PEOPLE OF POSSIBILITY
I love people of possibility, people who dive in and make things happen. They have an energy and enthusiasm that is contagious, and people love being around them. They see possibilities everywhere they look. And everyone loves having people of possibility on their team at work and in their parish.

But there are also people of impossibility. To these people nothing seems possible. They are negative and filled with discouragement. Their attitude also be contagious. They can be sarcastic and cynical; they discourage others and belittle every idea that points towards new possibilities. People avoid people of impossibility.

As children of God and Christians, and particularly as Catholics, we are called to be people of possibility. We should be contagiously hopeful about God’s plans for our lives and the world.

This hope—the hope of a joyful Christian—is needed in society today more than ever. What are three ways you can bring hope to other people this month? I invite you to pray about this challenge, so God can empower you to become a powerful ambassador of hope and encouragement.

Everyone needs to be encouraged from time to time.

On the best of days, I am dangerous in a kitchen. That doesn't stop me from going in there (mores the pity) but be warned. Some days are just plain "eat out" days and I sure missed the boat on this one. Setting the table. check. Meal prepared. check. Serving time. check. All's going well. THEN. The hot dogs started to burn. The fan botton over the stove decided to hide. The hot pad with baked bean residue fell onto the HOT burner. Smoke and smoldering fabric erupted. Oh, and the microwave door was open. Naturally, as I turned to throw the burning hot pad into the sink, I knocked myself silly. Some days it just doesn't pay to cook.

Which Poet Are You?

You got: Pablo Neruda
A wise one, you pass out sage advice that is most wonderful because of its simplicity. You also excel at the art of love. When you fall, you fall truly, madly, deeply. A great diplomat, you have a grace and ease that settles disputes and brings people together. It's as if you were on fire from within. The moon lives in the lining of your skin.

I was actually thinking of my own training and experiences in comparison to some of the diversified persons I follow!

June 4, 2011, Krista and Adrian had their first date at Patterson's Apricot Festival.  Now it's festival weekend time again and they are celebrating the 4th anniversary of their first date and life is changing.  They're married now and baby Sebastian is 10 months old today (May 30, 2015).  Little Mr. Stink Eye just woke up from a nap so he's not feeling too charming just yet.

Story
Introduction
I know what is important to me. I know all the roads not taken and how these roads have played out in my real life. The end results are often so different from my dreams, that I've finally come to the understanding that dreams are just starting points after all.
Bragging rights
2.) Back from mission and travels into 19C history. Feel very changed. My blog will show some of this change. 1.) Survived the first few years of retirement. Now I'm hitting the road to pursue a mission. Gone in January 2014. Back in May, sometime. Occasional updates from the road throughout.
