My really wonderful DH who went to the store late last night so I could have fresh fruit for my lunch today. He stayed gone for a long time, and I was worried. I got up this morning and found that the reason he was gone so long was because he was getting me presents!
~As if getting me the fruit wasn't present enough!

My ticker now shows my entire struggle since 2 weeks before I started SP. I started SP at 208, but started losing at 219.

That my father has made it through another night in ICU after having surgery for cancer.

Each day we have him with us is a blessing beyond words.

He is not showing much progress with the surgery complcations, but we pray each day things will start getting better.

Guess this is the first real one. It's almost 2 years since our first date, and I still feel like he hung the moon just for me!

For the human race, that our beauty and splendor would grace such a dismal and uncivilized world. I look forward to the new renaissance that we may become ever more and more enlightened so that someday even the most ancient creatures in this universe might look upon us with delight. I believe that all of existance is the body of god, all of time his mind, and that we are merely extentions of his infinate body. We are less concrete than ion storms blowing across a desolate plane, and our time is so brief, our size so small, our importance so apparently minute, yet we make up the body of god, we add to his mind, and we will someday rejoin the greatness of his god-head, his celestial form that we might add to him the insights that we have gained in our time in this material realm. The body of god is not in buildings of wood and stone, but it is in you and all around you split a piece of wood and you will find me, lift up a stone and I am there. All of the religions of this world are man's inturpretations of the glorious message pouring out from our eternal father, and that message is one of love, and hope, and desire. A desire for our success that no amount of selfish hedonism could ever know. It is our greed, our constant struggle against one another to be better, to be more right than the other people in our lives that seperates us, that makes us lonely and sad, and that removes us from the path of creation to the path of destruction. Competition breeds isolation, isolation breeds hatred, cooperation breeds curiousity, curiousity breeds knowing, knowing breeds trust, trust breeds love, love creates energy, an energy that will light this planet in a holy blaze to be seen by god himself. I am thankful for forgiveness, for love, for the peace of a simple breeze passing by on a hot day. I am thankful for the love of god pouring ever forth from his eternal being, and for the love of the enlightened human. I challenge you today to give up petty spirituality. To give up prejudice for another point of view, and to realize in love that we are all god's children and that for those of us who are serving him the best that we know how, we are all on the same team. The semantics have just made it appear differently. Even abraham said, "I do not know the name of the living god." Well, if the founder of our great religion did not know god's name, then how can we claim to. Weather he be called yahweh, or jahova, or allah, or krishna, or merely a cosmic state called budha. He is love and we all serve him. We are all his children, and he would have us lay down our arms and come to him. Have a wonderful day, and god bless you...
