Monday Morning Motivation through the Music. Jonny Diaz - Breathe

Image
I break life down into 4 categories. The Pain. The Journey.  The Joy.  The Beauty.  This was never my thought process until I was devastated by a man that promised to love me and  then after 37 years of marriage and promises I was blindsided by the truth.   That truth was a complete and utter betrayal of trust.  I know I am not alone.   There are countless areas of pain in life.  Disease, violence, divorce, betrayal, loss and the list goes on.    In the pain, and the journey to get through the pain we can find joy and beauty.

Motivation Through the Music.  Lyrics by Jonny Diaz The Pain "I’m feeling like I’m falling behind, it’s a crazy life
Ninety miles an hour going fast as I can
Trying to push a little harder trying to get the upper hand
So much to do in so little time, it’s a crazy life"
Jonny Diaz (I can relate to this.  It seems, at times, I can't keep up)
The Journey
"Breathe, just breathe Come and rest at My feet And be, just be Chaos calls but all you really need Is to j…

A Walk Around the Lake in Late Winter

Image
A beautiful cool day.  I decided to take a walk around the lake and see what I could find.

"Perhaps the truth depends on a walk around the lake." Wallace Stevens (I do pray on my walks so maybe Wallace is right:-)



"If you look closely at a tree you'll notice it's knots and dead branches, just like our bodies. What we learn is that beauty and imperfection go together wonderfully."  Matthew Fox

 "The park bench, a place to stop, embrace God's beauty,  pray in silence, and just breathe. " KathieyV:-)




I found some interesting birds...

Half way through my walk these beautiful huskies came jogging up the trail.  They made me smile!

A wonderful walk around the lake.  I can't wait to go back Happy Day Everyone! Get out and explore, KathieyV:-)

Celebrity Dairy Open Barn Event

Image
I have been to Celebrity Dairy 3 times for their open barn events.  So much fun.  The location is beautiful and the baby goats adorable.  They are open this weekend but sadly I will not be able to attend.  That won't stop me from going back and looking at my old blog posts and remembering the joy of my prior visits.  I will stop by their website and see what is happening.  Join me....
A quote from their site in regard to an open barn event...
"We'll have lots of kids by then, and chances are pretty good that more than one birth will occur during our Open Barn. No matter what the weather, the action occurs in the barn, and under a roof. Come dressed for the weather. If you're hungry, we'll have food and beverages available in the Inn." Celebrity Dairy






I just had a wonderful time exploring Celebrity Dairy via my blog. It is not only a farm but an Inn.  You can stay the night and enjoy a country breakfast and spend time with the goats.  Sounds heavenly to me.  I may…
