Good Bye April

APRIL, Bye, bye!

Good Bye April2022,

Never to appear again; yes, we will see April again but never April in 2022. The BEGINNING of a new month today, May 1st!

ALREADY?

Time goes by so fast when we are having fun.
The beginning is always exciting; I expect a new Great grandchild soon, sometime during this new month of May.
Life first, we begin; begin the climb! Upward sometimes; we fall as Christ fell three times as He rose to His destination. We also have a destination, but first, we must BEGIN TO climb those worn steps covered with roses with thorns, sad times, and tearful times.

WE BEGIN

Oh No!
Reena’s Xploration

Tell the Truth but do it tactfully

Ethics is knowing the difference between what you have a right to do, and what is right to do. I have a right, to tell the truth, and to do it tactfully!

A couple of quotes, there are so many but I liked these two.

 “Integrity is telling myself the truth. And honesty is telling the truth to other people.”- Spencer Johnson.

 “Ethics is nothing else than reverence for life.”- Albert Schweitzer. — Abortion comes to my mind!

Be happy, be ethical.

Stream of Conscience

What can I do anyway?

Presenting My Stream of Conscience

The news again, skip it! Yes, yes a war! Don’t want to hear it!

What can I do anyway, I know, I will sit down and pray, yet I do not want to get tripped up on distractions again. Just sit, relax and ask for the grace to pray well, don’t think about anything else, I hate distractions when talking to God, this time I will not trip up, I promise!

#WordPrompt… It’s Back

Word Press Prompt, this month it is the world BRIDGE; Yes WORLD!

Bridge, so many kinds of them, see here to get my point! Click to see how many

The purpose is to connect!  So why are the governments doing everything possible to disconnect us?
The media is, in my opinion, the dominant spark at "full speed ahead" aimed at the sheeple.  This quote by Winston Churchill makes the point.  "A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on."

Life is a journey, and we all want to live in peace with happiness for our loved ones; we travel along, we arrive at a bridge; before we cross, be careful to know what is on the other end of the bridge.  (The connection)  These days do your research, don't blindly cross that bridge!  And above all, pray!  "My longing for truth was a single prayer." ~Edith Stein

As we begin to cross the bridge, it may seem gloomy, dark, and full of wonder; what will we find as we connect to the other side of life?
"We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light." ~Plato

Prayer is light, don't do it alone, don't just follow along AND "Do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself.  Let the day's own trouble be sufficient for the day."  Jesus Christ



Ragtag Daily Prompt, Weekly Prompt

Interesting Wall Post — No! Not a wall poster a post!

The prompts are so delicious I wish I had the time to address them one by one.  However, sometimes I can't think of something worthy, just silly stuff, and yes, I do silly stuff occasionally and enjoy reading it as well.
Today I don't have my "silly" hat on, so I researched the word "Wall." Interesting word (wall) a word that takes you through various paths.   During my exploring around I found this interesting quote that reminds me of today's politics, and yet at the same time, it was religious, at least to me!

RDP Tuesday asks today what we save?  I like to save exciting quotes; this one below is a saver for me by Haruki Murakami, a Japanese author.  He was born in 1949;  there is much to read about him on the Internet; and below is one of his quotes I chose to  SAVE AND post for the "Weekly Prompts Weekend challenge."   

************


“If there is a hard, high wall and an egg that breaks against it, no matter how right the wall or how wrong the egg, I will stand on the side of the egg. Why? Because each of us is an egg, a unique soul enclosed in a fragile egg. Each of us is confronting a high wall. The high wall is the system which forces us to do the things we would not ordinarily see fit to do as individuals . . . We are all human beings, individuals, fragile eggs. We have no hope against the wall: it’s too high, too dark, too cold. To fight the wall, we must join our souls together for warmth, strength. We must not let the system control us — create who we are. It is we who created the system. (Jerusalem Prize acceptance speech, JERUSALEM POST, Feb. 15, 2009)”
― Haruki Murakami

American Thinker — the sky is falling!

The Devil’s World

"William Golding (of Lord of the Flies fame) wrote an essay titled “Thinking as a Hobby” in which he outlined what he saw as the three stages of human thought. The first stage, he pointed out, wasn’t really thinking at all, but rather emoting about whatever information (or disinformation) parades through a brain’s synapses. This level of “thought” takes no actual knowledge, uses logic sparingly, if at all, and produces nothing but anger, bitterness, and only an occasional tickle of amusement. The second stage of thinking is actual, rational thinking, but only goes so far as to list the problems, to recognize the difficulties, to make the diagnosis. It is overwhelmingly negative -- the sky is falling, the sky is falling!

This is where most news commentary stops. Rarely do they dig deep into possible solutions and the defense of those proposed solutions. This level of thought requires a positive outlook, a strong sense of optimism and the courage to follow through.  It requires creativity, knowledge of history, science, logic, economics, and rhetoric. It requires self-discipline. On the other hand, the negative woe-is-me level is easy; it’s a testimony to the sinful, complaining nature of man.

Man is naturally a whiner and so is the Devil."

Share your World

A New Year, what’s next?

One good reason to participate in this challenge known as Share-your-world is to allow you to examine your conscience, a big something for me!

See the questions by clicking above to share your world. We want to know!

For New Year’s Eve, I will be sleeping at my age but will awake slightly when I hear the much younger generation celebrating with what they call making as much noise as possible. Jan 1, 2022, I will attend Holy Mass, a Holy Day described on the Traditional Catholic calendar. 

Next year, let us all pray God will give us all the following year. His patience is incredible; perhaps He will only purify the world as He did in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah.

The greatest lesson I learned is that I don’t need to wear that mask everywhere as in 2020. Grateful too, that most people if not all in my area also figured that out!  

Weekend Writing Prompt

Is There a Fork in Your Road?

Decisions, decisions if you truly can’t decide, why not stop and pray to the only One True God. Try it, you might be surprised.

Who is the One True God? Who showed us how to carry our cross, who lived a life of humility. Who but God could rise from the dead, and no one, not even the Jews in His day denied it. Humility; fighting for Truth.
