With each new day hidden treasures are explored.  Fresh air, crazy weather, hungry pets and nurturing relationships are focal points.  Whatever the case may be, even some trials can free us from being so earthbound.  The greatest treasure is that we are all loved and protected by a magnanimous Creator.


Good Morning!

Grab it, cajole it, receive it

The world is better for it

Thank You! My newcomers to this place.

Can you believe, March is tomorrow…I better start writing in green!

“Mystery creates wonder and wonder is the basis of man’s desire to understand.”

–Neil Armstrong

Neil Armstrong truly discovered the mysteries of outer space.

When I reflect on the ‘mysteries” that have occurred in my life I say WOW!  Only God could have done this or that for me.  In time have I been able to connect the dots to everything that has happened to me.  This leaves me speechless, yet I cannot fathom how awesome the good Lord has been to me.

By faith, I am given the mysteries of the incarnation, baptism, holy communion, and resurrection from death to live by.  Like putting a puzzle together, learning to fit into each opportunity is key to discovering your personal mystery.  You create suspense and question things to learn more and that builds confidence.  In essence, you develop a strong relationship with your own mysteries making for an amazing life.

How would you define your own mystery?

“Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting some on yourself.”

–Ralph Waldo Emerson

When I see my doggies playing together, I feel happy even if they don’t mind me at all.  I also ponder if they wonder about us caring for them.  I think they do especially when they want to be cuddled.

When I learned that all the animals in the Garden of Eden had lost their speaking ability when Adam and Eve were banished, I felt very sad.  God in his mercy did not want the animals to impose more trouble on the first couple and their generations than what their trials would be in life outside of paradise.  Then I learned through Kat Kerr that my five animals wait for us in heaven, where they will let us know how well or not, we cared for them…that’s animal magic and something to think about!

What is your best definition of happiness?

Thank you, Ralph, for inspiring this post.

“Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood.  Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.”

–Marie Curie

If you answer, yes, you are more likely to be positive, passionate and joyful.  Someone who is bold and unforgettable is fierce-some with the challenge of overcoming any fears.  I have had many occasions to be fierce in my life.  The courage I needed at each instant came from my merciful Lord who empowered me to forge beyond unimaginable sorrows…and gratefully do I stand tall.

I hope you see yourself as fierce-some against any fears that may limit you.  In so doing, empowering yourself will empower others to do the same.  Being dynamic and surprising will inspire excellence.

“I myself will see Him with my own eyes — I, and not another.  How my heart yearns within me!”

–JOB 19:27


Words waking me up

“I will see him as I AM”

The joy of His Voice

“We know that when He appears we will be like Him, because we will see Him as He is.”

-1 John 3:2

Until this promise is fulfilled, we can see Him through the glory of nature, the written Word and in the personal experience of everyone who seek Him.
