I find myself standing gazing. Minutes turn into hours and I think 'you should be doing something... then, I remind myself - I am doing something.
I am spending time with God.
What's more inportant than that?
Everyday we are excited to begin our adventure- many times up before the alarm @5! The girls no longer want to stay in bed - we have bluejays to feed and beauty to behold! Speechless is how I feel everytime single time I go for a walk. We drove along the property and looked at all the trees feeling overwhelmed with gratitude - to the point (still) of tears. Ginger & Daisy have become a team- bounding through the forest searching for chipmunks! Scruffy & Poppy would rather hang out with me and keep warm & watch from inside the house. lol
Everything has a downside... even falling leaves. These leaves are beyond beautiful - they are also quite distracting. The vibrant orange, red, yellow & green - all green just a few weeks ago, astonishes many - take a drive & the ALL traffic reminds you 'I am not alone in my admiration. Sadly, this can cause accidents, for humans & nature. I found a beautiful bird on the road early in the morning, I had seen the cars ahead pass it -I had to stop (mostly curious, I'll admit) it was still alive... but very badly hurt. It looked at me - how frightened it must be lying there witht he cars wizzing by. I picked it up and held it.. took it to my truck & we sat for a couple of minutes and it died not long after, looking at me. I told it, I loved it & thanked it for it's time here.
Today, I heard a pedistrian was hit & died this weekend & the driver stayed. I get it.
Even when I drive I remind myself - look at the road NOT the trees.
It's just one more reminder of Ying & Yang. Good & bad. LIFE & loss of.
Today I choose joy, love, peace & to serve... not sure how - but I'll try! ;)
The bird was buried in mybackyard, that bird died peacefully, in my hands...
knowing it was loved by me. That is how I 'served' @ that moment. I hope.
Norm gave the sauna some TLC ! Weee - we all love the sauna, what a lovely little bonus - My psorisis is looking & feeling better... without DRUGS. Yes, I am on my own permanent retreat & it feels fucking fantastic. We are getting along better than we have in about a decade... who knew!?
Time to paint - Bake & explore in admiration the FALL of all these leaves!
Can you think of (on Earth) a better reminder of dying and rising again - with such a breathtaking, mind-blowing display of Gods glory?
Sure to give even every atheist something to ponder as they wander the woods. ;)
with TLC & THC
