tidy soul

(remember this?)

(well...look at this. same chair. same kitten.
yes, he used to be just one stripe wide.)

Be careless in your dress if you will, but keep a tidy soul.

~ Mark Twain ~
American novelist

Keep a tidy soul. That's probably what we called being "prayed up" in my evangelical days. Make sure that your side of the street is clean--that you've looked at your stuff and taken responsibility for it and where necessary, made amends. Oh, wait. That's 12 step.

No difference.

There's the stuff between me and others. Check. The stuff between me and God. Check. The stuff between me and...me. Hmm. No less important.

Especially since we are all one.

Yeah. One love.

Hi, Wanda! Happy New Year! Great to be back from our trip and catching up with you here... Feeling jet-lagged and heart-fuzzy after a sweet Christmas, but good to be home and round blogland again now. Keep a tidy soul... I love those words for this New Year! Wishing you all the very best of love, peace and joy in 2010! :o) ((HUGS))
