New Semester Starts Tomorrow – Serene Thoughts Tonight

Last gallery of Serenity as the challenge of the week will change Friday.

Rainee of All About Words blog was correct in her comment  “Isn’t it interesting how often water, nature, children and pets feature in Serenity? Might be something powerful to remember here”


Peaceful, Calm, Untroubled- all sound good to me

Serenity - continued.  Finding photos to go with this week’s theme has been satisfying. Thanks for looking at today’s gallery of images that feel peaceful in a variety of ways.


Top Commenter Shares Link about the Serenity Prayer

If you follow the blog, you’ve seen Stef’s smiling gravatar and you’ve read her thoughtful comments.

She’s the author of Three Daily Delights blog.

This week’s theme is SERENITY and after looking at the gallery of photographs, Stef was prompted  to add this link in the comments yesterday. Although I’d heard and seen the prayer many times over the years, I learned a lot about the Serenity Prayer from reading it, I thought it was good to share. I always liked the line about the ‘wisdom to know the difference” Here is the link to the article 5 Timeless Truths From The Serenity Prayer That Offer Wisdom In The Modern Age 

And the article is correct about almost everyone knowing the beginning of the prayer, but not the second part so much-

“Whether or not you believe in God or an afterlife, and whether or not the prayer’s ending — a vision of being “supremely happy with Him forever in the next” — appeals to you or not, there’s something universal in the prayer’s quiet celebration of understanding our own potential, our own limits, and our capacity for transcendence.”

Thanks Stef for sharing.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Yellow

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Yellow.”

Yes, they said they threw us a curveball with the challenge for yellow right in the midst of silver and red and green holiday colors.  No lemons available in the house.
