When we pursue righteousness and love, we find much more than that, and joy is contained in all that we find.
Looking for that perfect gift?
And God so loves the world....
When we allow the wordless, timeless Spirit of joy and love to enter our hearts, we cannot help but to smile.
This is not a promotion for a new line of greeting cards; it is a promotion for a way of living and a frame of mind. And it is all quite simply stated.
I believe that there is a hidden perfection behind this seemingly imperfect world. Can good intentions help bring it to light? Can good intentions help bring it to life?
He is risen. He is risen to be with us. He forgives us and heals us. He is the Christ and He is risen.
The long journey towards trust and love
Pass the peas, and pass the pies. Share the love and the laughter. Be thankful for all that is good. Give thanks, and watch the good things grow.
We not only possess souls; we are our souls. Being alive to our souls is being alive to our true selves, and being alive to the forever untroubled Spirit of God.
Summertime has arrived. But I continue to wear my hoodie, the one I wear all year. It is my spiritual hoodie of compassion and more. It is my hoodie of humility.
Tis' the season for giving, It is a special time of year, as any season can be one of giving, each and every day. We give thanks; we give gifts; we forgive. We give and then we give some more. And our hearts are filled with joy.
I am a seeker. But what is it that I seek? I seek wisdom, I seek beauty, and perhaps some peace and joy as well. What I find is that they have been seeking me. So I surrender to them and I discover a deeper understanding.
Despite all the conflicts and hardships found in the early bible stories, God's goodness is still revealed. Despite all the hardships that we endure today, God's goodness is still experienced.

It is okay to say, "Have a happy holiday." When we keep Christ in our hearts and in our actions, we keep Christ in Christmas. It's all about cheer and joy, and maybe a little bit of that elusive peace on earth.
I believe that a powerful goodness lies at the heart of existence, the same goodness that exists deep in our hearts, It is a good day in a fundamental way. It is a good day because God sees it that way.
Welcome to another day of the mundane, the miraculous mundane.
I believe that we can create small miracles anytime we are being kind, continuing the miraculous work of Jesus in todays world.
With faith and trust in our hearts, we pray for our daily bread. And we allow ourselves to receive Gods unlimited abundance, which is much more than money.
When we repent and receive the Holy Spirit, we gain the knowledge of salvation, which is the knowledge of forgiveness and healing, We begin life anew, forgiving at every step.
"He has risen!" This is the good news of the gospel. This news has risen also, lifted from the written pages to become a living presence in the world. It is the good news of forgiveness and healing, delivered daily.
