Weed(s) & Wild Flower(s)

appreciation attitude Breathing-Fragile-Life communication humility insights Joan Winifred lamentations of the heart leadership logic love moderation never giving up! pain reality respect safety things i learned wisdom worries

(The) perils a plenty of an Extraverted-Friendly-Nature-Chick like me…the hopeful-optimistic kind of fragile-life who enJOYs walking barefoot through blowing wind, grass, mud, dirt, sand, rain, snow…(and figuratively, too…IF needed to get the compassion job done.)

Some messy jobs can be extremely intellectually/physically/spiritually satisfying, You know. 🙂

Just curious…IF?? if…

You’re growing into a strangler/killer (mind) weed “at the ready to repay with evil”…that i should of pulled/chopped at the roots years ago…or (IF?? if) You’re blossoming into an Amazing-Compassion-Perennial-Beautiful-Wild Flower!:)…a Blessing!:)

(i’ll think the latter for now…till sufficiently proven otherwise.)

ummm, think hard joanie: what’s hanging over my head? …LIFE!…etc. idk ;)…(clouds, spiders, webs, clowns, conversations?-lol;)…laundry.

what’s under my feet?…

Caution joanie…bugs bite; gators snap; cats scratch…(even when You Care/Love them lots!).

God knows what He’s doing…!!! (continuing to try my best and let God of Compassion do the rest.)

btw: i’d rather suffer…for the compassionate/right/conscience-easing thing/choice…than suffer because of sheer stupidity/ignorance/complacency…or for the wrong thing.

 

(it’s a cloudy/raining day here in FL) 

Rain does help Wild Flowers grow, huh?:)

3 little birdies

attitude birds choice comfort compassion education Hope Joan Winifred mind food spiritual food things i learned worries

26 Observe intently the birds of heaven; they do not sow seed or reap or gather into storehouses, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. […] (Matthew 6:26)

To the animals he gives food,To the young ravens that call out for it. (Psalm 147:9)

An observation:  Do birds worry?!  No, they are busy eating, singing, flying, soaring–being birdies, lol 🙂

Worrying is paralyzing and damaging!… (and gets ya no where.)

“when” human“kind” (chooses compassion) …there is enough for everyone (to share)…🙂

the earth is rich!… full of plenty to sustain/maintain life… for birds, for people… for all-fellow-fragile-life!!… “when” man”cruel” selfishly mismanages Earth… misuses resources/abuses power…causing poverty, famine, hunger… and not just for food.

My positive outlook/Hope:  ultimately/eventually everything will be alright… with compassion (and Divine Intervention) education!

enjoyed this past reading(s)…

The Bible makes many references to birds, often to teach valuable lessons. For example, concerning the ostrich and its incredible speed, God said to a man named Job: “When she rises up and flaps her wings, she laughs at the horse and at its rider.”*The ostrich is the largest living bird, and it is the fastest runner, able to reach speeds of about 45 miles an hour (72 km/h) for short bursts.  (Job 39:13, 18) God also asked Job: “Is it by your understanding that the falcon soars, . . . or is it at your order that an eagle flies upward?” (Job 39:26, 27) The lesson? Birds perform their feats without any help from us. Their abilities testify to God’s wisdom, not ours. [excerpted “Observe Intently the BirdsAwake! 2014]

What i’ve come “to learn” through Bible study/practice (through the years)…is putting my personal preferences aside… and attempting to do “God’s” Will (and not just live by my own selfish will/desire/limited understanding/perspective of things/life)… aka living to the best of my abilities in harmony with the unfolding, progressive Divine Purpose… aka compassion, etc…things turn out alright & PEACE is found!:)

My experience: “there is more happiness in giving than there is in receiving.”

Check it out IF You🙂 choose…(further reading and research)…matthew/6/

Winter Weather Melancholia

comfort compassion Joan Winifred knowledge lamentations of the heart love never giving up! parenting reality stress management worries

Living in Florida (for 16 years now…WOW! where did the time go?!) am accustomed to mostly sunny days and mild temperatures… oh, and hurricane season, prep, etc.  Basically, I’ve turned into a winter-weather-wimp!;)

Winter has arrived! here and am very tired/exhausted, upset tummy, and generally feeling an over-all malaise (yesterday)… the Winter arrival corresponds with my brother’s departure back to Haiti… so, that could be some of it… the melancholia.

Plus, it’s not fun when your kid/s’ asthma is triggered by cold-er air.  It’s very worrisome when your young one(s) has an asthma attack or

labored breathing!🙁

Certain chronic health issues/concerns can be scary (i.e. Uncontrolled Bipolar Disorder, Uncontrolled Asthma) though these “certainly” teach various care-giving, compassion lessons of love, forgiveness, patience, endurance, etc.

Time with family is precious!… (and IF everyone is in the same place at the same time and healthy at the same time; rare)…and don’t know, for sure, when i will see my brother again during 2018. Life in Haiti is not easy to say the least… and his and his wife’s compassion life-style is exemplary!

They have literally endangered their own personal comfort-zones of living, health, well-being, their literal lives for the greater good and to help countless people through the years! Though, all of us can live that kind of self-sacrificing-unselfish-love, compassion-first-responsibility…closer to home if need be, eh?

Helping does come with risk factors (and fractals;)… not reckless, just necessary.

Compared to other colder places, what we are experiencing here in FL is mild! (For us–it’s cold, rainy-raw.) My thoughts and prayers are with all who are Braving the Truly Extreme Cold Elsewhere!!  Please stay healthy and warm!!:)

a childhood song…(which the concept always touched me deeply and made me cry like a little girl as a little girl & beyond;) and BTW: never, even as young kid, believed in a magic dragon, or a Santa Claus or an Easter Bunny; “fictional” characters) appropriate for today and came to me yesterday…”Puff the Magic Dragon” Peter, Paul, and Mary…

Journeys in life take us through immaturity to maturity, ups, downs (i.e. fighting melancholy mind-set(s)), all-arounds, and all kinds of weather, huh?!

Sometimes You Can’t Take the Journey For (or with) someone (no matter how much you love them!)

(wishing could fly to Haiti to help right now)

(wishing could breathe for my kid)

(wishing etc., etc.)

You may be able to assist, and encourage, support the process… indirectly/directly… or by proxy or prayers!

Perhaps? positive examples are the best teachers…

YAY!! The sun is out now, my kid is breathing better!!… and my mind capturing positive thoughts… whew.

each morning, each day presents opportunities for (compassion, spiritual) growth… and for living justice.

{What i mean by justice… is involved/deep and don’t have time to elaborate at the moment… not talking revenge nor my own personal sense of stuff… nor talking reciprocity.

Justly interacting/communicating with fellow-fragile-life in an agape/non-selfish manner that displays appropriate compassion at the appropriate time, etc.}

{We all do our best with the “accurate” knowledge aka “real” faith we possess at this current moment in time… and when we learn or understand deeper or more deeply aka acquire more accurate information… well, we make necessary changes and update to more healthy decisions…what I’ve come learn about God’s Justice as revealed in the Holy writings/scriptures is… God doesn’t expect from any of us what we are incapable of doing.}

THANKS for reading reader:)… my big-mouth ramblings… feeling better now (and hope you do too… aka better for this post and not worse off aka hoping by sharing this is helping in some small way).
