I cut up the ink splashes in 4 pieces and decided to do something on each one. Well not working out to well. This is my favorite one. I would love to be able to draw just not my thing I guess.. I used stamps on most of them...
I got this in my Daily OM letter today, I thought it was so beautiful I wanted to share it.. Enjoy......
Elegant Blessings Living A Life Of Grace Grace exists inside of all of us and around us. It is our inner beauty that radiates outward, touching everyone we meet. It is that unseen hand that comes from the divine, raising us up when we most need it. To be able to live in a state of grace is not based on worthiness, nor is it earned through good deeds, ritual, or sacrifice. Rather it is an unearned favor, freely bestowed and available to all, that is inherent to our birthright. All we must do is open our eyes to its presence and we will find and experience grace everywhere. Grace is in the rain bringing relief to drought-ridden farms, and the unexpected lead for the perfect job opportunity that comes from a stranger. Grace is what happens to someone when they miraculously escape injury; it is even the simple events that happen to us that we call “good luck,” like when we don’t get a parking ticket after are meter has expired. Grace resides in the love between two people, the gift or check that comes unexpectedly in the mail, the cozy comforts that make up a home, and in the acts of forgiveness we bestow upon others. It is grace that moves us to go out of our way to help a stranger. In music, a grace note is the pause between notes that is so important to the pacing of a song. Grace is the state we are in when we are doing nothing but just being who we are. When we accept that we always exist in a state of grace, we are able to live our lives more graciously. Knowing we are graced gives us hope, makes us more generous, and allows us to trust that we are taken care of even when we are going through difficult times. Grace is our benevolence of heart, and our generosity of spirit. Grace is unconditional love and the beauty that is our humanity. When we know that we are blessed with grace, we can’t help but want to live our lives in harmony.
Thanks to my sweet lovely niece Kim I got to have some dim sum. The Mall is in Missasaga a 30 min drive. So since I don't drive I wouldn't be able to go unless my sweet niece took me. Thanks a bunch Kim.. We also went in the Mall looked around went to the grocery store and I picked up stuff to make a big pot of chicken soup, I bought a smal whole bird to use. Then when I opened the pkg, surprise the head and feet were still attached YIKES it was hard to even touch it to cut them off LOL..

I have been on a spritual journey all my life. Wondering who I am, why I am here..
I now know, I AM, the observer of my life.
I was here all the time :)..
My journey now is to BE in the moment.
living in the present moment.
Getting to know the ESSENCE
of my self...

Thanks to my little sis Luci..
I am round. Round is me.
If it is not round. It is not me.
My face is round.
My cheeks are round.
The tip of my nose is round,
so are my eyes.
I have a round chin.
My tummy is round,
so are my toes.
I’m just happy that my feet are not round.
It would be tough to find round shoes.
I love it..
Its so me LOLThanks Luci.......
