Chapter 13, Page 31, Book13




 All of life comes down to the many wonderful choices we make each day. Let's use them to choose a lifetime of love, joy, peace, happiness, goodness, delight, and oneness with God for ourselves. Let's use them to bless the world, help others, and bring truth, joy, love, and light to everyone we meet. 


Joseph J. Mazzella

Life is filled with many mysteries.

The flowers pictured in my post today are called Mystery Flowers.  In the Spring, leaves come up and then they die down and come August this flower comes up on a long stalk without any leaves.  They are a mystery.

I think that perhaps people are the most mysterious things on earth, We are special and unique. There is really no one quite like you or me. No one has our looks, our fingerprint, our personality, our gifts and talents, our likes and dislikes or our way of doing things. Every person is complex and fragile. 

Love is the central mystery of life. You can’t see inside the heads of other people or into their hearts.  You can barely know your own thoughts.



Life is a mystery to be lived, not a problem to be solved.


 Soren Kierkegaard


A mystery will always have bits of the unknown. I don't think that we need to have all the answers. 



Life is short. Life is strange. Life is beautiful. life is a mystery.

Just to be on the journey and walk with someone we love is one of the greatest gifts we can give and receive.

Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.

Dr Martin Luther King Jr.

Kind of like the wind - you know it's there, but you cannot see it. Or a baby being born...

Have a great Labor Day.

Well lady you just answered a riddle that has bothered us. I just walked back to the bedroom to share with my girl, and she laughed just as I said,"You know those flowers."....
"YOu are reading MA, right?" I said yep.
We saw some of those unique flowers edging a farm near Wilmington, Ohio. They were on a tall stem and wondered if they were even real. Now we know.THANKS! (smile)
