for all God's creatures - large and small,

and the whispered "I love you."

The Eye-of-the-Storm.
Surrounded by the winds and the rain,

a moment of serenity among the challenge -
a time for repose and contemplation.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Our "Rainbows and Butterflies" are the small miracles of our life -

yet so awe inspiring when we take a moment
to notice and to pay attention.
Give thanks for the rainbows, for the butterflies,
for all God's creatures - large and small,
for the bright blue sky and the soft fog and the gentle rain,
for the tree veiled in the season's first frost,
for the baby's laugh,
for the touch of a hand and the whispered "I love you."
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Don't fall for looks, they can deceive.
Don't fall for wealth, in the end it fades away.

Soon we'll be sliding down the razor blade of life.

Hearts full of truth,
Six parts gin to one part vermouth.

album: An Evening Wasted With Tom Lehrer

We need less posturing and more genuine charisma.
Charisma was originally a religious term,
meaning "of the spirit" or "inspired."
It's about letting God's light shine through us.
It's about a sparkle in people that money can't buy.
It's an invisible energy with visible effects.
To let go, to just love, is not to fade into the wallpaper.
Quite the contrary, it's when we truly become bright.
We're letting our own light shine.
- Marianne Williamson

Which beliefs bring out the best in you?
Which beliefs hold you prisoner to yesterday
and limit your options for designing a great future?

or your communities opinions, rather than your own.
Those beliefs that withstand rigorous testing,
should become the foundation of your being -
your reason for living.
Take action on those beliefs.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

(it really is something separate from yourself).

I have my fingers, my toes,
some people in my life,
some material and financial state.

perhaps a nightmare,
perhaps a cherished memory,
but only a dream - nothing more.
I will make all decisions and actions based solely
on what I have today as a starting point."

regardless of what I had yesterday.
With zero-based gratitude,
I can be grateful each day for the gift of life itself.
