Thursday doors 7.19.18

 

Thursday 7.19th

This is a door that belongs to a vehicle that I count on to bring happy mail.

Have a good start to your Friday everyone..  For those of you in the PL “family” remember we have service at 7pm on Saturday, the 21st. (Thanksgiving)  No service on Sunday.

Thursday door 6.28.18

 

flowers PA4This door is  more welcoming during the summer months, when there are blossoms blooming to invite you to enjoy the view.

These days I feel like a door.  I stand ready, each day a new “visitor” comes to call, today the stove called.  It blew a gasket, sending smoke and fumes into the air.  The fire alarms chimed in to really add to the excitement.

The dogs and I just looked at one another.  I ran for the stove, turned it off, opened the door, got the fans going, and and and.

New stove will be delivered next week.  Interesting menu if you care to stop on by. My house is the one with the happy weeds, the new weed whacker won’t start.  No wonder the house with the roses is smiling … it knows there is no competition this year.

Don’t worry, I’m as happy as can be.  I got to post a door this Thursday. Yipeee… For more doors, check out Norm 2,0 Thursday doors

thank goodness I am a positive person. I’ve had to deal with a cracked coffee maker, a burnt out toaster, a new weed wacker that is being finicky, and a stove that said I quit.  Good for me. I get all new toys.

 

the door

doorHello door

how come you are so small

if I open you, where will I go

first you need to open me

only then will you see

if it is possible to enter within

well, I thought that isn’t so welcoming

still it was a pretty door,

I was intrigued

I bought the door and brought it home

now you are mine

I smiled and thought of when I would go inside

the door silently stared back at me

yes, I am yours it finally said

but just because you bought me

doesn’t mean that I will open up for you

hmm there was a message there

not so much in what was said

or was it……….. what was said

I had the door, the physical door was in fact mine

no doubt there, it sat on my desk as pretty as ever

Sometimes, it is not the door we want .. is it?

It is what is inside…. or what we “think” is beyond the door

Have you come across a door of late

where you  are willing to wait

to see if you have the “key” to open the door

and go beyond the physical barrier

of a shut ” door”

Some doors are open

some are not

even when open

do you really want to go inside?

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

Thursday doors 2.1.18

When you see a building off in the distance, you know you are going to get closer.  No matter the weather or the road conditions on that day,

A simple structure, not sure what it is for, I wondered if it is decoration or for children to play in while the parents enjoy a coffee break.

When I found the door I was excited.  Wow… it is all in the details.. rustic, charming, certainly a cheerful moment in an otherwise ho hum day .. (weather wise)  My husband and I enjoy this park, in the summer, it is not over crowded, and the breeze from the water is always refreshing.

We didn’t get there last fall, due to circumstances beyond our control, so this was a very pleasant surprise.  Put a door on something and all of a sudden, it becomes a much more interesting place.

PL calendar 1 – It is important to live in harmony with our surroundings.

This little house and door,  fit into the landscape just beautifully. =^_^=

Maintain harmony in your lives, daily, harmony is the basis of a peaceful society.

Thursday door – dreams

Alexander Lautsyus January post

Door –      usually we think of a physical barrier that opens, closes, revolves, but what about the doorway to our dream states, or entrance to another realm.  When Alexander posted this picture in earlier January of this year, I was immediately transported to another place, a state of mind/Being.  I had no words to describe how it made me feel, it just spoke volumes to me.

I immediately texted him asking for permission to use this photo, this is a copy, to see his original post, please visit ice art Jan 22.18

The picture for me puts a visual on the “feeling” of some of my dreams.  His 1st picture in that blog, reminds me of when I am searching looking out, and this one I’ve posted, reminds me, or gives me a feeling of happiness and joy.  He was on Lake Ontario, he looked, he saw, and he captured.

Not a physical door, but definitely for me, a doorway, an experience of walking through to another “world”.  For “real” tangible doors, you need to link to Norm 2.0 and from there follow the links to all the other bloggers who post to this feature.

Thanks for sharing today, it is a beautiful day, and you are all part of my sunshine!

a special thanks to Alexander Lautsyus for allowing me to share his “works” with you

and to you Norm for indulging “my” love of all doors/doorways

PL Precept #1 Life is Art

 

 

 

Thursday doors -windows

houses 2x

Good morning everyone, the holidays are fast approaching.  We are busy trying to settle back into a routine, and I am once more running the roads on errands.  I am especially trying to beat the rush that will take place closer to the week-end, it will be impossible to find parking in the shopping mall parking lots.  Already there is a sea of cars as far as the eye can see in the bigger centers near us.

Norm’s Thursday doors, is a huge interest to me, doors being so much a part of my life over the years.  I am a keen  buff on older homes, doors, windows and all that go along in the inspiration of my creative spirit.

The I found this collection of hand stitched works of art, sitting waiting to be framed in a  thrift shop of all places.  Someone had spent hours carefully building these charmers stitch by stitch.  That to me is a true love of houses, windows and doors. Having attempted at one time this craft, I had full appreciation for the hours spent on putting these together.

If I have learned anything during the last few weeks, it is that what we see on the outside is not necessarily what is going on “inside”  Our bodies house our “souls” the vibrant and vital energy this is our “lives”.  The windows and doors, are the way we look out, and how we maneuver the in and outs of our journey through this life.  In some ways they reflect our personalities .. many times, they are merely shelters.  It is what goes  on, inside the house, that makes it a home.

PL (Perfect Liberty) celebrates every 21st of the month, with a Thanksgiving ceremony.  The service is dedicated to giving our appreciation and gratitude for the blessings we have received through the month.  Think today as you read this, just how many blessings you have received in the last few days.  There are always positives, we need only be receptive to them.

At first I was sad that the beautiful work someone had done was now in a Thrift Shop, then I realized that it was the joy in stitching that was the person’s pleasure, and now, I was happy in the discovery.  Sharing his/her work with you, is also a “happy”… May the many little windows and doors open for you today.

Find the sunshine, find the happy, in your day.  You will be blessed in many ways.
