12/31/13 Some years ask questions and some give answers. The questions are diamonds you hold in the light. Study your lifetime and you will see different colors from the same treasured jewel. Life is precious and priceless, and you make a difference to someone. Look back and see all the accumulated experiences that have made you one of God’s most precious gems and blessings! The answers are within you!
12/30/13 Emerson said to write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year. Don’t begin the new year with a fresh start on old habits. Stick to living one day at a time being the best you can be! Open the book of Opportunity, and make a resolve to find every one.
12/29/13 Confucius said, “Respect yourself and others will respect you.” Always respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you or gives you joy. When you are content to simply be your authentic self, without comparing yourself to others, everyone will respect you. Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than you! Suess
12/28/13 New beginnings are sometimes disguised as painful endings. There are many angels among us disguised as ordinary people, living ordinary lives. Blessings can be disguised as pain first. Everyone has a disguised power within that needs to be identified, developed, and brought forward to the world. You may be the angel in disguise carrying these blessings!
12/27/13 Don’t sit on the sidelines of life anymore! There is a tremendous amount of potential inside each person waiting to be tapped. Stop dwelling on your fears, and instead dwell on God’s goodness. Resist fear, and embrace everything God has in store for your life in 2014!
12/26/13 Sometimes the most wonderful time of year turns into a “blue” holiday. There is hope. Our expectations can get in the way of a good time. When we are unable to SEE (Sleep, Eat, and Exercise), many normal situations turn into obstacles to overcome! Avoid toxic people. Make your own traditions, and turn stress to serenity. Find yourself before 2014 by losing yourself in service to others!
12/25/13 God is giving. Always giving. Not just on one day do His gifts arrive, but constantly, day by day, hour by hour! Christmas happens with snow-covered trees on mountainsides. God’s gifts arrive in the seasons with nature’s mystical and magical design. He sends constant Christmas beauty to us all, but only if we have the vision.
12/24/13 T’was the night before Christmas… Yuletide excitement is a potent caffeine, no matter what your age. Tonight we all smile a little easier and act a little nicer. For a few hours out of the whole year, we are the people we always hoped we would be! The magic wand of Christmas waves in wonder, peace, and youth.
12/23/13 Every second is a chance to turn your life around. May the blessings of peace, hope, love, and faith be your gifts this season of miracles and wonder. Give the light of love to those who need it most, and it will be returned to you tenfold. Allow the unexpected to happen by living fully in the present. Santa watches…
12/22/13 Once again it is that wonderful time of year, a deeply religious time that each observes in their own way, by going to the mall of their choice. Make the best of gifts around the tree be the presence of a loving family all wrapped up in each other. Honor this season in the heart and keep it lit all year! Keep the wonder of Xmas alive.

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".
