Faith is Nourishment~ Buddhist thought for the Day


"On life's journey faith is nourishment, 
virtuous deeds are a shelter, 
wisdom is the light by day
and right mindfulness is the protection by night. 
If a man lives a pure life,
nothing can destroy him." 
~Buddha

It's been a whirlwind, in and out of town
for both the most difficult of family times, to the best of times and back again. 
Right after my father-in-love passed, 
I flew to Park City to join my father's birthday bash/family reunion in progress, 
then back this week for the extended family memorial service. 
An emotional roller coaster to say the least. 

I liked this quote because it exemplified exactly what everyone has been saying 
about my father in law. 
He is still with us.

Love leaves an imprint for life, and beyond my dear. Death I believe is just the other side where love resides FOREVER.

PEACE to you on your journey sweet Kirsten. Anita

"If a man lives a pure life, nothing can destroy him"....oh, I love that saying. Your father-in-law sounds like he was a special man.
