Morning Thoughts

For All, I wish you enough
Know your own truth,
Stand UP
Embrace the light
For all of you, and for our Mother Earth, Father Sky
our Ancestors, those who have crossed over
and all living things
I give Thanks
It is!

Sitting and just thinking how blessed I am as I wait patiently for mornings sun to rise...
all is quiet here this morning, even the 4-leggeds decided to sleep during my coffee making.

Nana's girl is doing "her thing" with attitude and swagga on those crutches,
no cast yet
still keeping that positive energy going
and still
she and "the mamma" both
appreciating all the thoughts and prayers from all,
as does Nana.

Godson (#51 of the Bobcats)
 D'Vante and his team
were on the prowl once again last night
winning their third straight football game!
Little Godson Kamryn (#10 Bobcats)
recovered a fumble last week for his Olivia and played hard for her
as his team claimed their first win of their season of Bobcat football as well!

The light is changing... have you noticed?
I'm thinking this morning ...
Know your truth...
yep that's where my thoughts are ~
"the proof is in the puddin"

 Know Your Own Truth
No one can define the things that we know to be true about ourselves.
 No one can define those truths for us.

 Others can provide insights, others can perhaps reveal to us truths that we have not yet owned, but no one knows our heart better than we do. No one can identify what beliefs we hold, what values we treasure and live by but ourselves. Others may be able to make accurate and astute observations about our behaviors, and may well feel free to announce their assumptions. That does not mean that they are right.

In our hearts, in our souls, where our personal beliefs and truths live are really only known to us.

They may be the face we show, or the face others believe they see, but only we can own them, for they are ours alone with the Universal Oneness that lives within us. As unique as our fingerprint, ours alone...

Only we make those very personal choices that govern our lives, our dreams, our private fears and magical thinking.
No one has the power to take them away.
They are diminished only by self doubt.

If we give up our personal power to others, we nurture self doubt.

How would this serve us?

We are each who we choose to be, now and always.

Some choices are good, some may be less than we wish, but they are our truths.
Take ownership of who you are spiritually,
personally and wholly.
Invest in yourself.

 If you feel unclear on the belief system that governs your life, spend time in reflection.

 Discover who your are and why your have embraced these definitions of your self.

Your insight understanding, knowledge of your beliefs is essential if you are to live your best life.
Let no one define who you are.

Let no one label or mislabel you.

You are exactly who you were meant to be.

 Not perfect yet.

But perfectly able and capable of becoming all that is possible in your life.

Turn away from those who do not honor and respect you.

They have their own work to do.

It has nothing to do with who you are.

Your life has been uniquely shaped by your Creator, God, The Universal Oneness of the Universe manifested within you.

We are each so special and unique, look once again at your fingerprint, there is no other like it in the world.

It is the way it was meant to be.

A huge community of people, each different.

I honor the difference in each of us.

 I hope to grow within myself day by magical day, and pray the same for each of us.

We are all a work in progress ~  There is a simple but profound Lakota prayer: Mitakuye Oyasin which means "all my relations" which encompasses all living things... So for today, we lift each other up, and know that we are all connected, all our relations ... here and in the next place...
Know your truth...
Take a Stand for you and those around you that you love, with honor and respect always... 

The fire is burning brightly, its embers are hot... Thoughts on the winds to those who visit here today

To those who have served and are serving this great Nation,
I thank you and your families. 

We are together in prayer, in thoughts of all that is needed to remind you out there, we are WARRIORS...

We are always alongside the journey with you, along with some powerful angels... May you find comfort in knowing we are with you always: AND for that I give thanks, and so it is!

wE ARE UNIQUE AND SO GLAD THAT WE ARE. Would not want the entire world to look like me, nor would I like to be like anyone else. I do own my beliefs. I trust my heart and allow it to govern my head.

Wow, today's blog reminds me of the first time
I met Sherry. Your writing today makes me think somehow SEDONA rattled up a GREAT rythym
or awakening of sorts. Hope you do not mind that I said that, but you are so very right-on with words regarding WHO WE ARE inside, that only we know, and the truth is within us.
I love today's message way too much to make sense of my comment. Just know my heart is full after reading...... Happy Saturday to all
and s t a y F I R M always.....
