LENT, EASTER, and PEACE.

LENT, EASTER, and PEACE.
It's easy to feel bad about so much in the world, right now.
But I will ask you, dear readers, to take a moment, every day until Easter Sunday (April 12th) to find at least one thing for which you are grateful. I know I'm grateful every day for my (improving) health. Meditate, pray while cleaning out a drawer or closet(My mother once told me "Anything can be done as a prayer" ), and give something up you don't need.
Recycle.
And think about how tremendous this Season of Joy, of Hope, of Renewal, truly is.
In this country(USA) we have a new leader who embodies HOPE.May we all support our new President Obama, and may we work towards common goals, and find common ground with those who would disparage us.
May we feel the Spirit of Christ within us. The God of Non-Violence will surely manifest in this world, soon. And we will all be blessed!
Peace, kids.
