BLUE MONDAY


BLUE MONDAY








North Carolina Blues!






I was blue that the deer was so danged fast!

 Maybe vehicles are--but not a bit o blue in the back ground!

 BIL & SISTER in Blue Jeans--Look how far down this small creek was.


 North Carolina blue sky--slightly different than SC!

 
 

 

 The dome of Stone Mountain State Park in NC-- not Georgia.


My Sister!


 Telling her Dog, TYSON, that she's OK!

BLUE WOUND,
I SAW YOU BLEEDING ALONE,
PUMPING OUT BLOOD FROM MY HEART.....




I LAUGHED, AND CRIED TILL I WAS BLUE IN THE FACE (AND NOTICE HER LOVELY LACE,) AFTER I MADE SURE SHE WAS OK, AFTER TAKING A FACE AND KNEE PLANT IN THE RAPIDS!!!!





TODAY I CHOOSE TO BE HAPPY IN SPITE OF ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, OR NEGATIVE THOUGHTS THAT MAY BE WEIGHING ON MY MIND.

NOW I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT WISHING REAL WORLD PROBLEMS THAT NEED TO BE DEALT WITH AWAY, OR NAME IT CLAIM IT RELIGION:

I'M TALKING ABOUT THE "ATTITUDE",  I APPROACH  PERCEIVED PROBLEMS WITH.

SOME DESERVE CONCERN AND CONCENTRATION-
OTHERS- NOT SO MUCH.


TAKE A SECOND TO SEE IF WHAT IS WEIGHING SO HEAVILY ON YOUR MIND 
ACTUALLY
CARRIES THAT MUCH WEIGHT!


LEFT TURN - WHAT WAS THAT?


 FULL STOP!       OMG!,   DID YOU HEAR THAT????



WOW- "IT WASN'T AS BIG A DEAL AS I THOUGH IT WAS".




IMAGINE LIVING YOUR LIFE AS A DEER- JUMPING AT EVERY LITTLE SOUND,
BARELY ABLE TO DRINK WATER WITHOUT LOOKING UP.....

BUT..

THEY ARE STILL ALIVE!

"TAKE EVERY THOUGHT CAPTIVE", TO PARAPHRASE THE BIBLE: AND HOLD IT UNTIL YOU DECIDE IF IT SHOULD BE AMONG YOUR THOUGHTS OR NOT--




WHEN DOES A THOUGHT TRULY BECOME YOURS?

ONLY WHEN YOU KEEP IT.

MAKE SURE YOU ARE KEEPING ONLY REAL THOUGHTS THAT YOU NEED TO DEAL WITH, AND NOT THE LIES OF THE ENEMY WHO WOULD STEAL YOUR JOY:

BY CLOUDING YOUR MIND!

 NOT THIS KIND, IF YOU CAN AVOID IT!:

 BUT ACCEPT THIS KIND OF CLOUDY!



LOVE TO ALL!

  5. Look and you will find your lotus throne is surrounded by what you perceive. But first one must be willing to sit on that flower and meditate.
