As a New Week Dawns: On Lessons On Life & Other Thoughts

The International Space Station just flew over our Town.   This is as Northern California suffered its' worst Earthquake in 25 years.   Such brings into focus as to what are the priorities and what should be the focus.

As the Space Station moved on checking out the heavens and the Earth, it truly brought things into focus about what's important--and this little clip courtesy of the team @ Simple Truths was ever so timely as a new week dawns here in "Outsiders".    The priorities are critical and the need to remember it is ever so...as it is ever so vital to also not forget forgiveness as Jonathan Lockwood Huie reminded us not so long ago: 



Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
...
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned.
- attributed to St. Francis of Assisi

A wise man will make haste to forgive,
because he knows the true value of time,
and will not suffer it to pass away in unnecessary pain.
- Samuel Johnson

Today, I say yes to forgiving.
I commit to being for-giving love and for-giving compassion in all areas of my life.
– Sheri Rosenthal


This is a tough sentiment to adopt especially as one is witness to the horror of Syria & Iraq.  But, as Gandhi Ji remidned us, right always prevails over might. 

As the great Diane Nyad always reminds us: Onward as we embrace this "lesson in life":
