Yes they are!

Hi everyone,

This is the place where I was raised.

Mel has a picture of the Sierra Mountains and they are beautiful.

I used to ride a Honda 90 on the dirt roads.

I got stopped by a CHP and nearly had a hissie fit.

He didn't think that I was old enough to have a license.

Love,
Sleeping Beauty.

Hi Mel,

What a beautiful bird. It is so amazing that he is still there and it sounds like he is still looking for you.

It is really cool that you and your friend took pictures fourteen years apart of Liverwurst in the tree outside of the window where you lived for many years!

Blessings,

Who is outside your window; this was face-to-face!

As I returned from my mailbox with phone in hand a young coopers hawk perched on the swing set was staring down my bird feeders from a distance. Our eyes were locked in surprise and he didn't fly away!

For a moment I felt his kindred spirit, vibrant , young, with no thought of being ill. Reminds me that God takes care of the birds in the field.

He will surely see us through!!

P.S. later that day I found the nuthatch feathers from his lunch. That hawk never gave up!!

Hello everyone!

Every evening at approximately 5:30 pm (ish) I head on out to pick up my daughter at her job....At this time, the crows (thousands!!) are beginning to flock to their trees to roost for the evening........swarms and swarms of them flying from tree to tree...............waiting for the right moment when they leave those trees, again numbering in the thousands......to flock to their final destination.

This year it is in the branches of the trees that border the mall 3 miles from my apartment.....and that is only one of the final roosting sights for the evening...there are many!

The County where I live in Central Pennsylvania is the place where these crows "Winter Over" in the months of January and February. Somethingtocrowabout is the link that can be Binged, or Googled to see pics. They have a face book page, as well.

The reason I am writing this post is, that the other day, out my window in the early evening, is a group of trees that the crows picked that night for their flocking "start". My yard was filled with hundreds and hundreds of crows, and I so wished I could have got a good camera shot to include in this post! However, it just didn't do the scene justice. It is sort of like the Mummers Parade, you just "have to be there" for the full appreciation....
Soooo back to you, Mel! What's growing, kiddo???

You have such a green thumb. I always love to see your pictures.

You are very talented in photography and gardening it looks like as well.

I tried to plant some flowers and squash this summer but the flowers look like sticks and the squash grew huge leaves but no produce. Better luck next summer.

Dear Donald and Freddie Bean,

Just wanted to say thank you for the pictures you always post! I enjoy them and have been remiss in telling you so.

Donald, I used to ride a bike to lose weight. I lost 70 pounds in a year! But, I really enjoyed it! I hope when I'm better, I can try it again!

Freddie, You have the best stories, quotes, etc... I dearly love listening to you on the phone calls! Plus, I love your accent!

Dear Ruth Ann,

I enjoyed your gardening story so much! I used to garden a lot too! I had beautiful front and back yards! I got many compliments on them. You are right there is something satisfying, peaceful, and soothing working in the soil. I used to go straight to work in the yards when I got home from work (teaching - early). it always made me feel good and happy!

Like you there came a day when I could no longer get on my knees and my health would not allow me to do all I used to do. but I do love flowers, plants, and trees! I enjoy nature walks and I love facebook for the nature and God's beautiful creations I can find there from all over the world. It is amazing!!

Thank you so much for sharing!! It brought back some wonderful memories for me!

Hugs and Love, Robin

WHO'S GOT THE BUTTER?

Got my camera working and here are the popcorn plant pictures.

My husband went to Wall-mart for the grow light and they didn't have any saying they are a seasonal item.

We had a grow light that I had broken the bulb in accidentally and my son went to the store that sells them and replaced it for me.

Its now under a light 12 hours per day and is looking good. Some of the leaves and flowers had already fallen off but, it seems to be holding its own now.

It needs a lot of water. Should I feed it?

Good morning everyone,

My Garden Story

As you all know I was brought up living on a farm and my mother was a teacher and she had the summers off. So we gardened, canned, went to 4-H softball games and entertained relatives on vacation at our house, and we cooked dinner for those my dad had helping him baling hay.

Needless to say we were busy but still had time to just sit on the front porch and watch what was going on outside. We found baby coons under our porch, saw snakes in the front yard when raking and etc. Never a dull moment.
"
My dad would plow the garden then disc it to prepare it for planting. He would also plant a lot of sweet corn in the edge of the corn field for the "boys" to sell to make a few dollars. They sold it off the back of the truck on M-60, then the main road between Chicago and Detroit which was about 2 1/2 miles south of us. Mother and I and my 2 brothers would plant seeds and plants in the garden. All kinds of vegetables (and yes hot peppers one year by mistake) and some flowers. Then we all would work to keep the weeds out. I, many days saw my dad out hoeing in the garden, after the evening meal. We patiently, and sometimes o so patiently, waited for the garden produce to mature even though we knew we would be helping can or freeze all of it. Of course we were able to eat it to. We had sweet corn on the cob many days when in season.

My brothers, and being a girl you would think I wouldn't get involved in these kind of things,
but alas sometimes I did. When the tomatoes ripened we would find some that had rotted, intentionally or not, and we threw rotten tomatoes at each other. How did my folks put up with such behavior? Probably because they did the same things.

When I left home I continued to garden throughout the years but as I got busier with my family some years the garden didn't happen. But, I always had flowers even though only a few. Something about flowers and working in the soil is humbling and good for the soul.

Tom and I were married, (we both had kids from previous marriages) in 1977 we had 6 kids and they all lived with us, I really started the flower gardening in ernest. Well, the kids all graduated and went on their way and Tom and I moved to the country. That's where my flower gardening went crazy and I planted and dug up the soil and planted. I was very proud of my gardens. Of course I had to weed and water a lot but that's ok - I enjoyed it. I had intended to sell flowers and had the state inspect my gardens for disease and approve them to sell. I did get licensed to sell, but alas in 1996 my oldest son passed away and in my trying to deal with the emotions around that I worked during the day and gardened when I was home. It seemed to help. In so doing I got out the roto tiller and tilled up a new flower garden and injured my back where today I'm extremely sensitive to vibration. I don't ride in a car except for very short distances to my chiropractor (1 quarter a mile). In 2009 I was forced to retire because I couldn't ride in a car. The last day I worked I drove the 2 1/2 mile ride home and it took me 1 hour - my L4 and L5 had slipped out of place. With patience and time I healed up and could work outside. I patiently started the long road to build a garden that would allow me to be on the Kalamazoo Garden Tour. So in 2011 I was selected to be one of the 5 or 6 houses in our city for the Tour. About 500 people came and it was very hot that day. This had been a dream of mine for a long time. We had to move into town so I was closer to work and I left the gardens I had built and started all over. Then we moved again and we dug up a trailer load of flowers and took them with us. The new neighbors were watching to see you was moving in. One said "oh, their first load is a trailer full of flowers, they are ok". It has been a joke ever since then, 15 years ago
As all things change over time, my injury has gotten worse and I can no longer garden. We have taken up a lot of the flowers and given them away to other gardeners. One couple came by and wanted my grasses. They then had to come back and did them up. What a job it was and they sure got a workout over a week digging.

I now have a gardner and she has become a friend. She planted some daffodil and tulip bulbs for me this fall. They really don't take much work and they offer so much beauty in the early spring.

I now enjoy the few flowers that I have very much. My son will sometimes go cut a few peony flowers and bring them inside to enjoy or stop at the local grocery that has flowers and bring me home a bouquet.

That's my story. I thank the Lord for all he has blessed me with over my life and the enjoyment of the outdoors and of course flowers. Blessings to all Ruth Ann

Hello To All,

When I bike ride out to the ponds I pass a park along the way that is on the Sea looking out to the Islands.

The Islands are 4.4-miles away & they protect the Harbor from the North East winds that can blow strong at times.

It is nice to see the boats cruising these waters.

Stay Strong & Many blessing to you all.

This is one of our best stories ever from the forum archives.

THE FISH LIVES!!!

Thanks Pam, wherever you are today!

Mel




THE FISH LIVES!!!


This should make you laugh, and amuse you.

The other evening when I went to turn out the light I looked down and my beautiful little Beta Fish 'Buddy' was floating on his side. I am so sappy I started crying and saying 'oh no buddy please don't die!'

My next thought was 'how do you perform CPR on a fish?

I thought -'OK' I am giving the fish some MMS , it lives or dies . I mixed a solution of 3 drops and 15 drops lemon(the whole time thinking )' will a fish be ok with lemon?' I turned out the light and went to bed.

When I got up in the morning the first thing I looked at was Buddy. He was swimming - happy as a lark, straight side up. I could not believe my eyes.

Now, he is getting mms 1 or 2 times a day, same dose.

And I now have one of those spectacular off the wall stories to tell that I always read and say 'REALLY?'

For what its worth - 'THE FISH LIVES!'

God Bless you,
Pamela Mae

Hello Everyone and Welcome as Always,

As you can see the view from my terrace of the Reno Balloon Races is incredible.

I am blessed for the past 14 years with three mornings on the second weekend every year in September. I'll come out on my terrace early in the morning just when the sun is coming up.

I am armed with my first cup of coffee or tea as well as a blanket as it's usually in the mid 40's. I feel energized and blessed to get this incredible visual.

Hope You Enjoy

God Bless You All, Those who did not give up HOPE, got well.

Mel

PS: anyone who restores their health and wishes to share this visual with me, is welcome!

Thank you Mel,

For bringing this thread near the top so I and others can see it for the first time!

Lovely and inspiring pictures touched me, leaving peace and serenity within.

I like to think to myself that someday when this journey to Mount Wellness is finished, I will travel while living in my 1993 Toyota Previa Van to visit.

To personally thank you for allowing no compromise in your mission to help and guide all of us here back to Wholeness!

May light and joy and peace abide in you and all of us together.

Hello Everyone and Wlecome,

Somehow the name "Who's Outside Your Window" has changed for the day to "What's Outside Your Window". As most of you know who or what are not high on my personal priority mode. To me it has always been the beauty of the content! Therefore I hope you all enjoy What's Outside My Window as much as I do on a daily basis.

Hello Everyone and Welcome,


This past Saturday morning, around 6:30AM (Pacific) I viewed from my terrace the largest pod of pelicans I had ever seen in the pond.


I decided to go in and grab my camera, go downstairs and try to capture a decent picture of these magnificent birds. Hopefully you'll enjoy them as much as I have.

Those who did not give up HOPE got well!


God Bless You All,

Mel,
I'm happy to see that you live in such a beautiful place,but also that you absorb it and apreciate it every single day!:-).
In order for us to heal I think we all really need to take that time out to rest our minds and breathe.
But sometimes we forget the importance of that when we are in turmoil
Your pictures are lovely.
Thanks!

Hello Everyone and Welcome,



As the rest of you may be enjoying an early spring, you can see in the picture that Ole Man Winter has paid us a late visit. No worries though, we are about to experience clear skies and mid 60's to low 70's over the next five days. We sure could have used the water so I view it as a blessing.



Have a Great Day!

Dear Mel, that tree is gorgeous! It's white flowers are perfectly glorious! Your message is so true, wait until the storm passes before making a decision like cutting down a barren tree in the winter, or you may be making quite a big mistake! And, thank you for all your support during this awful flu bug I've had this week! I'm on the mend and as you reminded me, at least now I have an immune system and it's fighting hard, very hard.
Oh, I also wanted to ask who was the photographer for that amazing full moon photo? Was that you also? It truly is stunning.
Lots 'o love!

Never cut a tree down in the wintertime.

Never make a negative decision in the low time.

Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods.

Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.

Rev. Robert H. Schuller

This is a wonderful perspective and a great way of saying "Never, Ever Give Up Hope"

Hey Mel

Pretty cool, brother. And I see a certain irony in this picture.

So many are gambling so much down in that little city lighting up the valley.

Yet, from above, we know there is the "sure thing" that is your protocol. We also are reminded to "Always take the high ground!"

Godspeed,

As fall is developing, we are reminded that our last opportunities to surf the lake are drawing near.



So to honor my mother and end my mourning I have designated Friday as possibly my last surf day of the season.

Hello Everyone.

Welcome as always.

I recently had a visit from Isaiah. One of the things I noticed was the beautiful design of the feathers on his wings. He has apparently found a girl friend and I am hoping that they will choose to nest on or around the pond.

I will keep you posted on how things progress with our royal couple.

God Bless; Never give up Hope!

Hi Mel,

Thanks for the photos and updates on your feathered friends.

We lived for many years in a beautiful spot overlooking a natural bird habitat with eagles nesting directly above our home every year. We even named our home school "Eagles Nest Academy" in honor of them.

We sadly had to sell our home last year to move our daughter to a healthier environment and to continue to fund our recovery from Morgellons. I thought we would never see the eagles nesting so close to our residence again as we were moving to what to us constitutes "the city".

You can imagine our surprise and joy when only two weeks later in our rental home we spotted a bald eagle in the tree tops of our neighbor's back yard. He came only once and the neighbors say they have never seen such a thing here in the past. I believe the Lord sent that eagle to us to let us know that wherever we are or how far we travel in our efforts to get well, He is still with us.

Just thought I'd share my eagle story too. . . thanks for sharing yours. I hope Isaiah enjoys his Christmas dinner! ;-)

Much love,

Deborah B.

Hello Mel

Thanks for the great new pictures of Isaiah on top of your beloved Liverwurst in the Hope and Inspiration section.


For those of you that may not be fully aware of this magnificent bird (Liverwurst) and the message of hope that he delivered
to Mel when he was very sick with Morgellons, you should visit the Hope and Inspiration page and read about him.

Liverwurst remains here as a light for those of you in your journey to get well. He can inspire you to continue when you
need that special reason not to give up.

So good to see Little Salami doing well too!

Blessings,
Peter

Hello Everyone,

As you can see here, Isaiah now has taken Little Salamis place in the trees outside the windows of my living room. We look at each other in the first picture. I then went out on my terrace and he turned his head and gave me a scary look, so I said "Knock it off tough guy" and he then looked down at the ground. I said "Good boy! I will buy you a three pound trout for Christmas."

These precious heaven sent messengers have surrounded me since 2006 when I gave it up To HIM!

God bless you all. Those who don't give up HOPE get well!

Mel

Mel,

In Native American Spirituality, hawks are said to be 'messengers'. Nope...not kidding, you can look it up. So, yes...your friend delivered his message perfectly... That you are strong, you would perserve and you would thrive beyond Morgellons. ;-) And, he was soooo right! Muah!

Mel,your story of Liverwurst is very simular to my experience with an Osprey.An Osprey is commonly called a sea eagle.Shortly after my husband died suddenly,I asked for a sign form him via God.Every morning at the time he died,I visited the site where he died.He diet on a knoll above his business site.Very soon after he died,I always saw Osprey flying overhead at the precise time of his death everyday.One day I asked God to let me know if this was my sign.In other words as humans go,we always want more.As I was driving away from the site,one of the Osprey landed on the edge of the pit in front of me.I stopped the car and got out.I walked within 5 feet of him and he kept eye contact even after I begin talking to him.My son-in-law at the time happened to be there and saw what was happening.He had pulled his truck over behind mine.I did not realized he was behind me until he spoke.He said 'I have never seen anything like that before'.Refeering to a hawk allowing a human to get that close and stay around for her to actually talk to her.Unfortunately,when he spoke,the hawk looked at him and flew away.Interestingly,my husband did not care for our son-in-law as he had been unfaithful to our daughter.In my grief,I resented the interuption but kept it to myself.For 1 year,I was there almost every morning of the week,I saw the Osprey everytime I came but never had another encounter with this bird.
I feel this was God's way of letting me know death may seperate you physically but the hearts and spirits stay bonded for life.He was a symbol of hope and purpose.As people leave our lives,others are still here.We need to work to get better for ourselves as well as others.God Bless and keep us all.
