I am thankful for a sunny day!!! The fog was only on the ground
this morning. The weather forecast is saying that we
might get 10 days of rain. I am really happy about
that too. It is just that today, I am so happy for
I am finding as I age, I want to spend more time in
the past. I don't know why, because it really wasn't
that good. I am forever telling the kids, the 60s
were junk. The 70s were not much better, I mean
what the heck was the Age of Aquarius? and Hair??
I was 12 years old and I wanted so much to be a hippy.
But, I lived next door to my grandparents, so they would
make me come over and watch Lawrence Welk, on Saturday nights. My
grandparents wanted me to look like the Lennon Sisters.
So anyway I digress,
Here is a poem I found that makes me remember
to stay in this day.
I was regretting the past
and fearing the future....
Suddenly my Lord was speaking;
"MY NAME IS I Am" He paused.
I waited. He continued.
" When you live in the past,
with its mistakes and regrets,
It is hard, I am not there,
My name is not I was."
" When you live in the future.
with its problems and fears,
It is hard. I am not there.
My name is not I will be."
"When you live in the moment,
It is not hard.
I am here.
MY NAME IS I AM"
Have a great Thursday!!
