Sacred Life Sunday -- Five More (Really) Good Things

While creating the first post on this subject a few minutes ago at Small Reflections using Carla's borrowed idea from zena musings, I decided to use the same idea here for my Sacred Life Sunday offering. So ... here are Five MORE Really Good Things I'd like to share.

1. The first, a Zen Card from Daniel Levin on REFLECTION.

"When
the pond is still
the reflections is clear.
When
the MIND is still,
the reflection of life is clear.
Reflection
brings
clarity."

2. Laughter ... side-splitting, belly-aching, fall-on-the-floor, whole-body healing laughter!

3. Satsuma tangerines ... easy to peel, seedless, sweet, juicy, delights FREE from my sister's backyard tree ... available just two months each year in November and December. Starbuck's Christmas Blend coffee is a close second here (for time-limited treats I savor) but I've written of it before elsewhere :)

4. Free cell-to-cell minutes and long phone calls from the road when I've not seen family or friends in months and months and months. 'Tis good to catch up with loved ones.

5. Prayer ... that heals all things and brings peace that passes understanding. Faith, hope, and love are close runner-ups ... and grace fits in there too. What blessings surround and enfold us all when we take time to step back and make room for miracles.

If you haven't read
my other list at Small Reflections,
do take a minute to check out
the two links in #5 for sure ...
just because :)

Reminder: You have until December 15th to email me your answers to the

Chani and Annie
Just typing that makes me giggle for some reason ... maybe it's the rhyme?

Thanks for your comments. I appreciate you stopping by to check in and add your two cents. (What happened to the "cent sign" on computer keyboards? We used to have one on typewriters way back when dinosaurs roamed the earth. I miss it.)

Hugs and blessings,

Nice list--there's so much there, when we stop to think about it.

Thanks Karen,
The older I get, the simpler the list becomes :)

Yum! I love ALL the seasonal coffee!

Great list!

storyteller said...

Me too ... and I sometimes even stock up so I can savor these special blends during January and February also :)

I'm sorry you lost your dad this year. Those first holidays can be pretty challenging, but it looks like the consensus is to get your mom those chocolate covered cherries.

Thanks for stopping by & leaving a comment. I love your sense of humor (not to mention perspective). The post today on Spam emails had me chuckling off and on throughout the day.
Hugs and blessings,
