i awoke

at 2:30am this morning to a beautiful sound - the sound of rain gently, but steadily falling outside my window. it felt fresh and clean, the dust of the earth will be moist and fully aware to take in all the nutrients it needs to flourish. and i'm aware of all the beauty inside myself that has been imprisoned for so long.  i choose to release me and let it fly, soar to higher purposes, visions and deeper commitments to my soul, body and mind. i choose

Prayer Flags

i finished two prayer flags, the one on left if reversible.
here is the other side of the one on left. very simple, but eye-catching. don't you think?

this weekend i had a blast at my DIL2B's bridal shower. took pics and vids of it. afterward took two sons and DIL2B to dinner. fantastic time listening to these chatter birds and their plans for life. at the end of the day drove home, straight into the sun setting on a glorious day. how marvelous was that!

Color Me Easter

little girls in pastel bonnets, gloves and shoes egg hunting all around the home. little boys in suits and bows tugging at their pants. dirty knees covered in ground from crawling all around under bush, leaf and branch. finding the prize to throw in their basket filled with coins, candy and other delights.
and most of all resurrection for Christ on this day. a freeing given to my life, a lasting of Eternity. thoughts in purples, white and red travel from my heart to head and head to heart filling me to overflowing.

Someone Was Praying

here on Good Friday they are calling it a miracle that a Navy Pilot had to eject from his jet and ditch his plane in a populated area of Va Beach bc as of last night there were no fatalities.


someone was praying
my son  is in training at the beach and his group was sent to help secure the area. this group of young men and women are some of the finest being trained by VBPD.
someone was praying for all the first responders and the citizens who have lost their homes.

our prayers are not always answered the way we think they should be answered
they are answered.
i am thankful my son was safe.
someone was praying.

and i awoke to see that Thomas Kinkade passed away. Such a beautiful painter of light. i am saddened. he will be missed by people all around the world.

the little prayer flag above was created for a FAT trade. i thought of each of us as gardens, different paths, sometimes needing weeding, sometimes needing watering, sometimes needing to be fed then watching all the beauty in us and around us blossom into full bloom where we lift our voices and begin to SING, Sing, Sing.
You are a delight unto the Lord. You are special.

Soul Poetic

from my 21Secrets Online Art Journalclass with Soul Poetic teacher Natasha Reilly.  our first assignment take pics of 'red'. i can't believe how many reds are in/around my home. such fun and great feelings/thoughts while taking the pics.

my lunch
     chipped flower pot - the red colors have been eaten away by birds.  how odd but i saw it first hand.

BIrthing Connection

this is my first creation in 21 Secrets 2012 the class is called Wisdom Circles an taught by Dion Dior. Our beginning intent to create mandalas from "Gawain and The Lady Ragnell".
Part of what Dion shares is this statement 'In this story, that Lady Ragnell’s only true desire is to be known for who she is, not how she looks. When under the spell, it seems she has no choice but to rely on who she is. In the end it is her intellect, authenticity, and wisdom that prevails.'

isn't that what we all want in life - to be known for whe we are?
me thinks it rather significant to be created on what many refer to as "April Fool's Day"
and in the Christian realm as "Palm Sunday".
