Monday Morning Moment Of Zen

There’s not much better a way to start the day than watching the sun rise. Couple that with the beautiful Gulf of Mexico and you really have something special. I thought we could all use this one 👇🏻



Enjoy your day!

Saturday’s Ain’t Cheap!

Most of us work for a living. Like that old song, “Working 9 to 5”… Monday thru Friday,  to make a living! In many ways Saturday and Sunday are our reward. There are only 52 Saturday’s and 52 Sunday’s in a year.. And Sunday belongs to the Lord! That makes Saturday VERY valuable! You don’t want to waste one if you can help it😊 I’ll tell ya’, Saturday is an institution around here! And, they ain’t cheap! 💥

Even the Killer’ loved him some Saturday night! 💥

I’ll keep it short and sweet this morning  – I just watched a perfect Sunrise, had a great breakfast & now I’m headed out! Planning on wrapping it up with a killer Sunset from a special spot & enjoying a cool ‘Saturday Night’! Boom 💥 Hope y’all can do the same 😊

Even Jerry Lee loves a Tennessee Saturday Night! 👇🏻

 

See y’all in the morning 😎

Beauty In The Rising & Setting Sun | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

If you follow my Blog or my Facebook page you know I LOVE Sunrises and Sunsets. I try to get good angles and take pretty pictures of them & then post em’ 😊 I thought about how many I have sat and waited for over the years last night while Jo & I sat on the bank of the river waiting on the perfect picture…

This was last nights sunset. There was a nice breeze blowing and the ‘Feeling’ was in the air 😊

Here’s a few Sunrises and Sunsets from my archives. Many of them hold special memories and significance for me.

 

Go out tonight & enjoy the Sunset 😊

Sunday Reflections…

I’ve been sitting on a stump by the edge of a field since right after sunrise this morning, just thinking 🤔 Contemplating…

Life is short, what will today bring? So many blessings!

“Who made the world?
Who made the swan, and the black bear?
Who made the grasshopper?
This grasshopper, I mean–
the one who has flung herself out of the grass,
the one who is eating sugar out of my hand,
who is moving her jaws back and forth instead of up and down–
who is gazing around with her enormous and complicated eyes.
Now she lifts her pale forearms and thoroughly washes her face.
Now she snaps her wings open, and floats away.
I don’t know exactly what a prayer is.
I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down
into the grass, how to kneel in the grass,
how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields,
which is what I have been doing all day.
Tell me, what else should I have done?
Doesn’t everything die at last, and too soon?
Tell me, what is it you plan to do
With your one wild and precious life?”

~ Mary Oliver

 

Have a Blessed Sunday,

Sunday Reflections…

Beautiful sunrise this morning! I Love watching the Sunrise! I was thinking this morning how simple & available it is, but few take advantage of the beauty & power of a Sunrise. To me it’s a simple blessing that comes everyday to enjoy… The older I get the more I crave it 😊

“As the years pass, I am coming more and more to understand that it is the common, everyday blessings of our common everyday lives for which we should be particularly grateful. They are the things that fill our lives with comfort and our hearts with gladness — just the pure air to breathe and the strength to breath it; just warmth and shelter and home folks; just plain food that gives us strength; the bright sunshine on a cold day; and a cool breeze when the day is warm.”

~ Laura Ingalls Wilder

 

Have a great Sunday!

Moment of Zen…

I personally love this short video. I was the only person on the beach as far as you can see, the water was warm and the waves were gentle. What a perfect sunrise! 🌞 I hope it brings a little Zen to your Monday!

A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words…

Sometimes a picture can convey a mood & a feeling & sometimes, even more… A perfect 👌🏻 Sunrise is one of them 🌞

A picture is worth a thousand words… Have a great day!

 

Have a GREAT Day!
