Life in recovery, the ordinary.
Sunday, January 10, 2016
1-10-2016. Today’s quotes are all about the little things. The ordinary things. The little steps that add up to big change. So today, I am focusing on life, found in the little spaces. I was up WAY TO EARLY, and did last nights dishes. I Sparked, and meal planned and made the grocery list. After Mass this morning, I will shop. This afternoon, I will do the meal prep for the week. Corn beef and cabbage by request in crock pot. I am on day 5 of my whole30, and I feel great. I wish I could sleep better, maybe that will come in the next two weeks. This week I need to conquer traveling to unit meeting,and therapy. I want to attend Faith group this week. I have some work deadlines, and plan to WORK WORK WORK. The boys are between seasons, so track hasn’t started. Here are today’s quotes.
Do I eat to indulge in pleasure, or to give my body energy in order to help others? Do I sleep in order to indulge in laziness, or to be able to wake up refreshed, ready to serve God? When our ultimate goal is to help others, everything we do – even the things we do for ourselves – is counted by God as an act of charity.- Rabbi Eckstein. It is the ordinary self that is extraordinary, for it is this ordinary self that is one with the moment, one with the concrete reality of everyday life, that is the self God creates, the poor self, made rich in the poverty of the cross.-from Spiritual Resilience. This Sunday at Mass, thank God for the gift of the Spirit, through whom we can always have Jesus in our midst. Look around and see Jesus not only in the Eucharist but also in the word in the readings, in the priest celebrating the Mass and speaking his words, and in the community of people around you, the body of Christ.-from The Bible Geek
Have a great week Sparkers.!
