the changing seasons,  with each passing year of  her time here on earth, she allowed nature to take its course, she would blossom in so many ways, it seemed to just happen.  Whatever, whenever, she never lost her youthful glow, that came from within.  Strength, determination, she held her ground.

This bush has been there for years, I always notice it, whether it is just its sculptured form during winter months, its fresh mint leaves come spring, or the first blossoms of another year.

My Mother is no longer here, but her presence is… When love is unconditional, no matter what… life/love combine, intertwine, harmonize.. like God it is everywhere, in everything we see and do.  The sky is always there, weather can change, but the sky is always there.

Blessings my friends… may your world shine, love is everywhere…

Chance inspiration…

 off in the distance

 silence beckons

if by chance

you are nearby

your spirit hears the call

and no matter

where you are

no matter the day or night

you are blessed

with a vision that goes

beyond

into eternity

Good Morning everyone.

It is a day of choices.  When a friend dropped over with wool for another friend, the leaves were bathed in sunshine, as I stood on the steps i was wrapped in a soft light of sunshine, with a warmth that was pleasing.  When I came in for my camera, I thought it would be delightful to share the various shades of crimson and bronze of the leaves.  However… when I opened the door not 5 minutes later, the sun had been replaced with cloud and a dismal sky of washed out grays.

Such is life. Thus the expression “seize the day/moment”  Yes the sun has come out again, but guess what, it is not longer shinning down in that area… it has moved on.  Life is good, it is full of wonder and adventure.

Now.. is always the start of something new!

O agora e sempre um ponto de partida

a  worn and weary boat sits by the dock

alone and forgotten

its old, it has seen many seasons come and go

the young ones that it once ferried

have long since moved on in life

the laughter and the fun

the echoes of children playing were on another clock

now as time ticks on

the boat knows it will soon be docked

it will be put away, left to weather

with only memories of yesterday

of young Russ and Margaret

John, Janet and Brian

“yes,” sighs the creaking old boat

Time for one era to end

so a new one can begin… again.

amen
