I am in the most dangerous
hood in America,
I want to stay in the best neighbor-hood in town----
the 'hood of gratitude,
surrender, and prayer."
"All the power I have comes from admitting my own powerlessness."
"I am well off when God is my Higher Power, and those are the good times."
"You are always safe when you are in gratitude."
"It is good to have a vision of who you want to be.
My vision is to be calm and trust in God."
"Stay in the warm pool
faith, trust, hope, and love.
That pool will be calm and safe and warm no matter what.
And if it's a really good pool,
it will also have friends in it."

Lord, I lift to You the situations of my life that concern me,
I lay my worries before You and
ask for Your mighty Intervention
to show me what's right when I can only see what's wrong.
I am determined to see the good,
so help me not to be blinded by my own
fears, doubts, wants, and preconceived ideas.
I ask You to reveal to me
Your truth in every situation.
In Jesus' name I pray.
And we know that all things work together
for good to those who love God,
to those who are the called according to His purpose.

The blue flowers are my morning glories.
The pink is ???I can't remember, but I like them.
The white flowers are part of a climatis
that takes over a corner of my porch.
(I was sick again, but I'm feeling better.)
