Personal Prayer

Boy, the character flaws are coming fast and furious as I enter the fourth year of recovery. If they were bricks to the head, I would be getting a CAT scan for the resulting concussion. Attending group tonight, and as usual, really enjoyed the music (guest musician) and the teaching by one of our group… Continue reading Personal Prayer

Grateful challenge…

I'm thankful that we're still mostly dodging the rain, and even seeing a burst of sunshine from time to time. I enjoy the beauty wherever I can. It is lovely when the sun hits the greenery just right. The last several months have been challenging to say the least, with respect to family. I am… Continue reading Grateful challenge…

Time takes time…

Still cold. Like, really cold. But sunny too, and that's really nice. I like that a lot more than gray, gray, gray. 😎 Spent time with a friend today, and got to share some of my progress. I found that I am quite passionate about my healing and my journey. Our conversation was about a… Continue reading Time takes time…

Trenching along…

The snow is beginning to slowly melt off of the ground. It is cold, drizzly and wet. No real out doors time today. But I did spend some time helping a friend with some chore work. And that was good, through I should use gloves more often as my hands are a dried out wreck.… Continue reading Trenching along…

Prayerful Gratitude

Saw that our trees have mostly lost their leaves, but some are hanging on like someone has them super-glued to the branch. Which means it is virtually meaningless to clean the driveway at this point, but I do it anyway, because it appeals to my sense of tidy-ness. I have been spending a lot of… Continue reading Prayerful Gratitude

Friday’s Bridge…

I got up and felt much better.  The sun is shining and I am hoping to hit the gym. I do need to tend to my little plants outside, while the temperatures are still mild enough to keep them above ground. It is a mild autumn for certain. Not really complaining either. Spent time this… Continue reading Friday’s Bridge…

Wednesday on the way…

In coming close in to the natural world earlier today, I found myself drawn up into a trail that was only partially visible in and amongst the fallen leaves. But the quiet and lovely solitude beckoned and I couldn't resist the opportunity to become a part of the scene. It was a challenge to complete… Continue reading Wednesday on the way…

Tuesday calm

Ahhhh......a bit of a respite from the day to day. I am enjoying a little bit of space and time and the weather has cleared a bit. Love the fact it isn't raining and we were able to go on a walk. A refrain has been rolling through my head for a couple days..."...the wind… Continue reading Tuesday calm

Flannel conviction…

It started off pretty mucky around here. Dark, cold rainy. Definitely flannel shirt weather. But now the sun has peeped out from behind the clouds, and although the air is still a bit nippy, the colors of autumn are in bright celebration of it's arrival. I attended a meeting last night, and as per usual,… Continue reading Flannel conviction…
