My favorite outdoor event of the year has arrived; sweet peas are blooming in my backyard. Their miracle is knowing when to pop up and when to lie sleeping. The Earth is a system of cyclical miracles of which we are a part, and the intelligence of our bodies relies on it. Night follows day, and restful sleep replenishes our energy and spirit. We arise to a new beginning and get another chance to take charge of our health. Your body loves morning. Whether you’re heavy-handed on the snooze button or Miss Perky Pants, you’ll look and feel your best after an a.m. grooming routine.

Last year, the Italian-American parishioners of St. Bede the Venerable Church in La Cañada, at the urging of pastor Monsignor Jim Gehl, organized, planned and held an Italian festival tied to a healing Mass for members of the parish who were seeking special blessings for healing body and soul. The event last year was the first Italian feast ever held at St. Bede and was a huge hit with several hundred parishioners and friends attending the three Sunday Masses honoring St. Joseph, as well as the special anointing of the sick Mass.

By the time that you read this column we will have elected a new president for our nation. I’m sure there will be much rehashing of this historic election — as if we weren’t already saturated with the blah, blah, blah of the past 18 months. At the end of the evening the celebrants had helped to raise $1.6 million for the Autry National Center. Gala proceeds support the development and implementation of Native American programs and projects including saving the Southwest Museum’s extensive collection.

In 2006, La Crescenta Presbyterian Church has made a quantum leap in its involvement in mission projects. "Approximately 31 percent of the funds raised for our church in 2006 went directly to missions this year," said Pastor Andy Wilson. "In addition to our budget-appropriated missions, our members and friends have added $86,600 in off-budget mission support for a grand total of $188,000 in givings this year." That represents a 30 percent increase from 2005 and a 66 percent increase from 2001.

There's great satisfaction when the rewards for our efforts multiply. It's why I began drinking tea. What started out with sense of duty, trying to offset a cold or settle my stomach, or whatever those first few cups were for, has grown into a welcome, calming, routine part of my life. I am a tea snob. I appreciate a really good cup of tea and am delighted to know where it was grown and the properties it carries. I get excited about it. Tea is much more than we give it credit for - tea preparation alone can lower your heart rate.

I'm no longer writing the Great American Novel. It's done! I'm now in the laborious editing process. So the other day while I was reading between the lines, a bunch of excited La Cañada High School kids stormed into Starbucks partying like it's 1999. Their antics were not merely those of teens frolicking on a midday break. They were exuberant! One of the boys, Elias Defaria, gave me an encouraging hello. It was apparent that something special had transpired causing their euphoria.
