There have been many new visitors the past couple of weeks. Thank you for visiting our site!
Feel free to scroll through Project Thanx. Possibly you'll find a quote or a passage that will allow a new focus for the day.
Here's one to consider...
Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.

Earth... Teach Me
Earth teach me quiet - as the grasses are still with new light. Earth teach me suffering - as old stones suffer with memory. Earth teach me humility - as blossoms are humble with beginning. Earth teach me caring - as mothers nurture their young. Earth teach me courage - as the tree that stands alone. Earth teach me limitation - as the ant that crawls on the ground. Earth teach me freedom - as the eagle that soars in the sky. Earth teach me acceptance - as the leaves that die each fall. Earth teach me renewal - as the seed that rises in the spring. Earth teach me to forget myself - as melted snow forgets its life. Earth teach me to remember.
Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away.
Might there be a friend in your life who you feel safe with, who "with a breath of kindness" lets go of the clutter and sees what's going on?
I know no better time to say "Thank you" then the here and now.
How about taking an action today to remember them and the blessings they bestow upon your life?
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting~
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.
Possibly a place in the "family of things" is to be a peacemaker; or to be a contributor to an upbeat mood; or to remain calm in the midst of turmoil; or to be a joke teller, lifting another out of despair...
Use imagination today, choose a role and live it to the fullest.
Let it linger a bit. Possibly read a couple of times. Take your time.
What If? ~ Jena Strong
What if you knew that everything was going to be okay, that something was in motion beyond your field of vision, beyond even the periphery of your knowing?
What if you knew that everything you want, everything you've been seeking, trying to figure out, missing, is right here, already whole in your hands, in your life?
What if taking in what is could satisfy your longing? What if you could rest your frantic, racing, busy mind and rest your neglected, tired body, put your head down in someone's lap to have your hair stroked, like a cat, or a child?
What if you didn't need to understand how it works, but could enjoy the magic of how love shows itself in the most unexpected, simplest of gestures? What if everything is just it should be?
What if nothing had to be better, bigger, different, or other? What would you do then? Who would you be?
