To all of my readers, I recently spent some time assisting my  mother-n-law with her daily needs, due to a fractured pelvis. We spent countless hours sitting on her swing discussing her parents, her life as a girl,  and special moments raising her children. Our evenings were  filled with ritualistic activities such as closing all of the blinds, turning on all of the outdoor lights, night lights and removing items close to the night lights to prevent a fire. Bath time was particularly interesting due…..

The Millennial Warrior The Sword of the Spirit   And take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints. Ephesians 6:17-18 The sword of the spirit is both an offensive and defensive weapon. The rest of the armor is for protection, “defensive” from the fiery darts of the…..

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…..

Spiritual Revolution Control your spirit Eleven   Spiritual transformation occurs when we learn how to control our spirit. This requires time, patience and exercising our faith. I like to visualize my spiritual being as a sponge. When this sponge is squeezed by the pressures of everyday life, or the circumstances around me, what comes out? Sometimes I’m surprised at the contents expelled from me. I wonder how that got in there? Well, it gets there by careless supervision. Not being…..

I find it difficult to find information on television that is informative, inspirational and edifying.  As I mentioned in my last blog  “See no evil, hear no evil & speak no evil” I feel most of the production companies  are more motivated by ratings then by truthful, informative or inspirational information.  An exception to this is Oprah Winfrey. Oprah has been a beacon to a wounded generation. She has dedicated her life to providing nourishing life sustaining information to a…..

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…..

Spiritual Revolution Bon Appetit Eight     We are discussing incorporating some life – enriching skills into our daily lives. Our culture has become a toxic environment for the spiritual aspect of our being. We awaken as rats in a maze running our race with vigor, frantically pursuing our societal obligations, constantly bombarded with negative, toxic rhetoric from the news, well-meaning friends, family and co-workers, while missing the amazing journey in the process. If we want to experience a joyful,…..

A spiritual Revolution Be Creative Seven   Some would define creativity at inventing something new. I love taking something old, boring, or discarded and bring life to it. I love refurbishing old furniture, re-decorating a drab room on a dime, and something as menial as having baked chicken one evening for dinner and re-inventing the leftovers into amazing fajitas the following evening. I know, right? I can’t believe I’m sharing this with you! Having the ability to bring life to…..

Spiritual Revolution Faith of a child Three   The faith of a child is not skeptical, fearful or full of doubt. I think our faith is limited, when we are consumed with emotions of fear and doubt due to our current circumstances. The definition of faith is the substance of things hoped for, and the evidence of things not seen. I define faith with my salvation experience. When I embraced salvation, I was hoping for a transformation. What I experienced…..

A wounded culture   Wounded individuals maintain a fighting stance with clinched fists before them, always prepared for an anticipated attack. We are a wounded culture residing in a wounded society, ready to fight when we feel our rights have been violated. I am greatly saddened by the disrespectful response of the passengers in the first class section aboard the American Airlines aircraft, concerning one of our fallen soldiers. I do not believe the passengers in the first class section…..
