Is it just me?
The colors and texture seem over the top all around the Sage Hill grounds.
My prayers, thoughts, and manifestations have been over the top lately, so I’m going with the hope….
I feel this urgency to pull every ounce of energy from these grounds and spread it out into the atmosphere!
God is alive, how about the rest of us-
Wake up, light your candle, or build a bonfire!
Did we ever think, there would be a time when packing a bag, hitting the backroads or the freeways would be such a challenge, our needs, and our safety, both have question marks.
While I have not stopped traveling, I do give more consideration to where, how, when, and if the trip is sanctioned by my inner voice!
I was all set for a turn-around day trip yesterday and I suddenly got this big NO that sent my day in a different direction.
I don’t what I missed by staying home, I do know what I gained.
A renewal of how powerful our faith/my faith is and how quickly we can allow rough times to creep in and erode our higher thought process.
I ask God for a sign that brighter days would be coming, that wrongs would be righted, and evil driven from our midst, if we pray, trust, and refuse to back down, give in or give up.
This request was for our land- America- and for Sage Hill land that has been abused by morally bankrupt neighbors and condoned by a morally bankrupt system.
I can say for certain, in the (almost 20 yrs) I’ve been working and loving this land, a sunset of this magnitude and intensity through the camera lens has never been close.
It seemed the locations in question were on fire with the sun.
I was at the right place for the right moments…it didn’t last long but it got my attention!
I will not give in or give up-
Woo-Hoo it’s Friday night!
If you think I’m out kicking up my heels and having fun…you’d be wrong!
I was in the kitchen until 9 PM processing apples!
Unusual for me and not a pending habit I assure you!
I think all the garden tenants got together and collaborated to finalize at the same time….just to watch me hustle!!
I took two days off this week, so…when you play you get behind! This too shall pass! (it was worth it!!)
Yesterday and today brought a good, refreshing rain…thank you, Jesus!
Gardens are a flutter with beautiful Swallowtails.
I’m a wee bit tired, but the stash of winter food is safely in place/we will be dining well!
Parts of the week in pictures.
Summer dining gets 5 stars for “Eating In Season.”
Roasted Anaheim peppers.
Watermelon from my little patch!
When I take a day off? Sometimes I go to the Farmers Market! Haha
Early Morning Rising!
The grounds are just waking up, overcast and cool! New blooms everywhere, no signs of critter visitation.
The Bog is grounding if you sit still and listen.
The stillness creeps into my head, then tugs at my heart, which speaks to my day’s agenda!
Worry about nothing, pray about everything!
A heart at peace gives life to the body. -Proverbs 14:30.
A desire for that which brings comfort, joy, and pleasure, to our heart, mind, and surroundings…to me, is Bliss…it can be as elaborate as the Queens digs are as simple as a cup of tea and a boiled egg…with a few special elements added here and there…some thought tweaking, your favorite music or the quietness of a favorite book.
I am big on bliss from with-in…once we find that…the outer elements will find us.
Need help, need tea, need jewels, need a friend to help you clear the cob-webs….This is your lucky day…I’m available, affordable, and know the way to “Bliss.” NO…I’m not a hooker…LOL…part of finding bliss is being able to laugh in the face of all that which works to bring us down.
Nothing compares to a foggy Tennessee morning-just as the sun breaks through…brunch in the Bog, a knowing…it was, it is, and it will always be…time for Bliss.
