Worth the Fight

A form of letting go is to ‘let it be.’ To breathe in the early morning was to sit on the front porch with coffee and watch the birds feed from the bird feeder. Now my yard is still and quiet. The bird feeder sits on the floor by the back door. The squirrels took […]

God Has Better in Store

I love the way life is our teacher. We can learn so much by paying attention. I noticed the birds hadn’t used the bird feeder in a while. The feeder was introduced in the post It Took Years. It’s a beautiful feeder, but it’s been a battle with the squirrels. They could easily pop open […]

Collect Beautiful Moments

This morning I changed my sheets. As I unfolded them to put them on the bed, they smelled like perfume. It took me back to the moment I first purchased perfume wash.

Find Your Dosha

I didn’t complete all four of the stained glass classes. During the first class, I was with a group of ladies more mature in years than me. The teacher asked us to take turns introducing ourselves, and say why we’re here. Each lady gave a similar answer. Their kids were grown, had left the nest, […]

Before it Breaks

I enjoy fixing things, but have my limits. I’ll begin with the shower from our previous home as an example. The spout didn’t function to the best of its ability. This happened over time. When you turned the water on, it came out of the spout, and into the tub. The little knob you pull […]

Listening for quiet

Making a coffee pour over has a calming effect over me. Once I go through all the steps of setting it up, I’m forced to slow down, and enjoy the process. Watching as the boiling hot water, slowly escapes from the spout of the pour over kettle. It hits the coarse grounds, and they begin […]

Sow Some Seeds (Part 5)

Can you imagine if God handed us the book of our life? We could see from start to finish what our lives would entail. What we would achieve, and when we would die? That would be awful! It would take the will to live out of life, and there would be no mystery to our […]
