December Sunset

I decided on Tuesday I would do a photo shoot of the sunset over the lake….I arrived there around 4:30 and started shooting the changes of the sunset.

It was so amazing to witness the changes right before my very eyes……I was there till about 6:00 and was able to capture the most amazing sunset I have ever seen this year…After the shoot I just sat in my car watching the sunset till the very end…and I thought to myself how lucky we are to live and witness such a beautiful event what a gift to us.

Spread love everywhere you go: First of all in your own house… let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God‘s kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness.”
              Mother Teresa of Calcutta


Listen to me

Please Listen

Please Listen

When I ask you to listen to me
and you start giving me advice,
you have not done what I asked.

When I ask you to listen to me
and you begin to tell me why I shouldn’t feel that way,
you are trampling on my feelings.

When I ask you to listen to me
and you feel you have to do something
to solve my problem,
you have failed me, strange as that may seem.

All I ask is that you listen.
Don’t talk or do – just hear me.
Advice is cheap – 20 cents will get you both
Dear Abby and Billy Graham in the same newspaper.
And I can do for myself; I am not helpless.
Maybe discouraged and faltering, but not helpless.

When you do something for me that I can
and need to do for myself,
you contribute to my fear and inadequacy.
But when you accept as a simple fact
that I feel what I feel, no matter how irrational,
then I can stop trying to convince you
and get about this business of understanding
what’s behind this irrational feeling.
And when that’s clear, the answers are obvious
and I don’t need advice.
Irrational feelings make sense
when we understand what’s behind them.

Perhaps that’s why prayer works – sometimes –
for some people, because God is mute.
and he doesn’t give advice or try to fix things.
God just listens and lets you work it out for yourself.

So please listen, and just hear me.
And if you want to talk,
wait a minute for your turn,
and I will listen to you.Listen to me

I found this poem Today and fell in Love with it….I think sometimes we just need someone to listen to us and not always be in a hurry to give us advice…..

What is LOVE?

Weekly Photo Challenge: LOVE
It is one of the most difficult questions for all of us…….

Time passes by,  relationships have bloomed and so has Love. but then sometimes the relationship falls apart…So would you define that as Love or infatuation?… Some people would say yes, it was just infatuation.  Some would say it was Love and some would say it was just a Love lesson to Learning a greater Love….So again, what is really the correct definition of LOVE ?

Weekly Photo Challenge(Reflections)

Can no one really define what LOVE is or give the proper definition of LOVE?…..                                               Weekly Photo Challenge: LOVE

To some Love is friendship that sparks on fire for others… Maybe,  love is like luck.  Some say…. You have to go all the way to the ends of the Earth to find it. Weekly Photo Challenge: LOVE

Well I think if we just step outside in Nature we can experience it, see it,  feel it and learn theses answers  to maybe, What Love is…. Just take a look around and you will see it, feel it…It’s everywhere… LOVE.

Where? right here out in Nature, its everywhere….Just stop and be still….. and take a deep breath…. When you look at the beautiful flower

Pink Columbine Flowers

And watch how it has grown from a seed to a beautiful colorful flower ….You see it, touch it and smell it…. and then think about how it makes you feel…It makes you feel alive and happy …..That is Love…. or maybe you notice a colorful butterfly

Orange Butterfly in the Garden

and notice how it gently fly’s by you and it goes from flower to flower so softly and gently and you notice how wonderful and beautiful that butterfly is….That is Love…or maybe how your pets are always by your side

Summer walk by the River with the Dogs

and how they are always so happy to see you when you come home…That is LOVE…..I think God has given us Nature to teach us LOVE….LOVE is Everywhere…We just need to stop and take a look around its there for all us. A Gift of LOVE from God.
