The miracle of light.
The miracle of hearing the birds sing.
The miracle of rain fallen and the earth rejoicing with a lushness of green grass, spinach in the garden and a full pond of happy goldfish and two frogs.
The miracle of air in my lungs and eyes that see.
The miracle of life in all its many forms.
It expands. ❤️
Myself. My mother. My father.
Ask Faith to embody me in thought, word and deed.
Some one once asked me where I first felt safe in my life? My answer was under the Willow Tree. It’s branches protected me and provided a safe space where I could look out and light could still find me. My journal, bicycle and an hour alone gave me time and a safe and peaceful place to express my thoughts on paper while enjoying the safety of Willow. My love of poplars, oaks, maples, dogwoods and flowering tulips are a few more to name. I later created a blog site called www.NcTreesPhotography.com I love trees for many reasons. 🌿🍀💚

Love of others.

Belief in my God.
I’ve been caring for others for as long as I can remember. At this particular time, there is close attention given to my father-in-law who is 97, and my husband who currently has a sinus infection. And this morning, a little self care is needed. Caring also includes a very long and universal prayer list for peace in every heart and home. Blessings and peace to all of you today all days.
When I am challenged beyond my comfort zone, and I trust God enough to let go, move forward and realize yet again, God is always with me.
When I’m in the woods walking and surrounded by nature.
In silence, when I open my ears and heart.
In deep gratitude.
When another is praying for me, and I, for them, and the prayers are answered. 💖
About writing. About living in the moment. About trusting God with all things big and small. This morning I am grateful.💕
To follow my heart and listen to The Whisper within which is the guidance I seek and choose to follow with my heart open and knowingness that this guidance is love.
Start with the letter’ A’ and think if something or someone I am truly grateful for and continue through the alphabet. This helps me tremendously. 💗
Waking up and looking at the mountains as the clouds rise.
Looking over the ocean and the vastness of the water and the sounds it makes.
Looking in the eyes of a child and knowing their light shines so bright.
Remembering the first time I realized God and heaven exists. 💗
How wonderful Kevin. Enjoy your day. With gratitude for your sharing. Anita
Dear grateful see, I am with you in heart and spirit and I believe you are doing exactly what is called for by being present. I have seen one Elder mother-in-law leave this earth and I was so grateful to have spent whatever moments I could with her as she entered a decline. I what’s in a writing course at the time and I ended up writing a piece on her that was later included in her service. She was full of spirit while she was here on the earth full of joy and humor and of course when the dementia started someone else emerged but only temporarily. My suggestion not that you’re asking or my prayer as love him up. Anita
Aren’t we all? 💓
