Onion Layers

 So I saw this meme on the internet, and thought I'd comment about it. And then God begins to peel the layers off and heal in between each so that your heart can once again love and receive love.  It's a real process, for sure. It takes time--for me, several decades. It's not a pleasant… Continue reading Onion Layers

Numb Choices Aren’t Smart

Focus! It seems we are always hearing how important focus is to reaching our goals and bringing our desires to us. However, sometimes our focus is totally off. We work hard, do what we think we should, spin our wheels, and run faster on the hamster wheel, only to remain stagnant. Why do you suppose… Continue reading Numb Choices Aren’t Smart

Grandmama’s Quilt

I wanted to tell you that I appreciate you. Is it weird that I think about my readers during the day? Perhaps that's what bloggers do. I wouldn't know, I'm still relatively new at this and haven't talked to other bloggers. I have been wondering....how are you? No, I mean really. Not what you think… Continue reading Grandmama’s Quilt

Yes, My Dear, Your Opinion Does Matter

  “No one ever made a difference by being like everyone else.”  PT Barnum Humans are inclined to want everyone to be the same. Why are we uncomfortable with people who are “out there” or who don’t fit into a box very easily? Why is it that those people are often the ones under criticism?… Continue reading Yes, My Dear, Your Opinion Does Matter

YOU are Amazing!! And don’t you forget it!

You ARE amazing!! I finally began to believe that about myself after a few days of saying it out loud in front of the mirror. The year was 2008. For most of my life I'd felt "less-than" so it took a bit of making a firm choice and perseverance to follow this program.   I'd… Continue reading YOU are Amazing!! And don’t you forget it!

I'm thinking that we all could show ourselves some grace this time of year. I originally wrote this article for the August/September issue of Women2Women Michigan Magazine (I'm the editor and write a column). I believe it is quite timely for now, during a time when we are so stressed, and demanding of ourselves. Read it,… Continue reading The Grace Experiment

I’m a Warrior, Not A Worrier!

Today my friend's situation reminded me of the need for this card. There are a bunch of things pressing in on me and my brain is in a tizzy (southern expression for going crazy).    *I'm trying to get a seat belt installed before heading south. I had to cut it because my son became… Continue reading I’m a Warrior, Not A Worrier!

We Can’t Give More Than What We Are

Without giving ourselves compassion,  we can't be compassionate. When we judge ourselves harshly, we can't be accepting. If we feel that our lives lack, we can’t give generously. When we feel that we are not enough, we can't lift up and applaud others. When we take ourselves too seriously, we can’t enjoy life. If we don’t love… Continue reading We Can’t Give More Than What We Are
