Lessons in Nature

Posted by on Feb 2, 2018 | 3 comments

Sometimes our problems seem to overwhelm us, and wrap us in a tangled web of emotional duress. Sometimes the inner voices begin to argue with each other and chatter endlessly until the ‘you‘ inside wants to scream STOP! And sometimes, you retreat to somewhere deep within and block everything out refusing to come out and face the situation. Yep..that’s kinda where I’ve been for the last 2 weeks….going from one end of the field to another and then back to number one. But a little bird reminded me of who I am. You heard me … a little bird. She arrived...

The Thoughts Within…..

Posted by on Jan 26, 2018 | 0 comments

The thoughts swirling around within…. What do I mean? Well, it’s been a time of reflection….within. It seems always to be a time of reflection doesn’t it? I mean, after all, we are constantly seeking, constantly desiring this or that, driving to be better or get it together or whatever. So all of us, every day, whether you know it or not are in a deep state of a time of reflection. You can be conscious of it – or not. So many things have happened to me in the last month it is hard to grasp. Maybe writing them down will help sort out some of the feelings and...

The Blanketed Dream

Posted by on Jan 26, 2018 | 2 comments

At bible study last week, we entered into one of our many rabbit trails. Thank goodness for rabbit trails! As we shared around the table and concerns came and went within the group – someone said that my ‘coughing’ (a 2 1/2 yr problem) might be a symptom related to ‘grief’ and reminded me that she had told me such a year ago. Really, I thought to myself. I didn’t remember that, but it did stick with me as my mind delved into the memory banks of my psyche as I tried to pull things forth to remember what she had said. Nothing came up. That night it was still on my mind and as I laid down to go...

Something to think on ….

Something to think on ….

A friend of mine always posts such wonderful, uplifting, warming messages – he truly ‘gets my day going’ … Majesty. Magnificence. Beauty. Peace. Joy. Hope. Love. Kindness. Gentleness. Meekness [i.e. quiet, reserved, peaceful inner strength]. Draw these things. Write about them. Teach about them. Sing them. Choreograph and dance them. Design them into clothing, into room decor, into flower arrangements, and into buildings. And most of all, BECOME THEM.   Tip: Sign up and follow Bill Bullock!...

Weeks End Weigh In

Posted by on Jan 12, 2018 | 0 comments

Well, at the end of this day, we will rest from our weigh in. After all, sometimes you just have to pick yourself up, dust yourself off and carry on! What better time to do that then the beginning of His rest ~ Shabbat! Shabbat holds such a special meaning to those who ‘keep’ her. She was set aside by the Holy One of Israel, the Creator of All, the One who Is and Was and Is to Come! Shabbat is the sign of the Covenant! Here what God said in Exodus 31:13 ~ “But as for you, speak to the children of Israel, saying, ‘You shall surely observe My sabbaths; for this is a...

New Week, New Weigh-in Thoughts

Posted by on Jan 9, 2018 | 2 comments

Well, I’ve mulled it over all weekend and again, here we are – a new week – what on earth happened to last week? Gone…just vanished into the great dense nothingness.  And once again, I feel like nothing was accomplished. Ok….so pick yourself up and let’s begin again. Time to weigh in for the upcoming week. Forget the physical – if that comes that will be a joy in and of itself…but this is a spiritual weigh-in.  An evaluation of sorts … and it still feels like I’m on the bottom rung of acceptance. But maybe I’m too hard on...
