Donut Stop Believing!

With my love for chocolate donuts, this bakery sign “spoke to me”, not only recalling the luscious smell of the fresh dough and the rich taste of the gooey chocolate, but as a spiritual tenet, as well. This play on words reinforced just how important faith is to us on our earthly journey. Don’t Stop Believing! Each and every day before my feet hit the floor I pray for a strong faith. We need a strong faith just to get through each day. We need an abundance of faith to embrace the seen and unseen, the known and unknown, in this life and the next.  Developing this belief calls forth our faith in God’s abundance – His caring and loving of us. Faith reminds us that God made us for a reason. Faith that God will see us though anything. Faith that all works out for the best. Faith in our fellow man. Faith in our own capabilities….. The unknown and doubts can eat away at faith pulling us away from what we believe to be true. We know the feeling of dashed hopes and shattered expectations pulling the rug out from under our faith as we struggle to make sense of it all. We sometimes lose our faith and call out, “Where are you God? Don’t you care at all?” Relying on faith can bring a peace and happiness into each day, no matter how bleak the day may be. Even in the face of troubles and adversity God has given us the inner tools of the heart (sometimes at odds with what the logical mind is thinking)... read more

Is Bigger, Better?

Here’s a good question for you: How many bureaucrats does it take to change a light bulb?  The answer is two, one to assure us that everything possible is being done, while the other one screws the light bulb into the water faucet. It’s just not in a bureaucracy that this happens. It’s a good summary of our lives. Assuring ourselves that everything possible is being done and then screwing the light bulb into the water faucet! For every one of us there are parts of life that don’t work, they are lifeless, routine and yield no joy. The reason is that we’re still hoping to get light out of a bulb screwed into a faucet, still looking for joy where none is to be found. But no need to give up! The Lord tells us the secret to enjoying his Kingdom, even with all of our flaws and limitations:  become like little children. But what makes little children different from us?  First of all they know they are little, and they know they need the help of others who love them.  Little children trust the people they meet and presume the best about them. They are meek and humble. Little children think everything is possible and worth trying. You don’t hear a little child saying, “you can’t do that” or that will never work.” They only see the positive. Little children are compassionate to those who are even smaller than more helpless than themselves. Legions of stray cats, scrawny dogs, and birds with broken wings could testify to that. They are loving. Little children lack the attention span of... read more

Start REALLY Living!

“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that’s all.” – Oscar Wilde Life is a wonderful gift. No doubt about it. But at times it can be confusing, leaving us weary and exhausted beyond all telling. God gives to each of us a life to be lived and great work to do at each stage of our life. Some of us start with gusto and fizzle out. Some of us just pretend to run the race, but never really start at all. And some of us grind slowly to a halt in routine. If we cling blindly to what we have, our old ideas, or the ways we have always done things, we will never become what we are called to be. We’ll dry up and die. We were made for more than dry crusts and cold leftovers. I read this piece by Pablo Neruda giving me a new perspective …. “You start dying slowly if you don’t travel, if you don’t read, if you do not listen to the sounds of life, if you don’t appreciate yourself. You start dying slowly when you kill your self-esteem; when you do not let others help you. You start dying slowly if you become a slave to your habits, walking everyday on the same paths…if you do not change your routine, if you do not wear different colors or you do not speak to those you don’t know. You start dying slowly if you avoid feeling passion and their turbulent emotions; those which make your eyes glisten and your heart beat fast. You start dying slowly... read more
