Subject: Simple words
These words are from my friend & mom's caregiver.
In a garden an angel stands
Silver wings flutter,
In gentle winds.
Butterflies around her fly,
Gently lifting her to the sky.
Her body is lavender clad,
A smile upon her face,
Shows she is glad.
Sunlight around her glows,
As love from her heart
To you flows.
From Ouida to Shari
I am free.
I have no more pain.
I am not afraid.
I see you there.
Do not despair.
You will hear me whisper.
Softly on the wind.
You will know my love,
I, am, in heaven above.
Shari these words came to me from your Mom this morning after we
talked. I hope they bring you some peace.
'Accidentally' came across this e-mail this week, and thus on this the one year anniversary of mOM's first full day in heaven, this image was born to honor these SimpleWords.
The back of one of mOM's creations. She was an excellent seamstress.
A shot of the sky taken and developed this week.
My mOM was a Gemini.

One of the many flutterbyes that adorn my mOM's butterfly house.
Thus my quest for the GreenRose is complete.

Comment on Michelle'blog of 12192007, which is the AngelDay of LauRA's brother.
Just came across this beautiful lady;
I had ordered her CD, Magdalene's Gift awhile back, but had forgotten about it until it 'accidentally' fell out of it's hiding place! Shades of Loreena McKennitt!
Jane, who cOMmunicated with mOM in SimpleWords, had just sent me an e-card with an angel playing harp music. Since I had been thinking I wanted to change the CD in my car, I guess mOM heard me, 'cause when the CD 'accidentally' fell out of it's hiding place, I decided that this was the CD 2 change 2. Well, guess what??, the first song was Ani's very angelic voice accOMpanied by her very angelic harp music!!
Jane's e-card contained this message:

As Our Angels stand in the Garden, They give to us Their music and Everlasting love. Even though snowflakes may be falling, their light shimmers brightly amongst the Butterflies and Flowers all around. Jane's mOM crossed over a couple of weeks bee4 my mOM did.

4 the snowflakes story.
When I first saw this flower photo, I thought of it as 'Madonna & Child'. The heavenly 'Madonna' is connected to the earthly 'Child' thru the stem of the FLOWer. Seems an appropriate iMAge for this season of birth, death, remembrance and new beeginnings. The vesiKA butterfly is based on a sketch I did 2day in my newly beegun Lunaria journal.

4 the VesiKA & spiRAl stories.
Just 'accidentally' came across this comment posted originally here:

The spiral that is created by each soul which joins the stars creates one more pathway to the state of heaven. One more stairway those that linger behind yet a while, can climb to join in the beauty that gives us the glow of understanding. We seem to have such little understanding but our souls have all understanding. Jane
Here's another InSynk 'accidental' find from the day after I was laid off and Cochiti Pueblo's Feast Day and Bastille Day ~ July 14, 2007 9:36:12 PM MDT
When the soul leaves the body, it is no longer under the burden and control of space and time. The soul is free; distance and separation hinder it no more. The dead are our nearest neighbors; they are all around us. Meister Eckhart was once asked, Where does the soul of a person go when the person dies? He said, no place. Where else would the soul be going? Where else is the eternal world? It can be nowhere other than here. We have falsely spatialized the eternal world. We have driven the eternal out into some kind of distant galaxy. Yet the eternal world does not seem to be a place but rather a different state of being. The soul of the person goes no place because there is no place else to go. This suggests that the dead are here with us, in the air that we are moving through all the time. The only difference between us and the dead is that they are now in invisible form. You cannot see them with the human eye. But you can sense the presence of those you love who have died. With the refinement of your soul you can sense them. You feel that they are near...
We forget that there is no such thing as empty space. All space is full of presence, particularly of those who are now in eternal, invisible form.
01062008 Found this today in a search for Dolphin symbology. Celtic Butterfly: Research reveals that the symbolic meaning of the butterfly is similar across most cultures and time. Invariably, this beautiful Celtic animal symbol represents transformation, inspiration, and rebirth. The concept of rebirth with the Celts is particularly of importance in terms of recycling of life – both in the spiritual and physical realms. Perhaps the bible and the Byrds extol the concept best: "To every season, turn, turn turn." (sea http://zmyztickleonion.blogspot.com/2007/05/ojosdecernunnos.html) This was an intimate concept with the Celts, and the butterfly – in its miraculous way symbolizes transformation and rebirth.
Transition is common in all nature, and the Celtic woman would be keenly aware of its presence. As such, butterflies would adorn birthing gowns, blankets, and bed sheets as a sign of smooth transition when welcoming new babies into the village fold.
Celtic Dolphin: Many a tale has been told about the magic of dolphins. Their appearance off the shores of Ireland urged the Celts to contemplate an unknown universe – the sea. Those who could not settle to simply cogitate – Celtic seafarers held the dolphin in high regard.
It became a symbol of friendship, intelligence, and good luck. Its status of luck was likely related to the fact that the dolphin was most commonly seen on the seas when the weather and waves were calm and fair. The Celts innately understood the intimate relationship between nature and beast. However, did the sight of the lucky dolphin cause fair weather, or was it the weather beckoned the dolphin out of its depths? Clearly, it's a question of which came first – the chicken or the egg. Regardless, the dolphin is viewed as quite lucky indeed – and this quality combined with it's cleverness and speed in the waters made the dolphin a highly respected animal sign among the Celts. http://www.whats-your-sign.com/Celtic-animals.html
