#16 Let’s Face it…Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists.

(From The Introduction in A Course in Miracles by the Foundation for Inner Peace) Love List On this beautiful Valentine’s Day 2017, time gives us an opportunity to reflect and embrace love.

# 15 Let’s face it…As a society, we still can not quite figure out what to do about profanity.

Littles vs Bigs / Myth #3 “If punished for using profane language, Littles will not use profane language.” Oh, hell-to-the-no regarding this myth.
