Seasons of Change and Growth

Seasons of Change and Growth

  ~~ ‘Tis the Season… for Change and Growth ~~     I missed blogging yesterday due to other obligations, so in an effort to keep going and not quit, I’m browsing past posts  and selecting some that seem relevant to share again as we enter this month that heralds a change of seasons. I hope this one speaks to you and proves helpful and encouraging!     I am thankful when change leads to growth! It’s not always pleasant–think…

Stay Calm and Stay in the Present

Stay Calm and Stay in the Present

Stay Calm and Stay in the Present!   The levels of stress in the world today seem worse than ever, with natural disasters, crimes of violence, and so many other events that increase our anxiety and ability to cope. Anxiety and stress are dangerous for our health in all areas–physical, spiritual, mental, and emotional.

On This Labor Day – Remembering My Dad’s Passing, 16 Years Ago

On This Labor Day – Remembering My Dad’s Passing, 16 Years Ago

16 Years Ago…       On Labor Day 16 (!) years ago (actually September 2, 2002), my beloved Dad ceased his labors, escaped the suffering of lymphoma, and left the boundaries of this earth to enter heaven’s gates – to touch the face of God, and to return the embrace of the Lord Whom Dad served his entire life.   In a departure from my usual format, because of this day of remembrance,  I thought I would once again…

Do You Need an Attitude Adjustment? My Dad’s Legacy of Gratitude

Do You Need an Attitude Adjustment? My Dad’s Legacy of Gratitude

Attitude Adjustment? OR Attitude of Gratitude?       Do you have an attitude of gratitude or do you need an attitude adjustment? I blogged yesterday about how attitude plays a role in our lives, and can affect whether we block or fulfill our destinies…how “attitude controls altitude.”  It’s also true that gratitude (or lack thereof) affects attitude. That focus brought to mind this post I shared a couple years ago, so I thought I’d update it and share it…

Who Is REALLY in Control in Your Life?

Who Is REALLY in Control in Your Life?

Sometimes Trying to Remain in Control Makes Us Lose Control     Yes, I have experienced this for nearly the whole month of January. Other obligations and circumstances kept taking over, regardless of my attempts to control and redirect them. The result, I confess, was a less than pleasant attitude, and very little activity here on my blog, which is likely obvious to those who visit frequently and/or who subscribe to this blog. Trying continually to grasp and control something…
