August is almost gone...like Shirl...I trust it was a great month for you. I love September, as for me, it's like a whole new year starting. Kids are back to school, new programs starting, my pantry is showing signs of filling up once again with canning, the ground in my gardens are bare and waiting for work to prepare them for new crops, and new books start appearing on shelves. So many new things happening.



A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events and outcomes. It is a catalyst and it sparks extraordinary results.

We've arrived at our last serenity Sunday of August, only one more day before we slip into Sept. I hope August has been a good month for all of you.

For Attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
 For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
 For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
 For beautiful hair, let a child run their fingers through it once a day.
 For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
 People, more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms.
 As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself and the other for helping others.

― Sam Levenson

Have a blessed and serene Sunday!

Hugs,
Shirl

Like your post this morning, thanks Wanda for getting us started this morning. Yesterday, Clenton's 90th birthday party was a great day of celebrating with family and friends, his actual birthday is this Wed.


Birthday, Birthday, Birthday!
Celebrate your day of birth, no matter the circumstances of your birth.
Be thankful and joyful for the gift of life on this divine day.

August 16 Serenity Sunday

As I got up this morning and looked at the counter filled with processed canning jars, my heart is filled with gratefulness at what the Lord has provided for my family. Even though it's my first attempt at canning potatoes and I'm not sure if I did things exactly right, I'm grateful that we will have canned potatoes to supplement our winter meals. All the jars are sealed and will come in very handy.

I Count My Blessings


I count my daily blessings, Lord,
And try to count them all.
But, it's like counting all the stars at night
Or the raindrops, when they fall.

For, my blessings are so many
And my troubles are so few ...
That the good always outweighs the bad;
Due to blessings, sent from You.

So, Father, please forgive me
If I fail to count the ways ...
As you have blessed my life immensely,
Through your love that never strays.

Jul 19 Serenity Sunday

Lord, bless our family
May we be a beautiful garden for you.
Help us to live in harmony, to provide support to each other when needed and at other times space for each of us to grow.
Help us to take the time to receive the warmth of your grace in our lives and to drink from the water of life daily.
Guide us as we live our lives to have the right balance of work, rest and play.
May we be healthy, contented and giving in all that we do.
Create in us an oasis of love and hope that others can rest within and enjoy.

Amen.

Hope your Sunday was serene.

The time of business does not with me differ from the time of prayer, and in the noise and clatter of my kitchen, while several persons are at the same time calling for different things, I possess God in as great tranquility as if I were upon my knees at the blessed sacrament.

Our last serenity Sunday of June, this month is soon to be in the past. Have a blessed and serene Sunday.

Let the first act of every morning be to make the following resolve for the day:

- I shall not fear anyone on Earth.
- I shall fear only God.
- I shall not bear ill will toward anyone.
- I shall not submit to injustice from anyone.
- I shall conquer untruth by truth. And in resisting untruth, I shall put up with all suffering.

Love your post this morning too Shirl.

Precious Father, thank You for allowing us to benefit from the beauty of all that Your hand has created. Thank You for our seas, forests, and skies. Thank You for all the beautiful and fragrant plants, and for the power and wonder of every animal. Thank You for the seasons and the rains that keep our earth reproducing. We will wake the dawn with our song. O Lord, our Lord, Your majestic Name fills the earth! Your glory is higher than the heavens. When we look at the night sky and see the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars you set in place; what are mortals that You should think about them, human beings that You should care for them? The highest heavens and the earth and everything in it all belong to You. We are blessed to be the recipients of all the beauty that surrounds us and testifies of Your awesome glory. We will sing to You as long as we live. We will praise You until our last breath! May all our thoughts be pleasing to You, for we rejoice in You, Father.

Wanda your post was lovely last Sunday.

Wishing all a blessed and serene Sunday!

Promise Yourself

To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel
that there is something in them
To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.

To think only the best, to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past
and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world,
not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you.

― Christian D. Larson, Your Forces and How to Use Them

Most Gracious Heavenly Father,
We thank You for our mothers to whom You have entrusted the care of every precious human life from its very beginning in the womb.

You have given to woman the capacity of participating with You in the creation of new life. Grant that every woman may come to understand the full meaning of that blessing, which gives her an unlimited capacity for selfless love for every child she may be privileged to bear, and for all Your children.

Watch over every mother who is with child, strengthen her faith in Your fatherly care and love for her and for her unborn baby. Give her courage in times of fear or pain, understanding in times of uncertainty and doubt, and hope in times of trouble. Grant her joy in the birth of her child.

To mothers You have given the great privilege and responsibility of being a child's first teacher and spiritual guide. Grant that all mothers may worthily foster the faith of their children, following the example of Mary, Elizabeth, and other holy women who follow Christ. Help mothers to grow daily in knowledge and understanding of Your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and grant them the wisdom to impart this knowledge faithfully to their children, and to all who depend upon them.

Assist all "spiritual mothers", those who, though they may have no children of their own, nevertheless selflessly care for the children of others -- of every age and state in life. Grant that they may know the joy of fulfilling this motherly calling of women, whether in teaching, nursing, religious life, or in other work which recognizes and fosters the true dignity of every human being created in Your image and likeness.

We beseech You to send Your Holy Spirit, the Comforter, to all mothers who sorrow for children that have died, are ill or estranged from their families, or who are in trouble or danger of any kind. Help grieving mothers to rely on Your tender mercy and fatherly love for all your children.

We ask your blessing on all those to whom You have entrusted motherhood. May Your Holy Spirit constantly inspire and strengthen them. May they ever follow the example of Mary, mother of Our Lord, and imitate her fidelity, her humility, and her self-giving love. May all mothers receive Your Grace abundantly in this earthly life, and may they look forward to eternal joy in Your presence in the life to come.

We ask this through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end.
AMEN.

Happy Sunday, everyone! I really like this quote. Change can be scary, but we must embrace it!

Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.
― Lao Tzu

Here we are at our second serenity Sunday and going into the middle of April all ready. May you have a blessed and serene Sunday.


Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.

― Ralph Waldo Emerson

I think this needs to go on my refrigerator.

Good morning on our last Sunday of March. Have a blessed and serene Palm Sunday.

Even as the Earth turns into Spring,
Angling its torso towards the sun,
So like birds our hearts begin to sing,
Touched by time as tides by moonlight run,
Ebbing as faith faces the long night,
Returning with the laughter and the light.

After this Sunday we only have one more left in March, for a long month it seems to have gone by quickly. Have a blessed and serene Sunday.

People have to forgive. We don't have to like them, we don't have to be friends with them, we don't have to send them hearts in text messages, but we have to forgive them, to overlook, to forget. Because if we don't we are tying rocks to our feet, too much for our wings to carry!

I've been rereading Thoreau's Walden, and it is a treasure trove of quotes about serenity. Lovely.

Happy 2nd serenity Sunday of March!

For Equilibrium, a Blessing:
Like the joy of the sea coming home to shore,
May the relief of laughter rinse through your soul.

As the wind loves to call things to dance,
May your gravity by lightened by grace.

Like the dignity of moonlight restoring the earth,
May your thoughts incline with reverence and respect.

As water takes whatever shape it is in,
So free may you be about who you become.

As silence smiles on the other side of what's said,
May your sense of irony bring perspective.

As time remains free of all that it frames,
May your mind stay clear of all it names.

May your prayer of listening deepen enough
to hear in the depths the laughter of god.

― John O'Donohue, To Bless the Space Between Us: A Book of Blessings

May you be blessed with a serene Sunday!

Hugs,
Shirl

Y'all are right; February is flying by!

Good quotes today, especially the one about courage. Here's one I like:

"There are some things you learn best in calm, and some in storm."
~Willa Cather

One thing I learn best in storm is how to more fully appreciate calm. Happy Sunday!

Some positiveness today:

Always be a first-rate version of yourself,
instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.

Courage doesn't always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice
at the end of the day, saying,
"I will try again tomorrow."

Thanks for sharing all the good quotes this morning! This is one of my favorites. It's great advice, but soooooo difficult.

Love that quote, Shirl.

This was in an email this morning from "Daily Inspiration." A good reminder...

How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young,
compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving
and tolerant of the weak and the strong.
Because someday in life you will have been all of these.

Choose Inner Peace.
Nothing is worth losing your inner peace.
Take action as circumstances require,
but never surrender your inner peace.
Stop. Breathe deeply.
Close your eyes and breathe deeply again.

So many excellent quotes today, love them! It's been a good day so far, starting with a surprise at church of a visiting priest whose sermons I really enjoy. I came home to discover that my SO, who has been sick for some time, feels much better.

We are moulded, each one of us,
in the image of God,
and within our souls there is a fingerprint
none can erase.
We pray for those who have no regard
for anyone but self,
who put no value on human life.
For nations and individuals who abuse and kill.
We are not called to be judge or jury,
but we are called to be agents of change,
and if the butterfly that flaps its wings
should be our attitude to others
then so be it, Lord,
and may the hurricane this generates
somewhere within the world
reach into the hearts and souls of those
for whom we pray, and reveal to them
how precious are those
for whom they have no love,
and how precious are they
who now bring tears to the eyes of God.

Shirl, I love that quote you posted. Here are two from Desmond Tutu that I came across this week:

"We must be ready to learn from one another, not claiming that we alone possess all truth and that somehow we have a corner on God."

"Do your little bit of good where you are; it's those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world."

Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.

Good words, thank you for sharing! Shirl, that's one of my favorite poems of all time.

Building onto my New Year blog:
Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.
~ Lao Tzu

Wow...2015! It's hard to believe that it is 15 years since the new millennium.


"When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up though the pace seems slow--
You may succeed with another blow,
Success is failure turned inside out--
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit."
~ Unknown

Well we made it to our first serenity Sunday on Jan. 2015. Have a blessed and serene Sunday!

That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.

Very nice, Shirl, thank you for sharing.

I spent the first part of my Serene Sunday with my sweet mama. I went to visit her while my brother and his wife (with whom she lives) were out of town this weekend. I love spending time with her; we have such fun! One of my sisters met me there, so we had a little girls' weekend. Good times.

The Sunday before Christmas, may you have a blessed and serene Sunday.

A Christmas Story

For a moment or perhaps a long while,
we are dropped into the depths of despair,
a tragedy of intense proportions. In the darkness we struggle with difficult and often confusing feelings.

As Christians we often feel guilty about these feelings. All are true human emotions, and necessary in enabling us to cope.

God understands our pain and our suffering.
He will wrap his loving arms around us,
He will be there when no one else can.

After a time we begin to feel his presence.
You can see a faint light in the distance.

Light of HopeThis is the light of HOPE.

Moving toward the light -The Holy Spirit takes us by the hand and helps us to move even closer to the light. The light of the Lord that shines into each of our lives.

Here in The Lords loving presence our souls and our wounds begin to heal.

God has a plan for us and we can rest assured that we have been called here for a purpose. Our job is not yet finished.

We must continue to move forward.

We might not understand the sequence of events in our lives. We might not understand the meaning of our suffering. But we have not lost everything , we are not alone.

We will always have HOPE.


As the Holiday season approaches, let us remember that Hope was born at Christmas,
His name is Jesus.

And Hope does live on.

Hugs,
Shirl

I choose...

I choose to live by choice, not by chance; to make changes, not excuses; to be motivated, not manipulated; to be useful, not used; to excel, not compete.
I choose self-esteem, not self-pity.
I choose to listen to my inner voice, not the random opinions of others.

Thanks Wanda for getting our last serenity Sunday of Nov. going, I ran out of time this morning getting ready for church, today was our pastors last day, he's going to enjoy his retirement, it'll seem funny going next Sunday and not seeing him in the pulpit.

The Paradoxical Commandments

People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.

After an inspiring sermon at church last night, closing out the RC Church's liturgical year, I was inspired to find an advent-specific devotional. One of my friends is the go-to devotional & bible study person, but, like me, she had never done a specifically advent devotional. So we got on our smartphones and found several! I ended up downloading Family Rosary's "Advent Christmas," EWTN's "Advent Reflections". I hope one of them gives me what I'm looking for!

Advent begins next Sunday!

Sorry, didn't have time to get here this morning. Happy Sweetest Day to all you sweet people.

A life of reaction is a life of slavery, intellectually and spiritually. One must fight for a life of action, not reaction.

Instead of waiting for life to happen to you and then reacting to it in a hectic manner, take control of it by being proactive.
