Saturday's Inner Journey message

Getting down to essentials

"Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art of leaving things undone. The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials."
-- Lin Yutang
Do you feel a desire to simplify your life?
If you say ‘yes,’ then set an intention to reduce the demands, stimuli, interruptions and busyness in your life. We each have the power to do this – we simply have to begin to say ‘no’ to those activities that don’t directly serve what we want for our lives.
Everyone of this planet deserves to have some free time to think, relax and have fun. If you long for this, begin now to clear your plate and allow a new level of experience to happen in your life. Take charge. Eliminate time wasters. Make some decisions about what matters to you.
"The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak."
-- Hans Hofmann

The Simple Life

The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life. ~Robert Louis Stevenson
This is my girlfriend's front porch in Candler, North Carolina. Relaxing, inviting, something to look forward to at the end of every day.

Summer's Bounty

This morning I walked for an hour and a half. On the way back, stopped by the Farmer's Market near the library and bought some fresh green beans and new potatoes. The squash and zucchini are from Gwen's garden.
Love is to the heart what the summer is to the farmer's year - it brings to harvest all the loveliest flowers of the soul. ~Author Unknown

Simple Summer Pleasures

Good morning!

How glorious a greeting the sun gives the mountains! ~John Muir

Something old becomes new again

My cousin, Gwen, and I went to a consignment shop today. I just love looking at all the things that others have decided they no longer need. This basket is made from broken dishes -- a great way to recycle and make something new again.
"Let the beauty we love be what we do." -- Rumi

Gifts from the Heart

Handmade gifts are heartmade gifts. I enjoy making and giving gifts. This is something I crocheted and scrapped for my cousin, Gwen. Friends make life sweeter!
