Prayer for Overcoming Life's Hardships
O Lord, we call upon You in our time of sorrow, That You give us the strength and will to bear our heavy burdens, until we can again feel the warmth and love of Your divine compassion. Be mindful of us and have mercy on us while we struggle to comprehend life's hardships.
Keep us ever in Your watch, til we can walk again with light hearts and renewed spirits. Amen.

that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly,
like pearls slipping off a string.” ~L.M. Montgomery

Sweet Happy Life

My wish for you, sweet happy life

With all my heart, sweet happy life
And may the night times that follow the day be dancing nights
Stars for your smile, moons for your hair
And someones wonderful love for your loving heart to share
My wish for you, sweet happy life
May all your sorrows be gone and your heart begin to sing
And if a wish can make it be
I wish you spend everyday of your happy life with me

Stars for your smile, moons for you hair
And someones wonderful love for your loving heart to share
My wish for you, sweet happy life
May all your sorrows be gone and your heart begin to sing
And if a wish can make it be
I wish you spend everyday of your happy life with me

Happy Sweetest Day♥

Stars for your smile

My wish for you 
Sweet Happy Life
May all your sorrows be gone
and your heart begin to sing

I wish for you to spend every day of your happy
life with me

My sweetheart and I just picked up our brand new 2010 van
we are off to celebrate

In the end I believe God will ask you
How well did you love

I love you♥

I am a truly blessed woman to be loved so well.
Thank you God for your sweetness and all my blessings in life♥

When we are born, the soul we are given
Splits apart and half of it is given to someone else
So all of our lives we are looking 
for the other half of our soul
And if we are lucky enough to ever find that person
Our soul says, "At last, I can rest.
I have found my missing half."
Then, it is said, we have found our soul mate
and we are happy and at peace
When I saw you, when we first met
You were familiar, you were known
When I saw you, when we first met
My heart recognized you as part of its own!

Happy Sweetest Day everyone♥

Love is a symbol of eternity
It wipes out all sense of time
destroying all memory of a beginning
and all fear
of an end

The Promise
Across the years I will walk with you
in deep green forests;
on shores of sand
And then when our time on earth is through
In Heaven, too, you will have my hand
~Robert Sexton

for two pumpkin spice lattes:
2 cups whole milk
2 Tablespoons pure canned pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
2 Tablespoons dark brown sugar
1 Tablespoon pure bourbon vanilla (we love Trader Joe’s brand!)
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
a little pinch of cayenne pepper
2 shots freshly brewed espresso
whipped cream and pumpkin candies for garnish
freshly grated nutmeg (optional)
In a 2 quart saucepan, heat milk, pumpkin and brown sugar over medium heat. Heat just until hot (don’t boil.) Remove from heat. Using a wire whisk, stir in the pumpkin pie spice, cayenne, vanilla and espresso. Mix well. Pour into two large mugs. Garnish with sweetened whipped cream (we used Redi Whip), and some cute pumpkin candies. Sprinkle on a little fresh nutmeg, if you wish.

The Beauty of Pink

I love this quote and 
the pink outfit below
Pink is a beautiful colour to me

Prioritize your life around kind, loving people!

The body heals with play, the mind heals with laughter, and the spirit heals with joy. Proverb

Happy are those who take life day by day, complain very little, and are thankful for the little things in life
I love to watch him dance

what page it’s on in the story of itself.
Close the book. Burn the bookmark.
End of story. Now the dancing begins!"

Fear Less Hope More

I love this song.
Thanks Chel

.৲)ྀ...৲)ྀ Good morning. Smile, it increases your face value

Fear less, hope more; 
eat less, chew more; 
whine less, breathe more; 
talk less, say more; 
hate less, love more; 
and all good things are yours.
~ Swedish proverb

When you're feeling lonely, visit an elderly neighbor who lives alone. When you're scared, help someone else be brave. When you're stuck, encourage a friend to take a small step. When you're depressed, make someone smile. When you're defeated, cheer someone else on. When your heart is broken, help someone mend theirs. And when things are going well and are unfolding the way you want, be grateful and bring someone else along with you.

“Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some people move our souls to dance. They awaken us to a new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom. Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon. They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same.”

Link in my side bar

~Good Earth Winter Bean Salad~
serves 4
3/4 cup black beans, dry
3/4 cup black-eyed peas, dry
1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup tamari sauce
1/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons lime juice
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon cumin
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
2 red bell peppers, diced
1 small red onion, chopped
1 and 1/2 cups fresh or frozen corn (cooked/thawed)
1 and 1/2 Tablespoons minced jalapeno or serrano peppers
To prepare:
Soak black beans and black-eyed peas in water overnight. Soak in separate containers. Gently simmer (still separately) until tender, about 1 hour. Whisk the olive oil, tamari, lime juice, garlic, cumin and cilantro together. Cool the beans slightly. Drain the beans well. Combine and mix with the dressing while still warm. Cover and chill completely.
To serve:
Place a bed of chopped, fresh spinach and tomatoes on individual serving plates. Top each with about 1 and 1/2 cups of the winter bean salad. Then top with the cooked corn, a little purple onion, red pepper, jalapeno and a drizzle of your favorite hot sauce.
I like to add a little curry powder to the marinade ingredients. I’ve also used canned beans for this recipe which is still pretty good, but not quite the same. This time I added cooked chicken breast chunks to our salads for an extra boost of protein, but you certainly can serve it without the chicken for a satisfying vegetarian meal!

Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.

This moment--this day--is as good as any moment in all eternity. I shall make of this day--each moment of this day--a heaven on earth.
