Blessed and Highly Favored

There is no better way to understand ourselves than to immerse ourselves in other cultures. I have that opportunity annually as a chaperone for my husband’s High School Model United Nations group when we take them to New York City every March. This year, our 52 students joined over...

How Are Those Resolutions Working Out?

Mid-January Frustrations Plenty of people write New Year’s Resolutions every December. Many others at least talk about having some, or thinking about having them, or telling people how guilty they feel for not having them. ARGHHHHHH!!!! (Charlie Brown sound, if you’re not familiar with that…) January 1st is a...

Judgment v. Curiosity

Knickers in a Twist? Panties in a Wad? Do you enjoy the work of Emma Curtis Hopkins? If you’re unfamiliar with her name, she was a well-known teacher in the New Thought Movement went it was young. One of my favorite sayings of hers is about being in “high...

Can YOU Reach Across the Aisle?

Compromise is Not Defeat We lost a unique and well-known leader this week. Senator and Vietnam veteran John McCain died last Saturday. Even in death, the one Washington has called “The Maverick” for decades, did it his own way. He voluntarily discontinued treatment for his brain cancer and died...

Hurry Up and Wait

What do you do when you can’t do anything about an uncomfortable situation? As I am writing this I am sitting in an airport terminal without electricity and that includes air conditioning. In addition, the airline’s computer systems have gone down in three major cities, thereby causing a stoppage...

Why? Just WHY?!?”

Have you ever heard the expression, “Mind your own beeswax,” or used it yourself? I was an inquisitive child. My grandma Esther would use that phrase on me quite liberally when I was being too nosey about things that she thought didn’t concern me. The phrase is simply a...

Snap Outta It!

Are you longing – even pining – for that one thing that will make everything perfect? Well stop it. It ain’t happening, sugar plum. Forgive me if this week’s blog is a little more “in your face” than normal. It’s meant to be offered in love, but it’s a...
