Who Needs Black Friday?

Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving devoted to sales, brings out the crazy drive to “get the best deal”. Saving money and securing the best price, often comes with strings – beating out your neighbor, getting up at dawn and grabbing at a limited supply. Granted everyone wants a “deal”, but who really needs it? Especially remembering that the best things in life are free! This time of the year, with Thanksgiving as the kickoff is the perfect time to celebrate God’s love for us – the best deal of our lives. We don’t need Black Friday to get in on this special offer. All we have to do us to be ourselves, living as beloved children of God. God’s love for each of us is abundant and not anything like the Black Friday Sales. In God’s Promotional Program: There is no time limit– this is not a one-day shot of love. The offer stands throughout our lifetime. You can ALWAYS count on God’s love to be there. There is not a limited supply of product. There is plenty of love and abundance for all. God will not run out of love, caring or compassion. This offer of unconditional love is open to all– you do not have to “earn” the deal. God does not give a day of his love for a day of our good behavior. God’s love is there in spite of our behavior. What better deal could there be? “Give thanks to God – He is good and his love never quits.”   (1 Chronicles... read more

Make Everyday Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is the quiet holiday. It sneaks up on us after Halloween as we are distracted by the Christmas decorations.  It’s a day set aside without the fanfare of lights, gifts, parties and other distractions. This holiday is totally devoted to one of the most powerful practices that can heal, energize and change lives. We read that maybe we cannot change our circumstances but we can control our attitude toward them. And gratitude is that lynchpin that allows us that turnabout. Physically – Gratitude is related to 23% lower levels of stress hormones (cortisol). Gratitude is related to a 10% improvement in sleep quality in patients with chronic pain and 19% lower depression levels. Gratitude empowers us to take charge of our emotional lives, and as a consequence, our bodies reap the benefit. Emotionally – Gratitude will increase self-esteem, strengthen will power, enhance our relationships, deepen our relationship with our Creator, awaken creativity, and improve our abilities both mentally and physically. The one trait that can multiply goodness in ourselves and in the world is gratitude, energizing all aspects of our lives. So why do we celebrate this potent holiday only once a year? Make gratitude a “habit”… Count your blessings instead of sheep at bedtime.  If you like to write – start a gratitude journal. Decorate a vase and each day write down a blessing adding it to the collection of blessings in the vase. Celebrate by reading them every Thanksgiving. Whatever and however you can develop the mindset of thanksgiving and gratitude it is well worth it. “Great things happen to those who don’t stop believing, trying,... read more

What Gets More Valuable With Age?

What, besides wine, gets better and more valuable with age? In an article by Jess Catcher the author lists 11 other interesting things that get better with age: whiskey, jeans, cheddar cheese, cast iron skillets, beef, balsamic vinegar, fine leather, pickles, flannel sheets, and seedlings. (Thumbnail Source: Pinterest). Agree? Anything else that you might add? Returning from a girls’ trip to Tucson with 4 of my dear high school classmates to celebrate a birthday, I’m reminded of just how precious life is. After spending 3 fun-filled days with them, I would highlight two additional things that become more valuable as we age: time and friendship! (Maybe the author, almost 30, has not lived long enough to value these other two.) Studies have shown that our happiness is in direct correlation with our social interactions.  Social interactions are paramount because friendships can add years to our lives and life to our years by creating meaningful connections. A good friend can help us make it though this life by acting as a sounding board, solving problems dealing with loss, disappointment, doubt, confusion, parenting issues and divorce..all  helping with depression. A friend’s honesty can be priceless, helping us see clearly.  Friends can be role models uplifting us to be our best selves. Through a sense of sharing and belonging our happiness soars. Our self-esteem grows. These  “friendship boots” are very difficult to fill, making friendship so precious and valuable, especially as the years tick away. True friendships are rock solid, forever firm. Time on the other hand is fleeting…If we waste it, we will never get it back. The old saying is true:... read more
