Now and then, I get a bit mushy and reflect on the wonderful gifts which God has given to me. I am grateful for many things--among them:
Music, which lifts me from this worldly world
Singing in the Choir at St Ann Church
Art--all genre, all form, all color
I will get to "ride" to my meeting tonight
It is my "home group" meeting (Thursday)
I am librarian for this group
Never figured I'd be proud to be a librarian
I will tell my weekly joke tonight to about 200 people
They will laugh
Laughter is good
I use my computer for God's sake!
I have several 'families'
Prayer Girl and our children is one dear family
My early 7 AM meeting is my other dear 'family'
Other AA meetings I love
You bloggers--Yessss!--are also my 'dear' family.
I love all my families
My families love ME!
I wear a beautiful solid gold cross
Daily Reflections (A.A. Readings)
Anthony De Mello (Author)
The Cloud of Unknowing (Book)
A roof that does not leak
A toilet that does
A wide TV screen
That I don't watch TV
Knowing how to pray
Learning how to meditate
My contact with God as a Friend
Do not ANYONE who reads this think that I am not grateful--in the extreme!
That's about enough for now--more to come...tomorrow? Before signing off for this Thursday night, I've GOT to tell you all:
I am most peaceful, most serene, most happy, most thankful, and I know that God is close to me--at these moments in front of my computer. This is whether I'm reading you, blogging, commenting, Emailing--and/or praying with you. I love you.
