OH! What a Beautiful Morning…


I know my blog has been a bit of a downer lately…


I woke to the most magnificent day today

and remembered a cornfield I told my dear friend,

Natalie, from Sacred Touches,

I wanted to visit.  The link is to her

blog post that reminded me.


Oh, there she is….

The star of the show!


“The corn is as high as an elephant’s eye,

An’ it looks like it climbin’ clear up to the sky.”

(I can remember “The Momma”

singing that to me when

I was a child!)


“Oh what a beautiful morning,

Oh what a beautiful day,

I’ve got a wonderful feeling,

Everything’s going my way.”

Stacked neatly in rows,

just how I would like my life to be,

but alas, sometimes it is not.


Yes, sometimes you have to

navigate some weeds

to get to the fruit (or vegetable)

of your labors.


And sometimes,

you can even make art

out of the weeds!


And sometimes,

you just have to lay down

and let it go.





Thanks dear friends for sticking with me through the rough patch ๐Ÿ™‚

My energy is great…I feel fabulous….and we SHOULD have hot water tomorrow!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Good morning is not just a word, its an action and a belief to live the entire day well. Morning is the time when you set the tone for the rest of the day. Set it right!


    1. Hey Kirt…I hate to waste water when so many suffer from draught….but I really want to take a 45 minute shower tomorrow!! And by the way…my intention is THAT IT WILL BE FIXED TOMORROW! The other things in my life will take a little longer ๐Ÿ™‚ Glad you liked the corn field…it was stunningly beautiful! โค


      1. Hi there Lorrie! You’re welcome and thank you. I am full of love and working very hard on the ‘peace’ part! A work in progress I guess you could say! Much love and blessings to you dear lady! โค


  2. I’m happy for you Lorrie. This is a fun and wise post, reminding us to keep reaching for the sky like a cornstalk and don’t worry too much about the weeds. And if all else fails, take a break! XD I’m delighted your energy is flowing up! Mine next please. ๐Ÿ™‚


    1. Ahhhh! Sending as much love and positive energy that I can dear Brad! I love how you deciphered my post ๐Ÿ™‚ It is a truly beautiful day…a gift! I have been a little low and this has recharged me (amongst other things!) Much love to you!! โค

  3. In a shiny little surrey with a fringe on the top!

    Such a beautiful sky filled with limitless possibilities! How beautiful and so filled with energy, love and happiness.
    Thanks for sharing!


  4. Oh what a great song, and a beautiful post ๐Ÿ™‚ my mom used to wake us up in the mornings singing that one! Glad things are looking up and that your hot water is being fixed soon! Blessings, my friend!!


  5. Your inspired mood has successfully tumbled out into your blog post sweet Lorrie. I love the analogy between corn rows and life…so true that we (I!) seek that kind of organization and symmetry yet rarely find it. Life is meant to weave and bob like the weeds isn’t it? Loved the post!


    1. Hey Lisa! Bobbing and weaving …oh my! ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes…you are correct …I must resign my need for symmetry I suppose. What if I frame it in the word Balance ๐Ÿ™‚ yeah…good try! I know …i need to “roll with it!” Thank you and glad my inspiration showed ๐Ÿ™‚


    1. Your post so got to me today…just as your words do here! Yes, a good step back…or how about a “fly over” and we can see it all! Much love and many blessings to you!! โค


  6. This was AWESOME Lorrie! First of all, there were so many different stories all in one —- Beautiful pictures and memories of corn fields, life and the many directions and forms it can take, knowing when to let go and let God … your mom, and the song you had me singing right along with you. This was wonderful! โค Kimberly


    1. Hi Kimberly. ..Thank you so much!! You really got all my nuances. The day was so lovely. ..I took probably 50 photos…had no idea what I would write…and it all just came together!!! Kind of like life!!! โค


  7. Accepting the waves of thought that we encounter is so important. I do know people that are “perpetually perfect and sunny” but they have such holes in their lives. Their image becomes a false sense of reality to hide unworthiness. Embrace imperfection, girlfriend!


    1. “Oh, I’ve got me some warts!” Hehe ๐Ÿ™‚
      I love what you said…and I believe it too! It’s so amazing for me…because it really feels like a new level of understanding now after I go through a bad patch. I really am very grateful for everything in my life…I have such faith that I am walking on the perfect path for me ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you are walking in love and peace!! โค


  8. How sweet of you to dedicate this post to me, missy. And I loved it!! I’m so glad to see that your spirits were lifted today. Who knew that corn would be the day’s catalyst for finding joy! God is soooooo good!!! Love and hugs and blessings, Natalie ๐Ÿ™‚


    1. No truer words were ever spoken!! Yes, corn was my catalyst for joy (prompted by the love and compassion of you and other wonderful people!) So, I thank you!!! Much love…many blessings…Blessitude!!


    1. Hello my dearest Magnificent Frรฉdรฉric!! The Momma loved to sing that song…I think I will call her and sing it to her today!! Thank you!! You are such a dear friend…I send you the energy I received from that big beautiful blue sky yesterday…and I send you much love!! โค ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hi Brenda! Yesterday was incredible….but today I am off the charts!! The beautiful thing about a low is when the energy changes…watch out!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks so much for stopping by!
