I was slowly losing faith in humanity with the constant barrage of inflammatory verbal rhetoric on television, concerning anyone and everyone in politics, lack of compassion and love throughout my daily interactions with others and throughout the world. Keeping this in mind, I would like to share an amazing experience I encountered with an amazing individual on Thanksgiving Day. I awaken every morning uttering thanksgiving for all my blessings and special prayers for all of those I love, so 11/23/17…..

The Millennial Warrior Shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace   Shod means to “bind under” or “strap on”. I have found this to be my favorite piece of armor. I have been known to lay my head on my pillow and sleep like a baby when all hell is raging around me. This peace truly does defy all understanding. This basically is telling us to choose to live a peaceful existence, and be willing to…..

The Millennial Warrior The Armor of God   I gird my waist with the spirit of truth (I accept your word as truth, I reject anything that does not line up with what you say on the subject) I put on the breastplate of righteousness (I ask that you help me make the correct decisions daily to remain righteousness before you) I shod my feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace (I will walk in peace and be…..

A Spiritual Revolution Conclusion   I feel we are all capable of recapturing the joy of our youth.  We must evaluate what robbed us of it in the first place. The culprit could be exposure to toxic notions, ideas or individuals. It could be a societal mindset that as adults we are to keep our noses to the grindstone, producing, never to experience anything fun again. Retraining yourself to see life through the eyes of a child would take cultivating…..

If you recall, I wrote on being creative in my sixth blog of A spiritual revolution. I spoke of retiring from a 35-year nursing career and realizing I had no outside activities that excited me. I vowed to attempt to resurrect the creative side of myself I had abandoned as a child. Well, I went to Hobby lobby and purchased some acrylic paint, canvas, found some images I wanted to sketch and fearlessly started creating. I decided the most that could…..

A spiritual Revolution Be Curious Six     Curiosity is the gateway to knowledge. Children are curious, creative individuals. A child will thrust himself into an activity out of curiosity, without reservation. Young children haven’t a clue they may be incapable of accomplishing a task due to their size, age or mental aptitude. They are not overwhelmed with fear and doubt. The possibilities are endless. They don’t feel they should be good at a task to enjoy it, either. An…..

Spiritual Revolution Viewing the world through the eyes of a child Four   I recall struggling to learn to whistle at around the age of five, and I have been whistling ever since. My maternal grandmother use to tell my mother, ” A whistling woman and a crowing hen, never comes to no good end.” Viewing the world through the eyes of a child would require taking off your blinders. It would require retraining yourself to view the world without…..

I’m stepping out! Define your triggers Once we identify bad behavior or habits in our lives, we must start annihilating them one at a time from our daily routine. Its imperative we identify what triggers the bad behavior or habit. A trigger is to an addict, as a land mine is to a soldier. Both individuals must have heightened senses, warning them of the insidious dangers lurking nearby.

I’m stepping out! Concentrate and commit Each day when you awaken, concentrate on one offensive behavior you wish to work on. After you have selected a behavior or habit you wish to eliminate, commit to resisting the impulse to participate in the behavior throughout your day. Reward yourself when you have successfully made it through a day without participating in the offensive behavior. You must concentrate on one behavior at a time, giving it your full attention. We are all…..

I’m Stepping out! Make a List Make a list of the bad behavior or habits you wish to eliminate from your life. A written list brings clarity and focus to your desired goal. This process is also a written omission, a problem exists. Take one behavior or habit and attempt to eliminate it from your daily routine, minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day and so on. If you find yourself repeating the bad behavior or habit, start over…..
