Monday Offering...Timing

timing can be everything
today I offer a story of such Divine Timing
and a song that swirls in my mind
and seems to be a touch stone
in this place of in between
I came home to an expected package

In it tokens of giving, words and a ring...

a simple beauty
hand crafted by this lovely lady
I love the ring
I love the tea...vanilla happens to be my favourite everything!
The post card photo is stunning
But it was the words
the words that the sweet Jillian wrote
the timing of those words were perfect...

...I hope all is well in your world
and pray this ring always helps to lead you our
and lead you home again....
All love & Big thanks,

finding my way back home...
thank you for your words
their timing

I look around but I can´t find you
(raise it up)
If only I could see your face
(raise it up)
Instead of rushing towards the skyline
(raise it up)
I wish that I could just be brave

I must become a lion hearted girl
Ready for a fight
Before I make the final sacrifice

We raise it up this offering
We raise it up

This is a gift it comes with a price
Who is the lamb and who is the knife
When Midas is king and he holds me so tight
And turns me to gold in the sunlight

Raise it up raise it up

And in the spring I shed my skin
And it blows away with the changing wind
The waters turn from blue to red
As towards the sky I offer it

This is a gift it comes with a price
Who is the lamb and who is the knife
Midas is king and he holds me so tight
And turns me to gold in the sunlight

In the days to come I will be sharing with you all, my journey down to Medellin.
Humble gratitude and thanks to you all for holding me in your thoughts and prayers while I was away.

Love and Light

  3. I love Florence, I am haunted by her songs daily.

    "lead you out and lead you home again" - may it be so, for me as well.
    Rest up and don't rush the words, we're all here and can wait as long as you need. For, this is a sacred time and don't take anything away by speaking before you are ready.
