Monday morning, March snow. Is spring near?

by

Good morning sisters,

You may notice that I cleaned up the page a little yesterday. I deleted our “test” Posts, yet kept Judy’s and added a comment to her post. Did you see it?

I am delighted that we set up our blog on Saturday. And I have been thinking a lot about how we will use it. Will we Post during the week? Comment during the week? Will we use it to Power Up Sister Summit, the “place”? I am optimistic about all of these possibilities and will do my part in that effort.

The only thing that was missing from our sister summit on Saturday was the usual “catch-up”. And I have a lot on my mind. Particularly, my visit to Sedona. And Nancy’s failing health. And Dad. This is a part of life that is inevitable — our own getting older and having our parents experience failing health. I desperately want to do something to help. And when I was there, we were in the thick of it, just managing the hour by hour, day to day of caring for Nancy. I left there with a very heavy heart, sad and filled with compassion and a longing to connect with them from afar. I have been thinking about things that will help both of them. Maybe we can talk about this on Saturday?

So — Happy Monday. And while our skies are filled with grey clouds and snow lingers, I will keep in mind that spring is right around the corner. And the promise of 60 degrees this week in the forecast.

In my Meditations on the Mat reading this morning, the quote, “I learn by going where I have to go.” by Theodore Roethke, inspires me. Rolf Gates goes on to say,  “ . . . And every time we choose life, we find that fear loses its grip on us. We all know more than we think we do, and we are stonger than we believe ourselves to be.”

Yes, sisters, we do!

I love you all — Sam

    Love what you’ve done. All I have time for right now is to quote the poem from St. Thomas Aquinas in your recommended “Love Poems From God” –

    If It Had Not Believed

    Woud any seed take root if it had not believed
    His promise, when God said,

    “Dears, I will rain. I will help you. I will turn into
    Warmth and effulgence,

    I will be the Mother I am
    and let you draw from
    My body

    and rise, and
    rise.”

    Love this……
    love you, jude

    Oh Judy that is so good…………..yes it is the earth saying yes I believe this is the place for you to take hold of the soil around you and bloom

    I love that… on the Daily Calendar Marianne Williamson for March 25 is good.. We find our happiness to the extent to which we use our minds to bless the world, for that is the natural use of the mind. it is the reason we were born..
