Calendar Today by Lois

"There is no season when such pleasant and
sunny spots may be lighted on, and
produce so pleasant an effect on 
the feelings, as now in October." 
-  Nathaniel Hawthorne

"Youth is like spring, an over-praised season

more remarkable for biting winds than genial breezes. 
Autumn is the mellower season, and what

we lose in flowers we more than gain in fruits."
-   Samuel Butler

"Even if something is left undone,
everyone must take time to sit
 still and watch the leaves turn."
-   Elizabeth Lawrence

This very moment is sacred. All moments are sacred. They
will not come again. What is offered this moment for us to
grow on will not be offered in exactly this way again.
Trust in the goodness of the day

Appreciate the design of your life today.
Draw yourself close to the day.

I wake each morning with the thrill of expectation
and the joy of being truly alive. And I'm thankful
for this day.
~ Angela L. Wozniak

We have been given the gift of life. We all are survivors.
The odds against survival in our past make clear we have yet a
job to do and are being given the help to do it. Confidence
wavers in all of us, but the strength we need will be given
to each of us ....
