Fall in love

The sacred is in the ordinary, that is to be found in one’s daily life, in one’s neighbors, friends, and family, in one’s backyard. AMaslow

Some things just aren't worth getting good at...

... is there something you need to give up in order to focus more energy into the present?

The greatest freedom in this kingdom is from the tyranny of your own desires, agendas and plans. 

 The second greatest freedom is from the tyranny of other people’s opinions about you. (WJacobsen)

Don't answer.

Some questions aren't meant to be answered.

Choose to live with some mystery.

P - R - I - D - E

There is one vice of which no person in the world is free; which every one in the world loathes when he sees it in someone else; and of which hardly anyone ever imagines that they are guilty themselves. 

There is no fault which makes a person more unpopular, and no fault which we are more unconscious of in ourselves. And the more we have it ourselves, the more we dislike it in others. I pointed out a moment ago that the more pride one had, the more one disliked pride in others. 

It is because I wanted to be the big noise at the party that I am so annoyed at someone else being the big noise. The point is that each person's pride is in competition with every one else's pride. CSLewis

Make loneliness your friend.

Don't be afraid to be yourself or to stand against the crowd.

Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.

There is no such thing as a bad day - just bad moments that we choose to take with us all day long.

Do your giving while you're living.

Discover generosity before you're gone.

Go out on a limb & try it -

I will this day try to live a simple, sincere, and serene life;

Repelling promptly every thought of discontent, anxiety, discouragement, impurity, and self-seeking;

Cultivating cheerfulness, magnanimity, charity, and the habit of holy silence;

Exercising economy in expenditure, carefulness in conversation, diligence in appointed service, fidelity to every trust, and a childlike trust in God.

And as I cannot in my own strength attain this measure of wisdom and power,

I make humble and firm resolve to seek all these things from my heavenly Father.

You are the light of the world

Why burn poor & lonely?

A city on a hill cannot be hidden

Neither do people light a lamp & put it under a bowl

Instead they put it on its stand, & it gives light to everyone in the house

In the same way let your light shine before all people

That they may see your good deeds & praise our Father in heaven

Unforgiveness is like plaque in your arteries.

Love can’t flow through.

Your heart eventually stops.

Choose life.

No shame on you.

You can’t raise children who have more shame resilience than you do. Because even if you don’t shame them, and even if you are actively trying to raise them feeling good about who they are, they’re never going to treat themselves better than you treat yourself. (B Brown)

Make each day a thankful celebration of your belovedness.

1 Jn 3
What marvelous love the Father has extended to us! Just look at it—we’re called children of God! That’s who we really are. But that’s also why the world doesn’t recognize us or take us seriously, because it has no idea who he is or what he’s up to.

But friends, that’s exactly who we are: children of God. And that’s only the beginning. Who knows how we’ll end up! What we know is that when Christ is openly revealed, we’ll see him—and in seeing him, become like him. All of us who look forward to his Coming stay ready, with the glistening purity of Jesus’ life as a model for our own.

Do you find yourself regularly disappointed?

Maybe your expectations are a tad high?!

What's on your 'To Do' list?

This is the 'To Do' list of Johnny Cash.

One of my friends commented, 'When you have to remind yourself to pee you better start worrying...'

Are you still looking for Mr. Right?

Destructive to marriage is the self-fulfillment ethic that assumes marriage and the family are primarily institutions of personal fulfillment, necessary for us to become "whole" and happy. The assumption is that there is someone just right for us to marry and that if we look closely enough we will find the right person. This moral assumption overlooks a crucial aspect to marriage. It fails to appreciate the fact that we always marry the wrong person.

We never know whom we marry; we just think we do. Or even if we first marry the right person, just give it a while and he or she will change. For marriage, being [the enormous thing it is] means we are not the same person after we have entered it. The primary challenge of marriage is learning how to love and care for the stranger to whom you find yourself married. (Stanley Hauerwas)

Happiness means nothing other than having lots of stuff, having more stuff than your parents, and having children who will have even more stuff.

What does happiness mean to you?!

It’s not how much you have that brings happiness; it’s 
how much you appreciate however much or little you
