The Lord Is My Shepherd

TheLordismyshepherd

A little Sunday prayer to begin this lovely day!  Do you know this psalm?  It is one that my Mom taught us when we were little and we have taught our children to continue to tradition as it brings us all such peace and joy.

When I sit mindfully and present, sometimes I receive a song in my head or a prayer and this came to me this morning.  So in honor of my Mom’s bedtime ritual for us as children, I thought it was appropriate to post!

We still say this psalm with our Mom and it brings us all great peace.  May it bring you and yours peace today as well.

Shine On!

For the Joy of Candy Corn!

For the Joy of Candy Corn!

Like most people, I know candy corn isn’t a food group.  But there’s something special about it for me.  It’s a fond memory of autumn days gone by with my family.  My mom always had a candy dish filled with candy corn when we were little and we would just dip our hands in it from time to time, to gather a few and pop them into our mouths!  Sometimes, I would bite each section of color, savoring the artistic manner of eating! Ha!

Whenever I see candy corn now as an adult, that sweet memory returns.  The nostalgic ache of being a child when there wasn’t any worry about sugary snacks (as long as they were enjoyed in moderation!) nor of calories and the worry of extra pounds that in adulthood seem so hard to shed now.

Is there a fall treat which you relate to in a happy way?  Please share!  I’ll be passing the candy corn dish around…what will you bring to our nostalgia party?

Shine On!
