Blessings Abound

Last night I had the pleasure and blessing of sitting in a temple with about twenty other people singing songs of praise and devotion for about two hours.  Next to sitting in a place of exquisite natural beauty, this might be one of my most favorite things to do to lift my spirit. Where would…

(To continue on a recent theme….) This morning, people all over the country and many parts of the world are stumbling out of bed, grabbing some coffee, showering, dressing, and rushing off to a job they don’t really enjoy.  For many people, life has become so full of drudgery and stress they can barely stand…

This is a busy world we live in, isn’t it?  Some of us have schedules that are packed to the gills from morning to night.  For those with school-age children or corporate careers, the schedules can be especially overwhelming.  Others of us are either retired or have created lives with a bit less stress.  But…

I need to take a moment and express my gratitude for friends. Recently I have been staying at the home of a couple I met only two months ago.  They have taken me under their wing and given me the priceless gift of their friendship.  And two days ago when I felt unsafe sleeping in…

Something rather scary happened to me last night.  Someone pounded on my door yelling, “Help me, help me!”  I answered the door cautiously having heard stories of strangers getting people to open the door and then charging in with ideas of malintent.  There at the door, obviously frantic, was a man excitedly calling out, “Help…

Do you have an abundant life? I do!  And I am not wealthy.  As a matter of fact, often I live on the very edge financially.  I am not one of those people with thousands of dollars stockpiled in a savings account or in stocks or IRAs.  I don’t even have any credit cards.  I…

Change.  It’s something that tends to happen to all of us at least a few times in our lives.  Sometimes we choose it.  We may decide to move to a place that makes our heart sing; we may change careers; we may decide to go back to a school.  These are generally regarded as positive…

My father turned 80 two days ago.  This post is dedicated to him. Some people, probably many people, have fathers who were either very difficult to live with or rather absent.  This was not the case with me.  I was blessed with a pretty amazing man for a father.  I share this with you not…

I was walking the labyrinth the other day and I found myself thinking about connections.  I thought of the old Kevin Bacon game – Six Degrees of Separation.  In this game, an actor is named and then everyone brainstorms about how that person worked with someone who worked with someone who knew Kevin Bacon and…
