The Faerie Way

I love fairies! There's lots of beautiful faerie art work but here I have two poems. The first one is my favorite! :)

Okay so it's not much of a poem but you love it, I know you do.

Dragon Pictures

I love dragons. Always have. I'm one of those people who hates that so often dragons are the bad guys in movies and literature. :)

Anry - Comfort of Friends

My all time favorite dragon picture.

Angel Art

I do believe in angels. Really. Not the wings and halo angels, but the spiritual beings that help us through this life. I also love angel art work. Here are a some examples. I'll probably be adding more and more over time.

Protection and Comfort

I've always liked this picture.

I wish I knew who the artist was.

Beautiful and powerful.

The Seven by Kishokahime - Gabriel, Raphael, Michael, Uriel, Raziel, Remiel, and Raguel

I don't know who the artist is but I've always loved this depiction of Archangel Michael.

A Clear Perspective

A Clear Perspective
from 'The Language of Letting Go' by Melody Beattie
Too often, we try to gain a clear perspective before it is time. That will make us crazy. We do not always know why things are happening the way they are. We do not always know how a particular relationship will work out. We do not always understand the source of our feelings, why we've been led down a particular path, what is being worked out in us, what we are learning, why we had to wait, why we needed to go through a time of discipline, or why a door closed.

How our present circumstances will work into the larger scheme of events is not always clear to us. That is how it needs to be. Perspective will come in retrospect. We could strain for hours today for the meaning of something that may come in a instant next year. Let it go.

We can let go of our need to figure things out, to feel in control. Now is the time to be. To feel. To go through it. To allow things to happen. To learn. To let whatever is being worked out in us take its course. In hindsight, we will know. It will become clear. For today, being is enough. We have been told that all things shall work out for good in our life. We can trust that to happen, even if we cannot see the place today's events will hold in the larger picture.

Today I will let things happen without trying to figure everything out. If clarity is not available to me today, I will trust it to come later, in retrospect. I will put simple trust in the truth that all is well, events are unfolding as they should, and all will work out for good in My Life - better
than I can imagine.

I would have talked less and listened more.

I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was
stained and the sofa faded.

I would have eaten the popcorn in the 'good' living room
and worried much less about the dirt when someone wanted to light a fire in the

I would have taken the time to listen to my grandfather ramble about hisyouth.

I would never have insisted the car windows be rolled up on a summer day because my hair had just been teased and sprayed. 
I would have burned the pink candle sculpted like a rose before it melted in storage.
