A Spring Rain falls from the clouds above
landing softly with a trickle-trickle sound as it travels through the downspout to the ground
Birds perched in the trees, chirp and rejoice as mother earth also welcomes the fresh water to nourish her parched parts beneath the lush green grass.
A Rain Day … I’ll take it
We didn’t have snow days this winter not even one, the first ever in my 50+ years of living the Appalachian Mountains, this will have to do.
And I, like the birds, grass and trees, welcome the sounds with open ears and an open heart to be still and listen.
There’s an expression I’ve heard or read: “Wherever you find yourself, therein be content.”
Today I have found myself in my little corner room, window open to hear and enjoy the sounds from the rain and birds and experience the wind as it gently blows across my cheek.
In this moment, I find myself content.

Upon the grass
Over the rocks
Around the flowers
Spring is here
Small blooms appear in the most obscure places.
Take care to notice their presence.
is a time for walking with friends
for remembering the One(s) who gave their lives for us and asked only this– BELIEVE
Spring has sprung and with it the birds and their songs
New leaves on the Maple Tree
Forsythia, Daffodils, Tulips, Trillium, Bloodroot, Violets, Trout Lillys and so much more
Nature in all her forms is celebrating their birthday
And we are gifted another breath and wonder

a look back on 2021
A year of loss
A year where a Leap of Faith was taken into the unknown
A year of Trusting the God of my understanding, the Divine, Jesus, the Mystery, the Whisperer
Letting Love in
Trusting that ALL is well and ALWAYS will be in God’s time and in God’s way
Choosing Gratitude for the gifts given and the ones shared
God thank you for the Serenity to accept those things/people/situations I can not change
God thank you for the Courage to change those things/situations that I can
God thank you for the Wisdom to know the difference
Wishing you all a year of focusing on what you have, sharing what you can, good health, good food, good choices, peace of mind, body and soul.
Bluejays, cardinals, mockingbirds, bluebirds, finches, doves and crows grace the backyard oasis on the first day of spring.
Blooming yellow forsythia and a bank of periwinkle with a Lenten rose in full bloom surround the waterfall as the goldfish swim in the pond below.
Grateful for ears that hear and eyes that see.
Grateful for Spring and all that spring brings.

September moon shone brightly upon the lawn
tiptoeing outside in the evening dew
one ginormous Moon flower blossom beams bright white as it greets the night for a one night show
oh what a beautiful sight…
…soft, luxurious, delicate, velvety blossom – divided by soft lines of gold nectar to reveal a starfish hidden within
its debut – always unknown – like a babe born into this world
yet, the Moon flower’s purpose is to razzle dazzle like a magician – and put on a show – and a show it did put on – shining brightly through the night
thank you Moon Flower – until we meet again – good night!
