Last night I finally incorporated that tradition into my living here in Frederic. It was not homemade completely for I started with a Boboli pizza crust...but the toppings were all mine: pizza sauce, sweet Italian sausage, onions, mushrooms, and lots and lots of cheese. I can't wait for breakfast this morning!
This morning...from today's Daily Word is this phrase: "To be fully comfortable with my life, I may think I need to have complete control over every variable in it—family, friends, government, weather, and more. But my true freedom comes through Spirit. When I think and move and have my being through my spiritual nature, I am free. I am unlimited."
Can you imagine that unlimited freedom? Recently a friend and I were discussing how we become prisoners to our belongings. An example would be our homes filled with the treasures and belongings of a lifetime. At some point in our desire to hang on to them they begin to own us. I joked during that conversation...yet I was serious...that when I move from this house all that will accompany me are CJ, a suitcase of clothes, my cameras and my computer.
Don't get me wrong...for I am happy right now with things just the way they are right now...my wee house in the woods, sitting here writing and sipping on coffee, and celebrating good health. An "attitude of gratitude" is my mantra. There are not many that have the blessings that I have. I am truly thankful.
