Mondays with Mary - the wonder of the moment

In stillness, I discover the wonder
of my joyous heart.

A single moment truly lived is the same as
living a thousand lifetimes.

Every experience in my life has
shaped me to be where I am
at this very moment

I am exactly who I am supposed to be

Mondays with Mary
linking up with Rebecca of Recuerda mi Corazon
every Monday

On Saturday the 11th I celebrated my birthday
with a small intimate group of friends and family

We gathered at 5 am at the new Mary shrine
in my garden
and waited for sunrise in silence
after which I had a celebratory blessing ceremony
followed by a sumptous breakfast!

We did all the flowers and baking ourselves!!

Have a wonderful week!!


  1. Happy Birthday Hettienne Your new Mary is delightful.

  2. OMG!!!!
    How, Mary, flowers, cakes! Sunshine and friends!
    I believe you found the portal to heaven!
    I love your words here too...
    and Happy Happy Birthday my Friend!
    (Deb told me she noticed it on FB, but then I didn't manage
    to remark there...I am the WORST FB friend!)

  3. Would love to have been there for all of this beauty and celebrations, your words take me back to my time in Capetown, I know how early mornings feel there at this time of year! Exhilarating! Happy Belated Birthday. x
