What to Do with the News   Leave a comment

So let’s talk about the news

The kind you overhear or what you choose

All is, and all can be

A sacred opportunity for positivity

It is free will to walk according to The Way

To enliven our mind

To open our hearts

To raise up our voice

and EMPOWER OUR WORLD

To PRAY PRAY PRAY

So, God, I pray

When I hear Your Spirit say

This is your battle to fight

This is your heart to mend

That I will respond humbly encouraged

To gratefully always say YES

Starting Young   Leave a comment

Sometimes it’s a vision … perhaps just a glimpse

Or having our senses incited by a whiff

Instilling what our future holds

Depends so much upon the world that we let in

Steeped in choices percolating new ideas

Stirs us deeply in our souls

To share with one another all the good that we behold

Things are Looking Up   Leave a comment

You can float — And you can fly

And even walk if the ground is dry

Your very presence offers me

Reminders of endless possibilities

I don’t know what the day will hold

But I know that God will hold me through the day

March On   3 comments

In this New Year – I overstretched – literally – Yoga postures accompany my three week routine at the gym but on January 1, I tested the boundaries of my limberness to a painful degree. I have since had acupuncture, massage with cupping, and tomorrow will see a chiropractor – Everyday I recount my gratitude for this being only temporary and for the gift of a more acute compassion for those who suffer greatly. Yesterday, I may have over-did it again in the Women’s March here in Sarasota, walking two miles over the Ringling Bridge. I don’t regret one uncomfortable step. I witnessed women in wheel chairs, walking with canes, and even reflected on those who suffered the cruelty of the holocaust. I know that out of pain comes great reward when we turn to garner its lessons for others to pave a better way for the future – And that is where we all are today, aren’t we? To care, to love, to trust, that all things work together for good for those who love God — At all times there are opportunity – if I see my situation as such – And seize it to be part of a greater solution for all – And in all things and in all ways to be thankful and act with love – to serve is a gift – to stand by idly only serves to block the way – So, to get out of the way we must get in the flow of service –

Words of wisdom, comfort, and truth that feed my soul and are medicine for my body – As we know worry is one of our greatest enemies – May these healing words prosper us all each day to live in thankfulness, with joy, ready to serve, sharing with one another.

How often I reflect on these words of Jesus that were written by the Apostle and physician, Luke.

Thank you Jesus – thank you Dr. Luke 😉

From the Gospel of Luke Chapter 12

24: “And how much more valuable you are than birds! Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?”

35

“Be dressed ready for service and keep your lamps burning, …”

Choosing How to Have a Happy New Year   Leave a comment

For Christmas I gave myself the gift of deleting all my news apps and turning off notifications. I will choose the time and the source to stay informed … In the meantime, and I pray all the time, I will cling to God’s good news, the message of hope, and the reassurance of God’s Divine Supremacy … and because of that I can gratefully and sincerely claim a Happy New Year ~img_4102

Getting On the Right Path   Leave a comment

If we depended on GOD as much as we depend on our GPS

How much better our world would be
