How long has it been?!?
Finding time to blog between watching grandkids, knitting, crochet, housework, training the dog, cleaning up after the cats, cooking, laundry, etc., and crashing into bed at 10:00pm isn't easy. Perhaps I need vitamins or something to help me keep my energy up. I needed a nap at 5pm today! Didn't get it, though. Needed a little "relaxation" time and was sitting outside knitting, but then pup was digging in the dirt and pulling out soda bottle caps, sticks, stones, plastic toys buried long ago by a forgetful child... and broken glass. Who the heck lived in our apartment before us?? It's like an archeological dig back there! I think I'll get some sod and lay it down so that we have grass instead of dirt. And if I get a sandbox, then Rockie will have a place to dig and bury her toys.

I finished two crochet projects; am almost done with the second wrist warmer I've been knitting for myself (yeah, right. I'll end up giving it away. LOL) and I am SO excited to get started on a new project. It's a shawl by Fiber Trends that captures everything the Northwest has at the shore. Waves, fish, evergreens... can't think of it all right now. And I got gorgeous yarn - 50% wool and 50% silk from Corvallis, MT (didn't know there was a Corvallis, MT). It's hand painted and deep blues, greens and purples. I thought it represented the sea and a specific sea anemone I've seen in the rocks in Lincoln City, OR. It's going to take a bit, as I'm new to lace knitting, but I think it will be very rewarding.

That's it for now. It's 8:17 and I can barely keep my eyes open. I've got lots of organizing to do (purging more stuff and putting things in order) either later tonight or early tomorrow, then a cookout in the back yard with the kids (I hope!)

A safe and happy Memorial Day to you all.

"Divine Love always has met, and always will meet every human need." Mary Baker Eddy
During what have described as difficult financial times, I find the above statement becoming almost a mantra for me. Monetary supply has been demonstrated, through prayer, for over a year now. In one form or another, when there has been a need for money, it showed up in abundance - either an overdue payment that was owed to me from insurance payments, back child support, or my husband doing well at his sales job. No matter what the "human picture", Love provided the means to meet the bills, help purchase a second car, a computer and other things that will allow me to work from home in one form or another.
One reason this demonstration came about is because of a change in my thought. I went from seeing lack and no way to fill it, to seeing what I already had. Family, home, food, and clothing. "Are we grateful for the good already received?... Then we will be fitted to receive more." But what exactly are we grateful for? More money? More stuff? Or is more love, more joy, more peace, more assurance that God IS Love and through that Divine Principle we already have everything we need.
Other metaphysical thoughts are that what we ask the Universe for, we shall receive. Visualization, sending out positive thoughts, speaking with kindness, good intentions, doing good deeds, paying it forward - all that is still the same thing. It's expressing Love.
And you know what they say - "What goes around, comes around." I'd rather it be Love.
Have a Blessed day!
