1158. Memory is the treasury and guardian of all things. ~Marcus Tullius Cicero

…I swear I will not dishonor
my soul with hatred,
but offer myself humbly
as a guardian of nature,
as a healer of misery,
as a messenger of wonder,
as an architect of peace…
~Diane Ackerman

Boredom, anger, sadness, or fear
are not “yours,” not personal.
They are conditions of the human mind.
They come and go.
Nothing that comes and goes is you.
~Eckhart Tolle

Every morning, every moment,
with every breath, breathe in forgiveness,
breathe in the Holy Spirit, breathe in life,
and breathe out gratefulness.
Let the love and light of God soak
into your spirit and flood your heart.
You are loved.

For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways… ~Excerpt from Psalm 91:11  ✝

  1. I always will believe in angels on Earth and in Heaven, Natalie. Sometimes they are right beside us on our path in life, sending waves of encouragement, hope and a sense of peace. I feel them in their love and warmth. Thanks for this one, dear! ❤ ❤

  2. I love the Guardians picture. I don’t see any credits for the picture, just that the quote is by Diane Ackerman. Is there more information for the picture only? Thanks!

    • I’m so sorry. I’ve tried enlarging as much as I can the image and can see that at the very bottom there is a line with some words that might contain the answer to your question.But it is very faint and there is no way I could ever make it out. I indicated that I had found on on the internet but again it has been so long I have no clue where that might have been. I wish I could have been more helpful in your quest. Blessings, Natalie


      • The only thing on the bottom of the picture is Diane’s quote. There is no other indication of where the picture came from. I have also contacted the person who put up the picture with Diane’s quote but have gotten no answer there either. Thanks for the time anyway.

      • I’m the one who put the picture up. It was on my blog. And it’s on the image itself; if you enlarge it and look very closely, there’s a blue on blue and tiny line of text on the bottom edge of the image.


      • Well, after doing an image search I found out that it is the cover picture on the book “Five Books of Miriam”, by Ellen Frankel. It is comprised of stories for women about the Torah. FYI. I am trying to contact Ms. Frankel and also the artist , Ann Altman, for the permissions I seek. Thanks!

      • That’s so cool! How did you do that image research. I tried a little but to no avail. I was pretty sure that it was connected biblically and in the back of my mind I thought I had seen it used as a Christmas card. I’m so glad you found out all that and hope you get the permissions you seek. Please let me know if you do. Are you a blogger or a writer or artist who is wanting to use it for some kind of publication? Blessings, Natalie 🙂


  3. I am interested in the credits for the picture on Guardians. I see the quote is by Diane Ackerman. I am searching for the owner of the picture. Please let me know. Thanks.
