Needing more starlight

Sadly some of the first victims in our recent earthquake have been babies
I know that they are being held tightly in the arms of angels
Take a moment just before you retire tonight to go outside and look upward to the night sky and see the lovely new stars that have appeared
Their beautiful  light shines down on the parents and will give comfort

These images of mine might help to bring solace

The Bride

For the last few days, all I have seen and felt is sadness, due to the earthquake in Christchurch
Yesterday I felt the need to make a Bride, all my other worked stopped while I created her
She would be dressed in white and have a thin veil and be carrying flowers
After I had finished her, I was thinking about why the pressing need to make a Bride
I think it is about being surrounded and dressed  like an angel
I think it is about something new, something beginning ,a life starting differently
A Brides joy spreads out to others in the wedding party, it reaches perfect strangers who sometimes see a Bride in the street, or being photographed in the park, it makes them smile
It must be maybe this lovely white light that shines out.
It sure was something that  I had to do straight away.

Christchurch Earthquake

Yesterday there was  a large earthquake in Christchurch in the South Island of New Zealand
I live in the North Island and am safe and well
I have had my global friends contact me to see if I am safe
There has been loss of life and the rescue operation is still on going
What you may like to do is send your loving thoughts to the injured
By enfolding them with loving light 

Love and light  Marie.

Letting Go

When you no longer feel the love for something, you must let it go
When you no longer can be bothered with something, you must let it go
By holding on tight to something that you are no longer  interested in
Only creates disharmony in your life
You start resenting the person, the people, the group, the space etc
By holding on just in case you might miss out on something is silly
That something never may happen
Why waste your energy on an unhappy situation 
By letting go, you are inviting new things into your life
It is not easy to let things go, but you are stronger than you think
Change is never easy, but it can bring new direction and hope.

A Little pumpkin child

Five minutes ago I just completed this little pumpkin child
She was a delight to make
Now I must away and bring in and fold the washing, the front porch needs to be swept 
And I am making fish pie with salad from the garden for dinner, so I better get started on my chores

Pink Butterflies Flying

It is 7 0"clock at night and the day has been so very hot
I am sure I spotted some pink butterflies flying around in the simmering heat
I am sure they landed  ever so lightly on my hand
Then they flew off and surrounded this little maiden
How very happy she was to see them

The Grandmother

Six months ago I saw this cane rocking chair in a shop and purchased it
I often wondered what I was going to make with it
Well last week I decided it was going to be a Grandmother wearing a shawl and knitting
It is a large project, measuring 15 inches high, and took a lot of pure New Zealand wool
I do hope you like it, I think it is rather cool

By slowing down you can notice the beauty that surrounds you
If you are forever rushing from one thing to another, there is a tendency to become stressed or unhappy
Take time to enjoy the moment
It takes time to nurture dreams
Dreams can not bloom in infertile soil
By appreciating what you have, and increasing  your awareness
Your energy level will improve and seeds can start to grow
Have patience and enjoy the small things  

Love and light Marie
