In my last blog post, we used a beautiful painting: "Water Is Life." We can tell you firsthand… it certainly is…in many ways! Recently we had a water crisis in our house. Now our house is probably not like your house… there are more than a hundred people who live and work in our three multi-floor buildings. Did I mention… we also have a care facility?
A young woman who started a self-help group after the suicide death of her mother was impressed by the Dalai Lama, whom she met in Japan’s northeast disaster area (Tohoku), when he shared how he personally coped with the death of so many of his Tibetan friends.
Not many housewives nor businessmen join in demonstrations: that is why I was happy to meet so many in our Albany group. We went in five buses and were there to plead with New York Governor Cuomo to stop any fracking* plans for New York State.
Christmas is such a special time isn’t it? For me, it is the one time of the year when I take the opportunity to look over what has happened and to share some of the highlights with each of you. It is always difficult to pick and choose. Fortunately with the age of e-mail, I don’t have to worry about the weight of several pages and the ensuing postage!
Blessed Advent time and Christmas to each one of you who walks this sometimes bizarre but always blessed path with me. May the “One who is to come” bring you peace!
This was my second year of taking care of the Children’s Booth for our International Bazaar. This year I dressed up as a clown, and on the table I put some prayer cards and a basket to receive prayer requests.
God’s Promised Love
Again, and still
May your hope be lively!
