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

Never underestimate the power of your presence nor your ability to comfort and encourage. ~Fr Leo

Today I am grateful...
  • that although we had a little rain overnight and it's still August this morning there is definitely a coolness in the air that hasn't been around for months
  • to exchange hitting bottom for a new life is a sweet deal
  • that the street closest to me that leads out of the neighborhood is almost totally refurbished
  • to not be so closed up, walled off, from the rest of humanity as I used to be
  • for that moment of silence when the air conditioner kicks off, the refrigerator isn't running and the world holds onto the quiet

What will You do for me if I give You my heart's blossoming faith?

"My child, I shall take away your mind's brooding doubts." ~Sri Chinmoy

What's wrong with your refrigerator? When it runs, where does it go? Down that refurbished street? Whose bottom did you hit?

In the recovery capital of the world...we call it road rehabilitation! The exchange for the bottom is so true...sweet! Happy Friday!

I agree that there is a different feel to things lately. The light is different too. Fall is coming.
