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.
PL Precept # 11 ASLWAYS BE WITH GOD

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.
we begin with an idea…
PL Precept # 19 Begin Once you Perceive
PL Precept #17 Grasp what is most essential
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
Greetings 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.
The 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.
We 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.

Tome todo con sentimiento de gratitud
Accept Everything With Appreciation
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”
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.
Become a person who can be thankful for anything that happens to them.
A person who is always thankful is a happy person.
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
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
give thanks for your blessings
live each moment
YOU are all so very precious to me.
Namaste – Oyashikiri
