On Sharing

On Sharing

On Sharing. (Or the lack thereof…)   I never wanted to be one of “those people.” You know the ones that pedal their wares like a bouquet of smelling salts under your nose, in hopes you’d come to your senses and buy what they’re selling. You know, “those people” who you sort of dread bumping […]

The Only Word That Matters

The Only Word That Matters

By now you may have heard of the “one word” concept, where you select what is to be your one word for the year. The word that would encompass the powerful intent of the primary goal or outcome you want to achieve or what you’d truly like to experience. It’s a powerful tool and it […]

The Freedom Of Forgiveness

The Freedom Of Forgiveness

When we let go of what was, we make room for what could be. All too often we hold someone in a prison of the past and throw away the key instead of sliding it into the pocket of forgiveness and letting the caged bird free. Both the person we are holding in that dingy […]

Here And Now

Here And Now

It’s hard to imagine. Both then and now. That call or instantaneous moment of knowingness that your loved one is no longer here or that the great likelihood of their not being here is imminent. Your heart sinks as low as the earth and joins in its heaviness as it perceives separation from the great […]

What I’m Up To These Days

What I’m Up To These Days

I found myself mildly cringing today. And this time only out of habit. I was asked by a former colleague and friend I haven’t talked to in a while, what I’m up to these days. In the past, my usual answer would be filled with all kinds of projects and endeavors. Goals and opportunities to […]

To Whom It May Concern

To Whom It May Concern

I wrote this for someone near and dear to my heart as I process the grief I feel through the pain I’ve caused. As I reread it I saw faces of others and the hurt I caused them through my words and also the unforgiveness of others I’ve too held onto. All the toothpaste that […]

You Are Not Alone…

You Are Not Alone…

We’re not alone in our aloneness. I think most of us~ The vast majority of the population of the world~feel alone in our feelings. Feeling flawed and weary~ tired and frustrated. Even hopeless at times as to the betterment of it all and how and when it will all come about. When that change will […]

Temporary Amnesia

Temporary Amnesia

I forgot for a moment who I am and what I’ve done. Got swept away by fear and carried off into a forest of forgetfulness. Not remembering the journey I’ve been on and the waters I’ve crossed. Barefoot and bloody, the path at times muddy. I hit the snooze bar on those former ambitions and […]

The Cure For Weariness

The Cure For Weariness

Some things won’t let go of you~ Like the niggle and the nudge, asking you to budge. To move about with ease and grace to that which occupies and encumbers your space… For me~ this beautiful, Divine, and Holy grip of God has been the long whispered call to ministry. It’s been a slow and […]

Faithful Where You Are~

Faithful Where You Are~

Can you be faithful where you are? Can you glean light no matter the shadows that occur in the realm of your possibilities? Can you open your heart even wider when life threatens to shut the door in your face? Can you make space for it all and not let it cause you to fall; […]
