On Quitting

Sometimes being brave
means quitting.

While others don't believe in having
a Plan B, I believe in being flexible.

Words for the Soul

As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live 
a life worthy of the calling you have received. 
 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, 
bearing with one another in love.  
Make every effort to keep the unity of 
the Spirit through the bond of peace.

                                Ephesians 4-1:3

An amazing paradox is that it is
easier to be courageous than to be a
coward. Once you get over the initial
fear of plunging into the unknown, with all its
dangerous snake traps, the mere fact
that you dared to face a hard decision becomes
your ally.

 Discover the Joy in Living the Life You Want to Lead

sat near the box,
but had no
idea Rose would wrestle
for position in the box.

Thoughts on Character

Character is that which reveals
moral purpose, exposing the class
of things a man chooses or avoids.


A few weeks ago, the Get Along
visited Back in Time Antiques
in Redlands.

This one is a charmer with
twinkling lights.  Oh Oh France
our hearts are with you.

This morning the visiting priest greeted us with
Namaste.  He had to repeat it three times to get
our attention for a satisfactory response from
the congregation.

I bow to the God within you.

My Father Loved Chocolate

It's the simple things in life that are
the most extraordinary.

Paulo Coelho

Pai (pronounced like pie means father)  liked chocolate
in all its forms. German Chocolate Cake,
warm chocolate chip cookies, and mild milk chocolate, too.
