Sharing some musings by our dearest mom

“Where do we find peace?
Peace is in the rosy softness of a new dawn breaking.
It’s the sound of the wind across the mountain peak,
the quiet and mystical beauty of a snow-flake drifting silence downward to a land blanketed in white.
Peace is the elusive Kingdom of the Soul.”

Song of the birds for mirth.

You’re closer to God’s heart in a garden

Than any place on earth.”

“The many great gardens of the world, of literature and poetry, of painting and music, of religion and architecture, all make the point as clear as possible: The soul cannot thrive in the absence of a garden. If you don’t want paradise, you are not human; and if you are not human, you don’t have a soul.”

Hi
CAN’T KEEP UP…BUT THANKS FOR THE “THANX”
I’ve had many many hundreds of thousands (even “zillions”) of comments on my various other WordPress blogs at https://craigsblogs.wordpress.com/2011/09/09/craigs-list-of-blogs-updated-sept-2011/
in recent years …true!) …a few of my blogs  went “balistically viral” a few years back.
Obsessive or WHAT! Am really pleased you are enjoying my writings, as the reason I write is to share. However I am unable to keep up with the comments and was spending entire days just on replies on my various blog pages.
Though I’m rather “driven”, I still get really, really…
