A Wonderful Stroke of Luck

Remember that not getting what you want
is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.


Of Note: We humans are born creators. It's our divine inheritance. But, frankly, we're not too good at it for the most part. Imagine the havoc produced if most human imaginings came to fruition. Might that not describe the world in which we currently reside? God sometimes gets a bad rap for the present chaotic state of worldly affairs. We only have to look in the mirror to see the true perpetrators. But there is hope for Humanity. After the dust has settled a bit, a look in that mirror will show millions of needy looking back. When we begin to see the need and serve unselfishly the common good, then oh what creators we will become. It is a promise.

Today's Weather Report: Partly cloudy with no sunshine streaming in the window at the moment. With temps in the teens, it's not even that cold. Just another regular winter day. This gorgeous flower photo taken by Marie captured the feeling of the white day.

News You Can Use Snippet: www.thehungersite.com is a great Internet site. With only a click, FREE resources are given to a worthy cause; with six clicks, six worthy causes are covered. Takes about a minute. It's starts feeling personal when done daily. At the end of the year, each of the six posted the amount of resources given in 2008. For example, almost 15,000 acres of land were purchased by the Rainforest section. That's quite laudable. Equally generous was the 77.8 million bowls of food given to rescued animals through the Animal Rescue section. The Hunger section, that is human hunger, provided 72 million bowls of food last year. Since the site's inception, 500 million bowls of food have been distributed to those in need. Check it out. Psychologically in this time of economically troubling times, it could have a salubrious effect.
