Jesus is alive!

He is not here;
he has risen!
LUKE 24:6

 Word of the Day- interminable adjective :having or seeming to have no end; especially wearisomely protracted

The word was borrowed into English in the 15th century and descends from a Latin combination of the prefix in– (“not”) and the verb terminare, meaning “to terminate” or “to limit.” The word describes not only something without an actual end (or no end in sight, such as “interminable oceans”), but also events, such as tedious lectures, that drag on in such a way that they give no clear indication of ever wrapping up. Other relatives of interminable in English include terminate, determine, terminal, and exterminate.

Hayley didn’t think she would have the patience to sit through another interminable radio pledge drive without changing the station at least once.

“Garrett Richards’ first thought when he found out about his torn elbow ligament in May was to schedule Tommy John surgery as soon as possible.… Richards knew how to handle the seemingly interminable months of rehab, and he wanted to get the clock started on his return.”
Jorge L. Ortiz, USA Today, 28 Feb. 2017

It was not the feeling of completeness I so needed, but the feeling of not being empty.
Jonathan Safran Foer

We do not need to be afraid of our mind. We can go on a journey of discovery and experiment. Then we are able to play with our mental processes and develop our mental ability in wisdom and compassion.

—Martine Batchelor

Word of the Day

Pittance: a small portion, amount, or allowance; also : a meager wage or remuneration. It’s a pity when you haven’t anything but a pittance. And in fact, pity and pittance share etymological roots. The Middle English word pittance came from Anglo-French pitance, meaning “pity” or “piety.” Originally, a pittance was a gift or bequest to a religious community, or a small charitable gift. Ultimately, the word comes from the Latin pietas, meaning “piety” or “compassion.” Our words pity and piety come from pietas as well.

The helpful thought for which you look
Is written somewhere in a book.
Edward Gorey

Joy is to delight in other’s pleasure and success;
It is to cultivate the wish that all have happiness.
It is a joy one feels when they achieve it for themselves
And is the wish that they should never be deprived of it

“If you have the words, there’s always a chance that you’ll find the way. ”
Seamus Heaney

“Everything is dancing; even the molecules inside the cells are dancing. But we make our lives so heavy. We have these incredibly heavy burdens we carry with us like rocks in a big rucksack. We think that carrying this big heavy rucksack is our security; we think it grounds us. We don’t realize the freedom, the lightness of just dropping it off, letting it go.”
– Tenzin Palmo

Inspiration for the Day: Let go of whatever heavy burden you are carrying.

Bone Processing

These are some wishbones I have whiten and preserved over a period of a couple of months.   It was very fun and interesting to learn about the whole process of how to do it and it is sometime I wish to pursue further.
