Singing Spring

Namaste lucky leprechauns of love filled light! Greetings this magical March moment of green spring break singing and St. Patricks Day celebrations! We left our Sutter Creek green rolling hills on Saturday including grandpa’s cows and wild white cat …

Our New Thought & Creative Spirit Families March PlayShop was Friday night instead of our usual Sunday afternoon. The intergenerational inspirations were alive and well with our theme of branches, trees, flowers and bees:

I so love the heart sharing of all ages and the light of accomplishment that smiles in the simple creation process …above are some “Bee Love” creations from some of our youngest ~ and oldest! Young Michael is showing his creatively constructed bee, his heart felt tree and his flower where the bee came in for a landing! The simple freedom of creativity and moments of awareness opened us all for planting seeds of … patience, music, power, creativity, family, … responsibility! Michael’s older brother Carter who spoke such words of encouragement last year about continuing our local monthly Playshops chose to plant seeds of responsibility ~ which prompted us all to sing the opening verse of “In Our Hands“! Carter also shared while taking his affirmation off the Easter Tree that he has been making his own affirmations and putting them into a box to share … my goodness, our PlayShop Love practice has branched out ~ woo hoo! So of course I invited Carter to provide the affirmations next month and I can’t wait to read them and experience others reading them too! Thank you Carter! Thank You God! Ah, how good it feels when the roots of Love branch out!

Meanwhile another note of gratitude for my sister keeping my dad this week … we drove 3 hours south on Saturday and left my dad with her for the week … whew! ~Can’t tell you how free I feel! And then another hour and a half south to see old friends … the minister and his family that left our local Methodist church and Jeremiah’s old best friend JJ:

Jeremiah and I sang in their church Sunday morning which was an uplifting experience ~ for all! We sang in conjunction with the message about letting go and giving up for Lent all for the purpose of allowing more of the truth of who we are as spiritual and Spirit filled beings to flow through us ~ as us. Their church building was over one hundred years old with wonderful stained glass ~ ooh how I love stained glass!

And I gotta say, I do love a good church service! While we are much more aligned with the metaphysical Christianity of New Thought ~ Unity, Church of Religious Science, et al, the sweetness of the Methodist is always welcome! Paster Alex is a musical minister ~ plays piano, guitar, sings, and it really made my heart feel at home ~ mm mm good! Doing music with my teenage Jeremiah was also so much faith filled fun! And then we drove … and drove … and drove!  My printed directions didn’t pan out so co-pilot Jeremiah took over on his phone GPS which apparently “GPS loses signal” ~ and the co-pilot too! ~ in the dessert highways between California and Arizona …

A bladder break at 6 hours of driving … and … After some 10.5 hours after leaving our friends, we arrived at our AZ hotel late last night to meet Jeremiah’s dad for another spring break adventure. Here’s what I saw out the window this morning:
IMG_2072 And such is this blessed, abundant life in America! Thank you for being a witness to this week’s pictorial ‘Dear Diary’ entries! I am so grateful that you would share a mindful moment with me … What green blossomings are happening for you in this blessed time of Equinox?! Are you feeling leprechaun lucky? Blooming abundant? Or like a struggling green sprout determined to rise up from the darkness no matter what?! Whatever light, dark, green or brown bleakness this moment finds you in, may you be blessed on your journey … thanks for sharing ours … indeed, we are all a circle of LOVE growing in the hand of the master gardener. Namaste!
Free Shelf!
