be thankful

This little flag was brought back a year ago, it was to fly happily at the church reminding one and all, that we should be thankful at all times.  Somehow, it just never got put up, and it was  only discovered recently again, when I picked up several boxes of goodies I had to be recycled to the House of Lazarus, Community Outreach Mission, in Mountain, Ontario. *

Seeing it again, was uplifting and reminded me that I do have so much to be thankful for.  I kept it, and it hangs where I can see it everyday.  Actually it sits where both my husband and I can see it and rejoice at the blessing we have been given.  An illness is an opportunity to revisit  the purpose of life, and why we are here.

A reminder not to squander your days and nights doing things you don’t enjoy, or with people who are possibly toxic in your world.  Rather than peace, love and caring, they can only offer, negatives.  They project hate, greed and selfishness.

This is the Canadian Thanksgiving week-end.  Families will gather, with friends and family to share the bounty in their lives.

Be sincere, be honest love with an open heart.

Chop Suey Tuesday

oct-26_011

With the goings on in the world today, I’m never sure what will greet me when I first listen to the news after a lovely night of sleep.

I first wrote this little poem back in the fall of 2007, I made a few changes, to share it with you now…. have fun, let your imagination flow.

How eerie the night

when everyone looks for a fright

carved pumpkin heads

leer with evil delight

their eyes bleary and red

their lopsided grin

sends a chill from within

children cheer with delight

when ghosts go bump in the night

So tuck yourself in

don’t let the news of the day,

scare your good sense away.

Once upon a time, October came once a year

Now it seems, every day is one the speaks of fear.

Really, let’s think on this, do we want to live this way

I pray each day, that our friendships

will flow and grow

till each and every one of us

in reaching out, will overtake

the negativity spread by “others”

and put pumpkins back on the table

 in tasty pies that we will gladly share

with everyone, for they will be filled with

 thanksgiving, love. friendship and appreciation,

stock ingredients of  our every day.

Blessings.

many steps

sewing-project

we begin with an idea…

PL Precept # 19   Begin Once you Perceive

PL Precept #17   Grasp what is most essential

project-finished

In this case, my sister lovingly sought out and found this material  and presented it to me.  I loved it..  I wanted it to be something that would be used, and appreciated every day.  I don’t get to see my sister every day, she lives in California, but I appreciate her every day. This pillow graces our bed, so every day, she is part of my daily life.   A sister is a precious gift, I am lucky and have two =^_^=

PL Precept # 7  Everything Exists in Relativity

In PL we have a Thanksgiving service every month on the 21st.  It is the most important service of the month, held at 7 pm.  Members humbly express appreciation to God for all the blessings of the past month, and sincerely renew our determination to follow and practice the PL “Way”

Our 2017  Perfect Liberty Calendars are here and ready for those interested in obtaining one or having them for gifts to friends and family for the coming year.  They are available in English, Spanish, Portuguese and of course Japanese.  A reminder if you need them mailed to you, there would be a cost for the shipping.

YOU are a blessing in my life

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving

golden-chalice-flower-5sGreetings to you on this lovely sunny day.  The weather has turned a little cooler than it was last week, but I love the hint of zest, that little tang or crispness that has filtered in pinging our hardwood trees with a flirtatious  kiss that starts the leaves blushing and in some case, turning crimson red.

Driving down the highway towards Orleans (Ontario) I was totally smitten by the wide sweeping colours that waved to me as I passed by.  The sun was beaming down and all around me… there was pure happiness in the air.

orange-firecracker-vine-flower-1sThe flowers here are Oli’s from Australia, they too are enjoying this time of year.  No matter where we are on this planet.. what is that old expression… it is always after 5 pm somewhere, if not where we are.  The sun works its magic wherever it is.

So do we….. PL Precept #8, live as the sun.

Music is a venue that brings friends together.  tonight I will celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness at a party, the DJ always plans his events to challenge us in our knowledge of music from the past many years. His eclectic style and library of tunes, means he is “really does ‘ challenge us.. who can name this tune, what date did this come out..etc. (DJ Nick from Michigan)   He will be followed by a DJ from Oklahoma  (Bluelou McGrady) who with his brand of Blues will have us moving and groovin’ unable to sit still for longer than a minute, no matter our best intentions.

When we share our talents, and give freely of our time to inspire and great good times for others, happiness and friendships blossom and bloom.

The venues for these events, the first one is at Pacifique owned by the lovely Eclair Martinek, and the second event is at a down home southern bar/club  Rocking the Blues complete with swamps and alligators owned by Miss Kira Wyldfire, please note, all names have been changed to protect the innocent. =^_^=

These ladies practice living their lives, walking the path of true friendships and welcoming hearts, this is reflected in the people that work with them and the audiences they attract.

pink-begonia-flowers-1sWe all come from different backgrounds, worlds,  places, our histories are different,  our lifestyles could be miles apart, but what we all have in common, is the desire to be happy, and to live peaceful and joy filled lives.  We love our friends, and we cherish those who have stood by our side through thick and thin.

This is Canadian Thanksgiving, the American one is in late November, and the Church of Perfect Liberty, we celebrate Thanksgiving every month, on the 21st.  We focus on gratitude, appreciation and give thanks, for all that we are, and will be and for those we love and appreciate, past and present.

PL Precept # 10   Love yourself and Others

PL Precept #20   Live Maintaining Equilibrium between mind and matter

Love is forever, it really is…

Share a smile today…

Buen dia, Good morning, Bom dia

Tome todo con sentimiento de gratitud

Accept Everything With Appreciation

buddha

Did you know that a honey bee will visit over 2 thousand flowers in a day if it needs to!  That is perseverance to get a job done.

Could this be where we got the saying, “busy bees”

honey bee

Sea una persona capaz de agradecer todas las cosas que acontecen ante sus ojos.

Aquellos que agradecen mucho son felices.

Today is the 21st and in PL our evening service is about appreciation, and giving thanks.

Today’s lesson

Become a person who can be thankful for anything that happens to them.

A person who is always thankful is a happy person.

Namaste      Oyashikiri

Thanksgiving

new Zealand, Abel Tasminclear path ahead

nothing in the way

great, you can’t wait to wander

into the great beyond

you  stop to ponder

what to take with you

while you re away

a whole day just to explore

how grand a plan is that

almost out the door

oh no, the phone** is ringing

do you keep going or do you answer

what news could the call be bringing

6cc1917f6da17c0a9d80b197cad12c52

you could just keep going out the door

after all, a few seconds later,

you wouldn’t have heard that phone ring

some days, you have to keep going

if the call is important, they will call back

there are times, when

you really really have to put YOU first

we forget, that we are not infallible

or we think we might miss out on something

1531e6193f3846033548a9d4fca5ec1b

give thanks for your blessings

live each moment

YOU are all so very precious to me.

Namaste   –   Oyashikiri
