Nature’s Melody

I was out in the gazebo the other morning when my youngest live-in granddaughter joined me. Here’s a synopsis of the conversation … but first, you need to know a little background and my daily routine.

First, whenever I’m checking mail or Facebook or working, often I have the television on tuned to instrumentals as background music. That’s an important point to remember.

Second, my morning routine is to brew a cup of coffee, check my vitals (blood pressure and glucose), get breakfast (usually toast or cereal) and take the coffee and breakfast to the gazebo. I pull out my Interpreter’s Bible and delve into some Scripture, read Karen her morning cartoon, and dig into breakfast.

The other day, I was dutifully trying to follow Ezekial when Karly bounced into the gazebo.

“That’s a big bible,” she said, swinging her feet on the wicker love seat.

I looked up, smiled, and explained it wasn’t really a bible. It was more of a detailed explanation of bible passages.

“Oh,” she answered, seemingly satisfied. So I went back to the text.

“That’s what we do in Good News Club.”

It was obvious it was time for real-time Christianity, so I closed the book and turned my attention to the little one.

And the questions began. Why are there two urns {we purchased two urns interlocked in circles}? How come your name is on one of them {because that will be my home after I die}? Look at the squirrel {I told her about my experience with the squirrel, robin and bee}! That’s creepy {Oookaaayyy}! Why do you come out here every morning {to sit with Grandma and enjoy the outdoors}?  It’s nice out here {yes it is}. It’s quiet out here {usually}. What time is it {time to go out front for the bus}?

And as she adjusts her bookbag and gets set to leave, she states nonchalantly, “The sounds outside make good background music.”

“Yes, they do. You have a good day at school, because you started me off on a good day.”

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: When everyone around you seems to be in bad spirits, bickering and complaining, take a step back. It’s so easy to answer in kind, but instead feel into your heart and answer gently. Let peace radiate from you.

    First of all I would like to say superb blog!

    I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.

    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
    I’ve had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting
    my thoughts out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just
    trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Thank you!

    Slowly but steadily, internet dating has infiltrateed the
    lives of thousands and thousands of people. Each site alows you to choose a main pixture for your profile, and then several
    others that people see when they click on the
    main photo, or go deeper into your profile.

    Do you think you need a lot of money to geet started?
    I recall my experience when that happened to me.
    If its anything people enjoy its having a good time.

    So, as you begin getting into online dating, there are a few underlying
    concepts of existentialism that wwe would do well to keep in mind.
    By using this function, you can look for people bsed
    on education, location, weight, height, ethnic origin, hair colour, eye colour, interests and hobbies.
    You can chat to them without giving out your address or phone number, which is obviously a
    requirement in offline relationships. The problem is that his
    disappearance may bring out all your relationship fears of being hurt or your
    female tendency to feel abandoned. A blurry picture or one where there are multiple people in it is not attractive.

    However, do you know that most meen who are not successful with dating sites aree those who do not upload their photo?
    These websites are so simple to use,that people cann quickly register a profile and start
    reaping the benefits.

    Then you can geet through dating tto a successful relationship.

    Thiis tool empowers you to attract women browsing the website to find their potential dates.
    Whaever your preferences are there are many date specific
    websites just for you. Take your time. Datingg
    no longer has to be a tiresome or underwhelming endeavor
    with the right connections. Does this not suggest that
    only the “opposite sex” would be interested?
    At $50 a month, why rush things?

    With time, you’ll thank your luciy stars that you found me!
    I don’t listen too that little voice. All a girl neers is
    love, labels, and a guy with a great sense off humor.
    The book covers how and why Viivienne got into the dating business, the problems she encountered wen staring the business,marketing
    and advertising solutions, tips on starting your owwn online dating business, what you
    should consider prior too starting an online business, why people join online
    dating sites, and other challenging, humorous, and not sso funny anecdotes.

    Lett them see you out, let them see you with friends, let them see you looking great.
    The idea iss to provide some usefull information on dating
    secrets as well as provide advertisiing too anyone looking att the webpage and generate income if
    someoe sees advertising that answers a question.

    Speed dating is an outstanding alternative iin these fast times of the new millennium.
    Are you a People Person? They affirm that all is good in their social lives as they can continue to correspond
    with like-minded individuals, exchange thoughts and emotions, and create a bond.

    This now leaves me with my lasat bit of advice for you younger
    studs, life is forever throwing us curve ballls which
    I believe is designed in building character. I don’t know much about her, but I sure wish I knew who Rosiue Vela is dating, because that is
    one lucky guy. I wasn’t hurt, angry or jealous att all.
    This feature also allows you to ssee what someone looks like before you
    meet him oor her.

    There might be other items of interest and as men mature they
    tend to consider other focuses. There are millions of singles who registered with them.
    The latest trend iss online dating. It is a place for veggies to
    meet. If you like it you can stay, if you do not- do not
    have tto waist your time. She gets upset ith himm and calls
    annd texts constantly to try and get it sorted. So, just think, evening dates foor early dates.
    Traditional means for finding thhe right partber was
    quite time consuming also.

    This iis pure online dating funk I tell myself.
    Go simple and easy for your first sseveral dates.
    Havijg sex too soon has the potential to throw a wrench inn
    the fly wheel off your heart andd uultimately destroy the new relationship.
    Only give your phone number to someone you are really interested
    or seriouss about dating. Dutch girls like sweet talk from Dutch men:
    it iis very important that you uuse nice and sweet words every time you talk tto her.
    If you want someone to like you for who you are and not what your money
    can do than it doesn’t matter what kind of car you drive or shoes you hve on.

    In time, you wioll be cerain to make friends online with
    some fantastic people ffom all over the world.
    But just because things clicked on your first date does not mean yoou
    can relax and take her for granted. We are living in a fast
    paced world, so looking for date and romance, relationship and
    marriage on the Internet seems to be the best option. And tthe
    most important thing to renember when writing that killer profile of yours is too remain true annd honest with yourself and about yourself.Know who is running the show and where the money is going.
    Looking for some sesy and stable. After all, every individual will have a different set of expectatiins when it comes to dating online.

    It just goes to show you never know what will happen when you are suefing the Internet.
    However, if you can afford too pay a small monthly fee, then use paid sites.
    The Internet is a quick way to get a profile of a person without
    actually having aan initial “human engagement” for lack
    of a better term. with these totally free personals dating sies they are focusing on allpwing mmbers
    to hve less pressure on meeting someone. Don’t lie aabout anything.
    To make that good impression, use chat room and your online profile instead.
    Since you have limited space and resources to showcase yourself, and alzo the
    kind of person yyou would like to meet, your
    dating profile should mee some basic requirements and stand out as a good
    dating pdofile example.

    If you live with someone, give that paper to them before you go out socializing.You could also mention you are
    going on a date as part of a conversation with a mail person,a neighbor or someone youu
    ssee or talk to everyday.Knowing thee anhswers to tthe question will help you speed your way
    through the profile and into youir search ffor the perfect date.
    In other words, if a woman requjests or recommends additional dates, the woman iss geerally expected to offer tto pay for
    the meals and entertainment involved. Before we even take this into consideration,I
    would like to mention a very important suggestion. Plan an easy short first date.
    Just be genuine and be who you are, and if
    yyou know how to ull itt off, you will surely see the ever-increasing winks and views.
    Don’t make up stories about your life.

    Withh online dating, you are not undeer any pressure to divulge information about yourself to an online date when you don’t want to.
