Two Sides of the Same Coin

The Chinese word for “crisis” is composed of two characters. One of these notions represents danger. The other represents opportunity. – John F. Kennedy God tosses us a few coins.What do we do with them? They say that when God closes one door he opens a window. Yes, but we have to get through that door of crisis of danger, silencing the din of doubt and loss of faith, to be able to see the window of opportunity. We may have to live through the pain of divorce to find the happiness of a more fulfilling relationship. We may have to panic at the loss of a job in order to find a more satisfying line of work. We may have to suffer through a serious illness to enjoy a healthier life style and appreciate the support of friends and family. It’s not our problems that determine our lives. It’s how we deal with these problems that make all the difference. It’s all in our perspective and how we deal with the situation. It’s not the cards we are dealt with, but how we play them. We can lay down in self-pity, wallowing in our poor luck. Or we can see the situation as the opportunity that it really is. We look around our world and see terrible situations thinking, “how can they possibility live like that”, or “I couldn’t possibly do that”. But look at the resilience of our fellow man, taking on the challenges dealt to them. It is vital to be able to “rise to the occasion”, to see the other side of the coin, flipping... read more

It’s All Good!

Strolling through the streets on Catalina Island taking in all the window displays, my eyes and mind were captured by this one brightly colored tee shirt. It read:  “Wherever you go, there you are.” I laughed thinking “how ridiculous” or could it be “how sublime?” This affirmation by Ralph Waldo Emerson rang the same bell. “Wherever we are, God is, and all is well!”  I found this affirmation so comforting that I’m repeating it to myself a lot lately. In the midst of my worrying about this, fretting about that and losing sleep over the situations out of my control, I repeat this comforting mantra. “God is here, and all is well.”  Of course I pray telling God my concerns, (as if I had to fill Him in on my state of being). But sometimes I feel like I’m talking to a deaf ear. Is God really listening? Does He really care about my piddley problems in the whole scheme of the universe? On my soul level, I positively vow “YES”, but my mind has to be reigned in to catch up with God’s bigger picture. I’m not privy to this understanding while here on earth. With this knowledge and trust, I need to relax. I must totally give up control, letting go of the steering wheel, knowing that I’m in good hands with God in the drivers seat. Ask yourself these questions: Do you pray? Then why worry? After you reflect on these questions, repeat after me, “Wherever we are, God is, and all is well.”  ... read more

I Love You This Much!

“God will overflow your cup, so grab the biggest one you can find.”- Rob Liano Every so often we need to be reminded of how much we are loved, not only by our spouses and friends, but also by God. When life seems tedious, things don’t go our way and God seems to have forgotten us turning a deaf eat to our prayers, we need that reminder of his love and commitment to us. I remember the Bishop of San Diego under attack in newspaper feature stories and editorials being accused of excessive extravagance in the building of the Immaculta Church. The citizens of the city questioned his judgment. He had to answer for the excessive amount of money spent. I’ll never forget his words from the pulpit. “Whenever you look at this church and others like it that brim over with lavish plentitude, remember God’s love for you is just like that: over the top, way out of line, and above and beyond our expectations.” From under his beautiful brocade vestments, the bishop extended his outstretched arms. “God loves you this much,” he spread his arms as broad as possible. Even nearly 40 years later, the image of the bishop representing Christ on the cross, with arms outstretched, stuck with me as a visual representation of God’s abundant love for us. What does it mean that God loves us so much that he will withhold nothing from us – not even his son? What it means is that no matter what, God will always be there for us, with ALL his love and power, comfort and grace, no... read more
