Of Bluebells and Cornflowers

This morning, comes to my mind, a very Olde Family story.

In the Mountains, such as my Family lived, and later, where I with my pack of dogs and my Beloved lived, there was a beautiful little glade filled with wildflowers. These wildflowers would jump out at me, wild yellow pea flowers, stunning lavender blue cornflowers, and the bluest of bluebells alongside shamrocks with blue flowers. So many shades and colors of blue, the wild peas interspersed were like the rays of sunshine streaming through the blue petals dancing in a protected mountain breeze.

This little glade was unseen against the courser of eyes….such as eyes who would be looking for grander examples of beauty or riches. Eyes that see what they want to see. Eyes looking for some glory to spend elsewhere, not seeing that God provided for free, a wealth of great measure. These eyes see no wealth in the field. No Spirit in the field.

For a short time, under early summer moonlight, the white bluebells and harebells would come up. Their Divine Purpose to drink in the moonbeams to radiate outwards in the day, in an unmeasured amount, with unmeasured love. The Organic Moonshine during the night helped oversee the development of the seeds, which would drop to the ground and be next year’s baby plants.

And in this dance, the pollinators swing their hips, their waists and their legs, in the Holy Work of pollination. This dance so intimate, so bare petaled, with tiny toe points and petal steps.

And the Divine Love was there, all set up, planted and dancing, and the only cost was to go look, and inhale with awe. This story, of Mountain Wildflowers, is the story of deepest love. But one has to sometimes focus the eyes from courser to finer lens to truly see. Where love is repeatedly evasive, remember it may be the eyes, for love is just there, sitting in the glade, in the sunshine, moonshine, winds and Flying Being toe tips. It is there on the inhale and the exhale, and the meanderings of the larger soul in which we all live in.

This is an Olde Family story from tradition, back in the time when stories were still told around the kitchen fire, and bread was made with love…

Prayers and $ Collection for a Liver Transplant for Mizan!

Mizan and Eman Raheem have been members of our Azure group for many years. They have given our group many blessings, and supported many others who have had a hard time. This is their turn, for a blessing. Please send prayers, love, and $ for a liver transplant their way! Please spread around to your friends!!!

Dear Friend,

Mizan Raheem is fighting for his life.

In 2008, he was diagnosed with a life-threatening liver disease, and he learned he was suffering from liver cancer in 2014. Doctors say a liver transplant is critical to his survival. Together, he and his wife, Eman, have five children, and he is incredibly thankful for their love and support. He loves spending time with his family, and he enjoys taking walks, reading, meditating and practicing qigong. After receiving his transplant, he looks forward to freedom from liver disease and all the complications that accompany it. But right now, he needs your help.

Unfortunately, Mizan’s hope for a new life comes at a very high price.

The average liver transplant costs approximately $575,000. And that’s only the beginning. Even with health insurance, which will cover a portion of the transplant costs, he faces significant expenses related to the surgery. For the rest of his life, he will need follow-up care and daily anti-rejection medications. Post-transplant medications are very expensive, and they’re as critical to his survival as the transplant itself.

When he receives his transplant, Mizan must temporarily relocate 170 miles from home to be near the hospital for at least three months during recovery, incurring substantial expenses for travel, food and lodging. While he is thankful to still be able to work, he has missed a great deal of time due to traveling for doctors’ appointments, adding to the financial strain.

What if your life depended on the compassion and generosity of others?

The National Foundation for Transplants (NFT) is working with volunteers and supporters to help relieve the growing burden of expenses for Mizan. NFT has been assisting transplant patients with fundraising support for more than 30 years. Your gift—of $25, $50, $100 or more—will enable NFT to provide Mizan with the financial support he desperately needs.

You can help by visiting http://patients.transplants.org/mizanraheem to make a tax-deductible donation to NFT in his honor.

If you have any questions about NFT, feel free to contact the staff at 800-489-3863.

Many Thanks!
