Question of the Week: Are you superstitious?

I ask this question because I used to be very superstitious. But now I think superstitions are silly. Seriously, when you think about it, what does crossing fingers, finding a four-leaf clover, or carrying a rabbit's foot have to do with good luck? If anything, these "good-luck charms" sound like old forms of witchcraft to me. I understand the reasons one should not open an umbrella in the house (something might get broken) or walk under a ladder (it could fall on you) or break a mirror (you might get cut). But I don't think these incidents bring bad luck. 

I think superstitions crossed the ocean with the Irish - who happen to be a large portion of my ancestors. So, superstition was in my blood, I suppose. But a few years ago and many years of not having bad or good luck for any of the reasons listed above, I decided superstitions were not only ridiculous but also an insult to God.

On the Irish note, I also have seen the end of the rainbow a few times in our own backyard. So, for any of you who have wondered about the pot of gold theory, I can confirm that there are no pots of gold at the end of the rainbow either. The rainbow is a symbol of God's promise to never destroy the entire earth again with a flood as he had done in Noah's day.

Go, now. Enjoy the beauty of the rainbow, and find comfort in the the fact that God is in the midst when things are going good or bad. 

Have a blessed day,

Patricia

Let's Talk Simple!

My Simple Dream For years, I have had a simple dream of helping other women - mostly in the realm of crafting and transcribing audio and video files. As a woman who is advancing in years - and I'm proud of it - I want to expand that help in other areas. In 2020, at the height of the COVID 19 pandemic, I started www.SimplyMakingLife.com . Suddenly, women were being thrown into a world they were unfamiliar with and didn't have a clue how to handle their new life.  I, on the other hand, was well equipped to handle that type of world that had to shelter at home. I was a stay-at-home mom for over 20 years. I homeschooled both of my sons during that time - one for only a few years and the other from Kindergarten through high school. I worked from home and figured out what was important to do at the moment and what could wait. I have also taken online courses and have self-taught myself new skills along this, now, 30-year journey. I learned shortcuts in life that worked just as well a
