Patience serves as a protection against wrongs as clothes do against cold. For if you put on more clothes as the cold increases, it will have no power to hurt you. So in like manner you must grow in patience when you meet with great wrong, and they will then be powerless to vex your mind.

Whether you know it or not, one of the most important relationships in your life is with your Soul. Will you be kind and loving to your Soul, or will you be harsh and difficult? Many of us unknowingly damage our Souls with our negative attitudes and actions or by simple neglect. By making the relationship with your Soul an important part of your life, however, by honoring it in your daily routine, you give your life greater meaning and substance. Use your experiences — all of them — as opportunities to nourish your Soul.

It depends on us… Another year lies before us like an unwritten page, an unspent coin, an unwalked road. How the pages will read, what treasure will be gained in exchange for time, or what we find along the way, will largely depend on us.

I’ve been away for a little while, off having fun with family and friends. If you’re interested in some of the details, visit me over at Life in the Bogs sometime in the next day or two. Don’t go today though, as I don’t think I’ll get to it.
