A friend just sent me this video commercial for Evian water. If you need a smile then I suggest you watch it. Have a wonderful day! http://www.youtube.com/v/pfxB5ut-KTs "The happiness of life is made up of minute fractions--the little, soon forgotten charities of a kiss or a smile, a kind look or heartfelt compliment." Samuel Taylor Coleridge… Continue reading need a smile?
For a while, I've had the feeling that something was about to pop in my life; like I was on the edge of a new discovery. Over the past few days, I've seen so many straws (literally) on my morning runs, that I had to look up the origin and deeper meaning of the word.… Continue reading Opening our hearts to receive….
A few months ago, someone told me that they found me difficult to be around, and I could feel that this was true. She always did seem to be tense when we got together, and even though we'd known each other for years, she hadn't ever said this before. I also felt a sense of… Continue reading Blessed clarity
I had the interesting experience yesterday of hearing two people (one on T.V. and the other in person) use sarcasm to make a point. In both cases, it was clear that the person talking felt superior, or better than, the one they were talking about. They were trying to show that they knew more, and… Continue reading An end to sarcasm
I wasn't going to post a blog today. Sometimes I just like to slowly go back through the comments and take them in, thanking each person (sometimes in writing, always in my heart), but as I was outside playing with Luke just now, I found that I was feeling a little down. The thought, "You… Continue reading Change your life in a moment
Sometimes I help Jack sell things on-line, and usually the transactions go smoothly, but the other day he sold a big piece of equipment to a fellow in South Africa and it looked like the buyer had backed out (after much effort and some expense to crate-up and get the piece ready for shipping). It… Continue reading Keeping my 2 cents…and maybe a few more
Most of us have had the experience of hearing something, either directly or indirectly, negative about ourselves and felt the anger, defensiveness or sadness well-up inside. It has taken me many years to discover that any words said by another about me paled in comparison to the words that I silently and secretly thought about… Continue reading Broadcasting a new message
Many years ago, when I believed that spiritual people should not care about (or want) wealth, I was invited by some friends to a dinner before I left to work at a mission in West Virginia. As we were saying goodbye, a man whom I'd known for years (and who was always a crusty kind… Continue reading Expect the best
I read this story last night and wanted to share it with you. Even though I believe that heaven and hell are simply states of mind that we live in now, brought on by our thoughts (not places that we will go after we are no longer in physical form), I still loved this story.… Continue reading Wishing you all a heavenly day
I was standing in line at Northshire Bookstore Cafe the other day, and noticed that the woman in front of me looked very unhappy. She had a little boy with her who was absolutely delightful and seemed to notice everything (and comment about it). I finally said to her, "Your son is wonderful!" She turned… Continue reading Seeing with the eyes of Love
