Simple Things...

another year has passed...and as I look back I realize more and more how little we control, even when we think we do ...

GOD HAS A PLAN
and he's sticking to it.
although I rarely go without a new year's resolution, this year will go without a plan...without a resolution...

I WILL WAIT
I will take each day, one day, one single day at a time...
because we don't know what tomorrow will bring...we only have today...


so laugh loud, be ever so kind to everyone, hug your loved ones, often... and fall in love.. with each and every day...

Blessings to you my sweet friends,
Jo-Anne

Just this Sunday at mass our homily was all about God being so passionate about showing us his passion for us!
This year there will be no resolutions , just letting go and letting what will be! Also a lot more laughter because it really is the best medicine! I love your new magazine it is such a treasure! Jean
