Winsome Winter

Icicles! Icicles! Icicles!

In addition to the massive snowfall, the gusty winds and the freezing cold, the house has developed icicles!  These are the biggest ones I’ve ever seen!  What a winsome winter we’re having here!  Thanks Mother Nature!

In the photos, you probably can’t see that there are some which are even taller than me (because they end behind the banister on the stairway), but I think they are beautiful.  When the sun was shining on them and they were glistening, they were magnificent.  Unfortunately the photos I took don’t do them justice.

Snowfall and morning moon with a snow drift in the bottom forefront! Farm house across the road.

The temperatures with wind chills factored in are reaching – 5 to – 20 which is mighty cold for Jersey.  But we are cozy in the house, so that’s all that counts.  We had some snow drifts that were about 3 feet high in places, so they weren’t shoveled.  But the driveway is clear, thanks to a few snowblowers and some back breaking shoveling.  Thank God, all is well.

A little Caturday surprise before the tree is removed.

How are you doing in your area?  Snow?  Cold?  Windy?  Sunny?  Warm?  I hope that whatever your weather, you are nestled all snug in your home like our kitty Tigger.  As always, I wish you a lovely Saturday, filled with blessings, goodness and with a heartlight that shines brilliantly!

Shine On!

Go Ahead…Make Waves

 Rabbit Rabbit to you!  If you don’t know what I’m talking about, then please click here!

A friend shared this with me and I knew I had to share it with you.  Sometimes we tremble when we want to let it all hang out and be ourselves.  But the moon which does it all the time is admired!  This was just a great way to change the way you are thinking, don’t you think?  Don’t believe it is your destiny to just cower and think small.  No, my friends, it is your Divine Right to be yourself, to shine on and to be as big as the moon which we all look up to every night as it shines brightly in the night sky amongst the sparkling stars!

Shine On!

Under the Moon at Home

mooncarolbakerThanks to CSB for the amazing moon photo!

I awoke last night to the moon shining through the skylights in my home.  They were the most amazing, brilliant moonbeams which danced on the floor of my room.  I was infatuated with them and as I looked up, I realized how blessed I was to be so at peace in my life.  To understand the splendor of simply enjoying the feeling of inner peace.

I moved myself so that I was able to see the moon and have the moonbeams sparkling on my shoulders.  Illuminated by the presence of the moon, I spontaneously began to pray.  Words came unbidden to me as I clasped my hands together.  I prayed for the health and healing of loved ones and myself.  I prayed for peace within as well.  I prayed serenely for several minutes naming blessings and gifts for which I was incredibly grateful.

And when I was all through, I smiled.  For throughout the house, the neighborhood and my world in that moment was a sense of peacefulness, a fulfilled moment of appreciation, a breath of calm caught between the still of the night and the dew of the morning.  And I was there ~ I was present in that special moment.

It was as if nature, life, love and humanness all converged inside me for a moment.  I know it’s something that we hold already, but to experience it so profoundly was amazing.  A blessing, an a-ha moment to be cherished.

Have you ever had a special moment where you just feel that supreme inner peace settle into your body, your bones, your mind, your heart and your soul?  If you haven’t, you may want to try to see the moon tonight.  I hear it’s going to be spectacular!

Shine On!
