Today's affirmation:
I Receive ALL of Life with Thanksgiving -
I have gratitude for EVERYTHING
that has ever occurred to bring me to this moment.
I give thanks for the joys and the sufferings,
the moments of peace and the flashes of anger,
the compassion and the indifference,
the roar of my courage and the cold sweat of my fear.
I accept gratefully the entirety of my past and my present life.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

you release your anger and grant forgiveness.

Forgiving is your gift to yourself - a great gift - the gift of happiness.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

she will hear her heart, saying,
"What have you done with the miracles that God planted in your days?
What have you done with the talents God bestowed on you?"
- Paulo Coelho

War settles nothing.
- Dwight D. Eisenhower

Disarmament, with mutual honor and confidence,

the more they are frightened.

God is not what you imagine,
or what you think you understand.
If you understand you have failed.

a sheer mystery.

There is much that we do not have to know in order to live joyfully.
We Can Never Understand Our World, But We Can Still Enjoy It.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Uncertainty that comes from knowledge
(knowing what you don't know)
