Last night I went to bed early, not because I was physically tired, but because I was emotionally worn out.  I didn’t have energy for anything other than the oblivion of a warm bed.  But I did not sleep soundly […]

When Hard Things Happen, Change the Way You Think

posted by cgreb

So, I got word today that Dad will be admitted to a nursing home two days from now.  This is not news that anyone who loves her parent ever wants to hear.  Although with the money for his care rapidly […]

The Power and Blessing of Meditation

posted by cgreb

Last night I had the blessing of participating in an intimate meditation group.  Four of us met in the home of my friend, Gary, in order to experience sitting in silence together. Gary enjoys keeping his front door wide open […]

In Praise of Birds

posted by cgreb

On today’s walk, I was blessed with the awareness of birds.  What joy, beauty, and magic they bring to our world!  Rachel Carson was right, if we somehow managed to kill off all the birds – through the short-sightedness of […]

“There is nothing to worry about.”   This was one of the angel cards I drew last night.  And how grateful I was to see it. Angel cards, for those unfamiliar with the concept, are decks of cards with messages […]

The last month has been a bit unstable.  My housing situation was up in the air (as written about in “Faith in the Face of Flux”) and then there were transportation issues.  I was to return to Colorado with a […]

What Is Most Important?
So, I have decided to take a break from writing this blog for a while. Although I have much to write about, sometimes the time, energy, and means to write it are not as available. And I’m in a place in my life right now where I don’t care to “push the river.” I have to prioritize how I use

Things Can Shift in an Instant
Two times in the last two weeks I was feeling incredibly depleted and fatigued.  The first time it was after driving 2000 miles across the country in four days by myself - the third and longest day was through gale force Kansas winds that shook my car so thoroughly I had to slow way down so as not

What Do You Value?
On a long 2,000 mile car trip across the country recently, I found myself with some time to think.  Car trips can be good that way.  Somewhere along the way I found myself thinking about money and how we have come to place such value on something which is, in actuality, paper.  Yes, I know theore

A Time for Others and a Time for Self
We're all familiar with that timeless piece of wisdom found in Ecclesiastes: "There is a time for everything,     and a season for every activity under the heavens: 2     a time to be born and a time to die,     a time to plant and a time to uproot, 3     a time to kill an

Learning to Trust
I finally figured out what I'm doing wrong.  I figured out why I've been having so much trouble with Dad's move into the nursing home, with his recent decline, and with his current fevered state.  It's not that I'm afraid of him dying, it's that I don't want him to be uncomfortable.  I don't want
