MONDAY THOUGHTS!



MONDAY THOUGHTS

"Faith is a liberation of my I from its preoccupation with self that sets me free to respond to the Father, to speak the Yes of love (Pope John Paul II).
(I read this from a book I was using in church yesterday. I thought it was beautiful.)


A few more favorite affirmations:

When I or someone else opens the door to fear, I do not have to step through.

I think of others more than I think of myself.

I am free of envy and jealousy.

God is in charge!

I take care of myself.

I AM GRATEFUL FOR:
My husband and all our children
The sights, smells, sounds, and feel of the beach
The fact that when life is sad or difficult, I know it too shall pass
Answered prayer
Alcoholics Anonymous
Sobriety
My sponsees

My opportunity to volunteer
My scooter
The warmth of the sun
Faith, hope, and love

Great list. I like the idea that when things are difficult, I know that they will pass. It has gotten me through some tough times.
