“There is something beautiful about a blank canvas, the nothingness of the beginning that is so simple and breathtakingly pure. It’s the paint that changes its meaning and the hand that creates the story. Every piece begins the same, but in the end they are all uniquely different.”
― Piper Payne

" Mirth is the sweet wine of human life. It should be offered sparkling with zestful life unto God." ~Henry Ward Beecher~

I have no bucket list. I prefer to focus on life. I just want to enjoy life every day with those I love. I believe death is not an ending, but a new beginning...more radiant and joyous than anything we may experience here.

..."For death is but a passing phase of Life;
A change of dress, a disrobing;
A birth into the unborn again;
A commencing where we ended;
A starting where we stopped to rest;
A crossroad of Eternity;
A giving up of something, to possess all things.
The end of the unreal, the beginning of the real;
Not cessation, but continuance;
Not exit, but entrance;
Not destruction, but life;
How wise the plan of death!"...
Edwin Liebfreed ~ from "The Song Of The Soul"

Welcome to Marcia's Page...

I hope the New Year 2021 ushers in all things bright, positive, and beautiful...

This is my primary profile / general information page. I have created a secondary page strictly for contest page design. My alter ego is TexasLadee. If you wish to visit me there:

I am a 65 year old woman born and living in Texas. Probably a "for lifer." I am recently widowed after 42 years of marriage. And let's be clear...I am not looking to replace my husband. I have 2 grown sons. The eldest remains unmarried and the younger only recently exchanged vows with his special lady. I have no grandchildren to this point. I live simply, in a small city, with my family nearby. It is a blessing that my sons both work and live here in town. They are a huge comfort to me. I am a college graduate who was employed full-time, but very recently retired. I am a Christian, flag-waving, southern, political conservative. I am friendly. I love to laugh and feel shared laughter is a wonderful part of friendship. Comments are welcomed and appreciated as long as they are well-meaning, kind, and respectful to me and to all others who visit here. I do not mind pics being a bit risque', but I prefer a friendly page with NO VULGARITY, NUDITY OR SEXUALLY EXPLICIT IMAGES. I absolutely hate drama and argument, so DO NOT bring it to my page. Please respect these simple guidelines when visiting. Hope we soon become good friends. God Bless you all. ~ Marcia

I am not looking for new romance, but the characteristics that I find appealing are: a cheerful disposition, a nice smile, a sense of humor, sincerity, kindness, and respect for God, country, and other people. I appreciate a person of intelligence. I am drawn to the eyes and smile first.

I believe I am a mixture of Scottish, German, Czech, and Native American (Cherokee) heritage.

I love the simple pleasures of life. I love mild sunny days, rainy days, starry nights, the beauty of nature and the fascinating and wonderful creatures that share our planet with us.

My favorite smells are rain, vanilla, and green apple.

My favorite flowers are roses (especially lavender or pink) and daisies.

My favorite colors are pink, lavender, and green.

I love dainty, feminine things; soft, comfortable things; rustic, country things; western, southern things; antique, primitive things; and warm, cuddly things.

I am not a fan of big government, constitutional infringements, disrespect of God, flag, or country. I dislike arrogant people who are unkind, disrespectful, or non-trustworthy. Also, people (male or female) who overestimate either their intellect or their sex appeal.

My personal movie favorites are comedies, biographies, light-hearted action/adventure, musicals, family films, and wildlife documentaries. I do not enjoy most horror films, but find some paranormal studies interesting. I do enjoy ghost stories. My t.v. choices run along the same lines.

I mix it up when it comes to reading material. I enjoy biography, humor, spiritual, inspirational, poetry, mystery, romance, selective westerns, and light fiction. I like cookbooks and books about animals.

My musical tastes are as varied as my reading material. I can appreciate selections from most types of music. However, my least favorites are heavy metal, rap, and hip-hop. Songs that glamorize sex, drugs, and violence are very distasteful to me.

My favorite hobbies are reading, blogging, keeping up this web page, working puzzles, and music. I also love nature, wildlife, fishing, and exploring quaint locations and shops. I also like flea markets and thrift shops.

I am not a high maintenance type of woman. I live simply. However, I AM still a female and enjoy the usual female interests such as shopping, recipes, home decor, jewelry, clothes, etc. I am not into expensive frills and not really into trends. I like soft, feminine, conservative, comfortable.

I do like some sports. I have a particular fondness for watching basketball, but watch some football, baseball, skating, gymnastics, swimming/diving and Winter olympic events. I mostly support my Texas and U.S. teams. I am not a fan of wrestling, boxing, or auto racing. I do not like sports that harm or exploit animals.

Sometimes challenges rain down on us and drench us in worry and despair. At times it all might seem too much to handle.
Now during such times your mind has to choose between fight or fight. It is human nature to want freedom from suffering says Buddhist teaching. Kama- the pursuit of pleasure is one of the four goals of life according to Ayurveda. Hellenistic philosophy calls the pursuit of pleasure and avoidance of pain Epicureanism. Whatever name you call it we all want some degree of comfort and peace in our life. During such times when we feel drenched with worries and despair we must hold on to the balloon of hope.
It is this fluffy cushion of hope that can lead us towards cultivating inner silence, faith, intuition that can help us get into the Mindset that can help us overcome all challenges
Charlie Chaplin lived 88 years
He left us 4 statements:
(1) Nothing is forever in this world, not even our problems.
(2) I love walking in the rain because no one can see my tears.
(3) The most lost day in life is the day we don't laugh.
(4) Six best doctors in the world...:
1. The sun
2. Rest
3. Exercise
4. Diet
5. Self-respect
6. Friends
Stick to them at all stages of your life and enjoy a healthy life...
If you see the moon, you will see the beauty of God...
If you see the sun, you will see the power of God...
If you see a mirror, you will see God's best creation. So believe it.
We are all tourists, God is our travel agent who has already identified our routes, bookings and destinations... trust him and enjoy life.
Life is just a journey! Therefore, live today!
Tomorrow may not be
