"When we innocently pass through a day without acknowledging our good, we are denying ourselves a sense of pleasure and delight. We lose a consciousness of expectation that things will continue to get even better. Gratitude is it's own prayer." -- from "Taking it for Granted," Spirit Coach Gregory Fisher's daily e-blast, Oct. 19, 2011
From Waves of Gratitude: "On numerous occasions throughout a single day nature offers us signs of beauty for free. The artistry of a sunrise against a cloudy sky, the peacefulness of a sunset when another day has gone by. The stars that are sprinkled across the dark canvas of night that sometimes pale to full moons light. The sound of leaves rustling in the breeze or the birds as the sing in the trees."
"These are there to remind us that if nature awakens after a storm to display such beauty that surely so can we. The past is the past the beauty is in the moment that allows you to paint or sketch your own destiny, your own future."
I gratefully sing a seasonal song of color from local farm stands bringing happy to my little porch....
Clarity to say grace, give space and walk my own way....
When Life delivers pain, Joy can be equally intense. I am finding Intense JOY in the shapes and colors of leaves during my daily walks. Our world is the Creator's palette and I'm swimming in the colors of Autumn Joy.

Oh the fun we have had this fall walking our errands in our new suburban shopping district.
Thank you Mother Nature-Great Artist-Divine!
