A New Thing

As a child I was encouraged to be creative……sort of encouraged. My mom was a creative person, but her way of encouraging me was to have me watch John Gnagy, our version of Bob Ross. She bought pads and pencils and I was left to figure out if I was able to draw or not. ThatContinue reading “A New Thing”

You’ve Got A Friend

One of the beauties of humanity is when you find people of like mindedness. Kindred Spirits. Someone who thinks similar to you and even understands what you just told them. For me that seems few and far between. But when I find one it is like a bowl full of gems and jewels and chocolate!Continue reading “You’ve Got A Friend”

Most seem to celebrate by gathering with loved ones and feasting on a wonderful roasted (or fried or tofu-ed) turkey with stuffing and sweet potatoes and mashed potatoes and gravy and cranberryContinue reading “Thankful”

Find Your Worship

I was struck deeply one day by a story I heard from a friend of mine.  It was about worship. I’m not talking about the act of worship, which I’m sure has different meanings to many of us.  Some think of the music portion of a church service or perhaps music that moves you deeply when alone with God.Continue reading “Find Your Worship”
