Daily Feng Shui News for Feb. 17th – ‘Random Acts of Kindness Day’

On this ‘Random Acts of Kindness Day’ I suggest you do something nice for someone else with no expectation of reward. Roll the neighbor’s garbage pail off the street and into their yard. Or simply smile at a stranger. It’s not all about paying the toll for the car in back of you, although that’s as good an idea as any. You can make the biggest difference on this planet by simply doing the smallest act of kindness. If even a handful of us offer one random act today, we can create a wave of kindness that will wash over the whole planet.

Goddess Bless On This Fantastic Friday!

GOOD MORNING, WOTC! How ya’ doing this morning? We are fantastic. It is a balmy 12 degrees here. We have got the bikinis on, going to cut out early and do some sunbathing today! Just kidding by the way! But seriously we might as well I don’t believe it is going to warm up till September. I know a few days ago I promised not to gripe about the weather but…..I can’t find anything else to gripe about might as well, lol! Hmm, if I don’t have anything else to gripe about then life must be good. Hey that’s great!

Ok, I will stop the silliness and get down to business real quick. I hope you all realize by now, I actually hate talking about our financial situation & asking for donations. Because I really do, that is one reason we opened the store and started raffling off merchandise. At least that way I didn’t feel like a total bum. It is coming close to the end of this raffle, I figured it might be safe (I hope). We received a $700.00 electricity bill in the mail a few days ago. We don’t have the money to pay this at all. If you have been considering joining in on the raffle this month, we would definitely appreciate it. If not, we are going to be in crisis mode, again. You don’t have to give a lot every little bit is appreciated. Think it over because we could definitely use some help. We have never had an electricity bill like this and personally I don’t know what we are going to do. I know we have always survived with your help and most of all your love and we are deeply grateful to you.

I am going to run for now and get busy. I hope everyone has a super Friday and a great weekend. Stay in where it is warm and we will see you tomorrow.

Luv & Hugs,

Lady A

Understanding Prayer

Witchy Comments & Graphics


Understanding Prayer

Anon


Heavenly Father (or Mother), help us remember that the woman driver who cut us off in traffic last night, is a single mother who had worked nine hours, was rushing home to cook dinner, help with homework, do the laundry, and spend a few precious moments with her children;

Help us to remember that the pierced, tattooed, disinterested young man who can’t make change correctly is a worried 19-year-old college student, balancing his apprehension over final exams, with his fear of not getting his student loans for next semester;

Remind us too, that the scary looking bum, begging for money in the same spot every day (who really ought to get a job) is a slave to addictions that we can only imagine in our worst nightmares…

Help us also to remember that the old couple walking annoyingly slowly through the store aisles, blocking our shopping progress, are savouring this moment, knowing that based on the biopsy report she got last week, this will be the last year that they go shopping together.

Holy Divine, remind us each day that of all the gifts you give us, the greatest gift is love. It is not enough to share that love with those we hold dear. Open our hearts not just to those who are close to us, but to all of humanity. Let us be slow to judge, quick to forgive, and show patience and empathy and love.

Amen

A Little Holiday Cheer for You This Wonderful Wednesday!

 

 

See now you have something to do at work. You can just full screen the videos, turn up the speaker and party down. Hmm, partying to Yule music, Oh, what the hay, we do it every year, lol!

Have a great day, my friends!

Oh, one more little thing, please remember we are accepting donations to help pay our server bill (which just happens to be due this month like everything else)!

Would You Still Like To Give Another Gift This Season?

Miscellaneous Christmas Comments
Well, just in case you did……The WOTC would appreciate any gifts you would like to bestow on it this season. We pay our server bill every three months and it is now due. I know I hate to keep asking for donations. I will figure out one of these days how to  make us some money. Sell spells, oops! that’s unethical, you didn’t hear me say that, lol! I just thought I would drop a little hint in case you had a penny or two you didn’t won’t…….

Happy Holidays!!!

I just got this crazy, crazy idea……..

Witchy Comments
I just got this crazy, crazy idea especially for a Witchcraft Blog, lol! What do you say we throw all the News, Recalls and other stuff out the window today? Instead lets’ go totally ‘Witchy,’ what do you say? You know add some info on the Craft on here, then add some potions, tinctures, spells, rituals and who knows what else!

What do you say? You with me?

 

Oh, please don’t forget, we still need donations to keep us on the net. Friday, August 10th is our deadline to come up with the money to pay our server bill. We still need some more help! If you are enjoying today’s posts, we are glad. But stop to think, if you had no place to go to read info like this. Imagine, nothing being in our place. Totally empty internet space, not a good thought is it? Please take a moment and give what you can. We appreciate every dime and it all adds up.

For those of you, that have already donated….Thank you so very much. Your donations mean the world to us. We appreciate your love and support. Thank you for being friends of the WOTC!

Good & Blessed Sunday To All Our Dear Friends!

Good Sunday Morning/Afternoon to all of our dear friends! I hope everyone has had a beautiful weekend so far. I must apologize for not being online for the past two days, well really one. Yesterday, I did what I have planned on doing Friday but couldn’t. I couldn’t because our service provider dropped our service. Why? Because we couldn’t pay our bill. I talked and talked till I was blue in the face and got an extension on the bill. We now have to the second week in August to pay it. I only bought us sometime. We don’t have the money to pay it, at this time the contributions are extremely low and we are flat broke. Being flat broke is a very horrible feeling. I keep hoping and praying for a way to pay all our bills to turn up. But to this date, nothing!

 

Then when I finally did get on the internet, I started changing the graphics on the blog. I had made a header (since I had a lot of free time Friday) for the blog. I admit it looked good. Some of you might have saw it. It was on the group for awhile. I had changed the background, everything looked fantastic. Then the type/font wouldn’t show up. Well come to find out, you have to buy a kit from WordPress for $30 that allows you to change the color of the font. $30! Heck it might as well be $30,000! Another pipe dream shot all to heck!

 

The facts are the facts and I know no one likes them. But it has come down to this….the last two days you have experienced with this blog will be permanent. We have to come up with some donations to be able to stay on the net. We are a legitimate non-profit organization. Everyone seems to enjoy the message we are spreading. We just sincerely need some help now. Have you ever been in a situation were you could use a little helping hand? That is where we are right now, we need a little helping hand. If not, we will be off the internet.

 

There is a PayPal button in the upper right-hand corner. We also have a donate page with our fiscal address on it. You don’t have to donate huge amounts, every nickel, dime, penny counts right now. We are searching everywhere we can for just change. I think so far we have collected $2.01 and a fuzz ball, lol! If you want to see us stay on the net, if you like the daily information we provide you with, then please give what you can.

 

May the Goddess Bless You & Keep You,

Lady A

Good Sunday Morning, my dear friends! Have a Look, I’ve been taking pics again!

Good Morning Images, Quotes, Comments, Graphics
Good Sunday morning, dear, dear friends! How are you doing this morning? Me? I got up at 6:00 with wonderful intentions to do yard work. Ha, I took my medicine for my back and when right back to sleep. (For the new ones joining us, I had a three level back fusion.) I looked at the clock and thought, hmm, it can’t be that late. Yeah right, it was 11:00, I said,  “oh, sh*t!” Kiki and I do a lot of yard work together. When it is around lunch time, she doesn’t want to go outside because of the heat. Me neither, lol!

I have been out taking pics again and I wanted to show you what just showed up late yesterday. I got a call from a local vet and he asked if I would take in another critter for him. I asked him what kind and he told me, a beautiful red fox. I couldn’t believe it. It was brought to him with one of his back legs severely damaged. The poor thing, lost most of his foot and the rest of his leg and hip had to have pins. Needless to say, he is in quite a bit of pain. I give him pain shots every 4 hours and he stays sedated. I don’t believe if he didn’t, he could stand the pain. We aren’t sure what happened but the vet told me, some man just dropped him off and left. The man said nothing at all. So that led me to believe the man knew exactly what had happened. The vet said more than likely the poor thing had got caught in a trap. It wasn’t the intended victim, the man felt guilty about killing such a lovely creature and brought him to the vet. Now the question is, when the fox is out of the severe pain will he be able to function as he should. If not, he will have to have a home with a person. I never considered having a fox but if we bond during his recovery, then he will stay with me. Right now, he is very leery of humans and who can blame him. But here is his beautiful face.

This was taken while he was still under the influence of the sedatives. He had woke up just a minute and I had the camera in my back pocket. I snapped it very quickly. Then he went back to sleep. He is in a fairly good side inclosure. If he decides he wants to try to get up and walk and move, he can. I don’t believe in keeping animals in little crates or cages. All of the places I have for the animals to stay are quite large. It gives them a little freedom but they are still enclosed and safe. I might add they are also well protected and guarded.

The food bill I incur every month is huge, not to mention anything unexpected that might come up. I also always give the vets money for their supplies they use. I have received several donations towards these expenses. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate them too. No amount is too small. It all adds up and it is put to good use. You can see for yourself who and what benefits from the donations, the animals. Then on top of the bill for the upkeep and care of the animals, I also have a server that I have to pay each month also. So my funds get stretched to the max, to say the least. I want you to know that I appreciate ever donation that I get. If you would like to help keep the work I am doing with the animals going by making a donation. There is a PayPal button to the side here.

Remember no amount is too small, it all adds up. And most of all it is greatly appreciated. Thank you my friends, from the bottom of my heart. Because I truly love doing what I do.

Wishing You & Yours A Very Blessed & Happy Monday!

Happy & Blessed Monday to all! I hope you are having a fantastic day. It is beautiful here. You know everything for the WOTC has been going great until just a few days ago. We finally located our building we are going to use as our office. Being a non-profit organization, we were able to secure the building at a very reasonable amount. Over the weekend, we moved our last computer equipment into our new building. Today, we were all sit up and ready to roll but it was a little hot in here. We decided to turn the air unit on to cool the place down. Well the a/c unit is history. We have had an electrician out here and it totally needs to be replaced. After purchasing our new server, the new building, we are flat ass busted. We have no money in the budget for a new unit let alone get the old fixed.

Perhaps you do not realize what all the WOTC does. We are not only an online community but we also provide services offline. We are a community resource in real life for our area Pagans. We contribute funds, assistances and any other ways we can help in natural disasters. We want to open a food pantry also for our local in need Pagan brother and sisters. You see, we are much more than just a spot on the net. We are a very real life Pagan activist organization.

We are strapped for money. Too continue our work on the net, as well as off the net, we need your help. We need to rebuild our funds not only to fix the a/c unit but to also continue our community work in our area.

We ask that you search your heart and please consider helping us. We do for so many, now we need your help.

It doesn’t have to be a huge amount, every dollar counts, even nickels, dimes and pennies. Please we are asking for your assistance in this matter.  In case, you loss this post, our donation button will be back up in the sidebar.

Thank you in advance for your help,

Lady Abyss

Today’s Affirmation for Saturday, March 3rd

I will choose my path wisely, from all the options available. I will follow my path unwaveringly.

 

Today’s Thought for Saturday, March 3rd

Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the ancient ones; seek what they sought.

Basho (1644-94)

 

Today’s Meditation for Saturday, March 3rd

True North

When we are finding our way, it helps to know the nature of the experience we are seeking – our true north or spiritual purpose. Thinking that our purpose is in a particular goal, such as a certain relationship or job, we may feel lost when that option is thwarted. However, when we realize that what we are seeking is a profound experience, such as deep connection or creative fulfilment, rather than something predefined, we can see alternative ways to live out our purpose. Meditating on the North star can help to clarify the experiences we are seeking. As you gaze at the star, ask “What fulfilment am I looking for?” and let the answers come to you.
