One Little Word

Grateful (that 2016 is done!). Over ten years ago, Ali Edwards started a tradition of choosing one little word to lean into and live with for the coming year.  One Little Word has been a beautiful spark which enriches my life daily, and provides an interesting backwards glance at years gone by.  I just have […]

His Eye is on the Sparrow, and I know He watches me

< Has it really been two months?  So many words to spill! > Did you remember to be grateful?  So much hustle and bustle over the holidays.  We race around, more frantic and angrier as the clock ticks closer to December 25th.  Somewhat juxtaposed.  This year I wanted to uncomplicate my life and I found […]

Another Face to the One-Year Challenge

So … that thing about celibacy for one year?  It’s more of a guideline, n’est-ce pas?  *grin* “I’m in!” then “I’m out!” Memories of a Seinfeld discussion with a work colleague.  Whoever said the path to redemption was a straight line?! However, I did reach one spiritual plateau with this one-year challenge.  I’m so fed […]

One-Year Challenge

Yesterday, I received the message twice from two separate sources that I need to take a year off to work on me. I began listening to Andy Stanley’s Your Move sermons a few weeks ago.

Proof Part 1

Matthew 7:7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” In therapy, “Ask for what you want” Dr. Dan said. With scientific curiosity, I tested God and my faith. I want proof. I want proof that there is more to this life.  […]

Love is the answer!

I am a great believer in the knowledge and insight in quotes, proverbs and sayings.  One of my favourite quotes is: “When the student is ready, the teacher appears”, which is commonly attributed to Buddhist wisdom, but the actual source is vague.  Regardless of the origin, what it means to me is this: When I […]

Do everything in faith and love

One of my main issues with any monotheist religion (the main Abrahamic religions which believe in one God (monotheist) are Judaism, Christianity, and Islam) has always been their deviations away from the simple foundation of spirituality … Do everything in Faith and Love. Many followers of these religions don’t even realize that they all follow […]

In the Beginning …

In the Beginning … July 1976 – It’s a beautiful Saturday night with a star-filled sky in Barton, Vermont.  Like every other summer evening, my family and our campground friends huddled around the campfire to laugh, talk and pop Jiffy-Pop popcorn.  I loved those weekends in Vermont … swimming in the lake, tadpole fishing in […]
