Service Book of Days – 9/22/09

22 09 2009
  • Outside my window… (weather, what do you hear, what do you see?) it was such a beautiful day for the first day of fall. Outside my window at work there were hundreds of birds gathering for their fall flight away. It was a fascinating sight
  • my thoughts...are relaxed. I am feeling good about the energy flowing through my house and the way things are going. Normally when things are going so well I would almost prepare myself for the something bad that I thought would follow these good moments. I’m not doing that anymore. I am enjoying all the good moments and letting the things I don’t know worry about themselves. God is right…tomorrow has its own worries…today is where I need to be….(okay that was a big paraphrase but the sentiment is the same…lol)
  • Today’s Quote…It is not the happiness that makes us grateful…But the gratefulness that makes us happy. Not really sure where I saw this quote at but it has been one of my favorites for a long time.
  • i am thankful for…always my family, all my moments – good and bad
  • From my service training... (any skills, training etc; notes you want to share this week) Nothing new at the moment
  • From the kitchen… (menu for the week, what are you cooking?) I am learning how to cook one new meal a weak for the kids. We had curried, mango pork chops with brown rice last week. I think this week I will make a butternut squash soup and homemade biscuits.
  • i am wearing...black jeans and a black t-shirt….feeling very loose and relaxed.
  • i am creating… (crafts, sewing etc;) nothing new at the moment
  • my adventures this week... (where are you going this week?) I am going to a munch in New york this weekend with friends. Should be a ton of fun 🙂
  • Becoming well read... (What are you reading this week?) Finishing up the Compleat Slave by Jack Rinella.
  • i manifest and co-create… (what are your hopes, dreams, and prayers this week) Peace and tranquility in my house and with my children. I pray for the momentum that we have established with this school year to continue through the rest of the school year.
  • Todays Melody... (what music are you listening to? even if it’s just the sound of a bird…)”Changes” by Incognito…the chorus of this song says “bring on the changes”. That’s wassup…One thing that happens in this life is that things change…sometimes good…sometimes bad. I want to not shy away from the changes that happen.
  • One of my favorite things…is to daydream. Yeah I admit I like to take moments and let my mind wander to wherever it wants to go. I dream and day dream in bright vibrant colors.
  • further plans for this week…housecleaning/clearing. Continuing my workout plan. Going to a munch on Saturday
  • Still….life (share a picture you’ve taken OR a picture you found online that speaks to you)

Book of Days – 7/6/09

6 07 2009

A few posts back I wrote about a new blog spot called Service Savoire Faire started by a friend.  One of the blogs was about a book of days.  This is a way to remember the “now” moments of life and is something that is done every Monday or more if you like.  Today is my first Monday, feel free to join in with me.  Master has so graciously shown me how to create my own blog spot so I think I will post my other days there but start my week off here.

Read the following prompts:

  • Outside my windowit’s green trees and lush grass.  The sky is a baby blue with white clouds.  Peace and beauty
  • my thoughts…are introspective.  Releasing and trying to relax into the uncontrollable moments of life
  • Today’s Quote…taken from the daily mantra…I wanted a perfect ending.  Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end.  Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next.  Delicious ambiguity. (Gilda Radner)
  • i am thankful for…this moment, my family, my Master, being able to feel hurt and happiness
  • From my service training… decorating with a limited budget.  Master passed along this link that talked about creating roman shades from regular blinds
  • From the kitchen… hmmm guess I should plan something
  • i am wearing…royal blue silk blouse, baby blue pants, natural hair twists, my silver collar, and silver earrings
  • i am creating… nothing at the moment
  • my adventures this week… no adventures planned for this week.
  • Becoming well read…  Listening to an audio book on the Four Agreements and contemplating getting a book called Waiting for Autumn by Scott Blum http://www.scottblum.net/books/downloads/wfa-first3chapters.pdf
  • i manifest and co-create… speak good and positive thoughts into existence.  I pray for peace and acceptance and clarity.
  • Todays Melody Listening to the soundtrack from “Waiting to Exhale”  It is fabulous…although I think the movie could have been better but love the premise.
  • One of my favorite things is to listen to music and sing
  • further plans for this week…pay bills, go shopping for the clothes for the kids, pray
  • Still….life (share a picture you’ve taken OR a picture you found online that speaks to you)  Freedom
