So pleased was she, not a crumb was to be seen

that made an impact

for now it is a fact

she willingly ate

a second piece of pie

that is no lie

PL Calendar day 6

Your joy will increase, Once you make up your mind

If you’re going to do it.  Do it with determination.  your resolve will create good rhythm.

*** my friend made up her mind, she would have a second piece of pie.  She did it.  We had a jolly time, the calorie count was of no mind.  They will be counted another time.  =^_^= *****

dreams

f4af79db6c796300f3bc58ba0f756dfcThe last few nights I have had the strangest dreams..  Well .. really if I think about it, they are not all that strange, the themes in most of my dreams are multi-coloured and always, I seem to be drifting from one “act” to another…usually I’m in the same locations, but the back drops are different.  Players change in appearances but in the long and short of it all, they bear similar personalities to the actors I’ve interacted with in the past.

I found this picture in my files, and thought it appropriate for this post.  The colours are cheerful, however there is something about the picture that although I like various aspects of it.. For me, the total doesn’t really pull together properly.  And that, dear reader, is what I am “feeling” this morning.  My dream, my recollection, the moment, etc. is OK, but there is a BUT.

Ever happen to you, can you relate.  It is Tuesday after all, not Thursdays when I usually like to participate in Norm’s Thursday doors. link to Thursday Doors

What else to do but go forward with the day and see what transpires. Exciting eh~!

PL Precept # 18  Each moment is a Turning Point

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 things.  Don’t worry about what other people will say.  Simply take care of the task at hand.

And that is the reality.  That is just the way  it is.  Our experiences, our past shapes our future….  Make each moment count.  Live each day with new “eyes” … be open to new experiences, choices, we all have them…

Tomorrow is the 21st  For members of Perfect Liberty, we celebrate with a Thanksgiving Service.  We give thanks and show our appreciation for the blessings of the past month, while sincerely renewing our determination to follow and practice the Precepts and Principles of PL.

Day 30   PL Calendar

USE YOUR RESULTS TO MAKE THE NEXT TIME EVEN BETTER

Whether things turn out perfectly or not, the important thing is to take what you’ve learned and apply it the next time.

Standing under the branches of the towering trees

looking out, to my left and then  my right

shades of green everywhere, bright sunlight dancing through

outstretched limbs that reach for the sky, in prayer

how can I cry, it is

so peaceful, so serene

alone with my thoughts,  surrounded by nature’s embrace

life is full, it is plentiful, it is full of grace

a child of the Universe, I am, ONE with GOD

PL Calendar #23   Appreciate Our Differences

Appreciate the colourful personalities of the people around you and enjoy their uniqueness to the fullest


Life’s journey is never a super highway, it is full of unexpected stops, and detours along the way.  Remember it is not the destination, but the journey itself that is rewarding.  When we are faced with the unexpected, stop and appreciate the diversion, it is  happening for a reason.  The details might not be clear to you at the time, but if we believe, and have faith, God/Universe will see us through. Love is unconditional.  Love sometimes is having to be different.  Let Go… Let God.

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.
