snow- start to the week

ohno-part-2e_010

Getting around wasn’t easy for some today, the snow started last night, and kept falling well into the day.  City crews did their best to ensure that the main  highways were cleared, but it was made clear, side streets would not be cleared till after the afternoon drive home rush hours.

On the six o’clock news they showed one enterprising young man, Xross-country skiing into work.  I recall one year when I snow- shoed in =^_^=  I didn’t have to go out today, but I wanted to take advantage of the weather and attend a sale, that is usually impossible to get close to, especially if you want to park your vehicle, in my case, a big truck.

I was right, traffic was light, it was mid morning, and I had plenty of room to park. My day went very well, I found some great “deals” and enjoyed being out in the brisk snow filled air. Sure one had to drive slowly and with care, but we should be doing that at all time anyway.   I was able to get some shopping in without a lot of fuss, and get home at a decent hour.

The PL philosophy is that if you start your day with a positive attitude, and a sincere appreciation for the weather and the world around you, your chances of having a full and productive day are very good.

PL Precept #15  all is a mirror

PL Principle # 2  I will not have complaints about others, matters, nor the weather.  Rather I will always be creative and will for shortcomings in my own thinking and actions.

PL Principle # 3   I will live with a mind of appreciation towards others and things.

Merry Christmas?

Image

Everywhere we go there are decorations, and signs advertising events to celebrate the festive season. Merry Christmas was the standard greeting of the day back when I was a “youngster”.  Even though I myself didn’t celebrate “Christmas”  I knew what it was supposed to mean.  My Mother would take us to church where we would hear about the birth of Jesus and hear the Christmas songs that were being sung.  That was pretty much it, in the world away from the Sunday service, it was all about hanging out.music,dancing, & going out.  Then there was the formal or family dinner,  that no one was really interested in except the parents, I didn’t care for it then anymore than I care for it now.

What I do love and I mean truly have a deep affection for, is the spirit of what the season is supposed to be about.  It is my belief that this should be the spirit all year long, not just on a given day or month. Goodwill to all, and Peace on Earth.

Asked why I participate” in the  trappings of Xmas.  I do so because my family and  friends do, it is their tradition.  I may not study the bible, or follow the “teacher” they do,but I love them, and respect their way to God.  God is our connection, in God we are all ONE.  ” Everyone has a different point of view.  Let’s enjoy and appreciate the personalities and differences we all have.” (PL Teaching)

We all celebrate the JOY of GOD, we all pray for PEACE on EARTH, if some say it by wishing me a Merry Xmas, then   Merry Christmas it is.
