sending lots of love your way...

One love my virtual friend is all that
is needed to make the world go round
One love to make us smile and enjoy
the simple things we take for granted
One love is this beautiful gift you
have begun
One love is knowing someone
without ever having met them
One love lovely friend is what
I am sending to you
ONE LOVE
(written by Cathie)

Greetings friends,

As you can see in the photo above, my *gift of jewels* arrived at my doorstep, filled with love and wonder. It looked so delicious that I almost ate the cookie off the paper. What a warm feeling these jewels bring to my soul. And the words of "one love" living inside this beautiful handmade card, sheer bliss. Thanks so much Cathie from Melbourne Epicure. I just LOVE it! And guess what else? As soon as my jewel arrived, the weather outside warmed up. Coincidence? I think not.

I am still tracking about a dozen jewels making their way around the world. If you haven't received your jewel yet, please feel free to email me (necessaryroom@gmail.com).
*
I have been spending a lot of time lately in the inner sanctum of my necessary room. prayer and meditation are in order.
*
I pray long and hard these days for the people of haiti now that the rainy season is upon them. so far, at least 9 people have died as a result of the heavy rains and 2 others remain missing. hurricane season will soon follow. JAH JAH, please hold them in the palm of your hands and protect them throughout these new challenges.
*
I wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU to all of you for your kind comments and expressions of condolences regarding the loss of our beloved grandma. She was never one to sit around moping over things she could not change but was constantly striving to make the world around her better for the next generation. And she did. Again, my family thanks you deeply.

One Love.

Oh, but that is such a pretty card from Cathie--love the Valentine glow it has! Still have the people of Haiti and Chili, and everywhere really, on my mind...*prayers*...And more on their way to you dear Se'Lah & your family during this time of loss. Grandma was a great lady... We never really lose our loved ones as long as they live alive in our hearts & minds. Take you time, my friend... pray, meditate, be, love... ((LOVE & HUGS))

I think it's great that the weather warmed up when your jewel arrived. Signs of Love and Spring are everywhere.

We also keep the people of Haiti in our prayers, along with the other countries who have been hit with earthquakes over the past few weeks.

That is such a beautiful poem written by Cathie!

Our community hasn't forgotten the people of Haiti either. Our middle school children are planning another fundraiser right now.

What a beautiful gift!!! The note to you is quite so on point. Between receiving that & the weather getting better, it sounded like a great day. And many condolences to you & your family @ your grandmother's home-going. I remember the pics. you posted - she was ADORABLE. I have a special fondness for the elderly.
