Prayer Assists

Last year I had my left knee replaced. What a journey that was! I learned to depend on the various assists that were suggested. A walker, physical therapy, the many exercises, learning how to manage stairs and then graduating to a cane. And now, my body moves easily without help. In our prayer life, thereContinue reading “Prayer Assists”

How the Spirit Moves

Each day I sit down to write and I never really know what the subject is. That is the great thing about letting the spirit move you. But how does it happen? I am not a theologian, but I would venture to guess it’s trusting your inner self, the E.T. light that God planted inContinue reading “How the Spirit Moves”

People Who Inspire

I have always followed the teachings of Mother Teresa; well before I was Catholic, her wisdom and love for those who in a ‘lesser than’ position in life has always inspired me. Also Thich Nhat Hanh, a global spiritual leader, poet, and peace activist, renowned for his powerful teachings taught me how to bring peaceContinue reading “People Who Inspire”

Evil in the World

So many tragic events, daily news littered with more shootings, protests, the war in Ukraine, human rights, abuse, complete darkness in the souls of the evil. Where is God in all of this? He is here. He is not the source of evil, and in fact, we each live with “free will,” which in myContinue reading “Evil in the World”

At the end of the day

Have you been kind? Thoughtful? Forgiving? Did you go out of your way to help a stranger? Or were you stuck in a rut, unable to do more than required? We all have days that are upbeat or down in the dumps. All that Jesus asks of us (ALL!!!) is to be His “hands andContinue reading “At the end of the day”

God is in the Details

As I look out my window, I see that our Asian Lilacs are “so close,” ready to pop with bloom any minute now! And the fragrance!!! If the computer had smell-o-vision, wouldn’t that be a joy! Have you ever brought flowers from the outside; in? Did you notice the ants crawling around? Oh great, IContinue reading “God is in the Details”

Holy Spirit

Spoiler Alert: If you haven’t read or seen the movie “The Shack” you may not want to continue on. It took me three attempts to watch the movie because it was too real and heartbreaking. When I finally did, I was thoroughly inspired by the characters. God is a strong Black woman, Jesus; a Middle-EasternContinue reading “Holy Spirit”

Walking with Jesus

I do guided imagery at night sometimes when I can’t sleep. It is also an effective prayer tool. Jesus saw that I was sad, grieving my sister – He asked if I would join Him on a walk. And we did, through beautiful gardens, with fragrant blooms and delightful colors. He told me that theContinue reading “Walking with Jesus”

Moved to Tears

Today in church, I was moved to crying during this song. I have heard before and always have the same reaction. Palm Sunday is such an emotionally potent day. Imagine being Jesus, you arrive to Jerusalem, the people are waving palm fronds at you, laying down their garments for your lowly donkey to walk over,Continue reading “Moved to Tears”
