Rest and Restore

"Rest brings restoration." Words given to me by my Father. Have you ever received a few words that bring an immediate change in perspective? These did for me. In the summer of 2007, after a cycling accident brought many weeks of forced downtime from my active lifestyle, my patience was…

Heaven To-Do

It’s been over a month since I posted here. Call it a pause, a shuffle or a movement of being “unmoved” in my writing. Or, just maybe, I’m working on something that needs a different focus. I’m working on my Heaven To-Do List. Are you familiar with it? "Heaven To-Do…

It Feels So Big…

It feels so big, and me so small. This idea / goal / dream. It’s just little ‘ole me. Steps 1, 2, 3 and the hundreds other, done with trust, perseverance and discipline. That’s what faith is about, right? But now, this one seems BOLD. Well, YES, I believe and…

Pause is Preparation.

It started right after a gallery show featured exhibition of my artwork on July 5, 2019. A creative process that left me wondering…”What’s next?” Enter a time of “Pause.” What is ”Pause?” Well, for me, it was stillness. Listening from within - an inner turning instead of an external tuning.…

I tried soft faith. But it didn’t work.  I call it soft because it’s the kind of faith that’s lukewarm and easy. It’s when you say you are a man or woman of faith, but still act in the world of convenience and ease. You DO when it’s easy. You…

Stay True to Your Faith

Some people won’t understand. Some people will think your choices don’t make sense. Especially in today’s material world for what “most people” view as important. But you know….when YOUR heart is changed and you believe in faith, you gotta stay true to it. It’s being authentic to you. It’s not…

Moving Faith

It’s easy to get off track. You have to keep reassessing your position and your goal. Like your own GPS - “I am here.” And asking: Where is your destination? Am I getting closer? A small shift of movement doesn’t take you completely off course, but with time, a simple…
