my dad is good. a good one, now. he was at some sort of church gathering and they all had to talk about what they were personally doing to make the world a better place. I have no idea what my dad said. but what he recounted was a husband/father guy who stood up in the crowd of several hundred and talked about how he had decided that it was his mission to make sure his kids and wife all started their days in happiness and peace. He was taking charge of the mornings, making lunches, taking the 'rush' out of the breakfast scene and by creating these swirling oasises (oasies? idonno) of peace, sending them happily along their merry way, he was potentially changing the world for the better.
so, right on.
of course, the cynic in me was scREACHING ... they're already in school?!!where the hell have you been til now? what the hell?!
and then, i stopped screaching and thought about how nice it was and how simple it all is. to relax, to look around and have some faith that it is all so simple. what is good is really what we have going on. we are where we are meant to be, doing what we are meant to be doing. what we are Meant for? you have to sort that out for yourselves, as I have no idea... but i've been digging around and looking it up. its evidently not on facebook, though you can get messages from God there. seriously, check it out. you can.
i'm really out of my mind bored with blogging and need some impulsive inspirations. I'm not sure that my posting randomly and impetuously is the best answer to my selfexpression.
but i'm a plugger.

i'm going off to hum the simplicity song. . .
you know, 'tis a gift to be simple.. tis a gift to be free...tis a gift to come down where we ought to be...and when we find ourselves in a place just right.. to bow and to bend shall be our delight...

I think we should sit and have coffee and knit stuff sometime.

'Tis the gift to have friends and a true friend to be,
'Tis the gift to think of others not to only think of "me",
And when we hear what others really think and really feel,
Then we'll all live together with a love that is real.

Thank you for sharing how you really feel. 'Tis truly a gift to be simple, but that doesn't make it easy.

If I can get messages from god, then I am going to rethink this facebook boycott thing I've got going.
Then again, isn't god already in all of us.
Now I'm really confused.
