My Frame of Mind

I was a bit hasty to post this photo yesterday. I have been mulling over many things, over the past months. As we all know aggression and atrocities have increased against human beings, babies in the womb, animals as well. People are impatient and have no problem making their viewpoint known. Anger and self control have exited out the door perhaps never to return. Loss of life in different manners. My heart sinks at times for the icky stuff happening. My thoughts have been to address the importance of mental health, mental well being. What am I doing, what are each of us doing to contribute to having and maintaining a healthy mindset? What can we do different to maintain peace of mind, so that the darkness doesn’t overtake us and consume us? We all have trials and battles, those battles of the mind that try to persist. How can we help those that are struggling. What we meditate on daily effects our thinking. Is it good, positive, encouraging? So this I share today. Not sure what to do with this idea, but for now, this is what is on my heart.

Be careful, then, how you live-not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Ephesians 5: 15-16
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:2
My son, be attentive to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Let them not escape from your sight; keep them within your heart. For they are life to those who find them, and healing to all their flesh. Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life. Proverbs 20-23

Desperate Measures

I have had a great time setting up props for experimental photo shoots. I have to laugh at myself for the following. The title of this posts reveals the extent I went to for the look. I am not a painter but I have a desire and I have some of the necessary tools. You can laugh with me, if you’d like…

Winter looms and for some it is no laughing matter. My heart goes out to all that are not seeing light on the horizon.. This time can test ones patience and as I have been experiencing a mental low and slight struggle, I realize that I am the one that has to take the steps to do those things that make my heart merry.. Letting my inner creativity come out to play makes my heart merry. Reading a good wholesome book makes my heart merry. Taking time to pray and mediate makes my heart merry. Letting go of what I have no control over will make my heart merrier… The four seasons will either bring out the best in us or the worst. That is life as each of us go through our own personal seasons. No one else can do it for us.. If we faint not we will reap so much. And as the spring flowers bloom, we will be right there amongst them, blooming and looking pretty good.
