Parental Love

I've been pondering the concept of parental love of a "goodly" parent for the last couple of months. I am learning more and more from day to day that the love of a parent for a child is the most profound because it lasts more than a life time. It lasts for an eternity. It… Continue reading Parental Love

I Will Praise Thee Forever

Today my heart is overwhelmed with awe and thanks giving because of the greatness of God. I am inspired by the song, How Great Thou Art.  A young Swedish minister, Reverend Carl Boberg of Monsteras, walked two miles along the southeast coast of Sweden in the rain and then was inspired to pen the words… Continue reading I Will Praise Thee Forever

Lifting the Poor Wayfaring Men of Grief

As we were leaving a Walmart parking lot yesterday, I rolled down my car window and gave a dollar to a homeless man on the corner. He grabbed my hand and genuinely thanked me for the dollar, but asked if I had anything for a headache. It was so hot outside. No wonder he had… Continue reading Lifting the Poor Wayfaring Men of Grief

Warrior Wednesday

Warrior Woman Spirit

I speak to so many people who don't believe in their own abilities... their abilities to succeed... their abilities to be happy... their abilities to weather the storms of life.  I even doubt myself on occasions.  You know, when life gets overwhelming.

A Warrior’s Personal Power

Have you ever noticed that some people seem to never be down, never get discouraged, and always seem to be in charge of their life?  I wonder why these people have such a positive, uplifting vibe and others don't.  I recognize that we all positive and negative thoughts and moods.  I am learning that there… Continue reading A Warrior’s Personal Power

Celebrating the Great Life Giver

Many years ago I learned of the heroic efforts of Oscar Schindler, a compassionate man who attempted to rescue a doomed race of people.  Schindler made large amounts of money in his factory in Krakow Poland providing enamel-ware for the Germans.  He used that money to buy the lives of hundreds of defenseless Jews.  To… Continue reading Celebrating the Great Life Giver

Letting Go

It has taken me a few years, but I have finally figured out what it means to be happy. It really is that simple.  The Lord teaches that wickedness never was happiness and he teaches happiness is actually a choice. How does one choose happiness? Let go.  That's how you do it.  Let go of… Continue reading Letting Go

We celebrated love this week with Valentine's Day.  It's got me thinking more about all of the aspects of love.  I looked at an old blog post I posted many years ago and decided to give it a face lift... adding a little here and there from a few more years of experience. One of… Continue reading Aspects of Love
