There are situations and circumstances which simply cannot be entirely controlled.  There are times when we aren’t the ones in charge.  We are NOT always the bus drivers of our own lives.

             Even though we did sketch out our life plan, we are not really the ones running this show.  What I heard earlier is a reminder…….

to trust.

             When I’m on my bike, pedaling along in the designated lane, I have complete faith in all those drivers behind me.  I must absolutely believe that none of them will get distracted/have a stroke/look away and leave their part of the road to smash into mine.

             Every day we all walk out of our homes and wear that exact sort of trusting garment.  We have to, there’s no other way to get anything done.

             What the Universe wants us to realize is, that’s fine.  We can be alert to our lack of control, but we never need to dwell on it.   Or even, give it a second thought.  Things happen.  It’s a fact.

             The other fact is, the trust we put in others is what reinforces our soul, and connects us with everyone else.  We hand over bits of ourselves constantly; others entrust us with their precious belongings, too.  That’s part of cohabiting here.

             To trust is also about faith, and believing.  Having enough security to know that we’re okay.  Because, we are.

             In today’s draw, we are allowed to go even further down this path.


“Believing in Magic  ~

‘True magic is abounding in my life!’

Card Meaning:

It is indeed a magical Universe.  Spiritual dimensions and mystical realms are only a thought away.  The key to opening these doors is to trust in something you cannot see or hear.

You can have doubts yet still believe in a vast and mysterious universe, where signs, symbols, and coincidences reveal secret messages.  Even if your faith is the size of a mustard seed, magic can abound.  Believe!

The Universe wants you to know:

Some things are true, even if you don’t believe them.  It’s hard to comprehend how something as heavy as a jumbo jet can fly, but it does.

When you make an overseas call, it’s hard to believe that your voice travels into space and bounces back, but it does.

And it’s sometimes hard to believe that angels are looking over us, but they are.  Here’s to believing in magic.

Questions to ask yourself:

How can I access even more magic in my life?  What is the most important way for me to step into true magic?  If I truly believed in magic, in what ways would my life be different?


True magic is abounding in my life!”

Today’s Kitchen Adventures:

began early, we got up (not before noon, though) and hit the Farmer’s Market.  Bringing home a HUGE amount of spinach.  (The Instagram version.)

             We made dip.  (Thank you, Karen Buys!)  After the wilting and sautéing happened, there was left-over (but super flavorful) oil.  Which we (and by “we” I obviously mean Daniel) crafted into salad dressing.

Tastes better than it looks,
or rather, better than I can phone-photo.

             Organics.  Clean food.  The truly good stuff we make at home.  Yes, it’s more work, but honestly, it’s worth it  (and in the end, cheaper).  Also?  Not one damn bit of it has an onion anywhere nearby.  Which makes it NOT terrible, and in fact, extremely good.
