Change,,,the Only Constant in Life

As I grow older, and hopefully wiser, I am reminded that one of the only constants in our lives is change. As the seasons roll through, one to the other, so our worlds do as well. And as individuals, we too find ourselves changing with the times. I tend to think of myself as aContinue reading “Change,,,the Only Constant in Life”

Faith Amidst Struggles, Regardless of Circumstances

I am reminded this day that the strongest of faiths can be built during the most trying of circumstances. I look back on my life and see that the times when my faith was bolstered the most was when life had dealt its harshest blows. Such is the way life works…such is the way faithContinue reading “Faith Amidst Struggles, Regardless of Circumstances”

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…”

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…”

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…”

Thoughts on Divine Fate and Such…

Sometimes there are things that we don’t want to do, but end up doing them anyway….a part of Divine fate. Sometimes unimaginable things happen…and they are a part of Divine faith as well. All things can work together for good, even though we may never understand why they happened the way they did. Things canContinue reading “Thoughts on Divine Fate and Such…”

The Nightmare That Seems to Have No End….

It was a normal Thursday at school, March 12th, 2020. News of the coronavirus had found its way to us, but at that point it certainly didn’t seem to be much of a threat. How quickly that all changed over the weekend. That Thursday was the last day of in-person school for the year. AndContinue reading “The Nightmare That Seems to Have No End….”

Mistakes,,,,I’ve made more than a few

Life has a way of teaching you the lessons you need to be taught, many times without your awareness. I recently have been humbled by events in my life that have caused me to realize that I don’t always make good decisions about the most important of things. You think you’re doing well in life…everythingContinue reading “Mistakes,,,,I’ve made more than a few”

There is nothing to fear…

“The presence of fear is a sure sign that you are trusting in your own strength. The awareness that there is nothing to fear shows that somewhere in your mind, though not necessarily in a place you recognize as yet, you have remembered God, and let His strength take the place of your weakness. TheContinue reading “There is nothing to fear…”
