The Work of Angels!

Several weeks ago my friend Joice invited me to have a journey with some angels. They were at her house for five days, then, five days later, came to visit me. That was only last Wednesday. Wow... have they been doing some work!

First of all, appropriately, I was at our timeshare last Tuesday through Friday, at ANGEL'S CAMP(!),  in a concentrated effort to work on our store's cookbook. I invited the angels in on Wednesday, and sure enough, by Friday I had my goal of 100 pages and 130 recipes typed and formatted! (Thank you, thank you!) Then, when I got home Friday afternoon, I see they've been working hard with my wonderful husband, putting in new (recycled) windows in my bedroom!

Wow... what a difference! I now have a wonderful writing alcove! This used to be the closet, and we took off the doors and kept my huge Armoire in there. Now, it's a lovely place, illuminated and full of light. My writing desk fits perfect. You can see my "Mother Mary" painting in the middle of the windows, but it's hard to make out the Bali woodcarving we found at a yard sale yesterday for just $15! There's lots of stuff still in piles, waiting for their new home/placement in my room.

Ok... here's a closeup, please don't notice the piles of stuff. But isn't the woodcarving perfect?

 So, here's where Bill moved the Armoire. It closes off a window, but it allows the most room, and for my bed to be centered on the door, a perfect view of the morning light in the Redwoods. I'm toying with the idea of putting in another window, right there where you see blank wall. Then again, it's a wall I could be hanging some art on!
 We hung wonderful sheers behind my bed, still lets in lots of light. Here's another blank piece of wall I could hang art on.
 Aarg... here are piles of items needing to come back into the room.... or do they? You can see, I still haven't finished my Sacred Madonna painting. When she's finished, she might look cool on that piece of empty wall, where I'm thinking window. What do you think?
So, these wonderful angels have been creating much magic! And I am so grateful. Ok, so I know the room looks like a gypsy lives here.... but I LOVE all the color!

Another wonderful awareness came this week. (Thank you again, Angels.) A friend called to talk about relationship issues and I shared a lot about why Bill and I get along so great, almost 20 years now. Here are three JEWELS:
1. Give up being right.
2. Stop trying to figure out the "why?" of anything.
3. Don't try to fix things. ("Fixing" things often keeps you embroiled in the problem. Focus on what you do want, give that the "fixing" energy!)
We've been pretty happy these last few years, and I'm thinking these simple items are at the crux of living peacefully and joyfully! It's working for us!

So, I'm grateful for the angels and all their miracles. I hope you'll invite them into your life and home!

Can't resist showing you this!  My "Baby" isn't a baby anymore!

  1. Hello, Chris...
    I LOVE the room! all that rich color and draping of the sheers! It has a welcoming, cozy, creative feel to it...very inviting. I'm sure the angels were honored! Thanks for sharing your process and pics - nice pooch and hubby :) Please give Bill and your grandaughter hello & smile from me.

    On another note, the stuff you removed from your room... I too did this about 6-8 weeks ago, got rid of a lot of stuff and in process of re-designing/decorating. It felt so good to let go of old stuff that was cluttering up the space. It feels good to see the floor, and corners in the room! So, for you w/putting stuff back in the house: If it uplifts you, opens your heart, makes you smile, etc. keep it; if it doesn't, hmm.. what will you do w/it? If it's sentimental, you can take a photo of the item and incorporate it into some kind of artwork. You and Bill are infinitely creative, I know you'll create something amazing!

    Seeing your photos reminds me of the bless-ed time I spent with you and your family. Those memories live on in my heart. I love you dear-heart. Thank you for everything. Harmony to you, Cheryl
