Stop Wondering the “Whys” in Life…

I’ve had a lot of time to reflect here the past several weeks and a part of what I’ve learned is that I’ve had an insatiable desire to know “why” things in life have turned out as they have. I want to get at the root cause of things and be able to rationalize whyContinue reading “Stop Wondering the “Whys” in Life…”

My Just-Beginning Podcast Address

I was reminded by a friend that from time-to-time I needed to look for new outlets to express myself and my life’s journey. WordPress had a link to a podcasting website and so I clicked on it and was taken to Anchor.com And from there, I had discovered I had totally forgotten that I hadContinue reading “My Just-Beginning Podcast Address”

Perspective on God…

I recently saw a friend post a picture of herself on the beach with the caption “God is so good.” That same friend, on her way home from the beach, was having car problems. I reminded her in a comment to “Remember that God is good.” Other situations come to mind. Someone is having severeContinue reading “Perspective on God…”

Two Weeks Away from Social Media

Tonight I’m beginning a two week break from Facebook. I’ve once again realized how much mindless time I spend on it and think being away for a while will do me some good. I’ve left instructions on my page on how to access the daily posts I do for those who really want to continueContinue reading “Two Weeks Away from Social Media”

The Universe Responds, Like It or Not…

I have come to the conclusion that the Universe as we know it does indeed respond to what we are putting out there. You can call it “manifesting” or any one of other terms, but it does indeed exist. Recently finding myself in one of those periods in life I refer to as the “doldrums,”Continue reading “The Universe Responds, Like It or Not…”

Change and Resulting Fear…

There are times in all of our lives where change is inevitable. In fact, I think it can be said the only constant in life IS change. And when change is occurring, many times fear can crop up along with it. A lot of the time fear is present in our lives, it’s because thereContinue reading “Change and Resulting Fear…”

Intimacy…or lack thereof

I’ve recently done some soul searching and in the process, have read something about being authentic with others, an area I will admit I’ve struggled with in the past. I make these notes to myself and think perhaps others will connect with them as well. “To be authentic,,,What does that mean?” Never listen to anybody,Continue reading “Intimacy…or lack thereof”

There are those days….

There are those days when everything would seem to not be going as you’d like it to and there doesn’t appear to be any way to do anything about it all. One can let the heaviness of the day weigh him/her down, sinking ever lower in the stream of life. The main question that hasContinue reading “There are those days….”

Decisions and Reflection….

There have been those times in my life when I’ve made decisions that I thought were “right” at the time that I made them. And then, upon reflection, I pondered about whether or not those decisions were the “right” ones to make. Recently I’ve been reflecting on several life choices that I’ve made and wonderedContinue reading “Decisions and Reflection….”

Notes and Such for Wednesday, June 2nd, 2021

From today’s “Streams in the Desert” devotional: “The only way to learn faith is to endure great trials. I have learned my faith by standing firm amid severe testings. This is very true. The time to trust is when all else fails.” Also from “Streams in the Desert” for today: ” Dear one, you scarcelyContinue reading “Notes and Such for Wednesday, June 2nd, 2021”
