Friday’s Motivational Quotes / Re-Posting From Sarah

The above quote pretty much sums up how we should handle everything in our lives. How we react to any given moment or action is usually how the situation gets handled. React calmly instead of panicking and you will have CONTROL over the outcome.                       …

Everything Happens For A Reason + A Post Of My Own .

3 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

Meditation and My Morning Routine- So Far

It’s been busy here in Our Neck Of The Woods. Very busy. I’ve mentioned briefly the Event this Saturday. It’s huge. The work there will be less intense once the Event is over. We are talking Media. The works. Once it is over, we can get back to work on making the Paddling Trail better….

Pay It Forward Friday’s Sarah’s Attic Of Treasures

How is the Pay It Forward Challenge Going?
Have you put your cell phones away when you are in the company of others?
Image result for Cell Phones At the table PhotosHow is this family time? They asked and answered a question but neither stopped what they were doing.
This is NOT good family time.

Why go out and eat if you are going to talk /text on the phone while you are there?
You are missing a great opportunity to simply have fun.
To work on NOT having the cell phone on
and at the table during meal times.
If it must be on, put it on a counter AWAY from the table.

This Weeks NEW Challenge Is TWO – FOLD.
1. Eat your meals together.
If not all of them, then at least one meal a day.
2. To Say Grace at least at one meal a day.
Say it together. Say it silently. Say it.

Teach your kids to thank God/ Jesus for the blessings you receive.

Dear Lord,
Thank you for the food we are about to eat. ……

Do I say prayers at meal times?
Honestly, Not as much as I should.
If I eat in the kitchen, yes I do.
Danny and I seldom eat together any more.
I usually don’t eat breakfast so Danny eats his in the computer room.

Do we eat lunch together….It depends on if he is already on the computer. Usually he is.
Danny will eat dinner/supper at the table . I usually sit with him. He will eat RIGHT before going to bed. Midnight and later

Our family always ate together. So did Bobby and I. Always.
Come Lord Jesus,
Be Our Guest.

You can eat your meal anywhere as long as you eat together.

I Am Thankful For An Awesome Event And Being Able To Rest Afterwards – Day 15

I was the go to person for getting everything set up at the park.
Our volunteer co-ordinator made arrangements for the actual event. I am very glad I didn’t have to. Sometimes it is nice to be in the background getting it done and not having to be the person in the spotlight. She dealt with All the media.
Even Danny was left out of most of it.
We got the BALL rolling and worked on it for 3 years behind the scenes.
It was wonderful though for it to be acknowledged officially.

Meditation for Us NEWBIES. – Sarah’s Attic Of Treasures ( Comment From Sarah) 

From Sarah:

Today’s post will be a bit more focused since I have found a wonderful blog to learn how to meditation. Or at least start on this journey. Up until now, I only knew that I wanted to meditate. I needed to meditate.
I just had no idea how to start. No idea how to go about it. For me, sitting and just listening to music or someone talking wasn’t going to do it for very long. There had to be a way I could quiet my mind. To stop it from going on and on. My mind wears me out. It is restless and constantly changing direction.
Yesterday, I found a wonderful post on MEDITATION and shared it. Today, I spent hours looking through that site and everything it had to share.
