All I'm going to say is, if you don't like the taste of "light" products and thought brie cheese with the delicious, edible rind couldn't get any better, try President's new Brie Light. It has "50% less fat & 30% fewer calories." BUT, mmm, best of all, it TASTES BETTER than the original! Of course, all I had to go with it at the moment was apple juice. Still--the label said "not from concentrate" . . . Cheers!

Cartwheels on Steroids

I did promise a couple of friends that I'd do cartwheels on their front lawns when I am well again. Now I'm on steroids. Wonder if it will make any difference. Ha. I also have an inhaler to take with me to school. My doctor sent the "release" after he saw me today, so I'm going back tomorrow.
A nice cup of coffee at 6:15 and look out, kids!

The Flame of Burning Love

Although I didn't attend church this morning, I was deeply moved in reading this little book from Fall River Press: Mother Teresa, Her Essential Wisdom.

"The sunshine of God's love . . . the hope of eternal happiness . . . the flame of burning love. Easter is this joy. However, you cannot have joy without sacrifice. That is why Good Friday comes before Easter."

"Never let anything so fill you with sorrow as to make you forget the joy of Christ risen."

"I love all religions but I am in love with my own. If people become better Hindus, better Muslims, better Buddists by our acts of love, then there is something else growing there. They come closer and closer to God. When they come closer, they have to choose . . . Gandhi once said that if Christians lived according to their faith, there would be no more Hindus left in India."

"To smile at someone who is sad; to visit, even for a little while, someone who is lonely; to give someone shelter from the rain with our umbrella; to read something for someone who is blind; . . . to write a letter or take the mail for someone, or bring a flower to somebody, or wash clothes for somebody, or clean the house--small things, but God sees everything great."

"Today somebody is suffering, today somebody is in the street, today somebody is hungry . . . today somebody is lonely."

Good Friday

John 16:33 (KJV) "These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world."

John 16:33 (NIV) "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."

John 16:33 (NLT) "I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world."
