Baptism time.

I like to look for rainbows whenever there is rain
and ponder on the beauty of an earth made clean again.

I want my life to be as clean as earth right after rain.
I want to be the best I can and live with God again.

I know when I am baptized my wrongs are washed away,
and I can be forgiven and improve myself each day.

I want my life to be as clean as earth right after rain.
I want to be the best I can and live with God again.

Quote- stolen from a blogger that declared "I love life"

I was scrolling through blogs when I came up one who's main quote was "I love life".  I had a small twinge of jealousy thinking that someone so callous to life's problems could so easily twist her perspective around and truly declare that she loved all the things about her. My twinge of jealousy toward her statement now turned to a gushing of envy and I very much wished I was she.  At any rate, I enjoyed the little everyday things she posted: the joys of a cup of milk,   gathering around the bbq pit cooking (in the middle of snow), sweeping up a dime and throwing it away and not having a cow.
I'm stealing a quote off her blog that sums up all I hope to attain from my educational pursuits.... please enjoy with me.
“Whatever an education is, it should make you a unique individual, not a conformist; it should furnish you with an original spirit with which to tackle the big challenges; it should allow you to find values which will be your road map through life; it should make you spiritually rich, a person who loves whatever you are doing, wherever you are, whomever you are with; it should teach you what is important: how to live and how to die.” (John Taylor Gatto, Dumbing Us Down)

No worries

Sorry to have such a lame blog.  I know I haven't been that great about keeping up appearances or diaries for that matter.  But hey, no worries. I found just what you are looking for.... a thought for today:
Don't let your worries get the best of you;
Remember, Moses started out as a basket case.
