Quote from Max Lucado’s fabulous book called “Morning and Evening Devotional Journal. Grace for the Moment by Max Lucado.”
I created the image below after having my piano tuned again last night.
This morning, when I was saying my daily prayers, readings and meditations I came across the quote that was just made for the picture that I created last night it is almost as though God directed me to that passage so I can put the two together.
What actions can you do here on earth that will play music on the keyboard of heaven?

I bought 20 beautiful large paperwhites about a month ago, and due to all the terrible weather events we had all over the world, they were delayed in the shipment. I contacted the people that I bought them from and one of the managers contacted me back and they were sent priority mail the next day.
Even though it’s Autumn here in Las Vegas, Nevada with very few if any fall leaves to be seen, I’m going to be creating “Springtime in Autumn” by forcing paperwhites indoors.
Bulbs are so easy to work with and you can keep them going for years. They’re awesome for a beginning gardener. Usually just plant them about 1/2 to 3 times deep of what the bulb size is; the planting directions will tell you.
Years ago in my first house in Sandy Utah, when I was married to the rocket scientist, Mark”s sweet and very generous grandmother Hazel Griffin sent us several hundred dollars worth of bulbs and I had fun playing them all over the yard in around the bhouse.
I kept those orchids going for many years after and they were absolutely gorgeous. There were jumbo gladiolus and red and yellow and tulips, because we got snow in Sandy, Utah which was 20 minutes away from Salt Lake City. It was just awesome living there. I wouldn’t do it now because of the high amount of snow Utah gets. it’s great we can have a guy cleaning the driveway, and when you’re driving in a car everywhere you go. But for me who walks and uses lift and gets around a myriad of ways, it wouldn’t be logistically smart. but I will always remember the extraordinary Panorama mountains and how it look like a painting, how clear it was from where we lived by the Wasatch mountains off to see the Capitol building we could see as clear as day. I would say that Sandy Utah Salt Lake City is the opposite of Las Vegas Nevada. They’re people with their doors open and as long as you were good people they were good to you. Here we have a high crime rate high fraud rate there’s weirdos and goofballs and drunks all over the place it’s the opposite of what that place was, and what many places are I like my place here and it is cheaper to live but there’s prices you pay for that.
Utah was beautiful country and that the Mormon people were so awesome so kind so nice because I learned all about there and even though I didn’t believe what they did we respected one another . I wish more people thought like that . You don’t have to agree with everybody just need to respect their viewpoints and their beliefs.
Around Christmas time at The Visitor Center, they spent about three months every year wiring lights all around Visitor Center it was absolutely gorgeous.
Back to the bulbs, you can keep bulbs going for years just by taking them out, if you live in an area where you can do daffodils outside, like I used to in Southern California, I naturalized them outdoors and my last house in Orange California with the now ex and, I had crocus coming up ‘the first to come up in the spring time and daffodils.
I love growing things this is the first place that I’ve had where I could actually do that and think of growing things once I learned how to do it here in the terribly hot southwest desert.
I hope that by airing this video and buy me writing this, you’ll think of creating “Springtime at Autumn” where you live, and adding joy to your desk or your window sill by planting some really beautiful paperwhites
I ordered these around my birthday August 31st, which was the time they recommend to plant these. But, if you plant them (force them) indoors, you can have these going all year.
It’s kind of like having Springtime in your window sill are on your desk, which is what I’ll be having in about 2 weeks once I plant them.
I have everything but the little glass planter that you need to do these and gravel hydroponically.
I’m soon getting ready to head for church but I wanted to air this.
As I learn the world learns with me, and that’s just one of the cool thing about having a blog that’s read all over the world.
God bless you all.
If you’re Mormon, Muslim, Jewish, Agnostic, Atheist, Buddhist, and any other Christian faith, or don’t know what you believe, I bless you anyway and I hope that only good comes to you in every way.
We’re all the same on this planet and it really doesn’t matter. What matters is how you act and how you treat people it’s not the name your faith and it’s not how many times you go to church.
None of that matters what matters is who you are, what you do and what you bring to the world and what you want to leave the world as because you were in it.

Here’s a note about the sparking American flag I used in the photo here….
It is one of my grandmother’s cherished pins she used to wear. She was my mother’s mother and singlehandedly raised her children on her own due to my grandfather James Hubert Hart dying of spinal meningitis when my mother was four years old.
Mom said the day that she finally realized that she was alive was the day she overheard someone talking about who is getting all the kids, and what houses they were all going to because Grandma couldn’t afford to take care of them all herself.
Grandma wasn’t afraid to take a man’s job in a time when it was was very unpopular for a woman to rivet airplanes -but she did.
There wasn’t anything that could stop my grandmother Ruby Hart.
She was proud to be an American citizen and so appreciative of everything that you ever did for her— just like my mother.
That’s why when she had Alzheimer’s disease-like my mother had, untiL she touched the face of God nearly a year ago I didn’t think anything of helping taking care of her.
I bought her big print Readers Digest books to encourage her to talk and keep her mind active…and they did.
She read one of them every day … so I bought more for her and she smiled as she read each story.
I found them at local libraries and we would talk about the stories in each story, which would inspire her to tell me about her life recalling memories of when she was younger.
I don’t have a digital image of Grandma-yet’ but I’ll create one for this story I didn’t know I was going to write, until writing the first sentence!
I know we have our trouble in America, but when you compare us to other countries- it’s pretty damn nice country anyway you look at it. We have precious freedoms another country can match.
I didn’t say God Bless America because I wanted everyone no matter who they were to be able to relate to the image and the meaning behind image.
I’m Christian so I’ll always say God Bless America, but as an empowered lady I would love to see all of us all over the world worry less about religion & culture and focus more about just treating each other kindly and know everyone has a right to believe what they feel strongly about.
As long as they are not hurting you or anyone then let him believe it if they find solace and peace through it.
Uniting as living, breathing people who have the power to good-is my dream for not only America but for the world.

- Make the things you’re involved with in life be positive chain reactions.
- Make people glad they know you.
- Don’t be manipulative.
- Don’t be a user.
- Be a giver.
- Don’t look for something every time you do something – good or positive for someone for no reason.
- When you give someone a gift that’s what that means – it’s a gift. You’re not looking for something in return. If you are looking for something in return, then that means you are manipulative and you’re doing it because you expect something- and it’s not a gift it all is it?
Make your intentions genuine.
Have big picture ideas where you see the big picture of the entire world and much as the nose on your face.
Shoot for longevity in the projects you’re working on.
Genuinely try and help every client, as unique a’s they are.
When you open your mind and think of opportunities and what you can give, and ways you could help each client—great things happen.
Don’t compare ourself to what everyone else is doing. Think outside the box and think for yourself. Expand on your ideas.
If all you do is follow others, you could be following mediocrity! You want to be the one that leads the way to new, brighter Horizons!
Opportunities will arise that will appear as though if by Magic. I am a very spiritual, intuitive, Christian lady; I know that “magic” is GOD.
Blessings will surface effortlessly when you have your mind off the dollars you’re getting for the job. Instead, focus on building lasting relationships and building in creating extraordinary projects that lead to recurring work and passive income.
Life is way more than quick payoffs.
Success isn’t measured by how much money you have in the bank but rather what kind of human being you are and what your value system is. You can make good money and add value to other people’s lives and enjoy doing it. All those things are possible for you and I. You have to give it all some serious thought though, with no distractions.
Everything you do in life builds your reputation, and from your soul, your mind and attitude, your heart and your brain- your reputation will follow you the rest of your life and each positive, proactive action carves your reputation.
Do exemplary things.
Don’t be afraid of hard work because there is a huge payoff that will help more than you awaiting you.
