MOVING FORWARD

A Quote to Keep Us Moving Forward

“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.  Mistakes are acceptable if they’re the result of moving forward.  If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.”  —Walt Disney

FRAGRANT PEACE

A Beautiful Plumeria

GOOD SUNDAY AFFIRMATION

Relax,  O my soul these overwhelming feelings that I may regain confidence and joy.  Love has not dissipated, emptiness is shaken off and the day is fruitful.  O my soul be faithful to daily things.  Let me live with fiery intensity.

“Seek good and not evil, that you may live.  Hate evil and love good, and let justice prevail at the gate.”  —The Prophet Amos 5:14-15

 

 

 

NATION’S PICNIC

POINT TO PONDER

“You have to love a nation that celebrates its Independence Day – not with a parade of guns, tanks and soldiers, who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw frisbee, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die of happiness.  You may think you have overeaten, but it is just patriotism.”

–Erma Bombeck

May this 4th of July bring you peace with family and friends

INDEPENDENCE!

Quilt Art by Faith Ringgold

ARTFUL WRITING

This word – Independence – connotes so many variations of good attributes, like self-determination, sovereignty, freedom and liberty, no matter the hardships of the day.

Each day accesses to this gift of ‘independence’ given to all by the love and mercy of God.

May this 4th of July – America’s Independence – represent our freedom to grow in acts of kindness and mutual respect for one another, unified in friendship with God through hard work and prayer for liberty – the pursuit of happiness for everyone.

Go! Grab you ‘independence’ each and every day.

A BENCH MOMENT

OFF THE CUFF Writing

See this bench.  I’ve arranged it especially for you to sit with me and chat.

I know that lately life has been a steep struggle to work and stay healthy.   It’s no fun to be cooped up inside and be afraid to go out.  We are all in this together.  This bench is where God smiles at me, where I can be real with Him.  He is happy that you have joined me today.   Do you feel His love for you, for us?  I’m so glad you came to visit.  Hopefully, you come away refreshed and light.
