every day with Jesus…but not as we know it

every day with Jesus…but not as we know it

"Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground." Rumi   Discovering a greater bandwidth I've discovered that while I draw my pictures I feel quiet and content, much the same as I feel when I more deliberately explore...

renovation of the mind

New Beginnings? I said in my last post that new beginnings are here to stay and that I feel like a beginner again. I suppose I need to explain a little of what I mean. One of the things I was alluding to is just that I love to learn and I'm usually absorbed in some...

under the cover of beauty

New beginnings are here to stay. Beauty carries truth to the core of our being and remains there, long after mere information might have dissipated. I was reading a book recently and in it I came across the thought that we should treasure the state of having the mind...

when ordinary life feels like prayer

when ordinary life feels like prayer

My life is a remarkably ordinary life  I imagine you might say your life is too. But what is it that you love to do? Something you know as truly yours, even if it is an activity which seems unimportant to anyone else, you know the value you put on it. Have you ever...

My latest book purchase and current read. Thanks, @TuitNutrition! The first 10 pages are so insightful!

So often I find myself speechless, overwhelmed by the travel ban, shootings of unarmed black folks, mass incarceration, ICE tactics and now everything happening on the border. But I refuse apathy, submission. Even when I’m tempted toward silence, I’ll keep shouting: THIS IS WRONG

Theresa May's silence is deafening as she fails to call out Donald Trump and condemn his cruel, inhumane and despicable actions. I am disgusted that our government will roll out the red carpet for him next month. The thing about integrity is that you can only lose it once.
