I thought I would re-visit Serenity this morning. Seems like these were big lessons for me this past year.
God grant me the ability to prioritize the things I cannot delegate, the courage to say no when I need to (that’s a big one), and the wisdom to know when to go home. Kind of like Kenny Roger’s song, the Gambler, “know when to fold them.”
I came home with a car full of booty! Some women go to the mall and come home with bags of shoes, clothes, accessories. I am ecstatic to come home with rocks! The entire back end of my car is full of cool “FREE” rocks. I am using them, and rock garden “xeric” plants to hold the soil on the steep slope behind my house. I am also putting Alpaca poop there (thanks to my neighbors) and I have to say – it is amazing stuff. It rained hard yesterday afternoon and everything held it’s ground. Woohoo!
So, over ten years ago the tiny little communities of Cope, Joes and Kirk, Colorado opened a beautiful community center that is still going strong today. Here is the philosophy that built a wonderful facility for their farming community.
“I can’t,” never did anything.
“I’ll try,” can do wonders.
“I will,” can perform miracles!
