  1. Happy & sweet second Sunday of Advent πŸŽ… πŸ’• 😘 πŸŽ…πŸ’• 😘
    Edward Hays, A Pilgrim’s Almanac, p. 196
    “Advent is the perfect time to clear and prepare the Way. Advent is a winter training camp for those who desire peace. By reflection and prayer, by reading and meditation, we can make our hearts a place where a blessing of peace would desire to abide and where the birth of the Prince of Peace might take place.”
    The world is not as loving, not as whole, as we know it can and should be. But the coming of Christ and his presence among us,as one of us, give us reason to live in hope: that light will shatter the darkness, that we can be liberated from our fears and prejudices, that we are never alone or abandoned. May this Advent season be a time for bringing hope, transformation and fulfillment into the advent of our lives.

      1. Hi, Lydka (& MomπŸ’•), I watched the ZDF video here, but I wasn’t sure what they were saying on the overlapping bar (something about cookies, etc.), so I took it to mean a warning that if I tapped “okay”, I would get a bunch of unwanted stuff in my computer from various sources, so it wouldn’t let me watch just the IL Volo part – way at the end of the show, as you informed us all. In order to see IL Volo, I had watch the entire show (in German!) πŸ˜‚ It was actually good, though and interesting! Some nice musical performances (and cute guys!). I enjoy listening to people speaking foreign languages, actually and trying to figure out what they are saying by focusing on body-language, tones of voice, inflections, etc. We all truly are ‘One’, regardless of where we live in the world! So, that’s also fun for me in a mystical way, even though I don’t know what the heck they are saying, for the most part. πŸ˜† (I ‘know’ you’d agree, Lydka!). The host of the show sure is an extrovert and she kept it up for a long time! (Hour & 13 minutes). Heck, I eventually fell asleep when she was conversing with that guy on the balcony, but woke up just in time for.. Il Volo ! They sounded (and looked) beautiful in that pretty setting with the winter’s day light effect. (I love that type of winter day; miss it !). They may have been waiting a long time just to sing one song, but we all know what troupers – and ‘troopers’ – they are, bless their hearts. When the video finished, shortly after Il Volo sang, would you believe that that over-lapping barrier – bar went away and only then could I watch JUST the Il Volo section at the end! By then, it was very late ‘of the clock’ and I was too darned tired! it was, though, worth waiting over an hour for Il Volo. Thanks so much, Lydka. I actually remember a lot of that show in an enjoyable way. God love ya for puttin’ up with me ! A ‘cornucopia’ of blessings to you and Mama Lydka, (Always ! ). πŸ’– πŸŽπŸ•πŸ€πŸŒΏ

  2. Laura, at school I learned German, but it was a second foreign language (first was English), so teachers took it “in free mode” , so we did not learn a lot. πŸ™‚ I think I forgot everything, I am not in contact with this language for several years. Personally I do not like this language , is rough , anti-romantic and tuneless for me. I didn’t watch the whole program, Il Volo performance was wonderful.. (You can move a video on the place you want and watch it from the minute that you want,below in the video you can see such a line and you move the arrow,positioned exactly on the line, that shows you minute, time, of program.) Today was really nice day, because with mom we did good deed. πŸ™‚ Outside it’s dark, it started to snow, do not know exactly where you live in Florida, is large, where will I send the snow to you, when will last till morning ? πŸ˜€ I reveal something, mom would like to send you a Christmas postcard, if it would be possible. πŸ™‚ Thanks that you thought on us ! One of the joys in life is waking up each day with thoughts that somewhere, someone cares enough to send a warm greeting! Enjoy the day! You are no accident. God making you and sending you on earth was a part of a very beautiful plan. May He continue to shower your life with abundant blessings. May He always keep you in his tender and loving care. 🌟 πŸ’– πŸ’ž 😘 🌹 ❀ Honest greetings with hugs from us !

  3. Hi, Lydka & Mom!, Thank You for your kind & funny messages here! (I need to have reasons to laugh more and you just gave me some more today!). That ‘barrier’ bar I wrote about prevented me from accessing that video-control line and arrow which is why I forced myself to watch the whole show!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ – until it was all over! (growl…) πŸ˜† At this time, Lydka and Mom, I live in “Stuart” (on the southeastern coast) among the Cabbage Palms, thorny, natural plant-life, (adorable) Lizards of several varieties and occasional Hurricanes in the (apparently arguably) ‘hot-house’ that lots of delusional (πŸ˜†) people here call “Paradise” – (also known as “Florida”) – despite it being (understandably) rather hostile to Humans and Domesticated Animals ( i. e. “Bufo Marinus” – also known as “Cane Toads” – who can literally kill a dog or cat in MINUTES if they unfortunately just SNIFF the toad, never mind LICK it ONCE and which can be everywhere in Fl. nowadays, especially if Fl. doesn’t happen to get it’s normal, but now occasional, fairly ‘cold’ or mildly cool Winters and enduring the rather ‘difficult’ late Springs and (all) Summers – due to high temperatures and humidity – basically every single day and night.) So, you are WELCOMED to catapult that nice, icy Snowball all the way from your home to mine !! πŸ˜„ A Christmas postcard from your MomπŸ’— would be the nicest thing I could receive for Christmastime and I would keep it as a special treasure. I Thank You ! – whether you could do that or not ! (How do you all contact each other here ‘off-site’ without E-mail ? Except for trying to stay in touch here on this special website, ( due to an abnormally – and involuntarily – hectic daily life – for awhile now, but ‘counting down’, albeit slowly), I’ve been having a bit of a hard time staying in touch with people which is distressing. I think that you are very perceptive, Lydka and probably empathic as well. I sincerely thank you and your Mom for your kind, heartfelt thoughts that you have sent me here, such as you did this evening. Thank You, both, for your sweet hugs and please receive mine, too. Un Grande Baccio (x’s 2). πŸ’žπŸ’›β„οΈπŸŒ· ( I will check out the other place that you directed me to see very soon). 🐼 This is supposed to be a Panda Bear; it stands for Ignazio 😊, although I love ’em all. (My emojis are woefully limited)

    1. I 😎 want to also tell you, Lydka and Mom, that it does not surprise me that YOU performed “a good deed” today! πŸ˜‡πŸ‘Ό

      1. I looked on photos of your town, some photos are nice and as from the catalog of the travel agency, idyllically acting…my mom likes smaller and small towns, but for her too much water around.. πŸ˜€

    2. Laura, for me Florida sounds little bit “exotic” I think I would not want to live there. If you want to contact someone , so ask Marie, she as owner of site, knows emails of all here, but with it has to agree also person, from whom you want email. I love pandas ! πŸ™‚ Sending warm hugs ! Have a stunning day ! ❀ 😘 🌹 ❀ πŸ’– πŸ’– πŸ’ž

  4. Hi, Lydka, Will send E-mail a.s.a.p. 🐢 Yes, i guess Fl. is an exotic type of place, nature-wise. If you just google ‘Stuart, Florida’, you probably would see a small, color picture of a fountain with a big Sailfish sculpture in the center of it. If you click on that little picture, I believe that you would get a lot of pictures of the area. It definitely does have a lot of water in and around it, including being a short distance from the ocean and beaches. There are American Alligators here, too, even sometimes found on golf courses that have a pond. I once stopped on my bike to check out an Alligator sunning himself on some stones by the river, about 6 – feet from me. He was found, resting, under a neighbor’s car parked in their driveway the next morning.πŸ˜°πŸ˜… Never a dull moment. Here it was 90 degrees for about 3 hours today. First time I remember it being so warm in December in my 19 years here. Have to use the A/C, though not constantly. Just had a thunderstorm; uncommon in Dec.! If it were not for electricity and A/C, Florida would still be the beautiful, unspoiled wilderness it was intended to be and really should be. I never desired to live here, but ‘Fate’ had other ideas for me. I am planning on re-locating, but not sure if it will be back to northern California or in the Northeast (seaboard region) where I grew up. Mom Lydka, there are many small towns in Fl., too, but, yes, waters abound here. Warm (literally & figuratively!) hugs to you both, too and wishing you all that is very good. (Where is the closest place to you where Il Volo gave a concert last year? Just wondering where you would get to see them perform in person). 😘β™₯️β™₯️🐼🐠🐊

    1. Laura, I saw fountain, interesting, and your experience with alligators sounds dangerously, great respect for the large animals. The nearest place for me, where boys had concert ,was Vienna, in Austria. But for me is too expensive go to a concert abroad. Now it’s impossible, and once I want to go with mom and my mom doesn’t like travelling with airplanes…Only dream for me is their concert now. Greeting and hugs ! πŸ™‚

  5. I’m sorry, Lydka, that it isn’t possible right now. I will pray that sooner than later you will be able to take a train to see them?! i left you & Kelly a quick comment on your newest post, but it went up twice in a row. Someone, maybe, can delete one of ’em ?. πŸ™‚ (I suddenly hurt my back last evening & can barely stay on computer now. Lydka, I don’t access my personal E-mail via this computer, so it might be just a little while until I can send my mailing info. to you & your Mom, but I will !).:)

    1. Laura, take care of yourself, pain in back is very unpleasant (archangel Raphael is God’s healer , ask for his emerald healing light ). Wishing you good health and many energy and vitality ! About the concert. it will take several years to get there, is not a matter of the near future. But thanks for your nice words, as always. πŸ™‚ We will look forward to your message. Hugs and kisses from us ! <3 🎢 🏼😘

  6. Lydka, Mom Lydka, I shouldn’t be on here yet, due to back strain, but don’t want to get too far behind. Yes – Raphael & emerald green light ! (Once again, we are in sinc !) Thank You for your kind supportiveness, Lydka & Mom; very appreciated. I shot off a quick E-mail to you (via a friend). It will arrive tonight or tomorrow, I think. I’m sorry that there’s only the info. with no note, as just wanted to get it to you a.s.a.p. I really like your little ‘saying’ here; It’s touching & worth remembering. Keep warm & wishing you a blessed day, too. xoxo πŸ˜˜πŸ’–πŸ©πŸŽ΅

    1. Laura,hope that you are feeling better and back is ok. I haven’t even got a message from you on email. Virtual snowball has traveled to you , in my town today was snowing and outside is white blanket πŸ˜€ . But I’m afraid the snowball melts before comes to Florida. πŸ™‚ Have wonderful day with a lot of God’s blessing and joy in the heart !πŸ’™ πŸŽ„ β­πŸ’« ❄️ πŸŽ…πŸ»

      1. Thank you, Lydka. I am sorry that the email didn’t get to you. I’ll re-send it to you soon ! Thanks for your hopes re/ my back, too. I re-injured it because I sat at the computer a bit long last night, but it it is getting better compared to yesterday. I just need to not stay on here too long, as I’m now behind in tasks, etc., too. Thanks also for the virtual snowball!! πŸ˜‚ I miss the blanket of snow! It temporarily transforms our world, you know? Covers all the ‘flaws’! 😊 May you have a really good day and with God’s blessings! Lydka and Mom Lydka ! πŸ’–β„οΈ β˜•οΈπŸ“–πŸ‡πŸŒ²πŸŽ…πŸ½

      2. Laura, unfortunately, time is running out , it seems, that I will not be able to send a postcard, I haven’t message from you. Never mind ! Maybe next time it comes out. πŸ™‚ I wish you a wonderful day and a pleasant week, God’s blessing, love, happiness, good health and fulfillment of dreams ! Sincere greetings and hugs from us ! ❄️ πŸŽ„ πŸ’–

    2. Laura, hope that you are feeling good. I did not receive an email from you and next week I must send postcard,if I want to come to you before Christmas. I regret, if there were any complications with sending for you. I wish you beautiful blessed weekend with a lot of love, light, joy and prosperity ! πŸŽ„ πŸ˜™ πŸ’– ❄️ πŸ’™ Hugs and kiss !

      1. Hello, Lydka! I am so sorry that the email didn’t arrive. I found the address that you posted further back. I was careful in copying it, so I don’t understand what happened. Meanwhile, I want to thank you and your Mom again for even thinking of sending a Christmas card to me ! I’ll still try to send you the email again tomorrow, I expect and regardless, just to try to see if it arrives ! I’ll check here in a couple of days to find out, okay? God Bless you and your Mom and I wish for your (plural) dreams to come true, too! You are both very kind and caring. I’m grateful for your lovely prayers and good wishes. Please know I think about you both, often. (My back is almost all normal again!). I need to catch up on all the interesting things I couldn’t yet see here, like the PBS interviews and the other recent posts; yikes! Hugs & double kisses ! πŸ˜˜β€οΈβ€οΈπŸŽ„πŸŽ πŸŽ€

      1. Lydka and Mom Lydka, Thank you !!! This is a beautiful card !!! I just thought I’d try this space again today, as I had been checking here several times to see if you had replied again, I almost gave up, but something prompted me to check just now! I had used the address that I found in that past post as you directed. I can’t understand why it never got to you. I tried again a couple days ago. Please feel free to ask Marie for my email address, even though I can’t use email often right now. I will reply to you, though; I promise. Perhaps the email I used wasn’t the right one – – Maybe I looked in the wrong place?! Your lovely card has candles with flickering flames! I love the colors and the night – time starry sky! I can’t adequately express what it means to me, but please know that I am truly grateful. God bless you both. Wishing you a wonderful Christmas and new year with peace and miracles. πŸ’ž ( Marie, bless her, had emailed your darling card to me with the cheerful Sun and message, so Thank You for that, also!! I have it where I can see it every day.) πŸ˜˜πŸ’› β˜€οΈπŸŒŸ πŸŽ€πŸ’šβ€οΈπŸŽ„πŸŽΌπŸŽ…πŸ½

      1. Quickly, now, I left you a couple messages: On Marie’s “NYC 2011” and on Mary’s “Fulfillment” posts! I’ve gotten behind ! I need to catch up with it all ! 😟

      2. I got your email, Lydka; do you know yet that I replied via email again to your email? Haven’t received your actual card via Post Office as yet, but will keep checking. (Thank You)!

    3. Laura, πŸ™ sorry ,I did not send you postcard , I have not your address, because I did not receive email from you, I have problem with emails from abroad, please send email to Marie and she will resend it to me.

      1. Lydka, Will do ! I’m sorry that there’s a problem for you receiving such distant emails. It’s my hope that Marie has better luck than I getting my email to you. Will look here on this post each day to see if you were able to (finally!) receive it. I’m going to try to send the request to Marie on Sunday morning, OK? Big hugs! Again, so sorry this has been difficult, but your suggestion is a good one and I don’t think Marie would mind doing us the favor.😊 πŸ€πŸŒΎ πŸ’Œ

    4. Laura, when I receive email,then I will give you the answer. πŸ™‚ Thank you for your patience and understanding. Have a wonderful and blessed weekend ! ❀ πŸ’πŸ€ 🌹🌹🌹🌹 😘

    5. Laura,
      Marie sent me your email, tomorrow we will go to post office ! πŸ™‚ Travelling of mail is about 5 to 11 days. (One note,when you receive it, look inside greeting, there will be surprise for you. πŸ˜‰ )
      Hope, you have wonderful days with lots of blessings ! πŸ€ 🌟 πŸ’š 😘

      1. Lydka, “Gotcha!” πŸ™‚ Thank You to Marie and to you and Mom – Lydka for going through this email ordeal for me! πŸ˜… Lots of Blessings to all of you, too. ( Will let you know “A.S.A.P.” when your mailing has arrived and will look inside as you directed).πŸ˜˜πŸ’ŸπŸ’ŒπŸŒβœˆοΈπŸŒŽ

    6. Dear Laura,
      I wish you all the best in your life, fulfillment of all your desires and dreams, good health and a lot of love, blessings and happiness. I answered (email) you in February, but with no response from you, I do not want to bother you and if communication does not work, so is useless to write. Goodbye !
