Four Legged Grandchildren

posted by Cheryl Petersen

Jesse Cohen refers to himself as a “late bloomer.” But, late blooming flowers are stars in their season. And, at an age when most adults are pondering retirement and golf courses, Cohen is making music. He picked up the guitar […]

Give-and-Take in Marriage

posted by Cheryl Petersen

My husband and I compromise. However, the give-and-take is not a symptom of, “If you do this, I’ll do that,” syndrome. We compromise by applying spiritual rules of common sense, forgiveness, and honesty. The hardest part is not getting set […]

Our neighbor has a sheep ranch. The sheep are guarded by Pyrenees dogs. They are friendly, yet intuitively know to guard their charges. Frisco, Lilly, and Maggie are descendants of the large dogs which roamed the mountains of Asia thousands […]

Last week, I got a phone call. “Cheryl can you please come in and work for Kathleen, she cut her finger so badly, she can’t work in the kitchen for another 10 days?” “Sure.” The kitchen prepares and serves breakfast, […]

Losing Weight During the Holidays

posted by Cheryl Petersen

Appetite allegedly grows and gets out of control during the Holidays. However, it isn’t appetite that grows, it’s the “thinking” mistakenly connected to appetite that grows and gets out of control. Appetite is. We want an appetite. But, when we […]

posted by Cheryl Petersen

I can change Cheryl’s mood. When she gets uptight and weary, I go to her and quietly know Love and Life. I’m not expecting anything from her or from the world. I know one Holy Spirit. Cheryl calms down immediately […]

Zen kitty showed me all-presence

Bee stings and manure fertilizer
Last spring, I planted a flowering plum tree out in the lawn and it’s been struggling all summer. Wanting to give it a little boost, I asked our neighbor, who has a gigantic pile of horse manure, if I could get some. “Sure, help ...
