December's theme in "Daily Gratitude" is harmony.
How many lives and billions of dollars have been wasted on the oxymoron of "peace-keeping force"?
Switching gears, let's look at personal harmony. This idea comes from Rev. Dr. Dennis Merritt Jones. You are the king or queen of your own personal monarchy... "It is the domain of your own life, your mind and body, which means the only inhabitant is you. You are the ruler of your own empire... How does your personal monarchy measure up? What kind of ruler are you? Do you rule yourself with a hard hand and judgmental heart, or do you treat yourself with kindness, generosity of spirit, reverence and respect? The next time you enter the sacred gates of your own mind and heart, be wise, strong and loving--and long live the queen/king."
It's good to be queen!
