When we live in the timeless light and spirit of joy and love, our hearts 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. risen to be with us always, around us and within us. We are forgiven; we are healed. We are alive in Christ and Christ is alive in us. 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 are our souls and our souls are us. Being alive to our souls is being alive to our true selves, and the forever untroubled Spirit.

There is, I believe, a powerful goodness that lies at the heart of existence, and a powerful goodness that lies deep in our hearts. It is a good day because God sees that way.
Imagining the world of the miraculous and extraordinary as a part of our everyday lives, a part of our everyday mundane world. Miracles happen.
We often believe that as mere humans we are unable to perform miracles in the way that Jesus did. I believe that we can, at least in some small way, do so any time we are being kind.
We do not pray for money, but for our daily bread. We seek not riches, but fulfillment and wisdom. And we accept all the gifts from God, including that of His unlimited abundance.
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.
