Mill, Water flow and Gifts


I went to Graue Mill's Holiday Gift show and a few my friends were their selling their artistic wares. Purchased some beautiful cards and this little creatures too.  When I walked up to the Mill under the street (a cool path) there was this image that I said if I remember I will take a picture when I walk back.  Well there it is.... snowing and water flowing.  I do love the place that I live with the four seasons that change. 

Forgive on my window sill, 

A gift to myself...the mouse or mice have been an animal I've been dabbling with in my art for a while.  And mainly for personal behavior adjustment. But I won't got into that...Been waiting to purchase a few of these.  I picked this mouse for the features and not so much for the Word, which you would think that would be the main choice.  But since I've picked it out or shall I say it picked me...might be a good idea to look up a bit on Forgiveness.... 


Psychologists generally define forgiveness as a conscious, deliberate decision to release feelings of resentment or vengeance toward a person or group who has harmed you, regardless of whether they actually deserve your forgiveness.
Just as important as defining what forgiveness is, though, is understanding what forgiveness is not. Experts who study or teach forgiveness make clear that when you forgive, you do not gloss over or deny the seriousness of an offense against you. Forgiveness does not mean forgetting, nor does it mean condoning or excusing offenses. Though forgiveness can help repair a damaged relationship, it doesn’t obligate you to reconcile with the person who harmed you, or release them from legal accountability.
Instead, forgiveness brings the forgiver peace of mind and frees him or her from corrosive anger. While there is some debate over whether true forgiveness requires positive feelings toward the offender, experts agree that it at least involves letting go of deeply held negative feelings. In that way, it empowers you to recognize the pain you suffered without letting that pain define you, enabling you to heal and move on with your life.
While early research focused on forgiveness of others by individuals, new areas of research are starting to examine the benefits of group forgiveness and self-forgiveness.



Forgiveness is a thing that takes some digging deeper and really being turthful with yourself..and it can bring up old hurts...so crazy... as we want to forgive ourselves and other we choice not to forgive and walk in angry and hurt....back to the saying I found way back..

What pins your wings, is what's going to set you free.   


The next one I that I purchased was Grateful with the little feather coming from it's head.  I will probably move these little creature around as needed.  For right now her home is next to the landline and the mirror.   Morning bed head and in my night gown in the kitchen...hahaha. 


I also purchased a bowl..the size of it and the color called out.  I've recently read about a prayer pot, but I wanted to have this next to me while I do my morning pages when I'm doing my morning routine and thinking about people in my life that might need some extra prayers.  There's a bit of Tobacco on the bottom to invite the Great Spirit and a candle to keep us drawn to the light in our life and to say positive.

  2. Thanks Helen, I usually light a candle while I do them not I have two one for the prayer bowl and one dim spiritual light. When I finished today I blow out the candle in the prayer bowl and said Let it be.
