Too Good Not to Share. . .

“A Secret Scrolls message from Rhonda Byrne
Creator of The Secret

From The Secret Daily Teachings

Pure love has no conditions or boundaries. Love does not restrain itself or hold back. Love gives all the time and doesn't ask for anything in return. Love is a continuous flow without any limits. And all of this is inside you.

May the joy be with you,

Rhonda Byrne

Yup, that’s good stuff, no matter what you believe.

Canadian and U.S. Holidays – What’s a Girl To Do?

So I live in Canada. And even if I’m not Canadian by birth, I’ve lived here long enough to feel Canadian.

I celebrate Canadian holidays, which, for the most part, are the same as those in my motherland, the U.S.A.

Being a ‘mercan, born and bred, I feel I have the right to celebrate the holidays of my homeland, right?

Really, it’s not much of a stretch. Canada celebrated Victoria day, or the May-2-4 weekend, as it’s commonly called here. It was last weekend.

Today is Memorial Day in the U.S. But I’m not living there. So really, I guess I shouldn’t celebrate, right? It’s a normal workday here. . .

But I think I will take the day off anyway. Because when it comes time for me to take my oath of Canadian citizenship, I want to keep my U.S. rights as well.

And I certainly don’t want to take the change that I will lose my U.S. citizenship because I didn’t follow their holiday traditions.

Yup, that settles it. X-Box 360 anyone?

Quebec Fires – Smoke Settles Over the Ottawa Valley

Please keep Quebec in your prayers for rain and safety for the firefighters and those face losing their homes! Also that the smoke clears from the Valley soon . . .

This is why my house smells like a backyard barbecue. The smoke has drifted and the whole of the Ottawa Valley is covered in smoke. It's so thick here I actually called the fire department, who told me the smoke is from these fires in Quebec. Please send some prayers for the firefighters and people that are in danger of losing their homes. We need RAIN - like NOW!

How she didn't win is beyond me - even though I like Lee Dewyze and am not sad that he won - Crystal Bowersox ROCKS. I will so buy her album. . . watch and enjoy.

“A Secret Scrolls message from Rhonda Byrne
Creator of The Secret

From The Secret Daily Teachings

Look for the gifts in everything, especially when you are facing what appears to be a negative situation. Everything that we attract causes us to grow, which means that ultimately everything is for our own good.

Adjusting to a new path and a new direction will require new qualities and strengths, and these qualities are always exactly what we need to acquire in order to accomplish the great things ahead in our life.

May the joy be with you,
