It feels good to be back and able to do the challenges again. A big thank you to Kathy for filling in for me during the time I didn't have my computer.

Sunday mornings begin with an hour of yoga. The gentle movement, focus, and intention set at the beginning of the session grounds me in serenity for the day.

A gratitude journal arrived in the mail last week from a spiritual teacher. i first connected with him about 10 years ago. The journal focuses on capturing your daily feelings, body work, mind work, and spiritual work. It brings me great peace when I focus this way. It has been months since I’ve seen anyone from this group. But here in the mail was a beautiful gift to help me on my journey through life. Day 1 came with the following reminder:

“if the only prayer you said was thank you, that would be enough.” - Master Eckhart

Have a beautiful day, wherever you are. It is a gift of 24 hours.

We are expecting sleet & freezing rain - hopefully after I get home.

My favorite passage from THE PRACTICE OF THE PRESENCE OF GOD by Brother Lawrence. Over 40 years ago I first read it at the suggestion of a priest friend. It was a moment of enlightenment for me.

"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."

Mauri I agree Mother Nature is having a problem, maybe she's having a senior moment and has forgotten to supply the warmer temps that are suppose to come with spring, let's hope she has an a ha moment pretty soon. May you all have a serene and blessed Sunday!

Hello March! May you all have a blessed and serene Sunday!

Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast,
It is not proud. It does not dishonor others,
It is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered,
It keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil
but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
- Corinthians 13:4-8 (NIV)

Mauri enjoy your tech free Sunday and thank you for getting us started this morning. Wishing all a blessed and serene Sunday!

I Receive ALL of Life with Thanksgiving -
I have gratitude for EVERYTHING
that has ever occurred to bring me to this moment.
I give thanks for the joys and the sufferings,
the moments of peace and the flashes of anger,
the compassion and the indifference,
the roar of my courage and the cold sweat of my fear.
I accept gratefully the entirety of my past and my present life.

Mauri...that is a great quote. Thank you for sharing.
Shirl...the quote you shared is so much what I am attempting to do this year. Thank you.

I am attempting to go tech free as much as possible on the weekends. I need to focus on other things and give myself a break.

Our first serenity Sunday of Dec. May peace be with you throughout this month and the new year we'll soon be given.


Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind.
To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy,
is to have the real spirit of Christmas.

Here we are at our last serenity Sunday for Nov. We are getting ready to enter the month of Dec. may it be a good month as we get ready to greet a new year.

This is my wish for you:
Comfort on difficult days,
Smiles when sadness intrudes,
Rainbows to follow the clouds,
Laughter to kiss your lips,
Sunsets to warm your heart,
Hugs when spirits sag,
Beauty for your eyes to see,
Friendships to brighten your being,
Faith so that you can believe,
Confidence for when you doubt,
Courage to know yourself,
Patience to accept the truth,
Love to complete your life.

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."

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.

“Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.” —Saint Francis de Sales

To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless.

Gilbert K. Chesterton

Wonderful quote. Will be my mantra this week.

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.

Good Sunday morning. May you have a blessed and serene one.

Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24

May we speak healing words this week.

Hugs,
Shirl

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!

Just don't give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don't think you can go wrong.
