Recollection of Summer

Summer Ends with BF&FF
Best Families and Friends Forever
Memories of old and memories of new,
forever etched in our heart, not a few.
For something old and something new,
something borrowed and something blue,
will keep us together as they always do..
Family of old and family of new,
forever etched in our heart, by a little "I do".
For friendships of old and friendships of new,
friendships aren't borrowed, friendships are glue,
they'll be back next summer as they always do..

Memorial Thoughts!

Memorial Day 2009

A Memorial, A Remembrance, go hand and hand,
To share a memory, by heart, will knit and band.

A Picture, A Saying, are to be seen and heard,
To be touched by emotion, of thoughtful word.

A Smile, A Gesture, can bring calm and heals.
To encourage by this, a great peace love feels.
A Memory, A Thought, when brought from the Heart,
To tenderly comfort day and night, shall never depart.
Dad and Mom, "Always in my Thoughts and Always in my Heart"

Favorite Picture On Facebook and Blogger!!!!

To Accomplish is to gain with effort and put in effect. Love is like that! With effort one can effect and accomplish great things, (to rephrase) "You accomplish me" and, "You had me at "Hi"." Love at first sight can be real. Love is patient, Love is kind, Love does not envy, Love does not boast, Love is not puffed up, Love is not rude, Love always trusts, Love always believes, and Love never fails. And now have faith, have believing, have love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.. Love takes effort and love will effect, determine with "thoughts from the Heart" what needs to be accomplished.

Starfish Hangout

" Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strength. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, this is strength." ~Unknown~
Falling upon a quote fitly spoken at the right time and right place gives you strength to decide not to surrender and stand up for what is right. Has to be a win-win situation!

3-6-9- The goose drank wine...Silly Songs Some remember!

Posted by Picasa
Photoshop is fun and therapeutic. Three layers of the same range, Six minutes of the same shot and nine photos of the same spectacular sunrise!
Something I don't ever want to live without is a balcony with a view!
There is no better way to start your day than with a sunrise,
your "Thoughts from the Heart" and prayer.
Thank God for all the wonders in life, miracles seen and not seen and
sunrises sure and faithful. (Click on photo for detail)

Cropped and Filtered!

One of the first daily tasks involve the coffee filter, allowing for a cup of 'good to the last drop' fresh brew. Next in line of daily tasks require a filtration system of thoughts, cropping that which we need and cropping out that which we don't. A filter is a device that removes something from whatever passes through it. Filter out the impurities, allowing 'good to the last drop' "Thoughts from the Heart". Like a respirator filters unto good clean air, so the heart filters and clears the air, making way for the day ahead, filled with sunshine, raindrops, rainbows and fresh smelling flowers.

How do you say goodbye to the people and things that you love? One way that can lessen the hurt and lift ones spirits, are the loving "Thoughts from the Heart" of memories and thankfulness, for those loved ones and special things that contributed to who you are today. Memories are meant to to be remembered and thankfulness can cause one to be cognisant of that which we still have. People, places and things, all which can contribute to where we go from here. Loving "Thoughts from the Heart" heal the brokenhearted. Staying connected, Priceless..

Beautiful Peacock

Challenges whether small, huge or global, force us to decide what we are going to do about them. A challenge is a call to engage in a contest or fight. A challenge can be a demanding or stimulating situation. It requires action using a balance of planning and managing the task at hand. Take it on and persevere til resolved. "The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a persons determination" ~Tommy Lasorda~

Life is a Highway..ride it all night long!

Hey...Which way do you go?
Looking for which way to go?..follow your heart..move forward day at a time..most of what we are looking for is right under our feet..the long and winding road that leads us to who know where, who knows where that long and winding road will lead us anyway..the road least traveled is always the most beautiful..the highway is most logical but the low road is spontaneous and full of adventure..even though, life is a highway and I want to ride it all night long!

The cloud of Responsibility..

Luke 14:22 says.. For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it.
Responsibility: a choice binding one to obligation,
with a course of action to get it done.
Obligation: a agreement to do whatsoever it takes to finish it.
Choose responsibility, obligation and agreements wisely.
Count the cost for reaching completion.
Carefully consider and calculate the cost of choice.
The cloud of responsibility dissipates, satisfaction surmounts, a clear sky and a new horizon make way for greater responsibility.

Sisters are a blessing..

Sistas, sistas..There were never such devoted sistas...

Those who've seen us..Knows that not a thing could come between us..
So Lord help the mista, who comes between me and my sista..
And Lord help the sista, who comes between me and my man..
"You keep your past by having sisters. As you get older, they're the only ones, who don't get bored, if you talk about your memories" ~Deborah Moggach

In's and Out's and Up's and Down's. Upside down Snapshot

When letting Outside thoughts In, choose, what can stay, and what must go.
Evaluate the up's, the down's, turn the downside up.
Situations in life demand choice, thought's need choosing, determine in's and out's, up's and down's.
Uplifting "thoughts from the Heart" are the upside of living.

Springtime at the watering hole..

The old saying .. Cold hands.. warm heart, works like that with "Thoughts from the heart" ..Brain freeze.. warm heart. So here it is.. Brain freeze doesn't occur because of drop in temperature. It happens from lack of sleep and not enough coffee. Words from a friend can thaw the brain and warm the heart ever so tenderly and humorously. Thank God for chatting, from sea to shinning sea, west coast to east coast words can soar high on a windy California morning. Love to all my friends. Proverbs 25:25 As cold water to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country. The East Coast can be considered a far country from San Diego!

Images recall memories..

Recall "Thoughts from the Heart" by exercise. Start with the year of birth. On a piece of paper list each year thereafter, one year per line, jot down next to each year the whereabouts in life's timeline. Picture events, achievements and accomplishments. Recall people, places and things. Good and bad will develop the ability to permit and facilitate thoughts, becoming a wondrous adventure. Retain Kodak moments, record, rewind and the priceless years and relive precious moments, Life is not meant to be lost, life is full of learning experiences and new challenges that a stroll down memory lane will help to ease on down the road. ~Kathy Ferrin~

How far you'll go..

How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these. ~George Washington Carver~

The Sun, the Sky and the Water become one..

Happy Easter and love to family and friends. All coming together to enjoy each others company, feasting and enjoying the wonderful aroma of homemade cooking and homemade loving. All coming together as One. One big happy family. "Thoughts from the heart" can make you a kid again, coloring the eggs and searching the overstuffed basket of green grass for that ever so chocolate bunny. Weather permitting, the Sunday morning ride to get the paper, preferably with your hair blowing in the wind and the sound of shifting gears that only a Model A can make, putting a smile on your face and the Ahooga in your heart.

What a difference a day makes..

Day One

"Thoughts from the heart" can seem closed up. Take one day at a time, softly and gently let thoughts blossom. Day-by-day life will ease and your heart will settle. Flowers heal the heart and thoughts of love unfold.
Psalm 147:3
He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.

Searching my heart, with "God's own Words"

My Top 5 List. Used 844 times and has many different usages, the word "Heart" in the Bible.. speaks loudly to my heart, just as if God Himself wrote it just for me!
So with that said, here are "Thoughts from God's Heart"
1. Psalm 37:4
Delight thyself also in the Lord:And He shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
2. Proverbs 4:23
Keep thy heart with all diligences: For out of it are the issues of life.
3. Matthew 6:21
For where your treasure (thought) is, there will your heart also be.
4. Matthew 12: 34b
..for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
5. I John 3:20
For if our heart comdemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.

The comfort in knowing God, is knowing that He sees my heart for what it is,
not what I think it is. For we are our own worst critic and God corrects us in "His own Words".

But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering (patient), gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness (humble), temperance (self control): against such there is no law.
Galatians 5: 22,23
Let your"Thoughts from the heart" be spirited, for this does your life good.

In the beginning!

Unlike restoration (restoring back to it's original state) something created is started from nothing. In the beginning God created.. in nature we don't create we only make, with what we have already been given. Enjoy the benefits by looking around and seeing all that God has done. (click on previous blogs, for pictures and thoughts inspired by creation) Restore the life within you, with thoughts from God's heart.

Restore to Original...

"Thoughts from the Heart" keep memories alive. Restore your thoughts, restore your memories because restoration is ageless. Agelessness is beauty and simplicity restored by originality. Thoughts and memories are meant to be kept forever. Renew, refresh, and rebuild. In doing so, one keeps the most wonderful memories alive. Antiques are priceless!

Just words from a friend...

Words from a friend can conjure up "Thoughts from the Heart" that warm your heart and snuggle up to on a rainy morning. Listening to rain will refresh and sooth the soul, like forever friends gathering along the shore to soak up the sun by day and watch the light from the lighthouse by night. Forever friends, like the lighthouse, is a 360 degree circle of light and love. (click on photo to see lighthouses)

" Don't let a bird of paradise fly up your nose"

Sorry for the pun but I have to wing it this morning! I'll be flying by the seat of my pants.. and there will not be feathers flying everywhere. One of my favorite sights in California is the beautiful Bird of Paradise. One doesn't have to watch the friendly sky's or listen for the morning chirps and tweets for the flock. No, Bird of Paradise is everywhere here on the ground and greatly admired, even in December. It doesn't fly south for the summer and it won't fly up your nose, it has no scent. Enjoy the photo and the chuckle. (click on photo to see details)

Another richly colored Sunset in the West

I often think that the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day. ~Vincent Van Gogh~ Sunset is like pulling down the shades and calling it a night. "Thoughts from the heart" are there to be yours alone because everyone else has gone to bed. Then a sweet sleep is your nights retreat.

Summers by the Sea...Glistening water, Soft rippling waves

Nothing is more memorable than a smell. One scent can be unexpected, momentary and fleeting, yet can conjure up a summer beside the sea. Smells detonate softly in our memory. Hit a tripwire of smell and memories explode all at once. Memory is a way of holding onto the things you love, the things you are and the things you never want to lose.
