    I walked a mile with Sorrow,
    And never a word said she;
    But, Oh, the things I learned from her
    When Sorrow walked with me!
    -- Robert Browning Hamilton

    We may think that forgetting the past is essential for growth and peace of mind. It's a tempting idea: we'll start over again, we think, fresh and new. But if we lose that old pain, we'll also lose all that we learned. We may repeat our mistakes, or make even worse ones next time. Dwelling on the past is equally dangerous. We began recovery to build a better life.

    To find and maintain our balance, each area of our lives needs attention. A healthy mind in a healthy body is free to find God. And, with God's help, we can learn to recognize and forgive our past mistakes, while we keep the remarkable lessons we learned from life.

    With our remembering, with our inventory, we can truly experience the repentance that frees us from regret and remorse. When we acknowledge our mistakes, we can learn from them and come to forgive ourselves.

    Today help me use my memories to learn and change. Help me to forgive my past.

    Drag your thoughts away from your troubles . . . by the ears, by the heels or any other way you can manage it. It's the healthiest thing a body can do.
    —Mark Twain

    It requires very little effort - and no imagination - to start feeling sorry for ourselves. Often, it is easy to feel sorry for ourselves in our families. Instead of being inspired by the sports talents of an older brother, the popularity of a lovely sister, or the fame of a parent or relative, we often take the easier attitude: "I'm denied all that he or she has."

    If we work hard at developing our own abilities so that we can excel, we will find ourselves proud of, and applauding, what others do. If a personal problem brings us self-pity, we must remind ourselves that all people have problems. We can cope as well as the best of people if we learn from them and think positively.

    Who among those close to me can I be proud of today?

    An Irish priest is driving down to New York and gets stopped for speeding in Connecticut. The state trooper smells alcohol on the priest's breath and then sees an empty wine bottle on the floor of the car. He says, "Sir, have you been drinking?" "Just water," says the priest, fingers crossed. The trooper says, "Then why do I smell wine?" The priest looks at the bottle and says, "Good Lord! He's done it again!"

    People-Pleasing

    For some of us, people-pleasing has become a way of getting our needs and wants met. But people-pleasing is manipulative and condescending. And it cheats us. When we are busy pleasing others, we are not being true to ourselves (nor those we are pleasing).

    Rather than manipulating people, let us simply ask for what we need and want. We are all lovable and deserving, just as we are. We can truly please ourselves and others by simply being ourselves.

    Do I ask honestly for what I want or need today?

    Thought for the Day

    The path to true connection is to be myself. The path to getting what I need is to ask for it.

    Jesus had absolute trust in God

    PrayingHow many times in one day do we question the power of God? Some days it might feel like every five minutes. We question if God is really here with us. We question if God really cares about us. We question if God is supporting us at all. Whenever we walk through difficult struggles, our faith is tested and we question.
    When I read the first reading, I immediately thought of my trust in the Lord. It is a very reassuring reading because we read not only about our enemies and those who desire to see us fail but also about God. God is right there with us as the wicked are whispering about our demise.

    They lived hoppily ever after!

    Because the chicken had his Easter eggs! “But the Lord is with me, like a mighty champion:”

    Everyone has his own fingerprints. The white light streams down to be broken up by those human prisms into all the colors of the rainbow. Take your own color in the pattern and be just that.
    --Charles R. Brown

    We are often amazed at how different members of the same family seem to be. Contrasts are often great: one child might be loud and funny, one might be timid and quiet, and yet neither seems to take after the parents.
    A family is like a vegetable garden. The vegetables respond to outside influences. The one exposed to more sunlight will grow differently than the one growing in a damp, shady place. Vegetables growing in crowded areas of the garden may not be as developed as those around them, but they might be tastier.
    Although we may have common roots, outside experiences and friends mold us too, making each of us unique. We sometimes lose ourselves by comparisons and feel as if we don't belong, but the variety of our family garden is what makes the world so interesting.
    How can I honor another person's uniqueness today?


    Whenever your ex says, "You'll never find someone like me," the answer to that is, "That's the point."

    In wildness is the preservation of the world.
    - Henry David Thoreau
    Nature confronts us with its beauty in a flower or a furry animal. The awesomeness of nature is in a lightning bolt or a majestic mountain. Every variety of tree has its own uniquely textured bark. Each annual ring in a tree trunk is a natural record of the growing conditions in each year it grew. These things remind us we are not in charge, and we are moved by the experience.
    This "wildness" is everywhere around us, and we are renewed by it when we interact with it. At night, in the city, we look up and see the ancient moon. When we live with a pet, it reminds us we are creatures too. We are part of this larger whole. We don't just appreciate nature -- we are nature. When we open our eyes and learn to be a part of it, it renews and lifts our spirits.
    Today, I will notice my relationship with the sun and moon, with the plants and animals in my world.

    Q: Why shouldn't you tell a secret on a farm? A: Because the potatoes have eyes, the corn has ears, and the beans stalk.
