Mardi Gras is officially over in New Orleans. The weather was beautiful and the atmosphere seemed festive. I viewed the parades from the comfort of my living room. The local news stations do an incredible job of live streaming the parades and sights that are not rated X. Our Mardi Gras menu included hot dogs with chili, white beans with sausage, king cake, chips and sodas. We had an enjoyable time. Growing up in New Orleans all we knew were parades and lots of them. We lived one block off of historic St. Charles Avenue so parades were like breathing. What I didn't know as a young child was that not everyone had Fat Tuesday celebrations in their home towns. For most people it was just another Tuesday. My brother Kermit met a tourist today who took a picture with him. No doubt the words on her sign resonated with him as they did with me. Well it was anything but another Tuesday for those of us blessed to live in New Orleans. Yeah ya right!
WE ARE MAGNETS DRAWING OR REPELLING PEOPLE AND SITUATIONS INTO AND AWAY FROM OUR LIVES. LOSING FOCUS MAKES IT DIFFICULT TO OBTAIN DIRECTION. LONLINESS AND CONFUSION CREEP IN AND WE FEEL AS THOUGH GOD HAS FORGOTTEN ABOUT US AS OUR PRAYERS SEEMINGLY GO UNANSWERED. GET OUTTA UR WAY IS AN INTROSPECTIVE JOURNEY AND INNER QUEST TO CONSISTENTLY SEE, FEEL AND KNOW GOD'S PRESENCE IN THE MIDST OF LIVING LIFE. SO GET OUTTA UR WAY AND EXPERIENCE THE BLISSFUL LIFE YOU WERE CREATED TO ENJOY.
