We believe in miracles, how about you?

The only way to live is to accept each minute as an unrepeatable miracle.

MARGARET STORM JAMESON

And I believe Einstein said, you have 2 ways of looking at life as though nothing is a miracle or everything is.  We at CCR like to look at everything as if it were a miracle.  Miraculous!!

A little sumthin' sumthin' for you at the "C"

If you want to cure the world, don't emanate fear - emanate love.

 

Ram Dass

 

 

I have heard it said that hate is not the absence of love, fear is.  Hate is a desperate cry for love.  We often fear that which we do not know.  How about learning something new this week?  How about reaching out and learning about the person you see everyday, but never speak to? Someone new perhaps who isn’t like you, but different.  We need not fear our differences, but embrace them for what they are.   Neither of us are right or wrong, just different…and different is never something we should be afraid of.
