Why is it that bad things happen to good people? We’ve all asked that question from time to time but when it hits home it carries even more meaning. We struggle to understand the logic in it but soon we find that we just are not meant to understand everything that happens in life. We hear our troubles and problems in life will make us stronger, better people. These statements are so easy to make when you are on the outside looking in but when you are in the midst of it – it’s not so easy. Rephrasing the first sentence I think it wiser for us to ask, what our role is when bad things happen... Read More

I was sitting in a church auditorium recently, listening to a preacher talk about the power words have on us all, both written and spoken, and the great impact they convey to those around us. It was a well articulated speech, causing me to think about how large a role words play in our lives.

Words are extremely powerful— carrying the strength to heal or wound, encourage or discourage, speak truth or deceive, praise or criticize. In fact, the Bible says that death and life are in the power of the tongue. Since that’s true, controlling what we say and how we say it is one of the most... Read More

What lies ahead? What’s in your future? Are you ready to take the plunge and find out? Are you really ready to move forward? Sometimes that’s a difficult question to answer. You may say “yes” without so much as a hesitation, until you think about all it requires. For a moment, imagine yourself at the end of a high diving board looking down. You may have the jitters, maybe even some fear and dread mixed in. You may also experience excitement and wonder. Logically you have two pretty simple options. You can be brave and jump or you can shimmy back to the ladder the way you came... Read More

Today as I was looking at Wanda our lovely Hibiscus tree. I got to thinking about her seeds. Now work with me here okay?

Imagine for a minute that your mind was a greenhouse. Your greenhouse needs to be taken care of and managed to produce well right? OK so now consider that your thoughts are seeds. Now, as we have found with Wanda’s seeds – some are healthy and some are not. The healthy ones we will keep and nurture into healthy lovely plants. The not so healthy ones will be tossed away. We should be doing this with our thoughts. Take a good thought, a pleasing thought,... Read More

While sitting in my favorite deli recently, I couldn’t help but overhear this statement coming from the next table, “My husband has never made enough money for me to be happy, I wish he’d change jobs or do something else.” The words were spoken in a disappointing, almost angry tone.

This touches on the vast majority of recent surveys and psychological reports pointing to the fact that people are much happier, at least temporarily, when their mates or companions make more money. While listening, I also thought about the image she might see her husband in. Maybe she no longer perceived... Read More

The statement speaks the truth as both will be challenged many times throughout your life. The fact that you are interested in this book or any other of it’s genre is a clear sign that deep within yourself you are not fulfilled or at peace. Think of it as taking your first steps to changing your mind, therefore changing your life.

After careful and honest reflection of your past, you must accept your responsibility for your part in it, move on taking the knowledge gained from it. To begin, set up achievable goals, reach out for guidance and with a strong, positive mind begin your journey... Read More

Being tender, open and "real" is beautiful...I do question why many people are unable to live with this part of their soul...instead living to be what others expect them to be... It is our most sacred gift from God. When your heart and soul are open, you leave your ego behind. It no longer matters what insignificant "should be, should not be, probably was, probably wasn't" ...is entering into your thoughts. If we are aware, we will always redirect our thoughts and heart to a higher place...And yes, I pray everyday to be able to live my life in this way...Sometimes I am successful... Read More
