Live in the Now


It's raining as this is being written and the air is chilly.

It's the kind of weather that's comforting, at times, but evokes sadness at others.

There's so much turmoil in the world and bad news fills many newspaper articles.

A lot of people dear to me are going through hard times.

It's definitely easier to see one's blessings by just looking around.

So this day, this blessed Sunday,  plan to live the best life possible in the present moment.

All problems eventually have a solution so why worry about them?

I think living in the now is a key to much happiness and inner peace.

About like you, Susan, only the rain has stopped here. Cleared yesterday to make beautiful day and sun is up gently this morning. So much stuff in my life and I am tired but grateful...a widowed friend who is sad is coming for a deck breakfast this morning with DH and me. Fruit, muffins, and tea...simple for it is the companionship she needs this morning. I hope the sun will shine for you tomorrow.

It's true, a rainy day can bring up many emotions. I think a rainy Sunday is especially evocative of thoughts of family and things past. It is a reflective kind of day and the rain makes it more so.

Mostly I am thankful for the rain; how green and lush the foliage and flowers look. We have been away from home a lot in the last 2 weeks, so I am grateful for a rainy day to be inside and do some inside things.

Hello from Spain: I agree with you. I live in the present. I do not make plans for the future because fate always breaks plans. Happy Sunday.We keep in touch

I definitely thinking living in the moment is best as we never know what tomorrow holds. Sometimes we do have to step back and quietly reflect while others are going through turmoil. Days will come again where normality sets in and joy abounds. Best wishes, Tammy

I ,like you Susan, have many friends going through health problems and I'm very grateful that I'm ok for the time being...very grateful. No rain here but yesterday we did get a five minute sprinkle and had some clouds overhead so not too much sunshine but this Sunday morning the sun is out again and I love it.

Susan love your flower. Wish it was cool and rainy here - it is so hot. What am I feeling right now - well I am watching television, but I am kind of tired - toying with the idea of a nap! lol

I so agree about the overwhelming sadness, sickness and sorrow in the news, with friends. Each day my prayer list gets longer.
In the Midwest the weather is crazy. All day the sun goes away and then shines brightly half hour later. It seems we have experienced sunrise and sunset several times in one day.

This is beautiful, Susan. Enjoy your rain. I wish it would rain here - it's getting hot and supposed to be in the 100's next week! Yes, so much sadness in the world, but I try to remember all the blessings that come our way.

Have a very nice week ahead.

love, ~Sheri
