Good day one and all ; this weekend was spent exploring the countryside ;just the tonic and inspiration I needed after the past couple of weeks which have been hectic to say the least.

Gather round and help yourselves to tea or coffee ; there are biscuits and cake on the table behind us.

Today is about learning to embrace ; embrace whatever makes you feel good ;whatever makes that heart lift and sing once again!!

As so many of you know I embrace Mother Nature's kingdom and all the warmth within .

The very first photos were taken yesterday as we went to visit my daughter Sue and her family.

The others from past explorations.

Enjoy !!!

Bracken scented daydreams

forever overflowing;

a heartful of love

treasured and daring;

yesteryear's magical sunshine filled days.

A heart so adventurous

calling so wildly

dance to the music

passionate to touch.

Footsteps dancing around

each snow capped hillside;

the winds of trepidation

follow at a glance;

curling in a sweet beauty

that halos around

each

snowy hilltop.

It's brightly lit crown

cascading in treasures

of the heart.

Treasures to the heart are the sounds from the heavens;

birds a-twittering

playful their calling

Sailing in the sweet scents of heartwarming blossoms.

Each deeply etched thorns

will never again leave their cruel

and painful wounds.

Each morning

noon

eve

and

night

for us to embrace !!

Each minuet of singing bird

brings joy to life

to each stagnant heart.

Drink your fill

of nature's

beauty

love

and

faith

Give yourself the power

the gift

to embrace your heart and soul .

Lifts each being much higher than the heavens.

Vivacious beauty will surround you

as you learn to

EMBRACE !!

Embrace

Each fresh moment

New joys in abundance

Cascading in abandonment

Sailing on those clear winds from yesteryear

Green meadows a sweet illusion

Moss lined lanes to follow

The deepest joy

Embrace.

Acrostic: Embrace.

Embrace

Moments of wonder etched in eternal bliss

Beautiful sweet momentum

Rising in luxurious promises of true love

A never ending version of life's sweet love song.

Centred on dreams and wishes tenderly thriving and flowing with ease

Embrace your world;your joys and your eternal visions of hope,joy and faith.

Rhyme : Embrace.

To embrace each day

Fully live your life

Just work your way through

Each trouble and strife.

x

To embrace each joy

Catch laughter on the breeze;

Dance to your love song

Like leaves in the trees.

x

To embrace each friend

Each one in your heart;

The distance means nowt

We shall never part.

x

To embrace your life

Surviving battles;

Expect and accept

Emotions settle.

x

Embracing a gift

Yes ours for free;

A heartful of bliss

Yours eternally .

      god it's such a refuge when i take time out and 'come sit by you a while'..

      it's spirit lifting and soul nourishing - today taking a leisurely stroll through a wild, stunning, and very distant land - which i would probably never have the pleasure of seeing without the benefit of your lens and your words, sweet friend!

      Both are gorgeous!

      up and onward...

I really need to find a way to travel abroad so I can see all the beauty and meet you in person. Thank you for a wonderful experience. You brought a smile to my face this morning.

      Stumbling upon your post just now is somewhat of an omen for me. I had been "down" a bit because my desk top was damaged after being struck by lighting, and I have been left with just my lap top only for the last two weeks. On Saturday, my lap top totally crashed and it took me several hours to correct the problem, Well, on Sunday, yesterday, it crashed again. I had been trying all day to fix the problem. I had just finished my meditation and gratitude time...I thanked God that I could now use my computer as I have blogs to post and marketing to do for my home business. When I made one last attempt to correct the problem, my computer started up right away and I immediately logged onto HP to post a new hub. When I clicked to enter my account, the first thing I saw was this hubsite. Coincidence? I think not. Your message was just what I needed to validate my faith in my practice of daily gratitude for the simple things in life to change my circumstances and bring me more good things to be grateful and happy for. I love your concept and message. Your photos are terrific and calming . Hope you share more with us. I'm a follower!
