Nature…consecrated elements

Emotional week, started off with the death of my mother n law. She has been sadly aging with Alzheimer’s these last few years. Visits would be silent, as if we were with a child, a silent one, who viewed us as kind strangers. Moments like these bring me to thoughts about one of my favorite movies; The Notebook, nevertheless, found time spent was almost like pulling teeth..stagnant air.

Suffering is a mystery, an atmosphere I wish to avoid…like the plague.

I suppose avoidance is the plague, from within. To counter act this force,  one must “forsake not the gathering together”  Is it truly this simple?   To be called to sup, for this is the bread of Life!

To give thanks, cancel out the breath of fear, worry and shame! Yes, REJOICE and rest during this sunset of truth

About Brenda

"Brenda adores the birds. She is enchanted with their grace, their beauty. It was the birds and being out among them that gave her the peace she so needed and forged a new passion She uses a camera to capture those incredible moments, to savor them and share them with others. For her the camera was freedom. Brenda spent her life healing others, and dealing with incredible pain and despair. The world of birds and nature and photography was what she turned to in order to see the beautiful side of the world" -Eric Curtis Cummings

    Sorry for the loss in your family. Seeing someone physically “there” but not emotionally there must be one of the hardest things to endure. However, there is yet one more aspect to life. Perhaps she was still spiritually there. That’s personal and can’t be seen or measured. And who knows what in the long run your visits may have accomplished? Blessings.
