None of what we have thought, said, or done need be wasted. Both the good and the bad can be profited by. We learn by all life's experiences.
12/31/10 How quickly another year has gone by. If you look back over the past year and ring in all the blessings, do you see all the wondrous things God has done? How has His grace, joy, and love truly touched your life? To make an end is to create a new beginning laced with opportunity. Until you commit your goals to paper, you have intentions that are seeds without good soil. Have a Happy & Healthy New Year!
12/30/10 As we get ready for the new year, what are you doing to accomplish those changes your desire? Resolutions often turn into resistance, as there is a part of you that may be resistant to the change you would like to make. We are unaware of these thoughts, beliefs, and feelings that are constricting us. Focus on what may be restricting you? Keep an open mind and an open heart to look with love, guiding your soul’s purpose.
12/29/10 First we have to believe, and then we believe. Many aspirations are within our grasp if we keep on stretching. This is not the time you stop believing; there is no luxury in skepticism. So keep on believing that you have the passion, intelligence, creativity, wisdom, and depth to find that quiet center of solace, serenity, and strength necessary to create and sustain an authentic life. Every day is a prayer. Believe and all is possible!
One of the greatest accomplishments is to be yourself in a constantly changing world that wants you to be something else.
12/28/10 Have you ever found that the person you had nothing in common with really had the same issues and problems as you did on some level? It is as if our different lives are in essence the same gift, wrapped in an infinite variety of wrappings, ribbons, and bows. The truth is no one has it easy, and we are all learning something of value. Honor the differences in all your wrappings and the gift of life inside.
12/27/10 In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God. If we trust Him completely, we will rejoice and pray without ceasing. We give thanks in everything because everything we have is His. It is easy to forget that Truth. Don’t let grumpiness replace gratitude. Today, view everything that happens as being part of God’s will for your life. Now go out and make a snow angelJ
12/26/10 We have within us all the tools to navigate our way through life, but most of the time may not be aware of their presence until we turn inward. We need practice in order to feel the connection with the Divine source, and to become “still” long enough to feel the flow and move with it. Gaining a deeper perspective by slowing down will grant you greater awareness and joy in your daily dance with life.
Silent Night, Holy Night...Blessed is the season that wraps us all in a conspiracy of love. Unspeakably wise, & wisely speechless.
12/25/10 The miracle of Christmastime is bringing God close to you in starlit wonder full of mystery. Christmas is a state of mind that originated in the heart of God and is completed only when it reaches the heart of man. On Christmas, you can make people forget the past with a present. Love Divine.
12/24/10 Home is ever near. We’ll drink hot chocolate and put the angel high above us. Hearts return no matter what we do, and love will build a bridge to new memories we’ll share with generations to come. Love was born on this night with snowflakes and dreams, bells and beauty everywhere. Families draw near to find joy in the birth; waiting, hoping, believing.... home!
Pass along a few sneezy blessings today. Prayers go up and blessings come down; rain some blessings over another and you will be washed with fortune yourself.
12/23/10 Did you know that when you bless others you bless yourself? Is it just a habit to say “God bless you”, or do you really mean those words? What would our world be like if everyone was blessed by the presence of others (not presents from others)? We are made of love and light and goodness, and part of a greater whole. The blessings come in feeling the Oneness with our fellows, as they are just the mirrors of our own true nature. May we all come to know how beautiful a world would be.
12/22/10 Abe Lincoln wanted to put life in his years, not just add years to his life. So, if we take care of the moments doing the right thing (God’s will), the years will take care of themselves. All the money in the world can’t buy back those important days or pleasures. You simply have to be there to experience them. Don’t delay any longer. Happiness awaits you in the mystery of your surprises!

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".
