the weather...
let me take some pictures between rain showers!!
"september days
have the warmth of summer
in their briefer hours,
but in their lengthening evenings
a prophetic breath of autumn.
the cricket chirps in the noontide,
making the most of what remains of his brief life.
the bumblebee is busy
among the clover blossoms of the aftermath,
and their shrill and dreamy hum
hold the outdoor world above
the voices of the song birds,
now silent or departed."
~rowland e. robinson
welcome to coffee hour.

Saturday, September 25, 2010 brings changes...

it's when life brings
changes our way
that acceptance is hardest for us.
fresh circumstances often
challenge us deeply.
in periods of transition,
don't rush to make judgements
about how comfortable
the new situation will be for you.
allow things time
to settle down,
and face the future with an open mind.

a weed standing in darkness.
surround by a shadow.
i do love chasing them.
as do these people...
thanks to tracy
for hosting this every week.

the ball
left in the yard
after a time of play.
left out amongst the
leaves that now cover the ground.
the hoop will see play again...
probably not until next spring.
the outdoor sports will soon change to indoor ones.
the voices become quieter
right along with the days.
as we retreat inside.
to the comfort and warmth of our homes.
oh i know...
there are many days of nice weather coming.
but yet,
we still prepare.
that's what we do.
welcome to coffee hour.
welcome to this Sunday morning.
just BE.

Saturday, September 18, 2010 with the light...

“ may you know the fire within you.
may you never doubt your connection to it.
may you learn the balance of holding it close
and giving it freely.
and may you dance with the light that you shine. ”
~terri st. cloud ~
rain + cold = football season.
light + objects= shadows.
there we go
head over to HEY HARRIET

this morning...
this is for k. and j.r.
~terri st. cloud
the journey
of a thousand miles.
begins with a single step.
it isn't easy.
nothing worth having is.
life is a leap of faith.
i love this quote by richard bach
“When you have come to the edge
of all the light you have
And step into the darkness
of the unknown
Believe that one of the two
will happen to you
Either you'll find something solid to stand on
Or you'll be taught how to fly!”
i believe that you will fly.
my love and prayers lift you up.
He holds you.
welcome to coffee hour.
welcome to this Sunday morning.

...of weighing thoughts...

"oh the comfort,
the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person,
having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words,
but pouring them all right out, just as they are.”
~Dinah Maria Mulock
what a wonderful
feeling that is.
summer has taken
a sharp turn.
it has "caught a cold"
as my grandma byers use to say.
i am in hopes that this
is just a product of the hurricane.
that next week will be back
to nice weather.
i was suppose to have last week off...
but started a new job.
so i was secretly happy for me
that it was crappy weather.
we are playing with shadows.
come on over and join us.
just BE.
remembering today...9-11-01
remembering the loss.
remembering America's ability to come together
in her time of need.

Wednesday, September 8, 2010 hour...

missed coffee hour Sunday.
we were camping with hubby's sister and family.
dodged raindrops.
held on to our hats against the wind.
extra clothes and blankets against the cold.
enjoyed the company of family.
enjoyed the talents of my oldest son playing guitar
and singing.
enjoyed the campfire.
good do we put on a good spread!!
enjoyed the stars between the bursts of rain.
enjoyed God's country.
love unconditional.
i will see you next Sunday.
just BE.

...imagine the silence...

black-eyed susan looking at her shadow.
imagine the silence you hear
after listening to a beautiful piece of music,
or even just a beautiful chord.
does it have different qualities
compared to regular silence?
remember that this quality of silence
holding the memory of beauty is always present,
even if you can't detect it.
heavenly music lies latent
in silence as Michelangelo's statue of David
once lay hidden
within a lump of marble.
~1,001 ways to live in the moment
it is saturday.
sunday down under.
where we play in the shadows
every week.
may you experience that beautiful chord today.
just BE.
