IF THE ONLY PRAYER YOU SAID IN YOUR LIFE WAS "THANK YOU", THAT WOULD SUFFICE. ~Meister Eckhart

An eye for eye only ends up making the whole world blind. ~Mahatma Gandhi

Today I am grateful...
  • for a peace filled weekend. I remember it all!
  • for the gales of laughter last night while at fellowship with other alkies
  • that we are scheduled for more rain today
  • for gratitude today that I want what I have and have what I want
  • for the knowledge that just because someone has a lot of time in a recovery program does not automatically mean they are healthy. The proof is all around.

Man is a creature whose substance is faith. What his faith is, he is. ~Bhagavad Gita

The secret to being happy is not getting what you want, but wanting what you got. Lots of peacefulness is shining thru here...thru you. Happy Monday!

David, Ghandi was a man. The Bhagavad Gita is a text.

I'm still taken by the piece of art today, is there a credit for it? It's interesting that people's take on it that she was distressed, I just think it's complex.

Scott W said...

Carol, I don't have a credit on it. It was in a folder of stuff I have collected. Sorry.

Mary Christine said...
