Happy Anniversary my sweet home! 13 years ago today, I signed the papers and was given the key to you – my first new home! And so to my home I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation for: keeping me cool in the summer (your welcome for the new HVAC) and keeping me warm in the winter, dry when it rains or snows! For giving me a lovely place where I have experienced life and all its wonderful twists and turns, more joy than sorrow for 13 years and soon you will be paid off!! LOL Oh how time flies when you are having fun! In 2017 I have big plans for you home sweet home… update your look inside and out. But for today, just know how grateful and blessed I feel to have you…a home of my own!

Lord, so often times, as any other day
When we sit down to our meal and pray
We hurry along and make fast the blessing
Thanks, amen. Now please pass the dressing
We’re slaves to the olfactory overload
We must rush our prayer before the food gets cold
But Lord, I’d like to take a few minute more
To really give thanks to what I’m thankful for
For my family, my health, a nice soft bed
My friends, my freedom, a roof over my head
I’m thankful right now to be surrounded by those
Whose lives touch me more than they’ll ever possibly know
Thankful Lord, that You’ve blessed me beyond measure
Thankful that in my heart lives life’s greatest treasure
That You, dear Jesus, reside in that place
And I’m ever so grateful for Your unending grace
So please, heavenly Father, bless this food You’ve provided
And bless each and every person invited
- Scott Wesemann
Wishing everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving Day!
Mercury in retrograde from February 23 thru March 17. During this time we can experience energy slowing down, miscommunication, electronics acting kooky and delays in travel among other things.
Mercury (Roman) or Hermes (Greek) messenger of the Gods. He has a winged hat and winged shoes which indicate or symbolize quick travel. He influences: Intelligence, Education and Truth. Travel, literature, poetry, merchants and thieves. And he can be quite a trickster and bad boy at the drop of a hat.
Did you know too that in 1782 he was the U.S. Postal Service’s first symbol and of course today we see him as a symbol for flower delivery?
Astrologically Mercury in retrograde indicates it is time to reflect, redo, revaluate. He can affect each of us differently too based on our astrological signs.
The good things about Mercury in retrograde and this is where our focus should be in order to get through smoothly during this time:
Old friends you haven’t seen in a long time resurface as you either run into them or they call you out of the blue. Interestingly, many of those who are adopted and searching for their birth parents find them during Mercury in retrograde – same for those who searching for lost siblings. Lost mail reappears and salespeople can benefit by going back over their previous sales and reconnecting with those clients for new sales rather than forging new clients. Also, those who are in therapy often have big breakthroughs during Mercury retrograde.
On that note, here are some ideas to help be calm and in the flow of life during Mercury Retrograde:
1.) Be open and flexible to life and be detached from things. Mercury is an intellectual planet and not emotional so if your friend or sweetie flies off the handle and says something mean take a moment and breathe. Don’t react too harshly – at first. Simply reevaluate what is going on and where this is coming from
2.) Slow down and make time for you and yourSelf – be creative, relax; write, journal, draw, garden, dance!
3.) Allow, Allow, Allow do not resist anything.
4.) Meditate, sit quietly alone in the silence and breathe.
5.) This is a good time to brainstorm, visualize, plan – or go over past plans and dreams and see where you can readjust to make them happen.
6.) Be Attentive while traveling, walking, driving to your surroundings and safety
7.) BE VERY CLEAR to those around you to be sure there is clear understanding between you and others when communicating. This goes for conversations, orders, emails, phone calls etc. Be sure others understand what you are saying and you understand what they are saying.
8.) Finish up projects you have had to put on the back burner so to speak
9.) Reflect on your life and where you are and listen to your heart and soul not your mind for direction or new direction
10.) This is a fun time to get of your mind and delve into non-rational experiences such as; going to a psychic fair, get a reading from a medium or psychic.
And lastly, I use this affirmation to keep me safe and all good at all times: I intend that I am guided, guarded, protected and in line with my highest good at all times. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
