  1. Perfect words and beautiful music Amy, lets us never miss the beauty that surrounds us no matter what is going on in the world. Love and peace to you Amy. 🙂 The flowers are gorgeous.

    1. Thank you, Sandra. I’m really focused right now in taking back my connection and joy which has been severely hampered by what is going on in the world. To be surrounded yes even in the parks by fear is wearing me down. I have faith in myself that as I walk with determination to find that connection and keep it, that is exactly what shall be. My flowers truth be told I’m running out of ….. this is the time of year when my gardens lack much color. Have to put my thinking cap on to figure out where to go next. I will. Have a great day today! xo

      1. I dont have many flowers my self, but there are so many wild flowers right now. New ones I have never seen before. Stay strong Amy, I only listen to the Father, that is where I find my strength. 😌❤

    1. I’ve been stumbling about lately, Mark, and truthfully if I don’t fight to take back what is rightfully mine, I may loose my special connection. Let’s just say I’m in a very dry spell right now. I still have the ability to capture beauty, thank goodness, but I’m working on “feeling” that beauty as I once did. There are times it’s as though I am being pulled into a river of muck. Forest here I come!!! (((HUGS)))!! xo

  2. Amy, such soothing music and your photos are exquisite, almost like a meditation in itself. Where I walk, here in winter, there are very few flowers about so seeing yours is like a beautiful gift. Thank you for sharing. ❤️🌹 xxxx

    1. You are so very welcome, Miriam. I’m running out of flowers right now in my gardens so I put my thinking cap on, listen to my heart, and follow my feet on where to go next. I do know I am going to my fav forest today. If I do anything it will to soak up the sanctuary’s solace to heal my heavy heart. Much love to you, dear friend. I can in no way imagine what you must be going through. We’ve somehow got to put an end to this insanity. BIG (((HUGS)))!!! xo

    1. Ah, yes through the madness still beauty reigns. When we can block out that madness that beauty in of itself will bring us salvation. Much love to you, Rob. (((HUGS)))!! xo

  4. All so beautiful Amy! I’m especially fond of the roses and the flowers with the bee’s. There’s just something about those that speak to me. I feel moved by how you capture the character of the petals and the intricate artistry of nature. Blessings to you! Thank you for sharing your gifts.

    1. So many bees have been on my lavender this year that it brought great excitement and joy to my heart when I saw them. YES! I have become very aware of not only what I am capturing but what is around it and behind it as well in order for the complete picture to be in harmony. I really enjoyed your comment. It meant a lot to me. Blessing to you in return! Much love!! xo

        And I know your photography is boundless.
        I’m glad you opened up your comments section btw.

      2. Aw, Jude. Bless you. I had some very rough patches in my personal life directly related to what has been going on, and lately things are just brighter and brighter for me. Now I have the energy to talk through my fingers …. something I like to do. (smile) I am so touched by your constant support and how you express yourself in the comments you leave. Thank you so much!! xo

    1. Thank you, Donna! My Connection is getting there …. I’m happy to say. I’m disconnecting from the world on a deeper level putting my whole trust in Divinity, my family, and yes this great nation I live in. May you and your loved ones have a great weekend!! Much love to you!! xo

    1. I’m getting there, Brad. It does take work and it is called being consistent and determined to be disconnected from the madness of this world so that I stay connected to Mother. I’m again in the flow and darn it I will do all I can to stay there. And you are so very welcome for the share. I have more flowers to share plus waiting on some of my flowers to again show. I found this music very soul stirring and that is why I posted it along with this post. Much love to you and hugs right back at you!! xo

    1. Gee whiz! You’ve got me grinning, Resa! What a compliment. You’ve gone and swelled up my head. LOL Thank you and I mean it thank you! All those years of shooting are sweetly coming together lately. I do see the difference too. That and I am working with a more expensive camera body. BIG difference!! Hubby too says my pics are good enough for National Geographic. Giggling!! Hope you are having a great weekend!! Love and HUGS!! xo

  6. Beautiful soothing music Amy, Thankyou❤️

    You asked and you received dear Amy and shared mother’s glorious flowers with us that are always found somewhere❤️

    Bee-ing present, going about our beautiful day is how we can each stay anchored in our natural essence of joy, love and peace and keep sane during these awful days as everyone is fighting for themselves… no matter what it takes!

    I too have felt the anguish out there and it’s going to continue for a few months, so we must keep out of the non-sense, it can all play out without us. We will each be guided to our next step and you dear Amy are bringing us mothers creations that we must not lose sight of. Thankyou🥰

    1. God bless you for this comment, Barbara, and for being awake. Oh yes this anguish and these awful days will be over in a few months yet the destruction that has been wrought, the hatred that has sprung up between people, the extreme left and right, the political “mainstream” atmosphere that is death of itself, and the overall rapid fear from so so many, I’m not sure anyone of us will ever fully recover from. We have been subjected to war and no one and I mean no one, walks away untouched. Just the affects of what the shutdown did to all of us, will remain with us for the rest of our lives. We can either allow those nightmares to destroy us or we can turn around and bring those experiences under the umbrellas of strength and of love. You know what I am choosing to do.
      I AM staying disconnected from this world to the best of my ability. I’ve had to be extremely aware on WP because even here the vileness has crept in. Fear and anger and hatred are contagious and I will again NOT allow those energies to contaminate me or my life!
      I require Mother Nature to continue to nurture me, dear friend. I like the way you said “bee-ing” present. Exactly!!
      Much love and peace to you!! xo

  8. Oh Amy, I am in awe of the beauty you’ve shared: through song, prayer and photos. Wow. Simply amazing.

    One of my favorite things to do is cozy up with my favorite blank in a comfortable spot, playing soaking/meditative music, and just simply BE. In our hectic, madness-filled world, it’s easy to forget the beauty of stillness. I remember the Scripture from Psalm 46;10: “Be still, and know that I AM God.” It’s a powerful reminder that we aren’t alone, we’re not helpless and the sun will shine again. We need only be still in our hearts, treasuring the beauty we still have in our lives.

    The colors you’ve shared here from nature take my breath away. When we appreciate the natural beauty around us, we begin to understand what really matters. The simple moments, the simple pleasures, and the wonder of Creation. Incredible! 💛 Thank you for this beautiful reminder, and for sharing your heart with us, Amy. God bless you, my friend! I value you.

    1. Holly, you and one other commenter are answers to my prayers today. I really was questioning if I was actually making a difference with my posts and if not, I was willing to walk away from here. It’s been so difficult at times to keep posting about hope, love, beauty, and inspiration in a time when darkness would if allowed destroy all of us. Oh yes I understand the power in stillness. When I get to that stillness that is when I feel God through Mother and my heart rejoices as my feet walk on Holy Ground. God bless you for this comment and for encouraging me to keep on fighting the good fight. Much much love to you, dear friend!!! I value you as well, believe me! (((HUGS))) xo

      1. Dearest Amy, what a precious reply from you! 🤗 My heart feels glad that I and another commenter were able to encourage you today. Prayer is powerful and God knows exactly what we need when we ask. It’s really beautiful when we pause to ponder that thought.

        I adore your posts, Amy. Your ability to spread love, joy, hope, and inspiration to live a better, more ‘aware’ life, is a blessing to us all. I get exactly where you’re coming from. I can’t tell you how many times, even in very recent days, that I too have considered throwing in the towel on blogging. My best suggestion? Allow yourself to take some time off, away from blogging. Sometimes the refresher sparks our creative fire like nothing else can. We will be here when you return with the inspiration only you can share. 🌹

        Many heartfelt hugs and endless love right back to you, Amy. You are so very special, and all of your efforts, love, time, and care for each post do not go unnoticed!

    1. My connection, no, Sue, has never been lost. However, I did loose the joy and the awe and the bliss. But!!! In pulling back and back and getting into a regular exercise program which is so important to me and doing it in my backyard, has brought me smack dab into the NOW. It feels SO SO good!! Much love and many blessings to you!! (((HUGS)))!! xo
