Arise, shine; for your light has come,
and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.

For darkness shall cover the earth,
and thick darkness the peoples;
but the Lord will arise upon you,
and his glory will appear over you.

Nations shall come to your light,
and kings to the brightness of your dawn.

Isaiah 60:1-3
New Revised Standard Version

Lakota Prayer

Great Mystery,
teach me how to trust
my heart,
my mind,
my intuition,
my inner knowing,
the senses of my body,
the blessings of my spirit.
Teach me to trust these things
so that I may enter my Sacred Space
and love beyond my fear,
and thus Walk in Balance
with the passing of each glorious Sun.

My Prayer

The simple things in life, I crave
A mind that's pure, a heart that's brave.
A friend, a book, a dog, a tree
These are things I ask of Thee.

A friend to hold my hand in trial
A book to ease my thoughts awhile
A dog for silent company
A tree to bring me close to Thee!

_Gwen Taft

"Take care of your body as if you were going to live forever.
Take care of your soul as if you were going to die tomorrow."

Personal Information:
My name is Oceana, pronounced (O-SHE-ON-UH).

Other Information:
I'm on a kind of sabbatical, because I need to relax from all the stressors going on right now. So I turned off all of my comments. My aunt has died recently, and it's caught us all off guard. Please pray for our family, that we have some peace. Thank you so much! God bless all of you!

    Thank you very much for your comment on my blog. I was able to bring the 13 year old, Michelle, along to the Seder. The 11 year old did not want to go so she stayed home.

    Oh, I'm so sorry, Auna. I know how hard it is. Losing Sammy was the worst time of my whole life, and yes, coming home was the absolute hardest part. There were nights I'd go to bed and just pray I wouldn't wake up. I'd be disappointed the following morning upon opening my eyes. But I made it through, and I know you will, too. It just takes a lot of time.

    Did you listen to my two song recommendations for your playlist? I still think of him when I hear them.

    If you can get a new doctor, yes, do it. A second opinion never hurts, I mean, assuming you can afford it.

    OMG! How have I never noticed the skate Goodies before? That's AWESOME!!!

    The talk went well with the daycare lady. He told her we weren't doing it, because it was poorly planned. She agreed to let us pick him up by 5:30, but he's been careful about not going until after 8, and I honestly tend to get there between 4:50 and 5:10, so we aren't really ever exceeding the 45 hours a week. She was still counting next to his name for a week or so, and THAT was ticking me off, but she hasn't been doing that for a several weeks now.

    I made a status update about it after it happened. It wasn't worth a whole other blog.

    I hope you're doing okay after Milton's passing. I'm so sorry you have to deal with this. He was a sweet boy.

    Auna, thank you for the message. That’s shocking about the pipe breaking and causing so much damage, but I was amazed that it was installed in 1915! Wow! It’s lasted over a hundred years! Hope it’s all cleaned up soon. Take care.
