He Walks with Me, He Talks with Me

I have had something on my mind. I find myself wanting to take a piece of what I believe and give it to someone who does not believe, so they will know. It pulls and tugs at me. Of course, it isn’t that easy. We cannot take it out and hand it over. We can…

Lessons From the Birds

They are a pair. They perch on the rooftop in blistering 103° Central Texas heat in a display of love, oblivious to their environment, which is often a jungle of noise (a plane, a car or truck whizzes by), strong breeze, and a neighborhood that man built. The sun comes up, the sun goes down….

Reinvention: Coming Full Circle

When the mindset chains broke, I realized that I was able to design what I wanted to say on paper once again. I had the freedom to express myself. I had the freedom to help change lives, and I was being paid to do it! That is when it all began to return, full circle!

Relax in my Presence

So, I don’t believe in opening the bible and pointing at a page haphazardly, as if we could hurdle a dart across a room at a target in an attempt to precisely find answers to life’s challenges. But, today when I sought encouragement and opened a book, not the bible itself, His voice fell into my lap. I was lifted up by God’s words. As I…

Nourishing my Soul With Writing

With the study of my intentions this season, I have realized how I have let soulful creativity go to the wayside. Pleasure and peaceful soul nourishment comes to me through writing. One of my favorite coaching questions to ask my clients is: Name one thing you do that leads you to forget about time, environment, your…

You Are The Everlasting God

We were returning home from a motorcycle ride when we became separated by a traffic light. I knew my husband was ahead of me somewhere. As I neared our apartment complex on my bike, I saw that he was straddling the tracks of our entrance gate with his bike to keep the gate open for me. He is good like that. When I…

Blessed Be the Peacemakers

As a child of God, remember this, “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” (Matthew 5:11) You’ve…

Musings on Aging

I find aging, or the topic thereof, interesting. When I was in my early 20’s I couldn’t wait to grow a little older. Being young can be tough, especially in an office workplace setting. I was at the bottom of the totem pole, and I knew it. I typed invoices on a manual typewriter and…

God’s Message Through Color

It had been a trying week. After I arrived home from work I took a drive to a second-hand shop to peek around for a couple of small end-of-week rewards … a token to hold in my hands, and the other a gift of unwinding by myself. As I drove back home with air conditioning blasting in…

Living a Mindful Life

Diesel and I were secured in the dog park when I heard a little voice squeal with delight, “Look mom, a jumbo puppy!” He did not see a chunky wrinkle-faced bulldog, he saw a jumbo puppy! The tiny boy clung to the chain link fence with intent, with nothing short of delight in his eyes….
