life’s all about choices

I believe God wants you to know……that the time has come  to get clear about who you are and what you choose.
There come moments in every person’s life when a decision is necessary. A big decision. A major choice.
Such a time is now.

What you get to choose today is who you are and who you choose to be, and what you wish to experience in your Life.
Remember, not to decide is to decide.
Neale Donald Walsh

The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear. – Nelson Mandela

One can choose to go back toward safety or forward toward
growth. Growth must be chosen again and again; fear must be
overcome again and again.
– Abraham Maslow


living in abundance

There is always enough to share!


it’s all about today!


I have not failed. I have just found 10,000 ways that won’t work. – Thomas Edison

never stop learning!

faking a rainbow
Have you tried listening with your elbow
When you don’t like the song?
Tried spinning in circles
When you can’t get along?
When you have a bad day
Try stomping and say
“Everything’s crap!”
Then go take a nap
With your head nestled in
Your favorite friend’s lap.
Have you tried singing in thirds
When you don’t know the words?
Tried dancing in dirt
When your feelings get hurt?
Tried hanging from trees
When you can’t feel your heart?
And tried something dumb
When you’ve tried everything smart?
When the clouds have rolled in
And keep you from seeing
Try faking a rainbow
Till it bursts into being.


in the center of a labyrinth

This morning I am sitting in the center of a labyrinth in Robin & Scott Kissel’s yard! And as I sit here in the amazing space and talk to God and breathe in my spirit and the spirit around me, I am so full of love, joy, peace and gratitude.
It has not been the easy path to get here, but it has given me so much more than I ever dreamed was possible. I am amazed and so humbled by this love which has consumed my path, and as I rest right here in the center, I realize how many times when I thought I was in the eye of the hurricane, I was actually in the eye of the majestic God of glory, who is everything and in everything!
Who am I that I would be so loved? I am the beloved daughter of God, and I am loved just as you are, you fabulous creation! We are so sons and daughters! Praise God in the highest! Let my lips and my words never stop giving praise!!!


one step at a time


the truth is inside you, but you gotta listen n follow!


to all my beautiful people

“Praise is the beauty of a Christian. What wings are to a bird, what fruit is to the tree, what the rose is to the thorn, that is praise to a child of God.” ~ Spurgeon
