There are a lot of posts on social media these days about the power of happiness. Happiness is today’s key to prosperity, health, love – all that is to be strived for in this life. I have nothing against happiness. Being happy is pleasant, but personally I am a huge fan of peace, above all else.
I love silence. There is nothing as soothing and spiritual and beautiful as silence. Peace exists in silence.
I love the infinite depth of peace, that feeling of absolute immortality.
I love the security of peace. I cherish opportunities to spend peaceful, happy, quality time with loved ones.
I love the kindness of peace. I love those moments that touch your heart with sweetness.
I love the simplicity of peace. I love how easy it is to focus and think and create when there is peace.
I love the strength and power of peace. I love the ability to rise above all challenges to the place where everything is natural and stress free.
With snow on the ground, this seemed like a good day to share a few pics of our trip to the Devonian Gardens just outside of Edmonton Alberta. Set in a backdrop of natural evergreens, there are acres of cultured gardens, unique architecture and even a small butterfly house.
I am Canadian! I have always been proud to be Canadian and I have always been grateful to be Canadian. I am still proud and grateful to be Canadian🇨🇦
These days I am less than excited about some of my fellow Canadians.
I am not now, nor have I ever been a fan of Don Cherry. To be honest I am not a hockey fan so for the most part I have been able ignore him, if not his history of ignorant remarks.
I am not now, nor have I ever been a fan of the rude, arrogant, entitled Alberta attitude. I support the Canadian oil industry and definitely believe such products should be shipped via pipelines. I also support the enforcement of regulations to protect our environment and the investment in renewable resources.
I am not a fan of Andrew Scheer, Jason Kenney, Scott Moe, Doug Ford or Yves-Francois Blanchet. I would be the first to respect anyone’s right to vote for them but they will never get my vote.
I love Canada. I support diversity, economic growth and environmental protection. I support Canadian values – kindness, respect, peace, pride, hard work and unity.
