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

He that gives should never remember, he that receives should never forget. ~Talmud
.
Today I am grateful...
  • that I took yesterday off from the world. I spent it quietly, painting, reading, napping and I didn't miss society at all.
  • that I can shop for shirts, pants and shoes without leaving home, in my underwear and check out with the push of a button
  • for information that lets me be wary of delusional behavior--that may sound cryptic, and it is!
  • that I would love to step out my front door into a crisp, autumn day...but that isn't likely today. It will happen if I am patient, though.

With every prayer and every thought of love, we release the light that will cast out darkness. One light alone seems small and weak--no one's light is ever alone, for all our lights are part of God. ~Marianne Williamson

You were peopled out for a day.
Welcome back.

Now that you're sober, I never see you out shopping in your underwear.

Some people like to serve God, but only as advisors.

Today (as most Mondays) is a day off from my world.

Blessings and aloha...
