Good afternoon everyone. Tomorrow service will be at 10: a.m. watch for the church e-mail advising you when and how to sign on.
Last few days of tranquility, soon there will be outdoor activity with the smell of the fresh new growth, sunlight warm on bare arms and winter pale legs. When friends post the sights and wonders of their backyards, and places that they can wander and enjoy, it brings me such a joy, such shared happiness. Friends are what makes our day-to-day so magical. Each one is like a jewel, with its very own facets and brilliance. Unlike an object, friends are priceless.
I know I keep repeating how much I appreciate and love you all, can’t help it. You all bring such richness into my life that I am at a loss to explain why I have been so blessed.
Blessed I am.
Day 22 of the PL Calendar
Appreciate the strengths as well as the shortcomings in others Even though you may not agree with someone, complaining about it doesnt’ help. remember, “We are all human,” and accept each person for who they are.

What goes around, comes around.... over the years, at one time or another, we have heard this little phrase .. usually it is said and then forgotten. The Universe is infinite, we never know when, or where, but the time will come when there is “pay back”

Have clear goals and take appropriate actions.
Always begin with a clear idea of what your goals are. Once you have pinpointed the target for your actions, things will move forward much more smoothly.
With the nicer weather, more and more people are spending time outdoors getting reacquainted with the local parks and trails. Doing inventory in the garden, what is preparing to reappear, what has been lost or not doing so well. Each day truly is a new beginning.

My thanks to a dear and wonderful friend, who was out with his camera and came across these new blooms. Spring blossoms are so welcoming, so darn full of determination .. their crisp green and vibrant yellows peeking out after one of Nature’s last snow flings.
Good Morning, Bom Dia!!

Being considerate of others is just as important as what works for you
Always be mindful of the situation of others, not just your own. To have a good relationship with those around you, always think of what is important to them too.

Today’s lesson… (PL Calendar) 9 – Your surroundings are a reflection of You.
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…
Spring comes once a year,
it lasts 3 months and then it fades away
Life is an accumulation of efforts, that we make every day
whether it be spring, summer or fall
our lives take place NOW
we accept that the blooms will bless our days
then fade away when their time is over
why is it so difficult to let go of love
that no longer breathes life into your day
Life is precious
you will live through your own personal seasons
enjoy the changes
make them your own
live in the NOW
