Little door that leads to learning, relaxation, and promotes sharing.  How great is that.

Have a great day everyone.  Tomorrow the 21st, we have Thanksgiving service at 7 pm. Please advise Rev. Eugene if you will be staying for the Japanese curry so that we can prepare accordingly.

Thursday doors

 

Some doors should just stay shut, and others should be explored.  A door opened yesterday, that gave vent for deep rooted anger and hurt to escape.  Fortunately I was able to close the door again.  But it is obviously one I will have to explore again, at another time.

My Mother passed away 2 years ago, my husband one year ago.  There is more processing to do. I give thanks for the blessing of friends.

PL Precept # 5  One’s self is lost by being emotional

PL Precept # 4  Being annoyed limits your expression.

Question, when your hurt is disrespected and tossed aside, my reaction is to withdraw, so that I can be respectful as much as I can of another persons stubbornness… Why is it so difficult for me to accept.  I am not a masochist .. I distance myself my preference to be to live in peace and be happy.  However, there are times, it isn’t that simple.  So by golly, shut that darn door, and leave it closed, in fact, bring the nails and hammer and I will nail it shut.

How serious am I.

Thursday doors

Thursday doors, today the flavour is from Perth, Ontario.  A quiet, picturesque little town about an hours drive from Ottawa.

PL calendar day 6    Past,, present or future, always remember to be sincere and honest.  At any time, the place where you  are standing at that moment is the stage upon which you must express yourself.  At each moment in time there is sure to be a way to express yourself in relation your your position or status.

PL calendar day 30

Your surroundings are a mirror of your thoughts

When you think “this is going to be hard” then your situation will become difficult Instead think,” Let’s do this!” and face your situation with determination.  Then you will be surprised to see how smoothly things will go.

The fascination of a door.  I loved that the lace curtain still hung on the door.

This doorway was further away, however, I couldn’t resist a capture so I could revisit later..  Had someone built a fort for the children to enjoy, or… was it an old structure, repurposed.  The character of places found when exploring other landscapes far from the city. Absolute heaven.

Eartha my travelling companion, shares in the delights of taking that secondary road, the quest for adventure, the joy of a discovery.  We did have a final destination and arrived soon enough.  But, not before we found another gem.

The past is part of our present.

PL calendar day 16

Avoid being careless or overconfident.

Even though you have put your best effort into doing something you still may have made some mistakes.  That is why it is important to always work with a prayerful mind.

Why would someone put an old tire there?

PL calendar day 2

Live each day filled with hope

Even in those situations when you feel trapped with no way out, face every challenge with purpose and enthusiasm and you will find a way.


Nick, Mel and Craig rang the partially hidden little bell

Nick and Mel, sat down to wait a spell

While Craig wandered off to find the well

“oh look”, said Mel

both doors are open, front and back

“for sure” said Nick, “let us explore

Craig will find us when he gets back”

Inside they went to look around

Meanwhile Craig having found a  fast running stream

decided to explore a little more .. will the 3 friends,

end up back where they began? Although they started in one location,  each had his/her own story to tell when ….

Thursday doors 4.25.19

Thursday doors, how much I have missed being able to participate in this series.  My hankering for a door brought me to my desk to look through my photos

An open doorway to another time and place?  A place tended and serene.

A romantic hide-a-way where one can laze the day away.  In this one, fall is in the air, and the weather holds that rustic charm of warm colours and textured wood grains.

To so many of us, who chase the many varied and interesting doors, and doorways.  They are passages to hidden or unknown “adventure”  There is always a story to be found when one enters through a new door.

Garden gates are another temptation. How many of us have had wonderful conversation in a nursery or greenspace over the admiration of floral and fauna.

We need only look around at all the different ways we use and display doorways, archways, gateways.  They are the subject of stories, and many are the central focus in a photo-story.  To the door chaser, they are a work of art,  not in themselves, but their presentation.

 

I know that spring is outside t.he door, but my mood this morning appears to be mellow. I am drawn to fall colours, and the charm I’ve found in my library of photos that I have collected.

When we wake up in the morning, we get to decide which will be the doorway we will use to begin the day.

The choice is ours.

PL calendar, day 25

Pay Careful attention without overly straining yourself or taking things too lightly.

Having the right amount of tension in your life allows you to notice many things, and that  will help you to better express yourself.
