Calendars Today by Lois



Fear is the greatest roadblock to trust. Trust
in others and life itself follows once you begin
to trust yourself more and fear yourself less.

Today give up the need to over structure
your life. Learn to wait when you need to
wait, knowing that you are receptive to the
inspiration of inner guidance. Waiting will allow
you to receive what you need to live a better life.
Waiting brings you the strength to give.

Today reclaim the lead in your life. Each day
ask for continued inspiration and guidance
from your higher power.

"The man who removed the mountain
began by carrying away small stones."
~ Chinese Proverb

"When a man is wrapped up in himself, he
makes a pretty small package."
~ John Ruskin

My granddaughter Morgan on the right,
and her friends. Their football team won the
championship for the season. Something to
smile about for sure!

And both my granddaughters -
Madison(L)  Morgan(R)

These are the most SPECIAL smiles!

1 tablespoon cherry-flavored brandy. Spread 1 tablespoon

and a prayer for today

I hope everyone had a good weekend
