Sunday Reflections…

As I was sitting this morning writing My blog, my phone chirped… Text message. It was my cousin Kim. She lives along the gulf coast not too far from where the approaching Hurricane Ida is coming ashore. Outer bands of rain are already creating localized flash flooding and the winds are strong. She said they are going to ride it out, told me she loved me and asked for prayers 🙏🏻

Hurricanes bring heavy wind and floods so they are always a threat. But my cousin Kim and her brothers and sisters grew up down there and they have rode out many a storm.

That’s me in the redneck Santa hat with my sister and our Mobile Alabama cousins. We try to always get together around the holidays ❤️

So today I’m gonna say a special prayer for Kim and all the folks down on the Gulf Coast. Ida is coming and she’s bringing a mess with her 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

Your welcome to join me in saying a prayer for all the good folks down there as well 🙏🏻

“I have both the violent turbulence of the storm and the quiet promises of God in the storm. And what I must work to remember is that something is not necessarily stronger simply because it’s louder.”

Have a great Sunday afternoon ☀️

Monday Morning Moment of Zen

I simply Love the sound of a Waterfall! So relaxing, so soothing… Here’s my next favorite Water sound. Even on a gloomy, stormy day it will relax your mind. Pull up a lounge chair and listen to this👇🏻

I could lay down there on a lounge chair and drift off in a moment… Zen bliss 🌊

Have a great Monday!

Throwback Thursday Love

Being in a seasonal business like I am, I have learned to take our time off during the slow season. In other words, Winter… January usually finds me on a beach somewhere down On the Gulf Coast. I was looking through some pictures of vacations past and came across this one of my son and I standing on a beach together. The funny thing to me was, I remember the exact time and day it was taken. I remember the conversation we were having. I remember where we went for dinner that evening. Many times putting a Picture with a memory brings it all together and Boom 💥 You actually remember that moment and get to almost relive it. Maybe that’s why I enjoy #throwbackthursdsy so much.

My son and me on the beach watching a sunset together. We have watched many a Sunrise 🌅 and Sunset 🌇 together. Always special #throwbackthursdsy

Enjoy your day! Throwback Thursday sometimes let’s you glance back for a moment, to gain clarity on what to look forward to again…

Monday Morning Moment Of Zen | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Here’s my last Sunrise over the Gulf… What a calm & perfect morning! The water was so calm it was like a pond almost. So many people got their smaller boats out in the Gulf on this day! It was unbelievable seeing small fishing boats fishing up and down the beach. Awesome 🌞

What a beautiful, Zen like feeling you get from watching the Sunrise ❤️ Especially over the water or combined with the sound of a Waterfall! Enjoy your day.

Enjoy this beautiful day!

Sunday Reflections…

What a beautiful morning! This picture says it all – a Beautiful sunrise under a bank of invading clouds. The rain is coming, but not before the Sunrise. No longer than I got my picture, the rain got here. Feels like Spring 😊

The cloud bank was almost all the way in, but the Sunrise beat it! So beautiful. Behind me, the rain was coming.

 

Enjoy your day ❤️

“Living in L.A.
Lower Alabama
Spanish moss, azaleas
A deep south panorama, Lower Alabama
So far south, can’t get no farther
Off the map, feet hitting water
A little taste of the bayou
A little twang in our talk
Folks are friendly when they greet you
We say sir and ma’am and y’all
We love sweet tea, our chicken fried
Shrimp and grits, and pecan pie
And watermelon in season
Man, I love the smell of bacon
Smells like Sunday morning
Like America, tastes like freedom
Living in L.A.
Lower Alabama
Spanish moss, azaleas
A deep south panorama, Lower Alabama
So far south, can’t get no farther
Off the map, feet hitting water”

I don’t know about you, but I Love the Gulf! There isn’t many places where you can relax like you can at the beach. The wind, the waves, the sand… Very Zen 😎

Enjoy the sun ☀️ and a little ‘Sound Therapy’

Gulf Coast Zen …

 

I hope this brings a little relaxation and ease to your morning 😊

Monday Morning Moment of Zen …

What a beautiful morning! The tide is going out leaving these shallow tidal pools, warm & full of life… small crabs, minnows & lots of sea shells are left behind. Not to mention the Herons…

This Heron makes a living stealing bait 😊

 

The sound and sight of the Gulf is my offering for today’s Moment of Zen.

Happy Pondering 🤔
