my heart!

dec.2_001

What started out as a very nice day, time with a friend, finding a stamp I needed for a series of cards I’m working on.  Asked I would have said, life is good.

A short time later, we got a phone call, one that changed the “colour” of the day. A clerk from the hospital, left a message that due to what they saw as a heart problem, the scheduled surgery (coming Tuesday) was cancelled, lots to discuss, please call>?? You can understand, this was a rather startling and disturbing message.

We called back, only to discover, that the young lady, had not really gotten her information all updated and ready to dispense prior to calling.  For months now we have been going for treatments, followed and taken every required tests asked for. Now 5 days away from the 1st surgery, they had found a heart problem. Never had we even had an inkling of a heart problem, not even a murmur of one.   Needless to say, it was not a very quiet inducing conversation.

What we discovered was that, at the time my husband was there for the tests, they should have asked for a cardiologist right then and there to have a look.  With a week-end looming, we are on hold.  That a heart problem would surface over night, is rather puzzling.  Anyway, we wait.

My head tells me that if his entire life, he has not had one symptom, or whisper of a heart problem…then… I have to trust that precaution is important.  this is a very serious, major operation, the positive, is that they are making every effort to cover all bases.

Please join me in prayer and positive thoughts.  His main surgery date of Dec. 13th. is still in place.  There is an urgent request that he been seen as soon as possible. We wait. We pray.    PL Precept #11  Always be with God.

genuine heart

alvin, disneyWe are fast approaching the month of December.  A fellow blogger wrote to me today, and used the above two words,  “genuine hearts”.  I loved the sound of the two words, saying them  felt like a modern mantra.

I have found myself watching made for the season, movies on one of the networks, it seems they are playing one after another, and so far they have all been the feel good romantic  movies that pop up at this time of year.  Boy meets girl or girl meets boy, one is full of the holiday spirit and the other is not.. storylines are similar and we are assured of a happy ending.  As my sister pointed out, I don’t have to watch them, I can either watch something else or get up and do something productive.

I tell myself, I’m being productive, I’m being entertained, while I watch human behavior play out in front of me.  After all, someone had to put this storyline together, then gather the assortment of actors, set designers, technical crews, etc. to pull it all together.  The one I watched last night, even had my friend’s son in it. Ah Ha!!! Canadian content… It had to have been done awhile back, cuz he is now the “face” on Canadian Tire commercials, and has been for several years now..  So you see, I’m not just being lazy, I’m acquiring information that I can store away for when I need to spin out some pearls of “wisdom” or something =^_^=

Ok back to the words, caring, genuine hearts…………. I reacted because I do believe that in each and every person on earth, there beats a genuine caring heart.  However I also feel that sadly, it is often on pause, and that we are often treated to a facsimile and not the genuine heart.

If you have any comment or feedback on this, I’d love to hear it.  The world is constantly changing, more and more automation and the use of social internet for communication, is dulling the way humans interact. Machines have no feelings, and viewing life on a screen, is not “real” … it is scripted…  Hello? what say you!

a mess!

Card mess 3

You don’t start out wanting to make a mess, but, that is what you end up with.  I had fabric I wanted to use, part of a dress, a piece from a pair of dress pants, in my head, I thought it would work out.. there were several attempts, In the end, I hit a wall.  The idea will resurface, but not now.  Now it is time to take a break, do something else.

The Tao says, ” a wise person, knows when to stop, a regroup.”  I’ve learned before that trying to force something to “work” when it just isn’t happening, assures a person of one thing…. FRUSTRATION  and a product that lacks “harmony”.

Sometimes we just have to accept.  We made a mess. =^_^=

orange tree

orange tree xI loved this little orange tree.  Every year I would prune it back and bring it inside so it could survive our Canadian winters.  Circumstances were that it grew very big, and we simply were unable to bring it back in.

Fortunately, our niece knew of just the right home and the little, now larger orange tree, went to live somewhere new.  Happiness is letting go, knowing when it is time to say good-bye so that life can continue to grow and bring joy to someone else.

For months now we have been trying to declutter.  We have been finding things we forgot we had.  They are leaving to begin their lives again. Going where they can be rediscovered, and enjoyed and used in the light of day.  Not stored away and forgotten.

When I see piles of this and that.. I’m heartened knowing it is temporary, every day a  bag or box leaves for somewhere else.  It is a work in process.

What are you working on today? Strive towards a positive outcome.  Life is good!!!

“Happiness is giving it away”

Our ancestors lived with the land, they worked hard to cultivate and bring what they hoped would be lasting foundations for generations to come.

In Perfect Liberty we celebrate our Ancestors every month on the 11th. We offer our appreciation and gratitude for all that was, that made us who we are today.

Our ancestors built and walked through many doors.  Many still stand today.  A humble home with a solid door, one that opens in welcome,  and at night provides shelter from the cold.

Open your door today, welcome the opportunities that come your way, carpe diem …. seize the day.

Have a joy filled day, may your hours be filled with blessings that  stay with you forever.  Life is meant to be lived.

unsaid

PL Principle # 1_edited-1

words we say,

we can never take back

once spoken

they linger

time may erase the pain

but, long after

the scars remain

TRUE love given

no matter the distance

will remain true

 and, should there be pain

pure love will see us through

words can lie

real love is felt

often unsaid

yet the bond transcends

above and beyond

always and forever

today, tomorrow and always

GOD  IS

no more, no less

Q
