Better Habits

posted by Cheryl Petersen

Somewhere along the line of my education I learned not to take everything at face value. I started asking for second opinions so to speak, or I take the time to research issues that need improvement or healing in my […]

Zen Kitty and Memory

posted by Cheryl Petersen

I’ve never read scientific studies on memory, mainly because I don’t read human words. Sure, it would be great if a potent memory could be bottled and taken when needed. Only problem is, when the bottle cap is removed, the […]

Looking Under the Car

posted by Cheryl Petersen

Last night, I got in the car and waited for Doug. Just before Doug got in the car, I asked, “Please check under the car for a cat.” Doug rolls his eyes and bends over, trying not to get dirty, […]

Telling a Story

posted by Cheryl Petersen

Our stories are our realities; however, realities change. Interestingly, our story can change before our reality changes. As a reporter, I’ve noticed that people who stop repeating stories tainted with bitterness and depression, and start telling stories infiltrated with hope […]

Crying Heart

posted by Cheryl Petersen

I just received a call from a friend who broke off a close relationship. I love them both and don’t want them to hurt. I also just read about a U.S. soldier who turned himself after killing 16 people in […]

Jargon Disease

posted by Cheryl Petersen

I admit it. I do not understand the jargon of rappers, computer coders, or lawyers. Although jargon makes communication easier within a group, it comes across otherwise to outsiders, and can pose a problem. The jargon isn’t the problem or […]

Zen Kitty Climbs

posted by Cheryl Petersen

I’d never climbed a tree before Calvin and Hobbes came to live with us. Calvin is the real climber. In a split second, she runs to the trees and hikes up into the limbs. Hobbes easily follows. I had to […]

An Exercise that Carries Out What Exists

posted by Cheryl Petersen

My exercise of healing power is more effective when: -Healing power isn’t divided or measured. -Healing power is seen as a tool to exercise. -When exercise is not seen as the cure-all, but God is seen as All-in-all. Healing power […]

What Falls From Our Lips

The snow was nimbly falling outside when I went for a walk an hour ago. Here is upstate New York, it is common for moisture to fall from the sky. The moisture can come not only in the form of […]

Good dissolves bad
Sometimes, I just feel bad. Bad about myself, or life, or my situation. I can figure out why, for example, it’s because of hormones. But giving it a name doesn’t get rid of the bad feeling. Science and religion both discuss the value of positive thinking and it has proven to be a good s

Keeping mercy
Deut. 7:9 Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations. (English Standard Version) Know now then that the Lord your God is the only true God! He is the faithful

Fishing Salmon River
Once experts realized genes aren’t stable and can mutate, the human mind took off in multiple directions, some not so good. Genetically modified organisms (GMO’s) have become popular, although not exactly admired. Many of the plants and trees we grow have been forced selected. For example,

Inspiring person, Rosamond Carr
Not what I’d classify as a religious person, but spiritual, Rosamond Halsey Carr tells her story in her book, Land of a Thousand Hills: My Life in Rwanda. Published in 2001 and read by me last month, I recommend this book as a picture of woman’s self-realized independence, inner splendor, and ou

A star gymnast
Film, The Gabby Douglas Story (2014), captured many of the emotions that surely were experienced before medals were earned at the 2008 Olympics. Gabby’s family, already at a level of impoverishment, sacrificed for Gabby Douglas to continue training. And, although tempted, Gabby didn’t give up.
