8/31/16 A turtle has to stick it's neck out to make any progress. Fear takes a backseat when we step out in faith. God's power shows up in the testing as long as we have faith in times of trouble. There is no winner's circle in life, only God waiting for us at the Finish Line.
8/30/16 God blesses those who are dependent upon Him. Self reliance is a sure fire way to live a restless life. Spiritual discontentment comes when we try to rely on our own resources to solve problems we cannot control.
8/29/16 Resume virtues are achievement based as eulogy virtues are legacy aspirations. A resume values accomplishments, and an eulogy appreciates life's values. What will people say about our moral character? What do we want from the world or what does the world want from us?
8/28/16 It is never too late to surrender to win in life. God performs amazing miracles when we step out of the way in faith. What we could not accomplish in a lifetime, God can accomplish in a moment. Miracles are like that.
8/27/16 Jung talked about "the afternoon of life". The idea is being content in the middle of our lives. The morning is over and what we did then cannot be duplicated. What was true in the "morning" of our lives will be the past when evening comes. Every afternoon is worthy of greatness.
8/26/16 It is not that someone meant to offend, but we took offense anyway. Forgiveness is not letting anything linger. The quicker we forgive, the easier it is to remove any roots of anger. The spirit of Truth lives within.
8/25/16 There is no perfection except in Love. We do the best we can with what we have been given. Change is constantly happening around us. There is courage in beginning again and knowing we are perfect in our own mundane imperfections.
8/24/16 We all have cloudy distractions in life, shadows that cast darkness to the best of our intentions. Beneath all the fear is the simple beauty of human connection. One soul extending to another, saying we've been there too.
8/23/16 Walt Whitman said he heard and beheld God in every object, yet understood God not in the least. God is the Great Mystery of our existence. He is that which has no circumference but whose center is everywhere. He is within and without.
8/22/16 When anxiety and fear knock at the corners of our innermost self, keep calm and say, "I am safe, I am happy, I am strong, and May I live with ease." The unknown dresses attractively and at the same time can appear as dark as night.

I believe everyday is a gift from our Creator. As we age, some may fear the unknown~death. People who become aware of their mortality find they have actually gained freedom to live. They have found they have an appreciation for the present. We are all here to contribute love, forgiveness, and service. As I age, I want to nourish my soul's purpose. If we are open to grace, people will appear in our lives to encourage growth of our souls. Allow me to provide daily nourishment through loving words, because joy is our birthright. I call these my daily "Truth Vitamins" for spiritual health. Join me in discovering together our inner soul purpose with "Love~that's all there is".
