What a beautiul morning it is today. Cup of coffee, quiet house, sunshine through the windows and surrounded by books....one of the most peaceful things I know.
Poetry...I love poetry. It brings me so much joy!
"God made no act without a cause,
Nor heart without an aim,
Our inference is premature,
Our premises to blame." E. Dickson
Blame---why blame? And I have been so guilty of this sin. God forgive me, please?
To live life in anticipation;
and expectation that each
new breath is fresh, alive, anew and exciting;
To be thankful and
in constant mindfulness
that I live under grace;
To know that peace is a state of mind
I choose to hold next to my heart;
That is my desire
for every God given moment.
Inspired this morning by William Henry Channing:
"To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly; to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart; to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never. In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common. This is to be my symphony."
