SECOND SUNDAY OF LENT






ANOTHER WISE TEACHER PUT IT THIS WAY:



“Do not be anxious about tomorrow; tomorrow will look after it self,” he taught. (Matt 6:34)

 Realise yourself, that is, in the present moment, because your happiness and fulfilment are here and now. (JOHN MAIN)

IF YOU GIRLS WILL CHEW ON THIS ONE PARTICULAR PIECE OF SCRIPTURE AND JOHN MAIN'S SHORT COMMENTARY FOR A LONG TIME , YOUR LIFE WILL CHANGE.

BUT IT DOES TAKE MUCH PRACTICE. 
IT TAKES PAYING ATTENTION.
IT TAKES MINDFULNESS.
IT TAKES TAKING TIME TO BE STILL.
IT TAKES WORK.

BUT WITH ALL THE "TAKING" COMES A WONDERFUL "GIVING".

PAPA CONTINUES TO WORK ON THIS AFTER MANY, MANY YEARS.

LOVE,
PAPA

Bungee Girl


Dear Alice,
It's February 17, 2013. You are almost 21 months old. Above is a picture of a modified crib for those who decide at a very young age to start bungee jumping in the middle of the night.

Seems the "Circus Girl" has started jumping/falling out of her crib and wanting to explore on her own when she is assumed to be tucked away safe and sound.

Alice we never want to quench that circus spirit of yours but please allow us to take the necessary precautions to keep you safe in the meantime.
Seems God knew what God was doing in blessing you with a daddy who is an engineer.
Who knows what other inventions he is going to have to come up with just to keep you safe?
Have fun Circus Girl but for gosh sakes BE SAFE!

love you,
Papa

Blueberry Enlightenment

Alice,
You truly are the Circus Girl!
I'm wondering if you parents are getting your blueberries from Washington State or Colorado.
Back in my day we used brownies!

Then again, as Papa thinks about your life so far,
You seemed to have been born to smile and laugh,
I guess the blueberries just seem to take it over the top.

A berry, berry special little girl!

Love you,
Papa
