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

To speak ill of others is a dishonest way of praising ourselves. ~Will Durant
.
Today I am grateful...
  • to have no demands today, but many choices
  • that if I keep my perspective healthy today I will have a better experience
  • that today is right on time, another piece of the puzzle
  • that most early mornings, like this one, I feel totally at peace
  • that the journey is life long in its length -- the destination just always out of reach

My understanding of God is within the context of freedom. God is involved in His world but He allows it an autonomy. We are not puppets on a string. When things begin to go wrong, God does not interfere and make changes (usually) without our cooperation. God reveals the extent of His love by allowing us a creative responsibility in our lives. ~Fr Leo

The journey is lifelong. I agree. Thanks for reminding me of that and that I'll not reach the destination. It's okay though.

I like the gossip quote, I seem to be hearing this message a lot these days. I am becoming aware of how I am passively contributing to serenity busters.

Gossip is a soul killer.
