You deserve better

    Perfect words that my soul needed to hear today. Thank you! Love, Amy

      Yay!! I love it when that happens, when something that touches my heart also touches another. Thanks for commenting dear AmyRose. Love & Hugs, Gina

        Bless you, Gina. I have been living my Life like this for a long time, yet, lately, I have been questioning if I was wrong. I believe in what you focus on, so your life shall follow. That is in fact something I just posted. But, when it rains it pours, and it is pouring lately, “tempting” me to put my focus in another direction. Honestly, these words really touched HOME with me. (((HUGS))) Amy

          I am utterly delighted to read this Amy, and it validates my own ‘hunches’ to post what I feel really pulled to share. Haven’t been blogging much lately and your comment really helps me remember all that I love about sharing – that we have the chance to touch hearts and encourage each other through this sharing place of WP. Hugs back! xoxo

            Thank YOU, Gina. Why? It’s been tough for me to keep blogging, and many days I have pulled way back. Life has gotten really tough for me, very challenging, and to both keep up with my posts, do the blogging, AND to keep my Heart in the right space …. not easy of late. I am SO glad to see you again. I have a “hunch” that it has been a tough summer for many people. It really is important to stay connected to those of like mind here at WP. I don’t know about you, but in “real life” I don’t have the connections like I do here. The LOVE and the kindness and the heartfelt understanding is amazing. I give you (((HUGS))) and encourage you to do your best with all you do. Love, Amy

              Wow, Amy!! Our connections have helped strengthen me today. Thank you! Your words mirror my own experience, and the difficulty I’ve been having with blogging. Around the time Maya Angelou passed away I have felt like words have fled me. I discovered Tumblr and have created my ‘dream farm’ and want to go there every day. But when it comes to sharing my spiritual insights and places within where I am growing, words fail me. So I tend my burgeoning gardens with delight, then roam around on my dream farm in Tumblr, and then try to write something meaningful but… well, words seem to have fled me. Except when sharing with you! I’m deeply grateful to you and our visits today. Bless you! Love, G

                Oh, Gina, Sweetheart, the words will come back again, I promise you. As I see it, you are in a growth period, and a relaxing period to be renewed by Mother. When the words come back, and they will, they will be so much stronger, because of your own Life Experiences. Please take my word for it, that this summer has been exceptionally difficult, and if it were not my sense to be here to stay connected, but not only that, but to be filled by others, just like now … I wouldn’t be here. To know I have touched someone and helped them, in turn, helps me and lifts me tremendously. I am so happy we spoke today, we connected today, we shared today. My writing as well has declined. I am referring to the long posts I used to write that now when I read them, blow me away. It has just been these little sayings, and of course my photography, that has kept me on course. WP has kept me together when so much of my life seems to be falling apart. Yet, and this I say with great reverence, I feel a lightning, if you will, something in the energy itself that is releasing. I feel a gentleness again, something I have not in a long long time, and I feel off and on, my Bliss states, that again, have been sorely missing. So, things are improving. That is my thought and that is what I will stick with. I have every faith in you that one day I will see you in my reader, and YOUR WORDS will blow me away. For real. Until that time comes, as a dear friend used to say to me, chop wood and carry water. I also have a post, OH WOW, that is SO lined up with what we are talking about. HOLY MOLY! The “voice” is never off on its timing, and this post you will get right away. That should be up on Tuesday. I will dedicate it to you. Gina, you have NO idea how nice this has been, to speak with you, to be able to share with you. Thank you from the bottom of my Heart. I needed this as much as you. Love, and (((HUGS))) Amy

                  Thank you – so much – Amy. Bless your heart for all the kindness and light you share in the world. You are truly, deeply appreciated. Big hugs filled with so much love and friendship, Gina xo

                    Gina, I really HOPE you saw the post I dedicated to you today. I have comments closed due to going on a shoot and I haven’t really paid attention to the likes. I will be heading out the door again soon with a cat that is not well. So yep, this day has been busy. Again, I really HOPE you saw my post “Perfect Time”. (((HUGS))) Amy

                      Oh my sweet friend, your gift is incredible! πŸ™‚ That poem and your photograph are rather mind-blowing for me (in the best way!) because a phrase I frequently use about my own growth at this point in my life is “Blossoming”. My closest friends and hubby actually have begun calling me, as I also call myself, Blossoming Gina. So you can see how much that is reflected in your amazing post today. Much loving gratitude to you my friend. And big happy (and somewhat tearful) hugs!! XOXO Gina (PS – My heart goes out to you in this challenging time for your cat’s health. May all be well and fully recovered. Blessings)

                      Whispers is OK. Blood work came back normal. He has an infection/inflammation going on somewhere, though, so he is on antibiotics. I don’t know what else to do, as so the vet. Thank you for your concern and thank you, Gina, for your gratitude. It has been received and cherished. Love, Amy

                    • 

                      Whew. So glad ‘Whispers’ is on the road to recovery. Our pets mean so much. And what a great name! Thanks again dear heart, and happy hugs to you. Love and light, Gina

    I like the quotation about rooms in the house. I will remember that next time I feel a bout of anxiety coming on!

    Hi Miss Gina! A most beautiful post to start off the week. Hope this finds you doing just great. I promise to come around more often! You are always so clever and inspirational! May God shower your path with flowers as you greet your day! Love always, your friend Cissy in Tejas!

      Hello Cissy!! Thank you so much for your kind wishes, and may your week be blossoming with God’s love and flowers as well. πŸ™‚ I’m so glad you enjoyed this post. Blessings, Gina

    I love the quote by Hafiz. Don’t we all deserve a large, bright and airy room by the sea where we can hear the waves crash on the shore and at night, see the lighthouse, a beacon in the dark?

      Oh YES! To let go of fear is to claim the bright and beautifully furnished room filled with love that’s just waiting for us! A lighthouse – I love that. Thanks so much for this great comment Jeanne. Big hugs! Gina xo

        I am just now reading “Miracles Now” by Gabrielle Bernstein. One of her miracle messages – “I am not the victim. I am the lighthouse.”
        My, how things can dovetail. πŸ™‚
        Hugs to you, too.
