Football carnival tomorrow on Friday…

On this day, God wants you to know

... that life is not a distraction from, life is an occasion for prayer. You don't need a special place or special time to pray. You don't need to be in a special mood to pray. Praying is like breathing, - continuous, essential, life-giving, - praying is the conversation with God you start with birth and continue into old age. Praying is your celebration of God, - everything you do, everything you think, everything you say is another word, another sentence of your prayer.

On this day, God wants you to know

... that every moment is an opportunity for you to be happy. You know how sometimes it seems that life is just throwing you one curved ball after another? Well, guess what, - you have a great way to respond! - you can use every opportunity, every single one, to be happy. Don't just take a shower - feel into and receive pleasure from the water on your skin. Don't just walk on the street - enjoy the fragrances of the trees and the flowers on your way. Don't just drive your car - sing karaoke to your favorite radio station.

On this day, God wants you to know

... that all emotions grow in size when practiced regularly. Practice love to have more love, practice hate to have more hate. Practice kindness to have more kindness, practice depression to have more depression. The choice is yours as always.

On this day, God wants you to know

... that if you would rather live than die, all is in your hands. Life is not lost by dying; life is lost minute by minute, day by dragging day, in all the thousand small uncaring ways.

Happy Journaling…

It is so cute how the older brothers are helping him with his uniform. I'm sure that helps with the excitement of being a football player:)
Have a great week-end,
