“The world is full of magical things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.”
W. B. Yeats (Bertrand Russell & Eden Phillpotts had similar messages)

We are on the brink of understanding many amazing things that have nothing to do with man-made technology. That was my thought after watching the video below about the possibility of trees supporting each other and communicating. It’s the same wonder I feel when I read about Dr. Masaru Emoto’s work with water. Dr. Emoto did use technologies of peace to observe and show how the structure of water crystals is affected by words and thoughts.
I hope and pray
that we do not destroy these magical things.
I hope and pray that we open our eyes,
that we open our minds,
that we open our souls
to see, to discover, to feel the wonders of the Creation,
for Creation is the portal through which we can know God.

It is possible to have a healthy, intimate relationship, and not lose yourself in the process. Here’s the story:
Heart Cloud, by JoAnne Silvia
The song below, by Laura Story, reminds me of the darkness and grief I felt when my 20 year marriage ended. That was about 13 years ago. I wanted to die, but I had to live for my kids…and for the possibility that time would heal my pain.
God does not want us to suffer. But God can turn our misery into miracles. Sometimes the most wonderful miracles grow out of our deepest despair, when the time is right – when we’ve learned what we need to learn to be ready for the blessings. (See “About Me,” for example.)
Blessings are being prepared for you!
It’s possible to find the right kind of love. I had to start by loving myself and letting God love me.
Here’s a post from my new blog: Loving Me, Too.
Sharing this article from Daily Good, News that Inspires. It makes so much sense to use waiting time wisely. I bet we can all add one or two things that are even better than flipping through the “Stars Without Make Up” magazine in the grocery store.
My husband, David, feels strongly about Memorial Day being reserved for those who died in the service of our country and Veteran’s Day being a time to honor all veterans who have served. I can understand this. I respect his belief of Memorial Day remaining, as it was initially intended, a day specifically for those who gave their lives: a tremendous sacrifice.
Yet, I can be flexible on this particular issue. It doesn’t bother me if people use this holiday to honor and remember the other sacrifices that are perhaps not as extreme as death. The blog below moves me to remember those fallen soldiers who may have been considered “the enemy” by some….and all the families who lost loved ones, on both sides.
In The Huffington Post blog below, Bishop James Magness writes that “One of the first Memorial Day proclamations was made in 1868 by General John Logan, who was serving as Commander of the Grand Army of the Republic.” He then goes on to write, “This began the tradition of placing flowers on the graves of all the Union and Confederate service members at Arlington National Cemetery.”
What do you think? Should Memorial Day be reserved to honor only those who gave their lives for our country?
