“I would rather be what God chose to make me
than the most glorious creature that I could think of;
for to have been thought about, born in God’s thought, and then made by God,
is the dearest, grandest and most precious thing in all thinking.”
~ George MacDonald

(Mushroom Madness – Day 2 )
How does one climb a towering tree? – one small inch at a time.
Mushroom Madness is here!
I love to get down on the forest floor and hunt for these fun – gi in their habitat. Most are quite tiny – less than 5 cm tall.
Join me for a new mushroom image every day for the next 8 days.
I hope you’ll discover how endearing and full of personality the humble ‘shroom really is.
The road to freedom must be travelled -
though it is paved with much hardship and suffering;
though uncertain of what the destination will look like;
we are born to reach it.
Thank you to the men, women, and families that suffered much for our country’s freedom.…
Every leaf speaks bliss to me,
Fluttering from the autumn tree.

This is the land I have been looking for all my life, though I never knew it till now…

I call as my heart grows faint;
lead me to the rock
that is higher than I.

Happy Thanksgiving Canada!
I’m thankful for bounty – in all areas of life.
And to celebrate I’m indulging in a fig feast this morning. Yum!
From within or from behind,
a light shines through us upon things,
and makes us aware that we are nothing,
but the light is all.

…. a door to the treasure room opened to me.
I was dazzled with the array of riches, the sparkling glittering strands of frozen pearls
and dew draped webs like bejewelled scarves
with which Earth had covered her head in an act of worship.

Anyone can count the seeds in an apple,

buy a loaf of bread with one,
and a lily with the other.

But we can do small things with great love.

Sunny with a chance of blackberries.
Just to love! She did not ask to be loved.
It was rapture enough just to sit there beside him in silence,
alone in the summer night in the white splendor of moonshine…
~ L.M. Montgomery, The Blue Castle
