Flower Power


"Have a heart that never hardens, 
and a temper that never tires, 
and a touch that never hurts."
~ Charles Dickens ~

My gardenia plant and celosia

My fabulous brother in law Pat
made me this Island Splash (name of paint for this planter)
Planter designed from my original one from my former home
but his one is a smaller version.
My sister put a red geranium in it.
Thanks for the love  Pat and Debbie

Fresh basil fuschia plant and straw flowers and jasmine
and the hummingbird feeder I can never keep filled quite enough
as they love it so much

Where I go to get library books near our condo

Flowers forever make me happy and I am always burning
my Island getaway candle

Have a fabulous day 
in every way

“Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life.” -Eckhart Tolle

"The very strength that protects the
heart from injury is the strength that
prevents the heart from enlarging to 
its intended greatness within. The
song of the voice is sweet, but the song
of the heart is the pure voice of heaven."
~ Kahlil Gibran ~

My sweet friend Matthew down the hall made this
beautiful flower arrangement for me.
I love it Bamboo black stone and a gorgeous flower
Each tenant in our building is an absolute angel

Beautiful flower arrangement from my sweet friend

Safe travels my darling ones

Woman came about because, one sunny afternoon in Bermuda, it suddenly hit me. I saw what women do for us. Not just what my Yoko does for me, although I was thinking in those personal terms. Any truth is universal. If we'd made our album in the third person and called it Freda and Ada or Tommy and had dressed up in clown suits with lipstick and created characters other than us, maybe a Ziggy Stardust, would it be more acceptable? It's not our style of art; our life is our art... Anyway, in Bermuda, what suddenly dawned on me was everything I was taking for granted. Women really are the other half of the sky, as I whisper at the beginning of the song. And it just sort of hit me like a flood, and it came out like that. The song reminds me of a Beatles track, but I wasn't trying to make it sound like that. I did it as I did Girl many years ago. So this is the grown-up version of Girl.
-John Lennon, 1980
This dad and daughter are our heroes of the day!
Lee Beck and his daughter Amelie just celebrated their birthdays. Lee turned 32 - Amelie turned 7. So they decided to celebrate by performing 39 acts of kindness, for their combined ages.
A few of their acts of kindness:
• They left money on vending machines……
• Wrote a letter to a restaurant manager to compliment their server…… 
• Left a $20 Toys R Us gift card in the mailbox of someone who they thought could use it……
• Donated books to a Children's Hospital……
• Lee also became an organ donor.
Lee says: "Amelie regularly remarks about kindness, and is very loving. When I mentioned the idea to her she instantly starting talking about some of the people we could help."
You can check out their acts of kindness here:

Father's Day Prayer

Father’s Day Prayer
Let us praise those fathers who have striven to balance the demands of work, marriage, and children with an honest awareness of both joy and sacrifice. Let us praise those fathers who, lacking a good model for a father, have worked to become a good father.
Let us praise those fathers who by their own account were not always there for their children, but who continue to offer those children, now grown, their love and support. Let us pray for those fathers who have been wounded by the neglect and hostility of their children.
Let us praise those fathers who, despite divorce, have remained in their children's lives. Let us praise those fathers whose children are adopted, and whose love and support has offered healing.
Let us praise those fathers who, as stepfathers, freely choose the obligation of fatherhood and earned their step children's love and respect. Let us praise those fathers who have lost a child to death, and continue to hold the child in their heart.
Let us praise those men who have no children, but cherish the next generation as if they were their own.
Let us praise those men who have "fathered" us in their role as mentors and guides.
Let us praise those men who are about to become fathers; may they openly delight in their children.
And let us praise those fathers who have died, but live on in our memory and whose love continues to nurture us.
Kirk Loadman
In Jesus Name I pray, amen
Psalm 103:13
Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him.
Proverbs 3:11-12
11 My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction:
12 For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.

Remembering all the great father's  step fathers, grandfathers and all good men today
both on earth and in Heaven

Why God Created Fathers

When God created Fathers, He made two loving arms
To cradle us and shelter us from the worldly harm.
When God created Fathers, He made a pair of hands
To care for us and guide us through our choices and our plans.
When God created Fathers, He made the warmest heart
To understand and give our lives a happy, loving start.
Why God created Fathers, is not a mystery. . .
He meant to share His love with us and did it perfectly.

Blessings on the fathers that guide their children,
that love them perfectly.
For some this father is a dream
For some this father is a special man that steps in
to love us unconditionally.
It may be an uncle, friend, or grandfather that takes
up the banner strong.
God bless these special fathers on this day set aside just for them.
Poem written by my dear friend
and it is on her blog

~Happy 1st Day of Summer!~ ~♥~♥

Happy Summer! 
In the Northern Hemisphere, summer officially begins at 12:39 p.m. EDT. It’s the longest day of the year and old folklore says whatever you dream about tonight will come to pass. 
From here on out, each day will get just a little bit shorter until the winter solstice in December.

Beauitful creation from my lovely friend Dani
Love you 

Happy Father's Day
