The trees they speak to me.
As I sit here, I sense their call.
As they sit outside, standing so tall.
I love to hear the words, they share,
I feel in my heart that they do care
They warn me, of what I need to know
Understanding the importance, of being in the flow
The trees, they are my protectors.
On a windy day, as they show their strength, and joy,
Watching the mighty wind, shaking them as if they were a toy.
Sitting here, recalling when they saved my life,
To run like the wind, for there may be strife
I thank you dear, trees
For sharing the stillness
Sensing, the joy, peace from above
Being thankful of God’s Love.
The trees they speak to me, do they speak to you?

Today is Michaelmas. The feast of the Archangels, named for Archangel Michael, but also there other Archangels that are a part of this feast too. Mainly, Archangel Gabriel, Archangel Raphael, Archangel, and Archangel Uriel. This was a feast day has been celebrated in England and other European countries too. It is celebrated on this day, September 29, each year. The celebration is celebrated of the harvest, at this time of the year and also the Equinox, too.
Each year, the Archangels share a message with me to share with you . First they want to acknowledge to me, that I almost forgot about the feast. My husband actually showed me a post about today’s feast of Michaelmas, so I was reminded again. Thank you Jonathan and Angels….
I have a feeling this message will be from each of the angels, I spoke of earlier. It’s interesting because, I feel like they are lining up getting ready for their part of today’s message..
Greeting Dear Children,
We welcome you on this day of our feast day. Michaelmas.. You may be wondering why the feast of the angel’s day is named after just one of us.… We say this in jest, but as you know Archangel Michael is the leader of sorts and his name means “Like God”, and he is our Leader. Also he is the one who represents all aspects of the guidance we all offer to you. Today we are unison in this message, and our main message is to celebrate all that you are. Acknowledge the light shining from your heart and surrounding your entire being. But also know that your light, is going forth out into the world, where there may not be the light that you so freely share, and comes from you. We encourage you to share your messages of light, in all your diverse ways. In the areas of the human that covers, the whole of who you are. The triad of the importance of the balance of body, mind, and spirit. Humans are constantly in a process of constant growth, and understanding of these 3 areas. We commend you on this constant transformation. We remind you to think of where you have come from and where you are going. The journey of understanding this process, is and knowing this process, is a constant process. The focus and outcome is learning the true meaning of love, in all aspects of your life. And most important is how you are responding to the ups and downs of your human experience. We are here for you, but we ask you to be there for you, too. To keep your light bright and shining, in to know it is there when you may see it.
Today we share the message, our love for you and for you to know that love is all you need, and it is the fuel that keeps your heart to feel the joy, peace and grace, at all times. We love you and keep the heart fires burning dear children.
Just think of the warmth there in your heart, and soul. Its eternal, just like you and the love you share at all times.
“Keep the home fires burning, takes on a whole new understanding. Don’t you think?
The heart of the matter, Maybe?
Images on my mind
By Peg Jones, ALC
I have always wanted to be able to draw and paint. The colors and the scenes I have in mind are so vivid. I draw stick figures. I like to work in different mediums, like tissue paper or collage. When I have an idea in my mind of what I would like to paint or draw, I am able to verbally express what I see and I feel, which is a gift in itself.
I remember the years as a preschool teacher, of how I would compensate, for the lack of drawing skills. I had to trace everything or find models of what I needed at the time. Or ask someone to draw what I saw in my mind’s eye, but could not create, myself.
This poem I am about to share, with you, “If I Could Paint the Images on my mind, was inspired, when I was teaching Preschool. It was a very fun time, working with the class I had at the time. They were such a cohesive and group and full of spontaneity, through their work and play. They loved being together as a group. They seemed to enjoy being together, and helping each other out, or giving each other support when they were together in the classroom.
Our foundation of interactions with others starts as young children and the imprints of what our childhood was like do carry over to our adulthood in some way. We all have a story to tell and experiences that were lived. They help shape, to who we are today as adults. Our stories are all so diverse, in so many ways. We all have a foundation and personal understanding of our world. We are all God’s Children and we are truly loved. We are all one and we all want to be happy, creative, loved, and to share who we are. We all want to be loved and to be accepted… I feel it starts with ourselves, and that is self-love and feeling free to be our selves. Like little children.
Images on my mind
If I could paint the images that wander in my mind,
The picture would have such beauty the people, so kind.
My canvas would be large; my pale would be bright,
I would paint the love in my heart, for my fellow man tonight.
I would paint a pretty ocean scene, with children about.
The trees would be swaying, the sun would be out.
I would show their laughter, while playing in the sand,
Working hard on their castles, ask for nothing in demand.
Their spontaneity they possess, is something to behold,
The love they have in their hearts never gets too old,
Their words can be so wise at times, in such an innocent way,
The truth they speak is different every day.
If I could paint the images on my mind,
I would have rainbows on display.
They would possess the colors I love, in a bright array.
I would show you God’s light, shining from above.
I would paint a picture of peace and feeling God’s love.
If we could be like children, and able to forgive,
To know we are all one, where we live,
To know that we become the person we all want to be
To live our life, with love and peace, and truly be free
