Those of you living where winter includes cold temperatures and maybe snow may not want to hear this, but the sun is still shining very brightly where I am in Central Coast of California. The rainy season has not yet begun.
I'm using snowy pix of where I used to live in Michigan as a desktop on one monitor to remind me to be grateful for where ever I find myself. Because I loved the beauty of Midwest seasons while I was there, even when snowbound and cold, or hot and full of mosquitoes. And I love the California coast just as much, even though its beauties are different.
Not that I'm short of things to complain about in either setting, of course, which is why starting the day with a list of things to be grateful for helps set a better tone, LOL. I am especially grateful for BellaOnline and the chance to write, and for the readers (you) who make the site what it is: a meeting place by women, for women, aimed at making the world a better place in which to live and grow.
The latest article from the Baha'i site at BellaOnline.com is a quick explanation of the Nineteen Day Feast. For Bahá'ís, this meeting forms the basis for community building, and building a better world is an important part of what the religion is about.
What is Bahá'í Feast?
The Nineteen Day Feast is the monthly devotional, consultative and social meeting of the Bahá'í Community.
