I Heart Macro 79 and Hakarat Hatov 16
November leaves remain steadfast,
tho’ wind attempts to wrest them from their temporal place of glory.
They are not ready to let go.
Illuminated from behind,
while inner beauty,
breath exhaled in visible vaporous clouds,
does not deter their clinging
to one more day of living.
Faith as I understand it is trusting that someone, something, loving Presence has your back; believes in you, in me, in what we offer to this life, simply by being who we are. Our whole-broken-holy selves are enough. Even in our darkest times, this bright light of unconditional LOVE supports us so that it is possible for our own beauty, color, radiance to shine out into the world. Faith is another form of letting go. Perhaps this is what the leaves are truly attached to. While it appears that they are clinging to the branch, even a leaf knows this is temporary. Why not be brilliant while the wind provides music and rhythm to dance in the sun? There is still a sip of sap flowing through their veins.
Be grateful for this day, this breath,
this is your moment to shine.
Welcome to Week Seventy-Nine

"Pure awareness transcends thinking... It allows you to look at the world once again with open eyes. And when you do so, a sense of wonder and quiet contentment begins to reappear in your life."~Mark Williams and Danny Pennman, from Mindfulness An Eight-Week Plan For Finding Peace In A Frantic World
It is time for YOU to share the love up-close with YOUR
I Heart Macro offerings!

I'm actually sick today with some kind of "bug" it seems, so may not be able to visit you as my head is dizzy each time I lift it, and I just feel kind of blah. Plus I have a lot of work to do to prepare the "Quilt"… but not today. Tea, toast and cuddled under blankets, that's my plan at least until morning.
