Little lambs of innocence

Dear readers,

This afternoon I went to my voluntary work with special cats in the sanctuary in Zuidwolde, a little village nearby my hometown Groningen.

In the wintertime I had to go by bus, but now was the second time in 2 months I could use my bicycle.

On my way home I saw beautiful little lambs. I stopped to enjoy the sight and make some pictures. They were playing, lighthearted carefree and full of joy. The little lambs filled my heart with joy and love. Especially on this Easter Sunday I feel blessed by their presence and our encounter, herewith recalling on me the Holy Innocence of Jezus Christ.

After a while I went on my way and saw a lovely place with a bench to enjoy the view of the green border of our neighborhood.

I sat down and looked at the trees, the waterways, the birds, the gras. The sun was shining on all of us. It felt good.

Than I felt the remembrance of the awesome trees and wonderful nature of Mid-Southern Germany, far away. The feeling took my by surprise and it filled my heart with love and gratitude. And at the same time it made me sad for I realised how much I yearn to be with Mother Nature and in the presence of Her wonderful creatures. I cried tears of sorrow and I cried tears of joy.

Now I am home and the feeling of gratitude is the feeling that remains. I’m grateful to be part of Gods Creation and to experience the blissful heartfelt connection with Mother Nature and therefore with God.

I wish you all a blissfull Easter full of Light and Love and Reflection.

New beginning – lessons to learn

The year 2015 is now 16 days “young” … and I wish her start has been blissfull and promissing to you …

I’ve decided to let go of old things and start anew. A new beginning not only by mind but also by heart.

The world is in turmoil … I have mixed feelings.

The recent events in France are awfull and I understand why the fast majority of our population wants to send a message of disapproaval of terrorism.
But my heart also goes out to the female victims of rape in India, to the abducted and abused schoolgirls in Nigeria, to the innocent warvictims in the world.

The message of Jezus Christ was to love all beings, for we are all part of Gods Creation.

The world we engage and experience is a mirror of our own actions, thoughts and feelings …
when I encounter abuse or suffering, it is up to me to act on the situation. Sometimes by deeds, but allways in my heart … not by judging nor by condemning but by aknowledging the truth and by forgiving.
I have yet much more lessons to learn.

Gladly there have been wonders too … for instance a piglet that was found wandering a snowy road. He was picked up and brought to a safehaven. He, or she, was probably ment for a privat slaughter, for no one has claimed possession.
Closer to home I have wittnessed some wonders too. For instance the opening of new creative possibilities and the fact that my old lady-cat Sammy is still with us, giving us joy and laughter.

Christmastime

Christmas is the time of reflection and contemplation. Jezus Christ came over 2000 years ago among us and gave us the opportunity to reunite with God by accepting Him in our hearts.

As a little girl I fellt very much connected to Jezus. As I grew up and as an adult I lost that feeling of Loving Innocence. I turned away from God and didn’t let him in my heart nor my life.

But God never left me and I’m part of Him. This much I have learned the past year.

When I look around me, the world in generally has lost its love and compassion. For what human beings are we if we have no love and compassion? I am glad there are people who do have this deep and profound connection to God. Who wholesome and fullhearted live in Gods Light, who therefor are Gods Light.

Let us – me included – take responsibility for our world and our actions, let us find our way back home to God.

So that no suffering is induced or created. So that respect and truthfullness arise and we have a chance of healing ourselves and the world.

Thus way we can honour the life and teachings of Jezus Christ, the Son of God.

I wish you all a peacefull and loving Christmastime.
