My word for 2019 was LISTEN
Empathic listening is a way of listening and responding to another person that improves mutual understanding and trust.
**The Set-aside Prayer: from (DJBTOO— Donna)
Help me set aside everything I know, and everything I think I know, for an open mind and new experiences.

My word for 2018 was JOY!
Finding Joy in the journey. It was a very joyful year!

My word for 2017 was HOPE
I have hope in my heart for all good things personally and spiritually. I have hope for a world at peace.

My word for the year 2016 was ADVENTURE !
It was a good word and forced me to step out of my comfort zone many times. Some adventures were with friends, some with family, some alone and many that I will always cherish.

From: Brave Enough by Cheryl Strayed
Nobody will protect you from your suffering. You can't cry it away or eat it away or starve it away or walk it away or punch it away or even therapy it away. It's just there, and you have to survive it. You have to endure it. You have to live through it and love it and move on and be better for it and run as far as you can in the direction of your best and happiest dreams across the bridge that was built by your own desire to heal. Therapists and friends can help you along the way, but the healing--the genuine healing, the actual real-deal, down-on-your-knees-in-the-mud change--is entirely and absolutely up to you.

This is part of Fra Giovanni's Christmas Prayer
"I salute you! There is nothing I can give you which you have not; but there is much that, while I cannot give, you can take.
No heaven can come to us unless our hearts find rest in it today. Take Heaven.
No peace lies in the future which is not hidden in the present moment. Take Peace.
The gloom of the world is but a shadow; behind it, yet within our reach is joy. Take Joy!"

    Happy Friday!! I noticed when looking at the grocery ads that June is designated as National Dairy Month. I thought it might be appropriate to start off the month with some milk jokes. I'll apolgize right now, because a couple of these are utterly ridiculous!

    Where do astronauts get their milk?
    From the Milky Way.

    What kind of milk comes from a pampered cow?
    Spoiled milk.

    I bought a can of evaporated milk, but when I opened it - it was empty.

    What kind of milk do yo get from a brown cow?
    Chocolate milk.

    What do you call a cow that won't give milk?
    A milk dud.

    What kind of milk do you get from a forgetful cow?
    Milk of Amnesia.

    I hope these jokes weren't too sour for you.

    Have a wonderful Friday, and a wonderful weekend!

    Have a good week and an even better month!

    emoticon F - Focus on the present moment to discover the positive in your day.

    emoticon L – Love yourself as you are no matter where you are in your journey.


    emoticon J - Just breathe . . . relax . . . feel your stress melt away.
    emoticon U – Use mistakes as stepping stones to deeper understanding of yourself.

    Hallelujah! It's Friday! What a blessing!
    Here are some funny church bulletin postings.

    Mrs. Jones remains in the hospital and needs blood donors for more transfusions.
    She also is having trouble sleeping and requests tapes of Pastor Nelson's sermons.

    The Choir director invites any member of the congregation who enjoys sinning to join the choir.

    The ladies of the church have cast off clothing of every kind.
    They may be seen in the church basement on Friday afternoon.

    Our new associate minister unveiled the church's new tithing campaign
    slogan last Sunday: I upped my pledge - up yours!

    A new cookbook is being compiled by the ladies of the church.
    Please submit your favorite recipe with a short antidote for it.

    Ladies don't forget the rummage sale. It's a good chance to get rid
    of those things not worth keeping around the house. Don't forget your husbands.

    Tip of the day: How do they make holy water? They boil the hell out of it!

    Enjoy your weekend!
