Our last serenity Sunday for Sept., wow, where did this month go. Have a blessed and serene Sunday!

Our "Rainbows and Butterflies" are the small miracles of our life -
the little things that are so easy to overlook,
yet so awe inspiring when we take a moment
to notice and to pay attention.
Give thanks for the rainbows, for the butterflies,
for all God's creatures - large and small,
for the bright blue sky and the soft fog and the gentle rain,
for the tree veiled in the season's first frost,
for the baby's laugh,
for the touch of a hand and the whispered "I love you."

- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

May all have a blessed and serene Sunday.

Feelings aroused by the touch of someone's hand, the sound of music, the smell of a flower, a beautiful sunset, a work of art, love, laughter, hope and faith - all work on both the unconscious and the conscious aspects of the self, and they have physiological consequences as well.

I have to remember it's Sept. and time to get back to these weekend challenges. Hope all are having a blessed and serene Sunday!

One more serenity Sunday left in this month, wow, then on to May!

The fact that I can plant a seed and it becomes a flower, share a bit of knowledge and it becomes another's, smile at someone and receive a smile in return, are to me continual spiritual exercises.

Well here we are at the last serenity Sunday of March, almost time to march into April. Have a blessed and serene Sunday!

Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain... To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices - today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.

Thanks for the scripture, Shirl. I love the imagery of the power of our words being healing and nourishing. I'll certainly work to keep that imagery implanted in my brain this week and reflected in my actions.
A nice serene image!

February 19 and our next to the last serenity Sunday of this month. Even though it feels like spring today I know it's still a few weeks away and these unusually above temps will not last, but will enjoy it will they are here. Have a blessed and serene Sunday!

I know why I am here and my only real focused goal is to live each day to the fullest and to try and honor God and be an encouragement to others. What the future holds is firmly in God's hands, and I am very happy about that!

Mauri I love what you posted this morning, beautiful. I hope you don't mind but I want to copy and use this as my status on my FB page. Thanks for getting us going.

Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday.

Happy Sunday. With what is happening here in the United States, this seems appropriate.
************
Let today be a day of acceptance, compassion, and understanding.
Let us feel our bond of humanity with each of our planet's six billion souls.
Put aside color, geography, wealth, education, political and religious beliefs,
and feel the throb of each human heart in your heart.
Never let your compassionate connection with all creation
be limited by your politics, your language, or your traditions.
Know that Spirit transcends all cultural differences and embraces all creation.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Posting early to allow me a tech-free Sunday. Hope your Sunday is serene.


The key to happiness is inner peace.
The greatest obstacles to inner peace are disturbing emotions such as anger, attachment, fear and suspicion,
while love and compassion and a sense of universal responsibility are the sources of peace and happiness.

Have a blessed and serene Sunday!

Work hard for what you want because it won't come to you without a fight. You have to be strong and courageous and know that you can do anything you put your mind to. If somebody puts you down or criticizes you, just keep on believing in yourself and turn it into something positive.

Happy 2017 on this first serenity Sunday of our new year.

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're doing something.

Shirl, that was very beautiful, thank you for sharing! So true.

My day did not start out serene. I slept in, which was wonderful, but I had to do a reset around 10:00 am. I was just not myself. God and I had a little talk and I came away from that in a better frame of mind.

This transition to another person living in the house full time has been a challenge. My most frequent prayer has been for patience. (I pray for that for Jim, too, because I know he needs it as well!)

Nancy liked your post from last Sunday. Our Oct. has gone by fast. Have a blessed and serene Sunday!

Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain... To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices - today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.

In our office, Tel wrote my personal mantra suggested by my therapist on our blackboard. It is "Be right or be peaceful." This reminded me of that. It is a choice.
**********
It's not the situation that's causing your stress,
it's your thoughts,
and you can change that right here and now.
You can choose to be peaceful right here and now.
Peace is a choice,
and it has nothing to do with what other people do or think.

Returned from church & enjoying outdoors through the glistening raindrops. Love St. Patrick's take...

I arise today
Through the strength of heaven:
Light of sun,
Radiance of moon,
Splendour of fire.
Speed of lightning,
Swiftness of wind,
Depth of sea,
Stability of earth,
Firmness of rock. Saint Patrick

I'm communing with nature as I look out my kitchen door at all the snow!

Positives:
I got to stay home instead of traveling.
I have the girls and Kyle coming over now for Thanksgiving dinner.
There is (yet) more moisture saturating the ground.
My carrots that are still in the garden supposedly will be sweeter due to a "frost".
We are safe and sound, the furnace is running, and we have food to place on the table

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving.

Our first serenity Sunday of Oct.

The House of Prayer

The house of prayer
is no farther away
Than the quiet spot
where you kneel and pray.
For the heart is a temple
when God is there
As you place yourself
in His loving care.

Great poem Shirl...thank you for sharing and the reminder that none of us are without sin.

Have a blessed and wonderful day, remember that you have no idea what another's challenges are on a personal level.
