The Best Laid Plans

Life is what happens to us while we are making other plans
–John Lennon-

The best and most supportive relationships in the world are the ones that allow you the freedom to go with the flow…

Have you ever had a visitor coming for several days and somehow you just knew that it wasn’t going to happen?

Or have you had a sense that the trip you were taking just wasn’t meant to be?

Though planning is a very crucial and necessary part of our daily lives, we can also get too caught up in following” the plan” that we fail to recognize the clues and indications for change. We all enjoy watching CSI and one of the episodes was about the investigation techniques and how you can’t get so focused in the case going in a certain direction that you fail to see ALL of the Evidence. The same is true with how we live our lives. If you plan too much, you don’t leave room for the special surprises, if you pay attention to the things that knock on your door three times…it could be worth pursuing.

As we have heard numerous times, life is a journey, not a destination. The journey comes from the KNOWING and the MYSTERY.

It does not seem fathomable to us…

A New Place of Deeper Living

A New Place of Deeper Living

As long as we believe the cross is rugged, we will never outgrow the splinters that come with it. We will never learn to go with the “natural grain” of life—a cross of empowerment rather than a cross of deep, wounded rejection and disconnection. Dolly Parton was once quoted as saying, “Get down off the…

To Wish Upon A Star Is Progress, To Know That You Are One Is Evolution

To Wish Upon A Star Is Progress, To Know That You Are One Is Evolution

When this idea came to me, I was not referring to being a celebrity or improvisation management. I was referring to being a unique and unrepeatable creation of Spirit.  When I was a teenager, I loved the crescent moon and star and had posters, rings and necklaces. The symbols were on my state flag of…
