TIME OF PEACE

Saturday, February 25, 2012

AS I SIT HERE IN A WONDERFULLY SUNNY ROOM, I THINK LOVELY THOUGHTS OF THE SUMMER OF 1961. I WAS 14 AND BELONGED TO A YOUTH GROUP. THAT SUMMER OUR GROUP ATTENDED A ONE-WEEK SUMMER SLEEP-AWAY CAMP IN WISCONSIN. WE HAD A NIGHTLY VESPER SERVICE OUTSIDE AT DUSK AND I JUST REMEMBER THE PEACE AND JOY I FELT. TODAY, I STARTED TO "BEAT MYSELF UP" OVER NOT EXERCISING AND I DECIDED INSTEAD TO THINK ABOUT MY HIGHER POWER AND HOW, IN MANY WAYS, I AM SO LUCKY.
SOMETIMES, I JUST HAVE TO TAKE A MENTAL BREAK FROM THE NEGATIVITY I FALL INTO AND TRY TO REMEMBER TIMES OF JOY IN MY LIFE. I AM BLESSED IN MANY WAYS. I HAVE A WONDERFUL PARTNER, BOB AND A WONDERFUL 30-YEAR-OLD SON, BILL. I HAVE PROMISED THIS AFTERNOON TO SAY A PRAYER FOR ALL THAT I HAVE BEEN GIVEN. MAY YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT DAY!
