Uplifting And Soothing

The second  all day rain  in the woods and another expected tomorrow.   This is a good time to finish addressing cards and wrapping gifts.   They are half of what they were in past years.
The decorations in the store room will remain untouched.    A wreath as you approach the cottage,
candles on the table, a few red flowers, small berry tree and an angel on my desk, that is about it.
The unadorned woods surrounding this cottage are magnificent and all that this
One Woman needs.


Since receiving the "Temple Coming Home" CD from Amazon,  it is listened to it on off throughout the day and even as I prepare for bed.   The music and the words are so peaceful and even though most of the words I cannot
pronounce and are unfamiliar I find they impart peace to my soul and I believe inner healing.
Listening to their soft words I find that I begin to slow down and feel peace.
Wish I had a load speaker and could play it throughout the woods !!
Reading the enclosed circular I discovered this is their first CD - hopefully there will be others.

I learned about this CD from a special friends sharing - Laura
you can find her at   http://orli-shines.blogspot.com/

Laura, this cd is playing at the moment. Wish you were near and could tell me how to pronounce some of the words. Thank for this gift...
Judy, yes - the time has come :)

Decorations?? It's true that what goes up has to come down; a lot more work. So much has changed since I was a little girl; even my own grandchildren don't know how happy Christmas was in the past. They all want electronic gifts and I'm totally lost when it comes to those things, so they just get money; takes the joy of giving away.

Charlotte, once again I smile - we have much in common. Of all things
my 6 and 8 year old wanted dictionary's. How neat is that.
Have a wonderful day. Trying to snow in the woods...

We are not doing much here either in the way of Yule decorations, just an evergreen wreath on the door, a tiny tiny tree, pine cones and candles. One simply cannot match the beauty of the woods at this time of the year, and it is silly to try!
